Numerology is the study of numbers and their incredible effect on our lives. Numerology could, however, be better named ‘The Science of Numbers’. Numbers have been in existence since the beginning of time and predates all Alphabets.
Numerology is a science based on numbers and their incredible effect on our lives. It is believed to have been studied as far back as 11,000. Numbers have been in existence since the beginning of time and predates all alphabets.
Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan.
A number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label. The original examples are the natural numbers 1, 2, 3, and so forth. A notational symbol that represents a number is called a numeral. In addition to their use in counting and measuring, numerals are often used for labels (as with telephone numbers), for ordering (as with serial numbers), and for codes (as with ISBNs). In common usage, number may refer to a symbol, a word, or a mathematical abstraction.
In mathematics, the people of numbers has been extended over the centuries to include 0, negative numbers, rational numbers such as and , real numbers such as and , complex numbers, which extend the real numbers by including , and sometimes additional objects. Calculations with numbers are done with arithmetical operations, the most familiar being addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponentiation. Their study or usage is called arithmetic. The same term may also refer to number theory, the study of the properties of the natural numbers. Numerology and numerological divination were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, numerology is often associated with the occult, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.
Pythagoras was one of the ‘Fathers of Numerology’, and that was 2,400 years ago. He was able to apply his knowledge and understanding in practical areas for the needs of mankind. Pythagoras gained his knowledge of numbers from Egypt and the Near East. Some researchers have found evidence that Numerology was practiced in Egypt as far back as 13,000 years ago.
Numerology has been practiced by many ancient cultures and teachers, including Babylonia, Pythagoras, astrological philosophy from Hellenistic Alexandria, early Christian mysticism, the occultism of the early Gnostics, the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah, The Indian Vedas, the Chinese “Circle of the Dead”, and the Ancient Egypt.
St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote “Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.” Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace. See Numerology and the Church Fathers for early Christian views.
Following the First Council of Nicaea, Numerology was assigned to the field of unapproved beliefs along with astrology and other forms of divination and magic.
Numerology is a tool used to investigate our own very being, and to bring light our highest potential on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes. Numerology tells of our potential destiny, our natural talents and helps us gain a better understanding of ourselves and others. It shows us the pathway we need to take in our lives to fulfill this potential, and also, tells us one of the many reasons why each one has different traits and characteristics.
Numerology tells of our potential destiny, our natural talents, and helps us to gain a better understanding of ourselves and others. It shows us the pathway we need to take in our lives to fulfill this potential, and also, tells us one of the many reasons why each one has different traits and characteristics.
Each number has a different vibration, and can therefore give us a better understanding of one’s pathway, and the circumstances which surround our life. It can direct one to the career best suited to each person, and gives us the opportunity to be more aware of the talents we have and of the pathways we choose to utilize them. It also tells us of the compatibility we have with another, especially who would be most compatible as a partner for you. It tells you how you may best help your family and friends, due to the numbers which control their lives.
Each number is influenced by a different planet in our Solar System. Each letter of the alphabet vibrates to a given number, 1 – 9, which is also the span of our life cycles. These numbers under which we were born, plus the numbers in our names, are the tools we are given in order that we may accomplish our mission in life, and enable us to work through all our Karmic Lessons. The Vibratory Power of each number affects us in both Positive and Negative ways.
The symbol meanings that surround the nine whole numbers are the centre of Numerological divination. Numbers integrate into many other divinity methods, such as the Tarot. Numbers can represent stages in the unfolding of any process, and can be keyed to planets, days, colors, qualities, character types and Tarot images.
Numbers are also keyed to letters of the alphabet, so words and names can be analyzed.
Numerology brings insight, wisdom and the ability to understand ourselves and others.
There are no set definitions for the meaning of specific digits. Common examples include:
0 – Zero – 0 – Everything or absoluteness. All
Eternity, the beginning point, eternity, infinity, oneness, wholeness, continuing cycles, flow, the ‘God force’ and Universal energies. O is the Alpha and Omega. The number 0 encompasses the attributes of all other numbers. 0 is Alpha (beginning) and Omega (the Highest), as there is no beginning and no end. All is infinite. The Ancients proclaimed that the ‘God force’ is a circle whose center is everywhere and its circumference is nowhere. All numbers with the 0 puts one closer to the ‘God force’ or Universal energy.
The number 0 stands for potential and/or choice, and when this number sequence presents and recurs, it’s message is to do with developing one’s spiritual aspects as 0 are considered to represent the beginning of a spiritual journey and highlights the uncertainties that may entail.
Zero is the symbol of ‘nothingness’ and denotes freedom from limitations in this material world.
When 0 recurs for you, you are asked to listen to your intuition and higher-self as that is where you’ll find your answers.

Numerologists often reduce a number or word by a process known as digit summing, and then reach conclusions based on the single digit that is produced. There are a number of different methods of calculation, including Chaldean, Pythagorean, Hebraic, Helyn Hitchcock’s method, Phonetic, Japanese and Indian.
Each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. These numbers show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie.
