In Western numerology—a practice created by Greek mystic and mathematician Pythagoras over 2,500 years ago—everyone has a numerology chart made up of seven "Personality Numbers," each with its own insights.

As crazy as it sounds, all you need to discover your five greatest personal setbacks are the numbers in your birthday.

How does numerology work?

Every number (and letter) has its own unique energetic vibration. Numerology studies the way these vibrations influence the story of your personality and life.

In a world of polarity (good and bad, day and night), everybody has personality strengths and challenges. By tapping into the powerful and precious resource of numerology, you can discover the personality challenges you need to work as you aim to reach your highest potential.

When it comes to understanding your personality challenges, one of the most significant of your seven Personality Numbers is the "Life Path Number."

Take this 60-second quiz to calculate your Life Path Number and find your top five challenges.

Step 1: Add all of the numbers in your birthday together. Be sure to write out your full birth year (i.e., 1969 rather than just 69).

Step 2: Keep adding any double-digit numbers together until you get a single-digit life path number between 1 and 9.

Let’s use the birthday March 29, 1969 (3-29-1969), as an example.

3+2+9+1+9+6+9 = 39

3+9 = 12

1+2 = 3 Life Path Number

Step 3: Now, locate your life path number below to find your top five challenges. But keep in mind, there are seven numbers in your numerology chart, so for greater accuracy, all the other numbers must also be taken into consideration.
