Birthdate numerology compatibility requires using a simple mathematical formula. To start, you will need yours and your partner's complete birth date. Then, you add it down and compare the compatibility.

How to Calculate Birthdate Numerology Compatibility

While you can often get an accurate reading by using just the day of your birth, it's always best to use your complete birth date. You'll need to use a simple formula to add down your birth date and your partner's birth date. Be sure you use only the numeric value of your birth date.


Month + Date + Year = Life Path Number

Birth date Example: June 5, 1972

This birth date will be added down:

6 + 5 + 1972 = 11+1972= 1983 = 1+ 9 + 8 + 3 = 21 = 2+1 = 3

A numerologist will write this number for you as 21/3. Traditional numerologists will always use the two sets of numbers when discussing your report.

You'll do the same thing for your lover's birth date.
