What Is The Significance of Your Life Path Number?


Did you know that your life path number is derived from your birth date and reveals tons of information about you and your individual life path? You are able to utilize the positive traits of your number and transform the negative aspects of your number as well. The formula to calculate your life path number is quite simple.

Formula To Calculate Your Life Path Number:


  • Your Life Path number is calculated by adding up the numbers that make up your birthdate

  • Break down the month, day and year to single digits by adding them together

  • Add all the remaining numbers together until you have a single number

  • Master numbers are not converted to single numbers – (11, 22, 33)
