Each one of us has four personal numbers that carry a specific vibration. They are the Life Lesson Number, the Soul Number, the Outer Personality Number, and the Path of Destiny Number. In this post, we’ll be focusing on the Life Lesson number.
The Life Lesson Number represents lessons one must learn in this lifetime and is most significant to career choices. It is derived from your full birthdate.
Though this post will be focused on calculating one’s number using the numbers in your birthday, I’m including information on how to calculate the numeric vibration of letters as well, because it’s intrinsically related.
To work with the value of letters beyond “I”, which is 9, we reduce the value to a single digit. For example, “O” is 15, so we reduce the number by adding the first digit to the second: 1+5=6. The number 15 is then written as 15/6. The letter “T” is 20. We reduce the 20 by adding the first digit to the second: 2+0=2. The number 20 is then written as 20/2.
Number Values of the Alphabet
A 1 J 10/1 S 19/1 B 2 K 11/2 T 20/2 C 3 L 12/3 U 21/3 D 4 M 13/4 V 22/4 E 5 N 14/5 W 23/5 F 6 O 15/6 X 24/6 G 7 P 16/7 Y 25/7 H 8 Q 17/8 Z 26/8 I 9 R 18/9
We can reduce any word to a numeric vibration by using the above table. Before we move on to calculating one’s Life Lesson number, lets experiment with a few words:
3 + 9 + 6 + 5 = 23/5 C R O W
We reduce 23 by adding 2+3=5, which is written 23/5
5 + 9 + 2 + 3 + 8 = 21/3 W I T C H
We reduce 21 by adding 2+1=3, which is written 21/3
3 + 9 + 7 + 8 + 2 = 29/11 L I G H T
We reduce 29 by adding 2+9=11, which is written 29/11
There are four double digits which generally are not reduced. These are referred to as master numbers. Master numbers offer more opportunity for expression, yet demand more effort from the person or thing in question. The master numbers are 11, 22, 33, and 44. Whenever you arrive at one of these numbers in your calculations; retain the master value.
Because the word “light” vibrates to master number 11, it’s written as 29/11 instead of 29/2, which would be the case if reduced entirely. The number 2 is still acknowledged as the base number as the word will fluctuate between the vibrations of 2 and 11.
An individual will fluctuate between any master number and its base digit because the vibration of the master number is too intense to live under continuously. Living under the vibration of one’s base number offers respite while preparing to work with the master number vibration again.
Calculating Your Life Lesson Number
To calculate your Life Lesson Number, add all the digits of your birthdate together and reduce the sum. Here is an example of how someone with the birthdate of 24 October 1948 would calculate their Life Lesson Number:
Since the reduced sum of their birthday is a master number, the sum is not reduced further.
Now that you know how to calculate your Life Lesson Number, read on to see the description of each numeric vibration. All number descriptions come directly from Numerology and The Divine Triangle (1979) by Faith and Dusty Bunker, the reference material for this post.
Life Lesson Number Descriptions
1: You must learn to be original, strong willing, creative, and innovative. You should have the courage and drive to go ahead into new fields of expression and be a pioneer. You should always go forward, never turn back. At times you may be dictatorial and stubborn because you do not like to be restricted or directed. You are a good executive and work best alone. You are usually efficient and well organized. You are not naturally domestic but can manage well in any situation. You usually like sports and athletics and enjoy the thrill of winning. You are sophisticated, not emotionally romantic, and always appear at the head of social and commercial groups. By learning the lessons of number 1, you become intimately familiar with the universal energy; that probing, seeking, independent spark that moves all creation. You are creative on the physical plane because your pioneer spirit precedes all others and expresses your unique individuality.
2: You are here to learn to become a good mixer. You are a good salesperson, more persuasive than forceful. You should be a support for those in leadership roles, help them to find their goals in life, and remain behind the scenes if necessary. This quality can be a help to you in business because those who benefit from your talents will in turn help you make use of your abilities. In partnerships and groups, you will encounter the lessons you came to earn in this lifetime. Success is then very possible. You must have consideration for others and should bring people together for a common cause. Various professions are open to you as you learn to be adaptable to most things that need to be done. You could select a career in finance, music, medicine, religion, or statistical analysis and research.
3: You are best in intellectual, artistic, or creative endeavors. You need to be expressive to manifest and to see the results of your work. Beauty, fruitfulness, luxury, and pleasure are your keywords. You should have ambition and pride. You must become conscious of the law, and by being an excellent disciplinarian, you will achieve a position of authority over others. 3 combines the daring of 1 with the caution of 2. It is a number of self-expression and freedom. You must guard against becoming a jack-of-all-trades; rather, you should specialize. You could then be successful in artistic, religious, or inventive pursuits. You should avoid routine work because you dislike restriction. You should work alone for the best results. Business partnerships become too disciplined for your freedom-loving nature. You could write, lecture, teach, or find your niche in journalism. Whatever you decide to specialize in, you must use your creative and inspirational talents.
4: You must build a solid foundation on which to base your life. This demands a well ordered system of conduct and morals. Administration or some sort of management would be the best type of employment for you. You want your home life to conform to the culture in which you live. You will provide well for those within your care, and you expect them to respond with respect and dignity. You should become a diligent worker and honestly earn your success. By being thrifty, you will have an adequate savings account as security against any possible losses. You should learn not to take a chance unless it is a sure bet. You should seek high goals. You might want to achieve concrete results quickly, and therefore should strive for patience and perseverance. Learn to face reality and base all your efforts on sound practical reasoning.
5: Your keyword is freedom. If you have “free rein”, you can accomplish wonders, but if you feel bound or limited, you lose your enthusiasm and accomplish little. You would be a good explorer or Peace Corps volunteer, as you learn well by travel and experience. You are a diligent student if interested in the subject, but you may fail in subjects for which you see no useful ends. You should be eager for new experience, and shun monotony. In your quest for knowledge, you will become interested in discovering answers in books and magazines. An avid reader, a fluent talker, and a versatile doer, you are the witty conversationalist and brighten any group by your mere presence. You are here to learn and experience the value of freedom and should not tie yourself down too severely. Your talents once learned, prepare you for a literary career or a a position in sales and dealing with the public.
6: You are here to learn a sense of responsibility for your family and community. 6 is the love and domestic vibration and requires that you be responsive to the social needs of others. A fine sense of balance must be acquired so that you can equalize injustices. This keen sense bestows artistic abilities as well as judgmental talents which can be utilized in the legal system. You should develop compassion and understanding necessary to ease the burdens of those who will naturally be drawn to you. You are among those who serve, teach, and bring comfort to humanity. A wide choice of professions is yours including nursing, teaching, welfare work, ministry, medicine, restaurant enterprises, a legal profession, and possibly veterinary or animal husbandry. You may also choose to end a career in the arts, interior decorating, or hairdressing.
7: You are here to use and develop your mind. Your words should be full of wisdom when you decide to talk. Your strong intuition helps in any line you choose and gives insight when needed. You may be an enigma to others, and even to yourself at times. You like to read, think, and meditate. Many times you have to relay on your soul-force to solve difficult material problems. You may delve into the occult, the mysterious, and the phenomenal side of life. Music and other arts are in harmony with your keynotes. You may be drawn to the church, science, or research and analysis. A career in mathematics or investigation could hold your interest. You should learn to open time by yourself in the woods or by the seashore where you can get in touch with your inner self and your deepest thoughts because your destiny is to use your mind.
8: This is the number of power and ambition, the number of the executive, the boss, who lives by brain and brawn. You will learn to work and will want to see everyone else working. You can push people to become successful in their own right. You should lead and show by example how to profit in business. You are here to learn to handle power, authority, and money. You can build a business empire and should work to that end. You want success for your family and for the family name as a matter of pride. You want your offspring to carry your name with honor and dignity. Sports is another field open to you, as this number vibration bestows great strength and endurance. Many famous athletes operate under an 8.
