Just like astrology, numerology holds some important clues into your lives. They can help us recognize what we have been right or wrong about.
Numerology holds a lot of secrets about our inner selves. It could reveal different aspects of our personality that we had been previously unaware of. Our lifepath number is one of the things in numerology that reveals interesting facets of our personality, the seen and the unseen bits. It can be calculated easily by reducing our birthdate to its numerical value.
For instance, if you were born on July 4, 1990, you'd first identify the separate values of the day, month, and year: July is the seventh month, so its number is seven. Your day of birth is four. Add up all the digits together, i.e., 7+4+1+9+9+0 = 30. Add up this final number to get a single digit that is your lifepath number. In this case, 3. If any of the values are in double digits, add them up to get a single value. For eg: If you were born on October 12, 1980, this is how you would find your lifepath number. 1+0+1+2+1+9+8+0=22. Add 2+2=4, and that would be your life path number.
Numerologist Felicia Bender told Refinery 29 that numerology "provides you with what your optimal expression is and also what your tendencies and obstacles will be." If you want to know more about your lifepath number, you can calculate your lifepath number here.
This is what your lifepath number says about your hidden traits:
You are a dedicated person who goes after their goals and many people look up to you for your leadership. But, what is not known widely about you is that you are also creative. Your goals and dreams sometimes might feel a little restrictive for the creative part of your soul. You might struggle internally to find a balance between the two halves that make you whole. When you are able to marry both sides of you, you will be able to find inner peace.
You are a sensitive and intuitive person in tune with other people's and your feelings. You know what your heart wants but you struggle with the logical part of yourself. You are also someone who is supportive. However, you might be struggling with finding motivation yourself at times. You are secretly hoping that others understand your boundaries intuitively because you will give more than you ask for. You gravitate towards those who have a more positive outlook than you to feel inspired.
Those with lifepath number 3 are blessed with social skills. They attract people even when they are not trying. It keeps them in demand and engaged. You might have multiple projects you want to focus on and that might make you feel scattered. "So much to do, so little time" may be something you struggle with. It might be hard for you to dedicate yourself to one project at a time and people may see it as you being non-committal. You might benefit from scheduling and prioritizing.
You are a hard worker who knows what you want. People know you to be consistent and responsible. However, they may not be aware that you crave for security, which is your driving force. They only see you as a practical and solid person, but can't see the insecurities and vulnerabilities that drive you. It's possible that you faced a few challenges in early life and want to ensure that your future goes smoothly.
You are one of the most rational people but you are also very flexible. You are open to seeing other points of view and accepting others. People may think that you are somewhat distant emotionally but that's only because you have boundaries. When you truly like someone, they become a part of your inner sanctum. You are very non-judgemental of the people you like. You likely gravitate towards those who are as open as you.
You are someone who works directly or indirectly towards finding lasting security in your life. You find the people who give you a sense of warmth and make you feel protected. However, on the outside, you might come off as prickly at times because you are easily overwhelmed. If a difficult situation arises, your natural instinct may be to withdraw until you can find a moment of calm. You are also compassionate and generous and you want people to know that.
You are likely someone who focusses on justice, truth, and righteousness. Your life is all about the big wide world and the issues in it. You care about your family deeply but you know that if you can make the world a better place, you are making it better for your family too. You are many things and kindness is one of the biggest parts of you. You have a calming and supportive word for everyone in your life. You feel at home when you are mentoring someone.
You are an intellectual who likes to think in-depth about things that are happening locally and globally. You are able to see patterns in events and may be good at teaching things as well. You are also an exacting person who wants the perfect standards in all that you do. Those who work with you might be a little overwhelmed by how well you are able to get everything done. You are welcoming of others but you hate socializing in loud environments. You are likely more at home in nature.
You are someone who commands respect wherever you go because your sense of fairness is that strong. You want to right all the wrongs in and around you, and the world at large. You are also a charismatic person and people are easily attracted to you. You are a leader and might even have a large group of people who take you very seriously. You want to be there for them and help them but sometimes you get lost in trying to achieving some superficial things.
