Numerology is the least understood principle of the metaphysical sciences as it is the study of the symbolism of numbers. When it is used properly, it helps discover secret meanings and predictions for the future. Numerology has been used for thousands of years in China, Rome, Japan and Greece. This study is based on an idea proposed by Pythagoras around 500 BC, that everything can be expressed in terms of numbers.
In Numerology, each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. The intriguing path of numerology takes your name, along with your date of birth and reduces it down to a single digit. We will give you the steps below to reach your final Identity Number, and a list of the qualities and energies associated with your own personal number.
If you take the sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in your name, this will provide an interrelation of vibrations. Each digit from 1 to 9 has its own tendencies. The end number may have insight into your key personality. The numbers with two digits are added together to make the resultant single number. The numbers often show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie. Experts in Numerology within the study of Astrology, use the numbers to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life.
Birth Day Number
Your Birth Day Number gives you an idea of the opportunities and challenges you will encounter and the personal traits that will assist you on your path of life. To calculate your Birth Day number, calculate the number of letters in the month (e.g,: January=7, February=8, March=5, etc.), the day (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) and year of your birth. Numbers are reduced to the single digits 1 through 9. The numbers are reduced by simple addition. The number 23, for instance, is reduced by adding 2 + 3 to get 5.
Similarly, the number 1974 can be reduced by adding 1 + 9 + 7 + 4 to get 21. The 21 can be further reduced by adding 2 + 1 to get 3. When you add up the number for the Month, the number for the day, and the number for the year, add the final numbers together and reduce them until you have a single digit. For example, if your total number is 36, reduce it further by adding the 3+6 = 9. Your final Birth Day Number would be 9.
True Name Number
To find out your True Name number, use the name given you on your birth certificate or an identification document, including your middle name. If you had your name changed legally, use that name. Add together all of the letter’s numbers. Reduce the sum of your name’s numbers into a single digit. If you have 25, split the 25 and add 2+5 = 7.
Assign the letters in your name to the numbers below:
Number 1– A, J, S
Number 2– B, K, T
Number 3– C, L, U
Number 4– D, M, V
Number 5– E, N, W
Number 6– F, O, X
Number 7– G, P, Y
Number 8– H, Q, Z
Number 9– I, R
Your final number from the letters in your legal name is also known as your Destiny Number and a good judge of your talents. Your True Name number, combined with your Birth Day number, will give you the best perspective on your true identity. This is called your Identity Number.
The Identity Number
Your Identity Number is your most important number, as it is a sum total of your Birth Day Number and your True Name Number. It is obtained by adding both numbers together and reducing it to one digit. This number helps understand your identity, from the depth of your soul, and connecting to your inner-self and the core of your being.
