Every year on the 1st of April we celebrate April fools!
April fools is a 1/4 in Numerology and it has this vibration each Year. This 2019 is a 3 year which equates to a year of joy, passion and greatly exercising ones creativity and inner fire in a way that has to lead to happiness and joy!
A Spot of History on How April Fools day came to be ..
There is a bit of mystery as to where it all originated.
April Fools is thought to possibly come from the ancient festival called Hilaria. It was also linked to the first day of Spring and the Equinox, where the weather being between two seasons, could be entirely unpredictable.
It is even thought to be affiliated to Halloween, a winter festival that embraces ‘fun’ in the dark - whereas this is much lighter in spirit and involves light hearted pranking with the rebirth of the sun.
Originally April fools is even thought to go back to the transition from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. This was when the beginning of the year was moved from the 1st of April to the 1st of January. Supposedly in the 16th century when the changeover from the calendars occurred, some were slow to realize this and were still celebrating the new year on the 1st of April, and they were shamed for this and called April fools!
April Fools Day is celebrated annually on April 1st and the pranks have to be laughed at to be considered successful. Thus if there isn’t any laughter the April fools trick has not been perceived to have worked!
Another school of thought believes it even goes back to the Canterbury Tales by Chaucer, whereby March ‘32 ‘is the date mentioned - Some feel it may just have been a misprint and simply meaning the end of March.
What ever the history, people still celebrate the day by playing April fools jokes and by dubbing the person as an ‘April fool’ should the prank or joke have been successful. Dubbing someone the fool on this day is what the merriment is all about.
11 countries specifically celebrate it and each have a slightly different take on it -
The common essence is the consistency of a joke or prank being played and the need for laughter afterwards.
-In Ireland it’s only celebrated until 12, after that time the jokes are frowned upon!
-In Scotland it’s celebrated for two days! it’s called Goga day and people placed tails on each others backs for fun or to be dubbed the fool!
-In USA its about fake tv news for the day.
-In France people put fish images on peoples backs usually an activity for children
- In the UK people only play pranks till noon
-In India children love to trick their friends
-In Brazil it is called ‘the day of the lie’
-In Greece they predict that if you succeed to trick someone the person will have a good year.
-In Italy, same as in France, the children also prank friends by attaching a fish to friends backs
-In Poland there is a phrase used saying be wary if you don’t want to fall victim to the tricks
-In Sweden, when you are successful in tricking someone, you just shout I tricked you J
April fools and the Tarot
By looking at the old tradition of calling the 1st of April the 32nd of March, we work out the April fools vibration to be a 5. This 5 vibration is mirrored on both ends. By adding 3+2 we get a 5. By adding the 1st of April (1 + 4th month) we still get a 5.
The 5 vibration is the rebel, the life questioner, which ties in with the witty and funny aspect of the pranking.
The Fool in the Major Arcana card depicts this :
The Fool bursts forth seeking new experiences of joy and new beginnings. Thus there can be a reckless and jester aspect to this card. It represents the fool and innocent in all of us. By considering ourselves as the journeyman, the card challenges us to be courageous, have faith and laugh at ourselves a little. It requires us to be light and have joy in the new beginnings. It asks us to have humor.
The 1 energy of the 1st of April is about the pioneering, standing out, and stepping into the role of the magician and the trickster! The 1 is the individualistic twist of energy and vibe around the April 1 pranking. It is the personal ownership that we take of the pranks and the jokes we play on others. It is on devising and creating them with the hope that we create laughter as an end result! The Magician is the Magus within all of us. The one who juggles all the elements -the written word, ones will power, innate wisdom and new Ideas. And looking at the magician tarot card in reverse, it can mean trickery, which is the aim of the day.
The 5 card in Tarot is called the Hierophant. The card represents the secret keeper. The one who has the secret knowledge of creation, and shares this knowledge only with a select few. Knowledge after all grants you power. The card depicts the Pope with two monks bowing at his feet. Each is clothed differently, one in a robe covered with roses, the other in vegetation. This represents the unique knowledge each has learned from the Hierophant and the secret keeper. No Joke or prank is complete without the secret knowledge of it, and sharing it with the select few to be included or a part of it. This is what the Hierophant represents.
The Numerology if this day is a 1/4 and is quite a complex vibration-
The 1 archetype is about self expression, individually, the pioneering of new ideas and April Fools’ Day is a fab day for fun and tricks, new pranks and laughter!
