The Ancient Craft Of Numerology
combinations and the methods for choosing them are as
varied as the people who play the Lottery. Some people
take the scientific approach to picking numbers-they use
traditional strategies based on math or logic such as
tracking and wheeling.
Since many believe that the stars and
planets correlate with our lives by their positions or
aspects, many people use astrology as a guide to
choosing numbers. Other people use the ancient art of
numerology in their search for winning number
The ancient art of numerology is the study
of the meanings of numbers. Its exact origin is unknown,
but it predates the time of Christ and was practiced by
the Chaldeans of southern Babylonia (southern Iraq).
Some believe that the mysterious design of the Pyramids
of Giza, was, in part, based upon numerological
Numerologist Jo Mason believes that certain
numbers crop up frequently in a person's life. These may
be phone numbers, anniversaries or addresses. But the
most important one of all is your birthday number. The
"Lucky Numbers" author says there are two
types of birthday numbers-the primary and secondary
numbers, which are computed in different ways.
Although some numerologists disagree as to
which of the birth numbers are of greatest significance,
the birth date or the primary number, is generally
considered to be the most influential number. Your
primary number will apply to you for your entire life
and in every aspect of it from the lottery to
significant events in your life such as anniversaries,
births, weddings and important career events.
Your primary number is simply your birth
date. If a person's birthday was October 2, 1950 the
primary number is 2. If a person was born on a
double-digit date such as October 11, 1950, the primary
number is still 2, because in numerology, numbers are
always reduced to their lowest value. For example, 11
becomes 1+1 or 2.
Your secondary number, on the other hand,
is your other significant number. Through trial and
error, you can use them both, and over a period of time,
decide for yourself which one to use when picking your
However, determining this number is
slightly more complicated than figuring out your primary
number. To determine your secondary number, add the
numerical values of your month, day and year of birth
altogether. Then reduce the total number as previously
So, a person born on October 2, 1950 will
compute his or her secondary number like this: month +
date + year.
October = 10 or 1+0= 1; the date 11 is
reduced to 2; and 1950 is 1+9+5+0= 15 or 1+5 =6.
The equation is now: 1+2+6= 9.
Thus, the person's secondary number is 9.
Playing Your Birthday Numbers
When trying to win a Lotto Jackpot with
your primary number, you can play the number itself in
combination with other digits. A person with a primary
number of 6 may play 6 plus any other five numbers, such
as 13, 14, 19, 22 and 50.
An even better idea is to concentrate on
numbers with a value of 6. As was illustrated
previously, you may use any compound number that, when
added and reduced, equals your primary number. Our
August 15 birthday person could play any combination of
5, 15 (1+5=6), 24 (2+4=6), 33 (3+3=6), 42 (4+2=6), 51
(5+1=6), and 60 (6+0=6).
Another common way of using your birthday
numbers in the Lottery is to simply list the day, month
and year. The person born on October 2, 1970, would play
10, 02, and 70-but since seventy is too high to use in
most games, the double-digit could be reduced to 7.
