Numerology Q & A: Analyzing Foreign Language Names

April 16th, 2018
Share Button

Question:
“How do I analyze foreign language names, that is, in non-abc alphabets. Do we transliterate the name into English for a standard abc analysis, or do we analyze the name in its original language, by allocating the appropriate numbers to the letters sequentially? There are arguments for both methods, but I have had very good results using the transliteration method, while the other method did not give me anything meaningful. I’d be curious to hear your take on and experience with this question.”

“Do the numerological values of letters represent their underlying sounds or their place in the sequence of the alphabet? Every single human language is a collection of sounds (energy frequencies that can be depicted on a chart), and these sounds are represented in the various alphabets by different symbols–the letters. So if the letters have numerical values, it is essentially the sounds (= frequencies) that have these values, and these values should be the same no matter with which symbols they are represented, and a transliteration is exactly this: representing the sounds of one language with letters/symbols of a different language. Thus, is a transliteration really an ‘other’ name?”

“However, this would raise the question of comparing if the various representations of the same sound have the same value in different alphabets. But on the other hand, what is the ‘logic’ in the sequence of letters in any specific alphabet, especially since different languages can have different placements for the same letter?”

Answer:
My findings show that it’s important to analyze the birth name, the exact name on the legal birth certificate, in its original language, the language/alphabet used in naming the person. That means you must allocate the appropriate numbers to the letters sequentially.

Other methods, and using a name other than the one on the legal birth certificate, yield persona analyses, which can be useful in some ways.

You say above, “…it is essentially the sounds (= frequencies) that have these values, and these values should be the same no matter with which symbols they are represented,” but phonetic numerology is a separate, supplemental form of analysis, one that is important, but does not take the place of what I describe above. It’s reasonable to say that transliteration is another name, through phonetic numerology.

The numerological values of letters/symbols represent their place in the sequence of the respective alphabet. The logic in respecting the numbered sequence of letters in any given alphabet is supported through long-term empirical research. Different placements for the same letter in various alphabets are irrelevant. I recommend avoiding superimposing a foreign alphabet/language on someone’s name through numerology. The English language/alphabet is suitable in numerology calculations only for those who were named in it.

A Russian, for example, using his persona English version name will get only a persona read by using that persona name with numerology based on the English language.

An aside, changing your name only changes your persona, it won’t change your life.

Although I find name-based numerology useful by itself, ultimately, my findings show birth date and exact time-based numerology and astrology (combined with name-based numerology) to be most accurate in character analysis and prediction.

Astrology Q & A: Current Location or Birth Location for Progressed Charts?

March 26th, 2018
Share Button

Question:
“When running a progressed or solar return chart, do you use the place of birth or the current place of residence? I was born on the other side of the world and have not lived there since I was five.”

Answer:
My findings corroborate the notion that birth location is by far the most important in all astrology and numerology matters. Solar and lunar return charts, progressed charts, and other predictive methodologies are most accurate based on birth location. Current location, if different than birth location, can be used as background energy.

Relocation doesn’t alter personal fate, but is part of it. Collective personal timing using natal patterns explains the stark contrast in life circumstances sometimes experienced after relocation. Challenges and rewards thought to be linked exclusively with a different location turn out to be hidden all along in the complex natal patterns.

By the way, I’ve found progressed charts, solar and lunar return charts, transits, and other modern-focused methods to be useful only as the finishing touches in an approach involving more comprehensive, ancient methodologies (up to about 1700 AD).

Mercury Retrograde March 22 to April 15 2018

March 5th, 2018
Share Button

Mercury retrograde, a malefic astrological event, occurs in less than three weeks.

Common problems include communication misunderstandings, complications involving new endeavors, and delays of all types. Be careful with important decisions, new plans, and legal contracts because judgment tends to be substandard.

Revisiting the past is common during Mercury retrograde, as is originating new solutions for old problems.

See this page for a thorough list of Mercury retrograde themes and a general timeline.

As mentioned in the linked information above, the approximate three-week period leading up to Mercury retrograde usually involves more challenges than the actual retrograde period.

Mercury retrograde March 22 2018 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 3-22-2018 at 5:18 p.m. PDT, 16 degrees 54 minutes Aries.
  2. Mercury goes direct 4-15-2018 at 2:20 a.m. PDT, 04 degrees 46 minutes Aries.

The bar graph in this post includes the March 2018 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrological events.

