Initiation into Numerology: A Practical Guide for Reading Your Own Numbers

Front Cover
Weiser Books, Jan 15, 2001 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 160 pages
Written for people who want to explore numbers, Johann Heyss brings together the symbology of number and the tarot so you can work with the energy in your name. Students of magic will find this a great introduction, for all magical practice is based on the meaning of number. Here he discusses the prime numbers 0-9 and explains the nuances in numbers 1-100, how they are broken down, and how you can easily read important phases in your life. He uses John Lennon's numerological chart as an example of how the following readings work: You have an esoteric number (how one behaves intimately), the inner or esoteric challenge (areas to develop), the exoteric number (your public persona), the outer or exoteric challenge (the decisive point in your professional life), a synthesis number (how outer and inner mix), a general challenge number, the path of destiny, choice, essence (what you dare not expose), balance (how you react to unusual circumstances), dharma (mission), karma, foundation, and how you connect to your emotions. He also has formulae to read the personality (your relationship with self and others), the subconscious, your second name; he provides numbers that indicate professional talent, for understanding your sexuality, your lucky number, the three challenges, the life cycles -- including two basic cycles and the four pinnacles or seasons in life -- and the major arcana number in the tarot deck that best relates to your name. By using this system, you can see how numbers will affect your life and studies. Knowing your numbers will be beneficial when exploring the esoteric path, whether you are an initiate of the Western Mystery Tradition, magic, Wicca, or the pagan way. The book is illustrated with the Crowley Thoth deck.
