First, Big News! I’ve been busy getting my book ready for publication, and it is now available. You can download it on Just enter the title in the search bar: You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology. This book is going to help so many people wake up and live their purpose.

Here is an excerpt from the book that describes how to find your direction in life. Finding your Direction Number is the next step after finding your Birth Name (Purpose) Number (see blog post “The Big Question – What is Your Purpose?”). I have shortened the excerpt to keep it more in accordance with blog parameters. The book has much more information.

Chapter 6 – Your Direction (Birth Date Number)

Your Direction number tells how you chose to accomplish your purpose. It is expressed in your career – your way of life. If you are happy with your work, chances are you are in alignment with your direction. If you don’t like your job, your direction number will show you why.It would be a wonderful and rewarding adventure to create a career that is in alignment with yoursoul’s direction. Can you imagine having a job you love?

To reveal your direction number, add the month, day, and year of your birth date and reduce the total to a single number. Use all four digits of your birth year.

Example: Janet’s birth date is June 12, 1972

June = 6:     12 = 1 + 2 = 3:     1972 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 2 = 19 = 1 + 9 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1

Add the final numbers together: 6 + 3 + 1 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 (10)

Janet’s Direction number: 1

    1. Hi Brenda,
      I shortened the number interpretations in this post quite a bit because of space considerations, so maybe this expansion will shed more light. With 8 as a Direction number, you like to be in charge. Eights like to run their own businesses or have charge of their own area in a larger business setting. When it comes to organization, which you are good at, you do not suffer fools gladly. You are a material girl, in that you appreciate fine things and prefer quality over quantity. Your work is always the best you can possibly produce. Your interest in hunting and fishing reflects your focus on the physical. You like to see concrete results in your work, because they give you the feeling of achievement you need in your life.


      1. Hi Nancy,

        Ah, that is very enlightening, and pretty much right on the mark. It’s also interesting, because I am very physical, and most people don’t expect that of me. You’ve only met me a few times. Did this surprise you?

        Not really, Brenda. I’ve learned that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can trust what the number says.


  1. If anyone has a question about the interpretation of their number, please post it. The interpretations in this post are sparse because of space considerations. I may edit this post and publish the complete interpretations if enough people comment.
