   Even at that moment, you were aperson with your own unique character, as unique as your DNA. Everything thatis you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to begin. Yourentire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. Tom, you haveultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potentialcompletely, or to make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends uponyour effort and commitment. You make the decisions to fulfill, to whateverextent, the potential life that exists within you. That is your choice. In thissense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of your birth.

   The Life Path number gives us abroad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and lessons we will encounterin this lifetime. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals theopportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number isthe single most important information available in your Personality Chart!


Your LifePath is 28/1


   Tom, you were born withextra-ordinary drive and determination. You are a born leader. You insist onyour right to make up your own mind; you demand freedom of thought and action.You don't let anything or anyone stand in your way once you are committed toyour goal.


   You assume the responsibility tobe the protector and provider for those you love. You demand respect andattention and become irritated and even domineering when important things donot go your way.

   You need to feel in command ofimportant undertakings, and resist supportive roles. You seek the forefront andthe limelight.

   Tom, you are exceptionallycreative and original and possess a touch of the unusual. Your approach toproblems is unique and you have the courage to wander from the beaten path. Youcan be impatient with your shortcomings and those of others.

   You are very concerned with yourstatus and foster the appearance of success and self-satisfaction. The need toappear well off propels you to strive for growth, success and the finer thingsof life.

   You should watch out for selfishness,conceit and the over-concern with appearance. You must guard againstoverzealous behavior, anger and aggressiveness. If these qualities are notbrought under control you could become excessively domineering, vindictive andeven violent. You perform best when you are left to your own devices. Ideallyyou should own your own business and be your own boss. Hold fast to your life'sdream and work with the determination you possess to realize it. You can becomeoverly stressed by your driven nature. Be careful about the food you eat andmaintain an exercise program you enjoy. Competition sports are often a healthyoutlet for a person with your drive, particularly sports involving running andswimming. Don't let pride and overconfidence be your masters. Remember, yourtalents and abilities are a gift from a higher source, which should promotegratitude and humility, rather than pride and conceit.

   More often than not a person witha 1 Life Path will achieve much in life as long as the drive, creativity, originalityand pioneering spirit are fully employed!


   Tom, your 28 Life Path has allthe qualities of the 1 and 10 Life Path, but with the added capability that youare more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others, and that you areuniquely capable of influencing people around you. You know how to motivate anddirect them. Your sense of business also tends to be better developed than thatof people with a 1 or a 10 Life Path.




   The day you were born bears greatsignificance in understanding who you are and where your talents lie.  The day of birth indicates some specialtalent you possess.  It is a giftto you that will help you along your Life's Path.  Your day of birth is one of your four core numbers -- theLife Path, Expression, and Heart‚s Desire being the other three.  It is the least significant of the fourcore numbers, but perhaps the most finite, in that it reveals a specificability you possess in a marked degree.


YourBirthday is 3


   You have a highly-developedcreative talent.  You are an artistat heart.  You could excel inwriting, visual, or performing arts. If you are not professionally involved in one of these areas, you shouldconsider taking up art as a hobby.

   You are highly-imaginative,quick-witted, and possess the gift of gab.  You have great enthusiasm.  Others find you inspiring and charming.  You are a wonderful salesman.

   You are friendly and sociable,affectionate and loving.  Youpossess a good deal of charisma. You can also be moody and subject to rapid ups and downs.

   Tom, you have a fine sense ofharmony and art in everything that you do -- from your dress to the way youdecorate your home.  You have agift with plants and flower arranging.

   Be careful not to waste time andenergy on trivial matters.  Keepyour long-term priorities in perspective.






   Your Expression number revealsyour physical and mental constitution, the orientation or goal of yourlife.  Some numerologists refer tothis number as the Destiny, because it represents a lifelong target at whichyou are aiming.  You work atfulfilling this potential every day of your life.  Thus, the Expression number reveals your inner goal, theperson you aim to be. 

   The Expression number reveals thetalents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with you when you entered yourhuman body.  Your name, and thenumbers derived from it, reveals your development, as well as the talents andissues you will be working with during this life.

   For those for whom reincarnationis an accepted philosophy, the vibration of your full name can be seen as thetotality of your personal evolution, the experiences, talents, and wisdomaccumulated over many life times. Every experience, no matter how great or small, along this evolutionarypath has influenced your development, and brought you to your current state ofbeing.

   The Expression is your being; theLife Path is the major lesson you are attempting to learn this timearound.  Time allows the gradualemergence of your personality.  Byreading the Expression number below, you will come to understand your basicnature and the abilities and issues inherent in your being.


