Intro to Numerology

I think it is safe to say that everyone has a lucky number, but why? One answer might be because numbers hold a very special meaning for individuals. Numbers, like people, take on their own characteristics. These characteristics can be understood through Numerology, which is the study of the relationship between numbers and their symbolic meaning humans assign to them.

Each number, from 0-8, has a specific meaning. How one arrives to that number is by decoding your birthdate. Read below to find your life path number!

1. First, write down your full birth date. For Example:

January 31st, 1992

2. Next, narrow down the month, day and year to a single figure by adding them up.

For Example:

MONTH: January is the 1st month of the year = 1

DAY: My birth date is the 31st - Add 3 + 1 = 4

Keep adding to narrow down to a one-digit number: 1 + 4 = 5

YEAR: The year of birth is 1992

Continue adding until you narrow down to a one-digit number: 1+9+9+2 = 21

3. Now add the resulting single figures together to get the Life Path Number. For Example:

Month=1 + Day=4 + Year=21

1 + 4 + 21 = 26

2 + 6 = 8

My Life Path number is 8
