P.S. As promised in the beginning, here is an example of how you calculate your Life Path Number:
Add all the numbers in your date of birth:
d+d+m+m+y+y+y+y = add each digit from the number you came up with to get a single digit
Example: 1st of August 1981 = 01/08/1981 = 0+1+0+8+1+9+8+1=28=2+8=10=1
Those who were born on the 1st of August 1981 have the life path number 1 (not 10, since 0 doesn’t count)
