About your Personal Reading
This reading was composed for you personally, Della, and is based on your full name
at birth, your date of birth, and the name you now use to introduce yourself. Please
check your birth data on the title page to make sure the names and date of birth used are
If you have two or more middle names or last names, you may find the names strung
together. This is necessary to make Transit and Essence cycles function correctly. For
example, the name John Patrick Henry Hancock would appear on the title page as John
Della, your Personal Numerology Reading describes all aspects of your chart as they
are understood in numerology, accurately and in-depth.
Each chapter starts with a short introduction telling you where this particular number is
found and how it affects you. This is followed by the number itself. Often, you will find a
double digit number followed by a single digit.
The meaning of your number is then explained in easy to read language. Della, you
don't need to know anything about numerology to be able to enjoy and benefit from this
I hope you will enjoy your reading.
If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In
that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality -- the reality of human
life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your
birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life.
Even at that moment, you were a person with your own unique character, as unique
as your DNA. Everything that is you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to
begin. Your entire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. Della, you have
ultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potential completely, or to
make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends upon your effort and commitment.
You make the decisions to fulfill, to whatever extent, the potential life that exists within
you. That is your choice. In this sense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of
The Life Path number gives us a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and
lessons we will encounter in this lifetime. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It
reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the
single most important information available in your Personality Chart!
Your Life Path is 23/5
The key to your personality is freedom. Della, you love travel, adventure, variety and
meeting new people. You possess the curiosity of a cat and long to experience all of life.
You love to be involved in several things at the same time as long as you are not tied down
to any one area. You like change, new things and new horizons. You make friends
easily; your personality is upbeat and often inspiring attracting people from all walks of
life. You have a way of words and an uncanny ability to motivate others. You can be in
sales, advertising, publicity, promotion, politics or any profession that requires your
communication skills and understanding of people. You likely lack discipline and order.
You can also be impulsive, doing or expressing things you regret later. Freedom and a
need for adventure sometimes is not properly controlled by those born with this Life Path,
causing problems with drug abuse, overindulgence in food or sex, or generally abusing
the gift of life. You are sensual and love to taste all of life. Sex, food and other sensory
experiences are essential to the enjoyment of your life. You find it difficult to commit to
one relationship, but once committed you can be as faithful as an old dog. You are
multi-talented and possess a variety of diverse abilities. However, discipline and focus
are the true keys to your success. Without these many of the tasks you begin will remain
unfinished and you will fail to realize the true fruits of your abilities. With hard work and
perseverance the sky is the limit. You may have been perceived as a wild child by adults
and a source of concern by your family. However, do not be obliged to hurry your choice
of career. You are often a late-bloomer and need to experience life before you can truly
know and commit to your heart's desire. Della, your challenge is to learn the true
meaning of freedom. Change is constant in your world requiring adaptability and courage.
Try to maintain an exercise program, keep your body in shape and limber. The flexibility
and durability of your body will promote security and confidence within you. You yearn for
freedom and self-employment attracts you powerfully. Your challenge is to settle into one
area to cultivate your ability sufficiently to earn a living and attain success. Once you find
your niche the motivation and inspiration you supply others will bring you much in return,
you will find your friends and colleagues supporting and promoting you on the road to
The day you were born bears great significance in understanding who you are and
where your talents lie. The day of birth indicates some special talent you possess. It is a
gift to you that will help you along your Life's Path. Your day of birth is one of your four
core numbers -- the Life Path, Expression, and Heartís Desire being the other three. It is
the least significant of the four core numbers, but perhaps the most finite, in that it
reveals a specific ability you possess in a marked degree.
Your Birthday is 26
Della, you have a good sense of money and a talent for business. Your approach to
business is original, creative and daring. You possess sound judgment and need to be in
charge of whatever you are doing. You are a good manager and organizer. You have a
gift for seeing the larger view, but may neglect the details. You are efficient and can
handle large projects, enterprises, or businesses.
You are a realist, self-confident, practical, and highly ambitious. Your challenge is to
maintain a balance between your material goals and the fundamental human qualities of
understanding, compassion and love. Your business life can cause you to become
callous and jaded toward others. Do not let the dog-eat-dog attitude become your only
means of looking at life. All people have talents and karmic burdens -- maintain gratitude
for all that you have been given, and share it with others to the extent that you are able.
You can be very diplomatic and tactful. You prefer to get things done by persuasion
rather than force.
You are dependable and have high expectations of yourself.
