Numerology Relationship Compatibility Readings offered in the World Numerology App, by numerologist Hans Decoz


Your Life Path is a good indicator of your relationship's potential

The desire to impress the people we love goes to the very core of our most essential self. All living creatures have mating rituals meant to attract their intended paramour. As human beings, we have the ability to move beyond that basic desire to find deep, enduring intimacy.

Understanding the nuances of your partner (friend, co-worker, lover…) can help you sustain happy long-term relationships. And knowing more about someone you just started dating can’t hurt either.

Learn which numbers are compatible with you.


Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 1If you have a 1 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with Life Paths 3, 4, and 5. This is because both numbers have the kind of disposition that helps them put up with your sometimes forceful and opinionated nature.

There is little negative to report about this relationship compatibility. With an eye on potential challenges, continue to fully explore your respective natural qualities and enjoy a happy, enriching and rewarding life together for many, many years. You have the ability to develop your relationship to (near) perfection.


The stable, reliable, responsible 4 is also compatible in a relationship, if that 4 also has some more playful and adventurous numbers, since without those, a 4 can be a stick in the mud.

The flexible, adventurous 5 adds a dynamic energy that benefits both of you in the relationship. The loving and caring 6 also gets along quite well with a 1 (but then, the harmonious 6 gets along with just about every number). If you happen to connect with another 1, you might have a passionate but short-lived relationship - the problems created by two captains on one ship could quickly put a strain on things.


Your compatibility with the 8 is not favorable.

The authoritative, entrepreneurial 8 should be avoided, as the 1 and 8 are in a constant state of competition. Your respective numbers make you both strong-willed and somewhat stubborn people. It could often feel like there are two captains on your ship, whose conflicting viewpoints can lead to discomfort at best or explosive arguments at worst. A willingness to compromise would be extremely helpful in this relationship compatibility.


The gentle, sensitive, and diplomatic 2 can be a great complement to your traits, but they generally get along better in a work or business relationship, not a romantic relationship.

The spiritual, contemplative, and introspective 7 can be a good friend and enlightening tutor, elevating you to a higher realm of insight and perception, but this combination doesn’t usually work very well in romance.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 2If you have a 2 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with the visionary 8 or the humanitarian, aristocratic 9. The business-minded 8 is an especially good match, as your cooperative, open nature fits the decisive, industrious 8 in both romantic and business relationships.

The compatibility between these two numbers makes this a relationship with the potential to survive long-term, however, there is also the possibility of miscalculating your strength as a couple.


The relationship between the 2 and 8 is sometimes based on the ‘illusion’ or assumption that the partner will never change. The 2 admires the 8’s strength and believes it will always be there, while the 8 is attracted to2's romantic, emotional nature and expects it to be unwavering. But there will be times when strength will falter, and the heart will seem to lose interest.

However, remaining alert and responsive to each other, and not allowing issues to fester can overcome these challenges.


The classy, composed, but somewhat aloof 9 also creates a compatible relationship, as is the protective, loving and forgiving 6.

The down-to-earth, dependable 4 can initially seem to be a good fit, but may eventually bore you, and the same is true with the serious, introverted 7.


If you happen to connect with another 1, you might have a passionate but short-lived relationship - the problems created by two captains on one ship could quickly put a strain on things. However, when compromise is possible, this relationship can become harmonious and long-term.


Hooking up with a dynamic 5 Birth Number can be a wonderful, passionate, adventurous relationship and not remotely boring. However, a warning is attached - the often irresponsible and indulgent 5 can wreak havoc on a vulnerable, emotional 2.


The sunny, optimistic 3 can be a good connection, but as with the 5, the 3 lacks discipline and focus and, as a result, you may have to make up for that deficiency by carrying more than their share of the weight.

Often, the combination of 2 and 3 enhances both parties’ creativity. The sense of harmony and rhythm associated with the 2 merges beautifully with the creative powers of expression so native to the 3. Your relationship can be strengthened enormously by sharing creative interests.

Keep in mind that if beauty and love are the foundation of your relationship, the key to weathering your differences will be to discuss issues openly and frankly, with tact and sensitivity, as soon as they arise.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 3If you have a 3 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 5s and 7s. The adaptable, daring and adventurous 5 suits your need for unpredictability and adventure, while the quiet, introverted, and often mystical 7 adds depth and appreciation to your life experience.

In fact, of all the relationship that tend to get along well and actually complement and elevate each other the 5 and 7 take the prize.

The only caveat for a 3 and 5 relationship is that, while on the surface, there is little negative to say about this compatibility, a deeper look suggests that unless you consistently work on it, the happy-go-lucky nature of your relationship could become the root of persistent problems.


