Getting into the numbers game

People swear by numerology and many will not do anything if the numbers don’t match. Many get telephone numbers they say are lucky for them, while some will not live in a house if they feel the house number will bring nothing but misfortune.

What could be more powerful than one’s birth number. Here’s how you can calculate it. A birth number does not prevent you from being anything you want to be. It will just colour your choice differently and give you a little insight.

Calculating it:

If your birthday is March 20, 1950, then add 3 + 20 + 1950 = 1973 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 3 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2

So, 2 is your birth number.
