The Expression number, often referred to as the Destiny Number, is an important core number. Derived from your full name at birth, it symbolizes the opportunities you have at your disposal, reveals your inner goal, the person you aim to be, and the talents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with you when you entered your human body. Expression(aka Destiny) Number is one of the five core numbers that include your Life Path Number, Heart's Desire(aka Soul Urge), Day Number (the day you were born on), and Personality Number.
Each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.
To calculate your Expression/Destiny number, assign each letter of your name a number from the above chart. Do this separately for your First Name, Middle Name (if you have one), and Last Name (surname). For each of your names add the numbers up separately, reducing them down to a single digit value. When you have the numbers for each of your names, add these up and again reduce to a single digit to come up with your Expression/Destiny Number. If at any time in your calculations you encounter a master number (11,22, or 33) do not reduce it any further. Please note that if you have a suffix ... such as "Jr.", "Sr.", or a number such as "3rd" or "III", etc. ... do not include these in your calculations.
I have just added the calculator to your right, to help you figure out (or double check) not only your Expression/Destiny Number, but also your Heart's Desire/Soul Urge, and Personality numbers. Please let me know if you think it's throwing incorrect results for your name : )
Example Calculation 1: John Winston Lennon
John Lennon's Expression Number = 2 + 33 + 11 = 46 = 10 = 1
Example Calculation 2: Oprah Gail Winfrey
Oprah Winfreys's Expression Number = 4 + 2 + 1 = 7
You might find other charts showing different perspective numbers assigned to each letter. The methods on this website and in the readings I provide are based on Pythagorean numerology system which uses numbers 1 to 9. Chaldean numerology system follows a slightly different system using only numbers 1 to 8 (more to come on this topic at a later date)
