3 Main types of Numerology
You may think that Numerology is Numerology. Not so. There are some major differences between different types of Numerology. When I went for my first reading I honestly had no clue. Only when I started my studies did I realise I was studying Pythagorean Numerology. I always jump in at the deep end without knowing what I am actually studying. I go with my gut and intuition. That is me.
Today I decided to give a simple explanation to the best of my understanding as to the different types.
This is the most commonly used form in Western societies. It uses your full birth date and full names. It uses all the numbers from 1 to 9. Master numbers 11 and 22 are not reduced to a 2 and 4 respectively. Numbers are assigned to alphabet letters in sequence. Pythagoras is the founder of this although he studied under Indian gurus and Jewish mystics. He lived 590 years before Christ. His teachings were adopted by Socrates and Plato and studied by early Christian scholars, including St. Augustine.
This is probably the oldest system and originated in Babylonia. It is an extremely difficult system to master. It analyzes only the name you are known by (not your full name) and uses the day on which you were born (1-31). It does not use the number 9 unless a name adds up to that, but only assigns letters 1-8 to alphabet letters. They are not assigned alphabetically as in the Pythagorean form. They have a different system which I have not studied. Chaldean Numerology is more spiritual, metaphysical or occult and is known as “Mystical” Numerology.
This comes from Hebrew Mysticism and I know absolutely nothing about it. Apparently it uses only your name and 22 alphabet letters. Thus it is not suited for Western use. The word “Kabbalah” means “knowledge that comes through the mind and the soul rather than flesh and blood”. Unlike any other language Hebrew has a number to correspond with every alphabet letter and is a theological language. Theology is the study of the nature of God and religious truth.
There are 2 other forms worth a casual mention. The Abracadabra Numerology which uses pyramids (never come across it) and the New Kabbalah which was developed to accomodate the changes in the Roman alphabet. I suppose as it had only 22 letters.
Hope this gives you a better picture. See you soon for another chat.
