The Life By Soul System – Blending Astrology and Numerology Into One
Astrology can be very detailed and extremely complicated. There are so many components — signs, planets, bodies, points, aspects, angles, houses, etc. For someone who is new to the practice, it can be a bit overwhelming at first. For people who have practiced astrology for a long time, it's still (occasionally) overwhelming for us, too.
Yet all of those complex details are what make astrology invaluable in helping you understand how you are who you are. It helps you understand rather specifically who you are at the core of your being, what you need to feel emotionally nurtured and cared for, how you think and speak, how you take action, how you approach relationships, etc.
Numerology can also be somewhat complicated; using your birthdate, the various versions of your name, and other details to help you understand how you are inclined to express yourself. If numbers and math are not your strong suits, the calculations may be a bit intimidating.
Yet numerology is not as difficult as you may think, and all of the numbers that result from those calculations, when combined with the astrological components, help you recognize which specific characteristics of the astrological signs will tend to come to the surface and how you're inclined to express them.
Numerology and astrology can also assist in the understanding of where you are in the bigger picture of your life's journey and how you can use the energies present in your life to your highest advantage.
I blended the two practices because I felt like they completed each other. Some would argue that each science is complete in its own right ... and they are. Yet I found that interpreting the two together through The Life By Soul System reveals a more focused and nuanced blueprint of an individual's unique soul design – a more complete portrait of who someone truly is emerges.
There are also many different focal points from which astrologers and numerologists can approach their practice. I choose to practice from a personal development point of view. Therefore, I'm always looking at how I can deliver the most important information with a simple clarity that makes it easier for my clients to understand themselves and the motives behind their life choices and circumstances. This self- understanding often leads to my clients accepting and embracing themselves fully and possibly transforming old belief or behavior patterns which have held them back in certain areas of their lives.
Unless they are also astrologers or numerologists themselves, I've learned that the majority of my clients don't care much about the calculations, aspects, or angles — they don't even want or need me to prove to them that I know what I'm talking about with a bunch of technical jargon. They only care about how those details apply to them. All they want is for me to tell them what the numbers and signs and lines and circles all mean to them in practical, everyday terms. They want the information that helps them make sense of themselves and their lives, and that's what I strive to provide.
That is why I developed The Life By Soul System — I wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to learn about and understand themselves as unique individuals. However, making it simple doesn't make it easy. To that point, when you choose to step into exploring yourself through The Life By Soul System, there are some things you need to know.
This astrology and numerology stuff is serious fun. Seriously.
Astrology and numerology can be fun. They can also be serious. My goal through The Life By Soul System is to let you know that they are both.
I do my best to take a casual, light-hearted approach to these practices which helps you step into greater self- awareness and make powerful life changes in an amusing and entertaining way. To that point, it's one thing to read your combinations and say, "Oh, that's so like me!" and then to giggle and go about your day. It's another thing to read your combinations and say, "Wow. How does this make a difference in my life?"
For those of you who want to keep it fun and light, and simply be able to look up the base combinations for yourself, your family, and your friends, this book — Book One — is for you.
However, there may be those of you who take this astrology-numerology subject matter a bit (or a lot) more seriously. You may value its ability to assist in self-help and personal development processes. For you, reading these combinations may give you valuable insights into yourself and others which help you move forward and upward in your life's journey.
For those of you who are taking a serious interest in and actually want to learn astrology and numerology, or who want to learn The Life By Soul System to enhance what you may already be doing in your own astrology and/or numerology practice, this is the first in a planned series of six (or more) books intended to increase in complexity as the series continues, teaching you the complete Life By Soul System.
Everyone is one of a kind.
As you learn more about The Life By Soul System, you will also learn that there really and truly is no one else like you. No one. There was no one else like you before, is no one like you now, and will not be anyone like you again.
Even twins will have things that make them different — it doesn't matter how similar their astrology may be because the numerology will differentiate their characteristics.
Each one of us has a unique and special design and a one-of-a-kind role in humanity and in this stage of history. Even if you think you're nothing special, you are special just by being alive on this planet. I know that may seem a bit far-fetched to some of you, but that really is the case.
Therefore, it is important for you to be all of who you are to the best of your ability right now.
