Chaldean Numbers Study: Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla is such an enigmatic figure that he defies true explanation or understanding of who he truly is.  His life is shrouded in mystery and tragedy yet his name continues to interest and mesmerize people many years after his death.  He is both a recognized and unrecognized genius.  His scientific and innovative mind with a depth of spirituality is a combination that is rarely ever seen together.  His own quotes are more adequate to describe his thinking than anything I can say, so with that I will begin his numerical analysis.


Nikola Tesla was born on the 9th of the month in Serbia.  9 is ruled by Mars in Chaldean numerology.  Despite the aggressive and ruthless reputation of Mars, 9 is a number that represents spiritual ascension, higher knowledge, compassion and a deeper understanding of life and the world beyond.  It is such a spiritual number that the Chaldeans did not assign it to letters as a counting device in decoding the numeric value of words.  Words that reduce to 9 include: Joy (9), Numbers (27), Emotions (36), Motivation (45), Religion (27), Meditation (36), Consciousness (54) and Christ (18).  Though this number brings a personality of spiritual peace and collectivism, the Mars energy behind it also attracts strife depending on how it interacts with other numbers in a person’s life.

I used his last name to calculate his INN (Individual Name Number) since that name is how he is most known.  Tesla calculates to 16/7.  The number 7 is represented by Neptune and the Lunar South Node.  Neptune gives the potential for illusions, imagination and aloofness due to a focus on the spiritual world rather than the physical world.  The South Node can bring karmic issues from the past that faces the individual in this life.  16 is a compound number that corresponds with the Tower card of the Tarot, a card ruled by Mars.  This number is connected with plans being destroyed suddenly and unexpectedly.  It also predicts dangerous accidents, falls or blows to the head.  Due to his rivalry with Thomas Edison, Tesla’s work was stolen, his workshop destroyed and he was ran out of the town where he practiced his work at one point in his life.  Despite his amazing mind and innovative discoveries in electricity, he was disregarded and sacrificed at the expense of other inventors and scientists who appeared more grounded.

The sacrificial and martyrdom nature of his life was due to his astrological sign and its corresponding number.  He was a Cancer sun with a Period Number of 2 in its negative expression.  His entire birth date added to 20.  2 in its negative expression brings in a smothering of ideas and plans, heartbreak (29) and a general sense of misery.  The number 20 forces the individual to face emotional pain and eventually to transmute this energy into spiritual (29) awakening, like its corresponding Tarot card, Judgement.  Tesla’s life shows he was able to do this despite his life’s adversity brought on by the energy of Mars, the Moon and also Saturn.

Nikola Tesla’s TNN (Total Name Number) and Hidden Number both reduce to 8, the number of Saturn.  His TNN equaled to 35/8.  35 brings challenges with destruction caused by association with others, partnerships and alliances which means that it was quite possible that it was those who Tesla chose to work with (or receive funds from) that led to his ultimate destruction.  35 is a warning number.  8, due to it Saturnian nature, brings hard work and dedication yet it also attracts power plays, manipulation and hardships.  This is magnified by the number 9 found in his Day Number.  8 and 9 have conflicting energy and clash when combined together.  Despite this, Tesla’s Hidden Number of 17/8 is probably the lightest and most benefic expression of the 8 energy.  This number promises the overcoming of adversity through the heights of personal and spiritual advancement that was began in previous lives.  This is a number of karmic reward and the finding of true love as Tesla found daily in his work (which he spent nearly 20 hours a day performing) and eventually found within through pure enlightenment.  He has become a beacon of light and hope to many who struggle against adversity brought on by their heightened awareness of life beyond our physical senses.

“I know that gravity is prone to everything you need to fly and my intention is not to make flying devices (aircraft or missiles), but teach individual to regain consciousness on his own wings … Further; I am trying to awake the energy contained in the air. There are the main sources of energy. What is considered as empty space is just a manifestation of matter that is not awakened.  No empty space on this planet, nor in the Universe.. In black holes, what astronomers talk about, are the most powerful sources of energy and life.”

I highly recommend you read through this interview where he speaks on his own perspective concerning the unseen and unknown (by most), it is one of the most enlightening and inspiring interviews I have ever read:
