On November 9, Director of the CIA David Petraeus resigned after admitting to an extra-marital affair with Paula Broadwell.

Prior to his assuming the directorship of the CIA, David Howell Petraeus was a four-star general serving over 37 years in the United States Army.

If you add the numbers corresponding to each letter in David Howell Petraeus given name is equals an 85 Destiny Number.

His Destiny, 85 which reduces to 13/4 is the number of sudden, transformative manifestation and power. Even though David Petraeus carries a 50/5 fortunate current name, Petraeus is generally known by his title General Petraeus and Director Petraeus. Both of these names current names are especially challenging for people who have a 4 or 8 in their birth numbers.

His full birthday November 7, 1952, adds up to 26/8 Life Purpose, signifying leadership, leaving behind a legacy and overcoming obstacles to gain strength. He has a 7 day of birth. Intuition and lightning fast insight are symbolized by the number 7. People with a 7 have a great opportunity to reach the top very quickly.

So when Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee, described the news of Petraeus’ resignation due to an extra-marital affair like ‘lightning bolt’, it came as no shock.

Paula Broadwell, the woman Petraeus had the affair with, has a 52/7 Current Name and just entered a 16/7 Personal Year activating Patraeus’ day of birth.

November 9, 2012, the day Petraeus resigned was a 16/7 Universal Date. November 2012 is a 16/7 Universal Month. Amazing, November 9 was a 16/7 Personal Month and Day for Petreaus.

I know what you are thinking … “16 is one of those bad numbers…”

While a 16/7 is not recommended as a current name number, the number 16 (which reduces to 7) in your birth numbers and cycles brings sudden opportunities to shift into new directions if you are not listening and acting on your intuition. If you are ignoring your innate intuitive connection to the Universe, you will feel confronted. You may even feel like ‘a person with a crown on his head being struck by lightning and taking a fall’. In other words, a 16/7 will give you a wake-up call and take you to the next level of spiritual empowerment.

Patraeus just entered a 14/5 personal year on his birthday two days before he resigned. 14 is the number of the media, risk, adventure unexpected events and freedom. He is best known for his counter-insurgency ideas and “hearts and minds” approach to winning supporters among the local populations while in Iraq. Unfortunately with the media coverage, he may be known as the general whose professional fall from grace is as stunning as the career that preceded it.
