House Numerology 101
When it comes to buying (or selling!) a home, numbers are everything! From the price of the home, closing costs, mileage from your preferred location, and square footage to the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and parking spaces, numbers rule. Whether you’re in the process of buying your first home or looking into upgrading your current home, numbers play a pivotal role in deciding whether a home is right for you. House numerology may be another numbers-based item you want to consider before signing on the line for your next big purchase.
We want all the good karma when it comes to your new home, so learn more about how house numerology can help you decide if the energy and essence of a potential home is right for you… or, if the home you’re living in now fits into your soulful vibration.
What is numerology?
In the most basic terms, numerology is the study of numbers and their effect on your life. It has been said that numbers have a universal language that can be decoded into different levels and types of energy. The main idea is that everything in the universe is made up of certain numbers and when we break the numbers down to the core numbers we can best determine their main purpose or soul path. This is true for both living and nonliving things.
Everyone has a life path number. You calculate this number by using the entirety of your birthday and then simplifying it to a single number that provides you with a deeper look and understanding into your soul’s purpose. For example, if your birthday was March 15, 1988, your life number would be 3 (month of birth) + 15 (day of birth) + (year broken down into single digits) 1+9+8+8 = 44. Then, take 4+4 = 8. Your life path number would be eight.
Each life path number, from 1-9, has a specific set of personality traits and characteristics that represent each person and thing that belongs within that path number. By knowing your life path number and diving deeper into understanding it, you may learn more about yourself and the path you are on in your life.
Why is house numerology, in particular, important?
For those who are innately curious about their own life path number, discovering your home’s number may be another way to determine if you and your home are in sync. The main idea behind house numerology is that each street address, and house number, has a specific energy and tone tied to it. Determining what that is helps you understand whether the home is compatible with you.
How do I find my house number?
Calculating your house number is simple and handled the same way you would your own life number. You take the number within the address and add all the numbers together. Then you add the numbers within the sum together until you get one digit. For example, if you lived on 1234 Main Street you would calculate it by adding 1+2+3+4 = 10, then add 1+ 0 = 1, so your house number, in numerology, would be one. If your normal address has a letter after the house number, say 1234B Mainstreet, you would treat the letter as an additional number. Going through the alphabet, each letter has a corresponding number. A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4 and so on. In this example it would be 1+2+3+4+2= 12, then 1+2 = 3, so your house numerology number would be three.
