Your Name is Not An Accident! Your name is your true
vibration, the melody of your soul as it passes through
that door in time and entered this world. Your name
represents the inheritance of your personal history
up to the moment of your birth. Whatever that history
is, it has shaped you into what you are. There is much
speculation throughout history of reincarnation and
the transmigration of souls, but whatever the actual
truth may be, you entered this life as a unique entity
with shape and form that was the result of some kind
of evolution. That is you. Many people argue that they
were named by their parents, and that their names are
arbitrarily chosen for them. But I believe that our
parents chose names for us by subconsciously picking
up on our vibration, and then naming us accordingly.
They gave sound to the vibration that they recognized
as us. Misspellings or last-minute changes of mind are
part of the fine-tuning process the result of which
is that you receive the name most fitting to you. You
may have noticed that a name very often fits the person
perfectly, sometimes even in humorous ways. Not only
is your name an exact musical vibration of you in your
current state, it also represents all the accumulated
knowledge and experience of your evolutionary inheritance.
All things begin in the vibrational world. Your name
is an outward sound, or a melody, that radiates from
your soul. Numerology is the method of unveiling the
hidden information in your name. Now let's take a close
look at your name by examining the Expression Number,
the Minor Expression number, the Heart's Desire number,
the Minor Heart's Desire number, the Personality number,
and the Minor Personality Number.
The Expression Number:
Your Expression number reveals your physical and mental
constitution, the orientation or goal of your life.
Some numerologists refer to this number as the Destiny,
because it represents a lifelong target at which you
are aiming. You work at fulfilling this potential every
day of your life. Thus, the Expression number reveals
your inner goal, the person you aim to be.
Your Expression number also
reveals your talents, abilities, characteristics, and
shortcomings. The extent to which you learn to use these
abilities and to tap into your inner potential defines
who you are. To the numerologist, your individual talents
and characteristics are represented by each letter in
your name, and its corresponding number.
Like a mosaic, these combine
to form a totality, a picture
that reveals the real you. Your name at birth can be
seen as a blueprint of your potential. The key word
here is potential.
The expression number is
derived from your full name at birth, meaning your first,
middle (if you have one), and last names. Typically,
it is the name that appears on your birth certificate.
Occasionally, there are questions about exactly what
name is used. A few examples, and how to decide which
name to might get listed later in a different thread.
Those examples would also apply to the Heart's Desire
and other Core numbers.
When clerical errors occur
on a birth certificate, if the mistake is accepted by
the parents, and from that point onward is the acknowledged
name, this name on the birth certificate, with the spelling
error, is used to find the Expression number.
If the mistake is not accepted
by your parents, and you grow up using the original
name given by your parents ~ ignoring the clerical error
~ that original name is used to provide the Expression
number, as opposed to the name with the error that appears
on the birth certificate.
If you have been adopted,
and you have been provided a new name by your adopting
parents, use the original name given to you before the
If you were adopted, and
never knew your original name, use the name that is
the earliest remembered name. However, without the original
name, a complete chart may not be possible.
Even if you have never used
your original name, that name still represents the blueprint
of your life, and is used to find the Expression number.
Names given at confirmation,
by a spiritual teacher or guru, or at some other religious
ceremony, are not used for the Expression number, but
can be used additionally to give further insight into
the personality. That would be a "Minor Expression,
Minor heart's Desire, and Minor Personality number as
If you received more than
one middle (or last) name at birth, use all the middle
(or last) names.
If there is a junior, senior,
the third, etcetera, in your name, always discard such
additions. They are too general to bear any significance
to your name.
How to Find Your Expression
The individual letters of your name are all assigned
a special single digit number, as was explained in the
Numerology/Numbers of Destiny article in
our Divination section.
Each letter is given a number
according to the place it falls in the alphabet: The
letter A, being the first letter, is 1; B is a 2; C
is a 3; and so on. Letters that come after I (the ninth
letter of the alphabet) and have double-digits, such
as M, the thirteenth letter, are reduced to single digit
numbers in the same way as described in that article;
that is, by adding the two digits. The letter M, therefore,
becomes a 4.
For the numerical value of
each letter, see the listing below.
||A, J, S
||B, K, T
||C, L, U
||D, M, V
||E, N, W
||F, O, X
||G, P, Y
||H, Q, Z
To find your Expression number,
write out your full name, and place the appropriate
numerical value beneath each letter. Add the numbers
of your first name, and then reduce it to a single digit.
