The preliminary data generally required to analyze the numbers is date of birth (date, month and year) and full name (including surname). Based on this the numerologist can realize the numbers that have a strong influence on someone's life or personality.
Another information that becomes important is - the name in use. This is because sometimes the real name is not in use or less used. The one with more influence on sub-conscious mind will have more impact. For example a person was named Hanuman Prasad Ghosh according to his birth chart but for general use the name was changed to Sandeep Ghosh.
Now, when Sandeep went to college his friends started calling him Sandy. He liked this name and for unofficial purposes (in office and outside) preferred to be called Sandy. No one calls him Sandeep now except only a few people from the past. So, he had three names - two of his names were generally in use and the one based on birth chart not in use anymore.
How to Find out the Important Numbers from Date of Birth
Date of birth is generally said to constitute two important numbers, viz., the total of the date (day on which you were born) and the total of date of birth (day, month and year).
Consider for example, someone born on 30-10-1983:
For this person the personality will reflect the qualities of "number 3" as the sum of 30 is 3+0=3. In my experience I have found that it is not only the number "3" that will play a key role but also "0" that is attached to it. This will play a key role in differentiating the personality of this person from 03, 12, and 21.
The life path number (as shown above) is the total of the day, month and year of the date of birth. For this person it would be 7. The exception in such calculations is '11' and '22'. 11 and 22 are called Master Numbers' and not further converted to 2 and 4.
Life path number has the potential to influence the decisions in one's life. It generally represents the direction of life of an individual, where he wants to go. The strengths and weaknesses of personality number are influenced by Life Path number. There is another way of arriving at Life Path Number which most people follow:
There is another thing that most books generally don't talk about but I have found very important in analyzing the date of birth. The number of times a number appears in the date of birth. The influence of this number over the personality of an individual in some cases could be more than the Personality number. For example - 12 - 12 - 1982.
We will discuss this in detail some other time as the purpose of this article is just to find out the important numbers from the date of birth and names.
How to Find Out Important Numbers from Name
Each Alphabet represents a number according to numerology. Some numerologists assign different values to alphabets (for example - instead of counting up to 9, they count up to 12).
If the name of a person is Ram Viz, the numbers would be
R = 9, A = 1, M = 4 or 9+1+4 = 14 or 1+4 = 5.
V = 4, I = 9, Z =8 or 4 + 9 + 8 = 21 or 2+1 = 3.
Ram + Viz = 5 + 3 = 8 or some might consider simply 5 for Ram.
Some people don't use surnames or two word names. They write their name as "Joy" or "Abhishek" only without any surname, father's name, native place name etc. attached to it. In that case only the single name can be considered.
The number we just arrived at is also called Karma Number. Some people use the Karmic number as any number between 1 - 9.
In the next articles we will try to find out what numbers would mean to different people.

ज्योतिष सदा से ही मेरा प्रिय विषय रहा है. अपने अभी तक के जीवन में मुझे इस क्षेत्र से जुड़े बहुत से लोगों के विचार जानने का अवसर मिला. सौभाग्यवश ऐसे भी कई लोगों से मिला जिन्हें इस क्षेत्र में विश्वास ही नहीं था. फ्यूचरपॉइंट संस्था (दिल्ली) से भी बहुत कुछ सीखा और अपने पिताजी से तो अभी भी यदा कदा सीखते ही रहता हूँ. ज्योतिष अच्छा तो बहुत है परंतु इसमें भ्रांतियां भी उतनी ही फैली हुई हैं जिस कारण कभी कभी बड़ा दुःख होता है. नौकरी के चलते ज्योतिष में समय देना थोड़ा कठिन हो जाता है अतः ईश्वर की प्रेरणा से अपने विचारों को प्रकट करने के लिए और इनसे किसी का कुछ भी भला हो सके इसी हेतु लेख लिखा करता हूँ.
