What is Numerology?
Numerology seeks to examine the future through numbers. It identifies core personality traits based on numerical values. Some interesting Numerological numbers include birth path number, destiny number, name number, personal year number, and Karmic number (or life lesson number). We will show you how to calculate your destiny and name number, in this article.
How to Calculate your Destiny Number
Calculating your Numerological destiny number requires you to use the numbers in your date of birth. First, add all the single digits together. If your answer is a two-digit number, simplify it by adding up the single digits that makes up that two-digit number until you arrive at a single digit number; which is your destiny number. There is an exception to this rule, however, the numbers eleven and twenty-two are special cases and should be evaluated as the two digit number eleven or twenty-two.
Calculating your name number requires you to convert the letters in your name to a corresponding numerical value. The number one represents A, J, and S. The number Two represents B, K, and T. The number Three represents C, L, and U. The number Four represents D, M, and V. The number five represents E, N, and W. The number six represents F, O, and X. The number seven represents G, P, and Y. The number eight represents H, Q, and Z, The number nine represents R and I.
Once you record the numbers that correspond to your name, you need to add them together. Adding these numbers together until you get a single digit gives you your name number. The exception to this would be the numbers eleven and twenty-two, which are a very powerful numbers and have special properties about them (primarily because of the dichotomous relationship the individual numbers and their sum exhibit).
