An Introduction to Numerology
Numerology, like Astrology, can be traced back to ancient times. Babylonians are said to have invented this system, and various connections between numbers and mystical wisdom have also been prevalent in Egypt and Greece.
Though various systems have their own specific nuances and interpretations, modern Numerology holds some consistent beliefs that are still used by spiritual seekers today.
One of the most common ways that Numerology is applied is to add the digits in your complete birthday to come up with your Life Path Number. So, for instance, if you were born on May 3, 1992, you would add 5+3+1+9+9+2=29. But in devising the Life Path number, digits, you would then add both the digits 2 and 9 which give you 11. In most cases, all numbers are added until you have single digits. The few exceptions to this are the numbers 11, 22, and 33, which are considered Master Numbers and have special meanings.
So, although 29 reduces to 11, if your life path number is something such as 30, you would then add 3+0 and come up with 3 as the actual Life Path number. Each number has special meaning and significance that can help you understand personality traits as well as destiny and life purpose.

Numerology And Relationships
In addition to considering the Numerology of your Life Path and how this relates to potential partners or love interests, you can also use the power of Numerology to analyze relationships in other ways.
You can analyze the Numerology of the date you meet someone new, for example. If you meet your love interest on April 18th of 2021, then the number associated with your meeting is 4+1+8+2+0+2+1=18, 1+8 then is reduced to 9. This number tells you something instrumental about the purpose of your meeting and the nature of the relationship.
You can also use this technique to gain insight into specific dates that may be important milestones for the relationship such as the date of a wedding or the date of a marriage proposal.
Now that you have an understanding of how Numerology works, you can develop a deeper awareness of the important people who come into your life. You can also appreciate the purpose of others on your journey. Numerology helps to teach us to appreciate the purpose of our many relationships including the lessons brought to our lives by romantic partners.
Relationships can be so complicated. You don’t want to leave the major milestones to chance, do you?
Having a basic grasp of Numerology can help you plan the journey to finding fulfillment in love. But this is a journey that is best not traveled alone.
By using a number of powerful, spiritual systems including Numerology, Astrology, Tarot, and more, I can help you truly unleash your attraction power and find the keys to overcoming the pitfalls that have plagued your relationships.
If things haven’t been adding up for you in love, you may be missing some crucial lessons or signals.
I don’t want you to miss out on love. I can work with you to make sure you understand how to work with the love of your life to make sure you don’t let that special someone slip away.
