The Numerology of COVID-19 | Felicia Bender

What an incredibly unsettling time we are experiencing together right now, as a collective.

Let’s see what small window of light numerology might be able to shine on the COVID-19 situation.

If we look at the numerology of the name of the virus, I have found that I see the message in two different layers.

Let me show you.


Here is the numerical break-down for each letter in the alphabet:

1 – A, J, S
2 – B, K, T
3 – C, L, U
4 – D, M, V
5 – E, N, W
6 – F, O, X
7 – G, P, Y
8 – H, Q, Z
9 – I, R

C  O  V  I  D  – 1  9

3     6     4    9    4        

We add “COVID”  = 26/8

Then I look at it this way. 

“COVID” is an 8, which denotes power, finances, authority, control and influence.

Certainly this outbreak is testing our collective identities around this very real material world energy of the 8. 

We’re all challenged to take a deeper look at the core of our material well-being (or dis-ease). 

Since the number “19” is a part of the name of the virus, I find it interesting to look at that influence separately and then put it together, particularly since the number 19 is a Karmic Debt number in numerology.

When the number 19 shows up, it indicates a Karmic Debt being carried forward for correction and balance.

The 19 indicates a selfish abuse of power.


So if we look at the 26/8 (the nuance here is also with the 2 and 6, which is all about love, harmony, nurturing, service, and responsibility) and add it with the 1 (from the 19 |  1 + 9 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1), then we get an overall message that is lodged in the number 9 (8 + 1 = 9).

The 9 is the number of compassion, of universal wisdom, selfless service, and humanitarian focus.

If we decode the message the name COVID-19 is sending, we can see that this is an opportunity to re-create new paradigms and new ways of living in the world that include – and are built upon – the reality that we are an interconnected community and that everything we do has a domino (or a butterfly!) effect.

This is a very simplified explanation and yet sometimes, less is more.

I’m sending out love and strength to all of you because I feel that part of our understanding together, you and I, is based on this idea already. That we ARE connected through through our mutual passion about understanding ourselves and our higher levels of purpose in our lives — and that we connect through this tool of numerology as it supports us to make sense out of what may initially appear rather senseless.

Let’s take a cue from the Italians who have taken to dancing, singing, and music on their balconies as a show of solidarity and also to keep spirits on the upside.

This is NOT to discount the very real ramifications that are being brought about with this pandemic.

No decisions or actions made under acute stress or fear ever have positive results. 

Trade panic for practicing deep breathing! 

Trade stress for letting go and taking a moment to rest. 

We’re all in this together.
