Your destiny is your life’s purpose and your destiny number in numerology tells you about your life path as well as both positive and negative traits of your personality.
What Does Your “Destiny Number” Reveal About Your Personality?
Researchers in the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality found that people who knew their astrological signs were more likely to feel a connection to a description of the personality of their sign than they were to a description of a different sign.
The same connection that we feel to our zodiac sign may also be true for beliefs about our destiny number in numerology, especially when we encounter a crisis in our lives. A study in the Journal of Social Psychology found that beliefs about chance or fate were positively related to action-taking. In other words, when people encountered a difficult time in their lives, they actively sought help from astrology or numerology to guide them on the right path.
How to determine your destiny number
- Write the numbers 1 through 9 across the top of the page
- Write one letter under each number starting with A under the number 1
- Repeat through letter I under the number 9 then begin the second row with the letter J under the number one through letter R at the number 9
- Finish the third row of letters under numbers with the letter Z ending at 8.
Your number and alphabet grid should look like this:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z
For the letters of your first, middle and last names separately, find the number assigned to each letter and add them together to create one single-digit number.
Here is one example:
For the name Nancy Ann Botwin, we would have the numbers as follows for Nancy
5 + 1 + 5 + 3 + 7 = 21
21 is a 2 and a 1
2 + 1 = 3
Continue this for each name, first, middle and last. Add all digits until you arrive at a single number between one and 9.
1 + 5 + 5 = 11
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 6 + 2 + 5 + 9 + 5 = 29
2 + 9 = 11
1 + 1 = 2
So we have 3 + 2 + 2 in the example of Nancy (3) Ann (2) Botwin (2), which when we add them, gives us the destiny number 7.
