What Is Numerology ??
Numerology is a form of divination similar to astrology that deals with connections between numbers and personality traits, destiny, events, and circumstances. Certain numbers associated with people, places, and events may play a role in better understanding these things or predicting potential outcomes. Your personal numerology is part of the karmic imprint you bring to this lifetime in order to help you grow spiritually.
At the root of numerology lies the belief that numbers are a universal language. By calculating certain numbers (typically birth names and birthdates are the primary numbers calculated), one may get a clearer picture of themselves, others, and the world at large. While this system appears to have been used across various civilizations for thousands of years, nobody really knows the true origins of the study, although numerological systems and beliefs appear in writings discovered from early cultures.
Western numerology can be traced back to Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who developed a theory of numbers. As in Gematria, Pythagoras posited numbers offered a system for understanding the universe, and he assigned each letter of the alphabet a numeric value. This is the most common form of numerology practiced today, and the number/letter values are based on a table of 9 numerical values.
