Why all the Fuss? - Cycles of Fame
by Angelli Mansfield
Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio was born on November 11, 1974 to " '60s hippies who separated before Leo was born. He was named Leonardo after his pregnant mom paid a visit to an Italian museum. While admiring a daVinci painting at the Uffizzi Gallery in Florence, she felt a big kick from the baby--and little Leo was thus monikered."
What is it about this 24 year old man that has made him "the most popular person on the planet" according to a recent e-online internet spokesperson? Why him and why now? Sure he's beautiful to look at but so is most everyone else in Hollywood. Is he just lucky? If so, back to my first question - Why? Where does "star quality" come from? That charisma that just beams out of a person without any effort. Billions of dollars are spent each year trying to create it and harness it for public consumption.
I'll give you the answer and then I'll explain it using his NumberQuest numerology chart. The answer is this; 11,11,11,11. But that's not all! It's his particular combination of numbers that is most revealing and that tells me he will be BIG for a long time to come.
Leonardo's NumberQuest Numerology report:
Name Analysis: Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio
The Expression number shows us who we truly are, what we came into this life already knowing. This is where we feel most comfortable and how we automatically act. We attract people and situations to us that require our Expression so that they can further evolve. In this way we play the role of teacher. Naturally we are attracted to occupations that we resonate to, so the Expression number can be a strong factor in our choice of a career as well. Our Expression is the vehicle, with all its virtues and vices, that drives us along the path of our Destiny. It is the essence of our identity.
Yours is the path of the mind. Silence and solitude are your doorways into the deep recesses of the mind and the universe. You are the philosopher, the analyst, the seeker and if you'd be willing, the teacher. The time and energy that you spend discovering the microscopic core of things has gifted you with the ability to tap into psychic energy. It is with this energy that you can separate the true from the false.
Leonardo DiCaprio is ultra-intelligent. In fact, the world has no idea how intelligent this young man truly is. He's not only smart, he's wise and his movie role choices reflect it. How fortunate to be 24 years old and know who you are and therefore, what kinds of roles are a perfect match to what you can offer.
He is not from this era truly, but from a time of great strides in the creative and literary arts - the Renaissance. I'm talking about his essence, as reflected in his Expression number, which is also his Destiny number. Leonardo is a Leonardo. Anytime he chooses a role that aligns with his essence, he will be "lucky". The 7 essence is poignant, mysterious and enigmatic. Historical epics, tragic romances, chivalry, classical music, art, literature and poetry are all natural "7" expressions.
Soul Urge: 3
The Soul Urge number has also been called Heart's Desire and Spiritual Urge. It is our secret, innermost longing. Our dream, our motivation, the fuel that energizes our journey. The Soul Urge number reveals what we secretly strive to be or accomplish. Some have said that this number tells us what we have been in previous lifetimes, the accumulated growth of our soul.
Your urge is to bring hope, joy and beauty to all you meet. You feel the best when you are in beautiful and comfortable surroundings. You have a creative essence and use your inspiration and imagination to make others happy. You enjoy attention and admiration, and you desire recognition for your talents.
Leonardo's Soul is drawn to fun, glamorous, expressive people and places and this is the well from which he will pick his friends, lovers and favorite experiences. The 3 vibration covers artists, actors, and entertainers of every kind. People with 3 Soul Urges appreciate comedy, social camaraderie and must express themselves in some way. Conversation is central to their friendships and there's an innate light-heartedness about them that puts others at ease.
The following is a description of the 3 Soul's image of an ideal mate, (From my article, Who Do You Love?: The Numerology of Romance and the Soul)
Fun! fun! fun! and good lookin' too! Your perfect one is a vision to behold, a super-model a Venus de Milo, a movie star... Everybody else should think so too. You will know them by their laugh - it will tickle one in you. They make you feel GOOD. They're born communicators, talk talk talk, and you could listen to them for hours. They're flirty, playful and spirited. They remind you of who you are.
The Persona number describes the way we appear to the outside world, the first impression people have of us. We may not even be aware of how we are perceived by others because we are so often focused on our inner world, and many times the inner does not match the outer. Persona gives us a peek at some hidden talents we have. The talents that we use to get along in the world and in some instances, protect us from it. It is likened to a bag of tools (jewels) that we carry with us along the way.
You appear to be conservative, practical and hard working to those who spend time around you. People think of you as disciplined and focused, and thus they seem to automatically trust that you are reliable and honest too. Some may think you do such a good job at your own responsibilities that they try to give you a few of theirs!
