How to Calculate Your Life Path Numbers Correctly

Your birthday says many things about your personality and how you will grow up to become. Elaborating on this concept more; how to calculate numerology believes that numbers and their relations with each other are very mystical & very meaningful. Some think they can predict the future with numbers, and others think they are largely symbolic in nature.


Every theory & concept has two sets of believers; those who think in favor and those who decide to reject and stand against it. To some, Numerology is a pseudoscience; and that number can’t lay a path to something greater than their own value. To others, it has the potential to deeply understand the events of past, present and future. Still, the practice holds many modern-day fans &who are into choosing lucky numbers to reinforce the possibility of controlling the outcome of situations they get in.


A popular concept among these people is “life path numbers” which helps reveal the essential truths about your personality, outlook, and challenges in life.


Numerology: Calculating My Life-Path Number?

First; take your date of birth’s numerical value, add all digits by category (year, month, day), & keep adding each of those digits together until you finally arrive at point when you are left with a single digit.


For example: Suppose your birthday is July 3, 1995, or 7/3/1995.


First, start adding the digits in the year itself, to a single digit. 1+9+9+5 = 24,and 2+4 = 6. In this case, both the month and the day are already single digits, so we can now add each value together: 6 (for the year) + 3 (for the day) + 7 (for the month) = 16. Finally, add those digits together, as needed, until you get a single-digit: 1+6 = 7.

If, during the calculation procedure, one of your group totals to 11 or 22, don’t  add those values to arrive at a single digit until the final reduction. That’s because 11 & 22 are “master numbers,” according to the numerology number calculator, which carry  their own special meanings. So, if you were born in Nov, for example, you have a master number built right in. Someone born on November 2,1960, would calculate their number as: 1+9+6+0 = 16, which adds up to to 7(1+6). Therefore, 7+2+11 (which does not reduce!) = 20, and 2+0 = 2.
