Merely flipping through sun signs to check out your horoscope for the day or week is just scratching the surface of astrology which has evolved into a nuanced, if slightly complicated, practice after centuries of study and deliberation in this stream. Other than just knowing what personality traits you might be attracted to in another person, astrology also deep dives into facets like gemstones, numbers and colours that affect individuals. Do you know even your zodiac sign has a lucky number? Read on to find out yours.
How are astrology and numerology related?
Ancient civilisations have looked at the stars, planets and constellations and taken inspiration from the celestial bodies to facilitate life on Earth. The predictions for carrying on day-to-day activities like farming or trade were impacted by astrology. By the 1900s, humans began using numbers along with planetary positions to get a more accurate analysis. Hence, it is safe to say that astrology and numerology have always been closely related.
There are different streams of numerological practices in use, such as the Pythagorean theory, the Chaldean system, Kabbalah numerology and the Western technique, which is used in modern times. Both Western and Vedic astrology uses a birth chart of individuals drawn by calculating their exact birth time, place and year and dividing it into different houses. The planetary position in the birth chart dictates the individual’s course of life. Numerology is used to further predict their future in different areas of life, and this gives a bit more accurate estimation of how a person’s life will be in terms of career, money, travel, love or family.
Every number is associated with positive and negative vibrations which are termed lucky or unlucky for a person. Broadly speaking, all zodiacs have lucky numbers that help an individual align with the constructive and positive forces of the universe, leading to a healthy and prosperous life.