YourExpression is 29/2


   Tom, yours is the most highlycharged Expression number of all. You are like a lightning rod, attracting powerful ideas, intuitions, andeven psychic information like unpredictable bolts.

   You are a powerful presence withoutany awareness on your part of having personal power.  You are a channel for higher vibrations.  But in order to be emotionally andpsychologically at peace, you must learn to control that flow of energy.  You possess a bridge between theunconscious and the conscious.  Thetrouble is that the unconscious is an infinite resource, while consciousness bydefinition is a limited arena.  Thetwo are therefore at odds until they can learn to live in harmony with eachother.  This is where control comesin.  Until you are able to controlthe flow of energy from this infinite source, you may feel like a victim of itswhimsy, thrown about by emotional turmoil and nervous tensions.

   Tom, you have always sensed thatyou are different, but it was an indefinable feeling.  You are enormously sensitive and aware, especially as achild.  This made you vulnerable toall conflicts and painful situations. For most of your upbringing, however, you did not realize that otherpeople did not possess the same sensitivity, nor did they see the same thingsyou were seeing.  This caused agreat reservoir of emotion that was dammed up behind an inability to expressyour feelings, even to yourself. For this reason, most 11 Expressions have a difficult childhood.  Your extreme sensitivity made you veryshy as a child.  This usuallymanifests in adulthood as hesitation and acute vulnerability.  You are very careful about sharing yourfeelings with others and choosing your friends.

   You compensated for your sense ofseparation in childhood by creating an elaborate fantasy world.  You daydreamed more than otherchildren.  You have a livelyimagination and even in adulthood have a hard time separating reality fromfantasy.

   Tom, your challenge is to bringforth your primitive, earthy strength. You need to be grounded in order to deal with your lightning bolts.  The more you are able to call upon yourinherent human strength, the greater your capacity to take advantage of yourextremely sensitive awareness. Once this is accomplished, your antagonist becomes your benefactor.

   You are highly emotional anddependent upon relationships. Emotionally, you go up and down with the fortunes of your love life.

   You are idealistic, impractical,and at times disorderly.  You areoften unrealistic in your expectations.

   Your reasons for doing things areusually born of a mixture of logic, emotion, and intuition, which can rarely beexplained satisfactorily to your more rational associates.

   The 11 Expression is the numbermost dependent upon other core numbers in your chart for insight into yourvocation.  The 11 charges everyarea it enters, but it needs a grounding vocation and discipline to beeffective.

   A balanced 11 is one of the mostunique and impressive of all people. It is gifted with insight and illumination, which it can transmit toothers.  This makes you a naturalteacher in whatever area you enter.




   Your Heart's Desire is the inneryou.  It shows your underlyingurge, your true motivation.  Itreveals the general intention behind many of your actions.  Consequently, it dramaticallyinfluences the choices you make in life. The Heart's desire is seen as part of the larger picture, called the corenumbers, which includes the Life Path, Expression, Day you were born, andPersonality.  But each points to adifferent aspect of you.

   The Expression number revealsyour talents and abilities, and your general direction in life.  The Life Path is the central lesson youcame into the world to learn.  TheDay you were born is very closely connected to your Life Path.  It reveals specific talents youpossess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path.  The Personality reveals how people tendto see you.  It also demonstrateswhat characteristics you are projecting to the world.  The Heart's Desire demonstrates the identity of the soulthat joined the earth -- you, the spiritual being.


YourHeart's Desire is 22/4


   Deep inside, you long to createsomething that will have a lasting impact on the world.  Whether it is a political movement, abusiness, or a philosophy, you have a strong inner drive to manifest somethingof major importance.

   Like the 11, yours is a MasterNumber, possessing all the intelligence, sensitivity, and electric creativitythat such a power would suggest. Tom, you have the inventiveness of the 11 and the down-to-earthpracticality of the 4.  Thiscombination can make you supremely capable of making your ambitions a reality.

   The demands of this Heart'sDesire are as enormous as its potential. What will be required from you to fulfill your noble ambitions isnothing less than a commitment of your entire being.

   The path you have chosen is notan easy one.  You need time todevelop, and you are unlikely to begin to fulfill your ambitions until afteryou have reached a certain level of maturity.

   Whether you know it or not, youpossess great power within your being. You were born with this power in a latent state, but on some level youwere aware of it.  Early in life,this power manifested itself as awkwardness and a discomfort inside ofyou.  Your self image has always beenone of contradictory extremes: on one hand you sensed your uniqueness andpotential; on the other you may have felt insecure and perhaps even inferior.

   This paradox has caused waves ofself-doubt and lack of confidence. But it also is a powerful generator of energy that, when combined withthe higher characteristics of the 22, can become a dynamic and unrelentingforce.  In order to channel suchgreat power, you need a noble goal for which to aim.

   Tom, you will probably try yourhand at several different kinds of work before you rise to the challenge ofyour true ambitions.

   You can be a great leader,inspiring and motivating with your vision and work ethic.  Your ideas are so creative and superiorthat they inspire enthusiasm and sometimes even devotion among your co-workers.

   You should be involved in largeenterprises or governmental institutions. You have the organizational diplomatic skills sufficient to keepdifficult and delicate projects on track.

   Once you come into possession ofyour full power, there are many psychological and spiritual pitfalls to befaced.  You can become arrogant andsuperior.  You can become deludedinto thinking that your judgment is beyond question, and that the advice andsupport of others is unnecessary. You may seek to control all power in a given enterprise.  This dangerous and egocentric attitudeis sometimes even extended to family members who you may seek to keep underyour thumb.

   Tom, your challenge, once youhave begun to use your true gifts, is to remain humble in the face of yoursignificant accomplishments.

   You perform best when yourdomestic foundation is stable and supportive; it is very important to have apartner who shares your dreams and has high degree of strength and independenceto keep up with your drive.

   Challenges somehow draw the bestout of you.  Your human qualities-- creativity, humility, understanding, and compassion -- increase with thelevel of your performance. Therefore, commitment to excellence is central to your success and innerdevelopment.




   Your Personality number isderived from the consonants of your full name at birth.  Your Personality is like a narrowentrance hall to the great room that is your true nature.  It is those aspects that you feelcomfortable sharing with people at the outset of a relationship.  With time and trust, you invite othersinto the deeper aspects of your nature; you reveal more of who you really are,in effect, your Heart's Desire, Expression, and so on.

   Your Personality number oftenserves as a censoring device, both in terms of what you send out, as well aswhat you allow to approach.  Itdiscriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heartand mind.  For this reason, yourPersonality is usually much more narrow and protective in its definition thanthe real you.  It can screen outsome of what you do not want to deal with -- people or situations -- but italso welcomes those things that immediately relate to your inner nature.

   Your Personality number alsoindicates how others perceive you. No one can be objective about himself or herself.  Even our closest friends and relativeshave trouble describing how they see us.


YourPersonality is 16/7


   Tom, you seem mysterious anddifferent.  People see you asserious and studious.  You arehighly independent and self- sufficient. Your exceptional intelligence and wisdom are quickly noticed, peoplerespect you.  You are not one toattract people on the basis of your warmth or compassion -- though you may beloaded with both -- but because of your obvious insight into life's mysteries.

   You are hard to get to know.  You are often withdrawn.  It is common for people to see yourfocus turn inside of yourself in the middle of a conversation.

   You have the makings of anintellectual and an aristocrat but you have to guard against arrogance and anattitude of, "I've got it all figured out".

   There have been periods in yourlife when you had little concern for your clothing or fashion, while at othertimes you are very aware of your clothing and use it to make a specificimpression.

   You appear dignified no matterhow you dress., but a well groomed seven with a touch of dash definitely has anadvantage.  Your confidenceincreases when you know you are well dressed.

   Tom, you are recognized asspiritual and religious, with your very own ideas regarding the purpose of lifeand the Creator.

   You are an inspired speaker, butonly when discussing subjects that really interest you.  Otherwise, you are not one for chatter.

   Your love of knowledge and wisdomshows.




   Your Maturity number indicates anunderlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces around age thirty tothirty-five.  This underlying goalbegins to emerge as you gain a better understanding of yourself.  With self-knowledge comes a greaterawareness of who you are, what your true goals in life are, and what directionyou want to set for your life. This, in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity: You no longer waste timeand energy on things that are not within your own special identity.

   No matter what your age is atpresent, your life is being channeled in a specific direction, toward a veryspecific goal.  That goal can beseen as a reward or the fulfillment of a promise that is implicit in yourcurrent efforts, often without your knowing it consciously.  While the characteristics of thisnumber are usually visible during childhood, we tend to lose sight of theseaspects until later in life.  Butour lives are always being affected by this influence, nonetheless.

   Your Maturity number begins tohave a more profound impact on your life after the age of 35.  The influence of the number increasessteadily as you grow older.


YourMaturity is 3


   As you mature, Tom, you will findyourself becoming increasingly extroverted and optimistic about yourfuture.  Your self-expression andcreativity improve markedly.  Youmay become inspired to take up some type of artistic endeavor, such as writing,acting, or music, if you are not already involved in one of these areas.

   Your ability to communicate willsubstantially improve.  You arenaturally more fluent and may find yourself dressing with a certain flair.  Be careful not to fall victim tosuperficial appearances, or chasing after glamour and extravagance.

   With a 3 Maturity Number you canlook forward to a pleasant and social latter part of life.  Your attitude will be increasinglypositive and your popularity will rise.

   If you already have several 3s inyour chart, especially in your core numbers, you may have a tendency to scatteryour energies and take your responsibilities less seriously.  If you have few 3s, or are missing 3sentirely, you will experience a great relief from the tension and seriousnessof life.  You will be more relaxedand capable of enjoying life.

   The 3 Maturity Number is ablessing in the latter part of life. It promises enjoyment, close friendships, and much happiness.




   Numerology is based on theunderstanding that we enter life with certain strengths and weaknesses.  Karmic lessons are areas that we arecurrently weak in and must be faced and worked on in this life.  There can be more than one KarmicLesson.  These are indicated by theabsence of certain numbers in your name.

   The letters and numbers of yourname point to talents and abilities that you possess.  These characteristics can be compared to a workshop in whichcertain tools are available to you. Missing numbers, those that are not represented in the letters in yourname, imply tools that are unavailable, and must be learned and mastered duringthis lifetime.

   You may well recognize yourKarmic Lessons as weaknesses you have learned to overcome in the course of yourlife, however, the challenges implied in your Karmic Lessons will continue tocome up occasionally for the rest of your life.


(There are no KarmicLessons hidden in your name.)




   Your Hidden Passion reveals oneor more special strengths and talents that you rely upon and are available toyou.  The Hidden Passion representsyour specific field of expertise, or a concentrated talent. 

   Metaphorically, this talent canbe seen as having a power all its own to shape your life.  Its existence gives you a strong desireto develop and to express that particular ability.  Having the talent demands that you express it, that youexperience this part of you, and that you live according to its nature.  In this way, the Hidden Passion shapesyour personality, and guides your life.


YourHidden Passion is 9


   Warm, generous and compassionate,you would do well and be quite happy in any undertaking that not only suppliesyou with a decent living but also is for the good of all.  Tom, you are artistic, the nine isresponsible for many of our creative geniuses, however these talents are oftensuppressed, sometimes coming to the surface at middle or old age.  You have a strong desire for insightand universal knowledge.  You areemotional, your feelings are not always sensible and they too are oftensuppressed.  You can get caught upin dreams and ideals without being practical but with enough fire andenthusiasm to attract support. Your oratorical abilities save many a situation.  You are driven to do your own thing andare quite independent.




   People experience differentinternal responses to life's challenges. Some withdraw from difficult situations to think them through; otherswithdraw from their emotions, to try and keep themselves from feeling anything.  Some explode with emotions, but allowthe explosion to pass quickly.  Otherslinger with their feelings, holding on to them well past the time they shouldhave let them go.

   Very often, these are conditionedor emotional responses that emerge without thought or analysis.  Maturity and self-development help usto learn new and more effective methods of handling our world and the problemswe confront.  Your Balance numberprovides you with the guidance on how best to deal with difficult orthreatening situations.


YourBalance is 9


   You will find your solutions byempathizing with the concerns of others Tom.  You have a gift for understanding a wide variety of peopleand seeing the broader picture. But too often you retreat to aloofness, a kind of Ivory Tower, in whichyou regard yourself as an aristocrat, above the masses.  Tom, you will find your solutions bycoming down to the practical reality where people live.  It is in giving that you will receive.




   The Transits are the individualletters of your name that combine to form the Essence, which is the number thatreveals a great deal about your year ahead.  Your name can be seen as a piece of music that vibrates intime.  Each note, or letter, has aspecific duration and influence over the course of your life.  Tom, your life, therefore, can be seenas a musical score, with the individual letters making specific contributionsat given points, just as notes in a musical piece are played at specific pointsto give a piece of music its rhythm, character, and nuance.

   The Transits appear as part ofyour Progressive Chart and will tell you much about specific influences takingplace in your life during given years.




