The paragraph is deleted. It's essentially repeating a portion of Step 3.
Your ability to give of yourself in social situations as well as with creative expression—most likely with words—will help in working toward an awareness of the constructive use of freedom.

There's no description included here. STEP 6
The 14/5 Karmic Debt (chart 7: the karmic debt) describes obstacles to be overcome. The existence of the Karmic Debt is explained in the paragraph below.
The major negative effects of the Debt are described in Step 8. The configuration of your chart indicates that you started out in life with some blockages which must be overcome before you can make the most of your strong positive potential. I can't tell whether you've already overcome the obstacles —some people manage it early in life, others spend a good number of years struggling with the impediments.
Since the Karmic Debt blocks the early growth of the potentials, the first two original paragraphs are deleted and replaced by new paragraphs reflecting the ultimate development of the potential rather than the immediate use of the energy at birth.
Remember that Harlan is in his forties at the time of the reading and has probably overcome some of the Karmic Debt obstructions. There's no way to read at precisely what age the various obstacles have been or will be constructively managed.
You arc probably versatile and active and can do almost anything with superior talent. Although you are interested in the new, different or progressive, you usually proceed here with awareness of your responsibilities and concern for others.
Here are some of the strong positive potentials you may be using now or can ultimately develop:
You'll be able to show your versatility and do almost anything with superior talent. Your interest in the new, different or progressive will be balanced with your awareness of your responsibilities and concern for others.
You are apt to be clever, with an inborn ability to accomplish what you want. You may be a quick thinker with a good ability to analyze, although that ability isn't always used to further your best interests.
You can learn to use your cleverness along with your inborn ability to accomplish what you want. You'll be able to use your quick thinking and good ability to analyze to further your best interests.
Delete the paragraph below and don't replace it with a new paragraph. The restlessness, etc. are considerably aggravated by the Karmic Debt, but the potentially erratic nature is fully covered in Step 8.
Although you sometimes have feelings of restlessness, impatience and the desire to try something new, these feelings arc tempered by your desire for balance in your life and those around you as well as your concern for giving to others.
The original paragraph below is deleted and replaced by a paragraph reflecting the erratic nature emphasized by the Karmic Debt.
Although you love change and enjoy travel and adventure, you are also capable of routine tasks demanded by your sense of responsibility. At times, these traits may produce feelings of COn-
flirt I 11C L.
Early in life, your ability to perform the routine tasks demanded by your sense of responsibility is likely to conflict with your free spirit. You'll have to learn how to deal more comfortably with this work.
The last three original paragraphs of this step describe traits which are likely to shine despite the handicap of the Debt, but the Debt is likely to create some problems so that the full brilliance of the described characteristics is somewhat restricted. The three replacement paragraphs clarify this state of affairs.
You are probably a delightful companion and can inspire and delight with your enthusiasm. You may occasionally have to temper your sudden impulses to change direction.
I'd expect that people's view of you as a delightful companion, bubbling over with new plans and enthusiasm, is one of your strongest potentials. You probably have to learn, though, to temper your sudden impulses to change direction.
You are enthusiastic. You tackle each new expc riencc with renewed enthusiasm.
Your enthusiasm, too, is a strong potential, but you probably have to work to curb the excessively whimsical, inconsistent or unpredictable outbursts of your spirit.
You tend to express eternal youth. The excitement of life keeps you young.
You tend to express eternal youth. Although the excitement of life keeps you young, you may have to learn to distinguish between youthfulness and childishness.
EXPRESS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE 12 BIRTHDAY.
Omit the phrase covering creative talent since this is well-described in Step 3.
Omit the last sentence. The scattering is considerably aggravated by the 14/5 Karmic Debt. The potentially erratic nature is fully explored in Step 8.
You are probably good with words. You work well using your original strongly creative approach.
You usually express the joy of living. People are likely to see you as cheerful, friendly and sociable, a good conversationalist, full of energy. You have a good mind. You're likely to be affectionate, loving and sensitive. Your strong feelings may cause occasional rapid ups and downs and you may tend to repress these feelings in business. You usually have many interests, so you're likely to scatter your energy.
DISCUSS THE NEGATIVE EXPRESSION OF THE 5 LIFE PATH.
This step describes the negative effect of the major negative modifier—the 14/5 Karmic Debt.
