The Numerological Destiny Number of 3

The Destiny Number in a numerology chart is calculated using a person’s full birth name. This is the full name that appears on their birth certificate- unless they were adopted shortly after birth and their name was changed. In that case, the new name can be used. Write out the full name with space below the letters to write the number that corresponds to each. A, J and S are represented by the number 1. B, K and T are represented by the number 2. C, L and U are the number 3. D, M, and V are the number 4. E, N and W are 5. F, O and X are 6. G, P and Y are 7. H, Q and Z are 8. I and R are 9.

In order to calculate the Destiny Number, add the numbers together for each part of the name, reduce the total if it is not between 1 and 9 (or 11 or 22, the master numbers). Then add the reduced results from each part of the name together and reduce again if necessary. For the name Jane Doe Smith, you would start with Jane- which would be 1 + 1 + 5 + 5 or 12, which reduces to 3. Doe would be 4 + 6 + 5 or 15, which reduces to 6. Smith would be 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 or 24, which reduces to 6. Add them together and 3 + 6 + 6 or 15, which reduces to 6. Jane Doe Smith’s Destiny Number would be 6.

For those who have a Destiny Number of 3, their life will be one of creation and inspiration. Their optimistic attitude and good cheer will remain an aura around them that will inspire others to listen and follow. They know how to experience joy and are happy to spread the word on how to do it to others. How they bring joy to others can be through small tasks or by becoming an entertainer. Singing, acting, teaching, speaking and writing are common professions under this number. They are also natural salespeople and do well in marketing or sales. It is likely that they will get along well with small children due to having a similarly innocent and enthusiastic spirit.

As they age, their enthusiasm and optimism only seems to grow. People are drawn to them because they are social, loving, charming and great with conversation. It is essential that they develop during their life the communication skills that will help them inspire. They will also focus time on perfecting the art of being a good friend. Social networking will often lead them to greater business success. Negative aspects of this number can include focusing on the superficial, scattered energy or a problem taking things too seriously. It can be hard for them to not focus on unimportant things- like whether or not people like them. Despite this, those with a Destiny Number of 3 are not lacking in self consciousness. It wouldn’t be joyful to be moping all the time.

What Does Personality Number Represent?

Numerology is similar to astrology in some ways in that it helps reveal internal information about ourselves but uniquely different in that numerology is strictly utilizes the numbers within our life.


Numerology is a numbers game as we all have many numbers associated with us. When determining your personal numerology numbers you usually only need you exact date of birth and your legal full name as it appears on your birth certificate. From these two pieces of information you can calculate you common numerology numbers.


One of the more interesting personal numerology numbers is the personality number. This number is derived from your full birth name. The personality number is a reflection of how others see you. This may differ from who you really are as some people constantly put up a front hiding their true personality. The personality number gives a person some indication whether the rest of the world sees them as they really are.


When calculating your personality number you take your full name and pull out the consonants only and assign a numerical number to each one of the consonants. Just to be sure here, a consonant is a letter that is NOT a vowel. Then you add all the numbers together. If you have a double digit number, which are common then you reduce that double digit number by adding the two digits together. If the double digit number is a master number of 11 or 22 then you need NOT to reduce.


Let’s do one for fun:


Paris Whitney Hilton


We pull out all the consonants which are P R S W H T N Y H L T N and throw away the vowels which are A I I E I O. This is a great example because the middle name of Whitney has the letter Y. The letter Y can at times be considered a vowel it all depends on how it is used in the word. In this case the letter Y is NOT a vowel as it is an extension to the middle name of Whitney. If you remove the Y you now have Whitne which is still pronounced the same. If the letter Y is used as a substitute of a vowel as in the name of Lynn then it is considered a vowel. If the letter Y changes the pronunciation of the name it is then considered a vowel as in Mary or Betty. When removing the letter Y from these names you have a completely different name and is pronounced different as Mar and Bett.


Now, let’s add up the consonants by assigning number values. We use this Numerology number chart.


A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9

J=1, K=2, L=3, M=4, N=5, O=6, P=7, Q=8, R=9

S=1, T=2, U=3, V=4, W=5, X=6, Y=7, Z=8



7  9 1  5  8  2  5  7 8  3  2 5 add these numbers together to get 62. Reduce 62 as 6+2 = 8.


