Numerology is the scientific study of numbers and how they impact our lives. A numerology chart is used to decide if and when to make major life decisions or act.

There are some numbers in numerology that are more influential on your life than others. Those are your core numbers.

These five numbers are taken from your birth date or birth name and are central to who you are. Some are calculated using the month, day, and year you were born, while others use your name.

The five core numbers are your Life Path Number, your Birthday Number, your Expression Number, your Personality Number, and your Soul Urge Number.


Although your Psychic Number is not considered one of the core numbers, it is still an important number in understanding yourself and your motivations.

What is a Psychic Number?

Your Psychic Number in numerology is what defines your character. It is sometimes called the Driver Number or Mulaank, and tells how you see yourself.

The Psychic Number affects your desires and expectations from life. It calls attention to the way you think, act, and view the world.

How to Calculate Your Psychic Number

Your Psychic Number can be calculated by adding the digits from the day of the month you were born to come up with a single-digit number.

For instance, if you were born on March 16, 1983, you would only use the day to calculate:


1 + 6 = 7

In this instance, the Psychic Number is 7, but there are cases where the Psychic Number initially returns as a double-digit number, in which case it needs to be further broken down to a single digit.

For example, a person whose date of birth is January 29, 2000, would calculate their Psychic Number as follows:

2 + 9 = 11

Since the total sum is a two-digit number, you would need to reduce it to one digit by adding those two numbers together:

1 + 1 = 2

The final Psychic Number is 2. No further calculation is needed.
