Our celebrity birthday for April is the power-house singer, director, songwriter and activist Barbra Streisand. Born in the builder-vibration month of 4 (April), Streisand is certainly the depiction of the strong and grounded builder illustrated in her voice and her physical being.
To attempt a numerology reading for Barbra Streisand is easy, because her name and birthdate is all about power. Barbra’s chart is dominated by the power number 8 and the spiritual non-comformist number of 7.
Barbara Streisand numerology focus: — “Power”
Born April 24, 1942, Streisand’s destiny (birthdate added up) is a 26/8 (4+2+4+1+9+4+2 = 26. 2+6 = 8). The eight as destiny or life purpose, is all about connecting with the world as a charismatic leader and is destined to be famous, successful and abundant. (Note: Not everyone who has an eight will be as successful as Barbra, but will usually be strong personalities and leaders.)
As Barbra Streisand, her name change adds uniqueness
Born as Barbara Joan Streisand, the singer quickly realized at age 18 that she wanted to be unique and authentic. “Barbra” suited her much better than Barbara in her mind. About the slight name change from Barbara to Barbra she is quoted as saying, “I didn’t want to change my name because that was too false.”
Let’s take a look at what the slight name change did numerologically. It is not a drastic change but does add the unique flavor to her expression and the way she comes across. To analyze her name charts, we look at three core views. The top view, called the “soul number” (the vowels added together) is your inner being, what is inside of you. The middle view, called the “Value System number” (consonants added together) describes what you are attracted to. The final number, the “expression number”, represents how you express yourself.
Here is the chart break down. Her full name at birth, Barbara Joan Streisand, produced a quiet, private and almost introverted inner being soul number of 7 with the creative 3 expression number. (See chart above as an illustration.) The seven is all about being unique, yet in the position of soul number, she could have stage fright and perhaps have an inner pull to hide.
As “Barbara Streisand” (see chart below), her expression number is an 8 which is a powerful and charismatic expression. Her value number is 44/8 – a master number all about manifestation and power. In this name, her soul number (her inner being) is a nine, which is all about transformation, universal compassion and often analytical. This combination of numbers give her the drive to always be perfecting her performance.
Keep in mind that even if we change our names, we will always have our birth name vibrations. The added names will be kind of like frosting on a cake. By dropping one letter, the “Barbra” vibration changes her birth vibration slightly and gives her exactly what she wanted. With Barbra, she now has a charismatic and powerful 8 in her soul number and the 44/8 in her value systems. In the expression number, the 7 shows up once again, but with the eights to support her, it becomes pure unique and spiritual expression. It is that authentic quality that is in her voice and her being that can only be Barbra Streisand.
