Hocus Pocus POTUS: Identifying the Numerical Fingerprint

As mentioned in my previous post, before we examine the numerical fingerprints of POTUS Present, Potential, and Past, some background information could be helpful to anyone unfamiliar with the concept of numerology.

We all have fingerprints, and supposedly no two people on the planet living or dead are identical. Despite the diversity of languages and cultures among humanity, two things we all have in common — a name and date of birth — create a numerical fingerprint unique to each individual. 

By speaking our name and date of birth we are saying This is who I am, and this is when I became real.

Arguably, one’s date of birth and name are a random toss of the dice. We are usually given a name on the first day of our life, or earlier, by people we just met. Even if we did have a say in the matter, we can’t talk. So how could those numbers possibly hold any relevance to the person with no choice in the matter? For those reasons, some people may consider assigning meaning to such things to be superstitious, arbitrary, and unreliable.

Examination of the letters in our name and numbers in our birthdate are believed by many numerologists to shed light on character traits, strengths and weaknesses, life path, and karmic lessons. More can be revealed by looking at vowels and consonants separately. What is the most prominent number? What numbers are missing? 

Answering these questions reveals the numerical fingerprint.

More importantly, what patterns or repetitions exist?

Numerology for personal entertainment and enrichment found in newspapers, magazines, books, and online usually focus on the numbers one through nine. These approaches apply numerology for insight about daily matters and spiritual growth, find a job, invest, get married, take a trip, or to predict the future. They may not be the best resource for a scientific or academic study of numerology. Serious numerology, recognized by intellectuals, mystics, and philosophers, reveals the nature of the universe.

Earliest human cultures, namely the Sumerians, Greeks, and Hebrews, used numbers and letters interchangeably as cultures around the world developed different systems of counting and numeration.

According to the ancient science of numerology, numbers, letters, and the sounds produced by them possess real, physical power. Known among theologians who study ancient holy texts from the world’s major religions, a parallel numerical message exists embedded within the words. It is believed that the sound made creates a vibration that manifests into physical form.  This can be seen with repeated phrases like scriptures, prayers, hymns, and mantras spoken by billions of people. 

Repeating a sound with focus and attention transforms thoughts and feelings into something real.

The Greek philosopher Pythagoras (6th Century BCE) taught that numbers contain the secret of all things and, more than abstract quantities or symbols, numbers represent qualities of the Divine. He allegedly studied for 22 years in Egypt and Babylon where numbers and numerology had already been in use for thousands of years.

The Hindu system of numerology combines meditation and mantras to determine specific numbers to apply to various areas of life.

A Chinese system, based on a grid of numbers or magic Lo-Shu sqaure, was allegedly discovered engraved on the back of a tortoise shell by Emperor Wu (156-87 BCE). This system evolved into the Ki numerology system.

The Caldean system of numerology, based on the teachings of the Kabbalah, was developed by early Judaic people who wrote the Torah with deliberate references to number codes. The 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, represented by the tree of Sephiroth, carry creative information. In creating a vibration, the sound of the spoken word possesses real tangible power.

Carl Jung (1875-1961), the founder of analytical psychology, expressed a fascination with numbers and sparred with many of his colleagues regarding their archetypal significance. Jung believed that numbers serve as symbolic expressions of the unconscious mind, and suggested that numbers were discovered by humans rather than invented by us. He was among the first in the academic community to research coincidence and synchronicity, and noted that many such experiences feature the appearance of numbers.

Numbers possess a mystical quality in addition to the quantity or intrinsic value they represent and people often give symbolic meaning to numbers.  

When we experience repeating numbers, or numbers associated with coincidence, it may represent the unconscious mind’s attempt to communicate with our conscious mind. This often occurs when inner guidance is needed to help us through difficult times. Even the most pragmatic people often have a favorite or lucky number attributable to a variety of reasons. 

More specifically, people who report the repetitive appearance of number combinations such as 11:11, 333, 2222, 4:44, claim that it holds personal significance.

Even children have conducted the simple process of adding the numbers in their date of birth, which reveals what many numerologists refer to as one’s Life Path. Techniques vary in adding the day, month and year, but overall the concept remains the same. 

Me with birthday cake

One advantage to using numerology for guidance is that your date of birth usually remains unchanged as it is celebrated every year on the same day. Even after death, your date of birth may be engraved in stone. Of course, we encounter typos on birth certificates or deliberate changes to conceal one’s true age, or adopted children may not know their exact date of birth.

Similarly, some people no longer use the name they were given at birth or go by a familiar nickname. Names can change due to marriage, adoption, or professional reasons. Actors, artists, and politicians alter the numerical fingerprint acquired at birth. This offers the opportunity to create a different vibration that is thought, felt, and spoken by millions around the world.

QUICK GUIDE: Letter to Number Conversion

Convert letters in your name to numbers by assigning the corresponding number of a letter’s sequence in the alphabet: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4 and so on. Disclaimer: this method uses the English alphabet of 26 letters. Presumably the results would be different among languages with greater or fewer letters in their alphabet. 

A-1, B-2, C-3, D-4, E-5, F-6, G-7, H-8, I-9, J-10, K-11, L-12, M-13, N-14, O-15, P-16, Q-17, R-18, S-19, T-20, U-21, V-22, W-23, X-24, Y-25, Z-26

With a double-digit number, continue adding until the result is reduced to a single digit. For example: Z = 26 = 2+6=8, Z is an 8 or S = 19 = 1+9 = 10 = 1+0=1, and S is a 1. 

The reduced results look like this:

  • 1= A J S
  • 2 = B K T
  • 3 = C L U
  • 4 = D M V
  • 5 = E N W
  • 6 = F O X
  • 7 = G P Y
  • 8 = H Q Z
  • 9 = I R

Number Interpretations

Contemporary interpretations present us with watered-down versions of ancient studies that utilized the shape of the number, the sound it makes when spoken, and other qualities besides the quantity the number represents. Compiled from a variety of sources, the following number interpretations are provided here as reference. I refrain from assigning any interpretation to the numerical fingerprints, allowing you to decide for yourself.

1confident leader
2cooperative diplomat
3expressive speaker
4honest worker
5freedom and change
6responsible humanitarian
7dignified educator
8ambitious executive
9compassionate philanthropist

Master Numbers

Beyond the numbers one through nine, some numerologists recognize double-digit numbers such as 11, 22, 33, 44 to 99, referred to as Master Numbers. These numbers point to the potential for great achievements, a master of accomplishment. One masters a musical instrument or a new language. A masterpiece artwork or performance showcases the best of the best. 

However, those insufficiently aware to cope with the higher levels of responsibility may be more inclined to manifest the negative traits and risk becoming masters of destruction.  

11Signifies mastery over the physical plane, illumination, responsibility, mysticism, empathy, inspiration, psychic abilities, and spiritual insight. Some numerologists consider 11 to possess only negative characteristics, such as offensiveness and deviance. Chinese numerology relates 11 to the Tao, or the way of heaven. Negative characteristics commonly attributed to 11 include: deception, delusion, instability, dishonesty, and confusion. Note that these numbers reduce to 11: 29 and 92, 38 and 83, 47 and 74, 56 and 65.
22Considered the “Master Architect” representing material mastery and the ability to manifest abstract ideas, innovation, intuition, detachment and objectivity, power, philanthropy and altruism, originality and invention, leadership and achievement. Negative characteristics commonly attributed to 22 include: fanaticism, perversity, immorality and lawlessness, insensitivity, rebellion, cynicism, malevolence, destruction, cruelty, tyranny.
33Represents compassionate giving and selfless service to humanity, gentleness, and kindness. Negative traits include: callous, inhumane, selfish, malicious.
44In numerology, the number 44 often represents a confident leader, efficient, energetic, and ambitious. Negatively it can manifest as intolerance, abuse, self-destruction, and ignorance.
55Intelligent, skillful, talented, and active. Negative characteristics commonly attributed to 55 include: foolish and slovenly.
66Cheerful and humorous. Negative: hateful, jealous, impatient.
77Charming, adventurous, clever, adaptable. Negative: perverse, self-indulgent.
88Successful, highly spiritual. Negative: dishonest, sarcastic, evil, ulterior motives.
99Generous, fulfilled, compassionate, loving, joyful. Negative: possessive, immoral, deceptive, unfulfilled, aimless.

Recent civil unrest in the United States has ushered in editing of the English language to eliminate words or names with unpleasant connotations. Whether it’s a street, building, musical group, or packaged food item considered offensive, names and words are being erased. 

Few other words elicit such sinister imagery as master when in reference to slavery or indentured servitude. Throughout time and cultures, be it Aztec priests performing human sacrifice or medieval dungeon masters of the Inquisition torturing victims in the name of righteous ambitions, humans have demonstrated the ability to manifest the absolute worst interpretation of this word.

A perfect example of how Master Numbers offer potential for great achievement or destruction is by actually analyzing the word master itself. 

