Are you wondering how anyone can find out their life path number in Numerology without having a basic reading done? You’re in luck! I will give you the basic run-numerology number 7 on how to analyze your birth name and birth date to reveal your personalized Life Path number.

Below is a table which indicates the values of the full English 26 character alphabet:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

A B C D E F G H I

J K L M N O P Q R

S T U V W X Y Z

We will use this alphabet table to determine the Numerology value of your birth name. You will count and add the value of each letter in your name, which corresponds to the chart above. You will continue to add each character until you come to the sum of a single digit. For example, if your name is Ryan you will have the following equation:

9 + 7 + 1 + 5 = 23 <- Take 23 and break it into single digits, then add them.

R + y + a + n = 23

2 + 3 = 5

Ryan is a Numerology 5 name.

4 + 1 + 9 + 7 = 21

2 + 1 = 3

Mary is a Numerology 3 name.

Great! Now we can move on to our birthdate, then combine the two to find our true destiny within Numerology.

Take your birthdate and add it in a similar fashion. Each number in your birthdate must be broken into single digits, added, and broken up and added until it becomes a final digit. Let’s take a look at two examples:

Ryan was born May 5, 1982:

5 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 2 = 30

3 + 0 = 3

Ryan’s Birth Date is a Life Path 3 number.

Mary was born November 20, 1963:

11 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 3 = 32

3 + 2 = 5

Mary’s Birth Date is a Life Path 9 number.

Notice anything different about Mary’s birth date Numerology equation? If you guessed the 11, you’re right! For the purposes of calculating October, November, and December, we always use the full number (10, 11, 12) they are never broken into single digits.

Numerologists will often employ both Name and Birth Date Numerology numbers to give you an accurate reading of your life, fate and attributes that make up your unique personality. Everyone is pre-destined by a higher force and Numerology gives us a great opportunity to glean insight and understand where we belong.
