Autopsy # 10: Prince

 

Prince Rogers Nelson
Date of Birth: 6-07-1958
Date of Death: 4-21-2016
Age 57
Cause of Death: Fentanyl Overdose

As of this writing, Prince’s cause of death has not become public record, but I don’t believe it will make a difference for the purposes of this post, because there are so many fascinating occurrences in his numerology work up.

I wasn’t surprised to find 9 factoring in some key places in Prince’s chart. It’s his Life Path, his Soul number, and there are four 9s in his name, so this energy has wielded a strong influence in the enigmatic performer’s life.

Altruism, selflessness, impassioned artistry, sensitivity–these are 9 qualities which have been  evident in Prince’s life and career. He didn’t just create music. He lived, breathed, and bled music. And his work wasn’t just for the sake of giving the people something to dance to, but something to think about. He was a pied piper for our era.

Interestingly, the word elevator, the place where he was found dead at his Paisley Park home and studio, reduces to a 9.

The other number which figures prominently not just in his chart, but in his life and work, is the number 7. Prince wrote a song titled, “Seven,” and recorded an album titled, “3121,” which adds to 7.

His birthday is 7, his third pinnacle (ages 36-45) was a 7 (during the years between 1994 to 2003). He wrote his first song at the age of 7. It doesn’t stop there.

The address of his home and recording studio is 7801. Reduces to 7. The letters in Paisley Park, also reduce to 7. His son Boy Gregory, who tragically died from Pfeiffer syndrome, 7 days after he was born.

I’m not sure another human being exemplifies the wonder of 7 energy the way Prince has.

Perfection, prayer, inward focus, mystery, aloofness: These are trademark aspects of 7 energy. It teaches us about faith, about the dark night of the soul, invites us into hidden places, and encourages inquiry about mystery, the unseen, the unknown, and encourages one to dialogue with their dreams. I find it especially intriguing that his home/studio are so heavily immersed in 7 energy. There is undoubtedly a sense of hiddenness, secrecy, and sanctuary in the place Prince called home.

There are three numbers missing from the energies in his name and his birth date: 2, 4, 8.

These are numbers more grounded here in the physical world, relating to foundation, family, business, accomplishment. Absent numbers are considered karmic challenges in numerology, and these numbers show up conspicuously in the timing of his death: On April 21, 2016, his Personal year was 4, Personal month was 8, and his Personal day was 2.

In the absence of number 2, and especially as it shows up as a challenge to two of his pinnacles (1985-1994, and 2003 to 2016), I see it reflected in his many romantic relationships . I don’t doubt that there was love and substance in many or all of these, but it seems he hadn’t found ‘the one.’ Maybe he wasn’t looking for the one. The 7 and 9 energies made him hard to know, and 9 people often belong to the world, so there isn’t a sense that their love, even in its intensity and enormity, is meant for just one person.

The 4 energy is about stability, family, security, roots. I think that he likely internalized the pain from his parents divorce and his impoverished childhood, and may not have recovered a feeling of security.

The 8 is a little harder to understand as a challenge in Prince’s chart, because it’s largely concerned with success. It’s about legacy and vision. By all appearances, success, acclaim, mastery, never seem to have been elusive goals he was fated to chase. He attained success early, and kept a level head and his wits about him, and there is no doubt about his having been a genius visionary. So how had 8 challenged Prince? This energy shows up as a test of how one deals with authority. Being subject to another’s authority, or wielding power of one’s own. And it’s about justice. In this aspect, 8’s  presence as a challenging force was plainly evident in Prince’s life during his battle with Warner Brothers in the early 90s.

Some interesting notes:

I was watching the Welsh singer Tom Jones while drafting this post, and just for kicks and giggles checked to see how old he was. Turns out he’s 75. Prince was 57. I had forgotten that Jones had covered Prince’s hit “Kiss” some years ago. Tom Jones’ wife, Linda, had died just 11 days before Prince. Jones and his wife had been married for 57 years.

Tom Jones’ birthday: 6-7-1940.He  and Prince had the same birthday,  being 18 years older than Prince, that’s two 9 year cycles. Tom Jones is also a 9 Life Path.

I’m just going leave that alone for the time being.

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.

Autopsy # 7: John Lennon

 

John Winston Lennon – 10-09-1940

Date of Death: 12-08-1980

Age: 40

Assassin’s bullet

John Lennon was only 40 when he was gunned down by Mark Chapman a few weeks before Christmas, 1980. Only now I realize how young he was to be struck down so prematurely. Of course, everyone has been confounded by the irony that this man who used his fame to advocate peace and understanding would perish under such senseless, violent circumstances.

John‘s lifepath was 6, a number concerned with family, responsibility, love and harmony. Though his own childhood was marred by his father leaving when he was four or five, then his Aunt Mimi assuming custody from his mother, Julia, John proved to be a devoted husband and father to his second wife, Yoko One, and his sons, Julian (from his first marriage) and Sean.

There is a lot of 6 energy in his chart, showing up as one of his intensity numbers, and as his accessible soul number.

There are 3 6s in his name – all of them the letter O. Yoko Ono has 4 6s – all the letter O. He had legally added Ono to his name at some point after moving to the United States.  It seems he couldn’t get enough of this loving vibration.

Those who knew him best, remember his arrogance as a young man – and that he just assumed he would be famous. His destiny number was 1, and his soul aspiration was 8 – lots of ambition and confidence present in these numbers. The 8 would lead him to integrate his values and passions into his livelihood.

The number hovering around his death is 4. His age was 40, one of his karmic lessons was 4, his second & third challenge was 4, and 4 of the 5 hollow-point bullets  fired entered  his body, causing extensive tissue damage and fatal blood loss that December evening – which was a4 personal month in his 1 year.

Concerned with building, stabilizing, and foundation, 4 is an unlikely energy around death, but its prominence in Lennon’s untimely demise requires examination.

Both 4 and 6 govern aspects of family and responsibility. Lennon was eager to return to their apartment that evening to say goodnight to his son. Otherwise, he and Yoko may have gone out to dinner after a long day involving a photo shoot with Annie Leibowitz, finishing tracks on Double Fantasy, an interview, and of course, obliging fans with autographs – one of whom was Mark Chapman. His sense of responsibility for family and to his fans, his love for his son, put him on a a schedule that would deliver him into the sites of his murderer at 10:50 pm. The time adds up to 6, by the way.

One of 4s qualities is heart, that ability to act from a place of honesty and a belief in goodness. The fourth chakra is located in the heart/lung area, which is where the damage was done by the bullets. It is a strange thing to think that Chapman – whatever his motivation may have been, set out to destroy, symbolically,  something in a peace-loving man that Chapman himself did not possess: Empathy

The address of the Dakota building is 1, which was Lennon’s Destiny number, and his Personal Year in 1980. When he added Ono to his name, he added 9 to his Destiny. The number 9 is about endings, self-negation, and release, and like 6, is motivated by love.  Also of interest is the fact that he had staggered up 5 steps to the security station after he was wounded, before collapsing. His pinnacle was a 5 – and here it is a literal representation – ascending to the 5th step. When I look at his chart layout and see the Pinnacle /Challenge written: 5/4 – it almost seems to foretell the details of his death. The 5 bullets fired, 4 bullets penetrating, ascending 5 steps before collapsing and bleeding out.

A sick man administered the fatal shots,  but Lennon’s love for his family, dedication to his fans, put him on a course that would deliver him to his slaughter at precisely 10:50pm at 1 West 72nd on December 8, 1980.

Autopsy #4: Kurt Cobain

Kurt Donald Cobain – 2-20-1967

Date of Death: 4-5-1994

Suicide

Kurt Cobain would have turned 44 today. He ended his life in April of 1994 by putting a shotgun in his mouth, after injecting himself with a lethal dose of black tar heroin. According to Charles Cross’ biography of the doomed singer, Heavier than Heaven, he had accomplished the same feat three other men in his family had years before: he killed himself twice.

Inheriting what he called “suicide genes”, Cobain deeply internalized all the losses in his life: his parents’ divorce, the violent deaths of his uncles and grandfather, his mother’s rejection,  among other real and perceived losses and failures.

