What do numbers mean? Numerologists assign numeric values to every letter in the English alphabet. Thus each letter of the name has a value. You can use this table to calculate your own name, birth and fate numbers. The numbers assigned to letters are: A I J Q Y = 1 B K R = 2 C G L S = 3 D M T = 4 E H N X = 5 U V W = 6 O Z = 7 F P = 8 9 is not assigned to any letter. How to arrive at your lucky number: Your personality, destiny and characteristics are a combination of three factors - name number, birth number and fate number. Your birth number is your lucky number and if this number coincides with the dominating planet in your chart then it is the best number for you. And if the birth number is a difficult number then the name should be chosen so as to soften its influence. In case of a fortunate birth number, the name can be altered to match the birth number. To achieve the best possible results, the name number and the birth number should be compatible. This is a simple example that will help you find your lucky numbers: Birth number is the date on which you are born, reduced to a single digit root number. For example, for a person born on 28 April, the birth number is calculated as follows 2 + 8 = 10 1 + 0 = 1 So the birth number is 1, single number is 1 and compound number is 10. Fate number is the total of the value of digits in the date, month and year of your birth, brought to a single digit root number. For example, for a person born on 28 April, 1953, 2 + 8 + 0+ 4+ 1 + 9 + 5 + 3 = 32 3 + 2 = 5 So the fate number is 5, single number is 5 and compound number is 32. Name number is a sum of the alphabetic values which can be reduced to a single digit root number. This is taken as your name number N E H R U 5 5 5 2 6 Total = 23 2 + 3 = 5 To sum up, let me make it clear that numerology has no power to erase karma, but it can certainly remove the unnecessary obstacles from your path and cause business and personal matters to run smoothly, as it changes the vibrations of the name.
