The Ruling (Life Path) number is the path that we have chosen for this lifetime to master.
For example, let’s say your Ruling Number is the number 5. This is the life path that you have chosen to live before you were born, the decision your soul had made of what you would like to learn, master and handle in your coming life.
Number 5 energy is all about being friendly and laid-back. This is the kind of live-and-let-live attitude, and you may find that you have no time for people who are narrow-minded and judgemental. You will find yourself more drawn to spending time with people who share this same sense and love for freedom.
What you will be learning to deal with in this lifetime is learning a balance between being laid back, and yet also in control. You may find yourself struggling to be laid-back and carefree. It’s something that you will be trying to find a balance with throughout this lifetime, as you may have the deeper intentions that you would like to not care, and yet you find yourself caring too much and being too involved in things that don’t necessarily need the involvement.
Our Life Path can bring us happiness or disappointment. If we steer away from our Life Path, we often feel unfulfilled in life and that can bring us negative emotions. When we feel this, we know there is something wrong or incomplete and yet we are unable to find the root source of where it is coming from.
Sometimes when we are steering away from our Life Path we find a sense of, ‘This will do’. We are neither here nor there. We aren’t excited for what the day will bring, we are just at a flat line of comfort and routine where we go with each day and follow wherever it takes us but we are not motivated, thrilled and eager to tackle the day with what it brings us.
Your Ruling (life path) number is fantastic for bringing forward information about your life path and ways to bring you there. It provides incredible benefits to birth charts that really bring the overall chart together to give you an understanding about yourself and how to help utilize your passions, strengths and desires by bringing them into your reality.