The 4 is the more serious vibration and is the number that talks to integrity, stability, responsibility and taking ownership of ones actions. It talks to the fact that we all need to analyse whether our prank is innocent or whether it could be misinterpreted as something cruel and to the detrimental expense of someone else.
One is all about being leader and acting on creative Ideas. Its about being in alignment with your purpose and will. Its about being an original thinker and owning and shaping these thoughts into reality.
The complexity of the number vibration comes into play when our playful ideas that victimize a person for the sake of a joke needs to be owned. Where we need to tell the truth and own that it was us that created the prank. This is the manifestation of the 4 vibration. It asks us to consider whether the person would consider the prank in gest, or take it personally and be affronted by the act. Its asking us to be accountable and honorable in our deeds.
The ¼ vibration is the perfect Combination of the prankster and the analyst.
This years 3 vibration should add to the joyful and the fun aspects of the day!
So should you celebrate April fools this year… be inventive, creative, light hearted and make sure to keep it playful.
Happy New Year to you all haha -April Fool :P
A-on Star is born… Lady Gaga 28 March 1986
Literally this is the perfect title to the perfect star: Lady Gaga!
Her Numerology is that of a Star and a super talented creative human being. She is my chosen lady of fame for March and an excellent example of pure creativity, passion and joy, which is a March number trait. March being a vibrant and fiery 3 vibration which brings boundless creativity to the people born in this month!
Lady Gaga has been compared to Madonna and is self proclaimed to be a ‘Changing Work of Art’ which for me truly depicts her as a person and we can see this manifested in her birth numbers.
Lady Gaga was born on 28 March 1986. This makes her a 1/3/6 with a 1 soul path number in her birth Numerology. We work these numbers out by adding all the double digits to form a single digit. eg. 2+8=10 and 1+0=1. To work out the soul path number we add all the digits together to get to a single digit (1+3+6=10 and 1+0=1).
Each of these numbers have a shadow or subliminal aspect to the number that when combined will add to 9. To make this simpler, we take 9 and subtract the upfront numbers and we are left with the shadow number. In Lady Gaga's case, 9-1=8; 9-3=6 and 9-6=3
Thus, a 1 as her individual number (her date), has a shadow number of an 8. Her 3 in her family number (her month) has a shadow number 6. The 6 in her career and her world (her year) has a shadow number 3. She has a repeated 1/8 in her Life Path and it is also her Soul Purpose Number.
Her double 1 influence makes her highly individualistic as a person because its doubly magnified as her individual number and also as her life path number. The life path number is considered to be the number that defines your souls journey in this life. Thus, personality wise, she would oscillate between her ‘upfront’ number 1 and her ‘shadow’ number 8.
Her outrageous, provocative, outgoing, double 1 personality depicts her need to be highly Individualistic and provides her with an enigmatic power that she can use to shape and create her world and the perceptions around her.
Her monetary success comes from her double 8 aspect and could also indicate an obsession around the need to create wealth and to build and leave a legacy for herself-this being a very 8 trait!
Her 3 aspect makes her passionate, creative and super talented. Thus her choosing to be a performer is a perfect career and life choice for her.
As a 3 , she will be challenged to work extremely hard for her success, though the 3 vibration will also imbue her with the necessary skills and tools to succeed.
In her world and career she is a 6, being the lover, the idealist and the dreamer. It is also the number of the humanitarian-which we see expressed through her ‘Born This Way’ Foundation.
The Born This Way Foundation helps people that are born with mental or physical illnesses and disabilities. She has been seen to get involved with the Special Olympics and also well known to support causes for women’s rights and to help women speak up about sexual harassment and abuse.
Lady Gaga is particularly topical at the moment as she won an Oscar award for “Best Actress” for her performance in the movie ‘A star is Born’ and for her fabulous duet with Bradley Cooper called ‘Shallow’ -This is indeed an ode to her double 1 personality.
LADY GAGA NUMEROLOGY BLUEPRINT
1/8 as her own innate persona and also being repeated as her Life /Soul path number; the 1/8 vibration is a highlighted aspect of her personality and character.
1 is about new beginnings and rebirthing. It is about being adaptable and on your feet, self reliant and able to change. It is the magician, the creator, the visionary and the leader.
