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 7 as Your Destiny
These are the people others look to for spiritual guidance in any situation, regularly or in a crisis. Being seen as a priest or priestess is their Destiny. For some individuals this will be a welcome role, for others a heavy burden. Nonetheless, spirituality will be the constant theme.
The Number 7 and Career
The challenge for Destiny 7 individuals is how to learn to guide people through spiritual concerns and towards spiritual purpose regarding work and career. Destiny 7 people activate others working with them to want to know the mysteries of life, as well as the mystery of their individual lives. Co-workers will turn to this person when they have an existential crisis about work and career.
The Number 7 and Love
Destiny 7 people attract romantic partners trying to find their soul mate or twin flame, people who want love and romance to be a spiritual connection. The romance can be egalitarian (both spiritual), complimentary (spiritual/grounded), or very one-sided (authority/servant). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of spirit and purpose.
Number 7 and Family
The parent or child that is a 7 can will be viewed as the shaman of the family. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply look to the 7 as a the one that believes. This destiny works well if the individual wants to explore and share spiritual wisdom, but can be problematic if they simply want to figure out their own beliefs and purpose.
Number 7 and Health
There will be a constant pressure to help others with their spiritual health. If a health of the soul question comes up around a Destiny 7, then everyone will turn to the 7 for the answer. It will not matter if the Destiny 7 individual is knowledgeable about spiritual matters or not. If they are in the room when a soul wellness question arises, people will naturally look 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 7 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 7 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
