# What is Numerology?

Every day, we are exposed to numbers. We’ve got phone numbers, birthdates, even our fiscal advice is driven by numbers. Numerology is the study of those numbers in our own lives and how they influence us. A student of numerology uses the letters in a sentence, such as a complete name, or a birth date also reduces that to one number. That number tells them specific matters about the person’s character, what strengths and flaws they possess; it may also be used to predict their future. Numerology is often closely correlated astrology as astrologists assigned the numbers 0 through 9 to each celestial body in the solar system and every number has its own set of values.

Numerology has existed for thousands of years. The Egyptians and Babylonians both utilized it over 10,000 decades back. Pythagoras, a mathematician whose concepts are still in use today, is thought to have officially organized numerology in Greece over 2,500 years ago. He held the view that mathematics concepts were easier to classify and regulate than actual ones. Others writings and beliefs significant in the development of numerology were early Christian mysticism, the Chinese Circle of the Dead, the Kabbalah, and also the Indian Vedas. At the start of the 20th century, L. Dow Balliet released the first book about numerology, starting what is called the modern phase of numerology and interest in it grew over the upcoming few decades. Lately, a revival of interest in numerology has happened and lots of people are learning how numbers might affect them.

Although methods might vary, typically a numerologist reduces a term or number using a procedure called digit summing. If the numerologist is dealing with a number, such as a birth date, then they still add up all the numbers. If the amount is two or more digits, then those numbers are inserted until there is a single digit left. When working with a phrase, such as a title, every letter of the alphabet is assigned a number. Then the same steps as above are followed – that the numbers are summed until one digit stays. Some numerologists will not violate numbers that complete 11, 22, or 33. These are known as master numbers and are considered to have higher vibrations as compared to numbers they would make if digitally summed.

One – Because it is the first number, one is regarded as having good power. Usually viewed as “male,” one can be happy, loving and energetic while also being alone and egotistical.

Two – Associated with “female” power, too often represents interacting and partnerships with others. It can also stand for the polar opposites of things such as black and white or good and evil. This number is best symbolized by the Chinese emblem Yin-Yang.

Three – Three is often related to learning through life experiences. It is frequently considered lucky and bewitching. It may mean both wisdom and understanding, yet also be foolish and negative.

Four – The initial composite number (the first number to be created by multiplying numbers other than one and itself), four is related to the four cardinal points (North, South, East and West), the four Gospels of the Bible, along with time (four seasons, approximately four months in each month). It’s a homonym for the Chinese term for “passing,” so; a few hospitals do not have a fourth floor.

Five – Five is closely related with the five senses (smell, touch, taste, hearing, and sight) and frequently represents service to others as well as openness to new experiences, but it could also represent an addictive personality.

Six – The number six relates to attractiveness and often helps in constructing relationships. Six can be regarded as the mother/father number.

Seven – A religious number, seven can be equally dreamy and religious while also being deceitful and insincere.

Eight – Eight represents challenging work and life lessons. Owing to that, eight is seen as seeking financial and material achievement, but can also be related to the hardship encountered while seeking equally.

Nine – A sacred number, nine is viewed as a humanitarian number and retains mystical significance due to the nine-month gestational period for humans.

Numerology has been around for centuries. As with astrology, a few view numerology as an occult science with little significance, while some see it as a viable approach to help them understand the world about them.W
