Were they destined to divorce?

Before I share my numerology insights about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (and the news of their forthcoming divorce), let me briefly explain what Numerology is and how it works. Numerology is a science of numbers, and it is over 2,500 years old. Pythagoras was the creator of the system that I use, and it's based on the belief that everything in the universe has a vibration. This is especially true when it comes to people and their relationships.

When I use this system, I get three numbers from the person's name and three numbers from their birth date. I also look at the person's full birth certificate name to get their "Destiny Number." With all of this information, I can then do a Numerology Chart Comparison.

Here are Brad and Angelina's Numerology essentials:


Brad Pitt 


Numerology Blueprint: 1 8 9 9 4*/3 Attitude Number

Birth Certificate name:

William Bradley Pitt

Destiny Number: 4


Angelina Jolie 

Numerology Blueprint: 9 6 6 4 5*/1 Attitude Number


Birth Certificate name:

Angelina Jolie Voight

Destiny Number: 6

Note: *signifies the Life Path Number       


When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie first got together, I ran their Numerology Chart Comparison and was immediately concerned.

The Life Path is the most important Number in a Numerology Blueprint, and since Brad Pitt is a 4 Life Path and Angelina Jolie is a 5 Life Path, it would be very difficult for the relationship to sustain itself


Because these two Life Paths can be very toxic to each other in Numerology. When people get stressed, they act out from their Life Path Number, and when those Life Path Numbers are Toxic, there can be a complete meltdown in communication, which can ultimately cause the destruction of the relationship.

The reason people often get together when their Life Path Numbers are Toxic is because this combination often promotes incredible physical chemistry. All you have to do is go back to the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith to witness the amazing chemistry Brad and Angelina had when they first met and fell in love.

The turning point was when they got married. Those closest to Brad and Angelina said they had been arguing more than ever, especially after getting married two years ago. Marriage was possibly the worst thing these two could enter into.

Why did things get so much worse after the marriage?

A 5 Life Path is a free spirit and does not want to be beholden to anyone. They must feel they are free to come and go as they please. And if they do get married, it must be their idea. Angelina had already been married twice before and to do it again was not something she really wanted. Not being married made her feel she was still her own person. The 4 Life Path, however, wants a real commitment and welcomes marriage when they are in love. Brad truly believed that Angelina was the love of his life.

Once they exchanged vows, Angelina stated publicly that her reason for marrying Brad was to please the children; when asked how it felt to be married to Brad Pitt, she said, "Well, I married the father of my children." Which is not exactly "I have finally married the love of my life" or words to that effect.

Here's where the confusion for Brad comes in regarding Angelina:

The day you are born is how you "appear" in Numerology, and since Angelina was born on a 4 day, and Brad is a 4 Life Path, he thought they were much more alike than different.

Having a 4/5 as your Birth Numbers gives you "dualityin your personality, which means what people see is not necessarily what they get. The news reports on their impending divorce say that Brad was completely blindsided, and that makes perfect sense.

Brad is born on a 9 day with a 4 Life Path, and one of the traits that both the 9 and 4 share is wanting to have a lasting love commitment. And, although he famously ended his marriage with Jennifer Aniston, he really was convinced that Angelina was “the one." So not only did the kids want them to get married, Brad did too. 

Angelina does have a 9 as her Soul Number, and another characteristic of the 9 energy is having unresolved issues with your original family and carrying those emotional scars into the present. It is well documented that Angelina has resented her father from her childhood and feels he was horrible to her mother, whom she always adored.

Angelina has a 6 Destiny Number and Brad Has a 4 Destiny Number. The 4 and 6 are all about children and family. So there is no doubt that these two love their children deeply.

If we revisit Angelina’s previous marriage to Billy Bob Thornton, it seems, up to this point, that he was actually the love her of life.

Why do I say this? Because Billy Bob was also born on a 4 day and is a 5 Life Path, just like Angelina. This makes them a “Natural Match” in Numerology which is a powerful connection — both mentally and physically.

Billy Bob was on Nightline promoting his book not too long ago and had this to say about his marriage to Angelina — "I blew it because I didn't think I was good enough for her. We had a great marriage and I chickened out because I didn't feel good enough. That's all that happened. It was no big deal, we never hated each other." Angelina wrote the forward for the book he was promoting, and he went on to say, "She and I are still real close, but we keep our friendship to ourselves. It's sacred."

In this current media frenzy surrounding the breakup, Brad Pitt is being demonized while the FBI investigates possible child abuse during an altercation that occurred on a private jet September 14th. 

Note: Each day has energy and can be compatible or toxic to you.

Using Numerology, to break down the date 9/14/2016 makes it a 5/5/5 day. As I mentioned earlier, the 4 and 5 are Toxic to each other. Since Brad Pitt is a 4 Life Path, with the triple 5 Energy, that date was incredibly Toxic to him, and whatever did happen on that flight has turned his whole world upside down.

I do believe, when all is said and done, it was Angelina who felt trapped in a marriage she never wanted in the first place.

Although Angelina is asking for full custody of their children in their divorce, judging by Brad’s Numerology Chart, he will fight very hard to get joint custody and spend as much time as is humanly possible with his children.

And, no matter how you look at this situation, it is especially sad for their kids, and let’s hope that their welfare is being considered first, by all concerned.
