The Shadow Sides of Each Number

Usually when you use numerology to look at relationships, you look at two different types of numbers.

First you look at the Life Path number (the sum of the numbers in your birthdate reduced to a single digit) and then you also look at the Destiny number (which is based on the sum of the letter values in your first name.) Sometimes a matching soul urge number can also reveal a lot about a potential soul mate.

No matter what aspect of the self they are portraying, the numbers in themselves have both negative and positive traits. Often if you pay for a reading, the numerologist will spend a lot of time telling you the flattering aspects of each of these numbers (1 is a fantastic leader! - 2 means a good marriage! - 3 means fame! Etc.)

However each number is symbolic of just as many negative traits as positive ones. These negative traits can be described as being the shadow side of the Life Path Number Personality.

If you really want to get to know someone, then also consider the following when examining their numbers, as even the greatest of human beings is not perfect. The following is a description of some of the negative personality traits that can be associated with each number in terms of Life Path, Destiny Number, Soul Urge (the vowels) and the Personality Number (the consonants.)

Please don't be offended by the following, since we are talking about tendencies here, not absolutes!

In next week's newsletter we will take a look at how to woo the
different numbers when it comes to impressing them business-wise or romantically.

 Until next time...

How to Woo A ..

Sometimes you are trying to get someone's attention romantically, and other times you are trying to make a good impression on them so they will hire you for a job. No matter what your reason for trying to make an impact on someone emotionally, numerology can go a long way towards assisting you in figuring out what makes someone tick.

If you really want to get to know someone, calculate all of the  numbers that create him or her as sentient human beings with  desires and wishes. This includes the Life Path Number (the sum of the birth date reduced to one digit), the Destiny Number (the full name), Soul Urge (the vowels) and the Personality Number (the consonants.) Then consult with the interpretations below to find out how to get them to notice you.

How to Woo A ...

Number 1 Life Path - Show your willingness to be a follower, not a leader. A gift of cash to a good cause in his or her name always impresses a number 1.

Number 1 Destiny - Indicate that you won't mind giving up your life for this person's. Show loyalty, volunteer to be this person's
personal assistant and make it clear you will never ask much for
yourself. Never outshine this individual or they will consider you
an enemy.

Number 1 Soul Urge - Make it clear to this person that you
understand politics and special needs and that infidelities or
consorting with your enemies doesn't bother you. Soul Urge 1's
need to not be condemned for "doing what they have to do."

Number 1 Personality - Give them a picture of themselves that  is flattering or any kind of award or recognition (faux or not)  that recognizes them as number 1. The Personality 1 also  appreciates cash, trips to a spa, makeovers and shopping sprees as gifts.

How To Woo A ...

Number 2 Life Path - Nothing makes this person happier than a marriage proposal and a wedding ring.

Number 2 Destiny- Second honeymoons, promises of love and romance
and eternal fidelity please this type. In business, signing long leases or long contracts makes this type happy.

Number 2 Soul Urge - Teddy bears, pictures of you ... anything that constantly reminds them that you are always there for them despite their enormous insecurity ... always pleases a 2.

Number 2 Personality - This type is very much gratified by a pregnancy as the child cements the reality of the relationship for them. Kids are the glue that keep them together. They also appreciate any form of seduction - dinners out, long trips with just the two of you and sentimental objects and jewelry as gifts.
Pulling on the heartstrings is the key to winning over the Number 2 personality.

How To Woo A ...

Number 3 Life Path - Give him or her a long rope and the freedom to talk to or even have an affair with whomever they want.

Number 3 Destiny - A musical instrument, trip to a spa, clothes or anything that improves their performance as entertainers matters to them the most. They also like toys.

Number 3 Soul Urge - This person is likely to be most impressed by an exotic vacation. Giving them a picture of themselves (a painted portrait for example) will impress them too. Showing them off in public is also appreciated.

Number 3 Personality - This person sees him or herself as being very unique and above the rules that normally apply to any of the other numbers. As they are so special, they appreciate gifts and ideas that are one of a kind and actions that are not easily imitated.

How To Woo A ...

Number 4 Life Path - A life-long promise to take care of this  person in every way means the most to them. Individuals who are not critical of them, or who will not blame them for their situation also impress them. Cash or a roof over their heads are the best gift.

Number 4 Life Destiny - An offer of unconditional love either in  the form of marriage or life long friendship is often required.  Financial help is always appreciated by a hard done by 4.

Number 4 Soul Urge - Any type of vacation or holiday or offer to  clear up the number 4's debts usually impresses them.

