Energy Grid for Jorge Mario Bergoglio

(birth name of Pope Francis)

Not surprisingly, this numerology Grid highlights the exact attributes we find when we consider the purpose of the life and message of Pope Francis.

The power of this Grid shows up in the rather rare Line of Focus 3,6,9 (where he has the most numbers circled).

His Ruling Passion (most numbers) is NINE, the number of service to the masses, compassion, and forgiveness.

The 3,6,9 Line is called The Line of the Director.

On this Line of the Director he has five NINES—service to the masses.

Not only does he have many NINES, but he also has four SIXES, meaning that he will be serve as a teacher and parent (Holy Father).

Since his birth name lacks EIGHTS, his Karmic Lesson is where he must express himself. EIGHT is the realm of the right use of power, money, and authority. His Karmic Lesson is to remind us of the true nature of power—the power to work for the common good (NINES), especially in the service of families and children (SIXES).

Interestingly, the name Jorge Mario Bergoglio has an EIGHT Heart's Desire (see above), which further encourages the Pope to address the issues of problems caused by worshiping money.

"If politics must truly be at the service of the human person, it follows that it cannot be a slave to the economy and finance. Politics is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life. I do not underestimate the difficulty that this involves, but I encourage you in this effort." - Pope Francis addressing the United States Congress September 23, 2015.

LAST WORD: The name Francis has a SEVEN Destiny—indicating deep spirituality, love of nature, and simplicity.


Below are brief individual numerology analyses for the five recipients of this year's Kennedy Center Awards. 

To compare their expressions in the world, I have also excerpted the three core numbers of their Birth Path (natural talents), Destiny (what they are drawn to achieve), and Realization (a prominent area of Outcome).

For example, Greene, Hanks, and Sting all have a 1 Birthpath--the pioneer and outstanding achiever. Hanks and Tomlin each have the Master Number 33/6 Destiny--promise of exceptional impact on others.  Tomlin and McBride each have the Master Number 11/2 Realization number--the promise of becoming inspirational to others.
