Numerology – Learn what your Life Path Number says about YOU!

Your life path number (sometimes called destiny) reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life.  It is the road you are traveling.  Your life path number is the single most important information your life purpose chart provides.  It is one of the numbers that can help you understand your life.  Your number is derived from your birth date.

Calculate your Life Path number.   Using the example below, add your birth month, day and year together.  Reduce to one number.


Example:    Muhammad Ali                    January 17, 1942


Birth Month              0+1=1

Birth day                  1+7=8

Birth year       1+9+4+2=16

Total                              25          2+5=7


Ali’s Life Path Number is 7


Life Path 1 – The Leader –You are a born leader. You insist on your right to make up your own mind; you demand freedom of thought and action. You have drive and determination. You don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way once you are committed to your goal. You assume the responsibility to be the protector and provider for those you love. You demand and respect attention and become irritated and even domineering when important things do not go your way. You need to feel in command of important undertakings, and resist supportive roles. You seek the forefront and the limelight. You are exceptionally creative and original and possess a touch of the unusual. Your approach to problems is unique and you have the courage to wander from the beaten path. You can be impatient with your shortcomings and those of others.   You do very well as an entrepreneur.  Your natural leadership abilities allow you to lead a business and make it very successful.

Life Path 2 – MediatorThe key word in your nature is peacemaker. You have the soul of an artist. You are extremely sensitive, perceptive, and a bit shy. These qualities are both your strengths and weaknesses, for while you possess enormous sensitivity to your feelings and those of others, that same sensitivity can cause you to hold back and repress your considerable talents. Sensitivity and perceptiveness are among your many fine qualities. Because you intuitively know what people want, or feel, you can be extremely diplomatic and tactful. You are also patient and cooperative. You work well with groups and somehow find a way of creating harmony among diverse opinions.  You loath conflict and will do whatever it takes to avoid it.  If there are people in your life who are fighting, you will try to fix it.  When surrounded by emotional vampires who are taking all of your energy, it is okay to walk away. Too much conflict will eventually attack your physically health. Anger is a toxin for the 2 Life Path.  2s are easy going but when they get upset, it is like a volcano erupting.  When it is all over, they are drained.  Because of this you must be careful with whom you spend your time.

Life Path 3 – The Communicator Creativity, communication and connecting with people are your strengths!  Many writers, poets, actors and musicians are born under the 3 Life Path. You are witty, possess a gift for gab, and savor the limelight. Your talent for the expressive arts is so abundant that you may well have felt drawn to becoming an artist while still very young. Your artistic abilities can only be developed, however, through discipline and commitment to the true development of your talent. Commitment, concentration and hard work are the only means of bringing forth your talent. Thanks to your gift for self expression, you can be the life of the party, and the center of attention. However, you could easily squander your talent by becoming a social butterfly. When you are not being creative and using your gifts, you will often resort to some sort of drama.  The creative 3 doesn’t do well in a standard nine-to–five job and doesn’t like working with others.  Your mind moves very quickly and when someone is slow thinking, it is frustrating for you.

Life Path 4 – The TeacherThe 4 is very intelligent.  You are always seeking truth.  4s are the first to say, “I don’t want to argue” yet they often end up in arguments.  They are honest and direct and don’t feel the need to cushion the blow.  4s need lots of positive affirmation and are afraid of criticism.  This can mean that when they have a great idea, it often lives and dies in their head because they’re reluctant to act on it.  You need to remember to “Just Do It.” You are practical and down to earth with strong ideas about right and wrong. You are orderly and organized, systematic and controlled. You are decisive and methodical employing a step by step rational approach to problem solving. Once committed you do not give up easily!  4s can be loners and don’t need a lot of people in their lives. You are not one for “get rich quick” schemes. Rather you use hard work and long hours to build a business or career – you seek to establish a solid foundation. Precise, tenacious and persevering, you have great potential for success, but only after putting out effort and overcoming the limitations you so often encounter. Justice and honesty are sacred to you. You are reliable, dependable and a cornerstone in the community.