Tracking Mercury retrogrades allows you to gain an understanding of the cyclical nature of life, and you can even reduce your overall risk in everyday life when you know the typical drawbacks of this phenomenon.

Personality Analysis: Intelligence vs. Intellectualism

February 12th, 2018
Share Button

The basic meaning of intelligence involves mental sharpness, comprehension, and adept application of knowledge.

There are various types of intelligence, including practical intelligence, emotional intelligence, and spiritual intelligence.

In a mundane sense, my findings show that intelligent people more often possess admirable traits such as a tendency to be sensible, realistic, grounded, effective, and no-nonsense.

Intelligent people may be easy to identify during an initial conversation, but oftentimes not. Additionally, subconscious fears and defenses distort objectivity. The stronger a person’s fears and defenses, the harder it is for him or her to see other people’s character objectively. Appearance can be misleading. A person may not come across as intelligent; perhaps he doesn’t have a way with words like intellectuals tend to, yet his solutions and problem solving skills may be light years ahead of his intellectual counterpart.

Alternatively, my findings show that intellectuals more often posses undesirable traits such as self-deception, excessive idealism, and a tendency to be unrealistic.

Espousing the theoretical and unsubstantiated doesn’t fix real world problems such as a stagnant economy and low wages. The money to fund endless government giveaways won’t magically appear no matter how brilliantly the intellectual denies scarcity and no matter how much he ignores the idea of fiscal sustainability.

Some of the key personality traits I review in evaluating intelligence, utilizing my proprietary systems of analysis (including handwriting analysis) include the following: logical thinking; investigative thinking; ability to make distinctions/sense of discernment; inquisitiveness; originality; organizational ability; analytical ability; visionary thinking; flexibility; and quick comprehension.

I also review the following traits, and others, which tend to symbolize a lack of intelligence: apathy; undeveloped mental abilities; superficial thinking; naiveté; emotional immaturity; lack of emotional balance; and disorderly thinking.

Finally, I review the following traits, and others, which intellectuals, not intelligent people, tend to posses—these detrimental attributes keep him trapped in theories and abstract notions (and outdated ideologies), while he avoids hard, cold realities that actual intelligent people come to realize: stubbornness; excessive abstract thinking; excessive fantasy orientation; lack of objectivity; self-deceit; and rationalization.

A person can be highly intellectual and intelligent at the same time, but the negative characteristics listed above, and others, lead the intellectual to make dumb decisions.

Nobody is perfect and everyone has his or her own unique fears and defenses, but it sure does save a lot of time and hassle by knowing ahead of time which person is likely to be more of a challenge than reward.

Solar Eclipse February 15 2018

January 28th, 2018
Share Button

A solar eclipse occurs February 15, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 1:05 p.m. PST, 27 degrees 07 minutes Aquarius.

Overall, eclipses symbolize challenges instead of rewards, but solar eclipses are typically easier than lunar eclipses. Generally, lunar eclipses symbolize endings, and solar eclipses beginnings.

Although I recommend a comprehensive approach using pattern recognition involving multiple indicators, you can still get an idea of the symbolism of astrology by tracking single factors such as eclipses.

The exceptions to my recommendation are those rare, exceedingly psychic individuals who can use single factors as touchstones for consistently accurate divination.

As outlined in this blog post, a lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018.

How the symbolism relates to you depends on the patterns in your comprehensive astrology charts. For some this eclipse will be inconsequential, but for others the eclipse and the associated patterns represent key life events and circumstances.

Approximately three weeks before and a few days after an eclipse, perception tends to be distorted. Basically, things that seem to be okay may not be, and other things are better than they appear. Questionable decisions are a hallmark of eclipses. My findings show this applies to everyone, some more so than others.

Be careful with significant investments, legal contracts, and other high-risk endeavors, including high-risk physical activities.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the February 15, 2018 solar eclipse, along with other basic astrology events.

Lunar Eclipse January 31 2018

A lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 5:26 a.m. PST, 11 degrees 37 minutes Leo.

This lunar eclipse occurs in about two weeks, but three to four weeks before an eclipse and a few days after is roughly the window of time that eclipse-related issues manifest. Thus, avoid excessive risk during this period.

See this blog post for more information about limiting your overall risk during an eclipse.

Judgment tends to be faulty during eclipse periods, particularly during lunar eclipses. Be more cautious with important decisions, avoid hasty decisions and reckless behavior, and remember that things may not be quite as they appear.

A Common Error That Kills Objectivity

December 3rd, 2017
Share Button

Bias is one of the most common problematic personality traits.

