The number 19 is a common birth number for anyone who was born on the 19th of any month, but the 1 energy is similar to that of people who have been born on the 1st, 10th or 28th. All of these birth numbers derive their energy and meaning from the root number 1.
However, the number 19 can have a significant meaning for you even if it does not appear in your birth chart. The number 19 is a highly meaningful number, indicating a rebirth of some kind is about to occur.
That is because 19 contains both the beginning of the root number series and its ending.
When you see the number 19 appear randomly in your experience (or in multiples as 38, 57 and so forth) as a time (19:00 is 7pm), a date, a dollar amount, an age or a measurement of some kind, pause and reflect on the significance of what is happening at that moment.
The appearance of 19 may indicate that the end of an old cycle and the beginning of a new cycle is occurring.
