Birthdays are a special occasion in which you and your loved ones come together to celebrate the miracle of your birth. But many people believe that there is a lot more to this special day than just celebration, and it has to do with numerology.
Numerology is the study of numbers, and the important role that they play in your life. Numerology can tell you about your personality and natural talents just by looking at your date of birth.
Your Birth Number And How It Works
Your birth number (also referred to as birth path number or life path number) is found by adding together all the numbers in your birth date. Finding it is rather simple. For example:
April 5, 1990 or 4/5/1990
4 + 5 + 1990 = 1999
1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28
2 + 8 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
Once you have added all the numbers together to equal one single digit, that is your birth number.
Do the math and find your birth number below to discover a little more about your natural traits and qualities.
Birth Number 1: The Original
You strive to be unique and are driven to break norms and boundaries. You love diving into the unknown and are constantly coming up with original ideas. Be patient with others as they may not always understand your unique vision, and realize that sometimes it may benefit you to do things the “way it has always been done.”
Birth Number 2: The Diplomat
You always put others before yourself by serving and caring for them. You are devoted to bringing harmony and peace to the world, and you aren’t afraid to do everything necessary to make this happen. You are strong and determined and always willing to make sacrifices for the greater good. Don’t forget about the importance of self care, and remember that your own needs should also be a priority from time to time.
Birth Number 3: The Party Animal
You live for adventure, fun, and laughter. You aren’t worried about where life takes you and understand that you are meant to have as much fun and happiness on the journey as you can. Other people are drawn to you because you radiate energy, love, and light. Remember that you will need to make important decisions throughout life that may cause you to plant your feet firmly on the ground, and this is necessary.
Birth Number 4: The Traditionalist
Routine and order are two of the most important ideals for you throughout life. Everything has a time and place and you are able to navigate everything with ease. You are extremely hard working and always willing to invest in your goals and dreams. Learning how to compromise and adapt to change will be key for you in life, especially when it comes to relationships.
Birth Number 5: The Risk Taker
You are driven by curiosity, adrenaline, and adventure. You are always eager to try new things, especially things that are daring and involve risk.

Birth Number 6: The Romantic
Your life is filled with love and joy and you are always eager to share this with those around you. People are drawn to your kind and honest heart, and you are loyal to everyone you meet. You are willing to sacrifice almost anything just to see your loved ones happy. Remember that you also have needs that deserve to be met, so don’t be afraid to ask for help where it is needed.
Birth Number 7: The Philosopher
There is nothing you love more than learning new things. You are constantly searching for the “why” behind everything, and always have questions. Your dedication to knowledge will help you toward your dreams and goals, however, it can also isolate you from others. Learn to appreciate and cultivate your relationships as they will provide you with the support you need in your endeavors.
Birth Number 8: The Leader
Leadership is in your blood. You are bold, confident, and determined, and these qualities are what cause others to look to you for advice and assistance. You are focused on your life goals and dreams, and are not afraid to take charge and do all you can to reach them. Be careful to not overlook the needs and emotions of those around you, or you will lose many relationships.
Birth Number 9: The Entertainer
You are always able to find a reason to smile, especially during the hard times, and others are drawn to your charisma and joy. You are compassionate, caring, and constantly aware of others’ needs. You are driven to not only find the good in the world, but to create goodness for the world and make it a better place. Understand, however, that there are certain times and places to be sad, and that it is necessary in order to bring balance to the world.
Your birth number isn’t everything of course, and while it can help you better understand your nature, you are always free to explore and choose your own destiny in life.
