I bought the book on a whim, knowing nothing about numerology and not being especially psychic. Soon I found myself doing startling accurate predictions for everyone in my workplace. I'm not sure if I just knew my coworkers that well (probably not because I was also accurately describing their kids whom I'd never met), or if I made good guesses, or what. But I can say that my numerological experiments were easy and a lot of fun because of this book.
Basically you need your subject's full name as printed on a birth certificate. (Each letter of the alphabet has a numeric value from 1 to 9, so the name C-A-R-O-L will add up to a different number than the name C-A-R-O-L-E; so even though a name sounds one way, you can't make an assumption that it follows the most common spelling.) You'll also need your subject's birth-date. Then you just do simple arithmetic (the book will show you the alphabet-to-number correspondence) until you end up with one number from 1 to 9 that describes a person's Life Path, Desity, Soul, Personality, and Maturity. You can stop there or venture into the more detailed readings shown in the advanced chapters where you map out yours or others' Major Cycles, Pinnacles and Challenges, and Karmic Lessons.
I predicted that one coworker's son would become his generation's Donald Trump or Bill Gates (he had the most amazing numerological profile: all 8s), so we'll see! In the meantime, I recommend this book. (As an aside, I got interested enough in numerology that I tried about six other books, many of which were equally comprehensive, but none were as user-friendly as this one.)
Now I feel I must acknowledge that there are other numerology systems out there and I quickly realized that I could wear myself out (let alone pull my hair out) if I looked into all the systems available and tried to find THE system. I have been completely satisfied with this book and the system it presents and thus far have felt it was accurate while being simple to learn. And incidently, these have corresponded nicely with the more difficult book of my mentor!
I would like to say how I really appreciated that for each category (Soul #, Destiny #, Maturity # etc) she gives a customized take on the numbers in that category so you aren't trying to fit the general meaning of a 6 into how that may apply to a Personality category. Very helpful!
Here you will find quick and easy guidance for the meaning of your name, married name, family name and a wealth of information about your birthdate. In addition you will find expert instruction on the predictive elements of numerology: your challenges, karmic lessons, achievements and each year's number. The format for The Complete Idiot's Guide to Numerology is designed to make the "how-to" aspect of numerology easy, fun and clear. More than once you will find yourself chuckling at the graphics, side bars and author comments. While written in this fun format, the reader can expect a thorough, well researched discussion of the subject.
Specifically, you will find an indepth look at the master numbers 11, 22, and 33, as well as karmic numbers 13,14,16,and 19. Of particular interest is the chapter on "Your Soul Number:The Heart of the Matter," which reveals your heart's desire for this lifetime(and your mate's) with a clear explaination of each number. The chapter on "Your Personal Year: For Every Time There Is A Season," gives an uncannily accurate explanation of the energy for each year. Check it out! Also, check out "Your Maturity Number:Your Mid-Life Message," for a heads up on the number and direction of the second half of your life.
This book is designed to open the reader to a new awareness about the power of numbers and how they influence our lives. It's easy to follow and user friendly. Enjoy the book!

This didn't really offer any of the history behind the numerology. For instance different cultures have different number charts, this book just picks one and runs with it. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Skyler F Wolf
