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 3 as Your Destiny
These are the people others look to for creativity, vision, and imagination, regularly or in a crisis. Being seen as “the creative one” is their Destiny. For some individuals this will be a welcome role, for others a constant source of “prove yourself” anxiety and insecurity. Nonetheless, creation will be the recurring theme.
The Number 3 and Career
The challenge for Destiny 3 individuals is how to learn to resist being dismissed for not being practical enough. Destiny 3 people become the social planners and networkers in the work environment because fellow employees and their employer perceive them as the creative and playful ones. Co-workers will turn to this person when they want to get something fun out of the work day.
The Number 3 and Love
Destiny 3 people attract romantic partners who love artistic expression through someone else’s talent. The romance can be egalitarian (band members), complimentary (a painter and his/her lover business partner), or very disadvantageous (a singer and his/her lover stealing creative ideas). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of creation.
Number 3 and Family
The parent or child that is a 3 will be viewed as the “talent” of the family. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply look at the 3 and believe they are the “artistic” one. This destiny works well if the individual wants to grow through creativity and specialized talent, but can be problematic if they would rather be consistent and steadfast in what they do and how they behave.
Number 3 and Health
There will be a constant pressure to be the one that does not need to worry about health so long as he or she does her art or performs his talent at the highest level. If a question about health comes up around a Destiny 3, then everyone who turns to the 3 will expect them to talk about their art and talent. It will not matter if the Destiny 3 individual wants to or not. If they are in the room when the topic of health comes, most likely everyone will still end up back discussing the art and talent.
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.
