LIFE PATH NUMBER calculator
The sum total of day, month and year of one’s birth is called by different numerologists the Life Path, Life Lesson, Birth Path, Birth Force or, sometimes, Destiny number.
As its names suggest, it shows our mission in life, our life work and what the universe intends for us. It indicates the main lesson we have come to learn in this world. It shows the opportunities we must utilize in order to make the most of our innate abilities.
By the vibration of Life Path number we usually choose our career, or else this vibration is expressed in our other interests.
Different features of this number are also reflected in the people and experiences that we attract into our life in order to develop all our potentials. But we are not always happy with our life lessons. We may even strongly dislike the characteristics of our Life Path number that are reflected in others, whilst we can act in complete opposition to them.
If, however, we walk by the life path that has been assigned to us, we can avoid the inner conflicts and frustrations and gradually develop in a way that is best for our nature. When we find our true place in the world, we feel at home.
The influence of Life Path number is usually stronger after thirty-fifth year in one’s life.
CALCULATING THE LIFE PATH NUMBER
Let’s take the date 10th of December 1985 for an example.
First we reduce the year number: 1 + 9 + 8 + 5 = 23.
Now we add up the numbers of day, month and year: 10 + 12 + 23 = 45 .
By reducing this sum to one-digit number we get the Life Path number: 4 + 5 = 9.
(Exception: If the sum of day, month and year turns out to be a master number 11 or 22, it is not reduced. We interpret it instead as number 11 or 22.)
Life Path number – our main lesson in life
Life Path Number describes the main lesson that we have come to learn in this world. On the basis of its vibration we usually choose our career.
