# What’s the Big Deal about Birth Numbers?

By using simple mathematics you can figure out one of the most influential numbers in your life. Your birth date is more than just a number. It defines who you are and the path down which life may take you. So how do you figure it out? Just follow the simple directions below to find your number. Descriptions will follow. Have fun!

We’ll use the birth date of September 17, 1938 as an example. First convert it all to numbers. Then we add those numbers individually to come up with the next number. Keep doing this until you are down to one digit like this.

• 9 + 17 + 1938 = 1964
• 1 + 9 + 6 + 4 = 20
• 2 + 0 = 2

### Here’s another one. June 23, 1970.

• 6 + 23 + 1970 = 1999
• 1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28
• 2 + 8 = 10
• 1 + 0 = 1

Okay, so now that you have the number what does it mean? Read below for a description of each number.
