Numerology: The Numbers Around You
Excerpted from the book Numerology; Key To Your Inner Self
The numbers in your environment give indications that should not be ignored. Understanding their meaning and their purpose can help you to move along the path of life more smoothly, and with less anxiety.
One of the less important, but sometimes telling numbers, is your house number. It foretells the kind of events and experiences, both positive and negative, that you will likely encounter during your stay in that house. As I explained elsewhere on this site, all numbers have a front and a back, a light side and a dark side. No one number is better than another, although you may want to avoid house numbers that reduce to a Karmic Debt number, such as 13, 14, 16, and 19. (See Karmic Debt Numbers for more about this subject.) A house with a Karmic Debt number will undoubtedly attract the attributes of that number to the people who inhabit it. You would welcome a house that carries a Karmic Debt only if: you are consciously and willingly looking for a breakdown of the old you; are aspiring to a path of deep soul-searching (16); or you feel a need to be alone and learn to find the strength inside of you to deal with life's challenges without the help and support of others (19).
You should judge a number to be desirable only in relation to your personal needs and hopes.

The house number is much more important and personal than the street name, which pertains to all the individuals living on that street.
Similarly, your telephone number gives an indication of the contacts and communication channeled through the number. The area code and the first three digits are negligible for the same reason the street name is less important – many people share those numbers, making them less personal. However, the last four digits of your telephone number are yours and yours alone. (If you live outside the USA and your phone number is laid out differently, look for the numbers that identify only you, i.e. ignore area codes, precinct numbers, etc.) You must focus on the numbers that you are not sharing with your neighbors or community.
Understanding your house or telephone number.
To understand your house or telephone number, you need to look at the single digit sum of the complete number.
First, add the digits together and reduce them to a single-digit number.
For example, a house number 3417 is 3 + 4 + 1 + 7 = 15, 1 + 5 = 6. In this case, 6 is the singular most important number. Taken by itself, 6 would be a good number for a house occupied by a family with children, because it is a family-oriented, domestic number. However, there are three layers of information to be found in our calculation. First, contemplate the number 6, which is the sum of the individual digits. Next, look at the double-digit number of 15. This reveals that the 6 gives high marks to individualism and personal freedom (1 and 5). Finally, consider the individual numbers.
When you consider moving into a house that is very much to your liking, I would not recommend passing it up just because the numbers do not reflect your personal favorites. If, however, the house number is unacceptable to you, it may be possible to have a different number assigned to the house.
Telephone numbers give you more control than addresses. Your telephone provider may be able to help you choose between a list of available numbers.
