Numerology attempts to describe the relative existence of everything in nature, based on the premise that all is reducible to numbers, and that all numbers follow the natural law of mathematical progression. In particular, ratios of numbers become pure entities and take on fundamental importance.
A basic axiom is that all things in nature evolve in cycles, mathematical progressions which are measurable and predictable. [And cycles have ratios -- as in the year, the time for the Earth to circle the Sun, being given in terms of the cycle of the Earth to rotate once upon its axis, a day.] Cycles are often based on Time, but not necessarily so, as even counting from one to twenty involves a cycle of returning to the use of “1” following the “9”, etc.
Numerology deals primarily with rational numbers, specifically integers. It even goes so far as to limit itself, for the most part, to the 9 symbols, which make up 90% of the base 10 system. Yet, it contains within those 9 symbols a significant amount of information. In fact, together with Astrology and Tarot, Numerology is used as part of the symbolism in interpreting the Tree of Life -- one of the more profound philosophical concepts.
Numbers are mankind’s oldest symbols, fundamental to measurement and abstract ideas. Numbers are, for example, more practical than words, in that counting apples might be more important than having a word for “apple”. Numbers and cycles also suggest the idea of predictability -- and thus one of the basic attributes of Numerology.
The use of numbers for predictive purposes were used by Chaldeans, Phoenicians, Hindus, Chinese, Hebrews, and early Christians. Most of the symbologies employed followed the progression of numbers, with Ones signifying a beginning or genesis, the higher numbers representing the progress through life, and Nines signifying completion.
Shortly after 600 B.C.E., the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, founded the first university and developed his theory of numbers. These theories are the basis of all natural law today and are also the foundation for the occult science of Numerology. Pythagoras determined that everything progressed in predictable cycles, and assumed a relationship with respect to the alphabet -- i.e. the Sumerian idea that letters, gods and goddesses were assigned numbers relative to their station.
The updated Pythagorean conversion table uses numbers 1 through 9, each of which is related to certain letters of the alphabet. An alternate version is the updated Chaldean Conversion Table, which works in a similar way except it is numbered 1 to 8 and the letters associated with each number are different as well. [There is no number 9 in the Chaldean chart because, to the ancient Chaldeans, 9 was believed to be a sacred number and was kept apart from the rest -- see, e.g., Nines.) Numerologists use these two methods for calculation with the Chaldean table being the oldest and most accurate.
Every number has a certain power which is expressed both by its symbol to denote its representation and by its connection to universal principles. Numbers have relationships with all things in nature, thus making them supremely powerful symbolic expressions.
At its most basic, numerology is the study of numbers and their influence in our lives, but there is so much more potential.
Numerology offers so many facets to understanding a single event. The esoteric meaning of numbers can be a real code-cracker of our life experience.

It is unlimited, yet disciplined. It sees the archetype, and brings it down to earth in some material form. It has big ideas, great plans, idealism, leadership, and enormous self-confidence. If not practical, the 22s waste their potential. Like the 11, the 22 can easily shrink from its own ambition, causing difficult interior pressures.
Both the 11 and the 22 experience the pressure-cooker effect very strongly, particularly at an early age. It must work toward the realization of goals that are larger than personal ambition. The 22 serves the world in a practical way.

Desire to change history, there is no limit to what you can do as you assume positions of great power and wealth. Your influence can be world-wide as you create structures that assist in the enlightenment of humankind. The greatest liability of your tremendous potential for achievement is that it will require your entire life. Even as a child, you had a vague sense of what you must do and were intimidated by the awesomeness of your task.
You have felt the intimations of your power, but these feelings have caused you to be paralyzed by doubt. The promise and reward of #22 is equaled only by the degree of difficulty and struggle necessary to realize its potential.
#22 offers the opportunity to tap into realms in which your day is expanded, your capacity to create and inspire multiplied, and your ability to perform lasting service to humankind extended beyond the normal limits of one life. You may turn away from the challenge of #22 and settle for the safety of limitations and practical considerations of the #4 (22 reduces to 4).

The 33 is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Teacher and also The Christ Consciousness. The 33 combines the 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others. The 33 in full force is extremely rare.
The number 33 only matters when found among the core numbers: The Life Path, Heart's Desire, Expression, Personality, Maturity number, or as an Essence cycle or Pinnacle cycle. In all other cases the 33 should be reduced to a 6.
The fact that the 33 is extra-ordinary demanding and rare can be seen symbolically in the methods of calculation.
For example, a 33 Life Path can happen only when each of the 3 units of the birth date (month/year/day) add to 11. Or when the year adds to 22 (in the 20th century there are only 7 years that add to 22: 1939, 48, 57, 66, 75, 84, and 93) and the month and day of birth combined total is 11. And finally, when the birth day is 22 and the month and year of birth total 11.
the Master, a very advanced being. A mission of self-sacrifice and service to others. Must live impersonally with a detached but caring attitude. If you do not choose to live at the level of #33, you may choose to live out the #6.

This may give you the feeling that you are constantly performing for others, and this can lead you to feeling that you are “not good enough”, which is far from the truth.