The inability to make impartial decisions blocks professional success, and destroys personal relationships. It ranks right up there with other atrocious red-flag personality traits such as indecisiveness, dishonesty, vanity, volatile emotions, lack of analytical ability, and lack of discretion.

Bias comes in many forms, and almost everyone possesses some degree of intolerance, but few seem to recognize one of the key factors in the problem with partiality: the subconscious mind.

Being ignorant of or refusing to acknowledge the power of your subconscious mind as it relates to objectivity is one of the most common errors that kill fair-mindedness.

Your perception of others is obscured by your subconscious fears and defenses. The stronger your unconscious fears and defenses, the more likely you are to misread someone upon first meeting, and the longer it will take you to perceive clearly the person’s authentic character, including strengths and challenges.

Examples of subconscious fears include fear of success, fear of abandonment, fear of losing control, fear of failure, perfectionism, conflict avoidance, and timidity. Examples of subconscious defense mechanisms include defiance, excessive secretiveness, domineering behavior, evasiveness, and self-deception.

Aside from distinguishing indisputable facts, no matter how keen your rapid cognitive function, you are likely to see the person as you are, not as they are. Prejudice (almost nobody is exempt), in varying degrees, is a ubiquitous subconscious fear, no matter what a person tells you otherwise. The truth is, most people simply aren’t familiar with the innate fears and defenses hidden in their subconscious mind, which distort their judgment.

Again, everyone is capable of exhibiting bias to some degree, but a severely prejudiced person can be a significant problem in your personal or professional life. Yet troublesome characteristics on the other side of the spectrum, such as lacking a sense of discernment, excessive naiveté, and gullibility can be equally harmful.

One way to get an idea about the level of innate bias a person may have is to ask his or her opinion about a well-known celebrity or politician. Even better, focus on specific personality traits; ask the person if he or she thinks the celebrity is untrustworthy, for example, if you suspect your new acquaintance may be. Those who lack self-awareness tend to project their flaws onto others. Just keep in mind that being objective about the facts, such as someone already having admitted to wrongdoing, or having been found overwhelmingly guilty in a court of law, is a different matter.

Always keeping in mind the potent influence of your subconscious mind goes a long way in dealing with strife and other interpersonal issues in everyday life.

Besides spending years getting to know someone, a way to uncover authentic personality, beyond the persona, is conventional security investigations (e.g., hiring a private detective). Unconventional security investigations, including those I offer, involving handwriting analysis, are a reliable alternative.

Common Personality Traits That Kill Relationships

November 5th, 2017
Share Button

Everyone has his or her own unique personality talents and flaws. My findings show the primary characteristics are inborn.

It’s unfortunate that unconventional appraisal methods aren’t universally part of every young person’s schooling to discover and understand his or her key strengths and weaknesses.

Currently, everyone must discover his or her own personality through trial and error, or through conventional evaluation methods, which typically fail to uncover the authentic personality.

Below I list typical relationship personality red flag traits that wreck personal and professional relationships. I readily identify all subconscious personality traits listed below in my exclusive analyses.

Lack of a reasonable sense of discernment and critical analysis skills translates into the inability to identify and understand personality and relationship issues, and possibly naiveté and gullibility. Combine it with lack of objectivity and the person is likely to avoid taking responsibility for his or her actions. Dishonesty also complicates matters.

Emotional immaturity and, or volatility shows a lack of emotional development and security. He or she will act on emotions (instead of reason), to his or her detriment.

Impulsiveness, lack of control over urges, and recklessness yield poor decision-making, among other challenges.

Self-esteem and ego strength relates to the amount of self-approval and the ability to cope with rejection. Vanity, arrogance, and narcissism are signs of an unhealthy ego. A “big ego” is actually a weak ego.

Conflict avoidance results from a fear of friction in relationships and a fear of not being liked. It’s due to any number of subconscious defense mechanisms such as disassociation, evasiveness, rationalization, secrecy, self-deceit, and vanity.

Suspiciousness, or a fear of trusting people, along with withdrawal or emotionally drawing back, makes relationships an uphill battle.

Other common relationship red flag traits include fear of intimacy, self-consciousness, and fear of sex (or excessive interest in sex).

Personality challenges are more easily recognized under less than ideal circumstances, such as when the person is under a lot of pressure. You’ll only see the persona until something triggers the subconscious fears and defenses.

Knowing a person’s authentic personality gives you understanding, which can ease conflict. It can also greatly limit your overall level of risk.
