Numerology Number Chart Explained

What is the Number Chart

Firstly, the main purpose of numerology is to help you gain a better understanding of yourself now and in the future. The only complexity associated with numerology is differentiating where a number in the chart applies and what it says regarding your life.

In a chart, you will realize you have 4 or 5 key numbers, and a host of other numbers that are equally important, and this results in numerical soup or rather an alphabet soup, which is a hotchpotch of numbers that could preach to anyone.

That being said, there are sure ways to create and interpret a numerology chart, and that is the key purpose of this article, to make it easy for you to read and understand your numerology chart.

Creating the Name Numerology Chart

Attention to Detail

You must be careful when creating a chart in numerology with keen attention to detail. There is a lot of mathematics involved, and even though a lot of the math is simple, a simple error could result in a wrong number, and this will compromise the entire chart.

Numbers Remain the Same

While creating your numerology chart, you will realize how easy it is to understand numerology. The whole concept of numerology is that names are encrypted into numbers and because digits possess the same meaning regardless of where they are found, it would be easy to interpret the number easily.

Single versus Compound

Numerology works mainly with single digits from 1 to 9. Compound numbers include 11,22,33 and 44 and cannot be changed. Digits bigger than 9 that does not belong in the compound number ground must be reduced.

Correct Name Usage

As for names to be used in the chart, use the present signature and the birth certificate. The full birth name is the fundamental of the chart and It reveals how you existed to use your present signature. So, write the two names and fill the blacks while referring to the following chart.


Now, let us do some calculations. For instance, if the name is John Rayan the calculations will look like this

John: 1 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2

Rayan: 9 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 5 = 23 = 2 + 3 = 5

Next, sum up 2 and 5 to get 7.

This is the number for this name. keep in mind, if you get 11, 22, 33, or 44, then you should leave it at that.

So, what do the numbers say?

Now that we know the basic numbers in our chart, the next step is to fill in the blanks.

What Do The Numbers Mean

Heart’s Desire

Firstly, each vowel must be assigned a number. Keep in mind Y can be a vowel if no other vowel is present.  The next step is to add your vowels. Add each name individually and start to reduce.

Next, sum up the names and reduce them to get the final number.

Do the same thing with the present signature. Once you are done, you will have arrived at your heart’s desire number to tell you what is at the core of your name and it shows where your heart is and where you are happy.

Personality Number

Each consonant must be assigned to the right number to arrive at the personality number.

Next, sum up the consonants of each name individuals, reduce, and sum them up, and reduce them again.
