The highest aspirations and the noblest ideals are your cosmic heritage. Yours is a life of interest in the search for the mysteries behind the veil, and the meaning of psychic and occult experiences. Service is the keynote of your career, for you fully understand that what one does for others, generally and particularly, is the building of the greatest treasure for one’s self. All experience is encompassed in the time you have to spend upon this planet, for your Life Cycle is one of the all-inclusive.

You know that love is a greater experience than can be limited to one person or one family or one group. Generosity and perfection are your everlasting goals, and you attempt to reach them through the practice of the divine and occult arts. You understand the great silences, the periods of meditation needed for development, and the need to go into “thy closet and pray.”

An extreme sensitivity makes you respond to people, atmosphere, environment, color, voices, and music. Extended to other planes, this trait makes you perceptive and receptive to psychic phenomena. You tend to vacillate between the heights and depths of ecstasy and sadness in your barometer-like reaction to outward circumstances. With the increase in your knowledge of philosophy and occultism, this tendency should vanish into thin air.

Liberty and freedom are your heralds, and you desire to travel upon the path of life unshackled by the impediments of wealth and possessions, knowing that he travels fastest who travels light. In some capacity, you are in touch with the public, or in the public eye, as lecturer, or entertainer, or orator. Your life will be full, and its years should be plenty.

Eight – The Gleaner

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Eight, you are The Gleaner.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

The harvest of study, organizational ability, and the qualities of an executive are yours. You have the traits of efficiency and capability at your command, and with them you can carve out a life of prosperity, happiness, and good works. You understand human nature, sympathize with its weaknesses, and are willing to make a career of lending your efforts to the improvement of the lot of mankind.

The cloak of authority is yours, and you seek to use it in an executive capacity in whatever field of endeavor you enter. The larger the group with which you affiliate yourself, the greater will be your accomplishments and rewards. Industry, corporate affairs, and philanthropic organizations can well use your directorial and managerial abilities.

Because you lead what Teddy Roosevelt called “the strenuous life,” you drive yourself hard, and may tend to be dictatorial with others. It is well for you to learn the lesson that efficient management of one’s energy is as necessary as the efficient expenditure of one’s cash – in other words, get the most out of your investment.

Courage distinguishes you, and your ideal is to see that you and everyone else enjoys freedom of action. You understand the laws of discipline and discrimination, and therefore should “brake” the great destructive force which lies like a sleeping tiger in the inner recess of your personality.

Much of your life is concentrated on the material plane and therefore your highest expression can be achieved by putting your strongest efforts into dealing with the practical advancement of mankind

Seven – The Mystic

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Seven, you are The Mystic.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You are contemplative and analytical by nature. Of a very thoughtful turn of mind, you seek to discover the reason behind everything not being satisfied to accept anything at its surface value.

Your meditations and analyses should lead to the discovery of truths both ancient and new, especially along mystic and occult lines of thought.

Your part in the cosmic drama is that of the healer. To you, the troubled in mind and body turn for comfort, consolation, and healing, for your touch – both physical and spiritual – is like the curative “laying upon of hands” of the Holy Book.

A reserved manner sets you apart from other people, and it takes a type who understands the subtler things of life to be completely comprehend your quiet moods. You are cloaked in natural dignity, and, regardless of your station or vocation in life, you are respected wherever you appear. Your manner is intellectual, and your main interests are along cultural and philosophical lines. Musical composition and invention are fields wherein your originality should be prosperously creative.

The lovely things of life are as necessary to you as the air by which you life. Without the fine creations of the world’s artists for you to appreciate, you would feel that life was entirely too humdrum an existence to bother living. As a connoisseur of each stitch in the tapestry of artistic creation, you make each moment vibrant with appreciation.

There are many, and difficult, lessons for you to learn, for it seems to you at times that life is just one delay and disappointment after the other. It is your philosophical outlook, and your sympathy and mysticism that makes you understand that the pace of living is in itself one of the prime and most important of all lessons.

Four – The Mason

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Four, you are The Mason.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

The number of your Life Cycle is symbolized by the square. This stands for justice and equality, and it represents you in the center, bounded on each side, and thus restricted so that you can not expand.

Consequently, the only direction in which you can grow is – up!

