Personal Number

Did you know that your life path number is derived from your birth date and reveals tons of information about you and your individual life path? You are able to utilize the positive traits of your number and transform the negative aspects of your number as well. The formula to calculate your life path number is quite simple.

Formula To Calculate Your Life Path Number

  • Your Life Path number is calculated by adding up the numbers that make up your birth date
  • Break down the month, day and year to single digits by adding them together
  • Add all the remaining numbers together until you have a single number
  • Master numbers are not converted to single numbers – (11, 22, 33)


March 12, 1968

March ~ 3rd month     =  3

12 ~ 1 + 2                       =   3

1968 ~ 1+9+6+8          =  24

30 = 3     The Life Path Number is 3

    Looking at other websites, it seems to be done in a different manner. For example, using your method, I’m a 33 but using the pythagorean modern method I’m a 6.

    Your method:
    August 14th 1973
    August = 8
    14 = 5
    1973 = 20
    = 33
    Other method
    August = 8
    14 = 5
    1973 = 2
    = 15 = 6
    Which method is correct, that’s the question?
