# Numerology’s Soul Urge And Where You Live – Cities Have Motivation Numbers Too

Ever notice how some cities have a life of their own, a flavor which suits you or not, depending on what you seek in life? Numerologist know that cities, states, even countries have a Soul number all their own. And to enjoy living there, your Soul / Motivation number needs to be compatible with that place.

The Soul number in Numerology has many names: Motivation number, Soul Urge, Ambition, and Heart’s Desire to name a few. This number shows us what your desire from Life; what your dreams are. This value can change through out our lives, because it’s dependent on the name we use.

Your Motivation or Soul Urge number is calculated by summing the numeric values of the vowels in your name, and then reducing to a single digit with fadic addition. The following chart gives the number values for each of the vowel letters:

A = (1), E = (5), I = (9), O = (6), U = (3), and Y = (7)

Note that ‘Y’ is only used if a name has no other vowels present in a word; otherwise it is ignored.

To be compatible in numerology, two values need to both be either odd, or even numbers. When one value is even, and the other is an odd number, then disharmony can result. The ideal combination is when two values are identical, such that they reinforce each other.

Actress Jessica Alba lives and works in Los Angeles, California. The Soul Urge / Motivation number calculation for each of these names is shown below:

Jessica Alba = EIAAA = 5 + 9 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 17 = 1 + 7 = (8)

Los Angeles = OAEE = 6 + 1 + 5 + 5 = 17 = 1 + 7 = (8)

California = AIOIA = 1 + 9 + 6 + 9 + 1 = 26 = 2 + 6 = (8)

So the actress, city, and state all have identical Soul Urge numbers of (8). This means that both the woman, and the place have highly competitive spirits and desires. A fitting motivation for the home of Hollywood.
