What is numerology?


As per Oxford dictionary, Numerology is the branch of knowledge that deals with the occult significance of numbers.


In numerology, Astrologer relates each number and alphabetical characters to a particular number and believes that the particular number has some sort of cosmic vibration. As per Hindu astrology, Astrologer builds a relation between numbers and alphabetical characters to a particular Number from 1 to 9 and each number from 1 to 9 is represented by Planets. For example Number 1 represented by Planet Sun, Number 2 represented by Planet Moon etc. These planets (1-9 numbers) are influencing individual’s characteristics.


Chaldean and Pythagorean System


No one exactly knows the origin of Numerology and when it started. The Pythagorean and Chaldean schools of numbers are the most commonly used. The Pythagorean system is more popular especially in West but Chaldean Numerology is older. In this website, Chaldean Numerology has been used to determine Alphabetical numbers.


Pythagoras was a master mathematician born in Greece in the 6th century B.C; we all are familiar with his geometry theorems. However, He is also considered as a Father of Modern Numerology. He spent many years of study in Egypt and other parts of the world and explore the ancient science of numbers. After that, he brought his knowledge and experience to Greece and taught nearly forty years and established a college and philosophy of numbers.


There was a time when Astrology, Numerology and other occult studies were considered a religion not in the way we would know it today. Around 356 B.C; In the time of Alexander the Great, the Chaldeans believed that their knowledge of Numerology and Astrology went back at least 473,000 years. The Chaldean system of numbers is still in use today. The Chaldean system of numbers is also known as Mystic Numerology.
