What Does Each Number Mean in Numerology?
What does each number mean in numerology? This post will cover the meanings of life paths 1 to 9 and look at their personality traits and ideal careers.
Numerology is defined as divination based on the notion that numbers are connected with our personality traits, career paths, destinies, events, and how we react to different situations and circumstances.
Now we look a little deeper to understand what each life path numbers mean.
Not only does numerology allow us to understand ourselves and others, but it also provides a glimpse of the mystery of the universe and shows what it means to be a part of it.
The most critical number in the numerology chart is the life path number.
A life path is a single-digit number based on the date of birth and reveals our true character, destiny, career path, strengths, weaknesses, talents, and more.
Calculating the life path number is easy, and you don’t need to be an expert to do so.
All you need to do is reduce digits in your birth date until you get a single-digit number.
Let’s say you were born on December 24, 1990.
To calculate destiny number, we need to reduce December, i.e., 12, to a single-digit number (which you don’t have to do with months like September), e.g., 1+2=3.
Then, we need to reduce the day of birth, e.g., 2+4=6.
Then, do the same with the year, e.g., 1+9+9+0=19 and 1+9=10, which leads to 1+0=1.
Next is to add reduced numbers, e.g., 3+6+1.
The sum is 10, so we need to reduce it to get a single-digit number 1+0=1.
This means you are on life path 1.
Every person has their life path number.
Now that you know how it works let’s see what each number represents.
