Beginning in Greece around 600 B.C., mathematical concepts and principles were heralded as a pathway to higher understanding. Deemed as the “gateway to the Gods,” mathematics was regarded as a spiritual study, with individual numbers taking on special and unique meanings. Likewise, every object in existence gives off frequencies and vibrations, which are further tied in with all living matter. Lying at the root of these frequencies are numerical values. These numerical values, when interpreted by skilled individuals, take on a higher meaning and can aid individuals in interpreting what their future may hold for them. Applying these numbers and their individualized meanings, astrologers and mathematicians alike, began to work together to decipher a higher meaning behind numbers. Thus began the study of numerology.
In Numerology, numbers one, through nine are given special meanings, in regards to what they may represent for the individual who is receiving a numerology reading. These meanings are built upon as additional digits may equal the sequence. Double digit sequences are commonly referred to as “master numbers,” and may have specialized interpretations. In some systems of numerology, numbers may also be assigned a group of letters, which may further lead to various interpretations. Calculations of these numbers are usually done in single digits or double, depending on the mode of calculation. There are various methods of calculation and interpretation, all of which are rooted in ancient science and theology.
These sequences all form various meanings, unique to the particular situation of the individual receiving a numerology reading. Within numerology readings, the numerologist is able to interpret the meanings for the individual and can decipher predictions which lay within the numbers. Numerology readings can be helpful for those who are looking for guidance in difficult situations, as well as for those individuals who are simply curious as to what the future may hold for them.
Numerology has been a long-held tradition in many cultures, and has gained many believers throughout the world. When one is to ask “what is numerology,” the answer which lies beneath the question is rooted in complex calculations, yet surprisingly simple and accurate interpretations. The field of Numerology is vast, complex, and has been widely celebrated throughout the ages.