Do the same for your second and last names. Now, add
the three single-digit numbers and reduce them to another
single-digit number to find your Expression number.
If at any time you encounter a Master number, 11 or
22, do not reduce it to a single-digit number.
|T h o m
||2 8 6 4
1 1 ~> Total = 22
|J o h n
||1 6 8 5
~> 20 = 2
|H a n c
o c k
||8 1 5 3
6 3 2 ~> 28; 2 + 8 = 10 = 1
The numbers in Thomas total
22 (Master numbers are not reduced!). The numbers in
John total 2. The numbers in Hancock total 1. His full
name at birth total 25. John Hancock's Expression number
is 2 + 5 = 7
After doing the same simple
addition, you can find the text that provides the information
related to your own Expression number.
Your Expression number is
you. Your full name at birth contains all aspects of
your personality, down to your deepest desires, and
your most hidden fears. Your full name also shows your
true potential, including those talents and abilities
you have not yet had the opportunity to use, and may
not even be aware of. You might say that your Life Path
number, and all the other numbers based on your date
of birth, represent the path you will walk during this
life. However, your Expression number, more than any
other number in your chart, shows the person walking
this path. In addition, the Expression number is the
number that indicates your career options more than
any other number in your chart.
You are a natural
leader, independent, and individualistic. You
are extremely ambitious, original, and courageous.
You employ new and unproven methods. You are
an explorer and an innovator. Openness to too
many peripheral influences limits and frustrates
you. You are self-reliant, confident, and energetic.
You possess executive abilities, and are most
successful at owning or independently managing
You need the freedom
to make your own decisions based on your own
ideas. You can be an astute politician. You
also possess the ability to influence the opinions
of your milieu. The number 1 symbolizes the
front-runner, pioneer, warrior, risk-taker,
and daredevil. Generals, top politicians, successful
business people, self-made millionaires, religious
leaders, inventors, activists, and avant-garde
artists are often born with a 1 Expression.
Strength and perseverance
are central to your success. You must be willing
to travel the frontiers of life, away from the
beaten path. You possess a great reserve of
willpower that must be directed at your goals.
You do not give up, but relentlessly pursue
your aims. You are quite opinionated. People
tend to be inspired or repelled by your strong
personality. You have great power of concentration
and the ability to visualize your goals, thus
making them more attainable. You stand up for
your convictions, and hold your ground. All
of these abilities, enhance your chances of
success in life. There is a tendency to be self-centered.
You can be domineering
and, in the extreme, a bully. You can be highly
critical of others, complaining that people
lack the industry or determination you possess.
But this lack of understanding can alienate
friends and family members from you. You must
learn to control this tendency if you are to
maintain harmony in relationships. Once you
are convinced of the inherent correctness of
your ideas, you stubbornly, and sometimes rigidly,
defend and propogate them. Avoid obstinacy and
antagonism. You must cultivate balance, compassion,
You easily assume
the role of protector. You spring into action
when leadership is needed. Pride can be your
downfall. You so powerfully identify with your
goals and ambitions that you sometimes refuse
to see a potential flaw or weakness in your
well-laid plans. You possess strength and determination,
which, when applied to any endeavor you are
committed to, will lead you to great success
You have a great
talent for working with others; you possess
tact and refinement. You have a highly veloped
intuition, which provides you with insight into
personalities and situations. Therefore, you
act with tact and subtle persuasion. You possess
a kind of radar, avoiding the landmines within
another's personality, yet bringing out goodwill.
These abilities make you the perfect diplomat.
Your abilities are better expressed while working
with others than by working alone. In the same
way, you perform better in partnership than
in a leadership role.
People with the 2
Expression are often found in politics, medicine,
learning institutions, laboratories, secretarial
services, multilevel marketing, and entertainment
(although rarely seeking the limelight). You
seek balance and peace in all relationships
and situations. The key to your personality
is sensitivity, but there are two sides to the
coin: You have the ability to perceive the thoughts
and emotions of others, and can work gently
with others for a mutually shared goal. This
makes you a great asset in any group endeavor.
However, your sensitivity makes you vulnerable.
You can be thrown off balance by an unkind word,
a conflict, or by hostile conditions at work.
You are far more upset by these conditions than
people without your sensitivity. While others
appear to be enduring troubled times with a
modicum of turmoil, you suffer the turbulence
of life as if your very survival were at stake.
