The Birthday Number in Numerology and How to Find Yours

Numerology, the ancient metaphysical art that relates symbolic meaning to numbers, holds a wealth of wisdom when it comes to understanding ourselves and our life’s purpose. One of the key numbers in a Numerology chart is the Birthday Number because it points to the part of our individuality that may be helpful to others. By analyzing the numbers present in our literal day of birth, we can uncover valuable insights into an important layer within our personalities.

The birthday number is significant to one’s Numerology chart because it represents the natural talent that a person brings into the world. It is considered to be one of the most important numbers in a chart because it can reveal a special gift, skill, or ability that could be obvious within one’s personality. Conversely, it may be potential that is untapped or hidden. Whether each individual has knowledge of this talent depends upon their level of self-awareness.

While the Life Path Number is calculated from the sum of our birth date, month, and year, the Birthday Number focuses solely on the day we were born. Therefore, this number is much easier to calculate because it is either a single-digit number or must be simplified from a double-digit number. It doesn’t matter the year or the month that a person was born when calculating the Birthday Number; only the day.

For example, if a person was born on the 2nd, their Birthday Number would be 2. If they were born on the 20th, their Birthday Number would also be a 2. When it comes to the double-digit birthday, like the 14th, this requires simplification. In this case, we would need to add 1 and 4, which would give us a 5 Birthday Number. While individuals born on the 30th would have a Birthday Number of 3, anyone born on the 31st would have a 4.

The only exceptions to this rule are the two Master Numbers, 11 and 22. In Numerology, these numbers are never simplified. This means that anyone born on the 11th or 29th will be a Master Number 11. Likewise, those born on the 22nd will be Master Number 22.