Your relationships saving grace is that both of you communicate well, and your verbal skills make you a popular couple. In fact, one of the things that could trip you up is your popular, social nature. Either of you could become jealous of the other. You both thrive on taking center stage and enjoy the spotlight; this has the potential to create a competitive atmosphere.


The relationship compatibility between a 3 and 7 is particularly interesting.

The differing natures of the 3 and 7 can make a relationship last for two weeks or help it remain exciting and powerful for a lifetime.

If your relationship is stable and has existed for quite some time, you may well remain soul mates for life. If the relationship began recently and has already experienced considerable ups and downs, you might be in for a very rough ride. It is also quite common for this combination to turn from romance into a deep friendship soon if there is a romantic fall-out.


The solid, practical, trustworthy 4, on the other hand, is tricky. Even though its qualities would serve the relationship well (a bit of grounding wouldn’t harm you). But when the 3 and 4 are together they seem to draw the worst from each other.

Your differing perspectives could make things difficult at times, but if you can come this, yours is actually a promising relationship. The key to making it the best relationship it can be lies in combining your individual qualities and not judging one another.


While you might initially be attracted to the authoritative and physically impressive 8, they can be highly critical - even with you. And although the 1 can be equally critical and domineering, for some reason it gets away with it and the two of you will likely get along very well.

In the end, the issue comes down to respect with both possible relationships; 3 and 1 and 3 and 8. You likely have such different views about what is important in life, you will need to accept each other’s needs and expectations.


The always forgiving and intuitive 2 can be an excellent fit too, and usually results in a lasting, harmonious relationship.


The 6, normally the most harmonious of all numbers, does not thrive well in the company of a 3, and vice versa. This is mostly due to the frivolous and undisciplined nature of the 3. This lack of focus and discipline is also the reason you should avoid a relationship with another 3.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 4If you have a 4 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 1, 6, 7, and 8. Your need for a lasting, solid relationship is stronger than any other number. This is not because you don't like to be alone, but because you value the grounded and routine lifestyle associated with solid relationships. For that reason, you will want to avoid the playful, unpredictable 3, as well as the attractive, but dynamic and restless 5.

The focused, determined 1 suits you very well in a romantic relationship.

However, a word of caution - it can be a volatile compatibility - the relationship can be as solid as a rock for a long period only to crash and burn in an instant.

Stubborn, highly motivated, a self-starter and an unconventional individualist, 5 is adventurous and ready to try anything new, even risky endeavors, they generally do whatever they want and will fight almost anyone who gets in their way.

You are no less gifted in the areas of persistence and ambition but you have a very different attitude and approach. You are solid, reliable, patient, responsible, conventional, detail-oriented, and you tend to "do the right thing and do it the right way”.

This difference is precisely where potential pitfalls lie in your relationship. The answer is patience on your part, and an acceptance of the boundaries of relationships on the part of the Birth Number 5.


The 8 is a particularly good match as both of you are organized and disciplined, but where the 8 is more of a visionary, you are detail-oriented person which creates a great combination in romance as well as business.


You also get along with the loving 6 very well but be forewarned... when a 4 and a 6 start a family it often means lots of kids.


Hooking up with the worldly and often remote 9 can be problematic - your down-to-earth and practical nature simply doesn't work well with this idealistic dreamer.


A more balanced compatibility, and often surprisingly dynamic and lasting relationship is possible between a 4 and a 7, as the spiritual, genuine and thought-provoking 7 is a constant source of wonder and admiration for you.

The areas where you may need to compromise, however, are of the more mundane, material type. While you require order and respectability (and fees uncomfortable and insecure without it), a Birth Number 7 is comfortable with a bit of chaos and is not concerned about the approval of others.

If you are successful in accommodating each other in these areas, you should be able to get as close to being “soul mates” as any two people can.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 5If you are a 5 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 1, 3, 5, and 7. You have a wide choice of potential romantic partners. However, making any one of them last will be mainly up to your partner, because while you are loyal and devoted, you are also restless and in constant need of change. Hence, your need for a partner who is neither predictable nor demanding.

The relationship compatibility between 5 Birth Number and the always daring and courageous 1 is excellent

There will rarely be boredom, complacency or emptiness in a relationship that has heads turning and people whispering. Like wind and fire, the personality traits in this combination have the potential to create or destroy, however the 1 and 5 generally compliment and respect one another.

Together these influences are like a thoroughbred and its rider; when they work in harmony, nothing can stop them. This is a relationship of intensity and highs rarely achieved by others. It carries the promise of ecstatic experiences of love, spiritual bonding and shared dreams.


