Numbers… math… ugh. If you are anything like me, you detest math. So the topic of numbers isn’t very attractive. The only important ones are what’s in your paycheck and the balance in your bank account. Yet, numbers are magical. Spiritual. Numbers are all around us and we generally take them for granted. You don’t have to like math to learn about the magic energy of numbers.
We touched on the topic briefly some while ago, when discussing the significance of repeating numbers. You know when you notice the time is 11:11, or 10:10? Or you see 444 on license plates? Once you begin noticing, it seems to happen more and more often.
So what can you do with these magical numbers? How might they enhance your life or somehow work to your advantage?
How To Use the Magic Energy of Numbers
There are many ways to use the magic energy of numbers, and the best way is to become aware of them and work with them. So, for example, if January is considered to be month 1, then working with that ‘one’ energy during the whole month can benefit you.
You’ve probably heard of numerology? When important numbers, such as your date of birth, are reduced to single digits and analyzed? You don’t have to know a great deal about numerology to work with numbers. It’s a simple process. Find out what your personal personality number is by adding together the digits of your date of birth until they reduce to a number between one and ten. That’s your birth number, and you’ll find that you have many traits and characteristics of that number. You can then try it with your friends’ birth dates, and your partner’s, or even your dog’s.
To find out the number essence of any large number, such as a birth date, simply split it out into digits and add them together. Keep doing it until you are down to a single number. For example: someone born on May 27, 1995 5+2+7+1+9+9+5 = 38. 3+8 = 11. 1+1 = 2.
Use days and dates to find out which would be best for certain actions or events. You can keep it simple and focus only on the day of the week: Monday = 1. Or you can combine actual dates as described above for more important actions. For example, Tuesday (2) would be better for a date than Monday. Saturday (6) would be even better.

The Magical Properties of Numbers
Note: When referring to specific number days for the best times to do something, it can be the day of the week, dates during a month or the month itself. So for choosing a day of the week to ask for (or demand) a pay raise, Monday or the 1st of the month would be the best. For working magic, choose Sunday, or the 7th (or 16th/25th)day of the month. To start a spiritual journey, begin on the 7th of July.

A quick word about zero, while not connected to any personality or date, it is still an important number. Zero is pure potential. It holds everything: creativity, unmanifested material, thoughts not yet coalesced. Zero is connected to the Fool in tarot, the unformed personality, the unfertilized egg, the unrealized idea. When zero appears for you, know that potential is there and that you have to take action in order to set things in motion.
