Numbers plays an important part in my life,every day i see numbers but i noticed that when i’m emotionally balanced there is a number i see more then others and is number 11,i feel like is the universe way to tell me i’m in the right life path,there is an episode happened 4 years ago that made me believe about it even more now,when just arrived in London i stayed in a hostel in Paddington,i can’t remember the right address number but i do remember the plate above it telling about the Hostel head office address and it was somewhere at the number 11,few weeks later i found a job in Fulham at 11 Jerdan place,the main bus running trough the area is the bus number 11 and when got my first payslip happened to be the employee number 11,currently i live at 11 farm lane,way too many to be just coincidences.
I do believe that if we learn to read the spiritual meaning of numbers we can learn to direct our lives to a happier experience,i done a lot of research about the topic and i found that our date of birth isn’t a coincidence it has a reason to be that,from our date of birth we can learn about our personality,about our strengths and weakness,there is a science studying it called Numerology,what is Numerology?
Numerology is any belief in the divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. It is also the study of the numerical value of the letters in words, names and ideas. It is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.
Despite the long history of numerological ideas, the word “numerology” is not recorded in English before c.1907.
The term numerologist can be used for those who place faith in numerical patterns and draw pseudo-scientific inferences from them, even if those people do not practice traditional numerology. For example, in his 1997 book Numerology: Or What Pythagoras Wrought, mathematician Underwood Dudley uses the term to discuss practitioners of the Elliott wave principle of stock market analysis.

Few months ago i asked to a friend expert in Astrology and Numbers to do a research related to my date of birth,what showed to me was quite interesting and even if i’m not agree with everything that came out i have to say that most of it tells about my personality pretty detailed.
This is what it says:
Your Life Path Number (sometimes called your Destiny Number) is derived from your birth date. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path Number is the single most important piece of information in numerology. Your Life Path Number is 8.
You are gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth. You have a great talent for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters. You understand the material world; you intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies not with the bookkeeping or petty management, but with the greater vision, it’s purpose and long-range goals. You are a visionary and a bit reckless. You possess the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest, but often they are incapable of seeing what you see. Therefore, those around you need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action and direct them along the lines of your vision. You attract financial success more than any other Life Path, but an effort is required.
Your challenge in life is to achieve a high degree of detachment, to understand that power and influence must be used for the benefit of mankind. Those born with the Number 8 Life Path who do not understand the real and relative value of money are bound to suffer the consequences of greed; they run the risk of losing it all! You must learn to bounce back from failures and defeats. You have the character and resilience of a true survivor. It is not uncommon for a person with your Life Path to experience major reverses, including bankruptcies, financial failure, but you also have the talent and the sheer guts to make more than one fortune, and build many successful enterprises. More than most people, your failures in marriage can be extremely expensive for you. Despite the difficulties that life presents, you will experience the satisfaction that comes from material wealth and the power that comes with it. Business, finance, real estate, law, science (particularly history, archaeology, and physics), publishing, and the management of large institutions are among the vocational fields that suit you best. You are naturally attracted to positions of influence and leadership – Politics, social work, and teaching are among the many other areas where your abilities can shine.
You are a good judge of character, which aids you well in attracting the right people to you. Most 8s like large families and sometimes tend to keep others dependent longer than necessary. Although jovial in nature you are not demonstrative in showing your love and affection. The desire for luxury and comfort is especially strong in you. Status is very important. You must be careful to avoid living above your means. Your Life Path treads that dangerous ground where power lies – and can corrupt. You may become too self-important, arrogant, and domineering, thinking that your way is the only way. This leads inevitably to isolation and conflict. The people you run the risk of hurting most are those you love, your family and friends.
Be careful of becoming stubborn, intolerant, overbearing, and impatient. These characteristics may be born early in the life of an 8 Life Path, who often learn these negative traits after suffering under a tyrannical parent or a family burdened by repressive religious or intellectual dogmas. Those with the 8 Life Path usually possess a strong physique, which is a symptom of their inherent strength and resiliency.
