# Numerology Calculation – The Pythagorean Method

Do you want to know how you can perform numerology calculation via the Pythagorean method on your own and discover more about yourself? Or how about understanding the personality of your loved ones, your clients, and your colleagues?

Imagine the ability to decipher the characteristics of yourself or others in a matter of minutes. Would this be a practical skillset to acquire for yourself?

Learning how to calculate the numerology chart for yourself and others is the first step.

In this post, I will be walking through with you step by step how you may do so.

It is simple to do, and all you need is a pen/pencil and paper. You can become a master in no time! But the more difficult part, of course, is how to interpret the numbers.

## Setting Up That Inverted Triangle!

The first thing that you need to do is to draw an inverted triangle and a few dividing lines in between, as shown below.

This inverted triangle is where you will eventually put in your date of birth and calculate your numbers representing your inner and outer character.

## Pythagorean Numerology Calculation

To calculate your Pythagorean Numerology chart numbers, write down your date of birth, as shown below. Let’s use the date of birth 16th September 1923 in the example, and you can input yours and calculate too as we go along.

As shown above, sum the:

Day: 1 + 6 = 7
Month: 0 + 9 = 9
Year: 1 + 9 = 10; 1 + 0 = 1
Year: 2 + 3 = 5

The next step is to reduce the number to single digits further until you get into your Character Root Number, as shown below.

The calculation is as follows:

2nd line left side: 7 + 9 = 16; 1 + 6 = 7
2nd line right side: 1 + 5 = 6
3rd line (Character Root Number): 7 + 6 = 13; 1 + 3 = 4

With the above, you now have your numbers representing your inner character.

We can now move on to calculate the numbers for your outer character. Refer to the diagram shown below.

By the coloured lines, below shows the formula:

Orange (Left): 9 + 7 = 16; 1 + 6 = 7
Blue (Left): 7 + 7 = 14; 1 + 4 = 5
Total: 7 + 5 = 12; 1 + 2 = 3

Orange (Right): 1 + 6 = 7
Blue (Right) = 5 + 6 = 11; 1 + 1 = 2
Total: 7 + 2 = 9

Green: 6 + 4 = 10; 1 + 0 = 1
Red: 7 + 4 = 11; 1 + 1 = 2
Purple: 1 + 2 = 3

Congratulations! You now know how to calculate your Pythagorean Numerology numbers!

## Inner Character

Having learned how to calculate your Pythagorean Numerology chart numbers, let us take a look at the numbers revealing your inner character. These are the numbers within the inverted triangle. Using the example earlier for illustration, the numbers are:

There are multiple ways/combinations to read the numbers that can draw insights into your inner character.

The most common one is your Character Root Number. In this example, the Character Root Number is 4.

Number 4 represents the Mastermind, where he has strong planning skills, intelligent, well-educated, and admires beauty.

On the negative side, however, there can be a tendency that he may be an over perfectionist that may cause him to lose his direction.

You will also notice the 7-6-4 combination in the middle of the inner triangle. It describes that he has a keen observation, is trustworthy, gains support from the people, and has good management and negotiation skills.

The 7-9 number combination on the top left of the inner triangle supports the above characteristics, where it suggests that he has many supporters to assist him in his career.

The 1-5 number combination on the top right of the inner triangle shows that he is a confident person, where he has clarity in his direction and certainty on what he wants to achieve.

He is disciplined and demands a lot on himself. But he may be seen as self-centered where he holds on to his principles closely. He wants things his way, which may not be necessarily wrong.

There is much more that we can examine from these numbers. But I think it is sufficient to say that a person with such numbers generally has a good life and is in great control of his life.

## Outer Character

We will now move on to study the meaning of the numbers in the outer character. These are the numbers outside of the inverted triangle, and we can use them to understand how we interact with people or approach situations and how people see us.

And the characteristics between the inner and outer triangle can be different. You can correlate that with how you see yourself versus how people see you.

The latter is often something you will not get feedback on. Hence, the outer character numbers may sometimes provide you an insight for greater self-awareness. It helps you to realise how you portray yourself to others, knowingly or unknowingly.

So if the numbers may reveal something negative, you can determine how this may be affecting you and work towards positive changes and improvement. Make sense?

So let us take a look at the examples above. You will notice there is a 1-2 number combination at the bottom of the chart. It means that the person carries authority when he speaks, but he is unaware that people may be badmouthing him behind his back.

So perhaps if he feels that too in reality and sees this as a problem, then that is something he may want to consider working on to change the situation consciously.

Perhaps he can learn to tone down the way he speaks, for example. But on the other hand, he can choose to ignore it if he thinks it doesn’t matter. And this can be perfectly valid anyway because there can be other factors negating this.

Nevertheless, the 1-2-3 number pattern on the bottom of this numerology chart reveals a special wealth pattern. You can find out more in my other article, Special Numbers in Numerology – Wealth Pattern.

## Character Root Numbers

The Character Root Number defines your core characteristic. It gives an overview of what kind of person you generally are.

But as you have seen above, there is more to analyze about a person’s character by looking at the other numbers in the numerology chart.

Nevertheless, the Character Root Number is the core number.

There are in 9 Character Root Numbers in total, which I will give a quick general positive and negative energy outline below to provide you a flavour of what they mean.

• Hi Nelson, the Pythagorean Numerology system is one of the easiest to learn and delivers good accuracy. So the knowledge can be quite easily acquired by anyone. There is another older Numerology system called the Chaldean Numerology system, which is said to be harder to learn but can reveal more about a person’s destiny.
