THE EXPRESSION


The Expression number is derived from your full name at birth.

The Expression number is the most important of your three core name numbers.

What Is Your Expression Number?

Your Expression number reveals your physical and mental constitution, the orientation or goal of your life. Some numerologists refer to this number as the Destiny, because it represents a lifelong target at which you are aiming. You work at fulfilling this potential every day of your life. Thus, the Expression number reveals your inner goal, the person you aim to be.


The Basis of Your Expression Number

The Expression number reveals the talents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with you when you entered your human body. Your name, and the numbers derived from it, reveal your development, as well as the talents and issues you will be working with during this life.

Your individual talents and characteristics are represented by each letter in your name and its corresponding number.

Like a mosaic, these combine to form a totality, a picture that reveals the real you. Your name at birth can be seen as a blueprint of your potential. The key word here is potential.

How to Find Your Expression number

The Individual letters of your name are all assigned a specific single-digit number.

Each letter is given a number according to the place it falls in the alphabet: The letter A, being the first letter, is a 1; the letter B is a 2; the C is a 3; D is 4; and so on. Letters that come after the I (the ninth letter of the alphabet) and have double-digits, such as M, the thirteenth letter, are reduced to single digit numbers in the same way as described earlier; that is, by adding the two digits. The letter M therefore becomes a 4.

For the numerology value of each letter, see the listing below.

The value of the letters in a name

To find your Expression number, write out your full name, and place the appropriate numerology value beneath each letter.

Add the numbers of your first name, and then reduce it to a single digit. Do the same for your middle and last names.

Now, add the three single-digit numbers, and reduce them to another single-digit number to find your Expression number. If at any time you encounter a Master number, 11, 22 or 33, do not reduce it to a single-digit number.

Notice that we add the numbers of each unit of the name and reduce to a single digit or Master number. In the case of Tom Cruise, the three numbers are 22, 3, and 6.

If you have a question about which name to use

When clerical errors occur on a birth certificate, if the mistake is accepted by the parents, and form that point onward is the acknowledged name, this name on the birth certificate, with the spelling error, is used to find the Expression number.

If the mistake is not accepted by your parents, and you grow up using the original name given by your parents - ignoring the clerical error - that original name is used to provide the Expression number, as opposed to the name with the error that appears on your birth certificate.

In case of adoption

If you have been adopted, and you have been provided a new name by your adopting parents, use the original name given to you before the adoption.

If you were adopted, and never knew you original name, use the name that is the earliest remembered. However, without the original name, a complete chart may not be possible.

Other names

Names given at confirmation, by a spiritual teacher or guru, or at some other religious ceremony, are not used for the Expression number, but can be used additionally to give further insight into the personality. (See Minor Expression, Minor Heart's Desire later in this chapter.) Even if you have never used your original name, that name still represents the blueprint of your life, and is used to find the Expression number.

If you received more than one middle (or last) name at birth, use all the middle or last names.

Do not use junior, senior, the third, et cetera.
