The single-digit numbers, 1 – 9, are the foundation of the science of Numerology. Each of these numbers has its own personality — strengths, shortcomings, quirks — so to get a good understanding of how numbers affect us, it helps to get to know each of these numbers as if it were a person with its own unique traits. Get to know what each number means as we introduce you to each one personally!
The basics of Numerology Numerology is the universal language of numbers, and each of us was born with a set of numbers unique to us. These numbers unlock the door to the depths of our personality and reveal the way we interact with others, lessons we’ve yet to learn, opportunities we’ll be given and challenges we’ll face at specific periods of our lives — or throughout life as a whole.
How to find your Life Path number
First, reduce each unit of your birth date (month/day/year) to a single-digit number or a Master number (Master numbers are 11, 22 and 33). Next, add each of the resulting digits (or Master numbers) together and reduce the total again to a single digit, or a Master number.
For example, if you were born on October 12, 1990, you would calculate your Life Path as follows:
Month: October is the 10th month of the year. 10 reduces to 1 (1 + 0 = 1).
Day: The date of birth is 12. 12 reduces to 3 (1 + 2 = 3).
Year: The year of birth is 1990. 1990 reduces to 1 (1 + 9 + 9 + 0 = 19, then 1 + 9 = 10 and finally 1 + 0 = 1).
Now add the resulting single-digit numbers: 1 + 3 + 1 = 5.
The Life Path number in this case is 5.
