Numerology
Numerology is the study of the meanings behind numbers, and their special associations. There are many sources for a student to use, and there is more than one system available. However in reference materials, the number 6 for example, is associated with Venus and with love. To many magicians, however, the number 6 is associated with money. This really isn't totally opposite when you consider that Venus loves luxury, and luxury is expensive. But as in most things, you will have to decide for yourself what the number means for you and how to interpret it.
Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan. Each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. These numbers show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie. Experts in numerology use the numbers to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life. Numerology is used to decide when to invest, when to marry, when to travel, when to change jobs, or relocate. I'm not claiming that this website is going to make an expert of you so that all these questions can be answered, but we can at least get you on the way.
The first question I asked when numerology was exposed to me was why does it work. The second question was how does it work. Well, if we could answer these questions it wouldn't be an occult study, would it? Is it a God force? Do numbers have vibrations or something like that? Who knows? Just be objective and give it a try.
Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician who live from 569470 B.C., is said by many to be the originator of much of what we call numerology today. The actual origins of numerology predate Pythagoras, the most popular being the very old Hebrew Kabbala.
 Introduction to Using Numerology
Numerology is perhaps the easiest of the occult arts to understand and use. All you need is the birth date and the complete name of an individual to unlock all of the secrets that the numbers hold.
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.Letters and numbers, you will learn, are always one and the same. Here is a chart of the values assigned to each of the letters in the English alphabet:

This article is simply designed to help you determine the number most correctly asscociated with the spell working you have in mind. It is best to try to be consistent with the numbers for your spell; to pick one number and try to keep all the correspondences working within it.

Other numbers of course are the "compund" numbers, which are a combination of the numbers 1 through 9. Whenever you have a compound number, you can add the digits together to reduce it down to a single digit number and thereby get its essence. This can come in handy, especially when figuring times to do circle. For example, if you plan to use 7's in your ritual, but you know that there's no way you can start the ritual at 7pm, then you can choose to use instead a number that will add up to 7, like 9:25, where 9 + 2 + 5 equals 16 and 1 + 6 equals 7.
The number of herbs, or candles, or incenses, or ingredients in your spell should also be figured numerologically to be in tune with what you want to accomplish. Let's say you are looking for a new home, well, you can go with the number 1 for newness. Or you can go with the number 4 for stability, or 8 if it's a home you want to keep for a long time. Then you would choose to use that number of candles, that number of herbs in the incense, that number of the hour of the ritual, that number of minutes in your ritual bath, etc. It's a good idea to stick with one main number, and not to try to combine more than one number in one spell. As you will see as you get into the planetary hours, and the colors, and all the other attributes you have to choose from, it can get confusing enough on it's own, without adding to it by picking more than one number!
Consistency is the key to good spellcrafting, pick one number for one idea and work with that. It will increase your focus, and keep you on track to your goal.
