Life Path Number FOUR Meaning

It is rather easy to calculate your life path number; it is simply the total of your birthday reduced to a single digit.  If you were born on 11/13/1981, then your Life Path number would be 1+1+1+3+1+9+8+1=25=7.  The Life Path Number is the leading number in the life of an individual.  Your Life Path Number determines the skill sets and the natural talents a person will excel in, gravitate towards, and attempt to master.  Now, let us learn about the Life Path Number 4!

The Number 4 as Your Life Path

An individual that has life path number four is hard-working and concerned about stability. Therefore, they have passion and energy to build lasting results, maintain systems, and do what is necessary. Their personality develops through their efforts to establish themselves in the world.

As reliable people, they embrace traditions, security, financial stability, and logic. Therefore, they become successful through persistence. Since they endure to succeed in life, they overcome challenges thrown in their way by outlasting the challenge and using tried and true methods to succeed.

The Life Path Number 4: Career

The Number 4 life path has a strong vibration for stabilizing and building foundations. These individuals want to be in a profession that allows them to keep the work flowing and build a work legacy. Individuals with Life Path Four will prefer to work alone or on teams if the work is consistent, predictable, and needed.

With their devotion to what lasts, they stay committed to jobs because they can count on the work being the same day in and day out, with changes coming slowly and wisely. This person can benefit and succeed by having measurable skills constructing and/or repairing systems, mechanisms, and objects. Whatever career path they choose, they will want to work towards security presently and into the future.

However, they may find it necessary at times to make or be part of significant change. Their tendency to be more concerned with keeping things the way they are, can lead to a problem of resisting improvements, which can make them obsolete. Even if they want to be “completely safe”, they will often find changing times uncomfortable. Therefore, they will struggle when they feel rushed or forced to change.

he Life Path Number 4: Love

Number 4 individuals are reliable and responsible partners who want predictability in their relationships. They may require far less romance than other numbers if they feel stable.  They prefer to make sure everything necessary for a safe home is working and money is going into savings to show and experience love. Therefore, this person can have a hard time with partners who want risk and unpredictability in their romance.

At their best, they are the most tender and supportive lovers.  Once the partner has gained the loyalty and trust of a person with Life Path Four, they have a lifetime of support in joyous and difficult times.  The key phrase for this number in love and relationship is, “I am here for you no matter what”.  They will say it and want to hear it.

he Life Path Number 4: Family

A Life Path Four child prefers to live by consistent rules, so they work well as an only child or a sibling.  If there are siblings, then this child will want to work with his or her sibling(s).  They will want to their parents to be consistent and predictable.  The number 4 represents the “I establish” or “we endure” principle.  They will respect usefulness and function, and want the rules of the family to be logical, consistently enforced, and wisely established.

If the parent is a Life Path Four, likely they will be a “vegetables before dessert” parent, encouraging responsibility, caution, and honesty. This parent engages powerfully when acting as a tutor or trainer to the child as an apprentice. Since the Number 4 is a “builder”, the parent that is a 4 will prefer to manage the household and the money to make sure the family is safe and secure.

he Life Path Number 4: Health

The physical health of a Life Path Four benefits most from building and maintaining strength through repetition and training.  Cooperative, individual, or competitive sports work just fine so long as they get to keep themselves fit.  Repetition is pleasurable; practice is as enjoyable as execution.  At the core, this number wants to feel the strength of his or her own body on a regular testing and trying basis.

The mental health of a Life Path Four also needs consistency; experiencing chaos or ongoing change is detrimental to a number 4.  This is a number that wants to keep its mind following tried and true patterns.  Having a consistent life philosophy and psychology is essential for their mental health. This number, more than any other, becomes unhealthy when shaken up too often or dealing with inconsistencies from people and in life.

Other Numbers and Their Importance

You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Life Path Number.  No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Life Path Number is the foundation.  Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States.  The number of your full birth name, as recorded on a birth certificate, is your Destiny Number.  Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.

How to Use Numerology in Your Life

Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships.  If the Number 4 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that saving money, having a reliable skill, and building consistent patterns is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
