Numerology = Your Career Path

Numerology is the study of numbers and how those numbers have a profound impact on our lives. From how we act to who we attract in a relationship to the personal powers we hold, the numbers bestowed upon us from birth have an influence on us a day-to-day basis.

Once you know where your passions lie, it becomes easier to filter through positions that might cause more stress than reward for your unique personality. You deserve a job that appreciates your challenges and what you bring to the table, while it also helps you hone in on and expand your talents.

One of the easiest ways to learn more about yourself and what you crave from your career is by taking a look at your Life Path number. And, as a bonus, once you’ve learned how to calculate your Life Path number, you can help your friends and family learn more about their own unique personalities by calculating theirs!

Discovering your Life Path number encourages you to follow your heart, to follow your bliss. Once you embrace your personality and gifts, you’ll find it much easier to choose positions based on passion rather than necessity.

Calculate your Life Path Number

Life Paths are based on your date of birth.

Take for example John, who was born on December 26, 1978. To calculate the three stages of development for John, take the sums of the month, the day, and the year as follows and if a sum is 10 or greater, add the digits again until the sum is a single digit:

1. Life Path = Month + Day + Year

2. Life Path = 12 + 26 + 1978

3. Life Path = (1 + 2) + (2 + 6) + (1 + 9 + 7 + 8)

4. Life Path = 3 + 8 + 25

5. Life Path = 3 + 8 + (2+ 5)

6. Life Path = 18

7. Life Path = (1 + 8)

8. Life Path = 9

John’s ultimate Life Path is 9. The Life Path represents what his innate capabilities (and weaknesses) collectively can achieve with great success if John exercises his will in a way to nurture those capabilities and manage those weaknesses.
