Destiny Number or Life Path number in Numerology
Why was I born?
What am I here for?
What is my destiny?
I am sure these questions sound quite familiar. These are questions we have asked ourselves or want to know. Whether we know it or not, we here on this Earth for a reason, a purpose. Numerologists consider numbers in several combination to answer these questions. One of such combination is Destiny Number (also known as Life path number) in Numerology terms. This is the number that describes the talents and attitudes at your disposal in this lifetime. This number which is derived from the date of birth carries a special significance as it cannot be changed. This is a very easy number to calculate. All one has to do is add up all the numbers in your date of birth and bring it to a single digit.
For example if the date of birth is 1st Augest 1972 the calculation is as follows:-
01/08/1972 = 1 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 2 = 28 = 2 + 8 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1
The destiny number for the above example therefore is one.

It's important to work toward eradicating those negative traits. Any aspect of one's character that becomes excessive runs the risk of being negative. JAYE

Fun article. Figured out the destiny number for myself, husband and son. Thanks for sharing the information.

Suitable marriage dates for 7 are 7,16 and 25th and for 8 are 5,6,14,15,23 and 24. However, I don't think you should worry much about it as love can surpass all.

I'm an 8 and my fiance is a 7. So, I think that 10/10/10 (=3) will be good for us. :} Thanks!
Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on February 22, 2010:
Thanks for the visit hEiDivaChocolate! If you are a number 3, then days totaling to 3 like 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th would be good to you. People with ruling numbers 1,2,3,6,7 and 8 would be ideal partners for a number 3.
hEiDivaChocolate! from New York, NY on February 22, 2010:
I just got engaged and plan to marry on 10/10/10. Does this same concept apply to events? I hope so because it seems that the number three would mean that our relationship will excel!
