This combination is the same as same as 1st and 13th birthdays. The 10 reduces to a 1, (1 + 0 = 1). The Zero in the 10th day does not add any new features, nor does it take away any characteristics of the 1 vibration. At most, it may emphasise certain 1 features.

13TH AND 13TH BIRTHDAYS
At first glances this combination, in regard to personality, may be reasonably compared to one between identical twins. This may be so to some extent in many facets of their personalities if both were born in the same month, and even more in the same year. As this situation will be most unusual it would be more realistic to regard them as somewhat similar personalities regardless of their month and year of birth. Other creative influences are certain to separate them into distinct individuals. Their Destiny numbers or Life Path numbers and the vibrations created by their names will be responsible for several differences. It is not within the scope of the present analysis to go into all such ramifications, but only to compare the basic effects of the vibrations of their birthday upon each partner.
The Thirteen is basically a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4). The qualities of the 1 and 3 vibrations operate, for the most part, in the foreground of the personality and are therefore more noticeable while those of the 4 operate in a less conspicuous but equally effective manner in the background. All three forces function in ways that create an exceptionally talented individual. In addition, Thirteens are naturally positive in their outlook on life and therefore conscious and confident of their ability to succeed in whatever they undertake. A creative imagination is backed up by manual and physical dexterity, and reinforced further by willpower, ambition and a strong ego. These attributes are not reduced or inhibited by vibrations from other areas of the personality.
Sensitivity and response to a wide range of stimuli on the mental and physical realms greatly increase their versatility. Success in their chosen vocation is assured. With potential for considerable diversity in employment it is difficult to specify any special areas of work in which they would more likely excel. However, some avenues open to them are engineering, accountancy, business of any sort, the armed forces, police, prisons, fire service, the building industry, architecture, real estate, statistics, choreography, music and literature.
The majority of their assets favour success in employment rather than home duties. They are not domesticated individuals. Attributes needed for a harmonious intimate relationship need to be carefully nurtured in a Thirteen/Thirteen partnership. They are too much alike to enter willingly and profitably into a relationship based on a mutual exchange of talents. The need to cooperate, support, negotiate, adjust and surrender is not innate characteristics in either. Both will want to make decisions and both are equally capable of doing so. In a general sense superiority is essentially individual and not determined by gender. If an individual man proves to be superior to an individual woman, or vice versa, it will be an instance of individual endowment and not the superiority of one type of personality or gender over the other. A Thirteen/Thirteen partnership will certainly be one of equals in which one will not yield to the other nor will one call for the surrender of any part of the other’s individuality, knowing that they would not succeed. Both take a direct and practical approach to life in general as they see it in a straightforward and uncomplicated light. Confidence in themselves and a natural know-how enable them to deal with practical affairs quickly and effectively. They are usually unwilling to accept the ideas of others and especially have any of their own ideas questioned or their actions found to be at fault.
Much will be demanded of these partners by society, and happily they will prove equal to its demands. Their qualities of leadership, positivity and versatility cannot remain unused either by themselves or by others. They pride themselves on being practical, innovative and up to date, and are constantly on the lookout for improved ways of doing things. In a social scene they may display a tendency to listen only to one person at a time and avoid participation in conversation with several people at the same time. They are not always good or patient listeners and are not influenced by the opinions and actions of others. Unable to put up with undecided situations they insist on finalising things in clear-cut and unambiguous ways. They expect quick results for their efforts, and usually get them. An occupational and social advantage possessed by both is a good sense of humour and the readiness to work as hard as anyone else. They do, however, possess a keen sense of their own dignity and may not always sense the emotional tone of an individual or a group. Consequently, they may give the impression of being indifferent to the wellbeing of others. Competition between these partners for the limelight is likely to remain a perennial performance.
Oral communication will be intermittent rather than continuous. Both possess the gift of speech which is used most effectively when required, but both prefer action to words. Their verbal effectiveness is such that they are able to use a minimum of words to express themselves clearly and adequately. Their ability to mentally reduce a problem to its essential details obviates the need for much detailed elucidation or repetition. Their conversation is always informative as they choose topics that make people better for listening to them. Here again, a great degree of rivalry will enter their conversation as both will emphatically maintain their points of view on any particular matter and resent interruption or contradiction.
These partners are not likely to relax with their feet up on lounge chairs during non-working hours. Other outlets are needed to expend some of their suppressed vitality and the employment of talents not used during working hours. Any form of sport can be taken up by them and excelled in due to their mental alertness and physical fitness, and their unique ability to think and act simultaneously usually places them ahead of their competitors. A lively participation in physical activity is not their only form of enjoyment and relaxation. Creativity in all the fine arts, especially music, sculpture, pottery, ceramics, carpentry and the decorative arts is a gift enjoyed by all Thirteens. Home maintenance will not be neglected, and a distinct creative flavour will infuse all home decoration. Outside help will be called in only for specialised work or when time does not permit jobs being done by them.
These partners are usually high income earners. They are also wise investors who are, at the same time, prepared to make bold but responsible moves. They are not gamblers by nature and it is extremely unlikely that they would look to gambling as a form of income. They are also responsible buyers who would habitually look for full value for money spent, and yet do not hesitate to indulge in luxury items of food, drink and other creature comforts.
The main obstacle in this relationship, as mentioned earlier, is the tendency of each partner to overlook the strong will and the physical and mental assets of the other. Rather than surrendering to their innate distaste for cooperation and collaboration they should draw upon their natural level-headedness and work as a team. When this is done no limits can be placed on their achievements. Rivalry should be dismissed instantly as this would be a mutually destructive habit. Both are likely to experience emotional blocks because an outlet for easy release of emotion is not found in their birthday vibrations. Presence in the birth month or year of an emotional number will not help this condition to any appreciable degree. As they are usually not able to let themselves go and make an open display of their feelings they may be insensitive to the emotional states of others and of each other. The fact that they do not demonstrate emotion, however, is not an indication that they are not emotionally moved. There is as much emotion in the Thirteen as there is in anyone else. Their authoritative body language usually obscures their emotional nature and their natural distaste for emotional demonstration.
13TH AND 14TH BIRTHDAYS
A Thirteen/Fourteen partnership will emerge as one between multi-talented individuals who apply a positive approach to life in general. In spite of this, their natural ability to handle all practical matters as self-assured individuals who dislike interference may interrupt and delay the formation of an interdependent and close relationship. Until certain definite concessions are made by both a relationship based on mutual exchange of ideas, talents and a joint execution of their plans will be difficult to establish. Being equally capable of standing on their own feet they do not look to others for support, and would show indifference when help is offered, or resentment of any adverse opinions of their ways of doing things. These attitudes are created not only by their spirit of independence and self-sufficiency but also by the absence in their birthday vibrations of qualities conducive to cooperation, negotiation and association. These individuals are what they are by the clear existence of several personality traits. By the same token, what they are is also implied by the nature of what they are not. One can imagine that this partnership could devolve into one in which either partner may at times say “whatever you can do, I can do better”. However, this may not become the norm as differences in upbringing, while activating certain abilities in one partner, may have allowed others to remain dormant in the other. In such instances mutual help can be sought and promptly received.
Although the 13th day creates a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4), characteristics of the 1 and 3 vibrations are equally active and conspicuous as those of the 4. All three vibrations act in unison, each providing what the others do not have in sufficient quantity. Most importantly, they do not introduce contradictory features that cause an unbalance in the personality. Although some tentative temptations may arise Thirteens do not allow themselves to be drawn into different directions that could be the cause of uncertainty and instability. Most Thirteens should be able to maintain a steady course of action. Basically, the 1 vibration provides the willpower to do so. The gift of the 3 is a creative imagination and extroverted attitudes while the 4 gives practicality and a down-to-earth disposition. A noticeable absence is a vibration from the emotional plane which would allow easy release of emotion. While this condition may not interfere with success in public life, and may in fact work as an advantage, it may however cause certain misunderstandings in an intimate relationship, especially with a partner who needs and expects demonstration of sentiment. The Fourteen fortunately does not. The 14th day fashions a Five personality (1 + 4 = 5). Here again, the attributes of the 1 and 4 are as effective as those of the 5, and all three combine advantageously to form a well-integrated individual. The combined powers of the 1 and 4 contribute qualities such a willpower, self-discipline, vital energy and physical health and strength. The 5 introduces the personality into a world of adventure and experience. When the 5 powers are evoked the Fourteen is prepared to try anything that is new and challenging. Although the 5 vibration belongs to the emotional plane, demonstration of emotion by this personality is held in check by the force of the undemonstrative 1 and 4 features.
Both partners are capable of meeting life’s challenges with predominant characteristics of optimism and self-confidence. In the event of these features being weak in one or the other it could only be due to an inhibited upbringing, and could be evoked in full strength when they progress into adulthood and earlier restrictions are removed. Their supply of natural skills is always equal to the demand and often in excess of demand, and is a condition which makes them go ahead and create opportunities for success in life. As mentioned earlier, the ability to make independent decisions and solve their own problems without having to consult others has to be carefully addressed when they find themselves in an intimate relationship. This natural tendency to act without consultation has to be seen as a detriment to a harmonious relationship, and overcome. Although both partners are capable of achieving success in any venture on their own steam their measure of success as individuals will not be equal to what they could achieve if they act in unison. It is not in the nature of either partner to accept the role of a follower. In a partnership of equals they need not fall into confrontation or get in each other’s way, but could work together by overriding the desire for competition or rivalry. They could even go so far as settling for certain active roles and certain passive roles, and thereby obtain the best results. A passive role will entail the giving of advice and moral support and not one of indifference or withdrawal. This may not be too difficult as neither of the two suffers from an inferiority complex with egos that need defending or boosting. Their egos are strong, yet not excessively inflated. Consequently, they do not possess an inflated image of themselves that could refuse to acknowledge the advantages of combined action. The chances are that the Fourteen may take upon themselves domestic tasks with greater willingness than their Thirteen partner. However, their preparedness to work hard both indoors and outdoors should not be taken for granted. The Thirteen is not incapable of undertaking an equal share of domestic responsibility. With both working on allocated duties they could minimise time spent on domestic work as well as maintain a high quality of living.
The social needs of these partners reveal few differences, and these differences act to their advantage. By virtue of the influence of the 3 vibration the Thirteen’s need for company is more frequent, and there will be a tendency to assume a conspicuous role in any social scene. A Fourteen would rather involve themselves in the various tasks related to a social gathering or function than take up an entertaining role. They feel little need to interact frequently on a social level because time spent in some form of productive activity is more important or precious than time spend in social intercourse. Competition for the spotlight will be kept at a minimum between these partners. Fourteens will not envy the sparkle and fine sense of humour generated by the Thirteen and neither will Thirteens challenge the recognition received by Fourteens for their expertise in all practical matters. Basically, the Thirteen will be the talker and entertainer and the Fourteen, the worker. But these roles can be temporarily interchanged at any time. Thirteens may be more dependent or expectant of social approbation while Fourteens will keep themselves too busy to worry about what others think of them. Any function organised by these partners is bound to be a success as it is not in the nature of either to leave any loose ends that could cause embarrassment. Both can enjoy mutual friends and acquaintances. It is not likely that one will strike out in a direction displeasing to the other.
Fluency of speech should come easier to the Thirteen through the powers of the 3 vibration. This force is responsible not only for fluency of speech but also for a voice of fine tonal quality and the individual’s capacity to build up and use an extensive vocabulary. The 1 and 3 aspects combine to contribute authoritative body language through which their natural leadership qualities are displayed. Fourteens are not without fluency of speech when they become animated while discussing or defending their favourite ideals and interests. In addition, the 5 aspect which also provides fluency of speech, also introduces emotional expression and effusive body language. While this will be the case with someone born on the 5th day of the month it will not be so with a qualified Five such as the Fourteen. In general, emotional expression in the Fourteen is held in check by the qualities of the 1 and 4 vibrations which do not favour any form of sentimental demonstration. A Fourteen, however, is not free from displays of anger and intolerance. Their conversation is usually confined to practical matters helpful to their listeners, while that of the Thirteen will not be too different, instead including light entertainment. The Thirteen is in a better position to appreciate and delight in the funny side of life.
Both partners possess the knack of getting the best possibilities out of any situation in which they find themselves. As well integrated individuals they strive to maintain balance between the artistic, scientific, imaginative and practical aspects of life. This tendency will be seen in the ways they use their recreational time. Both need to be involved in some form of activity in order to give meaning and purpose to their existence. They are not types that choose to sit around doing nothing productive or indulge too much in passive forms of recreation such as listening to music, watching television, working on the Internet and other electronic devices. Both may willingly divide their leisure hours between self time and shared time. However, they may discover that their need to enjoy time by themselves or take up independent hobbies may be greater than their need to work together.
Money should never be a problem in this partnership as both are endowed with the capacity to earn a good living. Their leisure time could also be used for income producing activities. Work and pleasure can be combined without detriment to their wellbeing as neither partner is likely to take either area of activity to extremes. Both are courageous and usually physically strong individuals. As they do not allow themselves to be too emotionally disturbed during any of their activities, sicknesses caused by emotional turmoil should not often affect them. Both possess an aspect of personality that is fond of spending as well as a balancing aspect that is fond of saving. The 3 in the Thirteen and the 5 in the Fourteen will be responsible for the former and the shared 4 for the latter. The 1 aspect shared by both gives them the willpower to control any desire for irresponsible use of money as in reckless gambling and rash investments. As both are on an even keel, as it were, in regard to money and its use, very few problems should be anticipated in this area of their relationship. Each will, however, need a certain amount of freedom to spend a portion of their income without having to account for their actions.
As the tendency in each to solve personal problems without having to consult others may hinder their chances of an intimate and unified relationship, they should develop a habit of opening out to each other and making joint decisions. They should do so even in ordinary mundane matters and agree to reciprocal concessions when necessary. Once they realise that they are in fact not greatly divided in their general attitudes towards life they will also appreciate the advantages of an interdependent relationship. As mentioned earlier differences in family background are certain to activate a particular set of abilities in each while others may remain dormant. One should seek to help the other make maximum use of the strong aspects while helping to evoke the weaker ones. By doing so, the same level of interest can be maintained by both in any particular activity. Both are capable of working under pressure while keeping their emotions under control. The success of this partnership eventually rests on the extent each is prepared to give and take. In the degree they enter into a reciprocal agreement, not only in material affairs, but also in sentimental exchanges, to that degree will their relationship flourish. Qualities such as loyalty, trustworthiness, steadfastness and friendship are present in abundance in both. All they need to do is let go of their natural urge to act purely as individuals.
13TH AND 15TH BIRTHDAYS
An uncommon feature in a Thirteen/Fifteen combination is the presence of odd numbers or active vibrations in the foreground, and of even numbers or receptive vibrations in the background. Consequently, the outer personality of individuals born on these days is governed by active forces and the inner personality by receptive forces. The significance of this condition will be seen in the capacity of these individuals to act by means of extroverted urges that enable them to obtain what they want out of life. At the same time they are gifted with the ability to slow down, take account of their circumstances, avoid extremes and enjoy what they possess. The latter features also enable them to overcome self-centred interests and devote a portion of their time and talents towards service to others. In other words, both personalities, either individually or collectively, are endowed with ample qualifications to create good fortune by their own efforts while not expecting it to be thrust upon them. The 1 vibration present in considerable strength in both will be the motivating force for their individuality, self-confidence, determination, ambition, willpower and self-direction that will enable them to do so. It also provides indisputable qualities of leadership, decision and originality. Before venturing further into other aspects of these personalities it can be safely assumed that there will be a good measure of confrontation when two such dynamic and self-assured individuals form a relationship. The situation may in fact be intensified by other areas of their birth date which may provide additional talents and personality traits. The 3 and 5 vibrations, although operating on the mental and emotional planes respectively, have many features in common as well as others that are different but complement each other. The 3 provides a fertile imagination while the 5 complements it with versatility, flexibility, daring and restlessness. If the Thirteen, by virtue of the 3 force, sees the grass greener on the other side of the fence, the Fifteen, by virtue of the 5 will go ahead without hesitation and try it out. At the same time, the position could also be reversed with the 5 providing the inspiration and the 3 the follow-up. As the Thirteen is basically a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4), characteristics of the 4 vibration stabilise the personality and help these individuals complete whatever they undertake. The temptation to turn to something new before completing what they have already taken up, which is always a problem with imaginative and multi-talented individuals, is overcome to a large extent by the orderly and settled nature of the 4. A similar condition exists in the Fifteen. Restlessness, experimentation, curiosity and the desire for frequent change, which are natural features of the 5 vibration, are held in check by the home loving and rational thought processes of the 6 vibration (1 + 5 = 6). Both partners, therefore, possess inbuilt features that ensure reliability, system and performance behind outward activity.
