Numerology of the Birthdate

Johan Oldenkamp & Gary “The Numbers Guy”
In this paper, we discuss the basics of the numerology applied on birthdates. We start with the day number of the birthdate. For that part, ignore both the month and the year in which you were born. A day number is always between a 1 and a 31. When your day number consists of two different ciphers, than add up both ciphers. Keep adding up different ciphers, until the result is a single cipher or a number consisting of the same ciphers. This kind of arithmetic is called numerology. Now, let us look at the meaning of these numerological results. Please understand that there is no such thing as coincidence. For more background information on numerology, please read this paper, also presented to you by Pateo Academia:

When the day number of the birthdate is a 1, 10, 19 or 28, the numerological value of this day number is 1. Mostly, this means that the body of a 1 also looks like a 1, meaning athletic. Mostly, this also means that a 1 wants to be the No. 1: ambitious. A 1 has a tendency to be argumentative. There is also the risk of becoming an alcoholic. Please note that all these words (athletic, ambitious, argumentative, and alcoholic) start with an ‘a’, which is the first (No. 1) letter of the alphabet. The 1 also represents the male energies (or the father).

When the day number of the birthdate is a 2, or 20, the numerological value of this day number is 2. The 2 represents the female energies (or the mother). Mostly, this means that a 2 is good at diplomacy. The 2 stands for keeping the two parts (or parties) in balance.

When the day number of the birthdate is a 3, 12, 21, or 30, the numerological value of this day number is 3. The 3 represents the child energies. Like a child, you will loose your interest rather quickly. A 3 is easily bored. On the other hand, a 3 is also very playful.

When the day number of the birthdate is a 4, 13, or 31, the numerological value of this day number is 4. The 4 represents structure (like the 4 sides of a square). A 4 likes order, and the law that provides it. A 4 likes to work (which is a 4-letter word).

When the day number of the birthdate is a 5, 14, or 23, the numerological value of this day number is 5. The number 5 is open to both sides (up to the right, and down to the left). A 5 is very open-minded. The 5 is right in the middle between the 1 and the 9. Mostly, a 5 is both very sexual and beautiful.

When the day number of the birthdate is a 6, 15, or 24, the numerological value of this day number is 6. A 6 is mostly very concerned about others, more then about her- or himself. A 6 is very responsible. A 6 values home and family very highly. A 6 is the typical humanist.

When the day number of the birthdate is a 7, 16, or 25, the numerological value of this day number is 7. A 7 is mostly an intellectual, being rather smart. A 7 has a tendency to become mystical. In general, a 7 is a loner at heart.

When the day number of the birthdate is an 8, 17, or 26, the numerological value of this day number is 8. The cipher 8 is showing that what goes around, also comes around (just like the symbol of the lemniscate: ∞, which is the symbol for infinity). For an 8, this Cosmic Law of Karma very dominantly settles old scores.

When the day number of the birthdate is an 9, 18, or 27, the numerological value of this day number is 9. A 9 is very adaptable. The cipher 9 stands for completion. In a numerological sequence, the 9 stands next to the 1. Also in real life, a 9 prefers to stands next to the No. 1. A 9 does not aspire a leadership position, because a 9 does not like the pressure. The ciphers 1 up to 9 are the basic numerological values. There are some double-cipher numbers, that have a special numerological value. These are the master numbers of 11, 22, and 33. The master number 11 represents the vision. The master number 22 combines vision with action. Thirdly, the master number 33 offers guidance to the world. Some also consider 44 to be a master number. Others consider all double-cipher numbers to be Master numbers. In general, each double-cipher number combines the quality of the doubled cipher, together with the numerological value of the summation of both ciphers.

The 11 is the most intuitive of all numbers. It represents illumination; a channel to the subconscious; insight without rational thought; and sensitivity, nervous energy, shyness, and impracticality. It is a dreamer. The 11 has all the aspects of the 2 (since adding up 1 and 1 gives 2), enhanced and charged with charisma, leadership, and inspiration. It is a number with inborn duality, which creates dynamism, inner conflict, and other catalyses with its mere presence. It is a number that, when not focused on some goal beyond itself, can be turned inward to create fears and phobias. The 11 walks the edge between greatness and selfdestruction. Its potential for growth, stability, and personal power lies in its acceptance of intuitive understanding, and of spiritual truths. For the 11, such peace is not found so much in logic, but in faith. It is the psychic's number. The Master Number 11 is known as a communicator and the spiritual. It is said that 11s are on a journey to find self-illumination and in their search, they have the potential to illuminate the people they meet along the way. They can also effect spiritual illumination and may be considered by a lot people as a guiding light.

