Numerology is the ancient practice of using numbers to describe and understand the world around, and within, an individual.

## The Many Facets of Numerology

From Pythagoras who famously declared "all is number", to Archimedes who discovered Pi, mathematicians have strived to explain the world through numbers. The art of numerology also seeks to explain the world around us, but how?

### Making the Numbers Work

Everything in the world can either be reduced to, or explained through, the number system. Letters of the alphabet have a corresponding number. For example, A=1, B=2, and so forth. Using this method means that our entire name and birth date can be added up and reduced to, in most cases, a single digit.

From there, each number is assigned its own characteristics. Following this logic, if you have a particular number for your name and/or birth date, you too would embody these characteristics.

### The Different Roles Numbers Play

With this science, you can find:

• Heart's Desire: This symbolizes the very "heart" of your name and represents where, or in which circumstances, you feel happiest.
• Personality Number: This number is very similar to the rising astrological sign in that it represents how you are seen by the outside world.
• Destiny Number: It can be quite a lot to digest, but this number represents what you've come here to do. Basically, it's your purpose in life, or your life's work.

## Find Love

Can you use numbers to help find love? Many experts in the field say yes! By comparing and contrasting an individual's chart with that of a loved one or romantic interest, parallels can be found as well as where disruptions may lie. Love is certainly a complicated subject, one where words often fail. Why not let numbers do the talking? Articles like the ones found in this category can show you how!
