Numerology understands the past and foretells the future by putting meanings to the numbers in a birth date.
Numerology describes personality, character, self-Image, first impression and career talents by putting numbers with specific meanings to the letters in a name.
Although the fountain of intimate detail and past, present, future accuracy seems mystical, is it magic? No. Numerology is an easy-to-learn system that uses the meanings of the numbers 1 through 9 in various combinations…such as vowels, consonants and all the letters in a name and a person’s month, day and year of birth in various combinations.
After name number and birth date number combinations are calculated, a person’s purpose in the plan of life, nine year and one year cycles, months and days and the character and talent ingredients a person brings to their destiny, is revealed.
Numerology has been passed on from cave people symbolism through the Sumerian culture of 3600 BC on to the Greek humanitarian society of 530 BC when it was modernized by Philosopher/Mathematician, Pythagoras. Remembered by ninth grade students as the ‘guy who invented the Isosceles Triangle.” However, he did a lot more that that!
Pythagoras, ancient Greek “Father of Numbers” was one heck of a guy!
He believed that numbers are within all things……and the modernization of numerology is attributed to this amazing teacher and charismatic Greek teacher/political activist/philosopher/mathematician. He taught that ethics are based in mutual friendship, unselfishness and honesty. He put prophecy and mystical experience on a par with practical living and his destiny prediction may show you how to win the guessing game played each day.
The Progression of Numbers
After divining number meanings for the more self-involved, less community-minded, lower single numbers, one through four, Pythagoras used number five, to symbolize freedom. Five is centered between one through nine, the numbers symbolic of the systematic progression from ego-motivated, self-preservation, to social consciousness, to humanitarianism.
#5 is the turning point number that indicates sensual and practical experiences that makes one aware of how their actions have an effect on others. Five is the catalyst for change that pivots human awareness to higher spiritual awareness.
The numbers six through nine symbolize the steps one takes to expand from family relationship, to neighborhood responsibilities, to inner awareness, to the power to succeed, to universal generosity and attain the greater realization of eternal principles that make men wise.
Pythagoras considered Mathematics, Music and Astronomy the “Triangular Foundation” of all the arts and sciences. He taught his disciples the Theory of Sound and the diatonic scale, by which we tune a piano today. He believed that Mathematics could exist without Music and Astronomy but nothing, including medicine, could be explained without observing their number progressions.

FIND YOUR PERSONAL YEAR NUMBER FOR ANY CALENDAR YEAR
To find your Personal Year Number for 2015:
Add your month of birth number to your day of birth number to the calendar year number and reduce the sum to a single number.
Example: August 8 Birthday in 2015
August, the eighth month of the year, is # 8.
Add 8 (for August) + 8 (day of birth) = 16.
Reduce 16 to a single number: 1 + 6 = #7.
To find Personal Year add the calendar year
number to #7.
In the calendar year, 2015 add 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = #8
The Personal Year number for August 8 birthday in 2015 = 7 + 8 = 15.
REDUCE #15 TO A SINGLE NUMBER. 1 + 5 = #6.
2015 for the August 8 birthday is a #6 Personal Year.
Example: February 13 Birthday in 2015
February, the second month of the year, is #2.
Add 2 (for February) + 13 (the day of birth) = #15.
Reduce 15 to a single number: 1 + 5 = #6.
To find the Personal Year add the calendar year number (2015) to 6.
To reduce 2015 to a single number…add 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8.
To reduce to a single number for a February 13 Personal Year,
add again, 6 + 8 = 14. Reduce 14 to a single number 1 + 4 = #5
The Personal Year number for February 13 in 2015 is # 5
Its fun to know: Your Personal Year number meanings…
…we live in nine-year cycles of experience and begin the process again. We begin our focus on new goals and make changes in a #1 Personal Year and reach a polish and skill of performance, realize that we cannot progress, conclude commitments and prepare for change by letting-go of the people and experiences that are no longer necessary for our growth in the ninth year of the cycle. The year number, after a number nine Personal Year is a number one.
In a #1 Personal Year we plan and are actively conceptualizing the future and making contacts. We receive responses when independently beginning new objectives. There are stops and starts until at year’s end, we have a clear concept and a plan in motion.
In a #2 Personal Year emotions run high. We are sensitive and receptive. We wait, maintain a cooperative approach, detail plans, maintain intimate relationships, keep quiet and observant. We allow the seeds planted in a #1 Personal Year to attract supporters and gel for future use.
In a #3 Personal Year we actively express talents, socialize to communicate ideas, view the future with optimism and receive recognition and responses. Business combines with pleasure. The seeds we planted in the #1 Personal year come to light and are recognized.
In a #4 Personal Year…a reality check! Organization, system and work are key words. Nothing comes easily. We rework details, stabilize objectives, maintain possessions, budget realistically, build and accumulate assets for the future.
In a #5 Personal Year we see surprises, unconventional opportunities and changes. We actively seek experiences that pivot and enlarge ambitions. We take risks: Receive responses and results. #5 keywords are: freedom, adventure, sex, sensuality and publicity.
In a #6 Personal Year we work to maintain harmony in family and neighborhood relationships, take responsibility for our ambitions, make stabilizing adjustments (and often sacrifice personal objectives), broaden relationships and improve and beautify property. We must be discerning when volunteering or when pressed into giving service. Commitments must be chosen carefully as they must be seen through to a conclusion.
In a #7 Personal Year we strive for inner growth; question, research and await developments. We perfect and evaluate goals and delay ambitions. Money comes in if we do not pursue it. Focus is spiritual and intellectual. It is not material or commercial.
In a #8 Personal Year we actively seek to solve problems, express ambitions, plan efficiently, build, work for money & power and we achieve major goals.
In a #9 Personal Year we achieve self-realization, reflect and actively conclude plans and obligations begun in the #1 Personal Year. We clean out our mental, spiritual and material Closets. Nothing new begins as we reflect, clear the decks and prepare for the changes that begin in the incoming #1 Personal Year.
Your Personal Year number remains the same from January 1st through December 31st for each calendar year. The mood and the types of people and experiences you meet changes in October of the preceding year and the incoming calendar year mingles with the present year number and the new year starts seeping in.
For example: In October of 2015, the mood and the types of people and experiences you meet change.
2016’s moods, people and experiences start seeping in. Think back to October 2014 for confirmation.
