Today, people have been deciding on their relationship matters using astrology. The connection between Numerology and astrology lies in the everyday use of birthdates to calculate lucky numbers.

A lucky number is a number which seems favourable to a person. The Chinese put their trust in them more than anyone else in the world. The number is chosen not only in accordance to numerology but also according to its sound which should rhyme with the good words of Chinese vocabulary. The Lucky Number is calculated from the date of birth and the name of the individual. Thus this number is permanent for each person for the rest of his life unless his name is changed. On the lucky numbers are based much of the Chinese customs and mannerisms.

As such, the lucky number is not expected to bring good fortune or luck always but having it brings satisfaction to the person; the belief is that it will always put him at an edge over the others whenever his lucky number appears or is used by him as in money bills, phone numbers or bills, house/apartment numbers or vehicle number plates.

* Finding Your Life Number

Know the number's significance. Your Life Number is considered the most significant of your core numbers. It offers your life's potential outline, the path you will take through life and the themes that will shape it. This number reveals what lessons you will learn, challenges you will face, and opportunities you will receive in the form of a broad outline. Ultimately it is your choice to deviate from this number's lesson, but within Numerology it is believed that following the path of your Life Path Number is the most fulfilling choice to make.

  • Any positive traits associated with this number will manifest as unique skills and capacities that aid you in all aspects of life.
  • Negative traits associated with each number show you personal deficits. Or rather, point out areas in your inner and outer life that need attention in order to find balance.

Calculate your Life Number. In essence, you add each number in your birth date together until a single digit is achieved. The method however is very specific. We'll use the birthday December 17, 1986 as an example.(Note: Check the section near the bottom of the page for more information on each number you calculate.)

  • Reduce the month, day, and year to single digits. It is common for some numbers to take multiple reductions. In such cases, repeat the same technique until a single digit or Master Number is achieved.
    1. Month: 12 = 1+2 = 3
    2. Day: 17 = 1+7 = 8
    3. Year: 1986 = 1+9+8+6 = 24 = 2+4 = 6
  • Next take the resulting three single digits or Master Numbers and add them: 3+8+6 = 17 = 1+ 7 = 8.
  • And so, in the instance of December 17, 1986, we get a Life Path Number of 8.

Learn the significance of your birthday. Though your Birthday Number will influence you less than the other four numbers, it still included as part of the core. It represents a special gift or talent that will help you on your life path. In the many spheres of New Age knowledge and practices (such as Numerology), it is not uncommon to find those who believe we choose when we are born, or that we are destined for our specific birthday. And so the Birthday Number holds a special significance, explaining what unique gift we have to bring forward.

Determine your Birthday Number. This requires no calculation and is simply the date on which you were born. In this case there is no need for reductions. So for example if you were born on the 13th, 23rd, or 31st, your numbers would 13, 23, and 31, respectively.

* Finding Your Personality Number

Learn how you interact with the world. If the vowels tell us what is most true about our inner self, perhaps the consonants tell us what is seen on the exterior. In the study of Numerology, this is held true. One's Personality Number reveals those parts of yourself that are easiest to show to others. It articulates how to filter the people and experiences you want out of life through your external behavior.

  • This number goes beyond your own agency and also explains what others observe about you within a brief encounter. It shows the principal personality traits that are noticed with little effort on the part of those around you.

Calculate your Personality Number using the consonants of your full name. Follow the same pattern as above using only the consonants to determine your number. Returning to ROBERT NESTA MARLEY we get the letters R, B, R, T, N, S, T, M, R, L, Y. Note that we count Y as a consonant and not a vowel in this case. Within numerology Y is always considered a consonant if it is next to a vowel with which it forms the same syllable. So it is in this example, where it functions to produce an "ee" sound.

  • R+B+R+T = 9+2+9+2 = 22 = 2+2 = 4
  • N+S+T = 5+1+2 = 8
  • M+R+L+Y = 4+9+3+7 = 23 = 2+3 = 5
  • 4+8+5 = 17 = 1+7 = 8
