Question: “According to Numerology, does your name affect your success in whatever you choose to do in life ? I ask because when I was married a million years ago, I changed my birth name to my husband’s name and life was very easy and things always went my way.” —Tami
Greer: Oh good question Tami. Unfortunately, there is no perfect formula for the best life:) Your name just gives you a special “energy”. In numerology, birth names, married names and nick names assist in giving us a unique outlook on life. Does it feel like your name energy is out of date? Yes of course, our parental upbringing, DNA, and personal experiences have an effect on us, but numerologists believe that your numbers have a big influence on how we see and act in the world.
Did you keep your married name? In numerology, there are many things to keep in mind when looking at a name chart. The birthday reflects your destiny and also gives you an indication of what inspires you and what the theme of each year is. The name gives us many variables of our soul’s essence, what we are attracted to and how we express ourselves. Read more about understanding how numerology works.
Does your birth name affect your success or should I change my name?
Martha Kostyra (born 1941) – a smart and very successful woman with a powerful 8 destiny. Since 13, she was a model. During college at Barnard, she met her husband, Andy Stewart. So Martha got married in 1961 and became Martha Stewart.
Yes Martha is brilliant and would have been successful no matter what her name was, but Martha Stewart became a household name and multi-billion dollar franchise long before and after her divorce in 1990. And yes, the name has a better roll off the tongue sound, but also has an easier vibration of success and being out there in the world. See Martha Stewart chart below.
Martha Stewart Numerology
Martha has an 8 destiny. (8+3+1+9+4+1=26. 2+6=8) This is the destiny of power, success and abundance. The charismatic leader that is not afraid to be out there making a difference. Her catalyst or “inspiration” number is a master 11. So what inspires her on her 8 journey is to lead and inspire others. Be it creating an empire and household franchise or coming into your home through TV and showing her audience how to make Easter eggs that look like jewels, Martha has proven success.
Lets take a look her maiden name, Martha Kostyra. Maybe not as easy to pronounce as Stewart, but there is more to the vibration of a successful name than the sound.
As Martha Kostyra, notice that there are 8s and 7s in the name’s Soul’s essence and expression numbers. As I previously mentioned, the 8 represents a powerful and successful leader. The 7 however is close to opposite in energy. The seven wants to be left alone. The seven looks at life in a spiritual thought provoking way. They are the non-conformists and can also be introverted, appearing mysterious because you cannot always understand where they are coming from. So there is a push-pull in the Martha Kostyra name. And doesn’t Martha appear a bit mysterious and reserved?
As Martha Stewart all has changed. Looking at the chart above, notice an 8 soul number (powerful and successful leader)/6 Value system (attracted to all matters of the heart and home)/5 Expression number (charismatic people person). All these numbers have the energy to help an otherwise mysterious celebrity be out there in the public eye.
