Recently there has been a lot of emphasis on life path numbers. Could this just be another craze? Is this something reliable? With ready assistance from tarot cards, crystals, and tea leaves, what could a life path number add to anyone’s well-being? With some general knowledge, I decided to dig a bit further and after a little investigation, I found some surprisingly interesting information to share with you.
What is a Life Path Number?
Life Path Numbers can determine strong and weak points in relationships, work and life including what we would be best to pursue and be successful at. In a way, it is the comparison to what a sun sign would mean, astrologically speaking. We have this set of skills and attributes on which we can base our life, like a numerological signpost. Next question might be, how would one deduce their personal Life Path Number? For this I’ll refer you to the Psychic Source Birthday and Name Numerology Calculator. And, as you will see, it is actually quite easy to figure out.
Numerology can be like a well. The deeper you search, the more depth will be discovered. So many further questions arose. Once you calculate your Life Path Number, what do you do with it?
What Do I Do With My Life Path Number?
To illustrate, let us now follow a particular life path number and see how this might work. July 17, 1974, is the birthday of Allison, one of my clients. Referencing the handy calculator, her life path number would be a 9.
Through most of her childhood and schooling, Allison had been a quick learner getting good grades through elementary school and college. She had gone on to start her own business assisting clients with their particular design needs. From the start, Allison had no issues gaining client trust. Her business grew until one day she was offered a position at a huge well-known corporation. After some deliberation, she decided to take the leap. From the get-go, she felt ill at ease with the new company’s patriarchal lifestyle and encountered many uncomfortable moments. As a 9, we can see she was an expert at helping people, going all out whenever possible. She was also extremely gifted at determining their needs. Little by little, the mettle she didn’t know she had surfaced, enabling her to persevere in her corporate job. And in the end, the bosses began seeing her way of thinking as an asset. Her life path number foretold all these strengths and assets. Innately she knew this but had to learn to recognize her strengths in order to grow into her unique position within the company structure.
Although astrology can be a suitable partner to numerology, the two are also fundamentally different. For instance, the sun sign in astrology depicts a person’s personality, while the life path number reveals the inner workings of that particular human being. This is basically what makes you “tick.” In other words, the real-life lessons you are on this planet to learn.
The Meaning of Every Life Path Number
What if My Life Path Number Doesn’t Describe Me?
People continually ask, what if my Life Path Number simply does not describe me accurately? What does that mean? Research shows that each unique life path number has a lesson to be learned from it, although sometimes it can be hidden deep within. You see our Life Path Number was determined by us before we began this life, while we were living on the “other side.” It follows that sometimes we may forget that lesson, or we simply don’t relate the knowledge of what we’ve learned to our current circumstances.
Remember always, in not recognizing the situation, we cannot learn from it. Therefore, we feel “alienated” from our life path number. Simply know that sometimes when we engage in life, we do not recognize the lesson we set for ourselves. It is best to at least acknowledge, be patient, and move ahead. As we grow and develop further, the lesson will become clear and show itself in time.
Which Life Path Numbers are Most Compatible?
When it comes to compatibility among Life Path numbers, there is actually no clear-cut answer. However, there is a trend and a direction to this. Let us take a brief look at a few of the Life Path Numbers.
Life Path Number One can do very well with Life Path Number Four. These two numbers have like energies, resonate well, and generally work well together. They clearly understand the importance of a work ethic and will allow for that in each other. In the right circumstances, these two could become embattled in their striving to achieve the means to an end. This could make for rocky sailing. However, a Four will cave to the super strength of One, creating resentment, unless they can talk this out, giving credence to each side/other.
Life Path Number Five, our freedom-seeker seems to work best with Life Path Number Three, the emotional artist, as each likes to give the other freedom to live their own life within the relationship. They are so similar that Number Three can be upbeat and fun, but not always mindful of results, while Five is more social but also more restless. They can, in the worst circumstance, perpetuate each other’s anxieties, as both love to be in the spotlight. This could lead to jealousy and terribly uncomfortable competitiveness. If these two continue to talk out their issues, all should be well.
Life Path Number Eight is the perfect match for Life Path Number Two. Number Eight is perhaps the most loyal of all the Life Path Numbers. Although they are extraordinarily strong-willed, alternately, they are extremely emotional and loyal in relationships. Number Two brings an extremely high level of emotional strength to this partnership. Together they are a force to be reckoned with.
These are just a few combinations, there are many more to be explored. So for the very best, all-around information, please call your favorite psychic specializing in numerology, to get a more complete overview of compatibility between Life Path Numbers.
When all is said and done, Life Path Numbers can be combined with other tools to determine our best path forward. For example, numerology and astrology go hand in hand and can be useful in determining the most romantically compatible zodiac signs for each life path number.
My Guides tell me, nothing is set in stone. As it is, this life is a learning process, a school of sorts where we get to make our decisions, and therefore set our own path forward. And after all, this decision-making process is a compilation of where we came from (our parentage), who we are (our nature), and where we are in time (spiritual).
So consciously use your life path number if that suits you. The key is you. As always, follow your own intuition.