YourPhysical Transit for age 43 is S

   Tom, your feelings run deep andyour awareness is higher than usual. It is a period of rebirth and awakening, especially of hidden aspects ofyour personality.  Freedom in avery real and lasting sense can be your reward.  You will experience sudden changes in all aspects of yourlife, accompanied with spiritual and mystical revelations.  Your dreams may be rather intense andshould be looked into for messages and understanding of your unconsciousness.  There will be confrontations withstrong-willed people to test the strength of your convictions.  This is an exciting time full ofsurprises and extraordinary events.


YourPhysical Transit for age 44 is T

   This is a time of strain andhigh-strung emotions.  Tom, you arewilling to sacrifice and carry your burdens heroically, but you will have toguard against self-pity.  You willbenefit from solitude and meditation. You are looking for new activities and are eager to learn.  You have a strong desire forknowledge.  This is a good andrewarding time for business and new partnerships but you have to guard yourterritory against those seeking to interfere in your work.  There will be opportunities to traveland see the world.


YourPhysical Transit for age 45 is T

(The PhysicalTransit for age 45 is the same as that for age 44, as described above.)




YourMental Transit for age 43 is U

   This is an intuitive andsensitive time in which you may find yourself unwilling to put out mucheffort.  Tom, you lack motivation andinitiative.  A lot of old and longforgotten emotional issues may surface. People you have not heard from in a long time will call upon you.  Relatives and family may require effortand attention.  You have muchcreativity and enhanced self-expression. Use it and promote yourself.

   This Transit offers anopportunity for great achievements in the arts, especially in writing, actingand music.


YourMental Transit for age 44 is U

(The Mental Transitfor age 44 is the same as that for age 43, as described above.)


YourMental Transit for age 45 is I

   This is a very emotional timewith many ups and down's.  Tom, youare high-strung and vulnerable to stress. You are somewhat accident prone. You need to develop calmness, centeredness, and an acceptance oflife.  You must control your moodsand not slip into feelings of self-pity and insecurity.  At the same time you are verycompetitive and have the opportunity to achieve success and financial reward.

YourSpiritual Transit for age 44 is E

(The SpritualTransit for age 44 is the same as that for age 43, as described above.)


YourSpiritual Transit for age 45 is R

   Tom, you have much understandingand insight during this time.  Itis a time in which you have to deal with money, power, and authority.  You have an opportunity to elevate yourfinancial status and personal growth. This is a time in which you will meet the best and the worst.  You have to exercise caution in everythingyou do and every decision you make. Be aware of your surroundings.




   The Essence Number and thePersonal Year Number are the two essential indicators of the forces that willinfluence your life during the course of any year.  While the Personal Year runs from January to January, theEssence is most strongly felt from birthday to birthday.  For example, if your essence number is8 for the year 1988, you would begin to feel the influence of that 8 mostpowerfully after your 1988 birthday. The influence would begin to wane during 1989 and would finally end atyour birthday of 1989.

   The Essence number indicates thelessons you will be dealing with during that year.  It says a great deal about how you will perceive yourenvironment.  It also gives clearadvice on how you can be most successful during the year, that is, which typesof behavior will be supported by your milieu, and which ones will be lesseffective.


YourEssence at the age of 43 is 9

   This is a period during whichyour ideals will be tested and forged anew.  Tom, you will be broadened in ways that you would never havedreamed possible.  You will likelyexperience a dramatic psychological and spiritual expansion.  Old relationships that no longer have aplace in your life will be let go of. Even old habits or characteristics that you believed were fundamental toyour identity seem to evaporate.

   There is a need to forgive thosein your past and let them get on with their lives, as you must with yours.  Hanging on to negative attachments,either out of anger or a sense that justice has not yet been done, will bringyou much misery and, if the courts are involved, protracted lawsuits.

   You now have the ability to reachout to the masses.  This is a timerequiring much self-sacrifice and service to others.  You are deeply affected by the pain and sufferings ofothers, and will feel a need to change your milieu or society for the better.

   Those in the arts, especiallyactors, writers, and other performers, will see an enhancement of their talentsand the opening of many new opportunities for advancement.

   Tom, your focus is outward in abig way.  Teach, perform, andadvance society in your own way. Dedicate yourself to a higher cause.  These are the areas that will meet with much success.

   Conversely, selfishness,negativity, and pettiness will blow up in your face.  The time demands a broad view of life.  You are now the visionary, who must seethe greater trends in humanity.

   Out of this will come muchcompassion for all.  This is thelesson of the period: That as you work for the greater good of society, youwill be personally rewarded, so much so that your cup will runneth over.