These partners should be seen not only by what characteristics they possess in strength but also by what qualities they are deficient in. A disposition towards cooperation, negotiation and sharing are not natural features of the 1, 3 and 5 vibrations. At the same time the 3 aspect is too mentally restless and the 5 too physically restless to settle into a relaxed and harmonious lifestyle. If allowed free rein the 3 and 5 aspects will interfere with the chances of these partners maintaining a harmonious relationship. This is not likely to happen, however, as the 4 in the Thirteen and the 6 in the Fifteen strongly favour a cooperative relationship based on a comfortable and established way of life, conscious of mutual obligations and free from turmoil and unnecessary change. The willpower of the 1, shared by both, can be used to establish a balance between these active and passive aspects.
Neither partner can expect to assume a leading role in the expectation that the other would follow. By and large, this can only be a partnership in which each will need to develop a preparedness to enter into a relationship of equals. When they are prepared to listen to each other both will discover that their combined ideas and actions will be much more beneficial than independent action. Once again, the competitive spirit so strong in active vibrations will be controlled when their passive or receptive aspects are summoned. Rivalry may be taken to strict limits and no further, and usually conducted on a fairly friendly basis. Relative indifference to competition, the love of ease and domestic harmony sooner or later emerge as mitigating factors. With several marketable skills these partners will choose to enter the work force instead of following a domestic way of life. Here, once more, the 4 and 6 vibrations will come to their aid and prevent conflict between their occupational roles and domestic responsibilities. These forces introduce a love of home and family life in addition to providing a strong sense of responsibility in whatever work they undertake. All household tasks can be equally distributed with the confidence that they will be dutifully carried out.
‘I’ and ‘My’ thought processes may be more pronounced in the Thirteen. The Fifteen finds it easier to shift from this state into a ‘We’ and ‘Us’ mode of thought as the 5 and 6 vibrations create a more expanded field of consciousness. These differences will be observed not only in their own interactions but also in their interactions with others at social and business levels. Thirteens and Fifteens are not introverts or loners. Both enjoy social contact and their social outlook will not reveal differences that could give rise to discord. Both are able to make and keep friends and acquaintances without much effort. Marriage or a permanent relationship will not become a substitute or replacement for previous social activity. While former associations may to some extent be altered they would, for the most part, be maintained and enjoyed by both partners. The Fifteen in particular, will be comfortable and communicative in the company of both sexes and all age groups. Both maintain their individuality in group activity as neither feels the need to identify with a well known individual or group in order to feel adequate or uplifted. In other words, they do not need borrowed strength. They may often end up controlling a social scene rather than be led or influenced by it. In various ways they usually contribute more than others and consequently earn a reputation as good entertainers. They enter into a social gathering to entertain as well as to be entertained with the former motive being stronger. There may certainly exist some degree of competition between them as it will not be easy for one to remain quiet and unmoved while the other occupies the spotlight.
Thirteens and Fifteens possess a more or less equivalent capacity for oral expression. Frustration or any form of hindrance is seldom experienced while expressing their views on matters relating to material things or mental concepts. However, fluency of speech may not always help in the expression of sentiment. Both may experience a degree of blockage or impediment when they attempt to reveal their inner feelings. Thirteens may have more difficulty in this regard. Fifteens have their moments when they are able to do so with the help of their 5 aspect. The absence of a free flow of emotion will not act as a disadvantage in this relationship as neither partner would welcome frequent effusions of sentiment or physical demonstration of emotion. In all other topics they may try to out-talk each other. Although both deal in facts and logical presentation of their views the Fifteen will tend to be more persistent, argumentative and insistent on having the final say, but not in a hostile or aggressive way. Their 6 influence will ensure a realistic but kindly conclusion of an issue. A fine sense of humour is a gift that is equally enjoyed. Their ability to see the subtle and funny side of things enhances their enjoyment of life and creates a bond of friendship. Both speak out with a measure of knowledge and authority that captures the attention of an audience. They stand out as good conversationalists, after dinner speakers and toastmasters by using their potential for improvisation, spontaneity and unrehearsed speech.
Being enterprising and energetic individuals their recreational time will be filled with a variety of activity. Mental alertness and physical fitness will ensure success in any form of sport. The social aspect of sport will also be successfully engaged in. The spirit of competition present in both may be displayed to an excessive degree. These individuals not only possess physical dexterity but are also finely mentally oriented. Music, art, literature and humanitarian work are areas of life that will consume a good part of their time and talents. The fact that they may take up different hobbies, and consequently not cover the same territory will serve to enrich their lives. An exchange of interest and support can be confidently expected. They are not types that reject something that they themselves do not follow. Culinary arts will be a mutual attraction. Home cooking, home entertainment and eating out will be a mutually enjoyable pastime. While travel will also be one of their regular diversions both will be strongly motivated to return home after a reasonable period away. The homing call is strong in both. A good balance can be established without much disagreement between home based hobbies and outside entertainment.
Contrary elements exist in both in regard to money and its usage. The 3 aspect of the Thirteen and the 5 aspect of the Fifteen, if left without control, will be responsible for the urge to spend money rather freely. These forces will, however, be monitored by the willpower of the 1 and the natural caution of their underlying 4 and 6 vibrations. Both partners may therefore be rewarded as responsible money managers. Expenditure will not be allowed to exceed income, nor will savings be neglected. Both are high income earners and their fondness for the good things of life and a degree of self-indulgence can be satisfied with little harm to their financial position. Each partner will, however, expect the freedom to spend a portion of their income without having to give account to the other.
Although their early years will be a testing time, both possess traits that could overcome initial differences. The friendship aspect will be strengthened when they resort to an interchange of ideas and make mutual decisions. Despite an active lifestyle their fundamental need for a stable and peaceful home will be the foundation on which they can build a loving and successful relationship.
13TH AND 16TH BIRTHDAYS
Obvious advantages contained within both of these birthdays are unrestricted outlets for the accumulation of knowledge, self-expression on the mental plane and the ability to function effectively on the physical plane. At the same time an outlet for spontaneous declaration of sentiment and demonstration of emotion is not present in either. Although the emotional nature of individuals born on these days is no less than that of the average person they usually appear as emotionally restricted. These shared features will contribute towards compatibility between Thirteen and Sixteen partners once superficial differences are acknowledged and accepted. Additional mental or physical vibrations from the birth month or other areas of influence in one or the other will strengthen the personality in these areas. On the other hand, the presence of a vibration from the emotional plane symbolised by the numbers 2, 5 and 8 will help only to some small extent towards emotional expression because the non-demonstrative mental and physical aspects of both birthdays will be too strong to allow free emergence of emotion. These birthdays contain odd numbers or active vibrations as well as even numbers or receptive vibrations. Odd numbers tend towards individuality, and although in both individuals their odd segments are stronger, their even areas will exercise a moderating influence on their behaviour preventing any excessive manifestation of active characteristics. A favourable balance within each personality is another factor that will be conducive towards compatibility.
The Thirteen partner is basically a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4). While an unqualified Four such as one born on the 4th day will generally operate on the physical plane, the Thirteen as a qualified Four will combine mental and physical aspects in equal proportion. The 1 vibration is a mentally creative as well as a pragmatic force. Its inventive capacity and originality combined with the powerful imaginative powers of the 3 vibration can be easily materialised by the manual dexterity of the basic 4. The Thirteen, therefore, emerges as a resourceful and multi-talented individual.
The Sixteen is a qualified Seven personality (1 + 6 = 7). The 1, 6 and 7 vibrations blend agreeably to create a self-assured and stable personality. Though each vibratory force has its own special features and functions they do not give rise to conflicting elements that could create division, uncertainty or conflict within the personality. Intellectual powers emerge as a powerful force through the initiative of the 1 vibration, the rationality and balance of the 6 and the studious and inquiring mentality of the 7. This personality is equally resourceful and diversified in the application of a great variety of natural potential.
Although both partners possess an unmistakable capacity for decision making and leadership they are not motivated by an urge to take sole charge of a partnership or any other situation in which they may find themselves. In partnership, in particular, they can accommodate themselves to a shared experience while at the same time maintain their individuality. Both are aware that a progressive blending will bring more into their partnership than each started with. A negative tendency such as competitive behaviour along with the desire to prove that one is better than the other is a feature alien to these personality types. Their egos do not call for self-promotion or the need to feel superior to others in order to boost their self-image. Consequently, their future augurs well for a relationship between healthy minds and healthy bodies, and the blossoming of the friendship aspect of marriage.
Both partners possess kindred tastes and aspirations for domestic felicity. The 4 aspect of the Thirteen and the 6 aspect of the Sixteen possess keen domestic attachments. Although both are well equipped for entry into public life as providers, and both may certainly do so, home and family will be seen as an equally important segment of their lives. Ambition for success in public life will not be extended to a degree that will harm a peaceful domestic atmosphere. They will willingly unite to effect a balance between the two. The Sixteen, in particular, will place considerable importance on an uncomplicated lifestyle. Both the 6 and 7 aspects of their temperament demand a uniform and simple way of life.
Despite time spent at work and at home, a happy social life will not be neglected by these partners. The 3 and 6 vibrations assisted by the energy of the 1 provide natural outlets for social interaction and social popularity. The 4 and 7 in each will exercise control over any excessive social involvement or uncontrolled behaviour. Both partners will combine as competent hosts and hostesses. Lively conversation plus quality food and drink served with elegance and good taste will be their specialty. However, it may be added that these qualities that lie in potential and the degree in which they are exhibited will depend on the cultural level reached by one or both partners. It is possible that the Sixteen will exercise more influence in arranging their social engagements as this partner will be more selective of the company they keep. The Thirteen may take up a more active role in a social scene while the Sixteen will prefer to remain as an onlooker or observer for the most part, and maintain a dignified distance from general frivolity. They are usually unflappable individuals not easily upset by remarks or observations made by others. Thirteens, on the other hand, do not hesitate to challenge a view or a situation that in their opinion contains an inconsistency or inaccuracy. They are also quick at repartee with a tendency to emphasise the humorous aspect of anything they observe. While Thirteens are not reluctant to initiate conversation and talk on personal matters, Sixteens would allow others to do so. This habit allows the focus to be taken away from themselves as most Sixteens do not relish the spotlight and are also reluctant to reveal their personal affairs. They are patient listeners who are able to provide sound advice when invited to do so. As natural psychologists they possess the potential to penetrate deep into the human psyche. Between themselves these partners are capable of engaging in intellectual abstractions as well as practical realities. Communication can be rich in knowledge and understanding. In the quietness of their home they are certain to indulge in periods of companionable silence as they are not types who feel obliged to constantly use words to express their sentiments. Their actions usually speak louder than their words. More often than not they externalise their feelings in appropriate body language.
These are busy people who do not engage in aimless or unprofitable pastimes in order to pass the time of the day. Both mental and physical outlets will be used for advantageous recreational activity. Their interests may be localised due to neither of the two feeling restlessness for frequent long distance travel. Although each may follow a personal choice in their hobbies, their talents are such that they will not be carried far into fields that are too diverse.
Both partners have been accustomed to handle their personal finances with a mixture of optimism and caution during the time they were single. This habit will not change when they enter into a partnership. Neither partner is attached to money for its own sake but the fear of insecurity prompts them to show due regard for its value. They are not gamblers nor are their spending habits likely to create dissension. Negative qualities such as indecision, uncertainty, changeability, distrust and manipulation will not interfere with decisions they need to make in regard to expenditure and investment. Without opposition from the Thirteen the Sixteen is likely to assume a larger share of responsibility in the management of their finances.
Intuition and logic act in unison in the Sixteen personality. Consequently this individual is able to form judgments from a depth of acquired knowledge as well as natural insight into things. Thirteens are guided by alert minds by personal experience and a pragmatic approach to life. While this couple may be deeply in love they would still maintain space between each other, and one would not infringe on the right of choice by the other. Egocentric thoughts and actions may be more prevalent in the Thirteen resulting in some degree of difficulty in establishing a close bond, but the Sixteen’s greater objectivity and self-sufficiency will help overcome this problem. Sentimental physical contact for expressing their love for each other will be reserved for the seclusion of their home and at appropriate times. Some unique features in this relationship will be their non-competitive attitudes, predictable patterns of behaviour and emotional tranquillity. Highly charged emotional scenes will not take place as both hold a firm grip upon their emotions. For the most part, both will try to solve their own problems and not constantly run to each other for help or guidance.
13TH AND 17TH BIRTHDAYS
The vibratory force symbolised by the number 1 present in both birthdays is a clear indication of positive attitudes towards life inherent in both Thirteen and Seventeen personalities. This number is known as the activator. Positivity enjoyed by these individuals creates a natural disposition that aims for success in whatever they choose to do, aided by initiative and incentive to do so. The combination of tenacity and self-confidence serves to extinguish thoughts of inadequacy in any undertaking either in public or private life. All initial fears (if any) are soon overcome once they take the plunge. These are partners who will endeavour to emphasise and blend their compatible features and not focus on differences that are to be expected. Dissimilar features will not be regarded as obstacles that separate them, but as reciprocal qualities that can add further strength to their union. Understandably, this will be done over a period of time.
The shared 1 vibration is not the only power that will induce them to do so. The underlying vibration forming the basic personality of the Thirteen is symbolised by the number 4 and in the Seventeen by the number 8 (1 + 7 = 8). The 4 and 8 are kindred forces known for practicality, steadfastness and other allied traits. The only difference is that in the Seventeen, the 8 is escalated to a higher and wider level of manifestation than the 4 is in the Thirteen. In other words, those influenced by the 8 choose a wider range of activity than those influenced by the 4. The significant factor here is the absence of conflict between these forces. Aspects of the Thirteen and Seventeen that may introduce certain dissimilarities arise from the 3 and 7 vibrations. The former favours extroverted activity and the latter a positive form of introversion or reserve. Such dissimilar features are, however, incidental and should not be responsible for conflict in a relationship.
The happy prospect of compatibility can be expected in this relationship. The personality structures of the Thirteen and Seventeen, taken as a whole, are not so differently cast as to be regarded as incompatible in any significant way. The presence of active vibrations in the outer personality of each and a receptive vibration as the underlying force creates a good balance in each individual. Active and receptive forces complement each other because the active force does not combat the receptive, but rather, completes it. Levels of self-esteem within these partners are relatively the same. One will not feel inferior or superior to the other or adopt exploitative or manipulative ways in order to get their own way and boost their egos. The tendency will be to drift towards each other than away from each other. As essentially non-competitive individuals they can combine to bring out the best in each other by encouraging latent and tentative possibilities to become active powers. Another factor that will contribute to the success of this relationship is the disposition of both partners to minimise demonstration of emotion. One will not embarrass or disturb the other by outward or too obvious displays of their feelings, particularly in the presence of others. Such actions will be reserved for the privacy of their home and after observation of each other’s mood. As emotional accessibility of either cannot be taken for granted they will instinctively respect each other’s personal space. In general, impulsive bouts of behaviour will be out of character.
Thirteens and Seventeens are by nature individualistic and authoritative and cannot under any circumstances submit to the will of another. Their speech, posture and general demeanour provide ample evidence that they are their own persons and are not to be dominated or manipulated. As they are sufficiently equipped to take rank with each other in almost all aspects of life, mutual respect rather than rivalry and conflict can be the foundation on which a partnership of equals will eventuate. Unwelcome personality modification in the course of their relationship will not be expected or needed. Among many obvious advantages that are innate rather than acquired are loyalty, dependability and a rational approach to life. Both can also maintain balance between regularity and flexibility. While both are essentially career oriented persons they are also keen on a stable and comfortable domestic life. With an equitable distribution of responsibility both will find time to attend to all the essential needs of house and garden. The Seventeen may play a more enthusiastic role in the garden as the 7 vibration invariably creates the nature lover. The Thirteen is not without an appreciation of beauty in a garden full of flowers but their underlying 4 influence would prefer a vegetable garden. The Four personality is more a profit-making farmer than an artist content with beauty only.
