## Numbers Behind The Core Elements

WHEN 40% OR MORE OF THE ELEMENTS AND Groups SUB-ELEMENTS BELONG TO A GROUP, THE GROUP ENERGY IS AN IMPORTANT MODIFIER.

You may remember that, in Chapter 2, we discussed the fact that some of the energies naturally work together. Here are the

 most common groups: 1,4,8 business, system and order, self-centered- ness. 2,6,9 helping, caring 3,6,9 artistic, creative 7,11,22 nervous tension 11,22 special potential

If some of the elements are part of the group, the elements' description alone will indicate the group energy. Sometimes, though, you'll find groups primarily of sub-elements. Unless their energy is described, this important effect would not be noted.

Carl, on page 143 of Chapter 13, has a lot of numbers from the first group.

His Life Path is 8.

His Soul Urge is 1.

His Birthday is 4.

One Soul Urge sub-element is 1.

### Two Expression sub-elements are 4.

Of the twelve elements and sub-elements, six belong to the 1,4,8 group, indicating that Carl would probably express a strong leaning toward business, system and order as well as displaying a tendency to be self-centered. Since three of his elements are in this group, it's not necessary to describe the group energy in a separate paragraph in the reading.

Numbers My birthname is Matthew Oliver Goodwin.

behind The calculation for my Expression would, of course, look like the core this:

elements MATTHEW OLIVER GOODWIN

4 12285 5 639459 7664 5 95

THE 24 IS THE NUMBER "BEHIND" THE 6. IT ADDS A TRACE OF COLORATION TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THE CORE ELEMENT. It is a modifier of lesser importance.

The purest form, say, of the 6 Expression would occur when there is no number behind the Expression, just the sub-elements. For instance:

HENRIETTA JEAN HUME .85 599 5 22 1 1 5 1 5 8 3 4 5 (46) (10) 1 + (12) 3 + (20) 2 =

This pure form, of course, represents an individual who is responsible, helpful, loving and sympathetic.

We have, from Chapter 13:

CARL HAROLD. CHRISTOPHER 3 193 8 19 6 3 4 38991267859 (16) 7 + (31) 4 + (67) (13) 4 = 15 =

Now Carl has a 15 behind the 6. We would expect Carl to emphasize his own needs a bit more than Henrietta (from the self-centered 1 and 5 traits) and tend to be a bit looser and freer in his committments (from the restlessness of the 5).

My name, above, with the 24 behind the 6, would mean that I tend to be very responsible, helpful, loving and sympathetic - (the 2 adds energy similar to the 6 energy), along with a trace of stubbornness or rigidity (a 4 trait).

And finally:

WALLACE WELLS MANDEL 5 133135 55331 415453

With that 33 behind the 6, Wallace would tend to show optimism and enthusiasm (3 characteristics) along with his loving, responsible nature. The 33 doesn't express as a negative doubled 3 but, rather, as the positive side of the 3— emphasized.

These are, admittedly, rather subtle nuances. Include them in the delineation when it feels comfortable.

Hal Allen has:

6 Expression 9 Soul Urge 3 Birthday

6 sub-element in the Life Path 9 sub-element in the Expression 6 sub-element in the Soul Urge

Six of his twelve elements and sub-elements belong to the 3,6,9 group. This should be noted in the bottom row of his organization sheet (Figure 18-1 on page 172).

Since Hal's strong artistic and creative potential is described by his core elements, it's not necessary to devote any additional space in the delineation to the group energy.

A description of the numbers behind Hal's elements—the 14 behind his 5 Life Path and the 24 behind his 6 Expression—are not included in the delineation, either. The 1 energy is already described with Hal's four l's Intensity Point and 1 Challenge. The 2 energy is discussed relative to Hal's 2 Maturity Number and 2 Karmic Lesson. The 4 energy is not specifically mentioned in Hal's delineation. His opposing 5 energy is so strong that this subtle 4 potential would be of little consequence.

You'll find that there are only occasional instances where either the group energy or the numbers behind the elements need mentioning.
