Your Life Path Number and Your Dream Job

Deciding what to do with your career can be intimidating and confusing. Luckily, the key to figuring it out may actually lie in your Life Path Number. Your Life Path Number is the sum of the numbers in your birthdate, and it provides insight into the nature of your soul, including your energy, strengths, and abilities. As such, this makes it a great tool for finding out what you’re on earth to do and how you might go about doing it. It also holds cautionary insights to help protect you throughout your life.

With this self-knowledge, you can find a career that fits you like a glove — something that your heart and soul will be joyfully invested in. When you find that perfect role, your work probably won’t feel much like work at all because you will love what you do, and you will feel like you’re fulfilling your true meaning.

How To Find Your Life Path Number

Finding your Life Path Number is easy, though it can certainly seem intimidating. A detailed breakdown can be found here. However, on a basic level, all you need to do is simplify the numbers in your birthdate to the lowest possible single digit or Master Number. Let’s say your birthday is December 18, 1986. Write that down in numerals to get: 12/18/1986. Then add up the individual numbers in every category (month, date, year), reducing each one until you get a single digit: 1+2/1+8/1+9+8+6. This gives you 3/9/24. Add the last number together one more time: 3/9/6.

Now, add the numbers of each category together: 3+9+6=18. Since the end result is a double-digit number (and not a Master Number), add it together one more time. 1+8=9, giving you a Life Path Number of 9.

Note: As mentioned above, in the last step, if your calculation gives you a Master Number of 11, 22, or 33, you do not need to reduce any further. These double-digit numbers may remain as is.

Once you know your Life Path Number, consult the list below to find some potential career paths for you.

Life Path Number 1 (Keyword: Independent)

You need to lead. Like cream, you rise to the top. You want to be the boss or be the best in your field. You are brave, creative, independent, and unafraid to stand alone when needed. You strive to be patient, even though it can be hard. You would be amazing as a scientist, fearless in your quest for discovery, or as an entrepreneur — one who is capable of creating new, unique businesses. You could also excel in careers that deal with law and order, where you would aim to set wrongs right.

Life Path Number 2 (Keyword: Harmony)

Partnerships of all kinds will bring you much pleasure. You’re a team player, and you’re most certainly a peacemaker. Your ability to bring harmony to any group is a natural part of you. If you feel shy, don’t be afraid to go after what you want. You are very likely to obtain it. You’d make an amazing matchmaker with your intuition; or you’d be a great politician, always seeking to create balance. You could even be a pastor, tending to your flock with loving care.

Life Path Number 3 (Keyword: Imagination)

You can be wonderfully expressive, and you’re able to communicate the most imaginative ideas to a rapt audience. You aren’t afraid to argue for what you believe in, but please do your best to avoid being over-critical of yourself or others. You would be a persuasive lawyer, one who stands up for the underdog; a fascinating talk show host with a merry sense of humor; or a dazzling entertainer who just naturally steals the spotlight when they’re on stage.

Life Path Number 4 (Keyword: Stability)

You are among those who genuinely love to work hard at whatever they choose to do. You try to do your job without complaint, and you strive to create stability for yourself and your loved ones. You are practical, and you have a knack for organizing, whether you love or hate it. Let yourself rest and take a nap when you need one. You would be a great general manager who cares about their employees, an excellent accountant, or a winning athlete.

Life Path Number 5 (Keyword: Freedom)

Freedom is your battle cry. You can be faithful to the one you marry, but they must honor your personal need to feel free if things are going to work out. You love to have fun, and you find all adventure thrilling, including traveling to other lands and meeting new people. You would be a fantastic tour guide, bringing excitement to each trip; a great emcee, where you would bring lots of life and laughter to an audience; or a skilled writer, with the potential to become well-known.

Life Path Number 6 (Keyword: Love)

You have a huge heart, and you love giving to others. Your compassion and kindness bring people comfort. You have an eye for beauty and know how to create it. With all the care in your heart, please remember to treat yourself well too. As far as careers go, you could be a sought-after and beloved actor, a diplomat who brings balance and harmony to even the most difficult situations, or a thoughtful and fair judge.

Life Path Number 7 (Keyword: Mystic)

You are a seeker of truth, and you love diving into the mysteries of the world, especially as they relate to science or religion. You are a thinker, and meditation comes quite easily to you. Let yourself have the alone time you need to recuperate. You could find happiness in being a meditation guide, a photographer, or a software developer who advances the computer industry with genius ideas.

Life Path Number 8 (Keyword: Power)

People often turn to you for leadership, as you naturally have a kind of benefic authority. You are powerful and gravitate toward positions of great significance. You work extremely hard, but you must remember to make time for self-care. You would be great boss material, taking care of your people and making sure that things are done well. Because you’re a money magnet, you could also be a big banker or a real estate broker, one with integrity and a positive reputation.

Life Path Number 9 (Keyword: Humanitarian)

You genuinely care about people from every walk of life. You possess great wisdom, and you happily share it with others. You love to assist people, but just remember it’s okay for you to ask for help too when you need it. You would be a marvelous professor, instructing your students in great depth about your chosen subjects. You could also be a psychiatrist, which would let you use your healing gifts, or a philanthropist, giving generously to many charitable groups.

Life Path Number 11 (Keyword: Intuitive)

You are a Master Intuitive. You are sensitive, psychically gifted, and empathetic toward others. Please trust yourself. You are wonderfully imaginative and creative. You have the power to inspire and uplift everyone you meet. You radiate loving energy and would do very well as a counselor; an interior designer, where you create loveliness; or a gifted intuitive reader.

Life Path Number 22 (Keyword: Manifest)

You are a Master Builder. You can turn thoughts into physical reality with your powers of manifestation. You create and build strong foundations with everyone and everything you invest in. That said, please get enough sleep. You’ll flourish when you can be the boss and build your empire. Your courageous spirit finds joy in creating new businesses or constructing buildings. You might also enjoy working in big finance, where you can earn tremendous wealth.

Life Path Number 33 (Keyword: Guide)

You are a Master Teacher. You have the power to guide, instruct, and heal others. Your essence is of love, and through your loving kindness, you can help people become one with their Higher Selves. Please be kind to yourself. As your number’s title might suggest, you would delight in being a teacher, touching the hearts of your students; a healer, tending to the unwell; or a trainer, both kind and encouraging.
