Numerology – What Your Birth Date Reveals About You!

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 The Peacemaker

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.

#11/2 The Intuitive

11 is the higher expression of the number 2. 11’s have the ability to intuitively tune into what’s happening around them and can offer insight from a spiritual level. Extremely idealistic by nature, they are often labeled as ‘dreamers’. 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. The physical world is very important to them and they are very organized and efficient in carrying out their tasks. They make great leaders with a solid foundation based on the number 4 and the added dimension of the spiritual side based on the number 22. They have lots of energy and are very idealistic and come up with great new ideas.

#33/6 The Compassionate

The 33’s cherrish a love of beauty and balance. They feel a deep compassion for the world and have to guard against becoming a martyr as emotions overwhelm them. Also don’t self-sacrifice yourself for others. You can be more helpful as a teacher by showing the way for others to follow.

Questioning everything in life, they don’t like to be questioned themselves. They’re never off to a fast start, and their motto is slow and steady wins the race. They come across as philosophers and being very knowledgeable, and sometimes as loners. They are technically inclined and make great researchers uncovering information. They like secrets. They live in their own world and should learn what is acceptable and what not in the world at large.

  1. for a while now i have been seeing the number 11 and the nuber 11 11 so kinda like 22 or in some ways it will be 4 for 1111 but all the time 11. so just recently i have been wondering about it then i found that by the exact day me and my only real sister are exactly by the day and everything in the month 11 month appart my real name has 11 letters in it everything i look at will add up to 11 stranegly and i was born at 1:03 in the morning 1+3 4 1111 my chinese zodiac the dog is the 11 one just last week on new years it was a lunar blue moon in the cancer house the 11 house im a cancer. and then one day i found out how to figure out my birth number and what do u know while i was doing it when i was done it added up to38 so i was realieved cause i really thought it would be 11 then i saw how u had to had 3+8 and it was 11 june 27 1994 6+2+7+1+9+9+4=38 3+8=11 it is really weird i have felt that i have a spiritualy side all of my reading say very simular things to my dog sign for chines zodiac and the the cancer exactly right and my element is water exactly right everything about me i have a lot of questions and i love it if some one can help answer them ppl my email is

  2. i just got down reading alot of this stuff abot the 11 and 22 and i didnt mention on the paragraph above that i didnt start noticing the 11 until 2009 i cant believe that it had meaning the universal 11 i never even thought about adding 2009 together out of all of the other things that i did i am really surprised rite now and i cant beleive this whole time in some way the 11 and the 22 of had meaning.

  3. Which is the right way to calculate the numbers. 3 sites and three variations of how to add them. I get the same number 1972 03 17 = 3 but I get 30/3 with yours and I get 12/3 and 21/3.

    The reason I came to the web was to research Linda Goodmans Key Number of Birth 17/8 (8&4 what is your take).


    • I don”t know what to tell you, as like you I have come across all the different variations of adding the numbers for your Birthdate and each one claims to be the correct one. So I usually add it in different ways just to see what other numbers are involved.


    • The only person who can totally figure out what it all means is you. The best way to get there is to read as many interpretations and ideas as possible and then take the ones that you resonate with.

  5. Hi,

    I am born on 18 feb 1984, at the age of 18 i faced lot of problems and it continued till 24 and since then i have become very strong mentally, n i have noticed that i have this huge inclination towards anything related to military (I tried to join military but cudnt), animal welfare and one more is falling in love (but in a very rich and healthy manner). I just cannot afford to stay single….though relationships were nt able to materialize because of lack of commitment from other sides. i have got hurt in love many times but still i never stop being falling in love…..Why it happens with me….i dont do it purposely or just for fun…i instinctively fall in love n end up in hurt. Military, Animals and Love…these three words surrounds my life. I want to know if they by any means related to my birth number.

    #6 The Romantic
    6’s are idealistic and need to feel useful to be happy. A strong family connection is important to them. Their emotions influence their decisions. They have a strong urge to take care of others and to help. They are very loyal and make great teachers. They like art or music. They make loyal friends who take the friendship seriously. 6’s should learn to differentiate between what they can change and what they cannot.

  13. ok people, im not a a REAL numerologist but i have been known to be good at this for what ever reason, from my studies/trial and error i think chaldean is by far the most accurate naturally it is the oldest numerology and the one i trust. its very simple and has helped me out tremendously i now consider myself psychic hahaha that sounds so silly but its true anyway this is the formula for it and if you apply it to your friends and then from a free site look up their lifepath #’s (description)and see if the information underneath the lifepath number matches what you know about your friend, i promise you guys it will be scary true and in a way offensive to certain people (especially your a-hole friends *8’s lol ) its so easy too all you do is this :

    month of birth + day of birth = life path # ok so heres an example of mine :
    september 27th is 09+27=(lifepath)
    since my day of birth is on the 27th i would break it down to a single digit 2+7= 9 unless its a (11, 44, 22 *master numbers) so september is 9 and 27 broken down (2+7) is a 9 when i combine my month and day i get 18 so i must break that down to a single digit 1+8=9 and thats all folks…and boy the 9 fits me so well

  14. my daughter s date of birth is 26th of May 2011 .

    For MANY years, Every Single Day I look at the clock as it changes to 6:27, which is the month and day I was born. Sometimes I will wake up out of my sleep and look at the clock and it’s changing to 6:27am. If I don’t wake up in the morning, then that evening I will pick up my phone or look at a clock and it’s changing to 6:27pm. Because it happens every day and the numbers have a significance to the day I was born, it makes me want to know more. It is not a coincidence since it happens everyday. I just can’t find out any information that would shed some light on this for me.

    • I can’t really tell you why you see those numbers and what they mean. There are so many ideas about this floating around and you can find them easily by doing a Google search. I personally think they are triggers or a wake-up call, but for what I don’t know. Whenever I see numbers like that it makes me feel good and smile. So I take them as a positive omen and go on to have a happy day.

  20. so what is eary about me is that i was born in 5/22/02 and i was 6pounds and 6 onces wweird right but i do not know what it mean do you have any clue? Good luck bad luck im cluless? Thank you-Kellinne F.
