Joanne Justis is one of the world’s experts on Chaldean numerology and an inspirational author.
The International Association of Numerologists has only two recognised Chaldean Master Numerologists in their records and Joanne is one of them. In Pure Spirit has been lucky enough to secure a short interview with Joanne and we hope you enjoy.
How important is numerology in your life? Can you give us an example of numerology from your day to day living?
Chaldean Numerology is very important in our lives but most people are unaware that it even exists or the magical powers of gleaning information from the secrets that lay hidden within a name and birthdate—because it was not a part of our educational system. It’s virtually impossible to live in this world without using numbers in everything we do. Numbers are a part of our existence and define our lives—even though most people are not aware of their importance or that we use numbers consciously or unconsciously.
An example of usage would be calculating a day with the best possible vibrational patterns for travel, surgeries, weddings etc. Knowing what your vibrational patterns are (positive or negative) will assist you in making the decision to commit for that particular day or to reschedule another day when the vibrational patterns are more favorable to you.
Do you have a favorite version of numerology? Why does it stand out above the others?
The only version of Numerology that I use is known as Chaldean which is the only accurate system of numbers dating back to 4004 BCE. This system is based on sound and phonics versus the other system that is based on the alphabet and number assignment which destroy the vibrational patterns of naming. Only a few experts in the world know this, even western numerologists will tell you that they know their system lacks something but they don’t know what that something is.
What’s a common numerology mistake that you see less experienced numerologists make?
The most common mistake made by less experienced numerologists is that they don’t know the rules of the game that are quite complex or even if they are using the right system of numbers to begin with. For example, most people when calculating a business name will include Inc. LLC, Corporation etc. which is a part of the name but does not apply when calculating the name. This is a financial structure only so it carries no weight in selecting the name but will indeed alter the correct vibrational pattern if calculated.
The same thing holds true for a personal name. Many people leave out the middle name or add Jr., Sr. which then provides the wrong result. Not following the rules will provide inaccurate information. Another mistake numerologists make is that they don’t do their research and assume articles written on numerology are valid. The books that have been published and information residing on the Internet are mostly all inaccurate but the average person would not know the difference between what is accurate and what is not.
What should people keep in mind once they start to explore numerology?
Anyone interested in learning the art of Numerology should know that it takes time to learn the rules and system regardless of whatever system they choose. It’s really important when calculating the formulas that the calculations be checked and rechecked again for accuracy. It’s very easy to make a mistake when doing math if you are not concentrating on what you are doing.
What’s your favourite story where numerology has been able to really help someone through dark times?
A woman wanted a divorce from her husband of 25 years because he was not aggressive nor was he taking the lead in making decisions leaving them all up to her which she grew tired of. She met a man who was aggressive and exciting and decided to upgrade so she thought she would be getting a better partner. After generating their blueprints/charts, she learned that her husband had no aggressive numbers in his chart but realized he was a great provider/caregiver/lover who gave her all the freedom she wanted to run the household. In contrast, this woman had all of the aggressive numbers so in essence, she had been beating this man up all this time for something he had no control over. When I suggested that the new man might not be as great a lover and maybe even dominating and controlling, she had to take a look at her current relationship. After the reading/consultation which helped her to intellectually understand herself and her husband’s behavior patterns, she realized now that she had the perfect partner who was never going to be aggressive. When she accepted that fact that she could not change her husband’s traits, the decision to divorce was no longer a consideration.
Can you help us understand the role the number 9 plays in Chaldean numerology? Why don’t we see it very often?
Chaldean Numerology is based on the Chaldean Alphabet which assigns only “eight” root numbers (numerical values) to the sound-syllables (letters) of their alphabet. The Number “9” was considered to be sacred in and of itself. It was sacred not only because it was symbolic of the highest level of spiritual attainment, but also because it’s level of creative energy was higher than all numbers. Therefore the Number “9” could never be assigned to represent a single “letter” (sound-syllables). As a consequence, the Number 9 is not included in the number assignment of the letters (sound-syllables) of the Chaldean Alphabet.
Although we don’t use the Number 9 in the formula calculation, that number can certainly appear anywhere in a blueprint as a result of the calculation equaling a Number “9”.
