Introduction to NUMEROLOGY


Numerology is the study of numbers and their incredible effect on our lives. Numerology could, however, be better named ‘The Science of Numbers’. Numerology is a science based on numbers and their incredible affect on our lives. Numbers have been in existence since the beginning of time and predates all alphabets.  

PYTHAGORAS was one of the ‘Fathers of Numerology’, and that was 2,400 years ago. He was able to apply his knowledge and understanding in practical areas for the needs of mankind. Pythagoras gained his knowledge of numbers from Egypt and the Near East. Some researchers have found evidence that Numerology was practiced in Egypt as far back as 13,000 years ago.

Numerology is a tool used to investigate our own very being, and to bring light our highest potential on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes. Numerology tells of our potential destiny and our natural talents, and helps us gain a better understanding of ourselves and others. It shows us the pathway we need to take in our lives to fulfill this potential, and also, tells us one of the many reasons why each one has different traits and characteristics.  

Each number has a different vibration and can therefore give us a better understanding of one’s pathway, and the circumstances which surround our life. It can direct one to the career best suited to each person, and gives us the opportunity to be more aware of the talents we have and of the pathways we choose to utilize them. It also tells us of the compatibility we have with another, especially who would be most compatible as a partner for you. It tells you how you may best help your family and friends due to the numbers which control their lives.

Each number is influenced by a different planet in our Solar System. Each letter of the alphabet vibrates to a given number 1 – 9, which is also the span of our life cycles. 

These numbers under which we were born, plus the numbers in our names, are the tools we are given in order that we may accomplish our mission in life, and enable us to work through all our karmic lessons. The vibratory power of each number affects us in both positive and negative ways.

The symbol meanings that surround the nine whole numbers are the centre of Numerological divination. Numbers integrate into many other divinatory methods, such as the TarotNumbers can represent stages in the unfolding of any process, and can be keyed to planets, days, colours, qualities, character types and Tarot images. Numbers are also keyed to letters of the alphabet, so words and names can be analyzed.

Numerology brings insight, wisdom and the ability to understand ourselves and others.
