How to Calculate your Life Path Number?

Time needed: 2 minutes.

Calculating the Life Path Number is rather simple; you can use two methods which will get you to the same result. We will use the birth date 06/25/2007

  • Calculate your Life Path Number by adding the numbers one-by-one

    6+2+5+2+7, which equals 22 (a master number). Which can be reduced to 4, depending on the numerologist you talk to.

  • Calculate your Life Path Number by adding the numbers as groups

    2007 + 25 + 6, which equals 2038. Add those numbers up one-by-one: 2+3+8, which equals 13, which reduces to 4.

What numbers are used in Numerology?

We have the numbers of our birth day, month, and year. Most countries have a number sequence for citizens (in the United States, it is the 9-digit Social Security Number or SSN). We also have a phone number; if we drive a car, we have a number plate.

Each word and sequence of numbers reduces to a number between 1 and 9, and each of those numbers has spiritual meaning. The Life Path Number is the single, reduced digit of your birth month, birth day, and birth year.
