After a while you find yourself calculating numbers of loved ones birth dates, house numbers, and even number plates. You don’t have to be Einstein, or a mathematician to be able to use numerology, it can be as simple or as in-depth as you wish.

We are going to give you a simple run down of the basics, a beginner’s guide if you like. We like to keep things simple here at Star Tarot.

After doing some research on this subject, we have found that Numerology began with the rather clever chap, Pythagorus. He, and other philosophers of the time believed that because mathematical concepts were more "practical" (easier to regulate and classify) than physical ones, they were more reliable. St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) has said, Numbers are the Universal language offered by gods to humans as confirmation of the truth. He believed, like Pythagoras, that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the individual to discover the secrets of these relationships, or have them channelled by spirit.

Ok, so enough of the history, let’s get down to actually learning how to use this wonderful tool, we promise to keep things easy.

Regardless if you’re doing names, or dates to calculate numbers, you will need to use the letter to number correlation chart, like the one below.


You’ll use the above table when calculating a birth name. Each calculation will look something like this:

Stella Rose Star

S = 1          R = 9          S = 1
T = 2          O = 6         T = 2
E = 5          S = 1          A = 1
L = 3          E = 5          R = 9
L = 3
A = 1

Stella (1+2+5+3+3+1) = 15 (two digit rule) 1+5 = 15 = 1+5 = 6

Rose (9+6+1+5) = 21 (two digit rule) 2+1 = 3

Star (1+2+1+9) = (two digit rule) 1+3 = 4

Vibration 4 = 6 (First) + 3 (Middle) + 4 (Last) = 13 (Two digit rule) 1+3= 4

There are 11 total vibrations. One to nine, and 11 and 22. Each is comprised of different characteristics, and their qualities can be under or over-balanced.

Below is short breakdown of each one.

People with the life number one are the leaders of the bunch. They are often the most independent and determined vibrations in numerology.

Twos are sensitive and diplomatic. They are known as the peacemaker.

Emotion comes easy to people with vibration number three. Threes are masters of expression. They’re happy, creative and imaginative.

Fours are the most practical of the group. They believe that goals are only achieved through hard work and determination. They’re organized and efficient.

The word most associated with fives is freedom. This vibration will thrive in a flexible environment where they’re allowed to spread their wings.

A six reminds us about love and humility. They are domesticated and harmonious.

Sevens search for truth and understanding. They are analytical perfectionist.

Authoritative eights are powerful, goal-driven and skillful. They’re often in positions of great power.
