## 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.3

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

Pythagorean

Gematria

Chaldean

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 2 as Your Destiny

These are the people others look to for relationship advice, an actual relationship, and partnership, regularly or in a crisis. Being seen as “the other half” is their Destiny. For some individuals this will be a welcome role, for others a constant source of “never being left alone”. Nonetheless, partnership will be the recurring theme.

### The Number 2 and Career

The challenge for Destiny 2 individuals is how to learn to resist co-dependent or deficit relationships. Destiny 2 people can be the target of the single people in a job, looking for the right partner and thinking work is a dating site, as much as it is a place to earn a living. Co-workers will turn to this person when they want to relate.

## The Number 2 and Love

Destiny 2 people attract romantic partners who love to be in a relationship, for good or ill, but no matter what. The romance can be egalitarian (we share equally), complimentary (your best in something supports my best in something), or very volatile (I am always doing more for this relationship than you!). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of relationship.

## Number 2 and Family

The parent or child that is a 2 will be viewed as the peacekeeper of the family. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply look at the 2 and believe they can resolve any and all disputes. This destiny works well if the individual wants to grow through relationship psychology and dynamics, but can be problematic if they would rather be doing or working on their own issues, separately.

### Number 2 and Health

There will be a constant pressure to be the one that takes care of the other person who is sick. If a question about health comes up around a Destiny 2, then everyone who turns to the 2 will expect them to talk about how to help someone dealing with the topic at hand. It will not matter if the Destiny 2 individual knows the issue or information. If they are in the room when everyone wants to discuss illness or health care, people will naturally want to hear the Destiny 2 thoughts.

## 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 2 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 2 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
