Calculating Your Daily Number

Calculating Your Daily Number

Your Daily Number is one of the most common Numerological calculations you'll benefit from. So how does it work? It's a pretty simple equation that you can do for yourself, every day!

First, as with most other Numerology calculations, we reduce! Reducing numbers (usually from your birth date or, in Name Numerology, from the numbers calculated via your name) to single digits create what are called "Master Numbers." The Master Numbers that we need in this case are reduced from the current date and month and day of your birth.

For example, if you were born on October 12, and you wanted to know your Daily Number for March 17, 2010, you would calculate as follows:

Birth Month: October is the 10th month of the year. 10 reduces to 1 (1 + 0 = 1).
Birth Date: The date of birth is 12. 12 reduces to 3 (1 + 2 = 3).

Current Month: March is the 3rd month of the year. 3 is already a Master Number.
Current Date: The date is the 17th, which reduces to 8 (1 + 7 = 8).
Currrent Year: The current year is 2010, which reduces to 3 (2 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3).

Now add the resulting Master Numbers: 1 + 3 + 3 + 8 + 3 = 18 = 9.

The Number of the Day in this case is 9.

So, what does that 9 mean? That's where things get tricky. You can find out what 9s in general mean here, but that's just the basic idea ... similar to looking up the meaning of a Tarot Card or someone's Sun Sign, without knowing anything about the context of which other cards are around it, or what the person's Moon and Rising Sign are. For a full interpretation of what your Daily Number means for you, our Master Numerologist Hans Decoz looks at the bigger picture, including the Numerological chart for this year, and delivers advice on how you can best navigate the day.
