## How to calculate your life path number….

If you are new to numerology, you may not know how easy it is to figure out your life path, and your destiny, using numerology. It’s a very simple calculation called the life path number, and your birth date is used to figure it out. So convert your birth date to a numerical value, add them all up together, and add the final two digits together to get one single digit number. That is your life path number.

So let’s say your birthday is August 17, 1970. Convert that down to numbers like so: 8/17/1970. Now you are going to add them all up, and convert the final number into a single digit by also adding that up.

8 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 0 = 33 = 3 + 3 = 6.

This birth date means this person is a life path 6! What is your life path number? Now you can use your life path number to find out how to channel luck in 2016. Here’s a luck channeling guide for each life path number.
