The Number 1 - The Number of New Beginnings and Leadership and Offense
Try to visualize the number 1. What do you see? An independent number all by itself. A number that points straight upward. (A tower of strength.) A monument such as the one in Washington DC.
The number 1 needs to be bold because it only has one chance. There is only one of its kind. The immature number 1 doesn’t think a whole lot about others. It thinks about survival. It is about the drive to preserve the self. The mature number 1 needs people. How can a person lead if there are no followers? An adjective given to describe the mature number 1 is leadership. In Astrology 1 is given the sign of Aries. Aries is the beginning of the cycle. It can be the newborn baby as well. As such it can be quite helpless. If a person grows and experiences all the signs they will end up back at Aries. Are they the same? No. Now they have all the sign’s experiences. They have been around the block so to speak. Once they have been around the block they can act as guides. These types of people are leaders. They show other people the way. This is a different type of Aries. Sometimes Aries people are a little of both. In some areas they are great leaders. In other areas they are inexperienced and act like a newborn child. Both types of people are Aries. The Greek Aries or Ares was somewhat of a klutz. The Roman Aries or Mars was much more organized. He was the God of War. Aries is in reality a little bit of each.
As a one you are a leader. You love to be self reliant and independent. You love to take risks and to roll the dice. You are an explorer and a pioneer. You are definitely enterprising. You like to persuade others to your point of view. Selling is right down your alley. You like action and action heroes. You are the type who travels the road off the beaten path. Like Frank Sinatra you relate to the song” I did it my way.” Initiative is one of your strong points and like a match you are good at getting things started. You are a catalyst that speeds up a reaction. Your personality is so strong that it either inspires or repels others. You have a pioneering spirit and are known to be on the cutting edge of anything new. You like the new and the unproven. You may be the owner of your own company. You are the type of person who needs to follow through. This will help you to obtain your goals in life. You can be a controller and you may be selfish.
The positive 1 - Initiating action, pioneering, leading, being independent, attaining goals.
The negative 1 - Selfish, immature, temperamental, argumentative, pushy, offensive.
The Planet Mars - A Fire Planet, The Sign of Aries and the Color of Red.
Mars is dignified in Aries and has its detriment in Libra. It is exalted in Capricorn and has its fall in Cancer. By dignified I mean it rules that particular sign. An analogy to be made is a Planet or a homeowner who lives in his own house and feels most comfortable in this house. A planet in detriment means that it is 180 degrees away and is in opposition to the whole idea. Dead against it. The person comes right out in defiance of it. Even though opposites are real, often times in the real world, a person will have a little of each opposite incorporated into his or her being or personality. The word exaltation would mean the Planet or person does not live at home but is visiting a neighbor’s house and he is most comfortable there. A planet in its fall is one where the Planet or person is visiting and feels most uncomfortable there. The house that holds the planet Mars is very important. Mars shows how a person acts. It shows where a person focuses their energy. In the first house a person would be a lot like an Aries. In the second house they would put a lot of energy into their possessions. In the third the person may have a sharp tongue. In the fourth the person may need to feel secure before they will take a chance.
In Greek Mythology Ares was the God of War. In Rome he was called Mars. Even the color of the planet bears witness of itself. It is a rusty red. I once heard the analogy of a bullet and that stuck with me because it describes the number 1 very well. A bullet doesn’t look back. It gets the job done. It leaves a mess for others to clean up. It is direct & goes straight for the mark. It is used in war. War causes bloodshed and red is the color of blood. It is bravery or the willingness to be bold. The color red can be seen from a long way off. It is supposed to get your attention. That is why it is used for such things as a stop sign or a red light. Red is the color of fire. It is often used as a sexual symbol, the lady in Red ect. (Ruby red lips.) In Astrology the Planet Mars rules over all these things. In ancient times the planet Mars got a bad rap. It was known as the second malefic planet. Only Saturn had a worse reputation. But no planet or number in and of itself is bad. All planets and numbers have a good and a bad side to them. War, killing and hate are some of the expressions of the bad side of the planet Mars and the number one. However drive, action & straightforward honesty are good attributes of the number one. The color red is the first color in the rainbow. It is the lowest frequency of visible light.
I as a person I believe in simplicity when it works. So I will attempt to paint a picture of the sign for Aries as simply as I can. When you think of the sign of Aries think offense and how you go about doing things the first time around. (Think Pioneer) An excellent book on the signs was written by Stephen Forest. “The Inward Sky”. Another good book to start with is Astrology For The Light Side Of The Brain by Kim Rogers-Gallagher
The Mazzaroth and the Signs.
The Mazzaroth is the Hebrew name for the Zodiac or the twelve signs. It is mentioned in the Old Testament in Job 38:31-33. Job is wishing he was dead and Jehovah basically tells him he is not as smart as God. Even the start of the chapter is informative. God in speaking directly to the prophet Job says, "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?" In other words Jehovah is asking Job. Can you tell me the meaning of the stars?
Do you understand Astrology? I believe the main reason the zodiac was created was to show Gods glory in the Heavens. Each sign shows a piece of the mission of God. It includes his premortal life as Jehovah and his earthly reign as Christ.to his immortality as a resurrected person with an immortal perfect celestial body. I believe these truths were once taught by the ancient patriarchs such as Adam, Enoch, Noah, and Abraham etc. Later the truth was lost and only pieces of the original truth were left. This started in Babylon and continued with the Egyptians down to the Greeks and the Romans. Each society created its own myths to the meaning of the Zodiac. God in his perfectness resembles all twelve signs. All human beings incorporate parts of the Zodiac into their own personalities as well. In each section I will explain the original meaning of each sign. Modern Astrology calls these meanings archetypes.
The sign of Aries.
When Moses was told to lead the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt he was told to do this around the time of the Spring Equinox. The Jews call this the Passover as this was when the angel of death passed over any house that had lambs blood on it’s door. Again notice the symbolism. Lambs blood. (The Lamb showing the Christ slain from the foundation of the world.) Rams are grown up lambs. When God was on the earth as Christ he was in a sense a lamb. He had not been resurrected yet with a perfect body. In Gods own eyes he was a lamb. The zodiac sign is of a Ram not a lamb. How does that fit?
(Mormon Doctrine (-MMmeta)) To understand this you need to know about the doctrine of Pre-earth life. This is a doctrine, which has been lost and needs to be re understood. It was corrupted into the doctrine of reincarnation. I believe that originally all the ancient patriarchs taught this doctrine. Including Noah to his three sons Shem Ham and Japheth. Over time it was lost but pieces remained. The doctrine teaches that all people lived prior to this life as spirit children of kind parents. We all had a father and a mother. They were perfect. This is where the Greeks got Zeus and Hera. Most of the original heathen Gods had wives. Even our modern Christianity is flawed. It teaches about only one God. The truth of the mater is that we have a father and a mother in the Heavens. The Hebrew word for God is Elohim. Any time im is used it shows a plural. It should be translated, the Gods. (Meaning husband and wife or Father and Son). We lived in heaven as spirit children of these loving parents. Our whole purpose for this life was to be like them. We are to become gods and goddesses. However mankind cannot do this on it’s own. It needs the help of a God. In other words we cannot do this our way we need to do it by following our Fathers rules. A spirit child of our Father who was also the first-born spirits in Heaven always obeyed his father. That spirit child evolved into a God in the pre-earth life. His name was Jehovah or Jesus Christ. (The Ram, which represents the leader, the pioneer.) Jehovah agreed in this pre-earth life to be our Savior. John on the isle of Patmos saw this in a vision and recorded it in the book of Revelation in chapter 5. And I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals;  and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?"  And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,  and I wept much that no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.  Then one of the elders said to me, "Weep not; lo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals." Who was the man seated on the throne? Answer: God the Father. Who took the book from his right hand? Answer: Jehovah or Jesus. Jehovah was Jesus in the pre-earth life. When speaking to his prophet Job, Jehovah explains this concept of a premortal life. You can read about it in Chapter 38 of the book of Job in the Old Testament. Jehovah teaches Job that not only was he to be the Savior slain from before the foundation of this world but that all the people of the earth once lived with God in Heaven. Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:  "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?  Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.  "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.  Who determined its measurements -- surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?  On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone,  when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? What were the sons of God happy about? Answer, that the earth was finally made and they could receive mortal bodies and live on it. Who made it? Answer it was Jehovah. Later from the book of John we learn that Jehovah was also known as the word, because the word made the world. In the New Testament we read in John chapter 1 in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God;  all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.  In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him.  He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light.  The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not.  He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. I know this all sounds different from what you have been taught but mediate on it and pray about it. Remember in order to gain wisdom you must keep an open mind. I know this doctrine is deep and it may not be easy to swallow but hang in there. It should be understood that God does not require you to understand all the mysteries in order to have Eternal Life. All that is needed is an obedient attitude and faith. I wrote this info up to add more meaning and depth but it is not necessary in order to receive Salvation.
The Ascendant - The first house
If you have studied Astrology you have read that the Ascendant is the way a person comes across to others when making a fist impression. A lot of books call it your front or mask. I believe it shows our potentials or our half-baked abilities. It effects our early childhood. It starts to apply after a child turns eight years old. Prior to that their moon sign rules a small child more. I believe that people develop in the following manor. From birth to seven years old a person is influenced most by his or her moon sign. Then from age eight to fourteen a person is learning to develop their rising sign. From age 15 to 21 a persons birthday number takes over. (The actual day they were born) Then from age 21 to 28 a person develops their sun sign. All of these energies combined determines their personality or Myers Briggs number. Back to the Ascendant or rising sign. If a parent knows the Ascendant or Rising sign of their child they can help give that child a fast start in life. They do this by surrounding that child with experiences that have to do with their rising sign. I have a child who has Leo for his rising sign. I put him in sports and he had an immediate likening of it. I have another child who had Pisces rising. We introduced him to Piano and music and he was a natural with it. Another son has Sagittarius rising and he likes science, travel and sports. My youngest three year old has Scorpio rising and Pluto conjunct the ascendant. What ever he does, he does with intensity. When he talks it is loud. He likes Karate, I hope it is passing but it probably is not.
The Ascendant shows the type of immediate environment that a person likes and feels comfortable with. Without this type of environment the person will get angry and upset. The Ascendant is a strong indicator of potential talents. I emphasize potential, because if you are not exposed to activities that describe your rising sign you will not develop, as you should. I have my sun in the 6th house opposite my ascendant in Libra.
As I mentioned in the introduction I believe that the house that holds a persons sun sign is more accurate in describing their personality. The 6th house belongs to Virgo so I am more quiet and analytical like a Virgo. I also have the Planet Neptune conjunct my Ascendant, so I am also a bit of an idealist. I am involved in counseling, and I like it a lot. My specialty today is career counseling. A lot of the tools I use are my own version of Numerology & Astrology as well as Myer Briggs & Holland Codes. I also like subjects such as religion. The mystical Merlin was always a favorite of mine in the story of King Arthur and the round table. The first house is a personal house. It is one of the six houses bellow the horizon. If Saturn is in this house the proper projection of the self can be delayed or the person may act old for his or her age. That is because he or she has potential to be in charge. The first house has a lot to do with people. This is the self or how others respond to the projection of that self.. It is important that a person develop the talents of their rising sign and any planets in that house, otherwise the person will act this way or make a first impression like their rising sign or planets but it will only be a mask. There will be no substance behind the first impression. With a developed rinsing sign the person makes a fist impression but it has substance behind it.
“Mares eat oats and does eat oats but little lambs eat ivy.” Mares are female horses, does are female goats and little lambs are baby rams if male. Lambs or sheep will eat grass or ivy. They can be counted on to clear the ground of unwanted growth. They go right to it and get the job done. Goats will nibble at their food. Keeping the grass low is not a job for goats. Sheep do a better job of it. The same thing can be said of the one personality. If you need a path cleared ask a one person. They are the pioneers in life. They are the efficiency experts. Eight people are the ones you need to have around if persistence is a needed trait. (Back to sheep.) Why the Ram? That was a question I asked myself when I first studied Astrology. The six signs that like to be in charge and in leadership positions are Aries, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius. The corresponding numbers are Aries =1 Taurus =8 Leo =3 Scorpio =11/2 Capricorn =4 and Aquarius =9. I have found that the numbers one, two and four are similar to cardinal signs in Astrology. Mutable numbers are 5, 6 &7 and fixed numbers are 3, 8, 9 and 11. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are cardinal signs. All these signs match the cardinal numbers. Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed signs. The signs Aries and Capricorn are obvious. But Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius need some more digging into in order to understand why they like to be in charge as well. The Sun is exalted in Aries and the Sun is the natural ruler of the sign Leo. The co-ruler of Scorpio is Mars. The planet Mars is dignified in Aries. You will also notice that some Cancer & Libra people like to be in charge as well. They can go either way. Usually they prefer a supportive role as Cancer is similar to the number two and two’s like the supportive role. In analyzing the sign of Libra I have found that the planet Venus is the natural ruler of it. These people don’t necessarily like the limelight either, as Venus is exalted in Pisces and Pisces likes to hide. The moon is exalted in Taurus. Taurus is similar to the number 8. Eight stands for new money. The moon is the natural ruler of the sign cancer and Jupiter is exalted in cancer. The co-ruler of Aquarius is Saturn. Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn. Capricorn is similar to the number 4.
