One of the numbers in your numerology chart is the Maturity Number. This indicates your ultimate destiny and point of evolution. It indicates the direction you’re heading toward as you gain age, wisdom, experience, and maturity. Unlike other calculations in numerology that are quite specific about timing, the Maturity number is said to be felt as you enter into your 40s and becomes a stronger and more directive influence as you get older.
Calculating Your Maturity Number
Here’s an example:
Life Path: 11
Expression or Destiny: 5
11 + 5 = 16 (not to complicate things, but you can also observe that 16 is a Karmic number)
Keep reducing until you reach a 1-digit number.
16 = 1 + 6 = 7
In this example, you would have a 7 Maturity number.
