How To Calculate Your Soul Urge Number

This can make finding a relationship more straightforward as all you need to know is the person’s name, and you can use this method to find out their soul urge number. 

This can help you determine if the person is the right fit for you and determine what traits are most important to you. If you like the idea of this type of numerology and want to find happiness, read on to find out more.

What Is A Soul Urge Number?

Also known as the heart’s desire, this number is based on the vowels in your full name and is one of the five core numbers that can be found in your reading.

These include your life path number, your expression number, your personality number, and the number we’re looking at, your heart’s desire number.

You might find all these or look for a specific aspect of your being, such as how others perceive you, which would come under the personality number.

Your soul urge number can reveal to you your underlying motivations or the intentions behind many of your actions and can influence the choices you make in life, and, likely, its reach is almost everywhere.

It can extend to your surroundings, relationships, and career, so it will be worth knowing if you decide that you want some clarity.

How To Calculate Your Soul Urge Number

This is a simple calculation where you take your full name and add up the vowels until you reach a number, and the values assigned to A and I are 1, E is 5, U is 6, and O is 7, so let’s now look at a working example.

For this example, we’re going to use the name Adam John Parker, so we can start with the first name, which would give us 2, the middle name would be 7, and the last name would be 6.

So now we add 2 + 7+ 6= 15, and to get a single-digit number, we can add 1+ 5= 6, which would be your soul urge number.

The only thing that could complicate this calculation is if you have the letter y in your name, as even though it’s seen as a consonant, there are some cases where it can also act as a vowel.

In numerology, the basic rule is when the letter serves as a vowel and sounds like one, it’s considered a vowel, and this is also true when the Y serves as the only vowel in the syllable.

Examples of this are names such as Mary, Betty, Elly, and Bryan, and if the Y doesn’t provide a separate vowel sound when coupled with another vowel, it’s considered a consonant and, if used, is given the value of 7.

These people enjoy change, new experiences, and those exotic and far away places, as they are highly flexible and adaptable.

These people are domestically minded and love their homes and family, which they work hard to maintain and secure.

The desire to help others sometimes sees these people sacrificing their personal needs to help others and sometimes become too involved in personal matters.

These people like to use facts and disregard emotions and personal feelings.

As much as this ambition is, you aren’t especially good with details and may need others to help you deal with the smaller aspects of your ambition. 

Soul Urge 9

These people are perfectionists who strive to advance humanity’s cause and make each person’s life a lot better.

These people are highly intuitive but aren’t good judges of character.