As if that wasn't bad enough, we have three additional negative modifiers in this step:
a. The 5 Life Path/5 sub-element aspect, discussed just below.
b. The four 1 's Intensity Point, discussed at the end of the step.
c. The 1 Challenge, also discussed at the end of the step.
These four negative modifiers are all grouped with the 5 energy, and this step is where all their negative potential is described. This is undoubtedly the most negative portion of the entire delineation. The impediments should be expressed as constructively as possible so as not to overwhelm the subject. Always indicate some positive action that will help alleviate the difficulties.
The 5 Life Path/5 sub-element aspect (chart 6: the aspects) describes two possible negative directions: (1) freedom used carelessly, or (2) fear of freedom. The first possibility, similar to part of the 14/5 Karmic Debt, is discussed later in this step. The second possibility occurs infrequently, but should be mentioned.
The original first paragraph of this step describes this fear of freedom and the added paragraph comments on its rarity.
When you are hesitant about using your freedom, it may seem easier to retreat into a safe and stable situation. When you do this, the changes and uncertainty will-still be there, but you'll probably have difficulty dealing with them.
There's not too much chance that you'll be afraid of freedom and retreat like this. If you do, though, you certainly won't be learning how to overcome the obstructions.
There's a chance that you'll be so exhilarated with the opportuntics before you, that you'll jump from thing to thing with maddening speed, lost in overindulgence or erratic behavior. This is apt to bring much frustration.
. . . and replaced with four paragraphs describing the negative effect of the 14/5 Karmic Debt (chart 7: the karmic debt). Note that the problems covered in the first two paragraphs are the same problems that result from the 5-5 aspect.
You're likely, particularly in your early years, to go from activity to activity with maddening speed, changing direction at the drop of a hat. At the least, your actions will tend toward the erratic. You can't move ahead constructively until you've learned to tone down this side of your nature-Jumping around, with little sense of accomplishment or accountability, works against you.
Your tendency to overindulgence in eating, sensuality, liquor or drugs also gets in the way of forward progress. Learn to curb your appetite for excessive physical stimulation.
You must learn the important lesson of change: to begin to nurture an interest or relation, to experience it in full bloom, to detach from it when it is completed. This is likely to be a difficult lesson. Instead of appreciating the beauties which enter (and leave) your life, you may be beset with disappointment at losses which are either beyond your control or caused by your lack of awareness.
You can approach your positive potential when you overcome these obstacles and, also, learn to profit from your experience instead of repeating mistakes. Until you shift to a positive direction, you are likely to meet delays or losses.
The original paragraph below is deleted . . .
These negative expressions are unproductive. They should be avoided in order to proceed constructively with your development.
. . . and replaced with this paragraph explaining why the subject faces so many handicaps.
Your problems with freedom and overindulgence are payments in this life to balance a Karmic Debt developed from a misuse of freedom in a previous life.
These new paragraphs below complete Step 8. They cover a combined description of the four Is Intensity Point (chart 8: the intensity table) and the 1 Challenge (chart 9: the challenge/the growth number).
There are some problem areas not related to the Karmic Debt.
A part of you tends to be self-centered with strong interests that must be satisfied. This self-centered part tends to control and dominate, but the domination usually offends others.
In your early years, you may have felt dominated by people with strong influence, probably parents or others on whom you were dependent. You may have felt that your desires weren't being met, your needs opposed. To feel less restricted, you may have tried to please everyone, but you're not likely to have found much satisfaction in that endeavor. You probably ended up displeased yourself as well as confused and resentful-
Using the courage of your convictions in taking care of your own needs should have helped. You probably have to remain watchful to protect yourself from domination, but dominating others is certainly not the answer.
You can exhibit much courage and independent feelings, often in the face of great difficulties, but your potential to use your original ideas and leadership abilities for positive ends may be stifled by your self-centered lack of awareness.
Step 8 is undoubtedly the most complex part of the delineation.
Be sure you understand the derivation of all the material.
With the completion of Step 8, we've completed the portion of the reading devoted to the 5 Life Path and its related energies.
Now, we move on to the 6 Expression and its related potential.
There are five modifiers related to the 6 Expression. The 3,6,9 group description can be omitted since the description would only repeat information already covered in Step 3. The remaining modifiers are either neutral or add difficulties along with the energy to resolve the problems—a far cry from the deep negativity of Step 8.
EXPRESS THE ABILITIES OF THE 6 EXPRESSION.
Add a new portion at the beginning of the original paragraph as a transition from the 5 Life Path to the 6 Expression description.
Along with the part of you that's a free spirit, there's another completely different side of you
— the you are probably a responsible, helpful and conscientious person. You have the ability to rectify and balance inharmonious situations and you would be available to give help and comfort to those in need. You would work well where the care of the old, young or sick are involved. You probably show concern for the betterment of the community. You are apt to possess creative and artistic talents.
■Delete the last sentence above. It's similar to Step 3. The next original paragraph remains unchanged.
It's possible that you're not using or developing all of these capabilities at this time. Some of your talents may have been used in the earlier part of your life and some may still be latent. Be aware of your capabilities, so that you can make use of them at appropriate times.
EXPRESS THE HARMONY OR DISCORD OF THE 5 LIFE
PATH/6 EXPRESSION ASPECT.
You are probably exhilarated by all the exciting opportunities and adventures so often present in your life. It may be difficult, at times, to give up this excitement to satisfy your responsibilities. There may even be times when you want to shirk these responsibilities or give them up altogether to enjoy the excitement of freedom.
Ignoring your responsibilities will probably not be very satisfying for you. You have to find some way to satisfy the adventurous side of your nature and, at the same time, enjoy the pleasures you receive when you express the responsible, conscientious side. You may find that an out-of-the-ordinary job may be.heJpiuf in balancing the quiet stability you may desire in a close family. Or, you might plan exciting trips or follow some unusual avocations to offset the solid, respectable job which gives you satisfaction.
EXPRESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE 5 LIFE PATH/6
You have the potential to take advantage of the opportunities presented with relative ease, to make the most of the experiences which come your way. Your natural abilities will probably find ample field for expression. The environment will allow your talents to be displayed and appreciated. As your capabilities find the opportunities to expand to meet their potential, your development will progress in a manner which may bring you much satisfaction.

There's no description included here. STEP 13
The four modifiers related to the 6 Expression are all included in this step. Their effect is to significantly increase Hal's capabilities beyond what was apparent in the description of the core alone.
When you are involved closely with people, you are probably most loving, friendly and appreciative of others, as well as very sympathetic, kind, generous and understanding. There may be times, though, when you prefer not to be involved at all.
. . . enhanced by some of the characteristics described by the 2 Karmic Lesson (chart 8: the intensity table) . . .
You're likely to find yourself in situations where a sensitive nature, along with a diplomatic manner are imperative for positive development. You were probably born with an innate ability to express these traits.
. . . and with Hal's sensitivity highlighted, because of the 2 Maturity Number (chart 10: the maturity number).
Now that you're in your forties, you may want to reevaluate the satisfactions you've derived from your sensitivity. Have you developed so that your strong sensitivity can be comfortably used? Have you learned how to say and do what you need without feeling your sensitivity compromised? Do shyness or uncertainty block you from a full expression of your sensitivity?
At this time in your life, you may want to revise some of your attitudes and actions in order to better express your sensitivity and to better receive others' friendship and affection as a reward for that expression.
Although you may well be involved in domestic activities, you may feel the pressures of these responsibilities conflicting with your own need for individuality. The resolution of this conflict (or the lack of resolution) will determine how good a husband and parent you are.
. . . enhanced by the characteristics described by the 6 Modified Karmic Lesson (chart 8: the intensity table,).
You'll be capable of balancing, adjusting, harmonizing, serving others, and will show these traits strongly in marriage and parenting situations where these abilities are likely to be necessary to keep affairs running smoothly. You're likely to have much responsibility to carry, but you're willing and able to carry it. Family and friends will depend on you for support, and you'll be there when needed.
This is a good place for a brief description of the 6 Secret Self.
You probably have a dream of being part of a loving family—an adoring wife and children —in a beautiful home, with you as the guiding spirit.
And here's the last original paragraph to complete Step 13.
You are probably extremely open and honest with others.
EXPRESS THE NEGATIVE ATTITUDES OF THE 6 EXPRESSION.
There is the possibility that you may be too exacting of yourself and willing to sacrifice yourself (or your family) for the welfare of others, but your strong individual needs will probably mitigate this attitude.
At times, you may have substantial difficulty distinguishing helping from interfering.
Although you may express worry and anxiety, you are apt to try and cover these feelings and look at the bright side instead.
The expression of your individual needs will prob-bably keep you from becoming a drudge because of excessive involvement with your responsibilities.
With the completion of Step 14, we've completed the portion of the reading devoted to the 6 Expression and its related energies. Now, we move on to the 9 Soul Urge and its related potential.
There are only two modifiers related to the 9 Soul Urge. The 9 Growth Number adds a strong note to Step 15. The 11 Maturity Number is mentioned in passing in Step 21.
EXPRESS THE MOTIVES OF THE 9 SOUL URGE.
The question here serves as a transition from the 6 Expression to the 9 Soul Urge.
What are your deep inner motivations?
Your inner nature wants to give of itself to others —usually in a humanitarian or philanthropic manner. You probably want to give much of friendship, affecton, love. You may want to give your knowledge and experience. You may also want to share with others your artistic or creative talents. It's possible that these talents are of considerable magnitude.
The description of the 9 Growth Number (chart 9: the challenge/the growth number) fits well here.
You will help expand your development when you give of yourself for the pleasure of giving—giving money, time, friendship, affection, love, understanding, sympathy. You must give with little expectation of return or reward. Allow the needs of others to take precedence over your personal ambitions. This seemingly difficult direction can bring the deepest of satisfactions. You have a good deal of energy tending in this direction.
EXPRESS THE HARMONY OR DISCORD OF THE 5 LIFE PATH/9 SOUL URGE ASPECT.
The original paragraph remains unchanged, although it resembles Step 10. (In an advanced delineation, Steps 10 and 16 would be combined.)
Although your inner nature feels the need to give to others, you may often feel torn between this need and your stronger need to explore the exhilarating opportunities that present themselves for your personal development. You must learn to balance these opposing energies to avoid the frustration of missing an adventure or the sadness of not being available to those in need of your help.
EXPRESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE 5 LIFE PATH/9 SOUL URGE COMBINATION.
Although you are able to recognize your opportunities, you find somewhat fewer possibilities than you would like to advance your inner devel opment. The experiences at hand, while not necessarily presenting opportunities to fulfill your inner needs, are apt to act as a secondary motivating force. Make the most of these experiences. Learn to accept the natural pace of your development.
EXPRESS THE HARMONY OR DISCORD OF THE 6 EXPRESSION/9 SOUL URGE ASPECT.
Your natural talent at being helpful and able to balance inharmonious situations will be substantially aided by your inner need to give to others, often without thought of yourself. You may be much concerned with the betterment of the community and capable of assisting in that betterment.
You are apt to be strongly motivated to develop your creative expressive talents.
EXPRESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE 6 EXPRESSION/9 SOUL URGE COMBINATION.
Your motivation sometimes seems to outrun your abilities. Although you have many ideas, your natural talents don't necessarily help to advance these ideas. Learn to be content with the realization that it will take more time than you would prefer to fulfill your inner desires.

EXPRESS THE POSITIVE ATTITUDES OF THE 9 SOUL URGE.
Delete the first original paragraph since it's essentially repeating a part of Step 13.
chapter 21: synthesis
When you arc concerned about others, you are very sympathetic, generous and kind. At these times, your sensitive nature expresses much love, compassion and tolerance. There may be times, though, when you prefer not to be involved at all.
Include this original paragraph.
You possess a deep, intuitive understanding of life, innate wisdom, good intuition and a broad point of view.
Add this brief paragraph to describe the 11 Maturity Number (chart 10: the maturity number). As we mentioned in Chapter 16, there's only a small chance that the energy related to this Maturity Number will be activated.
At this time in your life, you may begin to be a -ware of the spiritual world and the relation of that world to the material world.
You are capable, at times, of expressing high ideals and an inspirational approach. You are capable of being self-sacrificing, but this trait is apt to conflict with your love of freedom.
Omit this paragraph. It's a repetition of part of Steps 15 and 16.
You can give freely without being concerned a bout any return, although your desire to give may cause conflicts with your self centered needs.
EXPRESS THE NEGATIVE ATTITUDES OF THE 9 SOUL URGE.
The original paragraphs remain unchanged.
You may be far too sensitive, extremely emotional with your emotions expressed very strongly.
