## How to Calculate Your Name Number?

Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean. While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.

Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:

Pythagorean

 Q U I N C Y 8 3 9 5 3 7 = 35 = 8

Gematria

 Q U I N C Y 4 6 5 1 3 2 = 21 = 3

Chaldean

 Q U I N C Y 1 6 1 5 3 1 = 17 = 8

As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.

## What is the Destiny Number

The single digit number of your name reveals the energy you attract from others and the world. Knowing your Destiny Number helps you understand why people want you to play a certain role in life.

The Destiny number works in concert with the Life Path Number. When combined with the Life Path number you get the Soul Purpose Number.

Unlike the Life Path Number which drives the individual, the Destiny Number is the pulse of energy that turns people in their direction for a specific reason, related to the number meaning of that Destiny.

## The Number 9 as Your Destiny

The challenge for Destiny 9 individuals is overcoming the expectations others have for them to always sacrifice. The Destiny 9 person attracts the needy, people who sense that the Destiny 9 is vulnerable to emotional blackmail. Positively, Destiny 9 people also attract those who want to help but do not know how, which is something the 9 can show them.

### The Number 9 and Career

In work environments the destiny lesson involves setting boundaries as an employee, with co-workers, and employees. The tendency for people to see a Destiny 9 and always be there to help means that they can engage in personal interactions not appropriate for work environments. Destiny 9 individuals attract work situations where a broader perspective and comprehensive viewpoint helps.

### The Number 9 and Love

It is important for 9 individuals to guard their emotions when seeking romance. They do not need to be cut off from people but they must be wary of being too vulnerable. The Destiny lesson consistently puts people in the Destiny 9 life who want the lover to be a therapist, which rarely turns out well. Until this destiny number establishes solid boundaries, lovers will wander into emotional places better suited for another relationship type.

### Number 9 and Family

The parent or child that is a 9 is the emotional safe harbor for the family, which is fine when dealing with an adult, but not such a good experience for child. If you are parent of a Destiny 9 child, it will be important to guard them from others, since people instinctively open up to 9 individuals far too easily and too much.

### Number 9 and Health

In an odd twist, the health of a 9 can be positively or adversely affected by the health and well-being of the people around them. It will be more common for unhappy or stressed people to pour their worry and concerns into the chalice of the 9. There is a time and place for such giving and receiving, but without proper boundaries, it can happen all the time for the 9.

## Other Numbers and Their Importance

You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Destiny Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Destiny Number is a foundation number (along with the Life Path and Soul Purpose numbers).

Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.

## How to Use Numerology in Your Life

Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the 3 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 3 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
