The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth. This number is called the Life Path number and it gives us a broad outline of the opportunities, lessons, and challenges we’ll encounter in our life.
Your Life Path number is the sum of the month, day and year of your birth. For example, if you were born on July 13, 1986, your Life Path number is 8. 7+1+3+1+9+8+6=35. Then, 3+5=8. The Life Path number consists of a single-digit number, so continue adding until you reach the single-digit number.
Note the shape of the number 8, which, when rotated by 90 degrees, changes into the infinity symbol; infinite strength. Those born with the 8 Life Path are gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth. They experience the satisfaction that comes from material wealth and the power that comes with it.
The number 8, “The Master,” “The Powerhouse,” is associated with strength. Individuals with Life Path number 8 are natural-born leaders and do well in a position of authority. They are also good at organizing, have a great talent for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters (business, finance, law, real estate, science, politics), and they like being in charge and tend to be ambitious. They are likely a visionary and very good at inspiring others by their own actions.
Their talent lies not with the petty management or small goals, but with the greater vision, its purpose, and its long-range goals. People often recognize those born with the Life Path number 8 as efficient and capable, able to analyze what’s needed in any situation and to efficiently manage people to accomplish the task at hand.
If they don’t understand the real and relative value of money, they run the risk of losing it all. They must learn to bounce back from failures and defeats and learn to recognize what’s worth their time, energy and effort, too. They can be extremely determined and driven, and they can see the potential even there where others do not see it, but if an insurmountable obstacle appears, these individuals may fall into severe stress or depression and their drive may turn into stagnation.
Although you will likely butt heads with others due to your bluntness and uniqueness of vision, you feel very deeply and you can judge the character of others very well. You are also good at influencing and engaging those around you. This is another one of your strengths which can help you to move forward with success and become a great leader.
On the downside, you might be prone to being materialistic, a workaholic, egotistic, and excessively stubborn. People with a Life Path number 8 are sometimes blinded by their own vision and do not let others get close to them. On the bright side, you tend to be protective of those you love, possess great inner strength, and fantastic determination. It is important for those with a Life Path number 8 to learn patience and humility, but also to embrace their true identity and ambitions.
