# Numerology and the Meanings of Numbers

Numerology is a belief system that holds that numbers have special meanings and significance in our lives. It is based on the idea that the universe is made up of vibrational energy, and that each number corresponds to a specific frequency or vibration.

### How Numerology Works

In numerology, practitioners use a person’s name and birth date to create a numerology chart, also known as a numerology report or numerology reading. This chart is believed to reveal the individual’s personality, strengths, challenges, and life path.

To create a numerology chart, practitioners typically start by reducing a person’s name and birth date to a single digit. For example, the name “John Smith” might be reduced to the number 6 using the following formula:

```J = 1
O = 6
H = 8
N = 5
S = 1
M = 4
I = 9
T = 2
H = 8
```

The total for this example is 35, which is then reduced to a single digit by adding 3 and 5 to get 8.

The birth date is also reduced to a single digit using a similar process. For example, the birth date of January 1st, 1980 would be reduced to the number 1 using the following formula:

```1 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 20
2 + 0 = 2
```

Once the name and birth date have been reduced to single digits, the numerologist can then use these numbers to create a chart that reveals the individual’s numerology profile.

### The Meanings of Numbers in Numerology

Each number in numerology is believed to have its own unique meaning and significance. Here are some of the most commonly used numbers in numerology and their meanings:

```1: Leadership, independence, ambition, and determination
