How to Calculate Your Name Number?
To calculate you destiny number enter your full birth name into the calculator field below. The calculator uses the Pythagorean method.
Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean. While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.
Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:
|8||3||9||5||3||7||= 35||= 8|
|4||6||5||1||3||2||= 21||= 3|
|1||6||1||5||3||1||= 17||= 8|
As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.

What is the Destiny Number
The single digit number of your name reveals the energy you attract from others and the world. Knowing your Destiny Number helps you understand why people want you to play a certain role in life.
Unlike the Life Path Number which drives the individual, the Destiny Number is the pulse of energy that turns people in their direction for a specific reason, related to the number meaning of that Destiny.
The Number 8 as Your Destiny
These are the people others look to for leadership in any situation, not just a crisis. Being seen as the leader is their Destiny work. For some individuals this will be a welcome challenge, for others a heavy burden. Nonetheless, responsibility will be the constant theme.
The Number 8 and Career
The challenge for Destiny 8 individuals is how to learn to lead and what kind of leadership style responds best to a situation or all situations. Destiny 8 people attract people who want to follow someone, who want or need another person to make the key decisions at work and when problems arise. Co-workers will turn to this person when a problem they cannot solve presents itself.
The Number 8 and Love
Destiny 8 people attract romantic partners trying to determine the 8’s level of success and ability to improve their success or take care of them. The romance can be egalitarian (both successful), complimentary (provider/nurturer), or parasitic (a burden on the provider). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of power.
Number 8 and Family
The parent or child that is an 8 will be viewed as a provider and leader within the family. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply defer to the Destiny 8 individual. This destiny works well if the individual wants leadership responsibility, but can be problematic if the child has the number and the parent does not.
Number 8 and Health
There will be a constant pressure to lead others regarding health issues. If a health question comes up around a Destiny 8, then everyone will turn to the 8 for the answer. It will not matter if the Destiny 8 individual is knowledgeable about health issues or not. If they are in the room when a health question comes up, people will naturally turn towards them.
Other Numbers and Their Importance
You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Destiny Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Destiny Number is a foundation number (along with the Life Path and Soul Purpose numbers).
Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.
How to Use Numerology in Your Life
Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the 3 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 3 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