The 4 Persona is down to earth, focused, hard-working and practical. Nothing that is too "easy" is worth doing to a 4. They are loyal, disciplined, honest and persevering. Physically, they can be "earthy", even rugged and out in nature is where they feel most at home. Leonardo has said, in response to questions about how he is taking all of this attention, "I'm just trying to keep it 'real'." Keeping it real is the job of 4, the number representing the physical body and the earth.
Destiny: 7 - November 11, 1974
The Destiny number describes the life lessons that we have come here to learn. It reveals to us the path we must take, and the role we must play to fulfill our mission. Often our choice of career is based on this vibration, and if not, then it will manifest through avocational pursuits. We may attract people and experiences into our lives that mirror the traits of this number for us, so that we may develop into our highest potential. We don't always welcome our life lessons, so it is a possibility that we may even feel an aversion to the characteristics of our Destiny number in other people, and we may ourselves act the opposite. In spite of the many ways we may choose to react to this force within us, we have been gifted with all of the talents and energy needed to fulfill our Destiny.
You are an enigma to others and perhaps even to yourself. Your mind is like an arrow that can shoot deep into it's subject, analyzing and storing vast volumes of knowledge. Your introspective and intuitive mind then uses this knowledge to decipher your world's complexity of mysteries. You are a philosopher and humanity is waiting for your words of wisdom. Spirituality, phenomena and the occult are areas that may interest you, as are religion, science and mathematics.
The 7 Destiny is "tapping" in and drawing out the wine of life. It uses it's host of talents to stretch the boundaries and leave the world a wiser place. The person with the 7 Destiny very often allows the world to see them through an imaginary filter rather than let anyone into the secret chamber of their inner world. Very few will ever really know the "Man in the Mask". It's because of this that 7 Destiny's are often remembered and loved long after their tour on planet earth. There is something about them that sets our imaginations stirring and that allows whatever we dream up to super-impose over them - the better to hide behind! Marilyn Monroe also had a 7 Destiny.
Now I said that the answer was in his 11's and this is why. Leonardo's birth month, birthday, and first two Cycles of his life are 11's. 11 is the number of electricity, inspiration, invention, super-charged energy and often fame. It is "in the world, but not of it" and requires a willingness to be "used" for a greater purpose, which often includes genius in the creative arena. Leonardo is aware at the core level that he can't let it all "go to his head". He must "keep it real" and not get trapped into believing that his imaginary movie star image is the real him. This won't be a problem for him to do, but it can get lonely in a place where you're the only one who knows who you are. He's super-sensitive to other people's thoughts and he can "see into them" to the real person behind the facade. Leonardo is intense, driven and his thoughts and mental images quickly manifest into reality. 11 energy can sometimes be too draining and lead a person to various ways of "buffering" the intensity of life experiences through addictions and "dropping out" of the limelight for a time. His 7 Destiny will be completed in 3 Cycles of 11, 11, 3. This means that for the first two-thirds of his life, his Destiny is about harnessing and channeling this super-creative genius quality, with the last third of his life more of a vacation of fun, lightness and social warmth. He will spend his later years enjoying and sharing all that he is working for now. He will be in the spotlight more than ever, but will feel thoroughly comfortable in the bed that he's made.
Right now, Leonardo is being bathed in that spotlight. The 11 vibration can be totally enveloping and can lift a person right up out of his limitations and into another world before he can wipe the spilt coffee off of his shirt. During 11 Cycles, there are sudden surges - energy storms - that transform the life. 11 brings to mind the character in the movie Powder who is unalterably transformed by the lightening strike and imbued with supernatural abilities. There can be high prices to pay and it can get very lonely too.
So will everyone with strong 11 energy in their lives become famous? Probably - within their realm of influence. To one type of person, being a highly revered teacher or a successful interior decorator will fit the bill. To others, a more celebrated Destiny is in order. Still to others, the intensity might be too much to deal with and they will either tone it down to the 2 vibration or buffer it in some other way.
All of the numbers in your chart work together to paint the masterpiece of your life and there is another element that no one can predict. Free-Will. According to a recent Life magazine article on the influence of our DNA programming versus our environment, we are 50% under the influence of our genes and 50% the environment in which we are brought up. The author goes on to say, "We are the only animals on earth that can overrule our genes. We do it all the time." But it takes a deliberate effort. I believe this is also true when it comes to our numbers. Our numerology numbers can describe influences, preferences and the basic lessons we are here to learn, but it is up to us how we make that happen. Leonardo was born in L.A., had he been born in Texas, he may be a well-known cattle-roper right now, praised and adored by ranchers everywhere.
