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 1!
The Number 1 as Your Life Path
An individual that has life path number one is a natural-born maverick. Therefore, they have passion and energy to become a pioneer of a better world. Their personality manifests with ease as they will have a strong desire to be authentic. As determined people, they embrace what is new and create what is new in life. So, they quickly become successful and easily fail. Since they drive hard in life, they overcome challenges thrown in their way and will get back up quickly when life knocks them down.
Life Path Number 1: Career
The Number 1 life path has a strong vibration with being first and individuality. These individuals want a profession that allows them the freedom to operate autonomously. Individuals with Life Path One will prefer to start new projects and businesses because they can face problems head own.
With their fearless approach and maverick energy, they can have many jobs or a long career in a field filled with activity and excitement. This person can benefit and succeed by being self-employed because they like to handle situations on their own. Whatever career path they choose, they will want to work without being micromanaged or bound by lots of rules.
However, they may suffer from their demanding and self-centered personalities in their careers. Their tendency to be ego-driven can hold them back if they become more and more arrogant. Even if they are good leaders, they will have a hard time connecting with their followers. Therefore, they will struggle with work demanding equality and focusing on partnership.
Life Path Number 1: Love
Number 1 individuals are loyal and trustworthy partners if they get to exercise and enjoy their freedom. They may over-indulge their partners with affectionate gifts and romantic getaways. They can come on strong! However, this person can have a hard time connecting with their partners on an emotional level. They do not like to become attached to partners that are emotionally dependent; rather, they feel a connection with people that hold their own ambitions in high regard.
Once the partner has gained loyalty and trust of a person with Life Path One, they can lose or damage that trust by trying to be controlling or overbearing. Individuals with a Life Path Number 1 make counter-intuitive partners because they can easily function on their own. If someone tries to throw the ultimatum, “let’s see how you get on without me!” on them, the Life Path One will respond, “sounds great!”
Life Path Number 1: Family
A Life Path One child prefers to be the only child. If there are siblings, then this child will want to be number 1 or treated uniquely. Being treated “the same” as the other children will not suit this child. The number 1 represents the “I am” or “me first” principle. They will respect fairness, but not an overabundance of rules.
If the parent is a Life Path One, likely they will be a hands-off parent, leaving the child to “fend for himself or herself” as the best way to learn and grow. This parent can be helpful at very specific times and in very specific ways, but do not excel in constant or routine engagement. Since the Number 1 is a pioneer, the family member that is a 1 will lead by example and act independently.
Life Path Number 1: Health
The physical health of a Life Path One benefits most from activity and the ability to move around freely, both literally and figuratively (in the mind). Individual and competitive sports help channel and release energy that, when pent up, causes health problems. At the core, this number wants to know its strengths and limits through exercise and competition, more so than it wants to be part of a team for camaraderie.
The mental health of a Life Path One also needs freedom, especially when it comes to making personal decisions. This is not a number that wants to make decisions for or with other people. Feeling and being able to be free to choose is paramount for strong mental health. This number, more than any other, becomes unhealthy when too close to the opposite extremes of restriction, which frustrates, or excess, which causes burnout.
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 1 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that self-promotion, pioneering, adventure, and “doing it your own way”, with integrity, is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
