Numerology provides a complete personality lifestyle profile when we apply the meaning of individual numbers to our birth name and birth date.
Your name and your birth date are the data base from which a numerologist is able to describe you, sight unseen. Number values are assigned to the letters in your name. By adding these--with the numbers in your birth date – in a multitude of combinations, a numerologist establishes your key numbers. He or she then interprets the meaning of these key numbers, which results in a complete description of your personal characteristics.
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. As you examine your Numerology Reading, you'll find a great deal of insight about yourself.
Chaldean System – For this presentation we will use the Pythagorean System. Elements of the Chaldean System are:
Let us explain. Say, for example, that you're name was John Doe. You're name number would be 8. Confused? It's really not that difficult. First you write out the name:
The next step is to find the numerological values of each letter in the name:
J o h n D o e
1 6 8 5 4 6 5
Now add the numbers together:
1+6+8+5+4+6+5 = 35
And finally, add the result numbers together:
3+5 = 8
It's as simple as that!
It is also possible to figure you're birth number with numerology. For instance, if you were born on June 11, 1962.
Write out the date in numbers:
6 11, 1962
Then figure normally:
6+1+1+1+9+6+2 = 26 = 8
You're birth number would be 8. Note it is very important that you do not forget the 19 in 1962, because there are still people who were born in the late 1800's, and the 2000's are rapidly approaching.
In order to use numerology for divination, you have two be given a specific information. Here is one scenario:
You are Sally Jones. Your Boyfriend, Rick Albertson and you have just decided to get married. You know that the marriage stands a good chance of surviving, because you're birth numbers match. Now you can use numerology to help you decide on a name for your children, where to live, what date to have the marriage ceremony on, and even what color drape to have in your house!
As you can see from the above example, numerology goes far beyond the uses I have explained here, and there are many books available on the topic. We also have two wonderful courses on Numerology. NU-100 Basic Numerology and NU-101 advanced Numerology

There are 3 double-digit numbers that, while they are rooted in the single-digit numbers, require special emphasis and attention. These are 11, 22, and 33. They are called Master numbers because they possess more potential than other numbers. They are highly charged, difficult to handle, and require time, maturity, and great effort to integrate into one's personality.
The 11 is the most intuitive of all numbers. It represents illumination; a channel to the subconscious; insight without rational thought; and sensitivity, nervous energy, shyness, and impracticality. It is a dreamer. The 11 has all the aspects of the 2, enhanced and charged with charisma, leadership, and inspiration. It is a number with inborn duality, which creates dynamism, inner conflict, and other catalyses with its mere presence. It is a number that, when not focused on some goal beyond itself, can be turned inward to create fears and phobias. The 11 walks the edge between greatness and self-destruction. Its potential for growth, stability, and personal power lies in its acceptance of intuitive understanding, and of spiritual truths. For the 11, such peace is not found so much in logic, but in faith. It is the psychic's number.
The 22 is the most powerful of all numbers. It is often called the Master Builder. The 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality. It is potentially the most successful of all numbers. It has many of the inspirational insights of the 11, combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the 4. It is unlimited, yet disciplined. It sees the archetype, and brings it down to earth in some material form. It has big ideas, great plans, idealism, leadership, and enormous self-confidence. If not practical, the 22s waste their potential. Like the 11, the 22 can easily shrink from its own ambition, causing difficult interior pressures. Both the 11 and the 22 experience the pressure-cooker effect very strongly, particularly at an early age. It must work toward the realization of goals that are larger than personal ambition. The 22 serves the world in a practical way.
The 33 is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Teacher. The 33 combines the 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others. The 33 in full force is extremely rare.
The number 33 only matters when found among the core numbers: The Life Path, Heart's Desire, Expression, Personality, Maturity number, or as an Essence cycle or Pinnacle cycle. In all other cases the 33 should be reduced to a 6. The fact that the 33 is extra-ordinary demanding and rare can be seen symbolically in the methods of calculation. For example, a 33 Life Path can happen only when each of the 3 units of the birth date (month/year/day) add to 11. Or when the year adds to 22 (in the 20th century there are only 7 years that add to 22: 1939, 48, 57, 66, 75, 84, and 93) and the month and day of birth combined total is 11. And finally, when the birth day is 22 and the month and year of birth total 11.
Day of Birth: The Day of Birth is the first personal number we are aware of, one which we quickly learn to identify.It is a powerful indicator of your point of view and general stance in the world. In reading a chart, always look first at the birth date to give you a point of reference. Use the Day of Birth to identify your general characteristic and look to see how it is supported (or overridden) by your other major numbers. If the Day of Birth does not seem to fit, it may be that the major number totals affect it in unexpected ways.
Birthpath: Who am I? What do I do best? What are my natural abilities?The answers to these questions are found in your Birthpath number. This number indicates who you are as you begin life – your natural tendencies, your abilities, and your attitude toward the world. It is the unchangeable aspect of your chart and therefore denotes your basic and eternal qualities. Even though you may have the same Birthpath number as someone else, differences in the month, day and/or year will account for variations you may see between their attitudes and yours. The lessons of your month number dominate your life until approximately age 28. The lessons of your day of the month dominate your life until approximately age 56. The lessons of your year number dominate your life after age 56.
Realization: The question, "What will be my major accomplishment?"is answered by your Realization number. It differs from the Destiny in that it describes what you will accomplish due to the combination of who you are (Birthpath) and what opportunities you are given (Destiny). Its influence is felt increasingly as you grow older.
Habit Challenge: What habitual response do I have that might be considered negative? The Habit Challenge defines an area of your personality you may wish to improve: a tendency, which, when unbalanced, can become too much of a good thing; or a weak aspect you should develop. The challenge is to balance yourself between the two extremes of the Habit Challenge number. For instance, if your Habit Challenge is a Two, you are either too sensitive and timid (letting others make your decisions) or you need to practice more cooperation and sensitivity. It is not unusual that a person tends to exhibit both sides of the polarity depending on circumstances.
Balance of Temperament: How do I operate at the everyday level?The Planes of Expression, Physical, Mental, Emotional and Intuitive, organize your responses to everyday environments and prompt you to make certain choices (which reflect your Heart's Desire). The Balance of Temperament is determined by examining where the components of your name fit among these four Planes. For example, you may have already decided that you are an "emotional" person; or you may be known for strong mental liabilities. You may describe someone as being intuitive or the "earthy" type.