YourEssence at the age of 44 is 10/1

   Tom, you will now begin anentirely new phase of your life. You are on the threshold of a new beginning.  Not only will fresh ideas come into your life, but you willaccept and even embrace them.  Itis a time of radical change, and in all likelihood you are ready for it.  Now is the time to advance the new, andlet go of the old.  All inefficientmethods will have to be eliminated from your life.  In the same way, you must let go of relationships that nolonger serve your future.  Discardhabits and liabilities that you have been holding on to.  A new identity is emerging, one that isefficient, innovative, highly creative, and courageous.

   Your leadership qualities willrush to the surface.  Yourenvironment will demand that you stand up to challenges, and face difficultieshead on.  You can no longer hidefrom the truths of your life.  Thefacts are now blatantly clear.  Tom,you must make a stand.  Change is agiven.  But you possess the powerto make those changes.  All youneed is the will and the energy to enact your plan.

   This is a period of struggle andgreat reward.  You have the chanceto achieve independence.  But itwill not be handed to you.  Youmust wrest from old habits and inertia of the past.

   As with all beginnings, this onewill be marked by false starts and blind alleys.  You will be forced to start again and again.  You are like a baby learning towalk.  There will be falls.  You will have to persevere.  This is a period in which yourwillpower will be tested.  Tom, youare, in fact, forging your own determination.  You must not give up. But the rewards are great. The general influences are raising you to new heights of independence,courage, and self-esteem.  At theconclusion of this 1 Essence, your self- knowledge and self-respect will begreatly increased, as will your capacity to stand on your own two feet.


YourEssence at the age of 45 is 20/2

   Tom, you must learn to cooperatewith others in order to accomplish some greater good.  This is not a time to lead, but to follow.  You must be content to draw yourguidance from the environment and those in positions of greater power.  You must maintain your own center, butavoid arrogance, rigidity, and stubbornness.  The more you insist on your own priorities, the moreresistance will you meet.

   This is a period ofpartnerships.  Your success dependson your ability to work with others.

   Tom, you will be extremelysensitive and intuitive.  Yourpowers of understanding will be at an all-time high.  These abilities will give you the insight you need toperceive subtle changes in people and situations.  You will therefore be better able to adapt to changingcircumstances.

   Your intuition makes it possibleto accomplish great tasks, even though you may not be in a leadership role.  The reason: you instinctively know howto react to change, and to gently advise people to go in the right directions.

YourPersonal Year for 2006 is 9


   This is your year to finish upall unfinished business, Tom, to clean house and make room for new things.  On a material level this is a good timeto get rid of unnecessary weight, to give away or sell what you do not needanymore and to pay off old debts. On a spiritual level you will experience a different modealtogether.  Your attention shouldturn to others and their needs, find ways to be of help and give time andenergy to worthwhile causes.  Youmust lighten your burden of questions and doubts and the best way to do so isby directing your attention to another direction, away from yourself and youwill find yourself becoming lighter and more in touch with your self.  This is a time of completion, problemscan be solved and over with, strained relationships relax or disappear, thesources of stress in work or business can be better understood and dealtwith.  Be social and communicative,enjoy music and other arts.  Tom,your creativity is higher than usual. There can be some difficulties this year due to your desire to faceobstacles and overcome them, decisions have to be taken and courage andstrength may be severely tested several times, this is not going to be an easyyear all the time but you will feel relieved and on the brink of a positivebreakthrough by the end of this year. This is the end of a nine year epicycle and will you will feel manytimes the excitement of a new and promising era when optimism is your friendbut you will also experience the fear of letting go, however the more you letgo the more room there is to be filled during the next epicycle.




YourPersonal Month for August 2005 is 7


   Tom, August is a 7 Personal Monthin an 8 Personal Year.  Theemphasis changes from outgoing to inward seeking.  You are more serious now and self-reflective.  You question the wisdom of some of yourdecisions and choices made during the past ten to twelve months.  You keep to yourself, and are generallyless social.

   You are engrossed in your workand feel a need to do a better job. Your desire for perfectionism is strongly enhanced, which results inself-criticism and impatience with others.  At the root of this change in attitude is a spiritual needfor clarity and understanding.  Youwant more security, both internally, as well as in your more worldlyroles.  Tom, you would do wellspending some time alone for contemplation and meditation.  In this respect, August stands outduring this otherwise "material" year.

