Simply put, numerology is the study of numbers and how those numbers reflect certain tendencies and aptitudes. Letters have a numeric value which is linked to a certain cosmic vibration. Using the sum of the numbers in your date of birth and then the sum of the numbers given by the letters in your name, interrelated vibrations are revealed. The information that these numbers provide can provide a great deal of insight into a persons character as well as their life purpose, motivation and hidden talents. Numerologists can use these numbers to discern the best time for making major life changes such as moving home, when to get married or when to make an investment.
Where Numerology came from
Greek mathematician Pythagoras is regarded as being the father of modern numerology, though the practice of using numbers to see what is hidden pre-dates the mathematician by some years. Despite its long history numerology gained new popularity in the early 20th century, its popularity as a method of divination is still as strong today.
There are a number of key number indicators which are used to provide information of different areas, such as life path numbers, destiny numbers, inner dreams number and the hearts desire number as well as a series of master numbers. Eleven numbers are used for the construction of numerology charts 1-9, 11 and 22. Each number is representative of a different character or expression. An individuals birth date is used to generate their life path number. When using a persons name as a basis for numerology it is important that the full birth name as shown on their birth certificate is used.
Each numerology number relates to both positive and negative traits which can be applied to all areas or self, life, relationships and career. Even the day of the month on which you are born is believed to have a bearing on the life path that you will follow. As an example those that are born on the 1st of the month are believed to possess leadership qualities, are filled with self confidence though may have trouble expressing their feelings.
