Numerology (Part 5)
Introduction to Chinese Numerology
What is Chinese Numerology?
Chinese (Karmic) Numerology is the oldest recorded method of divination. It appears to have been developed independently in Ancient China and Ancient Greece at about the same time. Pythagoras popularised it in Ancient Greece, and this system is sometimes called the Arrows of Pythagoras. In China, it is called the Lo Shu Numerology.
This method of Numerology is very easy to do and very accurate. It allows you to build a complete picture of a person by simply knowing their date of birth! And, unlike Astrology, you don't require their time of birth nor are there are any complicated calculations to perform.
The Eastern Numerology Grid
To begin an Eastern Numerology reading, follow these simple steps.
Step 1 - Draw a 3 x 3 grid.
Step 2 - Write out your date of birth using 2 digits for the day, 2 digits for the month and 4 digits for the year, eg 21 10 1981 or 03 01 1996, etc.
Step 3. Write each number in your date of birth in its correct position in the grid. All zero's go underneath the grid.
The correct position for each number is shown below.
In other words, the table above shows where all the numbers in the date of birth are written.
All 1's in a date of birth go in the 1 position, which is in the bottom left side of the grid. All 2's go in the 2 position, which is directly above the 1, etc.
So someone with a date of birth of 21 10 1981 has the following grid:
Someone with a date of birth of 03 01 1996 has the following grid:
It is impossible to have a chart in which there is a number in every square!
1. Draw a straight, thick line through any column, row or diagonal that has at least one number in each cell, like tic-tac-toe (naughts and crosses). Also, draw a dotted line through any column, row or diagonal that has no numbers in all 3 cells. Ignore the zeros when drawing lines.
See the example below:
The date of birth of 21 10 1981 has the following grid and arrows:
Yet another example for the date of birth of 03 01 1996:
When 3 numbers appear together in a row, column or diagonal (solid lines) they're called positive arrows.
When 3 empty cells appear together in a row, column or diagonal (dotted lines), they're called negative arrows.

Every number in the chart has a meaning. Every arrow has a meaning. The arrows will be covered next issue. The numbers are covered below:
