Numerology and numbers, it all adds up

What is numerology?

Pythagoras, a great mathematician and philosopher believed that our reality of the Universe; effectively all matter (energy) was mathematical in nature.

Numerologists believe that certain energies are resonated according to a numerical value. As such, numbers carry a great deal of meaning. Compositions of chemicals, days in the week, month or year and even our names have numerical or mathematical values. Numbers mean a lot and say a lot.

When a numerologist does a numerology reading, they use the chart below to ascertain the numerical value of your full name at birth (the exact name on your birth certificate) and the numbers contained in your date of birth MM/DD/YYYY.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z  

These numbers then provide the numerologist with information to create a numerology chart for you, which will include your life path, soul urge (or heart’s desire), destiny (or expression), personality and more.

Numbers, numbers, everywhere

Paying attention to numbers; especially those of synchronistic or repetitive nature that is seen in your environment or in a dream can provide illumination or clues to understanding aspects of self, situations or others.

Listed below are some meanings associated to zero through nine as single digits. If the sum of a number contains two digits, such as eighteen (18), add these two digits together to obtain a single digit (1+8=9). However, also bear in mind the energies associated to each of these numbers as a separate unit. As such, look at the meanings associated to the number “1” as well as “8.”

The Universal Law of Duality (or Polarity) applies. Therefore, the listings below include moderate and/or extreme expressions of the same energies, as well as contradictory. For instance, focusing on self-development is a duality of being self-centered and being aggressive is not inherently a “good” or “bad” trait. It can be interpreted as someone who is assertive and takes action or belligerent and acts with hostility.

Some numbers are similar in nature, such as 6 and 9. Where they differ is in expression. For instance, both numbers are service oriented and humanitarian; however, 6 energy is focused toward family or direct-community, whereas 9 energy is expanded toward global concerns.

Although I don’t do numerology charts, I utilize numerology during my psychic readings, as numbers play a significant role in Tarot cards as well.

Master Numbers

These numbers are not usually reduced to a single digit; however, if their potential is not realized or abused, they can take on attributes of their reduced value or opposition.

With great potential, also comes great responsibility. If one or more of these numbers appear in one’s numerological report, it doesn’t necessarily mean a charmed life. These numbers can indicate tremendous life challenges and a need for greater maturity or wisdom.

If these numbers are present in a numerology report, there is also the temptation to see one self as being “special.” The mere thought of this goes against the truest meaning of these numbers; therefore, one would be acting more as its reduced value, if they believed as much.
