In numerology, your Challenge numbers show weaknesses and blocks in your life that serve to help you learn and grow. There are 3 challenges, and each have their own number. To find the first Challenge number, you find the difference between the month and day of birth. If you were born March 28th, your month number is 3 (March is the 3rd month), and your day number is 1 (2+8=10, 1+0=1). Subtract 1 from 3, and the first challenge number is 2.
To find the second Challenge number, you find the difference between the day and year of birth. If you were born on the 28th in 1989, your day number is 1 and year number is 9 (1+9+8+9=27, 2+7=9). Subtract 1 from 9, and the second Challenge number is 8.
To find the third Challenge number, you find the difference between the first and second Challenge numbers. In this example, the first Challenge number is 2, and the second is 8, so subtract 2 from 8, and the third Challenge number is 6.
The first Challenge number is an issue you’ll have in the first half of your life, and the second Challenge number is an issue you’ll have during the second half of your life. The third Challenge number is an issue and weakness you can have all of your life. Note that Challenge numbers can only be 0-8, and no Master numbers are used.
