Arithmancy is the magic of mathematics used to make the better of several choices. (Trust me, its far more fun than math itself!) Arithmancy uses only a few things. It requires pencil, paper, a calculator, if wished for, and a brain. (Sorry! Just can’t stand boring literature stuff like this.) You use the chart below:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z
Then you use a name. For example, Inu-Yasha would be 95361181. No, this is not his phone number. Look at the figure below:
The number on the chart above the letter is the one that you place under the correct letter in figure 2. (Oh no! I feel like a math teacher!) Now, to make this even more complicated, add all the numbers together. Write it down. Then, separately, add all the vowels together. Record it on the paper. Next, add all the consonants together. Once again, put it down on the paper.
The problem now is that these numbers need to be a single digit. So what you do is you add the ten’s place with the one’s place until you get a single digit number (meaning less than nine and no decimals).
Now you have three one-digit numbers. 35 turns into 3 + 5 = 8. 14 is 5. Last but not least, 21 is 3.
To wrap the name deal up, the first number is the character number. The second is heart, and the third is social.
Here is the complicated part. You have to decipher which characteristics of each numbered trait fits the personality of the individual. First here are the number qualities.
ONE – This number indicates individuality. They are independent, focused, single-minded, and determined. They set goals and stick to it. They are leaders and inventors. They find it difficult to work with others and don’t like to take orders. They can be self-centered, egotistical, and domineering. They are often loners.
TWO – They are big on interaction, two-way communication, cooperation, and balance. They are imaginative, creative, and sweet natured. Peace, harmony, commitment, loyalty, and fairness are characteristic. But two also intros the idea of conflict, opposing forces, and the contrasting sides of things: night and day, good and evil. They can be withdrawn, moody, self-conscious, and indecisive.
THREE – They represent the idea of completeness or wholeness, as in the trios “past-present-future” and “mind-body-spirit.” They indicate talent, energy, an artistic nature, humor, and social ease. They are often lucky, easygoing, rich, and highly successful, but they can also be unfocused, easily offended, and superficial.
FOUR – They indicate stability and firmness. They enjoy hard work. They are practical, reliable, and down to earth; they prefer logic and reason to fantasy. They are organized and get things done. They are quite predictable. They can be stubborn, suspicious, overly practical, and prone to angry outbursts. The conflicts of two are doubled for them.
FIVE – They are unstable and unbalanced, dynamic, and uncertain. They are drawn to many things but commit to nothing. They are adventurous, energetic, and willing to take risks. They enjoy travel and meeting new people but may not stay in one place for very long. They can be conceited, irresponsible, quick-tempered, and impatient.
SIX – They like harmony, friendship, and family life. They are loyal, reliable, and loving. They adapt easily. They do well in teaching and the arts, but are often unsuccessful in business. They are sometimes prone to gossip and complacency.
SEVEN – They are perceptive, understanding, and bright, enjoying hard work and challenges. They are often very serious, scholarly, and interested in all things mysterious. Originality and imagination are more important than money and material possessions. They can also be pessimistic, sarcastic, and insecure.
EIGHT – They indicate the possibility of great success in business, finance, and politics. They are practical, ambitious, committed, and hardworking. They can also be jealous, greedy, domineering, and power hungry. They are said to be the most unpredictable of numbers and can indicate the pinnacle of success or the depths of failure.
NINE – They represent completion and achievement to the fullest degree. They dedicate themselves to the service of others, often as teachers, scientists, and humanitarians. Strongly determined, they work tirelessly and are an inspiration to others. However, they can also be arrogant and conceited when things don’t go their way.
Here is my assessment for Inu-Yasha:
Inu-Yasha is practical at times, ambitious, committed, and hard working. He can be a jealous, greedy, and power hungry. Either he excels or he fails miserably. Inu-Yasha is unstable. He is adventurous and likes taking risks. He is always on the move. He is conceited, irresponsible, quick-tempered, and impatient. He is unfocused, easily offended, and superficial.
