In life, one of the things that makes us stronger is our ability to overcome the challenges we face. In numerology, the Life Challenges represent obstacles we should strive to overcome.

If you feel like something’s missing or just “off” in your life, chances are it’s one of your Life Challenges begging for your attention. Overcoming that Challenge gives you that breakthrough feeling that you probably didn’t even know you needed until you got there.

You may not overcome all of your Challenges, but you haven’t failed unless you didn’t try in the first place.

The Four Challenges

In numerology, there are four Life Challenges that we face. We’re born with these Challenges and we face them at different periods in our lives, with the exception of the Third Challenge. The Third Challenge is also known as our Main Challenge, because it challenges us throughout our lives.

Life Challenge Numbers are calculated by using your date of birth and it is one of the few times in numerology where subtraction is used. Therefore, having a “Challenge 0” is not unlikely. All numbers are reduced to the lowest possible single digit.

Example Date of Birth: October 24, 1980. Use your own date of birth to find your Main Challenge:

Challenge 1: The difference between the month and day: 10/24 (1 + 0; 2 + 4) = 1/6  = 5

(Age: Birth through 30 – 35 yrs.)

Challenge 2: The difference between the day and year of birth: 24/1980 (2 + 4; 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 18, 1 + 8 = 9) = 6/9 = 3

(Age: Mid-life through 50 – 55 yrs.)

Challenge 3: (a.k.a. the Main Challenge) The difference between Challenge 1 and 2: 5/3 = 2

(Age: Throughout life)

Challenge 4: The difference between the month and year of birth. 10/1980 (1 + 0;  1 + 9 + 8 + 0  = 18, 1 + 8 = 9)   = 1/9 = 8

(Age: 60 – 65 yrs. through remainder of life)

The Third Challenge—An Explanation

The explanation for each number in each Life Challenge period differs. The condensed explanations below (numbered 0 through 8) represent obstacles that occur in a Challenge 3 or Main Challenge period.

0: Your Main Challenge will be becoming a better person from the inside out. This is one of the least demanding of Challenges.

1: Your Challenge is to make your own way and to learn independence, rather than follow the crowd.

2: Your Challenge is to eliminate feelings of self-consciousness, rather than feeling inadequate.

3: Your Challenge is to lose self-criticism and self-doubt, rather than suppressing your authentic self.

4: Your Challenge is to be more organized and practical in daily life. Finish what you start and live a less-chaotic life.

6: Your Challenge is to have more realistic expectations of yourself and others. Be grateful and live in the moment.

7: Your Challenge is to find the child within and have more faith, rather than being skeptical.

8: Your Challenge is to not make financial status your singular focus. Live a more spiritual life.

One thought on “Numerology: Your Life Challenges”

1. Lisa

based on my chart all of my challenges are “0”. (My birthdate is 5+5+5, my name is 5+5+5, and my inner and outer numbers are both 3). Can you tell me something about whether that is unusual, and what it means to have all for challenge number the same. I am 50 and run seroes. Unmarried. No kids. Great education but no career. What might you advise?
