The only person who is responsible for the fast spread of numerology during the last century is William John Warner, better known as Cheiro who also went by the name of Count Louis Hamon. One of the most famous and colorful occult figures of the early Twentieth Century, Cheiro was a clairvoyant who used palmistry, astrology, and numerology to make accurate predictions and inspired hundreds of numerologists and astrologers world over. He was the inspiration yesterday, is the inspiration today and will be the inspiration tomorrow.

Born at 10:53 LMT on November 1, 1866 in Dublin, Ireland, Cheiro had a wide following of famous European and American clients like Mark Twain, Sarah Bernhardt, Mata Hari, Oscar Wilde, Grover Cleveland, Thomas Edison, the Prince of Wales, General Kitchener, William Gladstone, and Joseph Chamberlain. He spent his final years in Hollywood working for movies before his death on October 8, 1936.

Cheiro's Description of Number Power


This is an ominous number to occultists. It gives warning of hidden dangers, trial, and treachery from other. It has a symbol of “a Clenched Hand,” and “a Lion Muzzled,” and of a person who will have great difficulties to contend against.


The Symbolism of this number is suffering and anxiety of mind. It is also indicated as” the Sacrifice” or “the Victim” and generally foreshadows one being sacrificed for the plans or intrigues of others.


This is a number indicating change of plans, place, and such-like, and is not unfortunate, as is generally supposed. In some of the ancient writings it is said, “He who understands the number 13 will be given power and dominion.” It is Symbolized by the picture of ” a Skeleton” or “Death,” with a scythe reaping down men, in a field of new-grown grass where young faces and heads appear copping up on every side. it is a number of upheaval and  destruction. It is a Symbol of “Power” which, if wrongly used, will wreak destruction upon itself. It is a number of warnings of the unknown or unexpected, if it becomes a” compound” number in one’s calculations.


This is number of movement, combination of people and things, and danger from natural forces, such as tempests, water, air, or fire. This number is fortunate for dealings with money, speculation, and changes in business, but there is always a strong element of risk and danger attached to it, but generally owing to the actions and foolhardiness of others. If this number comes out in calculations of future events the person should be warned to act with caution and prudence.


This is number of occult significance, of magic and mystery; but as a rule it does not represent the higher side of occultism, its meaning being that the persons represented by it will use every art of magic they can to carry out their purpose. If associated with a good or fortunate single number, it can be very lucky and powerful, but if associated with one of the peculiar numbers, such as a 4 or an 8, the person it represents will not scruple to use any sort of art, or even “black magic,” to gain what he or she desires. It is peculiarly associated with “good talkers”, often with eloquence, gifts of Music and Art and a dramatic personality, combined with a certain voluptuous temperament and strong personal magnetism. For obtaining money, gifts, and favours from others it is a fortunate number.


This number has a most peculiar occult symbolism. It is picture of a Tower Struck by Lightning, from which a man is falling with a Crown on his head.” It is also called “the Shattered Citadel.”It gives warning of some strange fatality awaiting one, also danger of accidents and defeat of one’s plans. It appears as a “compound” number relating to the future, it is a warning sign that should be carefully noted and plans made in advance in the endeavour to avert its fatalistic tendency.


This is a highly spiritual number, and is expressed in symbolism by the 8-pointed Star of Venus: a symbol of “Peace and Love”. It is also called “the Star of the Magi” and expresses that the person it represents has risen superior in spirit to the trials and difficulties of his life or his career. It is considered a “number of immortality” and that the person’s name “lives after him.” It is a fortunate number if it works out in relation to future events, provided it is not associated with the single numbers of fours and eights.


This number has a difficult symbolism to translate. It is pictured as “a rayed moon from which drops of blood are falling; a wolf and hungry dog are seen below catching the falling drops of blood in their opened mouths, while still lower a crab is seen hastening to join them.” It is symbolic of materialism striving to destroy the spiritual side of the nature. It generally associates a person with bitter quarrels, even family ones, also with war, social upheavals, revolutions and in some cases it indicates making money and position through wars or by wars. It is, however, a warning of treachery, deception by others, also danger from the elements, such as storms, danger from water, fires and explosions. When this “compound” number appears in working out dates in advance such a date should be taken with a great amount of care, caution, and circumspection.


This number is regarded as fortunate and extremely favourable. It is symbolized as “the Sun” and is called “the Prince of Heaven.” It is a number promising happiness, success, esteem and honour, and promises success in one’s plans for the future.


This number is called “the Awakening”; also “the Judgment.” It is symbolized by the figure of a winged angel sounding a trumpet, while from below, a man, a woman, and a child are seen rising from a tomb with their hands clasped in prayer. This number has a peculiar interpretation: the awakening of new purpose, new plans, new ambitions, the call to action but for some great purpose, cause or duty. It is not a material number and consequently is a doubtful one as far as worldly success is concerned. If used in relation to a future event, it denotes delays, hindrances to one’s plans, which can only be conquered thorough the development of the spiritual side of the nature.


