CALCULATING THE MATURITY NUMBER.
Add your Life Path number and your Expression number and reduce the total to a single digit, except in the case of a Master number, to find your Maturity number.
In Tom’s case, his Life Path is a 1, his Expression a 4. This adds to a 5 Maturity number. The Maturity number is shown inside two concentric circles on a triangular base.

THE MEANING OF THE MATURITY NUMBERS.
Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces around age thirty to thirty-five. This underlying goal begins to emerge as you gain a better understanding of yourself. With self-knowledge comes a greater awareness of who you are, what your true goals in life are, and what direction you want to set for your life. This, in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity: You no longer waste time and energy on things that are not within your own special identity.
No matter what your age is at present, your life is being channeled in a specific direction, toward a very specific goal. That goal can be seen as a reward or the fulfillment of a promise that is implicit in your current efforts, often without your knowing it consciously. While the characteristics of this number are usually visible during childhood, we tend to lose sight of these aspects until later in life. But our lives are always being affected by this influence, nonetheless.
Your Maturity number begins to have a more profound impact on your life after the age of 35. The influence of the number increases steadily as you grow older.
As you mature, you will find yourself needing an increasing amount of independence and individuality. You will fight harder for the recognition and rewards you feel you deserve and will be less willing to accept failure or limitations in any form.
Your drive and determination will grow, as does your ability to take charge.
If there are already several 1s in your chart, especially among the core numbers, you will have to strive to avoid becoming bossy, rigid, stubborn and selfish. A person who allows these characteristics to run free will become bullish and lonely later in life.
If there are not many 1s in your chart, the influence of the Maturity Number will help you to establish your independence and success. From this foundation, you will have an active, adventurous, and exciting latter part of life.
As you mature, you will discover that you possess a growing talent for understanding and working with other people. Your ability to influence others through tact and diplomacy will grow. These talents will further you along in your career or business. You will become increasingly shrewd, and will learn the art of discrimination. Your sensitivity to the needs and desires of others improves dramatically. You will be able to evaluate their motivations with a growing clarity and uncanny accuracy.
You find you can get more done by persuasion and gentle guidance than by force.
You may well have to learn to assume the role as the power behind the throne. Your influence is less public, and you may not always receive the public recognition you deserve. However, your satisfaction comes from seeing the fruition of your own ideas come about, the result of teamwork and cooperative efforts.
If you already have many 2s in your chart, especially in the core numbers, you may become overly sensitive, a characteristic you will have to keep in check. If you have few 2s in your chart, the influence of your Maturity Number will greatly increase your ability to work harmoniously with other people.
As you mature, you will find yourself becoming increasingly extroverted and optimistic about your future. Your self-expression and creativity improve markedly. You may become inspired to take up some type of artistic endeavor, such as writing, acting, or music, if you are not already involved in one of these areas.
Your ability to communicate will substantially improve. You are naturally more fluent and may find yourself dressing with a certain flair. Be careful not to fall victim to superficial appearances, or chasing after glamour and extravagance.
With a 3 Maturity Number you can look forward to a pleasant and social latter part of life. Your attitude will be increasingly positive and your popularity will rise.
If you already have several 3s in your chart, especially in your core numbers, you may have a tendency to scatter your energies and take your responsibilities less seriously. If you have few 3s, or are missing 3s entirely, you will experience a great relief from the tension and seriousness of life. You will be more relaxed and capable of enjoying life.
The 3 Maturity Number is a blessing in the latter part of life. It promises enjoyment, close friendships, and much happiness.
Your maturity will find you increasingly practical, organized, and far more down to earth. You will be capable of putting your ideas into concrete form. Your latter days promise to be a time of accomplishment and activity.
You become more focused and goal-oriented and less willing to discard details and cut corners. There is little interest in a quiet retirement. You are too involved in seeing your plans and efforts come to life.
Your family and friends will profit from your four maturity number because of your increasingly helpful and reliable nature.
However, you must guard against becoming rigid, narrow minded, and opinionated, especially if already several fours are found in your chart. If you are lacking 4s, or have only one or two of them, you will benefit by your increased understanding of systems, organization, and the rewards of a methodical approach to life.
