Birth Name: Layne Thomas Staley 8-22-1967
Date of Death: 4-5-2002
7 – Personal Year at Death, Personal Day at Death, Age at Death, Attainment
The number 7 seems to cast a creepy shadow in Layne’s short life. Staley was the original singer for Alice in Chains, and while other numbers in his chart are energies concerned with accomplishment and success, 7′s isolating force looms. It was his attainment number, and his age when he died, 34, adds up to a 7, his personal year was a 7 the year he died, and his personal day on April 5, 2002 was a 7.
Layne had struggled with heroin addiction for some years, and finally died of an overdose in his Seattle home in April of 2002. Over the years, his drug use had ravaged his body, and he had become emaciated, lost his teeth, and he sensed that he had reached his physical limit shortly before his death, confessing in a phone interview that he knew he was near death.
He had an 8 life path and an 8 destiny, and a 22 birthday – pretty ambitious and driven energy. He also had an artists soul with 6, 3, and 1—all creative numbers. His intensity was a 1, which may explain his tendency to be a loner, and mysterious.
He was just 3 years short of entering his third pinnancle/challenge, which was his main pinnacle and challenge that being a 3 – the artist. His life ended while he was in a 9 pinnacle and a 1 challenge. Interestingly, 1 was his intensity, and 9 was his karmic lesson.
