There are many different branches to research when it comes to numerology. Yes, it’s true, from the second you were born, your path & purpose was determined & every aspect of life up until now has a meaning, & diving a little bit into research can tell you a lot more about yourself than you think (maybe even more than the Zodiac). But one we want to focus on today is the Life Path. And, more specifically, how it can determine your compatibility with your partner.
What is the Life Path?
When you see the term’ Life Path,’ your mind probably jumps to your fate or destiny. While this is partially true, there’s actually a lot more to it than that. The Life Path is represented through a number & is essential to understanding your purpose, talents & obstacles you’ll face throughout your life. The Life Path number outlines your primary goal or mission in life, & helps to show you how you’re growing & evolving through it.
How do you calculate your Life Path number?
While there are many calculators you can use to enter online, you can also do some simple addition & subtraction to determine it.
Let’s use the birthdate May 15, 1990
To calculate your Life Path number, you want to add your birth month, day & year together. If you get a two-digit number that is not 11, 22, or 33 (which are considered master numbers), you always reduce to a one-digit number.
Here’s an example:
May = 5 (because it is the 5th month of the year)
15 = 1 + 5 = 6
1990 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 0 = 19 and 1 + 9 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1
Life Path Number = 6 + 5 + 1 = 12 and 1 + 2 = 3
Life Path Number Compatability
So, how can you find your compatibility with your partner? Well, there are a few ways to determine our compatibility. One, you can analyze your own life path & determine what it has in store for you regarding relationships, timing, obstacles, marriage, etc. & then analyze your partners.
