Gematria and magic

Post by L.J.Hex »

As I've told elsewhere, I have a liking for symbolism and numerology. And numbers are symbolism on their own. Symbols are the language of subconscious mind and as such I believe it is a powerful tool for energy work and magic is all about energy.

I got an idea as I have been learning about the use of Gematria in English language. The people who made English grammar were well aware of this as English words are so full of interesting Gematria values. And I'm positive this is not a mistake. So my idea is this, while writing down a spell or carving in on an candle, I thought I would start adding different Gematria values of key words I want to emphasize.

There are many Gematria ciphers to use, the most common ones being ordinal and reverse ordinal. These are very simple to calculate, English ordinal is as easy as A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on, ending with Z=26. Reverse ordinal works the same in reverse, Z=1, Y=2, X=3 ending with A=26. These two are basic math and only take few moments to calculate for single words.

Then how about counting Gematria values for key words, searching for fitting moon phase and a day which has corresponding numerology? Again there's many ways to count the value for dates,for example: 1+1+1+2+0+1+9=15. Another would be: 1+11+20+19=51. If I would be planning a spell for today, I would then find words with value of 51 or 15 or better yet, both.

Anyway, I thought this would be interesting topic for anyone who likes numbers. :flyingwitch:

We had a member once upon a time who was very into this, so much so it was difficult to communicate with him unless he was talking about everything in relationship to the number value. Anyway you might find some of his stuff if you use the search bar for Gematria.

There are more systems
I like one stated by wiccans such as Valiente, Moura
1 A Sun
2 B Moon
3 C Jupiter
4 D Uranus
5 E Mercury
6 F Venus
7 G Neptune
8 H Saturn
9 I Mars
1 again or 10, 20 if you like J ....

This way you can see how people's names affect them. I,R are of 9 or Mars
You can see people that have at least three times I or R in their name as hyperactive... doing sports, managers, hyperactive artists...

Loreena Isabelle Irene McKennitt has how many? 5 of them. She started career by busking and even made her own label, quite determined with such driving force of these nineish letters.

If you have a Hebrew name like Susan you should check out their system as well.
interesting that you count letters up to 26
that's the value of famous Biblical God

Hey SL! Yea, I know about several dozen different ciphers and its easy to make new ones. :D I think this is what they call planetary cipher, but I need to check. Very interesting. Take a look at this I made below, I checked my name using this and it seems the sun(Six 1's.) and mars(Four 9's) dominate.

1 A J S Sun
2 B K T Moon
3 C L U Jupiter
4 D M V Uranus
5 E N W Mercury
6 F O X Venus
7 G P Y Neptune
8 H Q Z Saturn
9 I R Mars

I like the Egypt numbers

57772

and even if you count the first and last you get 7. Although that wasn't how it used to be called it's still legitimate course of events that it happened like this.

Hey, do you remember the 20s ?
Like Andre Breton, and surrealists doing short films? The weird innocently looking dance called swing?

I wonder if this decade will be like that. :flyingwitch:

“Hey, do you remember the 20s ?

I cannot say on that end, but on another end, there will be a massive explosion of breathing hd new life into old films.

A little shy on the definition. 1920's

I know our stormofwind has a strong connection with the 20's.

Sitges starts and ends with Solar number, so it unveils a lot of hidden and renders it visible.
It is on 6 letters, therefore Venusian and highly artistic.
Total numeral value is 25 thence 7 - seclusive aaaand mystical.
