You and Your Birth Number

Your most immediate and important number, which remains constant, comes from your date of birth. It is your birth number that gives your individual nature, character, quality and personal vibration, in addition to the kind of persons you’re likely to be drawn to or they to you.

If you were born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th of any month consider yourself a number 1 person who likes to win. By nature, you’re strong willed, independent and don’t like taking “no” for an answer. You’re original, daring, inventive and very definite in your points of view. As a rule you don’t like second place positions, but would prefer to take the lead every time if given the chance. This is why you’d make an excellent manager, supervisor, administrator, department head, and the like. As a 1 person, you can be direct and to the point when dealing with others. But that’s because you like to get to the bottom-line right away. The number 1 as your birth number is ruled by the Sun and therefore you’d get along well with anyone born in the months of February, April and August. Sunday and Tuesday are your best days of the week.

If you were born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th or 29th of any month you are a number 2 person, the kind of person that takes others into consideration. Gentle, imaginative, artistic and romantic by nature, it’s the little things that mean a lot. And because you are generally sensitive and receptive to people, situations and surroundings, you should choose your friends and living environment initially with the greatest of care. As a rule, you have a love of dance, music, poetry, painting, drama and acting. If you had to select a motto or two, it would probably read, “Love, Peace and Harmony”, or “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. Your particular birth number is ruled by the Moon and therefore tends to get along with those born in the months of May, July and October. Of the seven days of the week, Monday and Friday are your best days.

If you were born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st or 30th of any month numerically speaking, you are a number 3 person who enjoys expressing yourself. You are generally ambitious, determined to succeed despite the odds and don’t like restraints of any kind imposed on you, in addition to a burning desire to reach the top. You have excellent people skills and are basically popular or well known wherever you go. Being career oriented by nature, you’re not afraid to put in the required or extra hours at work, but you’d prefer having authority over others, rather than being dictated too. You generally excel in areas related to government, religion or the arts and take great pride in your name as well as reputation. Jupiter is the ruler of your birth number thus attracting those born in March and December. Accordingly, your best days out of seven are Thursday and Friday.

 If you were born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st of any month you would be considered as a number 4 person, and suggest it's not easy being you at times. That’s only because you like being different or a stand-out in someway. It’s also because you tend to take the opposite side of public opinion, thus creating secret enemies for yourself. But the bottom line is your sense of accomplishment, purpose and vision if nothing else. You have a mechanical, mathematical and inventive turn of mind which may explain your love of gadgets and gizmos. Honestly, you have your moody moments and tend to be easily wounded in feelings which you mask well. You have a strong affinity for the odd and unusual and love being unique in some way. Uranus is the ruler of your number, thus attracted to those in the months of February, June and August. Sunday and Wednesday are your best days out the bunch.

 If you were born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd of any month without question you are a number 5 person. You make friends easily and usually have more than your share. You have a strong urge for change, a need to travel and love a variety of experiences. That’s why the secret to romantically holding on to you is to let you go. You have an intellectual mind and therefore avoid hard, manual labor when possible. So making a living or livelihood will come through your brain power instead! Since you’re adaptable by nature as well, you actually seem to thrive under stressful, emergency or crisis situations. So it’s equally important you choose your friends and surroundings with care. Your only challenge from time to time may be procrastination and it’s only because you're quick in action and thought so you wait till the last minute. Mercury is the ruler of your sign attracting those born in February, June and September. Wednesday and Sunday are your best days.

 If you were born on the 6th, 15th or 24th of any month, you are a number 6 person. As a rule you have a love of all things beautiful, tasteful, colorful, comforting, and might I add, expensive! You just can’t help yourself. You have a beauty, charm, smile and personality that usually wins others over. You take great pride when it comes to duty, obligations and responsibilities, which is why others often come to you for advice. This is one of the reasons why you’d do well in the service industry, such as health, human resources, education and the like. You also have a gift of reading people like a book, backed by a strong sense of justice as well as right and wrong. You usually set high standards for others, but even higher ones for yourself. Venus is the ruler of your birth number which attracts those born in May, July and October, while Friday and Thursday are generally your better days.

If you were born on the 7th, 16th or 25th of any month you are in your special way considered a number 7 person. You would best be described as the strong, silent type because of your strongly marked individuality. And having such a mind of your own may also explain why you may prefer being your own best company. You have strong points of view and are usually knowledgeable, well read and always in constant search as to the cause and effect of why things happen the way they do. You may also have gifts along the lines of research, analysis and investigation since you like to know what’s going on and would do well if followed as a career. Your only challenge is, worry. You can’t seem to get enough of it at times. And almost always, it’s much to do about nothing. Neptune rules your birth number as well as those born in the months of March and July. Monday, along with Sunday are your best choices of the week.

 If you were born on the 8th, 17th or 26th of any month you are a number 8 person. As you get older, like fine wine,  you only get better. But like the number 4 person, it’s not always easy being you either. Many times, you may be perceived as being cold, or emotionally distant or detached. However, this is only a perception, for deep down, despite your intense and forceful personality, you’re really warm and sweet, with a heart of gold. So perhaps your motto should be: “to know me is to love me”. Your approach to life is basically simple: serious minded, no non-sense and down to earth. But because of it, the tendency may be feelings of loneliness and misunderstandings. With Saturn being the ruler of your birth number, this may explain why those in the months of January and October are drawn to you. Saturday and Friday are usually your best days of the week.

 If you were born on the 9th, 18th or 27th of any month there’s no doubt you’re a number 9 person. Because of it you are bold, bubbly, courageous and usually have a very good opinion of yourself. This is why you’re not concerned about what others think. Global or universal by nature, you tend to get along with the whole spectrum of humanity. Forceful and magnetic as well, your strong will and determined personality will not allow others to dictate terms to you. That would be a bad idea on their part even if they tried. However, if left to your own devices, you would prefer to run things, to take charge of others, as well as organize things on a grand scale. Without question you’re born to lead rather than follow. Since the planet Mars is the ruler of your birth number, this would explain the attraction to those coming out of the months of April and November. The best days for you are Tuesday followed by Sunday.
