Numerology is a divinatory art that draws cosmic meaning, purpose, or guidance from specific numbers or number combinations. The significance of these numbers is usually found in a person’s character, or measured against certain synchronistic life events. This occult study of numbers can manifest through various, almost limitless means in a birth date (your Life Path Number), a time of day, a coincidental sum, your name, and many other ways. Astrology, Tarot, and the Hebrew Kabbalah are closely linked with numerology and there are many correspondences between these practices. Finding deeper meaning in life and in ourselves is a very powerful practice and numerology is one of its primary gateways.
Numerology is the science of numbers. Pythagoras (580/572 BC – 500/490 BC) the ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher believed that numbers contained their own unique energies that affected us on many levels and that everything was related to mathematics. Pythagoras claimed that by numbers alone anything could be predicted or explained. His theory was based on the cyclical nature of numbers and their patterns. Pythagoras was once quoted as saying “number is the ruler of forms and ideas.” He also considered numbers to be mystical and magical. He believed that the world, our personalities and everything we did could be explained by numbers. Today numerologists use the ‘Fadic’ system, which is the adding of two digits or reducing of digits to make one.
Tarot Reading and Numerology go hand in hand. Not only is the meaning of the card taken into consideration for interpretation but also its numerical association. When we see a particular number turning up repetitively in a spread, the meaning associated with the number is strengthened and so must be given close attention for it is telling us something. Numbers alone in a reading can provide great information not only on what is going on in the Querant’s life but also alert us to the particular stage they are at on their life cycle. Both hold great importance for the querant and often provide answers as to why they are going through certain issues at such time.
Everything in the universe has an energy vibration – and numbers are no different. In fact, in Numerology very number (and letter) has its own unique vibration that has an influence upon the story of your life. Therefore, numerology is the study of the relationship that numbers and letters have with our personality and life events. It is an ancient metaphysical science that reveals the blueprint of every human being’s life and it is one of the most accurate and powerful self-help tools available today.
