# Life Path Number

Your Life Path Number is derived from your FULL BIRTH DATE, and it is considered the most important and influential number in your Numerology Chart. Life Path Number describes the nature of your life journey, the road you are traveling. It describes your traits and who you are at birth, and outlines the opportunities, challenges, and lessons you will encounter in this lifetime.

## 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 ðŸ™‚

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 + 22 = 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

Furthermore 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 â€¦ 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.See Statistical Analysis of Master Numbers from numerologyworx.com

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.

Hi,

I am trying to follow but I am at a lost.

11/11/1982 -> (11) + (11) + (1+9+8+2) -> 11+11+ 20

-> 11 + 11 + 2. Am I doing this correct? Is it , 11, 11, and 2 or 6?

Hi Tony, yes you did it correctly and so your life path number = 11 + 11 + 2 = 24 = 6

Hi, my name is Jillian. My life path number is 5.

My birthday is May 11, 1987.

What is my master number? And could someone help me understand how to get my number?

Thanks

Hi Jillian, so your day number is master number 11 ... if that is what you were asking. Your Life Path Number as you said is 5 ...

May = 5

11 = 11

1987 = 25 = 7

Life path = 5 + 11 + 7 = 23 = 5

Cheers : )

I do not mean to add a continuing question, however, after looking through the few comments that I can see, I still don't have the clarity I am seeking.

My dob is June 22, 1973.

I have had quite a few calculations that give me a life path of 3. However, being born on the 22, wouldn't that result in a life path master number of 22/4?

Aster reading everything I can find, that is the impression get. However, all calculator tell me 3. Could you provide further insight please?

After reading the 22/4 life path, I cannot help but to see that is the correct number. If so, then all of my other numbers, would they change also? I am kind of confused now and it's simple math. Lol! Can you help me please? Thank you.

Hi Cybil. Your Life Path number is calculated from your entire birth date. The 22 in your date of birth is the Day number. Your life path number is calculated as follows ...

June = 6

22 = 22 (master numbers are not reduced within the calculation)

1973 = 20 = 2

Your Life Path Number = 6 + 22 + 2 = 30 = 3

Hope that makes sense : )

After all numbers added individually result is 33. For me numbers are like impressions of perfect geometry structure of universe, so everyone too.. but few people realizes it.

Forgive me if this had been pointed out before, but I haven't read all comments :

Using what you term as the 3-cycle / Pythagorean method, one cannot get a master number 33.

As adding three "biggest" single digit numbers is 9 + 9 + 9, equals 27. That's the maximum number one would get, so within that one could get a 11 or 22, but not a 33.

So my point is using this calculation method, the master number 33 is eliminated from being attained entirely.

Am I right in this thinking? Please advice if otherwise.

Hi Una,

You have to take into account that we are not reducing master numbers within the calculation itself, as such the highest double digit Life Path number you can achieve using the Pythagorean method would be 11 (month) + 22 (day) + 22 (year) = 55.

Just to note ... we wont be able to get a 33 for the YEAR alone until all the numbers within the year can add up to 33 ... first such year would be in the year 6999 I believe.

Also if you are looking at the other popular method where you simply add all the numbers straight across, you will not be able to get the master number 33 very often from now on. For example i think the first occurrence after the year 1999 is 09/09/2049 = 9 + 9 + 2 + 4 + 9 = 33/6, whereas before the turn of the century, because we were dealing with years that included high numbers such as 1999, getting master numbers using the straight across addition was mathematically easy to achieve. This leads to large variations in the number of possible master numbers over different decades or centuries.

The Pythagorean method on the other hand is always consistent across any decade, century, or even eon. More info if interested- https://numerologyworx.com/life-path-number-statistics/

Our life path calculator does show how your date of birth is broken down so you can try and play around with it if you'd like to test out some dates : )

Thank you kindly for taking time to clarify this for me.

So, using the 3-cycle/Pythagorean method, someone born in November should stick with the 11 and not reduce it to 2; as well as someone born on dates 11th, 22nd, 29th (2+9=11) should stick to respective 11 & 22 and not reduce the numbers either; years involve more numbers I won't list these!

I am still fascinated with the mathematics that using all these different methods shown in your article, from [i] to [iv], when fully "reduced", whilst keeping or not keeping these "master numbers" during calculation, always gives the same final "reduced" number in the end!

Magic of numbers, magic of maths (keep your interest during lessons, it leads to esoteric stuff!)...

Wat is my life number

Hey, what is my life path number?

24th January, 1989

Someone said I'm a 33/5... I got 34 and some other numbers.

Thanks.

That would be

Jan = 1

24 = 6

1989 = 27 = 9

Your life path number = 1 + 6 + 9 = 16 = 7

33?

https://seventhlifepath.com/numerology/life-path-number-33/

Do you simplify the 22 in 2022 or not thanks

the year 2022 is reduced to 6 ... 2 + 0 + 2 + 2

Thanks