9: You should be the universal lover of humanity, patient, kind, and understanding. You are at the peak of life’s expression and must turn and show others the way. You seem to receive wisdom from above; thus you know that the true way of happiness is in service to others. You are the marrying type, strong in passion and compassion. You easily acquire money or wealth, and know how to preserve it. You are never petty, but deal in broad concepts and can attain success in the face of difficulties. You are here to show others the way, through your breadth of thinking. You can choose from many professions; education and medicine are the most usual. You may become an orator, writer, or lecture with equal ease. Communication, foreign service, statesmanship, and leadership positions are easily within your capacity.
11: The keywords here are altruism and community. You came into a unique and testing incarnation. You must practice “love thy neighbor as thyself” and use it as your foundation. Your strong intuitions are of value in gaining wisdom and inspiration. 11 is one of the most difficult vibrations because the demand for high standards is constant. You must learn patience and at the same time be able to make quick decisions. Seek for balance between the material, physical life which has to be considered, and the inspiration, spiritual life which underlies your self-understanding. You can succeed in the field of science because all new inventions and discoveries such as laser rays, research in fields of anti-gravity or kirlian photography, or any area of electronics would appeal to you. You could choose to be an astronomer or an astrologer, or a bible researcher and interpreter. You may become a teacher or writer in the field of philosophy. You are original and creative and could become and inspirational speaker. 11 is an esoteric master number of spiritual import. It bestows courage, power, and talent with strong feelings of leadership. You must not let this power go to your head, since frame and recognition are likely; instead realize that true mastership is service.
22: You must express a basic building urge, accomplish things in a big way, and work with large groups or business concerns. You would enjoy the import-export business which could demand long distance travel and meetings with persons of authority. You like to take an inspirational idea and put it to practical use. Self-knowledge is very valuable to you. 22 gives the promise of success. You know how to use your ability to adjust the physical laws of life and living to demonstrate esoteric wisdom. You could become an executive in banking or financial affairs in a national capacity, or help organize businesses for others as an efficiency expert or the like. As an ambassador to foreign countries, you would demonstrate statesmanship. You like to be occupied in some large enterprise to challenge your power to achieve. Your lesson is to learn to take charge of large organizations and corporations and to handle money efficiently and usefully for the benefit of large groups of people.
33: You should be steady and reliable and develop a strong desire to protect others. You would like to live close to nature, and this urge may influence you to choose a life in agriculture. Your goal would be to produce food on a large scale to provide sustenance for the hungry of the world. You would never be found in any profession that could act destructively to humanity. Your talent may lie along the line of the arts: music to bring harmony, painting to bring beauty, or literature to promote education. Service in the field of medicine an healing could also attract you. Possibly, you would choose the law as a way to protect others through justice. Since the 33 consciousness is almost beyond that of humanity, a place within ministry or priesthood could lead you to the realm of your dreams as world savior. You may be required to sacrifice your own desires for the need of others in order to fulfill your Life Lesson vibration.
44: This number stands for strength and complete mental control over your life while on earth. It requires discipline in every department of life so that you may be instrumental in promoting the material advancement of the world. Your mind must be trained to let the higher forces work within it, and you must keep your body and environment in order so that you are ready for any opportunity to achieve this same results from others. Your high energy potential is meant to further evolution by helping others set their world in order. You should try to promote better ethics and justice in the world of business. You must recognize reality, then use what you learn to alleviate the physical burdens of others. You are the instrument by which this alteration takes place. By displaying bravery, resourcefulness, courage, and discipline; you serve as an example for others. Edgar Cayce is an example of the 44 vibration.
Please remember that these are just general descriptions of the numeric vibrations pertaining to the Life Lesson Number. Not everything may resonate with you, and that is perfectly fine. Numerology is meant to be tool to guide, not a stringent set of rules to live by.

