How To Calculate Your Life Path Number


i] Take your date of birth, and separately reduce each; your MONTH, DAY, and YEAR to a single digit value.

Using February 27, 1976 as an example ...

February = 2
27 = 9
1976 = 23 = 5

ii] Add these 3 separate numbers to get your Life path number

2 + 9 + 5 = 16

iii] Sometimes you will need to reduce the number once again to get your final single digit base value

1 + 6 = 7

In such cases your Life Path Number is often written as 16/7 to indicate the higher double digit vibration from which your Life Path Number 7 was derived from.

Note: Any time you encounter a Master Number (11, 22, or 33) in your calculation, DO NOT reduce it any further.

Master Numbers


Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33 are not to be reduced anytime they are found within the calculation, but are still written as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6, just like any other Life Path Number would be to indicate both the base number, as well as the double digit vibration from which that base number was derived from ... 16/7 for example 🙂

You will find that there are a few variations on how some people, and websites, calculate your Life Path Number. Most of the time, the results will be the same, however, when we come to the point of determining the double digit vibration for your number, there are differences depending on the method of calculation used. This often results in questioning not only whether or not you might have a Master Number, but also several other numbers within your Numerology Chart.

Example Calculation

Date of Birth = July 29, 1964 = 7/29/1964

[i] Pythagorean or 3 Cycle Method
Month = 7
Day = 29 = 11
Year = 1964 = 20 = 2

7 + 11 + 2 = 20/2

[ii] Straight Accross Addition
7 + 2 + 9 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 4 = 38 = 11/2

[iii] Other Methods
7 + 29 + 1964 = 2000 = 2
The numbers representing your Month, Day, and Year of birth are used to calculate your Pinnacles, Challenges, and are ultimately responsible for each of your 3 Cycles. The Pythagorean Method relies on the idea that your Life Path is based on these cycles, and so it is sometimes called the 3 Cycle Method. It is these Cycles that are added together to form your Full Life Cycle … or your LIFE PATH.

Furthermore the Pythagorean Method is stricter and more selective in determining whether or not someone falls into the category of a Master Number, giving us a more realistic and even distribution of Master Numbers regardless of decades or centuries, the other methods do not.

For those who feel that the Pythagorean Method is somehow incorrect ... and this would include mostly those for whom this method does not produce a Master Number, keep in mind that most professional numerologists use this method exclusively, and see the other methods as being incorrect.

  1. If I have 2 master numbers in my month and day do I add them or not?

    • Hi Jarica, keep the master numbers as they are, reduce your year down and then add them up together...

      11 + 11 + 2 = 24/6

    • Hi Charlotte : ) You can use the Life Path Number Calculator on this page, or even the landing page - https://seventhlifepath.com ... it does show you the calculation as well. There are some numbers just scrolling through that should not be, like 02/02/2023 = 92/11/2 not sure how you'd get the 92.

      Also noticed since the Life Path Calculator doesn't include future years you can use 2004 instead of 2022, and 2005 instead of 2023 ... they will give you the same results.

      Anyway, have fun ; )

        • Hi Tara,
          march = 3
          10 = 1
          1971 18 = 9
          Your life Path = 3 + 1 + 9 = 13/4 not 22/4
