The Soul Urge is the number that reveals what drives you from a soul-level.

Sometimes referred to as the Heart’s Desire or Soul’s Desire, this core number contains powerful insight into your deepest and most eternal motivating forces.

It’s a great number to know because it can explain some of your more “irrational” thoughts and feelings, those innate knowings you just can’t explain, yet you feel with great intensity.

Whilst your Life Path Number describes the direction of your journey through life, and your Expression Number reveals your gifts, talents and unique offerings to the world, the Soul Urge puts you back in touch with your essence. It can bring real clarity around your mission in life, and uncover your purpose, so if you’re looking for answers, the Soul Urge is quite often the missing piece that provides them.

The Soul Urge, quite simply, reveals the guiding force behind what your Soul came here to experience in this lifetime.

SOUL URGE Number 11/2

You have a deep desire to reach for higher states of consciousness, and on your way there, you must learn to develop authentic and satisfying relationships.

Look deep into your soul, you’ll see that you have an underlying and urgent need to evolve spiritually.  But there’s a catch.  With the Master Number 11/2 as your Soul Urge, you’ve got your work cut out.

It will be hugely beneficial for you to at the offset, that your soul’s mission will truly take a lifetime of development, so pace yourself. Your heart’s desire requires deeply felt experiences and through the course of your life, you will be tested over and over again.  The ultimate lesson of the Soul Urge is that life is a marathon, not a sprint.

There is an ongoing irony attached to Master Numbers, because on discovering numerology, many people want to see Master Number drawn up in their chart, thinking that a Master Number is somehow superior to a “regular” number.

Untrue.

A Master Number indicates that before incarnating, you opted into this lifetime on Earth with higher potential, yet with more intense challenges.   These challenges will often manifest as life-long feelings of internal (and sometimes external) nervous tension, feelings that you’re never doing enough, being enough, doing it right, or living up to your potential.

Yet those with Master Numbers are the ones being called upon to step up and take the lead in some fashion, to think bigger, and to make a mark, so it’s not an easy road.

So if you’re working through life with a Master Number, don’t expect it to be easy … And if you’ve yet to decode your personal numerology chart, be careful what you wish for!

There’s an undeniable intensity related to carrying the Master vibration, so it’s extremely important to know how to optimize and manage it, so you don’t crash-and-burn. Attempting to shine too brightly too rapidly, or suppressing, sublimating or ignoring your mission can both be painful routes to self-sabotage, and need to be avoided.

The Master Number 11 Reveals a Spiritual Path

Yet the basic foundation it needs can take literally years of trial-and-error to form the basis from which to build, and then act.  

Brené Brown’s definition of spirituality asserts that:

“… spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to one another by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and belonging. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives. (Rising Strong, 10).

This is at the core of your being – it is your deepest and fondest desire with an 11/2 Soul Urge to experience a profound sense of heightened purpose in your life.

The Innate Conflict of Master Numbers

What does this mean?

For you with an 11/2 Soul Urge, it means that the foundational energy of your deep desire resides with the number 2.  You’re a mediator, a diplomat, and a purveyor of love and relationships. You express incredible emotional sensitivity and are the master or mistress of patience.

But in addition to this, you contain the master number powers of the 1, in double intensity! The 1 is concerned with YOU, and making a mark in the world, coming first and championing above all else. The 1 contains the driving energy of initiation, leadership, innovation, independence, and is often the quirky individualist.

The 1 seeks to take the lead while the 2 seeks to be the supportive power behind the throne. It’s as though you’re a Siamese twin, yet your twin is the Yang to your Yin.

This dichotomy of ruling power is the root cause of the issues and concerns that you carry with you through life:

  • It is a constant push/pull between wanting to tell others what to do, whilst also wanting others to define tasks and tell you what to do!
  • It’s a mix of being pushed into the spotlight, and at the same time having nothing scare you more than exactly that!
  • It’s a constant wrestle to level the ego, to reach manageable and productive realms.
  • You’re perpetually riding the edges between me and us, diplomacy and leadership, independence and interdependence.

The Master Number 11/2 is the spiritual messenger

You bring a heightened and refined energy to whatever you do and yet here is the inherent frustration:  What you bring to the mix is somewhat intangible.  And therefore it’s difficult to trust that you’re on task or having any significant impact because what you do best is primarily etheric and energetic.

As an example or a metaphor, let’s say you’re an artist.  Your painting is on display at a gallery or museum and a lot of people come and view it.  As they experience your painting, there is something that is affected inside of the person viewing it – something changes, something that even they don’t understand, let alone are able to enunciate.  Yet your work has shifted them in an unspeakable way that will be a part of their lives forever.

The Master Number 11/2 is the wounded healer

Underneath it all, you are the “wounded healer” and your gift is to serve as an inspiration to evolve, in whatever form you choose.  This may be through parenting, your career, your devotion to pets or causes, or any other aspect of life where you feel a deep connection.  Know that you have gifts in the realm of artistic creativity.

You’re at your optimal when acting upon healthy emotional and energetic boundaries, serving the needs of a group dynamic, and developing your relationship with yourself, with others, and with the spiritual realm.

The Soul Urge 11 is a powerful number, demanding that you learn how to level your ego, trust your intuition, and serve as a conduit for spiritual energy to move and speak through you.

Soul Urge 11 Challenges

When you’re engaging with the challenging aspects of the 11/2, you can struggle with childish combativeness, narcissism, or be ruled by undisciplined emotions.

You can traverse through relationship after relationship without being able to find the “true love” that you so deeply crave. In fact, this unrequited love often stems from an unrealistic view of what love actually is, and a lack of understanding of the healthy give-and-take dynamic, that a successful relationship requires.

Some of your internal struggles may include being more of a “dreamer” than a doer”. You may find that you have trouble bringing forth any of your ideas into form in the material world, and the practical elements of manifestation may baffle you!

Soul Urge 11 Compatibility

Your compatibility in relationships will depend very much upon your partner’s patience and understanding of your spiritual quest.  But this isn’t to say relationships should be neglected – one of the missions of this master number is to understand the intricacies of creating and maintaining a healthy and successful relationship.

Because of this, you may find that you experience many different relationship dynamics throughout your life. The Soul Urge Number of each partner you meet will teach you a lot about yourself, so ensure that you regard each relationship as a teacher.

Your most compatible numbers are the 1, 2, 3 and the 22.

Your least compatible numbers (though the ones where you have most to learn) are the 3 and 5.

The Journey Is The Reward

Know that your 11/2 Soul Urge is a profound journey that offers you multifaceted opportunities to create loving environments, dig deep into relationships, and bring an evolved and spiritually heightened energy to all of your interactions.

At your core, you’re a spiritual messenger who is highly intuitive and creative, but with the 11/2 as your Soul Urge, this may be something only you can see or feel.  Or alternately, you may tap into your loving diplomacy, heightened creativity, and super-charged spirituality in a hugely substantial way.

As with all of numerology, it ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your inspired and spiritually focused number 11/2.
