Numerology Calculation Methods


The Mathematics of Pythagorean numerology


Some differences exist among numerologists and their systems of numerology calculations.

No worries; numerology's math is exceedingly simple - nothing more than a little adding and subtracting.

We have done our best to maintain absolute integrity to the Pythagorean system based on extensive research covering more than three decades. If you have encountered some of those differences in your own research, consider this: All calculations in numerology are based on an underlying logic that is easy to recognize yet largely unknown even among many professional numerologists.

Although the numerology calculation methods are very simple — a matter of adding or subtracting single- and double-digit numbers — numerology is based on a rather complex cosmic network of inter-connecting patterns and cycles. These patterns and cycles are recognizable. It is in recognizing these patterns, that we are able to predict events and influences when certain criteria are met.

NOTE: When we talk about "reducing a number to a single-digit," we mean adding each of the digits until a single-digit is left. For example, we reduce the number 367 by adding 3 + 6 + 7 = 16. Next, we add 1 + 6 = 7. We have now reduced the number 367 to the single-digit number 7.

 All calculations in numerology are based on an underlying logic that is easy to recognize yet largely unknown even among many professional numerologists.



NOTE: In many areas of your chart, Master numbers are not reduced during the calculations. For example, to reduce the year 1966 to a single digit, we add 1+9+6+6=22. Twenty-two is a Master number, therefore, we do not reduce 22 any further.
Many numerologists will write 22/4, because the 22 is also a 4. This is purely a matter of personal preference.

Another example: November 22, 1911. November is the 11th month. The 11 is a Master number and is not reduced. (There are three Master Numbers: 11, 22, and 33)
The 22nd day is also a Master number: 22.
The year 1911 reduces to 12, which reduces to 3.
month = 11, day = 22, year = 3: Total = 36. We reduce 36 to 9. The Life Path is 9.

While there are two alternative ways to calculate the Life Path, most numerologists, including myself, consider those methods flawed, because they are not based on the Period Cycles, thereby ignoring the logic on which this science is based.
