The first calculation to make for a numerological chart is the birth date. The date needs to be written out in the mm / dd / yyyy format. For example if you were born on January 23rd of 1980 it would be 01/23/1980. If you add the numbers of the birth date together you will have the Life Path number. In the example given, it would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 or 24- which then decreases to 2 + 4 or 6. The Life Path number is a representation of who you were when you were born and How those ingrained experiences will take you through life. Remember that the numbers need to be between 1 and 9 except for the master numbers. Do not reduce 11 or 22 as they are the master numbers and a valid result to have.
Those with a Life Path number of 6 will have a life defined by nurturing, domesticity, truth, righteousness and justice. They are the best caretakers of anyone- whether that is expressed in an actual family environment or one they create in their social sector or work environment. Strong convictions and principles define this person's character.
They like to feel that they are useful and are a fountain of advice, support and service. Their family, friends and home define their life and they are sure to focus their energies on the preservation and nurturance of these aspects. Responsibilities come easily for these people- so much so that they are willing to pick up any other people are struggling to carry. They have very broad shoulders and can carry many burdens.
They are devoted and loyal lovers. It is likely that their nurturing nature will attract people that are in need of protection and care. Harmony is needed in a relationship since these people do not deal well with stress. If they lose their sense of balance, they can become controlling and dominating. With balance, they are compassionate and strong.
Sympathetic and generous, they are likely to do out out much of their emotional and material selves to assist others. Early in life, they develop a wise insight that can see into the problems and natures of others and provide the solutions. Old souls, they are often able to achieve success early on. But they can take on too many responsibilities for even their strong shoulders to bear.
A rare person with a Life Path of 6 will try to rid themselves of responsibilities alike but they will end up feeling guilty and will ever pick back up on their correct path. These people can also become overly critical of themselves and others. They can lose their sense of humility and modesty and begin to exaggerate. They may also slip into a certain self righteous. But the upside of this number is that the person will be able to see where they are making the mistakes and make the movements to correct it. Occasionally, they will find their balance again and everything will be valid.
