The number game now has a new meaning, to be Number 1 you have to now get the numbers in your Name right. Did you know that each alphabet of your name has a certain value, and the sum total of this should be in harmony with your date of birth to have a smoother sailing in life? This necessitates one to know more about the study of numbers. Study of numbers is best known as numerology. Like Astrology, numerology too works on the principal of the impact that the planets have on human lives. The biggest proof of the fact that numbers govern our lives is that two children born to the same set of parents and having the same upbringing, but with different dates of birth have vastly different characters, which are shaped according to the date on which that individual was born, and also the name he is known by. Coming to the efficacy of numerology, this branch of knowledge could be termed as a science based on the fact that each and every alphabet has got numerical value and vibrations and one cannot see certain things, but can perceive this. Numerology categorises people on the basis of name and date of birth. The sum total of the name of a person should be in tandem with the date of birth he or she carries. The sum total denotes whether that number is favourable or not for the person. Since date of birth cannot be changed, adding or deleting of alphabets is the only way to achieve harmony among these 2 sets of numbers. Once changed, new spelling could invoke better vibrations. The other important factor to be borne in mind is the fact thatplanets have influence over the life of a person. A number denotes each planet too. i.e the Sun by No.1, the Moon by No.2, Jupiter by No.3, Uranus by No.4, Mercury by No.5, Venus by No.6, Neptune by No.7, Saturn by No.8 and Mars by No.9. Uranus (4), Saturn (8) and Mars (9) are most troubling and disruptive planets. Unlucky numbers for 4 and 8 persons are ironically their own numbers. To bring their name on more positive number, the name, surname or middle name has to be altered. “ Numbers and names alone cannot ensure success, we have to work hard”. Success is a blend of good fortune and hard work.
