My Special Guest: Joe Vitale, co-star of The Secret
It's a thrill to introduce my very special guest, Joe Vitale (a fellow 5 Life Path!)
I'd been admiring Joe for years before he starred in the movie The Secret, mostly because I'd been a long-time student of marketing and he's a well known expert in that field. Joe had written some great books on the subject, and after he revealed his spiritual side in The Secret I came to like him even more.
A number of synchronicities led up to the day when I finally connected with him. Basically, his name had been coming at me from everywhere until I said 'Alright, alright, I'll contact Joe!'
And I was delighted when Joe wrote back immediately with his birth information as I'd requested and later gave me his blessing to post his Numerology report online.
But what really blew me away was when he posted a public link to it in his BLOG, directing his thousands of fans straight to my website! (What'dya say? Is that cool or what? It was without a doubt an encouraging moment in my career and still one of my favorite memories to this day.)
So now you know the story, and after you read the following parts of Joe's personal Numerology report you'll know more about him than most people EVER will.
Joe, thank you for using your amazing energy, talents, and 'Danny DiVito-like' humor --- not to mention your very high-level intuitive abilities --- to help make our lives just a tad bit more FUN to live!

A Decoz Numerology Chart Analysis
Joseph Gary Vitale
December 29, 1953
© Copyright 1985, 2003, Hans Decoz.
If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality -- the reality of human life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life.
Your Life Path is 23/5
The key to your personality is freedom. Joe, you love travel, adventure, variety and meeting new people. You possess the curiosity of a cat and long to experience all of life. You love to be involved in several things at the same time as long as you are not tied down to any one area. You like change, new things and new horizons.
You make friends easily; your personality is upbeat and often inspiring, attracting people from all walks of life. You have a way with words and an uncanny ability to motivate others. You can be in sales, advertising, publicity, promotion, politics or any profession that requires your communication skills and understanding of people.
Joe, you likely lack discipline and order. You can also be impulsive, doing or expressing things you regret later. Freedom and a need for adventure sometimes are not properly controlled by those born with this Life Path, causing problems with drug abuse, overindulgence in food or sex, or generally abusing the gift of life. You are sensual and love to taste all of life. Sex, food and other sensory experiences are essential to the enjoyment of your life.
You find it difficult to commit to one relationship, but once committed you can be as faithful as an old dog. You are multi-talented and possess a variety of diverse abilities. However, discipline and focus are the true keys to your success. Without these many of the tasks you begin will remain unfinished and you will fail to realize the true fruits of your abilities. With hard work and perseverance the sky is the limit.
You may have been perceived as a wild child by adults and a source of concern by your family. However, do not be obliged to hurry your choice of career. You are often a late-bloomer and need to experience life before you can truly know and commit to your heart's desire. Joe, your challenge is to learn the true meaning of freedom. Change is constant in your world requiring adaptability and courage. Try to maintain an exercise program, keep your body in shape and limber. The flexibility and durability of your body will promote security and confidence within you.
You yearn for freedom and self-employment attracts you powerfully. Your challenge is to settle into one area to cultivate your ability sufficiently to earn a living and attain success. Once you find your niche the motivation and inspiration you supply others will bring you much in return, you will find your friends and colleagues supporting and promoting you on the road to success.
The day you were born bears great significance in understanding who you are and where your talents lie. The day of birth indicates some special talent you possess.
Your Birthday is 29/11
You are highly intuitive and creative. Joe, your mind thinks in pictures. You seem to draw information and ideas from out of the sky. Your intuition is your gift, along with a powerful drive to know the Oneness of all things. You are so driven by spiritual pursuits that no matter what you do in life, the world of spirit and philosophy will be central to your daily behavior. You feel linked with the larger universal forces, and nothing will change that.
You have a fine mind and keen insights, but these do not come as a result of logic or rational thought. You are more likely to direct your life by inspiration, rather than by calculated reflections.
On some level, you know that you are in the hands of destiny, and that you must surrender to the higher powers that shape your life. You are usually a late bloomer. Your early and middle 30s tend to be years spent in apprenticeship and slow development. During this period, you can become frustrated with your progress, or the apparent lack of it.
