Everything You Need to Know About Chaldean Numerology

2020-10-09 by


Numerology is the belief that numbers play a significant role in our lives. The study of numerology has emerged from many different civilizations, including Mayans, Indians, Chinese, and Babylonians.

Chaldean Numerology

Each civilisation held its own beliefs regarding the power of numbers and their relationship to critical events. Modern western numerology gives credit to Pythagoras as a pioneer in developing a reliable, fine-tuned system widely adopted today.

Chaldean numerology originated from an ancient middle-eastern country, Chaldea, that existed from the 10th to the 6th centuries, B.C.

What is Chaldean Numerology?

Chaldean numerology originated with the idea that the universe is made up of vibrations. Balanced vibrations seek out similarly balanced vibrations, and unbalanced vibrations do the same.

The amount of harmony or chaos in our lives is dependent on how well we match our vibrations.

Do You Create Your Own Destiny?

Another foundational principle of Chaldean Numerology is the idea of destiny. This is the belief that everyone has an unavoidable outcome determined by their birthdate.

Chaldean numerology also places a lot of importance on the alphabet, and as such, a person’s legal name is an equally important indicator of his or her destiny.

Chaldean Numerology Chart

In Chaldean Numerology, the chart has two categories: the highest self and the human self. These two categories represent the relationship between the physical (human self) and the metaphysical (higher self).

Higher Self

The numerical digits dictate the higher self in a person’s full birthdate. These vibrations represent a person’s inner essence, which guides what they want out of life.

Everything that we want to do, or to be, or to experience, is determined by our higher self.

The human self is determined by the combination of a person’s legal name and birthdate. The human self decides how you live your life, and if your choices are in harmony with your true purpose or higher self. 

Chaldean Numerology Numbers

According to Chaldean Numerology, the vibrations of the numbers come from ancient clay tablets. Some of the translations are lost to the old language, but a modern interpretation of the Chaldean number system is provided below.

Life Path Number 1 

Represented by the sun’s celestial body, life path number 1 is a feminine personality that celebrates freedom and abundance. A desire for success drives life path number 1.

As a natural-born leader, 1s may challenge authority to assume authority. They enjoy being in a position of power. Some 1s are creative, and most 1s also have a high level of perfectionism.

Life Path Number 2

Represented by the moon’s celestial body, life path number 2 is a masculine personality that celebrates creativity and empathy. Life path number 2 is driven by feelings and a desire to understand others.

Many 2s, especially men, are typically seen as weak for their deep connection to their feelings. This causes some conflict, as most people do not desire to be weak.

Life Path Number 3

Represented by the planet Jupiter, life path number 3 is a masculine personality celebrating knowledge, advancement, and strategy. Threes can make great business people because they are excellent at strategizing.

Threes have a growth mindset and are continually looking for ways to move forward. However, their downfall in business is that they have a difficult time delegating. 3s prefer to work alone.

Life Path Number 4

Represented by the planet Uranus, life path number 4 is a feminine personality that values their own unique qualities. Fours are naturally good at thinking outside-of-the-box and are natural-born innovators.

Life path number 4 is always looking to revolutionize the world. They push boundaries often and tend to create a lot of enemies because they push others outside of their comfort zones in the name of change.

Life Path Number 5

Represented by the planet Mercury, life path number 5 is known as the social butterfly. Their greatest strength in business is networking.

Always in motion, 5s are eager to communicate with others, which leads to fast friendship and a natural level of trust.

Life Path Number 6

Represented by the planet of Venus, life path number 6 is drawn to comfort. They like to be comfortable, which sometimes means that they tend to be homebodies. But they also make others feel comfortable, which gives them the appearance of being charismatic and trustworthy on the surface.

Unfortunately, some 6s can be masterful at manipulation, using their good charms for more devious purposes.

Life Path Number 7

Represented by Neptune’s planet, life path number 7 is the deep thinker fond of big and profound ideas. Others look to 7s for insight as they naturally look at things with the intent to look for deeper meanings.

Sevens are good at understanding the actions of others and often rely on their gut instincts. To their detriment, 7s are also afraid to appear weak and may use a facade to hide it.

Life Path Number 8

Represented by the planet Saturn, life path number 8 is associated with the driving force of destiny. It is believed that 8s were born to have a big impact on the world around them. They encourage big changes and meaningful movements.

8s tend to be very practical in their approach to life. Unfortunately, 8s also tend to experience more than their share of hardships in early life. It is believed that they need these experiences to build toughness that will allow them to achieve great things later in life.

Life Path Number 9

Represented by the planet Mars, life path number 9 is the bearer of justice, integrity, and honor.

9s tend to have a direct approach to life. They speak their minds freely without concern for offending anyone’s feelings. In a way, 9s are meant to be the enforcers. 

Chaldean Life Path Numbers Guide Higher Self

The life path number that you are given is decided by your full birth date and is unable to be changed. The significance of these numbers determines what each person’s higher purpose is in life.

Some people exist to bring happiness, while others bring judgment. Some people exist to be thinkers and innovators, while others exist to maintain normalcy and comfort. 

Life Dates

While many individuals naturally sort into their intended roles, it is not uncommon to find some people living in conflict. This means that their human self is misaligned with their higher self.

You might see a correction at some point in life, usually observed as a mid-life crisis or major career change. Or, you might see that person continues to fight the misalignment, which causes great stress and unhappiness.

How to Calculate your Chaldean Life Path Number

Calculating your life path number is relatively easy. Understanding what that number means and how it applies to your life is a bit more complex.

Start by writing out your birth date with a two-digit month + two-digit day + four-digit year.

Calculate Chaldean Life Path Number

04181984 represents April 18, 1984

Add the individual digits together: 0 + 4 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 35

If you get a single-digit number, you are done. If you get a double-digit number, add the digits together one more time to reveal your life path number.

3 + 5 = 8

Using the birthdate example above, this individual is a life path 8 or the type of individual who is meant to impact big changes in the world around them.

The Chaldean Alphabet in Numerology

Another component of Chaldean numerology is the importance placed on the alphabet. Chaldeans believed that the letters in your name were as much a part of your destiny as the date that you were born.

Understanding your human self, or the vibrations of the alphabet as it relates to your given name is an important step in aligning your human self with your higher self to live a harmonized life.

Calculate Chaldean Human Self Number

The Chaldean alphabet only uses digits 1-8. Digit 9 is a balance of sorts and is not included in alphabetical readings. The Chaldean alphabet assigns a numerical digital to each letter of the alphabet as follows:

Use this table to work out your human self number.

Using this system for the Chaldean alphabet, you can tabulate your human self number. Let’s look at an example:

Lucas = 4 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 3 = 16 

Miller = 5 + 1 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 2 = 20

First + Last = 16 + 20 = 36

Lucas Miller = 36 (The reduced digit 9 is also important)

Both single digit and compound numbers will hold a significant influence over your life. When reading your numbers, be sure to use your full name and read both compound numbers and reduced digits.
