Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan. Each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. These numbers show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie. Experts in numerology use the numbers to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life. Numerology is used to decide when to invest, when to marry, when to travel, when to change jobs, or relocate.
Numerology is one of the most ancient skills, the so-called pseudo-science, which was first founded in the old cultures of China and India, was used to discover the features and elements of the person's character according to their date of birth as well as their name and surname. Those ancient people believed that through numerology they can understand the good and bad sides of a human soul, one's personality, the visible and hidden competences, one's virtues and flaws, one's likes and dislikes, the person's motivation in life, the suitable love partners and friends, as well as one's past and future life.
Numerology is perhaps the easiest of the occult arts to understand and use. All is needed the birth date and the complete name of an individual to unlock all of the secrets that the numbers hold.
There are eleven numbers used in constructing Numerology charts. These numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22. Larger numbers that occur from adding the numbers in the complete birth date or from the values assigned to each name are reduced by adding the digits together until the sum achieved is one of the core numbers. Merely add the components of the larger number together (repeatedly, if necessary) until a single digit (or the "master" numbers 11 or 22) results. Each of these numbers represents different characteristics and expressions.
Master numbers are the only exception to rule of reducing to the single digit. The master numbers 11 and 22 are reputedly intensified versions of the single digit number they replace (2 and 4). These numbers suggest a potential for a high degree of learning and/or achievement very often in a more stressful environment. In most individuals, the master numbers operate at a much more tangible or practical level, becoming essentially the same as the single digit parallel.
