How to calculate your personal number and your life path?

Numerology allows everyone to know themselves better. It is also a divinatory art. Let’s discover together the numbers that govern our lives.

Numerology is the study of the numbers that govern our lives. This study provides various information on the future, on destiny but also on the character of each. How to highlight these numbers and decipher them? This is what we will find out.

Numerology, the universal language of numbers

Our date of birth but also our first and last names carry within them a system of numbers which allows us to better understand existence. Thus numerology offers us the opportunity to determine:

  • our personal number to have indications on our personality, on our temperament;
  • our life path which brings us information about our destiny out of any context;
  • the value of our first name in order to better measure the forces resulting from the past, from the heritage that governs us.
  • But this universal language also makes it possible to better understand the unfolding of the coming year. And much more, as we will see.

What are the fundamentals of numerology?

However, before going any further, we must know the correspondences between letters and numbers to be able to determine the numbers behind our name and surname.

Now that we have this information at your disposal, we can get started.

How to calculate your number in numerology?

We all have a number that matches us. It’s called our personal number. To find it, we have to perform a calculation based on the letters of our birth name. Thus, a person with the birth name of DUPONT, will be able to know his personal number according to the correspondences exposed above and by adding them:

D = 4, U = 3, P = 7, O = 6, N = 5 and T = 2 which gives a total of 4 + 3 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 2 = 27 or 2 + 7 = 9.

Dupont’s personal number is 9.

Now let’s move on to the path of life.

How is the path of life calculated?

Calculating it is very easy. It is necessary, in fact, to know the date of birth of the person concerned. Here, the letters of the name and surname are not involved in the calculation. For example, if the person was born on January 16, 1968, you must add all the numbers 1 + 6 + 1 (corresponding to January, the first month of the year) + 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 = 32, or 3 + 2 = 5. This person therefore has a life path corresponding to the number 5.

Another example: if the person was born on December 1, 1986, proceed as follows: 1 + 1 + 2 (corresponding to 12, that is to say December, the 12th month of the year) + 1 + 9 + 8 + 6 = 28 or 10, or 1 + 0 = 1. Here, we are in the presence of a life path 1.

Let us now come to the value of the first name in numerology

How to calculate the value of his first name?

The first name in numerology gives indications on the character of the person, on his relationship with the outside world but also on all the inheritance that he will have to assume during his existence. Essential information! Note that this number is also called a hereditary number.

To obtain it, we must therefore take each letter of the first name, see their correspondence and add them up as we could with the last name for the personal number. Let us take the example of Anaïs. What do we get? A = 1, N = 5, A = 1, Ï = 9 and S = 1. The sum is then (1 + 5 + 2 + 9 + 1) 18, or 9 (1 + 8). The value of Anaïs first name is 9.

How do you know your current year?

Numerology also offers the opportunity to know in broad outline the successes and difficulties that will punctuate a year. To know the predilections, it is necessary to embark on a calculation which takes into account the date of birth (as we have seen for the path of life) but also the year of interest. An example to make everything clear:

Imagine that you were born on March 21, 1971 and that you want to know the events that will mark your year 2020. The calculation is therefore 2 + 1 (day of birth) + 3 (corresponding to the month of March) + 1 + 9 + 7 + 1 (year of birth) + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 (reference year) = 28, or 10, or 1!

Other information that numerology can provide

Numerology is not limited to the personal number, the life path, the value of the first name or even the current year. It is in fact possible to obtain other information such as the “achievement number” which gives indications on the professional path (it is the sum of the figures corresponding to the consonants of the name and first name), the “expression number” which gives indications on the qualities and the defects of the interested person (sum of the figures resulting from the name and first name), or the “intimate number” which reveals the capacities of the person and the ideals, the dreams which carry it (sum of the vowels name and surname).
