I have created these numerology pages to help people learn a little bit about modern numerology.

I've recently become interested in numerology myself, and I've been spending time reading about it and learning how to interpret some of the important number "vibrations". I am certainly not the most knowledgeable source of information around, but I can help to explain some of what each of the different numerical vibrations represent, and I can show you how to derive some of the more important numbers that give you some information about yourself.
What's in a Number?

Numerology itself can be called an esoteric science. The word esoteric is defined as private or secret; something that was hidden for only a select few initiates. Throughout history, certain ideas or beliefs were kept secret from the general public for selected people who were deemed ready to learn them by the "guardians" of the knowledge. These ideas were protected not only to preserve the knowledge itself, but also to preserve those who were familiar with them. Even in today's modern and relatively accepting society, the so called esoteric beliefs or sciences are often scoffed at or considered "occultism" or "witchcraft". Esoteric knowledge inludes ancient belief systems or sciences such as alchemy, the kabbalah, numerology, astrology, and the tarot, among others. Today, many people are returning to these original sciences for guidance and understanding of the different pathways leading to God or their true inner selves. Unfortunately, since these sciences were so well guarded, it is not always easy, even today, to find the true essence of them. Numerology history can in part be traced back to ancient Greece, and Pythagoras has often been called the father of numerology. I personally believe the science is much older than Pythagoras' time. However, Pythagoras and his followers not only felt that each number has a quantitative value, but they also felt that each number has a distinct qualitative vibration. Each number's quality is represented by the number itself. For example, the number one represents creative force, leadership, the male principle, singularity, independence, linearity, and rebirth or resurrection among other ideas. This representation is implicit to the number one itself, as from zero or nothing, comes one or something; thus creation. The general idea behind creating a numerological chart is that you can learn something about yourself or your friends by looking at the numbers that correspond to their name and their birth date. This may seem rather foolish but under the postulation that the universe is all connected, then in the pursuit of knowledge, it may help us to take a look at representations of our day of birth. Numbers themselves are truly only representations of ideas, they have no physical form. Have you ever seen a number? Numerology then, is viewed by myself as a simplification of the logical path of ideas our mind could follow even without the number itself. Traditionally, numerologists look at your birth name and your birth date primarily. Of course you can take numerology as far as you would like by looking at your street address, your last birthday, today's date, and so on. All of these numbers have some informative value. Some might argue, as I have in the past, that numerology can not make sense because dates themselves are only relevant to the passing of Christ (which date itself has been

If you were to reduce an 11 however. For this example. In some numerology application. and different countries and cultures use different calendars. Basics / Math In basic numerology. these concerns are not founded. Basically. I currently believe that due to the cyclic nature of the practice of numerology. Lets reduce the number 74. 74 = 7 + 4 =11 Because 11 is a master number. These nine numbers are the digits 1 through 9. This way you can judge for yourself just how applicable this old "science" can be. we don't reduce further. you would add the 1 + 1 to get a 2.in dispute). there is a special consideration for the digit 0. There is also special treatment of the numbers 11 and 22. Let's try another one. you simply add each of the digits of the number. This indicates that the master number 11 is a "higher vibration" of the . to reduce any number down to its single-digit vibration. Some forms of numerology treat other numbers as master numbers as well. The numbers 1 through 9 represent the stages through which an idea or thought must progress prior to becoming manifest. but we will stick to 11 and 22 for our purposes. So. For example. The master numbers can be reduced down to a single digit as well. these are referred to as "master numbers". the result of reducing 1998 is 9. lets reduce the year 1998: 1998 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 8 =27 Because 27 is still not a basic number (1 through 9). They also represent the stages through all natural evolutionary cycles universally. let's get started and I'll demonstrate what the basic numerical vibrations represent and how to make up a simple chart. nor is it a master number (11 or 22). but for simplicity we will not be concerned with that here. we must reduce it further: 27 = 2 + 7 =9 You would continue reducing any number that is greater than one digit unless you come to a master number. but they represent higher vibrations of the idea that they can be reduced down into. there are nine numbers or vibrations that you want to reduce any greater number down into.

You will also want to remember that a 22 vibration is related to a 4 vibration for this same reason. in numerology we often want to look at words or names. different mappings have been developed for different languages. and so reducing further. you will probably want to memorize the table above. Let's look at reducing a few words. Here are a few more: PLAY = 7 + 3 + 1 + 7 = 18 . or create a quick reference table for yourself. you must have a method to convert the word into a number. Here is the mapping of the letters of the English alphabet to their numerical equivalents: ---------------------paint-------------------- through your numerology study.number 2. Throughout numerology history. you will want to keep in mind that the 11 vibration is related to a 2 vibration. 1 + 8 =9 COOPERATE = 3 + 6 + 6 + 7 + 5 + 9 + 1 + 2 + 5 = 44 =8 MIND = 4 + 9 + 5 + 4 =22 BODY = 2 + 6 + 4 + 7 = 19 = 10 =1 (1 + 0 = 1) SPIRIT = 1 + 7 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 37 = 10 =1 . Here's the word "WORK": WORK = 5 + 6 + 9 + 2 =22 22 is a master number and so you would not reduce it any further. When we discuss the meanings of each number vibration. (Maybe print this page and cut out the table above). Besides looking at dates. In order to represent a word as a number.

life processes can be associated with cycles that can be broken down into these nine major vibrations. You may find that if you look back nine years prior to now. So. you can start to analyze certain names and words by reducing them down to their primary number and interpreting the meaning based on the keywords above. in numerology each number represents a particular quality. First I will demonstrate how to correctly reduce the birthdate to derive the Life Lesson number. Number Vibrations As I mentioned earlier. Next. and how to derive meaning from them. first reduce 1967 down to a two-digit number: 1 + 9 + 6 + 7 = 23.digit year number to the month and day of birth to get another number. The Life Lesson is the number derived from your birth date.Once you understand basic numerology math. Next. .paint2-------------------Don't forget that the two master numbers can also be reduced down to 2 and 4 respectively to get a further understanding of their meanings. so we get 4 + 28 + 23 = 55. Next. To begin. With just the information that we have covered so far. you add that two. we reduce the 55 down to one of the primary numbers or master numbers: 5 + 5 = 10. 1967. 1 + 0 = 1. you can get a more applicable interpretation of those numbers. we add the month and day to that 23. or you may find that your outlook on life was similar to how things appear now.

I'll use my birth date as an example: I was born on April 28. Finally. lets look at the numbers that make up the numerological chart. This means that my Life Lesson number is a 1. A person¶s progression through time itself is also assumed to go through cycles of nine. On a universal scale. the different digits from 1 through 9 represent the various steps any idea must progress through prior to becoming manifest. you reduce that number down to one of the 9 primary vibrations or a master number (11 or 22). Each numerical vibration can be interpreted in general terms. but as you learn what the different numbers associated with your birth date and birth name represent. lets take a look at the esoteric meanings of each numerical vibration. you may have had some similar events occur during that year. you reduce the year of birth down to a two-digit number (this step is important in retaining the proper master numbers). -------------paint1.