In difficulties, you tend to persevere and steadily
erode the resistance. You are like a gentle
wind that shapes a rock.
You are friendly
and open-minded. You are a great support person,
pulling the best out of those around you. You
are the power behind the throne. You are indispensable
to the leadership of another, providing insight
and advice that are essential. Yet, despite
the invaluable service you provide, you often
do not get the credit and recognition you deserve,
which can be frustrating. Your natural modesty,
and the enjoyment you get from being an important
asset, are usually satisfaction enough for you.
Close relationships are essential to your happiness.
When single, you dream of finding your soul
mate. When married, you are concerned with your
spouse's needs, emotions, and thoughts. You
are an outstanding marriage partner, giving,
thoughtful, and conscious of meeting the needs
of your loved one. You provide great support
for your spouse's career. You are a passionate
lover. Parenthood is not an easy role for you,
probably because you lack the will to enforce
discipline, and need a tranquil, delicate, and
harmonious environment. You are blessed with
a high degree of musical talent. You have a
good sense of rhythm and harmony. You are also
a good counselor with an inborn talent for psychology
and finely tuned intuition.
are optimistic, inspiring, outgoing, and expressive.
People see you as cheerful, positive, and charming;
your personality has a certain bounce and verve
that so powerfully affects others that you can
inspire people without effort. All of this upward
energy is a symptom of your tremendous creativity.
Your verbal skills may well lead you into the
fields of writing, comedy, theater, and music.
Yours is the number of self-expression, rich in
imagination and spirit. But you have to be careful
not to scatter your talents. Your bane is that
you often lack discipline and order in your life.
Avoid becoming a happy-go-lucky spendthrift, escaping
responsibility and commitment. You must learn
to concentrate and focus. These are the keys to
your success. You have great potential in the
arts and areas that require creative solutions
to problems. You are able to perform leaps of
imagination, providing unconventional ideas as
if they have suddenly descended from above. Hard
work and focus, however, are the foundation for
a successful future. Though you possess great
verbal skills, your mind tends to see life in
pictures rather than in words. Yet, you have the
ability to think abstractly. Creativity is a sensitive
faculty that is often suppressed in childhood.
If you lack the confidence to pursue your ideas,
you may divert your abilities into a scattering
of trivial pursuits.
To overcome this
problem, you must make a choice. You have to
limit your field of vision and the number of
activities you engage in, and bundle your energies
into a single thrust. Focus your life; choose
the area that you love the most, and commit.
There, you will find success, and a great deal
of happiness. Love, romance, and money are within
your reach. You are aided by your friends and
admirers. Often people appear out of nowhere
to help you in key situations. You have to learn
to accept the involvement of others in your
You are not a loner,
nor are you particularly independent.
You are social; you
need an audience and the support of others to
fully realize your abilities. On the down side,
you can be superficial, moody, and intolerant.
You are emotional and sensitive, sometimes presuming
criticism where none was intended. You can also
be jealous and gossipy. Beware of becoming cynical
and sarcastic. These traits can suppress your
natural creativity. Be goal-oriented. This is
a practical, step-by-step approach to your larger
ambitions. You possess the natural abilities
to attain a high degree of excellence.
You are the bedrock
of society, the foundation of any enterprise.
You are an organizer and manager. Your approach
to life and problems is methodical and systematic.
You are a builder and a doer. You turn dreams
into reality. You possess a highly developed
sense of structure. You enjoy management systems,
and can carry out your well-laid plans.
You are not the type
to embark on any trip without a map. You take
your obligations and those of your family quite
seriously. As a result, you are reliable and
responsible. You enjoy seeing a project through
from start to finish, but can become too narrowly
focused. You put your nose to the grindstone,
and have a tendency to become a workaholic.
You are driven by a contempt for all that is
unstable, insecure, and unpredictable. You distrust
the unconventional, preferring instead the tried-and-true.
But this can make your endeavors move slowly
and cause you much frustration, especially with
the apparent limitations of your resources.
At the same time, concern for these limitations
causes you to be careful and cautious, shutting
you out from possible shortcuts and creative
solutions provided by more daring people around
you. It is important that you recognize restrictions
for what they are: guiding forces that are testing
you and directing you toward your goals. Your
challenge is to be more imaginative, and to
attract more creative people into your life
who can advise and inspire you. In relationships,
you need to be somewhat moralistic.
