I recently read where someone argued that a Numerology reading without knowing the person's birth date, or even birth hour was a useless reading. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even without that information, Numerology can tell you a great deal about someone just from their use name, how they introduce themselves to you.
Here are just some of the things that analyzing someone's use name can tell us about them.
===> Motivation Number
Your motivation number is the calculated by summing the vowels in your use name using Fadic addition. This number shows what you desire from life, what motivates you. It goes by several names: Vowel number, Soul Urge, Ambition, and Hearths Desire among others.
===> Personality Number
Your personality number is calculated by summing the consonants in your use name using Fadic addition. This number shows the first impression you project to other people. It also describes how you see yourself. It is both your public and private image of yourself. This number also has several names in Numerology: Consonant number, Inner Self, and Impression among others.
===> Destiny Number
Your Destiny number is calculated by summing all the letters of your use name using fadic addition. This number shows what you really do; how you interact with other people. It also influences the situations and karma which are attracted to you because of the actions of others. This number also has many name in numerology: Expression, Character, and Name number come to mind.
This is probably the most important number that you have control over. Note that it changes whenever you change your use name. You can literally change the situations that are drawn to you by this simple act.
===> Key Number
Your Key number is calculated by summing all the digits of the first name of your use name. (your one word name if you will,) and adding them with Fadic addition. This number is your personal key to open the door of life. If describes your personal interaction with close friends and relatives.
If this number is the same as your Birthday number, (the day of the month you were born summed with Fadic addition,) then it can cause you problems. It is better that this number doesn't match your Birthday number.
Your Cornerstone is the corresponding digit of the first letter of your first use name. This number shows your attitude towards material things, and your thinking reaction to the world of things around you. Note that this reaction is not always listened to or acted upon, sometimes emotion holds sway instead.
===> First Vowel
Your first vowel is the corresponding digit of the first vowel in your first use name. This number shows your first emotional reaction to things that affect you. This will be the dominate emotion when you are surprised by something.
Not everyone has a Keystone value. These only occur when you have an odd number of letters in your first name. It corresponds to the value of the middle letter of your first name. Your Keystone highlights what may be a compulsion or an obsession for you; some area of your life which lacks balance or control.
Your Capstone is the value of the last letter of your first use name. This value influences how you complete task, or finish affairs or relationships with people.
===> Intensity Number
Your Intensity number or numbers are calculated by charting your use name, and seeing which number values occur most frequently in your name. These numbers show hidden desires or passions which you may possess. If you have a single intensity number, its affect on you will be stronger, than if you have two intensity numbers. If you don't have an intensity number, then you name is balanced, and has no hidden desires present.
===> Habit Challenge
Your Habit Challenge is calculated by summing the number of letters in your use name using Fadic addition. This talent is normally hidden, and only comes into play when you are facing an unusually difficult problem. This is a hidden or submerged strength, which you call upon in these circumstances to resolve problems which are beyond your normal abilities to solve.
These attributes of a Numerology reading can all be calculated using just the use name of the person you are reading for. Quite a bit of information for just the name you go by.
