# WHAT IS NUMEROLOGY?

Numerology is the study of numbers, their meanings and the relevance that they can have on your life.
Your date of birth and full birth name are used when calculating your numerology chart to ensure it is unique to you.
When we look at numerology we mainly focus on the numbers 1-9 and reduce all numbers down to these.
However the exception to this is the 3 Master numbers in numerology that we don’t reduce down to a single digit these are 11, 22 and 33. Having a master number within your numerology chart is quite rare and i will go in to further detail on this in the ‘Master Numbers’ section of this post.

#### Reducing down numbers to calculate your life path

So for example, if your birthdate is 5/6/1975 we would add these numbers together 5+6+1+9+7+5 = 33, leaving us with a master number 33 which we don’t reduce down, however, if your birth date is 4/4/1972 we would calculate your numbers 4+4+1+9+7+2 = 27. As 27 is not a master number we would then reduce down 27 so 2+7 = 9.
The numbers from your date of birth are very significant in numerology as they determine your life path number, so from the examples above you can see we have a life path 33 and a life path 27/9.

#### Calculating Universal and Personal years

Using the numbers 1-9 we can also determine what the current year will have in store for us on a personal and universal level.
lets take a look at the current year 2021, here we would add the digits 2+0+2+1 = 5, so this would mean that the year 2021 is considered to be a 5 universal year. Knowing this can also help you to discover your own personal year. To work out your personal year you take your day and month of birth and add this to 5 (universal year), so as an example 5+6+5 = 16, next we reduce the 16, 1+6 = 7 so this would be a personal 7 year.

#### Universal year 5

2021 is a 5 universal year that means it’s a year for change, adventure, freedom and answers.
This year you could find yourself wanting to try/study new things or maybe you will be planning your next big adventure. This year is about freedom and finding answers to the questions that you may have had for a while.
This year could also be full of surprises and revelations!
