In numerology, the Subconscious Self number shows how you can use your natural talents and make the most out of opportunities you’re presented with in life, usually when you’re dealing with difficult situations or something new.
To get your Subconscious Self number, you check all of the numbers that are in your full birth name (including your middle name). Every letter in the alphabet corresponds to a number 1 - 9. Add together how many numbers are missing in your full birth name. Most people have at least 1 or 2 numbers missing in their birth name (these are your Karmic Lesson numbers). However many you’re missing, subtract from 9, and that’s your Subconscious Self number.
For example, if you’re missing numbers 3 and 8 in your name, you’re missing 2 numbers, so subtract 2 from 9, and your Subconscious Self number is 7. If you’re not missing any numbers, your Subconscious Self number is 9. Note that it isn’t possible to have a Subconscious Self number of 1 or 2 unless you only have a few letters in your name, so those aren’t included.
Subconscious Self Number 3
With Subconscious Self number 3, you want other people to help you with your problems, and you continue to have problems in your life until you learn to face your issues yourself. You can be overly emotional at times, trust the wrong people, and be unfocused. You need to have discipline, good judgment, and direction.
Subconscious Self Number 4
With Subconscious Self number 4, when confronted with the details, you submerge yourself fully within them and get completely lost. It makes it difficult for you to come to a decision, and vacillation can be a crippling problem. You need to be more grounded and trust in your ability to make decisions quickly and with confidence.
Subconscious Self Number 5
With Subconscious Self number 5, you can have a hard time dedicating yourself to anything, and are disorganized and undisciplined. Your escapist tendencies create more problems than they solve. You need to become more grounded, responsible, and find something that will give you some roots and tether you.
Subconscious Self Number 6
With Subconscious Self number 6, you give of yourself to everyone and don’t tend to your own needs. Your domestic life is your first priority. You want your family to help you when you’re having problems, but ultimately, you need to be the one taking responsibility for your actions.
Subconscious Self Number 7
With Subconscious Self number 7, you retreat into your mind when you have problems, and are emotionally distant when you’re upset. You can feel isolated and alone as a result. You need to learn to open up to others, and know that you have what it takes to weather any storm life sends your way.
Subconscious Self Number 8
With Subconscious Self number 8, you can get through anything life throws at you. You’re known as someone who can go through a trial and come out better than ever. You’re practical with problems, adjust to changes quickly, and don’t get stuck in negative patterns. You know what you must do in a crisis, and you handle it well.
Subconscious Self Number 9
With Subconscious Self number 9, you can have a hard time being open with your feelings, even if they do run deep. You’re not greatly affected by problems that come up in your life, and since you don’t have any Karmic Lesson numbers, you can maintain a calm throughout your life.
