What is Chaldean Numerology?

Chaldean numerology, developed by the Chaldea people almost 4,000 years ago, is probably the oldest form of numerology.

Chaldea was the area near the Persian Gulf, the southern part of Babylonia (presently southern Iraq/Kuwait). The Chaldea people were quite famous for their contributions to mathematics, physics, and astronomy. They possessed a sound knowledge of stars and, to a lesser degree, magic. Their study of the occult led them to develop a system to analyze the effects of stars on the earth, especially human beings.

Chaldean Numerology was Based on Sound and Vibrations

It is closely associated with the Vedic system of numerology and the Quballic system of the Jewish Mystics. The Chaldea assigned a number from 1 to 9 to each vibration. The number 9 is generally considered holy in Chaldean numerology and is not used in the standard numerology chart. However, if the sum of the letters (i.e., vibration) in someone’s name results in 9, the 9 remains.

It is important to note that word vibration is used here instead of letters. As such, how your name is written is not important, but rather how it is pronounced. Mastering this counting method requires practice. If you are new to numerology, apply the formula of not calculating the silent letters in the word.

How Do you Calculate Chaldean Numerology?

So, let us discuss how to calculate numbers in Chaldean numerology. Suppose the name of my friend is Peter Rangarajan.

Every letter is assigned a number, and these numbers are added until the result is a single digit. 

PETER=>8+5+4+5+2=>24

RANGARAJAN=>2+1+5+3+1+2+1+1+1+5=22

24+22=46=>4+6=>10=>1+0=>1

So the characteristics of PETER RANGARAJAN are determined by the characteristics of the number 1. (Note: The characteristics of letters for the numbers 1 to 9 are described on the page entitled Numerology – The Essence of the Universe.) This is the process of calculating the single number of one’s name, which represents the physical outward appearance of a person’s name.

However, according to the Chaldean system, a single number is not sufficient for analyzing an individual’s characteristics. In this point, Chaldean numerology differs from the Western system.

The Chaldea emphasized compound numbers (which do not exist in the Western system), representing deeper, metaphysical, hidden influences of force behind the name. Until you know your inner potential, you cannot expose yourself to the right path at the right time. We all possess internal energy; until we can use our energy to the extreme, we are only halfway on our path.

In the above example, there are two compound numbers, 24 for PETER and 22 for RANGARAJAN. If you have a middle name, you will have three compound numbers, which will strongly influence your life.

A single number denotes what you appear in the eyes of others. In contrast, double or compound numbers show the hidden influences that play a vital role behind the senses and some of our characteristics that we never find with our open eyes. The character analysis for the numbers 1 to 9 is the same as described on the Name Numerology page of this site.

All the numbers 10 upward have their own meaning and significance. Here, I shall explain the characters of all the numbers between 10 and 52(the ultimate number) as described in Chaldean numerology.
