Numerology is thought to have first been used approximately 10,000 years ago by the Egyptians. However, it was not until around the 6th century BC that Pythagoras is cited for formally establishing what we refer to as numerology. Since then, the 20th and 21st centuries have marked renewed interest in the field. Despite the revival of numerology, most people are still unaware of what numerology is and how it can help you. Here you will learn all you need to know about this intriguing field and its benefits to you.

What is Numerology?

Numerology refers to studying the symbolic meaning of numbers that can be used to better understand your personality, strengths, weaknesses, and much more. When doing numerological calculations, a person’s name and date of birth are assigned a number. Each part of the birth date and name is given a number between 1 and 9. The numbers 11 and 22 are also used occasionally and are referred to as master numbers. These numbers are said to represent vibrations that are associated with each characteristic of the person. By using the numbers assigned for a person’s date of birth and name, simple mathematics is used to identify core elements and modifiers to provide personal insight.

In order to better understand numerology, let us say that a person was born in 1963. This number can be broken down to 1 + 9 + 6 + 3 to get 19, which can be broken down to 1 + 9, to give you 10, which can be broken down yet again to 1 + 0 to give you 1. If the person was born on the 16th of the month, you would simply break it down to 1 + 6 to get 7. This should give you a basic idea of how numerology calculations work.
