A Tribute to Robin Williams

August 16th, 2014 by Sally Faubion

Robin Williams

I have read many of the commentaries written about Robin Williams over the past few days and all of them express what an exemplary human being he was from his comedic talent to his generosity and gracious giving.

I sat down beside him one day here in San Francisco when I was purchasing a pair of running shoes at a shoe shop called “On The Run,” which had been rumored to be where Robin purchased some of his running shoes. I didn’t go there because of that, and that day I just happened to sit down on the little bench facing the checkout counter where Mr. Williams was sitting trying on a pair of shoes, too. Through my peripheral vision, I noticed that the man sitting next to me had a very hairy arm that was adorned with a knitted friendship bracelet. I thought instantly, OMG! This must be Robin Williams. Not wanting to disrupt his privacy, I looked at the clerk behind the checkout counter and mouthed the words, “Is that Robin Williams?” with my eyes likely looking like a deer caught in headlights. The clerk nodded “Yes.” Fortunately, I didn’t inflict myself upon him. I just continued to try on the shoes and then got up and purchased them and left. I have had encounters with other famous people in San Francisco for whom I wasn’t as contained and seemingly nonchalant, but I was pleased that I didn’t become the buffoon that I might have been in Mr. Williams’ presence.

I also had the opportunity of viewing him performing with Sharon Stone at a Glide Memorial Charity Auction for which he and Ms. Stone volunteered themselves for the cause. Mr. Williams, being 5’5″ tall, and Ms. Stone, being 5’10′ tall and in heels, were a rather interesting combo to view. Mr. Williams’ height, however, was the last thing that made an impression once he stepped onto the stage. As usual, his presentation was grand and glorious to watch.

A Numerological Perspective of Mr. Williams

Mr. Williams’ name number was a 4. The name number represents how one presents oneself in their career and in society. The number 4 is a down-to-earth, non-pretentious, forthright mode of expression for which his friends validated in their tributes to him.

His birth “day” number was the 21. The 2 represents his kind, caring, and nurturing nature, coupled with the 1 which represents originality and innovativeness. The 21 reduces to 3 (2+1 = 3) is the number of self-expression, a heighten imagination, and creativity. Mr. Williams certainly typified each of those traits.

His “destiny” number was the 8. The destiny number is the most powerful of all the numbers in a numerological chart and Mr. Williams’ was the quintessential example of what an 8 represents, i.e., the exemplar, Chairman of the Board, the teacher of teachers, the quality operator, and the Class Act. The only drawback for those with the 8 destiny who exhibit such aplomb and exuberance as Mr. Williams was prone to do, is that as high as they might elevate themselves with their grandiosity and aplomb, the harder and farther they fall when their “stage curtain” is pulled. The number 8 destiny is the one number vibration most prone to depression.

On a lighter note, people with 8 destinies are the most gracious and giving of all because the number 8 is the highest and most powerful vibration of the female-oriented numbers (those being the even numbers 2, 4, 6 and 8, in the number set of 1 through 9). This female orientation imbues those with 8 destinies with a high and righteous spirit that is ready to leap to the aid of any animal or human in need like no other number vibration would or, in some cases, could. They are incomparable in their innate quest and spontaneous response to give a helping hand and Mr. Williams certainly conveyed those kinds of soulful and selfless actions. He was truly a tribute to all mankind and it is heartwarming to learn of his legacy.

Will Tiger Woods ever get his mojo back?

August 10th, 2014 by Sally Faubion

It appears that Tiger Woods is headed into a much better phase of his professional life at this time. Joe LaCava, his new caddy who is born on February 23, 1964, could also act as somewhat of an ambassador for him, if allowed. They are not the best match from a personality standpoint, but his numbers show that LaCava would take great pride in work his work and also for whom he works. It may take a year before Tiger is fully back to his A game, but judging from his numbers, over the next four years it appears that he will make a comeback. However, there are still rough seas ahead for this headstrong recovering playboy. By the time he’s in his mid-40s – only a few short years away (he’ll be 39 in December), he will face possibly even a greater trial for him than the one he experienced in 2010, which was the beginning of his Great Downfall in the eyes of many.

Will Beyoncé stay married to Jay-Z?

August 10th, 2014 by Sally Faubion

Yes, Beyoncé will stay married to Jay-Z and I predict that she will either become pregnant or have another child in 2015. She appears to be quite happy. Jay-Z, on the other hand, has challenging numbers and has had them ever since he was a young boy. Perhaps that’s because he’s had his fingers in so many pies, along with being married to a diva. His numbers show that he doesn’t feel he’s that appreciated for all that he does. He has the number 45 in his chart from age 41 through 49. I call that number the “Rodney Dangerfield” number because it usually means that the person with that number isn’t getting the respect they feel is their due for one reason or another. BTW, he married Beyoncé at age 38 and since then they have sold a combined total of 300,000 albums. I think, perhaps, they can’t afford to get a divorce even if they wanted to.

Will Jennifer Aniston ever marry her fiancé?

