The study of numerology is the belief that there is an important mystical relationship that can be identified between a number and specific events or influences in our lives.
This includes examining areas of our lives that are already associated with numbers, such as dates and times, as well as assigning a numerical value to the different letters of the alphabet, which helps determine a numeric value for names and other words.
It starts with finding the number associated with the date, name or thought in question by adding the individual numbers and then simplifying the number.
For example, December 9, 2017, would fall to 12/09/2017. December is the 12th month and is reduced to the number 3 (1 + 2). The date is a single digit, so it does not require any further simplification. The year 2017 can be reduced to 1 (2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10, 1 + 0 = 1). The numbers associated with the date can then be added (3 + 9 + 1 = 13, 1 + 3 = 4) to determine that December 9, 2017, would be associated with the number 4. This is the life path number for this date.
While these numbers each have their own meaning, they can also be combined with other mystical studies to further reveal the secrets related to our lives, our personalities, and our inner selves.
One such practice is that of the Tarot. Tarot readers are able to unravel the mysteries of the universe through the use of a specialized card game, developed in the 18th century by those who have psychic abilities to find the answers to various questions in life. As with everything else in life, these cards can also be associated with a number for numerology purposes.
By determining our life path number (as described above), we can determine by which tarot card we are represented, providing us with fascinating information and an idea of our true life path.
Discover what your birthday tarot card says about your life path:
1. The magician:
You are a confident and natural-born leader who believes that anything in this life is possible if you just want it enough. You are not afraid of the idea of working hard, of doing whatever it takes to reach your goals, whatever their size.
When you focus on something, there is no change, which makes you incredibly stubborn and determined. You feel the need to control everything you do, with the idea of a loss of control that concerns you more than anything else.
2. The High Priestess:
You have a deep and personal understanding of the Universe and the idea of a “bigger picture”. With an incredibly strong and precise intuition, you are able to see beyond the obvious to better assess the situations in which you find yourself.
You are a gifted empath, often understanding the people you meet in this life better than they even know each other. This allows you to make a significant difference in the lives of everyone you meet.
3. The Empress:
Lover of pleasure and very social, you are most at home surrounded by others, gravitating towards social circles and public spaces. You feed on the energy of others, although it is important to pay attention to the types of energy to which you are exposed.
You enjoy the finer things in life, preferring to splurge on luxury rather than focusing on building your savings.
While it may seem materialistic, the truth is that you prefer to live in the present moment and enjoy everything you have today rather than worrying about the future.
4. The Emperor:
You live your life according to a set of clear rules, respecting a rigid timetable in order to avoid the frightening prospect of change. For one, it means that you are incredibly reliable, however, without any flexibility, it can be difficult for you to manage the twists and turns that life will inevitably throw your way.
Others know they can always count on you to get the job done, no matter how difficult or involved, and that creates an incredible level of confidence.
5. The Hierophant:
You are wise beyond your years, and you always seem to have the “right thing” to say regardless of the situation that awaits you. For this reason, you are the one your friends all turn to for advice.
This is fine with you because you enjoy supporting and helping others, sharing your knowledge and wisdom at every possible opportunity. You sometimes find yourself too focused on the past, lingering over the decisions you made or the things you did. You have to learn to let go of it and keep going.
6. The Lovers:
As the name of the card would imply, you are an incredible romantic individual, placing great importance on the relationships in your life and the relationships you develop with others.
You are enthusiastic and optimistic, bringing light and love into the lives of the people around you, a positive quality that often attracts others to you.
Unfortunately, however, your expectations are sometimes shattered in your romantic dreams, making them unrealistic. Remember, we are not living in a fairy tale, it is real life.
7. The Chariot:
While others may see you as arrogant or bossy, the truth is that you simply cannot bear to sit still in life. You firmly believe that you are always moving, whether forward or backward and make it your life mission to get things moving in the right direction at all times.
This approach to life can lead you to develop a tunnel vision, whether you are accomplishing anything in a specific area of your life while losing your sight of the bigger picture. Remember that life is not always linear.
You live your life in an incredibly relaxed style, which fascinates the people around you. While the rest of the world is running like chickens with heads cut off, you sit back with your feet up, just rolling with your punches.
Be careful not to get so laid back that you get complacent. Also, don’t let your calm personality keep you from speaking when you need to be heard. You have a powerful voice if you think you can use it.
9. The Hermit:
Although you understand the purpose of having other people in life, you also recognize that people are messy, disorganized and complicated. Instead, you thrive in an introverted, lonely world, keeping yourself and building your ideal environment.
Although there is great power in the ability to stand alone, do not allow yourself to slip into a state of complete loneliness.
There are also incredible benefits in opening up to others. Depriving yourself of the possibility of true human connection will mean missing some of life’s greatest gifts.
