Calculate Your Birth Number And Discover What It Reveals About You
Birth numbers are great for learning more about who you are and gaining a bit of insight into how you operate in the world around you.
So what exactly is a birth number? A birth number is calculated by the month, day and year you were born.
Each birth number is tied to our natural abilities and what challenges we are likely to face! To decipher your birth number, use this simple technique!
Add all the numbers in your birth date, then add those individual numbers, then add the two digit number that remains.
So for example: March 19, 1950
3 + 19 + 1950 = 1972
1 + 9 + 7 + 2 = 19
1 + 9 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
Note: If you end up with 10 at the end, strike the 0. Your number is one.
Now that you have your birth number, find out what it reveals about you:
