The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin has passed from our world but will never leave our hearts or spirit.
It is with great sorrow that I write this Aretha Franklin numerology tribute. She was influential to my growth as a teenager in the late 60s. I learned pride as a woman and caring about issues beyond my protective family’s cocoon. To me, she symbolized strength and being unafraid to share my creative passion. Singing and dancing to ‘Respect’ as loud as I could with my friends, was a popular pastime.
In August 2016, a few friends and I went to her concert in Massachusetts. Aretha’s demeanor was slower than usual as she was led on stage by her loving musicians and back up singers. She talked openly about her illness and healing journey. And then she sang and played piano in her soulful way. There was not a dry eye in the house and a standing ovation throughout the entire performance.
Franklin’s career of over 60 years was one of groundbreaking record hits and Grammy Awards. Songs like ‘Respect’ (written by Otis Redding) and ‘Natural Woman’ (written by Carol King) are immensely popular to this day.
From early on in her childhood as a gospel singer to the end of her life, Aretha was a symbol of feminism and civil rights. She led the way for musicians and entertainers to influence their audience through song.
Aretha Franklin Numerology Tribute
We are all born with certain qualities based on our DNA, upbringing and environmental experiences. What we do with our gifts, is up to us.
Numerology is an esoteric science based on numbers that examine the qualities and life path lessons that we are here to experience. We discover our numbers by looking at our birthdate and the name/s we are called. Aretha Franklin numerology charts exemplify how one person can utilize every inch of her gifts. Her numbers illustrate a love of life in all of its potential. Obstacles did not hold her back.
Aretha’s Destiny Numbers
To find the destiny, add all the birth numbers together:
3+2+5+1+9+4+2 =26. 2+6=8
The 8 destiny (or life purpose) is the charismatic, powerful, and successful leader and performer. Aretha was out there in the world, enjoying herself, replacing any fear she might have with her love of music and enchanting her audience. Stepping out on stage, she shared her magnificence and vivacious spirit.
Aretha also had a 1 catalyst or inspiration number. (the birth month and date added together = 3+2+5=10/1) The one catalyst is inspired by pioneering the way with their ideas and values. Franklin was inspired by moving her audience and by connecting to what is important.
“Being the Queen is not all about singing, and being a diva is not all about singing. It has much to do with your service to people. And your social contributions to your community and your civic contributions as well.” — Aretha
Aretha’s Numerology Name chart
Aretha Franklin’s name illustrates much power as well. As you can see in the two charts below, 8 again shows up in soul’s essence (in Aretha Franklin) as well as personality number in her full birth name Aretha Louise Franklin. Embracing her power allowed her to be the diva she became as well as empowering others to express their passion inside. Fours (4) also appear in her numbers, giving her the ability to build, to organize and to accomplish in every aspect, from writing, producing and being on stage. Of course, the 3 in expression has the characteristic of creative communication in every form – singing, performing, playing piano, and writing.
Master number 66/3
The most striking number in Aretha Franklin’s numerology chart is the master 66/3 expression number. Master numbers occur when two digits are the same. They are considered ‘in mastery’ because it represents double the influence of the number. 6 is compassion, love, community, and healing. It is the strong value of family, community, and service. 66 is the master healer and compassionate being that makes a difference in the world with their song (the 3).
As Franklin shared in her 1999 autobiography, about her most popular hit song ‘Respect’ (written by Otis Redding)
“It was the need of a nation, the need of the average man and woman in the street, the businessman, the mother, the fireman, the teacher — everyone wanted respect. It was also one of the battle cries of the civil rights movement. The song took on monumental significance.” (Read more this here)
