SOUL URGEThere is living and then there is feeling alive!

Calculating your soul number can help you get back in touch with what really moves you in your life, your reason for being and what gives you true fulfillment.

If you are depressed or seem to be going in the wrong direction in life, the calculation of the soul number can remind you what puts a lift in your step and the sparkle back in your eyes.

Your Soul Number, which defines your very essence or heart’s desire, is calculated using the vowels in the name that appeared on your birth certificate.

First of all, eliminate all the consonants from your birth name by adding together the numerical equivalents displayed on the chart below.

A = 1
E = 5
I = 9
O = 6
U = 3

Paris Hilton – An Example In Calculating & Interpreting The Soul Urge Number

For amusement’s sake let’s take the example of Paris Hilton as this week’s case study.

A person who seems very materialistic and a little shallow; in other words it is difficult to see what her real heart’s desire might be on the surface.

1. Eliminate The Consonants

Paris’ full birth name is Paris Whitney Hilton. After we eliminate all the consonants from her name we end up with: AI IE IO

2. Add Up The Numerical Equivalents Of The Remaining Vowels

We then would refer to the above chart and add the numerical equivalents of the vowels in her name together as in:

1+9 + 9+5 + 9+6 = 39

Adding 3 + 9 gives us 12. Adding 1 + 2 gives us 3.

So Paris Hilton’s soul number is a 3.

3. Interpret The Soul Urge Number

There are no surprises here. Paris Hilton’s soul urge is to delight and amuse others. Threes are the performers and entertainers of the numerology system and one mark of a three is that they will always crave fame. Three is definitely the number of the showoff, which is fully displayed by her love of outrageous clothing.

The fact that she is a three also explains why Hilton, who does not need to work for a living, spends so much of her time modeling, acting and making personal appearances. This call to greater things can make her quite inflexible emotionally. All of her energy would be channeled into career and travel as opposed to putting down roots anywhere.

The romantic life of a three is often marked by very rocky phases. It is difficult for others to understand the three’s need to find approval outside the sphere of a relationship. This is because mass approval often means more to them than an individual intimacy.

In love, three is the number of separation and people with a soul urge number three may often find something coming between them and love. Usually this issue is career or travel but many threes find themselves being the odd man out in a love triangle.

Because of their mercurial natures threes often always find themselves in a series of relationships and rarely stay put in one relationship for life. In the case of Hilton’s most famous relationship with another Paris, it seems that her scandalous reputation was the element that came between her and the approval of his billionaire parents.

Soul Urge Number Interpretations

Now that you’ve calculated your own or your loved one’s soul urge number, scroll below to find its interpretation.


Your soul urge is to be the best. As you believe you are directly connected to a higher power you just can’t bear it when you let yourself and others down. In your universe you are the sun and everything and everybody else rotates around you. You live to be the center of attention. One of your soul lessons might be to recognize that “to rule is truly to serve.”


Your soul urge is to be admired and loved by all. The height of personal gratification for you is to be desired by a special someone. You have an enormous faith in other people and if they do let you down you tend to behave as if it’s the end of the world. One of your soul challenges is to realize that only God is perfect and others are not god-like in their actions.


Your soul urge is about the cultivation and expression of your personality. Usually this energy manifests as a great achievement in the theatrical or artistic world. You shine at any kind of activity that involves public performance including acting, singing or politics. You desire to be admired for your craft and one of your soul challenges might be to recognize that there will always be a critic.


Stability, beauty and order satiate your soul. You find a Zen-like satisfaction in performing the simplest of repetitive chores as you feel closest to God when you are restoring harmony to unbalanced situations. You are a perfectionist that loves art and design. One of the challenges of your number is that sometimes others don’t understand your need for everything to be perfect and see you as controlling.


Change fuels the fires of your inner passions. You have an inquisitive mind and a thirst for adventure that is only satisfied by the collecting of unusual experiences and plenty of travel. You appreciate the fact that life is short and are bound and determined to make the most of every minute you have on this earth. One of the challenges of this soul number is setting down real roots and foundations in life.


Your soul urge is to nurture and take care of others. You love people and believe the greatest expression of your inner divinity is through teaching and guidance. You are happiest when you see the positive results of your influence blossom in other people. However, you also have a tendency to become very attached to a perceived soulmate. One of your challenges is to learn to “let go” when relationships end.


The highest calling of your soul is to learn about everything scientific and esoteric. It is knowledge that feeds your soul. You love to read and subjects such as history, science, metaphysics, physics, archaeology and religion fuel your rich imagination with inspiration and ideas. Many of you are geniuses and because of this one of the challenges of your number is to be understood by a stupid world.


Your soul urge is to “go forth and multiply” especially when it comes to family dynasties and aggregating wealth. The highest expression of your soul urge number is when you are in power and improving the lives of those that work for you or love you. You support anything that brings beauty, meaning and profit to the world. The challenge of this number is to realize that “money isn’t everything.”


The highest expression of your soul’s urge is to connect in a mystical way with others. Although your aspirations are lofty, you are also a humanitarian who is often gifted with a sharp intuition and keen analytical skills. Your faith in yourself, God and the future is so strong that you live by your convictions. Your challenge in life is to be understood as more than a fanatic or flake by others who may not understand your idealism.


Your soul’s purpose is to manifest ideals into reality; Your highest calling is to become the master of a religion or of a spiritual realm. You are the ultimate seeker of truth and will go to any lengths to find a spiritual teacher or guru. This search often leads you on a path that is full of many pitfalls and disappointments as you realize that one spiritual system doesn’t work for you or that a guru or teacher is only human after all.


You have the highest soul calling of all of the numbers, as it is the call to transform the world permanently and for the better. Usually you are born with all of the tools that you need to accomplish this including a stable personality, intelligence, courage and charisma. Perhaps the most healing thing for your soul is simply to read out loud the words of ancient texts as these writings resonate very strongly with the noblest aspirations of your higher self.
