If you’re new to Numerology, then the Life Path is where it’s at!
This powerful number, derived from your birth date, provides the greatest, general overview of the challenges, lessons, and opportunities that you’ll likely face during your life.
To calculate your Life Path Number, just add up all the digits in your birthday until you reach a single digit.
The formula for working out your own personal Life Path looks something like this: Month + Day + Year.
For example, if you were born on October 17, 1976:
- October = 1+ 0 = 1
- 17 = 1 + 7 = 8
- 1 9 7 6 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 6 = 2 3. Then 2 + 3 = 5.
- Sum it all up: 1 + 8 + 5 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5 (If you end up with a number 11, or a number 22, do not reduce further. Your Life Path Number is one of the Master Numbers!)

★ Life Path 2
As a person, you’re intuitive and gentle, and on a tireless quest to understand other people through your supernatural empathy.

★ Life Path 5
In Numerology, the number 5 represents freedom, change, and adventure.
As a person, you thrive anywhere you can express your lively and dynamic energy, yet crucially, you have a deep spiritual trust in the support of the Universe, to always take you where you need to go. This is one of the most flexible numbers, so variety is important to you, whilst routine and too much sameness can feel stifling.
★ Life Path 6
If your birth reveals this Life Path Number, you’re someone who’s loving, caring, land creative.

Your mind is sharp and bright, you think literally and laterally and any which way you need to!

As one of those numbers that struggle with overstimulation, ensure you factor in enough downtime and learn ways to filter out the noise!
★ Life Path 8
This Numerology creates a person who thrives when they’re climbing the ladder to success, achieving their goals and of course, earning money in return.
You have ambition, Life Path Number 8! You’re determined, hard-working, strategic and seem to have an innate knowledge of how to “play the game”.
But this is one of those numbers that also needs to learn the art of “flow”. Like the shape of the 8, your life has its ups and downs. It’s part of the ride…!
★ Life Path 9
With this Number as your Life Path, you are most certainly an “old soul” and probably somebody that other people regard as protective and safe. You’re a strong, stable and spiritual human being and manage to carry an air of experience (even when you’re actually a complete novice at something!)
As the last single-digit number on the list, the 9 also tends to deal with endings. This Numerology can have a tendency to struggle with letting go of people and things.

You have the potential to be a great leader and likely have a healing influence on those you know.
