In numerology there are not many numbers to consider for a basic reading. Generally nowadays only the numbers 1 through 9 are used. Depending on the method you are following two additional numbers may also be considered and that’s 11 and 22. However not all methods use these two numbers. In some numerology literature there are even more double numbers that might be considered like 33 or 44. But in my research I couldn’t find much use for any of the numbers over 9 and very sparse use of the double numbers 33, 44 or beyond.

Also known as the destiny or the essence number, it is the only key number calculated from the full birthday date of a person. It is basically the sum total of the birth date number. The life path number is the most important number in your life as it lays down the path that you have to follow throughout your life’s journey. In the same way, the life purpose number is the number that is established by calculating the name of the person as seen on the birth certificate. This name is that name by which a person is called at the time of his birth.

The life path number is derived by adding the month, the date and the year of the birth of a person. The result is always a four digit number which is then reduced to a single digit number – this is actually the life path number of a person. The birth date number also defines a person’s nature and his behavioral traits through out his life’s journey. It also clearly lays down the aims of your life and the various fields of interest in one’s life. This further helps in defining one’s career and also to shape out the future. When choosing between the two, many people prefer to depend upon the life path number instead of the life purpose number. This is generally because the life purpose number is liable to changes like nicknames, change of surnames after marriages and some personal names given by close ones. But the destiny number can never be changed.

The life path number 1 indicates a leadership quality. The life path number 2 shows a spiritual quality whereas the life path number 3 possesses a creative and communication skill. The life path number 4 depicts a genius and character having cerebral excellence and the number 5 suggests that the person is adventurous and has versatile character. Now we come to the life path number 6 which suggests righteousness and a just character. A life path 7 person shows an affectionate nature as well as peaceful soul. The life path person number 8 depicts an ambitious nature striving to reach their goals. The basic nature of the life path number 9 is that they are very compassionate and have a humanitarian attitude.

The life purpose number is usually taken out from the numeric vibrations of a name. This is a very subjective thought because the names are not chosen by us. They are entirely the decision of the others. The expression number is taken out by adding all the digits of the letters a name holds. It tells us about our life’s expressions. There is another number known as the latent being number which is derived by adding only the consonants. This is also known as the personality number as it shows the true personality of a person.

Adding only the vowels and leaving out the consonants is called the Soul’s desire number of a person. The vibrations of the mind and soul are expressed through this number. The best way to take out the perfect life purpose number is to grasp all messages from these numbers and frame the main life purpose number needed to improve one’s life.

Suzi Q answers:

I don’t think I am qualified to answer about numerology even though the subject fascinates me. For what it is worth, I was born on 11/11/52. I would be curious to know what this means . I am very attracted to the number 7 (set my one and only wedding date for 7/7/77) and the number 11 which has caused quite a stir the world over: Lots of websites concerning this phenomenon as well.
