Numerical Values

Assigning numerical values in numerology is a process where letters of the alphabet are assigned specific numerical values based on a numerical system. This allows words, names, or phrases to be converted into numbers, which can then be analyzed and interpreted in numerological calculations.

Different numerological systems may use different assignments of values to letters. Here are few of the numerical systems:

  • Pythagorean method
  • Chaldean method
  • Latin alphabet systems
  • Agrippan method
  • English Qaballa
  • Chinese Numerology
  • Kabbalistic Numerology
  • Tamil Numerology

Pythagorean method

The Pythagorean system is derived from the teachings of the ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras. In this system, the letters of the alphabet are assigned values from 1 to 9, with the numbers 11, 22, and 33 also being recognized as master numbers in some cases. The assignment of values is as follows:

1: A, J, S

2: B, K, T

3: C, L, U

4: D, M, V5: E, N, W

6: F, O, X

7: G, P, Y

8: H, Q, Z

9: I, R

To use this system, you would convert each letter in a word, name, or phrase into its corresponding numerical value and then calculate the sum of those values. For example, let's take the name "John" as an example:

J = 1

O = 6

H = 8

N = 5

Adding these values together, we get 1 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 20. Since 20 is a two-digit number, we can further reduce it by adding its digits together: 2 + 0 = 2. Therefore, the numerical value for the name "John" in the Pythagorean system is 2.

By assigning numerical values to names, you can then use these numbers in various numerological calculations to gain insights into personality traits, compatibility, or other aspects associated with those names.

Chaldean method

Chaldean system is another popular method originating from ancient Babylon, the Chaldean system associates different numerical values to letters compared to the Pythagorean system. It places emphasis on the sounds and vibrations of letters, and some values differ from their Pythagorean counterparts.

Here is the letter-to-number correspondence in the Chaldean system:

1: A, I, J, Q, Y

2: B, K, R

3: C, G, L, S

4: D, M, T

5: E, H, N, X

6: U, V, W

7: O, Z

8: F, P

Each letter is believed to carry a specific vibration or energy that influences the interpretation of names, words, and phrases. The numerical values assigned to the letters are used in calculations and interpretations within Chaldean numerology.

Chaldean numerology is often associated with deeper mystical and spiritual aspects. It explores the hidden meanings and influences behind names, words, and dates. It can be used to gain insights into personality traits, career paths, relationships, and other areas of life based on the numerical vibrations associated with the letters.
