Numerology is the easiest of the occult arts and is easy to understand and use. All that is needed is the birth date and the complete name
of an individual to unlock all of the secrets that the numbers hold and then the future course of the individual can be derived from it.
There are eleven numbers used in constructing Numerology charts. These numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22. Larger numbers that
occur from adding the numbers in the complete birth date or from the values
assigned to each name, are reduced by adding the digits together until the sum achieved is one of the core numbers. Merely add the components
of the larger number together (repeatedly, if necessary) until a single digit (or the "master" numbers 11 or 22) results. Each of these number
represents different characteristics and expressions. 
Master number are the only exception to rule of reducing to the single digit.
The master numbers 11 and 22 are intensified versions of the single digit number they replace (2 and 4). These numbers suggest a potential
for a high degree of learning and/or achievement very often in a more stressful environment. In many individuals, the master numbers operate
at a much more tangible or practical level, becoming essentially the same as the single digit parallel.
The
first consideration of numerology is often the date of birth. This date, expressed numerically, as mm/dd/yyyy, is used to determine what is
called the Lifepath Number and a variety of other factors in the numerology reading.
