One of the littlest known (but oh-so powerful) numbers in your numerology chart is the Maturity Number.

The Maturity Number indicates your ultimate destiny and point of evolution.

The Life Path Number describes your journey through life, and your Expression / Destiny Number your gifts and talents. Your Soul Urge / Hearts Desire Number speaks to your inner, core urges. Yet the Maturity Number can reveal the most fundamental direction you’re heading toward, as you gain age, wisdom, experience, and yes, maturity.

Unlike other calculations in numerology that can be quite specific about timing (such as Personal Years and the Life Path Cycles) the Maturity number is said to be felt as you enter into your 40s. It becomes a stronger and more directive influence as you get older.

PinHow to Calculate Your Maturity Number

The Maturity Number is calculated by adding the Life Path number with the Destiny or Expression number.

Here’s an example:

  • Imagine someone with a Life Path 11 and a Destiny Number 5
  • 11 + 5 = 16
  • Keep reducing until you reach a 1-digit number.
  • 16 = 1 + 6 = 7

In this example, you would have a 7 Maturity number.
