The Birthchart

Birthchart The Birthchart is a numerological tool that can help you go even deeper into the analysis of your birth numbers. This method is attributed to Pythagoras who used directional arrows along with the analysis of numbers to interpret the charts. Complete lines of numbers in a person's birthchart indicate strengths of character, whereas if there is a complete blank line, this points to lack of certain qualities in the character. A surface look at the birthchart will show that the top line of numbers (369) represents the mental body (the mind, awareness, imagination, thoughts, creative ideas), the middle line (258) associates with the emotional body (feelings, sentiments, etc.), and the bottom line (147) reflects the physical world (the act of 'doing', learning, constructing in the physical, organization and practical matters). As you can see, there is no place for zeros in the birthchart, so if you have zeros appearing in your birth date, simply disregard them for the purpose of this calculation. Master numbers should also be reduced to their single-digit equivalents (e.g. 11 = 1 + 1 = 2).

Pythagoras created a system of directional arrows that, when applied to the results of an individual's birthchart, could reveal strengths and weaknesses of character, likelihood of success in particular types of endeavors, skills and abilities that would likely lead the person to certain achievements, etc. He believed that if a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line on the birthchart was filled in with numbers, this indicated strength in character. Conversely, if a line was completely void of numbers, this indicated a lack of certain characteristics or skill sets. Rather than taking these results as judgments, they were meant to be used to strengthen one's position in life through the attainment of a greater understanding of one's abilities - playing the best game with the cards you've been dealt, so to speak!

In addition to the system of arrows, Pythagoras also provided his students with an explanation of the individual numbers that appear in the birthchart. The number of times that each digit appears is also of significance.

Let's consider our sample birth date (22 February 1942) as we explore how to make use of the Birthchart and the Arrows of Pythagoras to explore the deeper levels of our potential!

Birthchart - Sample

Above you can see the birthchart corresponding to our sample date. This was created by simply writing out the date in numeric form (22 2 1942) and then transposing each number into its corresponding cell within the chart.

Two things stand out in this chart. First, there is a complete diagonal line lacking numbers on this chart. Pythagoras labeled this line the line of Disbelief. Making reference to Lineís book (p.75), letís see what this line indicates about a person who shares our sample birth date:

scepticism, doubt, uncertainty, loss of faith, suspicion, distrust of anything metaphysical, a superficial understanding of human nature.

To get another perspective, let's look at Barrat's interpretation of the arrows. He explains that it could represent someone who demands proof before believing in something, someone who is suspicious of anything metaphysical and orthodox in his or her beliefs. People with this line in their birthchart could also be prone to migraines and heightened nervousness.

The presence of numbers (whether they recur more than once or not) as well as the lack of numbers in the birthchart also represents invaluable clues to the analysis of one's character and purpose. Therefore, in this birthchart, the second thing to note is that the number 2 appears four times. According to Line's book (p.77), a person with four 2's in his/her birthchart is inclined to over-react in emotive or difficult situations. They are also a challenge to live with because of their impatience, sarcasm and displays of bad temper.

We also see that a 1, a 4 and a 9 appear. Here's what Line's (pp.77-79) has to say about these numbers:

One X 1: People with only one 1 on their birthchart sometimes find it difficult to show their feelings and because of this inability are often thought of as cold and uncaring.

One X 4: People with one 4 on their birthchart are naturally clever with their hands and are at their happiest when making or doing rather than thinking or theorizing.

One X 9: People with one 9 on their birthchart must realize that life can never be 'perfect'. They should learn to accept their lot and enjoy what they already have.

As you can see, a specific sketch of someone with our sample birthday is already revealing itself to us as we analyze just a few aspects of his/her birthchart. If we also take note of the numbers that don't appear in this birthchart, we can see that this person lacks skills/characteristics in the areas of:

  • Missing 3: the mind - concerned with intelligence, imagination and memory
  • Missing 5: manifestation - concerned with the ability to turn thoughts into deeds
  • Missing 6: decision-making - the ability to make decisions is heightened when the five Earthly senses (smell, taste, touch, sight and hearing) are aligned with the ability to reason
  • Missing 7: understanding gained through sacrifice
  • Missing 8: organization and control - as it relates to the emotional, rather than the physical, plane
