Pythagoras: The Father of Western Numerology

For many Pythagoras is the father of mathematics, he actually has a theory named after him, but today we are not going to talk about mathematics, we are going to see him as the father of Western Numerology.

Pythagoras: The Father of Western Numerology

 History of Pythagoras

Pythagoras is often referred to as the first pure mathematician. He was born on the island of Samos, Greece in 569 BC.

In the 6th century BC. Little is known about the early part of his life. He traveled extensively throughout Southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East and probably lived and studied for some time in Egypt. He later established a school on Kroton, in Southern Italy, where he taught Mathematics, Astronomy, and Music.

As a teacher, he was respected and feared. Many people considered him dangerous. In an attempt to safeguard his school, his students were sworn to secrecy and were not allowed to write anything down.

He is most often associated with the theorem in his name(the Pythagoras theorem). Certainly, he is held in the highest regard as one of the preeminent mathematicians of all time.

However, it was his passion for learning, for truth, and for the discovery of grace and harmony in all aspects of life that sets him apart from other philosophers.

It is believed that Pythagoras lived to be almost a hundred years old. He died when his school was attacked and burned to the ground.

Pythagoras and Numerology

One of Pythagoras’ beliefs was that the essence of being is number. Thus, being relies on the stability of all things that create the universe.

Things like health relied on a stable proportional of elements, too much or too little of one thing causes an imbalance that makes a being unhealthy. Pythagoras viewed thinking as calculating with the ideal numbers.

When combined with the folk theories, the philosophy evolves into a belief that that knowledge of the essence of being can be found in the form of numbers.

If this takes a step further, one can say that because mathematics is an unseen essence, the essence of being is an unseen character that can be encountered by the study of mathematics.

That is it, this is a small part of the history of Pythagoras, the father of western numerology

 

Tapping Into the Taboo: Ancient Astrology Can Reveal so Much About You!

Astrology is much, more than daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes for your individual sun sign. It’s even more than the mysterious Chinese zodiac articles that you read on your favorite restaurant’s placemat.

Tapping Into the Taboo: Ancient Astrology Can Reveal so Much About You!

Astrology is actually a tool that’s been left behind for us all to decode and use to uncover the way that our soul truly communicates to us.

If you thought that was deep, it gets even deeper!

Astrology is the ancient language of the planets and stars. Why do you think the saying “as above, so below” is not only so popular but truthful?

By taking a moment to look up at the cosmos, we can learn a lot about ourselves on an individual level and about the world around us on a macro level.

We Weren’t The Only Ones to Discover The Magic That Our Galaxy Has to Offer Us
Astrology is very old. Like, really old.

Not only did our great grandparents have access to this information, but our great, great, great, great….you get the point!

Our ancestors actually relied heavily on this ancient science and treated it just as such rather than taking the “taboo” approach that had been developed the past few thousand years.

Across countless cultures all over the world, there are traces of astrology, birth charts, and how they used this ancient language to organize societies.

One common theme is revolving around the Sun.

If you learned anything in a science class it’s that our entire galaxy revolves around the sun. Don’t you think that it’s funny that all of our most successful ancient cultures revolve their calendars around the same blazing ball of light energy?

The Egyptians, the Mayans, the ancient Chinese…

The list goes on and on.

It’s also kind of interesting to think about the fact that you have three major signs or your “Big Three.” This includes your Sun sign (your soul sign), your moon sign (your innermost emotions), and your rising sign (or how you’re perceived in the world).

If you don’t even know a lick about astrology, you probably know your Sun sign and didn’t even realize it. That’s the zodiac sign that people know based on your birth date, but again, it gets deeper.

Your sun sign explains your soul’s purpose, which is why as you grow in age, you begin to step into your purpose…

Or, as your ancestors might like to say, rise like the sun.

Another “coincidence” might be that the word “sol” means sun and is pronounced like soul.

