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 6?

You have a deep need to provide loving service and a nurturing environment for yourself and your loved ones.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to nurture and serve, plain and simple. Whether it’s your family and loved ones or your business or community, you’re a creator of beauty, harmony, and balance.


You’re the one with a polished presentation about you and have a magnetic quality that’s undeniable. Down deep, you are a walking “satellite dish” of emotional receptivity and while that’s a blessing, it can also be a curse. This is because you’re a natural counselor who can see the “bigger picture” and often get miffed when others can’t.


You’re an idealist at heart – and a perfectionist in mind!

Your biggest lesson in life is to cut yourself (and others) some slack and embrace the perfection of the imperfection of virtually everything: From politics and the environment to the way your spouse leaves their clothes in a mess, or your kids don’t make straight A’s in school.

You may find yourself in positions of responsibility early on in your life and that sense of responsibility will continue as you mature.

Fairness is an important theme in your life – you often feel an underlying need to seek fair and equitable solutions to the injustices of the world.

Understand that – like all aspects of Numerology – the Soul Urge Number manifests as a goal, and its energy can feel as like an underlying drive that you can’t explain – even to yourself. Yet it’s important to also understand that you’ll experience more focused and intense challenges on the path to mastering these particular aspects of path.

PinSoul Urge 6 Career, Work & Lifestyle

You’re in your element when you’re expressing gratitude, generosity, acceptance of others, and giving comfort to others in times of need. You express your soul’s urge through love and service.

As such, work in the caring professions such as nursing, childcare, healthcare or alternative healing therapies will likely appeal to you. Yet it’s vital that you work to hold firm boundaries so that your own energy doesn’t get depleted.

As one of the most creative numbers, any work where you are using your artistic flair will also bring fulfillment. In fact, as Soul Urge 6 people can tend to be people-pleasers, they often place their own creativity on the back burner whilst ensuring everyone else gets the opportunities. Being able to satisfy your creative side through work means less chance of frustration and martyrdom when family and other responsibilities take over in your spare time.

Some of your internal struggles might include self-righteousness, codependency, or meddling martyr (“Look at how much I do for everyone else and what do I get? Nothing!”). Your soul’s true calling is in healthy nurturing, compassionate detachment, acceptance of others (get past that perfectionism!), and adding beauty and your beautiful vision to the world.

Living from the heart means putting yourself first – this is something you’d do well to remember!

When you extract yourself from your self-imposed world of “shoulds,” you’re on the right track.

You’ll have a tendency to lose yourself and your identity because you’re so busy taking care of others and taking over the responsibilities of others. Or alternately, you can default into the irresponsible side of the energy of the 6 and care only about yourself and what you want to do – and do it whenever you want to, despite the fact that you’re shirking your duties and responsibilities to those around you.

The contradiction is that you need to feel indispensable to others and yet resent the fact that others rely on you too much.

One of your specialties is damage control, so when things are moving along without trauma or drama, you have a tendency to either sweat it (while you wait for another fire to put out!) or you stir things up in order to have a problem on which to focus your energies.

PinLooking for a Soulmate? Soul Urge 6 Love & Compatibility

As a caring and generous partner, you have a lot of love to give.

This core number is romantic and loving, with an innate understanding of what other people (aka your partner) need to feel not only cherished but to simply get to work on time!

You desire nothing more than a happy family life! The other important people in life are this numbers priority, so you’re committed and prepared to work hard in a relationship.

It’s likely you really need a partner who’s as invested as you are in the long term, but you’re also more than able to hold the domestic fort, if your partner needs more freedom. Just beware of slipping into pre-defined roles too early on – it’s vital you get space for self-care too.


Beware of partnering with someone who is more of a “patient” than a true partner because you’ll find yourself becoming an enabler rather than a nurturer. Remember that your soul’s mission is to balance and modulate your sense of responsibility – not overly responsible (meddling, self-righteous, perfectionist) and not overly irresponsible (self-centered, judgmental, controlling).

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 the most compatibility with are the 3, 4, and the 9.

The numbers you have least compatibility (though the ones where you have most to learn) are the 1 and 8.


PinSoul Urge 6: A Path into Creating Safe Spaces and Beauty

With the 6 as your Soul Urge, all of this might be something only you can see or feel. Or alternatively, maybe you easily act with innate loving compassion, using your creative visionary abilities to create business and beauty?

Whether you realize it or not, your forte is likely offering yourself and those around you a nurturing home environment and being a supportive “go to” person for friends and family.

It ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your nurturing number 6.
