Today we’re going to dive into the meaning of the number seven and come up with one or two ideas for things we can say in a Lo Shu reading.
7 = Spirituality
When the number 7 comes up as something to discuss, we know it means Spirituality, but how does that apply to a person?
Of all the number meanings, I think the word “spirituality” is the one that’s the most dangerous. Okay, danger might be too strong, but that word has wildly different meanings for people and it’s often incredibly personal. An evangelical Christian and a believer in guidance by the stars might both say they’re spiritual, but they have very different definitions. And if you start down the opposite path from the person you’re reading, well, let’s just say it puts a damper on things.
So what do you do? My fix could look like some to be the coward’s way out, but I don’t use the word spiritual to mean any kind of religion. I use it to describe a person who believes there’s more than just what we can experience with our natural senses. Someone who seeks out the unknown. That can apply to just about everyone who thinks of themselves as spiritual.
A person with the spirituality trait is someone who’s inclined to seek answers about our existence; someone who has a sense of inner peace and calm and avoids unnecessary conflict or drama. Many of those people also have empathy, compassion, and a desire to help others.
If the person has a religious leaning, they might be good fit as a pastor, rabbi, or other religious leader. Those with a more “generic” spirituality might work as a therapist, teacher or professor, or artist/writer.
Your homework: As always, do some brainstorming and see if you can come up with more ideas about someone with the Spirituality character trait. Then write up a couple sentences that you could say during a reading. You don’t need to memorize them, but if you write them out they’ll be *much* easier to recall when you’re doing an actual reading.
Next time, the number 8!
