All Types Of Numerology Numbers Explained For Beginners
2021-06-01 by Olivia
Complete beginner to Numerology? You’ve come to the right place.
I wish I had this resource when I was dipping my toes into this magical world all those years ago.
I have laid out below what I consider to be the most comprehensive beginner-friendly list of terms and concepts that you’ll need to get a clearer picture of how numerology works.
It’s also something that I’ve been struggling to find myself. So here it is!
Numerology sounds like magic or unrealistic, even though there is a science behind it.
Our universe is the expression of energy. And numbers reflect those energies in our lives through different means.
Read on and start uncovering your primary purpose, special traits, and compatibility with others to enjoy a smooth, hassle-free life.
Core numbers have a powerful influence over your life. You can calculate them using your birth date and name.
They hog the spotlight in numerology because their energies last a lifetime.
Even if you change your name in the future, you can’t completely avoid your birth name’s effects.
So most parents who are into numerology spend significant time and though deciding their baby’s name.
Here’s a detailed look into what the five core numbers have to offer.
Life Path Number
Out of all the core numbers, the Life Path number is the most important one. It is the head of all numbers in your whole Numerology chart!
Why? It illustrates the path you should follow for a successful life.
It tells you what you should learn and adapt to a successful life.
So how can you calculate your Life Path number?
It’s easy—simple math.
All you need to know is your complete birth date.
It is calculated from the sum of the digits of your birth year, month, and exact date.
Let’s take a look at an example.
If your birth date is 23-7-1993, your Life Path number will be:
Birth Year – 1+9+9+3= 22
Month – 0+7=7
Date – 2+3= 5
Life Path number – 22+7+5= 34
Now we will convert the double-digit number (34) to a single-digit value by adding the two terms.
The Life Path number for the above example is 3+4= 7.
|Life Path Number||Characteristics||Career|
Great at managing
Full of wisdom
Has a strong spiritual side
Spiritual leader, teacher, and humanitarian
As you can see in the chart above, the last three numbers (11, 22, and 33) aren’t reduced to a single digit.
They’re known as Master numbers.
To understand them, you should first understand the nature of numbers in general.
They vibrate at different intensity levels. If the intensity level is high, the number will have a stronger vibration and give off more energy.
This is exactly the case with Master numbers. They vibrate at a higher frequency level than other numbers.
If you get a Master number in any kind of numerology reading, it means you’re the chosen one.
You have the ultimate power to set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd due to your special talents and strong potential.
Some numerologists also categorize 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99 into Master numbers.
However, only the three Master numbers make a ‘Triangle of Enlightenment’
Your Birthday number is simply your birth date.
You just need the day of your month you were born since it has more weight comparatively.
So If you were born on 17th October, your Birthday number is 17.
Your Birthday number could be anything from 1 to 31.
However, some numerologists prefer to reduce the double-digit values into a single number.
You can analyze your double and single digits for a better understanding of yourself.
What is it famous for?
The Birthday number tells you about your specific characteristics from early childhood.
It shows who you are as a person and what traits make you comfortable in your own skin.
You can relate to your Birthday number strongly within the 28th and 56th year.
Each number has its own interpretation.
People with the same dates could have similar traits by birth.
But different environments and experiences can alter them to some degree.
|Your Birthday Number||Traits|
|1||Natural leader, Strong self-confidence|
|2||Good social skills, Creative imagination|
|3||Conversation starters, Restless attitude – always up to something|

|31||Practical, Plans ahead|
The next three core numbers are related to your name.
The vibrational frequency and effects of your birth name stay with you till your last breath.
It’s important to note here that I’m only talking about your complete birth name that’s on your birth certificate.
Your Expression number determines the primary traits that make you your true self.
They were present when you were born. You can say they’re part of your spiritual DNA.
Your name is simply the gateway to express those inborn qualities that can help with your life mission.
It reflects your inner self!
Your Expression number is calculated when you add all the numerical values of your full name.
A Pythagorean chart below shows the associated numbers with letters.

Heart’s Desire Number
As you can imagine from the name, this number reveals what you want from life. People don’t normally see this side of you.
Sometimes, you make choices you don’t understand.
Your Heart’s Desire number has a deep connection behind decisions you make out of the blue.
It also gives an indication as to why you react a certain way when you’re happy or upset.
You add the numerical values of your name’s vowels to find this number.
|Your Heart’s Desire Number||What Does Your Heart Really Want?|
|1||Independence, leadership skills, your own start-up|
|2||Peace, love, harmony|

It identifies parts of your personality that appeal to your friends and family.
How can you benefit from your Personality number?
It sets a benchmark.
You’ll see a mental image of people and situations you want in life.
Your Personality number doesn’t just put forward your external self.
Once you get some insight into it, you will only let those things or people approach you that click with your inner self.
It’s like a layer of protection necessary to keep your real-self intact.
To calculate your Personality number, you only have to add the consonants (non-vowel letters) of your full name.
|Your Personality Number||What’s Your First Impression?|
|1||Controlling, courageous, dynamic|
|2||Warm, friendly, reliable|
|3||Fun to be with, full of life, charming|

