Can Numbers Tell Me About My Future?

“Travel? Romance? Financial Success? Can numbers tell me about my future? “

I have certainly heard that question many times, and I always like to answer by drawing a distinction between “fortune telling” and forecasting. In my opinion, fortune telling can take advantage of vulnerable people. It disempowers them by telling them that this or that will “happen to” them. No one should believe that random events and incidents “happen to them”. I’m happy to say that the readers I know encourage their clients to view divination practices such as tarot, astrology, numerology and other types of readings as a form of forecasting.

Numerology is an ancient science with many applications, one of them being forecasting. Forecasting will validate and affirm our hopes and embryonic plans and dreams. Using numbers as a forecasting tool shows you where to focus your time and energy and how you can make the best use of your current numbers.

Forecasting helps us with our process of awakening as we become aware of possibilities and potential, and begin to realize the magnificent contribution that we can make by living up to that potential. Numbers indicate doors that will open for you at certain stages in your life, but it is always up to you whether you choose to go through those doors or not.

I have met hundreds of clients and students in my years as a numerologist. The vast majority of these men and women have been on track with their sacred contracts, and learning about the numbers of past, present, and future temporary vibrations has given them validation, clarity, confidence, and encouragement. They have been better able to see setbacks and abrupt changes within the context of their soul’s growth.

Read on and learn about one remarkable lady in Japan who had overcome tragedy and was choosing to go through doors that were opening up for her:

During one of my teaching trips to Tokyo, I met a beautiful, serene, and radiant lady who, along with her husband and three year old son, had survived the earthquake in Kobe in 1995. She had lost her home, her parents and extended family, and her business, and a short time later her marriage had ended.

When we looked at her major cycles, (subtle and pervasive themes and influences), we could see a theme of strength and vision in her past, one of healing and spiritual development in her current cycle, and one of service in her future.

When we looked at her previous pinnacles, (external encounters, requirements, and opportunities), we could see that the heartbreaking loss and sacrifice that she experienced before she turned thirty-seven played a key role in enabling her to move forward with her career and personal life.

I’m happy to write that now, in her late forties, as the founder and president of a well-known company with several branch offices in Japan, she is a highly successful and prosperous business woman. Her current number 6 pinnacle is bringing benevolent energy and supportive influences to both her personal and professional life.

She shared with me that she greatly admired Audrey Hepburn and that for a very long time she has hoped that she too would be able to go to Africa and work with the children there.  Most often when we have an enduring desire it is because that is what the universe wants for us. It is a calling to fulfill our sacred contract. By looking ahead at upcoming temporary vibrations, I was able to provide further insight into her future and show her how her numbers fully support her aspirations. By looking at the numbers of her current and upcoming personal year, I was able to help her gain a sense of appropriate timing for taking action toward her goals.

Thankfully, unlike my beautiful client from Kobe, most of us will never experience a devastating earthquake; however, we all experience life altering events and sometimes agonizing decisions. Knowing the numbers of our cycles, pinnacles, and personal years validates our experiences and choices, and shows us how to ride the crest of the wave of energy that is moving us along. Don’t wonder what is causing the pain when you can so easily understand that the numbers offer solutions.

“When nothing makes sense, your numbers will bring you Peace of Mind.”

Healing With Numbers

Numbers offer guidance in all areas of your life, including your health. Just as your personal year number will guide you in arriving at a focus and directing your energy for the best possible results, it will also guide you in maintaining your health.

Your personal year begins on your birthday, your solar return. Calculate your personal year by adding the number of your month of birth, to the number of your day of birth. If your last birthday was in 2013, add 6 to that first total. If you’ve already had your 2014 birthday, you will add 7 to your first calculation.


Dec. 14, 2013:  12+14=26  26+6=32  3+2= 5  This person is in a 5 personal year.

Jan. 3, 2014:  1+3=4  4=7=11 This person is in an 11 personal year

The following descriptors will show you the best strategies for wellness according to the number of your personal year:

1 Turn down the volume on that mind chatter. Be careful not to take on too much. Avoid multi-tasking and be willing to ask for help when you need it. Check into complimentary therapies, and/or bring in some new members onto your personal health care team.

2 Pace yourself. This year favours deep healing at a subconscious level. Classical music is particularly beneficial, as is any kind of sound therapy. Consider hypnosis, and spend time near water.

3 Pay attention and stay mindful of safety. Do not deplete your energy by sending too much of it out in too many directions. Your health is enhanced by laughter and creativity. Playing with children will nurture your own inner child.

4 Structure and routine in any area of your life have a positive healing effect. Take care not to work too hard, and build in time for rest and renewal. Follow through with doctors’ appointments, lab tests etc. Focus on fitness and nutrition. Connect with Mother Earth.

5 External pressures and unexpected events may cause increased stress. Avoid over-indulgence. Physical activity, light, colour, and sound therapies are helpful. You need a change; travel, of long or short duration helps you gain perspective.

