The life path number (also called the number of destiny) is the most important numeral in any numerology reading. It is based on your date of birth.
Your life path number is usually a single digit number from 1 - 9, but in some cases, the numbers 11, 22 and 33 are also included. These double-digit numbers are called master numbers and they're said to have twice the power or influence of the single digit numbers. Your life path number stays with you throughout your entire life. This is one reason it is called your life path. A good numerologist can help you interpret just how the strengths and challenges of your life path number influence your life and the situations in it.
