## Numerology is the language of numbers and their symbolic meaning. Each number has its own vibration and its own vibratory influence upon the individual. A person comes into life on a certain date, and with a certain name- numerology uses these numbers to describe who a person is, and to map out that person’s destiny. In all the occult sciences, there are correlations between observable physical phenomena, and the inner workings of people. The universe has provided keys which, when understood, provide excellent tools for the understanding human nature. In numerology, the key relates a person’s name and birthdate with that person’s nature.

Each letter has a numeric value that represents a certain vibration. The numbers in your name and date of birth can give a lot of information about your character, motivation, purpose, and talent. Numerology can be used to find the best time to invest, get a new job, get married, move, and travel. To create a numerology chart, you need your birth date and full name, as written on the birth certificate.

The numbers used in Numerology are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22. Each of these numbers represents different characteristics. The numbers representing your birth date or your name are repeatedly added together until a core number is found, 1 to 9, or one of the master numbers, 11 and 22.

These are the values represented by each letter of the alphabet-

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 |

A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I |

J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R |

S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z |

**The sum of the birthdate determines your Life Path.** This number represents who you are at birth, and the natural characteristics of your personality that will stay with you throughout your life.

**The Life Path number** is derived from your date of birth. First, add the digits of the birth day together, then add the digits of the month together, then add that number to the sum of the birth day. Next, add the digits of the year togther, reducing it down to one digit, and add that to the sum of the month and day, then reduce that number to a single digit 1 through 9, or to the numerology master numbers, 11 or 22. These master numbers are not reduced any further.

For example, if your birthday is December 12, 1986, add the 1 and the 2 of the day together = 3, add the 1 and 2 of the month together = 3, then add the digits of the year together 1+9+8+6 = 24, then add the 2 and the 4 together = 6. Finally add the 3+3+6 = 12, then 1 + 2, so the life path number would be 3.

**The Destiny Number** is derived from all of the letters in your Full Name, as written on your birth certificate. This number defines your life’s purpose. To find your Destiny number, add the letter values of each name separately. Reduce each number to a single digit or master number. Then add the results of all of the names to arrive at a total, which you then reduce to a single digit or master number.
