hi aries sun! u've asked something which requires a looong explanation so i'm gonna try to answer your questions as simply and briefly as i can.
first of all, numerology can be 'figured out' by both your date of birth and your name. it's quite simple, if you're born on a single number day, such as 1, 2,...,9 then you're a 1, 2,...,9 person.if you're born on a double number day, then you're influenced by two numbers,the two digit compound key number which is anything from 10-31 and the single number which is reduces to for example 10=1+0=1, 29=9+2=11=2. now i believe i'm quoting linda from star signs (i tend to do that a lot ), basically the single numbers represent how one appears to others, they are the numbers of individuality and personality. the compound numbers indicates the karmic influences that govern one's destiny (influences which can be controlled by one's free will and is using the wisdom given by the ancients in the interpretation of the numbers ).i'll give you an example from a thread in this forum:
john mccain born on 29 august 1936
thus john mccain's single birth number is 29=1=2 and this is what the interpretation looks like:
THE NUMBER 2
The Number 2 vibrates to the Moon. It represents imagination, parenthood, and sensitivity. 2 is the number of conception, childbirth, and dreams.
A person or entity is influenced by the Number 2 if born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th day of any month, in any year. People or entities born on the 2nd are stamped with the distinct imprint of the Number 2. So are those born on the 11th, 20th, or 29th day of they month, but these will, in addition, be challenged to unlock the karmic mystery of the Compound number--11--20 or 29, as the case may be--in their lives. The same is true of the Single and Compound number of the name of the person or entity being analyzed.
The Number 2 attitudes and characteristics will be periodically exhibited by the 2 person or entity, and will interact with that person's or entity's personality in different ways, depending on the individual Sun Sign.
When the Sun Sign is:
CANCER: The 2 vibration intensifies the Sun Sign personality traits.
CAPRICORN: The 2 vibration sometimes opposes the Sun Sign motives, but, with effort, can be used to balance the Sun Sign nature.
SCORPIO, PISCES, VIRGO, TAURUS: The 2 vibration harmonizes well with the Sun Sign character, motives, and personality patters.
ARIES, LIBRA, GEMINI, SAGITTARIUS, AQUARIUS, LEO: The 2 vibration is in sharp contrast with the basic Sun Sign instincts. When it surfaces on occasion in the personality, the behavior is so unusual, relative to the person's or entity's normal or natural Sun Sign attitudes, it startles others, and often surprises the Number 2 person as well.
The Meaning of the 2 Vibration:
The following definition of Number 2 applies to both people and entities. 2 people are dreamers, with a tendency to fear the unknown or the unfamiliar. They are extremely imaginative and inventive, but not always as forceful as could be in carrying out their plans and ideas. Not all, but most 2 people are seldom as strong as those born under the single birth numbers of 1, 9, 3, or 6.
These people possess a very romantic nature, and are secretly what is called "psychic." The intuition is highly developed. One of the traits for 2 people to guard against is "fearing shadows of fears." A 2 person fears every conceivable kind of loss: loss of love, property, money, friendship, employment--loss of loved ones through death of any other kind of separation. These people need a home base, and although they adore to travel the globe as frequently as finances permit, they must have a home to return to. In no way can a 2 person be a "soldier of fortune," to whom home is where you hang your hat. They are fanatically devoted to or involved with (in either a negative or positive sense) the parents, especially the Mother. They make ideal parents themselves, but they must be careful not to smother their children with possessive love.
This is the "chicken soup" vibration, since all 2 people are ultra concerned with the well-being of friend and relatives. They hover over everyone, making sure they don't catch a cold, throw away money foolishly, and so forth. "Have some hot chicken soup and wear your boots or you'll catch your death of pneumonia." 2 people are extremely cautious, and dislike gambling or taking chances. They love money, but like to accumulate it in a safe, stable way, then invest it securely, so it can increase through dividends and interests.
