Numerology and How to Use It
Numerology is an ancient divinatory art that draws cosmic meaning, purpose, and guidance from numbers and number combinations. Almost everything holds meaning in the world of numerology – your birth date, your address, your name, and even your phone number all have numerical significance! Numerology is closely linked to astrology, Tarot, and the Hebrew Kabbalah, and it’s one of the most powerful ways to uncover deeper meaning about yourself and the world around you.
Understanding and Using Numerology
Numerologists recognize numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22, and 33 as each having their own unique meaning. Each of these numbers represents various personality traits, patterns, and dispositions, both positive and negative. For example, the number 1 signifies the go-getter who may, at times, be overly domineering. The number 5 signifies a free-spirit, who might also become restless.
The numbers 11, 22, and 33 are considered Master Numbers – powerfully amplified variants of their respective sums. In other words, 11 corresponds to the same traits as the number 2, which is artistic, though self-conscious. And 22 corresponds to the number 4, which is practical, though sometimes lacking imagination.
The standard numerology chart is an alpha-numeric table (the Pythagorean methodology is pictured below) that assigns a number to every letter of the alphabet. With this chart, you can draw meaning from any word by adding up the sum of its number-letter correspondences. Which number reflects you? Adding up the sum of every letter in your full birth name is a popular practice in the study of numerology, in order to arrive at a single, defining digit or master number (11, 22, and 33).
Your Life Path Number
Your Life Path number is derived from your birth date. Reduce each unit (month, day, and year) of your birth date to a single digit or master number (11, 22, and 33). Add these three numbers together and reduce to a single digit or master number. Two-digit numbers must be broken apart and added together until arriving at a single digit except for master numbers (11, 22, and 33).
If your birthday is September 15, 1976, the equation for finding your Life Path number is:
Month: 9 for September = 9
Day: 15 (1+5) = 6
Year: 1976 (1+9+7+6) = 23 (2+3) = 5
Final Number: 9 (Month) + 6 (Day) + 5 (Year) = 20 (2+0) = Life Path Number 2
What Do the Life Path Numbers Mean?
If you want to tap into the opportunities, challenges, and lessons that you specifically chose for this lifetime, your Life Path number is a key. Your Life Path number is also known as your “soul’s contract.” It represents what you chose to learn and how you want to grow in this lifetime. Each number holds a certain vibration, and each vibration produces certain characteristics or qualities. This is why we are able to predict or explain things (and people) with numerology – once we know the vibration, the manifestation of energy is predictable. As with all energy, there is a spectrum of expression and manifestation. In your journey of becoming, the embodiment of your Life Path number energy will shift and evolve. When you are conscious of the field you are playing in, it’s easier to make new choices and more fully explore your gifts and challenges.