August 10th, 2014 by Sally Faubion

My prediction is no. The numbers of these two are not the best. I can understand how Theroux would hang in there hoping that they eventually get married, but Aniston has double 11s. That means that she was born on an 11 day with an 11 destiny. Having the 11 in those two positions could make it very difficult for her to come to a definitive decision about getting married again. Another reason I think a marriage likely won’t happen is because Aniston, at age 45 and beyond, doesn’t have any numbers that indicate that she would be in a married state. That’s my take on it.

Will Oscar Pastorius be acquitted?

August 10th, 2014 by Sally Faubion

Judging from his numbers, he will either get a very short sentence or sidestep the second-degree murder charge altogether in this trial. However, his chart does show that he will face another trial in the future liken to the murder trial of O. J. Simpson in which he was sued by Nicole Simpson’s family in Civil Court and found guilty on all counts. That same scenario could very well happen in this case because Pistorius, from ages 31 through 40, will be experiencing some challenging numbers. Things clear up after his age of 40, but it appears there will be some retribution in this case, even if he is acquitted of any lawsuit.

Jackie Robinson, Number 42

April 30th, 2013 by Sally Faubion

Jackie Robinson

I’m currently working on a book about sports jersey numbers.  In the book, I offer the three “power numbers” that are derived from either the name or the birth date of the athlete which, if chosen as his or her jersey number, can offer more clout and effectiveness to that ballplayer.

In my cursory study of approximately 300 Hall of Fame athletes, I found that more than 40 percent had chosen one of their “power numbers” for their jersey.  This finding indicates to me that those athletes had a “sense” or “feeling” about a certain number because that number resonated to them either from their name or birthdate — – unless they had some knowledge of the their personal numerology chart which, one could venture a guess, was quite unlikely.

Recently, a few of my friends who know I’ve been working on this jersey number book have asked me if I analyzed the number 42 in relation to Jackie Robinson, mainly because a movie is currently being released with 42 as its title.  Since I’m obsessed with all numbers, and especially any number that becomes newsworthy, I have analyzed the number 42 in relation to Jackie Robinson’s name and birth date extensively and at first couldn’t come up with any “power number” in his numerological composition that correlated with 42.

As I perused Robinson’s chart, however, I found some very interesting aspects that were beyond the confines of my “power numbers” components.  First of all, his name and birth date contained the three numbers I have labeled the “renegade” numbers.  These are 1, 4, and 7.  His “name number” (which I call the CHARACTER number) was a 1; the day of the month he was born (which I call the PERSONALITY number) was 31 which reduces to 4 (3+1=4), and the full addition of his birth date, reduced to a single digit (which I call the DESTINY number), was 7.

Most people with one or more of these RENEGADE numbers in any one of those significant positions in their chart are not inclined to march to the “mainstream drumbeat.”  Jackie Robinson had a RENEGADE number for each category, and that he was!  Renegade is defined in the dictionary as a defector, a rebel, and a betrayer.  My way of viewing renegades, of which I’m one, is that we are those who cannot be bound by any dictates other than our own.  Most of us are of the “loner” ilk and a high majority of us are entrepreneurial and have a burning drive within ourselves to call our own shots and run our own show.  Innovation, trail-blazing, and non-conformity are also strong ear-markings of a “renegade.”  A few modern-day trail-blazing renegades come to mind:  Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Jobs, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Oracle’s Larry Ellison. Maya Angelou, Johnny Unitas, Janis Joplin, Sally Ride, Shaquille O’Neal, Tiger Woods, Woody Allen, Mohammed Ali, Susan Sarandon, and even Princess Diana of England also rank among the RENEGADE clan.

Jackie Robinson was more than a renegade, though.  He chose a jersey number that foretold the struggle he embarked upon.  The number 42 can be defined as follows:

4 = dedication, perseverance, determination, compliance, cool-headedness, endurance, and resoluteness.

2 = cooperation, diplomacy, flexibility, harmony, humility, patience, tolerance and peace-making.

4 + 2 = 6 and the 6 represents humanitarianism, fairness, justice, balance, sacrifice, and honorability.

The challenge of the 42 is found by subtracting the 4 from the 2, which equals 2.  The challenge represents the influences that someone must fight against, or muster the courage and strength to rise to the higher influence of whatever that challenge number is.  The lower vibrations/influences of the 2 are lack of cooperation, lack of diplomacy, lack of flexibility, lack of harmony, lack of tolerance, and a lack of peaceful circumstances.

Robinson represented the best qualities associated with all those numbers: 4, 2 and 6.  He honorably sacrificed his own solace and convenience for the higher principles of fairness and justice, helping to lift all of humanity to a new level of acceptance and appreciation for all colors and creeds, as our United States Constitution has extolled since its inception.

Kobe Bryant – No. 24

April 30th, 2013 by Sally Faubion

Kobe Bryant

Bryant came to mind last week when I learned that he injured his Achilles’ tendon. When I searched his name, I found that he and his wife had also recently decided to stay together after a separation. I immediately ran his chart and found that his marital troubles may not be over – either that or his ability to get back in the ballgame may have been more hampered than he may suspect at this time. The Internet is reporting that a few days ago he had “successful” surgery on his Achilles’ tendon. I hope that is the case, but analyzing his numbers shows me that something is going to challenge him for a while.


