Transit Letters and Numerology: Your Name Is Your Fortune

Have you ever wondered why certain things happen to you, or if there is some way to know ahead of time if your finances will improve this year? Numerology provides a unique tool for forecasting the major events in your life; your Letters of Transit.

Along with your Life Cycles, and your Personal Year number, your Transit Letters predict, in a general way, the events which are slated to befall you in life. This practice, though I can’t prove it by any scientific means, can be uncannily accurate when it comes to giving a thumbnail sketch of what life plans for you.

How to Calculate your Transit Letters

Your Transit Letters are based on your birth name; your full name as it was written on your birth certificate. This includes any misspellings and qualifiers (Jr., iii, iv, etc.) that were actually recorded on the original document. Any legal changes to your name, or corrections when recording it later don’t count; only the original birth name is used.

Each word or qualifier in your birth name generates an additional Transit Letter for you at any one time. Also, each name in your birth name has a particular period or cycle which is repeated thought your life as you grow older. This is best illustrated by an example.

Johnny Depp’s Transit Letters

Lets examine actor Johnny Depp’s Transit Letters to see what I’m talking about. First, Johnny Depp’s birth name is ‘John Christopher Depp iii’. This gives him (4) transit letters in affect at any given time in his life; each name producing a letter.

Each letter in the alphabet has a duration which matches it’s fadic addition position in the alphabet.

a = 1, b = 2, … i = 9, j = (10) = 1, k = (11) = 2, … y = (25) = 7, z = (26) = 8.

When we look at a name, we record the corresponding numeric values and get the period of the name.

John = 20 Years

j (1) + o (6) + h (8) + n (5)

Christopher = 67 Years

c(3) + h(8) + r(9) + i(9) + s(1) + t(2) + o(6) + p(7) + h(8) + e(5) + r(9)

Depp = 23 Years

d(4) + e(5) + p(7) + p(7)

iii = 27 Years

i (9) + i(9) + i (9)

He was born in June 1963, so his current age is 43.

His first name has a period of (20) which comes out of his age 2 times, leaving 3 Years. So His first name Transit Letter was ‘j’ from 2003 to June 2004, and will be an ‘o’ from June 2004 through June 2010 (six years.)

His second name has a period of (67) so we count in 43 years as follows:

Christo = 3 + 8 + 9 + 9 + 1 + 2 + 6 = 38 years.

So, his transit letter of ‘p’ began on his 38th birthday in June 2001, and will run until June 2008 (seven years).

His third name has a period of 23 years, which comes out of 43 once, leaving 20 years. So we count in 20 years as follows:

Dep = 4 + 5 + 7 = 16 years.

So his transit letter of ‘p’ began on his 39th birthday (23 + 16) in June 2002, and will run for (7) years when it will be replaced by another ‘p’ which will run for (7) more years until June 2016.

His fourth birth name always gives us a transit letter of ‘i’ throughout his entire life.

So Johnny Depp’s current transit letters are: o, p, p, and I. They remain in force until June 2008 when the o turns into an ‘h’.

This is the process of how Transit Letters are calculated. It’s complex enough that we want to leave it to computers to do the dirty work for us.

What Do they Tell Us?

Different letters have different affects on us, though there are some general guidelines to remember.

Short period letters, such as ‘a’, ‘j’, and ‘s’ call for dramatic changes in your life; they only last a year, but they bring a strong impact.

The following letters are good for business and finances: ‘f’, ‘g’, ‘h’, ‘j’, ‘m’, ‘o’, ‘p’, ‘q’, and ‘z’.

The following letters indicate possible health problems: ‘b’, ‘k’, and ‘t’.

The following letters indicate possible delays and difficulties in our plans: ‘I’, and ‘r’.

Doubled and tripled letters can have negative side affects due to too much of something; they tend to bring out the negatives of excess in whatever they impact.


Your letters of Transit in many ways can be thought of as a simple Tarot card reading for the current period of your life. Three or four different signpost which have limited meaning when taken separately, but tend to be much more meaningful when considered together as a whole.

They, along with your Life Cycle and your Personal Year, form the elements of your Numerology Chart that predict your future.
