A Brief Introduction to Numerology

To find your name and birth number(s), first, see if you can find a studious fourth-grader to do the Math for you. That seems to really help.

To find your birth number, simply add the numbers from date of your birth together, reducing until you reach a single digit number. You will have a number between 1-9.

To find your name number, write the alphabet on a piece of paper under the numbers 1-9. Then add the numbers together as you did for your birth number. You will get your name number, which represents your personality. Now, if you use different versions of your name, nicknames or signatures, you might want to see which of these numbers seems to best complement what you’re trying to accomplish. If none of these appeal to you, keep on fiddling with your name until your number suits you.

1-is the universal number. If you are a one, you are used to telling everybody else where to get off. You are a leader, and will lop off heads to keep it that way. Your leadership abilities mean you feel like you are in charge and should have the lastword and you are inordinately responsible. The flip side of that is that you are stubborn, you can be overweening, and you do not tolerate fools gladly. This means that others may try to wrest power from you.

2-as a two, you are constantly trying to create balance, are easily able to reach compromise, and able to see the other person’s side. If you decide to be a judge, jurors will grow old by the time you have made up your mind. Try to find a calling that requires a less than decisive nature.

3-is representative of completion and unity. You are content with things as they are and are reluctant to rock the boat. You like to order the same food at the same restaurant, to reorder the same clothes, and are very loyal.

4-as a four, you are the ultimate traditionalist and will fiercely protect yourself, your family, and your way of life. This means that you like to get into it with people and always have a good reason for blowing your top.

5- five is the adventurer, always casting a line for the next new thing. As inconstant as you are, you are also an interpreter, a start-up wizard, an inventor, and a forger of new and different ways to do everything.

6- As a six, you focus on bringing peace and healing to the world and those around you. You are warm, compassionate, creative, and able to create comfort in everything you undertake.

7-number seven can challenge purely for the sake of creating a new order. You are a shrewd and methodical person who will go to any length to succeed.

8-number 8s seek a greater truth and are drawn to spiritual paths. A number 8 is a gifted politician and will challenge you on philosophical and moral grounds. That does seem like an oxymoron, though.

9-nines are entrenched organizing things and people. If you are a nine, you are the go-to-it person for anyone suffering from chaos!

September is the 9th month and it will bring ch-ch-ch-changes! Be prepared!
