Arithmancy Lessons

Lesson 1: What is Arithmancy?
A discussion on arithmancy. How numbers can affect one's life, even without realizing it. Favorite numbers, frequency of numbers showing up (always seeing 1:11 on the clock, for example). How arithmancy can play in learning more about yourself, your life, and your future. Setting the foundation for understanding the numbers in names and places, plus how to apply them to change in your life. Students will be introduced to the numbers of arithmancy, the basics, and the archetypes.

Lesson 2: Your Home in Numbers
What the numbers in your street name and number, or house name can mean for that home. The challenges presented to people living in that place, as well as how it may help them. Students will be shown the numbers behind Hogwarts and instructed in finding the numbers in their own homes.

Lesson 3: Numbers 1-5
A closer look at numbers 1-5 and their meanings. Students will be walked through their first basic chart with their name and birthdates as well as beginning to learn the basics as to what the resulting numbers mean.

Lesson 4: Numbers 6-9, plus Master and Karmic Numbers
Like 1-5, numbers 6-9 will be examined more closely and the master and karmic numbers explored in depth. Students will work with one another to fully read the charts they have begun working on.

Lesson 5: Birthdates
A closer look at what people share in common based on the year, month, or day they were born in. An explanation into how shared numbers can affect people (covered briefly in Your Home in Numbers) and a more in-depth look at the life path number. Students will be instructed to find someone that shares a date with them (year, month, or day) and write a short essay on how they compare with that person.

Lesson 6: Destiny and Maturity
Further study and explanation on birth names and the destiny number that comes as a result. They will also learn about their maturity number, which implies their mid-life challenges and successes. There will be a discussion and essay on how the student feels these numbers actually affect them and if they have learned anything as a result.

Lesson 7: Personality and Soul
Students will find their soul and personality numbers in their names, study into the results, and discuss in an open forum how accurate they feel the results are. Students will write an essay on how these two numbers make them feel and if they find them accurate or not.

Final Exam:
For the final exam, students will be given the full name and birthdate of a person they do not know and instructed to create a full chart for them (Destiny, Life Path, Personality, Maturity, and Soul numbers) as well as to write up any advice they would give to the person said chart is for. Students will be graded on effectiveness and awareness of the chart they have created.

NEWT Levels:
Lesson 1: Philosophy
Students will discuss the philosophy behind arithmancy, the benefits and drawbacks of different reduction methods, the nine-year growth cycle, and the Universal Year. Students will be instructed to write an essay on how arithmancy has affected their lives.

Lesson 2: Pinnacle Numbers
Students will take their knowledge of arithmancy a step further and begin learning their pinnacle numbers. They will learn that these reveal their potetial achievements. Homework will be to factor their pinnacles and write what each number has taught them.

Lesson 3: Challenge Numbers
Like the pinnacle numbers, students will learn how to find their challenge numbers. They will learn that these will pinpoint their potential difficulties. Homework is the same: find the numbers and write what they have learned.

Lesson 4: Discussion
An open discussion on the meanings of Pinnacle and Challenge numbers 1 through 9. Students will, as homework, select a particular number and write an essay on how it applies to a pinnacle or challenge.

Lesson 5: Major Cycles
Students will learn about their four major cycles, based upon their date of birth. The first, formative (first 28 years). The second, productive (middle years). The third, harvest (later years). Homework will be to contact someone (family, faculty, friend, etc) who is in their productive or harvest years, find the associated number, and write how the number applies to that person.

Lesson 6: Personal Year, Personal Month
Students will find their personal year and month, much like the Major Cycles. No homework, but students will be instructed to discuss amongst one another the differing challenges and triumphs presented in the numbers.

Elective Discussion 1: Astronomy & Arithmancy
A Guest Lecturer will be invited to share in this lesson, which will be a discussion on how the stars and planets can affect and be considered in arithmancy. How they are symbols, much like numbers. Which planets and star signs correspond to which numbers. The comparison of cycles in astronomy and arithmancy.

Elective Discussion 2: Relationships
Another open discussion on compatibility with numbers, how two people may clash because of their numbers, and how to apply arithmancy to relationships (not just romantic). Students who wish to sit down and learn more will be given a compatibility chart they can use to find these numbers.

Elective Discussion 3: Names
A more in-depth lesson and open discussion on names. How the first name is your physical and mental abilities. Middle name(s) are indicative of the emotional and last names of the spiritual. Maiden, married, adopted, and business names will also be covered, as well as how one can choose a name by the numbers.

Elective Discussion 4: Daily Life
Expanding on the very 2nd lesson (Your Home in Numbers), this discussion class will be on using numbers in day-to-day life. Lucky numbers and their application to life, money numbers (good days to make money, application of vault numbers), the best days to work alone. Numbers for studying. For spiritual questing. What numbers that appear in dreams can mean.

Final Exam: NEWT students will be given the names and birthdates of two people and instructed to create their full personal charts, a full relationship chart, as well as recommendations on the future (marriage dates, suggested child names based on numbers, suggested number years to have children, etc).

(Elective Discussions can be attended by Arithmancy students at any level, but are highly recommended for students at the NEWT level.)
