# Life Path Number

In your Numerology chart, the Life Path Number is the symbolic essence of a person`s birth date, and it is calculated based on the date of your birth.

Your Life Path Number reveals your individual personality, your most fulfilling direction. It also reveals the major lessons you are here to learn during this lifetime. Especially relevant, this number shows the opportunities and challenges you will encounter and the personal traits that will assist you on your journey.

## How to determine your Life Path Number?

Your Life Path Number is derived from the sum total of the digits that make up your birth date.

Here is the calculation method:

Write down your birth date in a numeric form (including the month, that will be a number from 1 to 12), then sum up all the numbers. First, reduce each unit of your birth date (month/day/year) to a single-digit number. Next, add each of the resulting digits together and reduce the total again to a single digit, or a Master Number. Master Numbers are 11, 22 and rarely found 33.

Master Numbers are an exception to the single digit rule. Therefore,  birthdays in November, the 11th month, birthdays on the 11th and 22nd , or sum totals of 11, 22 or 33 will not be reduce to a single digit.

## Example for calculating your Life Path Number

Date of birth : March 16th  1983 , numeric form is 03.16.1983

We sum all the numbers as follows:

Month : March is the 3rd month of the year. 0+3 = 3

Day: The date of birth is 16, reduce it to 7 (1+6=7)

Year: The year of birth is 1983, reduce it to 3  (1+9+8+3= 21,  21=2+1=3 )

Now add the resulting single-digit numbers: 3+7+3 = 13 = 1+3 = 4.
