The Art and Science of Numerology

Numerology is a study of numbers in your life. You can uncover information about the world and other people by using numerology.

Numerology is similar to astrology in many ways. Numerology uses numbers to get information and for calculating charts. These numbers are used to help you to better understand the world and yourself.

Finding Meaning In Numbers

Numerology treats the universe as a system like a computer system. The basic elements of the universe are numbers and the universal language is mathematics. A numerologist looks at the many elements of a person and breaks them down into meaningful numbers.

These numbers help you to better understand the world and yourself as an individual. This is where you can discover insights about your life purpose and personality traits.

History of Numerology

It is a mystery where numerology came from.  The earliest written records of numerology are found in Ancient Egypt and Babylon. Numerology also existed in Ancient Rome, China, Greece, and Japan.

Modern-day numerology is credited to Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher. Pythagoras developed many of the calculations behind numerology which took numbers to a completely different level.

Dr. Julian Stenton coined the name ‘Numerology’. He has been an ambassador for numerology in modern-day times.

How Does Numerology Work?

A numerology forecast reveals great depths of meaning about your past, present, and future. The cosmos and your life are influenced by your birth date, birth name, and many other factors.

With simple calculations, you can easily obtain your life path number, and your expression, personality, and soul urge numbers. It is the way that these numbers work together that need to be interpreted properly.

Your name and date of birth influence your characteristics and affect the journey that you take in life. These numbers can also be used like horoscopes in astrology to interpret signs or destinies. Numerology also helps to clarify your astrological chart with additional information.

What a Numerology Reading Reveals

A numerology reading involves a lot of calculations. These calculations go very deep with various meanings being derived from different numbers and combinations of numbers.

A basic reading based on your core numbers reveals a lot about you. Then your numerology chart can continue to be read from many perspectives as an ongoing project.

Your numerology chart will not only tell you about yourself. It helps to provide direction in your life and your wellbeing.

It is your life path, soul, karmic, and destiny numbers that make up your numerology chart. There is spiritual energy associated with these numbers that will influence that aspect of your life.

The cardinal numbers are 1 to 9 and each number has a meaning important to your life.  The master numbers are 11 and 22. These are more intensified versions of their root numbers of 2 and 4. Master numbers suggest a higher degree for learning, achievement, or success in more intense environments.

There are five numbers commonly used in numerology. Each of them is the result of a specific calculation using your birth date or the letters of your name. These numbers make up your numerology chart.

Your Life Path Number

Your life path number tells you about your personality, life achievements and challenges, major opportunities, and how to attain fulfilment and happiness in life.

To find your life path number you add up each digit from your date of birth until you get to a single digit or one of the master numbers (11 or 22).

For example, the date 17/04/1971 would give 1+7=8, 0+4=4, 1+9+7+1=18 and 1+8=9 then 8 + 4 + 9 = 21, and 2 + 1 = 3.

In numerology, communication is the most powerful thing for a 3. This is in the form of creation, gifted expression, and seamlessly sharing innovative and pioneering concepts through art, writing, and oration. Your work inspires, motivates, and uplifts others, and you love making others smile.

Your Soul Number

Your soul number, your heart’s desire number, represents your inner self including what your desires and needs are. It will show you what your true intentions are behind your many choices and influence you to make better choices leading to a greater path in life.

Your soul number is calculated using the vowels in your full birth name. The numerical values that correspond to each vowel as given by numerology are A = 1; E = 5; I = 9; O = 6; U = 3; and Y = 7 (used in numerology, not an actual vowel).

To find your soul number add up the values of the vowels that make up your name. Keep adding until you get a single digit, 11, or 22. For example, the name ‘Timothy Samuel Stokes’ has vowels i, o, y, a, u, e, o, e which translate to 9+6+7+1+3+5+6+5 = 42. Then add 4+2=6.

Love is the most powerful thing for a 6. Caring for others is what gives you satisfaction. You love others just the way you would want to be loved back and it shows how much you sacrifice for others.

Your Karmic Number

Your karmic number tells you about all your hopes, fears, and dreams. When you know the meanings and energies attached to this number then you gain a deeper understanding of not only what your hopes and fears are but also the factors that influence them.

Karmic Lessons are weaknesses that need to be dealt with in this lifetime. They are found by analysing your full name at birth and finding which numbers are missing. Also, the numbers that appear most frequently are your karmic strengths.

Your Destiny Number

Your destiny number, also called your expression number, reveals your true potential and talents. Your destiny number offers insight as to how you will express your greater goals.

To find your Destiny Number, calculate the root number of your full name (first, middle, last) by reducing each name to a single digit, and then adding up the total.

For example, the full name ‘Timothy’ (2+9+4+6+2+8+7=38, which becomes 3+8 =11, and 1+1=2), ‘Samuel’ (1+1+4+3+5+3=17, which becomes 1+7=8), and ‘Stokes’ (1+2+6+2+5+1=17, which becomes 1+7=8) produces a destiny number of 9 (2+8+8=18, and 1+8=9).

In numerology, a 9 is an old soul who is no stranger to life’s ups-and-downs. They can effortlessly synthesize large amounts of information and energy. They psychically connect the dots to form a cohesive whole. A 9 strives to reach their highest state of consciousness and also to help others to achieve this spiritual awareness.

Your Personality Numbers

Add up the values for each consonant in your name to calculate your major personality number. Keep adding until you get a single digit, 11, or 22.

The name ‘Timothy Samuel Stokes’ has consonants ‘tmth’ (2+4+2+8=16, 1+6 = 7), ‘sml’ (1+4+3=8), and ‘stks’ (1+2+2+1=6). Then add up the figures, 7+8+6=21 and 2+1=3. The major personality number is 3.

To calculate your minor personality number you add up the values for each consonant in your shortened name. Keep adding until you get a single digit, 11, or 22.

In the name ‘Tim Stokes’ there are consonants ‘tm’ (2+4=6) and ‘stks’ (1+2+2+1=6). Then add up the figures, 6+6=12 and 1+2=3. The minor personality number is also 3.

Most people with a personality number of 3 are very attractive. When a 3 occurs as the outer personality number it refers to physical beauty. As the minor number, it denotes inner beauty and confidence in one’s appearance.
