Wonder why people with the same Astrology sign or Life Path number are so different? In Numerology, part of the reason is that your Life Path is made up of different combinations of numbers in your date of Birth. Some people have strong character traits predicted by the presence of completed lines in their Birth Chart. Are you one of them?
Creating the Birth Chart
Numerology’s birth chart is built using a (3) by (3) square; with the positions numbered from bottom to top, and left to right. The whole number digits are used, while (0) is excluded. A square showing the positions for each digit is shown below:
( 3 )( 6 )( 9 )
( 2 )( 5 )( 8 )
( 1 )( 4 )( 7 )
To chart an individuals birth chart, we take each digit in their Gregorian date of birth, and place it in the appropriate square of the birth chart. Zeros are ignored, so the maximum number of digits in a completed chart is (8), though many people have fewer digits.
For an example, actor Johnny Depp was born June 9th, 1963; so his birth chart would look as follows:
( 3 )( 66 )( 99 )
( _ )( __ )( __ )
( 1 )( __ )( __ )
Determining Birth Chart Lines
A series of numbers on your Birth chart which form a row, column, or diagonal are called birth chart lines. Completed lines show factors which strengthen your character in some way. The presence of three or more lines shows a strong personality with the potential for easy success on your life path.
Note that Johnny Depp, (shown above) has a completed horizontal row (3-6-9) indicating that he has the Line of the Intellect present in his chart.
The following descriptions show what each completed line means.
