The Diamond is said to balance both positive and negative energies and bring confidence, divine wisdom, and consciousness to those who embrace its energy. When applied to Numerology, the Diamond is one of the most powerful patterns for divination that numerology has to offer. Its power lies in the shape and spiritual energy of a Diamond.
Whereas other metaphysical tools reflect an individual's personality, character traits, talents, future forecast and so forth, the Diamond report reveals the chain of cause and effect that runs through our lives to inspire growth and offer guidance -- both on the physical plane and the spiritual plane. The Diamond report could be called the I-Ching of Numerology, because it reveals the links and interactions between the material body and the spiritual body.
The top part of the Diamond reflects your spiritual body. It is the heaven. The lower part of the Diamond represents your physical body. It is the earth. The Diamond divides 81 years of your life into 36 time periods, each of which is presented in a 4-corner configuration -- a kind of mini-diamond -- within the Diamond. In addition, while each of these time periods affects us for 18 years (overlapping in four-and-a-half year segments), the dominating influence of each of these mini-diamonds moves to the foreground for only one year. However, it sometimes repeats itself two or three times, often spaced a few years apart.
If you look closely, you will find a number in a red square in the top half of your Diamond, which indicates your current Challenge. In the lower half you will find three numbers in squares colored gold, green, and blue, which form an inverted triangle. The numbers within this triangle reflect your Root, Action Key, and Outcome for that period.
Your Challenge, located in the top of your mini-Diamond, is like a divine quest meant to guide you on your spiritual path. The Root, Action Key, and Outcome are of the earth, and outline the process that enables you to satisfy your Challenge.
Your Root reflects the source; it is the catalyst that starts a particular chain of cause and effect. The Action Key tells you how to respond. And the Outcome shows the probable result.
Lost for many generations, the Diamond's numerological revival over the last 20 years is a result of the research and contemplations of master numerologist Hans Decoz.
Note: For certain ages—including much of childhood—the same guidance covers a wider range than one year/age.
For Madonna Louise Ciccone, Age 44-45
The Challenges are found in the top half of the Diamond.
It could be said that the top half of the Diamond reflects our spiritual evolution, while the lower half, which is where we find the Root, Action Key, and Outcome, tells us of our worldly existence and experiences.
Therefore, the Challenges reveal the true purpose of our struggles from a celestial perspective.
Within the context of reincarnation, the concept is that what we take with us when we leave our human body are certain qualities we earned or enhanced as a result of the life, or lives, we lived on this earth.
You should perhaps think of the Challenges as spiritual quests; inspirations of a divine source that seduce us into learning and growing on a level above and beyond our more worldly mind. And as is befitting spiritual quests, the Challenges tend to be somewhat veiled and subtle.
Madonna, your Challenge for age 44-45 is 2.
Madonna, this challenge is about pushing the boundaries of your perception. As a human being, you are well acquainted with the rumblings of your mind. After all, there is an almost nonstop one-way conversation going on between your mind and you. If you are like most people, you will probably identify with your mind completely - each and every moment of the day. In fact, most of the time you are so emerged in the rumblings of your mind, that you are your mind. There is no distance, no separation.
But every once in awhile, as when you sit quietly and focus inward, another kind of consciousness comes through. And you recognize that your true self lives much deeper within you. That, in fact, the real you is simply listening to your mind. You realize that there is a distance between you and your mind. And this, Madonna, is the kind of understanding that can change your life more dramatically than winning the big lottery. In fact, when this understanding metamorphoses from an intellectual recognition to a full-blown realization, it is much better than winning the lottery. It is a first step to real freedom. Only when one is fully conscious of his or her true Self as separate from the mind, can one accept or discard whatever the mind delivers - which constitutes freedom. When a person is not aware of this separate identity, that person has no choice but to follow the mind in absolute obedience - no questions, no choices, no freedom. Without this separation, it's like one person arguing in front of a mirror.
The Root is the catalyst that sets a chain of events in motion. Based on the concept that we are here on this earth in order to learn and grow, the Root exposes weaknesses or challenges which need to be dealt with. When we acknowledge the Root we have the opportunity to respond, thereby starting on a path of healing and growing.
Madonna, your Root for age 44-45 is 7.
Madonna, your search for spiritual understanding moves to the foreground. Much of this is only marginally conscious. If asked, you may well rebuff this. You don't per se go to church more than usual. On the contrary, it is very possible that you go to church less, or not at all. You have recognized one of the most important lessons a person can learn during this lifetime; that the quest is within you and so is the answer you are seeking. You have changed. How much of this transformation happened consciously is difficult to say.
To use an analogy: You are no longer standing with your back at the sun staring at your own shadow. You are in the process of turning around to look towards the sun. Madonna, what is interesting is that this particular quest does not require much of you. Just don't fight it. Don't become cynical. Don't let sarcasm become your shield against the unknown.
The Action Key represents the guidance we are offered to help us on our path towards mental, emotional, and spiritual growth.
Madonna, your Action Key for age 44-45 is 9.
Madonna, this is a time when you will produce your best results by being less practical and more idealistic. While this may seem a contradiction, it makes sense when you look at it from a larger perspective. You are asked to devote your time and effort to what is important to your heart, not your mind. When we set goals for ourselves that we hope will bring us comfort and security, those objectives are defined by our expectations and the limits we have set for ourselves. It is as if we roll out a path in front of us, a narrow path. The problem is, of course, that we don't know for sure that the destiny we set for ourselves is really what we want. It is, in fact, a reality for many people that once we reach our goals, the rewards don't come close to measuring up to our expectations.
Imagine what it would be like to devote all your energies to creating your perfect environment and reaching those goals you knew with absolute certainty would bring you love, happiness, and contentment, merely to find that you have spent your whole life chasing an illusion. This is a reality for many people, Madonna. You don't want that. And the only way to prevent this scenario from becoming your personal life story is by occasionally stepping away from the path you rolled out in front of you. This is the time to do just that. And the best way to do that is by devoting your energies to the betterment of mankind. Be an idealist for awhile.
Key ingredients for this period are idealism, selflessness, and modesty.
The Root sets us on a path. The Action Key guides us along that path. And the Outcome indicates what it is we find at the end of this path.
Madonna, your Outcome for age 44-45 is 16.
Madonna, you emerge from this Root and Action Key with a stronger sense of faith and spiritual vigor. This is not always obvious. On the contrary, it is not uncommon, especially for people who appeared religious and visited a church regularly, to seem less religious and less faithful to their church now. However, this is the result of a kind of inner metamorphosis; a deeply personal and internal search has brought understanding and clarity - and not always in line with your spiritual path of the past. You have also become more aware of your intellectual potential, as is evident by your renewed interest in schooling.
For some people, this Outcome offers a different and rather negative result in the form of a loss of interest in anything intellectual or spiritual. In extreme cases, there is loss of energy on the physical plane as well. Fatigue syndrome, a lack of motivation, and a pessimistic outlook on life often appear during a 16 Outcome.
