Your personality number in astrology, is calculated via your birth date.
This is how you do it.
Imagine your birth date is May the 11th 2000. Turn this into a number so 11 5 2000. ( 5 11 2000 if you are in the USA). Add the numbers together so 11 + 5 + 2000 adds up to 18.
Now add 1 + 8 and you have astrology personality number of 9.
9 is an interesting number. It is the last single digit number and many people describe this as signifying an old soul. People with 9s tend to have roller coaster lives because they are not scared of renewal and change.
So if for example your numerology number based on your name is 1 and your astrology personality number is 9, the chances are that you have both these influences.
This means the world may see you as a natural leader as suggested by numerology number 1 but the influence of your astrology number 9 signifies change and renewal. You could be the type of person who follows numerous plans and professions over your life, being influential and often successful but moving onto new challenges rather than sticking rigidly to the same life plan.
