    Ever have someone come up to you and ask the age old question, "What's your Sign?" This classic pick up line has been used by a whole generation of guys trying to pick up girls - with mixed results. If you ladies want a really good comeback for them, or if you are a sensitive guy who wants something fresh to use for an old cliche, try asking them for Numerology's equivalent to Astrology signs, "What's your Path?"

    Life Path - Your chief number in Numerology

    Your Life Path, is your main number in Numerology; it shows what opportunities will come your way and where your main talents and abilities lie. It's calculated using Fadic addition. This is the process of adding together your meaningful numbers, then reducing the result to a single digit.

    We do this recursively. As an example, let's calculate Johnny Depp's Life Path. Depp was born on June 9th, 1963; so first we add together the month, day, and year of his birth; then we add together the individual digits of the sum to get (25); and finally we add the (2) digits of the sum (25) to get a single digit (7).

    6 + 9 + 1963 = 1978; 1 + 9 + 7 + 8 = 25; 2 + 5 = (7)

    So Johnny Depp has a Life Path of (7).
