Numerology Comes of Age
by Pauline Edward - Numerology Comes of Age - November 2007

Numerology, the practice of assigning numeric values to dates as well as to the names of people, places, and objects, has been around for centuries. Throughout much of its history, it has figured in esoteric, occult, magical, and divinatory bodies of knowledge, accessible only to the initiated few. In recent years, along with astrology, tarot, and the I Ching, numerology has benefited tremendously from the free flow of information made available through books and now through the Internet. Much of what once was considered secretive and kept from the masses has now rapidly become mainstream. The current explosion of the New Age and Self Help markets tells of a significant thirst for knowledge and need for information, but at the same time also shows a general readiness for embracing concepts that are bold and daring.

Eager to directly affect the course of their lives, people from all walks of life are using techniques that not so long ago would have been considered a little bit unusual, if not altogether magical. Business people, entrepreneurs, and professionals from all fields are applying creative visualization, writing positive affirmations, and building picture books to strengthen their power to attract what they desire in life. In Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey describes Habit 2 as: “Begin with the end in mind.” He suggests that “all things are created twice:” first in the mind, and then secondly in the body, through action.

Planning and goal setting have become popular New Year rituals as people list their successes of the previous year and write out their new goals for the coming year. The word is: those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Writing goals help clarify desires and focuses intention in a particular direction, increasing the chance of success. Yet amidst this flurry of planning and goal setting efforts, no one actually stops to ask whether or not the timing is appropriate for the intended goal. People are simply assuming that proper thinking habits and right action are all that is needed.

Timing, which has normally been the domain of astrologers and numerologists, is now being made available to anyone who stops to consider the matter. One extremely powerful tool is the Nine-Year Cycle, commonly used by numerologists, but also very accessible to anyone who can count to nine! In fact, the technique is so simple and so powerful that it may easily become the second most important consideration in decision making next to the four seasons. Just as a person would not waste time planting tomato seeds in a January frost, they would not take major career initiatives in the middle of a number 9 Personal Year.

An Interview with Pauline Edward, author of The Power of Time
by Llewellyn

1. I understand you are an astrologer; The Power of Time is about numerology. Why do you now practice astrology?

In my consulting practice with clients, I have developed a system whereby I take the best of both worlds. Numerology and astrology present different, yet equally valuable facets of the life experience, and by synthesizing the information from each system, I obtain a quick and accurate portrait of the person and their circumstances. Clients are looking for workable solutions for the immediate situations in their lives. This approach allows me to provide them not only with information they can use in a practical way, but also knowledge about the trends and cycles at work in their lives. While I use astrology as a base, my clients can more easily relate to numbers like the Life Path and Personal Year numbers. It gives us a point of reference as we work together to find solutions and gain understanding.

How does numerology work? How does The Power of Time address numerology?

Numerology works much like a system of symbols that reflect the nature of a person’s life journey. Each number acts as an archetype of sorts, representing aspects of the human experience. For example, the number 1 reflects leadership, initiative, and self-reliance, while the number two is the number of interaction, cooperation, and teamwork. The Power of Time introduces the basic numbers that are found in the birth date, and shows how these work in your life. It provides simple exercises that enable you to see how the numbers have worked throughout your life. This makes it very easy to then plan your year based on your personal trends.

What if I don’t believe in numerology? Can I still benefit from this book?

Absolutely! The cool thing about The Power of Time is just that: you don’t have to believe in numerology to see it at work in your life any more than you need to believe in meteorology to recognize seasonal weather patterns. As you complete the exercises you’ll quickly see first hand how the numbers are working in your life. It’s really amazing. You have to try it, especially if you are a nonbeliever. The greatest satisfaction I get is when people in my workshops one after the other exclaim “Wow! This is really working!” After having read the book, you’ll probably have a whole new appreciation for some of the forces at work in our universe, unexplained forces like numerology.

How can knowing my numbers help me?

The first thing your numbers will give you is a clear picture of your overall life purpose. That in itself can remove many of the doubts and questions that often arise during periods of excessive stress or transition. The second benefit of numerology comes from its ability to clearly identify trends and opportunities, past, present, and future. The proper knowledge of your personal trends can help clarify what you should do, and when. In this way, you can make more appropriate choices, given your personal climate.

Scott Cunningham
Scott Cunningham practiced magic actively for over twenty years. He was the author of more than fifty books covering both fiction and non-fiction subject matter; sixteen of his titles are published by Llewellyn Publications. Scott's books reflect a broad range of interests within the New Age sphere, where he was very highly regarded.

Planetary Ages
An ancient association of planets with a person’s age, indicating phases in that person’s life.

For example:
Moon: (Birth–4 yrs.) Personal growth
Mercury: (5–14 yrs.) Education

Herb Magic
Herb magic is the utilization of the energies contained within herbs to create positive transformations. This practice doesn’t solely rely on plant power to create these changes, though. The magician sends energy into the herbs from her or his own body. The two energies (human and plant) are mixed, given purpose and sent forth to their magical goal. - New Releases - November 2007
