The birth date describes who we are, what we are good at and what our inborn abilities are. It also points to what we have to learn and the challenges we are facing.The birth number is only one puzzle piece in a total numerology reading. The information given here is meant as an introduction to numerology.
Due to repeated requests I have also added the double digit master numbers 11, 22 and 33. I still recommend that you get a full numerology reading to get the total meaning of these numbers in your life. I also want to point out that those who have double digits are always influenced also by the single digit meaning of number.
Figuring Out Your Birth Number
To figure out your Birth Number, add all the numbers in the birth date together like in the example until there is only one digit. The Birth Number does not prevent you from being anything you want, it will just color your choice differently.

3 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 5 + 0 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2
2 is the Birth Number to read for the birth date in the example.

#1 The Originator
1’s are originals. Coming up with new ideas and executing them is natural. Having things their own way is another trait that gets them labeled as being stubborn and arrogant. 1’s are extremely honest and do well to learn some diplomacy skills. They like to take the initiative and are often leaders or bosses, as they like to be the best. Being self-employed is definitely helpful for them. Lesson to learn: Others’ ideas might be just as good or better and to stay open minded.

2’s are the born diplomats. They are aware of others’ needs and moods and often think of others before themselves. Naturally analytical and very intuitive they don’t like to be alone. Friendship and companionship is very important and can lead them to be successful in life, but on the other hand they’d rather be alone than in an uncomfortable relationship. Being naturally shy they should learn to boost their self-esteem and express themselves freely and seize the moment and not put things off.

With their natural understanding of both the earthly and spiritual realms and a strong desire to help, others are often drawn to them when they’re in need for a mediator, harmonizer or just a sympathetic ear.

#22/4 The Master Builder
Like the other double digit numbers the 22 master number draws its strength from the fact that they are tuned into their spiritual side while doing the most mundane chores.
