In the basic mathematical operation used in numerology, the numbers are reduced by simple addition. The number 15, for instance, is reduced by adding 1 + 5 to get 6. Similarly, the number 1974 can be reduced by adding 1 + 9 + 7 + 4 to get 21. The 21 can be further reduced by adding 2 + 1 to get 3.
In numerology, all numbers are reduced to the single digits 1 through 9 except the special Master numbers 11, 22 and 33. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22 and 33 represent the major vibration rates associated with people’s characteristics.
Letters in individuals’ names are converted to numbers and then added together. These numbers, in turn, are also reduced. The letter A, for instance, is 1; the letter B is 2; the letter C is 3, and so forth. The following table shows the numbers assigned to all 26 letters in the English alphabet.
Let’s look at the example of Angelina Jolie.
By applying simple mathematical formulas to the numbers representing a person’s name and
birth date, a numerologist can derive four major core elements and some twenty or thirty
modifiers. A symbolic evaluation of these elements and modifiers provides a remarkably
complete and accurate character analysis. (About half the information in the analysis,
incidentally, comes from the birth date and half from the name.)
THE SYMBOLISM OF NUMBERS
The symbolic analysis of the single digits and Master numbers is the essence of a numerology
report or any other numerological character analysis. Since so many numbers are present and
modify each other, the analysis is, as you might expect, a considerably complex operation.
When you understand the basic symbolism of the numbers outlined below, though, you’ll have a useful grasp which should make it easier for you to interpret the various parts of the report.
Independence, individuality, attainment; leadership, pioneering, administrating.
Cooperation, closeness, sensitivity; balance and harmony, supportive.
Expressing self, joy of living; enthusiasm, optimism, creativity, sociability.
System and order, service, sense of limitation; managing, working hard, practical, down-to-earth.
Constructive use of freedom; variety, excitement, progressive, creative.
Balance, responsibility, love; supportive, comforting, serving, helping.
Analysis, understanding, introspective; search for truth, spiritual understanding.
Material satisfaction, accomplishment; desire for success, power, recognition.
Selflessness, humanitarianism; giving without thought of return, compassionate.
Illumination, nervous tension; spiritual channel and teacher.
Master builder, latent power, nervous tension; spiritual understanding of material world, high ideals.
Good counselor (often psychic or spiritual), has concern for welfare of masses; a kind of cosmic parent or guardian, creates harmony at home and work, leader in institutions of positive welfare and human service.
