Q. What is astrology?
A. For centuries there has been a misunderstanding concerning the nature of astrology to the effect that the heavens somehow “influence” events here on Earth. This theory of celestial influence has penetrated into the modern world until today it is the main concept or idea of astrology supported by the public, the lay astrological audience.
Professional astrologers do not hold with theories of celestial influence. Instead, the modern astrologer conceives of the heavens and Earth as united, interpenetrating, and sharing a common space and time. The great cosmic or celestial events happening around and beyond the Earth (eclipses, lineups, and so on) are not seen as CAUSING events to occur on Earth, but as great signatures of events ALSO happening here on Earth. In other words, there is no “cause” in the heavens followed by an “effect” here on Earth. Instead, both planetary and earthly events happen simultaneously and are mutually reflective. Neither is the cause of the other; both are the product of the moment, one acted out in the heavens above, the other here on the Earth below. While astrologers don’t feel that heavenly events are the cause of events here on Earth, they do feel that specific heavenly events are enacted here on the Earth too, at the same moment. In other words, there is only one grand “play.” The great drama enacted in the sky is also acted out (in exact detail) here on Earth in the same instant.
Another way to say this is that the Earth is part of the cosmos and shares in that cosmic moment. Scientists have been discovering (for example) that sunspots, solar flares, and solar activity have a very definite (and almost immediate) effect here on Earth. Astrologers tend to feel that all major cosmic events such as eclipses are interactive; they represent an activity also taking place within us and our consciousness.
Astrology is a study of heavenly cycles and cosmic events as they are reflected in our earthly environment and vice-versa, a vast cosmic clock. Astrologers find the cosmic patterns revealed in the rhythmic motions of the planets a great help in shedding light on the seeming helter-skelter of everyday life. Astrologers may have their heads in the heavens, but only to better guide their feet here on Earth.
Q. What is numerology?
A. What characterises a person the most ? The name of course, as well as the date of birth. There are no people with the same characteristics. You are completely unique. But a name is not only a simple arrangement of letters, it is also an impression, a rhythm, a sort of music.
You don’t expect to have the same behaviour as other people and you are right. Each name has different vibrations, it’s own potential and therefore, a particular impression to which one can be more or less sensitive to.
Numerology is a very ancient science which allows the understanding of the psychological characteristics contained in each name, by quantifying and studying the hidden music or vibration, thanks to a symbolic letter-number correspondence. Numerology is the science of letters, numbers, cycles, vibrations and symbols giving information on psychology and human behaviour. Today, scientists show a growing interest in the use of vibrations and frequencies. Chronobiology, radio, television and x-rays are some examples. Physicians have learnt that material previously thought to be inert, has it’s own identity defined by it’s internal vibrations. Life is a vibration and all that vibrates has energy.
Numerology is circulating more quickly and more widely. It responds to the need we have to know ourselves better and in which direction we should go. In a word, to know a little better who we are and how to fit well into our environment, our life and the lives of others.
Numerology needs simply the date of birth and full name. This makes it particularly practical and precise, while often giving a surprising approach to the functioning of the human.
The interest of this science is to bring a good understanding of the vibrations that you will meet during your life, this is so that you can make the most of the advantages and avoid the excesses.
The principal numbers in Numerology are the Desire Number, Expression Number and the Intimate Number.
Numerological explanation of the basic numbers
1 (corresponding to A, J, S, ç, é, ê, è) is the first number, the beginning of everything. It is upright and proud, like the head of the line, it is masculine (Yang), alone and autonomous. The number 1 is willing, authoritative and has self-confidence… It is the symbol of individuality.
2 After the previous period of assertion, the 2 (corresponding to B, T, K, ö) tries now to maintain the union, looks for collaboration or friendship. 2 forms a couple, a duality. It expresses interiorisation, imagination and reproductive power. It is also a little uncertain. It is the symbol of the relationship, the association, it is feminine (Yin), the second pole, a receptor rather than an emitter.
3 After the period of union, the 3 is now the expression of the relationship between 1 and 2, in other words, creation, children, the fruit of their union (C, L, U, ù, û). It is the search for unity, balance in creativity, exteriorisation, expression and joy of living. It is the symbol of the trilogy that exists in all civilisations (The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost ; Osiris, Isis and Horus ; Past, Present and Future ; Birth, Life, Death).
4 Symbol of the square, the 4 elements (Fire, Earth, Water and Air), the 4 seasons. 4 (letters D, M, V) refers to stability, order, work and concrete action. It is a feminine number, symbolising the home and it’s construction (4 walls). However, this number is a little restrictive in the material area.
5 This number symbolise now a calling, the desire to travel and have adventures out of the house (4). It is the 5 senses that allow one to experiment (letters E, N, W, î, ë). It is the search for the new, for variety and pleasure… 5 is very energetic, has a very lively mind, but is also unstable. Semantically, it incarnates free-will.
6 After the adventure of the 5, the 6 aspires now to calm and comfort (letters F, O, X, ô, ä). It is the number of love, harmony, conciliation and comfort. Graphically it is all curves ; the 6 rounds off the angles. 6 symbolises flexibility, beauty and a certain attraction for the noble soul. 6 has a family sense, it is generous and wants to give pleasure to the whole world, which can sometimes be complicated. 6 is full of resources and gifted with intuition. The graphic symbol of 6 shows the main circle in the lower part contrary to the 9 and thus indicates an activity more to do with feelings, matter and sensuality rather than the mental.
7 After the state of responsibilities and sentimental harmony, the 7 looks now for wisdom (letters G, P, Y). It’s vertical stem which is a little tilted, folds under the weight of it’s horizontal mental bar. Contrary to 1, it’s stability does not come from being vertical but from it’s balance. 7 symbolises the balance which is necessary between the mental and the deep self, between the Yin and Yang. 7 is not very interested in material things, it likes to adopt an attitude of retreat for it’s favourite activity : reflection and seeing things clearly.
8 After the state of wisdom acquisition (7), the 8 wants now to use it’s power and intelligence, to confront with the material world in order to achieve great things, to earn money (letters H, Q, Z, ü). Overflowing with dynamism after the semi-retirement in 7, 8 needs a lot of space to be comfortable, to give itself new challenges but also to express it’s protective kindness. Contrary to 1 who is ambitious and always ready to belt along, 8 knows how to put itself in the middle of the road, to use the space and control the speed with more maturity than 1. 8 is very powerful in it’s success as well as in failures, because it knows how to get back on it’s feet very quickly. Besides it’s demanding aspects, the bond between the two circles it has graphically, symbolises difficulties with inner communication, between reason and the heart.
9 is the last figure. It symbolises outcome (I, R, à, â). In 9 you harvest what you have sewn previously. It’s positive aspects are idealism, humanism, with openness on the world (tolerance, new way of life or of thinking) but it can also have moments of inner tension, jolts, breaks, the price to pay after all the previous bad actions. 9 finishes the present cycle and prefigures the following. The 9th month of pregnancy will end gestation and announce the birth of a child. 9 is synonymous with sensitivity and altruism. Graphically, 9 symbolises a circle in the upper part which indicates an activity supported more in the mind rather than matter area.
From number 10, the theosophical addition gives 10 = 1 + 0 = 1, 12 gives 3 etc. There are 3 exceptions ; 11, 22 and 33 which are master numbers. They have a very powerful vibration and generally they will be lived as 2, 4 and 6.
