Numerology:
The World of Numerical Divination

Okay, what is numerology?

If you are familiar with the world of astrological prediction, then it’s time to try your hand at numerology! Numerology is a divination tool that helps look at your existence from a new perspective. Life’s journey, an often confusing, but enjoyable ride, can be clarified with this unique practice.

Similar to astrology, in that it reveals the likelihood of established personality traits, interests, and inclinations towards certain behaviors, numerology focuses on calculating and simplifying numbers.

How often have you seen repeating numbers or made a wish at 11:11? Are you ever driving, then look down and realize you have 62,222 miles on the odometer? What about seeing 555 for the fifth time in a single day? These numerical synchronicities are signs and symbols, but also numerology in action.

Numerology is capable of revealing pivotal aspects of your world. Change is difficult for most of humanity because it takes a lot of self-reflection and understanding. Once you acknowledge the blocks standing between you and your goals, healing can occur, and you will be able to move forward towards your goals.

In all honesty, discovering mysterious truths about yourself is SUPER interesting. Being about to explain parts of your being that you were unable to put into words gives you a sense of self-confidence. Investigating your being is fun and opens up doors you never knew were hidden within.

Math, really?

As an English teacher, I understand entirely that math can be intimidating to many people, but don’t let it deter you from this path! Divination often uses mathematical calculations combined with the interpretation of symbols. Math can be fun and useful, but honestly, if you can add, then you’re more than qualified. Numerology calculations are straightforward when explained clearly, plus, I have some tools here to help!

After the mathematical calculations and simplifaction process, your final number(s) represents a certain vibration. Hidden within this numerical vibration, you will find some profound truth about your life’s themes.

What are the calculations?

The first numerology calculation we will cover is the Life Path Number. This number represents a lot about who you are as a person. It reveals your strengths, weaknesses, interests, talents, and mannerisms.

To find this number, write down your exact date of birth using numbers only. For instance, if you were born on June 19, 1989, your first step would look like this:

6-19-1989

Now, the aim is to come up with a single-digit number (unless you get an 11 or 22 master number) by reducing your birthday until you’ve calculated your single Life Path Number. It should look something like this:

6+1+9+1+9+8+9=43

4+3=7

So, if you were born on June 19, 1989, your Life Path Number is 7. The math was not too bad, right?

Let’s try one more to make sure…

You were born on March 1, 1981.

3-1-1981

3+1+1+9+8+1=23

2+3=5

The Life Path Number for March 1, 1981, is a 5.

If you are still unsure of your math or prefer to check your work for accuracy, use the Life Path Number calculator below. 

What do the numbers mean?

Once you find your Life Path Number, you might be wondering what the number actually represents.

What can you possibly divine about yourself with this single number?
