Numerology is perhaps the easiest of the occult arts to understand and use. All you need is the birth date and the complete name of an individual to unlock all of the secrets that
the numbers hold.
There are eleven numbers used in constructing Numerology charts. These numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22. Larger numbers that occur from adding the numbers in the
complete birth date or from the values assigned to each name, are reduced by adding the digits together until the sum achieved is one of the core numbers. Merely add the components of the larger number
together (repeatedly, if necessary) until a single digit (or the "master" numbers 11 or 22) results. Each of these number represents different characteristics and expressions.
Master number are the
only exception to rule of reducing to the single digit. The master numbers 11 and 22 are reputedly intensified versions of the single digit number they replace (2 and 4). These numbers suggest a potential for
a high degree of learning and/or achievement very often in a more stressful environment. In most individuals, the master numbers operate at a much more tangible or practical level, becoming essentially the
same as the single digit parallel.
