flowersDetermining compatibility between people, and understanding the level of compatibility between potential life partners or lovers, is perhaps one of the most useful—and ultimately accurate—applications of numerology.

The month, day and year of an individual’s birth can be added together and reduced to one number to identify that person’s ‘Life Path’ number—although please

Hilary ClintonHillary Clinton has finally declared her intention to run in the 2016 presidential election. The news in itself is no great surprise, but her method of declaring was unusual. 

After reading, online, that she had finally ended the suspense and decided to publicly declare, I clicked on the link and began to watch what I thought was a very long ad for an insurance or real estate company. The ad in question concerned people making a new start in life, and after what seemed like forever, at least to me, Hillary declared that she is declaring.

FamilyI wrote recently about how much I enjoy looking at compatibilities between couples. For me, that ranks about an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Analyzing the compatibility of children and parents, however, for me ranks a 10 out of 10. Even the briefest look at a child’s numerology chart in the course of a reading for a parent is fascinating and rewarding to me.

Couples readings can provide both partners with insight about the other--as well as themselvesI'm always surprised when people ask, sometimes rather tentatively, if I'm willing to do a couples reading. My answer is always a resounding YES!!

It isn't easy being a master number.

It is said those born with a master number life path have more difficult lives than the rest of us. However, as in the case of Kathy Griffin, who was born November 4, 1960, and who is a 22 life path under the influence of 4, there are also some perks.

One such perk is being able to speak your mind on neglected and important issues, and getting tons of applause and appreciation for stating what should be obvious.

patricia_arquettePatricia Arquette has, of course, been in the news recently for her Best Actress win at this year's Academy Awards, but has also been praised for speaking out on equality for women in the workplace and world, as she accepted her Oscar.

For me, it was both delightful and gratifying to see women like Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez also express their support, especially the usually-dignified Meryl, who whooped and hollered from the front row at Patricia's remarks.

Patricia Arquette's Numerological Cycle: The 9 Life Path

Patricia Arquette was born April 8, 1968. In numerology, this makes her a 9 Life Path person, under the influence of 8.

This year, Patricia is at the beginning of a new 9 year cycle. The cycle is officially 2/1: meaning that it's the second year of a nine-year cycle on the material plane, but the first year of a new chapter of her life on the emotional and spiritual plane.

If you have seen the movie Boyhood, it will be obvious that Ellar Coltrane (shown left, with Boyhood director Richard Linklater), the movie’s focal point, is not a usual child.

Although Ellar has been presented as ‘just a normal boy growing up in Texas’, it seemed to me while watching the film—and observing how he handles its success—that he is not that usual at all.

He did not, for example, opt out of the process of creating the movie when he became a teenager.
