The arithmancy of our birth names is the process in numerology of assigning a numeric calculation value to each letter of the alphabet. Our birth certificate names are as important as our birth dates. We decode the specific meanings within our names through the dynamic process of arithmancy.
Some people think that because our birth dates and birth names are chosen for us—as in planned cesarean births and the names that generally our parents settle on—there may not be anything sacred about these them, but the ancients believe that nothing is random.
Meaning of the Consonants in Our Names
The personality or expression number is the arithmancy of the consonants in one’s birth certificate name. Our expressions define how we bring the heart’s desire into manifestation in the material world. The vowels maintain the fluidity of our names, and the consonants are the forms by which the vowels are expressed.
The personalities are like the clothes we wear; they protect us, define us, or both. Personas are complements to the inner aspects of our selves. They portray our personal style and behaviors and how we imagine and present ourselves to the world on both the conscious and the unconscious levels.
Our expressions describe learned behaviors and how we use them to express our essential selves. Our personas are built from experience, which is feedback the universe gives us about our choices, feelings, thoughts, words, and actions. This is especially important in the analysis of how present we are in the process of creating our destinies.
Our heart’s desire numbers are the essences of our true selves, and our personality numbers are the frequencies at which we choose the world to view us. These are our full expressions of being humans in the physical form. They are how we protect, express, and manifest our .
Once we understand the essences of these frequencies, we appreciate the magic and source of power used to influence the outside world and evaluate the gifts and talents used when expressing our creativity.
The personality or expression number is the initial vibration that people, animals, environments, plants, and spirits pick up from us organically. It is the base energy they use to psychically tell whether we are authentic about who we are, what we are doing, and our true intentions. If we are not in alignment with these frequencies, they will sense it, and something will just feel off.
These are our energetic personality blueprints, and when we are in integrity with the vibrations we emit, our auras strengthen, expand, and become brighter. People, animals, and the environment around us will feel invited, interested, and attracted. They will trust, feel safe around, and open up to us naturally.
CALCULATING YOUR EXPRESSION NUMBER
The Expression number is the sum total of the consonants in a name. Reduce the total to a single digit unless it is a Master Number. Use the arithmancy conversion chart below. The letter Y is used as a consonant except when it is the first letter in a person’s first or last name, such as Yolanda, Yvon, or Yvette. The letter Y is considered a vowel if there are no other vowels in the name, such as Bly or Flynn.

EXPRESSION NUMBER 5
Number Fives are all about their freedom, independence, and the right to follow where the heart and will lead them in life. They are quintessential adventurers and express themselves best through the movement of energy. They have a desire to travel, experience as many different life situations and styles as possible, and are extremely adaptable because of it. They are quick-minded, have good memories, and retain information in large quantities.
You see nature as the ultimate teacher in life and stay connected to the four elements (earth, air, water, and fire). You are not materialistic because you do not like anything to weigh you down. Because of your love to travel and collect information and knowledge, I refer to this number as the “busy bee.” You travel from flower to flower, spreading pollen (knowledge) for the greater good of the elemental forces (humankind).
This number can be extremely social and can hold stimulating conversations at any event where they present themselves. They tend to dress fashionably and look fabulous in bright colors. Because they are upbeat and optimistic, their charismatic personalities make them popular and draw others from any social arena.
Your expression is one of movement—physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. You are always on the go and most likely helping other people. You are a channel and have been known to grasp higher wisdom right out of the air. If you accept your drive for action and find ways to strengthen yourself, the accumulation of leadership, balance, expression, and endurance will add to your healing source and power.
You are often blessed with numerous talents and abilities and have the potential to sustain a couple of careers at once. Number five individuals have the ability to adapt and change freely, as they are free spirits who have a sense of adventure and curiosity about life. They have the desire to expand their horizons and gain insights into the lifestyles of other cultures, as they have a talent for finding a common ground with nearly everyone they meet and are easy-going.
