Calculating Your Life Challenge Numbers
In Numerology, practitioners use subtraction
to find three individual numbers that represent life challenges.
The interpretations of these numbers represent the obstacles,
hurdles and difficulties that one is most likely to face
during certain phases of life.
The first number that is calculated is your Early Challenge
number. This represents difficulties that you will face
during the first 28 years of your life.
The second number that is calculated is the Middle Challenge
number. This represents difficulties that you are likely
to face during the second 28 years of life.
The third number is the Main Challenge number. This number
not only emphasizes the difficulties that you will face
during the latter part of your life but it also represents
the chronic obstacles that you will face during your entire
The Main challenge number is considered to be the most
dominant of all the challenge numbers. The main challenge
number takes precedence over the other two because it represents
obstacles that may come from within. It is the devil (the
issue) that you often find yourself wrestling with your
entire life. It is the question that burns inside you that
you have always hoped would somehow be answered before you
The Early Challenge number are less influential which may
represent more episodic or situational problems. Early challenge
numbers can indicate problems due to circumstances or parents.
It can also represent internal. These problems of course
can disappear as the child matures and enters the middle
years of the life cycle.
The Middle Challenge number is also situational and usually
the result of hardship or complications brought on by other
individuals in your life. The number can also represent
behavioural problems as well as interference from natural
forces that are beyond your control.
Your first step to calculating any of the challenge numbers
is to reduce your day, month and birthday down into a single
digit. For example, my birthday July 20, 1958 reduces down
Remember to reduce all numbers including master numbers
down to a single digit in order to perform this calculation
Calculating life challenge numbers is slightly different
than other numerology calculation because the sums that
comprise the Month, Day and Year of birth are not added
together. Instead they are treated as individual sums that
can be subtracted from each other, always subtract the lower
number from the higher number.
To calculate your Early Life Challenge number subtract
the difference between the MONTH and the DAY of your birth.
In my case it would be 7-2 = 5. My early life challenge
number is 5.
The second calculation is for the Middle Life Challenge.
This means finding the difference between the DAY of birth
and the Year of Birth. 7-2 = 5. My middle life challenge
number is also 5.
To find your Main Life Challenge number find the difference
between the first your Early Life Challenge Number and your
Middle Life Challenge Number. Subtract the lower number
from the higher number. In my example the resulting equation
is 5 (Early Life Number) - 5 (Middle Life Number ) = 0.
My main challenge number is 0. In this particular numerology
reading there is an interpretation for the number 0.
If you get the same number twice or even three times it
means that challenge may be doubly emphasized in your life.
For example if your Early Life Challenge number is the
same as your Middle Life Challenge Number then problems
from your childhood may dominate all of your years. It can
also mean that many of the obstacles that you have had to
face were not of your own making.
If your Main Challenge Number is the same as your Middle
Life Number then many of the problems you encounter could
be caused by the decisions you are making as an adult. Reading
the interpretation of that number could give you clues as
to how you often manage to be your own worst enemy.
If all three of your numbers are the same then it is safe
assume that the cosmos is trying to make you learn a life
lesson by manifesting unpleasant situations wherever you
