David Bowie-Dying at/on his birthday-Completion

The news of David Bowie’s recent death and news coverage allows us to see inside the planning and completion of a lifetime



here on earth.  I have often mentioned that when we die on or within a week or two of our birthday, we have completed what we came here to do.  What we came here to do is not necessarily obvious to ourselves or others but on occasion we get to look at a plan that gives us an example of this thought.

David Robert Haywood Jones was born on January 8, 1947 in London.  His Life Path from his date of birth is the number 3 (the sum total of his month, day and year=30).  The number 3 is always involved in creativity.  It can be acting, singing, painting, designing as well as other creative endeavors.  It is always about bringing “joy” to others.  When you look at Bowie’s name, you see that there is no number 3 in it (no c, l or u).  This is his only missing number.   This was his lesson to learn and correction to make in this lifetime.  It was so critical to him that it was made into the Life Path of this life.  He was always going to be going in the direction of the arts.  It would always consume him.

This was not the first lifetime he had been a “star”.  He came in from past lives with “star” quality.  He had a correction to make in this lifetime regarding his strength and ability to get back out there on stage.  There was an early reluctance and he had even thought of being a Buddhist monk.  He learned much of the Japanese traditions and particularly loved the design and flow of their clothing.  It showed up everywhere on stage.  He was a Capricorn and his chart has other places of Capricorn in it (Mars and Mercury both in Capricorn).  The constellation Capricorn rules bones, skin and teeth–the structure.  His structure would always be bony, angular with fine skin.

David was very Aquarian Age in his choice of music, dress, structure and gender.  He took on the look of the androgynous, wearing both female and male outfits, quickly changing stage personalities and bringing us the future.  Today we see in fashion runways males wearing female clothing.  His music included space, stars and other worlds.  He helped prepare us for the changes of the Aquarian Age as do so many of the stage and screen.

He died almost on his birthday, in his 9th, or ending year in a universal 9 year (2016).  He was diagnosed in his 7th year, the year of rest, introspection and planning.  He began his last album “Black Star” in his 7th year and created it in his harvest year number 8, 2015.  The release date was perfectly timed for both his birthday and his death day.  Again, he never got very far away from his deep introspective nature or his connectedness to the unseen world.  He lived his life on purpose.  He may never have even thought about it, it had become second nature.   It was time for him to go home.

    Hello Janice,
    I don’t have any blog that specifically focuses on numbers 2 and 8. I do have a book, “Divine Design–How You Created the Life You Are Living” which explains these numbers and how they can be found in pinnacles, life path, day of birth.

    I add the date of birth separately and then add together. For instance 10-22-1950 would be 10+22+15 (1950 added together). I always look at the compound total and then the individual number–47 then 4+7=11. Master numbers such as 11 are not reduced.

    Thanks for commenting.

    Happy New Year Gail,

    Can you point me to any of your blogs where you’ve covered missing numbers in names? I’m missing 2 and 8, would like to know more.

    Also, when you add up birthday numbers to get the life path number, do you reduce your birthday numbers right away, or do you add them “whole” and then reduce down?

    Thank you!

    Gail, is there nothing you don’t know? Along with all the grief, it’s wonderful to read about Bowie’s life and death in such a constructive and positive way. You’ve done it again. -Flo
