Today we’re going to dive into the meaning of the number zero and come up with one or two ideas for things we can say in a Lo Shu reading.
(Insert screeching noise here.)
Wait a minute, the number zero? Everybody knows you don’t use the number zero in Lo Shu readings! It’s basically an anti-number. You just toss out all the zeroes.
Yes, you’re right. Absolutely. And if you’re intent on staying to the strict traditional Lo Shu grid, you can skip this post.
But if someone comes to me with the birthdate 10/30/2000 there are more zeroes in that number than there are other digits. And I think that deserves comments of some kind.
So when the number 0 comes up in a way that makes it hard to ignore, what do you do and how does that apply to a person?
0 = Success
In Julian Moore’s book, Speed Learning Numerology, which is the book that taught me Lo Shu, he doesn’t show using zero in a reading, but he talks about the number 10 meaning Success, and I’m transferring that to the digit zero.
So if a person has success as a trait, what kind of person are they? Since success can be measured in many different ways, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this, but I like to combine it with whatever numbers in their grid have duplicates, or whatever positive arrows are present.
For example, if a person has multiple twos, or cooperation, the zeros show they will have great success in that area. If they have positive arrows, they will have great success in those areas. (If they only have negative arrows, unless I can spin it as a positive trait, I won’t say that the zeroes enhance it. But that’s just me.)
Your homework: Once again, do some brainstorming and see if you can come up with more ideas about someone with the Success character trait. Then write up a couple sentences that you could say during a reading. You don’t need to memorize them, but if you write them out they’ll be *much* easier to recall when you’re doing an actual reading.
