The Revolutionary Politician

The digits in the number 48 add up to 12 called the secondary digit sum, which again adds up to 3 called the primary digit sum which resonates with the planet Jupiter. 48 is often written as 48/3 where the primary digit sum is placed after the slash. To understand 48 more in depth we recommend you also read more about the secondary digit sum 12 here and the primary digit sum 3 here.

The Numerology of 48: Its Meaning and Significance

The number 48 vibration shows new and better ways forward based on strategic, intellectual, and analytical work. It gives an ability to investigate profoundly and focus on the smallest detail. There is always a tendency to question established knowledge and systems and, in some instances, a desire to provoke authority.

This number is best suited for intellectual and complex tasks, for example, research and political strategy. This number will also allow you to become an expert in your field. Beware though of intellectual arrogance.

In the right circumstances and when properly nurtured, this number can give a high intelligence.

The 8 stands for tradition, the 4 stands for renewal, and the digit sum 12/3 stands for expansion. So 48/3 wants to rebel (4) against tradition (8) to create growth and expansion (12/3).

In imbalance, the 4 and 8 start an inner battle. The 4 wants to renew, but the 8 wants to keep things status-quo. This results in continual inner second-guessing. There is a tendency to start things and to doubt them later. In time, inner and outer forces tend to tear the bearer of this number apart, and you can feel enormously conflicted about your actions. It requires a great deal of awareness to get the best out of this number. 48/3 can feel completely split asunder between the 4-8 tension and can never decide or move forward. The 4-8 tension can become a deep rebelliousness where you never know whether to go with or against tradition. One becomes deeply dissatisfied with one's life situation and continually wants to change the whole frame. The tendency to constantly second-guess one's actions can lead to accidents and mishaps. In severe imbalance, 48/3 can lead to mental afflictions and autism because the mind is in a continual state of inner conflict.

Due to this tension between 4 and 8, the number 48/3 is very reviled in many forms of Chaldean numerology. Even though 4 and 8 can learn to speak to each other, much energy is needed to make these opposing energies meet.

This mixture of numbers can lead to chaos, revolutions, misunderstandings, etc. But as we mentioned, it can also lead to pioneering work, positive upheavals, necessary transformations, and new ways of seeing things.

Celebrities with 48 in their numerology chart

Birth day number 4 and lifepath 8

The 48 energy can be seen in the chart of people born on an 4 day (the 4th, 13th, 22nd, or 31st) with a 8 lifepath, subtly giving the number 48:

Deng Xiaoping (revolutionary and then leader of China), Vallabhbhai Patel (Indian freedom fighter), Mohammed bin Salman (King of Saudi Arabia), Naomi Campbell (English model and actress), Jason Newsted (Metallica), Sergey Bubka (pole vaulter), Dennis Rodman (basketball), Domenico Dolce (Dolce & Gabbana), Nick Cave (singer-songwriter), Whoopi Goldberg (actress, comedian), Richard Gere (actor), Carl Stefan Erling Persson (H&M), Ted Cassidy (actor), Lev Yashin (goalkeeper), Cesar Chavez (labor leader), Laurence Olivier (actor), Hergé (comic books), Paavo Nurmi (runner), Percival "Percy" Lowell (forsaw Pluto), Rudolf Virchow (anthropologist), Jacob Grimm (folklorist), Daniel Defoe (Robinson Crusoe), Jan Vermeer (painter), Rasmus Bartholin (physician, mathematician)


Example: Barack Obama

The 8 stands for tradition, the 4 stands for renewal, and the digit sum 12/3 stands for expansion. So 48/3 wants to rebel (4) against tradition (8) to create growth and expansion (12/3).

An excellent example of this is former president Barack Obama born on the 4th. August 1961. The date is remarkable because August corresponds to 8, and 1961 has digit sum 8. Obama's day of birth 4 makes an outer 48 diamond with the month 8 and an inner 48 diamond with 1961. Obama came to power through his extraordinary rhetoric promising change and transformation (the number 4) – but his presidency was bogged down in strenuous fights with the traditional order and the republicans (symbolized by the number 8). Obama left office an exhausted man with gray hair, his changes not evident on the surface – perhaps time will reveal his contribution. His presidency shows the struggles that 48/3 must face when it takes on the establishment.

48 is under the influence of JUPITER

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system; it is expansive and powerful and has a considerable family of moons around it. It is like a solar system within our solar system.

Jupiter is a patriarch and loves to have family and life around it.

Jupiter is the "loudest" planet. When the satellite Voyager passed Jupiter, all its meters and measurement devices went haywire due to the enormous amounts of electromagnetic noise that Jupiter exudes. Jupiter has a massive field of information around it that extends thousands of kilometers into the surrounding space. These Jupiter traits make the Jupiter person speak loudly, act confidently, love humor, and literally be "jovial" (the word jovial means "Jupiter-like"). The Jupiter person is, in general, an extroverted personality that loves to take up space.

Simultaneously, Jupiter is also full of "gas" and can "puff itself up," making itself appear larger or more substantial than it is.

Jupiter people are optimistic people who like to engage with others. They give a lot and expect a lot in return. Interchange has to be significant and meaningful.

Jupiter demands respect, and Jupiter people are very status aware.
