The Life Path uses the full date of birth (day, month, year) so make sure you have that information if you’re trying to profile someone else. Of all the number calculations in numerology, the Life Path Number carries the strongest vibration of your identity. Numerology gives you the tools to understand yourself in deep, apart from telling you what the influences that can affect your future at any given time are. The Life Path number conveys who you are and what you value most in life.
This number is comparable to the Sun sign in astrology, so you can see how important that is. Just like in Astrology and studying your birth chart, learning about the different Numbers will help you understand yourself and others better. That being said, you shouldn’t fall into stereotyping since millions of people live in the world, not every 9, for example, shares precisely the same traits as everyone else with that numerology characteristic.
How to calculate your Life Path Number and what it means
Numerology gives you the tools to understand yourself at more than just the surface level. Not a lot of people know theirs, so you can gain the upper hand by reading the information about the positive and negative traits of your Life Path Number carefully. Do you embody both the best and worst of your number? Do you lean more toward the negative side when you are under stress? If you currently feel unhappy, study the information about this number very carefully. Think about what changes you can make to align your current life situation more closely with the needs of this number. This number can guide you towards designing a life which suits you.

If you feel blocked in matters related to your Life Path, your life will feel bleak and difficult. On the other hand, if the basic needs relating to your Life Path Number are met, then you will find you can cope more easily with challenges.
Some people realise after studying numerology that they have been pushed into a career more suitable for another number. Numerology helps us appreciate that happiness is not “one size fits all.” A 5 Life Path Number forced to live life as an 8 will end up feeling out of place and unhappy. A fulfilling life depends on not repressing or denying the needs of your Life Path Number.
You can also use your knowledge of Life Path Numbers for insight into other people. For instance, if you know your boss is a 2 Life Path Number, then remember appearances count with him or her. Don’t arrive at the office looking too casual for “casual Fridays.” On the other hand, if your spouse has a 7 Life Path Number, then realize she or he requires time alone. Don’t interpret this need for privacy as an insult to you.
You may have a natural affinity for people with Life Path Numbers compatible to your own. On the other hand, as you continue to pay attention to numerology, you may discover there are some Life Path Numbers you dislike.
Learning about Life Path Numbers will help you understand yourself and others better. Remember, however, not to fall into stereotyping Since millions of people live in the world, not every 9, for example, shares precisely the same traits as everyone else with that Life Path Number.