The relationship compatibility between a 5 and a 3 also has great potential, but because the partners are so compatible, they sometimes enhance each other’s less desirable traits. A Birth Number 3 is upbeat, expressive, creative and playful, but not always focused or practical. A 5 is dynamic, social, and adventurous, with a tendency to overindulge. Sometimes, these traits can have a negative influence on each other. Discipline is a keyword here to making this relationship last.

If you share a home, you will have little trouble creating a living environment and a lifestyle suitable to both of you.


The protective, sacrificing 6 can also be a good match as is (surprisingly) the philosophical and earnest 7. In fact, the 7 and 5 combination is an excellent match because the dynamic, impatient, self-indulgent 5 (you) and the solemn, reclusive 7 balance each other out.


Hooking up with a practical 4 seems, on paper, to be a match made in heaven, but it can quickly turn sour as you become bored with their predictable habits (while your changing, undisciplined nature begins to offend your partner).



Your relationship compatibility is not favorable with the 8 and 9. The goal-oriented 8 and the idealistic, responsible 9 are also unwilling to put up with your continual need for constant change.


While the rule of thumb is that two people with the same Birth Number don't usually create the best romantic relationship, the 5 is the exception.

Two 5s together often form a wonderful, passionate, stimulating partnership. Since the 5 requires freedom, independence, and adventure you are particularly well suited for each other.

However, there is an ever-present danger of self-indulgence in this combination as the 5 can have difficulty with moderation (alcohol, sex, over-eating, addiction), and two 5s may have a challenging time keeping each other in check.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 6If you have a 6 Life Path you can potentially have a harmonious lasting relationship with any other number. Your willingness to sacrifice is like a safety net within any relationship. Add to that your limitless ability to give love and care, and you are everyone's favorite partner. However, that doesn't mean certain Life Path aren't more desirable or harmonious than others.

The gentle Birth Number 2 should be at the top of the list for a potentially excellent relationship compatibility.

This combination forms a strong foundation for any relationship, be it business or friendship, but particularly for romance. Both love easily and without reservation and neither of is afraid to reveal their feelings.

However, it is only in the strength of your love and your need to give that these numbers overlap. In many other respects you are quite different, and sometimes even opposites.


The conscientious and sympathetic 9 would be next because you are both focused on the welfare of others.

One attribute you share is your sense of justice; both Birth Numbers, the 6 and the 9, have a strong awareness of right and wrong. This could lead to one or both of you getting involved in politics or becoming activists or advocates for a cause. Unless you happen to be on opposing ends politically, this trait could further strengthen your bond.


The strong,  authoritative 8 is also a compatible partner, not only in romance, but the 6 and 8 combination is also excellent for business partnerships. The 8 inspires the 6 to aim higher and seize opportunities; the 6 keeps a rein on the dreams and vision of the 8. Without an 8 to inspire, the 6 will likely remain confined to small dreams requiring little or no risk. Without the grounded practicality of the 6, the 8 can get lost between creating the vision and achieving the goal.


A relationship with a 1 is also compatible, as long as both of you recognize that you sometimes differ in your opinions about what the most valuable human qualities are. Your priorities differ - no harm no foul. If you can respect this contrast and value one another’s positive qualities, this relationship has the potential to be happy and long lasting.


The 6 and 7 often have a love-hate relationship, so it is uncommon to find it in romantic partners. Where the 6 is strongly committed and motivated by emotions and a need for romance, the 7 is intellectual and somewhat secretive and distant.


The 6 and 4 share important priorities: your home, children, friends, stability and security. You are both loyal and protective of each other and those you care about. It is in your approach to life and the way you express yourselves that you are quite different. 



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 7If you have a 7 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 3 and 5. You are the least likely of all numbers to get married and stay married. There may not be a shortage of relationships, but your critical nature and your lofty dreams and expectations are difficult for anyone to live up to.

This is not as bad as it sounds, as your ability to enjoy life does not depend on a romantic, long-term relationship as much as it does for other numbers.


Many 7s form life-long relationships but they usually tie the knot later in life, and not always because they want a family.

Your needs require someone who challenges you intellectually, has a certain amount of maturity and insight, and allows you enough space and quiet time to indulge in contemplation and daydreaming – essentials for the 7.

Among the numbers most suitable to you are the witty, sunny, and creative 3, as well as the always surprising and intellectually sharp 5 because both numbers challenge you in ways no other numbers do not.

The only real source of discord that appears between the 5 and 7 is spiritual in nature. 7 may feel5s dynamic, social nature is too flamboyant or superficial at times, while the 5 might feel 7 becomes too invested in spiritual concepts, even that they are somewhat of a zealot. It is probably difficult for a 5 to understand how people can become so invested in abstract concepts and philosophies. And a 7 may find it difficult to accept that a 5 believes experiencing life is more important than analyzing it.


