Generally I like to start out with a disclaimer. I am an atheist witch.  I look for the connection between magic and science without the need for a deity. I receive no compensation for these reviews and all my links are standard Amazon links and not affiliate links. I am a practicing photo reader and have spent the last 13 years honing my craft.  I offer personal readings by request and have a strong online history that boasts nearly 400,000 views.

As with my other reviews I'll start with the physical book.  This is an over-sized softcover book.  It makes it a bit cumbersome to carry around with you for a read on the go or just to hold while you're having coffee.  This one in my opinion requires both hands and a flat surface for doing the math.  The cover is smooth and the pages glossy.  The font however, is tiny. I had a bit of a challenge, with my 50 year old eyes to read the type.  It wasn't impossible but I did notice the size difference from the other books I have reviewed.   This book does contain an index and offers very specific instructions on working with numerology through out each of the chapters.

As I have stressed on previous reviews on numerology, this is not my medium for divination. I work specifically with photo/aura/people readings and fire scrying. I have found that the process for working with divination should be based on tangible evidence. With each approach to numerology, whether it be working with the birth day or with the numbers in someone's name, I struggle to see how this can be anything other than random behaviors.  I like the zodiac, however we have to see that there is a large amount of generalizations that could very well fit any persons personality.  But I digress.

Getting back to this specific book I believe the author provides clear and concise instruction on how to come up with my birth code.  The book then offers direction on working with this birth code for manifesting fulfillment and abundance throughout my life.

Chapters 1 and 2 review the instructions for location your Day Birth Number, Your Life Purpose Number and your Destiny Number. To me this is where it gets a bit tricky.  Unless your parents were into numerology, no effort to understand the random nature of a name can begin to dictate how one's personality would be developed by their name or how their interactions with the world are impacted by the personal energy that is expelled through-out one's life.

My root number is 8.  The vibration on this number according to the author is leadership, strength, abundance, financial security and power. It says it governs entrepreneurship and the executive but 8's are also shy by nature. Quite and dedicated.  Two sides to the same coin, showing I can be yin or yang. As I continued through this chapter the majority of the numbers seemed to have this balance. Showing each has an ebb and flowing creating a true harmonic dynamic.  Now is this due to the numbers or are the numbers an indicator as to what a person can be, not what they necessarily already have become.  As a side note, I was pleased to see a chapter devoted to double digit numbers.  As someone not necessarily familiar with the dynamics of numerology, this part helped me get back to the root number.

Chapter 6 breaks down the letters in your name.  It provides an analysis on each letter as well as the number to which it associates.  I have a lots of R's in my name.  When looking at the section on the letter R I found references to power, wisdom and the re-purpose of knowledge.  Well that is certainly what I try to do with this blog.

The book continues with information on astrology numbers and even the number associate with something as seemingly mundane as your home address.  Each one broken down with detailed explanation on getting the number and fully understanding the meaning behind them.

Overall this is a great addition to your magical or divination library. While not as compact as I would like the information within is easy to digest and share. If you're looking for a gateway into understanding numerology, this book is a great start.
