IT'S ALL IN YOUR NUMBERS by Kathleen Roquemore


Email this review


Numerology is a ""science of belief"" in a class with palmistry, astrology, handwriting analysis, and the suavities of tea-leaf reading. Roquemore believes the coming of Christ is close at hand, that ""many master souls are now incarnating upon the earth,"" and that numerology will help us to identify some of these rarefied higher plasms. On a more secular level, though even and odd numbers have their own harmonies, disharmonies and ""vibrations,"" their interpretation here is extraordinarily arbitrary--or a lot worse. Roquemore explains how the number of your destiny shows where you should be going with your life; how the vibration of the day of your birth affects your whole future; how Karmic situations that we have failed to meet and cope with continue to plague us; how numerology is closely associated with colors, gems, musical notes, and planets. She avoids the more gigantic cosmic patterns found in Ouspensky's In Search of the Miraculous (a much more persuasive explication) and keeps to the petit point of personal life and affairs of the heart. Too faddish for serious humbuggery.
