By the time I finished Eat Pray Love’s energetic and satisfying mystical journey, I was yearning to dive into what was behind the star secrets making of this talented writer. Gilbert notes in the book that she is a Cancer sun sign- but of course that’s about as telling as the daily horoscope- which only urged me to know all of Gilberts’ other ‘star stats’ specifics. As it always is with the exploration of one’s Lexigrams, both Gilbert’s name and book title are eerily on target in their own tales from the letters contained within their names.
It wasn’t surprising at all to learn Gilbert’s Cancer Sun was born to the Karmic Path of the 18th, her calendar date of birth in July of 1969. The Chaldean Karmic Mystery of the 18 is Spiritual – Material Conflict, exactly where our star writer found herself within at 31 yrs of age- in a material marriage bound for divorce and her soul screaming from within to “get spiritual.” Hence the premise of where she was at the beginning of Eat Pray Love. The key to anyone born upon the 18th of any given month is to gravitate to the Chaldeans profound understanding that this Karmic Path requests, “the only way to dilute or diminish its effect on the life is by spiritual means, by unfailingly and repeatedly meeting deception and hatred from others with generosity, love, and forgiveness, by ‘turning the other cheek,’ and returning good for evil, kindness for cruelty, honesty for dishonesty, honor for dishonor. In this way, the vibration 18 may be used for great success in illumination and enlightenment.” With Mars guiding this singular 9 vibration, it is the utilization of courage over conflict that will always allow successful outcomes to prevail.
My heart felt more for Gilbert to discover she has a Name Expression of the 35/8 of Partnerships. Now, there is nothing negative about this energy, yet when a soul represented by this particular influence of Saturn through the singular 8 falls to materialism- ignoring the spiritual within their intimate relationships- chaos is bound to occur. Toss in an 18 Karmic Path with this name energy and certainly one can be very challenged when they are unaware of these forces guiding them from the Universe.
Gilbert did marry before her 1st Saturn Return and 1st Numerical Period Cycle was finished, which in this day and age, typically results in the union not being able to endure the life-long commitment. When such an important decision is made before the soul’s true self-discovery and exploration period is complete, often the life choices made will not fit into the path that the soul is meant to continue upon. Once our 1st Saturn Return is complete and our 2nd Period Cycle numerically has begun, we are all the more in tune with our sense of true self like never before. Gilbert is undeniably vulnerable as she shares her truth of this deep experience and the courageous healing process that followed within the book.
Gilbert mentions some details of her astrological birth chart; one that she doesn’t quite fit the typical Cancer description, and was once told she actually has major placements in “unstable” Gemini, which explains the disconnect with her Cancer character. Immediately without any research I attributed this to her brilliant writing ability as Mercurial Gemini excels at communications; yet upon finishing the book and acquiring her full natal information, my thorough calculations noted she only has one planet in Gemini- Venus. It was upon learning her Moon is in Virgo and that Gilbert follows a numerical 41/5 Lifepath that more factual information fell into place of where her Mercury energy was truly coming from.
With both her Moon and Venus in the two Mercury ruled communication signs, coupled with her Mercury 41/5 Lifepath, which the Chaldeans coin as Communication, my “Sherlock Holming” made much more sense. No wonder Gilbert is an exceptional tale-teller and beyond eager to see the world at large! Mercury’s got quite the strong influence over her emotions, values and follow-up in life. The life is constantly about movement and change (and a many 5 Lifepaths do divorce), granting her an impeccable ability with the 41’s blessings to possess “the magical power to sway masses of people- the complexities of advertising, writing, publishing, radio, television are not always, but usually are an open book.”
Gilbert intuitively titled Eat Pray Love to a Neptune ruled 7 Name Expression, representing spirituality, solitude and natural healing- all topics that you’ll find within this clever travel memoir. It’s funny that Gilbert doesn’t find herself very Cancer like, but there is no other sign more well-attuned to writing about the past and especially their own emotional experiences that our sensitive Crabs- and it’s is Gilbert who undeniably excels at the task. Already known for her communication successes through writing about travel and the like, it truly was this book’s spiritual accounts that took her 18 Karmic Path’s energy right to the Universal Nines! By now it also has been translated into over 20 languages and oh yes we already mentioned the future movie…
There’s an overload of astrological and numerical forecasting that coincide with Gilbert’s time travels throughout Italy, India and Indonesia over that year. But I would think it unfair to give away any of this precious story in case you haven’t the chance to pick up a copy of this gem of a book yet. (and by the way, when you do, it’s that kind of “hook book” that you’ll be ever thirsty for more after its’ over.) As the Numbers are so divinely able to tell us, Gilbert’s 23/5 The Royal Star of the Lion’s Personal Year Cycle in 2005-06 brought her “to the masses” and blossomed what has been transpiring for her since 2001. It was upon May 13th of 2006 on a 5 Personal Day in a 1 Personal Month of new beginnings in her 5 year of permanent change, when Eat Pray Love hit the New York Times Bestseller list in hardcover and started to spread to the masses like wildfire ever since.
So without further hesitation, I conclude with the normal on-target Lexigram revelations, which won’t give anything away expect to verify just how much our enchanting author’s name tells her tale and how Eat Pray Love’s title lends us its’ own wise advice.