Good neighbourliness and sociability will be kept at moderate levels by this couple. Although the 3 in the Thirteen contributes extroverted and sociable traits the basic 4 will exercise control over excessive involvement in unproductive social activity. This aspect of the Thirteen is easily disturbed by any form of activity that could upset a well regulated lifestyle. Similarly, the 7 aspect of the Seventeen which demands privacy, periods of silence and an intolerance of superficial social intercourse will exercise control over their choice of friends, acquaintances and social engagements. The 1 and 8 aspects combined will prevent the Seventeen from falling too far into a reclusive lifestyle. By and large, Thirteens and Seventeens will not disagree in their choice of company and social events. As people and situations are not perceived as threatening, they can hold their own in any company. They are able to see things realistically.
A larger vocabulary and greater fluency of speech is a special endowment enjoyed by the Thirteen by virtue of the 3 vibration. It also provides a fine sense of humour and the ability, and in fact the need to hold the centre of attention in any company. Competent speech and authoritative body language is natural to all Thirteens due to the direct result of the blending of the articulate 3, the independent 1 and the disciplined 4 aspects of their personality. Accuracy of speech, or for that matter, accuracy in most actions by the Thirteen is the result of this same combination. Many Thirteens may be inclined to confine their conversation to their own affairs paying indifferent attention to the affairs of others. Seventeens, on the other hand, usually pay sympathetic attention to the problems of others provided they are genuine and not repetitive. They could be quite intolerant of superficial talk or complaints of people who have a touch of hypochondria. Fluency of speech is seldom observed in a Seventeen. Although they are knowledgeable people they experience difficulty enunciating and delivering their knowledge, especially when called upon to make an impromptu delivery. They would insist on a prepared speech which can then be of exceptional quality. They project authority and hold the attention of their audience without effort. Although Thirteens and Seventeens hold firm opinions they are not necessarily argumentative people. Between themselves they would rather agree to disagree than carry on in a contentious manner.
Although these partners are firmly individualistic by nature they will not be attracted to recreational activities that will separate them to any harmful extent. A life of sensation and a life of thoughtfulness can be followed with equal pleasure. Both can engage in most forms of outdoor activity. As mentioned earlier, the Seventeen will generally find time for gardening or some other rural occupation and receive the support of the Thirteen. The Thirteen is likely to be handy with tools. Home maintenance and improvement will be their specialty. These partners may, however, occupy different worlds in spiritual matters. Seventeens through the power of the 7 vibration are natural students of esoteric matters and consequently, include spiritual and philosophical principles into their thoughts, actions and research. Most Thirteens, unless born in the 7th or 9th months may be too busily engaged in mental or physical activity to worry about matters beyond what they enjoy through the five senses. Most forms of competitive and non-competitive sport will attract these partners, but neither will be fiercely competitive. The chances are that they will be attracted more towards non-competitive recreations such as bushwalking, birdwatching, fishing, boating, mountaineering and similar outdoor activities.
Money problems caused by irresponsible management, selfishness or inadequate earning capacity should not arise in this partnership. Both possess a wide range of potential for successful careers in business or public service. They are generous and at the same time cautious spenders. Spending sprees prompted by emotion will not be indulged in by either of the two. Although both are capable of handling their financial affairs it is likely that the Seventeen will take charge of this department without contest from the Thirteen. Both partners are able to accept the discipline of working to a timetable in their daily affairs, and in doing so establish a good measure of domestic harmony. There is much more accord in this relationship than the possibilities of discord. Similarity also guarantees better marital prospects. With the combined wisdom of head and heart, not to mention hands, this should turn out to be a partnership between willing workers, friends and lovers. Differences that arise from time to time that appear contradictory, as mentioned earlier, can be turned into complementary qualities that strengthen the partnership rather than become a source of discord. As both partners maintain individual comfort zones they will be careful not to encroach upon each other’s privacy. The action of touching always contains more potent meaning than articulated words. These individuals are not customary touchers but on the rare occasions they do so, touch will be charged with meaning and feeling.
13TH AND 18TH BIRTHDAYS
A Thirteen/Eighteen combination will turn out as one between a pair of competent and resourceful individuals. They are generally insistent on their expectations and strong-willed in the pursuit of their ambitions. Assumption of authority which comes naturally to both arises from a foundation of self-assurance, consummate leadership and organisational abilities. The potential for successful careers in business or public service is far-reaching in both personalities. Obstacles and opposition that can be expected in life can be faced and overcome without erosion of self-confidence. Independent action rather than cooperative action is more in keeping with their temperaments. Neither can be influenced, manipulated or held down for long in subordinate positions once maturity has been attained. Nor do they feel inclined to or feel the need for consultation in any course of action. These self-reliant qualities which can be so beneficial in authoritative positions in public life may not be as helpful in an intimate relationship. They may certainly be responsible for a clash of temperaments soon after the honeymoon is over and the serious business of a combined alliance is faced. Before any serious divisions are created a conscious effort has to be made by both to recognise each other’s strengths and accept the reality that their partnership can only be one of equals. This can be done as it is in the nature of positive individuals to automatically recognise and acknowledge positive qualities in others along with those that may not be quite as positive. Thirteens and Eighteens are not so immersed in egoistic or egocentric habits to be unaware of the advantages to be gained from a coordinated effort.
Both Thirteens and Eighteens are work-oriented people driven by mental alertness and physical energy. Their positive attributes of enterprise and decisiveness helps them find something in almost any situation which can be shaped and used for their benefit. They are unlikely to undertake work that will keep them away from people or from challenges and competition. A relatively restricted domestic lifestyle is not in accord with their dispositions and talents. Domestic responsibilities will, however, be placed as a close second to their careers in business or public service. As responsibility and family pride are eminent qualities in both agreements can be reached for an equal share of responsibility.
Whatever estimate they put upon themselves will determine the degree of success in any undertaking. They are unlikely to overestimate or underestimate their abilities. The 1 and 3 aspects of the Thirteen and the 1 and 8 aspects of the Eighteen ensure more than adequate self-possession. At the same time the 4 in the Thirteen and the 9 in the Eighteen (1 + 8 = 9) ensure that self-esteem is not taken to excess and converted into conceit and egotism. These individuals are always on the lookout for improved ways of doing things. Distinctions in their capacity for performance are merely relative. It is not so much the presence or absence of a particular talent in one or the other so much as in the degree or extent to which a particular quality is active. Frustration they encounter in subordinate positions and impatience in shared positions are difficulties encountered by both. Their instinctive belief that they could get things done better by working alone or in an authoritative or administrative position needs to be moderated in an intimate relationship.
The Thirteen, as a qualified Four personality (1 +3 = 4), operates with equal effectiveness on the mental and physical planes with a constructive mind and manual dexterity. The combined effort of undemonstrative mental and physical characteristics and the absence of a vibration from the emotional plane are responsible for limited emotional expression. Emotions are channelled into physical activity rather than given spontaneous release in speech and body language. Eighteens experience somewhat similar conditions despite the fact that the 8 vibration belongs to the emotional plane. The 8 causes the personality to consciously control emotional expression in the ordinary course of living. Their bottled-up emotions may be released in physical activity and in an occasional burst of temper. The 9 aspect, which also contains a great deal of emotion despite its position on the mental plane, aids in the bottling up process and spasmodic emotional outbursts. By and large, the Eighteen is a more emotionally propelled personality than the Thirteen. The fact that Eighteens possess a deeper insight into human nature often intensifies their reactions. Thirteens do not experience the highs and lows most Eighteens are subject to. The battle between emotion and reason is not half as difficult in a Thirteen as it is in an Eighteen.
Both partners feel comfortable in an ordered society They are not likely to enter a social scene or engage in social activity that has not been chosen by one or the other. As extroverted types both derive equal enjoyment and provide equal pleasure from interaction with friends and acquaintances of their choice. At the same time both possess built-in safeguards that prevent an excess of frivolous social activity. Both need people to make them sparkle, and sparkle they can in almost any social scene when they choose to do so. They can be playful and cheerful without being childish or juvenile. A subtle sense of humour along with the gift of speech are advantages enjoyed by both. They accept popular applause and social recognition with poise and self-possession. As both can hold the centre of attention in almost any gathering there is a certain amount of friendly rivalry for holding the spotlight that is bound to arise. Both parties are cheerful and instructive conversationalists. The Thirteen, in particular, by virtue of the articulate 3 vibration in the forefront of the personality should have no need to struggle for words or suffer from a lack of imaginative ideas. The Eighteen’s speech is greatly enriched by the underlying 9 vibration and the natural authority of the 1 and 8. In ordinary circumstances Eighteens may not be as talkative as a Thirteen, but may emerge without effort as commanding speakers, orators, demonstrators and instructors in matters in which they have become a recognised authority. They usually reach considerable heights of eloquence when stimulated by interested and eager listeners. They are also strongly moved by other inspirational speakers, serious literature and inspirational music. In ordinary conversation they are more objective in their choice of topics whereas a Thirteen may be inclined to concentrate on personal matters. Eighteens do not indulge in unnecessary chatter, and in circumstances that do not suit them they would be quite content to say nothing when they feel there is nothing to say. They would rather spend time with a book, listening to music, or in some other practical task than continue unprofitable conversation. Both are known for their sharp wit and their no-nonsense attitude towards inaccurate or erroneous speech. The Thirteen, in particular, will not hesitate to correct inaccuracies or inconsistencies in speech. As all suggestions and decisions will be expressed in clear and unequivocal language there should not be many misunderstandings between these partners.
The Eighteen is not tied to self-interest as much as a Thirteen, and is therefore open to a wider range of public activity. This will be evident in the ways these partners spend their non-working hours and in their choice of recreational activity. Social service on an extended scale can by undertaken by most Eighteens. As the combative spirit is active in both competitive sport will be one of their principal diversions. They are not likely to retire when active participation is no longer possible, but may automatically slide into non-playing positions as umpires, coaches and administrators. Both possess the ability to activate and inspire their followers. Eighteens are likely to pay more attention to music and literature while the manual skills of the Thirteen will be diverted into a well equipped workshop. These are general directions they may follow. The Eighteen is not without manual skills nor is the Thirteen in any way indifferent to mental pleasures. Many Thirteens are in fact creative artists and natural musicians. The truth is that these partners can effectively interchange and promote their talents. Both will need to take care that they do not expose themselves to the danger of over-involvement in outside interests at the expense of domestic togetherness. They could easily be carried away by a mutual interest in some form of artistic hobby.
Their attitudes towards money and its employment are not so different as to cause division within their ranks. As their actions are governed by pragmatic minds as well as enterprise and imagination both are capable of handling money competently. Consequently, one may not feel the need to hand over sole control of their finances to the other. Mutual agreement in expenditure and investment is their only alternative. The Eighteen may reveal more generosity in their spending habits and less attachment to money for its own sake. The Thirteen may exercise more influence in saving for future needs.
There are very few people in whom Thirteens and Eighteens are able to confide or indulge in a free exchange of sentiments. This a natural feature in most self-sufficient people. There is still a need in all humans to unburden themselves at times of personal crisis. These partners should feel free to do so as both are responsible and trustworthy individuals who will not betray a confidence or fail to understand an intimate problem. They are most unlikely to be critical of each other. While Eighteens may see things in a wider perspective and consequently show a degree of indecision, Thirteens are able to get at the essentials of an issue instantly without worrying about its wider ramifications which may not always be relevant. Eighteens are more sensitively organised but their sensitivity is often disguised by a cloak of silence or distance. Their tendency to bottle up their feelings and suffer in silence will be unnecessary with a practical and realistic Thirteen partner who will be able to sort out facts from emotion-controlled views. While a degree of rivalry will be inevitable in this relationship it should not interfere with other outstanding qualities of loyalty, romance, family pride, and a firm commitment to anything they undertake, particularly one as meaningful and significant as an intimate relationship.
13TH AND 19TH BIRTHDAYS
For the most part an odd numbered birthday creates a personality governed by mind and an even numbered birthday, a personality governed by feeling. Thirteen and Nineteen personalities are therefore mentally oriented people in whom sentiment and emotional expression are held in check. The principle of gravitation that draws like to like will apply to this combination rather than the attraction of opposites. Characteristics these individuals possess that are complementary are far more than any that may create disagreement at a later date.
The 1 vibration in both birthdays provides a positive attitude towards life in general. This number or vibration is known as the activator. Consequently, attributes such as initiative, independence, self-confidence, self-esteem, authority and leadership are operative in both individuals. They do not waste time and energy with negative tendencies such as indecision, misinterpretation of the motives of others and easily hurt feelings. A predisposition to see the negative side of persons, things and situations, while remaining blind to the positive, is foreign to their nature. Nor is there a need to protect sensitive egos with uncharacteristic behaviour. As neither personality will be subject to the neutralising or debilitating influences of doubts and fears they will sooner rather than later recognise their mutual talents and agree on a partnership of equal independence, mutual dependence and reciprocal obligation. This will be an optimum balance they can aim for in order to satisfy their need to maintain their individuality and at the same time fulfil the need to enter into an intimate relationship.
The Thirteen is basically a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4). However, these individuals will not be seen as clear-cut Fours such as those born on the 4th day of the month. Due to the direct influence of the 1 and 3 vibrations in the forefront of the personality qualities of the 4 vibration are not diminished, and are merged into a trio or trinity of vibratory forces. The 1, 3 and 4 forces harmonise to a degree that creates an extroverted and versatile individual who is too many-sided to be classed as a particular type or stereotyped in any way. They operate with self-assurance on the mental and physical planes. Self-expression and accessibility through the emotional plane may be limited. A mental and/or down-to-earth approach is the best way to reach a Thirteen as this is how life is viewed by this individual. Their overall make-up is too practical and rational to allow sentiment to override reason. However, this personality, by virtue of the youthful 3 vibration, is not without romance, imagination, laughter and repartee. Qualities associated with a consummate leader, director and inventor are found in the 1 and 3 aspects of the personality while the talents required for practical application of their ideas are found in the 4. The Thirteen is a leader capable of performing any task that a subordinate may be requested to do.
The Nineteen is a One personality (1 + 9 = 10 = 1) reinforced by the attributes of the 1 vibration. The composite Nineteen is activated by vibrations from both ends of the single number spectrum. The number 1 represents the beginning of a life’s cycle and the 9, its completion. At the beginning one is generally alone, and qualities such as self-reliance, strength of ego, decision, initiative, creativity, direction, tenacity and willpower are essential for survival and progress. With experience of life at the stages 1 to 8 behind them, the Nine personalities have acquired as natural features an impersonal and universal outlook on life. Self-centredness and egoistic tendencies natural at the 1 stage have been sublimated and spread out into an awareness of the unity of all creation, particularly in human association. Although the Nineteen is not a Nine personality the influence of the 9 vibration is strong enough to introduce the best 9 characteristics into the personality. Negative 9 features such as indecision and impracticality cannot appear due to the powerful 1 influence. At the same time many rough edges of the pure 1 vibration are polished by elevated qualities of the 9. The Nineteen, however, is not entirely free from a personal battle between the promptings of self-love and the promptings of love of neighbour in the broadest possible sense. The degree in which one or the other aspect has a greater hold on the personality will depend on a particular individual’s family and cultural background.
A full-time career as a homemaker will not be attractive to either a Thirteen or Nineteen. If this was expected by one or the other, such expectation will need to be revised. Homemaking will need to be a joint undertaking. Careers in public life will be needed by both for a full expression of their potential. Family togetherness and involvement in work outside the home will have to be balanced. In order to avoid stepping or each other’s toes a clear definition of territory within the home will be helpful. It is possible that the Thirteen may undertake a larger share of manual tasks within and around the home. While the Nineteen is not devoid of manual skills this partner will, whenever the need arises, assume a role as advisor, counsellor and confidant. Family members may find the Nineteen more accessible when personal matters need to be discussed.
