23RD AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS
The outcome of a relationship formed by persons born on the same day could turn out to be one of cooperation, conformity and harmony, or an opposite condition of confrontation, rivalry and distance. Similarities that outnumber dissimilarities in Twenty-Three personalities are such that a relationship between them is likely to fall into the latter category. These are freedom-loving, multi-talented and versatile individuals who thrive on experience, change and variety in their lifestyle. Attachment to a conventional and systematic way of life cannot be expected of a Twenty-Three. A real effort has to be made by these individuals to abide by timetables, and perform certain essential routine duties on time. As much as possible, they also need to select and direct special talents into permanent occupations. Many Twenty-Threes could fall into inconstant habits if they give way to natural feelings of restlessness, impetuosity, self-indulgence, evasion of issues and a desire for change for change’s sake. Those personalities born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are in a better position to control their mercurial temperaments. Others may give in and follow a nonchalant and changeable lifestyle. The multiplicity of talent within the Twenty-Three, in other words, is their best endowment as well as their most problematic one.
The three vibrations forming the Twenty-Three personality easily complement each other (2 + 3 = 5). All threes are, by and large, ego-centred forces. Most Twenty-Threes, therefore, seek personal satisfaction before giving thought to the welfare and wellbeing of others. Although this may be their first priority, they are also friendly, extroverted and generous individuals. Twenty-Thee partners will experience difficulty working towards the same goals. In order to avoid a disproportionate amount of time in personal programs they will need frequent reminders to subordinate many personal desires and give more attention towards mutual obligations. Such promptings can hardly take place between a pair of Twenty-Threes. Due to the similarity of skills and outlook one is not likely to see anything new or complementary in the other. The chances are that these partners are likely to go their own merry way rather than unite as a complementary force.
The 2 and 3 features of their outer personality expect, and in some instances demand the attention and adulation of their loved ones well before they are prepared to give the same in return. Both need to practice a greater degree of impersonality and objectivity before a mutual exchange of love and devotion is manifested. In the absence of this discipline, emergence of their fundamental 5 personality takes place. These are qualified Five personalities. All Five personalities, whether qualified or not demand personal freedom above all things. This characteristic usually undermines or inhibits the chances of a close and stable relationship.
All Twenty-Threes are too high-spirited and adventuresome to adapt to a quiet domestic life governed by routine and punctuality. Due to the diversified nature of their lifestyle the domestic scene in a Twenty-Three/Twenty-Three partnership is likely to be rather disorderly. An equal sharing of responsibility may not take place, or may become a bone of contention. The disposition of the Twenty-Three is not one of an overbearing or autocratic type. These individuals get their way with varying degrees of personal magnetism, affability, diplomacy, persuasion, manipulation, intrigue and opportunism. A self-appointed or acknowledged leader or decision maker will not emerge in this relationship.
An active social life is essential to the wellbeing of all Twenty-Threes. Seldom happy in their own company, they seek social interaction to overcome unease they feel in isolation or quietude, although this may be an exception if the individual is born in the 7th month as the 7 vibration will settle some of the restlessness. With an infectious vitality, enthusiasm, a vivid imagination and friendliness, they experience little difficulty occupying the spotlight in any company. The combination of inner restlessness, their need to reach out to people and the demands others make on their time could invariably result in an overbalanced social life. All Twenty-Threes gain a reputation as imaginative and lively conversationalists. Articulate speech is their optimum method of self-expression. Some could be excessive talkers and carry on speaking regardless of the degree of attention being paid to them. They could change from one subject to another with the greatest ease. Personal affairs will be one of their favourite topics. As the urge to express themselves is so strong they are usually impatient listeners. Fluency of speech is reflected not only in general communication when they are likely to dominate, but also in debate, oratory, argument and as demonstrators and actors. It is seldom easy to outclass or subdue them in discussions due the combination of agile minds, an extraordinary vocabulary and evasive skills. Differences of opinion between Twenty-Three partners could be noisy, prolonged and inconclusive. Their natural sense of humour combined with demonstrative body language emphasises the impact they make on an audience.
Following their multi-talented and lively nature and a natural passion for life, their non-working hours and holidays will be filled with a variety of activity. As they need to be constantly on the move, travel will be one of their favourite occupations. All Twenty-Threes are also natural artists. With a high sense of colour, beauty, rhythm, romance and an extraordinary capacity to take in everything at a glance, their potential to excel as creative or performing artists is limited only by the degree of self-confidence they possess. Their talents often exceed their degree of self-confidence. Many need a boosting of self-confidence and self-assurance from time to time and this will happen easier if there is a 1 vibration in their birth month. Whether Twenty-Three partners will help each other in this respect is debatable. The general nature of the Twenty-Three is to enter into an enterprise or avocation with enthusiasm, until a greater fascination comes along. They are types who can be depended upon to do the unexpected. Often rich in ideas and imagination they are not always reliable in execution or completion. The Twenty-Three’s world exists to be explored, experienced and enjoyed.
A fluctuating financial condition is likely to be the normal pattern in a Twenty-Three/Twenty-Three relationship. Competent money management skills are withheld from these multi-talented individuals. Most Twenty-Threes are lavish and self-indulgent spenders. Little thought is give for security in terms of savings and investment. Money is likely to go out of their hands as fast as it comes in, and often in excess of income. Their attitude towards money could vary between optimism, indifference and irresponsibility. Their generosity is not confined to personal needs, and is spread into their association with friends and acquaintances. A Twenty-Three couple will hardly be able to pool their resources and rely on each other to withdraw an equal amount for personal use. Arguments over money matters may be frequent. The major challenge confronting these partners is the need to overcome a sense of separateness and the vital need to cultivate one of togetherness. This latter condition can be encouraged by their ability to talk to each other and not fall into depressive and uncommunicative moods. A Twenty-Three cannot remain silent for long. As their natural tendency is to be more concerned with the way they live with others they pay hardly any attention to the way they live with themselves. Both need to practice periods of self-evaluation. Overcoming self-centredness to a fair extent will be a major step towards applying the same rules to themselves as they do to their partners and other associates. In other words, they may come alive to the fact that what is good for one has to be good for the other.
23RD AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS
One of the many fascinating aspects of Numerology Compatibility is the surprising differences that exist between consecutive numbers or vibrations. The numbers 23 and 24 as birthday combinations are prime examples. Consequently, individuals born on these days emerge as contrasting personality types. To say that their integral personality structures lead them into opposite modes of thought, action and direction will not be far from the truth. As this condition will be the principal impact upon a relationship between Twenty-Three and Twenty-Four partners several adjustments will need to be made by them before they arrive at a middle position. An initial physical attraction may sooner rather than later reveal the very real contrasts in their outlook on life. For this relationship to succeed they would need to amalgamate their several talents and their likes and dislikes rather than separating or resisting them. Conformity may not be accomplished easily. But if this is done in rare instances a romantic and opulent partnership awaits them.
The condition that creates major differences between these personalities is the predominance of active vibrations in the Twenty-Three, that is, the 3 and 5 and the combined forces of three receptive vibrations in the Twenty-Four. The Twenty-Three is a qualified Five Personality (2 + 3 = 5) and the Twenty-Four, a qualified Six (2 + 4 = 6). The attributes of these basic forces are so far apart that efforts needed to combine, and benefit from them will be considerable. The integral Twenty-Three radiates in varying degrees alert and extroverted qualities of enthusiasm, imagination, sociability, popularity, nonchalance, adventure, change, flexibility, adaptability, charm and enterprise. The Twenty-Four, in contrast, spreads serenity, caution, deliberation, peace, prudence, hospitality, tact, tolerance, balance, duty, dependability, moderation and service. An ‘I’ and ‘My’ consciousness generally favoured by the Twenty-Three has been expanded into a ‘We’ and ‘Us’ consciousness in the Twenty-Four. In other words, perception of the feelings and needs of others is keener in the Twenty-Four. The interplay of giving and receiving is balanced in the Twenty-Four, but there may be more receiving than giving in the Twenty-Three. Within reason, the Twenty-Four will subordinate or postpone personal desires or needs rather than interfere with the harmony of their relationship or the wellbeing of loved ones. Twenty-Threes may be less self-sacrificing. The nature of the Twenty-Four is such that they put in much more effort to ensure solidarity and permanence in whatever they undertake. While success in this relationship depends on these essential qualities, it will also need an injection from time to time of new ideas and methods. This will be the contribution made by Twenty-Three partners who are open to change with changing circumstances. Some may need to exercise control over a natural urge to submit to change just for change’s sake. If they fail to do so some real problems will be created in this relationship.
Twenty-Threes often take for granted the freedom to do as they please. They are not types who can be made to be accountable for their movements and actions. The need to avoid unnecessary and unproductive complications in their lives is ever present. The Twenty-Four is in a much better position to exercise self-control and follow a regular course of conduct. They are able to maximise use and appreciation of what they already possess instead of constantly looking out for more variety. The changeable nature of the Twenty-Three, while expanding their range of activity, prevents them from sitting back and obtaining a like degree of pleasure from their possessions. Negatively inclined Twenty-Threes, especially, are exposed to the danger of acting on the surface of life instead of using more enduring values. As the average Twenty-Three is constantly on the lookout for new experiences they usually avoid leadership and decision making responsibilities. Freedom of movement they need can hardly be combined with such responsibilities. The Twenty-Four, on the other hand, expects to enter into a relationship based on cooperation, mutual support and family togetherness. They may be hard pressed to meet with these expectations in partnership with an elusive Twenty-Three. In both domestic and public duties Twenty-Fours instinctively see what has to be done and do it without reminders or promptings. Punctuality is another of their advantageous assets. Their wellbeing is intimately connected with home, family, neighbourhood and community. They seldom have time or the inclination for matters beyond their close environment. Being much too adventuresome and restless to abide by the discipline, routine and timetables of domesticity, Twenty-Threes adopt an opposite lifestyle. Many domestic tasks may be left undone and taken up by their partners. Twenty-Fours may do so up to a point, and when they have decided that they have given enough they make a stubborn stand. Partnership with a Twenty-Three will always be a difficult task as their levels of commitment will not be the same. They could look upon a Twenty-Four’s request for help as a threat to their sense of freedom. A give and take mentality is not part of their temperament. As breadwinners versatile Twenty-Threes are able to bring in a good income. But regularity of income cannot always be depended upon because their sources of income may change from time to time. However, though brief periods of unemployment may occur from time to time they do not remain unemployed or unemployable for long. Twenty-Fours are in a position to successfully undertake dual roles of breadwinner and homemaker. Permanence is sought in employment just as they do in relationships. Many remain in one vocation until retirement.
An active social life is essential to the wellbeing of the Twenty-Three. Maximum self-expression takes place in their interaction with people. As natural actors they enjoy being at the heart of any form of entertainment. They thrive on attention and adulation, and set out to win acceptance and approval. Most Twenty-Threes do not have to strain in their efforts to gain popularity. They are optimistic, humorous, exuberant and charming personalities who can lift the tone of any dull company. A negative aspect of their social nature is the likelihood of confusing or mistaking excitement found in social life with real happiness that can only be enjoyed in conditions of peace, contentment, periods of solitude and companionship with a loving partner. Twenty-Fours on the other hand not only radiate these later qualities but earnestly put them into practice. They are able to see the much superficiality that exists in indiscriminate social activity. They are not people who involve themselves in any pursuit that could imperil domestic harmony. Away from home they are mildly extroverted individuals who avoid the spotlight or centre of attention. They prefer to be entertained than do the entertaining in the same manner as a Twenty-Three. Their method of entertainment is amply demonstrated in the domestic scene. They are known for their hospitality due to the warmth and care they display towards their guests.
As mentioned earlier, travel, movement and changing scenes figure largely in the Twenty-Three’s working life while permanence, familiarity and seniority are essential conditions in the life of the Twenty-Four. This contrast will be reflected in the ways they spend their free time and in recreational activity. As Twenty-Threes need to reach out to wider fields of experience many of their activities will be away from home. In sharp contrast the Twenty-Four’s hobbies will be concentrated for the most part within the home and extended dutifully into community activity. All Twenty-Fours possess a fondness for good food and are naturally skilled in all aspects of cooking. They do not depend on others to fulfil their demands. Manual dexterity and sensitivity of touch are other extraordinary talents. Home maintenance, repairs and extensions will be undertaken by them. Twenty-Threes, being exceptionally versatile and adaptable, are not without similar skills and many more. However, their inquisitive nature and their need for frequent diversion and experimentation prevent them from remaining constant to a few specialised interests. Twenty-Four partners may not find them available when jobs have to be carried out promptly. Twenty-Fours do not experience difficulty specialising in a vocation or an avocation whereas Twenty-Threes need to make a genuine effort of self-control to do so. While Twenty-Fours may follow one or two hobbies or recreational activities, Twenty-Threes will be involved in several. Awareness and alertness in the Twenty-Three are quite extraordinary features. They are people who can do more than one thing at a time. Twenty-Fours are not travellers, and attachment to home and family is much too strong to keep them away for long periods. Their holidays away from home will be for limited periods and usually spent at familiar locations. They will look forward to returning home towards the end of their holidays. As Twenty-Threes are moved by curiosity and fondness for new things, different locations will be selected each time for their holidays, and much reluctance will be shown for returning to home and work. Physical comforts and a peaceful environment for their holiday locations are important to the Twenty-Four, while Twenty-Threes look forward to entertainment and exciting night life.
The method in which each partner chooses to spend money is certain to be a perennial source of disagreement. Although Twenty-Threes possess all the skills to earn a good living from more than one source they are free spenders, often rash and self-indulgent. Money in their hands is likely to go out as fast as it comes in, and in some instances spending may exceed income. Falling into debt may not cause much mental disturbance. Bills may not be paid on time. The Twenty-Four’s policy is just the opposite. Falling into debt is an ever present fear. Bills are always paid on time. They are cautious and responsible money managers who go after bargains with a view to obtaining full value for money spent. While a Twenty-Three may lose money through speculation or irresponsible spending, Twenty Fours avoid all forms of gambling and seldom make mistakes in financial transactions. Their sense of wellbeing is dependent on financial security. They do not share the same optimism natural to the Twenty-Three. Their efforts to take charge of money matters in this relationship will be constantly resisted by the Twenty-Three.
Impatience and patience are qualities that mostly distinguish these partners. A Twenty-Three’s optimistic influence can help the Twenty-Four handle diversity and free them from limitations they are prone to set for themselves. Twenty-Threes do not hesitate to go after what they want. Twenty-Fours may know what they want but are not as bold and adventuresome to go after them. Although not aggressively competitive, Twenty-Threes do not back away from some degree of competition or rivalry. Twenty-Fours usually avoid these situations. They set out to seek people and conditions that correspond to their own unflappable, cooperative and stable energy radiations. The program they set is to do their best without entering into power struggles. Their secret of life is balance while the Twenty-Three’s style is in drama and variety. As natural actors Twenty-Threes put on different faces in different situations. The real personality cannot be determined from a few encounters. Twenty-Fours, in contrast, are too straightforward and down-to-earth to mask major aspects of their personality.
23RD AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS
Partners born on these days introduce a multiplicity of personality traits and talents into their relationship. Being different personality types, however, not all their contributions are conducive to a close and cooperative union. Outwardly they may display many points of resemblance and concurrence, yet inwardly, not all their energies vibrate at the same frequency. In the course of time they may be confronted by some fundamental differences that call for understanding and acceptance. Basically, Twenty-Three individuals remain extroverted, sociable and youthful while Twenty-Fives display maturity and a combination or balance between extroversion and reserve. The Twenty-Three is a qualified Five personality (2 + 3 = 5) and the Twenty-Five a qualified Seven (2 + 5 = 7). While the 2, 3 and 5 vibrations within the Twenty-Three integrate in a way that does not create divisions within the personality, this does not happen with the Twenty-Five. The 2, 5 and 7 vibrations contain many contrary features, some of which may be difficult to reconcile. The main cause of this problem will be the inevitable clash between characteristics of the 5 and 7 forces.
Even numbers or receptive vibrations promote intimate qualities of cooperation, agreeability, consultation, togetherness and interdependence. Odd numbers favour independent traits such as individuality, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, non-conformity, competition and emancipation. As both the 23rd and 25th birthdays are controlled principally by odd numbers many of their components, if allowed free rein, may influence partners to move apart or form loose and disconnected relationships. In a Twenty-Three/Twenty-Five combination this unwanted prospect can be avoided or considerably lessened by the qualities of the 2 vibration present in both. This vibration contains all the desirable features for a close and companionable relationship. Its qualities of peace, harmony, cooperation, togetherness and service hold the key to the success of this relationship. Great care should be taken to avoid overlooking its influence as this is a gentle and sensitive force that could be surpassed by more assertive vibrations.
As mentioned earlier, the three vibratory forces within the Twenty-Three tend to attract and blend creating a relatively uniform personality structure. Uniformity here does not necessarily mean stability, solidity or fixity. The Twenty-Three is an open personality whose actions and reactions can be anticipated with a fair degree of confidence. They do not spend much time probing into their human nature, and would rather accept themselves and others as they are or as they find them. Due to the disparity between their 5 and 7 aspects, Twenty-Fives take a different approach to life in general. They can be pulled or tossed between their physical nature and their spiritual nature. Their obligations towards physical and material affairs and social responsibilities often interfere with their need for personal development at cultural and spiritual levels. Physical and earthly values may be stronger in younger Twenty-Fives although these will gradually give way to philosophical and spiritual values as they grow older.
Twenty-Threes present themselves in varying degrees as enthusiastic, joyful, lovable, vivacious, sensuous and sparkling personalities. Negative qualities they may display are likely to be a lack of punctuality and absence when they are most needed. A desire for change for change’s sake could be another problem with these partners. They could also be temperamental, impetuous and imprudent. It is their youthful nature that is largely responsible for their positive and negative qualities. Twenty-Fives, in contrast, display an even mixture of reserve, elegance, and self-restraint as well as control over their emotions. They are not as easily understood as are the Twenty-Threes. While a Twenty-Five will in straight away become aware of the general nature of a Twenty-Three partner, the complex personality of the Twenty-Five will present many problems to the understanding of a Twenty-Three.
Twenty-Three and Twenty-Five personalities are not impelled by an urge to take sole control when they enter into an intimate relationship or a business partnership. At the same time, they will not submit to a secondary role and abide by decisions made by a partner. The spirit of freedom is much too strong in both. Their best arrangement will be a relationship of equals, respecting each other’s right of self-expression and self-determination. Love for each other will flourish in these conditions and will certainly be stifled and will eventually wane in conditions of possessiveness, dictatorship or dependence. Some Twenty-Threes, especially those born in the 2nd, 5th or 9th months, are likely to overlook mutual obligations. An excess of restlessness may prevent them from adjusting to a stable domestic life governed by routines and timetables. Although the 2 vibration is a cooperative force its negative qualities of indecision, excitability and changeability appear in conjunction with other emotionally-oriented forces. Almost all Twenty-Fives can be depended upon to shoulder their responsibilities in domestic and public life. The 2 vibration’s positive qualities of peace, harmony, silence, unselfishness and service emerge strongly when found in conjunction with the 7. They will pay much more attention to the domestic scene than a Twenty-Three is likely to do.
Although these partners may not adopt aggressive or domineering attitudes towards each other they may use various subtle forms of manipulation or strategies in order to have their own way or get their partners to change their ways. This may continue as a deliberate or innocuous game between the pair. Twenty-Threes tend to seek more sources outside themselves for happiness and self-expression. Twenty-Fives are in a better position to enjoy external sources as well as look within themselves in their search for peace and contentment. This difference will be reflected in their social and recreational activities. Twenty-Threes can easily lose themselves in music, drama and all other forms of art, while Twenty-Fives can do the same in inspirational literature and song as well as in contemplation of the wonders of nature. All persons influenced by the 7 vibration are drawn irresistibly to nature in all its grandeur. The temperament of the Twenty-Five is such that they can relate to as well as withdraw from the attractions of social life. They are able to participate in society without loss of sensitivity or consciousness of their spiritual nature. In a social setting agreeable to them they usually switch between the roles of onlooker and participant. They are people who need to be certain of their position before they open out. Spontaneity is not one of their characteristics. They are, however, keen observers who avoid the superficialities found in unrestricted social activity. Twenty-Threes do not possess this dual capacity for sociability and solitude unless they are born in the 7th or 9th months. The average Twenty-Three is never far from the centre of events and, consequently, finds little time for quiet contemplation. They usually do not feel the need for introspection. Their range of friends and acquaintances will be much wider and inclusive of a variety of personality types. Twenty-Fives will not have as wide a range, although their friendships will be deeper and more enduring. They are much more selective of their choice of company. Twenty-Threes are not too disturbed by invasions upon their time and privacy but Twenty-Fives will not hesitate to avoid or call a halt to unwanted intrusions or familiarity. Twenty-Threes carry about them an atmosphere of cheer, humour and camaraderie while most Twenty-Fives display a mixture of fine social graces and reserve. There is an element of inscrutability in the Twenty-Five which remains one of their attractions while sensuality and youthfulness are some of the endearing qualities are evident in the Twenty-Three.
Fluency of speech is another of nature’s gifts to the Twenty-Three. Many turn out as incessant talkers who can use smooth-tongued speech as well as cutting and critical language. A vivid imagination combined with an irresistible need to give oral expression to their thoughts results in Twenty-Threes being poor listeners. Having a way with words and persuasive tongues many use speech to cover up their insecurities and as a means of attack and defence. They can be sparkling conversationalists as long as they do not focus too much upon their own affairs, which many are inclined to do. Twenty-Fives are also gifted with fluency of speech, however, unlike the Twenty-Three, they are also endowed with the ability to control or monitor oral expression. They are able to pay attention to others in the same manner in which they expect others to pay attention to them. Twenty-Fives do not continue talking if they feel they are losing the attention of their audience. This seldom happens as they choose subjects acceptable to their listeners leaving personal matters to a minimum. While Twenty-Threes may speedily change from one subject to another Twenty-Five may choose to remain silent and do not talk for the sake of talking. Periods of silence are important to them. Any uncertainties or insecurities they may have are not given out at random but kept back for communication with trusted confidants.
Both partners identify themselves keenly with body, mind and emotion. As intellectual and physical stimulation is essential to both they set out to extract a good deal out of life. This will be observed in the variety of hobbies and recreational activities they indulged in. Twenty-Fives, by virtue of their 7 aspect, extend themselves into various aspects of the non-physical or spiritual realm. Both partners are moved by a strong vein of curiosity. Twenty-Threes have no fear of the unknown or unfamiliar in human relations, or in physical or mental realms, although they may shy away from research into metaphysical or psychic study and research. Twenty-Fives can involve themselves deeply in physical and mental activities and fearlessly extend their curiosity into non-physical spheres. While Twenty-Threes with a modern outlook are content to revel in present or current conditions, consciousness of the past is included in the Twenty-Five’s perspectives. They are in a better position to enjoy a fuller current of life embracing past, present and future. As all Twenty-Threes are natural artists they are found among actors, acrobats, dancers, singers, painters, comedians and circus clowns. Among other avenues of self-expression including various forms of art, Twenty-Fives find peace and contentment in music, literature and in natural surroundings. Both partners can find many things in common during their spare time and holidays away from home. Travel will be a pleasure enjoyed by both. Twenty-Threes may prefer the attractions of the city more than the countryside while Twenty-Fives prefer long sallies into the country and visits to places such as churches, castles and old homes and gardens. A compromise can easily be made. Home owning couples are certain to maintain a beautiful garden. The Twenty-Three’s artistic touch combines well with the botanist and gardener in the Twenty-Five. Cats, dogs, fish and birds will also contribute to the wealth and beauty of a Twenty-Three/Twenty-Five home.
As multi-talented people their individual and joint efforts will ensure a regular inflow of money into their partnership. They could engage quite often in more than one source of income. It is also possible that a steady outflow of money is likely to take place as both are generous spenders. They set out to combine the business of making a living with the firm intention of making a good life, replete with rich experience. On the occasions when a degree of discipline has to be used it will be done by the Twenty-Five. The 7 vibration provides caution and self-discipline in most things including money management. Twenty-Three partners should avoid making decisions on important expenditure without consultation. As both partners could in the course of time change their sources of income they should pay close attention to future security and their retirement income. This responsibility is likely to be undertaken by the Twenty-Five.
The Twenty-Three personality, as mentioned earlier, expects for the most part, outer conditions to change to suit or conform with their expectations. Negative individuals, especially, may use language to manipulate others and exercise power over them despite having insecurities of their own. Twenty-Fives, on the other hand, can effect some changes in outer conditions without pressure or harm being put on others. They are also able to look within themselves and ascertain what changes they could make to adjust to circumstances beyond their control. They are in a better position to gain an objective understanding of people and situations and, consequently, place their obligations towards others before personal needs. They are more aware of the law of compensation. Their influence will no doubt help in the formation of a ‘We’ and ‘Us’ arrangement instead of a ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’ one that could be natural to many Twenty-Threes. While most Twenty-Threes introduce more romance, sentiment and variety into their relationships Twenty-Fives provide more maturity, stability and emotional balance.
23RD AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS
The many contrasts between odd and even numbers, or active and receptive vibrations will be the primary factors influencing a relationship between Twenty-Three and Twenty-Six partners. On the one hand, these polarities may be responsible for an initial attraction, and on the other hand, for subsequent discovery of many divergent features. No doubt, there will be others that will emerge as complementary features. The attraction of opposite dispositions which first brought them together may not turn out as endearing and enduring in the reality of intimate living. In addition, adjustments at a composed level necessary to reconcile different needs and attitudes may not take place. Twenty-Threes may initially be attracted to Twenty-Six personalities for the warmth, comfort, maturity and stability they unconsciously need and instinctively feel in them. The Twenty-Six will be uplifted by the vitality, youthfulness, vivacity, laughter and optimism of the Twenty-Three. Whether both parties possess the capacity to absorb, sustain and enjoy these differences will be put to the test in the long term. Active vibrations tend towards individuality and competition while even numbers favour bonding and cooperation. Individuals moved by active forces instinctively assume decision making roles both in public and private life. They cannot settle amicably into equal partnerships. They may not be sharers by nature but they are generous givers as long as they are in charge. Such personalities need receptive forces as part of their integral personality structure to mitigate some of these arbitrary features. This condition is present in the Twenty-Three. Although the active 3 and 5 vibrations have overall control of the personality their receptive 2 qualities can curtail many uncooperative features. The 2 vibration, however, is a gentle and sensitive force whose qualities need to be carefully and consciously evoked.
