Numerology Meanings Explained

There are several different numerology meanings to consider when conducting a numerology reading. Different readings are conducted using different combinations of letters and dates related to your birth date and given birth name.

Life Path Numerology Number
Your life path number is determined by adding and reducing the numeric values of your birth date, birth month and birth year. This number is used to determine your overarching life path destiny.

Expression/Destiny Number
Your expression/destiny number is determined by translating the letter characters in your full given name into numeric values, then adding and reducing those numbers into one number. This reading tells you how you express yourself and what your destiny is.

Soul Urge Number
Your soul urge number is determined by adding the sum of all the vowels in your full given birth name, then reducing the numbers to one number. This number tells you what really matters to you.

Inner Dreams Numerology Number
Your inner dreams number is determined by adding the sum of all the consonants in your full birth name, then reducing the numbers to one number. This reading describes your hopes and dreams.

When calculating numerology numbers, assign number values to each letter character using this chart:

1 - A, J, S
2 - B, K, T
3 - C, L, U
4 - D, M, V
5 - E, N, W
6 - F, O, X
7 - G, P, Y
8 - H, Q, Z
9 - I, R

For example, if your name was Tim Larry Roth, your name would translate to the following numbers:

Tim 2+9+4 = 15
Larry 3+1+9+9+7 = 29
Roth 9+6+2+8 = 25

Reduce numbers down by adding them together until you have one of the following numbers: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11 or 22.  The numbers 11 and 22 are considered "master numbers" and are regarded as special. For example, the name Tim Larry Roth would reduce down as so:

Tim = 15 = 1+5 = 6
Larry = 29 = 2+9 = 11
Roth = 25 = 2+5 = 7
