Birthday Number


The Birth Day is a perspective – the way we see and act on our Life Path. Different Birth Days will give a different focus on how the Life Path will be learned.

Each day of the month offers a different number energy. 1 to 9 are the basic energy principles. 11 to 31 are compounds of these energy principles and must be considered accordingly. This means that, if we add the different Birth Days to the different Life paths there will be at least 279 different basic character types without considering the name of a person.

The Birthday Number (the day on which we were born) is a supporting influence over our Life Path and can be thought of as its modifier and motivator. These are traits that have been brought into this life much as with the more important and dominating traits as shown by our Life Path. The meanings of the Birth Day Numbers will remain identical to the Life Path Number. The only difference is how the Birth Day Number is applied. The Life Path Number produces the stage play for our life – i.e. it creates the plot and characters. The Birth Day Number grants us indications as to how our lines should be delivered in this play.

In today’s age the vocational/career field is without doubt the most established area of human activity in which personal growth and evolution takes place – or are prevented from transpiring – simply because this area claims most of the time of a person’s alert life.

The right vocational/career path is of heightened importance in the years 28 through 56 (the so-called power square in Pythagorean Numerology) and your Birth Day can help depict the type of work required from us, in order to master our Life Path successfully.

There may even be people in our lives, with whom portray prominent numbers within their Numerological ‘Core Aspects’ for which represent our Birth Day Number. This enables us to recognise the traits we need to activate within ourselves, in order to establish the very experiences we are trying to incorporate into our life.

It stands to reason that knowledge of the appropriate occupational/career route at a stage as early as the last years at school can avoid much wasted time cost of education, and physical and emotional pain. Ideally, the work life as set by the major ordaining forces in the birth chart coincides with these long term influences and almost guarantees an enjoyable, satisfying and fulfilling existence. In the reality of life in today’s society, disinformation and an imposed false value system result in the fact that only a tiny percentage of us fall into this category.

When our Birth Day and Life Path numbers do not complement each other, a person finds conflict in their lives between ‘where they think they should heading and where they are actually heading’.

If one were to interpret the energies of the Birth Day along with the Life Path, a persons character traits are more easily identified and understood. If you can do this you will soon start to realise that the Life Path is simply one base ingredient and cannot be considered as the whole person any more than you can taste the wonders of a chocolate cake by eating a mouthful of flour.

The Significance of Your Birthday Number in Numerology

There are a few basic rules for the interpretation of birthdays that are easy to explain:

  • If the sum of the digits of your birthday is 3, 6 or 9 then you are imaginative, can make a good impression on people and definitely are not shy, but like being around lots of people. Since you have no shortage of original ideas, you should put them to use in some creative way. Once your interest has been aroused, you will become active.
  • If the sum of the digits of your birthday is 2, 4, 8, 11 or 22, things will not be so easy. You are more complicated and do not express your feelings without reservations. In extreme cases, it could even be difficult for you to talk about your feelings. However, you have a good nose for profitable business ventures and work hard.
  • The remaining numbers, 1,5, and 7 indicate a love for intellectual work, which coincides with someone who learns well and can adapt to different situations quickly.
