Numerology is a belief system that ascribes mystical and symbolic meanings to numbers and their influence on people's lives. It's based on the idea that numbers hold inherent vibrational frequencies and correspondences with certain qualities or characteristics. In numerology, a person's birth date, name, or other significant numbers are often analyzed to reveal insights into their personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, and life paths.

Numerology typically involves assigning numerical values to letters of the alphabet and then calculating various combinations and sums to derive insights. For example, the popular Life Path Number is calculated from a person's birthdate and is believed to represent their overall life purpose and direction.

Like astrology, numerology is not supported by empirical scientific evidence and is considered a pseudoscience. However, many people find value in numerology as a tool for self-reflection, personal growth, and even decision-making. It's often used alongside other spiritual or self-help practices.
