Numerology is the universal language of numbers, and each of us was born with a set of numbers unique to us. These numbers unlock the door to the depths of our personality and reveal the way we interact with others, lessons we've yet to learn, opportunities we'll be given and challenges we'll face at specific periods of our lives -- or throughout life as a whole.

Numerology is any belief in the divine, mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. It is also the study of the numerical value of the letters in words, names and ideas. It is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.

Each number is associated with a planet, helping you know your characteristics