The square represents the practical aspects of life, upon which all form is built. For this reason, you may look upon this Life Cycle as the building of foundations for better things to come.

You may look to this life as one of work. You are prepared for this by having been endowed with patience, endeavor, and the desire to render practical service. Method ond logic are the mental tools which you, as the mason, use. You are imbued with faithfulness and loyalty, although you are not particularly demonstrative about your emotions.

Conservatism may restrict you ideologically. Details and duties seem to overshadow the end-all aim of some of your endeavors. In some things it is wiser to go with the tide rather than try to direct its course. By avoiding the tendency to force your ideas on others, you can avoid the friction that retards your progress.

Your finest expression comes from your sense of form and design. You can visualize, in its completed form, the concept offered you by the artist and the architect. Then, in your own practical way, you can execute this design or blueprint.

It could never be said of you that you shirk your duties or avoid your responsibilities. Where dependability is wanted, you fill the bill – and you do a noble and creative job.

Three – The Artist

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Three, you are The Artist.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You are the pinnacle of self-expression. Mentality plays a very large part in your life, for you see clearly and wholly. No delusions waste your time, even though you are pleasure-loving. You realize that all life is not mere fun.

Versatility is one of your outstanding traits. You have so many talents that you have difficulty in choosing a single one to express all that is within you, waiting to come out. You are a “quick study,” being able to acquire knowledge without making a strenuous effort. Your scholarship is not profound, however, for you do not devote all your time to study as the real scholar does.

You are sociable and entertaining. These qualities make it simple for you to make friends quickly. Most people like you; the exceptions are those who do not understand you. The reason is that they can not see the depth of your character, and think that your surface is the real you. Your enthusiasms are contagious, but your taste palls quickly, and then you seek the new.

You are inclined to accept things as they are, and not to worry too much. You like getting your own way and indulging your own desires. Your quick wit makes you a cutting critic of other people and their opinions. In fact your gift of words might well make you an excellent critic or writer, as well as teacher, lecturer, or entertainer.

Love is a necessity to you. Unless you are sharing a real emotional experience with someone who takes you seriously, you are not really happy.

Six – The Teacher

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Six, you are The Teacher.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You have noble ideals and high aspirations for their fulfillment. Love is the ruler of your universe, and it is your role in life to teach this philosophy – among other things – to the rest of the world. Your aim is to help others, mainly by establishing and maintaining justice and the rights of humanity.

Beauty and harmony are as necessary to you as the very breath of life. You must have these two in your environment, and particularly in your home. Domestic felicity is your immediate goal; and after you have established it there, you wish to expand the same harmonious atmosphere to all the rest of your surroundings, and the universe. The crass, the tawdry, and the vulgar are upsetting to the balance and rhythm that are such a deep part of your inmost being.

You have a deep appreciation of the arts and music. You express this love for the finer things of life either by being creative in these fields, or by being the keenest of connoisseurs.

The unselfishness which distinguishes you makes you the counselor of the young, and confidant of the old, and the teacher of the world. Rarely critical, you prefer to instill your noble concepts through understanding and sympathy.

A certain amount of unwanted responsibility accompanies the life path of those born under the vibration of your Life Cycle. You have duties which are real burdens, but you soon learn that even these heavy tasks have their function in life – be it only to further instill in you the unselfishness and generosity that you need for your work in life.

By fulfilling your function in life, you can find the sheer happiness that is known only to great humanitarians.

Five – The Scribe

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Five, you are The Scribe.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You are mercurial by nature, full of wit, dash, enthusiasm, and energy. Life to you is a dashing and bold adventure, which you can well take in your stride because all of its ceaseless change is in perfect harmony with your own love of variety. You thoroughly enjoy the activities of the world, and are the center of interest and attraction in the crowd.

Freedom is your birth-right, and you do not allow anything to interfere with your right to enjoy it. Your pursuit of happiness is an endless trail of good humor, wit, and pleasure. Not that you do not have your serious moments, for you are highly intellectual, and are a master in the use of words. As a matter of fact, the use of words is your natural metier.

You could excel in any profession or vocation where a good vocabulary and oratory or vocal powers are needed. The ministry, teaching, and lecturing are excellent fields for your endeavor. In the world of entertainment or writing, you could shine as a brilliant star.