Number 4 Personality - Trips to spas, paying off bills and taking  care of the basics that they can't often impresses a 4. Paying a  dental bill or back rent usually will win a 4's heart. 

How To Woo A ...

Number 5 Life Path - This person greatly appreciates a long  vacation or exotic trip.

Number 5 Destiny - Gifts such as luggage, air miles points and  paying for travel expenses impresses this individual the most. 

Number 5 Soul Urge - This person will always be in love with the person that gives them the most freedom, both physically and emotionally.

Number 5 Personality - A 5 often can't stick to anything for long, so you need to keep things exciting and constantly changing to hold their attention. They love going to the movies, collecting things and of course travel - these things are the key to their heart.

How To Woo A ...

Number 6 Life Path - A promise of marriage usually leads to sex. Old fashioned wining and dining appeals to them most. They like to be courted in traditional ways.

Number 6 Destiny - Give their parents a gift or paying respect to
the person's parents in some way (taking them to dinner) makes this number hold you in their highest esteem.

Number 6 Soul Urge - Offer to move in with the parents should you get married, or invite the parents or siblings to stay with you if necessary

Number 6 Personality - This number is most impressed if you offer to work for the family business. They also appreciate gifts that are family oriented such as family portraits, kitchen renovations and swimming pools. Anything that will entertain an extended family makes them very happy.

How To Woo A ...   

Number 7 Life Path - As they are very self-conscious, you are best to woo a 7 by being as casual as possible so they don't feel threatened. Physical intimacy needs to be approached very gently and in fact with many of them, it will not happen at all. 

Number 7 Destiny - A donation to a great cause or work in progress greatly impresses a 7. They are often broke, even though they are geniuses, so cash also impresses them.

Number 7 Soul Urge - The perfect companion for a 7 will take care of them in every way - including doing the cooking, cleaning and being a personal assistant. This should be done without expectation of emotional rewards.

Number 7 Personality - The person appreciates the gift of trust, as most of them are well aware that their emotional problems make it difficult for them to deal with.

How To Woo A ...

Number 8 Life Path - These individuals appreciate a formal,  slightly distant companion who shows a lot of taste and class. 

Number 8 Destiny - Letting this person show off by treating you  well is often the key to their heart. They like to feel like the  hero or rescuer in a person's life. 

Number 8 Soul Urge - The person may not be that interested in sex and more interested in cerebral and philanthropic matters. They are very impressed by donations in their name to charity.

Number 8 Personality - The person may not be that interested in material things as they can usually buy themselves anything they want. They like to be trusted and to be given a long rope in a relationship to do what they like and see whom they like. They are only really impressed by gifts that are really expensive and unique.

How To Woo A ...

Number 9 Life Path - This person appreciates spiritual principles and likes gifts that recognize that they are on a course of self-improvement - self help books, new age items or religious items.

Number 9 Destiny - A sure way to impress the 9 Destiny number is to make a charitable donation in his or her name to a good cause.

Number 9 Soul Urge - These wounded healers are always looking for a soul mate - a promise that is kept means a lot to them.

Number 9 Personality - Things to keep them grounded and focused such as daytime organizers, shelves or paying for a maid are especially appreciated by this very disorganized and flaky number. 

In next few newsletters we will start looking at relationship compatibility between different numbers.

Until next time..

Jupiter In Leo + Triple Sevens + A Rare Gift To Help You Manifest Your Deepest Soul Desires

Astral Paradigms of Consciousness

Jupiter Is On The Move

This week (July 16th – July 25th, 2014) is one of the most powerful weeks of the year from both a numerological and astrological perspective. Our largest and most energetically powerful planet, Jupiter, is changing signs… and this only happens ONCE A YEAR.
Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion, and creativity and for the past 52 weeks it was in the nurturing sign of Cancer, which is ruled by the moon. This was a time of deep self-reflection which likely brought about valuable lessons related to your home environment, emotional well-being, and inner self.
But now it’s time to step out and shine like the sun because on July 16th, Jupiter started it’s transition into Leo, an exuberant sign of joy, manifestation, and self-expression.
AND, it’s all happening during one of the luckiest weeks of the year!

Triple Sevens

In Numerology, 7-16-2014 is a 7-7-7 day (1+6 = 7 and 2014 is a 7 Universal Year). Any time a number is in triplicate it is a reminder that you can create anything you want.

Not only that but there’s another 7-7-7 day coming up in just a few days on July 25, 2014 (2+5 = 7).

3 is the number of creation as in the holy trinity, and the union of body, mind and spirit. (Also two people together can create a 3rd being which is truly an expression of our creation).

