What exactly is Numerology and how does it work? It is generally believed that Numerology dates back over 2,500 years and is found in the ancient cultures of Egypt, Babylon, ancient India, Greece, Italy, and even China and Japan. It’s essentially an ancient system of translating letters of the alphabet into numerical values in order to decode the fundamental nature of a person, a physical thing, or an abstract concept. Pythagoras (b. 570 BC) usually gets most of the credit for modern-day Numerology as we know it, although there seems to be almost no evidence to support this claim. More evidence supports the fact that Pythagoras was probably more of a philosopher and a mystic, rather than a mathematician. He believed that the cosmos was ordered and that there were meaningful numerical relationships. He was considered an expert on the fate of the human soul (believing in immortality and reincarnation), as well as religious rituals of his day. He was deified in some ways for the strict moral code by which he lived, improving his chances for better outcomes in the world hereafter. Still, regardless of any solid proof, Pythagoras is often thought of as “The Father of Numerology” and it is the “Pythagorean Chart” that is most commonly used in modern day readings. Essentially, the numbers one through nine are assigned to each letter of the alphabet in rotation, whereby A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on. The numbers are then added up until a single-digit number is attained, the only exception being the Master Numbers of 11 and 22. Each final number then has certain personality traits and characteristics as described below.
Numerology believes that within each person exists a divinely encoded numerical value which illuminates his or her characteristics, personality, purpose and destiny. Numerology uses both the full birth name (as it appears on the birth certificate) and birth date to create a singular profile. There are five Core Numbers: Life Path, Destiny, Soul, Personality and Maturity. The full name of a person corresponds with the Destiny Number, and the first name alone is one piece used to interpret the whole energy of a person’s code for success.