Della, you have a need for status and may show off the fruits of your labor with an
impressive car or house. You can easily overdo such ostentation, and may appear
showy in the eyes of others.
You are proud of all you possess. You like to be complemented.
You have strong character, but may be domineering and bossy. You have little
patience with weakness, be it your own or someone else's. Della, you have to be careful
not to be discouraged too easily. Life will test your resolve and your willingness to get up
off the floor after being knocked down. But you possess the strength and courage to
succeed over any difficulty. You do not express your feelings much. It is hard for you to
give up the past.
You are generous and willing to help in a crisis. You can be philanthropic and a pillar
of your community.
Your Expression number reveals your physical and mental constitution, the orientation
or goal of your life. Some numerologists refer to this number as the Destiny, because it
represents a lifelong target at which you are aiming. You work at fulfilling this potential
every day of your life. Thus, the Expression number reveals your inner goal, the person
you aim to be.
The Expression number reveals the talents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with
you when you entered your human body. Your name, and the numbers derived from it,
reveals your development, as well as the talents and issues you will be working with
during this life.
For those for whom reincarnation is an accepted philosophy, the vibration of your full
name can be seen as the totality of your personal evolution, the experiences, talents, and
wisdom accumulated over many life times. Every experience, no matter how great or
small, along this evolutionary path has influenced your development, and brought you to
your current state of being.
The Expression is your being; the Life Path is the major lesson you are attempting to
learn this time around. Time allows the gradual emergence of your personality. By
reading the Expression number below, you will come to understand your basic nature
and the abilities and issues inherent in your being.
Your Expression is 24/6
Della, you are a loving and caring individual with a tendency to put the needs of others
before those of yourself. You are responsible and trustworthy with a high regard for
justice and honesty. Duty will follow you all your life and sometimes feel a little too much
of a burden.
You are artistic. Harmony and beauty are high on your list of priorities. You have
musical talent but the creative talents of a 6 are sometimes left undeveloped or
suppressed as a result of your tendency to sacrifice your time and pleasure to the
service of others. You are highly creative in all areas of life, particularly the visual.
You are also a talented business person and can work methodically toward the realization of
You have a natural gift with flowers, gardens, and animals. Your love of children has
caused numerologists to dub you the "Cosmic Mother or Cosmic Father". The very
shape of the 6 resembles and symbolizes "Pregnant with Love".
You are a natural counselor and healer. But you must be careful not to interfere with
the freedom of others. You are recognized as an idealist, mainly regarding marriage,
friendships and humanity.
The 6 is the most balanced of all numbers, but also contains within itself the greatest
paradoxes. It is as if opposite tendencies were tenuously poised. Because of its gift for
harmonizing these opposites, you are uniquely qualified to handle and integrate
contradictions within yourself. It is for this reason that 6s so frequently find themselves in
the role of healers or counselors, creating a peace between opposing points of view, or
internal conflicts within the self.
While you can be very idealistic, there may also be a temptation to acquire beautiful
objects by improper means. You must also guard against other meddlesome behavior
and domestic tyranny, or always having to have your own way in a family dispute.
Conversely, you have it within yourself to understand another person's dilemma and
come up with a creative solution. Your natural ability to give comfort and warmth can
smooth over hurt feelings like a healing balm. You attract love and appreciation. And
rightly so, because you give the same in return.
You make an outstanding teacher (especially young children or special education),
healer, counselor social worker, psychologist, artist, designer, gardener, florist, and
farmer. You can be successful in business, especially those that involve dealing with
Your Heart's Desire is the inner you. It shows your underlying urge, your true
motivation. It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions. Consequently, it
dramatically influences the choices you make in life. The Heart's desire is seen as part
of the larger picture, called the core numbers, which includes the Life Path, Expression,
Day you were born, and Personality. But each points to a different aspect of you.
The Expression number reveals your talents and abilities, and your general direction in
life. The Life Path is the central lesson you came into the world to learn. The Day you
were born is very closely connected to your Life Path. It reveals specific talents you
possess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path. The Personality
reveals how people tend to see you. It also demonstrates what characteristics you are
projecting to the world. The Heart's Desire demonstrates the identity of the soul that
joined the earth -- you, the spiritual being.
Your Heart's Desire is 20/2
Della, you want peace and harmony in all aspects of your life. You want to devote your
life to someone or something. You fall in love easily. You are extremely sensitive and
emotional. You can be sentimental and you cry at sad stories. You need friends and
You appreciate the refinements of life. You desire comfort and security. You have
refined taste, and can be a connoisseur. You love music and possess a good deal of
Your sensitivity is actually a symptom of your highly developed intuition. But you must
learn to trust it.
