It’s all about the numbers…. According to my accountant that is, but it turns out he was talking about more than just accounts!!
Pythagoras and other philosophers of the time believed that because mathematical concepts were more “practical” (easier to regulate and classify) than physical ones, they had greater actuality. St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote “Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.” Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.
You see, when you were born, your parents gave you a name, but the universe gave you a number. Pythagoras identified an equation for working out your number and in turn how that fits into your life purpose.
Each number corresponds with a different quality, issue and challenge to deal with:
1: Creativity and Confidence
2: Co-operation and Balance
3: Expression and Sensitivity
4: Stability and Process
5: Freedom and Discipline
6: Vision and Acceptance
7: Trust and Openness
8: Abundance and Power
9: Integrity and Wisdom
0: Inner Gifts
Whilst we can all relate to the above numbers and life challenges, some are more specific and relevant to us individually.
The primary digits of our particular birth number represents special potential and special challenges on our life path, showing us where to dig in order to find our own treasure and fulfil our life purpose.
Our birth number points to issues and potential, quite often it is necessary to overcome our issues in order to fulfil our potential.
Numbers are very influential in the Tarot, in the major arcana, the cards are numbered 0-21 and the minor cards are all numbered 1-9.
What is often very interesting is that during a tarot reading several cards will pop up that hold the quierents birth number on them!