Both disaffected and sensitive, Kurt Cobain was a complex man and difficult to know. Two numbers seem to influence his life and behavior more than any others: 2 and 9.

Governing the emotions, attraction, and reflecting his self-image, 2 appears in Kurt’s chart as both his Destiny number and his Attainment number. It’s also his birth date, and one of his Intensity numbers. Except for the fact that there are no 7s or 8s in his name, and three 3s and 2s, there are two 1s, 4s, 5s, 6s, and 9s in his name.

2 is a number which seeks to connect. It wants relationship, it needs to belong. It finds purpose and value in connection. This was certainly true for Kurt, whose close bonds with his parents  were ripped apart by divorce when he was nine. His world unraveled, his sense of security undone, the split proved to be the pivotal event in his life. The desire to please is a 2 quality most recognizable in Kurt’s deference to his wife, Courtney Love,  and in his devotion to creating authentic and inspired music for his fans. 2s are also known for their likability, easy-going nature, and attractiveness. They are quiet, patient, and passive. These traits were evident in Cobain, who could sustain long periods of silence.

The most troubling number around Kurt Cobain is 9. This is an energy of destruction and self-negation, especially in the position of Life Path, which is one of the key places it shows up in Cobain’s chart.

In the end, 9 wants its subject to not take life so personally. It attempts to destroy the bonds of ego in order to impart the understanding that self-preservation is futile  within the vastness of Source.  In this context, neither Self, nor Preservation has meaning. Our essence cannot be destroyed, changed, insulted, or even improved. It is immutable. And this is the difficult lesson of the 9 life path.

In Kurt Cobain’s life we see this demonstrated in the losses he experienced, the destruction of life and relationships became a repeated pattern over the course of his 27 years. An interesting dichotomy occurs between the destructive, unraveling trajectory of 9 and the attachment driven 2. This may explain the  paradox of a  sensitive, loving soul, and the hardened, jaded, apathetic misanthrope. Both 9 and 2 are generous and loving energies – the 2 expressing love within intimate relationships, and the 9 opening up to love on a bigger scale, recognizing the connection between all life.

The negative aspects of both of these energies presents as apathy, narcissism, and especially in 9, guardedness. Boundary issues are a problem for both numbers, as the need to please and be loved and accepted make people working these numbers vulnerable, self-effacing doormats.

In Kurt’s life, 9 carries out its destructive mission to the hilt – it is his life path, his personal year at the time of his death, his age at the time of his death (adds up to 9), the personal day at the time of his death, and the address of the home where he committed suicide, a home he and his wife purchased in January of that year, was 171 – adds up to 9.

It’s interesting to note, that just shortly after his 9th birthday, his parents divorced. This was also a 9 year for him.

While 9 and 2 both desire love, what they require of the subject is self-love and forgiveness. These processes are crucial in moving through events that force us to see ourselves in they way others treat us. It is easy, and natural, to focus on our failures, to dwell on our imperfections, and then to decide that we are not worthy of happiness because of these things. This makes it difficult or even impossible to receive love from others. He had no difficulty loving others. He mentions that fact that he “loves and feels for people too much” twice in his suicide note.  Self-hatred killed Kurt Cobain. That the world failed to be a loving place was his fault, in his mind.

I’d like to add a thought about his address, 171. The 7 appears between two 1s. 7 is the number of the dark night, of depression, of fear of the unknown. The two 1s, of course add up to 2, and each represents the self – one in this world, the other in the next, on the other side of the mystery of 7.

Happy Birthday Kurt.

Autopsy # 3: Janis Joplin

Janis Lyn Joplin – 1-19-1943

Date of Death: 10-04-1970

Age: 27

1 Life Path, Attainment, Personal Year at Death, Main Challenge, Intensity, Birthday, Soul

As I calculated Janis Joplin’s chart, I was astounded at the number of 1s that kept appearing. Not only in the positions in her numerology chart, but in two of Rolling Stone’s polls, her rankings add up to/reduce to  1 as well. (46th Greatest Artists of All Time, 2004, and 28th Greatest Singers of All Time, 2008).

