10 Fascinating Facts To Know if You're Just Getting Into Numerology

Numbers flying through space.
Numerology is the belief that numbers have special vibrational energy that can provide insight into destiny.

Numbers 0-9 all have their own vibration, and when they are added together, patterns are revealed. This sacred science has been used for thousands of years, dating back to the great Greek philosopher Pythagoras in the time of 500 BC. Numerology can provide insight into all types of things: personality, romance, career path, and future events. 

Here are 10 things to understand about numerology to bolster your intuitive knowledge and find personal alignment.

1. Numerology is a tool for success.

Some of the greatest minds have used the tools of philosophy, along with many popular celebrities today. By uncovering your personal numerological code, you can discover your strengths to achieve success while actively avoiding the obstacles that might otherwise block your path. Unlike astrology, which often requires years of study to master, numerology is quickly accessible and immensely applicable. The practical aspect of working with numbers makes it very grounding in the material world, and therefore it can rapidly transform your future. 

2. Your name has a numerological signature.

Every letter of the alphabet corresponds to a number vibration. By calculating the numerology of your name, you’ll reveal the hidden purpose in life. This is your soul intention that is always guiding you to your greatest potential. You can also use the numerological calculations of names when creating a business title or choosing a name for a child or pet. This method will assist you in determining if you’d be better off going by a different name, perhaps even changing it legally to shift the energy of how your purpose expresses itself. 

3. Numerology guides your life cycle.

Every year has its own numerological energy, and knowing the energy of the year is immensely beneficial when making plans. Your life also goes in cycles of personal years 1 through 9. Every year has its own lessons to teach you. For example, 1 is a year of new beginnings, while 9 is a year of surrender and releasing. By understanding your personal year and the numerology of the current year, you can actively participate in the manifestations by aligning with the flow of energy, rather than experiencing frustration if your goals are out of sync with the present energy. This life-changing knowledge is something you can use to make out cycles in life and apply to long-term planning.

4. Numerology can reveal secret connections.

If you’ve ever felt a natural link to another person, place, or event in history, then it may be because you have a secret numerology link where you are vibrating on the same energy frequency. Using the same calculations of discovering your name’s numerology signature, you can decode the numerology of other things as well, such as your next vacation spot. This cipher has been claimed to reveal hidden connections in the Bible that reveal connections otherwise invisible to the untrained eye. You may use this secret wisdom to skillfully align people, places, and events to create the outcome you are hoping to achieve.

5. Numerology can be beneficial to your relationships.

Numerology is a wonderful tool for improving your relationships. By understanding the energy of your life path, soul’s intention, personality traits, and life cycle, you’ll be better able to express yourself in relationships. Likewise, you can also discover these aspects of a partner’s life to be more understanding of how you both impact each other and can work together as a team. This can be insight as to why you are so compatible (or not) and give you the skills to discuss your relationship in a new way. Additionally, by adding together the life path of two people, you get a relationship number. The relationship number reveals the purpose of your relationship and the energy created by the two of you being together. 

6. Numerology can help you find the perfect home.

The numbers, and letters if applicable, create the numerological signature of your home. Some numbers are better suited for a harmonious domestic life (2, 4, 6), while others are wonderful for self-expression (3) or a fun, fast-paced life (5). If you are seeking business or financial success then a number 8 home is best for you, while a number 7 home would be better suited for a quiet life of contemplation and research. Decoding the numerology of your address can give you insight into the energy of your home, along with revealing how you can shift the energy to make it more aligned with what you need at that time. Next time you are searching for a new home or retail spot, you can now consider the energy of the address when making a decision about if it’s right for you.

7. There are master numbers that indicate special powers.

Repeating numbers indicate intensified energy of manifestation, power, and purpose. Perhaps you’ve seen 11:11 before and made a wish; this is because without even realizing it, you were aware of the power of repeating numbers. In numerology 11, 22, and 33 are called master numbers. Those who have these in their numerological signature have a very unique destiny to fulfill, and they will experience obstacles until they learn to master the energy of the number. Even if someone does not have a master number in their signature, they will encounter the energy of master numbers during their personal numerological life cycle, and those years will be quite extraordinary with vast potential for growth when the energy is channeled properly.

8. Numerology can provide you with a sense of purpose.

It can be challenging to figure out what it is you’re here to do. Numerology is a sure way to discover new aspects of who you are and what you are intended to do with your unique numerological energy signature. By exploring the numerology of your life path, you’ll receive insight into personal motivations, strengths, weaknesses, and emotional reactions to situations. Think of it as your life’s road map. Knowing this about yourself creates genuine transformation and the opportunity to expand your conception of self to include new possibilities.

9. You can control your destiny by embracing numerology.

Life will always be unpredictable, but understanding the numerological energy in play gives you the advantage of knowing how to best make your way through any situation. There are positive and negative aspects to all the numbers, and knowing this allows you to change your perspective. If you’re enmeshed in the negative side of things, you can reflect on what the positive expression of the numerology would be and change any circumstance, event, or situation to be in your favor. This isn’t done by actively asserting your will, but rather more awareness that you can align with the energy to use it constructively with wisdom that provides a new perspective. In this way, you became an agent of your own destiny.

10. There are many different numerology calculations and a professional can help.

When exploring numerology, especially if math isn’t your strong suit, it is very helpful to go to a professional to assist you. There are different calculations to be done based on what information you’re looking to gain. For instance, calculating your life path is very different from calculating the numerological signature of your name. A numerologist can share the insights they've gained through years of practice and help to translate the intuitive meaning of the numbers to practical application in your life. A great resource is this list of the best online psychic reading services.


Hopefully, this list has given you a new perspective on the many benefits of decoding your numerological signature. This discovery is bound to be immensely impactful. As you learn to integrate the sacred vibrations of your numbers, you will soon be the composer in your symphony of life, who effortlessly blends together the melody to manifest something incredible.