It will do you good to take your time to relax and enjoy the flowers every day.
There is no slowing you down as you enter maturity. Your influence grows as you become more dynamic and versatile. You now begin to realize your lifelong goal of freedom.
There will be travel and adventure, exciting and unexpected events. Your originality, creativity, and verbal abilities grow stronger.
You will become interested in areas you never before considered. You may have a tendency to become restless and impatient. You may quickly lose interest or become bored with projects that progress slowly. Perseverance is tested, especially because you may find it easy to abandon things that no longer hold your interest. You will have to work to maintain your concentration, discipline, and focus. Do not scatter your energy over to many interests.
This is especially the case with people who have several 5s in their chart, especially among the core numbers.
For those with few fives, the increasing ability to adapt to change and the willingness to take risks provides much spice to life.
As you mature, you will become increasingly concerned with the well-being of family, friends, and community. You will be drawn to the role as healer, counselor, and teacher. You have a growing ability to give comfort and sound advice to those in need.
You naturally assume the role of patriarch or matriarch of those in your care, no matter how old they are. You become more responsible and protective. You may well become involved in environmental protection, volunteer work or politics.
You are naturally idealistic and strive to realize those ideals as you grow in maturity and in personal resources.
Your careful and balanced approach to business and financial matters provides you with sound and secure success later in life. The 6 maturity number provides an outstanding financial foundation for the future.
In addition, the influence of the 6 promises an old age surrounded by loved ones.
For those who have few 6s in the chart, or none at all, this Maturity Number promises the close relationships that you have strived for most of your life.
As you mature, you will become increasingly occupied with the larger questions of life, reading, contemplating and searching for a deeper understanding of who you are and what this life is all about.
You may turn to philosophy or religion, but will likely examine a wide array of areas, broadening your knowledge in many disciplines.
Your intuition grows stronger, as does your ability to look beneath the surface of every subject you study. You are able to analyze abstract questions and live according to your higher ideals.
You may find yourself needing more time alone; your need for privacy will likely increase.
If you already have several sevens in your chart, you will have to guard against becoming withdrawn, and alienated.
If you have no sevens, you will now have the ability to deepen your understanding of one particular field. You will have the opportunity to become grounded in a particular area of study.
As you mature, you will grow in success and financial reward. You will find yourself deepening your commitment to your work. You will find it easier to overcome difficulties that manifest in your path. Your capacity to use power will grow; you will be recognized as a pillar of influence and dependability within your community.
You will have to be strong and self-disciplined to avoid sudden painful material losses. Beware of ego-inflation, the surest symptom of an imminent fall.
The 8 Maturity Number requires a certain degree of detachment from material success; otherwise it will rule your personality, and make money an obsession. Detachment allows you to remain focused on the higher values of mankind. One of your important motivations should be a desire to build, create, or market in order to enjoy the game of business.
Your wisdom and sheer common sense are recognized by many and will attract important positions. It is possible that you will be given responsibility for the care and management of other people's property. You may also be asked to guide large institutions.
If you already have several 8s in your chart, especially in the core numbers, you will have to guard against selfishness, accumulation for the sake of status, and greed. If you have few 8s in your chart, or none at all, your opportunity to achieve the success and financial independence is greatly increased.
Your concern for the well being of society will grow more powerful as you come to maturity. You will be drawn to doing much public service. The long-term good of your community and even the world will occupy your thoughts increasingly.
As you mature, your appreciation for the arts and beauty in any form will also increase. It is quite possible that you will be actively involved in the arts, if that is not already the case, often as a benefactor.
Service to humanity is fundamental to your life. You will grow in understanding and wisdom as you mature. Involvement with international affairs or humanitarian service offers you much satisfaction.
If you already have several 9s in your chart, especially among the core numbers, you will have to guard against arrogance, aloofness, and alienation.
If you have few 9s in your chart, or none at all, you will gain a sense of your personal place among the human race. You will feel you belong and that you have provided something of lasting value for the future.
