What Is the Destiny Number?

In Numerology, Your destiny number is there to help you reach your goals, great and small. Destiny numbers differ from life path numbers. Your life path number alludes to your greater overall purpose. Your destiny number is more focused on your traits, character and destiny. But your life path number and destiny number may go hand in hand. The way I see it is your life path number tells you what you came to do, your destiny number describes how you go about doing it.

Note: Destiny number may also be referred to as expression number.

Numerology using your name gets very interesting. Your destiny number is the sum of your full name turned into numbers. Unlike your life path number, which focuses on your birth date. No matter what your name is right now, the expression number will always be calculated based on the first full name that graced your birth certificate.

This simple calculation nailing down your single-digit expression number can help you nail down your key traits and where you excel in life. Not just one phase of life, there are no limits in that sense that your expression number impacts.

You get to choose the path you take, but it may not always be the right one. Not even if you think it will help you towards the greater purpose your life path number dictated.

Your single digit or Master Number expression number/destiny number helps determine what path is the right one that’ll make you happy and content.

How to Calculate Your Destiny Number

You can use the calculator below to find out your destiny number or you can do the calculation manually yourself by following the instructions.

If you’d rather take the more personal approach and figure it out yourself, here’s how.

Write down your full birth name. Each letter in your name corresponds to a number:

  • 1 — A, J, S.
  • 2  — B, T, K.
  • 3 — L, C, U.
  • 4 — M, D, V.
  • 5 — N, E, W.
  • 6 — O, F, X.
  • 7 — P, G, Y.
  • 8 — Q, H, Z.
  • 9 — R, I.

Let’s pretend you’re TAYLOR JAY JOHNSON.

T + A + Y + L + O + R

2 + 1 + 7 + 3 + 6 + 9 = 28

J + A + Y

1 + 1 + 7 = 9

J + O + H + N + S + O + N

1 + 6 + 8 + 5 + 1 + 6 + 5 = 32

Add each name together. In this case, we get 28, 9 and 32. For those two-digit numbers, add the two digits together. For 32 you get number 5. For 28 you get number 10, which becomes number 1 when you add the two digits again.

Next, add these single numbers: 1 + 9 + 5 = 15.

Add 1 + 5 and we get 6. Taylor Jay Johnson’s destiny number is 6.

What Are Master Numbers?

Your expression number/destiny number is usually a single digit, as was just demonstrated. But that’s not always true. There are a few master numbers that act differently. These are number 11, number 22 and number 33. If you get one of these as your final result, that’s your destiny number — not the sum of the two digits.

Your Destiny Number Meaning

What does your destiny number mean for you? Each number comes with a set of traits the person has and the roles the person fits in.

Read on and you’ll find out the meaning of your destiny number. It may be the thing that helps you get on the right life path.

Destiny Number 1

If your destiny number is 1, you were born to lead. You’re number one to match the destiny digit.

Ones have willpower, determination and strength. Everything needed to reach goals and gain success.

You’re well-suited to leadership positions. People telling you what to do isn’t your thing. You won’t tolerate it. You adore being the center of attention and having others praise you. They look up to you as a leader, and with the creative ways you’ve reached your goals, you don’t disappoint.

You don’t need to be overbearing or aggressive to hold this position. It’s your nature. Your experiences will have molded you to be the best for any top-job.

Destiny Number 2

Twos are naturally level-headed, calm and a born diplomat. You’re intrinsically persuasive and you use your powers for good. You’re the voice of calm in any hard situation and with difficult people.

Sadly, you may not always want the role of keeping the peace. However, you REMAIN the go-to person. Your skills in this area are renowned and respected.

You may take on the peace-keeping role because you’re naturally caring and loving. Unfortunately, those wonderful traits aren’t always good ones. You might tend to be a little too over-protective over loved ones, which makes them feel stuck. But it’s just your nature and you mean no harm.

You may seem patronizing because of this, which is an unfortunate truth of being the mediator. This and your tendency to be fearful, over-protective and cunning are areas you can work on. You’re probably a good listener and cooperative, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.

Overall you’re a caring person, sensitive, and you appreciate beauty and art. You’re calm and collected but may have a manipulative streak in your diplomatic tendencies that you’ll need to work on.

Destiny Number 3

As a number 3, you’re totally optimistic. You’re a joy to be around with your bright, cheerful enthusiasm. You’re an incredible companion to any platonic or romantic partner, which is good because you’ll need support in your life. Your need to succeed may let you down at times, so you’ll need that comfort.

However, you won’t disclose this need to anyone. Any time you’re disappointed, you hide behind being humorous and witty. Nobody can see your pain. All they see is a successful person who often excels in business, due to your need for success.

An issue that comes with your non-disclosure of disappointment is that you crave love. Yet, you find it difficult to show sadness or vulnerability. Plus, you need your independence.

But as a creative person, surely you’ll find a way you can open up to those you love. You excel at jobs in performance, so perhaps that’s where you’ll be able to share yourself more freely. It seems impractical, but being impractical is one of your negative traits. So it lines up well.

Destiny Number 5

Communication is key for a number 5. Good thing you’re great at it. And communicating with people, old and new, in different ways should help you have variety which you desperately crave. 

Your communication skills also come in handy when making new friends. You might need to do this a lot, as you outgrow most people. This may be caused by your restlessness, which drives you towards new experiences, travel and exploring new places and cultures.

You thrive on this newness, this change, because you have a low attention span and get bored easily. But your need for the new makes you enthusiastic, progressive and adventurous.

Be careful, though. You may use new ventures as escapism and tend to be critical.

You’d be a great boss thanks to your empathetic, considerate side. But you’re also fearful and insecure, so you need to trust your employees. Be careful they don’t fall prey to one of your angry outbursts.
