The science of Numerology is a very distinct astrological practice, because it is an amalgamation of both Eastern and Western philosophies. It is a culmination of knowledge which has been studied since ancient Greece, along with absorbed sciences of Indian, Arabic, and Chinese mysticism. This is why any practicing numerologist in Mumbai must adopt a number of philosophies and techniques into their practice.
In South India, the number '9' is not considered within the calculative techniques; whereas it bears much significance in Western numerology. In Chinese practices, the number '4' is usually associated with death and suffering; but in Shanghai, it is a lucky number. These are all examples of how the practice of numerology can change from place to place. A numerologist in Mumbai would usually follow a neutral, more generalized scientific technique rather than any particular regional beliefs. This makes the process a practical and systematic way to understand the influence of numbers in different walks of our lives.
Before visiting any numerologists in Mumbai for a calculation chart, it is important to understand certain defining cultural influences of particular numbers. These concepts are often extremely confusing for people who do not understand numerology. Here are some examples -
The Number 13: In western society, particularly in the UK and America, many buildings do not have a 13th floor, or 13th room; and would instead use 12A and 12B before moving directly on to number 14. However, no one really knows why the number 13 has been associated with bad luck and misfortune. In numerology, 13 = 1+3 = 4, which is also supposed to be unlucky in Chinese philosophies. However, most professional astrologers would confidently claim that there is nothing particularly unlucky or inauspicious about this number!
11, 22 and 33: If you ask any professional numerologist in Mumbai, they will tell you how many clients seek to invoke the power of 11, 22, and 33 in their lives. These special numbers are not calculated by the usual method of numerology, but are considered especially powerful and auspicious. 11 is associated with intuition and pragmatism, 22 is linked to ambition and confidence, while 33 is associated with wisdom and piety. However, many numerologists simply calculate these as 2, 4, and 6 respectively without any special considerations.
