You’ve heard of horoscopes and astrology, but do you know about Tantric Numerology?
This fascinating study of numbers is used to give clarity to your life’s purpose, your obstacles, and your inherent skills. It’s a powerful and accurate way to gain insight into your karmic lessons and blocks, the gifts you can manifest in this lifetime, your destiny, and your best path forward.
Before we dive into the study of Tantric Numerology, it’s worth drawing a comparison between astrology, horoscopes, and numerology.
- Astrology is the study of the stars and planets, drawing connections between their movement and human affairs.
- A horoscope is an astrological forecast of your future based on this information, including the time, date, and location of your birth.
- Numerology is the study of numbers based on the belief that there are divine vibrations in numbers and patterns and connections between numbers and earthly affairs.
Numerology and astrology are both systems to offer you greater insight into your experience on earth. Within numerology there are many different schools of thought on how to use the numbers. Tantric Numerology is a system from ancient times, taught and passed down by a master, called a Mahan Tantric, to students. It has a close relationship with Kundalini Yoga, and you will often find Tantric Numerology offerings in the Kundalini Yoga communities.
Tantric numerology doesn’t provide an answer to each and every situation but instead gives you a roadmap to your soul and offers you an elegant tool to gain a deeper understanding of your Higher Self.
Here is everything you need to know to get started with Tantric Numerology.
Meaning Through Numbers
To clear up any misconceptions, the word “tantra” in this system has nothing to do with sex. “Tantra” is a Sanskrit word that means “to weave.” This form of numerology seeks patterns around specific dates or periods (like your birth or a specific month in the year) to help provide insight and guidance relating to your soul’s path or other questions relating to the timing of your life.
Tantric Numerology, also known as Akhara Numerology, includes the core concept that your unique soul’s journey includes your mental, physical, and spiritual aspects. These aspects map to eleven energetic bodies.
The Numbers of Tantric Numerology
Tantric Numerology uses numbers 1 through 11 for specific calculations regarding important dates in your life. These numbers represent energetic bodies recognized in various healing modalities, including the system of Kundalini Yoga.
These energetic bodies are similar but distinct from the chakra system as they are more esoteric in nature. The eleven numbers used in Tantric Numerology include:
Number 1 Maps to the Soul Body: the unchanging, non-reactive core of your consciousness. This is core essence.
Number 2 Maps to the Negative Mind: The protective function of the mind designed to sense danger and warn us about threats to our security.
Number 3 Maps to Positive Mind: The expansive, positive function of the mind designed to show us the best-case scenario in any situation.
Number 4 Maps to Neutral Mind: The balanced, objective function of the mind that takes input from both the negative and positive mind.
Number 5 Maps to Physical Body: Our physical manifestation on earth. This manifestation is influenced by lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, rest and play.
Number 6 Maps to the Arcline: The energy field that arches from ear to ear, transmitting intuitive awareness and acting as an antenna of consciousness.
Number 7 Maps to the Aura: The extended energy field that surrounds every living being acting as a protective force.
Number 8 Maps to the Pranic Body: A subtle energy layer that changes pranic energy into life force energy. It manifests as fearlessness, youthfulness, healing power, and an innate innocence.
Number 9 Maps to the Subtle Body: The subtle sensitivity of communication with others and with the environment. This energetic body allows you to read the unspoken undercurrents in a situation.
Number 10 Maps to the Radiant Body: Your projection and the quality of your natural charisma. This energetic body manifests as your radiance and powerful, graceful presence.
Number 11 Maps to Mastery: This body encompasses the bodies above and represents the integration of all ten of these energetic bodies.
These eleven numbers are the foundation of Tantric Numerology. Read on to learn how to apply them in your life.
Learn Your Tantric Own Numerology
You can use your birth date to calculate your own tantric numerology reading, including five distinct aspects: your soul number, your karma number, your destiny, your path and your gifts.
The Soul number is the essence of yourself and your identity. It gives you clues to your soul’s purpose and points to your path to access your creativity, depth, and potential. Use the soul number to recognize your internal conflict, to see your inner work to attain balance, and to highlight your manifested gifts when you are fully integrated.
The Soul number is calculated by the sum of the days of your birth. Example: If you are born on the 11th day of the month, 1+1=2 so 2 is your soul number.
The Karma/Mastery number describes your blocks, obstacles, and the things you must break through in order to be successful in life and in your relationships with others. Your karma number points to a lesson you need to master.
The Karma/Mastery number is calculated by the sum of the month of your birth’s numbers. Example: If you were born in December, 1+2=3 so 3 is your Karma/Mastery number.
The Gift number points to your innate abilities, skills and talents. These are things that come naturally to you. Your job is to identify and accept them.
The Gift number is calculated by the sum of the decade in which you were born (last two digits of the year). Example: If you were born in 1985, you calculate your gift number as follows 8+5=13, 1+3=4, so your gift number is 4.
The Destiny number, also known as the Knowledge number, points to traits or lessons you have worked on for many lifetimes and that you have mastered through hard work, personal sacrifice, and dedicated effort. This number also gives you a clue about how others see you.
The Destiny numberis calculated as the sum of all four digits of the year. Example: If you were born in 1985, your destiny number is calculated as follows: 1+9+8+5=23, 2+3=5, so your destiny number is 5.
The Path number points to what you need to do to live a fulfilled life. It offers a deeper understanding of your “mission” during this lifetime and describes traits you should manifest in your life. If you feel something is missing or you are stuck in your life, your path number can give you valuable clues.
The Path number is calculated as a sum of all the numbers in your birth date (month+day+year). Example: If you were born May 1, 1985, your path number is calculated as follows 5+1+1+9+8+5=29, 2+9=11, so your path number is 11.

Tantric Numerology can be used for your own path, as outlined above, or for bigger questions like “what will 2022 hold for me?” or “what are the energetic themes for me to pay attention to this month?” It can also be used for general readings, such as the numerology forecast for January 2022.
For your own path, online calculators are available to get you started, but if you have specific questions or want a more sophisticated reading, you can find a numerology specialist.
