Numerology has been around for over ten thousand years, with scholars using it to predict historical events. Determining your Life Path Number is a simple equation. For example, I was born on November 24, 1981. By adding 2+4+1+1+1+9+8+1 you arrive at number 27 then add 2 + 7 equaling 9. That equation shows I am a number 9. Try numerology with your date of birth and see the results below. It may be the key to who you are and the essence of your life.

Life Path 1 – The Leader

Holly Hunter (Dorri Olds)

It can be lonely at the top. Number ones must not hide from friends. This life path means you are a leader who finds self-employment preferable. There is a theory that number ones often become famous because they possess the ability to create success and manifest it easier than most other numbers. As a one, you’re likely to perform best when allowed to rely on your own devices. However, you can become overly stressed by your driven nature. Life path ones often fear they won’t find love. They often settle down late in life. Years of experience lead to finding a relationship that allows them freedom and comfort.

Famous Life Path 1 Celebrities

Famous life path number ones include these celebrities – Tom Hanks, Holly Hunter, Billy Joel, Scarlett Johansson, Magic Johnson, Wynonna Judd, Larry King, Calvin Klein, Matt Lauer, Matt LeBlanc, David Letterman, Tim McGraw, Jack Nicholson, Dan Rather, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Kate Winslet, and Tiger Woods.

Life Path 2 – The Empath

Twos love company. You will likely have many friends. You won’t like to be alone and forget about being single for any length of time. It just doesn’t sit well with you. Yours is the most feminine of all life path numbers. Look at the shape of the numeral 2. It’s easy to see its symbolic representation of a survivor with resilient force. Her shape represents leaning on her bended knee while holding her head bowed forward. Her humility and servitude seem in stark contrast to the prideful numeral 1. But, do not mistakenly dismiss her as weak or powerless. When enough pressure is applied, she becomes a mighty warrior similar to that trait in number 1s. When the numeral two is under attack—burdened with a crushing weight—she will bend as much as needed. Twos have resilience. Twos can appear overly sensitive, but they are loyal. When a two says they love you, count on it! They welcome companionship and sharing their lives with someone special. Due to their sensitivity, they are great listeners. Twos are also sincere, honest, and open, and see the best in people. A number 2 makes an excellent friend or lover.

Ah, life path number threes — my favorite. Why? Threes tend to be everyone’s favorite. Deep thinking and loving, a creative number three has many friends and plenty of others trying to romance them. Threes are optimistic, extraordinarily generous, and they’re giving souls. They see positives in everything around them. Threes are charismatic, great listeners, and are conscious of other people’s feelings. They quickly put others at ease. Working threes are best suited to creative careers. Many pursue jobs requiring travel to far-away places. Threes are dreamers, so they tend to procrastinate. This quality can be frustrating for their partners. Threes often find it difficult to make decisions. They tend to have only one true love in their lifetime. If they divorce, threes seldom remarry. After a split, they are prone to wallowing in self-pity, and can become bitter. But, life path threes are full of abundance and good luck. Though they may go solo, a three will build a new life. Threes can be happy alone. You may find them on a remote island spending their days painting and writing poetry.

Life Path 4 – The Worker Bee

Edie Falco with her dogs Sami and Niko (

The path of a number four is all about truth. Fours find it hard to lie and can find themselves in a political or legal career. Work is the center of a four’s universe. They need to be careful, to avoid the workaholic trap. Too much work can create rifts in their personal relationships. Fours always look for answers. Fours like being organized and they will put things back in their “proper place.” This is one of their strong points. They feel better able to tackle challenges if they have a solid plan in place beforehand. Frequently set in their ways, they prefer an orderly life where there is “a place for everything and everything is in its place.” Home is their haven, and if their home environment appears sloppy and unkempt, that is a sign that a Life Path 4 person is not doing well. There might be a yearning to conquer the world. When things work out, they feel over the moon. However, when their high aspirations do not pan out, they leave themselves vulnerable to disappointment that is hard to bear.

Life Path 5 – The Freedom Seeker

Kate Winslet

The path of a five is chaos and change. Fives are not always cheaters, but hooking up with 5 is a twisty road. They are the numeral of change. Fives like fun and fireworks and yearn for that excitement daily. When life isn’t throwing a party for them, they feel down. Fives are creative and do best when working for themselves. A 9 to 5 job for a five? Nyah, fuggedaboutit. Fives can show up for work initially, but post-probationary period, they lose interest. Fives are persuasive motivators hence ideal salespeople. Careers requiring travel make an excellent fit. Fives loathe routine, running from the mundane. They tend to be versatile, which makes their career choices vast. The best fit for fives is independence and being the boss.

Famous Life Path 5 Celebrities

Famous life path Fives include Nicolas Cage, Mary Chapin Carpenter, George Clooney, David Copperfield, Tom Cruise, Eminem, Tom Hanks, Larry King, Calvin Klein, Alanis Morissette, Jack Nicholson, Kate Winslet, and Tiger Woods.

Heath Ledger

The path of a number seven is often a rollercoaster. Many famous Hollywood actors are number sevens. They are deep thinkers who prefer solitude. Sevens tend to be unpredictable, leaving their partners prone to frustration. If they ask a number seven where they stand, they’re likely to get a blunt answer. Sevens are fascinating intellectuals, analytical, and intuitive, but also reserved. They may explore spiritual topics, but they do that alone. Sevens are loners, with a tendency toward pessimism and secrets. They are often aloof to hide insecurities. If your Life Path is 7, you are wise and studious. You seek truth and wisdom in all that you do and search for the underlying answers in everything. You tend to be a perfectionist, and you expect the same from those around you. Sevens can often find themselves in the best job in the world but deeply unhappy. If you’re a Seven, make sure you hang with the people who you want to, do the job you want to, and if it isn’t right – say so and move on. Don’t let it fester.

Life Path 8 – The Manager

Penélope Cruz

Those born with life path number Eight should always be in charge. Even if this were the schools’ manager after school football club, you would do well at giving orders. 8 is also the number of Karma. Often 8s will find that patterns or situations in their lives reoccur. Eights often live a life of extremes. They may come from poverty but attain wealth. The opposite trajectory is also possible. A number 8 will work diligently to achieve goals. They are leaders who thrive on hard work, and more than any other Life Path number, eights are prone to workaholism. They are wise with money, and their work ethic can lead to financial success. But the pursuit of material gains can create pitfalls. It can lead to greed and unscrupulousness. They may become so enraptured with money that they neglect their beloved friends and family.
