What is my Numerology Number

Wondering, what is my numerology number? What does that number mean? Do we all have just one number, or are there many numbers to consider?

Numerology breaks your name and birth date into several different readings. When someone asks you for your numerology number, they are probably referring to either your expression number or life path number, both of which are regarded as significant.

Expression Number
You can quickly determine your expression numerology number by converting your birth date into a number by following these steps:

Step One to determining what is my numerology number?
Write out your full name: first, middle and last names. Your last ame is your maiden name, even if you are married. Use your name as it appears on your birth certificate.

First Name:
Middle Name:
Last Name:

Step Two
Assign number values to each character using this chart:

1 - A, J, S
2 - B, K, T
3 - C, L, U
4 - D, M, V
5 - E, N, W
6 - F, O, X
7 - G, P, Y
8 - H, Q, Z
9 - I, R

Step 3
Add up the number values for each name individually.  If your name is Tim Larry Roth, your chart will look like this:

Tim 2+9+4 = 15
Larry 3+1+9+9+7 = 29
Roth 9+6+2+8 = 25

Step Four
Reduce each of those numbers down. Add the numbers together until you come up with a final number that is one of the following numbers: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11 or 22. The numbers 11 and 22 are considered "master numbers" and are regarded as special. Our example name would reduce down like this:

Tim = 15 = 1+5 = 6
Larry = 29 = 2+9 = 11
Roth = 25 = 2+5 = 7

Step Five
Reduce your name down even further by adding those three numbers together and reducing further. Our example name will look like this:

Tim+Larry+Roth = 6+11+7 = 24 = 2+4 = 6

The final number for this name is 6.

Life Path Number
You're on your way to answering "what is my numerology number?" by calculating your life path number by translating your birth date, birth month and birth year into one numerology number. Here are the steps:

Step One
Write out your birth date in numbers.

Birth Month:
Birth Date:
Birth Year:

Example: November 12, 1976
Birth Month - November - 11
Birth Date - 12
Birth Year - 1976

Step Two
Now reduce these numbers to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11 or 22

Our example birth date will look like:
Birth Month - 11 - Not further reduced because it is a master number
Birth Date - 12 = 1+2 = 3
Birth Year - 1976 = 1+9+7+6= 23 = 2+3 = 5

Step Three
Now add these three numbers and further reduce.

Our example birth date will look like:
Month+Date+Year = 11+3+5= 19 = 1+9 =10 = 1+0 = 1

Our example life path/birth date numerology number is 1.
