What is the Life Path Number?
The life path number is the most significant number in your numerology profile. It determines your destiny and tells you about the unique talents and skills you bring to the world.
Your life path gives a big clue into what you can accomplish while you are here.
How to Calculate Life Path Numbers
Your Life Path is calculated using your full birth date. November 15, 1980 would be 1 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 26.
The 26 is then reduced 2 + 6 = 8.
Therefore this birthday would produce the life path number 8. Your numbers should continue to be broken down until you get a single digit. The only numbers not reduced are master numbers 11, 22 etc.
