Numerology is the numerical interpretation of numbers, dates, and the numerical value of letters. Often numerology is tied to the study of one’s birth to determine the influence on one’s past, present, or future condition. This studygoes back to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Greeks used to apply the number and value of the letters in two combatants names to predict the victor. This science is often referred to as Arithmancy. There are many branches and ground-breakers in numerology.
Geometric is a system of discovering truths and hidden meaning behind words using the numerical values for each letter of the alphabet. Each letter corresponds to different numbers. Then the numerical values of words are totaled and interpreted. The magicians of ancient Babylon in the 8th century B.C. began this method and has been used by the Magi and Quabala. Notarikon is a form of geometria in which the first and last letters of a phrase or word are put together to make a new word or to make a word into a phrase. Temurah is a type of geometria that makes anagrams through systematic letter substitutions. As you can see there are many varied and distinct types of numerology.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Pythagorean Theorem. Well Pythagoras was an ancient greek who founded a school on his own teachings. He was the founder of numerology. He discovered the numerical ratios which determine the concordant intervals of the musical scale. They used these different pitches and believed that the human body was strung off of these few pitches adding to the mix, hot and cold, wet and dry. His doctrine was that everything was in numbers, which can be verified with many computer programmers today.
In reference to the individual, numerology can be the study of magical meanings of numbers and their supposed influence on human life. Supposedly the method can be used to obtain information about one’s personality, capabilities, and future. Numerological considerations include an individual’s full name,birthplace, and birth date. Neurology in reference to one’s name is called onotomancy.
In the science of onotomancy, the numbers of your name can reveal your: Inner Number – which signifies your inner feelings and heart’s desire; Outer Number – your personality and outer persona; Destiny Number – which is your life mission and key to success, and; your Transit Number – The energy of a chosen year. These keys found from your name will help guide you in your quest for self and foreknowledge.

All these help you to map out your life cycles and see where you are in a framework or guidance map.
Often numerology deals with archetypes. For example, the number 5 representing the human, because of the five fingers on a human hand. Another example is the twelve apostles, the twelve divisions of the zodiac, and the twelve months of the year. So if you’re a math major or computer programmer or just are interested in numbers, this study of numerology might be for you!
