Numbers have a significant bearing on events, perceived and real. The relational study between numbers and the coinciding events, studied assiduously over a period of time is Numerology.
Though usually, it is purported to fall under the divine, mystical, surreal or spiritual realm, many belief systems ascribe derivations of Numerology, such as isopsephy to mathematicians, such as Pythagoras. Think about it, on the surface, how can numbers can be anything but objective?
Tid-Bit: Numerology – the first literal instance of the word was recorded only in 1907.
The idea that one can decipher or divine much about his or her life through a thorough analyses of numerical patterns is the fundamental principle embraced by both, believers and practitioners.
Some go so far as to say that one’s entire life- – past, present and future- can be structured accurately by examining a few basic numbers unique to the individual!
Some Historical References to Numerology can be found in the following ancient cultures:
- The Vedas (India)
- Greece, 6th century B.C. (Pythagoras)
To understand the modern take on this ancient discipline, I recommend Ruth A. Drayer’s book, Numerology, The Power in Numbers (Square One Publishers) and. Dr. Jordan’s work “The Romance in Your Name” which speaks of a system for identifying key numerological influences in one’s name and birth date and remains a seminal interpretive guide for practitioners today.
There are many equally foundational works published on the subject in various local languages in India – it is my attempt to bring to the readers of this blog, a sound translation of each, by and by.
For the purpose of divination, most numerologists use numbers 1 through 9 only. So for example,
(1) Stands for the individual will, Leadership, entrepreneurship,
(2) Harmony, Balance and Receptive Partnership
(3) Community Interaction, Group Work
(4) Industry, Creation
(5) Doing; Experiencing
(6) Responsibility, Equilibrium, Yin-Yang
(7)Thought & Spirit
(8)The Strength of Sacrifice
Due to the prominence gained by numbers and numerology in popular fiction, folks are turning to numerology as readily as they are to astrology. This site will bring to you reviews, popular views, investigative articles and most of all syndicated content available on the twin disciplines of Numerology and Vedic Astrology so you can decide for whether this is just a pseudoscience that rests feeble on scientific authority or if it is indeed a discursive subject that birthed – and continues to birth many logical thought (and belief!) systems the world over!
