Numbers play an important role in our daily lives. We are all under the influence of numbers through our names, addresses, time, money, addresses, telephones, keyboards, tapes, security numbers, bank accounts, elevators etc. Living without numbers is very difficult for human beings. Though the effect these numbers have on us cannot be seen or felt by us, these numbers do have an enormous effect on our lives, that's the theory behind Numerology.
Numerology, as the name denotes, is the prediction of the future of the human beings using numbers. It is believed that each number has a meaning of its own and has its own influences on people.
Using the practical application of the elementary laws of mathematics to the material existence of man, Numerology helps us to have a glimpse of our future. It is similar to Astrology but is easier than the latter. Numerology uses numbers to denote objects which influence people in the universe while Astrology uses the objects itself such as the sun, the moon and the planets which influence the life of human beings significantly. Numerology deals with Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Saturn and Mars which are denoted by numbers from 1 to 9 respectively. The date of birth of the person and his name is used to calculate the numerological influence on a person. It is also said that the influence of numbers changes from time to time.
There are five different types of numerology Kabbalah, Chaldean, Pythagorean, Abracadabra and New Kabbalah, among which the Pythagorean system is more popular because it is easier to learn.
