The meaning of the numbers 0-9
The single digit numbers 1-9 are the actual foundation of numerology. Every number has its own importance, strength and personality. It also has a positive and negative characteristic and each number is associated with a different Tarot card and aspect of Astrology. With the help of Numerology we can define a certain personality or at least a number of traits of an individual, which we can describe as life path numbers.
What is my personality number?
You can very easy calculate your own personality number. If you are born on the 1st, 2nd, 3th, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th it's really easy, that day is your personality number. If you are born on any day after the 9th like the 10th, 11th etc, you add up the first number with the second. For example if you were born on the 26th, you add up 2 + 6 =8. In that case, 8 is your personality number.
