Mythology

Definition of Mythology

Mythology is the study of the stories which explain the culture, beliefs and other events of a particular group of people. These folk tales often explain things like how the world came into being, or what happens to the Sun after it sets, etc. They’re very valuable insights into different cultures, and they’re also relevant when it comes to understanding the human psyche.

Myths should not be confused with legends. Myths can be (and usually are) totally fabricated, while legends usually have some root in factual people or events.

Numerology is a form of divination that is based on both your date of birth and your name. Your life path number is the most important, and it is calculated using the numbers of your date of birth. Other information can be obtained by converting the letters in your name (full name at birth, nickname or common name, married name, etc) to numbers, and then interpreting those numbers.