These are partners who can enter society and act as participants as well as spectators. They cannot be influenced by others to act one way or the other. As individuals who are in command of themselves they will not remain in company not of their liking or choice. They should have no difficulty accepting each other’s selection of friends and acquaintances. They will readily close ranks in the event of a disagreement with a third party. Loyalty to each other will always remain one of their strongest bonds. Social popularity is easily achieved as both are spontaneous entertainers. Although not always dependent on company they derive as much pleasure from social interaction as they give to others. As the desire for self-expression is one of their strong needs there will inevitably be some degree of rivalry for occupying centre stage in a social gathering. Rather than steal attention from each other they should take turns to voice their opinions. The Thirteen will be known for clarity and accuracy of speech. An ambivalent use of words and phrases, or inappropriate use of popular clichés will be uncharacteristic. Thirteens will not hesitate to correct inaccuracies or ambiguous speech, or an inaccurate description of a person or incident. In doing so, they do not mean to be pedantic or offensive. The desire for correctness emerges unconsciously. The potential to develop into powerful and influential speakers is ever present in all Nineteens. They may not be as precise as a Thirteen, but their choice of words and phrases is more profound. While the Thirteen’s ideas emerge to a large extent from a utilitarian mentality, those of the Nineteen often emerge from an idealistic interpretation of life’s events. Their awareness is not confined to the physical and mental realms but is also carried from time to time into the metaphysical through the influence of the intuitive 9 vibration. Intuition is a quality present in all personality types but can be more sensitive in those influenced by the 2, 7, and 9 vibrations, as well as the master vibrations 11 and 22. Conversation between these partners will always remain interesting and mutually instructive. Although there are bound to be differences of opinion at times, they are not likely to descend into fruitless argument. There will be very little time in their busy lives for elaboration on trivial matters. They will be more inclined to agree to disagree than worry about gaining a point of view.
It would be futile to specify what these energetic individuals would do during their spare time or what hobbies would attract their interest because they could happily involve themselves in so many things. Some outside interests are needed by both in order to keep them happy. Such interests may not be the same but will not be of a nature that would cause too much separation. Allowing each other individual interests will enrich their relationship rather than damage it. While they may not spend all their time as a twosome they can still maintain a proportionate amount of togetherness and separateness. Occasional travel and holiday making, which will usually be organised by the Nineteen, will help maintain this balance. The versatile and purposeful Thirteen can excel in any form of sport, play any type of musical instrument and display a natural aptitude for mechanical and electrical things. They are also likely to be attracted to carpentry, lapidary and other physically creative hobbies. Almost all Thirteens can convert their hobbies into a secondary source of income. Trades people will very seldom be called into a Thirteen household. Although Nineteens are not without certain manual skills they are likely to spend more time in music, literature, self-study and social service. They may be involved in group activity such as self-development circles, usually as organisers and leaders. Thirteens may, not readily participate in esoteric studies and the combination of practical and intellectual aspects of life will be more attractive and will take up almost all their time. A certain amount of scepticism regarding non-physical aspects of life is a natural part of their temperament.
Management of their financial affairs will also remain as a joint undertaking. Both possess good management skills. Expenditure and saving will be balanced. The 3 aspect of the Thirteen and the 9 in the Nineteen permit generous spending. The Thirteen is likely to spend more on themselves while the Nineteen will extend their spending to others. Emotion-backed demands and urges are controlled in both by an inbuilt feature that sets a guard on excess or the desire to gamble with their resources. The Thirteen may possess a slightly better evaluation of goods and services due to their generally realistic view of things as opposed to the touch of idealism in the Nineteen.
There is a fundamental similarity between these partners which will not be harmed by superficial differences. Such differences will turn out as assets rather than liabilities. Whatever direction each may take, some factors will remain constant such as love, loyalty, responsibility, their focus on positive action and their refusal to allow outside influences to interfere with their commitment to each other. While the same ideas may be entertained by both in most things, it is in their interpretation and implementation that they may differ slightly. If their life together can be compared to a game of snakes and ladders there will be more ladders than snakes.
13TH AND 20TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on 2nd and 13th birthdays. The Zero in the 20th day does not add any new features or subtract any features of the 2 vibration. In some instances it may emphasise certain existing features.
13TH AND 21ST BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 12th and 13th birthdays. Qualified Three personalities are formed by the 12th and 21st days (1 + 2 = 3, and 2 + 1 = 3). The change in position of the 1 vibration makes little or no difference to the integral personalities of persons born on these days. Relationships between Thirteen and Twenty-One partners will be almost identical to those between Twelve and Thirteen partners.
13TH AND 22ND BIRTHDAYS
Birthday combinations in which the 22nd day is present in one partner, more variables and uncertainties occur than in most combinations. The assurance that all relationships between Thirteen and Twenty-Two personalities will turn out successfully cannot be confidently given. The Thirteen personality emerges as a fairly discernible type. Vibrations from other areas of influence may enhance certain qualities or modify others, but do not appreciably alter the basic personality type. Whoever enters into a relationship with a Thirteen gains a partner who can be understood without difficulty. There are no surprises, pleasant or unpleasant, or hidden features that may emerge unexpectedly at a later date. ‘What you see is what you get’ may be said with relative certainty of the Thirteen. All Thirteens are positive individuals who approach life with self-confidence, strong egos and a multiplicity of natural talent. They are mentally and physically oriented individuals with a rational and practical approach to life. Although emotion, sentiment and sensibility are by no means absent these are qualities that do not influence them when decisions need to be made. Nor are they emotionally reactive to the speech and actions of others. It is the 1 vibration in this personality that ensures positive thinking and constructive action among several other self-sufficient attributes. The 3 aspect complements the 1, providing a sharp and agile mind that absorbs knowledge swiftly. The fundamental 4 aspect (1 + 3 = 4) provides manual dexterity and down-to-earth attitudes.
The master vibration symbolised by the number 22 is the most comprehensive of all vibratory forces operating at the present time. It contains in essence the attributes of all other vibratory forces with the potential for equal self-expression on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms. A harmonious blending of all these areas exists in a positive Twenty-Two. They may be limited in any particular area only to the extent that some Twenty-Twos convince themselves that they have boundaries. All positive Twenty-Twos possess an international outlook free from prejudice of any sort. The concept of the brotherhood of man is not just an ideal but a very realistic condition. They are practical visionaries in whom mind, heart and manual dexterity blend proportionately. However, not all Twenty-Twos achieve such eminence. There are some who are altogether the opposite in their mentality. They could display a selfish, materialistic and grasping nature, often quite aggressively. The Twenty-Two functions positively when the 1 vibration is present in the birth month. It is the presence or absence of this vibration in the birthday or birth month that is responsible for a positive approach to life, or one that may contain a number of insecurities. Twenty-Twos who are born in the months other than the 1st, 10th, 11th, and 12th usually inherit negative features of the master vibration. These could be excessive in those born in the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 9th months. The vibrations of these months intensify the emotionalism and sensitivity of the 22. As emotionally controlled people, Twenty-Twos of a negative trend are often problem partners. Excess of sensitivity which leads to easily hurt feelings, misinterpretation of the motives of others and a general waywardness are some of their problems. Those born in the 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th months can exercise more control over their feelings and introduce more stability into their lives. Unlike the emotionally controlled Twenty-Twos, they do not take a defensive stance in their interaction with others. By and large, all Twenty-Twos without the 1 vibration in their birth months need to work on increasing self-confidence and self-esteem. The position in a Thirteen/Twenty-Two relationship is variable. While the Twenty-Two can be assured of a stable personality as a partner the Thirteen cannot be as certain. On the other hand Thirteens who meet positive Twenty-Twos acquire partners who may be superior to them in many respects. A Thirteen who meets a negative Twenty-Two, especially one who is emotionally controlled, can expect a great deal of frustration.
A variety of conditions arise when the time comes for distribution of authority and responsibility, and for decision making. Thirteens are authoritative by nature, and as such, will not play second fiddle. Whether in the right or wrong they would insist on their decisions being accepted. More often than not their decisions are the right ones. They are generous givers of their time, advice and service, but their generosity does not extend into situations that call for sharing, compromise and cooperation. A positive or near positive Twenty-Two will not willingly submit to the leadership of a Thirteen. Their range of thought and action is much broader and less personal than that of a Thirteen. They are too superior in their overall mentality to adjust to an inferior status of a follower, or fit into a pattern of life determined by a partner whose mentality is not as extensive as their own. They do not possess the same urge to assume a direct role of leadership. They would, however, insist on freedom to act according to their own inclinations, usually leading by example and organisational and administrative talents. Negative Twenty-Twos who lack the confidence to make decisions for themselves and others will take an opposite course and depend on their Thirteen partners for all their decisions. Resentful of the Thirteen’s strength and frustrated by their own weakness, they often turn into demanding and burdensome partners. All Twenty-Twos, whether negative or positive, possess good manual skills. This is one area of activity in which they complement their Thirteen partners. Any task relating to home maintenance or home improvement can be undertaken and completed by one or the other or by joint participation. Both partners are capable of following a career in public life and at the same time running a comfortable home. Thirteens need to be involved in a career that offers free expression of their mental and physical creativity, their leadership qualities and a sense of permanence. They expect to go about their business with their minds set fast on the job at hand and not be disturbed or distracted. Their strong egos take pride in their achievements. Positive Twenty-Twos place no limitation on their field of action. They function best on a national or international scale as practical idealists. When this is not possible due to circumstances beyond their control they enjoy activities that benefit not only themselves but also their local community. Their ambitions are determined by impersonal, idealistic and humanistic views as opposed to the Thirteen’s largely personal and down-to-earth needs. Strong as a Thirteen may be, they will not be able to control the movements of a positive Twenty-Two. Negative Twenty-Twos will be easier to handle due to their dependability and lack of broad horizons. They are susceptible to different sorts of exterior forces playing upon them and this affects their ability to make firm decisions. Thirteens and positive Twenty-Twos can shut themselves in or make themselves positive to extraneous forces and go ahead with the job at hand.
Thirteens and positive Twenty-Twos derive almost equal pleasure from social activity. Negative Twenty-Twos are too sensitive and insecure to cope with the variety of personality types one meets in society. Most negative Twenty-Twos too readily misconstrue and misjudge the speech and actions of others and cause unwarranted problems for themselves, their loved ones and others. In their social attitudes Thirteens display a mixture of conventional and modernistic values, with conventional habits having a slightly stronger hold. Most Twenty-Twos are unconventional and in some instances anti-establishment. Some may revolt against conventions which have prevailed for too long and created privileges for sections of society that have never earned them. They insist on acting according to their own conceptions of conformity. They do not wear a protective shield nor do they fear public opinion. Thirteens may not be too different in this respect. However, their choice of company will not be as extensive or as cosmopolitan as that of the positive Twenty-Two, and consequently, they too would not be required to take up any protective measures. Negative Twenty-Twos will always remain a problem due to their suspicious natures and their inability to open out and enjoy spontaneous interaction with others.
Accuracy in all things is expressed and expected by the Thirteen. Ideas generated by a powerful imagination are assessed and checked before being put into verbal expression and subsequent form. Articulate speech and a fine voice are provided by the 3 aspect of their personality structure and the ability to transfer thought and speech into action along functional lines is given by the 1 and 4 aspects. The Thirteen is neither carried away by emotion or by fantasy. Their conversation will always remain entertaining and instructive. However, the personal element will always remain as they are seldom able to divorce themselves from self-interest and subjectivity. They make no secret of their likes and dislikes. They are seldom open to or sympathetic towards the views of others. Twenty-Twos are not as talkative. Their written word is expressed with greater power and effectiveness than their spoken word. However, when positive Twenty-Twos need to deliver a message of a profound nature the position is reversed. They speak with authority and knowledge that captivates an audience. In ordinary day-to-day conversation they are sympathetic listeners who are able to make objective judgments. Their egos do not hinder impartiality. The feelings of others are taken into consideration before they express their opinions. The abstract as well as concrete nature of their thoughts is easily observed in their speech. The topics of conversation chosen by them reveal a deep penetration into the nature of things. Negative Twenty-Twos, as usual, take an opposite course. Their oversensitive and temperamental egos prevent them from making objective judgments. Their opinions reveal their general negative outlook on life.
Recreational activities and avocations chosen according to their particular temperaments will not always be of a corresponding nature that would see them acting as a twosome. There is, however, one broad aspect of life in which a good deal of mental satisfaction and togetherness can be enjoyed. Different as they are in other respects both are creative artists. A natural appreciation of beauty, colour, form and design gain expression in painting, sculpture and music, especially in the composition of music and song. This is also one area in which positive and negative Twenty-Twos are not divided. A part of life in which positive Twenty-Twos and negative Twenty-Twos may be sharply divided is in their spiritual aspirations. Positive or near positive Twenty-Twos are not merely idealists or moralists but deeply spiritual, more often than not in a non-conformist way. They are usually free thinkers and practitioners of universal spiritual values. Negative Twenty-Twos are often wholly materialistic and power-hungry people. Many acquire material wealth but gain only a false sense of power. Apart from following good ethical principles Thirteens do not usually demonstrate an attraction towards matters beyond the range of the five senses. They are usually too busy with their mental, physical and social interests to spend time on spiritual enlightenment. An orthodox religious practice suits them better. Twenty-Twos are not uncomfortable or emotionally disturbed when they find themselves involved in controversial or inconclusive issues, but Thirteens are not satisfied unless matters relating to their lifestyle are clear-cut and foreseeable.
Management of financial affairs on a day-to-day basis as well as savings and investment is still another department of life that will vary considerably between Thirteens and different types of Twenty-Twos. Thirteens are good money managers with a balanced approach towards income and expenditure. Positive Twenty-Twos do not place much importance on money for its own sake or on the value of material possessions. A lifestyle of study, self-expression and service detached from too much material responsibility is more important to them. These Twenty-Twos will willingly pass on the responsibility for money management to their Thirteen partners. The Thirteen will limit their tendency to part with money too generously. Negative Twenty-Twos can be exceptionally cautious or even miserly with money and their material goods. It could be said of some that they do not possess their wealth but their wealth possesses them.
The constitution of the Thirteen does not contain elements that give rise to inner conflict and unexpected conduct. This cannot be said of the Twenty-Two. Even positive Twenty-Twos are often troubled by the upward pull of their higher spiritual nature and the downward draw of their physical nature. Negative Twenty-Twos are seldom free from inner conflict due to the variety of self-generated problems arising from an over-sensitive nature. Unreasonable demands are made on their partners and very little is given in return. Very careful handling of their sensibilities is needed if one is to get anything out of them. Positive Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, are usually in command of themselves, especially in times of want and in times of stress. They can make the best of a bad situation and deny themselves luxuries until better times arrive.
Whatever circumstances or reasons responsible for bringing together a Thirteen and a positive Twenty-Two, a lasting and successful relationship can be expected. This cannot be confidently anticipated in a union between a Thirteen and a negative Twenty-Two. The responsibility for failure is not likely to be with the Thirteen but invariably with that of the negative Twenty-Two.
13TH AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS
Qualified Four and qualified Five personalities are formed by these birthdays (1 + 3 = 4) and (2 + 3 = 5). Characteristics of the 4 vibration are not easily distinguishable in the qualified Four, henceforth referred to as the Thirteen. This is due to the influence of the 3 vibration with features that are in most ways different to that of the 4. However, the presence of 3 and 4 attributes in this individual creates a good balance between attributes of the mental realm and those of the physical realm. In addition, the 1 vibration, which in itself contains an abundance of mental and physical attributes, adds considerable strength to the integral personality. Consequently, Thirteens emerge as self-sufficient and multi-talented individuals. Independence, creativity and leadership are among their principal characteristics. A passive role or one as a dependant, follower, assistant or junior will not be held for long in any situation. The Thirteen will sooner rather than later emerge as an innovator and leader. Not consenting to play second fiddle in an intimate relationship, they automatically assume an authoritative role. This may succeed, and indeed be welcomed by certain partners, but not by one born on the 23rd day.
