Our numerology life path number is the very foundation or essence of us as beings. It represents our TRUE selves (not who our Mama’s and society want us to be).
Our numerology life path number can help us know:
- What our soul is here to experience
- The energy associated with our birth
- What potential challenges we will face in life
- Your life purpose (yeah, I thought this one would get your attention :)
Whoa! Wait? Can a number really teach me all of that?

And it’s easy to calculate… seriously, you can do so in about the same time it takes to brew a K-Cup. Here’s how:
How to Calculate Your Numerology Life Path Number
Our date of our birth is no mistake. We came to this crazy planet at the ideal time with our unique energy for the evolution of our soul and the world.
It makes sense then that we use our FULL BIRTH DATE to determine our numerology life path number.
All you need is a pen (preferably a sparkly one) and paper:
Write out your birth date numbers. If you were born on September 18, 1992, write:
0 9 1 8 1 9 9 2
18 (day of your birth)
1992 (year of your birth)
Add all the numbers up:
0 + 9 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 39
If your numbers add up to an 11 or 22, STOP. The 11 or 22 IS your Life Path number.
If your numbers add up to anything but an 11 or 22, keep adding/reducing until you get a single digit, like this:
Take the 39 and add the numbers together: 3 + 9 = 12
12 is still not a single digit and is not an 11 or 22, so we reduce again: 1 + 2 = 3
3 is a single digit, so we stop.
A person whose birthdate is September 18, 1992 has the numerology life path of 3.
Voila, done! Next, let’s talk about what to do with this information.
