Themes In The Life Of Michael Jackson: Part 1

Numerological Themes  


The Life of Michael Jackson

Numerology is the discipline in which the understanding to life and its events are derived from identifying the role that numbers and their corresponding meanings have for a particular person or group. Whether observed or not, numbers play a role in everyone’s life.

There are 2 aspects of numerology among others that will be used frequently in this analysis. They are the Life Path number, and Destiny number or Expression number. The Life Path number is the sum of the numerical value of one’s birth date and the Destiny/Expression is attained from the sum of the numerical value of one’s name.

Some of the numbers that consistently appear in the life of Michael Jackson are 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 11. Of those numbers 4,6 and 7 are the most pronounced.


What does it all mean? The frequent occurrance of the number means that person or group is directed by the positive and/or negative aspects of that number. I will in later articles address what these numbers mean/meant to Michael Jackson and how we saw their  corresponding meanings  play out in his life.


Michael’s last name “Jackson” adds up to 19, which gives us 1+9=10=1+0=1.
