I was always better at arts subjects than maths when I was at school, which is probably one of the reasons I'd never tried numerology before. However, the only numeracy skill you need in numerology is being able to add up - and you can even use a calculator for that if you want to.
Essentially, what you do with any group of numbers, such as your date of birth or your house number or the numeric value of the letters in your name, is add all the digits together and continue doing this until you get a single number. So, 3421 would be 3+4+2+1=10. Then 1+0=1. You then look up what that number means. Number 1 is about individuality, innovation and independence, by the way.
Hay House Basics Numerology states: "Numerology is the study of the relationships that numbers and letters have with our personality and life events... Numerology is so much more than predicting the future..."
As the publisher, Hay House, explains on its website, the book tells you how to work out your numbers and read a chart. It also explores the many ways numerology can help you, including:
- Your seven personality numbers - including your life path, destiny, soul and birth day numbers - and what they all mean
- Working with your karmic lesson numbers for growth and self-development
- Using your forecasting numbers to look at the year ahead and the energies it holds for you
- How to interpret other numbers you encounter in daily life
With a new year approaching, this is a very good time to start learning to use numerology to work out not only what 2016 has in store, but also how to make the most out of it.
