an ancient esoteric science of numbers. Numerology often referred to as magic numbers, in fact, this science is much closer to astrology than to magic.

The basis of numerology is the principle that all multi-digit numbers can be reduced to a single discharge (prime numbers from number 1 to number 9), which correspond to certain occult characteristics that influence a person’s life. That is for each single-digit fixed defining properties, concepts and images. Since the letters of the alphabet can be a numeric expression through its serial number, any words or names are the same numerological operations that number.

Numerology, like astrology helps determine the nature, natural talents, strengths, weaknesses, and predict the future, discover the most suitable time for decision-making and action. With the help of numerology you can choose partners – in business or marriage.

It is difficult to say exactly when numerology was born, for the reason that in ancient times (in Babylon, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome) a separate science just was not there was another more common form – arithmomania (prediction on numbers).

Basic principles of the present version of the Western numerology was developed in the VI century BC ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who combined mathematics of the Arabs, Druids, Egyptians, Phoenicians, and the sciences of human nature. Pythagoras traveled to Egypt, Chaldea and other countries; return, he founded in southern Italy special Philosophical Society.

In this society, the Pythagorean school, studied science, especially arithmetic, geometry and astronomy, and made important discoveries. Pythagoras discovered that the four then known musical intervals can be expressed in a ratio between the numbers 1 to 4. Then he realized that the numbers 1 to 4, and they added the numbers add up to 10, form a sacred number, which represents the material and metaphysical integrity of the universe, perfection. If four notes can be expressed in numbers, Pythagoras believed, it is likely that all things can be expressed in numbers. The universe is expressed in numbers from one to four, which, when added to ten a source of all things.

Pythagorean doctrine greatly influenced the formation and development of religious secret societies of Europe, such as the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and other anthroposophists. Since then and until now, this version of numerology continues to evolve.

Of particular importance in the study received numerology Kabbalah, where its variety known as gematria. Kabbalists have expanded the concept of Pythagoras, using the numbers in magic squares for different purposes. With the opening of the XIX century scholars nature of light, electricity and magnetism, ancient occult meaning ascribed to numbers, began to ascribe and vibration energy.

Without sinking into the labyrinths and depth of Kabbalistic cosmology and esoteric doctrines, modern numerology prefers the simplified numeric and alphanumeric code based on the theories of Pythagoras. Pythagoras, his disciples and followers to cut all of the digits 1 to 9, inclusive, as they are the original numbers of which may be obtained from all the others. To reduce the large numbers of elementary developed different systems. The simplest and most popular method – add up all the digits of that number, then, if formed 10 or more, and add these numbers, this process continues until they receive elementary number from 1 to 9 (in some versions of numerological calculations double numbers 11 and 22, also known as the number of teachers are not reduced to single).

According to the number we can determine, for example, how to be the coming year and how to use it with the greatest benefit for themselves. In numerological terms, time moves in endlessly repeating cycles of 1 to 9. In the centuries and decades, each new year brings with it a new number. Days and months in the year can also be divided into cycles. These cycles is subject for all in the universe.
