The Strange Phenomenon of the 2 Life Path

The Strange Phenomenon of the 2 Life Path

Do you have a 2 Life Path?

Numerologist Hans Decoz - numerology content by Decoz

The 2 Life Path stands apart from other single-digit Life Paths numbers for a unique reason: It is the rarest of all Life Path numbers.

There is only one way to arrive at a 2 Life Path, and that is when the three units of your birthdate (month, day, and year) add to 20.

All other single-digit Life Path numbers can be arrived at in various ways.

For example, a 5 can be based on 14, 23, 32, 41, or 50. A 7 can be based on 16, 25, 34, 43, or 52. But a 2 Life Path can only be based on 20. The numbers 29, 38, 47, or 56, all reduce to 11, which is a Master number. Master numbers (11, 22, and 33) are not further reduced the way other double-digit numbers are.

This article assumes that you have a basic understanding of how Life Path numbers are calculated. If you do not, no worries, just click here. It is extremely simple, even if you hate math.

A 2 Life Path is therefore by definition the rarest of all single-digit Life Path numbers.

The statistical possibility of arriving at any single digit number (other than 2), is about 11%. For an 11 Master number it is about 9%, while the chance of finding a 2, a 22, or a 33, is only about 1 or 2 percent each.


The 2 Life Path is in a class by itself, which is not well understood.

Here is why it matters.

All double-digit numbers divisible by 10 are considered the purest and most sharply defined numbers (10, 20, 30, etc.), they are called high-octave numbers because they are not diluted by the influence of another number. Whereas double-digit numbers that consist of identical digits are either Master numbers (11, 22, or 33), or power numbers (44, 55, 66, etc.), for the simple reason they have twice the effect of a single digit (44 = twice a 4, etc.).

The purest double-digit numbers are those where the second digit is 0 (zero), as the 0 does not alter the essence of a number.


In addition to the qualities of the single-digit number they reduce to, all other double-digit numbers have at least some of the qualities of other numbers and are therefore less defined, and less pure at their core.

The number 21, for example, has all the qualities of a 3 (2 + 1 = 3), but since it is a 3 based on the 2 and the 1, it also has some of the qualities of those numbers in its makeup. A numerologist would recognize a 3 based on 21 as more sensitive (2) and goal oriented (1) than other 3s. The number 42 is a 6 (4 + 2 = 6), and has all the traits typical to a 6, but is more grounded (4) and emotionally vulnerable (2) than a 6 based, for example, on 15, which is more ambitious (1) and adaptable (5).


What a 2 Life Path represents.

The 2 is all about peace and harmony.

It is intuitive, sensitive, tactful, and highly conscious of other people’s emotional state. The 2 is feeling, empathy; it recognizes the subtle signs before others do. It is a seismograph, a polygraph, and a barometer all in one.

The 2 Life Path is the most supportive of all numbers. If you are experiencing a difficult and emotionally stressful time, you want the 2 on your side. And make no mistake, while the 2 Life Path is gentle, it is also extremely resilient and, like water, will eventually overcome even the toughest obstacles.

A 2 Life Path has enormous potential in many areas, from politics to human resources, from music (especially rhythm) to math; if the rest of the chart supports it, the sky is the limit.


There is nothing willy-nilly about numerology's calculation methods.

This often ignored and misunderstood truth, when it is not applied, can cause confusion and capricious results.

The algorithm for the Life Path is a good example; it must be done correctly, or you could miss a Karmic or Master number, or worse, create one where it does not belong.

Unfortunately, this happens quite often. In the five decades I have practiced numerology, I have encountered many people who had a 2 Life Path that had previously been told they had an 11 Master number, because they read a superficial article or went to an amateur numerologist. When that happens, explaining they have a 2 Life Path based on 20, does not usually go over well, because most everyone likes the idea of having a Master number Life Path. This is ironic, because if you understand the properties of Master numbers and the way they influence your life (they can be very difficult to master) you would most likely choose a 2 Life Path based on 20 over an 11 in a heartbeat.