You enjoy the company of a 3 because their imagination expands your otherwise limited, rational thinking.

Although you have very different intellectual styles, you are both unconventional and not afraid to wander off the beaten path. You also differ in your needs and interests – but they are not incompatible. In fact, it is precisely your uniquely different intellects that make this relationship lively and interesting. To use an analogy, the 3 is like the sparkling, excited, playful child, and the 7 is the wise, more serious teacher. You complement one another and lend each other something you are not able to give yourselves.


You may not care much for the 2 because you see them as superficial and sentimental, while the 1 is just too domineering.

You perceive the 8 as overly materialistic, an absolute no-no in your world of spiritual and philosophical values.

The 9 is too aloof - you may be somewhat introverted, but you are not distant or remote - in fact, once you do make a connection, you seek depth and openness not secrecy and separation.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 8If you have an 8 Life Path your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 2 and 6. You will probably select a partner you can guide and control at least to some extent. That doesn't mean you should look for a demure doormat, but recognize you don't compromise well and you like to be in charge. For that reason, both the cooperative, diplomatic 2 and the caring, sacrificing 6 tend to be good choices, while the aggressive, independent 1 will fight you every inch of the way.


The relationship compatibility of the 8 and 2 has the potential to survive long-term, however, there is also the possibility of miscalculating your strength as a couple. The relationship between the 2 and 8 is sometimes based on the ‘illusion’ or assumption that the partner will never change. The 2 admires the 8's strength and believes it will always be there.

The 8 is attracted to a 2's romantic, emotional nature and expects it to be unwavering. But there will be times when strength will falter, and the heart will seem to lose interest. However, remaining alert and responsive to each other, and not allowing issues to fester can overcome these challenges.


Your relationship compatibility with the 6 is also favorable.

Interestingly, the 6 and 8 combination is also excellent for business partnerships.

The 8 inspires the 6 to aim higher and seize opportunities; the 6 keeps a reign on the dreams and vision of the 8. Without an 8 to inspire, the 6 will likely remain confined to small dreams requiring little or no risk, while the 8 without a 6 may tend to overreach and not have a good sense of reality. Without the grounded practicality of the 6, the 8 can get lost between creating the vision and achieving the goal.


The freedom-loving 5 is also not the best choice, nor is the creative, artistic, irresponsible 3.


As you can see, your choices are limited simply because you insist on being in charge.

An interesting aspect of the 8 is its ability to balance the material and spiritual worlds, which sounds like it should work well with a 7, but the 7 may only recognize your material side and for that reason, be uninterested. Otherwise, based on the premise that opposites attract, it might actually be a pretty good match.


A good choice, if not potentially your best, is the 4

This is not because you can control it (it controls itself) but because you are compatible in so many other ways. You are both grounded, methodical, logic-driven, practical, disciplined and goal-oriented.

In fact, while a romantic relationship between a 4 and an 8 works well because you have so much in common, a business or work relationship works even better since you also supplement each other - you see the larger picture, while no detail escapes the 4.



Relationship Compatibility for Life Path 9If you have a 9 Life Path, your most favorable relationship compatibility is with 1, 2, 3, and 6. The 9 is perhaps the most challenged of all when it comes to romance. You can be secretive and you keep your distance. Figuratively speaking, you don't like to show yourself naked, not just because it makes you feel vulnerable, which it does, but also because you judge it as lacking class and sophistication.

You have an aristocratic streak and value your sense of separation.

You can be a great and loyal friend in most relationships, but you tend not to expose your deeper fears or dreams even to those closest to you. For this reason, you enter a relationship the way someone who can't swim enters the pool - slowly and ready to back away at any time.


At the same time, there are several Birth Number that are quite compatible with you, especially the intuitive and sensitive 2, who sees through your artificial defenses.

Generally, the 2 and 9 do not get along easily - at least not if romance is not involved. Both are caring, loving numbers, the idealistic 9 prefers to focus on the world at large, to strangers and issues concerning humanity. The 2 is more emotionally involved and focuses on forming a close, cooperative relationship with one person.

Interestingly, the 2 and the 9 get along very well when the heart rules. In addition they can form powerful alliances in other circumstances, particularly business, due to the fact they complement each other's talents and strengths well. In combination they are able to negotiate with and influence just about anyone.


Another good match is the always protective and loving 6, with whom you have much in common, including a sense of community and a genuine, idealistic humanitarian streak.

