Basically, numerologists believe that there’s a mystical connection between numbers and events, and that you can study the numbers attached to a given person, place or idea — like, yes… an address! — in order to learn something about it. Numerology is an age-old practice dating back to ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, but it’s still something a lot of people believe in and practice today. And if you’re looking for a fun and fresh way to think about your home, this just might be it.
It starts with discovering your home’s number — a single digit between 1 and 9 — and then discovering what that number has to uncover about your home’s unique energy and character.
In numerology, you need to distill your address into a single digit, which you can do by adding numbers together. For example, if you live at 724 Main Street, you’ll take your address number (“724”) and add the digits together:
7 + 2 + 4 = 13
Then, if you get a double-digit number as a result, add again:
1 + 3 = 4
Your house number is 4!
If you live on a street named for a number…
Ignore it. For example, if your address is 130 5th Avenue, ignore the street (“5th Avenue”) and add up just the address number (the “130,” which becomes “4”).
If you live in an apartment…
Use your unit number — it’s the most unique number for your space. For example, if you live at 1200 Willow Court, Apt. 33, only add up the unit number (“33,” which adds down to “6”).
If you have letters in your address or unit number …
Add it up! If your street number or apartment number contains a letter — like “960-A,” or “4C”—you’ll want to add the letter along with the numbers, using the numeric equivalent of that letter (which is done by assigning it a number according to it’s place in the alphabet). Here’s a cheat sheet:
1 – A, J, S
2 – B, K, T
3 – C, L, U
4 – D, M, V
5 – E, N, W
6 – F, O, X
7 – G, P, Y
8 – H, Q, Z
9 – I, R
So apartment 4C gives us the numbers “4” and “3” (for C), for a numerology number of “7.”
The house number that is closest to you (most influential) is the actual house, apartment or unit number. The next important number is your address with the house number combined with the street and the directionals (spelled out) but without the city, state, zip or country. Think of it as you would speak it to someone - rather than as you would write it out - without shortening the directional or street type (Road, Street, Avenue, Boulevard etc..). This is the true 'vibration' of your address.
When you get a number that is multiple digits, add those digits together to get a single digit. For example; 23 = 2 + 3 - so it would be a number 5 address. 123 would be added: 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. But make sure to read the number influences for each number unreduced as well.
So, to get a true understanding of the influences of your home and the types of activities that are best supported there;
1) Look at the house number (or apartment number) - i.e. a house number of 123 is a #6 house and it is a #6 house that also has the influence of 1, 2 and 3 - so read about those too, but give the most weight to the number 6 total.
2) Look at your address with your street included. This gives you some added information about your home in relationship to your neighborhood. Look at the street name alone (As for example "North Main Street") to understand more about the vibration of the street you live on. If you live in an apartment complex, look at the address of the complex without your apartment number to understand the energy of this complex as a whole. All of these numbers influence your home environment, but none as much as your individual 'dwelling number'.
3) You can understand more about your city, state or country this way too! Experiment and see what you see!
Choose a house that’s compatible with your lifepath and desires.
Generally speaking, odd number lifepaths (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) do better in odd numbered houses.
Even number lifepaths (2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 22, 33, 44) do better in even numbered houses.
