Psychic abilities have been playing a huge role in the development and enhancement of our daily lives for the centuries. Lots and lots of public figures have made successful decisions based on psychic readings. Moreover, the gifted people who can foresee things and uncover mysterious secrets are known as psychics. There are different types of psychics, each specializing in a specific area. Some of the common psychics include astrologers, cartomancers, palmists, numerologists, lithomancers, and crystallomancers.
Among the diverse methods of divination mentioned above, there is a practice known as Numerology, which observes numbers and links them with the life of a given person. Accordingly, Numerologists are individuals who examine numerical combinations and use them to predict future occurrences as well as reveal some personal characteristics.
But what is Numerology all about? Or how is it even possible to predict the future based on some numerical patterns?
The following sections will answer some of the frequently asked questions about Numerology and its practitioners:
If you find any of the above issues relevant, keep reading! Here is all you might need to know to get a general idea of how Numerology works.
Numerology is a pseudoscience, which studies the numbers and their meaning, affecting our day-to-day activities as well as essential aspects of the future. It is believed that the numbers are directly linked with various events happening in our lives. Even ancient philosophers and mathematicians thought that numbers were not only about mathematical expressions; Rather, they could be used as the Universal language to predict various events.
According to Numerology, each number has a specific meaning, which can be assigned by following one of the methodologies. Some of the methods are even regarded to have taken the origin in ancient Egypt, India, Babylon, China, Rome, Japan, and Greek. Unfortunately, there is no evidence of where and how it all started.
In modern-day divinatory practices, Numerology often accompanies Astrology, the study of movements and positions of stellar objects. In this way, astrological predictions are strengthened by the addition of numerical combinations and their meanings.
Numerologists are practitioners of Numerology, believing that numbers can be used to uncover personality traits and forecast destiny. Numerologists study how to interpret numbers in a way that they give a value of “Life Path Number.” If you are thinking of what this number actually means, continue reading! The next section provides all the information about different methods used to calculate the Life Path Number and predict future occurrences.
As mentioned earlier, there are different methods a numerologist can use to provide readings and uncover your destiny. Some of the most common techniques are discussed below.
Since Pythagoras is known as the father of the theory of numbers, one of the widespread methodologies is known as Pythagorean or Western Numerology. According to Pythagorean Numerology, each number (1 through 9) is linked to a letter. To find these relationships, numerologists use the full name of a person and assign numbers to each letter in the name.
The following are the numbers and corresponding letters from the Latin Alphabet:
Alphabetic systems are slightly contrasting for different countries and regions. There are several alphabets used for Numerological reading purposes, including Latin, Abjad, Hebrew, Greek, Armenian, and Arabic. From these alphabets, Latin is used more often in different types of methodologies, including Pythagorean, Phonetic, Japanese, Indian, Hebraic, and Helyn Hitchcock’s Method. Although there are so many alphabetic systems, the technique is almost similar. They assign numbers to specific letters to interpret birth dates or different important number combinations.
Even though Babylonian Numerology is also based on the relationship between numbers and letters, there are some nuances that should be considered. For instance, the Babylonian system uses numbers from 1 through 8. As one can notice, there is no letter value for number 9. The reason for this is that number 9 is considered as sacred since it represents infinity.
Even though some of the letter assignments are the same as in the case of the Pythagorean System, there are still some differences that can be seen below.
Instead of assigning different letters to numbers as we have discussed above, Chinese Numerology uses specific definitions. According to these meanings, even numbers are considered to be luckier compared to odd ones. Some of the lucky number patterns in Chinese Numerology include the following: 168 (success), 520 (love), 888 (wealth), and 1314 (eternity).
In almost any numerological system, there are several terms and number derivation methods used to provide feedback on general personal characteristics or even predict the future.
A couple of most essential numbers that should be derived to get numerological predictions are as follows.
Life Path Number is a single-digit number derived from your full name and corresponding numerical values. The number uncovers the purpose of your life, primary goals, and some significant aspects of your future.
To calculate your Life Path Number, you should reduce numbers until you get a number from 1 through 9. How the reducing technique works is that you obtain numbers that correspond to the letters in your name. Then, you sum these numbers and reduce it by summing its constituent single-digit numbers. For instance, number 76 can be reduced by summing 7+6=13. Since 13 is not a single-digit number, we have to reduce it again by summing 1+3=4. Here you go! The number 4 ended up being the root number, therefore the Life Path Number.
While Destiny Number is also derived by calculating the root number, it has a slightly different meaning compared to Life Path Number. It reveals some factors that will influence the way you are going to achieve your goals. Calculation of Destiny Number along with the Life Path Number is essential for receiving a more comprehensive and clear reading based on your full name and corresponding numbers.
Finally, we have Master Numbers, which are the ones that do not require to be reduced. Master Numbers are 11, 22, and 33. If you end up with these three numbers, instead of reducing them to their root numbers, you leave them in this form. The reason for this is that these numbers already have their unique meaning and are considered to be creating a “Triangle of Enlightenment.” That is why other numbers (44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99) are not considered as Master Numbers.
The following are the meanings of the three Master Numbers mentioned above.
