Numerology and Playing Lottery

The number one concern in playing any lottery is how to choose the number combination that will most likely give the player the biggest odd of winning. The methods of choosing the number combination is as varied as the people who play the lottery. Some lottery players choose the number combination based on the important numbers in their lives such as birthdays or anniversaries. Some people use the scientific approach in picking the number combination such as using strategies based on logic or math in the form of tracking and wheeling.

However, there is a large group of lottery players who believe that the correlation of stars and planets with their lives by way of the stars’ and planets’ positions or aspects may determine their future, hence the use of astrology in choosing the numbers combination in playing lottery. On the other hand, there are also people who use the ancient art of numerology in choosing their winning number combinations.

Numerology is defined as the study of numbers and the occult manner in which they reflect aptitudes and character tendencies as part of the cosmic plan. In numerology, each letter has a corresponding numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. For example, the sum of the numbers in a person’s birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name of the same person is believed to have an interrelation of vibrations. The numbers are believed to show a lot about the character, purpose in life, motivation, and talents of the person. Numerology is consulted in determining the best time for major activities or major moves in a person’s life. It is also used as guide in making financial investment, making decisions of who or when to marry, and many other major decisions in a person’s life.

Many numerologists agree that birth numbers have the greatest significance in a person’s life and decision making. The birth date, considered to be the primary number, is regarded as the most influential number. If a person was born on December 23, 1988, the primary number is 5, derived by adding 2 + 3.  The secondary number is determined by combining the month, day, and year of birth. The person born of December 23, 1988 will determine his secondary number as month + date + year as follows:

December = 12 or 1 + 2 = 3; the day is 23 = 2 + 3 = 5; and 1988 is 1+ 9 + 8 + 8 =  26 or 2 + 6 = 8.

The equation will be 3 + 5 + 8 = 16 or 1 + 6 = 7

The person will have 5 as the primary number and 7 as the secondary number. He can use the numbers 5 and 7, together with other numbers determined by numerology to be good combinations with the primary and secondary numbers.

Expert numerologists and astrologers believe that nothing in life is completely random; events are determined by numbers or planets and stars.
