Ms. Spade was born on December 24, 1962, which is, interestingly, the same birth date as her husband Andrew Spade. Because they have the same birth date, they therefore had many of the same influences in their numerological charts at the time of Kate’s death. However, because they had different names, there were also significant differences. At that time, Andrew’s chart had an influence that portended that he would be given the opportunity to gain latent strength through strife and trials. That influence is not in Ms. Spade’s chart.
They both had the influence of the number 30 in their lives at age 55, and at the time of Kate’s death. I have often found the 30 in the charts of those who die accidentally or unexpectedly, and have referred to it as the number that depicts “the bird being let out of its cage.” It is also a number of joy and happiness, so that definition seems apt when one considers that Ms. Spade was psychologically “caged” by her own mind and is now released from the thoughts that bound her in depression.
Ms. Spade also had the number 18 come into her chart at the same time as the number 30. It portends possible onset of illness or depression, especially if one is prone to those conditions. It is usually a “wake-up” symbol to seriously address those elements should they be prevalent in one’s life.
Her “destiny” number (the full addition of the birth date) was a 9. She definitely lived the 9 to its fullest expression, described as the destiny number that can bestow success beyond one’s expectations in business, which certainly occurred in her life.
Both Kate and Andrew were in a 1 personal year, which ushers in major shifts in ones life, along with powerful turning points. It is a year of new beginnings, casting out the old and welcoming in the new, and from my esoteric philosophy, they are both experiencing those things in different dimensions.
