What is Numerology; with numerologist Hans Decoz

The 7, for instance, can be based on 16, 25, 34, 43, 52, 61, 70, 79, 88, and 97. Although they all reduce to 7, each changes the personality of the 7 to some extent. In some cases, the changes are quite dramatic, such as when the double-digit number is a Master number or a Karmic Debt number.

When a single-digit number is based on a double-digit number, it’s a good habit to include it in the chart.

If a 7 is based on 25, write 25/7, if it’s based on 34 write 34/7.

A double-digit number's characteristics are dominated by that of the single-digit to which it reduces. The double-digit number highlights certain aspects and diminishes others, but it never eliminates any aspect completely.

For example, a 7 based on 25 is not as withdrawn as a 7 based on a 16, while a 7 based on 34 is more creative than other 7s.

The already considerable leadership ability of a 1 is enhanced in the 10. As a rule, numbers that are dividable by 10 strengthen the characteristics of the single-digit number across the board.; 10 is a high octave 1; 40 is a high octave 4; 70 is a high octave 7.

Below is a short description of double-digit numbers 10 through 99.


There are four Karmic Debt numbers: 13, 14, 16, and 19.

There are three Master numbers: 11, 22, and 33.

There are six Power numbers; numbers with identical digits: 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99.

From Numerology Questions - a Dear Hans column:

Ikshan wants to know how to learn the numerology meaning of multi-digit numbers - three or even more digits.

Ikshan from Indonesia asks: How about the interpretation for numbers higher than 99? Like 104 and 124.

Thank you.

Hi Ikshan,

Multi-digit numbers generally are reduced to single-digit numbers, unless they add to a Master number. (There are three Master numbers, 11, 22, and 33. You can learn more about Master numbers here…) They are interpreted based on their single-digit value.

However, sometimes we want to take a closer look at a multi-digit number, for example when we wish to analyze a calendar year in order to forecast its influence. I recently wrote a forecast for 2019 and in order to get a detailed, in-depth look, I analyze the whole number, but even then, the dominating influence is the single-digit to which it is reduced.

Here is how a multi-digit number should be analyzed:
