Numerology is a spiritual tool used for self‐analysis and growth. It centers upon the belief that we chose our lives in order to grow as a soul and so that we may eventually become enlightened. Reincarnation is a major factor in numerology as is karma. On our spiritual journey, we make decisions and take actions, creating karma along the way. In each lifetime, we are dealing with karma from our past lives as well as from our current life.
Numerology helps you explore the various aspects of yourself and your environment so that you can better understand your soul’s journey. The actions which we take in this lifetime can help us grow as a soul. By knowing your numerology profile, you can be better informed and make wiser decisions. You don’t have to believe in reincarnation or karma in order to benefit from numerology, but it certainly helps makes sense of your profile.
Numbers do not have power over you ‐ you always have free will. However, it’s important to realize there’s more at work in a person’s life than just what you see on the surface. Numbers contain two major elements: a vibrational frequency that attracts certain energy like a magnet, and a potential for spiritual attraction and connection. Your personal numbers create a template for the energy in your life. Numerology can help you understand how to live in accordance with your own natural energy or how to change it.
Once you become aware of the principles of numerology and the meanings behind your numbers, you’ll have the code to change the energy surrounding your life to a harmonious vibration that allows you to be more successful and reach your highest potential.
Numerology can work hand in hand with astrology and the tarot as well, which is why I include a general overview of it, along with astrology, when I perform tarot readings for clients. These three branches of metaphysical knowledge are wonderful tools for gaining a greater understanding of what we are all doing here in this life.
Your Numerology Profile
There are a number of different schools of thought in Numerology and therefore some of the calculations are called slightly different names. Generally speaking, there is one that always remains the same that is your Life Path Number. This is the number derived from your birth day and it never changes. The Life Path Number gives you a general idea of what direction your life is headed and how you can best use numbers to assist you in your path. It also shows your main personality traits that you will show when interacting with others, it's a bit like the sun sign in astrology.
There are, of course, many other calculations in your numerology profile and each one represents different facets of your life. For a complete profile, I recommend that you see a professional numerologist but for now, knowing your Life Path Number and your Personal Timing numbers can be a nice and practical use of numerology in your everyday life.
To calculate your Life Path Number, simply add the numbers of your birth date together until you get a single digit. Break it down as far as you go unless you get 11, 22 or 33 (see below).
Example: 6/26/2012 would be: 6+2+6+2+0+1+2 = 19 which is 1+9 = 10 which is 1+0 = 1.
The only exception to that is if you get a Master Number of 11, 22 or 33. Do not break those down. The Master Numbers carry a higher frequency and can therefore be more of a difficult path for people. It requires mastery but not everyone can live up to that so often times you will meet a Master Number but they do not live up to their potential so they instead operate at the lower frequency of the numbers being added together. For example, a 22 person may not live up to the potential of the Mastery required so they would instead operate at the level of the 4. That is why you will often see Master Numbers depicted as such: 11/2, 22/4 and 33/6.

Calculating numbers in Numerology is pretty easy. Just add all the numbers together to find the answer (remember to reduce all numbers to a single digit unless the final answer is a master number: 11, 22 or 33). Let's use my birthday, March 15 as an example to see exactly how this is done. Don't worry, after a little practice you'll get it down pretty quick.
Using this information in combination with your astrology chart will really give you an advantage in planning your activities!
How to calculate your personal timing numbers
Personal Year (birth month + birth year + calendar year)
You can calculate your personal year by adding your birth month to your birth day plus the calendar year. So using March 15 as the birthday, it is calculated as such:
3 + 15 + 2014 = 7 (remember to reduce all numbers to a single digit unless the final answer is a master number; 11, 22, 33)
Let's break it down so you can see how this is done:
3 + 1+5 + 2+0+1+4 = 16 (1+6) = 7
or if you prefer break it down by each component as such:
3 + 6 + 7 = 7
Personal Month (personal year + calendar month)
You can calculate your personal month by adding your personal year number to the calendar month. So using March 15 as the birthday still, the month of December is calculated as such:
7 + 12 = 1
Let's break it down:
7 + 1 + 2 = 19
1+9 = 10
1+0 = 1
or if you prefer break it down by each component as such:
7 + 3 = 1
Personal Day (personal month + calendar day)
You can calculate your personal day by adding your personal month number + the calendar day. Continuing with March 15 as the example birthday, the day of December 1, 2014 is calculated as such:
1 + 1 = 2
This one's pretty simple, right?
Knowing your personal numbers for any time of the year can give you an advantage in planning for your life, not to mention give you greater understanding of your personal journey. Numerology is an easy yet fascinating tool. I encourage you to start using it in your everyday life and see for yourself.