Freedom, curiosity, adventure and enterprise are the hallmarks of the Five personality whether qualified or not. A Twenty-Three partner will not accommodate or agree to decisions or rules made arbitrarily by another. Unlike the Thirteen, a Twenty-Three is easily distinguishable as a Five due to the fact that the 3 and 5 vibrations have many features in common. Twenty-Threes need to lead their lives according to their own desires and values, and do not seek the responsibilities of leadership. Nor would they remain in a situation where their actions and movements are restricted, or in one that demands an accounting of their actions and movements. Although they may put up with such conditions to some degree in public life they will not do so in marriage or an intimate relationship. They are exceptionally versatile, adaptable and multi-talented people who suffer from a degree of restlessness that may not always be conducive to their own welfare or the welfare of a partnership. This will become evident very early in a partnership with one who expects an orderly and punctual daily lifestyle.
There is a significant difference between the Thirteen and Twenty-Three created by the presence of the 1 vibration in one and its absence in the other. This vibration provides a sense of direction, concentration and the ability and the need to complete anything that is undertaken before turning to something new. In other words when this vibration is present in the birthday or birth month nothing is left incomplete, undone, unnecessarily delayed or postponed. While these are natural attributes of the Thirteen, the Twenty-Three falls short of these advantages despite the fact that they are equally talented in other respects. Impatience, distraction and a desire for frequent change are stronger than their desire for permanence. They are not people who deal with one thing at a time, rather engaging in several projects at the same time. Specialisation is a path the Twenty-Three seldom undertakes successfully. This will be most evident in a Twenty-Three born in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 9th months. Repetition of a birthday vibration in the birth month strengthens that aspect of the personality in the Thirteen but weakens that aspect in the Twenty-Three due to the absence of the piloting qualities of the 1 force. Twenty-Threes with the 1 vibration in their birth months are usually more able to harness their talents and use them constructively than are those without the 1. Those born in the 4th, 7th, 6th and 8th months are also able to exercise a degree of consistency. By and large, there are three different types of Twenty-Threes and it cannot be said that any one type will be naturally compatible with a Thirteen. Much work has to be done to achieve a measure of success in this partnership. These personalities differ not so much in the presence or absence of a particular talent or personality trait but in the manner in which these are expressed. One may do so with calculation and restraint and the other with impulse and haste.
A Twenty-Three will resent the Thirteen’s attempts to take control while the Thirteen, in turn, will resent the Twenty-Three’s elusive nature and their habit of sidestepping issues. The Thirteen says “I’ll tell you what you should do”. The Twenty-Three says “I’ll tell you what I will do.” Thirteens in general try to impose their ideas on others while Twenty-Threes sell their ideas. They are good manipulators and successful salespersons. The Thirteen will expect an efficient running of their domestic affairs by establishing timetables, routines and punctuality. While these are natural characteristics of the Thirteen they are dispensable in the Twenty-Three’s view. Although Thirteens are career oriented individuals they are also, to a degree, home oriented. Twenty-Threes do not match their level of home attachment. Activities outside home are much more attractive to them than the joys of a quiet domestic atmosphere. Cooking, housekeeping, and gardening are duties they would undertake quite efficiently but only when the mood hits them. It will not be easy to share responsibility with a Twenty-Three with the expectation that this partner will do his or her share of work or time. Cares and responsibilities given careful attention by a Thirteen will be taken in their stride by the Twenty-Three who is likely to leave many loose ends. Fairness in terms of an equal distribution of work is not a serious consideration.
Both partners gain prominence in social life. They possess the knack of getting the best out of a social scene. They do not wait to be entertained or allow themselves to be relegated to the sidelines, but as natural entertainers they take a prominent position and usually sparkle in company. Social activities are likely to get out of hand if Twenty-Threes are allowed their way. This will not happen in this partnership as the Thirteen is certain to exercise restraint. Although showmanship and the desire to remain conspicuous are present in both there is a difference, as in other conditions, in the manner in which each partner performs in company. Thirteens possess a good measure of control over speech, action and the duration of their stay in any place. Twenty-Threes may not exercise as much control. In whatever way the Thirteen may conduct themselves the Twenty-Three may do so in excess. Despite an extroverted nature, Thirteens are rather conservative in their choice of company and behaviour. Twenty-Threes are liberated and adaptable. While Thirteens hold on to their friendships there may be a fast turnover of friends and acquaintances with a Twenty-Three.
In any social scene Thirteens will be regarded as instructive conversationalists due to their ability to centralise their subject matter, leaving emotion out of their speech and keeping to facts and accuracy in whatever they relate to. While they know when to remain silent and allow others their turn to speak, Twenty-Threes usually maintain a constant stream of talk mixed with imagination and emotion. Their conversation is invariably entertaining but not always instructive or with strict relation to facts. The Thirteen’s authoritative nature is such that one may talk with them but not to them. On the other hand, a Twenty-Three may not give one much of a chance to have one’s say. More listening, whether welcome or not, is done by others in a Twenty-Three’s company. Their extraordinary fluency of speech and agile minds give them an advantage well above average in debate and argument. However, their interest in any particular subject under discussion is not sustained. Often they may argue for argument sake. They lose interest as soon as something new has captured their attention. While Twenty-Threes can speak on a great variety of topics their knowledge is not always as deep or specialised as that of the Thirteen who usually confine their speech to their areas of expertise. While Twenty-Threes keep talking a Thirteen may be content to say nothing when they have nothing to say.
Despite differences in speed and impulse these partners can enjoy a good deal of fun together during their leisure time and holidays. The artistic touch is alive and alert in both. Thirteens are excellent solo performers in music and song. Twenty-Threes are natural actors who can change roles with the least effort. They possess an infectious vitality and an unceasing curiosity to know and experience life in all its variety. This is invariably in excess of the time and the means available. Thirteen partners will not be drawn into all the Twenty-Three’s ventures. Despite the need to spend some time at home with home based hobbies the Twenty-Three will choose to be on the move, involved in a variety of social and sporting activities. The intensity of living characteristic of the Twenty-Three will not at all times be agreeable to the Thirteen who needs orderly and regulated days in their non-working activities.
Money is certain to be a constant source of friction in this relationship. These partners have different sets of values in this respect. While both are capable of bringing in a good income their modes of handling their finances are not the same. Thirteens are discriminating spenders and careful investors while Twenty-Threes are often careless spenders and indifferent towards future security. Due to their need to live life to the full and enjoy the present, not worrying about the past or too much about the future, money in their view is meant for spending. This attitude, whether right or wrong, will not be acceptable to the Thirteen’s responsible outlook on life.
A well known truism is that the happiest people are those who think the happiest thoughts. Also, happiness or unhappiness depends on the way or ways one meets life’s events. As individuals, Thirteens and Twenty-Threes certainly fall into these categories. Both meet life’s challenges with optimism. Negative or melancholy thoughts and reactions are usually foreign features in both. The difference, however, is the more constructive approach of the Thirteen and the nonchalant approach of the Twenty-Three. Although both are optimists the Thirteen leaves very little to chance, but the Twenty-Three will not hesitate to dabble in chance or speculation. A Thirteen can influence the Twenty-Three in many subtle ways to avoid acting on impulse or to do the unexpected. A Twenty-Three, in turn, can introduce more enthusiasm and adventure into their activities.
13TH AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS
As odd and even numbers figure prominently in this combination we can expect a natural attraction between subjects of these birthdays. The attraction of opposites takes place despite the fact that the Thirteen is basically an even numbered Four personality (1 + 3 = 4). On the one hand, the dual aspects of the Thirteen offer features that are attractive to the even numbered Twenty-Four, and on the other hand, by virtue of the common 4 vibration, also offer many similar features that would be congenial. By and large, this is a combination that augurs well for a happy and lasting relationship. Superficial differences will be acknowledged and accepted as reciprocal advantages rather than differences that could be disruptive. Complementary aspects will be embraced and similarities affirmed. Both partners are gifted with a rational approach in dealing with day-to-day affairs and in their interaction with each other and with others.
The possession of the 1 vibration and its dominant characteristics by the Thirteen give this individual certain advantages over many Twenty-Fours. Willpower, decisiveness, strength of ego, self-confidence, initiative, leadership, authority, ambition and concentration are some positive qualities injected into the Thirteen by the 1’s vibratory force. In addition, the best aspects of the 3 vibration, many of which are similar to those of the 1, are emphasised. The 1 and 3 are both egoistic and egocentric forces but the basic 4 vibration tends to harness and stabilise these features and direct them into less forceful directions.
Twenty-Fours need the 1 vibration in their birth month in order to possess an adequate measure of self-esteem and self-confidence. The absence of this vibration in the birth month or other significant areas of influence invariably creates an inferior self-image, a lack of self-confidence and the adoption of a defensive attitude which often inhibits many of their natural talents. Twenty-Fours are usually placid and non-competitive people who do not impose their views on others, nor do they seek to lead and direct. Most would rather work alongside a partner or in cooperation with others in a work scene. In other words, they perform best in partnership or as members of a group or team rather than as solo performers. Some may be happy to follow a partner in a secondary role as long as this partner has a temperament that is fair, rational, down-to-earth and practical. Twenty-Fours are basically Six personalities (2 + 4 = 6). As all three vibratory forces forming their personality are receptive in nature their essential qualities complement each other despite the fact that each represents a different plane of expression – the 2 emotional, the 4 physical, and the 6 mental. Far from creating discordance within the integral personality the amalgamation of the 3 planes of expression creates a fine balance within the personality. Twenty-Fours are certainly multi-talented individuals having manual dexterity, adequate emotional expression and analytical minds. With non-competitive and non-aggressive egos their conduct is never intentionally offensive or overbearing. They are basically peace loving people who would rather use their talents in helping others in the capacity of a parent, guardian, carer, teacher, counsellor or in any capacity in the protective services and the medical profession.
Unlike other partnerships the distribution of authority, responsibility and decision making will not create any serious problems. The Twenty-Four deliberates too much when quick thinking and quick action is needed. Nor do they adapt to or welcome change as promptly as does a Thirteen. Consequently, more decisions will be made by the Thirteen, and as the Thirteen’s decisions are usually sound, they will be accepted without too much hesitation by the Twenty-Four. The Twenty-Four, on the other hand, is able to accept and handle responsibility without the least effort as long as they are not pressured by others, and allowed to follow their own pace. They may in fact take up a greater share of domestic responsibility; much to the relief of a career oriented Thirteen, who does not usually regard the role of homemaker as a rewarding occupation. Twenty-Fours can pursue the dual commitment of a career and homemaker better than a Thirteen can. Family life and family togetherness will always be much more essential to their wellbeing than ambition to make a name for themselves in public life. Thirteens will need to remind themselves that the Twenty-Four is not one that can be dominated or selfishly used. Their placid, cooperative and peace loving living ways are their strong points and not their weaknesses. A Twenty-Four as a full-time homemaker needs to be treated as an equal and not with any lower status.
These partners make a socially popular combination, with the Thirteen taking a role in the centre of activity as an entertainer and the Twenty-Four in the background as an organiser and caterer. One will adopt the customary role of actor and solo performer and the other their natural role of observer and quiet achiever. When guests are entertained the food department will usually be run by the Twenty-Four and the drink department by the Thirteen. These are complementary features that contribute to their success as hosts and hostesses. Thirteens are often modern and innovative in their choice of food, music and places of entertainment while Twenty-Fours are rather more conservative and not inclined towards experimentation. In their interaction with others Thirteens are much more independent of public opinion while Twenty-Fours are concerned of the impact they make on others. Social initiatives will invariably be taken by the Thirteen.
A noticeable difference in oral expression will be observed in these personalities. The Thirteen will be the talkative partner and impatient listener and the Twenty-Four the patient listener and selective talker. Twenty-Fours confine their speech to their area of expertise in public and domestic life and for the rest, comfortably remain silent. Thirteens enter a wider range of subject matter but often deflect conversation towards matters relating to their personal life. Twenty-Fours, within reason, can overlook their own affairs and listen with concern to the affairs of others. They are able to communicate successfully with a voice seldom raised in authority or censure. Thirteens speak with a degree of self-assurance and authority that is usually successful in public life but needs to be toned down in private life. They do not expect their views to be challenged. Although their conversation may be rather self-centred they can still hold the attention of others with a natural sense of humour and incisive replies and remarks, especially on matters that do not meet with their approval. Twenty-Fours are always appreciative of good humour but do not usually originate humour, and are much more circumspect in giving their opinions. They are more tolerant of diverse opinions as long as their own views are not challenged. When this is done, as a Thirteen is likely to do, the Twenty-Four can be adamant and argumentative. In general, people are attracted to the Thirteen for their variety of topics and entertaining speech and to the Twenty-Four for the help, patience and counsel they willingly give to those who approach them.
As energetic and enterprising individuals Thirteens spend much of their spare time in outdoor activity. They excel in any form of sport due to their alert, ambitious and competitive nature. Their level of personal vanity is also responsible for their need to succeed. It is much higher than that of the Twenty-Four. They are seldom found at home during their non-working hours. Twenty-Fours, on the other hand, following their home-oriented temperament and their manual dexterity spend much of their time with home based hobbies. They are not keen travellers and eagerly await their return home after infrequent trips away. In sporting activities their competitive spirit does not endure for long. They usually choose solo sport, non-competitive or mildly competitive sport.
Financial stability is assured in this partnership. Both are competent and responsible money managers. Thirteens may indulge in a wider range of expenditure, particularly on personal items and their recreational activities. In sharing their wealth with others they are neither open-handed nor tight-fisted, but seldom deviate from a sensible attitude towards their obligations. Their ability to make prompt decisions, their quick perception of value plus their natural impatience combine to make them speedy but reliable spenders. While money is treated as an essential requirement they do not allow their financial position to influence their sense of wellbeing. This cannot be said as a rule of the Twenty-Four. Although money is not allowed to govern their lives Twenty-Fours feel more concern for their financial security. Hence spending on themselves and on others is much less. In their interaction with others they may be exceptionally generous with their time, their manual skills and their sound advice but they could be quite tight-fisted with their money. As ‘charity begins at home’ is their motto they do not raise objections when controlled spending is confined to home and family. While Thirteens may exercise control over important decisions, day-to-day living expenditure is likely to be taken over by the Twenty-Four. They are seldom impetuous and usually hesitate when forced to make quick purchases as they need to consider all aspects before parting with their money. Despite their differences Thirteens and Twenty-Fours will adjust to each other’s standards and habits in money management.
As their need for mental and physical stimulation is greater Thirteens are able to face the ups and downs of life with all its variety with relatively little adverse effect upon their wellbeing. Twenty-Fours are quite capable of facing hard times but in their personal lives the craving for balance and the restoration of balance after any upheaval is much more urgent. A tranquil and uninterrupted lifestyle is more important to them than one that offers excitement and change. They often resist change in anticipation of negative rather than positive results. While Thirteens are usually aroused by moods of elation and self-satisfaction Twenty-Fours can be subject to periods of melancholy and even self-reproach. However, in due course the confidence Thirteens possess will provide a strong sense of security to the Twenty-Four while the calm of the Twenty Four’s general demeanour will in turn introduce a warm and homely atmosphere into the couple’s domestic life. The Twenty-Four’s love and devotion will always be revealed by regular and thoughtful acts and unfailing devotion to duty. When necessary they will readily make concessions especially when domestic harmony needs to be restored. This may not always be necessary as a Thirteen will not, as a habit, raise issues that create dissension. Although these partners use slightly different methods, both consciously and unconsciously seek to arrive at the same goal, namely a lively and at the same time peaceful and successful life together. Differences are in temperament and not in ideas.
13TH AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS
Both birthdays are a mixture of odd and even numbers, or active and receptive vibrations. However, active vibrations are dominant and consequently, exercise a stronger influence upon each personality. Thirteens and Twenty-Fives are motivated by characteristics of these active powers with receptive forces holding only a mitigating influence. Unlike persons influenced only by receptive vibrations who are comfortable with their own kind, those controlled by active forces are not usually attracted to each other and are not quite at ease in each other’s company. There are too many individual and self-assertive qualities in each that could be drawn into confrontation. However, in the event of a partnership being formed between Thirteens and Twenty-Fives, which is certainly not out of the question, much work will need to be done by both partners in the areas of decision making, authority and leadership. Until some measure of success is achieved personality clashes in these areas are inevitable. If this problem can be resolved to a reasonable extent a rewarding relationship is assured as both partners have much to offer each other. In this regard they can be helped by the receptive element within their personality. Its cooperative and peace loving qualities can be evoked. A deliberate effort will be needed for enduring success.
