what is numerology?
The Science of Numerology is the Science of Numbers and their application to human affairs.
Its principles were first laid down and codified by the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, who flourished about 600 years before the Christian era . Incidentally, we are indebted to him for our present system of Music, which is based on the very same laws of progression that are the foundation of the Science of Numerology.
There is, however,fragmentary evidence that some form of Numerology was practiced long before the time of Pythagoras-its origin being attributed to the Chinese Numerology , who had attained a high standard of learning and culture long before our Western civilization had begun.
The Jewish Kabala, too, played a great part in the foundation of the science, and there is abundant evidence of its influence on Modern Numerology as practiced at the present time.
There is no doubt that much of the ancient lore of Numerology has been lost, but during the last few years a renaissance has taken place, especially in America, where Numerology is often referred to as the “Science of Success”
Many excellent books have been written recently on this Science but, unfortunately, most of them are much too technical and involved, and only succeed in confusing the mind of the average enquirer. The Author has therefore endeavored to place a working system before the public which will be easily understood and enable the reader to work out his own numbers, and those of his friends, with very little difficulty.
There are only nine “primal” numbers, 1 to 9, and Numerology is based on these numbers, because any number, however big, can be reduced to one of these nine by simply adding from left to right, and reducing until only a single number is left.
Now there are only nine distinct types of people, each of them governed by one of the nine primal numbers, as follows :-
1. The Number One- AGGRESSIVE or COURAGEOUS type.
2. The Number Two-PLACID or BALANCED type.
3. The Number Three-EXPRESSIVE or ACTIVE type.
4. The Number Four -DELIBERATE or CAUTIOUS type.
5. The Number Five-VERSATILE or RESTLESS type.
6. The Number Six-DEPENDABLE or CONSIDERATE type.
7. The Number Seven-MYSTIC or MELANCHOLY type.
8. The Number Eight-SUCCESSFUL or POWERFUL type.
9. The Number Nine-UNIVERSAL or MAGNETIC type.
You, dear Reader, MUST belong to one of these types. Which? Numerology will tell you ; but it will tell you much more besides, not only about yourself but about your friends. With very little study, it will enable you to ‘weigh up’ people in a way which will astound you. Why? Because, unlike Phrenology, Palmistry, Divination by Cards, etc.,
Numerology is an EXACT SCIENCE.Numerology will not only tell you your Destiny Number -it will also tell you your Positive Qualities, to be developed, your Negative Qualities, to be suppressed. It will indicate the best mode of life-the best profession to adopt the right people to mix with, from whom you will benefit,both materially and mentally; that is to say. the people whose numbers vibrate to your number. Practice this wonderful Science, therefore, because the knowledge of yourself you will obtain from it, if acted upon in an intelligent manner, may quite easily turn failure into success.
