|The Number 7 by D-BH|
Seven is my life path number (8 + 22 + 1957 or 8 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 9 + 5 + 7 = 34 and 3 + 4 = 7). I have blogged about the number seven in a previous post but wanted to do something a little more in depth.
In Pythagorean or Western numerology, seven is considered to be an intellectual number and those with a life path of seven are known to be spiritual seekers drawn to metaphysical study. Seven's also have a love of solitude which may make it difficult for them to form close relationships. Finding a balance between intimacy and isolation is a challenge for this life path.
