History of Numerology

Origin of all ancient philosophy has a mystery to it, so does Numerology. It is considered to be one of the oldest methods of divination. Ancient Indians have been practicing this method of prediction and it is popularly known as “Ank Shastra” or “Ank Jyotish”. In ank shastra every planet is assigned a number from 1 to 9. Each plantet rules a particular zodiac sign and has a specific vibration and element. Similarly the days of the week are assigned specific numbers from 1 to 9. In ancient Indian Ank Jyotish/ Ank Shastra a person’s Moolank, Bhagyank, namank, Rashi aak is studies to predict the future.

Like Astrology, Numerology also developed in different parts of the world, the major type of numerology are:

Chaldean Numerology – based on vibrations emitted by a certain numbers. It originated in Ancient Babylonia and Chaldean was also a tribe of people who used to live in ancient Babylonia.

Kabbalah Numerology - is said to be originated from the Hebrew mystical science. It is one of the most popular forms of numerology. Each Hebrew alphabet is assigned a certain numerical value and denotes specific characteristics.

Indian Numerology or Vedic Numerology or “Ank Jyotish” - is considered to be one of the oldest forms and a small, however, essential part of Astrology. The name number, Psychic Number and Destiny Number are used to predict future.

Pythagorean Numerology - which is also called Modern numerology is named after the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. It starts with six primary numbers, derived from birth date and from name. He implied that the vibrations and energy of the numbers can be used both positively and negatively. His theories greatly contributed to spread and develop numerology.

Many other nations like Japan, Egypt, China and Rome also practiced numerology for a long time.

How does numerology work?

The science of numbers starts from 1 through 9. Therefore, it only affects single digit numbers, excluding the main numbers 11, 22, and 33. All of these numbers relate to the main rates of vibration related to the various characteristics of a person's life. So if you get a two-digit total, you need to convert it to a single digit;
Let us understand this via an example:
If your date of birth is 15-12-1998, you got to do the following:
Date — 1 + 5 = 6
Month — 1 + 2 = 3
Year — 1 + 9 + 9 + 8 = 27; further to 2 + 7 = 9
This is how the alphabet works in a person's name. Each alphabet corresponds to a number. If someone wants a numerologist to analyze their name, then the calculations are made in the same way, where A = 1; B=2; C=3 and so on. Here, too, two-digit numbers are converted into single numbers like L = 12, i.e. 1 + 2 = 3.
Numerologists receive four main primitives and approximately 20-30 modifiers when making predictions. And the study of these modifiers and elements provides a deep insight into personality and other factors of a person's life.
