# Numerology Is More Than Numbers

Over thiry-five years ago, I picked up a book on numerology and began to have a hard time believing that numbers had anything to do with my life. Shortly thereafter, I was awakened from a deep sleep by a loud voice that seemed to scream into my ears, "Numbers are real!"

Since that time, I have found out that numbers really are real.

Oh, I can't blame you for not believing that numbers are real. I didn't for a very long time. But if you diligently investigate how they show what is happening, and will be happening in your world, you will find some amazing truths.

Almost all of us have heard of the strange "coincidences" of numbers. I was born with a 17 birthday, which adds up to an 8. My social security adds up to an 8, I had my first date with my wife on January 8, 1988. If you add all those numbers up you will get an 8: January is 1+8+1+9+8+8 =35 which reduces to an 8. She lived at an address that added up to an 8. I know. You are going to say that could all just be a coincidence. I won't argue that, but if you actually study the cycles of numbers in your life you will find some stunning information. (Of course, you probably know that if you multiply 9 by any other number, you will come out with a nine if you reduce those numbers to a single digit. Don't you fid this curious?)

For instance, everyone is in a particular phase of a 9 year cycle. Let's say that if your birthday is on March 14 (3 plus 5= 8), you can add that number to 2005 (totals to 7) and determine that the number that will "rule" your year from January to January of the next year is the number 15 which reduces to a 6.

Each one of the numbers, 1 through 9, have their own specific meaning and show where you are in the 9 year cycle. Traditionally, according to the great numerologist, Juno Jordan, the number 6 for a personal year is "...your duty year for unselfishness, truth, justice, charity. These should be your motives in everything you do. It is not likely that you will get satisfactory results any other way."

Please do not fall into the trap that a number is simply an abstraction or a mathematical convenience. All you have to do is investigate the effect of numbers on your life and you will be convinced beyond your wildest dreams. They numbers are just waiting there for you to discover how "magical" they really are.

Although these 9 numbers are astounding in their own right, they are even more powerful and revealing when their meanings are combined with the zodiac signs and planets. An astrologer who is proficient with numbers is someone who can help us all understand how all our numbers work with the heavens to reveal our destiny. Just remember, numbers are real.
