My introduction to numerology was when I had my own chart explained to me. I found the subject so fascinating that I decided to study it in more detail and enrolled with Claudine Aegerter who established the Connaissance School of Numerology.
My work now includes The Tarot, which is steeped in symbolism and links closely with the numbers.
Numbers hold a special place in our lives – our birthday, anniversaries and the numbers we consider to be personally lucky. By identifying and interpreting their hidden meaning and symbolism we can gain considerable insight into the influence they exert in our live and those around us.
A numerology chart is created by analysing the date of birth for a person (name numbers can be analysed too). Every number has an energy it vibrates to; with understanding of your personal numbers, you can gain insight into your own unique energy or vibration.
There is a common belief that we “are one number” which is often found by adding up the whole birth date. I believe more can be discovered by taking the whole chart into consideration as we are complex individuals and cannot be defined by just one number!
Every number has a positive side to it and a more challenging side to it too. You are not necessarily going to have all the positive or negative traits of each number but at different times in your life you may work with both aspects.
In the competitive business world, Numerology can be a powerful and transforming tool that can be used in a variety of ways:-
We live our life in nine year cycles that begin at birth and progress throughout our life. When a 9 year cycle is complete we start a new cycle. Each cycle has its own opportunities and lessons to be learned.
Your Personal Year number for any given year is based on adding your:-
For example : 4th October
Birthday is 4
Month is 10
Year 2020 is 2 + 2 = 4
Now add together : 4 + 10 + 4 = 18
Always reduce to a single digit number.
1 + 8 = 9 Personal Year is a 9
Be ready for major changes, new beginnings and opportunities
Harmony, balance, personal relationships
Creativity, self-expression, personal growth
Building foundations, practical matters, work
Change, travel, new direction
Family, friends, community, responsibility, harmony
Self-analysis, reflection, time to rest, intuition
Back in the world, business, the material world
Ending and new beginnings, completion
Numerology is the study of the art or science of Numbers and the influence Numbers have on our lives. From a philosophic point of view: – Numbers represent ‘qualities’ and figures represent ‘quantities’.
The roots of numerology can be traced back thousands of years as people have always been looking at ways to bring deeper meaning to their lives. However, we owe much of our spiritual and scientific understanding of numbers to the Greek philosopher Pythagoras who lived between 582 and 507 BC. Pythagoras was a remarkable man or avatar.
Pythagoras established his School Of Mysteries in Italy when he was 52 years old, where his students were taught the foundations of arithmetic, music, astronomy, geometry and esoteric knowledge, which included the secrets of number and vibration.
Pythagoras is credited as being The Father of Numerical Analysis, or Numerology. He believed that the key to the universe was concealed in the science of numbers and that everything in the universe evolved in cycles; his means of measuring these cycles were the numbers 1-9. Every number above that ultimately reduces to one of these digits, for example 17/8 or 25/7. Although we primarily work with the single digits the full number has its own specific energy and it is important to see where the single digit has come from, for example 35/8 is quite different from a 53/8.

The numbers 11, 22, and 33 also require special attention and are known as the Master Numbers. Master Numbers accentuate the meanings of the single digits. They are called Master Numbers because they possess the potential to achieve more but may have to do more to reach their goal. The Masters Numbers are powerful numbers that require maturity and effort to integrate into one’s personality.
If a person is living to his or her highest potential they would express the qualities of the master number; otherwise they revert back to the single digit – 22 or 4 for example. Most people are not able to live up to the highest potential all the time and generally their energy dips between the higher and lower numbers.
What is more personal to us than our Name? Your name is a form of identification in whatever culture you live.
The name that appears on your birth certificate is considered your “Name at Birth” and no matter how many times this is changed it remains at the foundation.
In business, choosing the name of your company is important as this is the energy that your business is expressing! On a personal note, if you change your name, look carefully at the energy that name is expressing!
The Birth Date:
While a name may change your birth date is a constant. These numbers represent important influences in our life and hold an enormous amount of information that is broken down and analysed when creating a numerology chart.
