Calculate Your Life Path Number

Learn how to calculate your life path number and find out what it means. Calculated from your date of birth, this number does not change and gives you an indication of what to focus on in life.

Here is some background in numerology from a previous post: What is Numerology?

Numerology uses 4 main calculations to calculate your name and date of birth into numbers. They are the life path number, soul urge number, expression number, and destiny number. You can read more detail about each of those descriptions on this page: Numerology Meanings.

Your Life Path Number

In numerology, this number is calculated using your date of birth, and thus never changes. It can give you indications of your soul’s purpose during this lifetime and what lessons are yet to be learned. It is one of the most important numbers in numerology.

Knowing the meaning of this number and its interpretations can help provide answers and guidance to many of the questions you have about your own life and if you are headed in the right direction with your personal growth and development. This number represents who you are; your strengths and talents, personality traits, and your life journey.

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

To calculate your life path number, add all of the digits together in your birthday, including the year, and reduce it down to a single digit.

For example:

If your birth date was 05/16/1943:

You would first add the individual numbers together in the month of birth. (0+5 in the example=5)

Then add the individual numbers together in the day of birth (1+6 in the example = 7)

Then add the individual numbers together in the year of birth (1+9+4+3 in the example =17. Reduce 17 down to 1+7=8)

Add the 3 answers together: 5+7+8=20. Reduce 20 to a single digit number (2+0). The life path number is 2.

What do the Numbers Mean?

Each of the resulting numbers will tell you something about yourself and how far along you are on your personal life path. It helps you have an understanding of why you are facing the challenges you are at this point in your life.

It’s good to see others using the same logic as myself for calculating life path numbers. Anyone interested feel free to double check your calculation method with my life path calculator … it follows the same logic. There are many people who believe they have a master number when infact they don’t.

Hi, Laura!
Thank you for this post! I’ve been extremely confused with how to calculate my life path number and now I know that I’m an 11! I’ve read up on it and the description of 11 fits me well.
