Numerology Formula for the Life Path Number or Destiny Number

The first and most important number when calculating a Numerology chart is the Life Path or Destiny Number.  It can often be referred to under these two different titles or names, but its calculations are the same and the results have the same meaning. 

The Life Path or Destiny Number is calculated by adding up the sum total of your birth day to a single digit number.  The only exception is when your first number is a Master number of 11 or 22.  Then you incorporate both the 11 or 22 vibration plus the additional single numeric number of 2 or 4.

For example:  For someone who was born on December 12, 1969 you would reduce the date to a numeric value such as 12/12/1969 (you must use the full numeric value of the year of birth).  You would then add up the numbers like this…

1+2+1+2+1+9+6+9 = 31 = 3+1 = 4  ... This birthday reduces to a single number of 4

When you have a Master Number birthday, the primary energies they are encountering are dealing with the master number; however, how they experience it on a mundane level would also include the lower vibration number of the single digit number.

For example:  Some one born on November 18, 1944 would have both the master number of 11 plus the lower vibrational energies of the number 2. 

11/18/1944   = 1+1+1+8+1+9+4+4 = 29 = 2+9 = 11/2 …


What is the meaning of the Life Path or Destiny Number?

The meaning of the Life Path or Destiny Number is your  personal journey through life.  It reflects what you hope to accomplish in this life.  It brings into being the energies that you are working with when you came into this world.  The Life Path or Destiny Number allows for the most likely projected path upon birth and the karmic lessons you will experience in this lifetime.  Not only is it the gifts that you came into being with, but it is also the extent of your full potential and limitations on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Once you have calculated your own number you can refer to the key meanings or characteristics of number vibrations and integrate how you experience your Life Path or Destiny Number.