Della, you are a gentle soul and shy away from confrontation as long as possible. You
experience a battle within when you do not believe you can handle a situation; this may
have a paralyzing effect on you.
You prefer to give in when you should assert yourself. You must learn to be more
decisive. Very often, you are afraid to use your own power in the face of someone else's
aggressiveness. You incorrectly perceive yourself to be in a weaker position; you may
ultimately give in merely to avoid a fight.
Conversely, you are extremely diplomatic and tactful. You like to accomplish things
through quiet persuasion. You dislike force.
You have to fight uncertainty and doubt. You need to develop confidence and a
willingness to stand up for what you believe to be right.
Della, you function best in a supportive role, guiding the more public person in quiet,
unobtrusive, yet essential ways.
Your Personality number is derived from the consonants of your full name at birth.
Your Personality is like a narrow entrance hall to the great room that is your true nature.
It is those aspects that you feel comfortable sharing with people at the outset of a
relationship. With time and trust, you invite others into the deeper aspects of your nature;
you reveal more of who you really are, in effect, your Heart's Desire, Expression, and so
Your Personality number often serves as a censoring device, both in terms of what
you send out, as well as what you allow to approach. It discriminates in the kinds of
people and information you let enter your heart and mind. For this reason, your
Personality is usually much more narrow and protective in its definition than the real you.
It can screen out some of what you do not want to deal with -- people or situations -- but
it also welcomes those things that immediately relate to your inner nature.
Your Personality number also indicates how others perceive you. No one can be
objective about himself or herself. Even our closest friends and relatives have trouble
describing how they see us.
Your Personality is 4
Della, you radiate reliability and consistency. People trust you and feel secure with
your judgment. You are seen as a cornerstone of a business and are relied upon to do
your work efficiently and expertly.
You have strength and respectability. You tend to dress in a utilitarian manner,
concerned mostly with convention, practicality, durability, and price. You present yourself
as someone who values correctness, control, and precision.
All of this stems from the fact that your most prized characteristic is your work. You
want to be judged on the basis of your performance, rather than your appearance.
You are frugal and have learned to respect a dollar. You are concerned about the
security of your future and those you love. However, this may appear to others as a bit too austere.
You tend to wear earth colors and conventional attire. You could benefit by putting a
little flair in your dress. Wear more uplifting colors. Loosen your dress with less severe
lines. If you wear a brown suit, include a bright tie or some jewelry.
You are a family person. You love the intimacy, consistency, and the security a family
provides. You are a good provider and protector. But family members may take your
efforts for granted.
Della, you are a true patriot. You love your country and are an integral part of your
community. Your consistency and adherence to your well-laid plans usually pays off in a
comfortable and secure future.
Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces
around age thirty to thirty-five. This underlying goal begins to emerge as you gain a better
understanding of yourself. With self-knowledge comes a greater awareness of who you
are, what your true goals in life are, and what direction you want to set for your life. This,
in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity: You no longer waste time and energy on things that
are not within your own special identity.
No matter what your age is at present, your life is being channeled in a specific
direction, toward a very specific goal. That goal can be seen as a reward or the
fulfillment of a promise that is implicit in your current efforts, often without your knowing it
consciously. While the characteristics of this number are usually visible during
childhood, we tend to lose sight of these aspects until later in life. But our lives are
always being affected by this influence, nonetheless.
Your Maturity number begins to have a more profound impact on your life after the age
of 35. The influence of the number increases steadily as you grow older.
Your Maturity is 11/2
As you mature, Della, you will discover that you possess a growing talent for
understanding and working with other people. Your ability to influence others through tact
and diplomacy will grow. These talents will further you along in your career or business.
You will become increasingly shrewd, and will learn the art of discrimination. Your
sensitivity to the needs and desires of others improves dramatically. You will be able to
evaluate their motivations with a growing clarity and uncanny accuracy.
You find you can get more done by persuasion and gentle guidance than by force.
Della, you may well have to learn to assume the role as the power behind the throne.
Your influence is less public, and you may not always receive the public recognition you
deserve. However, your satisfaction comes from seeing the fruition of your own ideas
come about, the result of teamwork and cooperative efforts.
If you already have many 2s in your chart, especially in the core numbers, you may
become overly sensitive, a characteristic you will have to keep in check. If you have few
2s in your chart, the influence of your Maturity Number will greatly increase your ability to
work harmoniously with other people.
