Are You Compatible With Your Partner?

Do you know what your soul urge number is? If not, you’ll know it once you have a numerology reading, and it tells you what would be your heart’s inner need and desires throughout your life. It is quietly known to reveal all. For some, it’s a way to express themselves and seek compatibility with things or people.

So, let’s start with how it works and in what way to calculate it and discover the person you’ll be with for a lifetime using your soul urge number.

Meaning Behind Your Soul Urge Number

Once you have your soul urge number, you’ll identify what things motivate you and inspire you to make changes — as well as discover intentions on actions you take. For relationship matters, it’s a way to classify the compatibility you have with your partner.

Others may be driven by a wanderlust that has them chasing the great new things they’re sure lie just over the horizon. In some words, it unveils the truth behind your relationship, whether it’s a take for granted or for a lifetime match in heaven.

How To Calculate Your Number

In Western numerology, you use the vowels of your full name to calculate your soul urge number. We use vowels for this number because they contribute to the linking sound in the syllable. To see what we mean, say your name out loud. You’ll find that every vowel sound serves the purpose of bringing the whole name together. 


  1. Apply the Pythagorean system. It’s essential to use your full name or a birth name for this process. To complete the calculation, you’ll need your name and the Pythagorean numerology chart.

The chart tells you which number is associated with which letter. It is as follows:

A, J, S 

B, K, T 

C, L, U 

D, M, V

E, N, W 

F, O, X 

G, P, Y 

H, Q, Z

I, R

  1. Second, separate the vowels from the full name. Take it as an example: 

Brad Michael Ortega – AIAEOEA.

  1. From there, we assign the numbers to the vowels and add them together: AIAEOEA.

1 + 9 + 1 + 5 + 6 + 5 + 1 = 28

  1. Lastly, reduce the number to a single digit.

2 + 8 = 10

1 + 0 = 1

In this example, the number 1 reveals a natural leader who generally excels in a business setting. Although they may also ascend to a higher management position within a company, they might become entrepreneurs.

Ambition is one of the hallmarks of this soul number. As such, this person would need a partner who supports and understands that ambition. The partner would also need to offer the freedom he needs to pursue his ambitions.


Compatibility in Numerology

The soul urge number is the most significant for calculating romantic compatibility — aside from the life path number, destiny number, and personality number, which are part of the five core numbers in numerology that describe and affect how compatible you are with the person. In an ideal relationship, you’d find yourself on a similar life path number to your partner. This means you have a life purpose and will support each other in achieving them.

The personality number represents the first impression you make on others. We may call this the all-important chemistry that we have with individuals. They’re going to be attracted to you and those who won’t. Typically, it is the number of identities that determines your magnetism and the individuals you draw.

Why Is It So Important?

As mentioned above, it highlights your heart’s desire. That’s especially important in a relationship, as many of us turn away from our heart’s desires, thanks to the other core numbers’ influence.

For example, you may find your partner has a magnetic personality that draws you in. This means that your personality numbers are compatible. However, this only covers the surface level of the relationship. The personality number is all about first impressions. Once you dig beneath it, you may find that you have wildly different desires for the connection.

But let’s simplify things and refocus on the soul urge number again. After all, this number indicates if the relationship will truly work on a deeper level. Often, further exploration of each other’s soul urge numbers will show that you’re less compatible than you thought. Check out the practice and example of number compatibility.


Soul Urge Compatibility in Practice

It’s a common misconception that you and your partner must have the same number to be compatible. That’s rarely the case. Having the same number could lead to conflicts, depending on what the number is.

Here’s a numerology chart showing the percentage compatibility between different soul urge numbers:

As we can see above, there are many examples of the same number proving incompatible. The compatibility comes out at 55% in the majority of cases. This chart shows us that there’s no such thing as perfect compatibility. That’s because there are other factors at play beyond the number. In this chart, 75% is the highest possible because we need room for other relationship influencers.

However, we can make this chart to provide an example of soul urge compatibility in practice.

Compatibility Example

Let’s use the same name that we used in our calculation above – Brad Michael Ortega. As you recall, Brad has a soul urge number 1. Now, let’s imagine he has a partner named Claire Louise Connor. We need to find her number to discover if they’re compatible when it comes to their heart’s desires.

Separating the vowels in Claire’s name gives us the following:

Claire Louise Connor – AIEOUIEOO.

Using the Pythagorean system, we create the following calculation:


1 + 9 + 5 + 6 + 3 + 9 + 5 + 6 + 6 = 50

5 + 0 = 5

After checking it in a soul calculator, Claire has a soul urge number of 5. This means that she has a deep desire for freedom and isn’t keen on getting tied down. She likely enjoys traveling and loves to experience new things. Now, using the above chart, we can check the compatibility.

First, we check the left-hand column for Brad’s master number 1. Then, we move across to Claire’s number 5. This reveals a compatibility percentage of 65%, which is a good start for this couple. But this is only a small part of the puzzle. The couple’s other core master numbers will dictate the real success of the relationship.

Are You Compatible With Your Partner?

Following the above method will help you to determine your soul urge compatibility with your partner. The higher the compatibility, the better the chances of the relationship working on a deeper level. However, you have to understand the roles the other core numbers play in incompatibility. To get the most accurate idea, you and your partner need to undergo a full relationship reading.
