Numerology numbers make up a powerful system that goes back thousands of years. There are basic principles in numerology, such as destiny numbers and life path numbers, that can be calculated to add dimension to a psychic reading. You may recognize these numbers, without yet actually knowing what they are. It’s possible that you notice them in your life a lot. It is also possible to calculate your life path number with numerology.

## What Is Numerology?

Numerology is the belief in the relationship between numbers and the universe. Numerologists believe that an occult, divine or mystic relationship exists between a number and one or more coinciding events. They differ from psychic tarot card readings in that, while the tarot cards themselves present data, numerologists rely on numbers that have been somehow determined, based on a client or other variable.

## How Do You Calculate Your Life Path in Numerology?

Calculating your life path number involves basic mathematics. Your starting point, as with life itself, is your singular date of birth. Consider how one with a birthdate of December 21, 1975, would perform the calculation:

• December is the 12th month. !2 is broken down into 1+2 = 3
• The day is 21. This is broken down into 2+1 = 3
• 1975 is broken down into 1+9+7+5 = 22, which is then broken into 2+2 = 4
• Add the three numbers: 3+3+4 = 10, which is then broken into 1+0 = 1
• Thus, this person’s life number is 1.

If your life path number is 1, you are a goal-oriented person who is full of purpose. You bring determination and dedication to achieving goals and solving problems. Hard work and resolution are among your defining characteristics.
