We are currently witnessing the career meltdown of American celebrity chef Paula Deen with accusations of harassment and racism. People have strong opinions about Paula Deen, either loving her or wanting to crucify her. Because of the controversy, her celebrity status is dwindling and according to estimates, she has lost over 12 million in sponsorship and merchandising deals alone, not to mention the toll this is taking on her reputation and emotions.
There is an underlying cause and that can be found in her Numerology Chart.
Paula Ann Heirs was born January 19, 1947 and that makes her a 5 Lifepath. It is no wonder that she has authored 14 books because the 5 is considered to be strongly associated with an author. Even more so, the 5 has a gift of communication and is often found in television, radio and media. Even her interest in food can be traced to the 5 energy because 5s have heightened physical senses and they derive a great deal of pleasure from food itself.
Paula is a 22 Expression which is a Master Number and this gave her the potential to build an empire, with international size and scope, which will be on this earth long after she is gone. She had the ambition, discipline and determination to work very hard to achieve her dream and there is no question that Paula did exactly that.
She also has an 11 Heart’s Desire Number and Personality Number in her chart. The 11 is another Master Number which can bring a person to fame. Often an 11 has a message to give which can inspire others. Certainly, Paula inspired many people with her love of cooking but I can only wonder if also this experience in her life gives us another message and one of a darker nature, that being one about racism.
Paula also has another number in her Numerology Chart that is most telling. She was born on the 19th. This is a Karmic Number which indicates that she is working out a lesson in this lifetime that stems from a past life. It is a lesson about abuse of power and it would tell us that Paula was a powerful person in a past life but she abused her power, made a selfish decision that may have caused another person to be powerless. It is not unusual for a person who has a 19 in their Numerology Chart to experience a loss of power or to feel powerless in a situation. I am sure this is how Paula feels at this moment in time with her kingdom crumbling.
Her Numerology Chart becomes more interesting when we begin to look at the energy that is influencing her life at this very moment. In January, on her Birthday, she entered a 16/7 Essence. This number is also Karmic and it is often described as “the dark night of the soul” as well as “rise to fall” and often when this number is present in a chart, there can be a very humbling experience. It is especially significant if it repeats itself for several years as it does in Paula’s chart. Ultimately, her life as she knows it will slowly dissolve and she will have to start over again. It is not unusual when a person experiences this energy to have their life slow down to give them more time to do some inner reflection. In the end, whether Paula knows this or not, she will be a better person for it. It is also a number associated with secrets, lies and deception and given the rumors, accusations and innuendos, this is not surprising. I suspect, in the end, the truth will come out.
Paula is in an 8 Personal Year which places a huge amount of emphasis on career, money and power and it is also a Karmic balancing year. Most people experience their 8 Personal Year in a positive way with financial gains and recognition of their achievements but if there is Karma to be balanced, the opposite can occur such as in Paula’s case.
The most important thing to take away from all of this is not to judge Paula. There is no right or wrong in this but rather, this is her soul’s journey and these experiences have been written by her own soul to help her consciousness to evolve. We can not judge something we know nothing about but we can honor her soul's journey.
Paula is a very sensitive and emotional person and I am sure all of this has taken a huge emotional toll on her. In many ways ,as I look at her chart, I admire the courage of her soul to plan such a tumultuous experience and I for one, will keep her in my prayers and hope that in the end, she finds inner peace and happiness.
