Numerology: Career Ideas Based on Your Life Path Number

Your Path to a Fulfilling Career

In numerology, your life path number is the most important number. It says a lot about you—your personality, how you handle obstacles and opportunities, what your gifts and challenges are, and even what careers you’re best suited for. Finding career ideas based on your life path number can be either a confirmation that you’re already doing something you’re well-suited for, or it can provide you with ideas if you’ve just started your career path or you’re in the midst of reinventing yourself. We often hear, “Do what you love and it will never feel like work.” Then doesn’t it make sense to look at the eye-opening treasures to be found within your numerology and especially your life path number?

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

If someone has a birthdate of October 14, 1947, we’d reduce each unit (month, date and year) to a single-digit number:

  • October is the 10th month, so 10 = 1 + 0 = 1
  • 14 is the day of the month, so 1 + 4 = 5
  • 1947 is the year, so 1 + 9 + 4+ 7 = 21; reduce 21 to a single digit, so 2 + 1 = 3
  • Next, we add the single-digit numbers up: 1 + 5 + 3 = 9

This person’s life path number is 9.

Master Number Calculations

Always make sure you reduce a double-digit number to a single-digit number, except when it comes to a master number (11, 22 or 33). For example, if a person’s birth date was January 5, 1948, the calculations would be as follows:

  • January = 1
  • The 5th day = 5
  • 1948: 1 + 9 + 4 + 8 = 22 [master number, so do not reduce to a single-digit number here]
  • Now we add everything up: 1 + 5 + 22 = 28; 2 + 8 = 10; 1 + 0 = 1

This person’s life path number is 1

If you discover you have a master number, be sure to follow these calculations.

Now let’s see what careers you should pursue!

Life Path Number 1 (Keyword: Leadership)

You are a natural-born leader. You need freedom to think and create and you do best when you’re in a position to direct your own destiny. Therefore, being self-employed or the head of a company is what you’re best suited for. As a groundbreaker and innovator, you enjoy making your visions become reality.

Famous People with Life Path Number 1: George Lucas and Sean Connery

Life Path Number 2 (Keyword: Peacemaker)

You’re artistic and creative, so you may enjoy the arts, but your real gift lies in being able to bring people together. Therapist or teacher are good professions for you. Whether on stage or in an office, you affect the people around you in a positive way.

Famous People with Life Path Number 2: Bob Hope and Meg Ryan

Life Path Number 3 (Keyword: Creativity)

When focused on a certain path, your creative and expressive sides shine through. You might feel a spiritual calling to your choice of profession; don’t ignore it. Therefore, you could have a career as an actor, musician, or even an interior designer to the stars—all of these would give you the luxurious life you feel entitled to. But, you must do the work.

Famous People with Life Path Number 3: Barbara Walters and David Bowie

Life Path Number 4  (Keyword: Practical)

You are practical and organized, and do well with traditions and structured environments. Therefore, you would make a wonderful event planner, portfolio manager, lawyer or office manager. As long as there are rules and a system of hierarchy, you feel comfortable. You are good with money, so working and saving give you the comfortable life you seek.

Famous People with Life Path Number 4: Bill Gates and Nicole Kidman

Life Path Number 5 (Keyword: Freedom)

You love experiencing different cultures, so a career that allows you to travel would be a dream come true. Your gift is communication; you are wonderful at writing or expressing yourself verbally. Therefore, you would make an amazing photo journalist, travel agent, tour guide or pilot.

Famous People with Life Path Number 5: Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard

Life Path Number 6 (Keyword: Humanist)

You are a giver and possess great compassion for others. You want to be a part of the solution to uncomfortable situations. Therefore, counselor, disaster relief worker or doctor in an impoverished area all fit your caring and compassionate side. Also, creative career ideas include make-up artist, musician or artist. You see beauty in the most mundane.

Famous People with Life Path Number 6: Robert De Niro and Eleanor Roosevelt

Life Path Number 7 (Keyword: Explorer)

You love to find the truth in things, exposing answers and uncovering mysteries through writing, research and investigation. You enjoy your alone time to either study or recharge your batteries. Therefore, professions like private detective, paranormal investigator, theologist, archeologist and marine biologist are great for you.

Famous People with Life Path Number 7: Dr. Phil McGraw and Princess Diana

Life Path Number 8 (Keyword: Powerful)

You’re a visionary leader. You have a keen sense of what works and what doesn’t. Prosperity and positions of power are within your grasp. You can attract money easily through hard work. A desk job is not for you. Therefore, political and corporate power positions as well as investments or engineering are great career ideas.

Famous People with Life Path Number 8: Paul Newman and Lucille Ball

Life Path Number 9 (Keyword: Compassion)

Your life’s purpose is to share your sensitivity. Working to lift others up is your path to a great career and it can lead you to a financially comfortable life. Anything done for money alone will likely fail. Artist, nurse, counselor, therapist or publisher are all possible career choices.

Famous People with Life Path Number 9: Frank Lloyd Wright and Bob Marley

    The author of this post has undoubtedly done a great job by shaping this article on such an uncommon yet untouched topic. There are not many posts to be seen on this topic and hence whenever I came across this one, I didn’t think twice before reading it. The language of this post is extremely clear and easy to understand and this is possibly the USP of this post.
