The first vowel in the spelling of your birth name is something of a driving force in your Soul Urge (the number derived from the vowels in your entire name). This is an indication of the direction of your spiritual outlook in life and how you approach such things, as well as your reaction to outer influences. The first vowel represents how one will think, act and behave. If there is an abundance of the particular vowel in the name this can create either great strengths or, it can create areas of difficulty calling for particular attention and effort for improvement.
The ‘sound’ of the vowel also has influence on the manifestation of the letter. Vowels can either be positive, receptive, or dual. Positive vibrations comes from letters that are long vowels such as the ‘A’ in Jane. A receptive vowel would be the short ‘A’ in Janet. A dual vowel would be in a name in which two vowels are together in the spelling of the name, such as the ‘A’ and ‘U’ in Paula. A positive vibration is at its strongest and it is imperative that this vibration is tempered somewhat by the individual; a receptive vibration may be weaker, less dynamic and, a much weaker energy although, at times, it may be too receptive. With a dual vowel, the strength of the vibration would be divided between the two vowels in question. In all situations, look to other facets of the chart in the Major Numbers to more clearly understand the influences.
A – 1. Mental. Planet: Mars. When ‘A’ is the first vowel, you will be authoritative, ambitious, active, strong and forceful. Other attributes may include being progressive, independent, original and adventurous. You will be one who pushes ahead with zeal and enthusiasm holding strong convictions about that in which you believe. This vowel has great emotional content, also. You will be one who has an interest in new things, new ideas, and new concepts especially those that are of your own original creating and conceiving. If you believe in something you will defend your view against the world. You are more likely to accept the advice of others if it re-reinforces your current thinking. In many ways you enjoy being different. You are a person that wants to be the creator of new ideas and you trust yourself to know what is best and hold to the thought that others will eventually follow your lead. At many times you may not care what others think about you or your ideas. Another part of you invites new contacts, opportunities, and activities involving change. You are more inclined to want to break away from the tried and true and enter the world of the unknown. It is important that you guard against being too dominant, or too opinionated and that you avoid any sense of false pride. While it is important that you learn to be tolerant, it is equally important that you don’t lose your individuality. Too many ‘A’s’ in a name may create a domineering and controlling person as well as lending itself to sarcasm, cynicism, intolerance and criticism towards others. There is a health caution in that too many ‘A’s’ may also create health issues with the head.

RECEPTIVE – There may be a tendency of being scatter-brained. You might also be frustrated by life and circumstances in part due to your being an idle dreamer. You may also consider new things without much thought. DUAL – You may hold no true beliefs of your own and consequently give off a false sense of self.
E – 5. Physical. Planet: Venus. When ‘E’ is the first vowel in the name, your relation to the five senses can be deep so you must overcome temptations and excessive indulgences in pleasures of the senses, especially sex. Your relationships and home may suffer because of erratic and changing behaviors brought on by your somewhat impulsive behavior. For those with an ‘E’ as the first vowel, life’s experiences are something of which you choose to partake. It is a letter of experience as it occurs more often than all other letters. This can create an element of needing to expect the unexpected. The versatility of the 5 energy may bring about many exciting adventures and opportunities, and you will remain current and ready for anything. You are not particularly bound by convention and you enjoy being different.

In many instances, there may not be much middle ground. Above all else, you want freedom, yet you should beware of taking hasty action. The 5 energy of the ‘E’ brings much contact with others and a love of travel. At times, you may be too restless and changeable, especially in the realms of love and relationships, as well as in the world of speculation. Too many ‘E’s’ in the name can make one unfocused and unable to maintain anything of length. Money comes and goes and ‘easy come, easy go‘ is a mantra in life.
