The Number Three:
This correlates to the Luminary or Planet Sun, the sign of Leo, the color of purple or indigo, the fifth house, the Lion and The letters C, L & U -- SOL-Existential
The Number 3. The Witness, Expression and Communication number.
In the scriptures Peter denied the Christ three times. Later after his resurrection Christ asked Peter if he loved him three times. Peter was grieved when the Lord asked him this three times in a row. The reason he needed to do this was because he denied him three times. Whenever anything is mentioned three times it is a witness to us that these things are of the utmost importance. The reason that these things are important is because some form of the truth is being taught to us at this time. Truth is knowledge of things of the present, the past and of the future. Here we see time broken down into its three parts. Truth is light. The greatest symbol of light in our solar system is the sun. There is a saying that all good and bad things come in three’s or that the third time is a charm.
As a three you are expressive and outgoing. You love being the center of attention and you have a gift of creativity. You like the arts and you may want to be a singer or actor or actress or a painter. You want to share your talents with the world. You are proud of your abilities but you have a generous nature. People feel warm just being around you. Learn to be organized and this will help you. Learn to focus and you will be very successful. Smile a lot, as this will often brighten someone’s day. You are a natural romantic and love all that it entails. Because you are so friendly others flock around you. You don’t mind this, as you love an audience. Guard against gambling and all games of chance. You enjoy having fun and when you were a child the playroom was probably your favorite room in the house.
The positive 3 - Expression, The King, verbalization, communication, socialization, the arts, creativity, art, joy, fun, children, romance, the heart, circulation, and the witness.
The negative 3 - Self centered egotistical, proud, predatory, and arrogant.
The Sun - A Fire Planet and the sign of Leo.
Our Sun sign shows us where we get our joy. It needs to be expressed. The actual Sun in the heavens is the source , which is most responsible for our being alive. Without it earth would be a cold ball of ice. It is the largest object in the solar system comprising 99.8 percent of its total mass. The Planet Jupiter takes up the largest portion of the rest. The Greeks called the sun Helios and the Romans called it Sol. From that we get the word solar power. The sun converts Hydrogen to Helium in its core, through the process of nuclear fusion. The sun has a very strong magnetic field. It is estimated that there are 100 billion stars or suns in our galaxy. There is only one in our solar system, which is comprised of the other planets, or satellites, which orbit it. The Sun in Astrology is dignified in the sign of Leo. Its detriment is in the sign of Aquarius. It is exalted in Aries and its fall is in Libra. The sun changes sign about every 30 days or so. That is where the expression sun sign comes from. In traditional Astrology the sun represents a person’s ego or self. I have always found most of these definitions hard to understand. The sun was the ego; the moon was the immediate response, emotions or the personality. And the Ascendant was the mask and first impression. It all sounded like the same thing. And in a way it is, as all three define a person’s character. I hope to clear this up some. Fun, children, the heart, romance, characterize the sign of Leo; etc. the sun is exalted in the sign of Leo.
Any planet in Leo shows a connection to the person’s ego. Most Sun in Leo people are like their sign, but not all. You have probably meet many people who are not like their sun signs. I have found that people are more like the sign that rules a house where the sun is located. If the sun is in the 5th house they are probably a lot like a Leo. They will probably be creative. If the sun is in the 6th they are more like Virgo. The sun in the 7th is like Libra. 8th like Scorpio, 9th like Sag, 10th like Capricorn 11th like Aquarius and 12th like Pisces. I believe that sun sign Astrology does the greatest disservice to the study of Astrology. It is where a lot of the credibility is lost. Sun sign teaches that you are like your sun sign. You have those characteristics. Even traditional Astrology teaches this. I say this is not true. Sun sign shows us our hero and how we receive joy. It is what motivates us. We cannot shirk it and still feel happy. If we do we are cheating ourselves. Sometimes we may be more like our birthday number, or rising sign or our moon sign. I have found that the day a person is born is developed before the Sun sign. I believe that the moon sign shows us how we like to be nurtured. It is an indication of what makes us feel secure. It is the first sign that we develop. Next comes our rising sign then our birthday number and last our Sun sign. A person who does not have any affinity to their sun sign often feels dead. In order to feel alive and enjoy life you have to live your sun sign in some manor. Now I’m not suggesting that all Aries go out and climb a mountain or go skydiving, but some character in Aries needs to be expressed. Perhaps it’s working in a pioneering field or writing a web site in a whole new way. Or being a leader of people. Think of the sun sign as that side of you that needs to be expressed or acted out in order for you to be happy. It is the witness of who your hero is and who you want to be like the most. At minimum you will have pieces of your sun sign character and you will become more like it as you mature. If you do not you will be one unhappy person. Most of the time we have talents or abilities in the things that make us happy. If we don’t we should. As our happiness and joy depends on it. Since Leo is a fire sign it will act a lot like fire. Most astrology books explain the sun sign of Leo and most Numerology books have a correct definition of the number three.
The Lion and the Mazzaroth.