Surprisingly, the 3 can also make a great connection, as both of you are creative, artistic and have imagination, and the 3s sense of humor is a wonderful offset to your more intense nature.


As far as romantic relationships, you may want to avoid the erratic 5 as well as the intellectually offbeat 7.


The 1 and the 9 are on opposite ends of the spectrum, which may be the reason they are often romantically attracted to each other and, while the two of them rarely are able to work together, in a personal relationship they often do quite well - another example that opposites attract.


From Numerology Questions - a Dear Hans column:

Raina asks whether the reason she has not been able to maintain a long-term relationship can be found in her chart.

Dear Hans,

My name is Raina ..., born 10/... at 5:30pm. My question is, does my number have anything to do with the fact that I have been unable to have a long-term relationship since my husband died almost 21 years ago? Or do I just pick men with the wrong numbers? Can you tell me what my number is and what number I would be compatible with?


Dear Raina,

Your chart makes a number of things pretty clear. First off, nothing about you is plain and simple. You have a complex chart with quite a few contradicting numbers, which by itself is not all that uncommon.

Most challenging, however, is the fact that your chart is rather lopsided.

This can be an advantage in some ways, a disadvantage in other ways. As a rule of thumb, balanced numerology charts, containing a more or less evenly spread arrangement of all or most of the single digit numbers, indicate a more harmonious life, while charts dominated by one or two numbers tend to be more challenging and difficult, especially in one's personal life. However, uneven charts often point to people with unique and focused skills and talents. What we call Keyhole Energy.

In your case, your chart is dominated by the 9 and the 7. The 9 Life Path and Personality, and the 7 Heart's Desire and Expression, as well as Maturity number, Subconscious Self, and a couple of other, less important places.

The only grounded core number is your 17/8 Birth Day number. To use an analogy, you are as withdrawn and dependent on your protective and secluded environment as a monk, while aiming to make the changes and working to better the lives of others like a politician or motivational speaker. Quite a contradiction.

You undoubtedly are as familiar and comfortable with yourself as a talkative and convincing debater as you are as a silent observer in the background. You like to analyze information looking for the hidden data, studying people to learn what makes them tick, and so forth.

Your range of possible careers is not all that wide, but working with people as well as data would be a good niche for you. Administrator, organizer, investigator, lawyer, and even politician, would all suit you well.

You mentioned that your husband past away 21 years ago, which would have been during a time when you were moving from your first long-term cycles - both, your Period Cycles and your Pinnacles - into your second cycles. The shift was dramatic, as it often is, but in your case more so than usual, as you moved from a 1 to an 8, and a 9 to an 8 respectively.

In many ways, the fact that you entered long-term cycles covered by the 8 is positive and definitely a stabilizing factor.

As for your choice of men, you are a good judge of character when your personal feelings are not involved. In fact, I could have included human resources as one of the potentially fitting careers for you. However, when it comes to your personal life, your ability to judge is severely impaired. This is due mostly to a lack of 4's and 2's in your chart.

Ironically, your Balance number is a 2 based on 11, meaning that when your life is in turmoil - unbalanced, so to speak - you suddenly find your capacity to correctly read and judge your love interest. A bit late by then, of course, but still a big plus in your life, as some people lacking 2's never reach that clarity.

The only thing you can do to prevent from entering your umpteenth disappointing relationship is to teach yourself to objectively and clinically observe and evaluate your next romantic interest the same way you would in a professional setting. I know, good luck on that one. Still, it is your best bet.

Think of it as taking a computer program and entering a detailed description of the new person in your life, then hoping the computer okays the relationship. Your mind is the computer, of course. And there is no way the info you enter about your new interest is not going to be colored by the excitement and feelings of romance, still, it is all you can do.

I looked at your future cycles, in particular your Essence and Transit cycles, and noticed that you have a 6 Essence for the three years you are 50, 51, and 52. There is no doubt you will be in a stable relationship, especially since the letter O rules your Spiritual Transit at that time.

This does not mean that you don't have a relationship before or after those years. What it does mean is that your life experience during those years is dominated by the relationship and family-like lifestyle, enough to stand out in your chart. Another positive indicator is the 11 Essence for this year (2010) and the next. You are, to put it bluntly, smartening up!

Last but not least, you entered a 1 Pinnacle cycle in 2008. You will continue to be empowered by this 1 for the rest of your life. As you probably already have come to discover about yourself, your confidence and self-awareness have grown and is slowly but surely elevating you to that level when you don't need a romantic partner anymore to feel good and content about yourself. Of course, all things tend to be better if you can share them with someone you love, but the kind of loneliness and dependence you experienced in the past, and blamed on being "alone," no longer has that kind of power over you.