Your Expression Number (sometimes called your Destiny Number) is derived from the letters in your birth name. It reveals your goals, talents, abilities and challenges. Your Expression Number is 2.
You have a great talent for working with others; you possess tact and refinement. You have a highly developed intuition. This provides you with insight into personalities and situations. Therefore, you act with tact and subtle persuasion. You possess a kind of radar, avoiding the landmines within another’s personality, yet bringing out their goodwill. These abilities make you the perfect diplomat. Your abilities are better expressed while working with others than by working alone. In the same way, you perform better in a partnership than in a leadership role.
You seek balance and peace in all relationships and situations. The key to your personality is sensitivity, but there are two sides to the coin: You have the ability to perceive the thoughts and emotions of others, and can work gently with others for a mutually shared goal. This makes you a great asset in any group endeavour. However, your sensitivity makes you vulnerable. You can be thrown off balance by an unkind word, a conflict, or by hostile conditions at work. You are far more upset by these conditions than people without your sensitivity. While others appear to be enduring troubled times with a modicum of turmoil, you suffer the turbulence of life as if your very survival were at stake. In difficulties, you tend to persevere and steadily erode the resistance. You are like a gentle wind that shapes the rock.
You are friendly and open-minded. You are a great support person, pulling the best out of those around you. You are the power behind the throne. You are indispensable to the leadership of another, providing insight and advice that is essential. Yet, despite the invaluable service you provide, you often do not get the credit and recognition you deserve, which can be frustrating. Your natural modesty and the enjoyment you get from being an important asset is usually satisfaction enough for you. Close relationships are essential to your happiness. ButWhen single, you dream of finding your “soul mate.” When married, you are concerned with your spouse’s needs, emotions, and thoughts. You are an outstanding marriage partner, giving, thoughtful, and conscious of meeting the needs of your loved one. You provide great support for your spouse’s career. You are a passionate lover. Parenthood is not an easy role for you, probably because you lack the will to enforce discipline and need a tranquil, delicate, and harmonious environment.
You are blessed with a high degree of musical talent. You have a good sense of rhythm and harmony. You are a good counsellor with an inborn talent for psychology and finely tuned intuition.
Your Soul Urge Number (sometimes called your Heart’s Desire Number) is derived from the vowels in your birth name. It reveals your innermost dreams, motivations, intentions and vulnerabilities. Your Soul Urge Number is the second most important piece of information in numerology. Your Soul Urge Number is 11.
You have a wisdom beyond your years. Even as a child, your understanding of life was considerable, though it likely went unrecognized by others. You are a born peacemaker. You are driven by a desire to settle conflicts and create harmony. You are a healer and a visionary. You long to make the world a better place, and cannot rest until you have dedicated your life to some worthwhile cause.
Your realm is ideas and philosophy. You are attracted to the world of energy more than to the mechanical or material planes. Philosophy, religion, and less traditional forms of healing are among your specialities. You are obsessed with the quest for enlightenment. You are extremely sensitive and possess a high degree of intuition. Subtle messages and feelings of others do not escape your attention. You are powerfully aware of the thoughts and feelings of others. Unless you are well grounded, this can throw you about emotionally. Your awareness can be both a gift as well as a problem because you so deeply desire to please others and keep harmony in your environment. Many 11s were born into extremely hostile or turbulent families. This often resulted in psychological pain, lack of confidence, and shyness during childhood. Somehow, the child with an 11 heart’s desire recognized the sources of his family’s problem. This created an internal conflict for the child, who naturally loved the troubled parent, but could not cope with that parent’s behaviour. Therefore, many 11s are scarred early in life. They understand the sufferings of others and seek to be of service in some way. This is, in fact, the easiest way for you to heal yourself and find your greatest satisfaction.
