Numerology is the study of numbers and how they influence people’s lives. For centuries, humans have recognized that certain numbers seem to have mystical power and that the meanings of numbers can reveal helpful insights. A modern approach to numerology is to create a numerology chart that calculates a variety of key numbers based on a person’s full name and date of birth.
Understand How Numbers Are Derived
Before reading the chart, it’s helpful to understand the basic principles of deriving numbers. For example, the Life Path number, one of the most important values, is calculated by adding up the digits in a person’s date of birth. If the person was born on June 4, 1984, for example, the digits are added together as 6 + 4 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 4, which equals 32. Those digits are then added together (3 + 2) to yield the Life Path number 5. Each number is derived differently, but adding digits and reducing double digit numbers to single digits are both common strategies.
Understand The Most Important Values
A chart is full of numbers, and it can be overwhelming to someone who hasn’t seen one before. It’s important to understand that certain values are more important than others. The Life Path number, for example, is often considered to be the most significant number in a person’s life. It relates to the overall flow and direction of one’s life’s journey and can provide insight into both opportunities and challenges. Another key number on the chart is the Expression number, which is derived from a person’s full name at birth. Each letter is assigned a number, and the numbers of each name are added up and simplified to single digits. The Expression number reveals a person’s unique talents, abilities, and personality traits, and it can help a person find his or her best career path.
Understand How Numbers Relate To Each Other
This last piece of advice is something that requires study and practice. In addition to the two main categories mentioned above, a chart contains many other values, such as a Maturity number, a Hidden Passions number, and a Personality number, to name a few. Understanding the relationships between these values can help people gain deeper insight into their lives, relationships, and inner selves.