Both Thirteens and Twenty-Fives appear, for the most part, as dual personalities. The Thirteen is a qualified Four personality (1 + 3 = 4). As qualities of the 1 and 3 vibrations are quite distinct from those of the 4, Thirteens can hardly be recognised as even numbered Four personalities. The active qualities of the 1 and 3 operating in the foreground of the personality conceal their 4 aspect to a degree that separates them from those born on the 4th day. However, 4 features may be concealed but not suppressed. They are in fact expanded and strengthened by the initiative qualities of the 1 and 3. The integral Thirteen is an effective and multi-talented individual with a combination of mental activity and manual dexterity. Being natural leaders they cannot be relegated to subordinate positions in any area of life, nor do they willingly enter into equal partnerships. Assumption of a leadership role will not be exceptional due to their instinctive desire to take charge. This will not succeed with fiercely individualistic Twenty-Fives who safeguard their freedom of thought, speech and action against all threats. They do not seek to lead or dominate as a Thirteen may do but their method would be to influence others to turn to their ways of doing things. This practice is not likely to succeed in this relationship because Thirteens are not easily influenced or manipulated. The distribution of authority is best resolved by an amicable division of areas of responsibility. Despite the 3 vibrations that comprise their personality Thirteens cannot be regarded as complicated or puzzling individuals. Their 1, 3 and 4 forces integrate without causing contradictions that could disturb the individual and others. This cannot be said of the Twenty-Five.
Although basically a Seven personality it is not easy to identify a Twenty-Five as such (2 + 5 =
7). The vibratory forces controlling the outer personality, namely the 2 and 5 are of a different type to that of the basic 7, and consequently they obscure many 7 features. People who are not familiar with a Twenty-Five find their changes of mood perplexing. Unlike the 3 vibrations controlling the Thirteen the 2, 5 and 7 within the Twenty-Five do not integrate as evenly. Often they could be at variance with each other causing uneasiness and restlessness within the integral personality. For the most part the 2 and 5, particularly the 5, are extroverted forces while the 7 introduces certain reclusive or withdrawn qualities. In addition, the Twenty-Five’s emotions are unpredictable. The 2 and 5 aspects operate from the emotional plane providing easy emotional release but the 7 aspect from the physical plane along with its recluse nature has a real aversion for display of emotion. A constant battle for control and release of emotion takes place within the Twenty-Five. As the emotional plane is not represented in the Thirteen’s basic personality they do not encounter this difficulty. They just do not feel the need to demonstrate their emotions. While outbursts of emotion can be expected from a Twenty-Five they are not often seen in a Thirteen. The only occasion a Thirteen may display the emotion of anger is when they are frustrated by lazy or incompetent people.
Both partners are career oriented people. Being versatile and multi-talented they are able to pick and choose from a wide range of employment. Thirteens are not likely to resort to much change of direction once settled in a career. They usually remain and succeed in their first choice or in some instances their second choice. They are also able to follow an avocation that brings in a supplementary income. Twenty-Fives may often yield to the urge to try something new or different. They too can take on more than one income earning occupation and do so with greater ease than a Thirteen can due to their more flexible and adaptable nature. In the domestic scene the Thirteen is more likely to take up indoor jobs such as cooking, decoration, and home maintenance. Twenty-Fives will be attracted to the garden. However, the involvement of these partners in both areas is interchangeable.
As mentioned earlier the extroverted features of the Thirteen are consistent and reliable while those of the Twenty-Five are uncertain and cannot be taken for granted. These differences will be reflected in their choice of social activity and social behaviour. Thirteens express a mixture of innovative ideas, humour and self-consciousness in a positive way. Twenty-Fives are usually a medley of personal magnetism, reserve and expanded horizons. They reflect a combination of several personality traits. There is an inner conflict between the need for physical activity and interaction with people on the one hand, and the need for solitude and enjoyment of their own company on the other hand. Thirteens do not undergo this type of conflict due to their uniform personality structure. However, in a given social scene both partners possess a knack of getting the best out of the time they spend. Their social obligations are not likely to create division within their ranks. Neither partner needs stimulation by others to make them sparkle in company, although the Thirteen’s desire to be conspicuous in company is stronger than that of the Twenty-Five. The Twenty-Five will always be more selective of the company in which they relax and open out. Both possess strong inner resources to face or change conditions not to their liking. Rather than be conditioned by circumstances they are able to condition circumstances. Thirteens are not necessarily dependent on social interaction for their wellbeing and should have little difficulty understanding the Twenty-Five’s need for privacy and isolation from time to time.
Both partners possess the capacity to articulate their thoughts with ease. Oral communication with the addition of meaningful body language is an asset to be used when the need for discussion of general or intimate issues arise. At the same time, as neither can put up with constant talk, or excessive incessant speech the harmony of their relationship will not be damaged. Both favour action to talk. In an argument neither partner has an advantage over the other in verbal duelling. Although slight differences may appear in their approach to a matter under discussion or in an argument, their capacity to take a stand and uphold their views is about the same. Twenty-Fives could be more emotionally stirred up without showing their feelings too much while Thirteens could be unrelenting when they take a stand. Periods of silence can also be observed by both. This will usually take place when the Thirteen is found concentrating on some mental or physical activity and by the Twenty-Five while contemplating on some abstract matter or communing with nature. In general conversation, both partners usually talk of things that make people listen to them and they feel better for doing so. Personal matters may figure prominently in the Thirteen’s conversation while Twenty-Fives are relatively impersonal. They are better listeners than the Thirteens are. Despite the Thirteen’s partiality for subjective issues their conversation is intermingled with imagination, humour, commonsense and colourful language – qualities which combine to make them interesting speakers. They do not, however, patiently accept interruption or challenges to their views. The Twenty-Five’s objectivity is seen in the considerable variety of topics introduced into their conversation which could range from the superficial and mundane to the profound. The personal magnetism emerging from most Twenty-Fives easily holds the attention of their listeners. While Thirteens may reveal much of themselves through speech and make it easy for others to decide upon a form of approach, Twenty-Fives reveal much less of themselves. As a consequence, people who do not really know a Twenty-Five are often uncertain and watchful in their association with them.
Both partners are stimulated by an abundance of mental and physical energy, all of which will not be used up in their regular employment and essential domestic tasks. They are certain to use excess energy and skills in avocations and several recreational activities. Inactivity and laziness are features quite alien to their temperament. Although a second source of income can be created in any of their recreational activities their motive will be personal accomplishment and pleasure and not necessarily the accumulation of money. Twenty-Fives in particular, have an unceasing curiosity to know and experience life in all its variety. They are genuine travellers who acquire a great quantity of knowledge through a sharpened awareness of things. They do not close their minds to ideas and observations simply because they have not been tried or experienced before and therefore foreign to their experience. Thirteens may not be far behind although their sense of curiosity and desire for change, movement and travel is not as keen. They may not always follow a Twenty-Five who delves into the metaphysical and mystical aspects of life as many Thirteens may assume that the totality of life is that which they recognise by physical and mental means and no more. Twenty-Fives, both consciously and unconsciously, include the spiritual plane in their overall concept of life. Thirteens are equipped with the faculties needed for consummate artistic expression. The 3 aspect provides imagination, appreciation of beauty and colour, optimism, innovation and modern ideas. Their 4 aspect provides an accurate sense of form and design and the self-discipline to complete whatever task they undertake. The 1 aspect of course is responsible for strong self-confidence and the ego strength never to give up a challenge. By virtue of their underlying 7 aspect Twenty-Fives are nature lovers and environmentalists. It is also the 2 and 7 aspects of the Twenty-Five, along with the curiosity of the 5 that prompts many to investigate the non-physical aspects of life. Despite these personality differences Thirteens and Twenty-Fives should not be prevented from enjoying a good deal of time together during their non-working hours. Although the flexibility and adaptability of the Twenty-Five may be more than that of the Thirteen the things these partners can enjoy in common are far in excess of what could separate them. Self time and shared time will fall into place without either partner feeling isolated or crowded.
Management of their finances should not be a problem as both have relatively the same attitude towards money and its uses. There is a good balance in both in regard to expenditure on the one hand and saving and investment on the other. The 3 aspect in the Thirteen and the 5 in the Twenty-Five favour generosity in spending while the 4 aspect in the Thirteen and the 7 in the Twenty-Five are exemplary money managers. Consequently, neither will be given to excessive spending or unnecessary thrift. Mutual agreement in regard to the handling of day-to-day expenses as well as major purchases and investment can be reached without disagreement. Although both partners are individualists by nature they will realise sooner or later that much of life is compromise and that success is unlimited when a pair of resourceful individuals amicably pool their talents. In other words they would soon know that success is assured when partners are equals, their obligations reciprocal and their dependence mutual. Both will learn to strictly avoid a habit of making decisions without consulting each other. They may also discover that in most instances one would find it difficult to offer advice to the other for any advice one may offer may have already been thought of and tried by the other. The Thirteen may expect to receive more attention than they are prepared to give, or to concede and compromise on contentious issues. While the Twenty-Five will be found to be more conciliatory the Thirteen should be careful not to take undue advantage of a Twenty-Five partner or take them for granted. There is a strong thread of romance which runs through the personality of both partners which can keep this relationship appealing and very much alive. While emotional demonstration will not be overdone an interchange of sentiment in private will ensure an intimacy not apparent to observers.
13TH AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS
Among the various natural laws we are subject to, the law of attraction expresses itself most in the formation of an intimate association we term as a relationship or marriage. The attraction of opposite forces will be responsible for friendship, in the first instance, between Thirteen and Twenty-Six personalities. Mutual admiration of each other’s personality traits is sure to increase as their association develops into closer intimacy. Conversely, it could be said that intimacy will increase in proportion to the admiration each is certain to develop for the other. When this takes place both will make the pleasant discovery that they not only possess complementary characteristics but also the same fundamental values needed for a successful and happy life together.
The 1 and 3 vibrations controlling the outer personality of the Thirteen are in essence the opposite of that of the 2 and 6 controlling the outer personality of the Twenty-Six – hence the attraction. The 1 and 3 are ‘go out and get’ active forces and the 2 and 6 are ‘serve and receive’ receptive forces. The nature of these forces is to irresistibly fuse, join, or marry. In human terms, one will provide in abundance features in which the other lacks or is deficient.
The Thirteen is fundamentally a Four personality (1 + 3 = 4) and is therefore one who is ultimately controlled by a receptive force. A well-rounded personality is formed by the interaction of the 1, 3 and 4 vibrations. They do not pull in different directions with a consequence of one aspect clamouring for expression at the expense of the others. On the contrary, a coalition is created giving considerable strength to the integral personality. This condition will help Thirteen and Twenty-Six partners reach the same goals though they may seek them by different means and different priorities. The differences being in temperament and not in ideas, they are not likely to obscure the basic similarity of their aims. They may, on the other hand, contribute towards strengthening and expanding their efforts towards exploitation of each other’s talents. The 4 aspect of the Thirteen has also the effect of moderating over-energetic behaviour prompted by the 1 and 3 that may disturb the generally placid forces of the Twenty-Six.
The Twenty Six is fundamentally an Eight personality (2 + 6 = 8). Here again, the 2, 6 and 8 forces, following their receptive nature, do not counteract each other, but merge happily to form a mainly uniform personality structure. While Thirteens find their best expression on the physical and mental planes and somewhat inadequate self-expression on the emotional plane, Twenty-Sixes possess more than adequate expression on the emotional and mental planes and less attraction to activity on the physical plane. However, this condition is not final as the qualities they lack from their birthday vibrations may be provided to a fair extent by the vibrations of their birth month. Thirteens born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months possess the additional facet or outlet for moderate sentimental expression and the Twenty-Six born in the 1st, 4th or 7th months are equipped with the capacity to merge their mental and emotional nature with down-to-earth and practical skills. The only difference is the sentimental demonstration by the Thirteen being somewhat restricted and the practical application by the Twenty-Six being unrestricted.
Positive thought and action as well as negative opposites play a significant role in determining the success of any partnership. In this partnership the Thirteen is instinctively a positive individual acting with optimism, self-confidence and more than adequate self-esteem. These qualities make them natural leaders, decision makers and producers. Although they may at times be subject to fits of frustration, impatience and even anger they do not suffer from attacks of despondency or pessimism. However, a Twenty-Six who is not born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months may suffer from varying degrees of indecision and anxiety and underestimate themselves as a result. All Twenty-Sixes are organisers and administrators rather than outright leaders, pioneers or initiators. Whether in a domestic scene or public life, all systems run smoothly with a Twenty-Six in charge. In a domestic scene especially, a Twenty-Six will not take kindly to being ordered by the natural leadership tendencies of the Thirteen, They would do their part willingly and competently without being told to do so or shown how things should be done. A Thirteen partner will soon experience the competence of a Twenty-Six and cease any interference. For their part, the Twenty-Six, as a natural tactician, will handle the Thirteen by suggestion and example. The power of influence in the Twenty-Six is greater than the influence of power.
The Thirteen’s tendency to take charge of things should be reserved for public life and not within the domestic scene. Sooner rather than later this relationship will fall into an equal footing. One will not feel overshadowed by the other. Although the domestic impulse and family ties will be much stronger in the Twenty-Six both partners will be prepared to carry an equal load in family responsibility. The Twenty-Six is able to shoulder a dual role of breadwinner and homemaker with more acceptance than a Thirteen. The Thirteen will be less inclined to accept both roles, preferring to concentrate on a successful career. The Twenty-Six will find family ups and downs more emotionally moving and therefore more partial towards demands of family members. Thirteens are able to see and deal with such matters more objectively and with a greater measure of discipline.
Prompted by their extroverted and self-assured temperament Thirteens usually occupy a prominent spot in any social scene by taking up the task of creating and maintaining a lively and jovial atmosphere. Unlike the Thirteen, the Twenty-Six will not attempt to initiate or change conditions, preferring to mingle unobtrusively in company of their choice and remain as an observer or helper rather than a solo performer. Their best expression being in group activity, they provide and derive as much pleasure in this manner as a Thirteen does in an individual capacity. They are certainly not without the capacity to make an impact in company, although they await the right moment or atmosphere before they make their presence felt. As the social attitudes of these partners are not the same they do not compete with each other. Rather, each takes up an individual niche in society. They would instantly close ranks in a situation that threatens the wellbeing of one or the other. The Twenty-Six will be the possessive partner and the Thirteen the protective one. Neither is likely to fall into extremes of behaviour in any situation. Thirteens possess inbuilt features that prevent them from selfish and egoistic conduct. The 3 aspect of their personality introduces friendliness and courtesy. People are always attracted to them for their sense of humour and entertainment skills. Twenty-Sixes move in society as thoughtful, tactful and obliging individuals. They attract people through personal warmth, hospitality and natural skills as advisers, confidants and counsellors. All Twenty-Sixes are natural psychologists. Many take to the healing professions in one form or the other.
Communication between these partners should be free of restraint, embarrassment or inhibition. They are neither taciturn, secretive nor inarticulate whenever there is a need to voice their opinions. However, the Twenty-Six may be able to voice their feelings better than the Thirteen can. Both partners derive considerable pleasure and benefit in sharing information and experiences. The Thirteen may speak with a voice that is brisk and decisive. Twenty-Six personalities do not raise their voice in authority or reproof and are able to capture attention and respect when they decide to speak out. The Thirteen is likely to be the more vocal partner. Their personal affairs will figure largely in their conversation, allowing little time or patience to listen to the affairs of others. The Twenty-Six, on the other hand, is much more tolerant and receptive to the personal affairs of others and less talkative about their own affairs. While the Thirteen’s speech is flavoured with optimism and good humour, that of the Twenty-Six may reveal a touch of uncertainty and worry. Together with the greater emotional content in the Twenty-Six there is a strong element of logic and reason. They are ever ready to counter any unreasonable or factually incorrect statement made by anyone. However, this is not likely to happen in their interaction with a Thirteen partner who has a natural tendency towards accuracy in all things. As a matter of fact the Thirteen will be more insistent on accuracy in speech and action while the Twenty-Six will be more insistent on fairness.
