Expression – Destiny Number


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.

  • I programmed the script to automatically determine whether the Y in your name (if you have one) should be a vowel or a consonant. However, if you'd like to force the Y to be used as a consonant, use the asterisk * symbol in its place; or the # symbol to use it as a vowel.
  • Enter your name and hit Submit.
How To Calculate – Expression/Destiny Number

Each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.
Expression Destiny Number Chart Numerology Calculator
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 updated 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
Expression Destiny Number Chart Calculation John Lennon

John Lennon's Expression Number = 2 + 33 + 11 = 46 = 10 = 1


Example Calculation 2: Oprah Gail Winfrey
Expression Destiny Number Chart Calculation 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)

Click on the numbers below to read a summary of both the positive and negative traits assigned to each number. Please note that the definitions below are specific to the actual numbers (1 to 9, 11, 22 and 33).

Would calculations be any different if a person has used their middle name as their first name their whole life?

Hi Laura, in Pythagorean numerology you are supposed to use your entire full birth name for the core numbers.

Hi, I have a question about the calculation of my Expression number. When I fill my full name (Susanne Marie Brokx) out in your calculator, it tells me the number is 11. But when I do the calculation myself, I come to a 3. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for helping out!

Susanne = 1 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 21 = 3
Marie = 4 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 5 = 28 = 10 = 1
Brokx = 2 + 9 + 6 + 2 + 6 = 25 = 7

3 + 1 + 7 = 11/2

Change it. You do want to to 33 unless you are a 33 degree freemason.

Hello, my question is: On calculation example #2 How did you reduce the 30 into a four? I’m trying to reduce my numbers but I can’t figure out how you did the reduction.

seven September 12, 2016 at 8:25 pm

i believe yo misread that 30 😉

31 = 3 + 1 = 4

Hello, I have a question, as most people do. And it is about the expression number when it comes to a ‘birth name’. At birth my name was Megan Elizabeth Brysiak, but my last name changed when my mother adopted me, but her husband is my biological father. So do I use the 33 with my technical birth name or do I use the 4 that is now given to me from when I got my name legally changed?

Unless the adoption happened very early in life, I would go with the name you were given when you entered this world.
