WHITNEY HOUSTON: NUMBERS
[This article is neither designed to either
extol or defame Whitney Houston.
Its purpose is simply to study the correlation between one's numbers, life and destiny.]
Fortune does not change
men, it unmasks them.
Suzanne Necker - 18th Century French writer
Vast and vicious is this
mesh of Illusion
whose intricate tentacles suck one dry.
Saint Namdev - 13th Century Mystic
Known as "The Voice," WHITNEY ELIZABETH HOUSTON (born: 9 August 1963), has had as troubled and sad a life as she and her voice are beautiful - blessed beyond imagination on the one hand with fame, fortune, wealth, beauty and talent but cursed on the other with out-of-control behavior, self-destructive addictions, difficulties with male energy and seemingly relentless turmoil. Happenstance? No. As we have learned, nothing is happenstance in this bipolar world of cause and effect where everything has two sides, one positive; one negative. The key to living a successful life rests in how balanced, contented and harmonious a life we make for ourselves amidst the positive and the negative back and forth swaying of the Great Cosmic Pendulum regardless of wealth, status, celebrity, fame, riches, beauty or power.
Whitney Houston's voice can bring any sentient human being to tears. It is a gift of enormous proportions. Yet, Whitney Houston's troubled life will bring any sentient human being not just to tears but to an ocean of sadness for the woman who is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and film producer. Why has she been so blessed and so cursed? Numbers, as always, tell the tale.
Whitney Houston's Nature and Material Nature are both Fives: a 59/14/5 root structure in her Nature and a 95/14/5 root structure in her Material Nature. This 5 energy, particularly with the 59 and 95 binary roots are responsible for her diversity of talent. No two numbers are more public than the 5 and 9, and no two binaries reveal more diversity than the 59 and its mirrored image, the 95. The number 5 is the most versatile number in the Alpha-Numeric Spectrum. It moves, changes, explores, experiments and can be wild and "senses seeking." Five is also the number of man, freedom and slavery, its polar opposites. Because of its ability to move, experience, remain unrestrained and free, the great lesson of the 5 is to be disciplined, self-controlled and temperate lest it enslave the individual rather than bring him or her to a place of true freedom and liberation. This sense of slavery-generated freedom has been exacerbated by
Whitney Houston's Basic Matrix is not a direct indicator of her vocal beauty, musical success or addictions. For that we have to look to her Inclusion Table, Chapter 14 of The King's Book of Numerology, Volume 1: Foundations & Fundamentals. She has 33 in her 3rd House and 66 in her 5th House. In Number News edition #60 in December of 2006, we discussed how the Master Number 33 could lead one to great heights of self-expression or great depths of sensual indulgence and addiction. Thirty-three in the 3rd House of communication, pleasure, joy, beauty, health and disease has given
The core (Grand Pinnacle) of Whitney Houston's 9 Lifepath of the public stage (The King's Book of Numerology II: Forecasting - Part 1) is a 44/8, a powerful master number of success through work. A 9 Lifepath with a 44/8 core exudes commercial achievement in the public realm. But it must be remembered that
Another major indication of her success in life is the 1/8 Influence-Reality combination. It's in her 1st Challenge, Grand Challenge (3rd) and Core Challenge (4th). This 1/8 is also found in her Crown (4th) Pinnacle and 3rd (final) Epoch, thus creating a powerhouse quintstack (five stack) of 1/8 energy! It is highly unusual to have this many of the same IR (Influence/Reality) set in one chart. The 1 represents the Yang aspect of life - the self, ego, males, leadership, action. The 8 represents flow, interaction, connection/disconnection, success, comfort. In effect, the 1/8 combination is success of the self, as entrepreneurial as it gets.
Interestingly, it is this 1/8 IR set in her 1st Challenge, Grand and Crown Challenges that reflects her problems with male energy, i.e. her ex-husband, Bobby Brown. Of note, this is the same Challenge triad found in Oprah Winfrey's chart! She also has a 1/8 1st Challenge, Grand Challenge and Crown Challenge. Additionally, she has a 1/8 2nd Epoch while
Numbers are science. They give a logical explanation to life. As Pythagoras said: "Numbers rule the universe; everything is arranged according to number and mathematical shape."
Just this brief showcase of Whitney Houston's chart reveals the facts of her famous but troubled life. With her sad and tragic demise, our prayers are that her soul find solace in a higher power as it moves onward in its existence.
Our prayers are also offered to those still living, that the reality of Whitney Houston's life is that drugs destroy - life, careers and relationships. For those who truly honor her life and legacy, let them also honor the reality that unrestrained sensual indulgence, especially in the use of drugs and alcohol, will destroy that which is beautiful and timeless. This is offered in the hope that her life will not only inspire great artists to follow their dreams and achieve them, but also potentially save them from the same troubled life and tragic fate. May Whitney Elizabeth Houston forever rest in peace.

Listen to the actions.
Listen not to words.
Actions root intent.
Words fly away like birds.
Actions tell the story;
while words, false stories tell.
Actions pave the
words, the road to Hell.
Actions bind the honest;
words, dishonest, bind.
Actions give true vision;
words make vision blind.
While actions may confirm
Words, actions oft betray.
Thus, listen to the actions
and cast the words away.