You understand the importance of close, loving relationships. Therefore, you are selective in choosing your friends and spouse. You are a romantic, idealistic, but somewhat impractical person. Unless you have other balancing characteristics (as indicated by 1s, 4s, and 8s in your chart), it is wise to team up with a more practical and realistic partner. You have a magnetic and charismatic personality. You like pondering abstract matters. Your intelligence is electric. Ideas, solutions to problems, and inventions seem to come to you as if out of the blue. You are highly charged and intense. This can cause nervous tension. You need to care for your nervous system with ample amounts of rest, a peaceful environment, and proper diet – avoiding extreme foods and drugs. You are often more concerned with universal justice than with the individual.
Your Quiet Self Number (sometimes called your Personality Number) is derived from the consonants in your birth name. It reveals your first impression and inner nature, and what you share and protect. Your Quiet Self Number is 9.
You have an impressive and aristocratic bearing. No matter how tall you are, you appear noble and upright. You are very much in control of the image you send out to others.
Many actors, dancers, and other performers have a 9 Personality Number. You are elegant, graceful, and charismatic. Many admire you. You have the kind of stature that pulls people to you or repels them intensely. Some are jealous of you and may seek to belittle you. You may encourage this to some extent by the amount of arrogance you radiate. This is a caution for all 9 Personalities – they are sometimes aloof and hold themselves above the world. Your challenge is to come down to earth with your fellow man. Conversely, you have a great compassion for humanity and want to dedicate yourself to improving a lot of others. You are better when dealing with the trials of the many than the trouble of a single person. You are more capable of working on the grand scale, addressing the needs of society, than on a one-to-one basis.
You are kind and sympathetic, helpful and compassionate. Behind the controlled and calm facade, you are sensitive, vulnerable and emotional. You have excellent taste. There is a good deal of artistic talent in you that shows in your home environment and your clothing. You tend to see yourself as a guardian of society, a benevolent leader, guiding and directing your community toward a better world.
Your Pinnacle Number and Pinnacle Cycle are derived from your birth date. Your life is divided into four Pinnacle Cycles. Your Pinnacle Number is 6 in your Third Pinnacle Cycle (sometimes called your 6 Pinnacle).
Under this Pinnacle you will be very involved with family, friends, and your community. You will face an increase in responsibilities and duties, but you have a greatly enhanced sense of balance and perspective that allows you to handle emotional issues well.
Your family demands much of your attention. Matters involving spouse and children require much security, love, and sacrifice. You are the centrepiece of your family, the one people come to for solace and understanding. You may feel an increased burden, as you carry the cares of many. You will experience a deep sense of being needed.
This Pinnacle is full of love, closeness, and warmth, but you must rise to the challenges that close relationships bring. You must settle and bring harmony to personal conflicts between others. You are often the only one with perspective in a conflict. It is as if you are the keeper of justice, bringing understanding and compromise to situations that are polarized.
Under the influences of this Pinnacle – especially at its outset – people are often married or start families. Children are born, in-laws come into your life. You are the nucleus of a little world.
You must maintain your dignity. This is a period that makes it easier to sacrifice, but you can overdo it, becoming a doormat for others to step on simply to maintain a degree of peace. Know your limits and maintain healthy relationships.
This is a fine period for growth in business and financial matters. You attract people with resources who can help to further your personal goals. Moreover, you are balanced in your approach to business affairs. This can bring many rewards.
Your heightened sense of harmony and your genuine compassion makes you an excellent counsellor and healer, especially if you already have native talent in any of these areas.
Personal health matters can also surface, causing you to reflect on a diet, exercise, and other health habits.
Your desire to help others is also increased. But this can lead you to poke yourself into situations where you do not belong or delve too deeply into other people’s personal affairs. Be careful not to meddle or interfere.
The 6 Pinnacle is a time of progress and growth as a full human being. You are capable of developing yourself in many different directions – as a loving mate and parent; a sound businessperson; and as a pillar of your community. The time requires the balance you possess since you can easily stretch yourself in too many directions and ultimately feel burned out by the demands in your milieu.