Kobe Bryant has an interesting story about his jersey numbers, too. As a rookie, he wanted the first jersey number he wore in high school which was 24, which was unavailable at that time, as was his second choice No. 33 which was retired with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Unknowingly, Bryant used a, dare I say, “numerological method” for adding together the numbers 1=4=3 (which was the number he wore at the Adidas ABCD camp), which reduced to the number 8 [1 + 4 + 3 = 8] and decided to use the 8 as his rookie number. Then, in the 2006-07 NBA season he was able to change the No. 8 back to his favored No. 24.


The No. 24 is called “the cosmic love number” in numerology. I had thought at the time Bryant changed from the 8 to the 24 that the change might reinforce his marital situation after the sexual debacle in 2003-04. I was making that assumption from a numerological perspective because the No. 24 is a “love” vibration. The 8, on the other hand, is called “the great equalizer,” what goes around comes around, which may have helped to land Bryant in that very compromising and highly publicized position in 2003 and 2004.


If he were to ask me, I would tell him to choose the No. 23 as his jersey number.  First of all, he was born on the 23rd of August, and secondly, his player “handle,” “Black Mamba,” reduces to the 23 when all the numbers associated with those letters are added together ([Black – 2+3+1+3+2 = 11, plus Mamba – 4+1+4+2+1 = 12, and 11 + 12 = 23). He has some major “spiritual test” numbers in his chart over the next 5 years and it may be that his marriage and his career are both on the line. He will recover from these trials around age 40, and hopefully have raised his consciousness to a new level of understand and compassion, which is what the spiritual test numbers are all about.

Masters’ Tournament 2013 Top Gun Adam Scott

April 29th, 2013 by Sally Faubion

Adam Scott

Adam Derek Scott, born July 16, 1980, is the latest golfer to don the prestigious green jacket, the symbol of the winner of the golf world’s Masters Tournament.

This young Aussie has entered a time in his life, judging from his numerological chart, that ensures good fortune in his career, and although he may not win every tournament he enters, he is sure to evolve as one of the most respected golfers on the winner’s circuit.

It appears that he has a lady love at this time but the constraints of his career may curtail a positive outcome of that over the next year and a half.  Once he’s “back on the market,” so to speak, he will certainly be a great catch for any young lady who doesn’t mind playing second fiddle to his golf opus (FYI: opus is from Latin meaning work or labor).  It appears he will be focusing on laying a solid winner’s foundation in golf over the next 6-7 years and then he will begin settling into building a personal family life.

His happiest years appear to be after age 40 which is when the best numbers appear in his chart.  There will be a good marriage and children and all the accoutrements that go along with “the good life”.  I predict this handsome young shining star will become well known over the next few years as he swings his way to fortune and fame.

John McAfeeHas JOHN McAFEE, founder and innovator of McAfee Security Systems, born on September 18, 1945 [same month and day as LANCE ARMSTRONG], gone crackers. Not likely. There aren’t many “crackers” numbers in his chart and, in fact, moreover they show the possibility that he is cunning, calculating, controlling, manipulative, and likely quite enamored with the caricature of himself that he manifested over the past few years for his own self-serving desires and purposes.  It appears, however, that he “got too smart for his own breeches” [another apropos expression from the olden days :) ].  Ultimately, his future numbers show that if he makes it to age 72 [he’s currently 67] which is iffy, he might actually make a comeback and reign high again until his late 80s. Albeit, at this time he faces the greatest challenges he has ever faced. From a compassionate standpoint, I’d say he could use some prayers.

Nicki MinajNICKI MINAJ [real name Onika Maraj] was born on December 8, 1982.  Since I’m a fan of American Idol, I must say that watching Ms. Minaj this season meander through her many impersonations and eccentricities gave me reason to run her chart to determine if the numbers would offer some explanation for what I consider to be an irritating and unattractive public persona. As it turns out, she has a classic numerological dichotomy of nature.


Having been born on an 8 day, she has the birth right of eloquence along with the ability to deliver exemplary quality through her artistic endeavors. She would also be prone to wanting to exhibit a gracious and aristocratic demeanor [perhaps that’s why she so readily expresses herself with an English accent]. However, her Destiny number 4 (which reigns over her Personality 8) throws a subverting wrench in her Royal English chaste-like nature by causing her to say daffy and disconcerting things when trying, at the same time, to appear sophisticated and gentile.


The dichotomy is the 8 with the 4 – - the 8 being the number of “the class act” and the 4 being the number of a down-to-earth, say-it-like-it-is renegade type. Nicki exemplifies this dichotomy in an annoyingly entertaining way and her numbers show she will not fare well for this personality impediment with the American Idol gig.  I predict she will not return for another season – - and that ain’t just wishful thinkin’ :)
