## Calculation the soul urge is derived by finding the sum

OF THE NUMBER VALUES OF THE VOWELS IN EACH NAME, REDUCING THIS SUM TO A SINGLE DIGIT OR MASTER NUMBER, THEN ADDING THE SUMS OF ALL THE NAMES TOGETHER AND REDUCING THAT TOTAL TO A SINGLE DIGIT OR MASTER NUMBER.

There is at least one vowel in every syllable.

A, E, I, O, U are always vowels. Their value, from the table on page 18, is:

Y is sometimes a vowel. Its value is 7. Y is a vowel when there is no other vowel in a syllable.

Example: Yvonne, Sylvia, Larry

Y is a vowel when it is preceded by A, E, I, O, U and sounded as one sound.

Example: Hayden, Doyle, Raymond

W is sometimes a vowel. Its value is 5. W is a vowel when it is preceded by A, E, I, O, U and sounded as one sound.

1. Place the numerical value of each vowel above the vowel:

ARTHUR TRENT WILSON

2. Add the numbers in each name together. Reduce this sum to a single digit or master number.

ARTHUR 1+3=4

3. Add the numbers obtained for each name together. Reduce this sum to a single digit or master number.

4. On a numerology chart, the calculation would look like this: (The number in parentheses represents a subtotal which is further reduced.)

ARTHUR TRENT WILSON

Here are a few additional examples:

(16) 7 + 11 + 8 = 26 = 8 Soul Urge 6 5 5 1 91 3 5 LOWELL ADRIAN HUNTER

(14) 5 + (17) 8 + 9 =22 Soul Urge 16 7 7 91 63 CAROLYN^ SYLVIA YOUNG

Always add the numbers of the vowels of each name separately, then add these totals together. If you add the vowels of all the names together, you may end up with a master number that doesn't apply or lose a master number that should apply. For instance, in the name Carolyn Sylvia Young above, if the vowels are added together, you get 1 + 6 + 7 + 7 + 9 + 1 + 6 + 3 = 40 = 4 Soul Urge, and the 22 Master Number has been lost.

chart 4: the soul urge, on page 264, discusses the different Chart 4: The Soul Urges. Soul Urge

The upper horizontal division of this chart, labeled "Motives," describes the person's inner motivation. The middle and lower divisions of the chart, labeled "Positive Attitudes" and "Negative Attitudes," describe the most harmonious and most discordant extremes of the attitudes just as Chart 3 did for the Expression.

Sample The reading of the Soul Urge without any additional infor-reading mation provides some awareness of the person's inner motivation. The information is accurate, as far as it goes, but must be expressed to allow for the modifications which will take place when the synthesis of the core elements proceeds.

A sample reading might read as follows: You are apt to want __

You are probably but you can also be

information.

Fill in with "Positive Attitudes" information.

Fill in with "Negative Attitudes" information.

The motivations and attitudes described by the Soul Urge derived from your birthname are with you all your life. When a person changes his name, the primary motivations and attitudes remain, but are often modified by new and different emphases derived from the Soul Urge of the new name. (We'll discuss the effect of name changes in Volume 2, Chapter 24.)
