#8 Mary Adams Lloyd, numerologist

Marc Jones lists this lady as a numerologist; nothing else is known. Her ascendant is 03.14 Cancer that is rounded up to 04 Cancer.  It gives the Hyperion symbol of a “young boy learning the teaching of moksha,” the Hindu and Jain concept of aim of life is to follow one’s path in life via dharma (virtuous, proper, moral life), artha (material prosperity, income security, means of life), and Kama (pleasure, sensuality, emotional fulfillment).  By doing this, one can liberated from samsara cycle of death and rebirth.

                                           An inspirational lady

It is a rather apropos symbol for a woman who was dedicated to numerology, as that is one of the prime principles of that esoteric science as well – freedom from the di-stress of life.  She is a see-saw temperament  with Uranus in the second house showing her unusual spirit towards being self-reliant.  Her moon is opposite her Jupiter in the tenth house, suggesting that she did have some modicum of success in her career, but we cannot say that it was in numerology, but Jupiter is in Pisces, where it is exalted, does suppose that.  Also supporting that idea is that her Saturn is exalted in Capricorn in the eighth and sextile the Moon saying that she had a knack for numbers but alas her underlying constitution was not robust.

                 Something about Numerology

In numerology, all numbers are first diminished to the single digits of 1 through 9 aside from the master numbers 11 and 22. Each of these numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22) speak to a vibrational  rates that gives direction for different aspects of one’s life.

Using this standard chart, so get the numerological value of Mary’s first name we add the numerical values of each letter that compose it.  M = 13/4   A=1   R=18/9   Y= 25/7.  The full value of Mary’s name is  57 which is considered the Source.  The value of the consonants produces the Personality, and is shown below the name in the numerology chart

Typically as the chart above shows we collapse the numbers, so M which is the 13th letter of the alphabet becomes 4.  A is the first and remains unchanged; R is the eighteenth letter of the alphabet and becomes 9 and y is the twenty five letter of the English alphabet and becomes 7.  We add up the collapsed numbers of 4 + 1 + 9 + 7 = 21.  The full value of  57 that is then broken into its two components of 5 +7 and then summed for a resultant  12.  This component number is then also broken down into 1 + 2 which is in turn summed.  The process continues until one gets a number under 9.  Here we get 3.

Pythagoras the Greek who created this system called this number  “the One and the Many” because it is composed of both 1 – the one and 2 – the many.

Mary’s birth name is 3 that gives her a cheerful humour and enthusiastic manner.  Three is a creative number, but leads to boredom, impulsivity and jealousy if her bad side is allowed to foster.  This shows the strengths of numerology, as in all the esoteric sciences, that it is a tool  to know the bad side  and foster the good so one can reach their potential.  Of course it is based on the premise that one wants that.

If everyone breaks down to 1-9 that would make numerology rather simplistic.  But there are many numbers that numerology uses and one is her full name which we already know is 57.  That has its own vibration  that means that she will work hard to make negative condition better and  she has a knack at understanding people’s troubles and a desire to help them through it.  5 is a number that always wants to know how other people feel and understand their own experience while the number 7 seeks perfection they work together in 57 differently than they would in 75..

Once someone has their Name number they then look at other numbers in their life to make sure that they are harmonic with each other as that should give them the greatest aid in making their potential.

I discovered numerology from the old Dell books sold at the grocery stand, and through that realized that my name was not in harmony with other numbers in my life, so I changed it.  I would not be surprised if Mary Adams had not done the same.

#454 Calling the astrologer Herschell

Attached is his chart and the header picture is of Frome, England. Who is he we found no clues except that Astrotheme.org cites Jones. If his map is to be trusted, Herschell was a bright fellow with fine taste. His ascendant at 14 Taurus is the same as Annie Besant’s North Node and conjunct the fixed star Alpherax that the Kepler software does not show.   Alpherax is supposed to bestow  fine speaking abilities and  many good friends. His chart shows no fire so that rather helps in being amiable.

The preponderance in the seventh house is similar to von Hindenburg’s but that’s about all they have in common. Herschell is a see-saw temperament and an enigma.

The Cobra and Karel Appel

The Dutch artist Karel Appel,  died at the age of 85, famously declared that “If I paint like a barbarian, it’s because we live in a barbarous age” – the sentiment of a man who had reached adulthood at the beginning of the second world war. Yet, like other members of that shortlived but celebrated movement of radical artists and intellectuals, the Cobra group, he absorbed a variety of intellectual and artistic influences, out of which developed a frenetic style of sweeping brushstrokes and vibrant, even lurid, colours.

Appel’s Questing children, 1949

Cobra was an acronym of “Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam”, reflecting the origins of its members, Appel’s painting of smiling yet sinister children spoiled so many municipal appetites that his sales plummeted but in 995 a museum dedicated to Cobra was opened in the Dutch town of Amstelveen, and in 2001 Appel’s 80th birthday was celebrated by retrospectives across Holland.

