Astrological Signs and Numerology: What the Numbers Say About You



Know the relationship between Numerology and the signs of the zodiac and what characteristics the numbers imprint on the astral personality.

Numerology is a tool that, placed at the service of self-knowledge, allows us to know the talents, aspirations and challenges associated with each of the signs of the Zodiac. Each number has its own meaning and introduces a new cycle, and each sign is influenced by its own ruling planet . It is based on this assumption that numbers can have a lot to say about your personality and how you deal with problems in your life.

Numerology and the Zodiac Signs

For Numerology, each sign of the Zodiac corresponds to a Number. The Number assigned to each sign is determined by its ruling planet - this is the Personality Number . From our date of birth we discover one of the most basic information about our astrological personality - the sun sign . Each sign is dominated by a planet (the so-called ruling planet), which has a special meaning for the natives.

At the time of our birth, the stars were located in a certain way in the sky. The planets carry different energetic charges which, when combined, influence the personality characteristics of the signs. The ruling planet dominates a certain sign and, in the birth chart , the planet ruling the Ascendant is said to be the planet of the chart.

Ruling Planet, Astrological Sign and Numerology

The planets are the active principle of Astrology and symbolize the universal characteristics that the human being possesses. The signs of the Zodiac are another fundamental element for the analysis of the astrological personality, being that each one is influenced by the energy charge of the respective ruling planet.

Numerology also considers this principle and suggests that the influence of the ruling planet causes the natives to have certain personality characteristics and behave in a certain way.
