It never fails that whenever I start thinking about numbers or numerology, I immediately start hearing “numbers, numbers, everywhere!”. I must have seen that Blues Clues episode a few too many times, but that can happen when you have kids! It very much is the truth though and numbers ARE everywhere!! This is somewhat a secondary posting off of my 11:11 Are YOU Awakened? post. While they are somewhat different topics, the numbers meanings hold true across many modalities.
Numerology is the study of numbers and their influence on life. It’s an arithmetic system that reveals your character, personality, and experiences through applying daily and yearly progression. Numerology can provide a deep karmic profile when we apply the meaning of individual numbers to our birth name, given name and birth date. Just as a natal astrological chart is cast at the time of your birth and gives you an outlook on your life, numerology has the capability of doing the same thing. By using your name and your birth date, a numerologist is able to provide an interpretive profile.
The numbers of our name describe the things we were born knowing. The numbers of our birth date describe the things we need to learn. By adding the birth month and day with the current year, we’re given our Personal Year Number. The most common of Numerology readings is the Life Path Number, which takes the birth month, day, and year.