His grandfather Hamilton Fish Kean and great-uncle John Kean both served as U.S. Senators. His second great-uncle was Hamilton Fish, a U.S. Senator, Governor of New York, and the 26th U.S. Secretary of State. His most illustrious relative was William Livingston, a delegate to the Continental Congress and the first Governor of New Jersey — Governor Kean and his wife live in Livingston, New Jersey still.

#98 Stock Market Wizard: Roger Babson

“More people should learn to tell their dollars where to go instead of asking them where they went.”  Roger Ward Babson, economist


Mr. Babson is a  Splash temperament type with a fixed Cosmic Grand Cross in his chart making him very persistent with things.  We rectified his Ascendant to 10 Sagittarius,  giving him a noble and honorable character with great self-confidence.  It is a common fire sign ruled by Jupiter, that is found in his tenth house of career and outward purpose.  Sagittarius is also the sign of the “gambler” though it is doubtful that Mr. Babson would have thought of him as such, with his Saturn at 26 Cancer in the second house, but most think of investing as a form of high-stakes poker.

For Babson though, investing and market forecasting was a science, and a statistical one at that.  Saturn in the second house is in its essential house, which helped him take an obscure mathematical construct used before him for crop reports, and make it into an advanced quantitative tool for analyzing numerical facts.  Sextile Neptune in Taurus in the fifth house of creative offspring, Babson was able to take those ideas and make them something concrete and useful.  Pluto is also in the fifth that gave him impetus to tie his name and standing with his invention thus making it integral to his identity (Pluto is also trine his Part of Fortune).

Babson married twice.  The first time for 56 years and the second for a little under ten.  He had no children and many think that Neptune in the fifth house denotes that, but he did leave lots of honorary children through Babson College.  It is quite impressive, click here on Wikipedia to read the list of illustrious alumni.


Roger Ward Babson was bron in the seagoing town of Gloucster Massachusetts and was educated as an engineer at Boston’s MIT.  It was during a bout of tuberculosis that he taught himself statistical analysis.   Realizing that statistics was an unknown field, he bought a typewriter, and developed a market index based on Newton’s law of action and reaction (lower prices must follow higher prices and vice versa).

  • In 1904 he founded the Babson Statistical Organization, Inc., whose business and financial statistics, published in Babson’s Washington Service, were sold in the United States, Great Britain, and Canada.
  • In 1919 he established Babson Institute (now Babson College), in Massachusetts, and in 1927 he founded Webber College, in Florida.
  • And in 1929 he was the lone wolf who called the Stock Market Crash and publicly announced his findings in the New York Times on Friday, September 6th, 1929.  His great competitor, Irving Fisher, disagreed.

Wise investors will pay up their loans and avoid margin speculation at this time because a “crash” of the stock market is inevitable. Roger Babson, statistician, said today before the sixteenth National Business Conference at Babson Park, Wellesley.

What of the future?” he went on. ”Sooner or later the stock market boom will collapse like the Florida boom. Some day the time is coming when the market will begin to slide off. sellers Will exceed buyers. and paper profits will begin to disappear. Then there will immediately be a stampede to save what paper” profits than exist.”

Investment trusts will first bcgin to sell. They have so broadly advertised their paper profits & will very anxious to cash in on them. ‘

“As-soon as word gels abroad that the large American investment trusts are selling, the European houses will begin to sell out their customers who are now buying in the American market.

The general public will then follow with a desire to cash in. then margin. accounts will be closed out, and then there may be a stampede for selling which will exceed anything that the Stock Exchange has ever witnessed.

One thing more to remember: Thus far there has been few. deaths among those with very large stock holdings. Before. long these. men will begin to die. and their holdings will be put on the market. This especially .applies to: public utility stocks.” Mr. Babson advise investors to buy bonds, but was bullish on gas stocks

In 1940 he was the Prohibition Party’s presidential candidate, polling 57,812 votes (the highest it ever got).  The party got started out of the temperence movement of the previous century and was founded in Michigan by John Russell, Methodist preacher, in 1869. Though women in the USA did not have the right to vote until 1920 when it was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson, the Prohibition Party allowed them to be members and vote at their conventions.

Babson was the author of many books on finance and investment, among the best known of which are Business Barometers (1909, 10th ed. 1961), Investment Fundamentals (1930, 4th ed. 1948), and If Inflation Comes (1937).

#938 Eight foot high and counting – Bob Wadlow

Robert Wadlow (Born Robert Pershing Wadlow on 22 February 1918 – died 15 July 1940) is the tallest person in medical history for whom there is irrefutable evidence. He is often known as the “Alton Giant” because he was born in Alton, Illinois

bob wadlow.png

Robert Wadlow reached 8 feet 11.1 inches (272 cm) in height and weighed 490 pounds (220 kg) at his death. His great size and his continued growth in adulthood was due to hypertrophy of his pituitary gland which results in an abnormally high level of human growth hormone. He showed no indication of an end to his growth even at the time of his death.  He is an hourglass temperament type and his chart sorrowfully depicts his thwarted ambitions:  at his death he was studying for the law.
