Shadow Number: Excerpt From the book, Numerology by Electra Valencia
The shadow number is the dark side or the opposite side of the life path number. It shows you the things that can trip you up from learning your lesson or following your life path.
To find your shadow number, subtract your life path number from 10. For instance, a 3 life path has a 7 shadow number.
Life Path Number 1 / Shadow Number 9