The Twenty-Six personality is a combination of three receptive forces. While freedom and individuality are hallmarks of the Twenty-Three, cooperation, consultation, guardianship and domesticity are the chief distinguishing features of the Twenty-Six. The nature of the Twenty-Three tends towards receiving before giving, whereas the Twenty-Six is more inclined to give before expectation of any form of return. Peace, tranquillity, agreeability, diplomacy, sociability and strictly non-competitive ways are essential features of their 2 and 6 aspects. The Twenty-Six is, however, a qualified Eight personality. While many positive 8 qualities remain intact other features of this vibration such as assertiveness, competition and one-pointed ambition are moderated by their 2 and 6 aspects The 8 vibration is the only receptive force that contains these self-assertive and competitive qualities. Normal 8 qualities of courage, discipline, practicality, enterprise, financial acumen, administrative and managerial skills merge successfully with 2 and 6 forces enhancing the overall powers of the Twenty-Six. They are, however, not without a degree of inner conflict created by their non-competitive and peace loving outer features and their ambitious, competitive and assertive inner features. Harmonising these contrary forces will be a problem faced by all Twenty-Six personalities. Those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months encounter this problem more than others.
Twenty-Three and Twenty-Six partners should in the course of time treat their differences as conditions to be understood and accepted and not to be judged and disapproved of. This process may be easier for the Twenty-Six due to their greater degree of patience, maturity and objectivity. They do not exhibit impatience when things do not work out as rapidly as they would like them to. There is a greater degree of awareness in this personality that much of life is compromise and perseverance. In contrast, with youthful impatience and an urge to keep moving on to new things, Twenty-Threes expect instant results or early solutions to their problems, whether satisfactory or not. Most Twenty-Threes, especially those born in the 2nd, 5th and 9th months thrive on drama. Twenty-Sixes are usually unflappable individuals who do not react kindly to the melodramatic actions and reactions of a Twenty-Three partner. Neither partner will make overt attempts to assume a decision making role and take overall charge of the relationship or attempt to change the habits of the other. But both are likely to use various subtle means to get their own way in most things. This practice is not likely to be given up despite the fact that neither party can be manipulated. Although both resist a direct or subtle approach they can be reached by use of tact and diplomacy. The Twenty-Six is in a better position to use this method of communication. Twenty-Three partners can be influenced by such means as they are flexible, adaptable, friendly and non-aggressive. The Twenty-Six, on the other hand, is not as easily manoeuvred. The main challenge faced by these partners is to settle down to a shared experience with decisions made mutually. It is inevitable that the Twenty-Six will undertake a larger share of responsibility in all domestic matters, with or without the knowledge of the Twenty-Three. Two of the strongest domestic and family-oriented forces operate within this personality. They tend to settle into a regular mode of thought and action and resent being removed from these states. Possessiveness and over-attachment to could be a problem with some Twenty-Sixes, especially those born in the 2nd, 4th and 6th months. More often than not a Twenty-Three partner will be happy to surrender domestic duties as most feel tied down by routine and timetables so essential to an orderly home life. They cannot afford to carry their indifference to domestic cares too far as some measure of help will be expected from them by the Twenty-Six. Though inconsistent, Twenty-Threes are exceptionally versatile people who can be called upon to help in any emergency.
Social life will be an area in which Twenty-Threes come into their own and exercise more influence in this relationship. Self-expression is carried to its fullest extent when they interact with a variety of people and conditions. Deprived of frequent social intercourse they could be subject to mental and emotional restlessness. Periods of isolation and solitude, though greatly beneficial to them, are avoided. By using overt and covert methods all Twenty-Threes seek the centre of attention in any social gathering. When they fail to receive the attention they expect they do not hesitate to create situations that attract notice. As most Twenty-Threes do not relate to their Twenty-Six partners at many levels, they need different people and activities in their lives. Some may carry social involvement to excess. Almost all Twenty-Sixes follow a disciplined lifestyle in which proportionate time is given to their careers, domestic responsibilities, hobbies and social activity. As nothing is taken to excess, they do not overstay their welcome as guests, nor do they overdo entertainment of their own guests. This cannot be expected from Twenty-Three personalities as they are easily carried away while enjoying themselves. Although all Twenty-Sixes are consummate hosts and hostesses the inviolability of home and family life is held as sacred. Social activity will not be allowed to interfere with domestic harmony. Having an exceptional talent for gaining cooperation of their friends and associates they are always successful in organising social functions. Twenty-Three and Twenty-Six partners can combine successfully as hosts and hostesses either at home or at public receptions. The Twenty-Three will likely undertake entertainment of guests and the Twenty-Six, with their usual orderliness and efficiency, will take overall charge of food, drink and other arrangements.
All Twenty-Threes are richly endowed with the gift of speech. As they seldom struggle for words or subject matter they maintain a constant stream of talk in any company in which they find themselves. They are sparkling conversationalists able to see the funny side of life and create merriment and laughter. With a desire to dramatise they tend to embellish and exaggerate whatever topics they deal with. Some may overplay their hand by indulging too much in personal affairs. They are also people who can easily talk themselves out of tricky situations or cover up mistakes resulting from impetuous behaviour. Unlike Twenty-Threes who are always ready to enter into animated discussions or arguments, Twenty Sixes choose to remain silent when they do not find topics of conversation of any practical value. While emotional demonstration and expressive body language enter into the Twenty-Threes oral expression, Twenty-Sixes use a more reasonable approach and subdued body language. Although they may not have the same sparkle as the Twenty-Three, they are compensated by patience, sympathy and understanding. Personal affairs do not figure as much in their conversation. They are better listeners who are able to take an objective approach and not identify themselves as much as the Twenty-Three with matters under discussion. In arguments between these partners, and there could be many, the Twenty-Six’s views will eventually prevail. They cannot be moved on points they believe are right and proper.
Recreational activities and other personal hobbies are invariably governed by the various sets of vibratory forces forming the personality structure of an individual. As Twenty-Threes find it hard to keep still and Twenty Sixes are able to slow down and relax, their free time will be spent in different ways. Impelled by their youthful, inquisitive, adventuresome and mobile nature Twenty-Threes enter into a great variety of activity, most of which will be outside home. They may be attracted to all forms of art and all forms of sport, excluding only body contact sports. The Twenty-Six’s hobbies may not be as self-centred, although always connected with home, family and neighbourhood. Cooking and home beautification will be special hobbies. Good table manners will be insisted upon by all Twenty-Sixes. Driven by a strong social conscience many at some time of their lives take up voluntary work within their communities. As they possess greater fixity of purpose, the Twenty-Six does not relate to the Twenty-Three’s desire for movement and change. The latter’s desire for frequent travel to different locations will clash with the Twenty-Six’s need to spend some of their holiday time at home or at familiar destinations. They return home from their holidays eager to resume their normal activities, whereas Twenty-Threes usually return reluctantly. With a strong desire to pass on knowledge all Twenty-Sixes are natural teachers, guardians, counsellors and confidants. Twenty-Threes are adept in gathering and publishing information on current affairs. They find themselves in their element as informants, announcers, journalists, interviewers, impromptu speakers and short story writers.
An aspect of this relationship that will be most difficult to reconcile will be their different attitudes towards money and its uses. Both partners are competent breadwinners who could turn some of their hobbies into money-making ventures. However, the Twenty-Three’s competence may not be accompanied by thrift, permanence and regularity. There could be changes in their sources of income and variations of the amount they earn. The Twenty-Six, on the other hand, remains in a chosen business or profession until retirement unless they are forced to make changes by circumstances beyond their control. They are not only reliable breadwinners but also proficient money managers. Financial security is essential to their wellbeing. They are generous but discriminating spenders, constantly on the lookout for bargains. Twenty-Threes show an opposite attitude towards money. It is incidental to their immediate needs and not an essential part of the present or future. In their view money is for spending. They are consequently free spenders with an optimistic outlook on life. Money can pass through their hands and not touch them while the Twenty-Six is very much aware of the money they spend. Many Twenty-Threes, if not restrained, could spend beyond their means. Twenty-Six partners will constantly attempt to curb their spending habits. The Twenty-Six is in a better position to sit back and, from time to time, enjoy their possessions and take pride in them. Twenty-Threes continue to seek more pleasures and risk missing out on more enduring values. Personal expenditure is held in control by the Twenty-Six, whereas it could fall into excess with the Twenty-Three. It will be necessary for the Twenty-Six partner to take charge of their financial affairs. They will in fact do so with or without the consent of the Twenty-Three.
