What is Numerology?
Numerology studies the symbolism of numbers, to uncover insights and relationships between numbers and people, real world events, contexts and life in general.
How Does Numerology Work?
Everything is a form of energy which vibrates on a certain frequency.
Numerology is the tool that helps you uncover relevant life information via digging into the significance of numbers associated with you, others and various life events.
All numbers, no matter how complex, can be reduced to single digits numbers, except for 11 and 22, which are special numbers.
So there are eleven numbers we use to develop numerology charts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 22. For the larger numbers, we add the digits together until their sum is one of the core numbers.
There is just one exception to the rule of reducing numbers to single digits: the 11, 22 and 33 master numbers. Their significance is intensified versus 2 and respectively 4, which are the single digit numbers they replace.
Numerology Life Path Numbers
Most people associate numerology with the date of birth interpretation. As a first step, you can use this date (in the numeric format mm/dd/yyyy) to determine the Lifepath Number.
- Life Path Number 1 (10/1, 19/1): Natural born leader. Watch-out on being a follower.
- Life Path Number 2 (11/2, 20/2): Highly developed on the spiritual side. Watch out not to go to extremes.

Life Path Compatibility
You can use numerology to assess the relationship compatibility based on looking at different sets of numbers.
Most people do this to estimate the long-term compatibility potential with a potential partner. You can use the insights also to improve existing relationships and generally to address relationships challenges of any kind.
Remember to keep in mind the big picture and use constructively the insights you uncover.
Life Path number is the most important element when it comes to assessing relationship compatibility.
Here’s a quick list of the numbers indicating a good compatibility and easy, natural fit:
