**Numerology** – an ancient esoteric science of numbers. It is often called 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** (the prime numbers from 1 to 9), which correspond to certain occult characteristics that influence a person’s life. That is, for each single-digit fixed properties, concepts and images. Since the letters of the alphabet can be a numeric expression through its serial number, any words or names are in the same numerological operations that number.

**Numerology**, like astrology helps determine the nature, natural gifts, strengths, weaknesses, and predict the future, open the most suitable time for decision-making and action. With the help of numerology you can choose business partners or your spoose.

It is hard to say exactly when numerology was born, for the reason that in ancient times (in Babylon, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome) that separate science just was not there, it was another more common form – arifmomantiya (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 the mathematical systems Arabs, Druids, Egyptians, Phoenicians, and the sciences of human nature. Pythagoras traveled to Egypt, Chaldea and other countries, returning, he founded Philosophical Society in southern Italy. In this society, known as the Pythagorean school, his students studied science, especially arithmetic, geometry and astronomy, and they made lots of important discoveries. **Pythagoras discovered** that the four well known musical intervals can be expressed in a ratio between the numbers 1 to 4.Then he realized that the numbers 1 to 4 if they added the numbers add up to 10, form a sacred number that represents the material and metaphysical integrity of the universe, perfection. If the four notes can be expressed in numbers, Pythagoras believed, it is likely that all things can also be expressed in numbers. The universe is expressed in numbers from one to four, which, when added to the ten become the source of all things.

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

Particular importance in the study received the numerology of Kabbalah, where it’s 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 centurym nature of light, electricity and magnetism, ancient occult meaning ascribed to numbers began to ascribe and vibration energy.

Not immersed in the maze and a depth of Kabbalistic cosmology and esoteric doctrines, **modern numerology** is a simplified numerical and alphabetical code, based on the theories of Pythagoras – cut all of the digits 1 to 9 inclusive, because they are the starting numbers of which can be obtained from all the others to reduce the large numbers of elementary developed different systems. The easiest and most popular method – add up all the digits of that number, then, if formed 10 or more, add those numbers, this process continues until until they receive basic number from 1 to 9 (in some versions of numerological operations double figures 11 and 22, also known as the number of teachers are not reduced to single).

According to the number we can determine, for example, what is going to happen in the coming year and how to use it with the greatest benefit. In numerological terms, time moves on endlessly repeating cycles of 1 to 9. As part of 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 are **subjects of the universe**.

Each of us has his own individual cycle based on the individual numbers obtained by various operations with date of birth and / or **letters of the full name**. The purpose of this section in an interactive way to introduce everyone to the most important numerological operations that make up the basis for building **personal numerological horoscope**.
