Work Out Your Own Numerology

The symbolic meanings that surround the nine whole numbers are the centre of Numerological divination.  Numbers integrate into many other divinity methods, such as the Tarot.  Numbers can represent stages in the unfolding of any process, and can be keyed to planets, days, colours, qualities, character types and Tarot images.  Numbers are also keyed to letters of the alphabet, so words and names, as well as dates of birth, can be analyzed.

The First Name is our 'Foundation in Life'.

Karma Number
Your karmic number interpretation tells you what you need to do in order to correct your actions from previous lives. It can also help provide invaluable instruction as to what to do so that you can reap the rewards of the seeds that you sow in this life.

The karmic number, which is created from the consonants in your name as it appeared on your birth certificate, can also reveal your deepest hopes, desires, fears and anxieties. This number is an indicator of the subconscious mind and its’ inner workings particularly when it comes to compulsive or irrational urges and behaviour.

It is also the "you're damned if you do and damned if you don't number."  It describes your Achilles heel and where you may be bound to go wrong in life even though you are well-intentioned. It can also help you figure out why you may be achieving the opposite of what you want to achieve in life.

Another interesting aspect of the karmic number is that it can give you an idea of how others see you when it comes to first impressions. 

To divine your karmic number, you must first add together all of the letters of your full birth name.

The unique nature of the karmic nature tells you about your psychological vulnerabilities and strengths, the limitations that fate may have to offer you and the first impressions that you make on others.

Calculate your Karmic Number by eliminating all the vowels from your name. Assign the consonants the numerical equivalents as designated on the chart below and then reduce the number to a single digit.

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

This motivation number describes the behind the decisions you make and the way you act/tick.

The values of each Vowel added together.

The inner self number reveals what your secret dreams are made of.  Its how the inner person sees/pictures yourself, sometimes without realizing it.  It’s often the first impression other people get of you before they get to know you.

The values of each Consonant added together.

The expression number describes how you interacts with other people.  It tells how you best express yourself in life, and where your talents lie.

The total of the values of all the letters added together.

Karmic lessons are the things we are supposed to learn in this life.  They are weak links in your character, which need to be strengthened.  You do have free will to accept or reject these lessons, but the more you resist them, the more hard knocks and painful or difficult experiences will be put in your path.  As soon as the lesson is learned the strain will no longer be felt.

The hidden tendencies describe desires to which you have been exposed in the past, and because of their over-emphasis in your chart, they must be watched so that you do not go overboard with them.

The subconscious response number tells of how you instinctively and automatically react when faced with an emergency situation.



Your Day Number is the energy which influences who you are and all that you do in your life, on a daily basis.  It tells of what makes you respond and act as you do, and is an indication of what type of life you should lead in order to be successful in all that you undertake in this lifetime.

Your Day Number is the day of your birth.  Using the example above, 26th of September 1967, the Day Number is 26 = 2 + 6 = 8.  8 is the Day Number.

The destiny number is one of the most important numbers on your chart.  It is the ruling force that describes what you must do/learn, in order to operate harmoniously with your environment and how you can get the most out of your present life.  It shows the direction you must take, representing the only opportunities for success that will be made available to you.  To reject the destiny number is to court disaster and frustrations in life.

To analyse and interpret your ‘Destiny Number’ simply use the formula of reducing your date of birth to a single digit.  For example, the ‘Destiny Number’ for a person with the date of birth of the 26th of September 1967 (26/09/1967) is 4. 

This is worked out thus:
2 + 6 + 9 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 7  =  40.  4 + 0 = 4 Destiny Number

The Personal Year Number is the energy by which you will live your life from your birthday of this year, until your birthday of next year.  This is the vibration that will influence all that you do throughout that period.

The Personal Year energy is present from birthday to birthday. To work out your Personal Year Number, take the Day and Month Numbers and add them to the Year Number.  

For example, the Personal Year Number for someone with the date of birth  26/09/1967 would be Number 3.  Add the day and month numbers to the year number (eg 2011)
2 + 6 + 0 + 9 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 1 =  21   2 + 1 = 3  making 3 the Personal Year Number.
