NUMEROLOGY; CALCULATION METHODS.
This section discusses calculation methods used in Pythagorean numerology.
Some differences exist among numerologists and their systems of calculations. We have done our best to maintain absolute integrity to the Pythagorean system based on extensive research covering more than three decades. If you have encountered some of those differences in your own research, consider this: All calculations in numerology are based on an underlying logic that is easy to recognize yet largely unknown even among many professional numerologists.
Although the calculation methods are very simple — a matter of adding or subtracting single- and double-digit numbers — numerology is based on a rather complex cosmic network of inter-connecting patterns and cycles. These patterns and cycles are recognizable. It is in recognizing these patterns, that we are able to predict events and influences when certain criteria are met.
What follows are short descriptions of how each number in the chart was calculated. Click any of the aspects listed below, or scroll further down the page and read about the aspects one at a time.
When we talk about "reducing a number to a single-digit," we mean adding each of the digits until a single-digit is left. For example, we reduce the number 367 by adding 3 + 6 + 7 = 16. Next, we add 1 + 6 = 7. We have now reduced the number 367 to the single-digit number 7.
NOTE: In many areas of your chart, Master
numbers are not reduced during the calculations. For example, to reduce the year
1966 to a single digit, we add 1+9+6+6=22. Twenty-two is a Master number, therefore,
we do not reduce 22 any further.
Many numerologists will write 22/4, because the 22 is also a 4. This is purely a matter of personal preference.
