The number 17 as birth day numberIn Chaldean numerology, the day you are born in the month is of particular importance as it profoundly influences your personality. The following explains how this number will affect you if you are born on the 17th and which themes might be present in your life.
17 gives you an energy of “celebrity” and “stardom.” You will have an innate ability to be on a stage, to shine like a star, and to tap into the deep archetypical currents of art and beauty and to communicate these aspects to humanity.
The 17/8 variant of 8 – THE STAR
The 17/8 variant of the 8 is the most beautiful and spiritually minded of the 8’s.
The symbolism of the number 17/8 is that the chakras are in full balance and that this positively influences the body so that you have a proper metabolism and a healthy hormone balance. The 1 in 17/8 is the sun shining on the 7 chakras creating the number 8, which is the number of eternal balance.
Artistic and intuitive
The number 17 helps you to express the collective human archetypical emotions through art and communication. You will also have an exceptionally awakened intuition – the greatest among all the numbers.
Talented with a high intellect
Because of the awakened intuition and access to the archetypical levels, you know to attract new knowledge without having to work so hard for it. You can quickly absorb new skills and receive new knowledge in a fast way through a process of transference where you vibrate/resonate with the knowledge and thereby download it from the macrocosm and into your microcosm.
People with 17/8 are, therefore, often very talented and knowledgeable. It is also a number of high intellect and all-round intelligence that joins practical sense with profound intuition and logical thinking. Many artists and actors have the number 17/8.
The number of eternity
As we mentioned before, 8 is the number of eternity, also called the number of eternal life. In the number 17, this is expressed through the fact that you have a unique charisma that people notice and will always remember you for.
When you step into a room, you will light it up so that people notice you.
When you express your self through words, writing, or art, you become a channel of archetypical emotions that influence people at a deep level. You touch people right in the heart, and therefore it is said that you will be remembered by many – even after death.
When the number 17 is imbalanced by imbalanced numbers in the chart, it becomes AFRAID of the spotlight.
You could also develop hormonal imbalances, problems with metabolism, and be gaining too much weight – or losing weight.
As a 17, you are easily seen and noticed – but this can also be in a negative way.
You can also become easily irritated over small things. When studying the number 17 in the diamond, we notice that there are 2 number 15/6 in the number 17. This gives the number 17 a considerable charisma and access to parallel astral worlds like the 15 has – but can also provide a lot of the negative qualities of 15 – for example an extreme oversensitivity that makes the number 15 freak out over small minor things and even a tendency for the 17 to become manipulative.
The imbalanced 17 can have a very ambivalent relationship with being in the spotlight. On the one hand, you might be good and natural on stage – but at the same time, you have resistance towards it.
You can also quickly get the blame for things because you’re the first person everybody notices. For example, as a child, you could have experienced that the teacher scolded you for something that you didn’t do just because you were the one everybody noticed or had in mind.
A karma number
The karma number 17/8 is such a powerful number that it should preferably only feature once in your chart! If the 17 is present as the fundament vibration but is also to be found in another position in the chart, then the 17 energy becomes too powerful and possibly overwhelming.
If you have many 17/8’s in your chart, you can develop something called “spotlight allergy.” This means that you have an allergic reaction to being visible to other people – for example, by standing on a stage, being in the spotlight, talking in front of others, getting your photograph taken, and even anxiety to show your face.
When it gets really bad, the 17/8 can shun social get-togethers where it risks coming into the limelight or even having a Facebook profile where private information can suddenly get revealed. The 17/8 can wish to have a secret address and to protect itself by using a pseudonym.
Shy 17/8 celebrities
Many artists and actors with 17/8 allergy find specific methods to get their art out there without anybody knowing who they are – for example, by using a pseudonym or performing in disguise. As an example, we have the singer Sia who performs with her back to the audience and has the number 17/8 featured twice in her chart.
The singer Adele is so terrified of the audience that she many times has escaped from the stage using one of the exits and has even thrown up due to fright. She has 17/8 in both of her centers.
One of the best examples is probably Elvis Presley, who had 17/8 featured three times in his numerology chart and was known for having to dope himself even to be able to walk on stage – which eventually leads to his death (pill overdose).
CHEIRO and other sources
The famous Chaldean numerologist Cheiro writes:
“This is a highly spiritual number and is expressed in symbolism by the 8-pointed Star of Venus, a symbol of peace and love. It is also called ”the Star of the Magi” and expresses that the person it represents has risen superior in spirit to the trials and difficulties of his life or his career. It is considered a number of immortality and that the person’s name shall live after him. It is a fortunate number if it works out in relation to future events, provided it is not associated with the single number of fours and eights. ”
The Vedic numerology scriptures write that the number 17 will face many challenges in life but that you will overcome all obstacles due to hard work and that you will attain celebrity status and wealth and be forever remembered for it.
Biggest emotional issue to greatest liberation
The most significant emotional issue of 17 is the negative spotlight effect where the 17 can feel like it is the victim of a public witch hunt. It can't do anything without being noticed or persecuted.
Your greatest liberation comes when you channel eternal and archetypical energies - because doing so "protects" you from negativity projected upon you from others.
The 17 in balance is:
- Artistically gifted and has an exceptional intuition
- Shining in the spotlight and is remembered
- A channel for archetypal feelings through art and knowledge
- Visible and noticed all the time (for good or bad)
- Very talented and unifies spirituality and practicality
The 17 unbalanced is
- Getting negative attention and blame for things it didn't do
- Very private and intensely afraid of the spotlight
- Easily irritated over the small practicalities of life
- Afraid of being unfairly judged and getting 'burnt at the stake'
- Having all the details of its private life exposed
17 is under the influence of SATURN
Saturn is perhaps the most beautiful of all planets with its huge ring system.
At Saturn's north pole, the clouds form a hexagoic geometric shape. The shape is vast spanning over 13,800 km making the shape wider than the planet Earth. The hexagon has six sides. The hexagon and the number 6 stand for love and beauty. In the middle of the 8 diamond, we also find the number 6 (digit sum of 15). This symbolizes the deep love and longing for love that number 8 feels at its core.
The vast rings of Saturn symbolize Saturn's resonance with eternity and eternal memory. But they also express Saturn's trait to keep people at a safe distance. There can be mistrust and skepticism.
Saturn people are receptive, often do not find understanding among others, and can suffer from loneliness. Their outward coldness and alienation hide the longing for a deeper and more profound love (the 6 core), but they do not know how to show it (the rings that keep people at bay).
Saturn people do not like superficiality; they like order and material security. Unfortunately, as Saturn is a planet of karma and fate, everything comes to them with difficulty, and everything must be achieved on their own.
Saturn people honor rules and laws. They are pragmatic, prudent, cautious, punctual, and methodical in everything that they do. They are hardworking and persistent in achieving their goals and ideas.
The energy of Saturn demands material well being and certainty of the future.
Saturn people both give and demand loyalty, and they are very reliable people.
