How numerology works

On a basic level, numerology is a system that assesses an individual or a couple’s relationship to certain numbers based on their birthdates. It can also be used to predict either good fortune or calamity on certain dates. Similar to astrology, it’s a practice that has ancient roots in the early science and philosophical theories of a variety of Asian and European cultures, but is now more closely associated with mysticism and divination.

When it comes to selecting the best wedding dates, numerology can be used to show you when you and your partner would have the most luck and divine favor imbibed into your marriage.

Calculating your important numerology figures

Numerology organizes people into a few, general types of people, using their birth date. The numbers of your birth date are added up to create a life path number, which is essential to using numerology to choose the best wedding dates. You and your partner should use these calculations to find both of your life path numbers, then scroll down to find your ideal wedding date info.

Life Path Number Formula = Birth Month Number (1-12) + Birth Date Number (1-31) + Birth Year

The key here is to make sure you get each set of numbers to a single digit before adding it to any additional number. Don’t worry, it’s easier than it sounds! Here’s an example:

Brittany’s birth date is October 16, 1990, so her life path number is 9. This is how we know that:

10 (October) = 1 + 0 = 1

16 = 1 + 6 = 7

1990 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 0 = 19.

19 = 1 + 9 = 10

10 = 1 + 0 = 1

1 + 7 + 1 = 9

Life Path Number: 9

Brittany’s fiancé’s name is Ted, and Ted’s birthday is January 12, 1992. Ted’s life path number is 7, and this is how we know that:

1 (January) = 1

12 = 1 + 2 = 3

1992 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21

21= 2 + 1 = 3

1 + 3 + 3 = 7

Life Path Number: 7

Now you’ll need to know your marriage number to find the best wedding dates with numerology. Just add both of your life path numbers together, and continue adding until you get to a single digit. Here’s Brittany and Ted’s example marriage number calculation:

9 (Brittany’s life path number) + 7 (Ted’s life path number) = 16

1 + 6 = 7

Their marriage number if 7.

Once you find out those three numbers (both of your life path numbers and your marriage number), there’s a ton of info on the Web about what that says about your strengths and weaknesses as a couple, and which wedding dates you definitely shouldn’t try to book with your venue.

Finding your best wedding dates, numerology-style

There’s a lot of variation in how you would determine the date that’s going to be meaningful and auspicious for your relationship. Generally, dates that equal either 1 or 9 are fortuitous for couples, according to numerology. An example of a date that equals 9, for example, might be November 23, 2018, a Friday wedding date that happens to be the day after Thanksgiving. Despite this, that weekend is a fairly popular time to be married for Dallas couples, according to the wedding date tool, so you might have some competition for that lucky number!

Another way to choose your wedding dates with numerology is to select a date that would equal your marriage number, or one of your life path numbers.
