The Soul Urge 22 is a masterful, practical and spirit-driven number to have in your Core Numerology Chart.

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


Whatever your Soul Urge is, it’s a great number to know. But with a Master Number 22, it becomes an even more important piece of the puzzle. Master Numbers are highly intuitive and spiritually connected numbers, which is what the Soul Urge is all about. So knowing this element of your personal numerology chart can support and justify many of those innate knowings you just can’t explain, yet feel with great intensity.

Whilst your Life Path Number describes the direction of your journey through life, and your Destiny, or Expression Number reveals your gifts, talents, personality, and unique offerings to the world, the Soul Urge describes 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, the spiritual urge behind what your Soul came here to experience in this lifetime.

In Pythagorean Numerology, the Soul Urge Number is calculated using the vowel sounds in your full name at birth. Yes, only the vowels. Unlike the consonants, vowels denote the Spiritual force that moves through you, like the breath which animates us all.

The corresponding numerical values of these vowels are summed and reduced, until a single digit (or master number) is revealed. Yet it can get a little tricky, as in some names, certain vowels are treated as consonants (the letter Y can be a real sticky spot!)

What is the Meaning of SOUL URGE (Master Number) 22/4?

You have a deep and profound need to become a masterful teacher and manifest inspired ideas into form and practice.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to evolve spiritually. But there’s a catch. With the Master Number 22/4 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.

It’s funny because most people want to have Master Numbers in their chart, thinking the Master Number is superior to a “regular” number. But this is just not so….

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.

There’s an undeniable intensity related to carrying the Master vibration with you and therefore extremely important to know how to optimize and manage it so you don’t succumb to the “crash-and-burn” that can result when you attempt to shine too brightly, too rapidly – or the self-destruction that can result when you’re avoiding or sublimating your mission.

The Master Number 22 Reveals a Spiritual Path

The basic foundation that those with this number in their charts need 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 a 22/4 Soul Urge to build something of lasting value in the world – and to use your strong knowledge base to teach and instruct others.

What does this mean?

For you with a 22/4 Soul Urge, it means that the foundational energy of your soul’s desires aligns with the archetypes of the number 4. You are the ultimate teacher, a developer of strong systems, and a purveyor of hard work, while always managing to meet clearly defined goals.

But in addition to this, you contain the master number powers of the 2, in double intensity! It’s as though you’re a Siamese twin and your twin is the Yang to your Yin. The 2 is all about diplomacy, patience and love, and is highly emotionally sensitive; while the 4 is all about gathering knowledge, and building and maintaining the systems and foundations which keep life contained.

The Numbers 2 and 4: Business Numbers?

As Numerologist Glynis McCant’s observes, the 2 and the 4 are “business” numbers: The 2 is in the business of love and relationship and the 4 is in the business of security and stability.

Whilst the energy of the 4 is most related to limitation and feels safe and comfortable with rules, often seeing things as “black or white”; while the energy of the 2 is most directly related to the emotions and focuses first and foremost on the needs of others.

So can you see how there might be a few issues along the way!?


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 play by the rules, color within the lines, and stay “inside the box.” whilst also share, collaborate and be madly in love with the world around you!
  • It’s a mix of needing to take risks and trust your instincts, and at the same time having nothing scare you more than exactly that!
  • It’s a constant wrestle with letting go of micromanaging while taking the plunge and thinking bigger.
  • You’re perpetually riding the teeter-totter of “let’s just stay home” and “let’s build this and bring it to the world.”


The Soul Urge 22/4 is the Master Builder

Many numerologists will say that the Master Number 22 is the most powerful force in Numerology. Its energy carries with it a potent ability to manifest great things, yet the requirements for success are focused goals, organization, and doggedly following step-by-step processes. It’s vital to understand that this isn’t “slapdash” sort of energy. The Soul Urge brings the frequency of the slow and steady progress needed to build something solid, tangible, and useful.

The Soul Urge 22 comes to work early and goes to bed late (metaphorically speaking). If you expect this to be a light frolic and an easy time, you’ll be in for a shock! Yet this is the energy that your soul chose for you to work with, in this lifetime. If you can nurture the expectation of core feelings of satisfaction and purpose, whilst taking the time, energy and planning to get from point A to point Z, then you’ll be using this powerful energy optimally.

You’re at your optimum when recognizing and blazing through limitations – both external limitations and limitations that are self-imposed. This Soul Urge number is a powerful one, demanding that you learn how to focus and manifest in the practical world.

This is important:

Without bringing your grand ideas to actuality, and expressing your personal breakthroughs by actually building something real in the world, you are not truly fulfilling your potential.

Almost, but not quite.

Your real gift comes in being an example to others and teaching through what you do. The very best way you can teach and uplift others is by example.

When you’re engaging with the more challenging aspects of the 22/4, you can struggle with being hard-headed, bossy in a not-so-useful way, and inflexible. If you become caught up in the underactive elements of the 22/4, you’ll veer toward being incapable of setting down roots, making commitments to either work, family or career and even making simple decisions. Quite simply, your downfall involves opting out of anything requiring dedication or hard work.

Some of your internal struggles might include feeling discouraged or “done in” by the intense requirements of this demanding Soul Urge. You might find that you have real trouble bringing forth any of your ideas into material form in the world. And since you’re learning all about the intricacies of setting goals and then going on to reach them, you may struggle with giving up before you even begin, or lack the fortitude to stick to something long enough to see it come to fruition.


Soul Urge 22 Love & Compatibility

Your compatibility in relationships will depend very much upon your partner’s patience, care and ability to understand your need for a secure, committed foundation as well as your need to be out there doing good in the world. As a highly loyal and exceptionally trustworthy partner, you expect the same in return. But your potentially turbulant path through life means that you may not be always able to give as much time and energy into personal relationships as you would like.

Hence needing an understanding partner.

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.

The numbers you have most compatibility with are the 2, 4, 6 and the 22.

The numbers you have least compatibility with (though the ones where you have most to learn) are the 3 and 5.
