Today, we are having a look at the third core number: the soul urge number which is also known as the heart’s desire number.

Read on what this number means for you, your soul, and your path in life.

What is the Soul Urge Number?

As we already said, this number is the third core number in numerology. It stands for a human’s inner motivation. It’s what you are passionate about and what makes you tick.

Your soul urge number describes what you really aspire to have in life. If you never calculated your heart’s desire number before, you might not be aware of your truest passions and aspirations.

So, this number can tell you a lot about yourself.

Your soul urge feed your soul and it can also express hidden talents that you will develop later in life. Same as with your expression number, your soul chose this number before you were born.

Keep in mind that this number is the third core number and we often feel it less than our life path number. Most people are aware of the tendencies of their life path number, for example. But the soul urge number is hidden deep inside us.

How to calculate your Soul Urge Number

To calculate your heart’s desire number, you need all the vowels in your name and need to assign them to the right number.

Here is the numerology chart that tells you which letter stands for which number:

A,J & S = 1

B,K & T = 2

C,L & U = 3

D,M & V = 4

E,N & W = 5

F,O & X = 6

G,P & Y = 7

H,Q & Z = 8

I & R = 9

Now, lets look at an example of how to calculate the soul urge number. Let’s assume a person is called Mary Ann Smith.

We have to look at each name separately first.

In the name Mary, we have the vowels A and Y. So we calculate:

1 + 7 = 8

In Ann, we only have A. So it’s 1.

In Smith, we have the I, which stands for 9.

Now we add up those numbers:

8 + 1 + 9 = 18  1 + 8 = 9

Mary Ann Smith’s soul urge number is 9.
