Like Pythagoras' intoxication with the Music of the Spheres( Wisdom), the Indian Sages were infatuated with Knowledge. Many scientific truths were cognised by them in higher states of consciousness which came to be known as the Vedas. One such sage was Vararuchi, who  discovered the interrelationship between numbers and letters of the alphabet.

The concept of Name Number

These are the various numbers given to the letters of the alphabet.

A I J Q Y = 1

B K R = 2

C G L S =3

D M T = 4

E H N X =5

U V W  = 6

OZ        = 7

F P       = 8.

No letter has been assigned the number nine.

Individual Name Number - The Name Number is arrived by adding all the digits which correspond to the letters in your name. For example

P  R A S H A N  T  U P A S E

8 2  1  3  5 1  5  4  6 8  1  3  5                     Total 52

Individual Name No : 5 + 2 = 7

Here the individual Name Number is 7 & the Combined Name Number is 52.

There are effects for both the individual and the combined  name numbers in Vedic Numerology. We will deal with it in our forthcoming articles.

Personality Overview

Controller of Life - Moon

You are ruled numerologically by the luminary Moon. The main characteristic of Moon is its fickle& inconstant nature and this has already swayed your temparament. You are moody at times and this depression generally saps your vitality. The best remedy for you is to take recourse to yogic practices to overcome
depression. Have implicit faith in God. Optimism is far better than

Your inconstant nature makes you hesitant at times. You may lack  self-assertion and become indecisive at times.

If you wear a ring studded with Moonstone you can overcome the negative vibrations of this number. This ring should be worn on Monday of the bright fortnight after dedicating yourself to the Lord.

Lunarians are generally timid and accomodative. Hence they are sentimental  and oversensitive.Heavenly topics interest you a great deal. You show
inclination towards Astrology and other allied sciences.

Wealthwise you are subject to terrific ups and downs corresponding to the  lunar phases of waxing and waning. You will be subject to emotional  suffering. You like to travel. Your honesty will be appreciated by people.

Your personal magnetism will win friends and influence people. Your special  charm will offset the minuspoints caused by the fickle and inconstant nature  of the Moon.

Mental strength and courage will be adversely affected at times. The ideal  remedial measure will be to fast on Mondays consecrating yourself to the Mother Divine.

In Vedic Astrology, Moon rules the mind ( Manasthu Hinagu ). If you consider  Milton's statement " Mind is its own place and can make a Hell out of Heaven  or a Heaven out of Hell", you can visualise how important a luminary Moon
is. The Vedas averr that Moon represents the mind of the Cosmic Man  (Chandrama manaso Jatha ) and is one of the important political planets. Moon rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac - Aldebaran (Rohini), Delta Corvi (Hasta)  &  Altair (Sravana).
