If you want to learn how numerology works, you must first start with understanding what the basic principles of numerology are: first, numbers carry innate meanings; and second, these numbers’ innate meanings affect human life and all other processes in the universe. Now, once you’ve understood that, you can proceed to learn how numerological calculations are done.
Learning how to do numerological calculations starts with familiarizing yourself with the basic rules on key numbers (numbers used to interpret one’s personality and future). One of the most basic principles is that in numerology, all numbers are simplified into a single digit, except for 11, 22, and sometimes, other 2-digit multiples of 11. These two-digit numbers are considered as master vibrations and are preserved as is. They don’t have to be reduced into one-digit numbers by adding their digits, as what would otherwise be done to non-multiples of 11.
Next thing you should know is that numerological calculations are done on one’s birth date and name. Your birth date determines your life path number, which is described as the path that you choose to take to achieve your life’s goals. To get this life path number, you must add each the digits of your birth date. For example, if you were born on January 1, 1971, your calculation must be 1+1+1+9+7+1 = 20. Since 20 is a two-digit number that’s not a multiple of 11, you must reduce it again: 2+0 = 2. Your life path number is 2.
Finding your name calculations involves assigning numbers to letters of your name as follows:
1-A, J, S2-B, K, T3-C, L, U4-D, M, V5-E, N, W6-F, O, X7-G, P, Y8-H, Q, Z9-I, R
Using these number assignments, you can again add the “digits” of your name to determine their numerological sum until the number is reduced to a single digit, to 11, or to 22. The numerological sum of your full name determines your destiny number, which indicates your goals, direction, and purpose in life.
