In numerology, the soul urge number is a numerical representation of our heart’s deepest desires.

It reflects our core needs and urges, deep below the conscious mind.

We can use this soul urge number to discover our compatibility with a prospective partner and gain some insight in to the likelihood of a relationship with that person being successful.

We might want to check our soul urge number compatibility with prospective partners, but we might also want to check it with our current partner to see if there is a numerological explanation for any problems – and thereby garner more information to deal with those problems.

But most people do not know how to calculate the soul urge number or check compatibility between soul urge numbers. Luckily, we have put together a short guide in order to help you to do that.

Step One

First, we take the vowels from our first and last names. For example, the name Jennifer Example would reduce down to EIEEAE. Her love interest, Dennis Random, would reduce his name down to EIAO.


  • jEnnIfEr ExAmplE = EIEEAE.
  • dEnnIs rAndOm = EIAO.


Step Two

Next, we take these reduced names and look up their numerological value. The vowels are valued as follows:


  • A = 1.
  • E = 5.
  • I = 9.
  • O = 6.
  • U = 3.

We can now sum those up for each name and get two value. For Jennifer Example, that would be 30. For Dennis Random, that would be 21.


  • EIEEAE = 5 + 9 + 5 + 5 + 1 + 5 = 30.
  • EIAO = 5 + 9 + 1 + 6 = 21.


Step Three

Next, we reduce these numbers to single digits. We do this by summing each constituent number of the values calculated above. For Jennifer Example, that would 3. For Dennis Random, that would also be 3.


  • 30 = 3 + 0 = 3.
  • 21 = 2 + 1 = 3.


These are the soul urge numbers.


Step Four

Now that we have the soul urge numbers of both partners, we can check their compatibility.

The table above shows the compatibility scores between different soul urge numbers.

Both Jennifer Example and Dennis Random have a soul urge number of 3, so we look up 3 on the left hand side and 3 across the top and find where they intersect.

We can see from the table that Jennifer and Dennis have a soul urge number compatibility score of 65%.

And The Rest Is Up To You

This score is only a guide of how well your deepest desires match with a partner’s deepest desires.

While it is a useful representation of the ease with which two people will be able to achieve their goals together, it is not a score that should be solely determinative of who you enter in to a relationship with.

Use this score wisely and consider all the factors before making any decisions. This score may be a powerful tool in your belt, but we should utilise all of our tools before we declare the job done.