This number is symbolized by the picture of “the Universe,” and it is also called “the Crown of the Magi.” It is a number of advancement, honours, elevation in life, and general success. It means victory after a long fight, for “the Crown of the Magi” is only gained after long initiation and tests of determination. It is a fortunate number of promise, if it appears in any connection with future events.


This number is symbolized by “a Good Man blinded by the folly of others, with a knapsack on his back full of Errors.” In this picture he appears to offer no defence against a ferocious tiger, which is attacking him. It is a warning number of illusion and delusion, a good person who lives in a fool’s paradise; a dreamer of dreams who awakens only when surrounded by danger. It is also a number of false judgment owing to the influence of others. As a number in connection with future events its warning and meaning should be carefully noted.


This number is called “the Royal Star of the Lion”. It is a promise of success, help from superiors and protection from those in high places. In dealing with future events it is a most fortunate number and a promise of success for one’s plans.


This number is also fortunate; it promises the assistance and association of those of rank and position with one’s plans; it also denotes gain thorough love and the opposite sex; it is a favourable number when it comes out in relation to future events.


This is number denoting strength gained through experience and benefits obtained through observation of people and things. It is not deemed exactly “lucky”, as its success is given through strife and trials in the earlier life. It is favourable when it appears in regard to the future.


This number is full of the gravest warnings for the future. It foreshadows disasters brought about by association with others; ruin, by bad speculations, by partnerships, unions, and bad advice.

Cheiro says ‘ A number of instant result.’ If this is your name number , you will suddenly and instantly rise to great heights unlike other lucky number which may  take some time for result. But Cheiro says that this is number of danger from enemies.

Numerology is as old as our ancient civilization. No one in fact knows the origin of the science of numerology but numbers are spoken of even in the ancient biblical literature and the Hindu mythological texts. As per the present records available, the least history of numerology dates back to the Pythagoras period which runs between 569 and 470 B.C. Pythagoras, a great sage, mathematician and philosopher of his times from Greece, had established a school in which he taught numerology too, among other subjects. Chaldean Numerology has its origins in the Hebrew Kabbalah, and is derived from the Chaldean Book of Numbers, in which numbers are said to represent the energies of Creation. These energies are perpetually active, and form the raison d’etre for the creation, conversion and destruction of matter.Thought to have originated around 3000 BC in Mesopotamia, Chaldean numerology has survived wars, change of civilizations etc. These numerology calculations are easy to understand and use, and work brilliantly to this day.Just add the total value of the first name and full name , look for the names meaning , and you are good to go!The numerical values for Chaldean numerology are derived from the Aramaic language, and adapted for the English alphabet. Hence it is the syllables, the sounds – that are important and not just the spelling of the names. I thought this point was pertinent enough to include here, because too many people are adding letters to their names without effectively changing the underlying syllables. Of late the trend is to make a list of names for a baby and then keeping adding the letter ‘a’ till the desired Chaldean Numerology names meaning is arrived at. If this was indeed effective, the earliest numerologists would have kept it simple and asked us to repeat letters until the desired total is reached! What an easy way to solve the world’s pressing problems!The fact is that the study of numerology began with the study of the effects of sounds on people. It is the sound that is the energy-influence, not just the spellings. So the syllables & sounds expressed in a name must be reflected in the direct spelling of the name. Otherwise we will only have numerical-compliance and not syllable-compliance.Chaldean numerology gained traction as the more popular system, because it is easy to understand and use. It gives an accurate long term prognosis of a person’s life.Having said that, Chaldean numerology has no defined technique for the prediction and control of events over shorter periods, let’s say, over a period of a month or a year etc.

The Destiny Number suggests your overall path in life and place in the world, is based on your complete birth date. It is easy to calculate. Simply add up the digits of your birth data, and keep “reducing” (explained via the example here) to a single digit.


for example,  If your birthday is April 28, 1968,

Birth Month is April, which is the 4th month = 4
Birth Day is 28 = 28
Birth Year is 1968 = 1968.
Add up the digits of all of these numbers:
4+2+8+1+9+6+8 = 38
Further “reduce” this number to a single digit by adding its digits:
3+8 = 11
And then further reduce it, if necessary:
1+1 = 2
The final digit, 2, is the Destiny Number!

Name Number

Use the birth name–the name given a person at birth–to determine the Name Number (also known as the Expression Number), which reveals the overall personality. To calculate the name number, find the number that corresponds to each letter in the name in the chart below, add the numerals up, and then “reduce” the final number to a single digit, as you did with the birth path number, above.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9


Name given at birth: Mary Lynn Smith.
Find each letter and its corresponding numeral in the chart above, and then add these digits together:
4+1+9+7+3+7+5+5+1+4+9+2+8 = 65
Reduce by adding the sum’s digits together, and then further reduce to come to a single digit, if necessary:
65 = 6+5 = 11
11 = 1+1 = 2
In this example, the Name Number is 2, representing the personality type.