These are not people who choose to idle away their time during non-working hours, calling it relaxation. They are open to an exceptionally wide range of recreational activities and hobbies either individually or as a twosome. Relaxation will be found in their chosen recreations. While they may not always do things as a pair a keen mutual interest in art, music, literature and sport will see them often participate together. This will be in addition to a mutual interest in home decoration, home maintenance and cooking. It is possible that the Twenty-Six will take a keener interest in domestic affairs, especially in culinary activity. All persons influenced by the 6 vibration are good cooks. Thirteens may spend more time in sport as their competitive spirits are keener in these personalities. However, as a couple, Thirteens and Twenty-Sixes will be known for well organised and well catered home entertainment. The Twenty-Six will be the partner who puts in a little more effort towards the caring and upbringing of children because the parenting instinct is stronger in this personality. The Thirteen will always provide a protective shield or umbrella under which family management will be safely carried out by the Twenty-Six. These partners may not be keen travellers as attachment to home and familiar scenes is too strong to keep them away for long. This is particularly the case with the Twenty-Six who will seldom if ever overstay their visits away. Their holidays when taken will be spent in destinations already familiar to them.
Charity begins at home will be the policy adapted by both in their financial affairs. Although neither partner can be said to be mean spirited or ungenerous, their aim will be to satisfy their own needs and establish family security before extending help to others. Although they will not begrudge reasonable donations to worthy causes the assistance they give others will be more in the form of service and advice than in financial contributions. Their attitude towards money is not too dissimilar, but, here again, the optimism of the Thirteen and the caution of the Twenty-Six will meet and create a beneficial outcome rather than a counteracting condition. The Thirteen will be willing to make bold moves while the Twenty-Six may take a more circumspect approach to spending on larger items. A balancing effect is created because the inner personality of the Thirteen, that is their 4 aspect, shares the same cautious views of the Twenty-Six. These partners are not problem gamblers and are not likely to indulge in any form of recklessness in expenditure or investment. Joint accounts can safely be kept because mutual trust can be established early in their relationship. Expenditure for the day-to-day running of the household is likely to be taken over by the Twenty-Six.
It is not in the nature of either partner to develop habits or resort to behaviour that could be harmful to their relationship. Although their moods may not always coincide the friendship aspect of this relationship will always remain alive. The Thirteen may expect a little more personal space and the Twenty-Six may expect a little more togetherness. These needs will soon be recognised and complied with. However, concessions will be made with greater willingness by the Twenty-Six. This partner will be more inclined to share their anxieties, although many of their worries will be unnecessary and self-generated. The positivity of the Thirteen is certain to clear away many of their problems. Thirteens do not generally entertain unrealistic worries, but are not without their share of life’s complexities. They face them without passing them onto others. A perplexed Twenty-Six responds better to understanding than to correction or criticism. A perplexed Thirteen needs to be left alone to work out their problems. There will certainly be occasions when a Thirteen needs to talk about a problem, and in this event the Twenty-Six will turn out to be a wise, sympathetic and patient listener and counsellor.
The personality differences of these partners cannot be compared or contrasted with a view to ascertaining who provides a better contribution towards a compatible relationship. Each has to be accepted as entirely individual. Nothing in the behaviour of the Twenty-Six should elude the understanding of the Thirteen. Likewise the Twenty-Six should not fail to correctly assess the potential of the Thirteen. At the same time, it would be found that the Twenty-Six will be more inclined towards self-analysis. They will be more inclined to blame themselves than others for any lapse, disappointment or unfair response from another. A clash between ambition for success in public life and a stable and harmonious domestic life may exist in many Twenty-Sixes with the latter desire eventually succeeding. They can happily opt out of excessive competition in public life without much regret and find fulfilment in domestic affairs. Many will choose moderate achievement in public life and maximum success in family life. Thirteens are not faced with this choice or dilemma as their ambition for success in public life is much stronger.
13TH AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS
The attraction of opposites will be responsible for a budding friendship between Thirteen and Twenty-Seven personalities. An enthusiastic interchange of many complementary features will result in their friendship blossoming into a closer relationship. However, as their relationship develops they will also discover that their personality traits and aims in life are not altogether complementary. Features that are exclusive to each personality, which are not readily exchanged or observed at the early stages, will gradually emerge. Differences will be seen in the physical realm as well as in the abstract or spiritual realm. Those features in the physical realm will be somewhat easier to reconcile while those in the non-physical realm will not be as reciprocal, and it will be in this area that most adjustments will be called for. The Thirteen is essentially a mentally and physically oriented individual with limited expression on the emotional plane and limited curiosity in the metaphysical aspects of life. In general, the totality of life for this personality is that which can be recognised by mental and physical means. Concentration on personal success in physical and practical affairs leaves very little time for delving into their spiritual nature. If at all, they may follow conventional forms of religion. They are, to a large extent, ego-centred individuals who are not satisfied with small accomplishments. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, place greater emphasis on impersonal, moral and spiritual values than on the pursuit of material wealth and personal power. The totality of life in their view cannot be conceived without the inclusion of spiritual forces. They too will not be satisfied with small accomplishments but this will be in the realm of personal enlightenment which inevitably includes probing into the hidden side of life and giving of themselves in service to others. The differences in the scale of values between Thirteens and Twenty-Sevens have to be acknowledged and reconciled.
The Thirteen’s ego is much more active and forceful than that of the Twenty-Seven. It may also be said that while the Thirteen’s ego controls their personality, for the most part the Twenty-Seven’s ego has been subdued and replaced to a fair extent by wisdom and impersonal attitudes. On account of their dominant ego Thirteens possess the self-confidence, initiative, decisiveness and authority of natural leaders. Their effective leadership qualities ensure success in public life but need to be applied with discretion in family life, especially in their relationship with a Twenty-Seven. Their natural ability to make swift and on the spot decisions will be admired and relied upon by the Twenty-Seven but not their tendency to take charge and issue orders. Twenty Sevens lead their lives by personal resolve to do the right thing at the right time and not by external influence or duress. With firm belief in individuality and personal freedom they will not directly attempt to govern their partners. The need for personal power in order to boost their egos has no meaning to these individuals. They therefore lead by example and the influence of charismatic personality traits. By this means the Twenty-Seven ultimately gains greater influence than by the direct imposition of their personality. Here again the differences between Thirteen and Twenty-Seven personalities are due to the fact that the thought processes of the former are swift and constructive and largely self-centred while those of the latter are mostly reflective, introspective and impersonal. Thirteens draw upon their intellect and practical knowledge for solutions to their problems and challenges while Twenty-Sevens, in addition to mental powers, draw upon intuition, philosophical and spiritual considerations. At the same time Twenty-Sevens should not be taken as other-worldly persons. They are not without their share of practical knowledge and attraction to physical aspects of life, nor are the Thirteens devoid of ethical values. Differences are merely in emphasis and application.
As Thirteens and Twenty-Sevens may not relate to each other on every level of activity there will be times when they need different people in their lives. Their choice of friends, acquaintances and social activities may on some occasions take different directions. It should not be surprising to find Thirteens having a stronger attachment to socially oriented people who enjoy frequent meetings during which all manner of activities are engaged in. There will be a clear emphasis on cultural as well as physical activity. Social popularity is important to the Thirteen. They do not fail to gain popularity through their keen sense of humour, a fund of information on a great variety of subjects, their entertainment skills and their up-to-date knowledge of the latest fashions in all aspects of living. Their philosophy of life deals with tangible things and clear-cut self-expression. Characteristics of the 1, 3 and 4 vibrations which form the integral personality (1 + 3 = 4) are straightforward and uncomplicated, creating an extroverted, approachable personality with few changeable moods. Although they may present an opinionated manner people do not feel confused or uncertain in their presence.
The 2, 7 and 9 vibrations moulding the Twenty-Seven (2 + 7 = 9) are of an entirely different nature. In the first instance sensitivity, shyness and a tentative and peaceful nature are hallmarks of the 2. This is a receptive and caring force as opposed to the active and acquisitive qualities of the 1 and 3 which are so much part of the integral Thirteen. 2 forces also open an individual to extrasensory perception as long as these faculties have not been inhibited by environmental influences. There is a certain aloofness present in the Twenty-Seven created by the 2 which is enhanced by their 7 aspect. This combination keeps them in touch with their inner selves; hence the spirituality of the Twenty-Seven’s temperament. In general, the deeper the spirituality the greater is the distance from mundane trivialities. Whenever it is present in the birthday, birth month or as the Destiny number the 7 vibration creates the need to probe into the nature and meaning of life, making the personality the perennial student. The fundamental 9 aspect is a universal force which opens out the personality of the Twenty-Seven and takes them, however reluctantly, into the world at large. Reluctance is due to the sensitivity and shyness of the 2 aspect and the introspection of the 7. In a social scene a Twenty-Seven may be found preoccupied and not easily approachable or befriended. They generally make no effort to acquire social popularity. Those who penetrate a Twenty-Seven’s facade discover an individual with a fascinating fund of knowledge as well as being an honourable and loyal friend. In general, Thirteens attract a greater number and variety of people through their entertainment skills and Twenty-Sevens, a more select class of people for their profound nature and ability to inspire others.
A retentive memory, a voice of fine tonal quality and an extensive vocabulary are gifts enjoyed by the Thirteen. As accomplished conversationalists and speechmakers they speak with confidence, authority and a sense of finality. The necessity to explain themselves is seldom felt, nor are they apologetic or open to challenge. The opinions of others are not usually given the same consideration and acceptance they demand of their own views. Their conversation is often centred on their personal affairs but could still be interesting and informative. Laughter is often an accompaniment of their speech. Twenty-Sevens possess the potential to emerge as outstanding public speakers by virtue of the powers of the 9 vibration, but all too often are held in check by the outer forces of the 2 and 7. These forces incline more towards the written word than the spoken word. Silence is also a special trait of the 7. Those influenced by the 7 can remain silent without feeling the need to fill in gaps in conversation. When a Twenty-Seven participates in conversation they keep personal matters at a bare minimum choosing a much wider range of impersonal topics covering tangible and intangible matters. They are not dogmatic speakers and quite often they need to be urged on to give their views on a particular subject. When they do so, their 9 aspect takes over, enabling them to reach heights of eloquence. Both Thirteens and Twenty-Sevens are able to talk of things that make people feel better for listening to them.
The Thirteen will be drawn into some form of physical activity for recreation. The desire for fame, a competitive spirit, mental and physical fitness and their positive attitude combine to create qualities needed for excellence in all types of sport. However, many Thirteens need not confine themselves to outdoor interests as avenues for expression of natural talent. Many are gifted musicians. Those who do not specialise in music are creative artists. They are naturally drawn to vocations or avocations requiring a keen sense of beauty, colour, form and design, such as art, sculpture, interior decoration, and the ability to concentrate on a particular task is another gift enjoyed by all Thirteens. Although their imaginative and creative powers are well above average they are not tempted to switch from one thing to another. It is in their choice of hobbies and recreational activities that clear differences are seen between Thirteens and Twenty-Sevens. While Thirteens are essentially practical and external in their choice of recreational activities Twenty-Sevens are sandwiched between realistic and idealistic options. While Thirteens strive for excellence in the physical realm Twenty-Sevens, depending to some extent on the background of each individual, strive for excellence in ethical and philosophical living as well as controlled enjoyment of physical pleasure. They are inveterate enquirers and investigators who develop the habit of transforming recreational time into learning processes. Thirteens live by a simpler code of ethics devoid of an urge to probe into the deeper meaning of life. Spiritual beliefs that may shelter a Thirteen may stifle a Twenty-Seven. If a change of thinking comes to a Thirteen through the prolonged influence of a Twenty-Seven it will come slowly and the individual may be hardly conscious of it. While a Thirteen may gather instruments or other practical resources that are useful to their hobbies, Twenty-Sevens will certainly concentrate on building a library of esoteric literature. These partners may not always lead parallel lives during their spare time as Twenty-Sevens also possess musical talent and a keen interest in all the fine arts. Travel will always be of educational interest to both. No sooner a home is established will the Twenty-Seven take to the garden, and the Thirteen to home decoration and maintenance. Twenty-Sevens are born nature lovers and environmentalists. Communion with their inner selves which cannot be done amidst the hustle and bustle of public activity is enjoyed in their gardens or else in National Parks and wilderness adventures. Thirteens do not feel such an urgent need to get away from public life in order to enjoy their own company, as they are not as easily disturbed by the ferment of social and business activity.
Money matters will be given greater attention by the Thirteen. Financial matters will not be allowed to overshadow other forms of activity in the Twenty-Seven. As the Thirteen will be more conversant with prevailing financial conditions a larger say in the disposal of their finances will be had by this partner. On a comparative basis the Thirteen will be the more cautious and responsible spender. Generosity will be directed to themselves and family members while the generosity of the Twenty-Seven will be extended into the community and beyond. Thirteens may be much more generous with their time and expertise in their own field of expertise although Twenty-Sevens could surpass them in this respect. Both partners enjoy the comforts of life acquired with money. Thirteens may be more attached to their possessions. The philosophy of nonattachment would be developing in most Twenty-Sevens but may remain at an incipient stage in the Thirteen. For the most part whatever the Twenty-Seven does will be more for personal development than for profit while the Thirteen will combine personal accomplishment with monetary gain.
By and large, this is a couple that will not conform to other people’s values and customs. This will help them concentrate on reconciling their own differences. Thirteens will draw upon their intellect and considerable practical skills for solving their problems and establishing a prosperous and happy lifestyle. Twenty-Sevens will draw upon intuition, philosophical, ethical and inspirational insights. The combination of the two methods will inevitably result in a partnership of considerable wealth and strength.
13TH AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS
A Thirteen/Twenty-Eight combination is not an easy one to analyse in terms of compatibility. Strong-willed and assertive personalities are formed by both birthdays. Their dominant features of independence, leadership, self-reliance and authority, though exhibited in different ways, are bound to come into collision. The paradoxical position here is that neither of the two will be attracted to and settle down with a partner seen as insecure and dependent. Both admire strength of character and at the same time reject a secondary role in any form of partnership. There is also a subtle difference in their expectations. Thirteens would want to be the decision making partner and the Twenty-Eight will expect to be the organiser. Seniority is a position dear to all Twenty-Eights and once this is accepted they become protective, generous, proud and resourceful partners and parents. Deprived of this status they are likely to display oppressive and arbitrary ways in order to establish their authority. They may settle for a partnership of equals provided there is a clear division of responsibility. There is nothing that disturbs a Twenty-Eight more than disruption of their well considered and organised ways of doing things. While deliberation and planning are essential feature in the Twenty-Eight’s lifestyle Thirteens are quick thinking and on the spot decision makers. Their decisions are not made from impulse or sentiment but by alert, active and imaginative mental faculties. A swift intake of new knowledge is a gift enjoyed by all Thirteens. This enables them to assess a situation without delay. A Thirteen is never a plodding student. While a Twenty-Eight may consider the needs of others and resort to consultation before making firm decisions, Thirteens may not always do so. This is not intentional and is more due to the stronger ego-centred thinking of this personality. While both like to have their own way a Twenty-Eight may be more reasonable because they are better able to see more sides of an issue than the one-pointed Thirteen.
Both partners enjoy a struggle against opposition. The first impact on a Thirteen is stronger and their response almost immediate whereas the Twenty-Eight may show more resilience and a calculated response. Thirteens of all ages tend to take immediate charge of circumstances and act quickly and effectively while Twenty-Eights need to deliberate and plan before taking a stand on any issue. Consequently, some Twenty-Eights may show a degree of reticence to act until they become involved in an emergency. In such a situation their ample resources will be demonstrated. Unplanned and unpremeditated activity is usually rejected by this personality. Both Thirteens and Twenty-Eights feel instinctively that projects will turn out right if they are in charge, and this is not fanciful thinking or feeling. As leaders, both remain in good spirits thereby inspiring subordinates and others who look up to them for ideas and leadership. Thirteens usually choose to do things themselves while Twenty-Eights possess the natural ability to see talent in others and delegate duties; hence their expertise as organisers and administrators. Whatever approach they may take, both will see one project through to completion before starting another. Thirteens are able to keep their emotions on an even keel and suffer minimal emotional disturbance in most conditions. Twenty-Eights could suffer emotional turmoil although their condition is seldom revealed to observers. While any form of work put in by the Thirteen is confined to mental and physical energy Twenty-Eights add considerable emotional energy into whatever they do. Consequently, their emotional reactions are greater.
