Your Destiny Number

Your Destiny number reveals what you are destined to achieve in this life time. Fulfilling your destiny is not a given; it can not be fulfilled unless you make a conscious effort to fulfill it. This effort will require you to have the courage to do what love . . . not to be loved or to maintain control. (Refer to the article about abandonment issues on my website.)


Your Destiny number is decoded by adding together your month, day, and year of birth. There are two basic methods for doing this. One technique is to add the numbers representing the month, day and year of birth horizontally. If the total is a double-digit number, add the digits together to determine the single digit of the Destiny.


For example a birthday of 02/28/2003 could be written as: 2+2+8+1+9+4+5 = 31 = 3 + 1 = 4


The second method, my preference, is to place the numbers in vertical columns to determine the sum.

For example:


I prefer this method because it reveals both Master Numbers and Karmic Numbers. These are very important numbers and will be the subject for a future article.
