Numerology & Your Life Path Number

I've always had an interest in numbers and math, so much so that my degree is in math and economics and my masters is in economics, so I have always had a very analytical mind. But because I grew up with a very spiritual mammy and I have always been very spiritual I also have a very creative mind. But a lot of my interests are more metaphysical than spiritual, so numerology, astrology and crystals for example.

So what is numerology and your life path number? Basically is is calculated from your date of birth, and it calculates your skills and abilities, the negative traits that you must balance, and even the motivation and purpose of your life. And I can tell you, mine is right on point.

Calculating your life path number

Calculating your life path number is very simple and only requires simple addition of each number in your date of birth. For example, my date of birth is 31 October 1991.

Day : 31 Month: 10

Year: 1991

So that is 3+1+1+0+1+9+9+1 = 25, 2+5 = 7. So my life path number is 7.

We want to get our life path number down to one single number. However, there are two exceptions. 11 and 22. So if your date of birth adds to 11 or 22, you don't reduce these numbers any further.

A person can have one of the following life path Numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 or 22. Calculate yours and find out what it says about you below.

One - The Leader

Ones tend to be doers. If you are a One then you are aggressive and energetic. You want to produce results no matter what may stand in your way. You have an urge to be a protector and your dedication and passion to achieving your goals make you a natural born leader. You tend to have a lot of courage and are not afraid to try new things if you see promise in them.

Ones also generally have issues with trust. You believe if you want something done right, then you must do it yourself. Ones are also very individualistic. Ones feel entitled to respect and can become demanding when it’s not given. When this happens, Ones will attempt to force their opinions and will not listen to anyone else and can often have a hard time relating to other’s emotions.

However, if Ones can harness their natural instinct to protect into compassion and understanding, they will earn unlimited loyalty from followers.

Two - The Peacekeeper

Twos are the ultimate survivors. You are extremely resilient and often the backbone of a family. If you are a two, you are a natural born peacekeeper, whose innate urge is to diffuse situations rather than fight. Twos are often underestimated.

Twos are easily made jealous. If Twos feel under attack or crossed, they will unleash a side that is vengeful, cruel and unrelenting. You will do whatever necessary to destroy your opponent and you will not feel regret or remorse when the battle is over.

You are incredibly devoted, and you expect that same devotion in return.

Three - The Life Of The Party

Threes have a natural gift of the gab and overflow of charisma, they could sell snow to the Eskimos. If you’re a three, you’re the star of the party and liven up any room without even trying. You have a natural gift for creativity and you are well aware of it. You are a natural optimist and people are drawn to your positive energy.

Threes are often like spoiled teenagers. They are disorganized, in need of constant guidance, and blissfully unaware or ungrateful for the efforts others go through to protect them. You find yourself involved in multiple projects at a time, abandoning the old for the new with no regard for others involved.

While you are always well liked and have a large group of friends, you may find it hard to form deeper relationships, especially with a romantic partner. Threes must learn discipline and put constant effort into maintaining deeper relationships.

Four - The Organiser

Fours are orderly and base their lives on logic. You use hard work and reason to establish a solid foundation and believe any problem can be overcome with a proper plan.

Fours are trustworthy and patient people. While always dependable, their constant obedience and commitment to discipline can also make them seem boring. However, Fours often possess an entertainingly witty and dry sense of humor. You find happiness in your proven accomplishments, favoring results over any sort of reward or recognition. You are humble and can be overlooked easily, even when you are the foundation to others successes. But you don’t mind.

Fours often have narrow-minded or conventional views. You have an aversion to the unexpected and see no reason to stray from something that already works. Because of your dislike for change, you hold rules as sacred.

Five - The Free Spirit

Fives are a whirlwind of energy, constantly in need of change and stimulation. You are adaptable, smart and progressive and are very independent.

Fives change their mind regularly, but never without good reason. You cannot be controlled but you are flexible and can be converted if the argument is solid and makes sense. Fives have a healthy sense of humor and don't sweat the little things.

While you are surprisingly loyal, you can also be selfish, thoughtless and irresponsible, leaving a wake of damage for others to clean up. You are more likely to trust the wrong people. Fives wear their heart on their sleeves but they are a poor judge of character and are often drawn to eccentric, unstable people.

Six - The Caregiver

Sixes are known as the fixers. You are naturally caring and protective and you dedicate your life to fixing the problems of those around you. Sixes are the glue that holds families together and they will protect their loved ones at any cost.

You are well balanced and therefore well equipped to ground others in times of trial. However, this can also make you a bad judge of character, leading you to sacrifice yourself to the wrong people, even as those around you tell you to do otherwise.

Your loving openness makes you easy to take advantage of and your sacrificing nature will allow this to happen – however, you have your limits. Beware a wronged or angry Six, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Seven - The Philosopher

Sevens are naturally curious and as a result find themselves devoted to investigating the unknown. However, you possess all of the skills to handle this challenge. You have a refined and analytical mind that is capable of great insight.

You are charming, witty and able to present a unique spin on conversational topics. Sevens have a natural ability to learn, analyze, and seek answers to life’s important questions, which will carry them far in life.

Sevens prefer to work alone, valuing their space and privacy. However, when given too much space, Sevens can develop an egocentric, selfish and conceited streak. Sevens have the potential for enormous growth and to go far in life.

Eight - The Professional

Eights place emphasis on career, business, finances and authority. You are spiritual, but maintain a practicality and realism to your spirituality. You are ambitious, efficient, organized and disciplined and willing to take on any task. You enjoy counseling others and sharing your wisdom and often find yourself in a “coach” type role.

Eights can only flourish when supported. Eights who become too independent or are not given the necessary support at a young age rebel against everything that they are.

You have great potential for success, however, with too much independence or ego, you have an equal potential for failure.

Nine - The Humanitarian

Nines have an unending flow of love to give and they offer it to the world at large. They understand the connection between all mankind and have global consciousness. Nines are humanitarians and when it comes to helping they see no difference between a close friend and person they’ve never met. You never ask for credit and will stop at nothing to rectify an injustice.

You are often disappointed with the realities of life and especially with those around you. You have difficulty in deep or romantic relationships, as you have trouble showing your true heart.

Nines have a strong urge to help others, adding back what others have lost. However, they never ask for credit or recognition – as if they had done nothing at all.

Eleven - The Visionary

Elevens are the most intuitive of all Life Path Numbers and can sense a great deal about what’s going on behind the scenes. Because of your natural intuition and constant energy, you are likely to live a life of extremes. You form deep relationships easily.

Many Elevens tend to be self-conscious and self-criticizing. Your sensitivity and high-energy make you prone to anxiety and stress.

Elevens have similar qualities to Twos, only amplified.

Twenty-Two - The Builder

Twenty Twos, you have the potential for extreme success and power. You are well disciplined, ambitious, confident and pragmatic, all of which make you naturally able to turn dreams into realities.

You are able to see the beauty of an idea, as well as the logistics to make it a reality. While others may not always see your vision, your intuition and realism make it easy for you to build trust. You are a dreamer and a pragmatist all in one.

You often set impractical and unrealistic standards for yourself, placing a constant self-imposed pressure to succeed. You have great difficulty accepting failure. Your ego can also lead to distrust of others. You see yourself as superior and therefore lack faith in the ability of others.

Twenty Twos have similar qualities to Fours, only amplified.
