  • Pythagorean Numerology
  • Chaldean Numerology
    • It originates from Babylon by the Chaldeans around 605 – 562 B.C.
    • Older than Pythagorean Numerology and uses both name and birth dates. However, it uses the name that the individual is currently using and not the full legal name. 
    • It can be more accurate than the Pythagorean Numerology system but less popular as it is harder to master.
  • Kabbalah Numerology
    • Originates from the Hebrews using the Hebrew alphabets
    • Uses only the name
  • New Kabbalah Numerology
