Numerology is the study of numbers and how they are linked to various dates, events, situations and human traits. It teaches us that dates, letters and events have a numerical value. Once decoded, numerology can help a person overcome their challenges and/or give them life-altering answers to key questions that help them reach their full potential. A person's life path number is considered the most important numerological aspect, and it is generally recommended to research this number before you further explore numerology. This article explores and analyzes the number seven, the most mysterious life path number.

In order to calculate your life path number, simply add together the day, month and year of your birth, until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born on the 14h of January, 1972, you add 1+4+1+9+7+2 = 25 = 2+5= 7. Your life path number is 7.

What Does a Life Path Number Seven Mean?

What you'll notice first when you meet someone with a life path number seven is that they're loners by nature. The more alone time they get, the happier they are. They spend countless hours studying and/or working, almost always losing track of time. These are people who need to isolate themselves in order to think, meditate or just sit quietly without doing anything. What excites them the most in life, is studying and understanding human nature and the universe around them—they're always searching for that deeper meaning. Human interactions are their weak spot—they're neither sociable nor adaptable. What is more, sevens are very clever, observant and don't stop until they've found all the hidden answers. They usually choose professions that have to do with either science and technology or the paranormal field.

Fun Facts About the Number Seven in Numerology.

Relationships With the Number Seven

As mentioned above, this number is far from social and tends to avoid any human interactions. People with a life path number seven usually distance themselves from the people around them, so it's pretty difficult to get close to them. They are shy, introverted and prefer silence over talking. Sevens don't communicate their feelings easily—in fact, they rarely communicate them at all. However, once they catch feelings for someone, they're deep and last for a very long time. Everything is deep with this number, so they dislike superficial and short-term relationships. What is more, sevens are loyal and generous but often find it hard to take care of others.

What Do Number Sevens Find Attractive?

People with a life path number seven are not ones to put themselves out in the dating world. They would rather spend time with their books and their studies rather than with people. So, when they meet someone they actually feel attracted to, it is usually by chance. Shy, timid and introverted people with the same way of thinking and a similar approach to life are generally more likely to attract sevens. This number needs someone who likes quiet, silence, has a lot of patience and is capable of allowing their partner to have a lot of alone time.

Lessons People With This Life Path Number Need to Learn

Almost all of this number's challenges and following lessons have to do with its tendency to isolate from the world and avoid any human interactions. Humans, however, are by nature social animals. We learn much more about life by experiencing it, rather than through reading books. It is essential that people with a life path number seven interact more with humans, go out of their house more, make some friends and in general not turn their back to the world. Furthermore, sevens are intellectual explorers, working extremely hard in order to find the underlying, hidden truths of everything. Their perfectionism, however, can often make them obsessive and raise unrealistic expectations. Finally, they need to be more lenient towards themselves and, of course, others.

Those were the most crucial things there are to learn about life path number seven. Although our life path number carries the most weight, a person can of course be affected by more than one number. There are actually four more numbers (which, along with the life path one are called "basic" numbers) that form a person's numerology profile—the destiny, soul, personality and maturity numbers. If you have any questions about the challenging life path number seven, don't hesitate to ask as numerology can seem quite complicated at first.