These Aspects align perfectly with Lady Gaga being such a unique star – always reinventing herself, changing, evolving and ultimately becoming what the audience wants her to be, without loosing who she truly is!
1’s often come into this life with some trauma and need to learn to overcome their own demons. They can have self-esteem issues which can manifest in depression and eating disorders (she has been known to have had these).
This is very typical of a 1 persona where it is important to work through these issues and on oneself. This can be difficult in ‘stardom’ as one is forced to be a certain way in public. A star has to be seen to shine.
Another obvious 1 attribute is her provocative way of dress and her funky and outrageous hairstyles. She always stands out uniquely and makes a statement. The need to be an individual in a crowd is so important for this vibration. Being the leader, the pioneer, the risk taker and highly individualistic, trend setter is a very ‘1’ attribute .
We do also need to look at the other angle of the 1 vibration, that being the internal 1 character.
Her internal world would be one which can require solitude and privacy- and indeed this can lead to being lonely and becoming depressed. In order to deal with this attribute she requires to find balance between her outer persona with her internal world. This is part of the 1/8 journey.
1’s love to be “out there” and love starting new things.
1’s accommodate change, yet have an innate fear of endings and death. In fact, Lady Gaga speaks of her relationship with her auntie Joanne who died at a tender age of 19 and her sensitivity towards that- So much so that she dedicated her music album called Joanne, after her.
1s have a very perfectionistic side to them and have an attitude that can accomplish almost anything they put their minds to.
As a young girl she would have perhaps had some low self-esteem issues and would have been incredibly hard on herself. The 1’s natural ‘I’m alone in this’ feeling would have made her feel different and somewhat isolated. However, 1’s have a ‘never give up’ attitude that would have taught her to concentrate on her skills and talents and push through. This strength would have served as a pathway for her to get where she is now.
Growing up, 1’s have the innate ability to view most of life as a singular experience: This teaches them a sense of self awareness and that they feel that ‘they are responsible for every outcome’. This in turn would have given her courage, bravery and even have pushed her to accept and celebrate her differences, thus expressing them in her unique appearance.
The 1/8 persona theme, represents new beginnings in the number 1 and things coming to an end in the number 8.
8s are known to be inflexible, to resist change and they don’t like to end things... or begin new things for that matter. Knowing when to cut and when to continue to complete things is an oscillation of the 1/8. The 1s cut and the 8s hold on. So 8s need to learn when to start afresh! This is prevalent in her life and her relationships.
The 8 is where power and wealth creation is key. 8s prefer to ‘stay’ often finding it difficult to make impulsive or ‘from the hip’ decisions.
They have often had difficult lives as children and have either been bullied or harassed.
They find change absolutely frightening and we often see a pattern with the 8 character- they would possibly stay in the ‘wrong’ career or relationship because ‘rather the devil you know’, than make ultimate changes to their lives. This means that they can sometimes appear to be and get completely stuck.
The number 8 vibration does have to do with fame, money and power. 8’s often become obsessed with accruing wealth, with creating an empire and leaving a legacy. Sometimes this 'need' becomes so important that it can be to the detriment of themselves, their health and their well-being. The 8 energy needs to learn to balance these things with living a full life. This being one of the fundamental lessons to learn for an 8.
It in fact requires a pattern change. One that will teach them that they can have it all! They need to realise and believe that they can have a stable career, a beautiful life, a beautiful relationship and happiness. All they have to do is accept change and evolve making these changes. Change is inevitable and necessary.
8’s need to learn to hand over their incessant need to control. They need to learn to delegate and realise that they could achieve every result quicker, with a little bit of help sometimes!
In conclusion 1/8
Looking at her numbers from this angle, she needs to learn to balance these traits so as not to burn out. 1's need to afford themselves the space to figure things out and then bounce back with enthusiasm.
People with a 1 life path need to ensure all points of view are looked at and at times need to work on their confidence, tolerance and patience.
1's usually have had tough starts and have had to learn from the school of knocks . They can suffer damage from their earlier failures and dwell on it. 1's thrive in a competitive environment, can be rebellious and yet be very 'achievements' focused. They do need to be careful of depressive phases and slipping into dark times. Thus, 1's need to Integrate with the 8 side, which is about success, control, money and authority to live a full and happy life.
8s love and thrive on power and need to learn to stand strong and develop ethics and integrity in achieving their status. 8s like to have a castle and build an empire.
