Your Core Numbers

The five numbers that have the biggest impact on your life

There are five building blocks or "core numbers" that make up the Numerology of you: your Life Path number, your Expression number, your Personality number, your Heart's Desire number and your Birth Day number. Each one is based off of your personal birth name and/or birth date and has its own deep-rooted impact on the person you are today. Here we break down the meaning of these core numbers for a better understanding as you prepare to make your own Numerology calculations.

Your Life Path number

The Life Path number is the single most important number in your Numerology chart, because it acts as a blueprint outlining how your life will play out. Opportunities and challenges faced along the way are heavily influenced by the Life Path ... as is your general character and course of action as you embark on life's journey.

Your Life Path number is based off of the numbers in your full birth date. It encaptures your entire being and will never change, and for those reasons, it's very special.

Your Expression number

While your Life Path number plots your life's lessons and how you handle them, your Expression number is all about your natural strengths and weaknesses given to you at your time of birth. Often referred to as the Destiny number, as it aims for your goal in life, this number is the foundation on which your Life Path can flourish.

Your Expression number is based off of the numbers that correspond to the letters in your full name, and it reveals the talents and abilities instilled in you at birth.

Your Personality number

Your Personality number is the first impression people get of you. It represents the parts of yourself that you are most ready and willing to reveal, and helps you determine just how much you reveal, and to whom. This number acts as a buffer, screening out some people and situations you don't want to deal with while welcoming the things in life that relate to your inner nature.

Your Personality number is derived from only the consonants in your name.

Your Heart's Desire number

What are the reasons behind your actions? What do you really want in life and love? This is where your Heart's Desire comes in to play, and it signifies the reasons behind the choices you make in all aspects of your life, from your career to your relationships -- the burning fire within.

Your Heart's Desire number comes from just the vowels in your name -- those soft sounds shed light on the inner workings of your more subconscious desires.

Your Birth Day number

Your Birth Day number is just that -- the day on which you were born -- and it reveals a certain talent that will eventually find its place on your Life Path.

While it's the most insignificant of the core numbers, the Birth Day number puts a timestamp on the person you are today according to one single aspect that will ultimately impact your life in a big way. Just as you were destined to be born on this specific day, you have been given a certain special gift as a result.
