You are unsure of your number


The exceptions are 11, 22, and 33 which in numerology are considered "master numbers". Most two-digit numbers are not important in numerology. The 11, 22, and 33 are important and special because they have a special power and energy. Together they represent the 3 phases of creation: vision, construction, and sharing. The 11 is the visionary, the 22 the builder, and the 33 the sharer, the giver.

What is my life path number?

How do you calculate life path number by name?

Calculating your life path in numerology is mainly based on your date of birth, rather than your first name. The life path is one of the key aspects of numerology and represents the path you are meant to follow in this life. However, if you're interested in the numerological significance of your first name, you can assign numerical values to each letter of your first name (according to certain numerology methods) and add them together to obtain a number that can then be interpreted.

Here's a simplified example of how to calculate your life path from your date of birth:

  • Divide your date of birth into day, month, and year.
  • Add up the numbers for the day of your birth.
  • Add up the numbers for the month of your birth.
  • Add your year of birth.
  • Add the three results obtained above.
  • Then reduce this number to a figure between 1 and 9, continuing to add up the digits. For example, if you get a total of 15, you would add 1 + 5 to get a life path of 6.

Susan Taylor’s insights: Pay attention to the numbers

Your life path is calculated from the date of birth and represents the vibration of your personality. This number is even one of the pillars of your life itself, since it carries your life mission on earth. However, it does not constitute a being in its totality and does not pretend to summarize it! For each one of us has a multitude of subtle and evolving facets - which can also be studied thanks to numerology - that make us unique beings.
