Your Soul Urge number, also known as your Heart’s Desire or Soul Desire, indicates what motivates you down deep into your core.This is the number that reveals to you what drives you from a soul-level.

This is a great number to know because it might explain some of those “irrational” thoughts and feelings you come up against – those feelings you just can’t explain, yet you feel with great intensity. How “surprising” they are to you will depend on how in alignment your Soul Urge number is with the rest of your Core Numbers.


The rest are coming! Just hold on tight! We’ll be releasing one each week!


You have a deep need to bring an elevated form of loving service to the world.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to evolve spiritually – no matter how you define it. Yet here’s the catch. With the Master Number 33/6, you’ve got your work cut out for you.

It’s beneficial to understand that this will truly take a lifetime of development, so pace yourself. Your heart’s desire requires deeply felt experience and tests you over and over again. This Soul Urge 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. This is just not so. Yet let me explain.
The Master Numbers indicate that you opted into this lifetime with higher potential, yet also with more intense challenges. So honestly, when you’re working with a Master Number, it ain’t easy. So be careful what you wish for!

This translates into 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.

Step Up & Lead

And those with Master Numbers are always being called upon to step up and take the lead in some fashion, to think bigger, and to make a mark.

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.

Yours is a spiritual path. Yet even that basic foundation can take years of trial-and-error to embrace and then act upon. You’ll find that you’ll have even higher hurdles to jump and more complicated road blocks to work around, over, and through. I love Brené Brown’s definition of spirituality.   She 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 33/6 Soul Urge to act upon a deep sense of joyful loving service – and to use your heightened creativity and love of beauty to the fullest. And you wrap it all up with a super-responsible bow!

Spiritual Conflict

33 numerology

The Master Numbers are innately in conflict with themselves. What does this mean? For you with a 33/6 Soul Urge, it means that the foundation of your deep desire resides with the energy of the number 6. You’re the nurturer – the magnetic visionary, justice seeker, and master or mistress of the domestic realm.

Yet then you must add on the double 3. It’s as though you’re a Siamese twin and your twin is the Yang to your Yin. The 3 is all about creative self-expression, communication, optimism, and emotional sensitivity while the 6 is all about nurturing, love, duty, service, responsibility, and the creation of beauty.

I find that the 33/6 is a rather enigmatic calling. It’s as though your soul is asking you to elevate your thoughts and actions into the “Mother Teresa” realm while also being dynamic, creative, and joyful in the process. So try that on for size, right?

Can you see how there might be a few issues along the way?

It’s a constant push/pull between wanting to be of service and help and heal others – and yet you might also find that your perfectionism and judgment of others gets in the way. The Master number is asking you to commit – to step into the spotlight, into leadership positions, and trust in your ability to provide joyful and helpful service to a larger audience in whatever form you choose.

It’s a constant wrestle with letting go of self-righteousness and control while infusing love and service into all you do. You’re perpetually riding the teeter-totter of “I want to heal the world” and “The world doesn’t deserve what I have to give.”

The 33/6 is the conduit of joyful, loving, and nurturing service. Yet you can easily tip into the martyr role. Rather than being helpful you can opt for meddling. Rather than loving you can judge harshly and critically.

Understand that “Master” actually means “Teacher,” not someone who’s superior, the boss, or a slave driver!

33 numerologyAvoiding Burn Out

With the 33/6 Soul Urge, your basic “Master 33/6 Soul Urge 101” Class is to master self-care. You must learn to know and love yourself first before you can extend your gift of love and service to others.

When you’re engaging with the challenging aspects of the 33/6, you can struggle with being controlling, intolerant, and an unrealistic perfectionist.

If you work with the underactive elements of the 33/6, you’ll veer toward being a doormat to the point of resentment or ill health. You’ll be challenged with standing up for yourself with healthy physical and emotional boundaries.

If you work with the overactive elements of the 33/6, you’ll veer toward being a critical bulldozer or perhaps have issues with stepping into your higher calling at all by being addictive, irresponsible, and self-absorbed.

It helps to know that that you’re highly emotionally sensitive and permeable.

Understand that – like all aspects of Numerology – this is a goal and as the Soul Urge this can feel as though it’s an underlying drive that you can’t explain – even to yourself. Yet also understand that you’ll experience more focused and intense challenges on the path to mastering these particular aspects of your heart’s desire.

Some of your internal struggles might include being discouraged or “done in” by the intense requirements of this demanding Soul Urge. You might find that you take on the “weight of the world” and can’t see past its vast injustices and imperfections. You’re an idealist and have the gift of seeing “the bigger picture” where others can’t. This can lead to frustration and difficulty in seeing beauty in the smaller things.

You’re learning the perfection of the imperfection of everything. You’re also learning to speak your truth in an authentic and compassionate manner.

Know that your 33/6 Soul Urge is a profound journey that offers multifaceted opportunities to inspire people with your joyful service and creativity – whether that’s by acting, music, medicine, counseling, being a homemaker or any other creative endeavor. At your core, you’re a spiritual guide who is highly intuitive and infinitely loving.

With the 33/6 as your Soul Urge, this might be something only you can see or feel. Or alternately, you may tap into your nurturing disposition, emotional self-expression, and service and make positive use of your super-charged spirituality in a substantial way. It ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your responsible and nurturing number 33/6.
