Just like you have an astrological Sun Sign, you also have a Numerological Sun Number. This Sun Number indicates the core of who you are and can help to paint a picture as to what your soul has come here to achieve.
Sun Numbers range from 1 to 9 and each hold a particular vibration and energy that is meant to guide you on your journey.
Even though your Sun Number is only part of the picture, you can use it along with your Sun sign and Life Path Number to get a fuller picture of your energetic nature and strength and weaknesses.
Here’s how to work out your Sun Number:
Take your date of birth, for example- December 29
Add the month (12) to the date (29)= 41
Then break it down to a single digit so, 4+1= 5
This gives you the Sun Number of 5
(Keep adding the numbers together to get to a single digit, for example if you get 12 keep breaking it down further 1+2=3)
Here is what your Sun Number Means:
