The first vertical row or plane (A) is known as ‘The Line or Plane of Idea and Order’. It is also referred to as ‘The Thought Plane’. It reflects the ability of a person to think about new ideas. It also reflects the person’s love of order and method. This plane is therefore even referred to as ‘The Plane of the Planner’.

The second vertical row or plane (B) is called ‘The Line of Plane of Determination and Will’. This vertical row reflects a person’s determination and will to succeed. It also shows a person’s patience and persistence in realizing his goals.

The third vertical row or Plane (C) is called ‘The Line of Plane of Action’. It revolves around the individual’s ability to put his ideas and ability in action and execute them. This plane is therefore also known as ‘The Plane of Action’ or ‘The Plane of Activity’.

Every Number in an individual’s birth chart conveys a meaning. The main work of any numerologist is to understand the potential created by each number individually and thus the total strength or weakness inherent in a chart. This strength or weakness in a chart (3 × 3 grid) is collectively accumulated by all the numbers present (or missing in the 3 × 3 grid) in any individual’s date of birth.
