What Your Birth Path Number Means for YouHitList
Move over, horoscopes, ‘cause we’re talking birth path numbers – which numerologist Jim Ventura gives us insight into!
How to Calculate Your Birth Path Number
To find your birth path number, start with the number of the day you were born. Jim explains you’ve gotta boil down the date to a single digit. For example, if you were born on October 2, you’re a 2. But if you’re birthday has two digits, add them together until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born on the 19th, add 1 plus 9 which equals 10. Then add 1 plus 0 which equals 1. This means your birth path number is 1!

If you see yourself in another number in this list as well it may be that you actually have that number too! Aside from our birthday number, our full date of birth number is another aspect of our life path. Example: if you were born on 4-23-1980, you would have a “5” (from the 23) birthday but add all of the numbers together and reduce to a singular digit for a second number: 4+2+3+1+9+8+0=27. Then 2+7=9. This would make you both a “5” and a “9.” And if you were born on 9-1-2002, you’d be a “1” birthday, but add all of the numbers and reduce to a singular digit for the second number: 9+1+2+0+0+2=14. Then 1+4=5. This would make you a “1” and a “5.”
As you can see, the digits of our destiny are in our birth path numbers!
