Using your numerology birth date can determine your life path number.
Each number in numerology represents certain character traits and life events.
By reducing the numbers in your birth date, you will arrive at a single digit, which is the life path number. Finding out what your life path number is can help you to better understand yourself, what you have to offer and even who you’re compatible with.
Numerology Birth Date: Finding Your Life Path Number
To figure out the numerology birth date number, take the number of the month you were born, the day you were born and the year.
You’ll need to start off by reducing the date, in order to arrive at a single digit. Add the day, the month and the year.

If you were born in 1981, the formula will look like this: 1+9+8+1=19.
Next, you’ll need to reduce that double-digit number to a single digit: 1+9=10. If you still come up with a double digit, add the numbers add: 1+0= 1.
So your number for your birth year is 1. You already know that each month is assigned a number, for example, April is number 3.
