Welcome to my numerology calculation page where I’m going to show you how to calculate your 5 Core numerology numbers, using Britney Spears & Charlton Heston as examples further down the page.
The calculations are the first step in using name numerology, the ancient system that helps you understand yourself, or another person, better.
Here are the 5 Numerology Calculations you will learn here:
- Your Day Force Number
- Your Life Path number
- Your Expression number
- Your Soul Urge number
- Your Karmic number
Your Numerology Day Force Number
Your day force number is your day-to-day number really. It shows you how others see you who don’t know you deeply.
For instance work colleagues & acquaintances.
It also tells you about your style and colors and it influences your natural talents and abilities.
Numerology calculation for your DAY FORCE NUMBER
You simply take the DAY on which you were born e.g. the 6th or the 23rd etc.
For double digits add the 2 numbers together to reduce them to a single number, for example;
If you were born on the 12th = 1+2 = 3
If you were born on the 15th = 1+5 = 6
If you were born on the 28th = 2+8 = 10 As this is still a double digit you need to then add the 1 and 0 together to get a single digit = 1.
It’s as simple as that.
This is your Day Force Number.

Your Numerology Life Path Number (also known as your Birth Force number)
Your Life Path Number shows you what you are really like, what career you are best suited to and what you ARE.
Here is the numerology calculation for finding your LIFE PATH NUMBER
- The first step for this numerology calculation is to take the number of the month you were born (e.g. October = the 10th month) and reduce it to a single number.
So for October take the 10 and reduce it: 1+0 = 1
For June which is the 6th month the 6 is already a single number.
December=12 which reduces to 3 ( 1+2=3).
The second step of the numerology calculation is to change the DAY of your birth to a single number.
The exception is if you were born on the 11th or 22nd in which case leave them as 11 and 22.
So, if you were born on the 23rd of the month 2+3 = 5.
If you were born on the 9th it’s already a single number so you don’t need to do anything more.
If you were born on the 16th 6+1 = 7. You get the idea!
The third step in calculating your life path number is to add the numbers of your YEAR of birth together and reduce them to a single number.
e.g. If you were born in 1954 add the 1+9+5+4 = 19 1+9 of 19 = 10 1+0 of 10 =1.
If you were born in 1940 add the 1+9+4+0 = 14 4+1 = 5.
The last step is to add all these single numbers together. So, take the number that your month of birth reduced to, add it to the single number your day of birth reduced to. And add the number that your year of birth reduced to.
Here’s an example:
Let’s say your date of birth is the 17th of September 1974.
The 17 reduces to an 8 (1+7).
September is the 9th month and 9 cannot be reduced any further.
The year 1974 reduces: 1+9+7+4 = 21 2+1 = 3.
So, the single numbers we are left with to add together are 8, 9 and 3. These add up to 20 which reduces down to 2. So, 2 is your life path number in this example.
Your Numerology Life Expression Number (also known as your Destiny number)
Your Life Expression Number tells you about your life’s purpose and what you should, ideally, DO.
How to calculate your LIFE EXPRESSION NUMBER.
For this numerology calculation, using the Pythagorean chart above and treating each name as a separate sum, give each letter in your name it’s corresponding number.
Then add all the numbers together for each name and reduce each name’s number to a single number. You then add each single number together as in this example:
JOHN CHARLES CARTER (This is the actor Charlton Heston’s full birth name).
So for the name John the associated numbers for each letter are 1, 6, 8, 5. Added together these make 20. This number reduces to 2.
The numbers for the name Charles are 3, 8, 1, 9, 3, 5, 1. Added together these make 30. This number reduces to 3.
His last name gives the numbers 3, 1, 9, 2, 5, 9. These total 11 when we add them. You may remember I have mentioned that you don’t reduce the numbers 11 or 22.
To get Charlton’s Life Expression number we now simply add these final numbers together then reduce them to a single number: 2+3+11 = 16 1+6 from 16 gives the number 7 which is his life expression number.
Here’s another numerology calculation example: BRITNEY JEAN SPEARS (The pop singer’s full name). Her first name Britney gives the numbers 2, 9, 9, 2, 5, 5, 7. Added together these make 39. 3+9 = 12 which reduces to the number 3.
Jean gives the numbers 1, 5, 1, 5. These add to give 12 which also reduces to give 3.
Spears gives the numbers 1, 7, 5, 1, 9, 1. These total 24 which reduces to 6.
So, we now simply add her 3 final single numbers together: 3+3+6 = 12 which reduces to a 3 which is her life expression number.
Your Numerology Soul Urge Number (also known as your Hearts Desire number)
Your Soul Urge Number tells you about your secret thoughts and wishes, your INNER nature and your desire to do or BE.
How to calculate YOUR SOUL URGE NUMBER.
Here is the numerology calculation chart for finding your soul urge number which is based on the vowels in your full birth name:
A = 1 E = 5 I = 9 O = 6 U = 3
So you need to simply add together the numerical values for the vowels in your name and then you just reduce them down to a single digit number.
Let’s take the example of Britney Jean Spears again:
The vowels she has are: I, E, E, A, E, A.
These give the numbers 9, 5, 5, 1, 5, 1.
These add together to give 26 which reduces to give 8 as her soul urge number.
Your Numerology Karmic Number (also known as your Personality Number)
Your Karmic number tells you about your outer self, how others see you.
It reveals habits and mannerisms and even the type of clothes you like to/should wear.
How to calculate YOUR KARMIC NUMBER.
For this numerology calculation you simply take the consonants from your full birth name to give your Karmic number.
In Charlton’s name – JOHN CHARLES CARTER the consonants are: J, H, N, C, H, R, L, S, C, R, T, R.
These give the numbers 1, 8, 5, 3, 8, 9, 3, 1, 3, 9, 2, 9.
These add up to give 61 which reduces to 7 which is his Karmic number.
Interpreting the Numerology Number Meanings
I hope you find these numerology calculation guides useful.
It’s so revealing when you look at someone’s 5 core numbers, whether it’s yourself, a loved one or someone in the public eye.
Once you have done the numerology calculation for the person you are interested in, you need to then find out what that number means.
You can get a feel for what each means using the brief meanings on my Number Meanings page, coming soon!
But you can’t beat reading page after page of professional in-depth meanings.
The best way to do this is either via a good numerology book:
or find out via a Numerologist, who will do all the work for you. I like this one (mentioned previously, he gives you a free personalized numerology report).
There’s simply way too much information to include here about all the different meanings of all the numbers for each core area, which is why I too refer to books at that stage!
It’s also useful to compare different meanings in different books as they vary although the essence of the meaning is the same.
