What is Your Life Path Number

Your Life Path Number is designed to reveal essential inner truths about yourself and is one of the most important numbers according to numerology. This number can highlight your skills and strengths and help you navigate any challenges you may discover throughout your life. Your Life Path Number helps to uncover who you are, gives direction and indicates which traits to hone in order to assist your journey through life.

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

Group the Month, Day and Year and add them individually until you reduce a single number for each. Once you obtain a single number for each Month, Day and Year, reduce these together to a single number.

For Example:

Birth Date: March 21, 1980

March = 3

21 = 2+1 = 3

1980 = (1 + 9 + 8 + 0) = 18 = (1 + 8) = 9

Now, add the numbers together from each group

(3 + 3 + 9) = 15 = (1 + 5) = 6

Life Path 6

* If you obtain 11, 22, or 33 do not reduce these values because they are considered Master Numbers in Numerology and have their own specific properties and meanings.

For Example:

Birth Date: April 11, 1968

April = 4

11 = 11 (do not reduce)

1968 = (1 + 9 + 6 + 8) = 24 = (2 + 4) = 6

(4 + 11 + 6) = 21 = (2+1) = 3

Life Path 3

* Keep in mind, the order of the calculation does matter. You won’t get the correct number if you add the numbers together without grouping them.

For Example What NOT to Do:

Birth Date: April 11, 1968

(4 + 11 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 8) = 39 = (3+ 9) = 7

According to Numerology, the calculation order is important and this number would be incorrect. As calculated above, for the birth date April 11, 2963, the Life Path Number is 3
