Numerology is the belief that numbers have a direct correlation with all nature and divinity. This is an in-depth and complex topic, but the beginning stages of learning numerology are achieved by mastering the basic arithmetic while gaining an understanding of each vibration.  ## Calculations

Regardless of if you’re doing name calculations or date calculations, you’ll want to be familiar with the letter to number correlation chart. It will be an important tool to have on hand while learning numerology in order to make calculations quickly and accurately.

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

You’ll use the above table when evaluating the vibration of a birth name. Each equation will look something like this:

For example: Alley May Gibson

A = 1                R = 9                G = 7

L = 3                O = 6               O = 6

L = 3                S = 1                R = 9

E = 5                E = 5                D = 4

Y = 7                                       E = 5

R = 9

Alley (1+3+3+5+7) = 19 (two digit rule) 1+9 = 10 = 1+0 = 1

Rose (9+6+1+5) = 21 (two digit rule) 2+1 = 3

Gorder (7+6+9+4+5+9= 40 (two digit rule) 4+ 0 = 4

Vibration 8 = 1 (First) + 3 (Middle) + 4 (Last)

Life path numbers (date of birth calculations) will be evaluated in the same manner as a name, except without having to find the letter to number correlation.