You are extremely
honest and sincere. You have integrity and are
trustworthy, but you can also be rigid and stubborn.
Don't let your strong likes and dislikes overrule
your common sense and compassion. Be more understanding
of others' shortcomings. Because you tend to
focus on details you can fall into a rut and
become a little dull and overly serious. Often,
people born with the 4 Expression need to lighten
up and have more fun. In your conservative and
careful way, you are good with money. You are
very conscious of the balance between income
and expenditures. You can limit your expenditures;
saving money is important to you. You are a
surprisingly good parent, and love to be involved
with children. Somehow, you relate a little
more than others to the innocence of children,
perhaps seeing a good deal of yourself in them.
You, too, are idealistic and respect the simplicity
of children. Many accountants, bookkeepers,
government officials, managers, and lawyers
are born under the 4 Expression. You can be
attracted to the arts and music, but will likely
bring your love of structure and order to any
artistic field. Classical music and opera are
particularly appealing and inspiring for you.
You have a keen eye for detail. You have great
stamina, and can work conscientiously and persistently
toward your goals. This eventually brings you
success and standing in your community.
You are a free spirit.
You love change, adventure, and excitement.
You love your freedom. Like a bird that needs
its wings to live, you cannot exist without
it.You need it for your very survival. By using
freedom properly, you are able to explore and
develop all of your varied talents. You will
meet many types of people, and you will travel
great distances. Freedom is the atmosphere necessary
for you to bring forth your many talents. You
are capable of doing almost anything, and probably
of doing it quite well. Only by avoiding the
imprisonment of illusory security are you able
to bring forth your abilities. You are unusually
adaptable. In fact, change is a blessing for
you. In the same way, you need challenge and
variety. You hate the routine of life; being
stuck is a catastrophe for you. You become miserable
when you are held back or held down. The taste,
texture, and color of life have an overpowering
allure for you. From childhood, you dream of
seeing foreign lands, experiencing the sensual
and the exotic. You want to try everything at
least once in life. All of life is a playground
for your senses. But this can get you into trouble.
You may fail to respect your natural limits,
either biologically or socially. Any sort of
boundary is an anatherma to you, which can blind
you to your natural limits, and may cause you
to overindulge your desire for food, sweets,
alcohol, sex, and drugs.
You are gifted in
your ability to communicate. Your facility with
words is almost limitless. You can be a salesperson,
politician, lawyer, public relations person,
or minister. You also possess the talent to
share and advance new ideas. You are talented
with your hands. You love the new and untried.
Your field is the frontier. You are a bit of
a gambler, and often play for very big stakes.
All of this combines to give you a youthful
enthusiasm, which others find infectious and
attractive. You like to work with others, but
need to perform your task unencumbered by the
restraints of others.
You are a clever
and quick thinker, but your thought processes,
like your life in general, can be unorganized
and scattered. You must stay grounded and focused
if you want to be successful. You fall in and
out of love frequently, especially early in
life. You are naturally sensual and commonly
have a strong sex drive. These characteristics
usually make for a lively and exciting love
life, but you must guard against shallow feelings
in relationships. Your challenge is to develop
mature and lasting relationships. Self-discipline
and setting healthy limits is the key to your
success in virtually every area of your life.
Ironically, you will find that as you learn
to set appropriate limits for yourself, you
will develop more self-mastery, and you will
realize even greater freedom. This is especially
true when it comes to finishing what you start.
Your tendency is to give up once you have a
project or ob under control; you grow bored
quickly. You start to fantasize about a new
challenge, or the rewards of your great accomplishment,
long before the work is finished. The 5 Expression
desires the whole world. You are aware that
you have many talents that can bring much success.
But that success depends on your willingness
to choose certain areas to concentrate on, and
to bring them to perfection.
You are a loving
and caring individual with a tendency to put
the needs of others before those of yourself.
You are responsible and trustworthy, with a
high regard for justice and honesty. Duty will
follow you all your life, and sometimes it will
feel a little too much of a burden. You are
artistic. Harmony and beauty are high on your
list of priorities. YOu have a musical talent,
but the creative talents of 6 are sometimes
left undeveloped or suppressed as a result of
your tendency to sacrifice your time and pleasure
to the service of others. You are highly creative
in all areas of life, particularly in the visual.