The personality number of Paris Whitney Hilton is 8. The next step is cross reference what the personality number of 8 means. You will be amazed just how accurate the personality number of the celebrity Paris Hilton is.


The Soul Urge Numbers in Numerology

The Soul Urge number in numerology is calculated by using only the vowels of the person’s full birth name. Write out the person’s full birth name (whatever is on their birth certificate) and leave a space below each vowel for its corresponding number. The letter A is 1, U is 3, E is 5, O is 6 and I is 9. Y is included if it serves as a vowel in the name and is assigned the number 7. W can also be considered a vowel if there is another vowel before it that blends with the “w” to make one sound (like in the name Shaw). In that case the W is assigned the number 5. Add together all of the vowels and reduce accordingly so that the result is between 1 and 9 (the master numbers of 11 and 22 can be reduced here). This will be the Soul Urge number- which is a glimpse into what the heart most desires on the life path.

A Soul Urge number of 1 will allow a person to feel content when they are excelling in competition. There is a need to win in order to feel appreciated and accepted. It is a combination of needing to prove something to their own mind and seeking the approval of others. A number of 2 will make a person have a deep need and longing for harmony and love in their life. In order to achieve that, pain, conflict and stress have to be avoided. With diplomacy and mediation, they will feel truly fulfilled.

A Soul Urge number of 3 will allow a person to gain their sense of calm through creative acts. Their confidence grows in expressing their writing or verbal abilities- especially when they are used to interact with other people. A number of 4 will need financial security to feel safe and secure in their environment. Debt and economic uncertainty wear at their nerves. Being recognized professionally for their abilities and knowledge will be icing on the cake.

A Soul Urge number of 5 make for a person that needs freedom in order to explore the world. A lack of restraints will allow for happiness and fulfillment for these people. A number 6 will find their happiness in others- more specifically, in the recognition that others have of their ability to provide care. They will be dedicated to making the lives of those other people better.

A Soul Urge number of 7 make for a person who needs to do some deep spiritual digging to see what is beneath all of the layers of the world. They will often retreat into introspection in order to find the answers and truths they are seeking. A number 8 wants monetary success, power and authority. These things all translate into security and fulfillment. A number 9 is all about the greater good. Making a difference and benefiting humanity will make them happier than serving their own needs. They will live life fully and selflessly.

How To Interpret Your Numerology Soul Urge Number

In Pythagorean numerology, the soul urge number is part of the 5 core numerology numbers. Of course, the are also many other important numbers like the bridge numbers, the karmic lesson numbers and the various numerology cycle numbers, but these 5 core numbers are the ones that most clearly describe our most distinct personally traits, strengths and weaknesses and these are also the numbers that most vitally influence our life path and destiny.

Now, let’s have a closer look at the soul urge number. As its name already indicates, this number describes your deepest urges, your most innermost yearnings and greatest desires. In other words, this number indicates what you really want in your life. This also means, that in order to find happiness and true fulfillment, you should allow your most important career decisions, your choices of life style, your relationships… to be guided by this number.

The soul urge number allows you to realize who you really are and what exactly you want from life and it will help you to make the right kind of choices in your life. This in turn will allow you to fully express your true, innermost nature and to experience a deep sense of fulfillment and happiness in your life.

How do you calculate your soul urge number?

This number is calculated from the vowels (the letters A, E, I, O, U) that appear in your name. In numerology, each letter corresponds with a number. The letter A corresponds with 1, E = 5, I = 9, O = 6 and U = 3.

Simply write down your full name as stated on your birth certificate and put the corresponding number under each vowel. Then you add the numerical value of the vowels in your first name and reduce the result to a single digit number. The master numbers 11 and 22 are not reduced.

Now you do the same with your last name and with your middle name(s) (if you have any). And finally, you add the numbers of your first-, last- and middle names and reduce the result to a single digit number, except if it is one of the master numbers 11 or 22, which are not reduced. And this is your soul urge number.

As you can see, it is relatively easy to calculate this number. You can also calculate the soul urge number for some of your friends, family members or colleagues and you will see that those people with the same soul urge number will have very similar dreams, desires and life expectations.

