Your date of birth and its meaning: let the numbers speak!

You have probably read your horoscope from time to time, which is based on your zodiac sign, that is, on your birthday. But did you also know that the exact date of birth, which is made up of day, month and year, is of great importance for your personality and even for your whole life?

Just as in astrology the ascendant, which is related to the exact time and place of our birth, has an important meaning for our personality and our life, in numerology the exact numerical composition of our date of birth plays an important role for our entire existence.

One often says “typically Leo”, “typically Virgo” or “typically Libra” ... In other words, one ascribes certain characteristics to the various zodiac signs. But thanks to the science of number interpretation - numerology - one can learn a lot more about the individual personality and the possible life course of a person.

You should never underestimate the power of numbers. Because with the help of numerology you can calculate your life number based on your birth number, which gives you information about your personality and your life path. Your life number helps you to freely develop the talents dormant in you and to successfully master the challenges that you will face on your life path.

How do I calculate my life number?

Don't worry: you don't have to be a math genius to calculate your life number. Simply adding is enough to determine the life number.

Your birth number is made up of your birthday, month and year of birth. To calculate your life number, you simply create the cross sum of your birth number, i.e. the numbers of your birth date. The two-digit sum that results from this (the root number) is then reduced to a single-digit number by adding the numbers again. That sounds more complicated than it is. The calculation of the life number can best be explained using a concrete example

Let's say you were born on October 10th, 1978:
Cross sum: 10/10/1978 = 1 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 8 = 27 (root number)
27 = 2 + 7 = 9 = your life number

The result is always one-digit, i.e. the life number is between the numbers 1 and 9. However, it can happen that the result of the above calculation for a certain date of birth has two digits:
Example: You were born on October 20th, 1978:
Cross sum: 10/20/1978 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 8 = 28 (root number) 28 = 2 + 8 = 10
In this case, you have to add the checksum to this two-digit result in order to determine your life number.
In our example 10 = 1 + 0 = 1.

However, there are two exceptions: If the sum of the above calculation results in the number 11 or 22, the cross sum is not calculated again for these numbers (1 + 1 or 2 + 2): In this case, your life number is 11 or 22.

Numerology: what is the meaning of my date of birth?
Now that you have laboriously calculated your destiny number, you are naturally wondering what the specific meaning of your life number is for you.
Our fate, our life, is predetermined by our date of birth: It sets the basic requirements of our personality with our positive and negative characteristics, but also for the spiritual, emotional and physical potential that is in us.
Just like your zodiac sign, your life or destiny number provides you with information about your character, your strengths and weaknesses. It gives you helpful hints about the relationship you have with other people - be it in love, friendship or at work. In plain language: It reveals your real “you” and your basic characteristics.
The life number also provides information about what you want to achieve in your life and the means by which you will achieve your goals. It tells you which path in life you will take and how you can really find fulfillment in your life. Your personal life path results from your fate number.
In short: Our life number reveals to us our fate, but also the basic tendencies of our personality and the potential dormant in us.
