What is Numerology?
Numerology is the use of numbers and number combinations in divination. Numerology is often used as part of psychic readings; however, it is a science that can help you understand yourself and others and, for me, it is a lot like astrology where, instead of a birth chart, you have your own number calculations which help you understand more about yourself and your soul purpose. I have found it to be amazingly accurate and so have my students. Each number corresponds to a meaning. They also correspond to the letters of the alphabet. It is through these meanings and correspondences that numerology is interpreted and charts are made for divination.
The numbers used are 1 to 9. Any number larger than 10 is broken down by adding the two digits of the number together to get a single digit number. The exceptions are 11, 22 and sometimes 33 and 44, as they are believed to be Master Numbers with their own unique and powerful energies.
Number Meanings Checklist
1- singular, individual, leadership, loneliness
2- balance, partnership, co-operation,
3- communication, fun, entertainment
4- Reliable, stability, security
5- action, adventure, risk
6- responsibility, caring, service
7- the mind, thought, inspiration
8- power, money, achievement
9- humanitarian, expansive, generous
The meanings of the numbers vary often according to each numerologist. However, in general the above meanings are a good representation of the number meanings that are most often used. Sometimes the numbers 11 and 22 are assigned special meanings as prime numbers that represent the most important and meaningful numbers in numerology.
What does a Numerologist Do?
A numerologist has to be able to make the connection between letters and numbers, as well as be able to add and interpret the meanings behind the results of their work. Numerology reports are often long and take quite a bit of time to finish. Reports are often based upon the name and date of birth of a person. The name and date of birth are broken down into various equations that each mean something different.
A numerologist should only need the basic information, name and date of birth, to complete a natal numerology chart. For more complex charts they may need additional information. Relationship charts require the names of both individuals and their birth dates and may require the date of the anniversary, depending on the reading to be done.
Numerology and other disciplines.
Numerology requires a lot of skill to remember all the corresponding details of numbers and letters. A numerologist also has to learn the different meanings of the numbers and the different formulas for coming up with the results of a reading. It can take some time to learn numerology, but it is not as difficult as it may seem. A good numerologist will be able to explain the process to their clients and be able to answer any questions they may have.
Numerology is a form of divination and can be used on a smaller scale with other forms of divination like tarot readings or rune casting. Numbers have always held special meanings and they can add depth to a tarot reading or rune casting. Many psychic readers associate numbers with their readings, as sometimes they may receive messages in the form of numbers. Numerology can also work to enhance astrological birth chart readings or you can use astrology to enhance your numerology skills as both work with numbers.
You can also use numerology while working as a coach or in any other field where it will be useful to know what makes someone tick as this science can be extremely accurate, especially when looking at the likes and dislikes of a person.
