Numerology & the Number 7 and Why it’s Often Not as Lucky as You Might Think
If you were born on the 7th, unfortunately, it doesn't mean you're lucky.
The Negative Side of The Number 7
The number 7 on a numerology personality or cyclical timing level is most often associated with humiliation, fear, delays, anxiety, solitude, exhaustive self-examination, fall from grace, lowered physical vitality, illness, drinking/drugging, ill-advised relationships, emotional blockage, repression, being misunderstood, attracting romantic partners that have drug and or alcohol problems, nervousness, and lack of recognition (feeling invisible).
Other difficulties and negatives related to the number 7 are as follows: lack of trust in others, isolation, aloofness, pessimism, elitism, sarcasm, lack of humor, pride, skepticism, paranoia, talent for mind games, cynicism, totally removed from the mainstream of life, depression, "brick wall-type" (meaning not personable), icy exterior, intolerance, and reticence.
The Positive Side of The Number 7
However, as every number has a balanced or "high side," 7 is strongly associated with "inner-world" pursuits, details, clairvoyance, telepathy, prophesy, inner growth, intuition, uncovering truth, wisdom, spiritual studies, original solutions, intelligence, someone who is outgoing and expressive when the conversation turns to deeper subjects but who avoids small talk, refinement, discernment, enjoyment of solitude (due in part because 7-types are often in communication with other dimensions whether they're conscious of it or not), psychic/secret/intelligence work, "x-ray vision," acute powers of perception, recognition for scientific or spiritual achievement, honor, cool detachment and reserve, refined beauty, brilliance, unsolicited gifts and rewards, mental and cerebral pursuits, logic through deep analysis, ability to successfully dissect complex issues, dignity, very subtle and quick mind, automatically "knowing" things without knowing how he/she knows, striving for excellence, spiritual initiation, thoroughness, and inquisitiveness.
Unusual Energy Associated With The Number 7
It's true that the energy associated with the number 7 is some of the most unpredictable energy (along with that relating to the number 9, and Master Numbers such as 11, 22, 33, etc.) and that it's of a "different wavelength."
People with lots of 7 in their personality charts are frequently thought of as being from a different planet. The 7 represents other-worldly and other-dimensional energy. Think of people with a lot of 7 energy as how fish might view turtles that frequent both land and sea; unusual to say the least. Heavy 7-types are physically here, but often they're preoccupied other things, like the whisperings in their ears from invisible beings.
The Number 7 and Timing--Very Often Challenging
As a timing aspect, depending upon in which position in the charts it is found, it's more often than not symbolic of a rough period of time. This is especially true in regards to the romantic and emotional areas of life, and for those who direct the bulk of their energy and attention toward material interests instead of faith, spirituality, personal growth, wisdom, and "inner world" pursuits.
Over 400 different personality and timing aspects comprise the various charts of a typical comprehensive numerology system.
Patterns (i.e., multiple corroborating aspects) signify character, life events and circumstances, although single aspects also hold significance.
7 As a Day of Birth Number
The Day of Birth number is, by itself, a very important timing and personality aspect. The 7 as a Day of Birth number is frequently rewarding for those in the following lines of work: science, spirituality, film, occult, teaching, metaphysical, advisory, examination, technical, refined art, forestry/nature preserve, over-seas travel, shipping, critical analysis, writing, research, philosophy, precision craftsmanship, analysis, invention, investigative, espionage, intelligence, secret work, and other highly specialized work.
