Numerology 101 – How to calculate your Life Path number
There are many methods of calculating your number, but the most popular one is the Three-Cycle Method, also known as the true Pythagorean one, the oldest method of calculation and allegedly the most accurate one.
How does it work?
First of all, you have to reduce each unit of your date of birth to a Master number (11, 22, 33) or a single-digit number. After this, you have to sum up the results (digits or Master numbers).
In order to get the final result, reduce this sum the same way you reduced each unit of your birth date (to a single digit/Master number). And this will be your Life Path number.
Here are some calculation examples:
· Example 1
Date of birth: February 3rd, 1993 = 2 / 3 / 1993
2 + 3 + (1 + 9 + 9 + 3) = 2 + 3 + 22 = 2 + 3 + 4 = 11 (Master number)
· Example 2
Date of birth: March 15th, 1996 = 3 / 15 / 1996
3 + (1 + 5) + (1 + 9 + 9 + 6) = 3 + 6 + 25 = 3 + 6 + 7 = 16 = 1 + 6 = 7 (single digit number)
· Example 3
Date of birth: December 29th, 1990 = 12 / 29 / 1990
(1 + 2) + (2 + 9) + (1 + 9 + 9 + 0) = 3 + 11 + 19 = 3 + 11 + 10 = 3 + 11 + 1 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6
As you can see, it is quite simple to calculate this important number. If you find it difficult or you are not sure about your calculations, you can also try a numerological calculator. There are plenty available online and most of them are free with no strings attached. Some of them may require your email address to deliver the results, but that’s it.
If you believe in numerology, then it is important to know your Life Path number, because it will reveal to you the main aspects of your personality and your journey through this life.
Some people believe that calculating this number brings with it an element of risk, as they may find out unpleasant facts. Of course, the predictions are not always what we expect them to be, but it is better to know what is likely to happen, in order to make the best choices in life to achieve our goals and objectives. And numerologists believe that learning the secrets of numerology will help you to do just that.
