Established historical greats such as Pythagoras and St.Augustine of Hippo along with cultures as diverse as Hebrew, the Hindu Vedas, Chinese and the Greeks believed in the mettle of numerology. They believed that since this was a mathematical concept and practical it was more convincing in its results and finality.
Today it is considered outside the purview of scientific explanation and experience along with its cousin astrology. Numerology is the ability to understand an occurring event and its relationship with a number. It is believed that everything within the creation oscillates at a certain rate or frequency. If one can decipher this rate, then by applying numerology it can easily be ascertained about the person's character and personality.
The calculation method for numerology although being an art and a science, is quite simple and easily understandable. All the numbers are reduced to single digits of 1 to 9. So 18 would mean addition of the number and 1+8 would give us 9 or 16 would add up becoming 7. However there are two exceptions. The numbers 11 and 22 are reflective of people's traits and characteristics and hence remain the same. The letters in the name of people are also added up and each letter has a definite number. So A would mean 1, B being 2, C stands for 3 and the cycle comes back to 1 after reaching nine.
In numerology fifty percent of the information comes from the name and the remaining half is derived from the date of birth. Although there is no fixed criteria for the meaning of the numbers but there are a few universal standards in prevalence.
1 Is ascertained as individual, leader and masculine.
2 Signifies feminine, receptive and unison.
3 Is commonly used for creation.
4 Denotes to convey or reach out.
5 Is for action or movement.
6 home and Family.
7 Being and spirit.
8 Power or strength.
9 Maximum level of change.