The 2 vibration is secretive, and never lets anyone know what the next move might be. They're experts at wheedling secrets from others, but they won't allow you to invade their own privacy. They'll veer from right to left and backward, then lunge forward in a surprisingly aggressive manner toward their goals. Money seems to stick to them like glue, so you'll almost never find a 2 person (or an 8 person) on public welfare or food stamps. These people are charitable (especially with family), and are prone to heading charity drives, but it chills them to even think about accepting charity themselves. It insinuates a failure to protect their assets, which is a cardinal sin to the 2 vibration. When 2 people learn to overcome fear, possessiveness, and unnecessary caution, their imagination, adaptability, and intuition can carry them to the fulfillment of all their many dreams.
now for his compound number
Grace Under Pressure
The 29 is a number of perhaps the heaviest Karma of all. It tests the person or entity it represents for spiritual strength, through trials and tribulations echoing the Old Testament story of Job. The life is filled with uncertainties, treachery and deception from others, unreliable friends, unexpected dangers--and considerable grief and anxiety caused by members of the opposite sex. It's a number of grave warnings in every area of the personal life and career. When 29 is the Compound Key Number of the name, it's obvious that the spelling of the name should be changed to lift this difficult vibration, unless one is a masochist.
If 29 is the birth number, and thereby unavoidable, conscious effort must be made to dilute and eventually to negate, neutralize, or erase this karmic burden. It can, to a great extent, be eased by choosing a new name (or spelling) with a strongly positive Compound Key Number. Further than this, the person born on the 29th day of any month should do everything advised in Chapter 4 concerning Karma and reincarnation.
In the specific instance of the 29 vibration (bringing with it also the secondary vibration of 11, which should also be read regarding the way to relieve the karmic burden)--remember that the development of absolute faith in goodness and the power of the Self…the constant and energetic cultivation of optimism…will act as a miraculous medicine for the problems of the number 29.
After all, Job's burdens were finally lifted, when he had learned to accept full responsibility for his troubles, and not to blame others or seek revenge for the hurts he suffered. Not only did his long bad-luck streak end at last, he was given back everything he'd lost, several times over. So, if you were born on the 29th, change the vibration of your name to a powerful number, such as 19, follow Job's example, and soon you'll be as happy as--or happier than--anyone else. Interestingly, the name "Job" equals the powerful Compound number 10--a difficult vibration to defeat.
also 29 brings with it the secondary influence of 11:
A Lion Muzzled--A Clenched Fist
This is a number of hidden trials and treachery from others. It represents two members of the same or the opposite sex--or two opposed situations. In either case, compatibility of interest is lacking, and interference from a third force must be conquered. The difficulties may also arise from the illusion of separation. It's necessary to unite divided goals to avoid a sense of frustrated incompletion. The third, interfering force can be a person or an idea; and it can take the form of a refusal to see the other side as an obstacle to harmony. The origin of the separating force must be identified, an attempt made to seek compromise. Occasionally, conflicting desires within one's own self are seen as in a reflecting mirror. Two forces or two desires stand apart and must ultimately unite for happiness. Yet, each must remain individual, even after being joined, for each possesses its own worth.
in addition to the single and compound numbers derived from the day of birth, it is also possible to derive a secondary set of numbers using the entire birth date (these numbers exert a lesser influence, but are part of your numerological profile all the same).using john mccain as an example again, august 29 1936:
august=8 (august is the 8th month)
adding it all together equals 20=2
thus john mccain's numbers using his dob looks like this:
day of birth (priority key numbers):
compound number: 29=11
entire date of birth (secondary key numbers):
now you will notice that while calculating his secondary numbers, i didnt reduce 29=11 to 2,and there is an excellent reason for that. 11 and 22 are the master numbers in numerology and so they can only be reduced to obtain the final single key number of the day of birth.the same goes when you are calculating someone's name,i'll explain a little later how you do that,but first let me give you one last rule, linda called this the zebra rule.and here i will quote her word to word from star signs:
too many people associate numerology with 'lucky numbers'. there is no such thing in numerology as a guaranteed-always-lucky number. however, the single key number of your day of birth does vibrate harmoniously with you in most situations. therefore, not always, but frequently when you keep important appointments on a day of the month that harmonizes with your day of birth, things will turn out to be more fortunate than not.
for example, if you were born on the 1st, 10th or 19th day of any month, you're influenced by the single number 1 and should try to arrange important meetings on those days. if you were born on the 2nd,11th, 20th or 29th, you're influenced by the single number 2, and should try to arrange important meetings on these days -- and so on with all the numbers(Except for the numbers 4 and 8).
my side note: the reason the numbers 4 and 8 are an exception is because they are called the numbers of fate and destiny, chosen by the higher selves of the persons influenced by them as a birth channel owing to karmic obligations and increasing their vibrations is not really a fortunate thing.i wont go into details about it here since i do also want to tell you how to calculate your name numbers, but if you're a 4 or 8 by birth or name, there are tons of threads here on it and maybe i can type out the section from star signs if you're interested.