An Introduction to Basic Numerology

Among the occult arts, numerology is probably the easiest to use and understand. A birth date and full name are all that is needed to see the powers and secrets that all of the numbers hold. There are only eleven numbers used in a numerology chart: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 and 22. Any larger numbers that may occur in a birth date are reduced. For example, if your birthday was on the 23 it would be reduced to 2 + 3 or 5. Do not reduce the numbers 11 and 22 as they are considered master numbers. Each number is a representation of a unique characteristic or expression.

The first calculation to make for a numerological chart is the birth date. The date needs to be written out in the mm/dd/yyyy format. For example if you were born on January 23rd of 1980 it would be 01/23/1980. If you add the numbers of the birth date together you will have the Lifepath Number. In the example given, it would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 or 24- which then reduces to 2 + 4 or 6. The Lifepath Number is a representation of who you were when you were born and how those ingrained traits will take you through life. Remember not to reduce the numbers 11 or 22 as they are the master numbers and a valid result to have.

The full birth name (whatever is on your birth certificate, including any middle names) is also an important calculation for a numerological chart. There is a number assigned to different letters in the alphabet. The letters A, J, and S are represented by 1. B, K, and T are the number 2. C, L, and U are the number 3. D, M, and V are the number 4. E, N, and W are the number 5. F, O, and X are the number 6. G, P, and Y are the number 7. H, Q, and Z are the number 8. I and R are the number 9. Adding together the number representations of your name will result in the Destiny Number. It plots out a person’s destiny or all of the things they need to accomplish before they die. It is like a cosmic to do list (but a little less specific).

Take the name John Doe Smith as an example. It is easier add up each piece of the name separately and then add the results together. The first name would be 1 + 6 + 8 + 5 or 20, which reduces to 2. The middle name would be 4 + 6 + 5 or 15, which reduces to 6. The last name would be 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 or 24, which reduces to 6. Add together those reductions and you have 2 + 6 + 6 or 14, which reduces to 5. John Doe Smith’s Destiny Number would be 5. Remember not to reduce the numbers 11 or 22 as they are the master numbers and a valid result to have.

The Inner Dreams Numbers in Numerology

The Inner Dream numbers of a numerology chart are calculated using only the consonants of a person’s full birth name. Write out the name (whatever appears on their birth certificate) with space below the consonants for a corresponding number. J and S are represented by the number 1. B, K and T are 2. C and L are 3. D, M and V are the number 4. N is the number 5. F and X are 6. G and P are 7. H, Q and z are 8. R is the number 9. If Y is not being used as a vowel it is represented by 7. If W does not follow another vowel and belong to the same sound (like in Shaw), it gets the number 5. Add together all of the numbers for the consonants in the name and reduce to a single digit. The master numbers of 11 and 22 should not be reduced here. The result is the Inner Dream number, which shows what a person’s inner fantasies and desires are.

An Inner Dream number of 1 means the person wants to be a leader that is known for courageous, daring and inventive ideas. They want to be the first one up to the summit. Others can see them as being arrogant and cocky. A number of 2 desires close, meaningful relationships built on cooperation. They want to act as the mediator to their family and friends. Others see them as a soft, easygoing individual that doesn’t like to make waves.

An Inner Dream number of 3 means the person wants to express themselves through the arts. It is a way they can express their feelings. They wish they could be happier and desire popularity and appreciation from others. A number 4 dreams of stability and organization. They are dependable and disciplined and want to be recognized as such.

An Inner Dream number of 5 create dreams of freedom from responsibility. These people desire world travels, adventure and accomplishment. A number of 6 makes the desires turn towards the home and the creation and nurturing of a family. They want a loving partner and children and all that comes with domesticity.

An Inner Dream number of 7 color the dreams of an introvert who only wants to study and read alone. They aspire to being a teacher of some sort, constantly surrounded by knowledge. A number of 8 create desires of power, control and authority in the business world. They want to be recognized for their abilities and strengths. A number 9 dreams of saving the world and feeding the poor. They hope that others will need them for their advice and support.

The master number of 11 in the Inner Dream numbers creates dreams of idealistic illumination. They believe that there is a secret level to life that has gone unseen but feel that they are capable of informing the masses about what this secret is. The master number of 22 creates dreams of organization, building and other endeavors of creation. They think of far fetched schemes and the rewards that could come with them.
