# How do I calculate my numbers?

Q: Hi, I saw a show on Television today and noticed the subject was on numerology. At the beginning of the show, they told everyone how to figure out their (Life Path/Destiny) number but I missed it. I know there is some math involved but I did not catch what it was. Could you please tell me how to figure out my number and other peoples numbers? – D. A.

A: You can calculate your name numbers for free using our online calculator here: Free Name Meaning

Here are some of the other calculations:

Life Path Destiny Calculations: Full Birth Date:

 Date: 5 / 2 / 1964 Add: 5+ 2+ 1+9+ 6+4 = 27 Add: 27 = 2 +7 = 9

Some numerologists add the birth date this way:

 Date: 5 / 2 / 1964 Add year 1+ 9+ 6+4= 20 Add month and day to year 20 +5 +2 = 27= 2+ 7 = 9

Still others add it up this way:

 Date: 5 / 2 / 1964 Add year 1+ 9+ 6+4= 20 = 2+ 0 = 2 Add month + 5 Add day + 2 Total = 9

The Pythagorean “Letter Grid”

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

Name Calculations: Birth Certificate Name:

 7 1 3 V = 11/2 1 6 1 0 1 2 1 5 9 1 5 5 7 5 A N G E L I A R E N E C Y P H E R S T = 5 5 7 3 9 5 3 7 8 9 1 1 5 1 4 2 8 6 5 1 C = 3

Fill in the number values from the “Letter Grid” above, putting the vowels above the name and the consonants below the name.

Beginning with the vowels at the top of the name, add the vowels for each name separately place the number in the row above. Then, if the number is a double digit (and not an 11, 22 or 33), further reduce by adding those two digits together to arrive at a single digit. Place that number in the very top row as shown above. Finally, add the three single digits representing the vowel totals for each name across to arrive at a total. If this is a double digit, (and not an 11, 22 or 33) add again to get a single digit. This number is the Soul Urge.

Do the same thing with the numbers below the name to find the Persona or “Outer Personality” number.

Finally, add the vowel and consonant totals for each name and reduce to a single digit (if not an 11, 22 or 33), then add the three name totals together and reduce to get the Expression or “Character” number. *A quick way to get the single digit Expression is just to add the Soul Urge to the Persona*

Or some add it all up this way:

Add the top row across ie:
1+5+9+1+5+5+7+5 = 38 Further reduce 38, 3+8 = 11/2
(If your double digit adds up to 11, 22 or 33 do not reduce it further as it is a “Master Number”.)
In the case above, the vowels equal 11/2. This is the “Soul Urge.”

Now add the bottom row across ie:
5+7+3+9+5+3+7+8+9+1 = 57 Further reduce 57, 5+7 = 12
Further reduce 12, 1+2 = 3
In the case above, the consonants equal 3. This number is the “Persona” or “Outer Personality.”

To find the “Expression” or “Character” you add the “Soul Urge” plus the “Persona”, in the case above you would get 14. Further reduce 1+4 = 5
