Numerology Life Path Numbers

The Life Path Number is one of the most essential parts of Numerology reading and it is very important to know about the positives and negatives of your life using your date of birth. It is fascinating to see how calculations are made using the numbers in your birth date which is the most significant day in one’s life as it holds a lot of information of what is going to come. All this information derived can help us know more about ourselves and the life path that can be expected ahead, be it certain circumstances, problems or teachings that we may learn; everything can be in the form of a general numerology prediction according to what Life Path Number we have.

How to find your Life Path Number

The calculation of a Life Path Number in numerology is quite simple, which is the addition of the birth date, birth month and the birth year. For instance, turn the date of birth, month and the year into single digits. Say the date is 18th June 1990. We’ll need to add,

18 = 1+8 = 9
June = 6th month = 06 = 0+6 = 6
Year is 1990 = 1+9+9+0 = 19 = 1+9 = 10 = 1+0 = 1

Now we add all these numbers, namely:

9+6+1 = 16 = 1+6 = 7

So, the Life Path Number for the birth date 18th June 1990 is 7.

Thus, this is the only way to calculate the Life Path Number by adding all the numbers of the month, date and year separately into single digits first. It is important to note that these numbers have to be added individually to single-digit numbers, and not add them directly while they are still double digits which will make the process for the calculation wrong. You should not add the three whole numbers but in case of the Master Numbers because they are two-digit numbers and cannot be reduced to a single digit. For example in the case of Life Path Number with the same birth date, you cannot add the numbers like this:

18th June 1990

18/06/1990 = 18+6+1990 which will be incorrect.

To give another example which includes the Master Numbers, we will take the birth date as 29th May, 1948. In this case:

29/05/1948 = 2+9/0+5/1+9+4+8 = 11/5/22

Now, both 11 and 22 are Master Numbers and therefore cannot be reduced any further. So, we add the three numbers 11, 5 and 22.
11+5+22 = 38 = 3+8 = 11.

This again cannot be reduced further as it is a Master Number and so, the Life Path Number for the date of birth 29th May 1948 is 11.

Again for this date, the incorrect method to calculate the Life Path Number will be by adding the digits directly without converting them into single digit first, that is,

29/05/1948 = 29+5+1948 = 1982 which is not correct.

It would be imprecise to manipulate the numbers to get Master Numbers, for there is a misconception in the case of Master Numbers that they are special numbers with powers but on the contrary, these numbers include a lot of struggle and problems. One needs to have a lot of perseverance to lead such a life. Even though they do have special powers, it isn’t a cakewalk for them. The philosophy in the case of Master Numbers is that the more pain you undergo, the more you stand to gain. It is about taming the immense amount of energy that exists within the person who represents a Master Number, which is an arduous task. This can either be a good fortune or a bad one depending on how you make use of the power of the Master Number.
