Numerology is an ancient science that has been used for centuries to help people understand themselves and their lives better. It is said that the great sage Pythagoras was the first to develop the principles of numerology, and many believe that he based his findings on the mathematical patterns found in nature. Numerology can be used to support us in all areas of our lives, from our health and relationships to our careers and finances.

The Lifepath Number
The first step in understanding numerology is to determine our Lifepath Number. The Lifepath Number is also called the Birth Number, Birth Force Number, Birth Path or Ruling Number. This is the most important number in numerology and it can be found by adding up all of the numbers in your birth date (the day, month, and year). For example, if you were born on April 5th, 1989, you would add up 4+5+1+9+8+9 to get 36. Then, you would reduce the number down to a single digit by adding 3+6=9. This is your lifepath number – 9.
The Lifepath Number is used in numerology for a deeper understanding of who you are and what kind of life you’re destined to live and what you were born to do. It helps find your soul’s calling, so to speak. Think of it as the number that tells you the path you’ve chosen to walk this lifetime and any lessons you’ve chosen to master during your life. As you fulfill your life calling this number tells you the actual experiences you’re likely to encounter.
The next step is to calculate your Destiny Number. This is the second most important number in Western numberology. It has been called the Complete Name Number, the Name Number, the Purpose number and the Epression Number. To calculate your Destiny Number, use your full, orginal birth certificate name. This number is found by adding up all of the consonants in your full name. For example, the name “John Smith” would be calculated by adding up the letters J+H+N+S+M+T+H (1 + 8 + 5 + 19 + 13 + 20 = 66). Then, you would reduce this number down to a single digit by adding 6+6=12, and then 1+2=3. The Destiny Number for John Smith would be 3.
The Destiny Number can tell you all about your potential successes in life, what you’ll be most successful doing and speaks to those areas in your life that you want to focus on and develop in order to reach your fullest potential. When you are in the process of major career choices consider combining both the Destiny and Lifepath Numbers to guide you.
The Soul Number is significant because it reveals what motivates you. This number is also called the Soul’s Urge, Heart’s Desire Number or Heart’s Desire. It shows what you need to do in order to feel content and fulfilled. In other words, your Soul Number exposes what your heart desires and how to go about achieving those things in this life.
To calculate your Soul Number add up the vowels using your birth certificate name.
The chaos of day-to-day life can make it hard to hear your soul’s quiet whispers. This is why a regular practice of yoga, meditation, qigong, or simply spending time alone in nature is so important. They help you connect with your intuition which allows your soul’s voice to be heard more easily.

The Personality Number
The Personality Number is quite important and is one of the 7 Core Numbers in your chart. Indeed its impact not as significant as the Life Path, Destiny, and Soul Numbers but it’s important even so. Your Personality Number reveals the nature of the “outer you,” or the side of yourself you want to share with others.
The Personality Number is in charge of the image you project to others and how they perceive you, rather than reflecting your true nature. Usually, the stronger characteristics of an astrology sign will overshadow the traits of the Personality Number. So, don’t worry if you can’t relate to your Personality Number!
Master Numbers are double-digit numbers that repeat the same number, for example: 11, 22, 33. Some Numerologist’s only take into account the 11 and 22 when working with your core numbers in your chart. Others include the 33. If you calculate your Lifepath Number and get an 11, 22 or 33 before digit down to 2 ,4 or 6 , this indicates a Master Number as part of your Lifepath Number.
Master Numbers can also appear in other parts of your numerology chart, like your Destiny/Expression Number, Soul Urge Number, Maturity Number and Personality Number. If you come across Master Numbers in any part of your chart, it’s worth investigating what they mean for you specifically.
Here’s an example of a Master Number showing up as a Lifepath number:
Birth date: February 2, 1987
February = 2
Day = 2
Year = 1987; 1 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 25; keep adding 2 + 5 = 7
Add the Month, Day, Year: 2 + 2 + 7 = 11
11 is a Master Number.
Your Master Number reveals many things about who you are and how you interact with the world. It can help you understand your life path and the gifts that you bring to this world. Keep in mind, though, that this number is only one piece of the puzzle. Your Master Number should be used as a guide, not an absolute truth.
Master Number 11 is often associated with spiritual awakening, creativity and inspiration. People who have this Master Number may be sensitive, intuitive and creative. They are often seen as natural leaders, but can also become overwhelmed easily if their energy is not managed properly.
Master Number 22 represents a combination of the qualities of both 11 and 4—patience, practicality, and insight. It is often associated with achieving great success in life. People who have this Master Number may have strong leadership capabilities and be gifted when it comes to problem-solving.
Master Number 33 represents compassion and nurturing energy. This Master Number is associated with healing, understanding and unconditional love. Those who possess this Master Number may be great healers and teachers, as they are naturally drawn to helping others.
Master Number 44 is associated with intellect, strength and discipline. People with this Master Number may have powerful inner resources and be adept at manifesting their desires into reality. They are often highly focused and dedicated to achieving their goals.
Master Number 55 represents adventure and expansion. Those who possess this Master Number may be drawn to making big changes in their lives and exploring new paths. They are often passionate, optimistic and creative individuals.
Finally, Master Number 66 is associated with service and healing. People with this Master Number may be drawn to helping others and creating a positive impact in the world. They are often compassionate, patient and understanding.
Overall, Master Numbers can provide an insight into one’s spiritual development and life purpose. Those who possess these numbers may be able to tap into a higher level of awareness and intuition, allowing them to make decisions that lead to greater success in life. It is important to remember, however, that no two individuals are the same and each person’s experience with their master number will be unique. Understanding what your master number means can help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself and your purpose in life.
If you are curious about discovering your own Master Number, you can use numerology charts to help you. Knowing your Master Number will provide you with valuable insight into yourself and how to best make decisions in life.
