It is a state
We chatted with Akal about how to use yogic numerology — the analysis of birthdates — to guide your love life. First things first: Numbers can help you understand where you and your partner are coming from.

The numbers in yogic numerology each represent aspects of you that you can develop, enjoy, use, enhance and make work for you."
