Life Path Number 3

The Creative Communicator!

Life Path Number 3

As a 3 Life Path, you possess a great talent for creativity and self-expression. The 3 Life Path is meant to perform and take center stage, however you personally define this.

You love creativity, communication, and connecting with people. The 3 energy is truly the energy of joie de vivre (the joy of life). If you’re working the constructive aspects of the 3 energy, you’re connected with your emotions—and you have a lot of them. You communicate brilliantly and clearly. You consolidate information easily and know how to rework that information into new ideas. You embrace your brimming creative impulses with gusto.

You are witty, possess a gift for gab, and savor the limelight. Your talent for expressive arts is so abundant that you may well have felt drawn to becoming an artist while still very young. However, your artistic abilities can only be developed through discipline and commitment to the true development of your talent.

You’re a natural writer, actor, counselor, or teacher. Any profession where you can present your ideas to an audience is right up your alley. You aren’t a 9-to-5 job person; you don’t necessarily work well under the supervision of others or within a rigid structure.

Part of your life’s purpose is to develop impeccable communication on all levels.

Your creativity is the "gift" that can give you the comfort and luxury you desire, but not without continual focus and discipline.

You are optimistic, and you possess the resilience to overcome many setbacks. You are socially active, popular, and inspire people with your sunny happy-go-lucky attitude. You can be generous to a fault. Many people born under 3 Life Path have difficulty handling money, because they can be disorganized, and not particularly serious about their responsibilities.

You are emotional and vulnerable. When hurt, you withdraw into a cloud of silence, eventually emerging from reticence with jokes and laughter that cover up your feelings. You can become moody and cynical when depressed. You can succumb to sarcastic remarks. When used positively, your talent for self-expression can be great inspirational force in the world, uplifting others, and bringing much success and happiness for you.

One of your biggest obstacles is your intense self-doubt. Feelings of insecurity can stop you in your tracks and literally stun you into submission. While everyone experiences self-doubt at certain times in their lives, this is a ruling factor of your life when you’re on the 3 Life Path.

Avoid getting stuck over-analyzing or over thinking every single thing. You’ll mud wrestle with “analysis paralysis” over and over again.

In relationships, you can be romantic and fiercely loyal. You have a tendency not to let go of past relationships. You mull them around in your head again and again, picking apart things said and done, what could’ve been and what wasn’t. You level blame on yourself and on others. You tend to obsess over the smallest emotional hooks that bog you in a pool of cynicism or emotional defeat.

The 3 Life Path can struggle with depression, experiencing extreme highs and lows. If you’re not using your talents, you’ll experience mood swings. When you realize that your journey is an emotional one, you can learn how to manage the ups and downs more effectively. You must be careful about with whom you spend your time because you will attract “takers” if you aren’t careful.

Overall, you can be the life of the party: clever, witty, the clown, entertaining, and good company. You make a great host or hostess and people feel nurtured and comfortable around you. You make it all look so easy.

In fact, one of the pressures of the 3 Life Path is that you’re so good at everything you do you have a difficult time choosing what to focus on. So many ideas, so little time.

It’s not surprising to find many 3 Life Paths in entertainment, politics, or any other industry that requires expert communication skills, intellect, and a good sense of humor.

Common threads when a 3 Life Path is working with optimal energies are being dynamic, self-assured, joyful, emotionally balanced, expressive, and inspiring.
