What is the Soul Urge Number in Numerology?


Your Soul Urge is based on the vowels in your full name at birth and is one of the three core name numbers in your reading. It is part of the larger picture of who you are.

Your Soul Urge number shows your underlying motivation, or the general intention behind many of your actions. It dramatically influences the choices you make in life. The influence of your Soul Urge is everywhere - in your career, your environment, friendships, and life style.

Your Soul Urge number is considered one of the three core name numbers in your chart.


How do I calculate the Soul Urge number?


To calculate a Soul Urge number, reduce the sum totals of the vowels of each name to single digits (unless you encountered a Master number 11, 22, or 33 - in which case you don't reduce them).

Add those totals and reduce them again to a single-digit number, this will be your Soul Urge.

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

Let's use Thomas John Hancock's chart as an example:

(Always place the numbers for the Soul Urge above the name in a numerology chart. The space below the name is used for the Personality number.)

The name Thomas has 2 vowels, O and A, with the values 6 and 1 resp., which totals to 7.
The name John has 1 vowel, an O, which is 6.
The name Hancock has two vowels, A and O (1 and 6), which adds to 7.
Thomas's Heart's Desire is therefore 7 + 6 + 7 = 20, which reduces to 2.


What a Soul Urge number means


Numerology views your personality from different angles. Your Soul Urge (or Heart's Desire) is the inner you; it shows your underlying urge, your true motivation, and it dramatically influences the choices you make in life.

The Soul Urge is seen as part of the larger picture, which includes the Life Path, Expression, Day you were born, and Personality. But each points to a different side of you.

Your Expression number reveals your talents and abilities, and your general direction in life.

Your Life Path is the central lesson you came into the world to learn.

The Day you were born is very closely connected to the Life Path and reveals specific talents you possess.

Your Personality reveals how people tend to see you. It also demonstrates what characteristics you are projecting to the world.