Like energy attracts and blends with like energy. This will hardly be the situation between persons born on the 23rd and 26th day. Their basic difference is that they do not usually see the same things, and when they do they interpret them differently. One radiates a zest for living and the other, stable and responsible living. Twenty-Threes can surrender to sentimental impulse and romantic overtures while Twenty-Sixes are more restricted in this respect. Their depth of love and duty-consciousness may be deeper and enduring but these are not displayed as much in words and demonstration. Their actions speak louder than words. While Twenty-Threes are driven for the most part by spontaneity, animation and a need for melodrama, Twenty-Sixes enjoy regulated and conventional ways. Careful consideration is given to consequences before they speak or act. They seldom find it necessary to extricate themselves from difficult situations created by impetuous behaviour. They take responsibility for their speech and actions. Most Twenty-Threes are adept at finding something or someone to blame for consequences resulting from their own impulsive speech or actions.
23RD AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS
A complicated network of vibratory forces will be set in motion in a relationship between persons born on these days. Both possess multi-form personalities open to several avenues of self-expression. As individuals, they are a good example of the complexity of human nature. In an intimate relationship their multitude of personality traits and talents create an intensification of this complexity. Dissimilarities intermingle with similarities, although their similarities take different directions in manifestation.
The vibratory forces operating within the Twenty-Three are responsible for the formation of a youthful nature with all the attributes of the young at heart. Those operating within the Twenty-Seven, on the other hand, create a mature personality with the collective attributes of experience and wisdom. This is the fundamental difference in the outlook of these individuals which creates the urgent need for understanding and acceptance if their relationship is to survive. The Twenty-Three is not a disunited personality in the sense that contrary forces operate within them. The distinctive features of the 2, 3 and 5 vibrations integrate agreeably to form an open and recognisable personality type. The same condition prevails within the Twenty-Seven. The intrinsic qualities of the 2, 7 and 9 vibrations unite to create a uniform personality structure. This personality, however, is not as open and easily readable as is the Twenty-Three. Marked differences in their style and temperament are created by their distinctive vibratory forces. Curiosity, investigation, experimentation and the gathering of experience are common features, but applied in almost opposite ways. Both look for and respond in different ways to an infinite variety of life’s experiences. Ego-centredness and gratification of personal needs are foremost in the minds of the Twenty-Three while many Twenty-Sevens have emerged from an ego-centred framework enabling them to use more objectivity in the manner in which they treat their experiences. Twenty-Threes make more demands due to their sources of contentment and happiness usually being outside themselves. Twenty-Sevens extend themselves into the outer world while also being able to look within themselves. In this sense the Twenty-Three is more dependent on interaction with others for their wellbeing while Twenty-Sevens are more self-sufficient. In other words, Twenty-Threes generally deal in tangibles while Twenty-Sevens deal in a combination of tangibles and intangibles. Twenty-Sevens show an increased interest in metaphysical aspects of life as they grow older and are released from many mundane responsibilities. The single digits 2, 7 and 9 above all other numbers possess an intimate connection with psychic, intuitive and spiritual realms. As the Twenty-Seven is governed by all three of these vibrations (2 + 7 = 9), the non-material and non-physical aspects of life exercise an overall influence on the ways they think and act. Their daily activities alternate between times of awareness of spiritual values and physical and material necessities. Their private struggle will be the reconciliation of these opposites. Younger Twenty-Sevens may suffer confusion and uncertainty when faced with ego-centred, competitive, aggressive and acquisitive persons. The Twenty-Seven’s ego has been raised to an awareness of their relationship with all living things, causing the absence of rivalry and acquisitiveness or the presence of an ‘I’ and ‘My’ mentality. Their 7 and 9 aspects hold a higher position in the spiralling forces of evolution. By the introduction of considerable breadth of vision they are placed in a better position to perceive life’s situations comprehensively rather than selectively. Another distinguishing feature in this relationship is the inclusiveness of the Twenty-Seven and the relative exclusiveness of the Twenty-Three.
A Twenty-Three/Twenty-Seven relationship will not be one in which one partner arbitrarily assumes the role of leader. In the case of the Twenty-Three freedom of speech and action is much more important than the exercise of authority over others. They are not always firm decision makers as they have little desire to be tied down by responsibilities of leadership. They are, however, naturally skilled in contriving and manipulating people and situations so that they can have their own way in most things. They do not abide by routine, discipline and timetables set by others. There is a form of ambivalence in the Twenty-Three that demands freedom as well as attention. While interacting with people they draw upon ample resources of charm, a powerful imagination, flexibility of thought, speech and movement and, in many instances, a simple belief that they possess the right to expect or even demand their attention or even their services. There is a vulnerable sensitivity which is often hidden behind a facade of vivacity and camaraderie. This is a form of dependence that will not find favour with a Twenty-Seven partner. Twenty-Seven personalities are leaders by example. Their mental processes are too considerate and understanding to adopt arbitrary, assertive or devious measures to overpower or unfairly influence others. While expecting respect of their own individuality they readily grant the same to all others. In addition, their aura is such that people hesitate to exercise undue influence over them or approach them with familiarity. Twenty-Three personalities will be attracted to them for their breadth of vision and their understanding and tolerance. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, will be uplifted by the laughter, conviviality, optimism and the simple joys of living enjoyed by the Twenty-Three. There may be times when the Twenty-Seven is subject to moods of melancholy or feelings of unaccountable sadness. Despite the fact that they may disapprove of frivolity, these feelings will be reduced by the presence of a Twenty-Three partner. In spite of their own insecurities, all Twenty-Threes are exceptionally alert and observant people who can react instantly to all types of situations.
Both Twenty-Threes and Twenty-Sevens are endowed with a wealth of social graces. However, their needs and conduct vary in degrees, method, and selection. Basically, they are divided by spontaneity, enthusiasm, geniality and inclusiveness in the Twenty-Three, and reserve, poise and a balance between extroversion and selectivity in the Twenty-Seven. Although both are concerned with the impact they make on society they may not always enjoy the same company. Twenty-Threes endeavour to spread joy and friendship, and in doing so, enhance their sense of identity. Twenty-Sevens spread comfort and knowledge. Their sense of identity is merged into a greater concern for the wellbeing of others. There is more understanding of others in the Twenty-Seven as they have acquired a greater proportion of self-understanding. Frequent social involvement is essential to the wellbeing of the Twenty-Three, and they revel in being at the heart of any form of entertainment. Twenty-Sevens need a balance between social life and privacy. They are more inclined to analyse social values and act according to their assessments. Time for themselves is more important than frequent social interaction. Twenty-Threes do not probe into social values as much. They revel in the social whirl as they possess the flexibility that enables them to handle all sorts of social situations. In the long term, Twenty-Sevens form more enduring friendships because their nature is to show a genuine interest in others. Twenty-Threes may have a fast turnover of friendships, aiming to get others interested in them.
Twenty-Threes could be among the most loquacious of all personality types. All three vibrations operating within them are conducive to fluency of speech (2 + 3 = 5). Language can be used by them as weapons of offence and defence, and especially in manipulation and concealment of insecurities and fears. They are impatient listeners who cannot resist the urge to draw attention to themselves. For instance, when they ask others for their opinions or advice, what they really expect is their concurrence or collaboration. Those Twenty-Threes who can exercise a measure of self-control emerge as humorous, delightful and dynamic conversationalists. Those who do not could be quite boring and invariably deflect the attention of their listeners. Eloquence rather than verbosity is the distinguishing feature of all Twenty-Sevens. They are able to stand up and speak when necessary as well as sit down and listen. Very seldom do they switch conversation to their own affairs, but when they do it will not be for self-promotion, but to enhance the quality of conversation with their knowledge and experience. They are not intentional attention seekers. They choose what to say and what to overlook while Twenty-Threes, who are moved by spontaneity and an easy flow of words, do not resist an urge for argument or the desire to have the last word. Although Twenty-Threes are inclined to incisive speech they are not subject to animosity or resentment. More often than not their intention is not to hurt but merely to maintain continuity of speech. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, avoid entering into animated argument. They use a well timed silence in order to defuse a heated situation. Running battles or trials of strength do not interest them. At the instance of the Twenty-Seven unspoken communication may often take place between these partners.
The ways these partners spend their free time will invariably take different directions. Self-expression in a variety of forms is needed by all Twenty-Threes. While this is also part of the Twenty-Seven’s needs, they possess a strong urge towards study, investigation, research, and meditative practices, in particular. As socially-oriented individuals who need to fill their lives with activity, Twenty-Threes spend much of their free time in sport and functions associated with sport. Having a high sense of beauty, colour, design, originality and modernity they are also creative artists who win prominence in the fashion world. They are also natural actors, dancers, humorists, entertainers and impromptu speakers. They are keen travellers who seldom spend their holidays at home. They are city people rather than country folk who choose to spend their holidays among the bright lights of cities. Twenty-Sevens engage in many home based hobbies. They are ardent nature lovers who need to spend time in natural surroundings. Their choice of holiday locations will be the countryside or by the sea. Cities will be chosen only for educational purposes. All Twenty-Sevens are natural historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and environmentalists. They are also perennial students of esoteric subjects and never happier when they divide their time between their gardens and their libraries. While Twenty-Threes concentrate on the present, Twenty-Sevens feel a strong attraction to the past.
Conflict over money matters is certain to remain an unpleasant aspect of this relationship. Although neither partner values money for its own sake, their spending and saving habits vary considerably. Twenty-Threes could be self-indulgent and impulsive spenders. They could be indifferent or optimistic towards future financial security. Most Twenty-Threes possess the knack of making and attracting money from a variety of sources, but they also possess the knack of spending it as fast as it comes in. They may allow expenditure to exceed income as indebtedness does not weigh heavily on their standards. Bills may remain outstanding or paid at the last moment. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, exercise caution and responsibility in handling their income. Although they appreciate the value of money they handle it with a degree of non-attachment just as they do with their other material possessions. They are generous but not impulsive buyers. They are also shrewd investors. All household bills will be paid on time. They avoid falling into debt because staying in debt disturbs their sense of propriety. Twenty-Three partners should defer to their advice and strictures in regard to all money matters.
Twenty-Threes are more inclined to think in terms of their wants and rights while Twenty-Sevens are less demanding and think in terms of their responsibilities. As the process of self-observation and self-development is followed by most Twenty-Sevens they develop a philosophy of life which is applied to their day-to-day activities and relationships. As Twenty-Threes are usually active in the mainstream of life they do not experience rare moments of reverie and contemplation that can only be found in silence and solitude. In partnership with a Twenty-Seven they will be given the opportunity to slow down in their outer experience and enter into inner experience.
23RD AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS
Qualified Five and qualified One personalities are formed by the vibrations operating within the 23rd and 28th days of the month (2 + 3 = 5 and 2 + 8 = 10 = 1). There are similarities between the 5 and 1 vibrations as the chapter on the 1st and 5th birthdays indicate. But dissimilarities will outnumber similarities when these vibrations operate within the 23rd and 28th days. Differences are created in the first instance by the disparity between the 3 and 8 vibratory forces. The 2 vibration shared by both is an adaptable and collaborative force which supports rather than alters characteristics of a vibration to which it is aligned. It tunes in, and in the process, enhances the qualities of the 3 and 5 in the Twenty-Three and the 8 and 1 in the Twenty-Eight. A magnetic attraction between these personalities may not take place. However, in the event of this happening, a problematic relationship will be the result due to the meeting of a complexity of vibratory forces.
All three vibrations forming the integral personality of the Twenty-Three are of a youthful nature in which self-consciousness and the urge for self-expression are predominant features. With an ‘I’ and ‘My’ mentality, concern for their own needs exceeds awareness of their obligations towards others, in the first instance. However, self-centredness in these individuals should not be interpreted as selfishness. They are, in fact, generous with their time, money and possessions. All they need are frequent reminders to be removed from self-absorption. Such reminders will not be resisted, although they can be expected to soon subside into their natural state. This habit will be most tiresome to a partner such as the Twenty-Eight, who expects a reasonable degree of thoughtfulness, cooperation and consistency in a partner. Alertness towards the wellbeing of others may be found to some degree in Twenty-Threes born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months while others may need to be constantly brought into line. There is a contradictory element in these personalities which demands the freedom to do as they please on the one hand, and on the other hand, shows a deep-seated need for company. Not only do they need company but also the approval and admiration of their associates. This mixture of freedom and dependence will not find favour with a Twenty-Eight.
Though Twenty-Threes are controlled by sensitive and fastidious egos they are not assertive or commanding types. They will not attempt to assume the role of leader and decision maker in a relationship. Personal freedom is more important than the responsibilities of leadership. At the same time, they are people who do not meekly submit to rules and regulations set by others. Their competitive spirit is used to inspire and enliven rather than dominate. Various forms of persuasion, manipulation, subtlety, escapism and mental agility are also used to convert others to their ways. Once again, these tactics combined with a tendency to act without consultation will not succeed with a Twenty-Eight partner. All Twenty-Eights are endowed with qualities of orderliness, punctuality, organisation, authority, leadership, ambition and dependability. These are found within their 1 and 8 vibrations. Their 2 aspect serves to mitigate some over-assertive and dictatorial aspects of these forces. It also combines well with the 8 vibration’s high sense of justice. Despite their authoritative nature, Twenty-Eight’s are able to use objectivity in their assessments of persons and situations. They are not likely to abuse a role of leader and organiser, to which they are naturally fitted. In public life and in the sporting arena they are highly competitive and emotionally reactive by reversals of any form. While Twenty-Threes recover quickly from loss or defeat Twenty-Eights take a much longer time. In partnership with a Twenty-Three there is no doubt that most important decisions relating to family welfare will be made by the Twenty-Eight. A problem in this relationship is that neither partner is domestically inclined. Both need to go out into public life for work as well as play. While Twenty-Eights are single-minded in building a career or business, Twenty-Threes may often change directions. As insufficient attention is not given by Twenty-Threes towards gaining adequate self-knowledge, many could be confused about their identity and suffer from uncertainty and insecurity. As a consequence, they look towards others for reassurance. A facade of extroversion and optimism cannot be mistaken for self-assurance. Those Born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months possess an adequate degree of self-confidence. Others adopt various strategies to overcome a lack of self-sufficiency. Twenty-Eights are much more in charge of themselves, despite the fact that they suffer from emotional reactions when their egos are offended by unacceptable speech and actions of others. For the most part, their self-control is strong enough to conceal their emotions, although occasional outbursts of temper can be expected.
As Twenty-Threes need to function in the mainstream of life their social contacts and activities will be varied and widespread. With a knack of getting the best out of social situations they are always eager and enthusiastic when entering into new social activity. A quick turnover of friends and acquaintances will be the general pattern of their social life. A possessive or clinging friend will not be able to hold exclusive rights to a Twenty-Three’s friendship. The need for all Twenty-Threes to constantly move on makes it impractical to keep up with the large number of friends and acquaintances they gather in the course of an extended social life. Twenty-Eights are not as gregarious or dependent on social activity in order to feel fulfilled. Success in work is more important to them than social popularity. Many of their social contacts may be with friends made at work. As they are by no means as open, curious and adventuresome as the Twenty-Three they are certain to find it quite irksome to keep up with their partner’s social whirl.
The most prolific speech vibrations are contained within the personality of the Twenty-Three. They are gifted with a rich vocabulary and a light-hearted sense of humour. Depending on the cultural background of a particular Twenty-Three their mode of conversation could range from using vibrant and captivating speech to superficial and incessant talk. As they are never at a loss for words, they cannot be dismissed lightly in any form of argument or serious discussion. They may not always stick to facts but rather resort to diversionary tactics to avoid being cornered in debate, or to avoid being forced to acknowledge an error or indiscretion. Most Twenty-Threes tend to monopolise conversation. With demonstrative body language they seldom fail to create an impression on their listeners. Their Twenty-Eight partners, however, may find their verbosity rather irritating. Twenty-Eights are straightforward and unambiguous speakers. While the Twenty-Three’s speech is governed by imagination, enthusiasm and fluency, the Twenty-Eight speaks with authority, authenticity, and carefully chosen words and phrases. Their body language is reserved and controlled despite the fact that their emotions are easily aroused. As Twenty-Threes revel in debate they do not take exception to their opinions being challenged. But Twenty-Eights, who usually avoid being drawn into argument, take umbrage when their views are contradicted.
Propelled by their restless nature Twenty-Threes are likely to engage in many more recreational activities than their Twenty-Eight partners. With a capacity to handle several things at once, and seeking constant novelty, they do not remain long in one or two forms of sport or other recreational activity. They are not fiercely competitive persons, but having natural talent they invariably excel in any sport they undertake. Participation in social activity associated with sport is just as attractive to them. On the many occasions they emerge as winners they bask in the admiration and adulation they receive from their supporters. Many of their hobbies and recreational activities are seldom separated from their vocations. They are natural artists with a heightened sense of colour and beauty. Self-expression is directed into acting, painting, interior decorating and any other form of artistic expression. As frequent change of scene is necessary, all Twenty-Threes are keen travellers.
The competitive spirit is much stronger in the Twenty-Eight. Physical activities are much more attractive to them than imaginative and artistic interests. With high ambition and pride of achievement they play to win and suffer much when they fail. Unlike the Twenty-Three, their recreational activities are usually separated from their professional or business life. This is fortunate, as most Twenty-Eights could be over-dedicated to their work, often falling into the bad habit of carrying work problems into their private lives. They specialise in one or two sports and continue as administrators, coaches, or commentators when their playing days are over. As change or movement are not necessary for their wellbeing, they are not ardent travellers. Any travel they undertake may be associated with their roles in public life.
The different value systems held by these partners will be clearly evident in the way they handle their finances. Twenty-Threes spend their money without attachment to it, or concern for future security. As far as they are concerned money is made for spending. However, those Twenty-Threes born on the 1st, 4th, and 7th months can exercise better control over their spending habits than if they were born in the other months. Self-indulgent spending will consume much of their income, and expenditure may often exceed what they can afford. Lack of punctuality is a problem in many aspects of their lives and so bills may not be settled on time. Borrowing money will not weigh heavily on their mind. They are people who can quite readily go on holidays on borrowed money. In contrast, Twenty-Eights are responsible money managers, not only of their own finances but also as accountants, bankers, and brokers in public life. Their expenditure will not exceed income and all bills will be paid on time. They are generous, but not extravagant on personal needs. Except for major investments, such as motor vehicles and real estate, they avoid falling into debt. When they do so, every effort is made to clear their debts as early as possible. As the Twenty-Eight will be the stronger half of this relationship, spending and saving should be in their hands. Their attempts to take control will be resisted by the Twenty-Three. The only option will be to allow the Twenty-Three a certain amount for free spending.
The vibratory forces within the Twenty-Three, as in all other persons, are only a framework of potential that awaits development in carefully chosen channels. The Twenty-Three’s greatest challenge will be to decide what they want out of life, and having to decide to maintain a steady course. A problem facing Twenty-Three partners is that the Twenty-Three most often is a late starter, whereas the Twenty-Eight is able to chose and follow a steady course early in life. Not only is there a greater willingness to accept responsibility for their actions, but all Twenty-Eights also get their priorities in order. This is another problem with most Twenty-Threes who too often get their priorities mixed up. As these partners do not relate to each other on many levels, a reciprocal relationship will always be difficult. This can only be altered when a Twenty-Three begins to focus more on their responsibilities than on personal desires, and the Twenty-Eight pays less attention to their ambitions in public life and more towards their family obligations. The mercurial nature of the Twenty-Three which introduces change in a relationship will not be without advantage. The Twenty-Eight, within reason, should accept certain changes as being an essential part of life.
23RD AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS
A complex pattern of vibratory forces operate within each of these birthdays. Self-definition and self-understanding are greater challenges faced by Twenty-Three and Twenty-Nine personalities than by many others. More often than not an alliance between them may be formed before each has had time to acquire some measure of self-knowledge. The vitality of their relationship and the chances of its survival will be severely tested when a complex and often tempestuous mixture of turbulent emotions, mental alacrity and physical movement is released. While seeking both consciously and unconsciously to understand their own natures they will be confronted with the additional task of accepting and adjusting to a multiplicity of ideas, methods, values and responses that will enter into their relationship. Both partners are not without the capacity to absorb and endure the feverish pace of an involved lifestyle, but there are some pressures that are likely to result in a loss of intimacy. Both view any form of possessiveness, dependence or command as a threat to their need for space and freedom. At the same time there is also an ambivalent trait in their need for romance and intimacy. By the exercise of patience their most urgent need will be to allow time for mutual understanding.
Another problem arising in this combination of birthdays is that not all Twenty-Threes emerge from the same mould. This is the same with all Twenty-Nines. The number or vibration of their birth month plays a significant role in shaping their integral personalities. The qualities of the 1 vibration are best suited for these individuals. Those born with this number in their birth month are essentially positive personalities with the best chances of harnessing and using in a constructive manner the multiple talents of their birthday vibrations. The 1 vibration provides willpower, decision, direction, authority, self-discipline, self-confidence and the staying power to complete whatever they undertake. A relationship in which both partners possess this vibration in their birth month will have the best chances of success. Compatibility between couples without the positive influence of the 1 cannot be forecast with any degree of certainty. They may be subdivided into further divisions according to the nature of the number or numbers of their birth month. Those with emotional 2, 5, 8 and 9 vibrations will be overbalanced on the emotional plane. Emotionally based thoughts and actions will override rational thought processes. The absence of willpower, self-discipline, punctuality, dependability, proper direction and staying power are some negative features found in these individuals. Inadequate self-confidence and self-esteem may be covered up by excitable and exaggerated behaviour. Twenty-Threes and Twenty-Nines born in the 4th and 7th months are not too dissimilar to their counterparts born with the 1 vibration in their birth month. They may not possess the same degree of self-confidence, but they do possess all the assets relative to the physical plane, such as manual dexterity, practicality, order, steadfastness, and down to-earth values. The 3, 6 and 9 create mentally oriented individuals. They may not be quite adept with their hands but mental creativity takes the place of manual dexterity. (It should be noted that the 9 vibration, although on the mental plane, is an emotionally reactive force).
The urge to take sole charge of situations in which they find themselves in is not strong in these personalities. Their need for personal freedom is more compelling than the need to control or dominate. Various forms of resistance, escapism, disobedience and manipulation will be used when they are prevented from having their own way. When two such partners use these and other subtle strategies they will not help their chances of forming a harmonious and close relationship. Their lives are not bound by the limitations of convention. The absence of pride and the presence of a good sense of humour in both parties usually overrides ill feeling towards others and prevents them from keeping a mental record of any real or imagined hurts. Both are able to see the funny side of human nature. These are assets that will certainly help them reconcile many differences. While Twenty-Threes may resort to instant retaliation and then soon forget an issue, responses from Twenty-Nines may be governed by patience and understanding. They may react judiciously when there is need to clear up misunderstanding. Their greater sense of objectivity helps them understand and sympathise with the failings and idiosyncrasies of others. The influence of the master vibration 11 will often be felt by them (2 + 9 = 11). Self-examination and self-development will be observed religiously in Twenty-Nines nurtured in a genteel environment. Twenty-Threes may not be as objective in their assessments and judgments due to their tendency to relate most things to their feelings and desires. They do not penetrate into things as deeply as a Twenty-Nine. In other words Twenty-Nines are better equipped to see the whole picture while Twenty-Threes are more selective. Twenty-Nines make a conscious effort to say and do whatever is appropriate in all circumstances while Twenty-Threes may not be as attentive or circumspect in what they say and do.
Irrespective of the various types that are formed by these birthdays all Twenty-Threes and Twenty-Nines allow emotion to override mental process in different degrees. They cannot be said to be totally in charge of their emotions. Consequently, many may be faced with the need to retract from speech or actions they have made without sufficient forethought. Making concessions, however, is not difficult for these individuals because both possess flexibility and the mental capacity to make sound adjustments. A stubborn or prideful ego is not part of their constitution. It does not stand in their way when a change of mind becomes necessary. As mentioned earlier, standard or conventional behaviour cannot be taken for granted due to their susceptible and mercurial temperaments. Twenty-Threes are generally more open in sentimental and emotional expression while Twenty-Nines release their inner feelings infrequently, and then only up to a point. They usually acquire a greater understanding of their Twenty-Three partners than the Twenty-Three does of them.
The social scene will be one area of life in which these partners share many similarities. Their conduct and deportment in society may not be the same, even though both possess the social graces of popular hosts and hostesses. They enjoy entertaining as much as they enjoy being entertained. Twenty-Threes usually look for happiness in sources outside themselves. In this respect they suffer a form of dependence on friends and acquaintances, which may not always be conducive to an independent and self-sufficient lifestyle. Due their need to have people around them they are disturbed by periods of inactivity, silence or solitude. Twenty-Nines, on the other hand, can divide their time between social activity and periods of privacy. They are people who can be alone but not lonely. They are able to find happiness outside themselves as well as within themselves.