You are also a talented business person, and
can work methodically toward the realization
of your goals. You have a natural gift with
flowers, gardens, and animals. Your love of
children has caused numerologists to dub you
the cosmic mother or cosmic father. The very
shape of a 6 resembles and symbolizes pregnant
with love. You are a natural counselor and healer,
but you must be careful not to interfere with
the freedom of others.
You are recognized
as an idealist, mainly regarding marriage, friendship,
and humanity. The is the most balanced of all
numbers, but also contains within itself the
greatest paradoxes. It is as if opposite tendencies
were tenuously poised. Because of its gift for
harmonizing these opposites, you are uniquely
qualified to handle and to integrate contradictions
within yourself. It is for this reason that
6s so frequently find themselves in the role
of healers or counselors, creating a peace between
opposing points of view, or internal conflicts
within the self. While you can be very idealistic,
there may also be a temptation to acquire beautiful
objects by improper means. You must also guard
against other meddlesome behavior and domestic
tyranny, or always having to have your own way
in a family dispute. Conversely, you have it
within yourself to understand another person's
dilemma, and to come up with a creative solution.
Your natural ability to give comfort and warmth
can sooth over hurt feelings like a healing
You attract love
and appreciation, and rightly so, because you
give the same in return. You make an outstanding
teacher (especially with young children or special
education students), healer, counselor, social
worker, psychologist, artist, designer, gardener,
florist, and farmer. You can be successful in
business, particularly one that involves dealing
You are gifted with
an analytical mind and an enormous appetite
for the answers to life's hidden questions.
You have a strong interest in exploring scientific
matters, philosophy, and even mysticism. You
possess clarity and persistence in your search
for truth. You can be a great researcher, educator,
and philosopher. You are driven by a desire
for knowledge and truth. You must learn to discriminate
between illusion and reality, but you are well-equipped
for this task. Your fine mind offers you insight
into the veiled mysteries of life. You also
possess a considerable amount of perspective.
Somewhere inside you, you are aware of a peaceful
place that you call upon during difficult times.
You need time to
be by yourself. Too much social interaction
causes you stress. You need your privacy and
a place that can be shut off from the hustle
and bustle of life. You tend to keep your thoughts
to yourself, and be secretive. Unless your 7
Expression is balanced by extrovert characteristics
(usually revealed by the numbers 1, 3, 5, and
8), your introversion may pull you deeply within
yourself, and even cut you off from others.
You have a strong dislike of the superficial
and mundane. You are often surprised by the
lack of understanding or depth of knowledge
of others, many of whom do not take the search
for knowledge as seriously as you do. This can
cause you to be critical of others, and even
cynical about life in general. The more cut
off from others you become, the more hidden
are your motives. Once you develop understanding
of people and life, your advice and counsel
will be sought by those around you who need
your wisdom. You love to specialize your knowledge
and to develop great depth within your field.
You are a perfectionist.
You should contemplate
your studies early in life, and not be driven
too hard by a desire to be successful. Let things
come at their own pace and be open to opportunity,
but remember that your rewards, satisfaction,
and contentment come from a higher source. A
7 can be distant and aloof. When dominated by
their darker characteristics, you can be unfaithful,
dishonest, and cruel. Contemplation, meditation,
and the softer, finer vibrations of life, can
restore your sense of harmony, and keep you
on the path to peace and balance. You have a
logical mind. Your analytical skills cause you
to approach a problem in a detached, surgical
kind of way. Researchers, analysts, investigators,
inventors, technicians, scholars, lawyers, bankers,
watchmakers, priests, philosophers, theologians
and administrators in some scientific or technical
fields are among the vocations 7s are drawn
have the power and potential to achieve great
things. It is both your challenge and your birthright
to gain dominion over a small part of the earth.
Whatever your enterprise, you strive to be the
best, and the most successful in your field. You
are highly competitive, and will not rest until
you are satisfied that you have bypassed the opposition.
You enjoy challenges and rivalry.
You are dynamic,
and have a talent for efficiency. You understand
the larger picture, see the broader challenges,
and know how to marshal your collective resources
to address problems. You delegate responsibility
well; it is best for you to leave many of the
details to others. You are a great leader of
people and an outstanding judge of character.
You are demanding of those who work for you,
often putting things in no uncertain terms:
Do it my way or don't do it at all! At the same
time, you don't hesitate to reward the faithful
and hardworking employee. You are not a particularly
tolerant leader; too much tolerance violates
your sense of efficiency. You go directly after
your goal with courage and tenacity.
