What is Numerology?
Numerology is the study of numbers as meaningful constructs related to human consciousness. Numbers occupy our lives in many ways, starting with number values associated with the letters of words, especially our names.
We have the numbers of our birth day, month, and year. Most countries have a number sequence for citizens (in the United States, it is the 9-digit Social Security Number or SSN). Most of us have a phone number; if we drive a car, we have a number plate. Each word and sequence of numbers reduces to a number between 1 and 9, and each of those numbers has spiritual meaning.
The Destiny (expression) Number is the single, reduced digit of your full, given birth name, as it would be recorded on a birth certificate or official public document.
How to Calculate your Destiny Number?
Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean.
Pythagorean calculation method
Gematria calculation method
Chaldean calculation method
While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.
Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:
|8||3||9||5||3||7||= 35||= 8|
|4||6||5||1||3||2||= 21||= 3|
|1||6||1||5||3||1||= 17||= 8|
As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.
Regardless of the system used to calculate the Destiny Number, below you are the explanations for each Destiny Number, 1 to 9, and master numbers 11, 22, 33, 44, and 55.
