Exploring Numerology

Anybody interested in numerology and how it impacts the path they take in life needs to start out by learning what their life path number is. The life path number that you have will influence your behavior, the types of skills you excel at, your personality, and just about every aspect of your life. Many people who find out about life path numbers and numerology are quite astonished once they learn what their life path number says about them, and how much of their life they actually see reflected by it. Even skeptics of numerology are often taken by surprise at just how accurate a life number's qualities predict what they are like.


What Is A Life Path Number And How Do I Figure Out What Mine Is?


Your life path number is calculated based upon your birth date. Life path numbers range from 1 to 9. To calculate what your life path number is you perform some basic math involving the month, day, and year you were born. The easiest way to explain this is by example. For this example we are going to use a birth date of 06/28/1982.

First, you add the two numbers for the month this person was born, 6 + 0 = 6. Next, you add the two numbers for the day, 2 + 8 = 10. Since there are two numbers 1 and 0 that make up 10 you break this down further by adding them together getting a total of 1. Finally you add the four numbers of the birth year 1 + 9 + 8+ 2 = 20. Once again there are two numbers so you add them together to get a final number of 2. Then you add the results, 6 + 1 + 2, giving you a life number of 9.

What A Life Number Of 1 Means


If you have a life path number of 1 then you are most likely and energetic and driven person that is always trying to move forward. You are a natural protector and are very loyal to those that you consider to be close friends as well as family members. As someone naturally driven to be a leader, people with a life path number of 1 often feel lonely since their position as a leader isolates them from the rest of a group. This can be further complicated by the fact that 1's can be very demanding and expect respect from others, when this doesn't happen they can become more aggressive.


What A Life Path Number Of 2 Means


If you have a life path number of 2 then you are likely a compassionate and nurturing individual. This doesn't mean that you are weak, in fact you are far from it. A life number of 2 means a person is more likely to compromise, to follow those that they feel are worth following, and to bend and adapt to circumstances. Instead of allowing something to break them 2's are capable of changing allowing them to thrive in a diverse array of conditions.

What A Life Path Number Of 3 Means

If you have a life path number of 3 then you are likely a creative spirit. That creativity can take the form of excelling in the arts, and it can also help 3's in a professional capacity since they are naturally charismatic making them great salesman. You are also a people person and are often the life of the party. Since the natural talent that 3's have comes to them without effort in many cases, they often feel different than most others causing them to feel isolated. Despite this the trade off of natural creative talent is well worth it making the number 3 an intriguing life number.

What A Life Number Of 4 Means

On the opposite end of the spectrum are those with a life number of 4. For 4's logic and organization rule their lives. If you are a 4 then you are probably seen by others as trustworthy and are also probably known for being patient. While 4's can sometimes be seen as a boring number, it is their ability to remain rational that allows them to be very productive and dependable. Without 4's in the world there would be chaos and society would have a hard time functioning in any productive manner.

What A Life Number Of 5 Means

If you have a life number of 5 then you are the definition of a free spirit. Unwilling to be tied down and always seeking new adventure and excitement, 5's often live remarkable lives. If a 5 ends up stuck in the same type of situation for a long period of time they will generally end up very unhappy. Because of this they seek out change and value it over stability. By their nature 5's are also remarkably adaptive giving them the ability to quickly acclimate to the new surroundings that they crave.

What A Life Number Of 6 Means

A life number of 6 indicates that you are a naturally caring person that will often put the needs of others above your own. You are selfless and strong and more than anything else you want to help solve the problems of those around you. A 6 is a very compassionate person by nature and is capable of forming strong and lasting bonds with all types of people, making them the natural backbone of family's and groups of friends.

What A Life Number Of 7 Means

A life path number of 7 means you are a problems solver and have a naturally inquisitive and outgoing type of personality. Where other people see a problem you instead see a challenge, and it is that challenge that 7's crave above all else. A life number of 7 also means that you have the unique capability of using both logic as well as creativity to serve their purposes.

What A Life Number Of 8 Means

If you have a life number of 8 then you are likely a driven person that prioritizes success and doing well in life above most other pursuits. This doesn't mean you don't care about your family and friends, it simply means that you realize that professional success will allow you to provide a better life for your family and friends. An 8 is ambitious and organized and is willing to take on challenges that most others are intimidated by, which is why they are often very successful in life.

What A Life Number Of 9 Means

A life number of 9 means that you likely have a strong moral code, and you want to help others to see the wisdom of your ways and to convert to your way of thinking and living. While 9's often strive to help others they prefer to do so from the sidelines and will often not only refuse credit for their work, they will often work actively to prevent being recognized for their accomplishments. Since 9's by their nature avoid recognition they often struggle in romantic relationships, but this can be overcome if they are aware of their nature and work to correct it.
