How To Calculate Your Expression NumberYou can calculate expression number by adding sum of numeric value of all letters in birth name.

This is the second most important number in your chart. Your Expression Number is  sometimes referred to as your Destiny Number, because it represents who you are destined to be – in other words, it represents the lessons you came into this life to learn. The Expression Number is generally considered to represent your main focus in life and is very significant in the career you spend much of your life in. In a spiritual sense, your Expression Number contains all of the experiences and knowledge that you have gathered and internalized over the course of many lifetimes. This body of information is made up of everything that has happened to you, regardless of how unimportant it may seem, and represents the entirety of your personal and spiritual evolution.

Your Expression Number is created by converting all of the letters in your name – as it was given to you at birth – into numbers by using the following chart:

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

There is an important rule to remember when assigning numbers to letters, and this is when dealing with the letter ‘Y’. If the ‘Y’ is used as a consonant and is deliberately pronounced, it is considered to be a consonant. If the ‘Y’ is considered to be “silent” or is used as a vowel, it is classified as a vowel. The ‘Y’ in Yolande, for instance, would be classified as a consonant, but the ‘Y’ in Harry would be classified as a vowel.

As an example, let’s look at George Brian Peterson’s chart. In anticipation of creating the third Core Number, we’ll put the vowels above the name and the consonants below. As you will see in a moment, the third Core Number is created by adding the vowels alone, so it speeds up the next step by doing it this way. Using the conversion chart above, we would put a 7 under the G of his first name, a 5 over the E, a 6 over the O, a 9 under the R and a 5 over the E. We continue on with the rest of the name and wind up with the following:

5 6 5 9 1 5 7 6
G E O R G E B R I A N P E T E R S O N
7 9 7 2 9 5 5 2 9 1 5

The next step is to add up the numbers in the top row:

5 + 6 + 5 + 9 + 1 + 7 + 5 + 6 = 44 = 4 + 4 = 8

Adding the bottom row gives us:

7 + 9 + 7 + 2 + 9 + 5 + 5 + 2 + 9 + 1 + 5 = 61 = 6 + 1 = 7

To arrive at the Expression Number, add the totals of the top and bottom rows:
8 + 7 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6

Therefore, George’s Expression Number is Six. By referring back to the Basic Meanings And Interpreting expression number , we can see that George is likely to be a good father and husband, and will place a great deal of emphasis on his family and home life. He will be a valued member of the company he works for, and people who work with him will rely on him quite a bit, not only for the way in which he does his job, but also in the manner in which he makes the workplace a pleasant place to be.

The third most important number in your numerology chart is called your Heart’s Desire, and is arrived at by adding up all of the vowels in your name. You can see now why we arrange the vowels in the top row apart from the consonants. Your Heart’s Desire represents your inner motivation and intention, and as such tells us a lot about how you make the choices you make in life. Because it is an integral part of your inner being, the Heart’s Desire is often considered to be closely related to that part of you that passes from one lifetime to another. It’s interesting to note
that many numerologists refer to this number as the Soul’s Urge.

Since we’ve already calculated this number (5 + 6 + 5 + 9 + 1 + 7 + 5 + 6 = 44 = 4+ 4 = 8), we know what George’s third Core Number is. In George’s example, we can see how the Eight will help him achieve the material success that makes him such a good provider for his family. With their physical needs taken care of, George and his family will be able to focus better on the emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives that will bring them a well-balanced home life.
