Calculating Your Numerology Life Path Number

Numerology is the ancient belief system that numbers have hidden meanings which influence everyday life. There most important number in numerology is the life path number. To find an individual’s life path number, add together the numerals from their birth date, including the full year, until the sum is a single digit. For someone born March 4, 1985, March is the third month which makes it a 3. We then combine the numbers, constantly reducing to a single number ( 3 + 4 = 7 ) added to ( 1 + 9 + 8 + 5 = 23 ) for a total of 30. 30 is then reduced one more time to ( 3 + 0 = 3 ). This gives us our final Life Path Number.

In situations where the year combined by itself equals 11 or 22, we do not combine them prior to adding the month and day combination. Examples are March 4, 1975 ( 3 + 4 = 7 ) + ( 1 + 9 + 7 + 5 = 22 ) which reduced to ( 7 + 22 = 29 ) and ( 2 + 9 = 11 ).

If the life path number reached is one, the individual is likely to be a leader. They have a desire to be ambitious and independent. Due to their uncompromising nature, they are sometimes seen as bossy and selfish.
