Chapter 1: The Basics

Arithmancy, also known as Numerology, is a form of Divination like no other. There is no guesswork or interpretation in this art; this method of fortune-telling is based solely on names and numbers.

The word Arithmancy comes from the Greek words arithmo meaning number and mancy meaning prophecy. It has been used by witches and wizards for more than two thousand years. It is based on two very old ideas, that a persons name contains clues to their character and destiny, and that each of the numbers between 1 and 9 has a unique meaning that can contribute to the understanding of all things. This book covers the most widely used system of Arithmancy finding the Character, Heart, and Social numbers. All this requires is a quill, some parchment, and simple math skills.

First, each letter of the alphabet must be assigned a numerical value, according to the chart below:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

To analyze a name, write it down and beneath it put the number which corresponds to each letter. For example:

A l b u s D u m b l e d o r e
1 3 2 3 1 4 3 4 2 3 5 4 6 9 5

Add all of the numbers up, which gives you 55. When the total exceeds nine, which this does, add the digits together until a number between 1 and 9 is reached. This gives you 10 and therefore 1. This number is the Character Number, which represents the personality type of the person you are studying.

The next number is the Heart Number, which represents the persons inner life and indicates hidden desires and fears. This is the total of all the vowels. For example:

A l b u s D u m b l e d o r e
1 3 3 5 6 5

Add these up, which gives you 23. This reduces to 5.

The third and final number is the Social Number, which represents the outer personality the face the person shows to the outside world. This is the total of all the consonants. For example:

A l b u s D u m b l e d o r e
3 2 1 4 2 3 4 9

The total is 32, which also reduces to 5.

Once these three numbers are found, you can match them with traits associated with each number based on the ideas of Pythagoras, among others. By doing this you can form a picture of who that person really is.

The Character Number can also be used to find lucky and unlucky days. For example, a person with a character number of 8 could consider the 8th, 17th, or 26th of the month to be their lucky days.

Also, people, places, and things which share the same Character Number are considered to naturally go together. Virtually all of lifes decisions can therefore be made this way.

Chapter 2: The Meaning of the Numbers

One: An individual independent, focused, single-minded, determined. They are leaders who find it difficult to work with others and be bossed around. They are often loners and can be self-centered and egotistical.

Two: Interaction, cooperation, balance. They are imaginative and creative, and are marked by their commitment, loyalty, and fairness. But, twos can be withdrawn, moody, and self-conscious.

Three: Completeness, wholeness. Talent, energy, artistic, humor, social ease. Threes are often lucky, highly successful, and rich, but can be unfocused and superficial.

Four: Stability, firmness. Fours enjoy hard work, and are practical and reasonable. They prefer logic and reason, and are organized and predictable. They can be stubborn, and the conflicts listed in two are doubled with the fours.

Five: Instability: change and uncertainty. They have trouble committing to things, but are adventurous and willing to take risks. They enjoy travel but dont stay in one place for long. Fives can be conceited, quick-tempered and impatient.

Six: Harmony and friendship. Sixes are loyal, reliable, loving, and adapt easily. Teaching and the arts are their thing; business is not. They are prone to gossip.

Seven: Understanding and bright. Sevens enjoy hard work and challenges. Serious, scholarly, interested in the mysterious. Moneys glimmer dims next to originality and imagination. They can be pessimistic, sarcastic, and insecure.

Eight: Possibility of great success in business, finance, and politics. Practical, ambitious, commited, hardworking, jealous, greedy, domineering. Unpredictable can indicate pinnacle of success or depths of failure.

Nine: Completion and achievement to the fullest degree. Dedicated to the service of others, i.e. teachers or scientists. Strongly determined, work tirelessly, are an inspiration to others. Nines can be arrogant and conceited when they dont get their way.
