What Is Numerology?
Numerology is the occult study of numbers and their potential influence throughout an entire lifetime. Numerology fits with multiple beliefs and systems, but is commonly consider pseudoscience with today's Mathematics and technological advances. Numerology is classified today with mystical practices including astrology and studying the paranormal.
The History of Numerology
Although the system of numerology has existed for many centuries, the English word “numerology” itself was essentially unheard of until after 1907. Babylon and Egypt are known to have discovered and embraced numerology before any other group of individuals. Pythagoras was an early Mathematician and philosopher that also embraced numerology and helped with spreading its formulas and knowledge with others.
How Numerology is Used Today
Numerology is used today to help others with determining and setting goals while also gaining insight into making any life changes that may be fitting for them based on their own situations. You can use numerology during psychic readings and also while researching your own birth date and any numbers in your life that may be influential to your personality, relationships and the drive you have in life.
Numerology also plays a role in science and new discoveries of numbers today, although it is not considered a valid form of science or Mathematics itself. Because of numerology's broad and extended history, it is used by many cultures from all around the globe, making it entirely universal by most standards.
Adding numbers together singularly and then breaking them down into one number is one of the most common methods of determining one's life path, love life predictions or even information about their own personality. If you have a birth date of 01/03/1980, adding each individual number returns: 1+3+1+9+8=22. Breaking the double-digit down even more results as: 2+2=4. The end result is “4”, which can be defined as “creation” itself or the active of being creative with many numerology systems. The number “4” may hold different definitions based on the numerology system you are using and the type of reading you are receiving as well.
Although the definitions of specific numbers can vary greatly depending on the type of reading or interpretation you are using, there are base definitions of the numbers one through nine that help with grasping the concepts of numerology and how specific numbers may relate to you.
