### What is numerology?

Numerology is the study of the Numbers related to a person's date of birth. According to numerology, each number has specific characteristics. These characteristics reflect in the personality, behavior and life of the the person related to the number.

Numerology has a long history. Although the concept goes back to the ancient cultures, a deep study of numbers and their relationship to persons was done by Pythagoras, a Greek mathematician and philosopher of 6th Century B.C.E. In modern era, numerology is a well established phenomena.

There are different methods of interpreting the numbers in numerology. Most famous method is  interpreting individual number of date of birth of a person. Another popular method is Name Numerology, in which every letter of a person's name has a numerical value, total of all the numbers is converted to a single number and then the characteristics are interpreted.

### How to Calculate Your Birth Number?

Your Birth Number is the most important number in numerology. According to numerology, your date of birth is most influential number in your life.

It is very easy to calculate your Birth Number. If you were born on any date 1 to 9 of any month, your date of birth is your Birth Number. For example, if you were born on 1st day of any month, your Birth Number is 1, and if you were born on 2nd, your Birth Number is 2.

Now, if you were born between 10 to 31 of any month, you have to add the two digits to get a single number, and that single number is your Birth Number. For examples, if you were born on 10th of any month, add 1 and 0. As the total is 1, your Birth Number is 1. If you were born on 31, your Birth Number is 4 as the total of 3 and 1 is 4.

Date of Birth    Birth Number
1, 10, 19, 28               1
2, 11, 20, 29               2
3, 12, 21, 30               3
4, 13, 22, 31               4
5, 14, 23                     5
6, 15, 24                     6
7, 16, 25                     7
8, 17, 26                     8
9, 18, 27                     9

However, if you were born on any double digit date, remember that the double digit number is also important in interpreting the characteristics. For example, if you were born on 28th of any month, your Birth Number is 1. So you are influenced by the characteristics of both number 1 and number 28.
