With the Life Path of the number 8 you are:
> Focused on learning the satisfactions to be found in the material world.
> Powerful, confident and materially successful.
> You are apt to be very independent, forceful and competitive.
> Your routine is involved in practical, down-to-earth affairs.
> You will use your ambitions, organizational ability, and efficient approach to carve a satisfying niche for yourself.
> Most of your concerns involve money and learning of the power that comes with its proper manipulation. (I’m not MAKING THIS UP!)
> You are concerned with and desirous of status as an accompaniment to material success.
> You can be dictatorial and often suppress the enthusiasm and efforts of fellow member of the environment.
> The strength of your personality excludes close feelings for other people.
> Material gains and rewards often become issues of utmost importance, even to the neglect of family, home and peace of mind.
> Dedication to success can become an obsession. (Again, not making it up!)
> All Life Path 8 people must avoid discounting the opinions of others.
Sounds like Martha to me, and read that last one. If she hadn’t paid attention to Bacanovic she wouldn’t be where she is now — sounds like numerology knows what it’s talking about!
The best we can hope for Martha is that there’s some other set of numbers that might redeem her in this life.
What’s that you say? She’s been given her official prison numbers?
Let’s just see what Martha’s “prison path” number is using her new barcode 55170-054. In this case we would add the first set of numbers (5+5+1+7+0) to get an 18, which we then reduce (1+8) to a 9. The second set (5+4) also becomes a 9. The two together are 18, which is then reduced (1+8) to a 9. Wow, a lot of nines in there.
So what does this mean for Martha at Alderson?
The keys to the nature of a Life Path number 9 person are:
> Compassion, generosity, and a very humanitarian attitude. This is the lesson that must be learned in this life.
> The 9 produces an individual that is trustworthy and honorable, and unlikely to harbor any sort of prejudice.
> You tend to be quite sensitive, as you see the world with much feeling and compassion.
> The 9, being the highest of the single digit numbers, holds an elevated position and poses certain responsibilities.
> The purpose of life for those with a 9 life path is of a philosophical nature. Judges, spiritual leaders, healers and educators frequently have much 9 energy.
> Material gains are not overly important, although the quality of some life path 9 people is such that they are materially rewarded in very significant ways.
> Often, the number 9 life path requires a very selfless attitude and the giving up of material possessions for the common good.
> You have the ability to make friends very easily, as people are attracted to your magnetic, open personality.
> You have a special gift of understanding people, which if used correctly can be of great benefit to others.

So there you have it Martha. Make friends with the prison bitches — teach, heal, and throw away those silly wicker baskets and the money that comes with them. Everything will be fine, just fine. We’ll see you in five months. Good luck and Godspeed!
