## HOW DOES NUMEROLOGY WORK?
According to numerologists, everything in the world is based on mystical properties of numbers and every number has a frequency(vibration). These properties can tell more about someone’s behavior or predict whether romantic partners are compatible. The idea behind numerology believes that your name and your birth date affect your future life.
## NUMEROLOGY CHART OVERVIEW, HOW TO CALCULATE NAME NUMEROLOGY NUMBERS?
Numerology charts are great, you can learn a lot of cool things about yourself and we are going to show you something really interesting about yourself and your name. Let’s start with something called the **main name number**. Your name number is really about your outer nature, it’s about the personality that cloaks the inner you and it’s what you present to the world.
### WHAT IS MY DESTINY NUMBER?
Destiny number is the same number as your main name number, it is also called expression number, destiny number describes inner goals and opportunities available to you.
This is how to calculate the destiny number based on the chart below:
The chart is available here:
The top part of the chart has 1 through 9 and the bottom has all the letters of the alphabet. Each letter in the alphabet has a number now if you want to take out a pen and paper real quick we’re gonna do this together. I’m gonna show you an example first, and then we’re gonna do your name and you be surprised.
**Step1: Assign numbers to letters**, so we’re gonna take a girl’s named Sara Williams. Sara has S, A, R, A and if you check out the chart S is 1, A is 1, R is 9 and A is 1. Now her last name is Williams which is the 5, 9, 3, 3, 9, 1, 4, 1.
**Step2: We are going to add those number together.** So we’re gonna take that Sara which is: 1+1+9+1 = 12 and then Williams which is 5+9+3+3+9+1+4+1= 35 and put plus signs in between each of them and adds them all.
We come up with the number 12+ 35 = 47. The whole point here is to get down to a number that’s between 1 and 9. So you want to keep adding, we are going to repeat that with number 4 and 7 => 4+7=11. Number 11 is still not between 1 and 9 so we do that again: 1+1= 2. So Sara’s number is 2. Now you can use this method and do your own name. You can also use the name numerology calculator **below** to find out what’s your numerology number.
There is a lot of things we can tell you about your number. Things like the **energy of numbers**, a **color code**, numbers are corresponding to a specific color so once you understand the vibrational energy of the numbers you can choose to wear a certain color. Numbers in astrology are also related. However, this number is not as important as your **life path number.**
