The invention of numbers revolutionized society. Tallies on bones allowed ancient people to record the resources they had. It also allowed them to better record and understand the passage of time. From there, humans started associating numbers with days and years. These dates allow our society to have structure. There are more to learn from these dates, though. Numerology is the study of numbers as they pertain to oneself. Much like everyone has a sign, everyone has a personal number hidden inside their birth date. From this, one can gain a better understanding of themselves and their future. Find out how you can learn about the numbers that guide your life.
Numerology may be all about numbers, but it doesn’t take a degree in them. In fact, all you need to know is some basic addition. In short, you find most numbers by reducing dates to single digit or master numbers (master numbers are 11, 22, and 33). You then add them together and reduce them to a single digit.
This is something understood a little bit easier in practice. One of the most important numbers in numerology is the life path number. It come from the complete birth date, and gives the most information about a person’s personality. Let’s find one using the example birthday February 28, 1984. First, you reduce the month, day and year individually:
* Month: 2 (February is the second month. 2 is a single digit, no need to reduce.)
* Day: 1 (Break 28 into 2 and 8, add them together to get 10. Break 10 into 1 and 0, add them to get 1.)
* Year: 22 (1984 breaks into 1+9+8+4 and together they make 22. This is a master number and doesn’t need to reduce.)
2+1+22=25, 25 breaks apart and then adds together to get 2+5=7. This person would have a life path number of 7, falling into the category of “the seeker”. This type of person searches to uncover the mysteries of life and often prefers to work on their own.
If you don’t want to do this on your own, there are calculators that can walk you through the process. For example, this one will calculate your life path. http://www.tokenrock.com/numerology/life_path.php
The Number Of The Year
Most fortunes are specific. They rely on a single person’s birthday, name, or the way the shuffle the cards. Sometimes, though, there are times when a forecast can apply for a wide group. Though we are all born at different times in different years, many regard the year we are currently experiencing as 2015. Numerology can analyze this number to give a general outline for the year. By adding the digits of 2015, you can tell that this is an eight year. Eight is a power of two, which means it is a number achieved by multiplying two by two by two. As you might expect, that makes this a year of balance. With the past few years seeing plenty of turmoil, it’s time for a rest. The number is also tied to money, which means that the economy might see the brunt of the change.
