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 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.

In Pythagorean Numerology, each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.

Pythagorean Numerology Numbers Alphabet Letters Chart

To calculate your Expression/Destiny number, assign each letter of your name a number from the 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.

Below are couple of example calculations, but you can also use the Expression Number Calculator which will do the job for you 😉

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 Winfrey

Oprah Winfreys's Expression Number = 4 + 2 + 1 = 7

Expression/Destiny Number Calculator

  • Whether the Y in your name (if you have one) should be treated as a vowel or a consonant is automatically determined.

    To force the Y to be used as a consonant, use the asterisk * symbol in its place, and to force the Y to be used as a vowel use the pound # symbol in its place. However, for the Expression Number it does not make a difference in the overall result.

Three Core Name Numbers Derived From Our Full Birth Name ...

Expression/Destiny Number 1

The 1 Expression number indicates you are independent and individualistic. It represents the risk taker and a pioneering spirit. Self-reliant, confident, and perhaps sometimes overly opinionated, you are more likely to try the untested and new things. You like the freedom to choose your path and make your own decisions. Be wary of being overly competitive, and too self-centered and critical of others.

Expression/Destiny Number 2

The 2 Expression number indicates you are more intuitive and sensitive to the world and the people around you. You are more likely to crave balance and peaceful resolution to conflict, which makes you better equipped to work and deal with others. Be wary of being thrown off balance by negative people or situations around you.

Expression/Destiny Number 3

The 3 Expression number indicates you tend to be outgoing, with a more uplifting and optimistic energy than others. You are a creative spirit and likely more drawn to the Arts, or other similar outlets where your energy can be focused on bringing forth that which is in your imagination. Be wary of becoming too cynical, irresponsible, and undisciplined, as this will hinder progress in your creative ventures.

Expression/Destiny Number 4

The 4 Expression number is one of a builder. You are more grounded, methodical, and practical. Because you are likely more drawn to order and stability, you tend to be more reliable and responsible, and as such, are often seen as the bedrock of your family or business. Be wary of getting stuck on overly small details, and being too stubborn or rigid.

Expression/Destiny Number 5

The 5 Expression number indicates your love of freedom, excitement and new experiences. You are more of a free spirit, eager to explore and try new things. You tend to be very adaptable, hating the "routine" and not follow the social norms. Be wary of changing your mind too often, of getting bored too quickly, and leaving whatever the job or project at hand unfinished.

Expression/Destiny Number 6

The 6 Expression number indicates you are loving and honest, and as such you often play the role of healer or counselor. You have a tendency to put the need of others before yourself, and often feel the need to sacrifice your time and yourself to take care of others. Be wary of being too overprotective, meddling into other peoples' affairs, and not giving those you care about their own personal space.

Expression/Destiny Number 7

The 7 Expression number indicates you are inquisitive, intelligent, and have a yearning to attain truth, knowledge, and wisdom in all aspects of what is the very essence of existence. You are likely to be more introverted and require your own space and alone time to pursue your own projects. Be wary of becoming too secretive, cynical, and cutting yourself off from those around you.

Expression/Destiny Number 8

The 8 Expression number indicates you are ambitious, disciplined, and hard working. These qualities, along with being a good and efficient planner, and a tendency to see things the way they truly are, often result in great success in whatever field you choose to work in. Be wary of being too stubborn and intolerant of others, and try to keep the right balance in all your pursuits.

Expression/Destiny Number 9

The 9 Expression number indicates you tend to be drawn to causes and endeavours with a purpose to make the world a better place. Idealistic, a humanitarian, and a visionary, you can inspire others to help you achieve the greater good. Be wary of craving validation for your work, and being taken advantage of by those who do not see the world as you do.

Expression/Destiny Number 11

The 11 Expression number is a higher vibration of the number 2, and as such indicates you are highly intuitive and sensitive to the world and the people around you ... sometimes even to the point of seeming psychic. You tend to be idealistic and crave balance and peaceful resolution to conflict. Be wary of being too idealistic, impractical, and sharing your feelings openly with others.

Expression/Destiny Number 22

The 22 Expression number is a higher vibration of the number 4, and as such is often referred to as a master builder. You are grounded, methodical, practical and with persistence, determination, and will power you can turn dreams into reality and create, build and accomplish things that will last for lifetimes. Be wary of being inhibited by doubt, and getting stuck on overly small details.

Expression/Destiny Number 33

      Hi Victoria, below is a breakdown of your full birth name, assuming maria Patricia is your middle name ... although it doesn't effect the end result where we place it either way:

      first name (Victoria)
      = V + I + C + T + O + R + I + A = 4 + 9 + 3 + 2 + 6 + 9 + 9 + 1 = 43 = 7

      middle name (Maria Patricia)
      = M + A + R + I + A + P + A + T + R + I + C + I + A = 4 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 9 + 3 + 9 + 1 = 11 (this is not reduced as it is a master number)

      last name (Mangion)
      = M + A + N + G + I + O + N = 4 + 1 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 6 + 5 = 37 = 1

      Your Expression/Destiny Number = 7 + 11 + 1 = 19/1

    Hi and thank you. I calculated my destiny number and it was not the same as yours.

      Hi Hallie, I am thinking you might have to double check the way you did it ... unless I am wrong here?

      H + A + R + R + I + E + T = 8 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 5 + 2 = 43 = 7

      R + U + T + H = 9 + 3 + 2 + 8 = 22 = 22

      H + E + A + C + O + C + K = 8 + 5 + 1 + 3 + 6 + 3 + 2 = 28 = 1

      Your Expression/Destiny Number = 7 + 22 + 1 = 30/3

        Quick questions.
        ...why did you start the Numerology Number Definition of 3 with the negatives?

        ..my soul urge # adds up to a 22 .. why does this calculator reduce 22 to a 4? I thought master numbers stay master numbers..

        my biggest question ..a bit sad to say as an adult..my parents got divorced when i was young..during this period of chaos, they changed my name 3 times on my birth certificate..so I'm getting 3 different outcomes...if a name is your destiny..do i have 3?

        Thank you so much for your great work!

          Hi Heyoka,

          1) No reason ... numbers 1, 2 and 3 all start with their negative attributes first : )
          2) calculator does not reduce 22. If i have your full name I could give you a proper breakdown.
          3) That's a tough one. I'd go with the last name you got, which should be the name you are currently using ... unless you associate yourself better with your other names. Really it is up to you to decide which names resonates better overall with you.

          cheers : )

    44 is not listed on this site so any thoughts on this.

      Hi Justin, You are probably wondering if 44 should be treated much like a master number 11, 22 or 33. It is not normally considered as such and so we would just reduce it like any other number ... 44 = 8
