The Destiny Number in a numerology chart is calculated using a person’s full birth name. This is the full name that appears on their birth certificate- except they were adopted shortly after birth and their name was changed. In that case, the new name can be used. Write out the full name with space below the letters to write the number that corresponds to each. A, J and S are represented by the number 1. B, K and T are represented by the number 2. C, L and U are the number 3. D, M, and V are the number 4. E, N and W are 5. F, O and X are 6. G, P and Y are 7. H, Q and Z are 8. I and R are 9.
In order to calculate the Destiny Number, add the numbers together for each part of the name, reduce the total if it is not between 1 and 9 (or 11 or 22, the master numbers). Then add the reduced results from each part of the name together and reduce again if necessary. For the name Jane Doe Smith, you would start with Jane- which would be 1 + 1 + 5 + 5 or 12, which decreases to 3. Doe would be 4 + 6 + 5 or 15, which reduces to 6. Smith would be 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 or 24, which brings to 6. Add them together and 3 + 6 + 6 or 15, which reduces to 6. Jane Doe Smith’s Destiny Number would be 6.
Those who have a Destiny Number of 9, their lives will be governed by compassion, benevolence and an understanding of the world. There is a deep understanding of the needs of others and a desire to help in any way possible-often through mentoring, since they people tend to be inspirational. Professions that well suit these individuals include medicine, religion, diplomacy, law and advice.
Their sensitivity towards others makes them a great friend and lover- full of affection, sympathy, tolerance, compassion and understanding. They will need these relationships around them to thrive. Ambitions will be expressed in terms of the greater good. These people would never be described as cutthroat. It is likely that material holdings and monetary wealth will not matter much to this person, unless they are used in a way that is of benefit to others. They are comfortable living modestly and are made uncomfortable by lavish or luxurious things.
Negative aspects of a Destiny Number of 9 include selfishness that can come out if they do not follow their destiny to help others. If they miss their path, it is likely they will become isolated from others, lack sensitivity and disengage from the world around them. It is important not to let early setbacks sway this person from their calling or destiny. Destiny can be subverted but it is still there, under the covers, and its presence will nag at the person who is not listening to it.
