Numerology has been around as long as mankind has known how to count. It is a world-wide phenomenon that dates back thousands of years. Numerology also goes by the names numeromancy and arithomancy.

The Hebrews developed the Kabbalah using the numbers from 1 to 22 which corresponded to the letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The Ancient Chinese believed that "the sum total of heavenly numbers and earthly numbers is 55. It is this...which sets the gods and demons in movement."

Modern numerology is based on the teachings of Pythagoras, a philospher of Ancient Greece in the 6th century BC. He wrote a treatise on mathematics from a religious and philosophical perspective. But Pythagoras only used the numbers from 1 to 9 as zero was not yet a concept known to the Ancient Greeks. Pythagoras also related numbers to the letters of the Greek alphabet, alpha being 1, beta 2 etc.

Chaldean numerology is older than Pythagoras, and does not include the number nine when converting the letters to numbers, although the number 9 can occur as the final sum.

Your Birth Number

Add up the numbers of your date of birth. Let's take, for example, a fictitious person born on 22 May 1970 would add up (2+2)+5+(1+9+7+0)=4+5+8 which gives 17. Then add 1+7, giving 8. Number 8 is therefore your birth number. This shows the numerical influence at birth. This reveals your natural characteristics and personality traits.

Your Current Year Number

To find out the numerical influence of the current year, add together the numbers of your birthday this year. The example above would be 22 May 2001, (2+2)+5+(2+0+0+1)=12, 12 further reduces to 3. So the numerical influence for this year would be 3. This influence begins on the birthday and continues through to the birthday in the following year.

1 New beginnings. Great new opportunities start developing. Time to be assertive and daring!

Your Name Number

To find your name number, convert the letters of your name to numbers using the table below. You should work with the name you are normally known by, not necessarily your full formal name. A name number reveals acquired, developed traits.


Let's say this fictitious person is called Jenny Doe.
Her name number is calculated:
JENNY 1+5+5+5+7=23=5
DOE 4+6+5=15=6
Therefore Jenny Doe's name number is 2.

If Jenny was to start using her full name, Jennifer, the name number would change to 6:
JENNIFER 1+5+5+5+9+6+5+9=45=9
DOE 4+6+5=15=6

Your Name Number: Inner Personality

Add up the numbers associated with the vowels in the name. This number reveals your inner, private personality.

JENNY DOE --> -E--Y -OE becomes 5+7+6+5=23=5

Therefore her private personality is ruled by the number 5.

Your Name Number: Outer Personality

Add up the numbers associated with the consonants in the name. This number reveals your outer, public face.

JENNY DOE --> J-NN- D-- becomes 1+5+5+4=15=6

Lottery Numbers

I am constantly asked about winning numbers. If it was that easy to choose the winning numbers then every psychic who claims to do so would have won years ago and wouldn't need to work now. Frankly, if it is your fate to win, you will win through a combination of the right circumstances plus a few unlikely coincidences. It wouldn't matter whether you were a regular player or only played one time only.

So nothing is guaranteed by the following randomly generated numbers. That is because winning depends on your own personal luck and fate.
