The Numerology of 16: Its Meaning and Significance
The specific number 16 variant of number 7 is the most transcendent, wise, and profound aspect of the number 7 – it is the variant that easiest can melt into the void and enter deep states of Zen-like meditation.
The number 16 is a karmic number. This means that there could potentially be terrifying life lessons following the 16. The most important experience is the lesson of transcendence – meaning that you need to learn at a deep level that everything in this life is transient and that everything will die, perish, get consumed by existence, and return to nothingness. This aspect can lead to extreme inner anxiety, making the number 16 difficult to master.
The number 16/7 is always imbalanced in the name chart, where it gives sorrow, grief, and fear in the area of life that it is placed in. 16/7 can make you paralyzed by anxiety due to the previous loss of loved ones. This fear makes you unable to connect to others, and you can feel profoundly lonely. You are afraid of being annihilated, fearful of heights, and full of phobias. You always follow the rules out of fear, becoming a sheep in the herd and easy to manipulate with fear tactics. There is an inner feeling of always standing and observing people and life itself from the outside, unable to participate.
We desire to live a life of abundance and plenitude, and life is not meant to be a constant struggle with fear and anxiety. If you have 16/7 in your name chart and you have found this page, perhaps it means that your soul has led you here through the process of resonance, and you are ready to let go of the karmic lessons of pain and suffering. If this is the case, we strongly recommend you consult with a name change numerologist to rectify your names and give your life a new and positive meaning and direction.
In balance, the 16/7 becomes wise, spiritual, and detached. But it can only be balanced in the natal chart, where it is a potential that can swing to its balanced or imbalanced sides depending on the numbers in the name chart. The balanced 16/7 is observant, skilled, and mentally awakened, both scientific and philosophical - seeing beyond the surface. It is the most transcendent number - giving an inner joy beyond this world. It can dive into the depths of the soul/psyche and see deep patterns. It learns profound lessons of life by going through its fears and transcending them.

16 is under the influence of NEPTUNE
Neptune is the last planet in the solar system and resonates with the deep depths of the Cosmos. Neptune has a deep blue color and looks like a beautiful astral version of Earth.
Neptune has the strongest winds of the solar system, which are faster than the speed of sound here on Earth. In the middle of the planet, though, we find an ocean of serenity. Many scientist believe that there could be a vast ocean of water under the clouds of Neptune. This symbolizes that Neptune people have overactive psyches that are ridden with angst and worries, but that they can tap into deeper layers of their minds to achieve inner peace.
Neptune (in Greek called Poseidon) is the God of the sea and stands for the psyche and the subconscious mind.
The architecture of Neptune symbolizes a deep property of Neptune people. On the surface, the quick winds symbolize an overactive mind and psyche and a tendency towards anxiety. At a deeper level, Neptune people resonate with calmness, spirituality, and deep tranquility that is in touch with the Cosmos.
Neptune people are often philosophically, religiously or scientifically minded, and they can be a bit compliant as there is a strong fearful streak.
They have deep and profound thoughts but can often lack the power of finality, which ground the thoughts into practical conclusions or results. Usually, they prefer to step back and observe instead of acting or participating.
These are people with subtle and highly sensitive natures - sensitive to the mood of others. They are usually not good at making decisions, often physically weak, and appear fragile. They do not accept or like quarrels and conflicts.
Neptune people sympathize and empathize with the suffering of the world.
