refers to any of several systems, traditions or beliefs in a mystical
or esoteric relationship between numbers and the character or
action of physical objects and living things. Numerology and numerological
divination were popular among early mathematicians such as Pythagoras,
but are no longer considered part of mathematics, and are now
regarded as pseudomathematics by most scientists. This is similar
to the historical development of astronomy out of astrology, and
chemistry from alchemy. Today numerology is associated with the
occult, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.
Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which
they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an
integral part of the cosmic plan. Each letter has a numeric value
that provides a related cosmic vibration. The sum of the numbers
in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters
in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. These numbers
show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates,
and where talents may lie. Experts in numerology use the numbers
to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life.
Numerology is used to decide when to invest, when to marry, when
to travel, when to change jobs, or relocate.
