When it comes to learning more about your future through numerology, learning your life path number is going to be the most important number. Your life path number is assigned to you through your birthdate.
The life path number shows your soul and personality. It helps show you what may come to be through those personality traits. Your life path will not show you exactly what will happen throughout your life, but it helps you understand which paths may end up appealing to you, or which decisions may lead you to a new path.
Your life path number is calculated through a simple formula comprised of your month, day, and year of your birth. You take the date as a whole and add each digit together until you have a single digit.
For example: if your birthday is January 7th, 1987.
1-7-1987 are the numbers you will use. First, turn the year into a single digit by adding each number together. 1+9+8+7=25. And 2+5=7.
Take that seven and add it to your month and day. 7+1+7=15. And finally, add the 1+5 to get your life path number of 6.
To understand what your life path number means, there are plenty of different interpretations on different levels of your life. But ITV offers a great, concise breakdown to get a general view of what the numbers each mean.
The next step in understanding how to see into your future through numerology is discovering your destiny number.

When you’re learning how to understand your future through numerology, questions may arise about astrology as well. Astrology is based on celestial objects rather than numbers. Typically, when people think of seeing into their future, they may think more of their horoscope, which is based on astrology.
But numerology can be just as powerful in showing us what the future holds. There are specific ideologies and systems in both numerology and astrology that will unlock doors to see into your future.
Astrology shows us how celestial objects can affect our lives and events happening around us. Numerology uses numbers to predict circumstances based on what those numbers mean and their values.
So, while looking at your daily horoscope based on your birthday does have to do with numbers, since it is based on your birthdate – it doesn’t use the specific set of rules to understand what the numbers truly mean. Rather, it is based on the celestial movement during the time of your birth.
Numerology is a fun, interesting, and intricate way to see into your future. Understanding what the numbers mean and how they may dictate certain areas of your life is where the beauty of numerology lies.
Your name and your birthdate are just about as personal as you can get. They signify the day you entered this universe, as well as the name you came into this universe with. Even if you go by a different name now, it goes back to the root of your beginning.
Those roots are what will show you the future through numbers that are truly personal to you and only you.
