An overview of of the numerical systems used by numerologists
In numerology, calculating life path numbers and other numbers based on words or names requires the use of a chart linking numbers to each individual letter. However, which numerical system you choose to use will have an effect upon the outcome of a numerological interpretation. Below, we explore the various numerical systems you can use to match letters to numbers and their meanings.
The system used most commonly links each letter in the English alphabet (A-Z)
to their numerical position within the alpabet. For example, A=1, B=2, C=3,
D=4, E=5, F=6 and G=7, and so on. In numerology, it is useful to link each
letter with a single-digit number, so letters J and later in the alphabet,
which have a two digit numerical position, must be reduced to single
digit values. We do this by taking the 2 numbers of the letter's position
in the alphabet and add them together. For example, the letter K is the 11th
letter of the alphabet, so we take 1+1 and the number 2 becomes associated
Below, you'll see these single-digit values in a table:
The second method, the Chaldean system, works in a similar way to the first,
but assigns different values to each letter. The number 9 is considered holy
by the Babylonian civilization from which it originates, so the Chaldean method
assigns letters a number between 1 and 8, except where, in name numerology,
9 is the sum of letters' values. Numerologists consider that single-digit
numbers under the Chaldean method offer insight into outer influences, while
double-digit outcomes tell us about the inner influences of a person.
Below, you'll find a table with the Chaldean values of letters:
A, J, I, Y
B, R, K
C, G, L, S
D, M, T
E, H, N, X
U, V, W
You'll notice that letters phonetically similar are often grouped together,
such as C and G, and given the same numeric value.
Which System to Use?
The system you choose to use when interpreting names in numerology depends
on your view. The basic system is much easier to calculate on a piece of paper
than the Chaldean method, as it's more logical. However, if you're looking
to add a culturally different approach to add to your numerological calculations,
or are looking to widen your skills in terms of numerology, give the Chaldean
method a go.
