If Your Birthday Adds to a 1:

For example: 21st July 1989

21, 7, 1989

2+1+7+1+9+8+9 = 37


1+0= 1

In this case, you would have the Life Path number of: 1.

A person with Life Path number 1 has a pioneering spirit that is full of energy, and they often have a passion for art. Being born under the Life Path 1 gives people the strength of character and individuality inherent in leaders. 1’s have a strong desire to quite literally be ‘number one’, and their determination and self-motivation won’t let anything stand in the way of them accomplishing their goals. Their drive allows them to overcome any obstacle or challenge they may encounter, and they certainly have the ability to accomplish great things in their lifetime. Their only need is to focus on what they want in order to achieve it.

The negative impact of this vibration mean that 1’s often display traits such as laziness, selfishness, intolerance, and sometimes even aggression. They are often unable to recognise their own mistakes, and have difficulty adapting to standard norms.


For those with a Life Path 1, relationships are filled with love and affection. They are very sincere with their feelings, however their enthusiasm can sometimes frighten people away.

We are all drawn to people for various different reasons, however our choice of partner is likely to be influenced by our Life Path number. People with a 1 Life Path are most compatible with 3’s and 5’s, as they both have the kind of temperament that would work will with the bossy and opinionated 1. If a 1 happens to connect with another 1 then they may have a passionate, but short-lived relationship.


This path is often associated with independence, so when it comes to choosing a career, 1’s are best suited to being self employed or managing others. They are natural leaders. They want to leave a distinctive mark and stand out from the crowd with their unique and inventive approach to new projects. 1’s tend to have tremendous focus, and almost always become the very best at what they do.
