I drew up my family's and I got:
Mom - 1
Sibling - 6
Me - 8
Dad - 9
I briefly reflected on this and truth be told, it really made sense. It helped me understand my family a little better. But we still have to remember that each person has a life path and it is no more unique that zodiac signs or blood types.
Whatever number repeatedly identifies itself in our lives are only, for a lack of better word, signs. I for one always keep seeing 5 around me and I treat it as a reminder that I need a little adventure in my life.
