Fred Astaire: 5/10/1899-6/22/1987

Astaire was destined for greatness. The year of his birth, 1899, contains three 9s and as 9 is the number signifying fame and fortune and exulted status there was little doubt that he would achieve the stardom he enjoyed. 

The name "Astaire" translates to a 7 in numerology which symbolizes spirituality, Heaven and all things celestial. 7s focus on the non-physical.  I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that he devoted his life  transcending the material world.   That is, through his dancing,  he defied the laws of gravity and its physical constraints .

One of his missing Karmic Numbers is a 3 (these numbers tell us what we need to do in this lifetime in order to correct for one's previous actions and choices from a previous life). 3s are the charmers and optimists of the Universe. They are often entertainers and excel at communicating. Clearly, Astaire compensated magnificently for this past apparent lack during his phenomenal stage and film career. There were few actors who were as charming and attractive.

Astaire died in an 8 year which in addition to symbolizing wealth and good fortune and strength also represents "infinity" as the number 8 is also the infinity symbol turned upright. This symbol is associated with  the matters of the soul ( consistent with the 7)  as well as with eternity, perfection and equilibrium which seem to me to reflect what Astaire and his art were all about e.g., the consummate artist.
