In celebration of Valentine’s Day, let’s take a look at how numerology can provide deeper insight into your relationship with your partner and your relationship with yourself. Goodness knows, there are times where we can all benefit from a bit of added insight!

In my opinion, one of the key ingredients for a healthy, mutually loving relationship is understanding – that is, an understanding of your partner, their wants and needs, and how they express themselves – and, of course, an understanding of yourself, your own wants and needs, and how you express yourself, too.

 If you’re looking for accurate insight into a person’s personality and behavior, then look no further than numerology and a simple date of birth! Numerology provides a fast-track way into a person’s psyche and it only takes a matter of seconds. Let me show you how it’s done and how your numbers can affect your love life.

 Let’s begin by calculating your Life Path Number, the most significant of the 7 Core Numbers in your numerology chart. (Please bear in mind there are 7 Core Numbers in a complete numerology chart and greater accuracy can only be obtained by knowing the other 6).

 How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

 Step 1: Put a plus sign between each of the individual num­bers in you and your partner’s dates of birth and add across. Make sure you write the full birth year—that is, 1969 rather than just 69.

For example: The birth date December 11, 1969 (11-12-1969) = 1+2+1+1+1+9+6+9 = 30

Step 2: Continue to add any double-digit numbers together until you get a single-digit Life Path Number, unless they total 11, 22, or 33 which then becomes an 11/2, 22/4, or 33/6 Life Path Number.

3+0 = 3 Life Path Number

Please find the Life Path Number descriptions below:

 Number 1 in Love

Number 1’s aren’t shy and they’ll go above and beyond the call of duty to conquer the object of their desire when they’re in love, however, they can also be perfectionists. Once they realize there’s no such thing as the perfect person or relationship, they’re able to love wholeheartedly.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 1

Number 1’s are leaders who like to be the boss, however, they must learn to lead alongside others as opposed to trying to control them. It’s O.K. to let them take the lead (they’re really good at it anyway), however, you can’t lose yourself in the process or allow yourself to be controlled.  

Most Compatible Numbers

1, 5, and 7

 Number 2 and 11/2 in Love

Number 2’s are the givers of the world and they love to be part of a two-some. They dedicate themselves to love and will do anything for their partner, however, in their quest to please another they often neglect their own needs in the process.  2’s often give more than they receive in love.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 2 and 11/2

2’s don’t like to inconvenience others and they find it hard to say no, so encourage them to be honest about their feelings. They thrive on emotional, physical, and mental connection. Their feelings are easily hurt; so if you’re having a bad day, explain what’s going on rather than take it out on them.

Most Compatible Numbers

2, 4, and 8

 Number 3 in Love

When Number 3’s are in love, the world is going to know about it. 3’s are big talkers with big hearts and they love to express their thoughts and feelings. They get easily bored and enjoy being kept on their toes; however, if the relationship is stimulating and fun, they’ll keep coming back for more. 

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 3

3’s love attention and they sometimes like to flirt, so don’t take it personally if you see them chatting up the waitress or cashier. They may make a mountain out of a molehill at times, but if you’re a stimulating conversationalist with a good sense of humor, you’ll have them in the palm of your hand.  

Most Compatible Numbers

3, 6, and 9

 Number 4 and 22/4 in Love

4’s won’t fall for just anyone and they don’t wear their heart on their sleeves. They prefer to be in a stable, monogamous relationship and they’re not afraid to commit. They’re reliable and honest and will do whatever it takes to create a secure relationship, family life, and home.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 4

4’s appreciate honesty, so don’t say things you don’t mean. Aside from the 22/4, they’re not overly emotional and may find it hard to express their emotions – so be patient and understanding.  4’s can be stuck in their ways, so present them with any lifestyle changes gently and gradually.  

Most Compatible Numbers

2, 4, and 8

Number 5 in Love

5’s may take a while to commit as they don’t like to be pinned down; but when there’s mental and sexual chemistry, they’re happy to give it a go. A Number 5 in love will surprise, thrill, and excite you. They’ll make you feel as if life is one great big adventure and you’ve got a front row ticket to the show. 

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 5

5’s need their freedom, so give them plenty of space to experience and explore. They love a challenge and the thrill of the chase, so keep them on their toes. Action and adventure appeal to the people-loving 5, so it helps to be social and outgoing yourself to create a harmonious match.

Most Compatible Numbers

1, 5, and 7 

Number 6 and 33/6 in Love

Number 6 is ‘in love with being in love’ and they’re not afraid to commit. They’ll dedicate themselves entirely to their relationship and do whatever it takes to ensure their partner’s needs are met. On the other hand, they can have unrealistic expectations of others and themselves.  

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 6

6’s are perfectionists who measure themselves by a very a high standard; however, one of their life lessons is to learn to accept the imperfection in others and themselves. By helping them to accept (and embrace) themselves and others as they are, you’ll improve your chances for success.

Most Compatible Numbers

3, 6, and 9

Number 7 in Love

7’s don’t trust easily, so you’ll need to earn their trust; however, once you’ve passed the test they’ll begin to open up their heart … slowly. They rarely show all of their cards at once preferring to remain guarded and mysterious, but once you have their heart you’ll know that you are loved.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 7

7’s need their space and quiet time alone to think, read, or just be – it’s vital to their wellbeing! When they run off to their cave, don’t take it as a personal rejection of your company. This isn’t a ‘personal’ thing, it’s a ‘7’ thing – so be patient and understanding. 

Most Compatible Numbers

1, 5, and 7

  Number 8 in Love

8’s thrive on achieving goals and overcoming challenges; so if they had to work to win your love, they’ll appreciate you even more. 8’s need to be appreciated and adored in their relationships, and they need to respect their partner, too. If there’s no respect, it won’t last very long.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 8

Many 8’s can be aggressive and they like to be the boss, so you need to stand your ground and not allow yourself to be intimidated. By showing Number 8 how to use their power in a positive way and encouraging them to have a healthy relationship with money, you’ll improve your chance for success.

Most Compatible Numbers

2, 4, and 8

Number 9 in Love

9’s are passionate and intense, and when they’re in love they’ll go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure you feel appreciated and adored. They’re not afraid to go for what they want and if it’s you they want, they’ll pull out all the stops until they’ve won your heart.

How to Improve Your Relationship with Number 9

9’s are very generous and enjoy doing things for others, so if you know what’s good for you, you’ll support them in their quest rather than criticize their generosity.  Many 9’s have unresolved issues from childhood, so encourage them to look forward rather than live in the past.      

Most Compatible Numbers

3, 6, and 9
