Destiny Number

Numerology – Destiny

Destiny Number

Your Destiny Number represents the karmic lessons you will experience during your lifetime. The Destiny Number is the most important number in your numerology chart. When you came into the world the energies represented by this number were activated. Herein lie the forces that determine the potential of your destiny.

Write down the date of your birthday including the year you were born. For example, I was born on the 29th of April 1962.

2+9+4+1+9+6+2= 3+3=6

So my Destiny Number is 6

The effects of my 6 Destiny maybe intensified or weakened by the proportion of other numbers in my numerology chart. However, my zodiac number is also 6, which strengthens the meaning associated with this number.

Destiny Number 1

Signifies originality, independence and leadership. Number ones tend to stand out in the crowd. They want to take over, organize and offer inventive ideas.  They want or demand to be in charge. Often unapproachable, other people lean on them for guidance, depending on the One personality to come up with solutions to their problems. The number One destiny attracts expectations of high achievement, success and the fear of failure.  They have a competitive spirit and a determined, decisive mind.  They often consider themselves to be superior beings and as a result can find themselves aloof and alone even though they enjoy centre stage and oodles of applause. Not happy with second best, at their best they shine like their ruling planet, the Sun.  However, the Sun can get in your eyes. When they become so full of themselves they begin to believe they can do no wrong and can end up as tyrants, intolerant and judgemental.

Destiny Numbers 11 and 22

Those with the destiny of 11 and 22 are very important and unusual. They have strong psychic ability and appear highly evolved spiritually. They will bring lasting powerful influences to the planet.

Zodiac Number

Each of the twelve signs of the zodiac has an important number attached to it. The planetary influences as represented by the Zodiac Number have a strong influence on your personality traits. Sometimes these are compatible with your Destiny Number and sometimes they are incompatible. This can make the difference between a smooth passage through life or a rough one. You may wish to take this number into account when you are searching for lucky lottery numbers, or if you want to assess its compatibility with a present or prospective house number you wish to purchase. This number’s planetary influence shares equal value with your Destiny number in these matters. Remember that an abundance of the same numbers may lead to an excess of the energies associated with it.

Your Birthpath Number

Your Birthpath Number represents some of your personality traits but is not anywhere as important as the Destiny Number. Your Birthpath Number is calculated by adding and then reducing the number of the day you were born. Eg

2+9= 11 (1+1=2) So my Birthpath number is two but because 11 is a master number I can choose between both.

Lucky Year Number

As everyone knows, some years are lucky and happier than others. It is considered to be a lucky year in numerology when the value of positive and compatible numbers is evident. So, which are your personal lucky years?

In numerology, the world turns in nine-year cycles, and when your Destiny Number is the same as the Universal Year Number, this is considered to be one of your luckiest years. This blessing, however, occurs only once every nine years, but of course there is more than one lucky year in the cycle. Another fortunate year is when your Personal Year Number coincides with your Birthpath Number. Yet another pleasant year is forecast when the Personal Year Number and your Zodiac Number are the same.

On the other hand, when your Destiny Number, Birthpath Number, Zodiac Number and Personal Year Number are all the same, then you are in a year of extremes and it becomes truly a “feast or famine” period.

  1. I was pleased to find out that I have both the master numbers! My destiny number is 11 (2+2+1+1+9+8+6) and I was born on the 22d.
    I have always thought that being born on the 11th or 22d was pretty special, and so 33 would be if there were 33 days in a month) yet I never knew until now that these numbers were actually CONSIDERED master ones in numerology! Pretty cool. Well, at least this info let me know that there’s some potential in me as for developing psychic abilities.
    How can I figure out “my” arcane? Would it be the XI arcane? Which is either The Force or Justice , there is still no consent on this issue.
    Now I know where my dual nature comes from 🙂
    Thanx Vivien
