Date Calculations

Numerology is based both on name calculations and on date calculations. Date calculations are much easier to do than name calculations since they are already in number format and don’t need to be translated from letters into numbers.

Many of the calculations in both Pythagorean and Chaldean numerology are based on your birth date. This is the month, day and year that you were born. You must use the full year that you were born and not the common abbreviation (ie. 1968 and not just ’68).

For our example, we will return again to our fictional character John Alan Smith. Let’s say John was born on August 12, 1968. His birthdate then would be 8/12/1968.

To reduce his birthdate to a single digit, we would do the following calculations:

8/12/1968 – 8+1+2+1+9+6+8 = 35

Again, because we can’t have a double digit number, we reduce this number further by adding together the two parts of the number 35:

35 = 3+5 = 8.

The whole equation would look like:

8/12/1968 = 8+1+2+1+9+6+8 = 35 = 3+5 = 8
