Soul Urge Number Calculator

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 4?

You have a deep need to create something of value that people can find beneficial in their day-to-day lives.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to build something of lasting value. Whether it’s a family of your own, a business, or another enterprise, you’re all about stability and security.

You’re hardworking, are likely a pillar of your community, and are imminently trustworthy. In fact, honesty, loyalty, and a trusting outlook are some of your most wonderful attributes.

Know that you have the potential to be a stellar marriage or business partner.


Your heart’s desire revolves around being practical and hardworking. You are the systems-builder extraordinaire! You strive to keep order, and thrive on stability and security.

The number 4 also brings in certain family-related wounds that will be central to your decisions and actions in life. Of course, everyone has “family issues,” yet part of your particular soul’s calling is to come to terms with yours, and to work to heal them. Often, the method to do this will involve creating order from chaos. This will likely mean providing a solid family environment or a stable lifestyle that you didn’t feel you received during childhood.

Understand that – like all aspects of Numerology – the highest manifestation of this number is a goal. The Soul Urge can feel like an underlying drive that you just can’t explain – even to yourself. Yet it’s part of you. Also, understand that to get to a place of fulfillment, you’ll experience more focused and intense challenges on this particular path, to mastering these aspects of your heart’s desire.

Some of your internal struggles might include rigidness, stubbornness, and a fear of taking risks. You must find ways to expand your focus and take some calculated risks or you’ll experience frustration because you haven’t achieved what you know you could achieve.

The number 4 is all about coming to terms with limitations – working with them, understanding when you’ve created your own limitations, and working through and around whatever the perceived limitations might be, in order to meet your goals.

You could avoid putting down roots, shy away from hard work, and avoid having a family of your own. Expressing emotion can be a struggle. Sometimes you can become so self-sacrificing that you become the martyr or tyrant (“My way or the highway!”). This stems from your need to control and also from your high level of expectation about your own performance—and the performance of others. Overcoming perfectionist tendencies could form a large part of your journey.

Relationships with you, number 4, will always be committed, loyal and true.

Because you care so deeply for the wellbeing of your family and community, your own romantic relationships form a part of this too. For you, love is about strength and creating a safe place to grow from.

As a typical provider, you will likely attract people who need to be supported – be especially careful that you aren’t being taken for a ride in relationships. Even though your natural state is to give generously, it’s important to keep a balance.

The journey of the Soul Urge Number 4 is also connected to healing familial and ancestral wounds, so it’s likely that your closest relationships in life will involve some deep soul clearing. Once you look at them through this lens, your patterns may begin to make a little more sense.

Overall, you need security (though at times, you may express feelings of quite the opposite!) You will likely struggle with a partner expressing very free-spirited traits. Be careful of expressing controlling tendencies.

It’s likely 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 the highest compatibility are the 6, 1, 8 and the 11.

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


PinSoul Urge 4 Career, Work & Lifestyle Ideas

Down at your core, you desire outlets for managing, getting organized, and creating a foundation from which to build your life or enterprise.

Think a little bigger.

Don’t succumb to seeing work as a necessary evil – since work is a huge part of the vibration of the 4 (it’s the number of hard work!) – you might find that it takes you a while to settle on a career that suits you. So don’t settle for less than you feel passionate about, and love to do.

Folks who have a 4 in their chart either have the tendency to work really hard from early on in their lives or they are the proverbial “slackers” who take their sweet time before they realize that they feel much better when there’s a focused plan, committing to the work hard it takes to get the job done.

Make a concerted decision. Put down roots.


Careers such as teaching, mentoring and training could be especially fulfilling. Or anything where you are required to create systems – such as working in computing or programming. Yet your grounded qualities could also be much better suited to working out of doors, in landscape gardening or horticulture, especially if you’re someone who yearns for the great outdoors.

With the 4 as your Soul Urge, the frequency of this number might be something only you can see or feel. Or alternately, you may already, naturally work with great tenacity, bask in checking off the goals on your punch-list, and revel in sharing your vast knowledge with others with great consistency!

It ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your steady and hard-working number 4.
