In numerology, life path numbers are the sum total of your birth date. A life path number represents who you are at birth and the native traits that you will carry with you throughout your entire life. The life path describes the nature of this journey through life.
Determining Your Life Path Number
To determine your life path number, convert the month you were born into a single digit (ie: the month of November is the 11th month: 1 + 1 = 2 therefore 2 will be the single digit number you will use). Then, add this single digit number to your birth day.
Next, add the individual numbers of your birth year together. The individual digits of your birth year are added together as necessary to reduce the sum to a single digit of 1 through 9. Or, to the numerology “master numbers”, 11 or 22. Master numbers are not reduced any further.
ExampleIf your birthday is April 3rd, 1957, add the month (4 since April is the 4th month) to the day (3 since you were born on the 3rd day) plus the total of the digits in the year (since you were born in 1957, 1 + 9 + 5 + 7 = 22).The sum total (3 + 4 + 22) equals 29. Split this number in half (this gives you 2 and 9). Then add these two digits together (2 + 9 = 11). Your life path number in this example is 11.Be sure to add the full year, not just the last two digits (ie: 1957, not 57).
