The Soul Urge (or Heart’s Desire) number is one of the five core number’s in a Numerology report which include; Life Path number, Destiny/Expression number, Soul Urge/Heart’s number, Personality number and Day number. This number shows you the inner you, your true motivation, your inner cravings and urges, likes and dislikes.
For the Soul Urge number we only consider the vowels A, E, I, O, U (and sometimes Y) in your given first, middle and last name.
DO use the letter “Y” as a VOWEL when:
- 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)
DO NOT use the letter “Y” as a VOWEL when:
- when Y follows another vowel, and it doesn’t provide for a separate vowel sound (Murray, Hayley)
- when the syllable 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)
By using the chart below, locate the vowels in your name, total the sum and reduce until a single digit is achieved. If you arrive at a Master Number, (11, 22 etc) respectively reduce to a single digit.
A = 1
E = 5
I = 9
O = 6
U = 3
Y = 7
J a n e M a r i e D o e
1 5 1 9 5 6 5
1+5+1+9+5+6+5 = 32
Soul’s Urge number is 5
Soul Urge 1
On a more negative side the number 1 can represent a bit of a bullish and overbearing character trait, and headstrong and stubborn personality. Opinionated, self-centered, domineering, overly critical, aggressive and intimidating are other, less positive traits associated with this number.
On a more positive side, the number 1 brings in a more competitive, driven, and highly motivated energy. This energy is more directed and controlled … it is the ambitious and pioneering force. The 1 also represents responsibility and loyalty, intelligence and wit, insightfulness, courage, innovation, confidence, independence, and unconventional individualism. Those with 1s in their chart are more likely to try new avenues, take risks, and venture out into unknown territories.
Soul Urge 2
On a more negative side the number 2 can be indecisive, and overly sensitive, making those with many 2s in their numerological chart more vulnerable to verbal abuse and negative criticism.
On a more positive side, the number 2 brings in a more sensitive, and intuitive energy. The 2 is a vibration of a peacemaker. Tactful, insightful and supportive, more understanding, flexible and willing to compromise. The 2 represents idealism, open mindedness, modesty, and gentleness. It is a warm, friendly, and unpretentious vibration, that often exudes sex appeal. Those with 2s in their charts have a greater respect for the world of emotions, feelings, and intuitions, and likely have an uncanny ability to recognize the more subtle things in life, and the often hidden motives of others.
Soul Urge 3
On a more negative side, the energy of the number 3 tends to be somewhat scattered, unfocused, and impulsive. The 3 can be undisciplined, escapist, irresponsible, cynical, and sarcastic, and those with 3s in their chart tend to be less grounded, more restless, and get bored more easily.
On a more positive side, the number 3 brings in an upbeat, expressive, creative, playful, inspiring, and uplifting energy. The 3 is a vibration of an optimist; fun loving, and perhaps even childlike in nature. Those with 3s in their chart tend to be less conventional, more easy going, with a great sense of humor, an upbeat nature, and a go with the flow attitude.
Soul Urge 4
The number 4 stands for everything that is sturdy, reliable, honest, patient, responsible, conventional, detail-oriented, logical and organized. It is a grounded vibration, one that induces practicality, discipline and focus. Those with 4s in their charts tend to prefer routine and predictability, and are likely more dependable and practical in nature.

Soul Urge 6

Those with a 6 in their numerological chart, are likely to lean towards lifestyles that include teaching, healing, counseling, or any other field that deals with service to others.
Some of the more negative attributes of the number 6 relate directly to the positives.

The number 8 is a powerful and focused energy, and those with this number in their numerological chart tend to be in the leader role, efficient, confident, goal oriented, practical, and generally have a good business sense, which goes hand in hand with a strong drive for financial success and security.
On the negative side, the number 8 represents a somewhat authoritarian and demanding nature, which although strong and enthusiastic, can come off as overly confident, egocentric, ruthless, selfish, greedy, and even cruel.
Soul Urge 9
