Destiny Number Calculations

Amy Cunningham

Numerology works by assigning a numeric value to your birth name. Basically, the numerology system uses a letter chart to assign a number to each letter.

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

Start by writing your full birth name down and then assigning a number for each letter of your name.

For instance:
John Joseph Doe
JOHN = 1 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 20 = 2
(Note - when you have a 2 digit number, you add the two numbers together)
JOSEPH = 1 + 6 + 1 + 5 + 7 + 8 = 28 = 10 = 1
DOE = 4 + 6 + 5 = 15 = 6

Now calculate your destiny number.
2 + 1 + 6 = 9

You Destiny number is what provides you with the information about yourself.

If you get an 11 or 22 above, these are "master numbers" that have their own special meaning on top of their single number representation.