Joe, you need to develop faith. You are a highly charged person with much to do, but you must develop character and sound judgment before you begin to tap your true potential. Just as a tree needs roots to grow tall, so, too, do you need to develop depth of character in order to begin to expand in the ways you desire and ultimately envision.
Your highly developed intuition makes you a wonderful counselor, healer, or health practitioner. You have a gift for inspiring people. Many people admire you without your knowing it. You are a visionary, and others sense your wisdom.
You are acutely sensitive and easily influenced by your surroundings. You love beauty and harmony. You crave social interaction and much attention. You can be very emotional, often experiencing extremes of happiness and sadness. You are usually too easily hurt.
You get depressed easily and feel the lack of confidence during times you are in a dark mood. Despite your sensitivity, you possess leadership abilities. You are modest, diplomatic and polite. You have the ability to persuade, and can be quite forceful.
Joe, your high sensitivity to others makes you compassionate, kind, and gentle. You have an opportunity for fame and success as long as you do not pursue either as your gods. Look for ways to help others and convey a larger message, with which you were blessed. This will bring you the material and social fruits you desire.
Your Expression number represents your being; the Life Path is the major lesson you are attempting to learn this time around. By reading the Expression number below, you will come to understand your basic nature and the abilities and issues inherent in your being.
Your Expression is 13/4
You are the bedrock of society, the foundation of any enterprise. Joe, you are an organizer and manager. Your approach to life and to problems is methodical and systematic. You are a builder and a doer. You turn dreams into reality.
You possess a highly developed sense of structure. You enjoy management systems, and can carry out your well laid plans. You are not the type to embark on any trip without a map.
Joe, you take your obligations and those of your family quite seriously. As a result, you are reliable and responsible. You enjoy seeing a project through from start to finish, but can become too narrowly focused. You put your nose to the grindstone and have a tendency to become a workaholic.
You are driven by contempt for all that is unstable, insecure, and unpredictable. You distrust the unconventional, preferring instead the tried-and-the-true. But this can make your endeavors move slowly and cause you much frustration, especially with the apparent limitations of your resources. At the same time, concern for the limitations of your resources causes you to be careful and cautious, shutting you out from possible shortcuts and creative solutions provided by more daring people around you.
It is important that you recognize restrictions for what they are: guiding forces that are testing and directing you toward your goals. Joe, your challenge is to be more imaginative and to attract more creative people into your life who can advise and inspire you.
In relationships, you tend to be somewhat moralistic. You are extremely honest and sincere. You have integrity and are trustworthy, but can also be rigid and stubborn. Don't let your strong likes and dislikes overrule your common sense and compassion. Be more understanding of others' shortcomings.
Because you tend to focus on details, you can fall into a rut and become a little dull and overly serious. Often, people born with the 4 Expression need to lighten up and have more fun.
In your conservative and careful way, you are good with money. You are very conscious of the balance between income and expenditures. You can limit your expenditures; saving money is important to you.
Joe, you are a surprisingly good parent, and love to be involved with children. Somehow, you relate a little more than others to the innocence of children, perhaps seeing a good deal of yourself in them. You, too, are idealistic and respect the simplicity of children.
Many accountants, bookkeepers, government officials, managers, and lawyers are born under the 4 Expression. You can be attracted to the arts and music, but will likely bring your love of structure and order to any artistic field. Classical music and opera are particularly appealing and inspiring for you.
You have a keen eye for detail. You have great stamina and can work conscientiously and persistently toward your goals. This eventually brings you success and standing in your community.
Your Heart's Desire is the inner you. It shows your underlying urge, your true motivation. It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions.
Your Heart's Desire is 25/7
Joe, you love knowledge, study, and insight. You value the gifts of your mind, which you use to great advantage to penetrate the mysteries of life. You study things in-depth. You search beneath the surface of things. You abhor shallow judgments or opinions.