At times they are blunt and opinionated but often much more sensitive and vulnerable than they actually appear.
Because money is so important to an 8, it is excellent that Lady Gaga has her 6's to balance the ‘me, me, me’ and ‘money, money, money’ qualities. Her 6 vibration redirects this energy into her joy of giving to others and her philanthropic causes.
The 6 aspect indeed provides a firm platform for her Foundation and her innate need to make a difference to the lives of others. This vibration assists her to spread kindness to those in need.
The 3's within her Blueprint, are the vibrations that drive her passion, her fire and her hard working side. It is the dedication and the energy that drives her creativity. Her 3 can also be the highly volatile side of her personality, which is not without outbursts especially when stressed or emotional.
3’s are always needing to self-express and are highly emotional and sensitive beings. They are excellent at performance and communication but need to find their joy and passion, and for this to be directed appropriately!
3's can at times be happy and rational and then swing to fears and self-doubts -So they need to keep positive and keep perspective and can suffer a lot of highs and lows emotionally. They need to let this fire out creatively.
Lady Gaga is indeed in her perfect career and doing well. However, as a younger person she may have found it hard to express herself at times, because of the volatility and emotionality of the number 3. 3 is a number with aspects that can succumb to depression and feelings of being overwhelmed. 3's therefore need to learn how to control their emotions and at times their tempers and stressful outbursts.
Lady Gaga needs to learn to balance her fame with living her life. She will have to learn to handle criticism along the way...
This would have been a massive lesson to master and especially at times of high anxiety. She would have faced internal ‘shut downs’ with bouts of depression.
We saw her receiving her Oscar where she showed both humility, dignity as well as her highly emotional side. Finding the balance between her highly strung, highly emotional 3 self and the 6 shadow number which is more self-aware and self nurturing would be her lesson with this set of numbers.
She would need to balance being too hard working to the point of exhaustion (something she could easily fall into this pattern when wanting to succeed) with finding time to rest and rejuvenate. She would need to learn to redirect some of that energy and to invest it back into no one other than herself.
It is about learning to balance her work life with her playtime. Lady Gaga, as a 3, could easily have workaholic tendencies and would find it hard to know when to rest, relax and keep the balance between her career and her personal life.
The soft 6 side is her romantic and nostalgic side- Her love for her daughter, her mom, her late aunt and the importance of her family. This being the balance to her 3 traits and the upfront number for her world.
Her love for her Foundation and for her causes are very aligned to her 6 Humanitarian ways. Her own foundation for children born with mental or physical defects called ‘Born This Way’, showcases the 6’s need to make life better for themselves and others. The 6 vibration finds joy in the dream of a better, kinder and more loving world.
6’s need to learn to see the bigger picture and are generally very nurturing. They are supported by their love for a full and kind home life, concerned with domestic responsibility, and revel in beauty and in justice. They like to take on a lot of responsibility from an early age and work hard to keep the peace.
6’s are often artistically gifted and will use these gifts to make the world a more beautiful place. With Lady Gaga’s number 3 passion, fire, talent and dedication, coupled with the beauty of the 6, we can see why she is a marvel and a true winner in her field.
6's love to be praised and acknowledged and do better with gentle advice rather than full-on criticism. They take things very personally even if the criticism is meant to be constructive they can hold it internally .
6's are idealistic in life and believe that fairy tales do exist. They endeavour to create this fairy tale in life, even if it may seem impossible. Their hope, faith and their dream of beauty is sometimes enough to create it for themselves and everyone around them.
6's need to understand that it’s mostly about uniqueness rather than absolute perfection. There is a need for 6's to learn from their mistakes and not to beat themselves up over them. The idealist can be remarkably self-critical. Self-forgiveness is essential to release this feeling and pattern. The 6 vibration needs to learn to live by a simple motto: ‘the sun will shine just a bit brighter for me tomorrow’.
In conclusion of 3/6 and 6/3
The 3/6 and 6/3 vibration needs to learn to balance work and play. They need to learn to not be let down by the high standards they set for themselves. They need to be careful not to become disillusioned, fatalistic or self righteous and learn to tend to the positive things in their lives that provide them with hope and joy.
Hoping you enjoyed my interpretation of the wonderful Lady Gaga -she is truly an inspiration and a fabulous person.
