In Numerology there are two families, family ‘odd’ 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and family ‘even’ 2, 4, 6, 8; here we are not referring to character but to the number itself.
The odd family have masculine energy and can be introvert in behaviour while the even family have a feminine energy and can be seen as extrovert.
The families then break out in groups, 1, 5, 7 are the numbers of intellect, 2, 4, 8 wear the business hat while 3, 6, 9 are the creatives.
The intellects 1, 5, and 7 are often well educated; you will often find them in their head, thinking, thinking, thinking… They enjoy travel and on the whole, have plenty of energy. At times too much so, they would benefit by being outdoors doing physical work or exercise in order to release the pressure valve on their thoughts freeing them up for a little more fun and enjoyment. Sometimes I think the book ‘Men Are From Mars, Women are From Venus’ is based around the 1, 5 and 7 energy as these numbers will always be offering you solutions and dissecting you without you even asking.
The creative 3, 6 and 9 are exactly that, creative. They are born entertainers, fun and artistic whether in painting, music, dance or acting. Often at an early age they can hit challenges within the family or get crushed by those that believe they are silly, scattered and not looking to grow up. This causes them to withdraw and shrink within suppressing their joys. From this space they look deeper into the realms of their imagination creating vast universes of escapism which they express through their form of art.
The business 2, 4 and 8 each have their own role in the business world. The 2 creates the relationships, the 4 establishes security and structure and the 8 understands financial freedom and elevates and motivates on a grand scale. These are relationship numbers, the supports often in the background, the 4 builds a team and the 8 nurtures their employees’ strengths. These numbers will do better if they let go of rigidity from time to time and free up from work to create leisure time; definitely the workaholics.
What number is your family and group?
How to calculate which family and group you are in:-
For this exercise we will take the date of birth down to a single digit. For the record though a double number like 11, 22 or 33 have an extra challenge as they are Master numbers but first they must overcome the single number.
Let’s take the date 17/5/1973
17 = 1 + 7 = 8
1973 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 3 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2
8 + 5 + 2 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6
The person with this date of birth has chosen the family ‘even’ and the creative group. Out of all the numbers the 6 is the most versatile and compatible number; while it has great creativity, it also is a super business number. The 6 generally runs family style businesses which makes sence as this number is the most natural parenting number.