And 7 is the number of the soul.
So, 7 and 3 together are the luckiest numbers to help you manifest your soul’s desires. It’s no wonder 7-7-7 is the number of the jackpot!

Reprogram Yourself for Happiness

Many strides have been made in the study of the human brain, and some of them can tell us why we spend more time worrying than we do being happy. Prehistoric structures in our brains still keep us on the alert for danger, and in this modern, information-saturated world, these structures are the source of worry, nervousness, and even depression – the feelings that fight against our need for safety, comfort and connection with others.

The good news is that all it takes to increase your level of happiness is learning how to expand positive feelings when you have them. You can make any good feeling last for more than a moment if you practice “holding on” to it.

Groups of neurons in the brain fire together during pleasant experiences, and if those experiences happen repeatedly, they begin to wire themselves together, creating a “neuronal association” custom tailored for happiness.

Take Control Certain ways of doing this can be found in your Numerology Chart, but it’s not likely that “big” elements like the Life Path or Expression tell the whole story. Any of the numbers below may relate to one of the other elements or a current time cycle, and they may manifest because they happen to be working together. So read through the lines below and identify the issues that you need to address, because they matter more than the numbers when it comes to reprogramming yourself for happiness.

1. Slow down and welcome little signs of happiness. A cute baby in a stroller, the leaves turning colors, a smile from a stranger – let them all be significant enough to notice; attention makes the feeling stronger.

2. Appreciate others, if only for a moment. When you thank others for really small things, you literally pick up on their appreciation of you. This is scientific fact, not science fiction – appreciation always goes both ways.

3. Seek comfort; not distraction. A warm blanket, fresh air or sitting in the sun will do a lot more for you than trying to get things done when you feel bad, which only adds to the emotional stress you are trying to relieve.

4. Learn to enjoy the variety available to you through nature and other people. You need to enjoy other things than those inside your “comfort zone.” Relax and loosen emotional ruts and habits, and you will thrive.

5. Pay attention to your routines and stay with your positive experiences. Let yourself experience the feelings and sensory experiences that are available to you all day, and try to stick with new feelings about ordinary things.

6. Try to figure out what gives you a sense of feeling safe, and learn how to cultivate that experience. Some people overdo it with comfort food or powerful substances when things go awry; doing so does just the opposite.

7. Stop borrowing problems from the future, because that’s what we are doing when we worry; we create future scenarios that we work hard to avoid, almost guaranteeing that we wire our brains for failure, not success.

8. Look for positive things in everyone you encounter; an easy way to start is by thinking about giving a compliment anyone you are used to. It makes them feel appreciated and supported, and you will share in that feeling.

9. Learn to be on your own “side” – almost all of us have ways to express our support and comfort others, but few of us do so for ourselves. When you are stressed or worried, tell yourself what you would say to a friend in need.

To refresh your memory, calculate your Karmic number by
eliminating all the vowels from your name. Assign the
consonants the numerical equivalents as designated on the
chart below and then reduce the number to a single digit.

