Numerology: What Does It Mean for the Presidential Candidates?
While most people look at polls and news coverage to judge whether a candidate is in the lead, numerologists have a different way of breaking down a contender’s chances.
Numerology is the study of the meaning of numbers. In the same way words are associated with a definition, numbers are associated with a set of key words in numerology. Gabrielle explains that the numbers 1 through 9 have very specific meanings that have been handed down from the systems she studies.
Here’s what the numbers say about the presidential candidates and the election, according to Gabrielle:
• Obama’s name adds up to a powerful number—the immortality number of 17/8. This means his legacy will resonate long after he passes away. McCain’s life-purpose number (which he shares with Obama) and day-of-birth numbers both reduce to 11, which means McCain has nervous energy that will fuel his novel ideas.
• Some of Obama’s numbers connect him to John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King Jr., which is worrisome to Gabrielle, while McCain shares numbers in a positive light with Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, and more.
• After the numbers for Election Day, November 4, 2008, are broken down, the date turns out to be an ominous number: Voting takes place on a fateful day and year—the numbers 4 and 8 are considered fateful—and the month reduces to a “victim number.” One of many possibilities is that the day represents “a fall from a high place,” which symbolizes a fatality and defeat of plans.
• The 11 in the life-purpose number represents a born leader or teacher. The numbers show that either Obama or McCain has the potential to win. With danger surrounding Obama and the potential of a looming world war, says Gabrielle, the numbers predict John McCain will be the next president.
