or entity represented by the number 20, there is a powerful awakening, bringing a new .purpose, new plans, new ambitions - thecall to action for some great cause or ideal. There may be occasional delays and obstacles to one's plans, but these may beconquered through developing patience (the challenge of the number 20) and by continually cultivating faith in one's own powersto transform. 20 brings the blessing of vivid precognitive dreams, plus the ability to man\fest the happy ones and cancel thenegative ones. It is not a material number, therefore is doubtful regarding financial success. If large sums of money arenecessary for practical support of the new cause or ideal, then one may choose a more positive materialistic number by changingthe spelling of the name, assuming the 20 is the birth number. If the 20 is the name number, then, hopefully, the birth numberwill bestow a more fortunate financial vibration. However, those who are comfortable with their 20 vibration seldom care aboutmatters of finance. Money is not important to them - and the 20 will, as a general rule, provide enough for the basic necessities.

22 - Submission - and Caution
22 is symbolised by the ancients as "a Good Man, blinded by the folly of others, with a knapsack on his back, full of errors." Inthe image he seems to offer no defence against a ferocious tiger which is about to attack him. It's a warning number of illusionand delusion. It indicates a good person (or entity) who lives in a fool's paradise; a dreamer of dreams who awakens only whensurrounded by danger, when it's often too late. It warns of mistakes in judgment, of placing faith in those who are nottrustworthy. If 22 is the birth number, the person it represents should exercise caution and watchfulness (since the birth numbercannot be altered) in both career and personal matters. The karmic obligation here is to be more alert, to curb "spirituallaziness,» and develop more spiritual aggressiveness - to realize your own power to change things, to prevent failure by simplyordaining success. When this personal responsibility is recognized, practiced,. and finally mastered, the 22 person can be incontrol of events, no longer blinded by the folly of others, and will see ideas achieved and dreams realized.

It denotes gainthrough romance, the law, or the arts, and a magnetism which is extremely attractive to the opposite sex. The 'only warningrelated to the 24 is self-indulgence and a certain arrogance in love, financial, and career matters, because everything comes soeffortlessly. It's wise to remember that if the 24 is abused in the present life, it could revert to an 18 or some other extremelydifficult birth number in the next. So one is warned not to fail to appreciate the benefits of the 23 and the 24 Compoundnumbers, and not allow such good fortune to cause selfishness or a careless attitude toward spiritual values. The temptation toindulge in promiscuity must be avoided; likewise a tendency to overindulgence of all kinds.
25 - Discrimination and Analysis
25 bestows spiritual wisdom gained through careful observation of people and things, and worldly success by learning throughexperience. Its strength comes from overcoming disappointments in the early life and possessing the rare quality of learningfrom past mistakes.

If 26 is the birth number, and therefore cannot be altered, the person is counselled to avoid partnerships and pursuethe career alone, not heeding even the well-intentioned advice of others, but follow only the personal hunches and intuitionalthough these should be carefully examined for flaws before acting on them. 26 people should begin at once to stabilize theincome, to save money, and not behave in an extravagant manner or invest in other people's ideas. Invest in your own future,be generous with others, especially those in need, but also build a solid foundation for the future for yourself. If your name is a26, or if you were born on the 26th day of the month, you should read carefully the section about the numbers 4 and 8 at theend of this chapter. (2 plus 6 equals 8, so 26 = 8.)
