Beyond the basic digits
In Numerology, your name and birth information tell you which numbers dominate your life. These numbers can tell you a lot about your own personality -- and your own future. But there are two kinds of numbers: single-digit (or "cardinal") numbers, and double-digit numbers. To go deeper into your own numero-identity, it's important to look at both.
The numbers 1 through 9 are often the result of adding together double-digit numbers to make a single-digit number (a process called "reducing"). For example, 26 can more easily be understood as 8 (because 26 = 2 + 6 = 8). But an 8 that comes from 2 and 6 has more 2 and 6 characteristics, while an 8 that comes from 1 and 7 has more 1 and 7 characteristics -- this means that although the number 8 can describe broad personality traits, there are different kinds of 8s. Because of this, many Numerology experts will write out single-digit numbers by including which double-digit numbers they come from, like this: 26/8, 17/8, etc.
So let's focus on the double-digit numbers themselves -- they're overshadowed by the single digit that they add to. So you may hear that the number 7 represents someone who is withdrawn, but someone who is a 7 because they have a 25 in their chart is less withdrawn than someone who is a 7 because they have a 16 in their chart.
