You free daily numerology reading is based on your authentic numerological Life Path number, which is the result of your birth month, birth day and birth year.
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.* 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 23, 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 23. 23 reduces to 5 (2 + 3 = 5).
Year: The year of birth is 1959. 1959 reduces to 1 (1 + 9 + 5 + 9 = 24, then 2 + 4 = 6).
Now add the resulting single-digit numbers: 1 + 5 + 6 = 12, , then 1 + 2 = 3.
The Life Path number in this case is 3.
* = The exception to this rule is with the ‘Master Numbers’ 11 and 22 – i.e. November the 11th month, birthdays on the 11th or 22nd, or sum totals of 11 or 22. These numbers are not converted to single digits.
Life Path Numbers 1-9
Life Path Number 1
Positive Characteristics: Individualistic and independent, showing leadership and drive. The 1 is masculine, focused, an originator and self-starter; it is also progressive, strong-willed, courageous, self-reliant and rebellious (in a constructive way).
Negative Characteristics: 1s can be stubborn, selfish, weak and undisciplined, or a pariah.
Life Path Number 2
Positive Characteristics: Sensitive, tactful, diplomatic and cooperative. The 2s tend to be peacemakers and are loving, studious and patient. A 2 may express many musical or feminine qualities and also tends to be sensual and intuitive.
Negative Characteristics: 2s are often discontent and can be seen as spoiled or lazy. They can be careless, particularly with the truth, but when criticized for their faults are oversensitive.
Life Path Number 3
Positive Characteristics: 3s are imaginative, expressive communicators and artists. They are tolerant, joyful, optimistic, inspiring, talented, jovial, youthful, dynamic … the list goes on and on!
Negative Characteristics: For as inspirational as 3s are, there is a price: they are often vain, extravagant and prone to complaining. Intolerance, hypocrisy, impatience and superficiality are par for the course when it comes to 3s.
Life Path Number 4
Positive Characteristics: 4s are disciplined, strong, stable, pragmatic, down-to-earth, reliable, dependable, hard-working, extracting, precise, methodical, conscientious, frugal, devoted, patriotic and trustworthy!
Negative Characteristics: 4s pay for their stability and pragmatism by tending toward the boring side. This may express itself with a lack of imagination, emotions, empathy. 4s may not bother to put much care into their appearance, and their social awkwardness can make them seem vulgar, crude or jealous.
Life Path Number 5
Positive Characteristics: 5s are energetic, adventurous, daring and freedom-loving. They also tend to be versatile, flexible, adaptable, curious, social, sensual, quick-thinking, witty, courageous and worldly.
Negative Characteristics: On the flip side, 5s can be unstable, chaotic, self-indulgent, irresponsible or careless. They should beware the consequences of drug abuse and unhealthy sexual tendencies.
Life Path Number 6
Positive Characteristics: 6s are responsible, loving, self-sacrificing, protective, sympathetic and compassionate. These loyal, maternal figures are domestic, fair and idealistic healers or teachers.
Negative Characteristics: A 6 can overdo its inherent protectiveness and become anxious, worrisome, suspicious, paranoid, emotionally unstable, cynical or jealous. They tend toward the conventional side.
Life Path Number 7
Positive Characteristics: 7 isn’t just a lucky number. It’s also spiritual, intelligent, analytical, focused, introspective, studious, intuitive, knowledgeable, contemplative, serious, persevering, refined, gracious and displays much inner wisdom.
Negative Characteristics: 7s can be aloof, distant, sarcastic, socially awkward, melancholic, cowardly and, when they’re at their worst, back-stabbers.
Life Path Number 8
Positive Characteristics: 8s are authoritative, business-minded leaders. They value control and tend to be powerful, but are also balanced, materially detached, successful and realistic. They end up in management positions, are efficient, capable, street-smart and good judges of character.
Negative Characteristics: The dark side of the 8 can be cruel, insensitive, violent, bullish or greedy. At their worst, 8s can become intolerant religious zealots.
Life Path Number 9
Positive Characteristics: 9s are helpful, compassionate, aristocratic, sophisticated, charitable, generous, humanitarian, romantic, cooperative, creative, self-sufficient, proud and self-sacrificing.
Negative Characteristics: 9s can end up being egocentric, arrogant, self-pitying, sentimental, discontent, fickle, cold or mentally unstable.
