Bella and Edward: Beauty and the Bite

Well, I thought it would be fun to do the numbers of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, two of the most popular fictional characters ever to grace a printed page or Kindle for that matter.  Of course, these two angst-ridden, crazy-in-love-I can't-keep-my-hands-off-you youths are the stars of  Stephannie Meyer's insanely successful Twilight series. Unfortunately, I don't think we know Bella's or Edward's birthdays which would have made a reading all that more fun and juicy. I will just have to work with their numbers, so here I go.

The first thing I always look for is to see if the couple shares any of the same letters in their names and, yes, Bella and Edward do. They share an 'e' and an 'a' which are vowels and vowels symbolize the 'Soul' number of a name, meaning they represent the emotional life and passions of that person. What's interesting is that both Bella's and Edward's vowels add up to a '6' as 'e' corresponds to a '5' and 'a' corresponds to a '1' and five plus one makes six. '6' is the number of family and all things domestic. The creation and maintenance of a home is all important. '6' emits a harmonious frequency as it is ruled by the planet Venus. Of course, Venus is the goddess of love and beauty and is assoicated with the principles of balance and equilibrium. It also corresponds to the Lovers in the Major Arcana making this couple a perfect match! I wonder if Ms. Meyer had any knowledge of numerology when she created these two charaters or if there numerolgical compatibility was pure coincidence. Personally, I don't believe in coincidence. No, I suspect that her spirit guides had a helping hand in shaping Bella and Edward with her and it was no 'accident' that they turned out to be cosmic soulmates.

Cullen also contains two of the same letters found in Bella e.g., 'e'and 'l' with the 'l' being a double. This, again, is a sign of  high compatibility between two people.  But what makes them especially compatible is their sharing  that double 'l'. As the Chinese say, good things come in pairs making the traits associated wtih the letter 'l' all that more pronounced. 'l' corresponds to the number '3' and '3' are the optimists and charmers. '3' is ruled by the planet Jupiter and is therefore assoicated with good luck e.g., 'three's a charm'.


  1. you should do a comparision on the actors numbers since they are dating(maybe)
