What is name numerology?
Numerology believes in the importance of one’s name. The name you are given at birth holds great emotional and spiritual significance. It reveals energy vibrations surrounding your life and can uncover the events that you will experience on your life path. Name numerology uses one’s name at birth because even if you change your name during life, you will still carry the energies of your birth name. Think about both the new and the original name to get more perspective on who you are today and who you can become.
How can name numerology help you?
- Using name numerology is a fascinating way to reveal someone’s strengths and talents, as well as weaknesses and challenges.
- You can also discover your true purpose and realize the path of your soul on this life’s journey.
- Name numerology could also help reveal any influences that you have carried over from previous lifetimes, which will be very helpful for understanding how your personality is shaped by those.
Numbers hidden in your name
In numerology, some numbers of your chart are calculated based on your date of birth, while for others you need to use your full name. Here are the numbers that you can find out using your name:
1. Heart’s desire/soul urge number
You need to use the vowels in your name to calculate this number. It reveals your true motivations and desires in life, as well as the direction you will take.
2. Expression/destiny number
This number is calculated using all the letters in your name and it represents your dreams, wishes, desires, and your true being. This number reveals how you show yourself to the world as well as how the world sees you. Even though this number is called destiny number, it does not reveal your destiny – you use your life path number for that.
3. Quiescent self/personality number
Knowing this number will help you learn about the part of yourself hidden from the world, such as your inner dreams and hopes. It is calculated using the consonants in your name.
Since we have covered the numbers that are calculated from your birth name, let’s also take a look at the numbers calculated using your date of birth. Those are:
- Life path number
This number can reveal your destiny, purpose, and direction in life, as well as the lessons the universe has prepared for you.
- Birth date number
As the name itself suggests, this number is calculated only using your day of birth. You do not need to take into account the month or the year of birth, just the day.
Now that you know the basic core numbers in numerology, it is important to understand that both your birth date and your name play a very important role in shaping your character and destiny. Every letter of your name carries its own energy vibrations, and each of them reflects the intention of your soul in this lifetime. By shaping your world and your perceptions of it, your name and your date of birth represent your true self on this planet.
Calculating your name numerology number
When you are creating your numerology chart, you will be making many calculations based on your name and birth date. However, finding out your name numerology requires adding together two important numbers such as life path and expression number. First, you will need to calculate those separately.
Calculating life path number
Calculating your life path number is easy. All you need to do is to add the numbers in your date of birth and keep adding until the number is reduced to a single digit or one of the master numbers (11, 22, 33).
Let’s demonstrate this using the example of someone born on July 12, 1971.
You can add the day, month, and year separately, then keep adding them together like this:
Month: 0 + 7 = 7
Date: 1 + 2 = 3
Year: 1 + 9 + 7 + 1 = 18 → 1 + 8 = 9
Calculation: 7 + 3 + 9 = 19 → 1 + 9 = 10 → 1 + 0 = 1
Thus, you get the life path number 1.
Calculating expression number
To calculate your expression number, first you will need to grab a numerology chart. Depending on whether you do Pythagorean or Chaldean numerology, the charts will be different. Since Pythagorean numerology is the most common, here we will demonstrate calculations based on its numerology table.
Here is the Pythagorean chart for reference
Calculating expression/destiny number involves adding numerical values of letters in your name and reducing to a single digit, as in the example above. For example, the expression number for Jane Mills will be calculated in this way:
A = 1
N = 5
E = 5
M = 4
I = 9
L = 3
L = 3
S = 1
First name: 1 + 1 + 5 + 5 = 12 → 1 + 2 = 3
Last name: 4 + 9 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 20 → 2 + 0 = 2
Calculation: 3 + 2 = 5
Jane’s expression number is 5.
Adding the two to find name numerology
Jane Mill’s name numerology is the sum of her life path and expression numbers: 1 + 5 = 6.