6 There may be added responsibilities and/or concerns about loved ones. You may have a tendency to feel depressed or “stuff” your emotions. Bring balance, harmony, and positive energy into your life through tai chi, yoga, music, and the arts. Make your personal environment a nurturing space.

7 You are on a plateau. You need your rest, and quality time to yourself. Avoid being too sedentary as this could cause weight gain and negativity. Choose positive, uplifting movies and books. Hypnosis, journaling, meditation, and swimming will bring clarity.

8 You have ambitious goals, many projects on the go, and possibly some contentious or stressful issues to deal with at work and at home. Listen to your body and pay attention to your physical needs. This can be a good time to lift weights, get to the gym, or join a competitive sports team.

9 You are sending a lot of energy out in several directions and certain events may bring a sense of loss. Schedule time to replenish, connect with healers and light workers, and go on a retreat. Take every advantage of opportunities to rest and heal on all levels.. You will heal yourself as you offer love and compassion to others.

11 Slow down! Don’t get caught up in nervous energy and mind chatter. Be aware of potentially harmful effects of electronic media, as well as certain individuals and places. Connect with light workers and energy healers. You benefit greatly from acupuncture, pranic healing, Reiki, or hypnosis.

22 You are working very hard and may feel inundated with details. Prioritize and manage your time carefully.  Drink water, rest, eat natural foods, and avoid mood swings. This is a watery, emotional vibration. Spend time near water or travel overseas.

33 Sing your song and speak your truth. Listen to trusted health care professionals. You may need to let go of a person, valued possession, or situation that has outlived its purpose and is no longer bringing your highest good. Release with love and compassion, and take comfort in the arts and creative expression.

Numbers and Wine…What’s Your Party Style?

The ancient science of Numerology provides a vast amount of information about all areas of your life.

When you combine all of the digits in your complete date of birth, you get an aspect that numerologists call your life path. Knowing your life path can assist you in finding fulfillment in your life’s work, hobbies and leisure pastimes, and relationships. It indicates areas where you will likely excel, interests that will add enjoyment to your life, the type of life style you embrace, and it may even indicate your preferences in food and wine.

On November 1 (at Crowfoot in the NW) and November 22 (at Shawnessy in the SW), I’ll be working with Mike Roberts, the sommelier at Co-op Wines and Spirits, for an evening of sampling wines and spirits, and numerology readings!

Mike has been given the descriptors for each of the numbers and is bringing his expertise into pairing each number with a special drink. Is your number a sparkling bubbly? An elegant martini?  A rich and subdued Burgundy?

If you are able to attend, you can purchase tickets on-line by following the links below: – Shawnessy – Crowfoot

Whether you are able to join us or not, be sure to calculate your life path according to directions below and then read below to find out what the numbers say about your “party style”

We calculate the Life Path by adding all of the digits in your date of birth. Start with the corresponding number for the month that you were born. Add the day, and then the year, placing a plus sign between each digit. You will most likely end up with a two digit number. Add those two digits together to get a one digit number.

July 22, 1969 would be:

7+2+2+1+9+6+9 =36


Your life path number is 9.

One more example:

February 8, 1972 would be:

2+8+1+9+7+2 = 29


In this case the birth date adds up to the number 11. Both 11 and 22 are called Master Numbers. We do not reduce them to one digit.

1 With a 1 life path, you are fresh and young at heart, and you may be impulsive at times. You are direct and decisive, and you frequently ask “What are we waiting for?”  As a possibility thinker, the words “cutting edge” or “avant garde” apply to you. At work or play you are competitive, independent and ambitious. You are stylish and original. Although you are captivated by all things that are new and modern, including food and drink, you are a leader and will not blindly follow trends.

2 With a 2 life path, you are a team player. At work and when socializing you take a subtle and diplomatic approach. For the most part you tend to prefer quiet companionship. You appreciate music and poetry, and enjoy being near water. You may be shy, but you do possess a degree of personal magnetism. If you are a woman you exude feminine energy, and if you are a man it is likely that you relate well to women of all ages. Although you are unassuming, there is a lot of depth to your character. Your preference for understated elegance will be reflected in your choice of wines and spirits.

3 With a 3 life path, you are a sparkling conversationalist. You are witty, light-hearted, and sexy. You receive a lot of invitations, and enjoy being the center of attention at the many social events you attend. In fact, you may also enjoy taking center stage as a performer. When you are not socializing or performing, you are probably doing something creative. You love colour, and whatever you wear, you have a knack for putting yourself together with style and panache. Your drink of choice will reflect your flamboyant and fun-loving personality.

4 With a 4 life path, you are serious, practical, direct, and reliable. You like to be active and productive. You take pride in doing your work to the best of your ability and honouring promises that you have made. Your style is unpretentious. When you are not at work or some formal event, you are probably most comfortable in jeans and T-shirts. You may enjoy gardening, hiking, or nature photography. Wine and food are an extension of your close connection to Mother Earth.

5 With a 5 life path, you hope to be here for a long time, and you’re definitely here for a good time! This is a dynamic and sensuous number. Freedom and independence are of supreme importance to you. You are curious, adventurous, and open minded. You have a wide range of interests and you love to travel. You enjoy meeting new people and having a variety of new experiences. You appreciate vibrant colours and fine textures, and savour rich food and wine.

6 With a 6 life path, you live to connect with others. Ever the gracious hostess, ever the charming and considerate guest, you simply have a talent for putting people at ease. You create beautiful, harmonious environments and love to welcome family, friends, co-workers and members of your community into your home. You are tasteful and elegant in all of your personal choices. Wine and food provide a focus for coming together, for creating and nurturing relationships.

7 With a 7 life path, you have a thirst for knowledge, and a tendency to develop expertise in one or more areas of interest. Your leisure time may be spent in museums and antique stores, or in scientific pursuits. You are secretive, and selective. You do not readily engage in conversation, but when you are with people who share the same interests you are a charming and intelligent companion. You are refined, reserved, and elegant, with a deep respect for family and cultural traditions, and  a preference for quietly elegant drinks.

8 As an 8, you were born to be a class act, and you will never do anything by half measures. You have grand vision, and great expectations. Like the 1, you are competitive, decisive, and ambitious.  You gravitate toward the world of business and financial concerns. You are not at all ostentatious for the sake of impressing others, but whether choosing fashion, furniture, or food and drink, you have discerning taste, and an eye for quality.

9 If you have a 9 life path, it is possible that you have travelled far and wide or at least read extensively about different places and cultures. You are curious, you love people, and you connect with them on a soul level. In fact your compassion and humanitarian interests may take you to third world countries. You will run the gamut of emotional experiences and may attract drama into your life and relationships. You are artistic and romantic, with sophisticated tastes in décor, food and wine.

11 With a master number 11 life path, you are energetic, inspired, and highly creative and original in your thinking. You command a lot of attention, and you may at some point in your life become famous. You are distinctive, demanding, and direct. You value crisp, clear communication, and see through appearances.  You tend to push for perfection in whatever you are doing, and set high standards for yourself and others. Your tastes are also distinctive, your style is unique, and your choice of wines and spirits will likely take you off the beaten path.

22 If your life path is the master number 22 you have highly developed intuitive abilities and strongly grounded feminine energy. You have an expansive mindset, a grand vision, and an ability to handle the details. You work hard on daunting tasks and expect to achieve worthwhile results. This number usually attracts wealth, and often indicates work for charitable causes. You have a broad outlook, discerning tastes, and an interest in international travel, all of which will be reflected in your choices of food and drink.

Chris Hadfield – Meet the Renaissance Man

It was hard to resist the charm and good humour that was “beaming down” to us from the International Space Station from December 9 to May 13. Commander Chris Hadfield became a sensational public figure and a look at his numbers reveals a lot about the heart and soul of a Renaissance Man.

Our full name at birth, (Destiny), reveals a lot about our character, our personality, our way of being in the world, and the qualities that we are developing, perfecting, and exemplifying to others. It tells us how we can become the highest version of our Self.

The name Christopher Austin Hadfield adds up to the Master number 11 and is strengthened by his 29 day of birth. People with strong 11 energy are idealistic and ambitious. They set high standards for themselves and others, and they believe in their dreams. Often they have an electrifying presence, and may achieve fame or at least a high profile within their sphere of influence. They can use their magnetic personality to promote a cause and bring others on board.

Chris Hadfield’s sphere of influence happened to be the entire world, and he certainly brought us “on board”. Thanks to his use of social media and his artistic photographs we all had the opportunity to participate in his incredible voyage. He generated a powerful level of interest and positive support for the space program.

The 11 energy enhances curiosity and brings a level of competence with electronics and photography. It also represents originality and inspired thinking, often expressed through art, poetry, and musical composition.

His Soul Urge is a 3, and this is matched and enhanced by the name Chris. The number 3 favours teaching, conversational skills, and playful expression of artistic talents. Many of us will remember the image of the singing astronaut releasing his guitar to float through the capsule.

Most of us go through life with at least one karmic lesson, and sometimes two or more. Chris Hadfield is one of those relatively few people who have no karmic lessons in his profile. This indicates the potential to be successful in many different areas: art, music, science, philosophy, athletic endeavours, business, leadership, and teaching and many other realms of interest. That is a typical trait of people whom we call Renaissance men and women. Having no karmic lessons also means that he was meant to lead others to a higher level of awareness.

When an individual’s Destiny compliments his Life Path (determined by the date of birth), the potential exists for significant accomplishment in chosen areas of endeavour. The date August 29, 1959 adds up to a 7 Life Path, a number which works very well with his 11 Destiny. The 7 Life Path brings an inclination toward research and investigation, science, spirituality, and philosophy. People with a 7 Life Path have a talent for turning knowledge into wisdom; however, it is not common for them to share their wisdom in such a spectacular fashion. His 11 Destiny and 3 Soul Urge helped him to bring his gifts out for the benefit of the entire world.

Thank you Commander Chris Hadfield for sharing your gifts so generously!
