Your life path number is the most common reading and the best place to start for a better understanding of yourself. Your life path number (or “Birth Path”) is different for each year. To obtain your life path number for the current year add the year, the month and the day you were born.
eg. If you were born on 16th of May and the year was 2014, you would add 1+6+5+2+0+1+4 = 19
Keep adding until you reach a single digit number. 1+9 = 10
Keep adding to reduce it to a single number 1+0=1
In this example, your yearly number for 2014 would be 1. You keep this number for the entire year.
Your true “Life Path Number” is obtained by adding your birth year, the month and the day you were born then reduce them to a single number. This is your true road or path that is set and unchangeable for the person and is used by numerologists to describe your journey through life and what you can successfully accomplish.
Master numbers which are 11, 22, and 33 are considered a more advanced version of their counterparts. The number 11, an offshoot of the number 2, is usually considered more intuitive, to the point of psychic ability. The number 22 is very often considered the master builder, and is full of vision and hard work. The number 33 is the most influential number and is called the master teacher.