   Family and friends take abackseat during this period.  Thereare strong feelings connected to your relationships with your loved ones, butthese are experienced and expressed more subtly.


   Romance becomes moreserious.  You share mental,spiritual, and emotional experiences on the deepest level.  There is no room for superficialexchanges.  Your relationship withthe person you are attracted to intensifies and becomes stronger as a result.


YourPersonal Month for September 2005 is 8


   Tom, September is an 8 PersonalMonth in an 8 Personal Year for you. This is a month with great potential for your career and finances,especially to increase your finances for the long-term.


   It is a time to be aggressive andoutspoken.  Your authority isneeded and you will have to apply yourself one hundred percent.  However, there is another side to thismonth.  You may feel that you havereached the pinnacle of your career, or that work and other areas of your lifehave become dull and monotonous. You may feel you need a break.

   You are approaching a time ofdeep inner change.  Several timesduring your life you have reached a point at which you need to break out of acocoon.  All evolution is gradual,but periodically interrupted by sudden bursts of growth, or change.

   Tom, you are at a stage in yourlife when you feel ready for such a change.  However, you are not clear about the true nature of thischange and, while you may feel inspired to force some practical changes now,you should approach this with care. Avoid impulsive decisions as well as any contractual arrangement thatwould tie you down for a long time.

   You need to rely on your ownstrength and feel confident that you have a certain amount of control over yourown future.  You should relax andlet things develop at their own pace.

   Social events are highlyfavorable and there will be ample opportunity for that.


YourPersonal Month for October 2005 is 9


   Tom, October is a 9 PersonalMonth in an 8 Personal Year.  Itmarks the beginning of the end of a certain era in your life.

  Now you begin to let go of certain expectations you have long held.  There is a feeling of emptiness and of"what now?" The time has not yet come to respond to these feelings ina practical way.  Now is the timeto begin to become comfortable with the need to change.  The changes contemplated involve bothpersonal and professional life.

   For these reasons, October couldbecome an emotional time.  Somemelodrama and role playing is actually a subconscious way for you to test thepeople around you, and the depth of their commitment.  You are also testing your own position towards people,career, environment, spiritual beliefs, and other aspects of your life.  You have, even if you are not aware ofit, already begun the process of selecting what you want to remain in your lifeand what you want to discard.

   This process, which continuesthrough different stages over the next 2 years, is natural and nothing to beafraid of.  You are entering aperiod of reawakening.  This meansa letting go of some of the comfort and security that surrounded and protectedyou for many years.

   Start giving some of your energyto a good cause that benefits others. Ultimately, it will benefit you. It takes the spotlight of your doubts and questions, and gives youstrength and confidence.

   For October, practical matterscan be handled with ease.  It ismuch better to pay off debts than to incur new ones.  Completion is favored over new starts.  It is a time to tie up loose ends, notso much to begin new projects.  Itis a time to clean up and prepare for new things coming into your life.


   Tom, you are not in the rightmood to pay much attention to romance or personal relationships of any kind,unless it's to test the strength of the relationship.

   You may be a little judgmentaland self-righteous and will need to guard yourself against this sort of thing.


YourPersonal Month for November 2005 is 1


   Tom, November is a 1 PersonalMonth in an 8 Personal Year.  Itbrings confidence, independence, and individuality.  Now, you are driven to take up new challenges, tackle newprojects, and get a firm grip on your life.  You have energy to spare and you use this to inspire andmotivate others.

   You feel that there is nothingyou can't deal with.  You areambitious and result-oriented.  Youreceive an opportunity that will have long-ranging effects on your life.  You are confident, but also a bitstubborn and hardheaded.  You aredirect and not as sensitive to other people's feelings as usual.

   This is a good time for businessand finances.  It is a time to bedecisive and adventurous, not a time to be conservative.  Courage and originality are keyingredients needed to take full advantage of this cycle.  You are more stable and outgoing inyour personal life, much to the delight of friends and relatives.

   You are also generous andinspiring, but not in the mood to deal with the petty stuff.  You are a little impatient.

   Romance may prove to be the mostchallenging aspect of this period. The chances of meeting someone are good, but your approach may be tooaggressive and lacking in sensitivity.

   If you are married, or otherwisecommitted, a small warning: not everyone is on the high curve of his/her cycle,so be patient.


YourPersonal Month for December 2005 is 2


   Tom, December is a 2 PersonalMonth in an 8 Personal Year and shifts the focus to relationships and allaffairs of the heart.

