THE SEVEN ARCHETYPE
Born Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin on October 7, 1952 - I found THREE SEVENS in Putin's numerology chart. A triple aspect in numerology is highly unusual and a triple seven indicates that Vladimir Putin is one of the sharpest intellectual minds on the planet.
In one word, SEVEN is the THINKER. The power of the SEVEN is the ability to break any subject down to its finest atoms, understand its fundamental principles and recombine them into a new configuration. Sevens can draw connections from widely disparate fields to provide new solutions foreign to the status quo. Interestingly, the SEVEN was loved by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras not just for its mastery of logic, but also for its metaphysical prowess, the realm of philosophy. Many ground breaking inventors, scientists, and philosophers have a Seven aspect in their chart, and Putin has this aspect in triplicate.
LIFE PATH 7
The Life Path Number is the single most important number in numerology as it represents the core of one's personality. A Life Path 7 indicates that Putin was born as a Thinker / Philosopher type, far from what most would expect in his role as a politician and statesman.
The Birthday represents a skill set that is given to assist in the Life Path. Putin has incredible intellectual prowess, with a complete understanding of the situation at hand, he can easily provide unique solutions that 'aren't on the board' and are totally unexpected by more rigid thinkers. As they say, 'Never Play Chess With a Russian!'
EXPRESSION / DESTINY 7
The Destiny or Expression number represents the direction of one's life, in simple terms 'where things are going'. The Seven is typically seen as a thinker, academic archetype, which would seem at odds with his long career in intelligence and politics. However the Seven can also assume a metaphysical role more closely associated with philosophers, sages and seers.
Given his TRIPLE Seven, which is highly unusual, I feel it is not out of bounds to consider Putin as a Philosopher King archetype, one who informs his political decisions with a deep philosophical understanding rather than a simple materialist mindset typically associated with politics.
