Origin of Numerology
Although Numerology is looked on as a separate discipline today, it had been initially an integral part of Astrology in ancient India, Sumer, Babylonia and in several other ancient civilizations. However, it had later developed as a separate subject and it was known as Shabdha Shastra in Ancient India.
Moon and its influence on man
Although the Moon is a satellite of the earth, the ancient Indian seers have reckoned it as one of the nine planets or Navagraha for purposes of Astrological calculations.
In Astrology, the Moon is described as the Queen of the planetary system and as the ‘planet’ having the greatest influence on man and the terrestrial phenomena.