Your Birth Day Number is derived from your birth date. It reveals the talents you possess. Your Birth Day Number is 16.
Your over-powering orientation is toward the philosophical and spiritual aspects of life. You are driven to understand the unseen world. On some level, you feel like a foreigner on planet Earth. Your realm is the world of spirit. Your challenge is to find a way to ground that desire and understanding in practical terms so that it can be effectively shared with others.
You have a fine analytical mind that is capable of penetrating beneath the surface of the subject at hand. You also have the capacity for excellent concentration. You must use that mind to your greatest advantage. Investigate the subjects you love and gain the depth of knowledge in these fields. Specialize. Become an expert in a given area. This will give you a means of earning a living and personal power to share your wisdom. The great pitfall you face is the choice of becoming aloof, mental, and critical. This will result in alienation and even bitterness. You can also easily lift off the ground, becoming impractical and dreamy. If you indulge too much in the flight of fancy, you may drift from reality and give up the possibility of earning an adequate living.
You have excellent intuition and may even possess the psychic ability. Trust your intuition and use it as a guide in life. But at all times, be practical in your application of your insights. Find concrete means of expressing yourself. Pick a field that suits you – science, metaphysics, philosophy, psychology, teaching, for example – and deepen yourself in its understanding. But beware of becoming overly dogmatic and shut off from the truths of others.
You prefer to work alone, rather than in a group. You can easily lose interest in your projects, however, and must work hard to finish what you start. You have to have faith and let opportunities come your way, you may miss out if you reach and seek.
You are very sensitive and feel deeply, but you don’t share your feelings easily, nor do you communicate them well. The realm of the heart troubles you for its shifting, nebulous qualities. You must work hard to understand this area of life. You like to spend time alone to contemplate and meditate, but have to be careful not to withdraw too much. Long-term relationships are not easily established nor maintained.
Your Birth Stone is derived from your birth date. Your Birth Stone is Amethyst (purple).
The Amethyst is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication. In fact, amethyst comes from amethystos, a Greek word meaning “sober.”
Your Sun Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your inner self. Your Sun Sign is Aquarius the Water Bearer (air, fixed, Uranus).
You get bored with the status quo and are generally open to new things and ideas. An individualist and a free spirit, your friends are quite important to you as long as they do not try to tie you down by making too many emotional demands on you. Your thoughts are offbeat and you’re a bit eccentric, but not always very changeable. As a matter of fact, you can be quite stubborn at times. Very fair-minded when dealing with large groups or broad issues, you are not always emotionally sensitive to the needs of individuals. Extremely objective, with good powers of observation, you would be qualified to study technical and complicated subjects, like science, computers or maybe even astrology.
Your Moon Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your emotional self. Your Moon Sign is Libra.
Affectionate, warm and friendly, life must be a “beautiful” experience for you. Unpleasantness should be avoided at all costs. You tend to overlook other people’s faults and you would rather give in than fight. You are uncomfortable with strangers, but at ease and sociable with friends and associates. Indeed, you would rather socialize than work – you can use your prodigious charm to avoid unpleasant tasks. You need the support and assistance of another in order to get you started on any new project – you are not a self-starter. Be careful of a tendency to be overly self-indulgent (i.e., lazy). Your refined aesthetic sensibilities attract you to music, dance, art and any other cultured activity.
Your Mercury Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals the way you think. Your Mercury Sign is Pisces.
Your ideas and thought processes do not come to you in an orderly, logical fashion. Instead, you think with your feelings or with images produced by your rich and fertile imagination. A very subjective person, your dreams and fantasies are very important to you. You trust your intuitions and tend to reject ideas that are based solely on logic. Very impressionable, you are sensitive to the moods and emotional states of those with whom you come into contact.
Your Venus Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals the way you feel. Your Venus Sign is Capricorn.
You tend to keep your feelings under control – emotions are only released in serious or important situations. You are distrustful of others whose behaviour could be judged excessive or immoderate. As such, you prefer to relate only to those who are older than you or to those whose position is such that respect and duty are more important for both of you than passion or emotional response. Be careful, however, of relationships that are merely based on practicality or utility or you will ultimately be lonely.
Your Mars Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your energy. Your Mars Sign is Aquarius.
Your ideas and opinions are usually inventive and original, but sometimes they are merely eccentric and offbeat. You are altruistic – you will work hard for the attainment of group goals, as long as they meet your high standards. You tend to resent traditional authority figures because you think that your ideas are better thought out and more valuable than theirs. Very idealistic, you are a rebel WITH a cause!
Your Jupiter Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your growth. Your Jupiter Sign is Leo.
You must be proud of all that you do in order to grow and develop. You enjoy being totally honest and aboveboard and you revel in the admiration and respect you receive from others due to your high- minded, upright way of life. Make sure, though, that your natural tendency to boast and show off is based on your actual accomplishments. Don’t fall prey to self-exaggeration or arrogance. You truly do like outrageous spectacles and grand jolly times and will go out of your way to make them a reality.
Your Saturn Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your focus. Your Saturn Sign is Virgo.
Your life must be orderly and practical and full of known and familiar routines in order for you to feel comfortable with yourself. Be careful, however, not to let “order” become the be-all and end-all of your life, or you may become cold, crass and unfeeling. Doing useful, practical things boosts your self- esteem. Abstract concepts and reasoning seem frivolous and a waste of time to you. You are very critical of yourself (and others), indeed at times quite self-deprecating. Try to relax a bit and allow yourself the freedom to fail once in a while. However, you probably won’t fail very often because you are such a perfectionist.
Your Uranus Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your ingenuity. Your Uranus Sign is Scorpio.
You, and your peer group demand to confront life at its deepest and most meaningful levels. Very compulsive and obsessive in your approach to everything, you will avoid anything that is casual or superficial, especially when it comes to relationships. You will seek out and explore new methods of healing as well as different ways to deal with deep-seated emotional problems.
Your Neptune Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your compassion. Your Neptune Sign is Sagittarius.
You and your entire generation are heavily involved in investigating and idealizing foreign and exotic intellectual systems and religious philosophies. The most extreme ideas will be pursued with gusto. You will be at the forefront of humanitarian attempts to improve a lot of those who are in need of assistance. You will be comfortable with the concept of the “global village.”
Your Pluto Sign is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your renewal. Your Pluto Sign is Libra.
For your entire generation, this is a time of radical changes in society’s attitude toward marriage and interpersonal relationships. There is a general fear and awe at the power inherent in making emotional or contractual commitments – they will not be entered into lightly.
Your Rising Sign or Ascendant is derived from your birth date, time and place. It reveals your outer self. Your Rising Sign is Leo.
You love to be the centre of attention and you want to appear strong, confident and dominant. You are very proud of yourself, sometimes quite vain even. When all around you are bedraggled and falling apart, you look like a million bucks! Very dignified and honourable, you enjoy the power and privilege, but not the responsibilities, that come with leadership. You are very idealistic but can also be quite stubborn. Others impress you only if they have integrity (but wealth, power and influence can also turn your head). You prefer rich, elegant surroundings and possessions, and will try to acquire them as your budget allows. Physically, you are very impressive – – at your best, you have a regal, charismatic demeanour and bearing. Try not to be such a showoff!
Your Chinese Sign is derived from your birth date in the Chinese calendar. It reveals your personality. Your Chinese Sign is the Ram (yin, earth).
People born in the Year of Ram are elegant and highly accomplished in the arts. They seem to be, at first glance, better off than those born in the zodiac’s other years. But ram year people are often shy, pessimistic, and puzzled about life. They are usually deeply religious, yet timid by nature. Sometimes clumsy in speech, they are always passionate about what they do and what they believe in. Ram people never have to worry about having the best in life for their abilities make money for them, and they are able to enjoy the creature comforts that they like. Ram people are wise, gentle, and compassionate. They are compatible with Rabbits, Pigs, and Horses.
