How to Find Your Birth Number

Generally, the soul urge number is assigned to people who were born on specific days of the month.

Anyone who was born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd of any month. Many numerologists, however, calculate the soul urge number by analyzing the letters in your birth name.

This is done by assigning values to all of the vowels in the birth name determined from a Numerological letter chart and adding them together.

Either way, the soul urge number is a reflection of the circumstances surrounding your origins as you emerged from spirit into the world of form.