Numerology is based on the understanding that we enter life with certain strengths and
weaknesses. Karmic lessons are areas that we are currently weak in and must be
faced and worked on in this life. There can be more than one Karmic Lesson. These
are indicated by the absence of certain numbers in your name.
The letters and numbers of your name point to talents and abilities that you possess.
These characteristics can be compared to a workshop in which certain tools are
available to you. Missing numbers, those that are not represented in the letters in your
name, imply tools that are unavailable, and must be learned and mastered during this
You may well recognize your Karmic Lessons as weaknesses you have learned to
overcome in the course of your life, however, the challenges implied in your Karmic
Lessons will continue to come up occasionally for the rest of your life.
You have a Karmic Lesson 6
Della, you have a major issue with commitment and responsibility to others.
You have a hard time committing to marriage and other important personal
relationships. You have to learn to show true emotion.
You may feel isolated and alone, but do not understand why. The reason is that very
often you form relationships yet remain heavily guarded, putting up a show of emotion
without truly communicating affection or care. This can make the bond between you and
others superficial. You must learn to establish sincere relationships.
Della, you will learn the importance of close friends and lasting relationships. You will
learn to give and, when necessary, sacrifice. This is the one true way to true friendship
and lasting love.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 6 among
your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality
You have a Karmic Lesson 7
Della, you need to deepen your knowledge and talents in a specific discipline. You
lack the will or determination to perfect yourself or a specific talent you possess. You
must learn to be your own critic, without self condemnation, in order to bring your abilities
to their full development.
You will learn not to take things at face value. A superficial understanding of important
matters will prevent you from experiencing the satisfaction of your true potential.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 7 among
your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality
You have a Karmic Lesson 8
Della, you can attract a considerable amount of money and even be a good business
person, but you experience major ups and downs in your financial affairs, due largely to
your lack of caution in handling your resources.
You are highly independent and do not want to be told how to do things. You have
great problems with authority figures. This stems from a kind of know-it-all attitude and
stubborn behavior that prevents you from knowing your limits.
You will have to work at knowing how to handle money. In all likelihood, you will attract
enough of it, but it has a tendency to slip through your fingers. This Karmic Lesson
forces you to learn your limitations, and the limitations of your resources.
Learn to be efficient.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 8 among
your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality
Your Hidden Passion reveals one or more special strengths and talents that you rely
upon and are available to you. The Hidden Passion represents your specific field of
expertise, or a concentrated talent.
Metaphorically, this talent can be seen as having a power all its own to shape your life.
Its existence gives you a strong desire to develop and to express that particular ability.
Having the talent demands that you express it, that you experience this part of you, and
that you live according to its nature. In this way, the Hidden Passion shapes your
personality, and guides your life.
Your Hidden Passion is 5
Della, you love travel, change, and new challenges. You are highly adaptable and
versatile. You have a talent for languages, and are generally good with words. Writing,
promotion, and public relations work suit you perfectly.
You are sensual and a bit impulsive. You love to satisfy your senses, which can get
you into trouble. Overindulgence in food, drink, sex, and drugs are common among
people with too many 5s -- six or more.
You are resourceful and original. You have a good sense of humor and a quick
Your desire for freedom is extremely strong and it will take effort and discipline to stick
with whatever it is you started. There is a tendency to give up a project or situation
Della, you may be interested in too many things, which can make it hard for you to
apply yourself to one area successfully.
You are very unconventional.
Commitment in relationships and your work is fundamental to your happiness. You
may have a tendency to wander from person to person, job to job, making depth of
relationship or deep expertise difficult.
People experience different internal responses to life's challenges. Some withdraw
from difficult situations to think them through; others withdraw from their emotions, to try
and keep themselves from feeling anything. Some explode with emotions, but allow the explosion to pass quickly. Others linger with their feelings, holding on to them well past
the time they should have let them go.
Very often, these are conditioned or emotional responses that emerge without thought
or analysis. Maturity and self-development help us to learn new and more effective
methods of handling our world and the problems we confront. Your Balance number
provides you with the guidance on how best to deal with difficult or threatening situations.
Your Balance is 7
You retreat into some safe haven within yourself, Della, and hope you will not have to
deal with the issue at hand. Yet, the clarity and analytical abilities of your mind are
sufficient to provide you with insight into the problem, and a clear path to its solution.
Della, you have to work at confronting yourself and the issues you face unemotionally
and calmly. You can be engulfed in the emotional aspects of the issue, which clouds
your mind and prevents you from using your clarity to find an answer. Get past the
emotion and you will find an answer. Page 12
