THE EXPRESSION IS A PERSON'S POTENTIAL NAT- Definition URAL ABILITIES. The Expression is second in importance of the four core elements.
All of us are gifted, in one direction or another, with our own natural taletits" and capabilities. The Expression, describing these abilities, is usually the part of a person which is most visible to others. Because the Expression is often so apparent, it should not be mistaken for the essence of a person. These natural abilities are what we have to work with as we move along the broad channel of the Life Path, and, as such, they are less important than the central focus of the Life Path. When the Expression and the Life Path are harmonious, the visible Expression may also reflect, to a large extent, the main lesson delineated by the Life Path. When the Expression and the Life Path are not harmonious, the Life Path may come as a surprise to the observer who sees only the more obvious Expression.
A few numerologists feel that the Expression is the single most important element in a reading. In my experience, I have found that the Life Path holds the key to the understanding of a person's nature in a way that the Expression does not. The Life Path is fixed "(since the birthdate can't be changed) but the Expression, derived from the name, can be altered by changing the name. To my way of thinking, this adds additional weight to the importance of the Life Path over the Expression. As you go along in your study, examine your own numbers and the numbers of other people you know well. Compare the importance of the Life Path and the Expression in providing an awareness of a person and draw your own conclusion. (If your conclusion favors the Expression, consult the bibliography for a view favoring this understanding.)
The Expression often describes the abilities used in the type of work the person enjoys. For instance, a 6 Expression, with its emphasis on balance and responsibility, may well indicate a teacher, nurse or counselor. (People often fit their Expressions into a broader spectrum of occupations than you might expect, though, because they concentrate on that part of the work which is emphasized by their Expressions. That same 6 Expression may be used by an administrator running a small private school, a bookkeeper in a clinic, or the head of the production department in an engineering office. These people are expressing the helpfulness and conscientiousness, the balancing and adjusting abilities, the responsibility capabilities of the 6 in the performance of their jobs. The job description doesn't stress the 6 talents as much as the job description for the teacher, nurse or counselor, but the administrator, bookkeeper and production head choose to stress their 6 abilities in carrying out their work. It's usually more helpful to describe a person's abilities in a reading, rather than to list vocations which seem to fit the Expression.)
Along with these abilities, the Expression also describes the kinds of attitudes which are usually to be found with these talents. These attitudes are usually as visible as the abilities.
Calculation THE EXPRESSION IS DERIVED BY FINDING THE SUM OF THE NUMBER VALUES OF ALL THE LETTERS IN EACH NAME, REDUCING THIS SUM TO A SINGLE DIGIT OR MASTER NUMBER, THEN ADDING THE SUMS OF ALL THE NAMES TOGETHER AND REDUCING THAT TOTAL TO A SINGLE DIGIT OR MASTER NUMBER.
1. Consult the table on page 18 to find the numerical value of each letter. Place this numerical value below each letter:
LOUISE KAREN CASPER 363915 2 1955 311759
2.- Add the numbers in each name together. Reduce this sum to a single digit or master number.
(Master number, not reduced)
