Numerology is a very interesting science and helps one to know more about him/herself. Your ‘Life Path Number’ can help you to identify your skills, your negative and positive traits and thus, can be of great help in steering your life on the right path towards your goal.
It is very easy to calculate your Life Path Number. Write down your birth date and convert that day, month and year to a single digit.
If your birthday is 16 July 1962, your Life Path Number is-
(1+6) + (7) + (1+9+6+2)= 7+7+18
Numbers are from 1-9 and other double digit numbers are reduced to single digits except 11 and 22. These are called ‘Master Numbers’ and are never reduced.
If your birthday is 22 July 1962, you will not reduce 22 to 2+2=4, but use 22 as such. So, your Life Path Number becomes
(22) + (7) + (1+9+6+2) =47, which can be reduced to 11. 11 is a Master number, so it cannot be reduced further.
So, one can have one of the following Life Path Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,22.
Calculate yours and discover more about yourself.
