Jackie Robinson, Number 42

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...

Kobe Bryant – No. 24

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...

Masters’ Tournament 2013 Top Gun 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...
