I'm sure everyone knows that John Lennon and May Pang once saw a UFO together. But did you know that John Lennon had an interest in the occult? This is one interest that he shared with his idol, Elvis Presley. Both John and Elvis were into Theosophy and numerology. Both studied a book called "Cheiro's Book of Numbers."
When John and Yoko bought the house near Billy Joel, he sent his assistant, Fred Seaman, to the nearest New Age book store to stock up the bookshelves in the house. Among the titles were books by the Russian occultist, H. P. Blavatsky.
John and Yoko also employed a Tarot reader, and Yoko was versed in some Japanese esoterica as well.
There is not a whole lot of information about all this, but I have come across several references in my reading and I wish I could delve deeper into it.
According to Cheiro's system of numerology, John Lennon 's number is 9.
Here are some of the things Cheiro says about people who are 9's, and of course they describe John perfectly:
"They usually have difficult times in their early years, but generally they are, in the end, successful by their grit, strong will, and determination.
In character, they are hasty in temper, impulsive, independent, and desire to be their own masters.
When the number 9 is noticed to be more than usually dominant in the dates and events of their lives they will be found to make great enemies, to cause strife and opposition wherever they may be, and they are often wounded or killed either in warfare or in the battle of life.
They have great courage and make excellent soldiers or leaders in any cause they espouse.
Their greatest dangers arise from foolhardiness and impulsiveness in word and action...
They usually experience many quarrels and strife in their home life, either with their own relations or with the family they marry into.
They strongly resent criticism, and even when not conceited, they have always a good opinion of themselves, brooking no interference with their plans...
They are resourceful and excellent in organisation, but they must have the fullest control; if not, they lose heart and stand aside and let things go to pieces.
For affection and sympathy they will do almost anything, and the men of this number can be made the greatest fools of, if some clever woman gets pulling at their heartstrings."
