Numerology is the ancient science of the symbolism of numbers. In the modern world most of us take numbers for granted, viewing them simply as units of measurement. To the ancients however, numbers also symbolized archetypal ideas.
Pythagoras is known to have been a numerologist as well as a mathematician and is said to have developed the form of numerology most used in the West today.
In numerology we add different series of numbers in your date of birth and name together, to arrive at ultimate numbers, or aspects. When interpreted as a whole, these aspects describe your life and purpose with great accuracy.
1: Leadership, confidence, power, new beginnings, individuality, masculine.
2: Cooperation, intuition, sensitivity, partnerships, diplomacy, feminine.
3: Creativity, joy, play, fun, sociable, childlike.
4: Discipline, practicality, structure, organization, determination.
5: Freedom, communication, versatility.
6: Love, harmony, balance, creativity, family and service orientated.
7: Analysis, understanding, learning, deep hidden power, psychic, aloneness.
8: Material satisfaction, manager, executive – the ‘money number’.
9: Compassion, unconditional love, visionary, performer.
11: Spiritual illumination, great sensitivity, charisma, quiet power, the bringing together of spirit and matter to work in harmony as one.
22: Master builder, visionary, great power, practical, charisma.
33: World teacher, divine love. It is rare to find people who can fully embody the beautiful 33 vibration. In most cases this energy is expressed through the more earthly vibration of the 6.
In addition each of the numbers has an affinity with a part of the body. When numbers in your chart are out of balance, their corresponding organs can be affected.
The numbers 13, 14, 16, and 19 are karmic numbers. Whenever they appear in your chart, they indicate a karmic debt.

In numerology each letter of the alphabet has a number. A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 and so on. When we reach the double figure numbers, we simply add these numbers together, to make a single number. For example X is the 24th letter of the alphabet, so therefore 2 + 4 = 6.
K and V, the 11th and 22nd letters of the alphabet, are considered to be numbers 2 and 4 respectively.
1 = A, J, S
2 = B, K, T
3 = C, L, U
4 = D, M, V
5 = E, N, W
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Y
8 = H, Q, Z
9 = I, R
The amount of each of the numbers / letters in the full name on your birth certificate is significant. We are able to see if you were born balanced, overbalanced or under-balanced in any of the numbers, by looking at their amounts in your name. When none of the numbers / letters appear, this indicates a karmic lesson.
