Numerology and the Life Path: What is the correct method of calculation?

To calculate the Life Path Number in numerology all you need is a person’s full date of birth and some simple math skills. Let’s get started calculating the Life Path Number. For an example we are going to use President Obama’s birth date of August 4, 1961.

First, you put that birth date in numerical form such as 08/04/1961; August is the 8th month of the year. Now we reduce the birth date. First reduce the month, then the day and finally the year all down to a single digit. This is done with simple addition.

  •  The month (08) reduces as 0 + 8 = 8
  •  The Day (04) reduces as 0 + 4 = 4
  •  The year (1961) reduces as 1 + 9 + 6 + 1 = 17, still a double digit we keep reducing as 1 + 7 = 8
  • We now have 8 for the month, 4 for the day and 8 for the year. Now add those 3 numbers together as 8 + 4 + 8 = 20, still a double digit we reduce again as 2 + 0 = 2

President Obama has a Life Path Number of 2
