Numerology & Karma – Recognizing Objectionable Past Life Actions Through Karmic Debt Numbers

Don't worry that you were a bad person in past lives if you have one or more of the numbers 13, 14, 16, and 19 in key positions in your numerology charts. These numbers are "Karmic Debt Numbers." Everyone has had their share of lifetimes when they were not so nice. Karmic Debt numbers relate strongly to spiritual lessons.

Some might ask, why 13, 14, 16, and 19, why not 12, 15, 17, and 18, or 31, 32, 34, and 37 for example? It's because through objective empirical research (including our own) over eons, those numbers have consistently shown to directly relate to much higher than average adversity and burden.

Support for this theory is gained through corroborating information in the comprehensive ancient and modern astrology charts of those who have Karmic Debt Numbers. For instance, it's very common for a person with significant over-balanced 14 energy (e.g., 14 in one or more significant chart positions) to have patterns of unhealthy excess in the astrology charts, including a heavily afflicted Jupiter, for instance.

Handwriting analysis offers additional backing. Over-indulgence, to use the same example, is seen through graphology by one or more (best to have at least two to three traits heavily represented in at least a half page sample) of the following traits: variable slant of writing; too slack/sagging connectives between letters; concave t-bars; slant of writing to the extreme right, along with heavy pen pressure; long, needle pointed ends of lower-zone letters such as p, g, and y; thick, muddy-looking, shaded script; very heavy pressure; erratic baselines; erratic movement; irregular middle zone size (such as where the letters e, o, a, n, etc. reside); weakly crossed t-bars; and many others. We insist on using a complex system of checks and balances in our delineation and predictive work, including comprehensive ancient and modern astrology, ancient and modern numerology, handwriting analysis, past life regression, future progression, and intuitive readings.

Witnessing multiple indications lining up like the dials on a slot machine jackpot supporting a specific notion (such as the timing of a rewarding love relationship between a compatible couple) allows for a higher level of certainty. Karmic Debt Numbers symbolize unfinished business from past incarnations and a heightened need to balance specific energies. They often perfectly represent the reasons behind life's challenges.

The following are common areas in life where Karmic Debt Numbers, in various chart positions, indicate notable challenges: career; reputation and image; dreams and desires; love relationships; family, health, finances, and more.

To what degree and when karmic lessons, tied to Karmic Debt Numbers, are encountered is related to key (often matching) cyclical timing. In other words, specific cyclical timing aspects (periods of time) symbolically provide fertile "harvesting" ground for life events and circumstances noted by Karmic Debt Numbers.

It's correct to say that it is entirely possible to know what years and months, through comprehensive ancient and modern astrology and numerology, in a person's life that he or she is fated to meet his or her most pressing life dilemmas. This awareness allows one to plan and prepare. The symbolic forces of each number (balanced, under- balanced, and over-balanced) remain the same, yet each position (over 400 in our personal charting systems) in the comprehensive charts has a different impact. Therefore, the numbers are further defined by their positions. Patterns, consisting of numbers in various positions (aspects), reflect personality and life circumstances and events.

Having the number 19 prominent in your charts, as the Day of Birth position for example, simply means that you (your soul, not your personality) chose, before incarnating, to put a lot of energy toward balancing that type of energy in this particular lifetime.

We estimate that over half of the population has Karmic Debt Numbers prominent in their charts. The Day of Birth position is one of several important chart positions where Karmic Debt Numbers are sometimes found.

Sometimes the number 19 relates more to under-balanced 19 energy, such as dependency and isolation, and other times it's more connected to over-balanced 19 energy, such as intolerance, theft, and aggression. It's possible for a person to swing between over and under-balanced energy, as indicated by the rest of the charts' personality aspects and cyclical timing.

The number 19, or any number as any aspect of the charts, must be considered in relation to the other numbers/aspects to gain full understanding.

Know that some Karmic Debt Numbers, based on their positions and the rest of the charts' contents, have a much more powerful relevance than others.

Below is an excerpt from the information included with our Numerology Decoder Software, which is easy to use and will give you great insight about yourself and others, to give you a clearer idea of the energy represented by Karmic Debt numbers.

Karmic Debt Numbers

Numerology Decoder Software correctly calculates Karmic Debt Numbers. Karmic Debt Numbers include the following numbers: 13, 14, 16, and 19. These numbers are heavily associated with inherent challenges and symbolize energy that is greatly in need of balancing.

Information about each of the Karmic Debt Numbers 13, 14, 16 and 19: 13:

13 can be an extremely potent number representing transformation and success, but it usually symbolizes immaturity, lack of seriousness, degeneration, irresponsibility, trivial and idle disposition, self-indulgence, inefficiency, negligence, carelessness, extravagance, waste, verbal abuse, dishonesty, inflexibility, restriction, and health issues. Success comes from transforming all of the negative energies into effort, responsibility and maturity.

14: 14 most often represents over-indulgence, recklessness, excessive sexual appetites, abuse of freedom, short-lived interests and ventures, transitory nature, rolling stone lifestyle, lack of healthy limits, debauchery, letting go too soon or hanging on too long, constant change, impulsiveness, scattering energies, avoidance of commitment and instability. Success comes from transforming all of the negative energies into flexibility, constructive focus, specialization, and surrender of excessive sensual appetites.

16: 16 most often represents misapplication of sexual energy, disloyalty, unfaithfulness, illicit involvements, hurtful love relationships, secret sex, aloofness, distrust, neglect, loss, hypocrisy, superficiality, painful collapse of ego-self ideals, rise in status leading to eventual collapse, intense pride, self-righteousness, secrecy and painful separations. Success comes through integrity, and finding wisdom through pain and loss.

19: 19 most often represents selfishness, dependency, inability to see things from others' viewpoints, isolation, greed, theft, self-importance, addiction, aggression, intolerance, ego-centric outlook, abuse of power, disrespect of others, coercion, refusal to seek help from others, and self-centeredness. Success comes after establishing balanced self-sufficiency, yet also a capacity for cooperation and interpersonal skills.

Hi Scott,

I've have to say, I find your articles extremely enlightening and thanks for taking the time to share them with us.

However, the subject of Karmic Debt has confused me some what. Recently one of my most challenging romantic relationships ended, by way of mutual concent, and since analysing both of our essence charts I noticed that my ex-partner experienced 3 years of the Karmic # 16 during our time together. (during a 9,1,2 personal year during a 5 lesson and 1 challenge pinacle cycle)

After reading about the definition of the Karmic debt 16, it basically describes my ex-partners actions and behaviour during most of our time together, but what confuses me is that instead of him being the one to experience the "loss and pain" associated with behaving in this way - it was me?

My essence numbers during this same period were 4,5,5? during a personal years 6,7,8 during a 3 lesson and 6 challenge pinacle cycle?

Is this the way it was supposed to work?
