Learning numerology is similar to learning any other ability. The more you understand about the tools you’re dealing with, the better you’ll be at your craft.
The following are the core numbers that should be the foundation of any reading:
* Your BIRTHDATE determines your Life Path Number.
* The Expression Number (also known as the Personality Number, Potential Number, and Destiny Number) is based on ALL THE LETTERS OF YOUR FULL NAME AS IT WAS GIVEN TO YOU AT BIRTH.
* The Soul Urge Number (also known as the Soul, Soul Path, or Heart’s Desire number) is derived from a reduction of the VOWELS in your full given name.
* The Destiny Number (also known as the Inner Dreams, Inner You, or Karmic Number) is calculated by reducing the CONSONANTS in your full birth name.
First, consider the divination of the LIFE PATH NUMBER. The Life Path Number is determined by assigning a numeric value (don’t worry! We will supply for you next week) to your birthday (which must be stated in lengthy form, such as 05/25/1959 rather than 05/25/59.)
The Life Path Number is likely the most frequently requested numerology reading because it is the simplest and quickest to perform. It summarizes your life journey and what you can best hope to achieve.
However, simply glancing at your Life path number is not what I would call a complete reading. Even a reading based solely on the four fundamental elements is insufficient because it only describes the most likely projected route when you are born. It does not account for particular obstacles or hypothetical points in time when you can utilise your free will to influence your fate.
The total of your complete birthdate, including the year, is your Life Path Number. This number indicates who you were when you were born, as well as the degree of your physical, psychological, spiritual, and emotional potential and limitations.
As an example, consider the number Threes may be born into this world with huge talents and charisma, but according to conventional numerology, they may not be able to continue a one-on-one relationship for long because they are so preoccupied with the calling of a successful job.
A number three with a Soul Urge Number of two (about seeking genuine love) may meet a soul mate because they learn to transcend their personal worries and shortcomings. This is why, before evaluating a person’s numerology chart, it is critical to look at all four of the CORE computations.
The EXPRESSION NUMBER is the next basic number you will learn how to calculate in this course. This number is calculated by adding all of the numbers in your full birth name. This is not your married or pen name. It must be your birth name, including all of your middle names.
The Expression Number is a number that describes all of the qualities and personal potential that you will have over your lifetime. This is the number that describes the ideal version of yourself that can emerge if you make the proper life choices.
Some people are typically intimidated when they first compute their Expression number because the interpretation usually reflects ideals that appear to be achievable. Either that, or they are disappointed in themselves because the interpretation “rings a bell” and they realize they have not lived up to their full potential in this lifetime.
One of the benefits of doing the Expression Number calculation is that it might serve as a wake-up call, revealing how far you’ve wandered from your heart’s goals. In essence, it can help you remember what you always wanted to be as a small girl or boy. For example, a stockbroker with a Life Path number of materialistic eight may have an Expression number of nine, indicating that his or her true desire, despite accumulating money, may be to adopt children or be a philanthropist.
People sometimes feel empty or depressed in their life if the ideals of their Expression number are not fulfilled in their lives, regardless of how successful they are.
Although it may be tough to live up to your Expression number’s expectations, the reading is nearly always a call to action that asks you to live in the now and now and realize your initial aspirations.
The VOWELS in your whole birth name are used to compute your SOUL URGE NUMBER. This number’s unique interpretation can nearly be defined as an ethical gauge of who you truly are on this planet. It describes “what makes you blossom and what makes you wilt” and indicates what or who you cherish the most.
The Soul Urge Number is a very spiritual reading, and the benefit of its computation is that the ensuing interpretation frequently guides you in the direction of where you can find true fulfilment in life. This refers to “soul food” that can help you thrive rather than just survive from day to day.
The Soul Urge number is frequently revelatory since it describes your inner wants as opposed to the limits imposed by your birth as defined by the Life Path Number or your greater calling as described by the Expression Number.
A person with a spiritually oriented number 9 Life Path Number, for example, may feel lonely if they have devoted their life to chastity and the church if their Soul Urge Number is a number two, which is about finding a soul mate.
As we continue to describe the function of the four core numbers, you will notice that the readings can be as conflicting and complex as our personalities.
The fourth core number, the KARMIC NUMBER, is calculated by reducing the consonants in your name. This is the number that represents your deepest fears, desires, and fantasies. It also represents the unknown’s secrets. According to some numerologists, this number represents the characteristics of a person you were in a previous life. In any case, it describes the person you are on a subconscious level.
The Karmic number also has the peculiar property of describing how others may perceive you as a first impression. It is said to be a description of your astral imprint and how it affects other individuals and situations.
A nurturing Life Path number six, for example, may appear to others as a busybody or meddling character if his or her Karmic number is one, which is a number about vainglorious achievement. The Life Path number six may be completely unaware of others’ perceptions that he or she is making others appear “holier than thou” as a result of the distortion supplied by the Karmic Number Three.
If anything, the Karmic Number can explain why you sometimes feel “damned if you do and damned if you don’t,” and why you may have unusual dreams or feel pushed by strange or irrational emotions that appear “out of character” even to yourself.
