The Numerology of 40: Its Meaning and Significance

The number 40 gives a high intelligence and an almost autistic ability with numbers. You have strong and distinctive attitudes to life and society and a contrasting personality.

The number contains a direct and unbalanced 4-8 "tension" (as it is called in Chaldean numerology) that can attract accidents, disasters, and misunderstandings - but can also be channeled into an inner search or questioning that leads to higher insight and truth.

The number 40 is a number that signifies many spiritual tests and trials that finally lead to a new level of consciousness. In many religions, we see, for example, a "trial period" that you have to go through, in which a lot of karma is burned that one has accumulated through life or taken with from past lives.

For example, from the bible, we have that Jesus fasted forty days and forty nights in The Judean Desert. We also have that 40 days passed between Jesus's resurrection and Jesus's ascension. In the story of Noah and the arc, we have that the rain fell 40 days and 40 nights in the flood. These were just a few examples. There are many more and from many different traditions and religions.

The number 40 is often described as unfortunate and fateful in ancient sources when it is a name value. The number contains a direct and unbalanced 4-8 conflict and can attract accidents and bad luck. It should, therefore, preferably not be used as a name or placed elsewhere in the numeroscope. In extreme imbalance, the number 40/4 involuntarily becomes a secluded hermit living on the fringes of society. It can be lost in its own reality, full of cynicism and bitterness, where it looks down on others. It can also attract bad karma, accidents, and tests of a biblical proportion. 40/4 in strong imbalance is also a number of mental afflictions, such as mental handicaps, autistic tendencies, and low IQ. One might also be susceptible to auto-immune diseases, paralysis, sclerosis, and Parkinsons disease.

In balance, the number 40/4 is a powerful number that can be used to look inwards, make extended meditation or other kinds of spiritual retreats, and in the process, burn a lot of karma and acquire profound spiritual insight.

40 is under the influence of URANUS

Uranus is the coldest planet in our solar system and has a temperature of about -220 degrees centigrade. There are large cloud formations in the atmosphere, created by water in the lowest clouds and methane in the upper cloud cover. The planet itself is made up of ice and rocks. The clouds give a cloudy light blue impenetrable look. Much like the planet itself, Uranus people are mysterious, profound and don't reveal much about themselves at first glance.

Uranus is the quietest of all planets. In contrast to this, Jupiter makes a lot of electromagnetic noise as you approach it.

Uranus has large, vertical rings around it. Where Saturn's rings are horizontal, Uranus' rings are vertical. This symbolizes an opposition between the two planets.

The axis of Uranus is tilted almost 90 degrees. This makes Uranus "roll" along its axis, while the other planets are like spinning tops on their trajectories. This makes Uranus unique among all the worlds. In Uranus people, this translates to them doing and saying the opposite of what everyone else is saying. There is both an excentric and contrarian streak.

It takes Uranus a full 84 years to orbit the sun, and the eccentric axis of rotation means that while one hemisphere is bathed in light, the other is in constant darkness - for an entire season. This gives very long summers and winters. The transition between summer and winter happens very quickly on Uranus, symbolizing upheavals, and violent transformations. That is why Uranus represents changes that occur very suddenly, and that changes a person, a generation, or the whole world.

The long winter represents that Uranus energy goes in-depth. It is not fast and flighty but thorough and profound.

The north and south poles are not fixed, which means that Uranus does not stand firm on how things are, and the truth is perceived as relative and can be continually challenged.
