I’ve always been fascinated with things like astrology, numerology, palmistry, that sort of thing. I’m not one of those that reads their horoscope every day to find out what’s going to happen, but I do find it interesting!
I think Numerology is fun, mainly because it’s the only kind of math I can do without hurting my brain. Dominee and Math do not a happy couple make.
What is Numerology?
Numerology is the study of numbers in relation to one’s destiny. Adding up the numbers in your birthday, or in your name, carry a certain significance. Numerology is based on Master numbers, which are the numbers 1-9 as well as the number 11 and the number 22. Each of these numbers has a specific meaning.
Discover your life path number
You discover your Life Path number by simplifying the numbers in your birthday and then adding them together. Each time you get a number bigger than 9, you add the two digits together (so that the number 13 turns into 1+3=4) to get a number smaller than 9. (Eleven and twenty-two are the exception!) Here’s an example.
Life Path for 12/28/1977
12 = 1+2 = 3
28 = 2+8 = 10. 1+0 = 1
1977 = 1+9+7+7= 24. 2+4= 6
Add up the final numbers: 6+1+3 =10. 1+0 = 1!
The Life Path Number is 1!
Here’s another demonstration of my own Number.
Life Path for 8/14/1985
8 = 8
14 = 1 + 4 = 5
1985 = 1 + 9 + 8 + 5 = 23. 2 + 3 = 5
8 + 5 + 5 = 18. 1 + 8 = 9
Life Path Number: 9
