Maturity Number, sum total of birth date and birth name, gives us a clue as to what our ultimate life purpose might be. Realizing the potential of this number is a key to inner fulfilment in our maturity.
A Maturity number of 1 signifies that you need to live your life with originality and courage. This is the number of the loner, not because these types don’t like people but because others tend to slow them down. Reluctant to arrest their pace long enough to teach and encourage others, ones tend to lead by example. People with 1 as a Maturity number must have the freedom to move and act alone without having to confer with others before doing so. They need to define themselves as unique individuals in their own right, breaking new ground as they find their own way.
The number 1 is the archetype of the Hero. Ones need to challenge and be challenged, and so they attract situations that demand assertiveness and bravery. Ideally this involves defending the weak and fighting for what is right. Ones have little trouble facing off against someone who has offended them.
