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!

soul urge 9 hearts desireSoul Urge 9

You have a deep need to achieve a higher state of consciousness, teach others how to achieve theirs and learn to give and receive.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to engage in humanitarian service – to be of use to the higher good.  Yours is a spiritual path and you’re here to love unconditionally and with the utmost compassion, however that may manifest in your life.

The number 9 is the number of completion.  It’s the number of the old soul, of letting go, of releasing attachments, and of loss.  It’s also the number of “limited rewards.”  Meaning, you act and give without immediate thought of reward or gain.  This isn’t to say that you aren’t lined up for a life filled with all the great things the material world has to offer.  Yet it does indicate that luxury or money as the ultimate goal isn’t in the cards – money can be a byproduct of your humanitarian-inspired service yet not the singular focus or goal.

Underneath it all, you’ve “signed up” for a life-long course in the “Art of Buddhist Living.”  Meaning, you’re being asked to stay in the present, release the past without bitterness, and to move into the future with curiosity and an open heart.  Sound easy?  Hum . . .  not so much.

You’re at your optimal when you’re tapping into your creativity, sensitivity, and selflessness.  This Soul Urge number is a powerful one demanding that you learn to release attachment and use your talents, creativity, and compassion to make the world a better place.

Since you’re here to be the champion for the underdog, often you are yourself the outcast or misfit.  Or you simply relate to those who are not in the mainstream, who are quirky, have disabilities or have any other “impediment” that places them outside the margins.

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 tripping over into the arena of resentment, intolerance, or gullibility.  You can struggle with an inflated sense of idealism and find it difficult to ask for help or support.

soul urge 9Understand that often others perceive you as arrogant or unapproachable.  Realize that everyone thinks you have it all together and often others think you’re in charge even if you’re new to the game.  You’re the poster child for “fake it ‘til you make it.”

Since you’re learning integrity and cultivating wisdom, you’ll have a treasure trove of opportunities to be tested on all levels.  And the trick is – you’re usually the one who gives, gives, and gives some more.  Yet you’re learning how to give and to receive.  So there will often be an imbalance one way or the other in your life.  Either you’re too much of a giver or too much of a taker.

You need to be aware that people respond much more favorably to you when you connect with them through being an active and compassionate listener rather than a preacher, lecturer, or proselytizer. You often have an intimidating or intense quality to you, despite your big heart.

Know that your 9 Soul Urge is a profound journey that offers you multifaceted opportunities to touch the lives of others and heal some of your own deepest wounds.  At your core, you’re a gentle soul and your heart’s desire is to serve others and leave the world a better place while you’re here and when you’re gone.

With the 9 as your Soul Urge, this might be something only you can see or feel.  Or alternately, you may use your creativity freely and passionately, act with compassion, and serve the higher good in a substantial way.  It ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your compassionate and humanitarian-focused number 9.