In the 3 and 5 aspects of their personality (2 + 3 = 5, Twenty-Threes have at their command two of the most fluent speech vibrations. In addition, their 2 aspect is a pleasant communicative force. When combined with the 3 and 5 much of the shyness or hesitancy of this vibration is turned into spontaneous oral expression. All Twenty-Threes are consequently great talkers. Uncomfortable gaps in conversation do not occur when they are part of a group. The entry of a positive Twenty-Three into any gathering is a guarantee that conversation will flourish. The talkative habits of many Twenty-Threes may vary from light-hearted entertainment to tedious or boring conversation. Despite the fact that their powerful imagination, mental flexibility, alertness and curiosity provide them with a great variety of impersonal topics, some choose personal affairs as their chief topic of conversation. Others who can reach a fair level of objectivity are consummate conversationalists. The quality of the Twenty-Three’s conversation will obviously vary according to the cultural level of each individual. As the Twenty-Nine does not feel a constant urge to express themselves in speech, they may find their Twenty-Three partner’s talkative nature interfering with their need for periods of silence during which they need to indulge in contemplative pleasures. Having all the qualities of an accomplished conversationalist Twenty-Nines do not allow many personal affairs to damage the quality of their speech. They are patient and understanding listeners with the capacity to give objective and impersonal opinions and advice. While Twenty-Threes are always ready to enter into light-hearted argument or animated debate, Twenty-Nines avoid argument or unproductive speech. They prefer to settle differences in a rational and amicable manner without entering into prolonged discussions. Egoistic demands and the desire to have the last word are not aspects of their personality.
There is no doubt that both partners are open to the bountiful panorama of life. They are not among those who sit still awaiting opportunities and experiences to present themselves. They keep moving with the times, forever indulging in a variety of pastimes and recreational activities. They are generally non-competitive people who enjoy participation and the social aspects of sport rather than the need to win at all costs. All Twenty-Threes possess a high sense of colour, beauty and design. There is no form of artistic expression that is closed to these enterprising individuals. They are creative artists as well as performing artists. Those who are not professional artists usually take up one or more forms of art as an avocation. As actors they are best in romance, comedy and impersonation. While Twenty-Nines are not without the same degree of appreciation of natural beauty they are not as spontaneous in self-expression. They may not be as versatile as the Twenty-Three in the performing arts either. Those who do take to acting are more successful in tragedy than in comedy. In order to gain high achievement in whatever they undertake, these partners should not take their multiple talents for granted. Proper training and perseverance are needed for real success. Multi-talented people are too often tempted to change direction too often and too soon. Both Twenty-Threes and Twenty-Nines constantly endeavour to increase their store of knowledge. Twenty-Threes, for the most part, channel their talents into physical, emotional and mental outlets. Twenty-Nines do not equate themselves entirely with their physical bodies, and proceed further into deeper levels of their personality. They are in a better position to recognise their spiritual nature and devote time towards spiritual enlightenment. Both partners are natural travellers. This will be another aspect of their life that will bring them together. Although their initial choice of destinations may differ, it will not be difficult to reconcile any of these differences. Twenty-Threes often prefer cities, and the Twenty-Nines prefer the countryside. At the same time, the cultural and historical aspects of most cities will be of keen interest to all Twenty-Nines, and the beauty of the countryside will arouse the artist in the Twenty-Three.
Fluctuations in their financial position can be expected. Both partners have the capacity to earn a good income from more than one source. They are much too resourceful to fall into unemployment or underemployment. However, their multiple talents do not include good money management. Both are generous and impulsive spenders. Money may go out of their hands as fast as it comes in, and often faster. Any periods of insolvency will be created by their own impatience and extravagance. Despite this tendency, these partners possess the ability to recover from hard times and re-establish themselves.
Even though there is a mutual need for space and unhindered self-expression, both partners need appreciation of each other’s worth and reassurance of their love and devotion. Many Twenty-Threes are likely to give less and expect more while Twenty-Nines generally follow the opposite course of giving more and expecting less. Twenty-Threes should not take the Twenty-Nine’s generosity and patience for granted as there are limits to their tolerance. In most instances when circumstances prevent them from having their own way Twenty-Threes tend to find fault with outer forces while Twenty-Nines look within themselves to find causes and remedies. A factor that works in favour of these partners is their ability to adjust quickly to sudden change, whether favourable or unfavourable. Both accept change as an essential and unavoidable part of life. Good fortune is accepted with grace and ill fortune handled with acceptance and optimism. Their ability to communicate with each other is another asset that can be used to clear up misunderstandings and accept differences of opinion. By and large, this is a relationship in which nothing should be taken for granted. Both parties should be alert to each other’s special needs and idiosyncrasies.
The most prolific speech vibrations are contained within the personality of the Twenty-Three. They are gifted with a rich vocabulary and a light-hearted sense of humour. Depending on the cultural background of a particular Twenty-Three their conversation could range from vibrant and captivating speech to superficial and incessant talk. As they are never at a loss for words they cannot be dismissed lightly in any form or argument or serious discussion. They may not always stick to facts, and resort to diversionary tactics to avoid being cornered in debate, and may also refuse to acknowledge an error or indiscretion. Most Twenty-Threes tend to monopolise conversation. With demonstrative body language they seldom fail to create an impression on their listeners. Their Twenty-Nine partners, however, may find their verbosity rather irritating. Twenty-Nines are straightforward and unambiguous speakers. While the Twenty-Three’s speech is governed by imagination, enthusiasm and fluency, the Twenty-Nine speaks with authority, authenticity and carefully chosen words and phrases. Their body language is reserved and controlled despite the fact that their emotions are easily aroused. As Twenty-Threes revel in debate they do not take exception to their opinions being challenged. Whereas Twenty-Nines, who usually avoid being drawn into argument, take umbrage when their views are contradicted.
Propelled by their restless nature Twenty-Threes are likely to engage in many more recreational activities than their Twenty-Nine partners. With the capacity to handle several things coupled with a constant search for novelty they do not remain long in one or two forms of sport or other recreational activity. They are not fiercely competitive persons, although with natural talent, they invariably excel in any sport they undertake. Participation in social activity associated with sport is as attractive to them. On the many occasions they emerge as winners they bask in the admiration and adulation they receive from their supporters. Many of their hobbies and recreational activities are seldom separated from their vocations. They are natural artists with a high sense of colour and beauty. Self-expression is directed into acting, painting, interior decorating and any other forms of artistic expression. As frequent change of scene is necessary, all Twenty-Threes are keen travellers. The competitive spirit is much stronger in the Twenty-Nine. Physical activities are more attractive to them than imaginative and artistic interests. With high ambition and pride of achievement they play to win and suffer much when they fail. Unlike the Twenty-Three, their recreational activities are usually separated from their professional or business life. This is fortunate as most Twenty-Nines could be over-dedicated to work and often fall into the bad habit of carrying work problems into their private lives. They specialise in one or two selected sports and continue as administrators, coaches, or commentators when their playing days are over. As change and movement are not necessary for their wellbeing they are not ardent travellers. Any travel they undertake may be associated with their roles in public life.
The different value systems held by these partners will be clearly evident in the manner in which they handle their finances. Twenty-Threes spend their money without attachment to it, or concern for future security. As far as they are concerned money is meant for spending. However, those Twenty-Threes born in the 1st, 4th and 7th months can exercise better control over their spending habits. Self-indulgent spending will consume much of the income brought in by other Twenty-Threes. Expenditure may often exceed income. Lack of punctuality is a problem in many aspects of their lives. Bills may not be settled on time. Borrowing money will not weigh heavily on their mental wellbeing. They are people who could go on holidays on borrowed money. Twenty-Nines, on the other hand, are responsible money managers, not only of their own finances but as accountants, bankers and brokers in public life. Their expenditure will not exceed income and all bills will be paid on time. They are generous, but not extravagant on personal needs. Except for major investments, such as motor vehicles and real estate, they avoid falling into debt. When they do so, every effort is made to clear their debts as early as possible. As the Twenty-Nine will be the stronger half of this relationship, spending and saving should be in their hands. Their attempts to take control will be resisted by the Twenty-Three. The only option here is to allow the Twenty-Three a certain amount for free spending.
The vibratory forces within the Twenty-Three, as in all other persons, are only a framework of potential that waits development in carefully chosen channels. The Twenty-Three’s greatest challenge will be to decide on what they want out of life and then decide to maintain a steady course. A problem facing Twenty-Nine partners is that the Twenty-Three most often is a late starter, whereas, the Twenty-Nine is able to choose and follow a steady course early in life. Not only is there a greater willingness to accept responsibility for their actions, but all Twenty-Nines also get their priorities in order. This is another problem with most Twenty-Threes who too often get their priorities mixed up. As these partners do not relate to each other on many levels, a reciprocal relationship will always be difficult. This can only be altered when a Twenty-Three begins to focus more on their responsibilities than on personal desires and the Twenty-Nine pays less attention to their ambitions in public life and more towards family obligations. The mercurial nature of the Twenty-Three which introduces change in a relationship will not be without advantage. The Twenty-Nine, within reason, should accept certain changes as an essential part of life.
23RD AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 3rd and 23rd 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.
23RD AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS
The relationship between a person born on the 23rd day and another born on the 31st day will be the same as that between a couple where one is born on the 23rd 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-Three personality.
The chapter on 13th and 23rd birthdays should be consulted.
