The science of numerology supports the notion that
address numbers of buildings have great symbolic

First, you must consider that the address and unit
numbers of residences or offices don’t make things
happen, nor do they hold direct power over anything.

The application of numerology to figure out, for example,
if a possible home will enhance your life is pre-destined,
in our view. You’re just carrying out your destiny, despite
it possibly appearing as manipulation of your life
circumstances (previewing the energy associated with
possible residences) through number symbolism.

A soul selects a specific time to incarnate. That point
of origin (birth) as indicated by a date and time reflects
its qualities and its past, present, and future through the
science of numerology. Numerology can be used in
virtually every area of life and some people are fated
to capitalize on the wisdom found through it and some

Although calendars appear to start at arbitrary times,
everything in this universe is interrelated, including
systems used to track time. We say this to emphasize
our conviction that little in this universe occurs by

Even though unit numbers may seem to be randomly
assigned, they too, like everything else in the world,
are part of the cosmic universal cohesiveness.

The numbers of any residence, no matter which one
you decide to inhabit, always reflect what is and what
is to be.

You can’t just select a “good” unit number and then
“create your reality” to satisfy all your ego-self desires,
but you can use numerology to help intensify your

Key life opportunities and probabilities are hidden
within the qualities of numbers. Note that numbers reflect
quantity, such as party of five, and quality, as in he’s
number one.

It’s good to consider the building number, but the unit
number carries more importance in the case of an
apartment, condominium, office, or other separate unit
within a building.

Most people want stability in a home. The root numbers 4
and 6 are most fitting toward that desire, and there are other
numbers that are more appropriate for other conditions.

There aren’t bad or good numbers, but there are rewarding
and challenging energies associated with every number.
The Number Symbolism list below can assist you in your
understanding of the distinct energies behind the root
numbers 1 through 9. The Number Symbolism list can
also be applied toward any person, place, or thing and is
best used in conjunction with our numerology software.

Use fadic addition to reduce all building, house, and unit
numbers to a single digit. For example, 7736 = 7+7+3+6 =
23 = 2+3 = 5.

At this time, don’t concern yourself with translating the
street name, city, or any other part of the address to numbers.
Just focus on the numbers directly connected to the building,
house, and unit.

The remaining parts of the address including the individual
numbers of the original multiple-digit number also have
relative representation, but those are topics for advanced
study. Master Numbers (11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and
99) and Karmic Debt Numbers (13, 14, 16, and 19) are also
more involved subjects, as is viewing the building or unit
number in conjunction with the individual’s comprehensive
numerology charts.

With no numerology background, it’s easy to miss the
importance of number symbolism. But once you begin to
pay attention to and correctly interpret the energy behind
numbers, you begin to realize the incredible insight
available to anyone willing to take a closer look.
