Do Your Own Numerology reading: The expression

In numerology, the letters of the alphabet are assigned a single-digit value.


Write out your full name and place the numerology value beneath each letter. Add the numbers of your first name, then reduce it to a single digit. Do the same for your middle and last names. Next, add the three single-digit numbers, and again reduce them to a single-digit number.

The numerology value of letters and numbers in your name.

If at any time you encounter a Master number, 11, 22 or 33,  do not reduce it to a single-digit number.

The chart below is a screenshot of one of our 3 free chart calculators included in the World Numerology App.


Let's use Thomas John Hancock as an example:

Numerology chart of John Hancock - used as an example for this numerology lesson

This numerology chart shows his full name in the top left, with the numerology values of the letters below them. (This chart system, as well as a Numerology Chart Calculator and the Proportional Numerology Chart, come with the free download of our app - also includes your Daily Forecast)


The number value of the letters in Thomas totals 22 (Master numbers are not reduced!).

The number value of the letters in John totals 2.

The number value of the letters in Hancock totals 1

His full name at birth totals 22+2+1=25. 25 Reduces to 7 (2+5)

John Hancock's Expression number is 7 (We right this as 25/7 - you can see this number in the triangle next to his full name)
