Natural Mystic: Bob Marley & The Wailers in Zimbabwe

Reggae music has no boundaries, like the Black Cat Archetype19, it reflects.

“REGGAE” equals 19 under Chaldean numerology and due to its esoteric composition, is also metaphysically linked with the Black Cat pantheon, namely the Lion.

On any given day, one can find upcoming as well as established Reggae artists, performing anywhere on the continent. Reggae music is being played in homes, radio stations and clubs all over Africa.

Reggae music has historically been linked to Africa.

Reggae artists have actively engaged in raising awareness about the history, culture and the geo- political issues confronting the African continent.

Africa inspired Reggae artists and in turn Reggae artists inspired Africa.

This can be clearly seen in Southern Africa during the height of the anti-colonial struggle in 1980s.

Bob Marley is forever linked to the independence of Zimbabwe.

Robert Nesta Marley, better known as Bob Marley lived from February 6, 1945 to May 11, 1981.

Marley expresses the Black Cat Archetype 19 in numerous ways.

The name “Bob” equals 19 according to the absolute value determined by alphabetic order:






In his birth and passing we readily identify the number 19.

“1945” was the year Bob Marley was born.


Marley under suspicious circumstances “returned to Jah” in 1981.

“1981” equals: 1+9+8+1=19.

We see the number 19 in a major historic event involving Bob Marley & The Wailers and Zimbabwe.

On April 19, 1980, Bob Marley performed for over 100,000 people at Rufaro Stadium in Harare, Zimbabwe to celebrate their independence from colonial rule.

Bob Marley and the Wailers arrived in Zimbabwe on April 16, 1980.

Bob Marley’s appearance was greeted with excitement because he was an international celebrity.  “April 16, 1980″=



Bob Marley and  the Wailers Marley paid for all expenses for his historical trip to Zimbabwe, endearing him to generations later for his self-less gesture.

They performed the song “Zimbabwe” at Zimbabwe’s first independence festivities on April 18, 1980. “April 18, 1980″=


The number 40 represents “completion”, “new phase” and “purification” among other related spiritual principles.

40 weeks is period of a normal pregnancy of a woman.

The song “Zimbabwe” would be featured on his 11th studio album titled “Survival”, which was released on October 2, 1979.  We see the number 11  again in the date Survival, Marley’s 11th was released.

“October 2, 1979″=



October is Black History Month in the United Kingdom.

In the United States, October is known as “Black Cat Month”.

Remember the date when Bob Marley & The Wailers arrived in Zimbabwe on April 16, 1980 equals 11, which corresponds to his 11th studio album Survival, which features his song Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe, formerly known as Rhodesia was engaged in a fierce armed struggle, not only against the British but also the demonic  apartheid regime of South Africa.

The Freedom Fighters of  Zimbabwe’s independence listened to Marley’s music not just for mere entertainment but also when carrying out attacks on the oppressor “while in the bush”.

The movement for independence was referred to by Zimbabweans as “Chimurenga” in the Shona language or the Ndebele equivalent “Umvukela”. Both terms mean “revolutionary struggle”.

Bob Marley didn’t just visit Zimbabwe to perform, according to published reports he “stayed at run hotel”, met  with guerilla fighters and local Zimbabwean marijuana growers.

Yes, he did smoke herb with them.

Bob Marley was not the only major figure during the Zimbabwe celebrations to express the Black Cat Archetype 19, the host ruling party did so as well .

The ruling political party at the time of  Zimbabwean independence was the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU), led by Robert Mugabe.

The acronym ZANU, equals 19 under Chaldean numerology.

ZANU was founded on August 8, 1963. “1963”=1+9+6+3=19.

August 8th falls under the Leo zodiac, whose symbol is the LION. The LION is a member of the Black Cat Archetype 19 pantheon.

Other actors in the liberation of Zimbabwe also embody the Black Cat Archetype 19.

The Zimbabwe African People’s Union (ZAPU) founded by Joshua Nkomo expressed the Black Cat Archetype 19 in the following manner:

ZAPU was founded on December 17, 1916, which gives us 12+17+17; then becomes 3+8+8=19.

ZAPU equals 19 according to so-called Pythagorean numerology.

Joshua Nkomo was born on June 19, 1917.

The name Joshua equals 379 according to Hebrew Gematria based on the Hebrew alphabet. 379=3+7+9=19.

We also observe the number 19 in his birthdate.

Furthermore June 19th is governed by the Gemini zodiac sign. Gemini equals 19 under Chaldean numerology.

The date of his death on July 1, 1999 took place during the Cancer zodiac cycle.  Cancer equals 19 according to the Chaldean numerology cipher.

The military wing of ZAPU is the Zimbabwe People’s Revolutionary Army also known as ZIPRA.

ZIPRA equals 19 under Chaldean numerology.

Bob Marley & The Wailers support of Zimbabwe was the synchronistic merging of different conduits of the Black Cat Archetype 19.

Marley and Mugabe, the ruler of Zimbabwe at the time have individual and collective commonalities.

Both are named Robert, however Mugabe was not at least in public referred to as “Bob”.

Both were born in the month of February, which is Black History Month in the United States, Canada and Jamaica.

They both share in the collective relationship to Leo zodiac.  Bob Marley hails from Jamaica, which achieved its nominal independence from Britain on August 6, 1962.

August 6, 1962 falls under the Leo zodiac.

ZANU, the organization  would come to lead was founded during the Leo zodiac cycle on August 8, 1963.

The prime minister of Britain during the time of Zimbabwe’s independence was James Callaghan. Callaghan’s full name is Leonard James Callaghan.

The name “Leonard” is embedded in the esoteric signatures of the Black Cat Archetype 19.

Leonard  means “brave lion”, “strength of lion” or “lion hearted”.

The  shortened form of Leonardo is Leo, which is the name of the 5th zodiac sign and whose symbol is the LION.

Bob Marley has numerous connections to the Black Cat Archetype 19.

His going to Zimbabwe to assist in the independence celebrations was a coming home of sorts for Bob Marley.

Marley represented a member of the African Diaspora returning to his ancestral homeland in a significantly meaningful manner.

Marley was also returning to home of the Black Cat Archetype 19 that he deeply embodied.

Marley wrote the song “Zimbabwe” for the people of Zimbabwe as well as for those supporting the liberation struggle of all African people.

The memory of his performance and his connection to the people of Zimbabwe is eternally etched in time.

Marley, Mugabe and the entire Zimbabwean struggle for independence was a “Black Cat” affair.

Going to Zimbabwe was a spiritual journey for Bob Marley, evidenced by the repeated esoteric manifestation of the number 11 in activities associated with his Zimbabwe mission.

The number 11 is the numerical value for the word “Black” in both Chaldean and so-called Pythagorean numerology systems.

Black and Blackness are spiritual processes in relating to the cosmos.

Thus we have “Black Magic”,  and “Black Arts” .

The fact that word Black equals 11 and 11 is the number of spiritual revealation, is beyond profound.

11 is the number of the natural mystic. Natural Mystic is the title of one of Bob Marley’s most popular songs.

According to the web site http://www.secretofthetarot.


“Angel number 11 represents a transmutation of your personal power to a higher, more spiritual level.

Master Number 11 is associated with spiritual illumination and our ‘inner teacher.’ Angel number 11 reveals that we have great powers of intuition which makes us highly empathetic.”

The themes explored in his song Zimbabwe as well as the album Survival, provide lessons for those who can listen and understand “the natural mystic, blowing in the air.”
