Welcome, cosmic warriors. I am astrologer Aliza Kelly Faragher, and that is Attract Astrology, a column devoted to all issues magick. Depend it up, cosmic warrior. As we speak, we’re exploring the fundamentals of numerology.
Have you ever ever discovered your self gazing on the clock at precisely 11:11? Questioning why you so steadily meet individuals born on the identical day of the month? Or why your fortunate quantity turns up in essentially the most surprising locations? The solutions you search, cosmic warrior, are embedded inside the the esoteric powers of digits. Numerology is the magical research of — you guessed it — numbers.
Simply as astrology the planets and zodiac indicators are linked to particular attributes inside astrology, in keeping with the teachings of numerology, sure numbers are related to particular traits or themes. These numbers are used to supply perception on character, future occasions, and even life’s larger function.
I chatted with Ophi Edut of the AstroTwins concerning the relationship between astrology and numerology. “Numerology is an superior companion to astrology. It helps make clear the signal by offering further nuance,” Ophi explains, including that numerology enhances your understanding of self by revealing not simply the way you specific your self, however the place you output your inherent vitality. “Numerology reveals the age of your soul. When you’re a Leo solar with an eight Life Path, you recognize that the Leo nature is being filtered extra internally than externally.”
Numerology can also be a fantastic software for making sense of recurring digits. “With numerology, you need to use particular items of data, comparable to a house tackle, to derive particulars,” Ophi says. “You actually begin to see patterns in all places.”
Numerical repetition and synchronicity have been noticed for 1000’s of years. Chaldean numerology is predicated on historical Babylonian practices, and Kabbalistic research of Jewish mysticism discover recurring digits inside the Outdated Testomony. The truth is, many occultists consider that the looks of 11:11 is linked to the tetragrammaton — the unpronounceable four-letter identify for the God of Israel.
Numerology is an superior companion to astrology — it helps make clear the
signal by offering further nuance.
The numerology most steadily practiced right this moment is predicated on the teachings of the traditional Greek thinker, Pythagoras. Pythagoras was a superb mathematician, however he wasn’t simply desirous about quantitative options. He believed that the bodily world was comprised of the energetic vibrations of numbers, and developed a system that corresponded letters with integers. His follow was a research of numerical interconnectivity.
However you don’t must be a math particular person to discover the magick of numerology. All it takes to start out uncovering the magical properties of numbers is a pen, paper, and a few easy arithmetic (or the closest calculator).
The best technique to begin working with numerology is by analyzing your distinctive date of beginning. Numerology is all about attending to the root quantity. To do that, you merely scale back digits till you attain a single-digit quantity, excluding 11 and 22, that are thought-about Grasp Numbers (extra on this later). This single digit is your particular person Life Path Quantity.
The Life Path Quantity is much like your astrological solar signal: It reveals your larger function, together with strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and ambitions. Your Life Path Quantity additionally exposes the tone of your experiences, and why occasions happen previous, current, and future. Merely put, it is the tactic to the insanity.
As an example your birthday is December 15, 1992. To calculate your Life Path Quantity, you’ll scale back every element of this date to a single digit:
The month, 12, is diminished to 1 + 2 = three.
The date, 14, is diminished to 1 + 5 = 6.
The yr, 1992, is diminished to 1 + 9 + 9 + 2. This equal 21. Then, 21 is diminished to 2 + 1 = three.
Then, we add the diminished month, date, and yr numbers (three + 6 + three) and arrive at 12. Lastly, we add 1 + 2, and attain three. When you had been born on December 15, 1992, your Life Path Quantity is three. It could appear daunting at first, however when you see all of it written out this fashion, it turns into far much less intimidating, no?
As talked about above, the one time you’d not scale back the ultimate quantity is should you attain 11 or 22. These are thought-about Grasp Numbers and connote a extra intensified model of their root numbers (2 and four, respectively). Grasp Numbers recommend a excessive diploma for studying, achievement, or success, however doubtless in a extra demanding or high-pressure surroundings.
As an example, Sir Paul McCartney, maybe England’s most well-known Gemini, was born on June 18, 1942. When this date is diminished (month = 6, day = 9, yr = 7), the sum is 22. Slightly than simplify this to a single digit (yielding four), the quantity 22 displays the Grasp Quantity — the higher-octane iteration of four, revealing McCartney’s sturdy “life mission.”
You can even use numerology to derive the basis variety of names or phrases — that is the place our historical buddy Pythagoras lends a hand. In response to his theories, sure letters have particular numerical values, that are as follows:
1 = A, J, S
2 = B, Ok, T
three = C, L, U
four = D, M, V
5 = E, N, W
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Y
eight = H, Q, Z
9 = I, R
Utilizing this system, it’s simple to search out the basis quantity related to names, which numerologists consult with as your Future Quantity. To search out your Future Quantity, calculate the basis variety of your full identify (first, center, final) by decreasing every identify to a single digit, and including up the entire.
For instance, my full identify reveals my Future Quantity: ALIZA (1 + three + 9 + eight + 1 = 22, which turns into 2 + 2 = four) KELLY (2 + 5 + three + three + 7 = 20, which turns into 2 + zero = 2) FARAGHER (6 + 1 + 9 + 1 + 7 + eight + 5 + 9 = 46, which turns into four + 6 = 10, then lastly, 1 + zero = 1), leading to a Future Variety of 7 (as a result of four + 2 + 1 = 7).
Whereas your Life Path reveals your larger function, your Future Quantity affords perception as to how you’ll specific your larger objectives. So, as a Life Path eight particular person, my mission is to domesticate abundance, and I’ll specific this via my Future Quantity 7: evaluation, analysis, and demanding commentary. Sounds about proper.
So, now that you just’ve calculated your Life Path Quantity and Future Quantity, it’s time to search out out what these digits actually imply. Let’s dig in.
