Have you come across someone who is usually a mediator in your group? Are you someone who prefers harmony over conflict? 

If you can relate to either of the above questions, you should definitely know about Life Path number 2.

Life Path 2 personalities are peace lovers and mediators. There’s much more to know about them.

Calculating Life Path Number

A birth date needs to be reduced to a single digit to get a Life Path number. Here’s how it works

  1. Write a birth date in the MM/DD/YYYY format. 
  2. Add all digits in that birth date. For example, I have considered Barack Obama’s birth date i.e. 08/04/1961. Adding up all the digits 0+8+0+4+1+9+6+1= 29 (result to 29.)
  3. If the sum comes out as a two-digit number, add those two digits. In the above example, I got 2+9=11.
  4. Since I got a two-digit number again, I will add the digits together and reduce it to a single digit. It will result in 1+1=2.
  5. This denotes a Life Path number. Thus, the Destiny Number of Barack Obama is 2. 

Likewise, you can find your Life Path or Destiny Number using the steps above.
