The Life Path number shows who you truly are, and how you’ll progress through life. It’s one of the most, if not the most, important of the core numbers. To get your Life Path number, you add together your entire date of birth: month, day, and year. Add them together, and keep going until you get to a single digit.
For example, someone born June 26, 1988 would add together 6 (June is the 6th month), 26, and 1988, which would be 2020. To get a single digit, add 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4, giving a Life Path number of 4 for this person. Note that if you get a Master number (11, 22, 33), you consider both the Master number and the single digit it breaks down to (11/2, 22/4, 33/6).
