According to the principles of numerology, your soul number reveals your heart’s dearest desire and gives you a framework for understanding yourself at a deeper level.
Calculate your soul number and the soul numbers of loved ones to obtain greater insight into potential strengths and tendencies.
Determine Soul Number
Your soul number is determined by using your name and the following numerology chart. You will look up the corresponding number to every vowel in your full birth name, first middle last. You will then add up the numbers in each part of your name to arrive at your soul number. If you arrive at a double digit number, add the digits of the number together until you arrive at a single number.
Quick Tip for Y – Y is considered a vowel when it is the only vowel sound in the syllable.
