An Introduction to Numerology
Know the basics of numerology, the science of knowing good & bad effects of numbers on your life. Numerologists can analyze the characteristics of a person just by studying the date of birth and name.
What is Numerology?
Numerology is the easiest way to judge or read a person, just by knowing the full date of birth and the name of that person.
Numerology is very useful for self analysis.
Numerology has an ancient history and it was practiced in ancient China, Europe and India. Pythagoras was one of the most famous numerologists in the ancient world. He is considered as the father of Modern numerology.
Now numerology is being practiced world over.
The Numbers in Numerology
There are different types of numbers in numerology. The most important numbers are Birth Number, Life Path Number and Name Number. These numbers are used for basic reading of a person, so are known as basic numbers, or core number. Moreover, there are few other supportive numbers, which include Month Number and Year Number.
The Birth Number
The Birth Number, which has many other names like Root Number, Mind Number etc., is a person's date of birth reduced to single digit number by adding the numbers within the date. If the date of birth is already in single digit, it is the Birth Number. For example, if your date of birth is 1, then your birth number is 1. But if your date of birth is 10, then also your Birth Number is 1, 10= 1+0=1.
In numerology, each Birth Number has its own characteristics. By knowing the Birth Number of a person, we can know his/her positive and negative characteristics.
The Life Path Number
The Life Path Number is derived from adding all the numbers in the full date of birth and reducing it to a single digit number. For example, suppose your date of birth is 15.12.1984. Now, by adding all the numbers in the date, we get the total of 31. (1+5+1+2+1+9+8+4 = 31). Now again we have to add the numbers in 31 to reduce it to a single digit number. 3+1=4. So 4 is your Life Path Number.
Life Path Number is also known as Destiny Number, Soul Number and Fortune Number.
Like the Birth Number, each Life Path Number has its own characteristics. By knowing one's Life Path Number, we can know the way the person will live. The characteristics of the same Birth Number and Life Path Number are not necessarily the same.

The Name Number or Destiny Number
Like Birth Number and Life Path Number, the Name Number is also very important in numerology. The name number is calculated by adding the number value of each letter in the full name and then reducing it to a single digit number. Every name number has some special positive and negative characteristics.
If the name number is not harmonious to your Birth or Life Path Number, the numerologists suggest you to change the spelling of the name to get a better name number.
In Indian numerology, the first letter of the name is most important to read a person.
The name of a person has deep influence on the life of that person.
Soul Urge Number or Heart's Desire Number
Soul urge number, which is also known as Heart's Desire Number is the single digit value of the vowels in the full name of the person. This is one of the 5 core numbers in numerology. This number shows inner you, your inner desires.
This number is derived from the consonants in a person's full name. This number shows the person's personality, as it is seen by others.

Numerology is Not Astrology
We should know that numerology is better for reading a person, to know what are his positive or negative traits, what type of mindset he has etc. This reading is done entirely with the help of the numbers derived from the person's birth of date and name. Numerology has nothing to do with planets and their situations, Zodiac Signs etc., because it is just about numbers.
To guide a person through numerology, the numerologists suggest Behavior Change, Precautions, Use of Lucky Numbers, Lucky Days and Lucky Colors. Few numerologists suggest signature change. But if an astrologer is practicing numerology, it is seen that he suggests gems and rituals.
