Term: Numerology

DEFINITIONs:
1.  Modern numerology assigns three numbers to a personal name: one for the vowels, one for the consonants, and one combining both. A birth date is also reduced to a single number in numerology. These four resultant numbers are then interpreted in light of the symbolic meanings for the numbers 1 through 9.
SOURCE:  Truth about Numerology, David Allen Hulse
2.  An ancient system with many variations that assigns numbers to each letter of the alphabet. The most common Western system sets up a grid with the numbers 1-9 at the top and the English alphabet below. Thus, A=1, B=2, C=3 up to I=9, then J=1, K=2, etc. In this way any word can become a number and numbers can be manipulated in a variety of ways. The resulting number is then interpreted according to predetermined meanings. This is most often used with the birth name, but can also be used with other words, numbers, and dates.

3.  The study of the psychic significance of numbers, often based on numerical values assigned to the letters of a name or to the birthdate. In-depth numerology can be studied in the Kabbalah.
