David Bowie Numerology – A Rockstar Icon who broke the mold
“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” —David Bowie
The passing of English rock star, David Bowie on January 10, 2016 brought so many of us baby boomers to a thoughtful pause. His persona was a shock to many of us as he emerged on the scene in the 60s. Times had changed. Music was an announcement to the world of who we were, who we stood for and how bold we could be.
Step in, David Bowie, born with the name David Robert Jones on January 8, 1947. He began his rise in rock music stardom with his wild make-up and audacious performances on stage. He was, for us, an example of being out there as a non-conformist, seemingly enjoying every moment.
When choosing his stage name, his manager told him “no one is going to make a monkey out of you“. So rather than be mistaken for Davy Jones of the Monkees, he chose the last name of folk hero, defender of the Alamo, Jim Bowie.
(*The Man Who Fell From Earth was a 1976 movie starring Bowie as an alien in search of water on the planet Earth.)

By analyzing the two different names on David Bowie’s numerology charts below, it is clear how a name can have an effect that shifts one’s outlook or can add a new skill. Numerology shows an alter ego appear when comparing the two names.
David Robert Jones
As David Robert Jones, he had a 5 soul essence number, a 5 value number and a 1 expression number. Clearly a leader (1) in anything he set out to do, the 5s helped him to be the charming, energetic, extremely sexual and entertaining chameleon.
As David Bowie, we see the very different vibrations of 3/1/4. Here he is a creative (3)/independent leader (1) and a builder (4). The four helped him achieve any character creation in a methodical way. So while he appeared as wild and free as the fives can be, he was meticulous in his approach as singer, song writer and producer. He may have been wild and crazy, yet he always looked neat and impeccable in whatever costume he had on.
“I’m a collector. I collect personalities” —David Bowie
And certainly we were entertained by the many personalities— from his sci-fi Ziggy Stardust character to actor portraying alien, to singing joyfully with Mick Jagger in Dancing in the Street (see video).
Many celebrities have changed their names (see Marilyn Monroe) for a variety of reasons. Most reasons are to appear in the public in a more attractive way. But if you have a middle name or a nickname, there is a good chance that you will have many sides of your personality (some helpful and some challenging).
