This is a method I’ve been fiddling around with for some time.
Again, the basis for this is a different way of adding the numbers of the name together. The conventional method says that all letters are converted using the Pythagorean method and are added across in a straight line. Each name is calculated using this method and the final totals of the names are then added together to reach the Destiny Number.
Of course, I’ve been trying to find other ways in adding the numbers together. The following method is one such way, which I call Triangular Numerology. There are several ways to make a chart using this method. I will show how the calculation works as an example.
As an example, I’ll take the name August Wahlen, an admiral from the space opera Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
The first step is to convert the letters into numbers.
We’ll work with the first name for now. Here’s the way it works: the first two numbers are added together, here being 1 & 3. This equals 4. The 4 is placed directly underneath the 1 & 3. The next calculation is 3 & 7, which equals 1. The 1 is placed beneath the 3 and 7. The idea is to add each number pair in the name and writing the reduced result beneath every pair. Here is what the first line will look like:
This process of adding pairs together is continued down the line until a single digit is reached.
The final number here is a 6.
The last name is calculated in the same manner.
August equals a 6 and Wahlen equals a 3. These two numbers are added together to equal a 9. This addition process is valid using only two numbers.
But with 3 or more numbers, the triangular method must be used. Say for example I had three names with the numbers 4, 2 and 7. Added straight across, the result comes out to be 4. But, using the triangular method:
It is a 6 instead.
August Wahlen, using the triangular system on each name separately, equals a 9. As I said earlier, there are various ways to use this system. The important thing to keep in mind is accuracy with the subject itself. That’s the real objective.
Another method of calculation is to use the method with teh entire full name, not just the separate names at birth.
Using the full name at birth, August Wahlen comes out to be an 8.
The vowels and consonants can also be calculated, using either the singular names or the entire birth name.
Another way is to first calculate the vowels and the consonants together rather than the full names. All of the vowels and consonants from both names can be grouped together, similar to the full birth name calculation. Then the results of the names are added together and reduced to a single digit.
The main problem lies in the vowel and consonant totals. Traditionally, the vowel and consonant numbers added together results in the Destiny Number. This is not the case in triangular numerology. Using the separate name method, August Wahlen equals 9 and its vowel and consonant numbers add up to 9 (4+5), however this is merely a coincidence. This is not the case with my own name at all.
Since August is a fictional character, accuracy is diminished as as far as identifying traits using the current method of calculation. Regardless, that is the goal. Since there is little experience of using this system other than a experimental basis, I presented alternate ways of using this method. It’s pretty neat.
