3 Steps To Calculate Your Soul Urge / Heart’s Desire Number

The soul urge number is one of the significant numbers in numerology. Just like the other numbers like angel numbers, twin flame numbers, destiny numbers, life path numbers, personality number, and birthday numbers, it tries to link your life with numbers that resonate with you. 

Numerology uses your soul urge number to make you fully aware of who you are and what your purpose on earth is. It tries to tell you why you do things the way you do them, and why things happen to you at certain times. 

To get a full understanding of your soul’s purpose, who you really are, and more, you need to know your soul urge number. 

What is your soul urge number and how do you calculate it? Read on to learn this and more.

What Is a Soul Urge Number?

A soul urge number is also known as the heart’s desire number. It represents who you are on the inside and shows you your true desires. 

Your soul urge number lets you know your likes and dislikes, and your needs. Your soul urge number unlocks the part of you that is hidden from the world.

Understanding your soul urge number lets you know your fears, inner cravings, urges, passion, and your deep motivation. It lets you know the force behind your soul coming into existence and what it is to experience. 

When you discover your soul urge number, you begin to understand things and life generally makes more sense to you. The depression and anxiety you may have been feeling will be lifted because you know exactly what your soul needs and you know how to satisfy that want.

What is My Soul Urge Number?

Your soul urge number is calculated using all the vowels in your full name. 

In some cases, ‘y’ is counted as a vowel too when it acts as a vowel, like in the names Jerry, Yvonne, and Sharyn.

Only vowels are used and not consonants because of the way vowels are pronounced. They are formed by the free flow of breath from you, and this flow of breath is air, spirit, and your soul’s essence.

How Do You Calculate the Soul Urge Number?

As mentioned, your soul urge number is calculated from the vowels of your full birth name. As a result, what you will be looking out for are the vowels a, e, I, o, u, and sometimes y. 

Each vowel is given a number with which to calculate your urge number. The values for each vowel are as follows:

  • A = 1
  • E = 5
  • I = 9
  • O = 6
  • U = 3
  • Y = 7

After you have figured out the vowels in your name including your middle name, you add up the numerical values of each vowel. 

The result of the addition is then reduced, except when you end up with master numbers which are 11 and 22. Master numbers are not reduced because they have their own meanings and significance in relation to soul urge numbers.

An example of how to calculate your soul urge number is seen bellow. Let’s use the name Elizabeth Ross Scott. The vowels and their numerical values are:

  • E = 5
  • I = 9
  • A = 1
  • E = 5
  • O = 6
  • O = 6

Adding them all up, you have 5 + 9 + 1 + 5 + 6 + 6 = 32

Number 32 has to be reduced to get a single value. This is done by adding up the individual numbers 3 and 2 to get 5. 

So for Elizabeth Ross Scott, her soul urge number is 5.

There are three groups into which numbers can be divided for compatibility. The numbers and groups are:

  • 3, 6 and 9
  • 1, 5 and 7
  • 2, 4 and 8

Members of a group are compatible with one another. Being in the same soul urge group doesn’t make you perfectly compatible though. 

Knowing your life path number also affects compatibility and although it is not as important as the soul urge number, it plays a role.

An indicator of life’s purpose is the strong feeling you sometimes have to do something positive.
