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- unless 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 reduces 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 reduces to 6. Add them together and 3 + 6 + 6 or 15, which reduces to 6. Jane Doe Smith's Destiny Number would be 6.
For those that have a Destiny Number of 8, their life will be dedicated to achieving financial success, occupational respect and moving up the ladder until they are the top dog. They are extremely ambitions and driven by their long list of goals. A great leader, they can initiate, plan and see projects through to the end with a determined and dependable nature. They especially excel in responsibilities that involve organization or administration. The business and government sectors are where this superstar can truly shine.
They will have material and financial rewards come to them. Their ability to manage money will allow for a great accumulation of wealth. Excellent judges of character, they can use this strength in their business endeavors. They approach all tasks with a realistic practicality. Blessed with a great deal of energy, they are ready to run as soon as the gates are opened. And they'll never doubt their ability to finish the race.
Negative attributes that can be associated with this number include stubbornness and rigidity. They can push their ambition too far, take on too many projects and become frustrated with the lack of progress they make on what is nearly an impossible task. They can be perfectionists and demanding of that quality of behavior in those around them. Their want of power and status can become a negative when overindulged. It is important for them to step back and take stock of what is really important from time to time.
