Numbers and Numerology333 have been with us since ancient times and have fascinated people from every Era and walk of life. But what do they do for us? For some, numbers provide direction in their lives. They are mysterious and at the same time thrilling. Mathematicians use numbers to calculate all the infinite possibilities of our world.

Numbers form patterns that can be distinguished and interpreted to have a general meaning. It is these meanings that we rely on for direction. Each number has a specific meaning and place in the universe. These meanings can be unique to each individual and as varied as the interpreter of them. While there are general interpretations there are also very specific ones for each number and they can range in meaning and magnitude.
The numbers that are generally interpreted are 1 through 9. Zero has no value in numerology, though some have used even this number for some types of interpretations. All the numbers are important but for the simple sake of mathematics these are the base numbers that are used most frequently.
Numbers are calculated and interpreted to give us a sense of direction in our lives and to help us focus on our positive traits while downplaying the negative aspects of ourselves. It can be said that numerology is a type of self-help for those individuals looking for answers about their personal lives.
