How To Figure Out Your Destiny and Soul Urge Numbers

Figuring Out Your Destiny Number

Write out your name exactly as it appears on your birth certificate. Refer to the letter/number equivalency chart below, which gives a value for each letter in the English language. 

Add up the letters of your name. As an example, if your birth name is John Alan Doe, this is how you would figure out your destiny number.

1. J=1; O=6; H=8; N=5;    A=1; L=3; A=1; N=5;    D=4; O=6; E=5

2. Add all the numbers together:  1+6+8+5+1+3+1+5+4+0+5 = 39

3. Reduce your answer (39) to a one digit number. For example, when you add 3+9, the answer is 12. Since this is still a two digit number, you must reduce it again (1+2). Your final number is 3.

4. Next, look at the Nine Life Path descriptions on the previous blog (August 12, 2016). Remember, this number identifies potential talents and abilities, as well as your mission in life. This number may change with the influence of name changes, for example if you change your name when you marry.

Figuring Out Your Soul Urge Number

Using the letter/number equivalency chart above, add up the value of just the vowels in your name as it appears on your birth certificate. 

Let us use the John Alan Doe example again.

1.  The vowels in this name are O (in John), A + A (in Alan), and O + E (in Doe).
2.  O=6; A=1; A=1; O=6; E=5
3.  Add the numbers together   6+1+1+6+5 = 19
4.  Reduce 19 to a one digit number. When you add 1+9, you get 10, which is not a one digit number. You must then reduce it again (1+0) to arrive at your final answer, which is one.

Look at the Nine Life Paths Chart (which includes overall characteristics of each number), which is outlined on the August 12, 2016 blog. Remember, this number describes your inner motivation or reflects the foundation of your beliefs and attitude toward life. This number also reflects what you instinctively know, although it may not be obvious to the outside world.

Numerology: How To Figure Out Your Life Path Number

Here's some information to keep in mind when you are figuring out anything to do with numerology.

There are eleven numbers used in constructing numerology charts: 1 through 9; 11; and 22. Larger numbers that occur from adding the numbers in the complete birth date are reduced by adding the digits together until one of these core numbers is achieved. Eleven and twenty-two are considered master numbers, so they are not reduced. Master numbers are intensified versions of the single digit they replace. For 11, it replaces 2. For 22, it replaces 4. 

Life Path Number Calculations:

Write your birth date on a piece of paper and add up the digits. As an example, if your birth date was December 15, 1983, this is how you would figure out your life path number.

1.  December, the 12th month, equals 1+2
2.  The 15th of the month equals 1+5
3.  The year 1983 equals 1+9+8+3
4.  After you add up all those numbers, your answer is 30.
5.  You then reduce 30 down to a one digit number (3+0)

        Month      Day           Year            Total
        1+2     +   1+5    +   1+9+8+3   =     30   

                              3+0        =     3

Using this number, refer to the Nine Life Path descriptions listed below (plus the two bonus master numbers).

Remember, your Life Path Number indicates the major lesson to be learned and the potential abilities and obstacles which accompany it. This number also tells what a person is really like and what he/she is naturally best suited to do. 

Again, this is just for fun so don't take it very seriously.

Just For Fun: Numerology

Disclaimer: This is just for fun, so try not to be duly influenced by the information provided.

If you are looking for love and want to do it by the "numbers", I'll be writing a series of blog posts that tell you how to figure out all sorts of stuff using the ancient art of numerology.

Numerology, which is the study of numbers and their meaning to determine their supposed influence on one’s life, future, etc., holds some validity. However, it is all in the interpretation. Moreover, these numbers are simply indicative of patterns or cycles. Every individual has the free will to create his/her life in a personal fashion and should not feel hampered by any labels assigned by these numbers.

That said – it’s still fun to look at your personal numbers! Some of the information that can be derived from numerology includes:

Life Path/Birth Path
This number will tell you the major lesson to be learned in this life and the potential abilities and obstacles which accompany it. This is considered to be the most important number, for it tells what one is like and what he/she is naturally and best suited to do. This is derived from adding up the numbers in your birth date.

This number identifies potential talents and abilities, as well as your mission in life. This number is derived from the letters in your birth name. Keep in mind that this number can change if your name changes.

Soul Urge/Heart’s Desire
This number describes your inner motivation and reflects the foundation of your beliefs and attitudes towards life. This number, which is derived from the vowels in your name, reflects what you instinctively know but which may not be obvious to the outside world.

This number describes how you appear to others – the first impression you make. On a deeper level, it could describe the social mask you use to protect yourself. This number is derived from the consonants in your name.

Karmic Lesson
This number describes your lesson to be learned in this life. It is derived by looking at what numbers are missing from your birth name. If more than one is missing, you may have more than one lesson to learn.

My next post will tell you how to figure out your Life Path number.
