Numerology: Does your birth date decide your fate?
It’s an ancient branch of wisdom similar to astrology - but instead of looking to the planets for guidance, numerology finds meaning through numbers. It’s believed that the date on which you are born is the most important figure in our lives, and can completely shape our future. We’re joined by Kaitlyn Kaerhart as she explains this method of predicting the future, as well as telling Dermot and Rochelle what their own birth dates mean.
Numerology is the ancient belief system that believes in the power of numbers. It's rooted in the fact that your date of birth determines your future. You can use your date of birth to calculate your 'life path'. You do this by writing down your date of birth and then reducing it to a single digit. For example someone born on 01/02/2001 - 0+1 =1 / 0+2 =2 / 2+0+0+1 = 3 / 1+2+3 = 6. Your 'life path' will be one of 9 different numbers, or one of three 'master numbers' - 11,22,33. - Dermot is a 'builder' and Rochelle is a 'nurturer'.
