Numerology for Words

Title: – Happy Christmas

In terms of Numerology, the motivation here is to re-evaluate how best to help others, when we may be holding on too tightly to a structure that may have gone (18/ 9). The essence of what is happening is about us embracing change by thinking in new ways (50/ 5) and this is also the challenge in 2021 (2+2+1 = 5). Overall it is about breaking out of the box to think in new ways and to find freedom despite the limitations (14/ 5). We may feel very unsettled wanting the security of the existing structure (4) as well as the freedom to do things in new ways (5).

While we may have to focus on practical communication (68/ 14/ 5), our challenge is to think in new ways … This has the power to change everything !!!

Title: – ‘Peace on Earth’ in terms of Numerology


Starts with great spirituality (7) bringing about great change (5) and new beginnings (1) with regards to creativity (3) and new thinking (5).

Great spirituality (7) born of change (50/ 5), inspiring us to work together, sharing new ideas, innovation and creativity (12/ 3).

Let this great spirituality allow new structures (4) and creativity (3) to evolve naturally (34/ 7) with minimal self interest and ego.

Creativity (3) born of emotion (20/ 2) can mean we are very up and down (23/ 5) …

But let’s stay grounded, focussed and working together …

Title: – The Words ‘Water’ and ‘Mind’ in terms of Numerology

The words ‘Water’ and ‘Mind’ have similar vibrations in terms of Numerology and can both be seen as master builders (22) who can bring about the transformation of existing structures (13/ 4).

The 22nd letter of the alphabet is the ‘V’, and this shape can illustrate expansive energies (at the top) being totally focused and grounded whilst trying to get every detail right (2, born of 20). This can be seen in how the master builder ultimately reflects and builds new structures, with great sensitivity and love/wisdom (22/ 4).

The 4th letter of the alphabet is the ‘D’ and this shape can illustrate the 1 of will, expanding into it’s potential (1Ɔ) while staying grounded and connected to the earth and itself, trying to build up to the heavens.

The first letter of the word ‘Mind’ – ‘M’ is the 13th letter of the alphabet.
13/ 4 represents great creativity (3) born of the fiery will of the individual (10), pushing through to transform an existing structure (4). 

The shape of the letter ‘M’ can look like the ‘V’ being held and supported on either side by the fiery will of the 1 energy (1V1). This double will of the 1 energy can be interpreted as holding up the structure, trying to keep it stable and strong, so creativity can break through.

This can be reminiscent of the mind sets we develop when interpreting the world and learning strategies to survive. As much as possible, we want structure and certainty in amongst constant change. Once learnt these mind sets can be very hard to let go of, after learning to fear we can get stuck.

The ‘Essence’ and ‘Overall Self Expression’ with the word ‘Mind’ is all about using creativity (3) and will (1) to build a solid structure (4), the motivation (9) here is to connect with the bigger picture so as to help humanity. To do this we have to let go and trust, ideally accumulating wisdom and compassion along the way. 

The first letter of word ‘Water’ – ‘W’ is the 23rd letter of the alphabet.
23/ 5 is again about creativity (3), however this time it is born of emotion and sensitivity (20), with the potential to bring about change and new thinking (5). 

The ‘Essence’ (16/ 7) and ‘Motivation’ (6) from the word ‘Water’ are about holding the reflection, harmonising one’s life with the greater life and taking responsibility for maintaining harmony and balance (just like water will always find its level).

The shape of the letter ‘W’ looks like two ‘Vs’ side by side (VV), this is passive, receptive and reflective. This shape is very up and down, illustrating our tendency to have the ideas but to doubt ourselves, potentially flying high but then crashing down.

This can be reminiscent of water taking the shape of whatever holds it. Water when it is still and clear can appear passive, but it reflects what surrounds it, holding the memory of all it has witnessed. On the other hand, water whipped up in a storm can become great waves that bring devastation. Similarly, water conducting electricity can be deadly if touched.

Water whether running smoothly or in great waves, is capable of moving mountains. It is the energy and motion behind and within it that gives it the power to bring about change.

We experience this every day as we live in watery realms, most of our planet is covered in water and 60% of our bodies are water.  Biological life came out of the water.

If we look at the word ‘Life’ in terms of Numerology: –

  9  5    Soul Urge / Motivation =   14/   5
3  6      Personality / Essence =       9/   9
            Overall Self Expression =  23/ 14/ 5

This illustrates how our lives are born of emotion (20/ 2) and our experience of life can be in a constant state of flux, we can be riding high and then come crashing down. We may have the ideas (3) but then doubt ourselves. We may want the security and stability of our existing structure (or comfort zone) (4) but also need the freedom (5) to explore new ideas.

Ideally we will learn greater humility through witnessing others share our experiences, allowing us to realise how connected we all are in the sea of life. To help others we may have to let go of existing mind sets and structures, to think in new ways, to learn from all that has gone before and to let go and trust (9). The prominent 3 in the ‘Overall Self Expression’ as well as the 3 derived from the first letter, gives us great potential for creativity and new thinking.

As with water, it is the energy and motion (or motivation) behind us and within us, that gives us the power to bring about change.

Necessity is the mother of invention and this is especially true of this year 2020, which has given us so much time to reflect.

Title: – Lockdown

The word ‘Lockdown’ currently has great significance in our lives, particularly now that it applies to all of us rather than just a few.

The first letter ‘L’ is a 3 and the first vowel ‘O’ is a 6, these numbers dominate this word.
The 3 represents the trinity and great creativity.
The 6 represents harmony and taking responsibility.

The Soul Urge (S/U) or motivation that comes from this word (12/ 3) can be viewed as the trinity made real or viable (3 x 4 = 12), structures that have been developed so creativity can flourish. This can also be seen in how we have 12 hours in the day, 12 months in the year and 12 signs of the zodiac. This number can also represent great harmony and poise, (6 x 2 = 12) as masculine (1) and feminine (2) energies work together, taking responsibility for creating new solutions (3).

The 12th card in Tarot is ‘The Hanged Man’ (Le Pendu), this represents how many of us are feeling at the moment, upside down with all the money falling out of our pockets while we are holding on by a thread.  On the other hand, the person represented in the card is poised and at peace, away from the drama. If we look closely we can see the 7 represented with his legs in the shape of a 4 and his arms making the shape of a triangle, representing the 3. The trees either side can represent the 11/ 2, which acts as a channel and a direct link to spirit. The golden rope symbolises his connection with spirit and his Soul. The key aspect to the 11 is the space to connect with spirit, away from the usual dramas and distractions; a person in a cocoon, allowing himself to go with the flow.

The Personality No. (P) that comes from this word is 22/ 4 (2 x 11). The true spirit of this year (2020) comes from these 2s, a time of gestation and internalisation. With the 2 we have separation for the first time. 22/ 4 also represents the Master Builder, building with the love wisdom that can be found in such periods, represented by the 2.  There is potential here for big projects to come from the creativity that results from being upside down and being forced to do things in new ways, think in new ways and look at things in new ways.  As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.

The Overall Self Expression (OSE) or the sum of the numbers that come from this word (34/ 7), represent a new structure (4) born of great creativity (3), a new structure for the spirit (7).

We have a unique opportunity here to think in new ways and to create new structures that allow creativity to flourish. As this process has to happen, embracing the opportunity that has presented itself and allowing this process, without putting energy into resistance, will allow us more energy and space for new thinking and creativity, so the new structures can emerge.

Title: – Love

Love the most powerful force on this planet …
For anything to truly work there has to be love …

The word starts with a 3, which represents the trinity, creativity, communication and joy.
The first vowel ‘O’ is a 6 which emphasises harmony and responsibility.

The Soul Urge or motivation (11/ 2), is to be a channel with a direct link to spirit.
11/ 2 visionary, idealistic, inspirational, with great breadth of vision and the potential for inspired communication.

This 11/ 2 is made up of the 6 and 5 and 65/ 11/ 2 is known as the prolific creator, the higher mind (5) born of devotion and idealism (60/ 6).

The Personality, what we see is the 7, this is known as ‘The Magician’ as it has the potential to make the spiritual real in a physical way. The 7 combines the 3, (the blue print, the idea, the gift to be discovered) with the 4 which focuses on what is viable and practical, potentially building something solid.

34/ 7 also represents new structures (4) born of great creativity and light, shining for others (30/ 3).

The Overall Self Expression (OSE) 18/ 9 is about a massive re-evaluation (8) as you learn to let go of an existing mind set … to let go and trust …

The 18th letter ‘R’ can represent words such as return, revise, revisit… all about going back over all that has gone before, to extract the wisdom and ultimately to let go of existing mind sets …

May the force be with you …

For anything to truly work there has to be love …

On one level we have no choice but to allow this to happen, feeling optimistic may make the process less painful and may allow us to go with the flow and see where this takes us …

So, hands off and let it happen… Why not let spirit take the lead…

Title ‘Heech in a Cage’ by Iranian artist Parviz Tanavoli
(currently housed in The British Museum)

‘Heech in a Cage’ by Iranian artist Parviz Tanavoli (currently housed in The British Museum).
This work brings to life the Persian word Heech which means ‘nothing’. The concept of ‘nothingness’ plays an important role in Sufism (the mystic branch of Islam).
“It is not life that amounted to nothing, but rather nothing which brimmed with life itself”.
In Numerology the zero or no-thing also plays an important role as it represents the potential that everything comes from and ultimately returns to.
“That which will be whether there is universe or not, whether there be Gods or none “

Title: – ‘Transformation Tuesday’

You may feel pushed into blind experience here to find your truth.
The 9s in this position can represent a massive letting go.
The 8s represent re-evaluation and movement, as everything potentially comes up to be transformed.
The 7 in this position can connect you to the much bigger spiritual picture and ultimately your truth …

The potential’s always there … Have a great Tuesday!!!

