Numerology in Magick

Numerology is the study of the cosmic significance behind numbers. It can be used to divine the future for an individual but it can also be used in magick to create changes in accordance with one's will.

The study of numbers is as old as time itself. There are even some scholars that believe the words in the bible were chosen because they coordinated with a complicated Kabbalistic numerical system that served as a calendar. To those who understand the principles, this calendar has foretold the many of the world's events with surprising accuracy...all through the language of numbers.

From my own experience, I have personally found numerology to be highly valuable in adding to the success of ritual magick. For this reason, I strongly urge all Witches and Magicians to consider numerical values before beginning any magickal working. Even the slightest alignment of a ritual intent with the correct numerical value will increase the likelihood of success.

Different ways you can increase a spell or ritual's effectiveness with Numerology:

Coordinate your specific purpose according to the appropriate numerical values listed below. For example:

  1. Candle Magick: Vary the number of candles according to your ritual intention.

  2. Begin or end your ritual on specific times of the day, month, week, or year.

  3. Cord Magick: Vary the number of knots you make in a cord to make a Witch's Ladder. (The ancient ancestor of the Catholic Rosary)

  4. Vary the number of days you perform your ritual according to your ritual purpose.

  5. Vary the number of times you chant an incantation according to your ritual purpose.

  6. Choose a day to begin or end a spell that is a certain number of days before or after the Full (or New) Moon.

  7. Use a certain number of drops of oil to anoint a candle or ritual tool before a working.
