Why Not Follow Your Life’s Path? Numerology And What it Inspires
, or the study of the symbolism of numbers, has long been a passion of mine. By understanding the significance of numbers and their relationships to events, one can better understand his or her own personality, and identify personal strengths and individual talents.
The Story Behind The Numbers
The Greek mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras, has long been heralded as the father of numerology, since he believed that everything in the universe was composed of mathematical patterns. These arranged numbers corresponded to energy vibrations. Since then, cultures such as the Chinese, Japanese, Hebrews, Egyptians and Incas have used number systems to better understand their universe.
My Numerology Story
I first became interested in numerology when a couple of friends of mine, one of whom was a well known astrologer, began talking to me in terms of Life Path numbers
. Your Life Path number is the most important one in your numerology chart. It reveals opportunities and challenges that you’ll encounter, as well as facets of your personality you’ll want to embrace or transform. This number is determined by adding together the month, day, and (full) year you were born.
How to Determine Your Life Path Number
For example, my Life Path number is “reduced” by using my birthday, January 2, 1964.
January = 1
2nd = 2
1964 = (1 + 9 + 6 + 4 = 20) (2 + 0 = 2)
So, 1 + 2 + 2 = 5
My life path number is 5, telling me that I am an “Agent of Change.” The other Life Path numbers hold the following meanings:
Leader. The number one indicates the ability to stand alone, and is a strong vibration. Ruled by the Sun. Keywords: independent, creative, original, ambitious, determined, self-assured.