To sum it up both cardinal and fixed signs like to be in charge. Mutable signs can go either way but prefer the background unless they have a strong cardinal or fixed number for a birthday or rising sign. Of the six signs that like to be in charge only Aries and Capricorn tend to dominate this group. They are the leaders of the leaders. Both of these signs have climbing animals as their symbol. (The ram for Aries and the goat for Capricorn.) The number 1 verses the number 4. The ram verses the goat. A ram is a grown up sheep. Sheep in the Middle East will only follow their master’s voice. Sheep give wool and meat, and goats give milk. Wool and meat are used in the wintertime to stay warm and to survive. Milk is used more to nurture and is used for the young. Even though Capricorns can be somewhat stand off-ish they are more nurturing to others than Aries.
More goats’ milk is drunk in the world than cow’s milk. If you live in the USA the opposite is true. Both goats & rams have horns. Rams have horns, which they use to butt other rams with. Rams are competitive. They are often fearless and will fight other rams for a mate. They are provided with hard heads. An effective military offensive tool was the battering ram. A tree was used to bash down the closed doors of the enemies castle. Aries people attack obstacles in this manner. They don’t always think their problems out. They run over or knock down their enemies or obstacles rather than go around them. A goat will go around obstacles placed in its way. It is more strategic. Sheep eat plants down to the ground. Goats nibble at their food. If you ever felt like you were run over by a person they probably have a strong Aries or number 1 character. An Aries or 1 personality will inspire you and give you a warm greeting, but is impatient with babies. A Capricorn or 4 personality will tend to be more practical and provide you with nurturing instruction. (They are often more serious and act more mature.) The goat nibbles its food. Four people love the materialistic world. They like to sample it all. A one person likes to get the show on the road. If it’s time to eat they eat.
Saturn the planet of time is the natural ruler of Capricorn. Capricorn is the beginning of the winter season, which is harsh and often cold. Under such harsh conditions a person must prepare if he or she is to survive. Aries is the sign for the beginning of spring. Less preparation is needed. One people just “do it”. Planning is not as needed. In a parable Christ talks about the judgment and uses Sheep and Goats to teach some lessons. Mat 25:32.25 "before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats," Version: RSV Christ uses symbolism to teach many doctrines. Goats represent leaders of the material world. It represents those people who put earthly wealth and money and possessions in front of God. Sheep represent those who follow Christ. These are also leaders but these are leaders who put God first. Mat 6:31-33 "therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?' For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well." Speaking of Rams it is interesting to note that Christ was actually born in April (FOT (-MMmeta)). Year unknown. (Probably 7, 5 or 3BC.) The account in Matthew has the sheapards keeping watch over their sheep by night. If it had been December 25, the sheep would not have been in the fields during the winter. They would have been in the barns. The spring fits the story of the shepherds better. Even the colors of Christmas are represented in the birth of Christ and Christmas. April is the color of red and green is the color of the number 6. I believe Christ was born April 6th. The colors of Christmas are red and green. Also remember that Jehovah of the Old Testament was the same as Christ of the New Testament. When Moses asked Jehovah what his name was he said ”I am that I am, tell them I am has sent you”. “I am” is the very descriptive words used to describe the sign of Aries. Christ was the oldest son or first born of all of Heavenly Father’s or Elohim’s children. He in essence is our true eldest brother. He is himself a God. He progressed to this point in the pre-earth life. The humility of God is that he agreed to be our Savior in the pre-earth life and take on a mortal body. He brought about the resurrection so that we could all go back and live with our Father Elohim again. He gave us rules (Saturn) and if we are mature we will keep them. The sun reaches the highest point at 12:00 noon. It crosses over the 10th house at this time. The Sun is a symbol of the hero self. It is symbolic of the kingdom of Heaven. Each day this symbolism occurs to remind us that we will reach our high point and be exalted if we keep Gods rules. The Sabbath was originally kept on a Saturday. The word Saturday is a form of the word for Saturn’s Day. Saturn is the planet, which symbolizes our teacher and our father. It is also the planet of rules.
The Letters A, J & S
In Pythagorean Numerology the letters A, J & S are given the value of the number 1 or Aries. I have found that words that add up to a one are a lot like the sign of Aries. Unfortunately this does not always work with people’s names (INDIVIDUAL SONA/PERSONA EXPRESSION AND SUMMATION). I have found nicknames sometimes work. It works this way A is a 1 B is a 2 C is a 3 D is a 4 E is a 5 F is a 6 G is a 7 H is an 8 and I is a 9. Then it repeats with J as a 1 K as a 2 etc.
It’s not an exact science but it lets you howne in on important facts about a subject or word. More of these numbers and signs will be explained in more detail under their specific number.
