Numerology – Soul Urge Number facts

The Soul Urge Number is derived from calculating the vowels in the First and Surname of your given name (which is the name on your birth certificate). Some numerologists however include the letter Y within this calculation, it’ll leave it up to you as to whether you want to do this.

Numerology - How to calculate your Soul Urge Number

Using your given name, (which is your name at birth) you can now calculate the Soul Urge Number using the table below, which gives the values of the vowels.

Soul Urge Number - Table
Soul Urge Number - Table

For example:

Name: Maria Smith

Calculate the names separately, or it gets confusing:

First name: Maria is calculated as follows: 1(A)+9(I)+1(A)=11

If you have a double-digit number here, then add them together: 11 will be calculated  as 1+1=2

Surname: Smith is calculated as follows: 9(I)

So now you have both names numerical values. Now simply add them together: 2+9=11

So again, this is double digit, therefore add the two digits together: 1+1=2

Soul Urge Number:  Maria Smith soul urge number is 2

NOTE: Middle names – If you have middle names on your birth certificate then calculate these as well, and add them to the final sum.
