Your soul urge number represents your inner desire, something that you strive to fulfill. Despite other things you may become involved in out of circumstance, duty, or convenience, your soul urge is your inner motivation. Ultimately, this is what you want out of life, and it’s why you do the things you do.
Unlike your life path number, which shows new lessons in this life, the soul urge number contains past life gifts and tells more about your inner “essence.” This number will feel close to your heart, and it may be an aspect of your personality that others do not see at first, or only those close to you understand how much this number means to you. The soul number is most closely connected to past lives and what you have already developed, so this aspect of your personality feels quite natural to you. Sometimes, to your frustration, your life path number may pull you away from this number if they are not compatible.
With 1 as your soul urge, you work towards total freedom; to act on your own and live an independent life. You are capable of speaking your mind, even if it doesn’t sit well with others. Your soul demands living in a way that is authentic and true to your beliefs. Others learn from you how to be real and boldly individualistic.
There is a strong inner desire to be on top, and you may feel entitled to being on top due to past life memories. You are motivated to work hard so you can call your own shots and initiate any pursuit that strikes your fancy. Success, acknowledgment, or cutting a trail for others are other driving motivations. Living a life where you are dependent on others or not recognized for your abilities would make you miserable.
At your best, you are ambitious, determined, self-enterprising, loyal, honest, and righteous.
If you are unable to use your natural abilities or have a poor sense of self, your negative traits are impatience, headstrong, bossy, or egotistical.
