Autopsy # 9 Amy Winehouse

Amy Jade Winehouse

Date of Birth: 9-14-1983

Date of Death: 7-23-2011

Aged: 27

Cause of death: Alcohol Poisoning

Well, let’s just get the 9s out of the way first.

Her personal year is a 9, and her age at death (27) adds up to 9 as well. There.

So Amy Winehouse is the latest inductee into the infamous 27 club. I don’t think a lot of people are surprised.  So many young people in the public eye have died at this age over the decades, that I wonder how many ordinary people have also passed on at 27?  Are there temporal windows during which any of us can die? Age 5, age 27, age….?

A pattern emerged in Amy’s numerology chart consisting of 8s and 1s. Right away, I understood where her rebellion and issues with authority stemmed from (on a spiritual level).

Both 8 and 1 energies must assert themselves as being in control, in the lead, directing and delegating. Individuals with 8s and / or 1s in their makeup are fiercely independent, competitive, aggressive, as well as being creative, visionary, and natural leaders.

Amy was out there – on the fringe – her style, her voice, her music – undeniably her own and she paved the way for other singers like Adele, Duffy, Florence (And the Machine), and others.

She was a loose canon bent on self destruction, but at her core she longed to be grounded and rooted,  wanting to settle down and have children. It’s hard to picture – but that was her heart’s desire. Her Soul Undercurrent was a 4, and her Attainment number was a 6. These energies lend themselves to the nesting urge that Amy had displayed in this last year.

Her 9 personal year is of course, indicative of endings, and had the singer lived, 2012 would have been a time for Amy to reinvent herself, to start down a different path, and to receive fresh inspiration into her life. But this proved to be her final year.

Her cause of death is still pending, as her body was discovered only two days ago. She seemed a difficult personality to understand from afar. People close to her have stated that Winehouse was lovely, smart, funny, and more lucid than the general public and entertainment media believe.

Her public behavior was certainly enigmatic, and this may arise from the 7s in her chart. Her Soul Aspiration number is 7, which is the number of mysteries, dreams, the depths of the unknown. This is likely the ground from which her creative vision sprang. Her Destiny number is also 7, which says to me that the mysterious workings of life called to her, enticing her to look beneath the surface, to delve into the darker realm of consciousness. This may be one reason she abused drugs and alcohol, as a way to alter her consciousness.

She’s died in a personal 7 month as well. This autopsy will be updated as details about her death become available.

Autopsy # 8: Jimi Hendrix

Johnny Allen Hendrix – 11-27-1942

James Marshall Hendrix (changed by his father in 1945)

Died: 9-18-1970

Accidental Drug Overdose

A member of the infamous 27 club, Jimi Hendrix made an indelible mark on rock and roll music  in his brief but extraordinary career, before overdosing on sleeping pills after a night of drinking nothing but red wine.

I’ve just come to expect a 9 to show up somewhere when someone young leaves this world under tragic circumstances.

I suppose if they are young, this would make their death tragic, always. Anyway…

The number 9 shows up as Jimi’s Life Path number. It’s also the sum of  his birth day(27), the sum of his death day (18), the month of his death (9), the sum of his age when he died,  and he had swallowed 9 of the very potent Belgian sleeping pills.

As discussed in many of the profiles here at CNA, 9 is a force of destruction. People working with 9 Life Paths often struggle with loss from early childhood. Jimi’s life certainly fit this pattern. His father was stationed at Fort Sill in Oklahoma, so his mother was left to care for him and his siblings, two of whom were disabled and were placed in foster care. The Hendrix family suffered in abject poverty, and in 1951, his parents divorced. When he was 15, Jimi’s mother died from cirrhosis of the liver. These events created a shy, guarded young man. This is common for 9 Life Paths – a kind of closing around whatever life hasn’t taken away from them as a means of protection.

His personal year was a 1 when he died.  As a personal year, 1 energy presents an opportunity to start fresh and change direction. It is also a time of increased creativity, focus, and inspired action. Because 1 also represents the Self, its energy can feel isolating, and amplifies issues around one’s place in this world.

One of the universal struggles of the Self, is its relationship to its world. One of the lessons of 9 is that the individual is connected to all life, and that separation is an illusion. The number 2 is how we experience this connection in an intimate fashion with those closest to us: Parents, siblings, partners, and colleagues. Intimate here does not imply romantic or sexual, but rather  it measures the close proximity with which we relate to one another, and the deep karmic bonds that have entwined certain people to work and live closely at a given period during a lifetime.

The number 2 is an energy that appears often in Jimi’s chart. It is his Karmic Lesson in both calculations (Johnny Allen and James Marshall), it’s his first Pinnacle, and would have been his second challenge, and it’s the difference between both of his Destiny numbers (calculated for Johnny Allen: 5, for James Marshall: 7), and his Attainment numbers are also 5 (Johnny Allen) and7 (James Marshall).

Knowing this, it would seem that Jimi may have experienced some difficulty in understanding his relationship,  or just being in relationship to those around him. When one has experienced loss, especially as a child, there is a reluctance to become attached to someone they may lose. There is also a need to acquire, the attempt to hoard, fill space, accumulate, and store up. Jimi’s reputation as a womanizer may have been symptomatic of this impulse.

He spent a lot of time alone, he preferred solitude say those who knew him best. He was engaging, generous, intelligent, and very funny when he was in a social gathering. But he was most comfortable alone with his own thoughts. Trust may have been an issue, and fear of the unknown, reluctance to fail in front of others (7), so it’s just easier to have kept to himself.

His main challenge was a 5, the number concerned with freedom, movement, and the appetites. No doubt, the observable ingredients in his death were textbook  ‘dark side of 5′  hallmarks: over consumption of wine and pills, in league with the less visible but irresistible pull of 9 – dragging the self back to oblivion.
