As there are only nine numbers, and so there are nine possible Life Paths, their descriptions are necessarily general and symbolic. They are like nine melodies, and each of us is a unique musical instrument that undertakes to play one of the melodies in his or her own way.
Some Life Paths are relatively easy and enjoyable, others can be very challenging. Not all of us decide, or are able, to follow their Life Path. However, it is always useful to know where your Life Path goes because if you do follow it, you might discover in yourself hidden talents, or outside forces that come to help you on your Path.
