“Numerology is the historic study of the relationship between names, birthdates, and numbers. In fact the word Numerology is derived from the word ‘numerus’ a Latin word for ‘number’ and the Greek word ‘logos’ meaning thought & word.
In Numerology, unlike Astrology or tarot, a person’s birth name as-well-as their birth-date have significant influences on their life path and personality. Calculating various influential traits of a person is a straight forward process.
– Name Number:
The most popular system is the Pythagorean System. This number system assigns the number value by the sequence of the Western alphabet and uses a number formula based on calculating 1 to 9.
For the Expression number analysis, each letter of a person’s name is given a numerical value from 1 – 9, then the numbers are added up and reduced to a single digit number, except in cases where the name comes out to 11 or 22. In the case of an 11 the person will have traits of an 11 in addition to (1 + 1 = 2) giving the person additional traits of a 2, and in the case of a 22 they will also have traits of a 4 (2 + 2 = 4).
– Birth Number:
To calculate the Life Path number, which is based on the birth-date, you use basic mathimatics and add up the numbers in the date and then reduce it. For example Jan. 25, 1973 becomes: (Jan = 1) + (25 = 2 + 5 = 7) + (1973 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 3 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2) = (1 + 7 + 2 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1) = 1.
– Master Numbers
In Numerology, there are such things as Master Numbers that are noted, and these are the numbers 11 and 22. Essentially, the number 11 is a 2, but it is considered a higher vibration of the number 2. Similarly, the number 22 is a 4, but it is a higher vibration of the number 4.
– Important Difference Between the Birth Path and the Name Numbers
The Birth Path Number is less about personality than it is about career or “life path”. The Name Number, however, reveals the overall personality of an individual.”