Your great versatility with language could be a cause of occasional difficulty or embarrassment, for it tempts you to talk about topics with which you are not thoroughly familiar, or to launch a tirade of wit against those less able with the rapier of sarcasm or humor than you are.

A certain inconsistency is also the expression of your mercurial temper. There is a way to take advantage of this quality, and that is to follow the precept of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said that every intellectual person is inconsistent. He meant that the wise man changes with the times, and progresses and advances as all nature and civilization do. This is the path you may easily follow, and it leads to happiness, full expression of the personality, and your success.

Two – The Helpmate

If you have a Life Cycle Number of Two, you are The Helpmate.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You can acquire what you want without fanfare, for tact and diplomacy have been endowed upon you as two distinguishing characteristics.

The keynote of your life is cooperation; you succeed more mightily by carrying out the plans of others, by executing the blueprint or pattern that is designed rather than by attempting to be completely original in your own sphere.

Disharmony and disagreeable situations take toll upon your nervous system, and for this reason, you do all within your power to establish and maintain harmony. You have natural grace and great consideration for others – two traits which win you a host of friends.

While you lack the aggressive spirit of those born with other numbers of destiny, this does not mean that you need ever lack the good things in life. Two is the number of “gathering in.” Your own cooperative spirit inflates your powers of association, and brings to you many things that others go forth to seek. Rhythm is the one requirement for your happiness.

At your best, you display the wonderful traits of agree-ability, charm, and courtesy. The symbol of your number of destiny is the soul being breathed into the body. In other words, your function is to fill the empty forms with life. There is a kind of magic connected with all you do, for you seem to take the concept and kindle true life into it. Whereas others seek the company and assistance of their fellows, you have an unusual independence of spirit that makes you the perfect helpmate, yet completely self sufficient if you need to be so.

The hammer can not get along without the forge, and you are the hard metal on which the shape eternal is formed.

One – The Pioneer

If you have a Life Cycle Number of One, you are The Pioneer.

  • To calculate your Life Cycle Number go here.

You are the leader, the captain, and the planner. Yours is a very positive nature, for you have a truly strong individuality. Your place in the path of life is in the driver’s seat of the chariot of experience. Servitude is unknown to you, and subservience is completely alien to your nature.

You are original and creative and possess the aggressive qualities necessary to put your productive ideas into practical, material form. Ambition is a prime factor in your life, and it motivates you to strive arduously for the success you desire. You are endowed with executive ability, and can direct affairs, whether they be those of a large organization or the household.

Determination, strength, and will are the tools of your ambition, and you use them with the authority of one who has skill and training.

Occasionally you demonstrate the negative aspects of these qualities. At such times you are domineering and hasty. It is wiser for you to use diplomacy and get your way than to try to impose it on others by sheer force of will.

You are inclined to be critical and demanding, but somewhat unable to take criticisms others offer to you, for deep within your nature is a sensitivity you try to conceal.

Follow the generous impulses of your heart, and you will retain your leadership and your friendships.

Your Life Cycle Number

Added together, the digits in your date of birth comprise your number of destiny. Your birthday is not an accident, but part of the Great Plan of the Creator. Behind the numbers in your date of birth is an occult significance which has a bearing upon your entire life.

This number of destiny is your Life Cycle Number, which you can quickly compute by following the directions given immediately below.

Computing your Life Cycle Number:

To compute your Life Cycle Number, is actually quite simple. All you do is add together the number value of the month, day, and year of your birth, and then reduce the total down to a single digit.

The number value for each month is as follows:

  1. January
  2. February
  3. March
  4. April
  5. May
  6. June
  7. July
  8. August
  9. September
  10. October
  11. November
  12. December

Here’s an example:

For someone born on January 19, 1959, the equation will look like this:

  • January = 1
  • Date = 19
  • Year = 1959

Here is what the calculation would look like:

  • 1 + 19 + 1959 = 1979

Take that total (in this case, it’s 1979), and reduce it to a single digit by by adding each of the individual numbers together. And if the total adds up to more than a single digit, (in this case, it’s 26), reduce it yet again:

  • 1 + 9 + 7 + 9 = 26
  • 2 + 6 = 8

And so the number of this person’s Life Cycle or Number of Destiny, is 8.

Here’s a calculator:
