Understanding Basic Numerology - The 9 Life Paths - True Vastu

In simple terms, numerology is a magical study of numbers. Numerology is that part of astrology that deals with self-discovery and prophecy. It helps you find out the hidden meaning of the world. Have you ever found yourself staring at the clock at exactly 11:11? Or why does your lucky number turn up in the most unexpected places? Or why do you meet people born on the same day of the month? Or the life path number.

The truth behind this is cosmic warriors are embedded within the mysterious powers of digits. If you are a fan of spirituality and astrology to give you guidance in life then you might like numerology too.

Just as in astrology the planets and zodiac signs are connected to specific attributes within astrology, according to the principle of numerology, certain numbers are linked with specific personalities and themes. These numbers are used to offer insight into nature, future events, and even life’s greater purposes.

Numerology originated from 569 to 470 BC. A Greek philosopher named Pythagoras studied the metaphysics of numbers and believed that every number can be reduced to a single digit so that we can understand the spiritual and magical vibrations of the self.

Afterward, numerology was brought to the modern world by an influential spiritualist of the early 20th century named Mrs. L Dow Balliett. Numerology can act as your individualized guide to life, your strength and your weakness can be found out.

The simplest way to start working with numerology is by analyzing your unique birth date. Numerology is all about finding the root number. For this, you simply reduce digits until you get to a single-digit number.

The single-digit that is obtained after this calculation is your Life Path Number. It reveals your talents, including strength & weakness, ambitions, and your greater purpose. The Life Path Number also exposes your experiences and why events occur in the past, present, and future.


For example, let’s say your date of birth is 4th August 1985, the date and month will give you the numbers 4 and 8. 

Now, let’s talk about the year 1985. It will give 1+9+8+5 = 23.

 Then, further add 2+3, which will give you 5.

Now, we have three numbers for the date and one for the month, and one for a year. That is 4,8and 5. We have to add these three numbers until we get a single-digit number.

In this case, 4+8+5 = 17.

Further, 1+7= 8.

Thus, 8 is your Life Path Number.

There are so many major strengths and roadblocks encountered by each Life Path Number. Every number is associated with an exclusive way of using the Law of Attraction.

These meanings can be used as a tool to understand every individual numerology, and to understand any number that has been popping around you, and to analyze your lucky number.
