Numerology is based on mathematical formulas that have rarely been tinkered with over the ages. The theory is that every name and every birthdate can be reduced down to a single number.
These numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22.
Each of these numbers is reduced down to a single digit. This reduction of a name down by omitting vowels or consonants to a symbol is a contemporary way of making a sigil.
In this case the sigil is usually a single digit number that represents different aspects of a person’s character and destiny.
In numerology the only numbers that do not reduce down to a single digit are the master numbers. Double digits indicate personalities that are master numbers, meaning that they are the teachers and builders in society. In fact, I am not surprised to find myself introducing you to this course because my own birth name reduces down to a 22!
These numbers suggest a potential for a high degree of achievement but if you are one, you often experience a very difficult or stressful life path. Master numbers also have what is called a parallel number. For instance, the number 22 reduces down to the number 4 which means that along with my daily epiphanies come the usual practical and mundane daily chores!
Although numerology has been practiced for centuries, in modern times it really does have some practical applications particularly if you are interested in some psychological self-investigation.
It can also be used to predict high and lows in your life as well as determine what makes you (and others) tick.
Perhaps its greatest value is in its capacity to help you assess your personal strengths and weaknesses as well as provide you with an intuitive snapshot of another person’s traits.
At the very least, learning numerology is an amusing parlor game; at it’s most it is a revelatory metaphysical science that can provide you with great insights and maybe even a way of making a living!
