There are many different aspects to a numerological chart. The two main calculations for numerology are the Lifepath Number- derived from the birth date- and the Destiny Number- derived from the full birth name. But there are other readings and they all have one thing in common- the numbers that make numerology what it is. The numbers 1 through 9 and the master numbers of 11 and 22 are the only ones used in numerology. And they have the same basic traits behind them no matter what calculation is being done. Knowing the positive and negative aspects of each number can make understanding a numerology chart a lot easier.
