What Numerology Can Tell You About Your Love Life, According to Astrologers
Looking for love? Astrologers say numerology can help you find lasting romance.
Like astrology, numerology can tell you a lot about your personality and your love life. "In this esoteric practice, numbers possess specific energies that can be used to guide you through tough life decisions (like angel numbers) or discern certain patterns and personality traits," explains Brittany Beringer, writer, mystic, and artist.
Numerology is based on the ancient principle that numbers are the building blocks of our world. It draws meaning from different sequences and patterns of numbers that reoccur in your life. Much of numerology focuses on one's larger Life Path Number, but honing in on your Love Life Number can provide greater insights into your love language and best romantic partners. To figure out your number and learn more about it, keep reading to hear from astrologers about what numerology can tell you about your love life.
How to figure out your Life Path and Love Life Numbers
"Everything in the world reduces down to numbers—astrology included," explains astrologer Daniela Karpenos, founder of Cosmic Latte. "For example, in astrology, the fourth house represents home, roots, family, and ancestry. In numerology, fours are solid, stable, and practical."
To find your Life Path Number, start by taking the numerical value of your birthday (MM/DD/YYYY) and add all the numbers together. Keep adding each of those digits together until you finally end up with a single-digit number between one and nine.
To find your Love Life Number, simply add the numbers of just the day you were born. For example, if you were born on May 18, your number is 9. If you were born on July 10, your number is 1.
While your Life Path Number highlights your core set of values and personality traits, your Love Life Number shows how you express those parts of yourself in relationships. Next, celebrity astrologer and lifestyle writer Lauren Ash breaks down the romantic traits of each Love Life Number.
