What is a Soul Urge Number?

In numerology, your soul urge number (also known as heart’s desire number) represents what your heart and soul crave more than anything in this world. It describes your dreams, hopes and wishes. It reveals your inner motivations and is the lens through which you make decisions. It’s also a number that shows how you operate in relationships.

If your soul urge number is in harmony with your life path number, decisions will be easy to make. But if there’s a mismatch between them, you may feel conflicted from time to time. Decisions may be hard to make and you’ll be pulled between your head and your heart.

If your life path number and your soul urge number are the same then you’ll find acting with true authenticity easy to do.

How to Calculate Your Soul Urge Number

1. Write down your full birth names (including all middle names) on a single line e.g. : EMILYJENNIFERSTONE

2. Identify the vowels in your birth name.

3. Assign each vowel it’s numerology number

A = 1

U = 3

E = 5

O = 6

I = 9

Y = 7 (sometimes…)

(‘y’ acts differently to other vowels. Sometimes it can be a consonant, so it only needs to be counted in the instances when it represents a vowel. For example, in the name ‘Emily,’ the letter ‘y’ is considered a vowel. You can find out more examples of the cases when ‘y’ is a vowel in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. You only need to count it if it appears to function as a vowel.)

4. Add all the vowels numbers up

5+9+7+5+9+5+6+5 = 51


5. Reduce the total to a single digit

Keep adding up the vowels in your name, until you get a single digit. In the example above 5+1 = 6. The numerology soul number for EMILYJENNIFERSTONE is 6. With the exceptions of master numbers 11, 22, and 33 your heart’s desire number will always reduce down a single digit. It’s also important to note that there is no soul number 10 (it would need to be reduced to a single digit 1+0 = 1).
