Attempt at Numerology Reading for Severus Snape, part 6

At last! The final installment in my numerology reading for Severus Snape. It's about time....

There are also four major phases in each life. These are the peaks in one's life, or the Pinnacle Phases. Using the calculation rules provided by http://www.astrology-numerology.com/num-pinnacles.html, Severus's phases are as follows:

Pinnacle Peaks (if born in 1959) =

  • phase 1 from ages 0 to 29, number 1

  • phase 2 from ages 30 to 38, number 6

  • phase 3 from ages 39 to 47, number 7

  • phase 4 from ages 48 to death, number 7

Pinnacle Peaks (if born in 1960) =

  • phase 1 from ages 0 to 28, number 1

  • phase 2 from ages 29 to 37, number 7

  • phase 3 from ages 38 to 46, number 8

  • phase 4 from ages 47 to death, number 8

Here are the meanings for the above pinnacle types:

first period 1 -- "With a number 1 first pinnacle, most of your youth was probably spent learning how to use original ideas, how to lead, how to rely on yourself without being egotistical, stubborn, self-centered or dominating. This is a period to learn leadership and it may not product the opportunities you would like. It is primarily a learning time." This is the reading regardless of which birth year is correct.

second or third 6 -- "In this period of your life you can progress and achieve through the acceptance of increasing responsibility and through diplomatic acts. Home and family with generally take precedence over business, however. It is a period for you to attend to the demands made on you for family and close friends rather than self. Often, the six pinnacle suggests a person who is under the close dictates of some authority figure." Though I don't think he was born in 1959, Severus might have been under the close dictates of Dumbledore and might yet be under the close dictates of Voldemort....

second or third 7 -- "Unless you are involved in some sort of research or possibly religious or philosophical endeavors, your progress during this pinnacle will be painfully slow. Your accomplishments are simply not the type that bring financial benefits as desired or expected. The benefits of this pinnacle are much deeper and internal." Here I think this reading makes more sense for the second pinnacle in the "1960" reading than for both 3rd and 4th for the "1959" reading. It can be said he is involved in a religious or philosophical endeavor.... He doesn't seem to make much money, and though we don't see him making much spiritual improvement, we must accept that we don't see much of anything from his point of view...yet.

fourth 7 -- "With a number 7 fourth pinnacle, your later years will be a quiet time when you will be chiefly involved with the development and refinement of your inner being. This is a time for study, development, and thinking about life in philosophical ways. During this period it may not be easy for you to find individuals with whom you truly feel comfortable unless your spouse has similar attitudes. Be patient for people will come to you for what you know." This sounds more like Dumbledore.... Severus does seem similar to Dumbledore in some ways, but we don't know if he will ever follow in Dumbledore's steps when it comes to "refinement of the inner being". Would Severus be appoachable enough for someone to ask for his advice?

second or third 8 -- "During this period of your life you are apt to become very deeply involved with being a executive (or perhaps being married to one). You will begin to rely more on rational feelings and less on emotional impulses. You are more ambitious and success oriented." Despite Severus's complaint to Harry (and Narcissa...and everyone else, it seems) about weak people wearing their hearts on their sleeves, when Severus gets worked up his emotions also show, even though the deeper reasons might be hard to determine. Perhaps he will let his old grudges go? As the true Slytherin he is, Severus does have some form of ambition...we're just not sure of his ultimate goals...are they "good" or "evil"? We can take a page from Sirius's book (those little pearls of wisdom Sirius himself doesn't really use) and consider that Severus's goals are of a purely neutral nature.

fourth 8 -- "With the number 8 fourth pinnacle, business and position will make retirement at the normal age unlikely. Circumstances in the later years may be an atmosphere of status and power." This makes me worry if his rival is really Voldemort.... Does he hope to be the next Dark Lord, or will he ultimately follow a similar path to Dumbledore's, following the process of spiritual alchemy?

The last portion of this reading looks at Planes of Expression. This is about temperment and personality, so what can we find out here about the most-hated professor at Hogwarts (besides Delores Umbridge)? Again, I'm assuming his full name is Severus Tobias Snape.

Following the directions found at http://www.astrology-numerology.com/num-planes.html, we get these results:

Planes of Expression =

  • 4 Mental

  • 3 Physical

  • 9 Emotional

  • 2 Intuitive

  • 8 Creative/Inspired

  • 9 Dual/Adaptive

  • 1 Grounded/Balanced

He's a combination of Creative and Adaptable, so my source site says, "The combination of most of the letters in the creative and Adaptable mode suggests that you are a person who is inclined toward constant activity, but this activity must provide variety and change. Your efforts are directed at the here and now, but decision-making can sometimes be a problem. You are likely to act immediately on issues that come to your attention, but not without paying attention to the lessons from the past. Sometimes, you may dwell on the past a little too long. Positively expressed, creative letters produce constructive initiative, while the Adaptable tone allows you to always be flexible. You are able to fit easily into most situations, and you produce results wherever you fit in. You are devoted rather than ambitious."

He also has a general absence of Grounded expression, and my source site says, "Because your chart is void or nearly void in Grounded letters, you may be better at starting things than finishing them. Either you become bored with something soon after beginning it, or you take on so much that you don't have the energy or focus to accomplish anything. You may have difficulty in various aspects of your life, frequently changing jobs, lovers, residences, and even your beliefs and ideas on many of life's weightier issues."

  • Mental = 22%, weak. "Your name suggests that mental assertiveness is not paramount in your makeup. No matter how strong your intellect may be, you have trouble giving way to cold logic, facts and pure reasoning arguments. It may be hard for you to stay interested and motivated in mental disciplines. With limitations here, you may shun the idea of taking charge and calling all of the shots. You act on feel and experience, rarely stopping long enough to think things through carefully. Your hunches may take you further than others relying on proof."

  • Physical = 17%, weak. "Your name suggests that physical or material interests are not paramount in your makeup. You would never pride yourself as being a very practical person. Indeed, your behavior may be anything but realistic and you really don't care. You may actually lack a solid sense of physical discipline and tend to avoid tedious and repetitive work when you can. It's hard for you to turn your many ideas into hard reality. Playing the game and competing at any significant level may be foreign to your nature."

  • Emotional = 50%, strong. "The emotional plane is very strong in your makeup. Indeed, your point of view usually contains significant portions of emotion and imagination without much concern for the facts of the matter. It's easy for you to get carried away sometimes. You are very original and creative and you care deeply for causes you embrace. You are extremely sentimental, sympathetic and caring. Your direct expression of friendship, affections and love make it clear where you stand." But when does he show any direct expression of friendship, affections and love? First we have to decipher his true feelings when he shows them...and Jo's made that near impossible...so far.

  • Intuitive = 11%, weak. "Your name suggests that intuitional or spiritual interests are not paramount in your makeup. So called intuitive awareness, psychic or otherwise spiritual matters aren't of much interest to you as you go about your daily tasks. The idea of developing inwardly pretty much leaves you cold. If there is an inner voice, you don't have much trust in it." This doesn't bode well for Severus to follow in Dumbledore's footsteps. I do hope he isn't trying to follow or surpass Voldemort....

Well, that's the end of it! Feel free to comment about my numerology reading. I accept praise, questions, and even the old insult "you're nuts!" Actually, I don't take much offense at this observation :)