word count: 8495
characters: Hansol Vernon Chwe/Original Female, bff!Jeonghan + various
prompts: seven(teen) minutes in heaven, university!AU with fraternity!Seventeen, one night stand(?), friends-to-lovers
*this references to traditional American University Greek life, referring to members as “brothers”, if you’re confused please message me! feelin hella clever that SVT/
was managed to be made in the greek alphabet
Hansol Vernon Chwe, she tried to unsuccessfully convince herself, meant nothing to her.
Not when he walked into 18th Century Children’s Literature every Monday and Wednesday, looking like the dead bird her pet cat dragged in when she was three. His ebony strands would stick out like dead twigs, usually muffled by a worn navy baseball cap with the lid twirled behind his neck. He never made a fuss when he entered a minute before the class would start, rushing to the nearest empty desk with his head down, lost in thought. Even though it was an afternoon class, he still managed to look like he walked right out of bed and into lecture.
He meant nothing to her, when he seldom spoke in their seminar, tucked away in the back scribbling notes. Especially not when he’d pipe up for class participation every other blue moon, speaking with sudden austerity about how the English language is so convoluted, his voice strangely comparable to the thickness of raw honey.
HAPPY 4/13 EVERYONE! I can’t believe it’s all over epilogue maybe heh
It’s been a wild ride these past few years and I’ve met a lot of amazing people here on tumblr thanks to Homestuck, and I’m sure I’m not the only one! I want to give a huge THANK YOU to Andrew Hussie and the HS music and art team, as well as the homestuck fandom for being amazing and creating awesome content. The upd8 was amazing. Thank you.
How can you tell if you're an omega, beta or an alpha? (Need for RPS please) Thanks for reading :)
I hope this is enough! Feel free to request more if you need them!
Alphas tend to be very tall and naturally muscular
Alphas will give off a heavy, musky scent
Alphas are capable of using the ‘Alpha tone’, which is really just an incredibly demanding tone that makes most betas and omegas obey what they ask (unless the situation is threatening). This tone is almost impossible for omegas and betas to replicate
Alphas will be more aggressive than other dynamics due to their high testosterone levels and their natural competitiveness
They’re physically the strongest at all times, on average
They usually have deeper voices than betas or omegas voices
Female alphas have a retractable penis, and don’t have a menstrual or heat cycle
Both male and female alphas find receiving penetrative sex incredibly uncomfortable, and often even painful
A young alpha will often be short and stocky, or tall and lanky
Alphas have a natural urge to protect and preserve betas and omegas, but mostly omegas
Their scent changes the least with their emotions
They can be very possessive
At the base of their penis, alphas have a thick knot of muscle that locks them to the omega they knot with
Betas have exceptionally good hearing, sight and smell. They can detect even the slightest changes in alpha and omegas scents
Betas will give off a slightly less intense scent
Female betas have menstrual cycles, but don’t have heat cycles. Despite this, they can still get pregnant
Betas find penetrative sex pleasurable, but they can’t take an alpha’s knot without experiencing intense pain
In early life, betas are often difficult to distinguish from omegas and alphas. Some betas will be naturally small or muscular, and some will be tall or lanky
Because betas don’t react to an omegas heat or an alphas rut, they are very adept at becoming doctors and psychologists
Betas are often less intense than alphas, which makes omegas prefer to befriend them
A long time ago, an alpha’s ‘best friend’ would be a beta, as omegas would flock to the beta, and the alpha could then court them
Betas are just as capable at bonding and scenting as omegas and alphas
Betas tend to have a calming effect on het up omegas and aggressive alpha
Betas tend to have slightly sharper canines than other dynamics
Omegas tend to be the smallest and physically weakest looking of all the dynamics
However, relative to their size, omegas can be incredibly strong, especially when they’re angry
Omegas have a strong protection instinct, but it’s far more maternal
Omegas tend to flock together, and it’s not unusual for omegas to be close enough to kiss each other on the cheek/forehead or snuggle platonically
Omegas usually have a nest at all times in a small, enclosed space like a closet or in a large bed, but they only use it when in heat, stressed or pregnant
Omegas tend to smell very comforting and sweet. Their scent gets sweeter the closer to their heat they get
An in-heat omega will still be able to function, but can experience stomach cramps, indigestion, delirium, temperature swings, extreme arousal and irritability
Omegas produce slick, which is sort of like their own lubricant. It tastes very sweet
Both male and female omegas are able to get pregnant, but neither experience menstrual cycles. Both bleed internally, as their womb will simply reabsorb the unused lining every month
Male omegas do have a penis and are able to produce semen, but in much smaller quantities and it is not fertile. Male omegas lack a vagina, so all penetrative sex is done via the anus
Omegas are capable of taking an alpha’s knot, but it can be uncomfortable and even slightly painful the first few times
they’re all dirty remorseless fucking cheaters. all the time.
