Tarot for the 21st Century!
I moved this to the Discussion Area
by Mary Brown
Two questions about numerology which have plagued me every time I've tried to study it --
1. So many things I've read about numerology say that Pythagorean is used more in the West than Chaldean because it is easier to learn and remember, but that many feel that Chaldean is more accurate... this does confuse me a bit -- like why is Chaldean perceived to be more accurate and does that in some way lessen the accuracy of Pythagorean -- I'm really interested in numerology but I want to start off on the right foot...
2. Also, the idea of calculating your personal number based on the name you were born with... um, awkwardly that has presented a problem for me as I don't know the exact name I was born with as my mother married when I was very young and her husband adopted me - so my birth certificate has his last name on it and my mother has passed since so it feels too late to ask now... couldn't I just use my first and middle name since that hasn't changed throughout my life - or could I go by my adopted last name since that's stuck with me most of my life? Or should I now use my married name? My birth parents never married and I have no memory of my biological father who left when I was 2... so there's no one for me to ask whether or not his name or my mother's maiden name was originally on my birth certificate... any suggestions?

I was exactly like that Susan and I started to look deeper at things I have always had a fascination with numbers eversince I started looking into tarot so I will tell you the Book that I got an all will agree that the book is a Must Tarot plain and simple by Anthony Lewis that book for the fundamentals of tarot is my bible, I also got the tarot deck before I got the book I must add The Robin Wood Tarot Deck and the book is based around that deck the explinations are great in there there is advise on the celtic cross reading and some plain and simple 5 card reads that is also explained also Lewis talks about Numerology to help the beginer in his/her quest frrom there I got a book on Numerology By Hanz Decos and what a read that is it is quite indepth but Lewis bolsters all what is said in there here is a web site to look at regarding Numerology
http://www.decoz.com/numerology-Course-01.htm a brilliant start her for you hope you Don't mind Dax if yoou do let me know...
And since then I have taken my numerology a bit further by looking at the way that it interrelates to tarot and wow what a discovery it is it bolsters a reading so mutch by this I mean it adds a different dimention to tarot altogether as well if you look into the elements of tarot as well and to throw the spanner in the works I also do card counting that in its self is quite a complex process but when you learn all these different ways of looking into tarot realy develops a ok reading in to a fantastic reading...
Hope that helps Colin

Your life path number is added with your date of birth. For example, my date of birth is 7th November 1956 so I add 7 + 1+1+ 1+9+5+6= 30 and 3+0 = 3
Number 3 is the Tarot Card The Empress, all keywords to do with the Empress is likely to happen to me. Also 12 (The Hanged Man Tarot Card) which adds up to 3.
On top of that the 3rd House in my natal chart which rules communications seems to play a big role in my life and House 12 seems to be significant too. I do like to have space to be alone (House 12 rules solitude)

Mary looking at what you have said you can do it 1 of 2 different ways you can use the name that you are know as by now Like Mary Browm or you can use the name for a more accurate read by you mothers name and your sir name so I feel Mary that I would use the name that you have been known as for x ammount of years and that will calculate the different field like the heartst desire and so on I could talk on this all night I love it it is so diverse the only thing is I can do all what is said and get what is said on the name and so on but it is massifly diverse a very tough subject to get in so thats why I keep it simmple with tarot unless I want to calculate all on agiven name and that also helps you look find things about a reading for a person that also can make a reading a fantastic read if you can just quickly calculate the year of a person by their age easily done and that can straight away start a reading in agood way for example my year number 9 you could go into the retorics of that year and how it should progress and tarot should endorse that...
I know this can be very confusing, but it 's very simple really. Numbers surround us, our lives are filled with them. They have influence. Everything from our social security number and phone number to our birth date and the numbers in our name, the street we live on, and so on....
These numbers change because the "things" change in our lives. The business name you choose, the name of your baby, the street you move to, you change phone numbers, etc. The same is true of our names. Our names change, we shorten our first name, start going by a nick-name, get married and change our last name and so on....
It's true, the name we were born with has an effect and stays with us our whole lives. It is usually the name that is on our original birth certificate. Mary, you may be able to acquire this, but if not, that's okay. Many people don't have their birth names. Many Numerologists will insist on this name and that this is what you have to go by, but that's simply not true, and the Numerology of our lives is MUCH more complicated than this.
Just as our Sun Signs are only one piece of the Astrological puzzle, your birth name is only one piece of the Numerological puzzle. You gave various name scenarios, but what's most important is "the name you go by" now. So use the name YOU use most. For instance, if your birth name is Kimberly Ann Smith, but you got married to Jason Anderson, you may be "using" or "going by" Kim Anderson.
The name you "go by" is actually more important to you now. Plus, you must take in account your Life Path Number, Attitude Number, Soul Number, Personality Number, and so on...
As far as different systems, it's all in WHO's using them and what for exactly. Chaldean is more "accurate", how? The Pythagorean system has been around for thousands of years and is used by many very "accurate" Numerologists. I don't know enough about Chaldean to say, but I DO know about the Pythagorean system. The proof for me is how the Pythagorean system lines up perfectly with the Tarot.