   Co-workers are demanding, notonly in work-related matters, but also in personal areas.  You may catch some flack, or become involvedin conflicts that don't appear to have anything to do with you.  All your tact and diplomacy are neededto maintain harmony in the work place. However, you are better equipped to deal with sensitive affairs thanusual and you manage to diffuse most of these potentially explosive affairs.

   Pretty much the same experiencesawait you regarding relationships with relatives and friends, but here too, youare able to keep the peace.

   Tom, your intuition andsensitivity are your strongest assets during this month.

   There is, however, also a need tostand up for yourself.  Someone isabout to claim credit which rightly belongs to you.  Again, diplomacy and tact are required to solve thisproblem.

   This is also a good month fornegotiation and financial affairs, particularly concerning loans and mortgages.

   Romance can be powerful, but maycause problems when money is involved.


YourPersonal Month for January 2006 is 1


   Tom, January is a 1 PersonalMonth in a 9 Personal Year.  Itbrings progress as well as some turmoil. Your career offers opportunities that should be taken advantage of, butyou may also be wondering if you want to continue on the path you havechosen.  A change of course may betaking shape.  You may want tofocus more on the ideas you had at the beginning of your professionallife.  Even if you do not have acareer, a return to the idealistic views you had at an earlier time cannot beavoided now.

   A similar desire for purity andidealism influences your relationships with friends and relatives.  You find yourself confronting some ofthe people close to you.  You maydecide that some of your relationships are no longer desirable.

   You experience emotional ups anddowns, caused by a need for confirmation of your love on one hand, and atendency to be critical and judgmental on the other.  You are aggressive and emotional at times.  This combination may shake thefoundations of many of your relationships.  Undoubtedly, some of these foundations may crack, but otherswill prove to be strong and remain undamaged.

   Financially, this is a time to beextremely careful.

   This is an important and valuabletime, because you are learning much about the true nature of human beings,including yourself.  The challengehere is to see yourself and others in a spiritual light, with love andforgiveness.

   Some people who go through thisparticular cycle experience bitterness and anger.  For others, this cycle brings faith and gratitude.  For everyone, the impressions arelasting.

   Romance is powerful; you see andhear and feel more fully than usual, which brings an added intensity to theexperience of love.

   Tom, March is a 3 Personal Monthin a 9 Personal Year.  It lightensthings considerably.  You are notnearly as vulnerable as last month. You are more playful.  Youexpress yourself easily and you manage to inspire and motivate others.

   You receive some positiveinformation about your career and your financial status.  Meanwhile, you are considering some bigchanges in these areas of your life. You may want to keep your thoughts to yourself, or share them only withone or two of your most trusted confidants.  You are not ready to make decisions or take steps that areirreversible, but that time will come soon.

   This is an exciting time, wheneverything seems more intense, more alive.  You are more creative and communicative.

   Tom, you should take the time toenjoy yourself.  Go on avacation.  Visit friends.  Be social.  Give yourself a break.

   Romance is favorable, but youhave to guard against irresponsible and superficial behavior.

   There is another feeling thatstarts moving to the foreground. You feel a little tired, ready to surrender.  Your energy level is lower than usual and this makes itharder to keep up with your duties and responsibilities.

   However, this is not a good time to slow down.  It is a time that can bring opportunityand an unexpected insight into a new direction in life.  You are at a point in your life whenyou feel that you have been stagnant. Change is needed.

   This month will bring somepractical insight and ideas as to how this change can be accomplished.  This is a good time for businessventures and investment.  It's alsoa good time to work on the house and garden.

   You are at an important stage inyour life where you feel a bit in limbo, but you also know that a change forthe better is imminent.  You feelexcited and confused at the same time.

   You do not really understand whatis going on, and the motivations that have guided you for many years now seemoutdated.  You question yourunderlying values and desires.  Youfeel a loss of direction.  Yourbest approach is to wait things out. Do not start any new endeavors unless you are very sure you will followthrough on them.

   Social events are highlyfavorable.  Tom, you need to bearound people.  You need to beloose and enjoy yourself.  As Imentioned earlier, you are going through enormous changes this year and nextyear, and for that reason, interaction with others is therapeutic.  It helps you deal with the turbulencethat takes place inside.

   An important challenge this monthis to be honest and open in your relationships.   You may tend to bottle-up your feelings.

   This is a good time for careerand finances, even if you feel a lack of interest for these matters.  Romantic relationships are particularlyfragile right now.  However, ifyour love-relationship survives this period, you know that it is based on truesubstance.  It will be stronger andlasting.
