Numerology is the study of numbers and how the influence our personality, destiny and life purpose, based on the sum of the numbers in one’s birth date and name. These numbers show a great deal about a person’s character, purpose in life, what motivates them, and where their talents may lie. The science of Numerology uses the numbers in a person’s birth date and name to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life. Numerology is used to decide when to invest, when to marry, when to travel, when to change jobs, or relocate.
How to find your Destiny Number
Use the chart below to determine the numerical value of the letters in your name.Letters are assigned numeric values from 1 to 9.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z
Once you add up the sum of these numbers, reduce it down to a single digit. For example, if the total number of your name equals 56, add the 5+6 to equal 11, and then add 1+1 to equal 2. The number 2 is your destiny number.
How to find your Life Path Number
First, reduce each unit of your birth date (month/day/year) to a single-digit number.
Next, add each of the resulting digits together and reduce the total again to a single digit or Master Number.
The master numbers are 11, 22 and 33.
If the sum of your calculation is one of these three numbers, they stay as they are and are not reduced down.
For example, if you were born on October 12, 1936, 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 1936. 1936 reduces to 1 (1 + 9 + 3 + 6 = 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.