Title: – Santa Claus

Great potential for harmony laughter, joy and co-operative ventures here. The motivation is to take responsibility for harmony and love to prevail (6), as we take the journey from the head (5) to the heart (6).  Initially wiĺl (1) may be driving emotion (2) and there is the potential for the ‘little princess’ to emerge, wanting all the sparkle and to be the centre of attention (21/ 3). But by thinking in new ways (15/ 6) there is the potential for the love wisdom (2) to come in to influence the will (1) and for truly co-operative ventures and joy to result (12/ 3).

Title: – Numerology for the words Time & Space

Our ‘Date of Birth’ can be defined as a moment when time and space truly connect – a cross in time and space that becomes our starting point.

Time is a manmade measure, both linear and flat. It is a way of ordering events in the past, present and future.

Space can be defined as a continuous expanse, the size and magnitude of which is still beyond our comprehension.

It’s only natural that we compartmentalise, to make manageable that which we cannot comprehend.

9     5   Urge of Soul =                  14/   5
2    4      Personality =                      6/   6
              Overall Self Expression = 20/ 11/ 2

TIME has the letter T at the front; this 2 energy can be represented by the second Tarot card, ‘The High Priestess’, which is about going beyond the veil into the mystery.

The 2 takes us into the mystery, brings in duality and helps us to see the detail as well as the much bigger picture. Ultimately, in time the 2 helps us to be a channel with great breadth of vision, catching a glimpse of all that is beyond intellect and focussing on the bigger picture not just the detail. The 20 in the ‘Overall Self Expression’ elevates the 2, brings in space and potential for wholeness. The key aspect of the 11/ 2 is the space that comes from the will (1) to go into the mystery (2). (Overall Self Expression for the word TIME = 20/ 11/ 2).

The ‘Soul Urge’ or ‘Motivation’ that comes from the word TIME (14/ 5) is all about breaking out of the box (4) or manmade limitations – using will (1), mind (5) and your 5 senses to find your truth in amongst the vastness of space.

The Personality (6) that comes from the word TIME represents the potential for spirit and matter to come together, for us to uncoil to become a cup for spirit, to see the beauty without the perfection of everything being compartmentalised and symmetrical.

As spiritual beings, having a very physical experience, each molecule around us and within us contains the universe. Spirit and matter potentially can come together within us when past, present and future align in a moment that pierces eternity. In these moments time stands still, as we break through the man made constraints of time, to pierce eternity. Moments such as these can be moments that we carry with us forever.

       1     5     Urge of Soul =                     6/ 6
1 7     3         Personality =                     11/ 2
                       Overall Self Expression = 17/  8

The word SPACE starts with 1, the dynamic will and unstoppable generator that can carry on forever, ultimately connecting us with great spirituality (7) and potentially causing great re-evaluation (8) as we seek to find and live our truth. (OSE, Overall Self Expression for the word SPACE = 17/ 8).

The ‘Soul Urge’ or ‘Motivation’ that comes from the word SPACE represents the potential for spirit and matter to come together, for us to uncoil and become a cup for spirit, connecting with a vastness and magnitude which is beyond our comprehension.

The Personality (11/ 2) that comes from the word SPACE gives us the potential to channel this understanding, existing in the eternity of every moment and connecting with the great universe of spirituality within us.

Title: – Victim & Victory

Interesting how victim and victory have such similar vibrations … Both have the potential to transform everything (13/ 4), the V at front (the 22nd letter) can mean great inner strength, but one is about transforming everything by building something solid with love (22/ 4, the master builder), the 18/ 9 here is re-evaluating (8) how best to help humanity. The victim can be at war with themselves, all that amazing creativity (3) can mean going from stable to unstable with the 18/ 9 here potentially holding on to a structure that has gone, while trying to build something solid

Title: – Passion & Compassion

Interesting the difference between Passion and Compassion in terms of numerology: –

The numbers for ‘Passion’ are about finding the treasure on the inside (16/ 7), so as to break out of the box communicating this (14/ 5 the messenger), uplifting others with your vision and making the trinity viable (30/ 12/ 3) (4×3=12).

With the numbers for ‘Compassion’ there is more of a meltdown (43/ 7) so the spiritual can come through and the trinity or spiritual can be revealed (7×3 = 21). There is great will (1) here influenced by emotion (21/ 3). The motivation is to build something solid based on emotion and love/wisdom (22/ 4) …
