Pythagorean numerology is the system evolved from the original developed by Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras (580/572 BC – 500/490 BC).
The evolution of this western form of numerology now includes elements from Arabian sources, Druid, Phoenician and Egyptian studies. Pythagorean numerology uses the numbers 1 to 9 (unlike Chaldean numerology which often stops at 8 ) and frequently reduces numbers down to a single digit (for example, the number 23 becomes 5 as 2+3=5).
Pythagorean numerology states that the universe and life is ordered. People may influence their fate (therefore pythagorean numerology can both predict the future and not predict the future at the same time) but there is a sustainable structure to the future.
Two common numerological studies involve translating a name to numbers (changing your name is therefore significant in numerology) and understanding the date of birth.
In Pythagorean numerology numbers are assigned in the following way:
- 1 = A, J and S
- 2 = B, K and T
- 3 = C, L and U
- 4 = D, M and V
- 5 = E, N and W
- 6 = F, O and X
- 7 = G, P and Y
- 8 = H, Q and Z
- 9 = I and R

How do you use numerology? Do always reduce to a single number?
