In this article, we will be touching on the topic of Numerology Number Meanings. Before we begin, I would like to share the following that is translated from a Chinese saying:
“One who knows his own strength and that of the enemy is invincible in battle.”
How well do you know yourself? And how well do you know the people around you, be it friend or foe (though hopefully, you have none)?
Many of you may be able to describe who you are to a large extent. But there will be others who probably couldn’t put it down in words. This is, after all, a feeling about yourself. And feelings are not something that one can easily put down in words.
Or you would certainly have come across a conversation with your manager or during an interview asking you to describe yourself, what are your strengths and weaknesses, and explain why? Do you find this easy to articulate?
You may go well-prepared beforehand to tackle such questions, but is this really an accurate depiction of you? There will be people who find such questions difficult to answer.
And how much do you know the people around you? How much will they reveal their true self to you?
What if there is a way for you to overcome all these, a methodology that can give you an accurate revelation of who you are and of others?
One answer to this is through, Numerology.
What is Numerology?
Numerology is a science-based approach to understand the universe around us, through studying the hidden meaning of the numbers. It is not fortune-telling if you may wonder.
The numbers that we inherit from birth or acquired throughout our lives will have meanings where each number carries certain energies or vibrations that are positive or negative. It will therefore shape and defines us.
Numbers naturally leads us to maths. And maths is the universal language. Wherever you go, regardless of where you are in the world, the formulas will mean the same thing even when it is explained by a different language.
Numerology is, therefore, all-inclusive and can be applied to anyone.
Origin of Numerology
The roots of Numerology will mostly be traced to one of the most famous advocates of numbers, Pythagoras. In modern-day times, the most commonly practiced Numerology method is the Pythagorean Numerology.
The exact dates of his life cannot be determined. In Wikipedia, it estimates that he lives between 570 B.C – 495 B.C. From the book, “The Secret Science of Numerology” by Shirley Blackwell Lawrence, it is written that he lived between 582 B.C. – 507 B.C.
In either case, he probably lived for around 75 years.
Numerology aside, you will have heard about Pythagoras in school, because he is the one who established the familiar Pythagoras Theorem of a2 + b2 = c2.
Pythagoras also emphasised on music and astronomy in his teachings as these have numbers in the underlying foundation.
However, the Pythagorean Numerology method is not the only Numerology method nor the earliest one. It is mainly popular because it is the easiest to apply and sufficiently accurate to perform character analysis.
Other Numerology methods or systems would include the Chaldean Numerology, Kabbalah Numerology, and I Ching Numerology.
In the next section, we will be looking at the Numerology Number Meanings in the Pythagorean Numerology method perspective.

Which Character Root Number are you? Do you know how to calculate your own Character Root Number?
Knowing your Character Root Number will then lead you to understand what are your main characteristics in a positive or negative perspective.
Once you have mastered how to perform your own Pythagorean Numerology calculation, you may wonder what do the other numbers in the chart mean. How do you interpret them and draw meaning or understanding from it?
How to Interpret the Numbers?
Once you can internalise and appreciate the meaning of each Character Root Number, it will become easier for you to understand the interaction between Numbers.
For example, the 2-7 number pattern refers to the interaction between Communicator and Popularity. It, therefore, implies charisma and attraction. If you have this number pattern in your chart, you are likely to be great in communication and able to convince others. People are attracted to you either due to how you present or even your appearance which exudes a certain charm.
However, not all number patterns are straightforward in their understanding. It will certainly take some practise.
But for ease of reference, I have tried to summarise for you what different birthdates say about a person’s characteristics for those that I can document.
