Guest Post: An Introduction to Numerology

I have a special treat for you today!!  We have a guest blogger with some great information about numerology.  Christine runs the amazing website: www.numerologysign.com.  This site is truly a family project with her son heading up the technical side and her step-daughter contributing articles.  So, sit back, relax and let’s learn a little about numerology!

Introduction to Numerology 

According to Numerology, I have the Life Number 33, Expression Number 11, Personality Number 6, and a Heart’s Desire Number 5, but what do these numbers mean?

Numerology is based on the philosophy that the universe is constructed according to a divine geometric plan, which is why the same patterns repeatedly appear in the seeming chaos of nature, and maths hold as a universal truth. Philosophers from Ancient Babylon, Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, India, and Japan all recognized the importance of numbers independently as the building blocks of the universe. As such, numbers are like the DNA of the universe, and like human DNA, carry information.

Numerology is all about deciphering this numerical information to better understand the world in which we live in, and ourselves.

Personal Numerology

In modern western Numerology, all things have number, locations, dates, ideas, and understanding these numbers help us understand those things. Each person also has a series of numbers associated with them that reveals information about their personality and destiny, similar to an astrological chart.

There are dozens of different numbers that Numerologists have discovered and developed over the years for individuals, but there are four core numbers.

Live Path Number

The Life Path Number is the most critical number in a person’s numerological chart. It outlines how a person’s life will play out, what they will experience, what their main opportunities and challenges will be.

Your Life Path Number is calculated from your date of birth. You convert each of the units of your birthday (day, month and year) into single digit numbers, or one of the three master numbers (11, 22, 33), and then add these three numbers to get a final single digit or master number.

For example, if I was born on May 15th, 1980. May is the 5th month of the year, giving me a 5. For the day I would add 1+5, giving me a 6. For the year I would add 1+9+8+4, giving me 22. Usually, if you reach a double-digit number you would add the numbers again (2+2 giving 4), but we don’t do this in the case of 11, 22 or 33 because they are master numbers and therefore an exception. I then need to add these three digits, 5+6+22, which gives 33, which again would usually reduce to 6, but because this is a master number, we keep 33.

Expression Number

The Expression Number reveals information about your natural strengths and weaknesses that are with you from the time of your birth and have an influence throughout your life.

Your Expression Number is determined from your name at birth, which represents your inheritance and personal history up until your birth, and therefore your innate characteristics. Like with your Life Path Number, you calculate a single digit number or master number for each part of your name and then combine these to get a final number. You do this by assigning each letter in your name a numerical value – the numerical value of English letters is given below.

For example, Jayne Marie Hunt. Jayne (1+1+7+5+5) will reduce to 1, Marie (4+1+9+9+5) to 1 and Hunt (8+3+5+2) to 9, which together will give a final number of 11.

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

Personality Number

The Personality Number reveals which it is that you are projecting into the world, which is extremely important to how others perceive you. It is calculated in the same way as you Expression Number but using only the consonants in your name at birth.

For Jayne Marie Hunt. Jayne (1+5) will reduce to 6, Marie (1+9+5) to 6 and Hunt (3) with only one vowel is 3, which together will give a final number of 6.

Heart’s Desire Number

The Heart’s Desire Number reveals the underlying reasons behind your actions and what motivates you in life. Like the Expression and Personality Numbers, it is calculated from your name at birth, but using only the vowels in your name.

So again, for Jayne Marie Hunt. Jayne (1+7+5) will reduce to 4, Marie (4+9) to 4 and Hunt (8+5+2) to 6, which together will give a final number of 5.

Note: While 0 is a meaningful number within Numerology, you will never have a personal number that is 0, because 0 means nothing and everything, all potential and all possibilities, so it makes little sense as a personal number.

Number Meanings

The meanings of the different numbers in Numerology is complex and depends on what the number relates to. There is a lot of information available and websites such as Numerology Sign to help you understand your specific numbers better once you have calculated them. Below is a quick cheat sheet for the general meanings of the individual numbers to get you started.
