“What's your lucky number?“ is a question we see often in many personality tests/quizzes. It's also not unusual for people who want to know more about us to ask us about our lucky number, along with questions about our favorite colors, movies, food, etc. Most of us already know what our lucky number is. For some, it's the number linked to their birth date or the birth date of someone close to them (e.g. their partner). For others, it's a number they keep seeing in random places throughout their lives, or a number they just feel can bring them luck. There are people, however, who don't feel a connection with any particular number. If you're someone who is wondering about your lucky number, below you will find three methods that can help you discover it.


1. Calculate Your Life Path Number

The first way to find your lucky number is by calculating your life path number. According to numerology, a person's life path number is based on their birth date and can reveal their personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, talents, or fears. Your birth date can be considered the most important date in your life. Why is that? Well, it's the day you were brought into this world! What better date to use in order to discover your lucky number? Now, in order to calculate your life path number, you simply add together the day, month, and year of your birth, until you get a single digit. For example, let's say you were born on the 13th of November, 1986. You add: 1+3+1+1+1+9+8+6= 30. Because we need a single-digit, we reduce 30 to 3. Thus, your life path number is 3. You can think of your life path number as your personal lucky number from now on.

2. Add the Value of the Letters in Your Name

Apart from a person's birth date, another thing that can reveal a lot about them is their name. Your name is the first thing someone learns about you, the first thing someone asks when they want to approach you and it's something that connects you to your identity and individuality. Well, did you know that the letters of your name can be calculated? It's another thing that numerology teaches us and it's also the method we use in order to find a person's destiny number. The process is simple and consists of five simple steps.

  1. First, you write out the alphabet from A to Z.
  2. Then, you assign each letter a digit from 1 to 9. For example, A is 1, B is 2, etc. Once you reach I (which is 9), start back at 1. If you find it too complicated, please see the key included below that pairs each number with its letters of the alphabet.
  3. Next, you write out your official full name (if you have a middle name, make sure you include it as well).
  4. Afterward, you match each letter of your name to its corresponding number.
  5. Finally, you add together all the numbers and reduce them until you have a single digit.

Let's take the name Mary Smith for example. By assigning each of the name's letters to a digit, we have 4+1+9+7+1+4+9+2+8= 45. We add 4+5 in order to get a single-digit number and the result is 9. Thus, number nine could be Mary's Smith lucky number (if she hasn't one already). Similarly, from now on you can think of the number you got by adding the value of your name's letters as your lucky number.

Which Numbers Correspond With Each Letter?

1- A, J, S

2- B, K, T

3- C, L, U

4- D, M, V

5- E, N, W

6- F, O, X

7- G, P, Y

8- H, Q, Z

9- I, R

3. Notice If a Particular Number Keeps Showing up in Your Environment

This third method has nothing to do with calculations. The thing is, you might have calculated both your life path number and the value of your name's letters and still not felt any "connection" with the numbers you got. In this case, you should search for your lucky number in your environment.

A lot of people claim that they keep seeing a particular number in various places. I'm gonna give you an example from my own experience. Ever since I was a little kid, I have kept seeing the number three almost everywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere. For example, if calculated, the numbers of my ID card, passport, and student ID (from my times as a student), sum up to three. The interesting thing is that my life path number is also three. I was also born on the 30th of November. Actually, I could go on for hours with many other examples but I wouldn't want to bore you. As you imagine, three is the number I feel connected to and of course consider it my lucky number. Taking the above into consideration, make sure you keep an eye out for any number that keeps popping up in your environment.


I hope I helped you find your lucky number! Keep in mind that the most important thing is for you to feel that a number can bring you luck. There are no lucky and unlucky numbers in general. Numbers work differently for each individual. If you have any questions about numbers and numerology, don't hesitate to ask!

      JC, I'm afraid when it comes to lotteries, all numbers have the same chances of winning. If this wasn't the case, we would all be millionaires by now, haha! What you can do however, and has worked for me a couple of times, is to bet on numbers that are somewhat important to you. Maybe your birth date or your partner's/children's birth date? Maybe your wedding anniversary? For example, I was born on the 30th of November and I always bet on 3, 6, 21, 30, 33, etc. Otherwise, just go with your intuition!
