# Numerology and Your Life Path

In my previous blog “Angel Numbers,” I mentioned a series of numbers and their meanings. These numbers are also known as a type of numerology. Numerology is very complex and has many different types. Numerology is basically based on the symbolic meaning of numbers associated with your life, such as your name and date of birth. Once we learn how numerology works we can better understand ourselves and the universe. In this blog we are going to focus on finding your life path number so that you can have some insight on how to navigate your life better. Each life path number has both its strength and also the shadow side. I will teach you how to find your life path number and I will also go through the basics of each life path number.

Finding your life path number is simple, all you need is the date, month, and year of your birth. All numbers must be converted to single digits, unless the numbers are 11 or 22. So, if you were born in November, which is the 11th month, don’t convert that number to a single digit. The same rule goes for any birthdays on the 22nd of a month, or any sum totals that add up to 11 or 22. The reasoning for this is because 11 and 22 are known as Master Numbers in numerology.

Here is an example of what I mean, let's say your D.O.B. is November 17, 1987 then you calculate it like this 11+1+7+1+9+8+7=44 then breakdown the sum to the simple digit by adding 4+4=8 so if you were born on 11/17/1987 your life path number is 8. Keep on reading to find out more about each life path number.