John in the book of Revelation calls Christ the Lion of Judah. The Romans nailed a message over his cross. “King of the Jews.” Christ is our King and if we follow him we will be safe. The Lion has often been named the King of the Jungle. Ancient Kings in the near east such as ancient Assyria etc liked to hunt Lions. It was a sport for the Kings and those of noble birth. The sphinx from Egypt had a Lions body to represent the Pharaoh. The sphinx was made in connection with the pyramids and they were all made to ensure that the emperor or pharaoh received eternal life. The sign of Leo has reference to Satan being cast out of our pre-mortal heavenly home. It has a man standing in triumph over the serpent who is trying to get away. The man is Jehovah or Christ the serpent is Lucifer or the devil.
The Color Purple or Indigo.
Purple is made up of the colors red and blue. Since red is similar to the number one and blue is similar to the number eight , people who have a lot of the number three or sign of Leo have the abilities of the numbers one and eight. In the Old Testament the Jewish people used this color to signify royalty and to build their tabernacle, which was their traveling temple or house of God. "Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet stuff; with cherubim skillfully worked shall you make them. Exodus Chapter 26:Verse 1 Later when Solomon built the temple as a permanent structure he used the same colors.
So now send me a man skilled to work in gold, silver, bronze, and iron, and in purple, crimson, and blue fabrics, trained also in engraving, to be with the skilled workers who are with me in Judah and Jerusalem, whom David my father provided. 2 Chron 2:7. Later when Jerusalem is destroyed the Prophet Jeremiah writes of the destruction of Jerusalem, even the rich and the noble ones. Those who feasted on dainties perish in the streets; those who were brought up in purple lie on ash heaps. Lamentations 4:5 It appears that clothing royalty in purple was not only a Jewish tradition but was something done throughout the entire middle east. The King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar is recorded to have said the following as a reward for anyone who could interpret his dream. The king cried aloud to bring in the enchanters, the Chaldeans, and the astrologers. The king said to the wise men of Babylon, "Whoever reads this writing, and shows me its interpretation, shall be clothed with purple, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom." Dan 5:7
Another group of people who were related to Abraham were the Midianites. Their Kings wore purple.
And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was one thousand seven hundred shekels of gold; besides the crescents and the pendants and the purple garments worn by the kings of Midian, and besides the collars that were about the necks of their camels. Judges 8: 26
Christ used the color purple in his parables to denote royalty and riches. "There was a rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. Luke 16:19
In fact when Christ was before the soldiers he was dressed in a purple robe.
15 ¶ And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! Mark Chapter 15 verses 15-18
In the rainbow a form of purple or violet is the last visible color. These colors have the smallest wavelengths and therefore move at the highest frequencies. It symbolizes that when we become perfect we will have obtained the highest level and will become kings and queen’s priests and priestesses of God. Those that become kings will rule over people who did not obtain this level. However instead of servants serving the Kings the Kings will serve the people they rule. Christ taught this concept when he washed his disciples feet. The greatest of all was the servant of all. Through useful service a person obtains their greatest joy. This concept is also taught through the color of the sun itself. It is a yellow orange color. Yellow is the color of the number 7 and corresponds to the planet Mercury. The 6th house or the house of servants or everyday work is similar to the sign of Virgo. The sign of Virgo shows service. When we love (The Sun rules the heart), others we serve them. Or those that we serve we learn to love.
The Fifth House and the Lion - King of the Beasts
After a person has developed their personal power (the 4th house) they need to express it. This is indicative of the fifth house and how we receive joy when we try and succeed in life. It shows how we relax and how we have fun in expressing our selves. This is the house of fun, romance children, creativity, artistic talents and recreation and sports. The Sun is the Natural ruler of this house. In our pre-earth home, each of us had desires to learn from God. He taught us those things that we were interested in learning. Since all of us have different interests we learned different skills and abilities. Christ learned all things and became a God. We were not that intelligent or obedient. Our Father knew that experience would be our best teacher. That is why he lets us learn by our mistakes. As children we learned the skills and talents that we desired. Numerology and Astrology are tools that remind us what those skills and talents were. Rather than believing that a person is imprinted with a pattern at the time of birth I believe that God had us born according to the times that best describe our talents and abilities. In this way Astrology and Numerology becomes a tool that helps us remember our natures not one that fates us. All through our lives we have the ability to change for the better or the worse. By learning the secrets of the past through Astrology and Numerology we can be more efficient and remember our skills today. One of the main reasons why none of us can remember our pre-earth life is because God took that knowledge away from us at birth to see if we would live by faith. In the pre-earth life we all knew God existed. We saw him, now we need to look for God through the signs that he has left us, such as through nature and the stars.
The Lion. Lions are social animals that hunt and live in prides. The females are the hunters and the male spends his time protecting the females and the cubs from other male Lions. Males hunt as well but they hunt the larger prey such as elephants and big game. Male Lions are the only cat species that grows a mane. This mane of hair is the result of the testosterone, which they produce. Castrated Lions loose their manes. Male Lions are loving to their own offspring but unlike the female who will nurse any young cub in the pride, male Lions are known to kill any cub less than a year old not sired by themselves. They do this for breeding purposes. Male Lions are the dominant Lion for about 2-5 years. They live about 15 years in the wild. Lions in the Zoo will live about 25-30 years. A Lion has exactly 30 teeth. I found this fascinating since the number of the Lion is 3.
The letters C, L & U
The letters C, L or U will have a lot of number three characteristics.
These characteristics are similar to the actual Lion animal as well as the Leo sun sign or the number 3.
