I'll be honest: In the realm of tools for self-knowledge and self awareness, astrology will always be my first love. But the deeper I dive into the stars, the more I'm drawn into the mysteries of multiple divination practices. One of the ones I keep coming back to is numerology—the ancient language of numbers that, like astrology and the tarot, can be used to help us better understand ourselves and the world we live in.
The easiest way to begin to understand your numerology is to calculate your Life Path Number, which is the sum of your complete date of birth. Your Life Path Number represents who you are at birth, and who you will always be. Numbers 1 through 9 each carry a different vibration, suggest different core characteristics and beliefs, and come with their own soul mission.
It’s thought that carrying a crystal associated with your Life Path Number can help you access your personal power and bring you exceptionally good luck. A great way to choose a crystal to work with (or wear!) on a regular basis!
To work out your Life Path Number, follow the simple calculation technique below (I’ve used my date of birth—April 8, 1976—to show you how):
4 8 1 9 7 6 = 35
3 5 = 8
You simply keep adding until you reach a single number—see? In my case, this equates to a life path number of 8.