Certainly, she was a pioneer blazing the trail for women in the male dominated world of Rock and Roll. But even before she had made a name for herself as an outstanding blues and rock vocalist, she stood out. A self-described misfit, she hung out on the fringe with other outcasts in school, and  even though she made attempts at walking the straight and narrow, was never able to remain for very long within the boundaries of convention.

The experience of a 1 life path, especially with so much 1 energy elsewhere in her chart, can be isolating. This is the spirit of the maverick, the leader, the consummate risk-taker.  The challenge is to lead without alienating – to entice others to follow – not drive them away.  Over a lifetime, an individual has a lot of opportunities to balance this energy.

There is a lot of creative energy in 1, which can be expressed a myriad of ways: Art, invention, sex,–this vibration is the dynamic, throbbing verve urging to become manifest. Janis had it in spades.

2 – Personal Month at death, Karmic Lesson & 6 – Personal Day at death

The reflective, harmonizing energy of 2 is missing from Janis Joplin’s chart and her name. It only appears as the energy in play as her personal month in October of 1970.  This energy drags a little(compared to 1) – and is passive, waiting, reflective.  Because of its reflective quality, tension can arise in relationships when 2 is active. And not just one’s relationship to a lover, friend, colleague, etc., but the relationship to all aspects of one’s life is brought to the fore during this time. Sometimes doubt creeps in  when 2 energy is heightened, and the need to reach out and connect is necessary. That her personal day was a 6 underscores the craving for connection, harmony, and love, and the fact that she overdosed in room 105 (adds up to 6) casts a poignant light on  her attempt to feel love, relief, balance with artificial substances. Interestingly the room number is composed of 1 – her life path number, 0, the field where choices are made, and 5, the number of freedom, abandon, and debauchery.

5 – Soul Number (undercurrent), 1st Pinnacle,  & 3 – 1st Challenge

Exploring number 5 further, it appears as one of her soul numbers ( undercurrent) and as her first pinnacle. This energy has much in common with 1, it’s adventurous, in perpetual motion, curious, and impatient. The movement of 5 is chaotic and changes direction often. Its purpose is to expand and move forward, but there is instability in this movement. As her undercurrent soul number, this vibration would lend itself to a fearlessness needed for a trailblazing 1 life path. 5s and 1s are willing and eager to try anything once – anything. Janis’ 5 soul likely heightened her sensual appetites and amplified her craving for drugs and alcohol.

As her 1st pinnacle, the 5 energy is available as a motivating force, presenting many opportunities to taste all that life has to offer, to promote one’s self, to travel, and to experience the freedom of living in the moment, being neither tied to the past, nor afraid of the future. Her challenge during this time was a 3, which has many of the sensual and creative components of 5, but is more emotional, and presses its subject to remain focused instead of scattering energy and resources.

7 – Soul (Aspiration) Pearl

Janis’  Soul number in the aspiration position was 7. Her nickname Pearl, reduces to a 7 also. The number in this position represents  a quality that the soul wishes to embody, a  gift that we wish to express, it is often a talent or an ability that we think we don’t already possess. I can only surmise that she may have wished to have faith  in herself, in god, in the supportive action of the universe. 7 is the number of sanctuary, of prayer, of mind over matter. This energy shares some of the qualities in 1 – namely isolation,intelligence, perfection, and the willingness to get from here to there alone.

It’s possible that in the persona of Pearl, Janis sought a place to  reinvent herself, to temper her soul, and perhaps to eventually emerge more actualized, purified. Or maybe, Pearl was a place to hide and dream.   Interestingly, the heroin that killed her was as lethal as it was because of its purity.

Autopsy # 2: Ian Curtis

Ian Kevin Curtis  7-15-1956

Date of Death 5-18-1980

Age:23

13/4Personal Year at time of death, Destiny Number, 1st Pinnacle

Ian was 23 when he died, just as Joy Division was to embark on their US tour. People often see an increase in work, responsibility, and need for organization during a 4 year.  This number appears several times in is chart: as his Destiny, one of his  Soul numbers (soul aspiration position) one of his Karmic Lessons, and it’s his first Pinnacle.

