These numbers and corresponding traits form the basis of numerology. To start, you just need to calculate your life path number. For example: Curt was born on 11-23-1955. The life path number for him is added as 11 + 23 + 1955 = 1989. Then add 1 + 9 + 8 + 9 = 27. Then add 2 + 7 = 9. Curt’s life path number is 9. The above-mentioned traits for number 9 define the basis of his character at birth and his future life path. Another example: Sophia was born on 09-18-1958. The life path number is added as 9 + 18 + 1958 = 1985. Then add 1 + 9 + 8 + 5 = 23. Then add 2 + 3 = 5. Sophia’s life path number is 5.