The Life By Soul System is intended to reveal and celebrate your individual uniqueness. This is about learning, knowing, and loving yourself and who you get to be in this world, not by the world's standards, but by the Universe's standards and/or your own personal standards. The Life By Soul System is intended to move each and all of us beyond what the world says we should be in order to help us become who we actually are.
You always have free will.
We each have choices to make about ourselves and our lives. The Life By Soul System will not make these choices for you. Astrology and numerology will not make these choices for you.
The Life By Soul System and astrology and numerology in general are tools to assist you in knowing and understanding yourself more fully. They can provide you with insights and guidance. They can also help you recognize windows of opportunity and let you know how you might use your insights and guidance to make the most of those opportunities when they arise.
In the application of free will, we don't necessarily choose everything that happens to us, but we do choose how we deal with it in the moment, how we respond to it once it's done, and how we allow it to affect us from now on.
You make these choices for yourself and your life, and you get to be responsible for them.
You're personally responsible ... for you.
There is a great deal to be said about personal responsibility. If you choose to move through this self-discovery and/or self- acknowledgment process in earnest, you get to own up to both who you are and who you aren't.
You get to admit where you are right and where you are wrong. You get to admit where you are being a hypocrite and where you are honoring your word. You get to admit where you are projecting your faults, actions, blame, or shame onto others. You also get to admit to your successes and your unique talents and abilities.
In the process of acknowledging both your challenges and your accomplishments, you can empower yourself to choose differently for yourself and your life. That is, if you find making different life choices is necessary.
Not everyone will be open to this process or be willing to be responsible for who they are being through it. That's okay. The Life By Soul System is available to everybody ... but not everybody will embrace it easily.
Just because it's simple doesn't make it easy.
This isn't fortune telling.
The Life By Soul System is about developing self-awareness and personal growth and development. It's not about predicting your future, as you have free will and personal responsibility for your choices made under free will.
Therefore, if you are really serious about knowing yourself and making changes to your life, this is absolutely for you.
However, if you're trying to figure out how to make yourself someone you're not or to make someone else to be who you want them to be, this is absolutely not for you.
This isn't a horoscope or a specific predictive tool. It's not meant to tell you about your future in a definitive context. The Life By Soul System will not tell you exactly when you're going to be married or if you're going to get that big job promotion. It may reveal the best windows of opportunity for those types of life events, but there are also steps you get to take and work you get to do on yourself and for yourself in order to maximize the potential for those opportunities to be fulfilled.
If you're looking for a quick fix or that magic something that's going to make that (wo)man fall in love with you or something that will win you that lottery jackpot just by looking it up in a book or by getting a 60-minute reading, sorry — this isn't it. Astrology and numerology are not meant to serve those purposes.
Personal growth and maximizing your potential is actually a big project and a lifelong journey ... and rarely are your rewards simply handed over to you. You'll have some work to do, and you'll need to be willing do it to get the results that align with your chosen expression of your unique design. The quality of your efforts determines how and how quickly your rewards come.
Yet the effort is well worth the rewards, and that is why I've developed The Life By Soul System. I want to teach and encourage as many of us as are willing to do the work and reap the rewards that each of us has a special role and purpose in being on this Earth in the time we are on it.
I believe that when each and every one of us accepts, embraces, and expresses the truth of who we are as individuals as revealed to us in our unique soul designs, we are able to find peace within ourselves. When we find that, we are able to find peace with others. And when we can find peace with others, we can manifest peace in the world and with the Universe.
That is what The Life By Soul System is designed to do — to assist each of us in finding and making peace with ourselves within so we may create and manifest peace all around.
So let's get to it. Let's get you started in learning about yourself through The Life By Soul System.CHAPTER 2
Calculating Your Life By Soul Base Combination
Part One - Astrology – What's Your (Sun) Sign?
Western Astrology Basics
The sun signs are the foundation of Western Astrology, and are what most people are familiar with when they hear the word "astrology." Most publications and conversations about astrology are based primarily upon sun signs, since they are determined very simply by one's day of birth, and therefore, are easiest to figure out.
The following list will help you determine your astrological sun sign in Western Astrology. The dates are approximate, not exact, as they vary slightly from year to year. If your birthdate is very close to the beginning or end of one of the sign ranges, you may want to use an online chart drafting program or have your chart drafted by a professional to see which day the sun changed sign on your year of birth.
