This thread was created with the intention of exploring Radu's exciting new find on the Chain Symbols Board
without diverting from the main conversation. I shall copy his post here to avoid confusion:
Edit: my post refers to AquMav's symbol...
[Holly and mistletoe bring christmas spirit to a home.
4º Gemini ]
This one is for me actually.
I read a few days ago on Lynda Hill's website about this idea of using the Sabian Symbols in correlation with numerology. (yes, Beth, this a new idea for you, well worth delving into...).
Take one's name, sum up all letters and read the Sabian Symbol associated with that resulted number.
I recently come across this Sabian Symbol using this technique.
Next one please: An electrical storm - Taurus 2
Radu: If I am not mistaken, I believe that the sum of all the letters in one's birth name is also referred to as their Destiny Number. According to Numerology-Astrology.com, the Destiny number is computed in the following manner:
To arrive at your Destiny number, take each name separately and add up the letter values using the conversion chart below. Reduce each name to a single digit . Then add the results of all of the names to arrive at a total which you then once again reduce to a single digit.
I have used this method several times and have repeatedly arrived at the master number 22, yet if I do not reduce each name seperately as I believe you implied in your post, I come up with 67 (6+7=13, 1+3=4). Altough I understand that astrology and numerology are two seperate studies, I tend to enjoy haphazardly combining them if only to thoroughly confuse myself. So unless I am otherwise corrected, I will assume for now that this apparent discrepancy is fine.
Now that I have determined my full name to equal 67, do I subtract 30 away from this number twice (thus completing a full round of Aries and Taurus) and come to the Sabian degree of 7 Gemini?