Life Path 5 – AdventurerThe key to your personality is freedom. You love travel, adventure, variety and meeting new people. You possess the curiosity of a cat and long to experience all of life. 5s are natural detectives.  They love to find out what happened.  If you think someone is being dishonest; you will do the research to find out the truth.  You don’t like being in the dark.  You love to be involved in several things at the same time as long as you are not tied down to any one area. You like change, new things and new horizons. You make friends easily; your personality is upbeat and often inspiring attracting people from all walks of life.  Yell at a 5 and they will mentally check out and ignore you.  Boredom for a 5 can be like death.  You need adventure and excitement.

Life Path 6 – Nurturer6s are natural parents.  Most with a life path of 6 will have children.  It they don’t have children they will most often have a pet.  If a 6 doesn’t have children or a family, the job becomes their home and coworkers and employees become their family.  You possess great compassion and seek to be of service to others. You have concern for the weak and the downtrodden. You are a healer and a helper to others. You are capable of giving comfort to those in need and will frequently offer a shoulder for others to cry on. Your task in life is to develop the tools necessary to be truly helpful to others, rather than to simply be a sympathetic ear. You must find the balance between help and interference. In the same way, you must learn the delicate art of the counselor who knows when to leave the struggle to others and when to avoid taking away the necessary experiences and lessons of life. You are naturally balanced. Therefore, you are well equipped to support and ground others in times of trial.  You need harmony.  Practice speaking up when there is a problem.

Life Path 7 – The Faith/Truth Seeker – You are the searcher and the seeker of the truth. You have a clear and compelling sense of yourself as a spiritual being. As a result, your life path is devoted to investigations into the unknown, and finding the answers to the mysteries of life.  7s are great at discovery.  They’re often able to solve difficult problems, but they may not know where the answer came from. You are well-equipped to handle your task. You possess a fine mind; you are an analytical thinker, capable of great concentration and theoretical insight. You enjoy research, and putting the pieces of an intellectual puzzle together. Once you have enough pieces in place, you are capable of highly creative insight and practical solutions to problems. You enjoy your solitude and prefer to work alone. You need time to contemplate your ideas without the intrusion of other people’s thoughts. You are a lone wolf, a person who lives by his own ideas and methods. As a result, close associations are difficult for you to form and keep, especially marriage. You need your space and privacy, which, when violated, can cause you great frustration and irritation. When your life is balanced, however, you are both charming and attractive. You can be the life of a party, and enjoy performing before an audience. You enjoy displaying your wit and knowledge; this makes you attractive to others, especially the opposite sex.

Life Path 8 – The ExecutiveThe 8’s life lesson is to establish financial security.  You are gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth. You have great talent for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters. You understand the material world; you intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies not with the bookkeeping or petty management, but with the greater vision, its purpose, and long range goals. You are a visionary and a bit reckless. You possess the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest, but often they are incapable of seeing what you see. Therefore, those around you need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action and direct them along the lines of your vision. You attract financial success more than any other Life Path, but effort is required. 8s often tell the truth about what they’re thinking and neglect to edit their remarks.  Often they don’t realize their remarks are hurtful.

Life Path 9The Humanitarian – You are the philanthropist and humanitarian. You are socially conscious, and are deeply concerned about the state of the world.  You have great compassion and idealism.  You are a utopian and will spend your life trying to realize some aspect of your utopian dream, sacrificing money, time, and energy for a better world.  It is in giving that you will find much satisfaction.  You have a broad outlook on life.  You tend to see the big picture rather than the minute details.  You naturally attract people from all walks of life who can fit into your larger plans and take over the areas you find uninteresting.  The person with a 9 Life Path is rarely prejudiced or accepts social biases of people.  9’s don’t need the center of attention but people often put them there.  People often assume the 9 is in charge, and that is why they should be in charge.  9s don’t abuse the privilege. People will follow the 9 when they are doing good or bad. Your main purpose is to make a positive difference in the world.