The destiny is divided into 3 great cycles, each governing us for specific durations throughout our life. The Seed cycle begins at birth and colors our experiences through childhood and adolescence. During the year nearest our 28th birthday, we move into the Fruit cycle which remains throughout the middle part of our life until the year nearest our 56th birthday, and the Harvest cycle carries on from there. Taken all together, the cycles show us our particular path that will lead to the fulfillment of our Destiny.
When the 11 is the seed cycle, it reduces to a 2, which is a much more manageable energy for a child. This produces a very emotional, shy child, who is ever willing to help and serve. If the 11 energy is attempted, the child could see the the world as surreal, or unfriendly. Psychic or empathic abilities are probably very strong, and modes of self-protection are being formed that could last the whole life through. Forgiveness is an important attitude to cultivate now.
This is a time for spiritual growth and mind expansion through the creative use of the high vibrational energy of 11. Psychic abilities are very accessible, and fame or notoriety is a real possibility. Commercial efforts are not to be sought, but rather original, creative, and inspired works for the benefit of others.
This is a time of fun and creative expression. You're likely to be in the spotlight somehow, and you've got a large audience. It's a good time to write the book you've always had in mind, or take art classes. The so-called "retirement years" are a second youth for you.
The four pinnacles reveal the high spots or heights of attainment that we are likely to encounter as we move along the path of our life. The 1st pinnacle lasts from birth to around age 28. The 2nd pinnacle lasts for 9 years after that. the 3rd pinnacle lasts 9 more years, and the 4th pinnacle carries on through the rest of our life. The peak of the pinnacle is reached during the next 1 personal year. Pinnacles are like sudden inheritances from a benevolent aunt, they can transform the prevailing energies completely and suddenly. It is useful to look ahead and prepare for our pinnacles so that we can maximize their gifts to us and shape them into the most positive manifestation.
First Pinnacle: 4
This is a period of practical, orderly construction. Creativity can be harnessed and focused on a goal. The practical, hard work you are doing now is building a strong foundation for the rest of your life to grow from.
Second Pinnacle: 5
The 5 pinnacle will bring opportunities for freedom in any area that there has been stagnation, so changes in job, relationships or residence are common. If there is a resistance to change, it may be manifested through something or someone seeming to force it. Either way the change will occur.
Third Pinnacle: 9
A time of completion, change, and charity. This is a period where there will be an urge to focus your energy on humanitarian and self-less efforts. Fine artists, poets and philosophers vibrate this energy.
Fourth Pinnacle: 5
This time of your life could find you dashing off on an unexpected voyage of adventure. It will be important to remain flexible and willing for change could occur any moment now. Retirement will be more like childhood "could" have been.
The three challenges show us the major influences demanding our attention during specific sections of our lifetime. The 1st challenge influences the years from birth to age 28. The 2nd challenge takes over from age 28 to 52, and the third affects us our whole life. Challenges shape our attitudes and can affect our health. These vibrations that challenge us, cause either an exaggeration of the associated qualities or a lack of them, both of which are extremes which need to be brought into balance.
First Challenge: 0
0 brings the challenge of balancing selfishness with selflessness. There is usually some reason that the child is forced into independence early. They are sometimes born of older parents or to large families where they are made to be responsible for younger siblings, or small families where they play the role of parent to their own parents. The 0 challenge is sometimes called the challenge of the "old soul", and the children are likely to be very wise. In the teenage years they become loners or profound, romantic poets. They begin their life long search for a soulmate.
Second Challenge: 1
1's challenge is about independence and initiation in spite of any opposition. Like all challenges, balance is to be found and for this challenge the balance is in asserting their will while also considering the will of everyone else involved, not by sacrificing but by cooperating. The balance can be found in the 9 and the 2. A view of the big picture, humanity and all, coupled with a sensitive intuition. In this way the 1 can accomplish their aims with the assistance of all concerned.
Third Challenge: 1
The challenge of ambition and will-power. The 1 challenge holder may feel that their natural will and desire to create, explore and discover, is being thwarted by external circumstance or authority. This may lead them to snuff out their own bright flame in an effort for harmony. The challenge is to acknowledge this tendency and to force themselves to forge ahead and assert their will against, or in spite of opposition. The key is to act upon one's firm decisions, making sure it is the best choice and then committing to the final outcome. The opposite of this is possible where the challenger is so focused on their own will and desires that they trample over everything else in their path. In this case the remedy is to realize that we are all sharing this experience together, and to act accordingly.
