What Is Numerology?
Numerology can be defined as the science of numbers, not in the mathematical sense, but in as much as it is a branch of astrology. Numerology means that each number has a deep significance of its own, and can be used to understand the inner traits of a person, their talents, their life goals, their hidden characteristics, and to predict the person’s future in all areas of life such as career, love and romance, financial situation, etc. Besides, Numerology can also be used by a person to better understand themselves and the world around them.
The History of Numerology
The history of numerology goes back thousands of years. Its variations are found in most cultures throughout history. Though many people promptly dismiss it as a fancy fashion, a lot of well-known mathematicians of all time have minutely studied it. The earliest records of Numerology are found in Egyptian and Babylonian civilizations. There is also evidence that Numerology was used in ancient times in Rome, China, Greece, and Japan. Modern numerology is usually attributed to Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher. Though it is unknown if Pythagoras invented Numerology, he definitely created some theories behind it, which took numbers to a completely different level. However, the man who actually coined the word ‘Numerology’ and also helped it gain recognition and awareness in modern times is Dr. Julian Stenton.
