Numerology is the study of the mystical relationship between a number and certain events.
It's also the study of the numerical value of letters in various words, names and ideas.
Ordinarily, people use numerology to figure out their life paths by analyzing the sum of their birth month and day. (For example, my birthday is March 16. So, my number would be 10, as 3 + 1 + 6 = 10.)
But it turns out, the energy in just the day of the month you were born is an even stronger indicator of the outcome of your life.
Here's how your birthday can totally predict the rest of your life:
