INSIDE: Astrology and numerology have a funny way of showing us the right path to take. We see them as angel numbers and synchronicities, but we can also use them to read our numerology charts! These charts can reveal our deepest desires, personalities, talents, and qualities. Here's how...
Numbers are not just mathematical symbols. They have a vibration of their own, with meaning and symbolism that can help us understand the greater mysteries of life.
According to Medium, even Nikola Tesla called numbers 3, 6, and 9 the Secret of the Universe.
Numerology can offer not only a way of understanding life and connecting with the Universe; it can also help us learn more about ourselves and others.
Here's how the unique vibration of numerology numbers can be linked with astrology and numerology….
What is Numerology?
Similar to astrology, numerology uses centuries-old knowledge to describe our personalities.
Every number has its vibration and meaning, which can be used to bring greater understanding about who we are, what our mission is, and what our soul craves in order to feel fulfilled and free.
The numerology chart is similar to the astrological natal chart in that it can show us our potential, gifts, challenges, and temperament, or reveal our deepest desires and needs. It can also help us create a psychological profile of a person and help us understand their unique vibration.
While in astrology, we read charts based on planetary influences, in numerology we rely on the power of numbers to help us calculate and understand the psychological and spiritual profile of a person.
Astrology and numerology are very similar in the sense that they can both help us understand the world around us, and most importantly, ourselves.
Although there are a few types of Numerology, the most frequently used type is that which is based on Pythagorean principles. In a Pythagorean table, every letter has a value.
What Are Numerology Numbers?
To dive into the world of Numerology, you only need to know your birth date and use the Pythagorean Numerology Table to calculate the value of each letter, consonant, and vowel in your full given name.
When reading a numerology chart, there are 5 key numbers to look for. These are called the core numbers and they represent the “spine” of our Numerology chart.
They are all calculated from either our given name or birth date, both of which are extremely personal to us, which is what makes these numbers so important. Let’s see what they are...
Life Path Number
The Life Path number is calculated by adding the digits of your birth date until you have a single-digit number. For instance, if you were born on the 20th of September 1992, your Life Path Number would be 5 (2+0+9+1+9+9+2 = 32 = 5)
Life Path Number reveals the basic information about your personality and holds the clues to understanding the direction you are meant to go in to feel fulfilled and whole.
It is often seen as a karmic number in the sense that it can show us our unique life path, where we are headed in life, and what inner resources and challenges we will face on our journey.
Astrology and numerology meet in a beautiful and informative way when we combine the Life Path Number with interpretations of the Sun.
Expression Number or Destiny Number
Unlike the Life Path number, the Expression number, otherwise known as the Destiny number, is calculated by adding the value of each letter in your full name to get a number.
The value of each letter is found in the Numerology Pythagorean Table. However, if you want to jump right into it, you can calculate your Expression number here: Free Expression Number Calculator.
The expression number represents our inborn talents, as well as our life goals and what we strive to become. This number is not only a representation of ambition as something external, but it reveals our innermost type of motivation, helping us understand the force that drives us forward.
This number can reveal what our strengths are, as well as what our inner limitations and how we can overcome them.
The Personality number is calculated by adding the value of the consonants of your full name only by following the Pythagorean table until you get a single-digit number from 1 to 9.
Just like the name says, this number reveals our personality, who we strive to be, and how we show up in the world. The Personality number is similar to the Rising Sign in astrology in the sense that it represents our basic identity and how people see us.
This is a number of personal that demonstrates how we want to be recognized. It is the controlled part of ourselves. In other words, it's what we feel comfortable sharing with the outer world.
Heart's Desire or Soul Urge Number
Astrology and numerology can both show us our deepest desires and motives as well. This is exactly what the Heart's Desire number is all about. It is number that is derived by adding the value of vowels in your full name by following the Pythagorean numerology table until you get to a single-digit number.
The Heart's Desire quite literally represents our heart's deepest desires. It is associated with our deepest emotional needs and how we want to love and be loved. It reveals the type of fire that burns within and the untamed desires in us, whatever those may be for you individually.
Calculating the Birthday number is the easiest part, as all you need to know is the day you were born. Unlike other numbers, this number is not reduced, so if you were born on the 28th day in the month, your birthday number is 28.
Obviously, this number can be any number from 1 to 31. Although not reduced, each can be grouped to fit the vibration of a single digits number.
- Those born on 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th can resonate with Number 1.
- Those born on 2nd, 20th, and 29th can resonate with Number 2.
- Those born on 3rd, 12th, and 30th can resonate with Number 3.
- Those born on 4th, 13th, and 31st can resonate with Number 4.
- Those born on 5th, 14th, and 23rd can resonate with Number 5.
- Those born on the 6th, 15th, and 24th can resonate with Number 6.
- Those born on 7th, 16th, and 25th can resonate with Number 7.
- Those born on the 8th, 17th, and 26th can resonate with Number 8.
- Those born on the 9th, 18th, and 27th can resonate with Number 9.
A Birthday number adds a special flavor to your personality, similar to our natal chart placements, which are also determined by the date of your birth.
Both astrology and numerology can show our disposition, how we approach life in general, and our character, and this is especially true with the numerological Birthday Number.
It shows our basic temperament, what we give our energy to, and how highly charged or peaceful we are. Birthday numbers also show basic personality traits that we carry with us from the day we are born, such as how slow or fast we move in life or how creative or logical we are.
