21st-Century "Numerology Lite"

Numerology is everywhere online! Numerologists are replacing psychics as the most popular online fortunetellers. Diana-Numerologist and NumerologySecret.com are only two of the newer online numerology vendors, and discredited "psychic" vendors such as "Norah" at PremiumAstrology.com, and Gabriella-Psychic are recasting themselves as numerologists.

What is numerology, and how does it work? Numerology is belief in the symbolism of numbers. Modern numerology works with 11 numbers: 1 through 9, 11, and 22. By assigning a number to each letter of your name, your birth name can be added up and then reduced to one number that reflects your personality traits. Your birth date can also be summed and reduced to one number. That is your "Life Path" or "Destiny" number and it has a standardized meaning you share with everyone who has the same number. In this simplified system, your numbers never change.

Modern numerology doesn't claim to know the future. It addresses the questions "Who am I?" and "What is my destiny?" Like Sun-Sign astrology, online numerology can be fun to play with. But don't take it seriously. And there is so much free numerology on the Net that you shouldn't ever be tempted to pay for an online reading.

For centuries, religious people and mystics have studied numbers, usually seeking patterns in Creation or patterns in events, as with the Chinese I Ching or Jewish Kabbalah. But ancient numerology was nothing like our modern online numerology.

  • The word "numerology" first appears in 1907.
  • The numerology we use today to read personalities and life paths is based on a cluster of books popular in the 1960s and '70s, among them Numerology: The Romance of Your Name (1965) by Juno Jordan, and Helping Yourself with Numerology (1972) by Helyn Hitchcock. Our culture's version of numerology is really "numerology lite."

Why You Should Never Pay for Online Numerology

  • You can calculate your own numbers using a simple chart, or go online and have your number calculated and interpreted instantly by computer, for free. Because it's all computerized "numerology lite," the free is as good as what you pay for.
  • The modern form of numerology is too new to provide you with specific details or ancient wisdom.
  • Although based on your personal information, instant interpretations are done by computer, and they are simplified and standardized. If your Destiny Number is 9, your reading is the same as every other 9's. If the reading says you are special and rare, suspect a scam.
  • Don't pay any numerologists who advertise or contact you out of the blue, like Diana Numerologist. They are computerized businesses hunting for suckers. For example, although they claim to be separate vendors employing different Master Numerologists, HoroscopeAuthority.com's numerology report is identical to the one from LifeAnswers.com. No real numerologists are involved. Both sites are "bots" recycling material that's been on the Internet since at least 2007, and they aren't the only ones. The source of this material is unknown.
  • Numerologysecret.com wanted $67 for a "full set" of readings delivered instantly that would "change my life" and find me a perfect partner. Only a fool would take a computer's advice about life.
  • Numerology done by a person is an art. Instant numerology done by computer is always a game. Play but never pay.

    Got your free reading from "Eric McCallum" at NumerologySecret, didn't you? "Eric," who is an email robot, told me the same. There is no such thing as a "temporal convergence" in numerology or astrology. It is all B.S. Here's my review of Numerologysecret.com. http://hub.me/aeN5P

    I have been told I have a temporal convergence coming soon but need to pay to find out when so I don' t miss it. Can I find out without paying?

    I have never checked out online psychics or numerologists, but thanks for all this important information. It is very helpful and I would definitely be tempted to check out the free ones. Thanks