Both partners gain popularity in social life, although the amount of time spent in social involvement will be limited. Desire to achieve eminence in their chosen careers or businesses will be given priority. Many of their social engagements will be with their work associates rather than with those unconnected with their public life. They are not reserved or unfriendly with neighbours or with potential acquaintances and friends but, as people who lead busy lives, they have limited time for extensive social interaction. However, when time allows, the Thirteen being the more imaginative partner is likely to take the initiative in making new acquaintances. Twenty-Eights are more conservative and generally await an introduction before communicating with a newcomer or stranger. Thirteens, by virtue of the youthful 3 vibration, strive to keep up to date with new fashions and modern ideas. Many are innovators of new fashions in dress and general conduct. Twenty-Eights are comfortable maintaining conservative habits. In general conversation as well, the Twenty-Eight is inclined to be responsive while the Thirteen is initiative. There is more sparkle and wit in the Thirteen’s speech aided by a bountiful vocabulary and a voice of fine tonal quality. Many Thirteens command the centre of attention in any gathering, but they could be often oblivious to the fact that others need a turn to voice their opinions. Twenty-Eights may lack sparkle and a spontaneous sense of humour but their speech is invariably replete with facts and figures and is always direct and to the point. They do not waste words by resorting to flowery language, ambiguous speech or irrelevant digressions. Those who have achieved material success and power emerge as commanding personalities whose experience would deter others from taking any sort of stand against them. Thirteens are certainly not without authenticity when consulted on any matter. Differences are seen only in their flamboyant speech as opposed to the circumspect delivery of the Twenty-Eight.
A wider field of recreational activity may be undertaken by the Thirteen. Proportionate time will be given to mental and physical activity. All Thirteens possess a great variety of artistic talent. They could turn into entertainers in song and speech or as painters, sculptors, decorators, florists or any form of creative work that calls for a high sense of beauty, colour and form. They are also keen and active in any form of sport. Popularity acquired in sport will be the result of natural talent, physical and mental fitness and youthful enthusiasm rather than a fiercely competitive spirit. Twenty-Eights are likely to spend a disproportionate time on their public or business interests. They do not usually extend themselves into the variety of recreational activity indulged in by a Thirteen, and much more passion is injected into any of their activities. They need to learn relaxation by undertaking hobbies disassociated from their working life. They too can excel in all manner of sport and their success is achieved through willpower and a strong competitive spirit. They are attracted to the professional side of sport and usually undertake administrative or coaching positions when their participating days are over. Emotional reactions to close encounters, as well as more wins and losses are much more evident in the Twenty-Eight. Holiday destinations may be changed from time to time by a Thirteen but a Twenty-Eight may prefer to return to familiar scenes.
The Twenty-Eight will be inclined to measure life in terms of wealth and power and a Thirteen will not be far behind. The combination of their talents will certainly ensure financial success. A Thirteen is likely to recover faster from any financial or career setback whereas a Twenty-Eight, despite willpower and ambition, will take more time because any emotional reactions to a reversal have to be overcome before they re-establish themselves. Although both partners possess a good money and business sense there may be some differences of opinion in regard to disposal of their finances. Both will need freedom to handle a portion of their income without interference or accountability. This should not be difficult to settle as neither will carry this freedom too far. They are not ‘problem gamblers’ or irresponsible spenders nor do they develop habits that generate distrust. Thirteens are, however, likely to exhibit more self-indulgent habits while Twenty-Eights would direct their generosity to family members. Family pride will always be strong in the Twenty-Eight. The heart rules the head in their relationship with family members. Thirteens are able to avoid indulging or spoiling them. While Twenty-Eights may be soft on material gifts they are firm and purposeful in the upbringing of children on practical and moral values. Early retirement is a question that will not be considered by either. They are much too energetic mentally and physically to allow life to stand still or become too sedentary. If a common fear is held by both it will be fear of inactivity.
Both partners are duty-conscious individuals and dependable and resourceful providers. However, there could be a conflict between their duty to domestic responsibilities and duty towards public responsibilities. If they are not watchful more attention may be given to the latter. They may be reluctant to sacrifice business or career opportunities for family welfare or their romantic life. Neither of the two is essentially home oriented. Careers in public life or private business will draw them out of home. Domestic responsibilities will need to be shared equally, and both are capable of undertaking any domestic task quite efficiently. Loyalty is one of their best characteristics. Although emotional expression by the Thirteen will be less this will be the romantic partner whose sentiments are best shown through speech rather than by touch or other physical demonstrations. Twenty-Eights may be less romantic but in a better position to express their sentiments. They could also demonstrate their emotions in negative ways through frustration and anger. In conclusion, it may be said that success in this partnership will depend on adjustment and understanding, as is the case in all other partnerships.
13TH AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS
There is little doubt that temperamental opposites will meet in this combination. More than usual adjustments and re-adjustments of their perspectives will be needed in order to develop a successful relationship. If this cannot be done to a reasonable degree mutual understanding will be required. In their respective realms of thought and activity both personalities are talented and versatile. The distinction between the two is their different levels of thought and action, although both levels are beneficial and productive individually and collectively. If these can be merged to a fair degree and used as reciprocal advantages a Thirteen/Twenty-Nine relationship will be truly enriched in all phases of life. No limits can be placed on the wealth of talent and potential on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms that can be merged into a unified force.
The fundamental difference between these personalities is the Thirteen’s orientation towards material and substantial values and the Twenty-Nine’s towards moral, mental and spiritual values. The Twenty-Nine is certainly not without the desire to enjoy material benefits and comforts but there is a form of non-attachment to material possessions in this personality which separates them from many other personality types. At the same time the Thirteen is not without a high moral code, but their desire to venture into realms beyond mental and physical aspects of life is not nearly as keen as that of the Twenty-Nine. While both individuals are extroverted by nature Thirteens, by comparison, are usually acquisitive and possessive. They get what they desire well before the average seeker. Their go-getting nature is such that they cannot be exploited by others. Twenty-Nines gain more satisfaction in giving than in receiving, and by this means remain open to the law of attraction or the law of compensation. They attract to themselves the good things of life without the same effort put in by a Thirteen. While Thirteens are not ungenerous people their generosity is shown after they have satisfied their own needs, but Twenty-Nines may impulsively place the needs of others before considering their own. These opposite attitudes could counteract the efforts of these partners towards a unified stand. As Twenty-Nines are trustful and often over-generous with their goods and services they could be exploited by untested friends and acquaintances. They can be influenced by evoking their compassionate nature; a practice that could not easily succeed with a shrewd Thirteen. Although it may be contrary to their natural feelings Twenty-Nines should listen to the Thirteen’s words of caution whenever they contemplate a sentimentally motivated action. Promptness to see and do the right thing is an attribute present in both. However, the Thirteen will, in the first instance, see this as a duty to themselves and act accordingly while the Twenty-Nine will not overlook the welfare of others while considering their own. By and large, the vibrations forming the integral personality of the Thirteen are oriented towards personal thinking while those forming the Twenty-Nine are adapted towards impersonal thinking.
Emotionally rich Twenty-Nines with broad perspectives become involved in the lives of others. Consequently, several complications are introduced into their lives with inevitable effects on their partners. Their detachment from material possessions does not extend into detachment from the emotional problems of others. This is a situation that will not sit well with a Thirteen partner. This individual’s attachment to material goods and personal popularity is not extended into implication in the affairs of others. Thirteens will not find the need to extricate themselves from involvement in the problems of friends and acquaintances as a Twenty-Nine will often do. Thirteens are not unhelpful people but they are types who help themselves and consequently believe that others should do so too, although genuine requests for help will never be refused.
A quality unique to the Twenty-Nine is the power of rehabilitation and rejuvenation, and there are always ups and downs in the life of a Twenty-Nine. Their downs may often be self-generated, however, the ability to cope is a natural gift. They are able to let go of the past and enjoy the present and look to the future with freedom and optimism. They do not bear grudges or regret for past misfortunes or past indiscretions. They may, however, suffer some temporary ailments occasioned by emotional turmoil. Thirteens expect a regulated lifestyle and consciously work towards this end, thus creating fewer complications in their lives. They are much more in control of all mundane affairs. Twenty-Nines gain a firm grip on their affairs when they integrate idealism with the realities of practical life. In command of themselves in times of stress Thirteens are able to make instant decisions which should be accepted and relied upon by the Twenty-Nine. But when decisions are not required immediately the Twenty-Nine’s wisdom, intuition and broader horizons should be acknowledged and accepted by the Thirteen.
In most circumstances Thirteens display a natural tendency to take over the decision making role. An intimate relationship will not be an exception. If they expect their Twenty-Nine partner to follow their lead they would soon be disillusioned by the discovery that this personality is a free spirit who will not be willing to adjust to a pattern of life determined by another. While not desiring an authoritative role Twenty-Nines do not fit comfortably into an inferior or secondary position. A difficult adjustment a Thirteen will need to make is acceptance of the Twenty-Nine’s individuality and the need to grant them equal rank in the partnership. They may also have to acknowledge that while they may be more adept in life’s practicalities, Twenty-Nines possess the wisdom and insight to enrich life well beyond material benefits.
The social skills of a Twenty-Nine are more sophisticated and diverse than those of the Thirteen. Social activity is an essential aspect of their lifestyle. A prolonged domestic atmosphere will be oppressive without adequate outlets for social interaction. Deprived of this outlet they become restless and troublesome. With unfeigned consideration for the sensibilities and welfare of others they form many treasured and lasting friendships. Thirteens are much more independent of others in a social sense. Rather than show interest in others they set out to get others interested in them, thereby limiting their popularity even though popularity is very important to these individuals. Twenty-Nines, with their generous nature, judge all persons by their own high standards while Thirteens may be inclined to question the motives of certain others. The Twenty-Nine’s social mobility may exercise a degree of pressure on the Thirteen’s more confined field of social activity. Many Twenty-Nines could be social rebels to some degree. As long as their conduct does not incur suffering or embarrassment to others they do not worry about the opinions of the establishment. At the same time they are not incapable of causing inconvenience, surprise and even indignation but not actual harm by some of their actions. Although Thirteens are modern in all their ideas and innovative in their design their general conduct is usually within social conventions.
Speech can be a potent weapon in both partners. Oral communication between them should be easy as both are gifted with fluency of speech. The Thirteen may not be as talkative as a Twenty-Nine as their need to spread knowledge and to listen to others is not as strong. Subjectivity is also much more evident in the Thirteen’s conversation. Twenty-Nines feel a stronger urge to communicate their thoughts, feelings and experiences as well as lend a sympathetic ear to what others have to say. They are able to relate to the troubles and pleasures of others with willingness and understanding. However Twenty-Nines are also subject to moodiness and the resultant withdrawal into themselves. During these spells they are uncommunicative. Such moods are seldom understood by the emotionally stable Thirteen. While Thirteens are opinionated and often unequivocal Twenty-Nines are much more tolerant and open to discussion. They are able to communicate without arousing hostility or hurt feelings. Their objective views on life help them discuss matters without a residue of bitterness or resentment. They are knowledgeable conversationalists able to enter into a wide range of topics, particularly along cultural, moral, spiritual and humanitarian lines. They are natural teachers, counsellors, orators and leaders of study groups. Many Twenty-Nines do not confine themselves to a particular religion, fraternity, society or mode of spiritual enquiry. They leave themselves free to enquire into all avenues of self-improvement. Thirteens display their expertise in all practical matters. They are always available and generous with their expertise. In normal conversation they are not as tolerant of contradictory opinions nor are they patient listeners to the opinions of others. While Twenty-Nines put in a good deal of emotion into their speech and often resort to digression and ambiguity Thirteens remain clear-cut and accurate in what they say. They cannot be misunderstood due to much attention paid to facts and detail. Twenty-Nines may often offer free advice to people on abstract matters even though it may fall on deaf ears.
Practical knowledge and the search for metaphysical knowledge will distinguish these partners in their choice of leisure activities. Productivity by means of their mental creativity and manual skills will be the principal urge of the Thirteen. They find outlets in public life as well as in their private hobbies in order to release their skills. Self-improvement along ethical, cultural and spiritual lines and the sharing of knowledge acquired through study and experimentation is the natural urge of the Twenty-Nine. Their leisure time will be used in this direction. A harsh and materialistic upbringing may inhibit this in some Twenty-Nines but the potential is never lost. Intuition gives all Twenty-Nines sudden insights without recourse to reasoning, whether they realise it or not. These occasions alert them of the need to enquire into the inner side of things. They also possess diagnostic ability on the physical level which should be recognised and utilised. The down-to-earth and practical mode of life adapted by the Thirteen should complement the spiritual or altruistic life chosen by most Twenty-Nines. This could take place instead of these partners taking separate paths. Twenty-Nines should control a desire to impose their views on a Thirteen when their receptivity is low. Thirteens who do not see the value of the Twenty-Nine’s efforts towards self-knowledge should not show disdain or cynicism, but rather try to remain tolerant and understanding. They could in fact use some of the Twenty-Nine’s practices of meditation and occasional solitude to release tensions built up during their public activities. All manner of sport can be taken up successfully by the Thirteen. Twenty-Nines are not usually competitive people and may not remain long in any form of competitive sport. Travel for educational purposes will be more attractive to them than any other form of outdoor activity.
With one exception Thirteens and Twenty-Nines can reconcile many of their differences amicably. The exception will be management of their financial affairs. Thirteens are cautious spenders, good money managers and responsible investors. They may be generous with their time and knowledge of practical affairs but not so with their money. Many take up accounting, Banking and other financial businesses as a profession. Twenty-Nines are impetuous spenders and careless money managers. Investment for future security does not concern them to the same extent as it does the Thirteen. Thirteens expect full value for money spent while Twenty-Nines do not count the cost. Too often Twenty-Nines buy what they want and not what they can afford. Some may develop addictive spending habits in order to overcome emotional turmoil. Maturity and difficult times may steady some but not change their indifference to good money management. Despite the fact that money goes out as fast as it comes in Twenty-Nines are honourable people who always find the means to pay their debts. Many are over generous and soft hearted; qualities which hardly help their emotionally controlled spending habits. When matched with a Twenty-Nine a Thirteen partner will need to be constantly watchful; a practice they will not need with a less open-handed partner. Thirteens too, enjoy spending, especially on personal luxuries although their spending habits are not emotionally controlled. In most Twenty-Nine’s attachment to worldly goods and power has evolved into aspiration for the finer things of life in the subtle realms. The Thirteen’s down-to-earth values may be slightly influenced by the Twenty-Nine but not diminished in any way.
Loyalty is one force that can create a strong bond between these partners, but this will not be without obstacles created by their different values. Love in the Thirteen personality is concentrated while love in the Twenty-Nine is outspread without in the least being diminished. Many Thirteens may not be prepared to share this extended love Twenty-Nine has. The Twenty-Nine will not allow personal relationships to interfere with loyalty to close friends or devotion to a cause or course of study. While they may understand the Thirteen’s possessiveness they do not tolerate compromise with the Thirteen’s demands for exclusive attention. As mentioned earlier, Thirteens may have to put up with highs and lows in the Twenty-Nine’s moods. During their lows Twenty-Nines get deep within themselves and remain there for some time and then bounce back as if nothing has happened. Despite these vagaries Twenty-Nines are able to talk about their problems when the mood hits them. Thirteens may not always be ready to discuss mutual problems even though they could be influenced to do so by the patience and wisdom of the Twenty-Nine. As self-improvement is essential to a Twenty-Nine they are open to correction and adjustment unlike the Thirteen who is more inclined to view their own behaviour with complacency.
13TH AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 3rd and 13th birthdays. The Zero of the 30th day does not add or take away any features of the 3 vibration. In some instances, however, it may emphasise certain attributes of this vibration.
13TH AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS
The relationship between a person born on the 13th day and another born on the 31st day will be the same as that between a couple where both are born on the 13th. Thirteens and Thirty-Ones are both qualified Four personalities (1+ 3 = 4 and 3 + 1 = 4). It should be noted that the influence of the 3 vibration is slightly stronger in the Thirty-One than in the Thirteen, as it appears first, but this does not make any appreciable difference in their interaction with a Thirteen personality.
The chapter on 13th and 13th birthdays should be consulted.
