They know you won't hold back, but will always be pushing forward into the unknown... into new territories. You want to be at the forefront, for you can sense the urgency of a new idea and wonder why no one else is doing anything about it. You are a natural leader. Your wish to create, achieve, and make yourself felt to the world around you should be a source of pride and joy. Try and be gentle with those around who don't have your far reaching sight and pioneering spirit. Life will see to it that you are on your own. You must develop and use this leadership.
Life path number 2. You have an innate concern and regard for others and the world around you. Yours is a life of cooperation and companionship. You seek and can give love, and marriage will be very important to you. In all things you will seek to cooperate. The peacemaker or coordinator, you can sense the urgency in the world around you and are moved to respond to these needs while others may be oblivious to them. The key for you is to work with a given situation, with "what is" rather than originate something new. Yours is a genius for adaptation and modifying. You have a sense of responsibility that is unrivaled and this allows you to know and respond to the pressing needs of people and situations -in general.
Life path number 3. You will find yourself an indispensable ingredient in the lives of those around you. A human catalyst, you will find solutions to both your own problems and those of others. Perhaps a career in the arts or in the communication or entertainment media will be enjoyed. You have the gift of being social and you enjoy talking, writing, and travel to the utmost. It will be important for you to know that you are what many situations and people need and are seeking. You are a solution. So enjoy and express yourself and above all, share yourself with others. Let them come to know and make use of your ability to solve and ease situations or problems that exist. Give of yourself.
Life path number 4. You are a "doer" above all and can always be counted on to see a project through and get the job done. The fact is: you love to work! You need not fear a lack of money in life for you are ready, willing, and able to take on projects at a moment's notice. The world can sense this and will provide you with all manner of tasks, jobs, and responsibilities in general. You are loyal, trustworthy, and will become the foundation or backbone of any endeavor you undertake. You are an organizer and don't mind long hours or tedious work. You crave security and your home and family are all important. You find inspiration in the mundane and those around can only marvel at your stick-to-it-ness.
Life path number 5. You are always the center of attention and the "favorite child" of the world around you. A love of change, travel, the unknown, and the unexpected keep you on the move and on the brink of respectability. You would make an excellent entertainer and artist. No humdrum life for you. The "nine to five" route is the last thing you would ever choose. You need time and room to explore the world, for you have adventure in your soul and freedom on your mind. You must keep the feelings of others somewhat in view, for you have a tendency to "love em and leave em" and you can cover in a day what might be a lifetime work for another. Above all, you must be free, you must stay with the changes, go with the flow.
Life path number 6. Organizational ability? You've got that. Also, a sense of responsibility that won't quit. A sense of the public and the world around you finds you aware of social and economic conditions and you have the insight and the stick-to-it-ness to respond to unwanted conditions and to do something about them. A married life is just what you've always wanted and still want. Until that takes place you will be operating at less than full power. A home and family will provide you with the foundation you need to reach out into the community and make yourself known. You have a keen eye for detail and are a natural for management and supervisory positions. You will always have to fight off promotions.
Life path number 7. You are one who dares to ask questions and wonder about the "why" of this world we live in. You like to think and ponder. Time spent alone is often a happy time for you. A life of teaching others is perhaps unavoidable for your eye is fixed to a distant star and the rest of us never can get enough of that type of news. Your dreams are the stuff poetry and drama are made from and your thoughts are from the worlds of philosophy. You will seek to know your self and to penetrate into the deeper mysteries of life and science. You can be aloof and too much to yourself. Others can but marvel at what you are up to. You are on an inner and spiritual quest and the mysteries of life are your domain.
Life path number 8. Accomplishment and tangible power are very important to you. "Pie in the sky" is not your cup of tea. You want it now and in great abundance and you are more than willing to work very hard to get it. You will easily rise through the ranks to assume control at the very top levels of management. You have real "guts" or grit and a tangle with you is something no one wants a second time. You are for real, know exactly what you want and have every intention of getting just that. You may have a tendency to be less than exacting about the means that you use to reach the end goal you have in mind... so be careful in that area. Otherwise, you have every one's blessing to take charge and do your thing.
Life path number 9. You always see the larger picture and the global view is the one that appeals to you. You're a deep free thinker and your mind easily gets around in the realms of philosophy and the spirit. Your body probably likes to roam too and may enjoy lots of travel during your life. You have a love of truth and honesty that is unequaled, and can't tolerate things mean or short sighted. You are kind, gentle at heart, and extremely giving or generous. You provide shelter for all the strays of the world. Your mind's eye is ever focused on the distant star. You have an inbred love of poetry, music, and the arts. You make for a good marriage and have a deep understanding and great tolerance of others.
If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality -- the reality of human life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life.
Even at that moment, you were a person with your own unique character, as unique as your DNA. Everything that is you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to begin. Your entire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. You have ultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potential completely, or to make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends upon your effort and commitment. You make the decisions to fulfill, to whatever extent, the potential life that exists within you. That is your choice. In this sense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of your birth.
You can calculate your own Life Path Number quickly and easily. Your Life Path Number is established by your complete date of birth. The goal is to take your date of birth and convert it down to one single digit of 1-9. The first step is to convert your birth month to a single number. Second, you convert the day of your birth to a single digit. Third, add the total digits of your birth year and reduce this number to a single digit. Lastly, you take these 3 single digits and add them until they equal one single digit of 1-9. Here is an example:
Psychic Sylvia Browne was born October 19, 1936. This is written as 10/19/1936 in numerical value. Here is how you break down the birthday numbers:
