## Types of Numerology

Many of thousands years ago, numerology was varied between most cultures throughout periods of time giving a meaning to the term. Because of this, many respected mathematicians with high authority throughout history has taught and studied the term numerology even though it has been dismissed as pseudoscience. The cultures of China, Japan, India, Babylon, and Egypt used numerology before the Greeks and Romans started to learn it.

The Greek philosopher and mathematician, Pythagoras, who is to be considered to the popular Pythagorean system, believed that reality is mathematical. To him, the universe is to be composed to mathematical patterns and that all things can be explained by numbers to correspond to the patterns of the vibrations. Pythagoras adopted teachings from the notable Socrates and Plato and studied by early Christian scholars, including St. Augustine. Thus it continues to be studied to this very day and this theory led to his expansion during the Renaissance.

3 main studies are:

- Chaldean
- Pythagorean
- Kabbalah

Each of the 3 systems offers different interpretations of your life path. They do this by calculating your number meaning differently.

The Chaldean System is probably the oldest system which is currently studied. The origin of this belief was back in Ancient Babylon. This system is not like the more common Pythagorean system where a calculation is determined by alphabetical order. Instead the letter to number calculations is not determined by the alphabetical order but is designated to particular vibrations the letters emit.

The formula is based on calculating numbers from 1 to 8 with the number 9 being sacred or holy thus it doesn’t have a letter assigned to it. The number 9 can only show up is when all calculations are done resulting in the number 9.

**Pythagorean (Western) Number System**

The Pythagorean System is the most popular system known to man. The number value is assigned by the number system in the sequence of the Western alphabet which uses number formulas which are based on calculating the numbers 1 to 9.

The Kabbalah System originated from the Hebrew culture. This is a number system which tends to only take the person’s name and not their birth date into the equation. This causes it to be not popular to modern numerologists. This system has assigned twenty-two vibrations ranging from 1 to 400.