[??] Taurus 21 April – 20 May
[??] Gemini 21 May – 20 June
[??] Cancer 21 June – 20 July
[??] Leo 21 July – 20 August
[??] Virgo 21 August – 20 September
[??] Libra 21 September – 20 October
[??] Scorpio 21 October – 20 November
[??] Sagittarius 21 November – 20 December
[??] Capricorn 21 December – 20 January
[??] Aquarius 21 January – 20 February
[??] Pisces 21 February – 20 March
12 December 1972 11 November 1984
Sagittarius sun sign Scorpio sun sign
Now that we have the astrology part covered, let's move into the numerology. It's a bit more complicated as there is math involved.
Part Two - Numerology – Get Your (Life Path) Number! Latin Numerology Basics
The most important calculation you'll need to do in Latin Numerology is the life path number. This is a number derived by adding all of the digits of your birthdate to attain a single number.
Through calculation method #1, you will take all of the individual digits of your birth date and add them together. Once you have the sum of the digits, if the total is a double-digit number (which it usually is), you will either add the two digits together to reduce it to a single-digit number or leave it as what numerologists call a "master number" (i.e. – 11, 22, 33, etc ... See page 50 for more details).
Examples of Calculation Method #1:
12 December 1972
1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 2 = 25
2 + 5 = 7 Life Path Number
11 November 1984
1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 26
2 + 6 = 8 Life Path Number
Through calculation method #2, you will take each component of the birth date and reduce it as you go. If one of your birth date components starts as a master number (an 11 or 22), DO NOT REDUCE IT! However, if one of your starting components is a double-digit number that is not a master number, or if through reduction you get another double-digit number that is not a master number, continue to reduce it until it is either a master number or a single-digit number.
Once you have all three of the birth date components fully reduced, you will add those reduced numbers together. If the sum of the reduced numbers is also a double-digit number, you will reduce it until it is either a master number or a single-digit number.
Examples of Calculation Method #2:
12 December 1972
Day: 1 + 2 = 3 Month: 1 + 2 = 3 Year: 1 + 9 + 7 + 2 = 19
Day 3 + Month 3 + Year 19 = 25
2 + 5 = 7 Life Path Number
11 November 1984
Day: 11 Month: 11 Year: 1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 22
Day 11 + Month 11 + Year 22 = 44 Life Path Number
The reason it is important to calculate your birthdate BOTH ways is because you want to make sure that if a master number comes up in the calculations, you don't miss it. If you do get a master number as a final result of one of your calculation processes, you want to use it as the main life path number moving forward.
If a master number comes up in both calculation methods, it is a true master number. If it only comes up in one method, it has a greater likelihood of toggling between its mastery and its reduced form. You'll learn more about master number reduction as you read about the numbers in the Numeric Energies section.
Part Three - Blending Your Astrology & Numerology to Determine Your Base Combination in The Life by Soul System
Using the same birth date examples as in the Astrology and Numerology Basics sections, here are two examples of how to combine the sun sign and the life path Number to determine your Life by Soul System base combination.
12 December 1972
12/12/1972 = Sagittarius sun sign
Day: 12 becomes 1+2 = 3
Month: 12 becomes 1+2 = 3
Year: 1972 becomes 1+9+7+2 = 19 [right arrow] 1+9 = 10 [right arrow] 1+0 = 1
Then take the single digits for each component and add those together. The sum is your life path number.
Day 3 + Month 3 + Year 1 = 7
Life Path Number = 7
This person is identified as having a "Sagittarius 7" base combination in The Life by Soul System.
11 November 1984
11/11/1984 = Scorpio sun sign
Day: 11 remains as 11 = 11
Month: 11 remains as 11 = 11
Year: 1984 becomes 1+9+8+4 = 22
Day 11 + Month 11 + Year
22 = 44
Life Path Number = 44
This person is identified as having a "Scorpio 44" base combination in The Life by Soul System.
Through the two previous examples, you now understand the first step in how astrology and numerology are combined to create combinations in The Life by Soul System. The sun sign and life path are merged to provide you with your base combination energy, which is the primary and dominant identification of your being in The Life by Soul System.