M (13) A (1) S (19) T (20) E (5) R (18) 

13+1+19+20+5+18=76, add 7+6=13, and 1+3=4

Now reduce the numbers first before adding:

M-13 becomes 1+3=4

A-1 stays a 1

S-19 becomes 1+9=10/1

T-20 becomes 2+0=2

E-5 stays a 5

R-18 becomes 1+8=9


Usually the totals of any name or word will end up being the same, whether adding the original numbers or the reduced numbers. It’s also a good way to check your math. Some numerologists would go ahead and reduce this 22 to a 4, and so it would be the same. However, when a master number appears like this, it warrants closer attention. 

In this case, if you use the interpretations above, the number 4 represents an honest worker. The destructive aspect of 4 can manifest as simply as someone being lazy or unmotivated. And there are those who force others to do their work for them. While the 22 embodies a Master Architect, the negative traits can include cruelty, tyranny, and fanaticism.

When a master number appears, extra caution is advised. Not everyone can handle the higher levels of responsibility and obligation. While some excel and do great things, others abuse their power and manifest negative traits and destructive actions. 

Master numbers appear frequently in the Numerical Fingerprints in upcoming posts of presidents past, present, and potential. This is to reinforce that, as with the word master, the presence of master numbers suggests a person with leadership abilities and potential for great achievements. If the numerical fingerprint reveals significant weaknesses, the person risks being unable to handle the higher levels of responsibility, causing damage to themselves or others. Just sayin’…

The traditional interpretations of the numbers are for reference only. I refrain from assigning meaning to the numerical fingerprints. My intent is to seek out the presence of Master Numbers, identify unique patterns, missing, and repeating numbers. Apply these interpretations to determine whether someone is manifesting positive or negative traits as you consider appropriate.

Components of the Numerical Fingerprint

  • VOWELS = Heart’s Desire
  • CONSONANTS = Authentic Self
  • FIRST NAME = Personality
  • LAST NAME = Traits
  • FULL NAME TOTAL = Destiny or Expression
  • FULL BIRTH DATE = Life Path to reveal opportunities, challenges, lessons
  • BIRTH DAY = Potential

DATE OF BIRTH: June 14, 1985 = 6+1+4+1+9+8+5= 34/7

Some numerologists add the month, date, and year separately then combine: 6+5+23= 34/7 or 6+5+5=16/7. Either way, the result usually ends up the same.

In this hypothetical example, the letters of the first, middle, and last names are entered into the top row. In the row below, enter the corresponding numbers from the alphabet, with reduced numbers in the next row. You may find it easier to insert the numbers for vowels above the letters and consonants below.

This is a good way to check your math. Whether adding the full numbers or the reduced numbers, the sum will almost always be the same.

The exception is when a Master Number appears in either the full or reduced total. This occurs when adding one way equals a 1, but the other way equals a 55 (which would otherwise be 5+5=10 = 1+0 = 1). The same is true for 2 and 11, 3 and 66, 4 and 22, 5 and 77, 6 and 33, 7 and 88, 8 and 44, 9 and 99. In these cases, the Master Number is included in the interpretation and does not change overall totals. Some numerologists disagree on this point and believe that all numbers, master number or not, should be reduced to a single digit.

  • VOWELS = 24/6
  • CONSONANTS = 146/11 (full) or 47/11 (reduced)
  • FIRST NAME = 72/9 (full) or 27/9 (reduced)
  • MIDDLE NAME = 47/11 (full) or 29/11 (reduced)
  • LAST NAME = 51/6 (full) or 15/6 (reduced)
  • FULL NAME TOTAL (15 letters) = 170/8 (full), 71/8 (reduced), 26/8 (final reduced)
  • BIRTH DATE = 34/7
  • MOST COMMON NUMBER(S) = four of 9, three of 4, two each of 1, 2, 3
  • LEAST COMMON OR MISSING NUMBERS = one each of 5, 6; missing 7, 8

What first stands out with this example is the appearance of two Master Numbers with the Consonants total and the Middle Name total. The most prominent number is 9, with 7 and 8 completely missing. Note that 6, 7, and 8 are totals for the Last name, Full Name and Birth Date which could balance any potential weaknesses identified by those otherwise missing numbers.

If you don’t trust my math, the principles can easily be replicated by anyone with the ability to do simple addition with a pencil or calculator. 

Applying this straightforward process to presidents past, present, and potential reveals a distinct pattern and uncovers what could possibly be a secret code. This code deciphers a road map of sorts to guide the country safely into the future.
