How Changing Your Name Affects Your Numerology

Numerology Psychic
What’s in a name?

Shakespeare once wrote, “Oh what’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.” But according to numerology, a change in name changes your energy.

If you are considering a change of name, talk to a numerologist about it. It can make your numbers either more harmonious or more discordant.

People change their names for a many of reasons. It’s traditional for women to take on the last names of their husbands. However, many modern couples are reversing genders or combining names. People transitioning often take new names. It’s also common to take a stage name if you have a career in performing arts.

These are all great reasons to see a numerologist for a psychic reading.

Energetically, What’s In A Name?

Have you ever wondered why some psychics ask for your name and birthday? That’s because they use that information to calculate your numerology numbers.

Your life path number and birthday number will stay the same if you change your name. These numbers are calculated using your birthday.

However, your full name is used to calculate three important numbers:

  • Destiny Number

Your destiny number is calculated using all of the letters in your name. Your Destiny Number says a lot about the overall qualities of your character and your natural talents.

Your Destiny Number differs from your Life Path number, which is determined by your birthday. Your Life Path number talks about your higher purpose. Your Destiny Number talks more about your natural traits. So while your Life Path number gives you information about what to do, your Destiny Number tells you how to do it.

  • Soul Urge Number

The soul urge number is found by adding up all the vowels in your name. If your name contains the letter “y,” it’s important to determine whether it’s being used as a consonant or a vowel. For example, in the name “Tracey,” the “y” makes an “ee” sound, so counts it as a vowel. In the name “Yaker,” it should be counted as a consonant.

The Soul Urge number expresses the nature of your heart’s desire. It speaks to what you really want out of life. Your inner ideal and what will ultimately make you happy can be found in your SOul Urge number.

  • Personality Number

Your Personality Number is calculated using all the consonants in your name. Again, if your name has a “y,” determine whether it’s a vowel or a consonant.

Your Personality Number is a lot like your rising sign in your birth chart, it tells you a lot about how you come across to others. If your personality number doesn’t mesh well with your other numbers, it can take awhile for people to really get to know you.

Why You Should Consult a Psychic Before a Name Change

If you are considering a name change, it’s best to talk to a psychic first. The biggest thing you’ll want to consider is whether this name change will create more harmonious or discordant numbers.

For example, let’s say you’re getting married and considering whether or not you want to take your husband's last name. This is a great time to talk to a numerologist. Love psychics can look at the difference in names and tell you whether the new name will line up better with your Life Path number, or if it will lead you off-course.

If you are a person considering transition, this is an excellent opportunity. A psychic reading can help you decide which name will help you embody the energy you see in yourself. If you don’t know what new name to choose, a psychic can look into your energy and help find a name that suits your correct gender.

For those who adopt stage names, you’ll want to check that the Personality Number matches up with the persona you want fans to see. For example, famous rock star Johnny Rotten’s Personality Number is 1: a perfect fit for one of the very first punk rockers.

In Conclusion

If you are thinking about changing your name, talk to a psychic first. You want your name to be in harmony with your Life Path number.

A psychic can also tell you whether this new name reflects your true self, or if you’ll be energetically swallowed by false identity. A psychic can also talk to you about the differences in your given name and nicknames.

There’s a lot in a name, so don’t go changing it willy-nilly. Ask a psychic to make sure your name change is harmonious with your current energy.
