The different numerology meanings are important when you are really trying to understand how to use your numerology reading. If you do not know the numerology meanings then you will not fully grasp the concept of numerology nor will you be able to put it into good use in your life. One of the most important meanings is that of the birth number.

The birth number, also called the life path number, comes from your birth date. It represents the direction for your life. It represents who you are as a person. It can tell you about yourself, many times telling you things you didn’t realize or recognize. A birth number can be used to positively influence your life and help you to find some meaning in your existence. Many people find that after discovering this, that they begin to feel as if they can now live to their full potential because this has revealed what your potential truly is.

This is easy to calculate. All you need is your birth date. This means the month, day and four digit year. You will be adding all these together to get your birth number. You keep adding the numbers together until you get a single digit or until you get the number 11, 22 or 33.

For example, if your birth date is January 9, 1979 then here is how you calculate it:

Month: January = 1
Day: 9
Year: 1979

1+9+1+9+7+9 = 36 = 3+6 = 9

Your birth number would be 9.

Here is another example where it comes out to 11.

December 5, 1992

Month: December = 12
Day: 5
Year: 1992
1+2+5+1+9+9+2= 29 = 11

It doesn’t matter if you add each of the digits separately or all together as you will always reach the same number. Here is an example using the birth date above:

12+5+1992=2009 2+0+0+9= 11

Their Meanings

For now we are going to focus on the numerology meaning of the numbers 1 to 9. The numbers 11, 22 and 33 are master numbers that hold deeper meanings and that are a bit more complex than the basic numbers. If you have a master number you can still use the numbers 1 to 9 because there is meaning in the number 2 for those with a number of 11, in the number 4 for those with a number of 22 and in the number 6 for those with a birth number of 33. For now you can refer to 2, 4 or 6 for your birth number if you have a number that is a master number. Here is a brief look at the numerology meanings for each of these birth numbers:
