The Metaphysics of Kemet: Ancient Egypt & The Number 19


The Black Cat Archetype 19 is rooted in the essence of time and nature itself.

When we combine the single digit expressions of the earth, sun and moon, using the so-called Pythagorean numerology method, we get 19.

The word “earth” equals 52, which becomes 5+2=7.

The word “sun” equals 54, which becomes 5+4=9.

The word ” moon” equals 57, which becomes 5+7=12; 1+2=3.

When we add the single digit expressions of the earth, sun and moon we get the following: 7+9+3=19.

With the vibration of number 19 literally rooted in nature itself, it is no surprise that the Black Cat Archetype is found in Ancient Egypt, one of the oldest civilizations in recorded history.

The relationship to nature, hence to the cosmos was very important to the Ancient Egyptians.

The name of their language reflected this.

The name of the original language of Ancient Egypt or Kemet/ Ta-Merry was Metu Neter, which has several variants such as Medu Neter, Mdw Ntr and Medew Netcher to name a few.


Commonly referred to as hieroglyphs, Metu Neter according to various scholars means “the voice or words of God” or “words of nature”.

“Metu” equals 19.

A principle of nature important to Ancient Kemet was the sun which was symbolically represented as RA.

RA equals 19 for “R” is the 18th letter and “A” the 1st. 18+1=19.

RA for the Kemetic civilization was considered the “Father of the Gods.” African scholars on the subject view RA as representing electromagnetism.

Ra Un Nefer Amen refers to  RA as the “holy spirit”.

Both electromagnetism and holy spirit deal with the principle of animation, energy in life.

RA is not the only neter/neteru whose name in the English language equals 19.

The number 19 vibration can be indentified with Auset.

Auset the original name for Isis also equals 19 under the Chaldean numerology system:

Auset was very important to Ancient Egyptian thought.

Kbonsura A. Wilson in the Encyclopedia of African Religion writes:


“Auset is the venerated ancient Kemetic daughter of Geb (god of earth) and Nut (god of the heavens).

In addition, she is the mother of Heru and husband of Ausar.

Kemetians represented her in the form of a throne, which represents the seat and transmission of power for the per-aa (pharaoh).

In the Theology of On (Heliopolis), she is part of the Pesedjet, the collective company or “family” of nine gods in the On cosmogony, which included Ra, Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Ausar, Her-wer, Set, and Nebt-het.

Auset represented the female productive forces in nature. Kemetians recognized her as a moon goddess and a mystic goddess of the supernatural associated with the tyet, a symbol of magic in Kemet.”

Auset connection to the “throne” runs deep.

For according to Ancient  Egyptian mythology:

Auset was pivotal in the resurrection of Ausar when he was murdered by Set.

Using her magical skills, she restored his body to life after having gathered the 14 body parts that had been scattered about the earth by Set.

According to the teachings of the Ausar Auset Society led by Ra Nefer Amen, Auset governs the trance state of consciousness, which is critical for receiving spiritual guidance and effectively programming the spirit.

In their teachings Auset is understood in part in the following manner:

“Law of Auset
Prepare to sacrifice everything to become the vessel of God on earth, and you will, in turn, receive everything. This is devotion to serving God.
[Auset] corresponds to [one of] the tools through which behavior ispr ogrammed. Through the understanding of the law such programming can be done at will. Ifwe have the tools to program any desired behavior at will, then we can choose to allow only peace and pleasure to manifest as our emotional reactions to all events.
Auset Truisms
1)I know that I am devoted to spirituality for I have given the highest priority in my life to the resurrection of Ausar. 
2)I am the master of my person. Through trance, I can cultivate any emotion I desire to manifest
3)My ability to cultivate the experience”


The manifeston of the number 19 in Ancient Egypt is related to  “earthly and divine power” , “establishing foundation”, “throne” and “ruling a kingdom”.

The examination of principles associated with Ra, Auset, Ta- Merry and Narmer will bear witness to the fact.

The area known as Ancient Egypt was referred to by the original inhabitants as Kemet and Ta-Merry.

“Ta-Merry” under Chaldean numerology equals 19.

The value of  each letter under Chaldean numerology is:

An important figure in Ancient Egyptian history is Narmer, who is also referred to as Menes.

According to Ancient Egypt online:

“According to Manetho and Herodotus the first Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt was Menes.

Many experts consider that Menes and Narmerhe same person. (Petrie 1916, Lloyd 1994, Cervello-Autuori 2003).”

The name “Narmer” equals 19 under Chaldean numerology:

The presence of the number 19 would continue as the visible power of Kemet/Ancient Egypt was in decline.

Ankhenaton considered by many scholars to be heretic ruler due to his establishing Aten as primary over previously held traditions in Kemet. Nevertheless even Akhenaton cannot avoid the number 19.

If one observes the picture below, one can count 19 rays emanating from the image of Aten.


The features or principles associated with the number 19 would influence other traditions that appropriated the legacy of Kemet.

For example with the Tarot cards, the 19th card is known as the “Sun Card”.

A group in Europe strongly associated with the Tarot are the Gypsies. Gypsies were previously believed to be from modern day Egypt, though new evidence suggests otherwise.

Nevertheless the elements identified in Ancient Egypt are present in the culture of the Gypsies including the number 19.

This is seen with the Tarot card with the sun having the same number as the Kemetic neter RA.

RA equals 19 and the “sun card” of the Tarot also equals 19. Furthermore we can observe a similar relationship with the holy books of Judaism Islam and Christianity.

The holy book for Jews is the Torah.

Jews have weaved a narrative based upon their supposed relationship to Ancient Egypt.

The word ” Torah” equals 19 under Chaldean numerology:








The holy book for Muslims, practioners of Islam is the Holy Qur’an.

The Qur’an has a very strong relationship to the number 19.

The very structure of the Qur’an is based  on 19.

Consider the following:

1. The first verse of the Qur’an (1:1), known as “Basmalah,” has 19 letters in all.

2. The last revealation in Sura 110 has 19 words.

An example of “as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end”; the opening passage of the Qur’an as well as the last revealation governed by 19.

With European  Christainity, the King James Bible also has a profound relationship to the number 19, although is not recognized as in Islam.

In the European Bible there are a total of

1,189 chapters. “1,189=1+1+8+9=19.

The book of Joshua has 658 verses.


The single digit expression in numerology of the words “Torah”, “Qur’an” and the “Bible” gives us 19, just  as the combined single digit values of the earth, sun and moon.

Using so-called Pythagorean numerology:

Torah= 26=2+6=8.




Another religion with a profound relationship to the number 19 is the Bahá’í Faith faith. The  Bahá’í adhere to the following:

“The number 19 appears in several roles in the Bábí and Bahá’í faiths.

Among these are: the gathering of 19 Letters of the Living, the use of 19 per cent in monetary matters, the calendar, and therefore the Nineteen Day Feast.”

In regards to the calendar of the Bahá’í:

“There are 19 days in each month, and these 19 days each have a name, or ordinal identifier. There are 19 months in a year, and these months each have a name.

19 years make up a Vahid, or Unity.

19 Vahids comprise a Kull-i-Shay (Cycle of All Things).”

All religions in one way or the other have taken from the Kemetic/Nile Valley Civilization. Scholars such as Yosef Ben Jochannan affectionately known as Dr. Ben, Ivan Van Sertima, Chiekh Anta Diop, Molefi Asante and many others have clearly demonstrated how the Western world is in debt to Kemet.

By exploring through the use of primarily the Chaldean and the so-called Pythagorean methods of numerology; we have identified 19 as a key metaphysical component of Kemetic civilization.

The vibration of the number 19 from Kemet travelled where its influence went.

Thus we can identify the number 19 vibration in other systems of spiritual and religious expressions.

The 19 vibration is the source of the other associated expressions, namely the “Cat Archetype”.

Two consorts of Ra, according to Kemetic cosmology are embodiments of the cat archetype, Sekhmet and Bastet.



Sekhmet and Bastet were at one time described as the children of Ra.



Remember that both names Ra and Auset respectively each equal 19.

One of the ancient names for Ancient Egypt, “Ta Merry” equals 19.

The name of  “Narmer”, the leader who is credited in uniting lower and upper Kemet, equals 19.

Two of the primary figures in Ancient Kemetic cosmology; RA and Auset names equal 19.

RA just as previously discussed Auset were important to the conception of leadership.

“RA was often considered to be the King of the Gods and thus the patron of the pharaoh and one of the central gods of the Egyptian pantheon. He was also described as the creator of everything.

Ra was so powerful and popular and his worship was so enduring that some modern commentators have argued that the Egyptian religion was in fact a form of veiled monotheism with Ra as the one god.”

“By the Fifth Dynasty the pharaoh was referred to as the son of Ra and the name of Ra was incorporated into the throne name of every king from that point onwards.”

In addition to having consorts that embody the cat archetype as seen with Sekhmet and Bastet; RA was sometimes depicted as a lion.

Consider that RA was seen as the creator and source of all life, it makes logical sense that if  RA is embedded in 19; other faculties that emerge from him will also reflect the number 19.

The term “Black Cat” equals 19 under Chaldean Numerology.

RA seen as the creator and sustainer of life equals 19.

It all began on the banks of the Nile with the Black Cat Archetype 19 as seen with RA!
