What is the Meaning of Soul Urge Number 2?
The soul urge number is one of the five core numbers that numerologists calculate when drawing up a person’s numerological chart.
Like the life path number, your soul urge number is calculated according to the specific circumstances surrounding your birth.
Birth is significant because it represents the point at which we left the realm of spirit and took on material form.
Everything in the universe originates in an energetic form before taking form in the material world.
Numerologists have found that the soul of each of us chooses the circumstances of our birth, the date and time, and even our name, to serve as a code that we can each use to decipher our life’s purpose.
Your soul urge number is a key to understanding the circumstances of your origin and your purpose in this life.
Calculating Your Soul Urge Number
Traditionally, the soul urge number has been attributed to people born on specific days of each month. In the case of soul urge number 2, anyone born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th and 29th were said to have a soul urge number of 2.
However many numerologists will consult a table of letters to calculate your soul urge number from the vowels in your full name.
When calculating your soul urge number from your name, you should remember to use your birth name and not your common name or nickname.
Your birth name is the name that your soul chose as you emerged from source energy into material form.
Whether you calculate your soul urge number from your name or your date of birth, it is still associated with your origins and can provide you with vital data you can use to decode your life’s purpose.
The Meaning of Number 2
The number 2 is generally regarded to be a drastic shift from the energy of the number 1, which is assertive, independent and original.
The number 2 has an energy that is more passive, emotional and submissive.
If the number 1 is the number of the leader, the artist or the hero asserting herself in the world, the number 2 represents the energy of the sidekick who is cooperative, agreeable, friendly and even subservient.
The Meaning of Soul Number 2
When your soul urge number is 2 it means that you have come into this life to learn certain karmic lessons that will serve you on your spiritual journey toward illumination.
This soul urge number indicates that you may need to learn about cooperation, humility and how to deal with powerful emotions.
Of course, that does not mean that you do not have specific gifts. Your sensitivity and intuition, when used properly, can serve as valuable tools to help you serve others.
If you are to ascend to the illuminated status of the Ascended Masters, it is more important to serve humanity than it is to assert self-interest.
Therefore, humility is not a sign of weakness, but of a more evolved expression of strength.
What Does Soul Urge Number 2 Say About You?
You are sensitive and emotional by nature.
Unlike a 1 energy that seems to be able to simply brush off all emotional hurts the way rain rolls off a duck, the nature of the 2 vibration complicates things greatly, making it unlikely you will forget emotional hurts any time soon.
You are a true peacekeeper.
Unlike an assertive 1 energy, your 2 energy is passive and avoids conflict whenever possible.
You naturally favor compromise, cooperation and humility to self assertive behaviors that lead to conflict.
Your love for others comes from a need to be loved by others.
As the perennial side-kick, you are always looking for a partner at work, at home, in the social sphere and in your romantic life.
Once you have found one, you are a caring partner who tends to think with your heart rather than your head.
You can be too sensitive sometimes.
Sensitivity can manifest in many forms. In a useful form like intuition we can use our sensitivity to anticipate the needs of others and act in their best interests.
However, sometimes sensitivity can manifest as moodiness, neediness and a clingy nature that our partners, friends and family may find disagreeable.
Understanding Your Soul’s Calling
The soul urge number 2 is associated with the second card of the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the High Priestess.
The High Priestess is a mysterious and highly mystical card, associated with artistic creation and occult powers.
In the symbolism of the Tarot, the High Priestess comes after the assertive and masculine Magician (Cobbler).
She represents the more passive and feminine side of our nature and is symbolic of the deeper duality of our being.
Like the High Priestess, many people with a soul urge number of 2 are introverted and passive, more in tune with their emotions and intuition than with their rational thought processes.
Your soul urge number is often used to determine who you may have been in a former life.
If you believe in reincarnation then you are likely to hold to the idea that we come back to this world of material form to learn the lessons we need to progress on our larger spiritual journey toward illumination.
When your soul urge number is 2 it may indicate that you held a high or powerful position in a previous life and now need to learn the lesson of humility and cooperation to progress to the next stage in your spiritual development.