when john plays the breeze just happens to blow just right to keep the tower from falling. nevermind that they’re inside and there shouldn’t be a breeze in the living room.
rose confidently plucks pieces out of the tower, knowing they won’t topple it. she also predicts with 99% accuracy when it will fall over, but she keeps it to herself most of the time, except when she wants to make one of the others nervous.
dave has a weird habit of grabbing at pieces and then pushing them back in a second later. only he knows how many times he saw the tower swaying and paused to set it back right. there is a group rule that the others have to see dave take the piece though.
jade is the biggest most obvious cheater of the group, and that’s saying something. after she’s done with it, the tower blatantly defies the laws of physics. “that isn’t possible harley you fucking cheater” “what do you mean dave it’s happening right in front of you!! :P” her parts of the tower never mysteriously fail during someone else’s turn though, so the others let it slide most of the time.
the alpha kids, whose powers are not suited to jenga, don’t play with the betas. “what is even the point of cool powers then!?” jake was heard saying to roxy during the weekly alphabeta family game night.
here them are!! my sexuality/gender hcs fluctuate like a motherfuck same with my jade hcs [i see any jade and woah that’s a good jade]
but yea uh!
jade + jake - filipino / black / asian jade is a pan demi trans girl, jake is a ??? demiboy
dave + dirk - japanese / white [although i also hc them as japanese / black as well ] dave is bi and dirk is greyro gay and they’re both trans dudes depending on the day
rose + roxy - black / minor japanese blood rose is a moon lesbian and probably lunarian, roxy is a pan trans girl
john - white / korean with vitiligo [it’s mainly on his hands/stomach] jane - white with keratosis pilaris [it’s on their face/arms/thighs] john is a pan trans boy and jane is nonbinary aroace
jade, jake, dirk, and dave all are autistic rose has ocd, empathy deficit disorder and depression roxy has bpd I, minor ocd and dyslexia john has chronic depression and anxiety jane has aspergers but never got diagnosed and also depression and a panic disorder
I’m doing an Independent Study in my Fall semester! (first semester of my senior year)
Problem is… I’m not sure what to do to improve my portfolio? I’ve got some ideas though!
I’m interested in:
Creating a system/set of something (I like branding, but I already have branding in my portfolio)
What I’m thinking so far:
Sketch-note a booklet about design thinking
A website that’s kind of like an online story (interactive storybook where clicking takes you to different places)
Series of tutorials (over the programs maybe? And possibly interactive?)
Zine of something (not sure what)
Card set with a web/booklet format to support it
A typography guide
Icon set for each letter of the alphabet
A guide for my Business of Design class that I’m taking right now (it’s a pretty dry lecture class at the moment, so a fillable paper guide to help students get through it.
A visual guide on a program (Photoshop or Illustrator, not sure which)
Any of these sound TOO COOL to pass up or does anyone else have any ideas? If not, please at least signal boost because I really need to figure this out soon in order for us to make the syllabus and proposal!
