22ND AND 22ND BIRTHDAYS
One may expect a couple sharing the same birthday to operate for the most part on the same wavelength and possess many similar aspirations. While certain basic similarities remain in common, a closer examination could reveal many dissimilarities and inconsistencies. In most partnerships two main causes are responsible for these divisions. The first being influences from other areas of the birth date, particularly the birth month and Destiny number. The second is family, cultural, racial and religious backgrounds of each partner. As the latter condition cannot be determined in a general examination of birthdays the former can only be used to assess the degree of compatibility that is likely to exist.
As the Twenty-Two is a master number, all persons born on this day have the potential to extend themselves well beyond average performance in anything they undertake. Those operating on the positive side of this vibration can reach an extraordinary stature in practical, spiritual and humanitarian aspects of life. However, not all born on the 22nd day use the potential offered by this master vibration. Those who do not, operate as Four personalities (2 + 2 = 4). These Fours are invariably stronger and more resourceful either on positive or negative aspects than Fours born on the 4th day. Clearly positive Twenty-Twos are those born on the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. It is the 1 vibration that ensures a positive attitude towards life and the capacity to make maximum use of the features of the master vibration. Such features are usually scattered, diminished or latent in those born in other months. The 1 vibration is needed for strong motivation, willpower, and a clear sense of direction. Twenty-Twos without this vibration in their birth month fall into several divisions in regard to a positive or negative application of natural talent. The most problematic of all Twenty-Twos are those born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months. Over-sensitivity is their problem as they operate for the most part on the emotional plane. Being extremely touchy people they take offence easily and invariably misjudge or misconstrue the speech and actions of others. Many suffer from poor self-esteem and usually adopt defensive measures such as false pride, fault finding, criticism, distrust and an overbearing manner. They are also resistant to even the most polite form of advice. Although sensitive themselves they could be quite insensitive to the feelings of others. Self-absorption being their problem, most negative Twenty-Twos find it difficult to maintain a loving relationship. Hopefully, these Twenty-Twos have other areas of influence that mitigate some of these negative qualities. If not, a relationship with one of these types will be a hazardous undertaking.
A materialistic and self-centred disposition is pronounced in Twenty-Twos born in the 4th month. Their emotions are well disguised. Those born in the 7th month tend towards a spiritual life and a detachment from personal and material gain. Artistic talents reach their highest levels in those born in the 3rd month, while domestic attachment is strongest in Twenty-Twos born in the 6th month. Humanitarian and international perspectives in those born in the 9th month are as strong as those in clearly positive Twenty-Twos, but their self-confidence and emotional control may not be as strong.
At the other end of the spectrum positive Twenty-Twos are self-assured, emotionally controlled and extroverted individuals with extraordinary mental and physical energy. They are easily identified by their global outlook on life, unique ability to combine idealism with practicality and capacity to assume responsibility. There are no limits to a positive Twenty-Two’s choice of vocation and avocation. With this advantage as a birthright they are stable personalities who do not suffer from inhibiting idiosyncrasies which could prevent them from responding to life’s situations with objectivity and confidence. They are high-powered individuals whose partners invariably struggle to maintain the same pace and match their elevated thought processes. The capacity of other Twenty-Twos to remain objective depends on their measure of freedom from sensitivity and self-consciousness. In an intimate relationship some may settle into a secondary role while others resent a positive Twenty-Two’s overpowering influence. This could cause resentment, anger, frustration and a host of other uncooperative reactions. Many could be cold and unresponsive in mental, emotional and physical relations. At the same time, it may be mentioned that all Twenty-Twos, whether positive or negatively inclined, are multi-talented people in all practical aspects of life.
22ND AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS
Persons with these birthdays are not found as conventional types who can be fitted into predictable modes of behaviour. The drift from standard conduct is due not only to the type of the birthday vibrations but also to the significant influence of the qualities of their birth month vibrations. While certain qualities of the birthday vibrations remain unchanged, the ways in which the integral personality functions are altered according to the nature of the birth month. To predetermine the degree of compatibility in a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Three relationship will always remain a hazardous task due to the variety of combinations that could be formed. The degree of success or failure depends entirely on a fortuitous or fateful combination of numbers.
A positive individual is one who enjoys nature’s gifts of self-confidence, self-assertiveness, self-reliance, authority, leadership, decision, ambition, willpower and a clear direction in life. These are instinctive qualities in those blessed by the 1 vibration in their birthdays and, to a slightly lesser degree, in their birth months. It is known as the activator. The presence or absence of this force in the birth month of Twenty-Two and Twenty-Three personalities largely determines their degree of positive or negative attitudes. Those with this number in their birth month can make maximum use of the multitude of talents and variety of personality traits provided by their birthday vibrations. Those without this vibration manifest their qualities in many uncertain and desultory ways. Negative conditions are lessened with a Destiny number 1. It provides a strong pull towards positive thought and action, and individuals who consciously use this force can succeed in their efforts towards a positive way of life. The 1 vibration may also be present in the letters of their full name. The letters A, J and S convert to this number. If four or more are present, the individual is gifted with many attributes of this vibratory force. Problems that could arise in a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Three combination are also caused by the firm individuality of these personalities. Whatever their condition, they are not likely to agree to subordinate roles or submerge much of their individuality in an intimate relationship.
People born on the 22nd day fall into three general classifications. Clearly positive Twenty-Twos are those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. These individuals possess the potential to live up to the elevated heights of the master number of their birthday. This is a comprehensive force which provides the opportunity for a lifestyle that could be superior in every level of activity. Entry into physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms is present in equal proportion. A ‘full-blown’ Twenty-Two emerges as an outstanding individual on a national and international level. Those who do not make use of the full power of their master vibration revert to the energy of a powerful Four personality with occasional flashes of their master vibration (2 + 2 = 4). These ‘power plus’ personalities are not easy partners to cope with. Their busy and far-reaching activities are not always conducive to a quiet domestic lifestyle.
Twenty-Twos not endowed with the power of the 1 vibration fall into various types determined by the nature of their birth month. They are all multi-talented people but, unlike their positive counterparts, there is a lessening of self-confidence and self-esteem which effect the degree in which they extend themselves and the ways in which they relate to others. Twenty-Twos born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months, and some in the 9th month, may suffer from negative or self-destructive traits caused by an excess of sensitivity, emotionalism and self-consciousness. Their emotions and negative imagination takes precedence over rational or realistic thought. They are, consequently, difficult people to deal with as they invariably misunderstand, misinterpret, suspect and distrust the speech and actions of others. Defensive and hostile measures are adopted to safeguard their insecurities that also usually result in loss of friendships and lonely lives. These are the most risky partners one could have an intimate or business relationship with. Twenty-Twos born in the 4th month are physically-oriented people whose emotions are locked in. They could be dogmatic, manipulative and possessive. Spirituality, reserve, study and investigation are strongest features in those born in the 7th month. Extroverted and socially-oriented Twenty-Twos are those born in the 3rd month while the 6th month moulds domesticated and community-oriented personalities. Finally, the 9th month creates Twenty-Twos who are a mixture of emotion, self-consciousness, imagination, spirituality and compassion. They are also broadminded individuals with depth of wisdom, intuition and strong humanitarian tendencies. These Twenty-Twos need to cultivate more self-esteem because their multiple talents and personal qualities outweigh by far the opinion they hold of themselves.
Twenty-Threes fall into two broad categories in regard to positive or negative application of their many-sided personality. The 2, 3 and 5 vibrations are all of a youthful nature. Their prime motives and needs in life are freedom, adventure, experiment, self-expression, change, and conviviality. The need to harness their personality traits and talents and direct them along constructive lines is an ongoing responsibility. Those with the 1 vibration in their birth month usually succeed in diverting their lives along constructive lines. The 4 and 7 also help stabilise their thoughts and actions. Others may be inclined to scatter their talents and indulge in change solely for change’s sake. Twenty-Threes of whatever type cannot be held down to timetables, routine or monotonous work. They are natural artists with a powerful imagination, alertness, and quick reflexes enriched by a keen sense of beauty, colour and romance. They cannot be bound or conditioned by social conventions or the opinions of others. Their primary thoughts are centred on personal desires. At the same time, they are generous, friendly and extroverted individuals. Positive Twenty-Threes radiate an aura of good humour, optimism, sociability, and approachability. Those who are negatively inclined may reveal unreliable qualities of inconsistency, unpredictability, frivolity, lack of punctuality and a shifting of values and activities.
