Numerology: Meaning, History and Its Uses
Throughout the ages, numerology has challenged and mystified many. Its history is intricate and its uses are plentiful. When we harness and utilize the wisdom that lies within numbers we are given an insight into ourselves, past, present, and future.
What is Numerology?
Numerology is the study of numbers. It is believed, in spiritual communities, that numbers have different energies and meanings. Each number has its divine connection to Source which can tell us about who we are, predict the future, and give us insights into our past.
This form of divination has been practiced by many cultures and civilizations around the world. Not only does this correspond with individual numbers and sequences, but numerology also focused on the numerical value of letters. Each letter has a specific value that can give insights into how a person’s name impacts their life path.
It is a universal language that has brought countless people together from different backgrounds and creeds. The predictions and wisdom that it offers have made it a popular tool in this modern age. Many rely upon it as a form of divination that can help to shed light on the intrinsic value of numbers and how their vibration influences our lives.
Often, the meaning of numbers is applied to the principles of angel numbers. These are cryptic messages that are sent to us in the form of numerical sequences. These synchronicities appear when least expected and it is common for the same angel number to make a frequent appearance.
Types of Numerology
There are many different forms of numerology that each has its own set of rules. However, there are four main types:
1. Chaldean Numerology

Their form of numerology was built upon the belief that everything in the universe is formed by vibrations, the principle was applied to numbers. The numbers 1-8 are part of their numerological chart, however 9 was left out as it was considered to be sacred.
2. Kabbalah Numerology
This type of numerology is Hebrew in origin. It focuses on the name of the individual as opposed to the birth date. There are more than 400 values in this system, however the most common number is the main focus.

There are several that are deemed as special due to their extra sense of potential. These are referred to as master numbers and there are three in existence – 11, 22, and 33.
Master Number 11
11 is the master teacher or the karmic teacher. It brings enlightenment, inspiration and can evoke psychic abilities. This mystical number is ruled by Neptune, the planet which is linked to spirituality and extrasensory observations. It is also related to the tarot card Justice and the archangel Uriel.
Master Number 22
22 is referred to as the master builder. It vibrates with the ancient wisdom of the universe and manifests dreams into reality.
Life Path Number
A person’s life path number is their purpose. In this sense, it is similar to their sun sign as it shows their strengths, weaknesses, and ambitions. It can be calculated by adding the figures in a birth date.
For example, if we want to work out the life path number for the birth date 17th November 1993 we would do the following calculation where we reduce each digit down to a single number:
21th: 2+1 = 3
November : 11th month : 1+1 = 2
1962 : 1 + 9 + 6 + 2 = 18 : 1+8 = 9
Then, the remaining figures (3 + 2 + 9) are added together to make 14. We then do the final part of the sum which is to add 1+4, this gives us the life path number 5.
|Life Path Number 1||Life Path Number 2||Life Path Number 3|
|Life Path Number 4||Life Path Number 5||Life Path Number 6|
|Life Path Number 7||Life Path Number 8||Life Path Number 9|
|Life Path Number 11||Life Path Number 22||Life Path Number 33|
Soul Urge Number
|Soul Urge Number 1||Soul Urge Number 2||Soul Urge Number 3|
|Soul Urge Number 4||Soul Urge Number 5||Soul Urge Number 6|
|Soul Urge Number 7||Soul Urge Number 8||Soul Urge Number 9|
|Soul Urge Number 11||Soul Urge Number 22|
Personal Year Number
With every year that passes everybody has a personal year number that sets its tone and direction. The purpose of the calendar year is deciphered by the energy of this number. To calculate this we need the day that we were born, the month, and the year that we want to analyze. These figures are then added together to form a single-digit number.
To demonstrate we will use the birthday 17th July 1993.
17th : 1 + 7 = 8
July : the 7th month : 7
2021 : 2+0+2+1 : 5
We then add the last figures 8 + 7 + 5 which equals 20. It is important to note that at this stage if this figure is a master number then it should not be reduced further. This concept is also applied to the life path number calculation. However, as this example is comprised of 2 numbers that are not master numbers we add them again to further reduce it which gives us the Personal Year Number 2.