You have a natural gift for analysis and research. Once you have grasped the facts of a subject, your creativity and abstract approach lifts your thinking beyond the rudimentary to the philosophical. You have a theoretical mind, but rather than indulge in fantasies or idle thought, you prefer to base your theories upon scientific facts. Joe, you enjoy mental and physical puzzles -- figuring them out, taking them apart, and putting them back together.
Some people may perceive you as cool or aloof. You are somewhat introverted; you may feel slightly removed and even a little different. The fantasy of the hermit or monk engaged in a life of study and meditation appeals to you.
In relationships, you tend to keep things business-like and impersonal. You prefer to talk about the facts of a given situation, rather than the cloudier issues of emotions and personal feelings. You distrust feelings -- both your own and those of others. The whole emotional realm strikes you as unreliable, and a bit unnecessary.
Joe, your inability to fully understand the emotional aspect of life is your Achilles heel. You are so rational that the unpredictability of the heart frightens and surprises you. Your challenge is to trust. You need to share your heart with someone. This is a courageous step for you, but will result in enormous growth and satisfaction.
The advice here is to make a true connection with another human being. Without it, you may marry out of convenience or to fulfill social expectations, but it will not lead you out of loneliness. The more removed you are from people, the more you risk isolation, bitterness, and a cynical attitude toward life.
This choice represents a true crossroads in your development. By sharing yourself with others (without compromising your independence and need for privacy) you can cultivate your enormous charm and share your understanding of life. You are a natural teacher and advisor. And the wealth of knowledge you will accumulate in life is meant to be shared with others.
This is not to say that you must compromise on your need for privacy or time spent alone to contemplate life. These are natural aspects of your personality, which are essential to your growth. These characteristics should not be threatening to your spouse, but must be understood as fundamental to your being.
Joe, you are blessed with a great reserve of intuition, which can be cultivated by regular meditation and contemplation. Your 'inner voice' is your greatest guide and friend.
You are idealistic and have high expectations for yourself. Learn to balance your serious nature with regular doses of fun.
Your intelligence and cultivation make you charming and distinguished in appearance. As you get older and more comfortable with your identity, people are naturally attracted to you. They see your wisdom, your deep understanding of life, and the refinement you radiate.
Your Personality is 24/6
Joe, you radiate understanding and compassion. People sense your warmth and fairness. For this reason, you attract many people who are in need of comfort, including the disadvantaged. People tend to come to you to unload their burdens. You inspire confidence.
You have a fine sense of justice. You do everything in your power to keep the harmony and are even willing to sacrifice your personal desires for the good of others. You can take this too far, however, sometimes playing the role of the martyr. You have to guard against being taken advantage of. You are not always a very good judge of character. You tend to see the best in others. You also can become too involved in the lives of others, to your own detriment. (This aspect can be balanced by other numbers in your chart.)
You are hospitable and domestic. You love children and are a good parent. You are romantic, faithful and very protective. You are artistic. You love music, flowers and gardening. You are a natural interior designer. You have an excellent sense of color and taste.
Joe, you are more concerned with the content of your personality than your appearance, which causes you to be less conscious of the style of your clothes. You are more interested in comfort and the utility of clothing than the statement it makes.
Six Personality Numbers are exceedingly generous. You are not particularly logical when it comes to finances. You are very vulnerable to praise and criticism. You tend to worry a lot, causing stomach problems.
People see you as a maternal or paternal figure. They want to relax in your presence and unburden themselves. You are the safe port in the crowd.
Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces around age thirty to thirty-five.
Your Maturity is 9
Joe, 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.
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.
The Pinnacles are four long-term cycles, or periods, on our Life Path. Each Pinnacle represents a particular lesson we are working on.
Your First Pinnacle (from birth until age 31) is 5
This is a period that will teach the realities of freedom and expansion. Joe, you will travel great distances, meet many new and interesting people, experience many adventures, and essentially come to know the world. You are in a period of accelerated experimentation and learning. Experience is your teacher.
Your ability with words is greatly increased. You can write and speak with ease. You are also able to successfully promote yourself. In fact, this is the source of much adventure; new opportunities for work, travel, and exotic experiences present themselves with regularity.
