Heart’s Desire – Soul Urge Number


This is the inner you. It shows your true motivation, your inner cravings and urges, likes and dislikes. It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions, and dramatically influences the choices you make in life. Heart's Desire (aka Soul Urge) number is one of the five core numbers that include your Life Path Number, Expression(aka Destiny) Number, Day Number (the day you were born on), and Personality Number.

The Heart's Desire/Soul Urge number is derived from the vowels (A, E, I, O, U ... and sometimes Y) of your full name at birth.



  • I programmed the script to automatically determine whether the Y in your name (if you have one) should be a vowel or a consonant. However, if you'd like to force the Y to be used as a consonant, use the asterisk * symbol in its place; or the # symbol to use it as a vowel.
  • Enter your name and hit Submit.
How To Calculate – Heart's Desire/Soul Urge Number

Each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.
Expression Destiny Number Chart Numerology Calculator
I have just updated the calculator to your right, to help you figure out (or double check) not only your Heart's Desire/Soul Urge number, but also your Expression/Destiny, and Personality numbers. Please let me know if you think it's throwing incorrect results for your name : )

In the case of your Heart's Desire/Soul Urge Number, we are only interested in the vowels of your full birth name.

What about the letter Y? The letter Y is a bit tricky to use. Sometimes it is considered a vowel and at other times a consonant, depending on how it is used and how it sounds within the name.

When to use the letter "Y" as a VOWEL
  • when Y serves as a vowel and sounds like a vowel , or when Y is the only vowel in the syllable (Mary, Carolyn, Betty)
  • when Y precedes another vowel in a syllable and provides the vowel sound (Bryan, Wyatt)

When to use letter "Y" as a CONSONANT
  • when Y follows another vowel, and it doesn't provide for a separate vowel sound (Murray, Hayley)
  • when the syllable already has another vowel (except when Y precedes another vowel in a syllable and provides the vowel sound)
  • when the Y is used in place of a J sound ( Yamaha, Toyota, Yoda)

To calculate your Heart's Desire/Soul Urge number, assign each vowel of your name a number from the above chart. Do this separately for your First Name, Middle Name (if you have one), and Last Name (Surname). For each of your names add the numbers up separately, reducing them down to a single digit value. When you have the numbers for each of your names, add these up and again reduce to a single digit to come up with your Heart's Desire/Soul Urge Number. If at any time in your calculations you encounter a master number (11,22, or 33) do not reduce it any further.



Example Calculation 1: John Winston Lennon
Heart's Desire Soul Urge Number Chart Calculation John Lennon

John Lennon's Heart's Desire Number = 6 + 6 + 11 = 23 = 5


Example Calculation 2: Oprah Gail Winfrey
Heart's Desire Soul Urge Number Chart Calculation Oprah Gail Winfrey
Oprah Winfreys's Heart's Desire Number = 7 + 1 + 5 = 13 = 4

Note that I have not used the "Y" in Winfrey as a vowel. It is considered a consonant in this case.



You might find other charts showing different perspective numbers assigned to each letter. The methods on this website and in the readings I provide are based on Pythagorean numerology system which uses numbers 1 to 9. Chaldean numerology system follows a slightly different system using only numbers 1 to 8 (more to come on this topic at a later date)

Click on the numbers below to read a summary of both the positive and negative traits assigned to each number. Please note that the definitions below are specific to the actual numbers (1 to 9, 11, 22 and 33).

The calculator on here says that my soul number is 9, but cafeastrology.com has me as 22/4 for both soul urge and personality numbers. Sevenreflections.com has me as 11/2 for soul and 33/6 for personality number. However, I have the same 8 number for expression number on all sites. Can you help me figure out which is correct?

seven March 11, 2017 at 7:08 pm

Hi Ivory, it has to do with the ‘y’ in Joyce. If you count it as a vowel it’ll give you a 9, but if you count it as a consonant you will get the 11/2 and 33/6.

cheers : )

My number doesn’t make any sense. It shows my Soul Urge Number as 22, but when I did my own calculations I got 8. My name is Evelyn Grace Hasty, can you help me?

Reply

seven January 29, 2017 at 9:04 pm

Evelyn = 5 + 5 + 7 = 17 = 8
Grace = 1 + 5 = 6
Hasty = 1 + 7 = 8

Heart’s Desire = 8 + 6 + 8 = 22/4

heart desire numbers do not tally with your i have 7 your calculator says 5 ?

Reply

Hi Sandra, is this the name you used? The calculator is never wrong 🙂 … and comes up with 8 as you heart’s desire number.

ALSO …
sandra = a + a = 1 + 1 = 2
rankine = a + i + e = 1 + 9 + 5 = 15 = 6

HD = 2 + 6 = 8

I think you forgot the “y” in your first name …. it is considered a vowel here.

yai = 7 + 1 + 9 = 17 = 8
ueau = 3 + 5 + 1 + 3 = 12 = 3

8 + 3 = 11

Heart’s desire = 8 + 6 + 7 = 21 = 3

Could you please check my soul urge number..

Your calculator says 9

But I’ve calculated 22/4

My name is Maria Kathlyn Vy Tan (VY pronounced vee)

Reply

seven September 30, 2016 at 3:20 pm

Maria = a + i + a = 11
Kathlyn = a + y = 8
Vy Tan = y + a = 8

Heart’s desire = 11 + 8 + 8 = 27 = 9

Soul Urge calc for:
Clayton Kelly Mcbeth Hewitt – 1st Y consonant, 2nd Y Vowel
Total of vowels = 38 -> 11
Total of vowels by name = 20 -> 2
Your online calculator shows 11 for the Soul Urge but your explanation of how to calculate results in a 2.

Which is correct?

Reply

seven July 27, 2016 at 5:26 pm

Hi John, the calculator is based on the same method as the explanation so they are the same …
first name – Clayton = 7
middle name – Kelly = 3
last name – Mcbeth Hewitt = 1
Total = 7 + 3 + 1 = 11 … usually written as 11/2

Sya August 25, 2016 at 2:51 am

im confused whats the “total vowels by name” number??

Reply

seven August 25, 2016 at 7:28 pm

Using your name as example, the vowels in your name would be y + a = 7 + 1 = 8

Reply

Elaina July 23, 2016 at 10:15 pm

So I’m doing a reading for my friend, and her vowels came up as 11-7-11, thus 29, thus 11. (e-e-a, y, o-e.) How the frickle frackle am I supposed to handle THREE occurances of such a power number of love and light when I literally JUST read up on their significance when the pairs occur in threes?! The Universe is giving me a sign… Why not them?