Some of the keywords that describe people with an 11 in their numerology profile intellect, inspirational, illuminating, leader, peacemaker, mediator, a visionary, humanitarian, uplifting, and intuitive. 11s have the potential to live a very social life – this is a result of the 2. However, most 11s are more comfortable in the internal rather than the external world. 11s also thrive in the spotlight and it is common to find 11s among people of note. Inspiration is a key trait for 11s. They have a great potential to inspire the people around them. With the 11s greatness also come their great potential for self-destruction. It is then the challenge for the11 to seek enlightenment in order for them to truly fulfill their potential.

The 22 is the most powerful of all numbers. It is often called the Master Builder. The 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality. It is potentially the most successful of all numbers. It has many of the inspirational insights of the 11, combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the 4. It is unlimited, yet disciplined. It sees the archetype, and brings it down to earth in some material form. It has big ideas, great plans, idealism, leadership, and enormous self-confidence. If not practical, the 22s waste their potential. Like the 11, the 22 can easily shrink from its own ambition, causing difficult interior pressures. Both the 11 and the 22 experience the pressure-cooker effect very strongly, particularly at an early age. It must work toward the realization of goals that are larger than personal ambition. The 22 serves the world in a practical way. Known as the organizer, the 22 has the ability to see things in a grander scale. Like the other master numbers, 22s have the ability to bring a focused and determined mind to any project or challenge. These individuals are often seen as the builders for humanity. Some of the top traits associated with the 22 include organized, master organizer, practical, takes on large scale tasks, practical, ideal, ambitious, takes dreams and makes them come true, inspired, methodical, confident, wise, honest, creative, hard working, and competent. Organizing, whether in large or small scales, is one of the most prominent characteristics of those who have a 22 in their profiles. They are also known as natural leaders. Creativity is also a part of the 22s nature and they are also highly adaptable, this makes life for the 22 more stable than that of the 11. The challenge for the 22 is to keep from feeling overwhelmed, especially when they undertake big projects. We now continue with the other master numbers, though they never appear as a day number of a birthdate. Only by adding up the ciphers from the year- and/or month of birth, these master numbers can appear.

The 33 is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Teacher. The 33 combines the 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others. The 33 in full force is extremely rare. Considered as one of the highest master number forms due to its innate ability for human consciousness, the 33 is the advocate for the underdog. They are also noted for their willingness to give themselves fully to those who need them. Some of the top characteristics associated with 33 include sensitivity, selflessness, altruistic, caring, nurturing, spiritual, protective, forgiving, emotional, and tenderhearted.

They also have the talent for working with humility and great love. People with this master number in their numerology profile also have the ability to see the good in people no matter the situation. Love is also a recurring theme in the life of 33. The 33 connection with the spiritual and the emotional can make it easy for them to be swept into the emotional burden of others. This also makes them an easy target for emotional distresses. They can also easily get caught up with the task of solving each and every one of humanity’s problems. 33s must also learn to fight the natural inclination of not asserting themselves to others when it comes to handling their responsibilities, properties, finances, etc. The lesson for those with a 33 is to learn to love the self first, before they give out love to others.

With a double dose of 4 for steadfastness and an 8 (4+4=8) to denote an affinity towards wealth, 44s have the potential to be a master of both the spiritual and the material. They also have the potential to live the life that most people covet – one that is rich spiritually and emotionally, while not having to worry too much about finances.

People born with a 55 carry the double vibration of the 5 coupled with the strong influence of the 1. The challenge for 55 is to balance out the fickle and freedom loving nature of the 5 with the strong urge to lead and dominate of the 1 (5+5=10; 10 means 1+0=1). People born with this number have a strong potential towards masters of new thought.

The search for peace and love has the potential to dominate the life of those with a 66 in their numerology profiles. Their search for peace and love also has the potential to resonate to many people across the world.

Those with the number 77 in their numerological profile have the potential for mastering spiritual energies. It combines the spirituality and intellect of the 7 and the 5’s love of freedom and affinity for change (7+7=14; 14 means 1+4=5).

The high intellect potential of the 7 (8+8=16; 16 means 1+6=7) is coupled with the 8’s penchant for the material world. People with an 88 have the great potential to connect the energy of the universe with the material world.

People who have a 99 in their numerology profile have the potential to harness their great ability of motivation. These people are often characterized as leaders of leaders and the teachers of teachers.