Karmic Number 1
Your best way to reap good karma in this life is to
concentrate less on your own aims, and show others the way
to their success. Practicing stewardship, mentorship and
philanthropy helps you make decisions about the course of
your own life. Your biggest fear is to be ignored. You may
appear as controlling or selfish to others at first
Karmic Number 2
Loving yourself and taking care of yourself will enable you
to love and take care of others in this life without
sacrificing your dignity and self-esteem. Practice letting
go of such toxic emotional habits as possessiveness,
jealousy and obsession. Your biggest fear is abandonment.
Others' first impression of you may be that of a needy or
manipulative individual.
Karmic Number 3
Do the creative things you love just for the sheer joy of
doing them and the money will come. If you start feeling
that the world owes you a living, immediately go out and
practice an act of random kindness or charity to humble
yourself. Being smothered, bored or trapped are among your
biggest fears. You may appear threatening or meddlesome to
others at first impression.
Karmic Number 4
Achieving world peace is one thing, but first one must be
harmonious inside. As you are such a caretaker of others,
you are advised to take time out from your focus on others
and regularly reconnect with your higher self by practicing
yoga or meditation. Your biggest fear is that things will
slide into disorder or chaos. You may appear to others as
fanatical or boring at first impression.
Karmic Number 5
You attract the best karma by sacrificing the spotlight to
others once in a while, no matter how untalented they may
seem to you. Realize that everybody has a right to express
themselves without judgement or criticism from you.
Dispensing with pride and learning to be humble is often
corrective to your karma. Others first impression of you
might be of an egotistical or judgmental individual.
Karmic Number 6
You attract the best fortune by doing unto others, as they
would do unto you. Your karma is vastly improved if you can
get past the idea that you must save up your love for that
one special someone and treat everyone you meet as specially
as you would your soul mate. Your biggest fear is that
others will take credit for your work. On first impression,
others may see you as a social climber or as taking others
for granted.
Karmic Number 7
Number 7's can improve their karma by extending a helping
hand to those they would normally consider to be
contemptible in behavior. Snobbishness can also be a
problem. 7's can also create good karma by learning to
master their greatest fears such as fear of abandonment and
fear of "letting go." The first impression that others may
have of you is that you are too complicated or neurotic to
get to know well.
Karmic Number 8
Number 8's reap the greatest karmic rewards by having faith
and working diligently to accomplish their goals no matter
what others say. As 8s are often wealthy, they reap what
they sow by donating at least 10% of their income to
charities. Your biggest fear is poverty. Others' first
impressions of you might be of a greedy or shallow
Karmic Number 9
Number 9's can correct their karma by displaying more faith
in the concept that the universe is a benevolent, rather
than a cruel place. Detaching from their emotions and
consistently displaying an upbeat and positive attitude
usually brings them great rewards. Your biggest fear is that
others will never trust you or vice versa. Others' first
impression of you might be of a person that is desperately
seeking approval or as passive aggressive.
Karmic Number 11
Master number 11's reap the greatest karmic rewards by
having faith in their intuition as opposed to their rational
minds. Elevens's need to work on their faith and trust in
other people as fate has a way of only bringing them what
they expect. If an 11 expects the worst than he or she will
get the worst. If she or he expects the best, then they are
usually blessed. Your biggest fear is that there is no God.
Other people's first impression of you might include words
such as "flaky" or "eccentric."
Karmic Number 22
Master number 22's succeed the best if they learn to control
the thoughts that rule their subconscious mind. As they are
the ultimate manifesters of dreams into reality, a 22 reaps
the greatest rewards by choosing his or her thoughts
carefully. Positive thoughts bring a 22 positive things.
Negative thoughts often manifest as roadblocks to success or
prosperity. Your biggest fear is that you will let others
down. Others first impression of you is often very positive.
They see you as a leader or mentor and they are right.

Platelets are one of the three cellular elements of the blood, whose function (along with the coagulation factors) is to stop bleeding.[1] Platelets have no nucleus: they are fragments of cytoplasm which are derived from the megakaryocytes[2] of the bone marrow, and then enter the circulation. These unactivated platelets are biconvex discoid structures [3][4] shaped like a lens, 2–3 µm in greatest diameter.[5] Platelets are found only in mammals, an adaptation that may have evolved to offset the risk of death from hemorrhage at childbirth – a risk unique to mammals.[6]

On a stained blood smear, platelets appear as dark purple spots, about 20% the diameter of red blood cells. The smear is used to examine platelets for size, shape, qualitative number, and clumping. The ratio of platelets to red blood cells in a healthy adult is 1/10 to 1/20.

The main function of platelets is to contribute to hemostasis: the process of stopping bleeding at the site of interrupted endothelium. They gather at the site and unless the interruption is physically too large, they plug the hole. First, platelets attach to substances outside the interrupted endothelium: adhesion. Second, they change shape, turn on receptors and secrete chemical messengers: activation. Third, they connect to each other through receptor bridges: aggregation.[7] Formation of this platelet plug (primary hemostasis) is associated with activation of the coagulation cascade with resultant fibrin deposition and linking (secondary hemostasis). These processes may overlap: the spectrum is from a predominantly platelet plug, or "white clot" to a predominantly fibrin clot, or "red clot" or the more typical mixture. The final result is the clot. Some would add the subsequent clot retraction and platelet inhibition as fourth and fifth steps to the completion of the process[8] and still others a sixth step wound repair.

Low platelet concentration is thrombocytopenia and is due to either decreased production or increased destruction. Elevated platelet concentration is thrombocytosis and is either congenital, reactive (to cytokines), or due to unregulated production: one of the myeloprolerative neoplasms or certain other myeloid neoplasms. A disorder of platelet function is a thrombocytopathy.

Normal platelets can respond to an abnormality on the vessel wall rather than to hemorrhage, resulting in inappropriate platelet adhesion/activation and thrombosis:the formation of a clot within an intact vessel. These arise by different mechanisms than a normal clot. Examples are: extending the fibrin clot of venous thrombosis; extending an unstable or ruptured arterial plaque, causing arterial thrombosis; and microcirculatory thrombosis. An arterial thrombus may partially obstruct blood flow, causing downstream ischemia; or completely obstruct it, causing downstream infarction.
