What is Numerology; with numerologist Hans Decoz

The 16 Karmic Debt – in any area it appears in a chart - means destruction of the old and birth of the new.

The 16 is about the fall of the ego and all it has built for itself. It is a watershed, a cleansing. Things the ego has constructed to separate a person from the source of life, are destroyed.

Through the 16, reunion with higher consciousness may be achieved. This can be a painful process because it usually comes after much ego inflation, resulting in a struggle between the ego and higher ideals.

Life will present challenges to your grand plans which you may resent and struggle against. It is a losing battle… and you will likely feel humbled in the face of the collapse that follows. However, humility is the key to later success, as you learn to follow the intimations of a deeper reality.

In the destruction of the old, an inner rebirth takes place with an entirely new awareness. This rebirth affects every area of your life - a far better life for the fall.


Those with the 16 Karmic Debt must be careful of egoism.

Often, those with the 16 use their highly intuitive and refined intellect to look down on others. This can cause acute alienation and loneliness. In addition, it invites retribution, for the egotist is humbled more harshly than any other.

When the 16 is found in one of the core numbers, the process of destruction and rebirth is a continual cycle that serves to bring you into higher consciousness and a deeper connection to elevated ideals.

The 16 Karmic Debt can be a path of progress and great spiritual growth if it is viewed properly. One develops faith in life by broadening a limited outlook, listening (expanding intuition), questioning old ways, and staying open to a new path.


The great pitfall you face is the choice of becoming aloof and critical.

This will result in alienation and even bitterness. You can also easily lift off the ground, becoming impractical and dreamy. If you indulge too much in flight of fancy, you may drift from reality and give up the possibility of earning an adequate living.

The 16 excellent intuition, not unlike the Master number 11, and may even possess psychic ability. Trust your intuition and use it as a guide in life. But always, be practical in your application of your insights.

With a Karmic Debt 16, you can easily lose interest in your projects and must work hard to finish what you start. You must have faith and let opportunities come your way.

You are sensitive and feel deeply, but you don't share your feelings easily, nor do you communicate them well. The realm of the heart troubles you for its shifting, nebulous qualities. You must work hard to understand this area of life.
