The Study of Arithmancy is an elective course at Hogwarts and can therefore be taken by third year students and above. Though I will be happy to discuss the subject with any first and second years!

What is it?
Arithmancy was derived from two Greek words - arithmos (number) and manteia (divination). It is the study of divination using numbers. It can be used to predict the future. In this class you will be studying the branch of magic that is concerned with the magical properties of numbers. Someone who practices Arithmancy is called an Arithmancer. Arithmancy is a method of divination by numbers first used by the ancient Greek wizards. Each number has its own individual meaning and significance. The past, the present and the future can be divinated through numbers. However Arithmancy can also be used to understand someone's life path and personallity.

I want this class to be fun for everyone but I must insist on the following rules:-
*If you miss a lesson you must catch up on the work within 3 days or before the next class
*All homework (and there will not be much of it) must be completed by the deadline
*No chatting in my class, you can do that in your common room!
*If you are going to be late for a lesson tell me before hand, failure to do so will result in DETENTION!

Classes will commence as soon as I have confirmation of attendance from all members

All references and materials will be provided... please bring at least one functioning brain though... preferably your own.

As our first assignment we will be calculating the three main numbers that can be calculated from your name, the heart, social and character numbers.

The Character number is calculated using all of the characters in your name, the heart using only vowels, the social aspect is determined with the consonants.

The letter to number correlations are as follows:
1 – A, J, S
2 – B, K, T
3 – C, L, U
4 – D, M, V
5 – E, N, W
6 – F, O, X
7 – G, P, Y
8 – H, Q, Z
9 – I, R.

You add all of the relevant values together until you reach a single digit so for example:

My character number would be:

6 6 6 d e v i l e s s
6 6 6 4 5 4 9 3 5 1 1

=52

5 + 2=7

My Heart number would be

5 + 9 + 5= 19

1+9= 10
1+0= 1

My Social number is:

4+4+3+1+1= 13
1+3=4

Character:7
Heart: 1
Social: 4

Please post your answers in a similar format, you may use either your user name or your real name.

If your user name contains numbers use these to calculate the character number.


In the next lesson I will be discussing what these figures mean and the following assignment will be studying how naturally lucky you are by comparing these numbers against your date of birth. Any problems please contact me =)