4 energy is  denser and slow moving, and people working with it may feel like they are wading through cement, expending a lot of effort but seeming to get nowhere. Unless one is patient, this can be a frustrating number to deal with. But what it attempts to do is stabilize. It forces one to stay with the process and build steadily. The gravity of 4’s plodding movement may have been what proved to much for Ian, who hanged himself in his kitchen after sending his wife away for the night.

Ian craved stability – but struggled to achieve balance as he attempted to cope with  depression, the ramifications of an extramarital affair on his marriage, and frequent epileptic seizures. He desired the rootedness of family but rebelled against the oppressiveness of the responsibility.

9 – Personal Month and Day (at death), Intensity, and Soul Undercurrent

The number 9 is prominent in Ian Curtis’ chart. In a 4 personal year, May would be a 9 personal month, and the 18th would be a 9 personal day. Ian’s intensity number was also a 9, and his soul undercurrent was a 9.

On the surface, 9 is about endings, so his death is not a surprising event in this context. But the fact that this energy of self-negation appears frequently in key positions in Ian’s chart is interesting. As an undercurrent, it is a subtle influence, nearly imperceptible, but moves him through the events of his life the way a rutter propels a ship. 9 is a vortex energy (like 6 and 1) so its movement is powerful. It wants to do two things: Destroy and Resolve. This is the force that pulls matter apart, and is also the place where matter exists for rebuilding. It is a force of renewal, and offers a sense of fullness, safety, all-encompassing love, and oneness if one is courageous enough to surrender to its pull.

“Love Will Tear Us Apart” is perhaps Joy Division’s best known single, and the title’s  message corresponds to the action of 9 energy, essentially that all things are resorbed into oblivion. The cosmic force behind all destruction and rebuilding is attraction, gravity,  or as we qualify and romanticize it, love. Cosmically speaking, the force we call love is more impersonal than we care to admit. But its pull is,  in the end, irresistible, and we are undone by it.

We make judgments about failure, weakness, self-destructive behavior, but in nature, this action is a necessary part of creation. All of us will eventually be reduced to our component parts, becoming food or flower. The cycle goes on; this is the action of 9. It is possible to open to 9 without literally destroying the body, but one must be willing to forfeit everything to get there.

7Life Path, Karmic Lesson, Middle Name,

Ian’s middle name, Kevin, reduces to a 7. The middle name tells us about our emotional life, qualities that aren’t so obvious to casual observers. This number was also his Life Path – governing the terrain of his short journey here.

7 rules the world of dreams, prayers, all that lies beneath the surface – the hidden, mysterious forces that move through everything. Individuals who are walking a 7 life path are often hard to read, and prefer to be left to themselves, in quiet, in solitude.

The lesson of 7 is that of faith. When there are no obvious answers left, we have no other recourse  but go inward, to our dreams, to our god, to our own wisdom.

In Ian’s chart, we discover two energies that wish to accomplish opposing things: the anchoring, physical, matter-loving energy of 4, and the ephemeral, consciousness-dwelling aspect of 7.  To resolve these numbers, we subtract, and our resolution should be found in the number 3.  The difference then  between the material world (4) and dreams(7) is expression: art, music, celebration, love.

Certainly, Ian was able to express his soul through his music and poetry. There are those who wonder that if his epilepsy was better controlled,  then maybe he would have had the constitution to work through his depression. Epilepsy is an electrical surge – like lighting in the brain.  Lightning is the result of electrical charged air (7) making contact with earth(4). The discharge is seen and heard, and the air is purified. Perhaps his epilepsy was (holistically speaking) the surge of much creative energy  seeking outlet.

7 is also the vibration around the dark night of the soul – because it isolates. Interestingly, the house number of his Macclesfield home was 77. Part of the difficulty of working with 7 is the  fear of the unknown.  Ian Curtis’ life path energy would have taught him to have faith – that the answer will come, and the 9 energy in his chart would have reassured him that he didn’t always have to be right, it was his purpose to exist and dwell in love no matter what.

It’s been reported that he had been listening to Iggy Pop’s The Idiot before he died. The journey of 7 is to chance  looking like an idiot – of misstepping, of taking a risk and failing, of making a move without having all the information or having a Plan B. The 4 energy would have resisted this urge to move forward without due diligence.  Both vibrations seek perfection – a painful struggle, indeed.
