Numerology, the study and interpretation of the important numbers in our lives, can help guide an individual through the unseen pitfalls of life, help direct him or her to the impressive pinnacles of human achievement and generally help an individual to better understand his or her life. The master number 11 can relate to "instinct and "faith". Likewise, it can signify fear and anxiety, so it should be read with care. These have enormous effects on the holder.

The total number of vowels in your name and the total number of consonants is also important. Each number from 1 to 9 has to do with particular vibrations. You may be asking yourself, "which numerology number is the best? Well, each number has positive and negative qualities. In their study of mathematical concepts, the Pythagoreans classified numbers into categories.

Numbers such as 1, 4 and 9 were squares because a corresponding number of dots or pebbles could be arranged in a perfect square. 1, 3, 6 and 10 were triangular, since one, three, six or ten dots can be arranged in regular triangles. Two, six and 12 were oblong, as the corresponding number of pebbles formed rectangles. Nowadays, there are several websites that help to understand the meaning of the life path numbers.

According to this website, the starting point for calculating the life path number is the date of birth. Just like the zodiac signs in astrology, these numbers are present in numerology. Your life path number indicates your qualities, strengths and weaknesses, but that is not all. It also holds within it a deeper meaning and purpose for your life.

To know your life path number is to find your purpose in life and align your efforts with it. To quote Soleil again, "life path numbers help us on our personal hero's journey, guiding us through the stages towards completion". You could be forgiven for believing that you could be as well as lost on the long journey called life without life's path number.
