Life Path Number

In numerology the most important date in your life is the date of your birth. Derived from this date is your Life Path Number which identifies your skills and abilities, negative traits that you need to balance and your ideal career type.

A Life Path Number (LPN) can be obtained by adding together the numerical components of this date (day, month, year), if the result is a pair such as 11, 22, 33 or 44 these are regarded as master numbers and hold special significance. Finally add the 2 digits together to get a number between 1 to 9.

Example, 15/06/1973, this would be 113 (15+6+19+73), this would be further reduced to 5. This by definition is a number you were born with and will never change throughout your life. It demonstrates your inner nature, capabilities and provides some indication to your future direction.

Relative Life Path Numbers
People generally have more in common with those "related" to them. For example, a person with a LPN of 7 will more easily relate to those of 4, 5 and 8. Such a person will not easily relate to say a 3 who is very artistic based.
Cube showing related numbers

In the cube the adjacent LPNs are coloured yellow, the far ones coloured green. This does not mean that an LPN 7 could not have a successful relationship with an LPN 3 but generally they will be able to understand and have more empathy to those with a related life path number.

Looking at the cube you might notice that an LPN 5 is adjacent to all the other numbers. This re-inforces the social nature of the 5s, such a person generally gets on with everyone.
