What is “Numerology”?

“What is Numerology?” I get asked this question often. Many compare it to astrology, similar but very different. Numbers do not lie.

“Numerology is the study of the vibration and symbolism of numbers. It is used to determine one’s personality, strengths, weaknesses, talents, obstacles, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others. Numerology can be a penetrating tool that helps people understand themselves and loved ones better. It presents the whole picture, revealing all the diverse parts of one’s personality and how they come together to create the person they are.”

Numerology has been around for over thousands of years but it became more widely known thanks to the great mathematician, Pythagoras. The numerology number chart used in modern days was created by Pythagoras and is known as the Pythagorian chart.

Numbers are the Universal language, the earth itself is encoded in numbers. Similar to Pythagoras, The great Nikola Tesla too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace. I see numerology as a tool to understanding ourselves. Our past self, our present self and our future self. Our birth name and birthday hold a numerical vibration. Once we understand ourselves and our vibration it makes it easier to understand the world around us. All numbers hold a vibration and can help or hinder your progress depending on your individual chart. The numbers in your chart will help you understand more about yourself, your strengths, weaknesses and why you do some of the things you do. Once you start understanding yourself, it makes it so much easier to acknowledge and embrace our quirks and challenges and and understand others in our lives. It’s kind of like a little roadmap for  the soul.

Now let’s talk about the numerology chart. Just the basics.

Each person has a numerological chart and in this chart are numbers that create who you are.

Everyone has 4 core numbers in their chart. First we have your “life path” number which is derived from your birthday. All numbers get reduced to a single digit with the exclusion of life path numbers 11, 22, and 33. These numbers are known in Numerology as “Master Numbers” because they carry more strength but also because they are a little more difficult to master in this life.


Then we have your “Soul”, “Personality”, and “Destiny” number. These numbers are calculated by adding the letters in your name at birth using the chart shown below.


Life Path Number: Your Life path number is derived from your birth date, and it is the most important number in your numerological chart. It describes your traits and who you are at birth, and it outlines the career opportunities, life challenges, and lessons you will encounter in this lifetime. I always say that when you follow your life path it will lead you to your destiny. So this number is key to getting there.

Soul Number: Your soul number is derived from adding all the vowels in your birth name. This number tells you what motivates you down deep into your soul. What really fulfills your heart and makes you happy. This is the number that reveals to you what drives you from a soul level.

Personality Number: The personality number is derived by adding all the consonants in your birth name. This number represents how we appear to others. Our habits, quirks and characteristics.

Destiny Number: Your destiny is derived by adding your soul and personality number together. This number determines the purpose, goal, and direction of your life and what challenges you may face and and what you can easily manifest. This is why you came to earth, to fulfill your destiny.

Challenge Number: I like to call this the “learning lesson” number instead of the “challenge” Number. This number represents the lessons we must learn, overcome or embarce in order to fulfill our destiny. These numbers tend to usually be challenging if you are living on the negative side of life.

Each chart is unique and what makes you, you. Now when we understand ourselves, we can better understand that not everyone is on the same mission here on earth as you and we can learn to embrace the differences. I like to say that we are in the school of earth, some are in kindergarten, some are in high school, some are taking calculus while others are taking math and some are taking art while others are in sports. Everyone’s journey is different. We are all unique and when we embrace our individuality we can begin to embrace and appreciate everyone’s journey.

The answers we seek are all encoded within us and I am here to help you tap into your soul.

Thank you for stopping by! Numerology has been a passion of mine for almost half my life and I’m excited to finally get to share my knowledge and insight with you. I’m hoping that in pursuing my passion for numerology I can help those in need of a little direction in their life. Because lord knows I’ve been there and understanding how to get out of the dark is the first step to living your dreams and fulfilling your destiny. Thanks for reading!

Love and light to you all!
