Handsome Mr. Bourdain took his life on June 8, 2018, just 3 days after Ms. Spade’s departure. Some of the characterizations of him by his closest friends were as follows:

“He gave all of himself in everything he did.” Asia Argento

“He was a huge personality, a giant talent, a unique voice, and deeply, deeply human.” Christian Amanpour

“A gifted chef and brilliant story-teller.” Chef Eric Ripert

“He was quite a character.” (spoken by one who would know)President Donald Trump

Interestingly, from a numerological standpoint, I would agree with Donald Trump’s statement, as well as all the others. Mr. Bourdain had a most exceptional and interesting numerological chart.

First and foremost, he was what is called a “Dharmic soul,” which, in the mystical science of numerology, means he was a very evolved soul and came to this earth on a mission. 

Second, he had one of the most unique charts I have ever seen. As those who have come to me for readings know, the given name offers how one presents oneself in the public and socially. Mr. Bourdain’s name number was the 7 which indicates he would have been an expert at whatever he was presenting to the public or socially, as the 7 is known as the number of genius, perfection, and wisdom.

Third, he was born on the 25th of June, which made his “personality” number also a 7 (2+5 = 7). As a personality he would resonate to all the qualities mentioned above but also be very private and contained about his personal life, even to his best friends. Most with 7s in prominent positions in their charts are not inclined to divulge much about themselves or be boastful or self-aggrandizing.

Fourth, his destiny number (the full addition of his birth date) was also a 7. He would gravitate to unique and unusual things and be unique and unusual himself in getting there. He was for sure an exemplar of a visionary. 

And one more significant and coincidental aspects of Mr. Bourdain’s death of date, June 8, 2018, is that date also reduced to a 7 (6 [June] + 8 + 2018 = 25 and 2+5 = 7). 

My conclusion is that Mr. Bourdain was not only astute and unique, but so much more. Being as evolved as he was, I would say that perhaps he cleverly chose his own date of death to stay true to his own destiny – which was the 7 – a combination of enlightened genius and perfection, coupled with purposeful exactness! Perhaps at a spiritual level because he was a Dharmic soul, he had completed his mission and therefore was free to go whenever he wished.
