Every house has a history, a story that makes it as it is today. In many cases, you can see this story and personality in the small cracks in the walls and faded marks on the doors.
More than its history, according to numerology, each house also has an innate personality that you can unlock by understanding the number of your home.
What is numerology
At its most basic level, numerology is the study of the numbers that make up the Universe.
Numerology has a long history, dating back at least 3,000 years to ancient Mesopotamia, and is practiced by different cultures around the world, including Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Chinese, Indians and Japanese.
Modern Western numerology is largely based on Greek numerology, otherwise known as Pythagorean numerology, because the mathematician, philosopher and teacher was one of his most famous disciples.
Pythagoras and his disciples believed that the Universe was built according to a divine geometric plan, which is why the same geometric patterns reproduce several times in nature.
As a result, they believed that numbers are the building blocks of the Universe and that, like human DNA, they contain information about the Universe that can be read and deciphered.
The numerologists believe that everything in the Universe has a number, or a series of numbers, that define its innate character. For example, a life path number, which is determined by a person's date of birth, usually reveals how their life will unfold, the opportunities they will have and the lessons they will learn.
Like people, the places also have numbers that reflect the energy of the place. It is possible that people are compatible or incompatible with a location, feel comfortable or decidedly uncomfortable in that space. This may explain why some people fall in love with a place at the time of their arrival, while others do not feel well in a certain place, despite the lack of obvious reason for their discomfort.
Determine the number of your home
To determine the number of your home, you must first select the part of your address that has the most resonance for your home.
For example, you may live at 1704 8th Avenue. In this case, your home number is the most important number for your home, so you will use your house number to determine the number of your home.
To do this, you need to reduce your house number to a single number from 1 to 9, or one of the three main numbers (11, 22, 33), which are special numbers in numerology.
0 is also an important number in numerology, but as it means an infinite possibility, and all the things that may eventually exist, you will never encounter a person or a place characterized by the number 0.
To reduce your house number to a single digit or master number, simply add the numbers together.
For example, 1 – 7 – 0 – 4 – 12, then this must be further reduced 1 – 2 – 3, revealing that the number of this house is 3.
If you live in an apartment, for example, apartment 31C at 1704 8th Avenue, your apartment number replaces your address.
In this case, you determine the number in the same way, but do not ignore the C. In numerology, all letters have a corresponding number, so you need to determine the number of the letter C (see list below) and add it to your equation.
So, in the case of apartment 31C, you would add 3 – 1 – 3 – 9, making your house a number 9.
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
Maybe you live at an address called, for example, Rose Cottage, in this case, the name of the address is more important than any other part of the address. To calculate the number of this address, assign a number to each letter and add them up until you get a single number or master number.
Thus, for Rose Cottage, we would determine the number of Rose 9 – 6 – 1 – 5 – 21, which is reduced to 2 – 1 – 3. We would then determine the number for Cottage 3 – 6 – 2 – 2 – 1 – 7 – 5 – 21, which is reduced to 2 – 1 – 3.
Here, in theory, you would add 3-3 to give you a number of 6 for your home, but as 33 is a master number, you will keep 33.
What do the different home numbers mean?
Home number 1
It represents independence, innovation and ambition, and it's a great place to live if you're self-employed or an entrepreneur. It is also a space that can help people living together to maintain their autonomy and freedom. Space can sometimes lead to a lack of cooperation as everyone pursues their own programmes.
Home number 2
This represents a loving and friendly atmosphere where guests will always feel welcome. It is an excellent number for a family home, fostering harmony and close relationships. The space can easily become very emotionally charged, so it is important to clean it regularly to maintain harmony.
Home number 3
This represents a place with a joyful and optimistic energy, and perhaps a place that sees a lot of social gatherings. It also resonates with a lot of creative energy, so it's a great space for artistic efforts. Space may tend to be disorganized and blurred, but decluttering can help curb this.
House number 4
This represents a strong and secure environment that has a lot of discipline and structure. It may lack excitement and feel stifling for some people, but it is also a great energy to set realistic goals and bring wealth. Creating a work-life balance is important for people living in this space.
Home number 5
This represents a gregarious space that always elicits surprises and unexpected adventures. It promotes progressive ideas and is a great place to live if you love your freedom. It can be difficult to create a quiet space in this type of home, but creating a quiet garden or bringing plants indoors can help balance that energy.
Home number 6
It inspires beauty, love and harmony and vibrates with a balanced energy. It is a space that nourishes and is ideal for couples. There is a wonderful quality of healing to this number, making it an excellent choice for those who work in a care setting. Space can make some people feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities and can also turn them into bodies at home. To help balance this energy, it is important to allow time for social or creative activities outside the home.
House number 7
This represents secrets and the desire for privacy. Those who seek a quiet space to reflect and grow thrive in this kind of environment. This space may leave some people feeling isolated and alone, but it is also ideal for those looking for spiritual development. This space is also a good choice for writers, artists and those who need time alone to spread their ideas around the world.
House number 8
This represents prosperity and abundance, and is therefore a privileged space for many businesses. It can be a place that gives people physical energy and can also help stimulate the ambition and motivation of those who live there. The abundance of this space can give some people the feeling of always wanting more and never achieving satisfaction.
Home number 9
It represents universal love and compassion and it is a space where all people generally feel welcomed and accepted. If you live in a house 9, you will probably find that guests often come unexpectedly. This makes it a good space for older couples and for young families. Sharing the energy of space can be a struggle for people who need to take the time to work on themselves, but this can be balanced by creating a sacred space in an area of the house.
House number 11
The Master Number 11 represents intuition and enlightenment, and 11 houses are inspiring and creative places. Living in this space can help promote innovative ideas and new creations. 11 is a number of light, which lends itself to airy spaces that make the most of natural light. Because 11 has strong vibrations, this type of space can often bring spiritual tests.
House number 22
The Master Number 22 represents the master of the Universe's prime contractor and creative energy. It's a great space to feel on the ground and to control the shaping of your world. People who spend a lot of time in this type of space may feel excessive pressure to create and succeed.
House number 33
The Master Number 33 combines the characteristics of 11 and 22 and represents the altruistic side of life. Places with the number 33 are often spiritual places, or places where people work to support others, rather than for personal gain. People who live in space 33 may sometimes feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of others.
