The usual assumption of individuals, who have not been subjected to the study of numerology, is that numerology calculations are very advanced and require a high intellect for mathematics. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, numerology calculations are very easy to perform; however, the unravelling of numerology calculations can become a bit more complicated. Like any specialized craft, numerology requires experience and practise in order to develop proficiency.

Numerology calculations are divided into two common categories: numerology birth date and numerological name. Each letter of the name has an associated number with a specific vibration, and these numbers, along with the numbers in the birth date, provide information about underlying talents, a person's character, and allow them to make educated life decisions.

We will start with two birth date numerology calculations Life Path Number & Day of Birth Number and use Linda Judith Johnson born on April 12, 1965 for our example throughout the article.

Life Path Number: The Life Path Number is the simplest of all numerology calculations; however, it is normally deemed the most important numerological number. It is an exterior influence number and can assist in uncovering deep-rooted abilities & skills, identify personality characteristics, grasp opportunities, and show your path in life.

The Life Path Number is calculated by adding the numbers in your birth date together until you reach a single digit. The only notable exceptions are numerology number 11 and numerological number 22, which are very forceful numbers called Master Numbers. In this example Linda's Life Path Number is calculated as follows:

  • April 12, 1965 = 0+4+1+2+1+9+6+5 = 28 2+8 =10 1+0=1
  • Linda's Life Path Number is 1

  • Day of Birth Number: This number provides your birth given characteristics. It can be regarded as your trademark as you journey through life. Although viewed as the least significant of the four core numerological numbers, it can often disclose a very unique ability that you may otherwise not know you possess. Again, a singular number, its numerology calculation is simply the sum of your birth day. In the example, Susan's Day of Birth Number is calculated as follows:
  • 1+2 =3 Linda's Day of Birth Number is 3
  • Destiny Number: frequently referred to as your Expression number, the Destiny Number can be characterized as your "Reason in Life". It provides a road map from the outset of your life to the end. It notifies you when to exercise prudence and when to recognize opportunities. It is a very partisan number and provides a sense of "You", from a intense personal level.

    The numerology calculation of the Destiny Number is based on assigning a specific number to each letter of your total birth name. The following chart demonstrates the numbers from 1 - 9 assigned to each letter of the alphabet.

  • 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
  • In the example, the numerology calculations of Susan's name would be as follows:
  • L I N D A J U D I T H J O H N S O N
  • 3+9+5+4+1=22 1+3+4+9+2+8=27 1+6+8+5+1+6+5=32
  • 2+2=4 2+7=9 3+2=5
  • 4+9+5 =18 1+8=9 Linda's Destiny Number is 9

  • Heart's Desire Number: Also referred to as Motivation, Ambition, and Soul Urge Number, shows what is wished-for in life, and what is wanted in life. The Heart's desire Number presents your deepest most inner motives. This number is somewhat silent; however, when you learn to hear and identify it, you can catapult your self to extreme levels of success.

    The numerology calculation is the same as the Destiny Number, however, it only uses the vowels A, E, I, O, U. Some numerologists incorporate the letter Y.

  • Vowels: I A U I O O 9 + 1 + 3 + 9 + 6 + 6 = 34 3 + 4 =7

  • Linda's Heart's Desire Number is 7

    There you have the numerology calculations for the 4 fundamental numerological numbers. Keep in mind that looking at an individual number can prove useful; however, the power of numerology comes with looking at an total numerology chart and seeing how the numbers correlate, and how they can be embodied into your life.

    My advice is just get going. Perform the numerology calculations on your own name and birth date. Do some exploration and discover what the numbers mean. Once you establish a basic awareness of numerology, develop it like any specialized skill and use it to change and heighten your life beyond anything you ever envisioned.
