Episode 43 – Life Path & Destiny Numbers

Think of this solo episode as a class in Numerology 101 taught by Professor Holli with a class syllabus that includes: 

  • Numerology is a layer to astrology your sun, moon, rising signs and your north node – listen to these episodes H&J Astrology Soul Purpose 
  • What is this fascination with knowing our personalities?  
  • We even do this in business – the Myers Briggs, Enneagram, Hogan, etc. 
  • Life Path numerology is another layer to add on to your astrological sun sign to understand your life’s purpose 
  • Holli sneaks spirit into the board room 
  • Life path reveals your purpose while destiny number describes how you will express this purpose 

Before class is dismissed Professor Holli teaches you how to calculate your life path.  The cliff notes on that are below: 

If your birthday is June 16, 1972: 

6+1+6+1+9+7+2 = 32 

3+2 = 5 

Life path number 5 

If you get an 11 or a 22; do not reduce these to a 2 or a 4 respectively.  They are called master numbers and it is believed those with a master number have more commitment to fulfill their calling in life even under intensity. 

And what do the Life Path numbers mean, you ask? 

Number 1  

This is about action and initiation. 1 symbolizes a pioneering spirit, independent nature, and innate leadership capabilities. 1 can also be bossy or boastful, hiding any insecurities behind over-developed self-importance.  

Number 2 

2 is linked to sensitivity, balance, and harmony. 2 is the mediator, creating harmony by bringing together opposing forces through compassion, empathy, and kindness. 2 can have heightened intuition and will be astute to subtle energy shifts and emotional nuances.  

Number 3 

Communication is important for 3. 3 is highly gifted at expression sharing innovative and pioneering concepts through art, writing, and speaking. Your work inspires, motivates, and uplifts others, and 3 finds great joy making others smile. 3 is known to be moody or misunderstood he/she may withdraw entirely. 3 should find moments of quiet to reset, restore, and recharge. 

Number 4  

4 is grounded and centered like a tree in its roots. 4 is practical, hardworking, and responsible, the vibration of the number 4 is focused on creating logical systems that can support scalable growth. 4 must remember that rules are meant to enhance, not inhibit and don’t be so stubborn.  Loosen up 4s and think outside-the-box. 

Number 5 

Free-thinking, adventurous, and progressive, 5 is defined by freedom. 5 is known for its playful, impulsive, and vivacious spirit. 5 can become restless and impatient. Since 5 is always seeking discovery, it has a difficult time accepting life’s day-to-day responsibilities. 

Number 6 

6 is recognized for its nurturing, supportive, and empathic nature. A true healer, 6 has the ability to problem solve in both the emotional and physical realms, helping others through its straightforward, yet gentle, approach. 6 has a strong sense of responsibility, and cares deeply for loved ones. Sometimes 6’s protective energy can become domineering and controlling.  

Number 7  

The detectives of numerology, 7 is known for its investigative abilities and analytical skills. 7 is extremely detail-oriented, but is driven by inner-wisdom as opposed to tangible realities. 7 has a keen eye, and its astute observations fuel a quick-witted, inventive spirit. Watch out for the dreaded perfectionism and always keep an open mind.   

Number 8 

8 is all about abundance. Within numerology, this number is linked to material wealth, financial success and leadership. Ambitious and goal-oriented with great power comes great responsibility: 8 breeds workaholics, and on a bad day, can become excessively controlling and possessive. 

Number 9 

Can you say wisdom, old soul? 9 is no stranger to life’s ups-and-downs of life — been there, done that. There is a spiritual awareness with 9s.  9 transforms and it  inspires others to explore their own transformation. 

Master Number 11 (11/2) 

Master Number 11 revs up the energy of Number 2; its purpose is to heal the self and others through its intuition or psychic abilities. There is a school of thought that the master number has a more destined life and is more committed to live this life on purpose with less free will to change their mind.  Master Number 11 is connected to spiritual enlightenment, awareness, and philosophical balance. 

Master Number 22 (22/4) 

Master Number 22, expands on the vibrations of Number 4. There is a school of thought that the master number has a more destined life and is more committed to live this life on purpose with less free will to change their mind. Master Number 22’s skills are usually a byproduct of instability that fuels innovative thought. Industrious, creative, and dependable, Master Number 22 is always on a mission to transform.
