Numerology is a divination tool used to understand your life purpose, or path. The numbers of your date of birth vibrate and have particular meaning. While there are general meanings, a connection to spirit guides can gain information specific to you. Going within through meditation and connecting with your spirit family will provide deeper meaning.
Types of Numerology
There are three types of numerology that can be used to determine your life path number.
The Chaldean numerology system can be traced back to Babylon, which is now Iraq. The number system uses numbers 1 – 8.
The Kabbalist Numerology system uses numbers 1 – 9, attributing it only to the person’s name rather than the date of birth.
The Pythagorean numerology system also includes the master numbers 11, 22, 33, and 44. Whenever the life purpose number is calculated and one of the aforementioned numbers is the sum, it will not be reduced any further because it vibrates on a higher spiritual level.

Calculate Your Life Path Number
Numerology is simple. You only need a pen, paper, or calculator.
- Add the numbers of your date of birth. Example: November 11, 2019 is 1+1+1+1+2+0+1+9 = 16. The life path number is 16/7, or 7.
- Check number meaning for the number on the right side of the slash.
- Connect to your Higher Self or Primary Spirit Guide for deeper meaning.
The full expression, or the numbers before the reduction, has significant meaning. One the left of the slash are the aspects of what needs to be worked on or balanced in order for the life path to move in a forward motion. Check the numbers to see what they mean for you.
The Three Sisters
Numerology, astrology, and tarot are related. For the person with a 7 life path number, they need to work on being confident, creative, and nurturing in order to live in alignment with using their imagination. The Chariot is the tarot associated with 7 and the zodiac Cancer.
The seven life path is one of being focused on moving forward. They are confident in their intuition and creativity, therefore their creations are carefully crafted to share with others.
Once the life path number is understood, healing can be done to balance whatever is over or under emphasized. Meditate and connecting with spirit guides and the angelic realms will provide specific understanding.
