If you believe in numerology of course it means something. But which numerological method do you follow?
Many people think there is only one pattern of number analysis. In actuality there are several. Mathematics is the only language shared by all humans regardless of culture, religion, or gender. Many of the ancient cultures: Babylon, China, Egypt, India,and Japan were using forms of numerology long before the Greeks and Romans. Over the centuries each culture has created its own method of analyzing numbers. While there are many of these, several methods have risen to the top so to speak, as the most common methods or practices. These are: Chaldean, Chinese, Indian Vedic, Kabbalah, Pythagorean (also called Western) and Shamanistic (which can vary from Germanic, Celtic, Indo-European or the Americas).
Numerology is the study of the divine or mystical relationship between a count or measurement and life. It has many systems, traditions and beliefs. To learn more about read The Bare Minimum Basics of Numerology and begin your own research.
The method I’m most familiar with is the Shamanistic system. Here we’d add each number and continue adding until the sum is a single digit. Once again as with all things that relate this to that meaning, what we call the correspondence, what that digit means or represents depends on the method you follow.
But let’s take a look at today from the Shamanistic perspective.
The number we want to look at in this approach would be – Six:
6 – The number of family or community, coming together in harmony, working together and being in balance together as a whole.
This number is associated with Venus.
It represents Divine Harmony.
Numbers like the Tarot have reverse meaning or what I like to call direction. All things have a positive or negative flow of energy. Think of a battery, it has a positive and negative side and both are needed for the battery to work. In the case of numbers, this isn’t a representation of good vs bad, but rather of direct or opposite flow of energy.
In the case of the number 6 (six), the opposite or Negative energy direction would indicate coming apart, tension, being out of balance, or adversarial. Peace or war would put it in short and simple terms.
The thing with most numerological methods and analyzing dates, you can’t leave off the century. So while that was an interesting and intriguing look at today; what about the real date: 10.11.2012?
The number we look at in this approach would be – Eight:
8 – The number of infinity, the infinite possibilities, breaking barriers.
This number is associated with Pluto.
It represents our ability to strive for things, be they personal, family, professional.
In this case the number 8 (eight) could represent struggle, facing barriers, an inability to move in the direction one feels they want to go. It can represent the desire vs the need. You want this, but do you really need it?
Whatever you think about numbers and their representation in life. It’s still interesting to take a look at them and the role they play even when we’re not looking.
