According to the field of numerology, numbers carry distinct characteristics. As one numerology theory goes, the number that represents your birthday plays a key role in determining your personality. As with the zodiac theory of personality, this takes into account birth month as well. Interestingly enough, it also takes into account birth year.

To figure out what this means for you, you’ll need to calculate your life path number. Life path numbers are 1-9, 11, and 22. Write down your birth date in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY. You’ll be adding the digits of these numbers together.

I addition you will see an example which will make the counting more easier

## Example:

BIRTH DATE- 05/03/1996

In order to count the path number you will need to count:

0+5+0+3+1+9+9+6= 33

You need to count till you get as a result one of the next 3 numbers: 9, 11 an 22.

In this case the life path is 6.
