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 reduces to 2 + 4 or 6. The Life Path number is a representation of who you were when you were born and how those ingrained traits 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 2 are born with the ability to become great mediators. They have an innate ability to listen to what others are saying and truly here them. Diplomacy, mediation and repairing come naturally to this person and they are able to achieve much through persuasiveness rather than force. They are idealistic, intuitive, revolutionary and intelligent. Fairness and balance are easy for these people since they can easily understand every side of a situation and weigh them accordingly. Their willingness to help others stems form a sincere belief that people are inherently good. They are open and honest in all that they do and maintain proper manners and speak with a great deal of tact. They operate well in a group situation where they are able to help others in some way. Compromising and maintaining a harmonious environment are important to these people- more so than monetary success, praise or occupational respect.
They are locked in to a routine and prefer what is familiar to them already. The ability to make correct judgments based on analysis which can come in hand in the work environment. There is a tendency to be a perfectionist in their work. As a part of a team, they tend to be the idea person rather than the leader.
There is a nervousness associated with those who have a Life Path number of 2. Opinions might be so strong that they are prejudiced against things they don’t like and blind to the flaws of their preferred position. A combination of their nervous energy and oversensitivity can lead to the occasional outburst, which will seem odd to others since it isn’t seemingly in their nature. Sometimes their strengths can turn against them and they can have trouble making it out of the gate as far as decisions are concerned. Even if they do accomplish their goals, there is a tendency to not be satisfied with what they have achieved. Pessimism may kick in and further limit what they are able to accomplish.
It is likely that these people will avoid any career path that involves too much competition since they don’t like conflict. Any position that allows them to guide or counsel others will bring out their strengths. Their idealism towards the world points inward as well and it can create unrealistic expectations for all involved.