There are too many inconsistencies in a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Three relationship to promote a harmonious domestic situation. With the possible exception of those born in the 2nd, 4th or 6th month, Twenty-Twos will be too involved in public life to be able to pay adequate attention to domestic responsibilities. Those Twenty-Twos who look for cooperation from Twenty-Three partners are likely to meet with disappointment. Twenty-Threes are too restless to cope with the duties of a well regulated home. They may not shirk their responsibilities, but their contributions are likely to be irregular or inconsistent. Whatever they do will be done well when they set their minds to a task, but they cannot be expected to adhere to duties on a regular basis.
The extent of social activity engaged in by Twenty-Twos depends on the nature of a particular Twenty-Two. These persons could vary from extroverted individuals with keen humanitarian and altruistic motives to those affected by pride, aloofness, and self-interest. Positive and near positive Twenty-Twos are at ease within themselves. When necessary they are able to put aside subjective thoughts and direct their attention to impersonal social service. They do not seek company, nor do they avoid company. Their motives will be to make some form of practical contribution to the welfare of society on as wide a scale as possible. Having the potential to develop into big time functionaries, many Twenty-Twos are found in control of national or international organisations. Though busy at all times, they are always accessible to people in need. Those Twenty-Twos who are negatively inclined deprive society of much of their natural talent as they tend to isolate themselves due to various inhibitions from which they suffer. Placed in circumstances that do not create excessive turmoil within themselves and conflict with others, their contributions to society could be quite considerable.
All Twenty-Threes are attracted to a wide range of social activity. They are open personalities, alert, vibrant and enthusiastic. They can hardly be outdone in situations that call for instant action or quick verbal response. Unlike the Twenty-Two, they need to be socially involved in order to feel fulfilled. At the same time their dependence on social life is not of a submissive or subservient nature. On the contrary, most Twenty-Threes assume a central role in any social gathering. They can manipulate people and conditions to suit themselves. Natural flexibility also enables them to adopt different roles in different situations. They are not without the desire for admiration and recognition. These reciprocations are, however, acquired without much effort. There are some Twenty-Threes who acquire an unenviable reputation as frivolous, unreliable and untrustworthy people to be avoided whenever possible. They are takers rather than givers who use others for their own ends. To these people the world exists to be exploited and enjoyed. Any contribution they may make towards society is likely to contain an ulterior motive. Twenty-Two and Twenty-Three partners, in general, may choose different associates and different activities. One will be centralised and largely exclusive and the other changeable and inclusive.
Thought processes of all Twenty-Twos are usually along constructive lines and reflected initially in oral expression. They give out their ideas and plans in clear and unambiguous speech. Action is preferred to talk, but when they do speak out, respectful attention is given to their words. The Twenty-Three’s thoughts, on the other hand, are highly imaginative, prolific, romantic, changeable and uninhibited. They are gifted with several outlets for fluid expression of their abundant thoughts. A rush of thought followed by a rush of speech and a colourful choice of words are not uncommon. All Twenty-Threes are consummate conversationalists with a lively touch of good humour and expressive body language. They capture the attention of an audience with ease and uplift the atmosphere of any gathering. Personal affairs are seldom left out of their conversation. While Twenty-Twos can remain impersonal and concentrate on one or perhaps two subjects at any given time, Twenty-Threes may flit between several topics without an in-depth examination of any one. Yet they speak with conviction and authority. Twenty-Twos do not like to be interrupted when they speak but Twenty-Threes can be interrupted even though they may not necessarily pay attention or respond to any interruption. It is not easy to break into their flow of speech. A Twenty-Two partner will seldom bother to enter into a verbal contest with a Twenty-Three knowing their power and flexibility with words and their evasive methods of attack and defence. It is never easy to have them admit to an error or omission.
All Twenty-Twos are instinctive builders. On the physical level they are master masons, architects, construction engineers, sculptors and inventors. On an executive level there are no limits to the degree they can create, control and expand corporations, political parties, clubs, religious sects and businesses. In their scheme of things, positive Twenty-Twos believe that the world exists to be expanded and enriched, and that their destiny is to contribute towards such advancement. Negative Twenty-Twos believe that personal power and private enrichment is their destiny. Most Twenty-Twos are likely to link their destiny with their recreational activities. They are not tempted to move into something new before completing a job at hand. This is a temptation which many Twenty-Threes find hard to resist. The conversational habits of these partners are reflected in the work they do. While Twenty-Twos may undertake one or at the most two tasks at any time Twenty-Threes may engage in several projects which take up their divided attention. As only a limited amount of time will be found for each, many delayed or incomplete jobs are likely to be found in their wake. New projects are entered into with zest; however, initial enthusiasm is seldom sustained. Always on the lookout for new challenges many Twenty-Threes who are negatively inclined do not have any definite ideas of what they want out of life. They are happiest when on the move, making acquaintance with new places and persons. The excitement of travel will be a favourite pastime for all Twenty-Threes. Twenty-Twos travel mainly for educational purposes and in the execution of their duties as administrators, lecturers or as performing artists.
Money management is another aspect of life in which wide differences exist between these personalities. All Twenty-Twos are responsible money managers. Those with positive natures show a detachment from money for its own sake. It is used by them as a means to an end and not as an end in itself or as a source of power. Their spending habits are liberal but not irresponsible. They spend on themselves and on others with equal generosity. A negative Twenty-Two’s interest in money is likely to be acquisitive and possessive. Power will be associated with the accumulation of wealth. Their spending habits could range from reasonable caution to outright meanness. They spend more on themselves than on their partners and dependants. Twenty-Threes are free spenders with little interest in saving or seeking for bargains. Their capacity to earn money is considerable, but so is their capacity to spend it. Many could be attracted to various forms of gambling or speculative ventures which would greatly disturb the peace of mind of a Twenty-Two partner.
A relationship between a Twenty-Two of any type is seldom smooth or conventional due to the high-powered frequencies of the master vibration. They are usually a step or two ahead of their partners in most aspects of life. A relationship with a Twenty-Three, in particular, will be fraught with complications due to the Twenty-Three’s many-sided, changeable and often volatile nature. Both partners need to prepare themselves to expect the unexpected. Due to the variety of combinations that could be formed with these birthdays, the extent to which partners can agree to cope with each other’s needs, foibles and habits cannot be predicted. Self-sacrifice, compliance, cooperation and compromise are not prominent features in either the Twenty-Two or Twenty-Three. Each would rather follow their own inclinations and conduct their lives on their own terms than abide by expectations of their partners.
22ND AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS
It would not be optimistic to expect affinities to exceed differences in partners with even numbered birthdays, such as the above. This would be reasonable with most such combinations, but not necessarily or automatically in combinations which include the 22nd day. As the number 22 symbolises a master vibration, the energy and drive within a Twenty-Two personality is more forceful than in other individuals. However, the degree in which their potential is manifested is not always the same in all Twenty-Twos. It may be exhibited in positive or negative ways, or, as in the majority of Twenty-Twos, with a mixture of positive and negative aspects. Twenty-Twos who are most assuredly positive individuals are those born with the number 1 in their birth months. Others fall into various categories in regard to positive or negative application of their talents and personality traits. More often than not it is their temperament that is affected by the absence of the 1 vibration rather than their natural skills. It often happens that the range in which their skills could be applied is limited by certain negative personality traits. For instance, those Twenty-Twos born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months and to some degree the 9th month are excessively sensitive, self-conscious and emotionally-oriented people. As a result, they suffer from all sorts of problems associated with these conditions. They are among the most difficult people to associate with as their thoughts, actions and reactions are almost entirely subjective and unpredictable. An objective appraisal of persons and situations is usually beyond their capacity as they see their own uncertainties, insecurities and suspicions in others and succumb to misinterpretation, misunderstanding and distrust. Most incidents in life are handled from a defensive position. Practical talents are foremost in those born in the 4th and 7th months. These Twenty-Twos perform as outstanding Four personalities (2 + 2 = 4). The chapter on 4th and 22nd birthdays should be of interest. All Twenty-Twos born in the 3rd, 6th and 9th months are mentally-oriented, although their mental aptitudes are applied in different ways. The 3rd month produces the creative and performing artist as well as the architect and mathematician. They excel in any profession demanding a high sense of beauty, accuracy, form and design. The 6th month creates the teacher, counsellor, doctor, nurse, chef and homemaker. Any business dealing with books, household produces, food and accommodation attracts these Twenty-Twos. The 9th month creates the internationalist with the capacity to extend far beyond conventional living. An increase in self-confidence is all they need.
The main difference between Twenty-Twos with the 1 vibration in their birth months and others is that the latter do not possess the same degree of self-confidence and self-esteem. Consequently, their capacity to use the full potential of the master vibration is reduced. Almost all Twenty-Twos experience difficulty with self-definition because they find themselves caught between their physical nature and their spiritual nature. Reconciliation of these aspects of life may take some time. Positive individuals achieve this enviable state sooner than others.
Twenty-Twos born in the 4th, 6th and 7th months present the best chances of success in a relationship with Twenty-Four partners. The Twenty-Four is an evenly balanced individual (2 + 4 = 6). The 2, 4 and 6 vibrations forming their integral personality mingle harmoniously to create a stable personality structure. The absence of discordant elements or forces that pull them into contrary directions is their greatest strength. At the same time, many of their best qualities could also give rise to certain drawbacks in meeting life’s challenges. To start with, most Twenty-Fours are non-competitive, non-aggressive and non-assertive people who do not seek to impose their will on others. On rare occasions, however, aggression and assertiveness will be shown in no uncertain terms when they are driven into a corner by arbitrary measures. Their form of leadership is usually by good example. Their policy is to live and let live in a cooperative, reciprocal, peaceful and helpful atmosphere. Their peace of mind is disturbed and feelings deeply hurt when faced with opposite features of rivalry, hostility, noise, speed and selfishness. Twenty-Fours are multi-talented people with aptitudes running into the physical, emotional and mental realms. As in the case of the Twenty-Two, the 1 vibration plays a significant role in establishing the degree of confidence in their abilities. Those Twenty-Fours with this vibration in their birth months make greater use of their talents and personality traits than others. All Twenty-Fours are among the most domesticated of all personality types. Though home and family take precedence over other aspects of life these are also people who can succeed in a dual role of breadwinner and homemaker. All Twenty-Fours are attracted to the helping professions such as teaching and the medical profession, as well as businesses dealing with stationery, food, accommodation and household products. A family business between certain Twenty-Two partners and any Twenty-Four partner is bound to succeed.
The Twenty-Four is instinctively aware that success in public life is in no way worthwhile if it results in failure in the domestic scene. A strict balance will be maintained between public and domestic responsibilities. There is little doubt that this partner will willingly undertake a larger share of domestic tasks. While functioning as a homemaker or in the dual role of breadwinner and homemaker they may show resistance only when they are pushed or rushed into doing things faster than their natural pace or beyond certain boundaries they set for themselves. This is a condition that they may face with Twenty-Two partners. While Twenty-Fours are generally easygoing people who insist on an orderly lifestyle they seldom act out of character. Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, act with speed, enthusiasm, intensity and enterprise on a much wider scale of activity. These differences in style should be regarded as complementary features rather than those that may be destructive. These are partners with the capacity to arrive at an understanding of each other’s temperaments. The advantage they have is the bonding nature of even numbers as opposed to the competitive qualities of odd numbers.
The broader perspectives of the Twenty-Two and the conventional ways of the Twenty-Four will also be reflected in their choice of friends, acquaintances and social activities. With the exception of Twenty-Twos with negative temperaments the social life of all others will be inclusive, adventuresome and progressive. There is a marked absence of uneasiness, timidity, insecurity and prejudice in their interaction with people of different races, cultures and religions. Many negative Twenty-Twos may, however, display opposite tendencies. Prejudice and exclusiveness will be their main social problems. While most Twenty-Twos play prominent roles in society, Twenty-Fours for the most part, perform as observers or workers behind the scenes. They project an aura of quiet confidence rather than an extroverted need to emphasise their presence. Though not strictly exclusive in their choice of company Twenty-Fours enjoy a regulated social life. They prefer to remain within a familiar group of old and trusted friends and relations than venture into new associations. Unlike the Twenty-Two, they need the security of knowing their place in society. They are also desirable and popular neighbours who respect privacy and are also available in times of need. While Twenty-Twos establish their place in society by direct measures Twenty-Fours merge unobtrusively into social gatherings. Despite their different approaches these partners can enjoy a productive and enjoyable social life. Both earn a reputation as consummate hosts and hostesses. Though many of their social skills are interchangeable Twenty-Twos are likely to take over conversation and general entertainment of guests while Twenty-Fours take charge of food and drink. Twenty-Fours, especially, will be renowned for their culinary expertise. There is also a comfortable simplicity about the Twenty-Four which creates a fatherly or motherly atmosphere about them. People with personal problems do not hesitate to approach them for advice and comfort. While Twenty-Twos are equally capable of helping others in need, people with timid temperaments find them somewhat awe-inspiring and may hesitate to approach them. On the other hand, while Twenty-Fours are content to let others approach them, Twenty-Twos take the initiative to reach out to others.
Both partners are good conversationalists. They are able to switch their topics from practical everyday matters to issues and principles relating to cultural and humanitarian subjects. Both give out their opinions from a background of idealistic thought and practical experience. They are also aware that the best way of getting to know people is by listening to them. Twenty-Fours, especially, are patient and understanding listeners. Despite their conversational skills both partners prefer to be doing something productive or constructive than spending time in prolonged conversation. These are partners who should not experience much difficulty remaining on the same wavelength on most aspects of life. Twenty-Twos may on occasions reach further into metaphysical and mystical realms whereas Twenty Fours will not be attracted by these interests.
Recreational time will be spent by these partners in a wide range of activity. As community-conscious individuals they are certain to provide their multiple talents as honorary secretaries, treasurers, or administrators. By serving in any of these capacities their own lives are fulfilled. Their motives will be twofold. One, by adding things that are worthwhile to individuals and groups, and the other, by removing from the lives of others handicaps or obstacles that prevent them from enjoying things that are worthwhile – unselfish social service, in other words. Creative thought processes natural to both are not confined to theory or blueprints alone but proficiently followed up into execution. Twenty-Twos may spend more time on national projects due to their energy and horizons being more extensive. Less time will be spent on such projects by the Twenty-Four as their first priority will always be domestic responsibilities. More home-based hobbies such as cooking, house repairs, maintenance and gardening, especially fruit and vegetables, is likely to be the special preserve of the Twenty-Four. A well equipped workshop or kitchen will be maintained by all Twenty-Fours with the cooperation of their Twenty-Two partners. Twenty-Twos are equally handy with their hands, but finding sufficient time for work around the house will always be their problem. There is also a greater need in the Twenty-Two to make contact with deeper levels of their personality. Merging their physical nature with their spiritual nature is a challenge taken up by most Twenty-Twos. There is a mystical appreciation of nature in the Twenty-Two which extends beyond interest in mundane affairs. While Twenty-Twos are fond of travel and are able to adapt to a variety of living conditions, Twenty-Fours are generally home-based with a strong preference for familiar scenes. Twenty-Two partners should not be surprised if they reject hasty suggestions or a variation of routine. They would rather spend their holidays in familiar spots rather than experiment with different locations.
While all Twenty-Twos are trustworthy money managers they may be divided into broad categories in the way they regard money and its purpose. Positive and near positive Twenty-Twos possess a healthy attitude towards money. They are generous but responsible spenders. Money is not allowed to become the central factor in their lives. They are able to maintain a fair degree of separation between money, material possessions and attention to their moral and spiritual nature. Negative Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, too often allow their material needs to override other aspects of life. In varying degrees these individuals will be found to be possessive, frugal and demanding. Twenty-Fours are among the best money managers. They may, however, suffer from a certain degree of anxiety about their financial situation even though it may be quite stable. A high premium is placed on financial security and no risks will be taken with their savings and investments. Debts will never exceed assets. They are usually cash buyers, always on the lookout for bargains. Spending on personal luxuries may be restricted, although not on good food and other domestic comforts. The Twenty-Four is most likely to take charge of the family budget while the Twenty-Two contributes expertise on larger issues.
As mentioned earlier, the chief need of the Twenty-Two is a broad-based lifestyle. Twenty-Fours will not be keen on keeping up with their wide horizons and large scale ambitions. Their dominant feature is a carefully balanced, conforming and conventional lifestyle. These differences, however, need not be stumbling blocks in their efforts towards a happy and loving relationship. Enterprise and adventure introduced into the life of the Twenty-Four will be an advantage while the Twenty-Four’s rationality and stability will be a good measure of control over any outlandish schemes suggested by the Twenty-Two. By each partner accepting their dominant traits they can relate to each other better than when each presumes the other will react to situations in the same manner as they do themselves.
22ND AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS
The task of defining the proportion of certainties and uncertainties that arise in a relationship between Twenty-Two and Twenty-Five partners is not one that is straightforward. Both are complex personality types who do not integrate easily into a compatible state of love, joy and contentment. However, the potential to do so cannot be denied. The problem presented is the variety of personality types formed by these birthdays, and consequently the variety of combinations that can be put together. The prospect of a profound and sincere relationship in which similarities and complementary features outnumber any that could be disagreeable and discordant will be revealed by a close examination of certain combinations. At the same time, there are others that forebode opposite features of disagreeability, disharmony and discord. There are also a majority of combinations that will be midway between these alternatives.
All Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives are individualists with considerable depth of personality, breadth of vision and unrestricted entry into physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms. As with all personality types the degree in which they do so will be determined by certain influential factors. The principal ones are, firstly, the vibration or vibrations of their birth months. Secondly, is the upbringing of each partner. The combination of these factors will determine the degree of positive or negative application of their natural characteristics and talents. Given an advantageous background all those with the 1 vibration in their birth months are naturally positive in their outlook on life. Their actions and reactions are progressive, optimistic, assertive, confident, influential, enterprising and wide-ranging. A Twenty-Two/Twenty-Five relationship, in which both partners fall into this category, will be a union between two exceptionally versatile and multi-talented individuals. The immediate task to be undertaken when a pair of strong personalities combines will be the perception, acknowledgement and consolidation of each other’s personality traits and talents. Temptation towards competition, rivalry and egotism has to be overcome. There is also a tendency to act as individuals and overlook mutual obligations. Two such independent individuals who do not overcome these propensities can easily fall into opposite directions. Twenty-Two and Twenty-Five partners possess the capacity to overcome these initial pitfalls. The vibratory forces forming their integral personalities have moved from a limited sense of ‘I’ and ‘My’ into wider perspectives of ‘We’, ‘Us’ and ‘They’. In other words, ego has been refined and chastened, but by no means subdued. It emerges in dynamic, inspirational, constructive and goal-oriented ways. Characteristics that have been subdued are selfishness, dictatorship and the need to flaunt or advertise themselves. With a passion for life both personalities extract much more out of their experiences than most people. Using natural wisdom and understanding, decisions can be made mutually, and experiences shared without loss of equality. One is not likely to restrict the movements and needs of the other. They would not succeed if by chance they attempt to do so. The quality of their family life will be in direct proportion to quality time they spend at home. Both need to take special care that public responsibilities and personal hobbies, which may be many, do not erode family togetherness.
Problems arise when one or both suffer from varying degrees of negativity. Irrespective of family and social conditioning the degree in which negativity exists is largely determined by the vibrations of the birth month. Many negative conditions are found in those Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months. As their birthday vibrations already provide free entry into the emotional plane, further openings from the birth month only serve to create an excess of emotionalism and sensitivity. It also creates unreliable and intermittent psychic revelations. Excessive self-consciousness and subjective attitudes take precedence over objectivity and reasoning, as a consequence of this imbalance. Generally uncertain about themselves they can be deeply hurt by real or imagined slights. A defensive attitude to life is adopted. Many may fear superiority or expertise in others and actively seek to diminish it by various unfair methods so that they could be at ease with their own feelings of insecurity. This will especially be the case with a negative Twenty-Two. They are difficult and risky people to live with as they project their inadequacies and suspicions onto others and read them accordingly. Though their interaction with people will remain an ever present problem their natural talents in other areas of life are not usually diminished. They may not work successfully with others, although by working independently, they could be resourceful and productive individuals.
Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives born in other months possess more balance within their personalities. All they need is a boost of self-confidence from time to time. The 4th and 7th months promote extensive manual skills while the 3rd, 6th and 9th months create a balance between mental, emotional and physical realms. Spirituality is a strong force in all Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives. The degree to which it is evoked and the way it is practised will once again depend on family and cultural background. These are individuals who are not likely to go overboard in social activity. One of their advantageous assets being self-sufficiency, they do not depend on frequent interaction with people in order to feel fulfilled They do not seek central positions, nor do they remain inconspicuous in company. Their impact on a particular social gathering depends on the type of individuals forming it. Neither partner is affected by introverted or extroverted characteristics. Both are short-term participants in social life. Rather than spend time with people in non-productive communication they choose to spend time in study or doing something constructive. They possess the knack of keeping people at a distance. This is not a difficult task for them, as people observe an atmosphere of reserve, distance and inscrutability which prevents them from an over familiar approach. The influence of the 7 vibration in the Twenty-Five is responsible for this (2 + 5 = 7). As in all other activities both maintain a high level of awareness and enthusiasm, and consequently, provide as well as obtain a maximum degree of pleasure from their chosen social engagements. Depth of intuition and the gift of second sight, which may at times manifest involuntarily, help them chose the best companions.
The Twenty-Two and Twenty-Five are also individuals who are not stubbornly attached to their convictions. Within reason they will be prepared to listen to each other’s points of view and the beliefs and opinions of others. Negative Twenty-Twos are an exception. Fixed in their views they could be intolerant and disinterested in the views of others. Average Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives are interesting and informative conversationalists. They may often touch on issues beyond the general knowledge and comprehension of individuals who are not on the same wavelength. They avoid frivolous and controversial topics because they cannot patiently endure talk they regard as a waste of time. Found in circumstances from which they cannot escape they will be content to remain silent. When they do speak out they hold the attention of their audience with unmistakable sincerity and knowledge of their subjects. Intellectual rapport between these partners enables them to freely discuss mundane issues, esoteric matters as well as personal problems. Periods of silence during which they keep in touch with their inner being will be observed by both.
The tendency to brush aside anything they do not initially agree with or understand is not part of their nature. On the contrary, they set out to improve their natural gifts through endless observation, discussion and study. Both possess a strong sense of the past, present and future and a resultant urge to probe into physical and metaphysical planes. They may resort to contemplation and dreams but also use their practical skills to realise their dreams. Evidence of this twofold gift will be seen not only in their careers in public life but also in their choice of leisure activity. A calling to help others in voluntary service is another area in which these partners can work together as an effective team. Their constant complaint about life will be the lack of time to fit in all the things they wish to do. They are nature lovers and travellers. Many common interests will be the greatest asset in this relationship. One partner is not likely to take up a hobby that has little or no attraction to the other. They may participate in different sports or physical fitness exercises, although mutual support and interest will be maintained. Their tendency to make ‘on the spot’ decisions may not find favour with others. They are likely to discover that travelling by themselves is much better than travelling in the company of others, as many may not act and react as speedily as they do. As energetic and enterprising people these partners are likely to be involved in supplementary sources of income. Both display a responsible attitude towards money and its uses. At the same time, they do not allow preoccupation with money to obscure other aspects of their lives. Businesslike, yet fair in their dealings, human dignity is placed before a disproportionate desire for accumulation of wealth and power. Certain negative Twenty-Twos could once again be an exception, obsession with money, power and material possession could override other considerations.
Resisting change and refusing reasonable personality adjustments do not work in favour of successful relationships. This condition will not assume major proportions in a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Five relationship. Some Twenty-Twos, however, may offer a degree of resistance initially, but this will be overcome when they use their own breadth of vision and realise the depth and magnanimity of the Twenty-Five’s nature. Inflated egos are rare in these partners. However, in the exceptional event of one having high ideas about themselves the penetrating insight of the other will sooner or later cut them down to size. Love and fidelity do not flourish unless partners give themselves reasonable space and freedom. Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Fives are types that automatically respect each other’s individuality and grant each other the right to exercise the power of choice. A fine balance between togetherness and personal freedom can be formed with a minimum of effort.
22ND AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS
Twenty-Two and Twenty-Six relationships are governed by receptive forces. The principle of like attracting like will be responsible for mutual attraction between these personalities. Receptive forces common to both will also be responsible for a shorter time spent getting to know each other than they would have if both were motivated by active vibrations. The non-competitive nature of receptive forces works towards collaboration, cooperation, and harmony instead of individualism and rivalry. They are not grasping or demanding and are endowed with qualities of resilience, adaptability, diplomacy, dedication, endurance and service. The essential nature of individuals controlled by these vibrations is to wait on, work for, help, care, support and teach. In doing so they are not only fulfilled personally, but also invariably attract to themselves all the good things of life. In other words, the law of attraction and compensation works automatically in their favour. Twenty-Two and Twenty-Six personalities belong to this class of individual. They may not be similar in expressing their personality traits and talents but sooner or later they discover that corresponding qualities outnumber differences. Certain personality adjustments are inevitable in an intimate relationship, but governed by love and loyalty on the one hand, and practical skills on the other, these partners are bound to form a compatible relationship.
There are exceptions to this desirable condition which could be created by certain Twenty-Two partners. Although motivated by a master vibration, Twenty-Twos born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months are infused by an excess of emotionalism, sensitivity and self-consciousness. The overloading of attributes of the emotional plane is responsible for certain flaws in their personality which hinder normal or healthy interaction with people. A powerful negative imagination projects base or bad intentions onto others which do not exist in reality. This tendency to misjudge or rashly judge others and a refusal to listen to reason make them undesirable and difficult partners.
The potential to make use of the extraordinary qualities of the master vibration is present in all other Twenty-Twos. Talents acquired from the master vibration are too varied and numerous to enumerate. Basically, Twenty-Twos are a unique combination of mental creativity and physical creativity. They are builders who operate on an extended scale, not only as inventors, construction engineers, manufacturers, architects and developers, but also as organisers, administrators and governors. Not all Twenty-Twos reach these extraordinary heights due to cultural, economic or other handicaps, although of a certainty, most find ways to achieve above average success in life by using their creative imagination and manual dexterity. Those Twenty-Twos with the 1 vibration in their birth months have the best chances for high achievement. They possess a larger measure of self-confidence than others. A boost of self-confidence is needed from time to time with those born in other months. A characteristic shared by most Twenty-Twos is a global outlook on life, with strong humanitarian tendencies. They are genuine internationalists who progress through life with the conviction in the brotherhood/sisterhood of human kind. They are also practical visionaries with the desire to contribute something beneficial and lasting on as wide a scale as possible.
The Twenty-Six is basically an Eight personality (2 + 6 = 8). Despite the receptive nature of the 2, 6 and 8 vibrations that form their integral personality a harmonious integration may not always be present. There are corresponding and complementary features as well as conflicting forces. Their 2 aspect provides easy access to the emotional plane, although an excess of sensitivity and sentimentality is prevented by the reasoning powers of the mentally-oriented 6 vibration. At the same time, the 2 checks the 6’s tendency towards excessive objective analysis of all things. The ability to see many sides of an issue and arrive at just conclusions is the result of the interaction of the three vibrations in the Twenty-Six, and their decisions are not made speedily. Hesitancy, indecision and delay will be their first reactions. However, when they fall back on their basic 8 nature they can summon the spirit to act effectively and decisively. Love of home and family are the most prominent features of their personality structure. If not held in control, Twenty-Six partners could be quite possessive. Family pride and commitment to family welfare are a high priority. The 8 vibration is the only receptive force that contains strong competitive qualities. Many Twenty-Six partners may suffer from internal conflict between the non-competitive nature of their outer personality and the ambitious and competitive nature of their inner personality.
The pull towards domesticity by their 2 and 6 aspects, on the one hand, and the pull towards goal oriented public activity on the other, will be a problem faced by most Twenty-Sixes.
With the exception of certain negative Twenty-Twos, all others do not hesitate to reach out to people, whether in small groups or large numbers. They are socially emancipated, fashionable and innovative in dress and general conduct. Free from social prejudice they interact spontaneously in all levels of society. Their enterprising nature opens out opportunities for their Twenty-Six partners who may not be as adventurous. Twenty-Sixes are somewhat conservative in their social conduct and choice of company. They are not as ready and willing to make overtures towards acquaintance with strangers. Though selective of company they are able to move comfortably between all age groups. Each of these partners in their own way gain popularity by making themselves needed and useful in society.
A disposition and accompanying skills towards organisation and system on a cooperative basis is stronger in both than the urge for independent activity or outright leadership. A partnership of equals should be a natural outcome. It is possible that the Twenty-Six may voluntarily undertake more domestic responsibilities because care of home and family is closer to their hearts than ambition for high achievement in public life. Although they are quite capable of performing the dual role of breadwinner and homemaker they would not allow a career or business to override family welfare. Their adjustable and adaptable nature can release a Twenty-Two partner from many mundane duties so that the Twenty-Two is free to concentrate on goal-oriented ambitions. The difference here is that Twenty-Twos should not place limits on their ambitions while Twenty-Sixes should and usually do apply a balance between public and domestic life. The Twenty-Two is by no means uncaring of home and family. What they look for is a supportive partner so that they could succeed as the principal provider. Without such support they may struggle to balance family responsibilities with public duties.
The potential to develop into outstanding public speakers is present in all Twenty-Twos. In well trained individuals there is no limit to the range and effect made by their authoritative, dynamic and stimulating voices. On a personal level their speech can be subdued, mellow and confidential. They may not always be available for intimate communication due to the busy lives they lead. But on the occasions they are approached by their partners or others in need of help, a fund of sympathy, understanding and useful advice will be forthcoming, The Twenty-Six, on the other hand, excels in person to person communication. The potential to develop into effective public speakers is also present; however, their range of subjects will be less than that of the Twenty-Two. The Twenty-Six is a natural teacher, instructor, demonstrator and guide. In the privacy of their homes Twenty-Two and Twenty-Six partners are considerate and tactful, avoiding provocative speech, raised voices and assertive or aggressive body language. Disagreements will be few due to both possessing attributes of commonsense, practicality and rationality. In addition, neither partner will be swayed by an excess of emotion in their decisions and judgments or controlled by assertive egos. Although sentiment is not lacking, rationality and impartiality will override prejudice and bias. However, it will be seen that application of these modes of thought will be easier in public life than in family affairs. Blind spots may appear in both in their dealings with their dependants. The amount of emotion and sensitivity they release will have a considerable influence on family life. Twenty-Twos born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months are usually vulnerable and often unstable at an emotional level. They are invariably difficult partners due to self-generated problems created by a negative imagination. They are always on the defensive due to their touchy and suspicious nature.
Twenty-Two and Twenty-Six partners are not likely to take different directions during recreational activity. The domestic scene will benefit from the manual skills of the Twenty-Two and the Twenty-Six’s penchant for maintaining neat and clean living conditions. Cooking will be a pastime taken up by both but the Twenty-Six is likely to remain a more enthusiastic cook. As popular hosts and hostesses the Twenty-Two usually takes over entertainment of guests while the Twenty-Six takes charge of food and drink. These roles can easily be interchanged when necessary. As the Twenty Six is essentially a home-based individual and the Twenty-Two places no restrictions of movement, they are not likely to share the same desire for travel and extended holidays. Whether on local social calls or on holidays away from home the Twenty-Six invariably experiences a strong pull towards home after some time. Twenty-Two partners will need to accept the fact that their partners are short-term visitors and holiday-makers. Twenty-Sixes are indifferent travellers unless they do so in mobile homes. Twenty-Twos enjoy all the benefits of travel and holidays. Their journeys are made as interesting as their destinations. Following a major feature of their master vibration most Twenty-Twos take time to explore their spiritual nature. They are gifted with the ability to combine practicality and spirituality. Twenty-Sixes are by no means unconscious of their spiritual nature. Their disposition is to display moral and ethical values in speech and action rather than research and investigation into metaphysical aspects of life. While Twenty-Twos are, among other things, builders in all areas of life, Twenty-Sixes, among other things, are endowed with exceptional talent and desire to make healing and teaching their life work. As both partners possess the same high moral standards they can combine effectively in social service.
Responsible money management is a skill present in both partners. As more time will be spent by the Twenty-Six in domestic duties the chances are that this partner will take over day-to-day money management. Liabilities will not exceed assets or expenditure exceed income, and money is safe in their hands. A certain amount will always be put aside for future needs. They are discriminating buyers who look for quality and durability in the goods they purchase. Using patience rather than impulse they spend time looking for the best bargains. They cannot be influenced by high pressure sales tactics. They may listen but not be persuaded to buy if they are not entirely convinced. Twenty-Twos possess almost the same attributes but find less time to attend to money matters. Aware of the Twenty-Six’s competence in this area they may willingly entrust money matters to this partner, while reserving the right to have their say in all major purchases and investments. The reverse situation in which the Twenty-Two takes over most money matters is also possible, although less desirable.
The Twenty-Two’s degree of attention to family and domestic duties may not be the same even though there is no doubt about their commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of family members. They combine with their partners to work tirelessly and unselfishly towards nurturing love, loyalty and family unity. Love rules the lives of both Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Sixes although outwardly they may not seem particularly affectionate. The Twenty-Two’s expanded range of activity will not be an indication of disinterest or self-centredness. It is just not in their nature to live within boundaries, even the boundary of a close family unit. The need to reach out to people and engage in large-scale activity is has to be released. Twenty-Sixes who prefer a somewhat structured lifestyle soon come to an understanding of the Twenty-Two’s need for freedom to operate on wider horizons. Many Twenty-Sixes are content to wait for an opening or opportunity, and once this is presented, they emerge as conscientious and devoted participants in whatever they undertake. There is a tendency in both partners to work out their problems themselves rather than turn to each other for help and guidance. They should try to overcome this habit. A Twenty-Two/Twenty-Six relationship is one that can combine as a close couple without major adjustments to their personalities.
22ND AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS
Governed by a master vibration, Twenty-Two personalities operate on a higher wavelength than most people. There are certainly exceptions to this condition. One of these is the Twenty-Seven personality who in many ways can reach the same heights of the Twenty-Two. As a general rule we understand individuals on the same level of thought only when we too have reached that same level. In a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Seven relationship it will be found that corresponding though processes exceed by far any that could be inadequate and that lead to misunderstanding and disagreement There is a profound depth and expansion in each, and nothing that could be regarded as superficial or frivolous. The degree to which an individual Twenty-Two or Twenty-Seven makes use of their high potential cannot be predicted without personal knowledge of them in all their life setting. In other words, family, cultural and educational background definitely determines the heights they may reach. Assuming a Twenty-Two/Twenty-Seven couple share relatively similar backgrounds their progress as a team will be towards a life of prosperity, intellectual stimulation and spiritual insight. They are gifted with a receptive disposition which is one of the best assets there is for self-development. An awakened Twenty-Two’s ambition will be to make a major contribution towards human welfare on as wide a scale as possible. They are builders by nature. The larger the scheme or enterprise the greater extent will their practical ingenuity be displayed. Twenty-Nines may not display the same practical skills. Their expertise is derived from a depth of intuition, wisdom, compassion and a humanitarian outlook on life. The master number 11 will influence this personality when the need arises (2 + 9 = 11), and elements of their spiritual nature are on the surface of their personality. They may be seen as perennial students, teachers, counsellors and psychics whose ambition is to uplift their own psychological and spiritual wellbeing as well as those of others. They are by no means without practical talents. The emphasis in this relationship is for the Twenty-Two to aim for high achievement in world affairs and the Twenty-Seven to probe and discover the inner side of life and share their findings with others. Spiritual values alive in both partners influence much of their mundane activities. Both have moved out of a limited sense of ‘I’ and ‘My’ and moved into an expanded identity of ‘We’ and ‘Us’.
Freed from the pressures of egotism, neither partner is likely to arbitrarily assume authority in this relationship. To take sole charge in a domestic scene is not as important as their ambitions for high achievement in public life and in personal development. Independent decisions will be made only when circumstances prevent consultation with each other. Their relationship will be based on trust and mutual respect of each other’s ability to make realistic decisions. Such decisions will be seldom contrary to or different from what they may have made after consultation. These are not stay-at-home individuals whose lives are fulfilled by the warmth, joys and safety of a secure domestic life. Both need to extend their activities beyond the domestic scene. The capacity to undertake both home and public responsibilities is one of nature’s gifts to both partners. A clear allocation of domestic duties will not be necessary as both are equally generous and responsible individuals willing to share day-to-day tasks. Their public responsibilities will not be allowed to interfere with domestic order and tranquillity.
The prospects of a compatible relationship between all subjects of the 22nd and 27th days cannot be taken for granted. Some real problems, bordering on incompatibility, could be created by certain Twenty-Two partners. While the important vibration of the birth month does not create much change in the personality of the Twenty-Seven it does create profound changes in some Twenty-Twos. Although persons born on the 22nd day operate quite often as pragmatic Four personalities (2 +2 = 4), they are not free of the self-consciousness and sensitivity of the 2 vibration. Any additional vibrations from the emotional plane create an over-abundance of emotion and sensitivity at the expense of objectivity. Consequently, those Twenty-Twos born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months fall into a group of individuals controlled more by feeling than by reason. This creates an inner insecurity which too often leads to actions and reactions influenced by negative qualities of defence, suspicion, distrust, misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the motives of others. They tend to see others as a projection of their own uncertain selves. On the other hand, Twenty-Twos as well as Twenty-Sevens born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are positive individuals who face life with self-confidence and self-reliance. Others approach life with a cautious self-assurance.
With the exception of negative Twenty-Twos whose vulnerable temperaments often isolate them from a happy social life, other Twenty-Twos and all Twenty-Sevens are endowed with an abundance of social graces. Though popular within their own social circles they are not socially dependent. They do not suffer from either an inner inadequacy or restlessness that needs to be supported by frequent interaction with people. While they make no effort to occupy the spotlight in any social scene they usually stand out from a crowd with a bearing of reserve, dignity and self-sufficiency. Their manner is seen as authentic, and there is little difference between their public face and their private manner. They feel no need to adopt measures to keep up with any real or imagined superiority put on by others, and instead treat such instances with humour or ridicule. At the same time, they could go out of their way to uplift and strengthen anyone suffering from a loss of self-esteem. Generally the roles played by the Twenty-Two will be that of an activist and builder and that played by the Twenty-Seven will be one of a student, observer, counsellor or philosopher. The complementary roles played by these partners enable them to function as a powerful team. Awareness and keen perception are qualities not lacking in the Twenty-Two, nor is a degree of practicality missing in the Twenty-Seven. It is the emphasis on practicality in one and studiousness in the other that distinguish the two individuals. Whenever possible, superficial social gatherings are avoided by both partners as they soon become weary and restless in unproductive activity, and look for release in some creative work or in mental stimulation found in books, music and natural surroundings. As a consequence of their commitment to work and study they may not spend much time in general conversation. Having little time and tolerance for frivolous talk, when they do enter into conversation between themselves and with others they choose topics of an instructive nature. They are by no means without a keen sense of humour. Always alert to the funny side of life, their wit and laughter are of a mature quality and never enjoyed at the expense of others. Given the best opportunities for self-development Twenty-Twos possess the potential to develop into commanding speakers who can influence and motivate vast audiences. Twenty-Sevens too can turn into charismatic speakers, but many need to overcome customary reserve, shyness and a natural reluctance to emphatically impose their views on others. When both partners speak out on any subject of a profound nature their inner selves take command creating an expanse of thought, fluency of speech, attractive body language and an aura of authority. These same qualities in modified ways are displayed in ordinary speech. Their voices are seldom raised and body language is used as a medium to convey much of their thoughts. The combination of practicality, spirituality and sublimated egos relieve them of the need for competition and petty argument.
A combination of manual skills, intellectual stimulation and spiritual enquiry will consume much of their free time. In addition, a calling for involvement in humanitarian service will consume much of their public activity. Once again, it may be mentioned that the degree to which they involve themselves in these directions will depend on their cultural background. A couple with similar backgrounds will be most fortunate because one will not have to match the level of thought and aspiration of the other. At a domestic level the Twenty-Two with better manual skills is certain to emerge as the handyperson fixing whatever repairs and improvements are needed around the home. Having a closer affinity with nature Twenty-Sevens are certain to take up gardening. Although these are not rigid divisions or preferences, Twenty-Twos prefer indoor hobbies such as cooking, and the Twenty-Seven will rather choose outdoor hobbies such as fishing and bushwalking. Both partners are pet lovers. Twenty-Twos are likely to be fond of dogs and the Twenty-Seven birds and fish.
Money management skills are present in both. Fair play and human dignity will be placed before excess of profit in their business transactions. Some negative Twenty-Twos excepted, both partners are free from the scruples and selfishness used for the acquisition of money and power. Making a good life is more important than making a living in terms of high income. Money will be spent generously yet responsibly. Domestic expenditure, saving and investment can be handled by either partner. Mutual trust will be another factor that ensures financial stability.
High emotional flights can be expected by these partners, without loss of emotional control. Ungraceful demonstrations of emotion are most unlikely, especially in the Twenty-Seven. Yet again with the exception of negative Twenty-Twos, these partners may surrender to emotional outbursts occasionally but not to a degree that disturbs personal wellbeing or the harmony of their relationship. Their sensitivity to subtle forces in life enables them to feel joy and sorrow more keenly than most people. Being aware and alert human beings, they have the power to make their own conditions of living, which in turn create their own rewards. They can enter each other’s worlds yet grant each other privacy. As they are individuals who have outgrown selfishness and have gained to a large extent command over their egos, one partner can enjoy freedom in a way that does not restrict the freedom of the other. A factor to be constantly kept in mind when considering the possibilities of a relationship between a Twenty-Two and a Twenty-Seven is the positive or negative impact upon the growing personality that would have determined the degree in which their elevated qualities are employed in adult life.
22ND AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS
Even numbers or receptive vibrations from the emotional plane are visible features in this combination of birthdays. A relationship in which both partners are governed by such forces will, for the most part, lack a sense of objectivity or clear reasoning powers. Instead, most of their thoughts, actions and reactions will invariably be influenced by emotion and self-consciousness. However, this need not be the whole condition with Twenty-Two and Twenty-Eight personalities. Although the emotionally-oriented 2 and 8 vibrations will certainly exercise a considerable influence individually and upon a partnership between the pair, they will not have total control. There are strong physical and practical elements in each that restrain excessive emotional expression. Both personalities have a reasonable balance between physical and emotional planes. Twenty-Twos are basically strong Four personalities (2 + 2 = 4) and Twenty-Eights are qualified One personalities (2 + 8 = 10 = 1). The 4 and 1 vibrations are the most tenacious, down-to-earth and practical of the forces operating on the physical plane. They provide consistency and strength of purpose to successfully complete any task undertaken by their subjects who remain faithful to a commitment.
The number or vibration of the birth month has a constructive role in the integral personality of the Twenty-Two and the Twenty-Eight. It divides them roughly into two groups in regard to positive or negative demonstration of their personality traits and talents. Those born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months suffer from an overflow of emotional features creating confusion between their reasoning powers, emotional vulnerability and hindrance of some of their practical talents. Their realistic aspects will no doubt emerge from time to time but their indecisive and sensitive nature not only creates turmoil within themselves but also introduces unnecessary problems into their relationship with others. Apart from these Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Eights who could be negatively inclined, all others are able to maintain a firm control over their emotions. Unlike their negative counterparts they do not compulsorily treat others as a projection of themselves, but to a good extent are able to treat them as they are in reality. Being more objective, they do not find it necessary to point out weaknesses or faults in others. They are much more inclined to observe and acknowledge their positive qualities. Such partners can look forward to a relationship based on love, loyalty, the merger of extraordinary talents and, consequently, mutual respect. Both place a high premium on individuality. When this is respected in a partnership of equals, a willingness for cooperation and consultation will emerge. They are types who resist direct orders or demands, although when a diplomatic approach is made they will be responsive to most requests. Twenty-Eights may display a tendency to keep their loved ones under their wings, so to speak. This will not find favour with a Twenty-Two partner who is somewhat similar in this respect and will want to compete. An arrangement can be made whereby equality is maintained. Despite their individualist nature both contain agreeable features that look eagerly for harmony in their intimate lives. In private and in public life they are types that do not surrender to setbacks in life and persist in the belief that no problem is without a solution. They are work-oriented people who may spend less time in domestic duties and more time in their careers or business affairs. Their attitude towards domesticity is not one of indifference or irresponsibility. On the contrary, they take great pride in their homes and in the achievements of their loved ones. Their problem is often an over attachment to success in the public sphere. Always under compulsion to get to the top of their careers they may not find time to pay adequate attention to domestic matters. The entrepreneurial spirit is too strong in both. In the process of fulfilling their ambitions they may be forced to suppress positive and desirable sentiment, create an aura of aloofness and carry this condition into family life. Life may eventually force them to realise that high achievement in public life will not pay dividends in domestic harmony and family togetherness. They are also people who do not depend on others for a helping hand, rather expecting to get out of life only what they have put into it by their own efforts. However, help from a third party in the domestic scene will be desirable if not essential.
As their sensibilities are vulnerable, emotionally-oriented Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Eights may suffer from varying degrees of introversion. Constantly fearing assaults upon their personality they remain constantly on guard against any real or imagined slights or criticism from others. Misinterpretation and mistrust of the motives of others could frequently lead to loss of friends, acquaintances, and unpleasantness with neighbours. All other Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Eights are able to feel at ease in society. Twenty-Twos, in particular feel at home among all sorts of people, irrespective of cultural differences, and reap the benefits of such interaction. Most Twenty-Eights are of a conservative nature. Unlike the Twenty-Two who may challenge prevailing conditions the Twenty-Eight prefers to abide by them. Acceptance and approval of society is important to them. There is a stronger feeling of self-importance in this personality that looks for acknowledgement and appreciation from others. Both partners will not permit social obligations to interfere with productive areas of their lives unless they contribute to them one way or another. They are not types who need to attach themselves to groups in order to feel secure. Sufficient power can be drawn from within themselves instead of dependence on reflected power from others.
The potential to develop into elegant and influential speakers is present in both, but the process to do so could often be slowed down by their busy lives. Time allowed for ordinary social conversation will also be limited. Between themselves many unspoken words pass from time to time. Body language may often be used in place of speech. For the most part, they deal in facts and figures leaving out imagination, conjecture and the need to resort to embellishment in order to impress others. As Twenty-Twos possess wider horizons of thought their choice of topics will be more varied, whereas Twenty-Eights may confine much of their speech to work related topics or to their favourite recreational pastimes. Personal matters enter more into their conversation than into that of the Twenty-Two. In addition to their practical sense, many Twenty-Twos may introduce a humanitarian, and often a spiritual touch into their opinions and judgments. Twenty-Eights also possess the ability to pass fair judgments although their evaluations are more from a utilitarian and practical point of view. These differences may be due to the spiritual nature of the Twenty-Two being closer to surface, and the orderly and practical nature of the Twenty-Eight being their ascendant qualities.
Most Twenty-Twos keep a strong hold upon their emotions and exhibit a fair degree of objectivity and non-attachment. Among other conditions, this becomes evident when they participate in sport or other competitive activities. Winning or losing does not carry them into heights of delight or depths of despair. Such conduct is not usual with most Twenty-Eights. These individuals allow themselves to become emotionally involved in all their activities, and emotional highs and lows are freely demonstrated. Sensitive egos have a lot to do with their reactions. Their ambitious, competitive and dedicated temperaments, especially in strength and endurance events, are invariably rewarded by high achievement as participants in their chosen sports or as coaches and administrators. They should, however, avoid becoming over involved in any one of their interests making them depend upon it for their wellbeing. This will not be a problem with Twenty-Twos as their free time will be divided among a variety of activities. Most positive Twenty-Twos will be involved in community service on a wide scale. If circumstances allow, work on an international scale will be taken up. Twenty-Eight partners are not without the capacity to join them in this field of activity, but the initiative and impetus will always remain with the Twenty-Two. Self-development, especially along spiritual lines, is another area of life which many Twenty-Twos will undertake. Left on their own, Twenty-Eights may not delve into the psychological and metaphysical aspects of life as they may be too involved in making a good material life for themselves and their loved ones. Once again, it will be the extended horizons of the Twenty-Two and the centralised habits of the Twenty-Eight that create these differences. Such differences, however, should not lead them into separate directions, and a mutual interest in each other’s activities can serve to enrich and strengthen their relationship. They are not so wide apart to prevent an interchange of support.
Generally, most Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Eights are responsible and skilled money managers. Their negative counterparts could be over attached to money and their material possessions. Instead of possessing wealth, these people are possessed by their wealth. The only security they know is symbolised by the amount of money they posses. All their transactions are made on the basis of profit and loss. Positive individuals, on the other hand, are in command of their wealth. Applying a fair degree of objectivity, money could pass through their hands and not touch them. Average Twenty-Two and Twenty-Eight partners should experience no difficulty or conflict over money matters. Both are generous yet careful spenders. As their tastes in food, clothing, hobbies and entertainment are not too different, spending on personal needs will not exceed spending on mutual needs.
As a relationship between average Twenty-Twos and average Twenty-Eights will be based on mutual respect they will look upon each other with the same eyes they look upon themselves. As individuals, they use very few people as confidants because they prefer to carry their burdens alone. However, in this partnership there will be no need to do so due to the mutual trust that will be built between them. The competitive spirit used often in public life will be greatly subdued in their intimate lives.
22ND AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS
Persons born on the 22nd and 29th days make a rare combination in which the spiritual component of the human personality becomes their essential guiding force. It may not manifest in the same manner in both, but will certainly be responsible for an initial attraction and subsequent formation of a permanent relationship. Imagination will not be stretched too far if they are classed as soul mates in mental and spiritual levels. Difference may, however, be seen in emotional and physical components of their integral personalities. Many relationships are likely to be helped or disturbed by these differences. Some partners may use mental and spiritual strength to overcome them. Others may fail to do so. A relationship in which one or both partners are predominantly emotionally and sensitively-oriented will not be as stable or successful as one in which emotion is not the principal motivating force. An overflow of emotion not only interferes with rational and realistic thought processes and full-scale application of practical talents, but also a harmonious interaction with people. Mental powers control emotion in those born in the 3rd and 6th months. Emotionally controlled Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Nines are those born in the 2nd, 5th and 8th months, and to some degree the 9th month. The 1st, 4th and 7th months create emotionally stable individuals. There is, however, a sub-division in this group. Twenty-Twos exercise a firmer control over their emotions than do Twenty-Nines. Mental and spiritual tendencies govern the Twenty-Nine’s outlook on life. These are minor differences, as both partners base their lives on the same ethical and spiritual values. They serve as complementary features rather than any that might be conflicting. Another important attribute shared by these partners is a strong humanitarian and global outlook which touches not only humanity at large but also all living forms.
Both partners are influenced by a higher mind related to non-physical or metaphysical aspects of life and a lower mind concerned with functional and utilitarian needs of the material world. They move back and forth between states. The time they spend in one or the other will be determined or influenced by their cultural background and current living conditions; although a total separation of these states seldom takes place. A close fusion can be expected when they have passed beyond early struggles for establishment of material prosperity. The average Twenty-Two is in a better position to arrive at a balance between action and contemplation, while study, investigation and instruction are qualities more in keeping with the personality of the average Twenty-Nine. Composure in the Twenty-Two and spontaneity in the Twenty-Nine are attitudes that often distinguish these personalities.
Both Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Nines are gifted with the capacity to see a broad picture rather than narrow ego-centred observations. They possess the potential to reach awareness that the same life that is present within themselves is also present in varying degrees in all living beings. Such awareness prevails over an arbitrary, dictatorial or overbearing approach in all their activities. Egotism in its primary condition which leads to separation and a firm ‘I’ and ‘My’ consciousness has been replaced to a good degree by less conscious egos which create unification or a ‘We’ and ‘Us’ consciousness. A relationship of equals formed by their expanded egos can create a position of considerable strength from an agreeable merger of individual talents. It must be emphasised again that this fortunate situation will depend upon the degree of cultural advancement present in each partner. Superior qualities of their vibratory forces remain dormant in individuals who have not received a favourable upbringing, although they can emerge to their full potential when triggered off by circumstances or association with positive partners. With the Twenty-Nine, the powerful positive influence of the master vibration 11 will often be felt as it works behind the scenes, so to speak (2 + 9 = 11).
These are both extroverted and socially-oriented personalities. Their form of extroversion is not intrusive, ostentatious or loquacious, but rather benevolent, enthusiastic and influential. Despite an outwardly friendly manner, they do not always allow convention or social pressures to get in the way of their chosen lifestyle. Originality and individuality are stronger forces than dependence and conformity. Time will always remain most precious to these busy people. It will not be sacrificed in unproductive social participation. A constant effort will be made to achieve a balance between a desire for social interaction and their need for solitude, either in their homes or in natural surroundings. While average Twenty-Twos and average Twenty-Nines are relaxed and affable in company their negative counterparts adopt self-conscious, suspicious and defensive attitudes which reduces much of their pleasure and their popularity. Their feelings of vulnerability hinder free and spontaneous speech and responses. Their body language often deters others from a friendly approach. As misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the speech and actions of others often takes place, all persons need to take care of what they say and do in their company.
Average Twenty-Twos and Twenty-Nines are pleasant and informative conversationalists. Rather than take over conversation, they are sympathetic listeners who await their turn to make their contribution. They are often sought after for advice and information. Others see in them a willingness and competence to help in a variety of ways. Twenty-Twos tend to give more practical and economic assistance while Twenty-Nines usually act as confidants and counsellors. Friends and acquaintances with personal problems usually find the Twenty-Nine more approachable. Twenty-Twos are by no means without eminent qualifications to undertake a role of counsellor but the time they have at their disposal is much less due to their involvement in practical help.
Much unspoken communication will take place between these partners. A psychic awareness of each other’s thoughts often takes the place of ordinary speech or explanations. Arguments between them will be few and far between. It is possible that the Twenty-Nine may not be as realistic and down-to-earth in their assessment of conditions. They could, on occasions, lose control of their emotions, raise their voices and use demonstrative body language. This could happen in joy as well as in anger. Twenty-Nines are people who remember and remain grateful for their good experiences with others and soon forget and forgive their bad encounters. It is not in their nature to hold grudges or resort to paybacks. Emotions of the average Twenty-Two may be on an even keel, although many negative Twenty-Twos could remain unforgiving and look for chances to get even with those who have hurt them in any way.
As these are partners who find common ground in cultural and spiritual matters, they will not be alone in their quest for knowledge. Much of their leisure time will be spent as an enthusiastic twosome in exploring inner and outer worlds. Having eclectic thoughts and visions they will not be bound by one set of objective interests or subjective study. Mature partners are certain to develop a moment to moment consciousness of their spiritual nature and apply it to their everyday contacts and undertakings. Hobbies taken up by the Twenty-Two will include a variety of sport and the use of their manual skills in carpentry, mechanics and other practical crafts. Voluntary social service on a wide scale will also be one of their invaluable contributions to society. They are in a better position than most to divide their free time proportionately and not allow one undertaking to overlap the other. Self-discipline is one of their strong qualities. Confusion and neglect will be exceptional. Twenty-Nines, on the other hand, with fewer manual skills, may concentrate more on music, dance, literature, art and various study groups. There is an element of restlessness in the Twenty-Nine which reduces self-discipline. As ardent lovers of nature, Twenty-Nines endeavour to spend much time with their pets, in their gardens and in other natural surroundings. Twenty-Twos are not without a strong attraction to nature in all its aspects, but the difference here is, once again, the allocation of time and energy. Twenty-Nines allow themselves much more time to get in tune with their surroundings.
Management of their finances is likely to fall into the hands of the Twenty-Two. Having a greater degree of practicality and economic value, money is safer in their hands. Most Twenty-Nines tend to be free spenders with little concern for money for its own sake or for future security. They are impulsive and impatient shoppers who do not pay much attention to actual need, value or quality of their purchases. They are exceptionally generous people who lavish gifts on others and spend generously on themselves. Twenty-Twos could be equally generous, although not to a degree that could stretch the family budget. Twenty Nines possess an amazing ability to recover from financial loss or other setbacks in life. They seem to possess an intuitive knowledge that they are cared for by higher powers. In this respect they are not often mistaken. Once again, Twenty-Twos are not without the same powers of recovery, but they seldom place themselves in positions from which they need to re-establish. If there is to be any sort of friction in this relationship it may be caused by the Twenty-Nine’s indiscriminate spending habits and the Twenty-Two’s cautious ways.
Average partners possess an inner knowledge that happiness and contentment are not found in their possessions in material terms, but rather from what they have acquired in cultural, spiritual and superior human values. Different observation points that create misunderstandings and different directions should not exist in this relationship. Their fundamental advantage is that one does not have to strive to match the thoughts of the other. Negative individuals excepted, these partners have ceased to identify themselves as separate individuals. Naturally adopting the policy of ‘what’s good for one, is good for the other’ they place their relationship before individual needs.
22ND AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 3rd and 22nd birthdays. The Zero in the 30th day does not add any new features or take away any existing features of the 3 vibration. At most, it may emphasise certain 3 characteristics.
22ND AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS
The relationship between a person born on the 22nd day and another born on the 31st day will be the same as that between a couple where one is born on the 22nd and the other is born on the 13th. 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 Twenty-Two personality.
The chapter on 13th and 22nd birthdays should be consulted.
