There are many types of numerology that can show you different things. Depending on what your goals are and what you hope to get from a numerology reading, you’ll choose one type over another. Following are a few of the types of numerology.

Number Definitions

Number definitions refer to the specific meanings of different numbers. There is no one specific list of meanings for numbers. However, there are some basic definitions that you can apply to your life depending on your situation. You can easily think of the numbers that come up in your life in a regular basis and discover what the meaning behind them is. For example, the number 7 often means thought or consciousness. If you see 7’s constantly popping up in your life, it’s a good idea to think deeply about what the universe is trying to tell you.

Digit Summing

Another form of numerology is digit summing. This reduces a number or a word to one single digit. If you’re looking to find the meaning behind your birth date, you would add the digits together until you came up with one number. For example, if you birth date was 2/25/1980 you would add the numbers as follows :

2 + 2 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 27; 2 + 7 = 9.

You’d then find the definition of the final number, in this case 9. The same thing can be done with words. Typically the number value of each letter is equal to its place in the alphabet. For example, C would be equal to 3, as it’s the 3rd letter of the alphabet.

Chinese Numerology

Chinese numerology is a special kind of numerology that assigns specific meaning to each number. Some numbers are considered luckier than others. Generally, even numbers are considered lucky while odd numbers are considered unlucky. Chinese numerology also subscribes to the belief that numbers that come in pairs are the luckiest. The basic meanings of the digits in Chinese numerology are as follows :

1 – Sure 2 – Easy 3 – Live 4 – The number 4 is considered unlucky because pronunciation of the word 4 sounds like the word for death or suffering 5 – Me, myself or never 6 – Easy or smooth 7 – A cuss word 8 – Sudden fortune or wealth 9 – Long (in regards to time) – also a cuss word

Chinese numerology also has many number combinations that are thought to have specific meanings. Some of the more popular ones are :

99 – Doubly long (in regards to time) – sometimes means eternal 168 – Prosperity together 814 – Wealth for an entire life time 888 – Triple the prosperity

When you’re considering numerology, it’s important to decide which of the above options is best for you. Take a look at a few different numerology readings within the different schools of thought. Sometimes you’ll realize that one works better for you than another. You might also realize that you prefer a combination of different types of numerology. Like anything else, there’s nothing wrong with taking all the information into consideration to make the best analysis of the situation.
