Numerology is a divination tool that works with numbers. Each number, from 1 to 9, has a particular meaning or energy.
You use the numbers relating to your birthdate and your name to determine which numbers have particular relevance to you.
Numerological divination can be used to determine your Life Path, your lucky numbers, your major life challenges, and much more. Along the lines of astrology, it points out major forces that you came into this life with.
It's interesting to note that early mathematicians, like Pythagoras, frequently practiced numerology!
Numerology is one of the divination methods that do not require any psychic abilities.
There are different ways to calculate both your name and your birth numbers, to learn different aspects of your life. For instance, adding just the numbers of your first name tells you about relationships in your life.
There are too many variations to go into full details here. This article is merely an introduction to the fairly complex subject of numerology.
Here's how numerological divination works...
Your Name Number
Your name number shows your basic characteristics, your talents, and what you want from your life.
To find your name number, you use your full birth name, and assign numbers to each of the letters in your name. A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.
Here's a reference chart to help:
Add together all the numbers. You'll end up with a two or three digit number, like 132 for example. Then add that to reduce it to a single digit: 1 + 3 + 8 = 12.
Keep going until you reach a single digit number: 1 + 2 = 3. (The only exceptions are if you end up with 11, 22, 33, etc. These are called Master Numbers, and don't get reduced.)
So in this example, your name number would be 3.
Now by looking at the characteristics of 3's, you can see what kind of person you are likely to be. Three's are said to be expressive, good communicators, highly social people who enjoy the arts and like to get the most fun out of life.
Your Birth Number
Numbers that have significant impact on your life are usually calculated with your birthdate.
For example, August 5 1983 in numerology is: 8+5+1+9+8+3. That adds up to 34, which reduces to 7.
Your birth number tells you your Life Path -- one of the most important numerology numbers -- as well as your birthday number and your challenges.
