What is the Heart’s Desire Number in Numerology?

The Heart’s Desire Number is derived from the vowels in your name. This personal numerology number reveals your inner passion and desire. The goal here is to connect to you what is greatest within your heart. This has influence on your career, life partner, life style and possible even where you decide to live.

How Do I Calculate the Heart’s Desire Number in Numerology?

To calculate the Heart’s Desire Number you will use the vowels in your name. The vowels are the letter A, E, I, O and U. Now there are cases in numerology when the letter Y is considered a vowel. If the letter Y is used as vowel in one’s name then numerology considers it a vowel. Here is such an example, the name Lynn uses the letter Y as a vowel. Also if the letter Y produces a separate sound as with names Mary and Betty, Here the Y gives the name completely different preconception. If you remove the Y you Mar and Bett. Example where the letter is not considered a vowel is with the names Chumley or Bradley. In this case the Y is just an extension of the letter vowel E, yes it does change the way we pronounce the name but the E is the vowel here.

We begin calculating the Heart’s Desire Number by adding the numerical value of the just the vowels. This is similar to calculating the Expression Number except you only focus on the vowels. We will refer to the same chart as we did with the Expression Number.

A = 1

J = 1

S = 1

B = 2

K = 2

T = 2

C = 3

L = 3

U = 3

D = 4

M = 4

V = 4

E = 5

N = 5

W = 5

F = 6

O = 6

X = 6

G = 7

P = 7

Y = 7

H= 8

Q = 8

Z = 8

I = 9

R = 9


The Heart’s Desire Number is calculated from a person full birth name. This may be different than the name a person currently goes by. Use the name that appears on your birth certificate.

We will use President Obama’s full birth name which is Barack Hussein Obama

 First we pull out all the vowels in the President’s name which are A A U E I O A A

Then we assign a numeric value to the vowels as suggested by the chart above.

1 + 1 + 3 + 5 + 9 + 8 + 1 + 1 = 29 now reduces as 2 + 9 = 11

We now have the number 11 and do not need to reduce any further since 11 along with 22 is a master number.

We have determined that President Obama’s Heart Desire Number is 11.
