Astro Numerology
Numbers are the "bones" upon which astrology is built. Just like the signs, each number from one
to twelve has its own unique meaning. What few make clear is that it is the Although at present, we have nine numbers plus the zero cipher, ideally there should be twelve, but we must work with what we have. The decimal and duodecimal systems reflect this. There should eventually also be a twelve-day week to accomodate the newly discovered(or rediscovered) planets. Numerology or the science of numbers, is popularly used to evaluate the power of a letter or name. The numbers 1 to 9 are strewn across and beneath them, sequentially, are placed the letters of the English alphabet(foreign alphabets will have different placings and values) as such...
...so that A,J,and K will have a value of 1, B,K, and T will have a value of 2, and so on. If we take the name John Smith the calculations will be as follows..
Eight(8) is the numerical value for John Smith. This can be done for birthdays, addresses, and phone numbers as well. The important thing is to
keep adding the numbers untill they reduce to a single digit between 1 and 9. This method of calculating may appear absurd to most untill one realizes
that, like astrology, it is as much a visual science as a mathematical one. The number 11 will mean eleven to most of us, but in numerology it means
two ones(totalling two) standing next to each other. The only double digit numbers that are not reduced are those that replicate themselves, such as
11, 22, 33, and so on. These are called Each number has its significance and associations and they can be as varied as their authors. One main rule of thumb is that the odd numbers(1,3,5,7,9) are masculine(corresponding to the masculine signs in astrology) or extroverted in nature and compatible with one another, whereas the even numbers(2,4,6,8) are feminine(corresponding to the feminine signs in astrology) and introverted in nature and are also compatible with one another. You will notice that there are more odd than even numbers; this is indicative of our patriarchal or male-dominated society. The cypher 0 was adopted from the Arab world around 800 AD who in turn may have adopted it earlier from India. Astrologically it corresponds to the planet Pluto and the principle of power. In front of a number it weakens or diminishes tenfold, and in back of a number it strengthens or enlarges tenfold. If added to the even numbers it balances the male/female principle. Just as Pluto's planetary status is being debated, so is equality for the female. In my view, Pluto is definitely a planet. back to home |
