Numerology is over 5000 years old. Many people across the world practice numerology personally and professionally to help guide, inform and empower.
Its history goes back to Babylonian and Egyptian times but the most common modern day approach is known as Western Pythagorean. The beauty of numerology lies in its simplicity and applicability.
I could write pages on its history but in a way it’s irrelevant. We only have to look at our modern lives to see how influential numbers are. Buildings can’t be designed without them, our exchange system is based on the number value of currency and we measure time in numbers. It therefore makes sense that our own lives and selves are also influenced by numbers.
What do the Numbers mean in Numerology?
In numerology the core numbers are 1 to 9 and collectively they cover all aspects of humanity, It’s easiest to think of each number being part of a skills and blessings collection. If the number is in your chart you have that collection but if you’re missing a collection don’t worry you can study, work and learn the required skills & outlooks.
Each number from 1 to 9, and 11, 22, 33, the master numbers, will always have the same vibration and meaning. However, it depends on how & where you apply the numbers as to how each of those meanings are interpreted.
Numerology can be applied to your own life and potential all the way to energy of your home, care and marriage date.
Looking at numerology on a personal level, all Life Path numbers are covered by the numbers 1 to 9 with the addition of the numbers 11, 22 and 33. A common question is if there is a better number but that’s the wrong question. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, who you are different numbers are going to be more aligned.
There is no such thing as a bad number but each number has it’s over and under energy so balance of the numbers vibration is important. For example. In balance the 1 is a number of strength, courage, success and leadership. In over energy it can be aggressive, stubborn and dominating. in under energy it is going to be subservient and lack confidence.
