Pythagorean Numerology

The Pythagorean Numerology System

Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher who lived more than 2,500 years ago, is the father of Pythagorean numerology. Some people believe that Pythagoras learned numerology in Egypt, others believe he learned it from Indian gurus in India.

Pythagoras and his followers were a religious order that studied many spiritual techniques. They were all vegetarians.

He believed that everything in the universe can be explained with numbers. His exact quote was “all things are numbers”. Pythagoras used mathematics only for spiritual reasons.

He believed that number 1 is the origin of all things. Matter was represented by the number 2. The ideal number was the number 3.
He believed that the number 4 represented the four seasons of the year and the four elements. Marriage was represented by the number 5.
The sacred number was the number 7 which represented the seven planets. The perfect number was the number 10. Pythagoreans never gathered in groups larger than 10.

He believed that the numbers were the key to spiritual life and that through numbers we could find a way to God.

Pythagorean Numerology, or "Modern Numerology," as it's often called, is used in the majority of cases. Pythagorean Numerology is very popular because it's easier to learn how to translate letters into numbers, and to master their meanings. The name, when analyzed under Pythagorean Numerology, gives a psycho­logical bent to what motivates you, what you best ex­press naturally, as well as the impression you're likely to make on others. Thus, Pythagorean Numerology method defines the natural talents, abilities, and tools that you were given at birth. This is why using the full name at birth is very important under this Pythagorean Numerology system.

Before we go any further, I want to make it clear that Numerology does not depend on psychic ability. It is not clairvoyance. I believe everyone is somewhat psychic and that we all have intuitions, but the power of Numerology doesn't depend on these characteristics.

The science of Pythagorean Numerology begins with six primary numbers: three that can be derived from your birthday, and three that come from your name. These six numbers offer us insight into who we are and how we can improve our lives in Pythagorean Numerology.

There are six vibrations in the pythagorean numerology system that we'll be working with. These numbers are:

The Life Path Number

It is the main number in Pythagorean numerology. It provides the most information about you and your life. It shows your life experiences and the lessons you will learn during your lifetime. Other names for Life Path Number are Ruling Number, Birth Path Number, Birth Force Number. Describes the path your life must take in order to learn your karmic lessons. It is the main number in Pythagorean numerology.

Al Pacino April 25, 1940. 4/25/1940
Let’s use his birth date to calculate Life Path Number.
4 + 2 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 4 + 0 = 25
Now we reduce 25 to single digit number.
2 + 5 = 7
Al Pacino’s Life Path Number is 7.

The Birth Day Number

The birthday number shows your other personality traits, specific abilities and talents that will assist you during your life time. It describes the way others see you. This is the easiest Pythagorean vibration to calculate. You just take the day of the month you were born on and you reduce it down to a single number. Other names for this vibration are Day number, birth number.

Let’s use Al Pacino’s birth date again. 4/25/1940. As you can see he was born on 25th of April. His birth number is 25 = 7.

The First Impression Number

You can calculate The First Impression Number by adding the day and the month of your birth together and reducing the total number to a single digit number. Al Pacino's birthday is 4/25/1940. His first impression number is 25 + 4 = 29 = 2.

Describes your first impression you have of people. It is what we think of a person when we talk to them for the first time.

The Inner Soul / Vowels Number

Inner soul is the third most important Pythagorean vibration. People also call it a Soul's Urge, Heart's Desire, Soul's Desire. Describes what you desire from inside, what are your motivations, what you want to become in your life. People may not see this part of your character, but they feel it. You need to fulfill this desire during your lifetime to feel complete.
You get this number by adding all the vowels in your full name together and reduce it to a single number.

Let's use Al Pacino's name again for this calculation. I am using my numerology calculator to calculate vibrations.

Inner Soul Pythagorean vibration

His vowels are 1 + 1 + 9 + 6 = 17 = 8
As you can see the total of all the vowels is 8. His Inner Soul Number is 8.

The Character / Consonants Number

It is a less important vibration in Pythagorean numerology. Other names for this vibration are Character Number, Outer Personality Number. Describes how people will perceive you. It is what you show the world.
You can calculate The Personality Number by adding all the consonants in your full name together and reducing it down to single digit number.

Al Pacino’s total consonant number is 9. His consonants are 3 + 7 + 3 + 5 = 18 = 9.


The Expression Number

The Expression Number is the second most important number in Pythagorean numerology. It is calculated from your full name. This number shows what you're destined to do, strength of your potential, your natural talents and capabilities.
Let’s use Al Pacino again and let’s calculate his expression number.

pythagorean numerology expression number

As you can see the total of vowels and consonants is 35. Then we reduce 35 to a single number and we get 8. Al Pacino’s Expression Number is 8.


The most important number in pythagorean numerology is Life Path Number. This is the first step to analyze a person and to find out more about him.

Pythagorean Numerology Chart

Each letter in Pythagorean chart has a matching number from 1 to 9. A has a value of one. B has a value of two and so forth. In the case of 10th letter J, we simply drop 0 and treat it as 1. All other letters are calculated with the same pattern. Pythagoreans claim that there are only nine basic numbers, all other numbers repeat itself.

Pythagorean Numerology Vibrations

When we have a compound number, we reduce it to single digit number. For example 20 becomes 2. In Pythagorean numerology two numbers are especially important, they were associated with Revelation. These two numbers are 11 and 22. 11 and 22 are not simply 2 and 4 single digit vibrations. They have a higher potential and are called master numbers.


Usually people want to know if they are compatible with other people, family, lovers, coworkers etc. A precise Pythagorean Numerology calculation can analyze if a person is in harmony with others.

But sometimes people do not get along with other people even if the Life Path Number is in harmony withe theirs. This is because each number has a positive and a negative energy associated with it in Pythagorean Numerology. You might be bringing out the negative energy of a particular person's number simply because that's what you're expecting from that person that's what you're used to. This is just one more way that knowing the numbers can help you change your life for the better in Pythagorean Numerology. Once you know whom you are compatible with, you can start breaking these patterns of low expectations.
