Western Numerology: what the numbers reveal!

What is Western numerology?.


The origins of Western numerology are often related to the work of the Greek mathematician Pythagoras from Samos. A popular quote which is often attributed to Pythagoras is: “The world is built upon the power of numbers”. These words may be true in the perspective of what academic sciences (physics, math, and chemistry) are currently showing us related to understanding the patterns of our universe. However, there are no hard proves that Pythagoras would have supported the many applications of numbers by numerologists. Today there are 3 recognized systems of numerology: ‘Chaldean numerology’, ‘Kaballah numerology’ and ‘Pythagorean numerology‘ – the last system is often described as Western numerology. Western numerology is also the most used system of numerology in the world.

The basic rule in Western numerology is that there is a relationship between everything and numbers. Western numerology also claims that each letter of the alphabet has a numeric value that represents a related cosmic vibration.

For example: the sum of the numbers in your date of birth provides your ‘Life Path Number’ (or: ‘Birth Path Number’). And your full name provides your the ‘Destiny Number’, the vowels in your name: the ‘Soul Urge Number’, and the consonants: your ‘Inner Dreams’. These numbers can often provide a great deal about your character, life purpose, motivation, talent etc.