Your challenge is to prevent yourself from becoming a rolling stone. You need to ground yourself in a particular discipline, career, or relationship. This will not limit your freedoms so much as give you a base for operation. Otherwise, you may find yourself skipping from one meaningless job to the next, one superficial relationship after another. You can also fall victim to the abuse of food, alcohol, sex, or drugs.
Joe, you may fear being anchored or tied down, which can cause you to skim the surface of a pursuit you enjoy, or important relationships.
You must come to know the true meaning of freedom, which is unconditional love. You give your love and energy without the condition of holding on to a place, a person, or an occupation; and you expect the same in return -- to be loved for what you are, rather than someone who belongs to another. There is a highly spiritual path offering itself that requires detachment without loss of love. Many turn away from this and instead choose to maintain a superficial relationship with the world, or with other people.
You must cultivate your talents, especially your verbal and writing abilities. You are likely a gifted salesperson, or promoter.
You must accept limitations as a necessary base for your freedom. Freedom cannot exist without limitations; otherwise you would be without identity, and without existence.
(*Note: Joe's 2nd and 3rd Pinnacles have been omitted for brevity.)
Your Fourth Pinnacle (from age 50) is 3
This is a highly creative period. Joe, your self-expression is greatly enhanced. Your creative and artistic talents will peak. You should do everything possible to refine these abilities and make the most of them. Many under the 3 Pinnacle are drawn to writing, the theater, singing, and dance. Your chances of success are also heightened. Hard work in any artistic field that one has a talent for can result in much reward.
This is also a highly social and emotional time. You attract friends and admirers with your charm and gregarious nature. You have the ability to inspire and motivate people. Your upbeat energy causes people to want to work with and for you.
This is a lucky period, as well. You can overcome problems with considerably less effort than in the past. All of this can lead to self-indulgence and lack of productivity. Life is a little easier, which can make you less vigilant. You need focus and discipline. Under the influence of this Pinnacle, hard work is the key and the challenge to making the most of your opportunities.
Be careful of impulsive behavior or doing things on a lark. You must know your limits during this period. Be careful of your money; balance your accounts. Guard against disorderly thinking and behavior. Otherwise, you may do things you regret or simply squander away so many opportunities.
Children born under this Pinnacle must be disciplined and kept from being spoiled. An early education in the arts will inspire the child to make the most of his or her artistic talents.
Like most stories, there are three great divisions of our lives: The Third, or final Cycle, can represent a flowering of our inner being, such that our true nature has finally come to fruition. It is during this period that one has the greatest degree of self-expression and power.
(*Note: Joe's 1st Cycle has been omitted for brevity.)
Your Second Cycle (from age 32 until age 58) is 11
A time of spiritual expansion, even illumination. Joe, you will grow in understanding and wisdom. It is not a time to pursue material goals for themselves, but to seek the higher human ideals. There is a temptation, however, to chase after the infinite without grounding yourself in the practical. That must be avoided. Focus your studies and deepen your understanding to the point that your knowledge can be conveyed to others in simple and acceptable terms.
You possess a message or an ability that should be shared with your community, but only through deep personal transformation and improvement of self-expression can this gift be given. The more willing your are to work on yourself, the more good you will do for the world at large. For those who accept and embrace this path, there is much reward, including ample financial support and even fame. There is also the deeper satisfaction of knowing that one has made a contribution to the advancement of others.
Your Third and last Cycle (from age 59) is 9
This is a period in which a broad view of humanity and a sincere concern for the well being of others will be developed. Tolerance, acceptance, and universal love are the goals of this 9 Cycle, and while such perfection will not be fully achieved, the person under this influence will grow toward these ideals.
Humanitarian principles and social service are the keys to personal happiness. All work directed toward the improvement of the general welfare will bring great personal rewards, as well. Hard work directed toward higher ideals is rewarded.
Creative talent is also enhanced, especially when it is joined with some larger social purpose or message. There is an element of sacrifice or letting go, as one is asked to forgive past grievances and let go of negative attachments. The person is being asked to live according to a higher ethical standard, with much spiritual and personal enrichment as his reward.