You have a natural
understanding of money, authority, and power.
You are able to struggle consistently after
your goals. Eventually power falls to you. Within
you lies an innate balance between the higher
and the lower characteristics of man. Your challenge
in life is to balance your higher ideals, and
your understanding of the hard realities of
the earth. Much effort will have to be put out,
and many ups and downs experienced, before you
reach the level of success you desire. Life
will probably test you many times with obstacles
that seem insurmountable. But, in reality, these
are merely opportunities for you to learn how
to use power and authority in the face of difficulties,
and to find out just how much power lies within
you. It is crucial for your success that you
balance the material and the spiritual. You
have chosen a path that requires balance between
giving and taking, reward and punishment, action
and reaction. Despite the obstacles on your
path, you are a true survivor. When focused
exclusively on your desire for results and success,
you can become stubborn and intolerant; you
can be driven and overambitious, causing you
to be exacting and without perspective.
Be careful of your
alcohol consumption, a danger-zone for you.
You can be a social drinker, mixing business
with pleasure ~a hazardous cocktail. As an excellent
manager, organizer, and administrator, you have
talents in many careers, including entrepreneur,
executive, banker, broker, negotiator, gambler,
coach, collector, head of an institution, builder,
art dealer, manufacturer, promoter, military
officer, police detective, smuggler, engineer,
pilot, or sea captain. You have been entrusted
with special gifts, the use or abuse of which
has an immediate and often physical effect upon
you and those around you. Use these gifts for
the good of mankind, and accept your own good
fortune with gratitude. This is your rewarding
stage in your evolution. Yours is a lifetime
are the humanitarian. You are attracted to a cause
or movement whose purpose is to make a better
world. You are extremely idealistic, sometimes
to the point of being naive about people or methods.
You have great compassion, and seek to create
a more humane society. You are drawn to those
who suffer physically or at the hands of injustice.
You are the righter of wrongs. Your deepest intention
is to transform the world.
You are willing to
sacrifice in order to advance your cause. Indeed,
this seems to be a theme in your life. From
time to time, you find yourself involved in
a project whose very life depends upon your
willingness to sacrifice something that relates
directly to your ego. You are highly idealistic.
You are also a visionary with the ability to
influence and direct the masses. Deep inside,
you long for the love and approval of the many,
and you seek fame. Part of your hunger for fame
has to do with your need for validation; you
are your own harshest critic. You realize your
greatest satisfaction when you are involved
in some activity that directly benefits the
public good. Politics, law, protection of the
environment, teaching, and healing are areas
in which you would succeed.
You have a broad
view of humanity, and you are not shackled with
prejudice. You should have friends and associates
from all walks of life, all colors, and all
religious backgrounds. People fascinate and
enrich you. A wide diversity of people and experiences
stimulate and bring forth qualities within you
that would otherwise lay dormant.
You have an abundance
of artistic talent. Many with your Expression
number find themselves in the arts, especially
in literature, painting, and visual and performing
The number 9 indicates
the completion of a cycle or a block of learning.
The 9 Expression suggests that you have reached
the point at which a breakthrough can occur;
during this lifetime you can apply all that
you have learned along your evolutionary path
and complete a major stage in your development.
This is why many geniuses have the 9 Expression.
You have the ability to synthesize many diverse
bits of knowledge into a unified whole.
Your appearance is
important. You are keenly aware of how others
perceive you. As a result, they see you as a
person with a great deal of control. Conversely,
you are charismatic. Despite the cool and distant
personality you project, people are attracted
to you. You tend to express love somewhat impersonally.
You also tend to be preoccupied with your vision
or cause, and sometimes overlook the needs of
those closest to you. You need to be reminded
to give your love more personally and more openly.
Ironically, you are a very loving and sincere
person, but you often neglect to express what
you truly feel.
In the same way,
you can overlook your own needs. You can avoid
sharing your deeper feelings, creating a reservoir
of emotion. You tend to postpone your personal
satisfaction in favor of some larger work. Try
to be more spontaneous and courageous about
showing your real self, including your vulnerability.
Your basic belief in the goodness of humanity
is unshakeable. This causes you to encourage
the best in people, but occasionally makes you
vulnerable to being taken advantage of. You
are not a very good judge of character. The
surest way to personal satisfaction is for you
to become part of some larger social cause.
Your nature is to serve. You are happiest when
you feel you are helping to advance the human