Unlike the core numbers above, the secondary numerology numbers don’t last a lifetime, but they’re still important.
Your Power number represents the energy you have to follow your life ambitions.
Its resonance is more apparent when you’re around 40 to 54.
Power energy increases gradually during its active years.
Once it’s in full force, you will see a big change in your outlook on life.
To calculate your Power number, simply add your Life Path number and Destiny number.
Apart from the Master numbers, other twin double digits have a potent influence on your power energy.
These numbers are 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. They share the traits with their reduced single value.
But in essence, they are more powerful.
|Power Numbers||What’s the Big Difference?|
|44=8||An eight through double four will have higher chances of succeeding in life.|
|55=10=1||One is known for its leadership abilities. When two fives make 1, nothing can distract you from your potential.|
|66=12=3||The number three compliments the six with its self-sacrificing and responsible nature. You can be a legendary artist!|
|77=14=5||The spiritual seven with highly intelligent five will make you think out of the box so you can tackle the obstacles thrown at you.|
|88=16=7||You can find your direction if you combine the eight’s potential for spiritual purposes.|
|99=18=9||This is a unique and very powerful combination, as both single and double digits have 9 in them. You can make this world a better place to live if you keep up with your goals.|
Since your Power number is the combination of your Life Path number and Destiny number, it shares similar traits with both of them.
You can check out the charts above to read about your specific number.
The repeating pattern of numbers is called the Angel number.
If you keep on seeing a specific pattern of numbers, let’s say 111 or 555, get ready to decode the mysterious message the universe has sent your way.
It’s not a coincidence!
Maybe the universe is trying to validate you or send a warning. Or it’s just its way of patting you on your shoulder.
You will know once you interpret the repeating numbers.
|Your Angel Numbers||What’s the Secret Message?|
|111||Let go of what’s bothering you and manifest your ideas into reality.|
|222||Try to balance your life affairs for a more positive approach.|
|333||It’s time to acknowledge your life’s purpose. Stop wasting your time on pointless things.|
|444||Don’t give up just yet! Have faith in yourself and do what you must with confidence.|
|555||Prepare yourself for some big changes ahead!|
|666||Why don’t you take some rest and start over when you’re fresh and mentally sound?|
|777||The spiritual power is looking out for you. Take a step ahead and embrace your natural self.|
|888||The universe knows all about your efforts. You will soon be rewarded with the best!|
|999||You will soon begin a new life chapter. Take the opportunity to be your better version.|
In most cases, your lucky numbers are your core numbers.
However, there are a few numbers that are considered to be extremely lucky in general.
The luckiest of them is 7.
If you dig in deep, you will see the reason why. The number 7 has a lot of spiritual and worldly connections.
|Seven deadly sins (cardinal sins)||Seven rainbow colors|
|Seven heavens (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and some Indian religions)||Seven seas|
|Seven means perfection in the Bible||Seven Continents|
Similarly, the number 70 is also considered lucky because of its strong relationship with the world.
To be honest, there is no such thing as a bad or unlucky number, at least in numerology.
Your lucky numbers can be unlucky for someone else.
There is no solid evidence that proves a particular number to be always unlucky, no matter what.
Even so, some people find a few numbers to be unlucky.
It could be because of their experiences associated with that particular number.
It is important to note here that the concept of unlucky numbers totally depends on your belief and experiences.
Here are a few numbers that are considered unlucky in different cultures.
- People with the number 13 in their numerology chart may suffer from frustration and have a tough life.
- In Japanese culture, the number 4 and the word death have a similar pronunciation. So it’s assumed to bring bad luck in the Far East.
- According to the Bible, the repeating number 666 is Evil’s number. A few countries refrain from putting this number on car plates. They make sure their phone numbers don’t end with this pattern.
- It’s believed that the number 43 brings out your animal instincts, putting a barrier between your soul and body. You won’t be able to cherish your spiritual self.
Your life changes as you grow up.
With the help of numerology chart cycles, you can predict when the change will happen and its purpose.
For each numerology cycle, you need to calculate the cycle period and the cycle number.
|The Cycle Period||The Cycle Number|
|Tells when things will change in your life||Represents energies that can be interpreted to find the meaning behind a specific cycle.|
|Calculated through your birth date||Calculated with your birth date or name|
Here’s are the eight numerology cycles:
|The Power Cycle||Changes only onceThe gradual change-over happens during midlife.|
|The Life Period Cycle||The first Life Period cycle lasts around 27-35 years.The second Life Period cycle has a duration of 27 years.The third Life Period cycle lasts for the rest of your life.|
|The Pinnacle Cycle||The first Pinnacle cycle has a time frame of 27 to 35 years.The second and third Pinnacle cycle has a time frame of 9 years.The fourth Pinnacle cycle lasts till the end of your life.|
|The Challenges||Similar to the Life Period cycle or the Pinnacle cycle (depends on the numerologist)|
|The Essence Transit||Yearly cycleIt will last from birthday to birthday.|