Coincidence? I think not…

So, the question is why wouldn’t you trust something that our great, great, great, great, great, family members relied on so heavily?

Applying Ancient Knowledge Is Much Simpler Than It Was Back In The Day

When you’re ready to dive into the mysteries of your own birth chart, all you have to do is rely on resources just like these…

They were called upon by only those in power to help make serious decisions when it came to agriculture, laws of the society, and even when it came to war.

Astrologers were a hot commodity because it tools days upon days to draw up charts and make the predictions they needed. The internet wasn’t accessible and resources just like ours were not as easily shared.

What is Numerology and How Does it Work?

Have you heard of Numerology? Do you always see the same number throughout your life? Have you found yourself drawn to particular numbers? Perhaps you want to learn more about numerology? Maybe you have absolutely no idea what numerology is?

I am going to discuss what numerology is, the history behind it, and how it works, as well as some interesting facts about the topic.

What numerology is about?

Numerology is any of many systems, traditions, or beliefs in a mystical or esoteric relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things.

Numerology and numerological divination were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics by modern scientists.

The term can also be used for those who, in the view of some observers, place excess faith in numerical patterns, even if those people don’t practice traditional numerology.

History of Numerology

Pythagoras and other philosophers of the time believed that because mathematical concepts were more “practical” (easier to regulate and classify) than physical ones, they had greater actuality.

St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote “Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.” Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.

In 325 A.D., following the First Council of Nicaea, departures from the beliefs of the state Church were classified as civil violations within the Roman Empire. Numerology had not found favor with the Christian authority of the day and was assigned to the field of unapproved beliefs along with astrology and other forms of divination and “magic.

Despite this religious purging, the spiritual significance assigned to the heretofore “sacred” numbers had not disappeared; several numbers, such as the “Jesus number” have been commented and analyzed by Dorotheus of Gaza and numerology still is used at least in conservative Greek Orthodox circles.

An early example of the influence of numerology in English literature is Sir Thomas Browne’s 1658 Discourse The Garden of Cyrus. In it, the author whimsically indulges in Pythagorean numerology to demonstrate that the number five and the related Quincunx pattern can be found throughout the arts, in design, and in nature – particularly botany.

Modern Numerology

Modern numerology has various antecedents. Ruth A. Drayer’s book, Numerology, The Power in Numbers (Square One Publishers) says that around the turn of the century (from 1800 to 1900 A.D.) Mrs. L. Dow Balliett combined Pythagoras’ work with Biblical reference.

Then on Oct 23, 1972, Balliett’s student, Dr. Juno Jordan, changed Numerology further and helped it to become the system known today under the title “Pythagorean”.

Modern numerology often contains aspects of a variety of ancient cultures and teachers, including Babylonia, Pythagoras and his followers (Greece, 6th century B.C.), astrological philosophy from Hellenistic Alexandria, early Christian mysticism, the occultism of the early Gnostics, the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah, The Indian Vedas, the Chinese “Circle of the Dead”, and the Egyptian “Book of the Master of the Secret House” (Ritual of the Dead).

How does numerology work?

Essentially, numerology deals with the nine major planets – Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Saturn and Mars, and their characteristic features.

Each one of these nine planets is assigned numbers ranging from 1 to 9, depending on which planet vibrates to which number. These nine planets influence human life in a substantial way.

The planetary positions at the time of a person’s birth ascertain the personality of that individual. A primary and a secondary planet govern each individual at the time of birth. Hence, after birth, the individual starts radiating the vibrations of that number or planet by which he/she is governed.

According to the numerological philosophy, only a name and number rule a person. He will encounter opportunities and difficulties in life according to the influence of numbers in his lives.

When this number is in harmony with the number of any other person, he will experience a harmonious relationship with that person.

All the characteristics of this individual, ranging from his thinking, reasoning, emotions, philosophy, desires, aversions, health, career, etc. are all dominated by these numbers or their corresponding planets.
