24TH AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS
A pair of Twenty-Four personalities may confidently expect a relationship in which love, harmony and reciprocity are the governing factors. Being like-minded individuals moulded by similar vibratory forces this is their privilege. However, despite their similarities the hopes and expectations of the best of couples may be tempered to some degree by unrelated exterior forces. Each partner is likely to be the product of special family, religious, educational and social backgrounds. This should not be regarded as a real obstacle to compatibility. Certain habits and beliefs may differ, but their understanding and acceptance of each other will not be difficult due to the patient and accommodating nature of the receptive vibrations of the Twenty-Four personality. Another factor to be considered is the presence of other vibratory forces within each birth date, especially the vibration of the birth month. This may often be different and be responsible for variations of personality, and will be a desirable condition in a Twenty-Four/Twenty-Four relationship. The relationship between these two individuals will be one that seeks order, contentment, stability, togetherness, solidarity, loyalty, domesticity, parenthood and community welfare. However, their lifestyle and objectives may place restrictions on spontaneity, curiosity, inspiration, adventure, investigation, imagination, flexibility, enthusiasm, change, travel and the need take risks and spread themselves over wider horizons.
The fundamental similarities in skills and temperament allow these partners to work together towards the same goals. Sound commonsense will direct their thoughts and actions. People influenced by even numbers invariably favour bonding as opposed to those influenced by odd numbers who favour independence and individuality. As these partners belong to the former group they do not view interdependence as a threat to their individuality. On the contrary, their individuality is strengthened and their natural talents manifest more effectively in cooperation or in partnership with others of similar temperament. Their natural desire is to function on an equal and consultative basis. Twenty-Fours do not possess inflated ideas about themselves, and have instead a quiet and unobtrusive confidence. They are generally non-competitive individuals with subdued but sensitive egos. Being rational and practical people success in all their ventures, including the most intimate and important one of marriage, is achieved not by haphazard use of their several talents, but by the right and proper use of them. The vibratory forces of the integral Twenty-Four (2 + 4 = 6) are spread in equal proportion over the physical, emotional and mental realms. Instead of equating themselves entirely with any one aspect they identify with the integrated force of all three.
Most Twenty-Fours indulge in a critical analysis of themselves before forming opinions and judgments of exterior conditions. With a willingness to accept responsibility they do not blame others for their omissions or mistakes. These are qualities among others that help them create enduring friendships and compatible relationships. As their actions and reactions generally can be anticipated, hardly any uncertainties or improbabilities exist in a relationship between Twenty-Four partners. They can be at ease in the knowledge that nothing new, strange, or unexpected will be introduced into their orderly lifestyle. Any change will be brought about gradually and after due consideration, consultation, planning and mutual agreement.
In any social scene they choose to enter Twenty-Fours function as affable personalities with easy and natural social graces. They are mildly extroverted people, with nothing that is artificial in their speech and conduct. Upon entry into a social scene their first preference will be a role of observer to that of participant or actor. Their general conduct is usually moderate and discretionary. They make lasting friendships by showing genuine interest in others and helping them instead of trying to get others interested in them. In other words, they are givers rather than takers. They are not ego-centred people who regard themselves as special or distinct from others. They relate to all age groups while still remaining selective of the company they keep. They would carefully avoid crude, rude, noisy and ill-mannered company. A Twenty-Four couple will acquire social popularity as hospitable hosts and hostesses. As good mixers, who do not overstay their welcome they are equally popular as guests. Twenty-Four partners will not allow social activities to interfere with or disrupt the tranquillity of domestic life. Domestic harmony and care of their dependants will remain their first priority. These are ideal partners for a family-run business. Both are capable of managing a well ordered home as well as running a successful business. The hospitality industry or any business dealing with books, food, clothing and household needs will be best suited to them. As professionals they turn to the teaching, medical and other helping professions. All of us have something to teach but may not be teachers by nature. Twenty-Fours are teachers, demonstrators, coaches and instructors by nature.
A Twenty-Four couple should be able to communicate with each other agreeably on practical, sentimental and mental levels. However, they will remain most at ease on practical matters. Though their love and devotion to each other cannot be doubted, they may not express their feelings and sentiments in so many words or demonstrations. Full expression of their emotions is restricted by undemonstrative qualities of their 4 and 6 vibrations. A certain amount of inner frustration may be felt when their demonstrative 2 aspect seeks an outlet. A rare outburst of emotion followed by regret is quite possible. This could happen more often with others who do not measure up to their high standards of work and conduct. Twenty-Fours are not long-winded talkers. Their speech and body language reflect their relatively unflappable temperaments. Following their practical and realistic nature they choose to act rather than talk. Their speech is brief, factual and unambiguous. They are also patient, sympathetic and impersonal listeners. As mentioned earlier, one of their best assets is the absence of a constantly intruding ego which adds to their ability to listen, understand and help others. Despite a good measure of understanding a Twenty-Four will not always accept or follow ideas put forward by others. They could be quite adamant and argumentative when confronted by inaccurate, misinformed speech and unworkable suggestions made by imaginative or impracticable people. As this is not likely to happen in a Twenty-Four/Twenty-Four partnership, a minimum of words will be needed for them to accept or reject something new.
Being relatively non-competitive people Twenty-Four partners will be attracted to fitness activities rather than highly competitive sport. Apart from certain natural differences between them such as body strength or any unique aspects of temperament their recreational activities and hobbies will not keep them apart. More time will be spent as a team rather than in individual pastimes. Of all the arts and sciences, the art of living will be practiced by this couple. Their free time will be divided between home based duties and hobbies and close community work. Their manual skills and good counsel will be freely available to those who call upon them for help. Due to their receptive nature Twenty-Fours do not actively seek opportunities for service. They need not do so because people in need are naturally attracted to them. Culinary skills are inborn in all Twenty-Fours. Home cooking as well as public demonstration of special dishes may be one of their special pastimes. Many Twenty-Fours emerge as connoisseurs of good food and drink and a Twenty-Four couple will have the added advantage of their combined skills and enthusiasm in this direction. Over-attachment to home, family and community commitments may prevent much travel. In any case, Twenty-Fours are not natural travellers. On the occasions they do go away they keenly look forward to returning home when their holiday draws to a close. Though open to a great variety of life’s opportunities they are always aware of the need to maintain a balance between work, play and relaxation. Nothing will be taken to excess.
Problems with money will not arise in this relationship. The Twenty-Four is a responsible and competent money manager. They are discriminating buyers and cautious investors. As bargain hunters they look for full value for money spent. They will not be persuaded by salespersons to purchase anything they do not need, consider overpriced or of doubtful quality. As the receptive nature of their vibrations is for gathering in and preserving what they have acquired, all Twenty-Fours are collectors, and money will not be an exception. With strict planning and budgeting, expenditure will never exceed income. Financial security is an important aspect of their wellbeing and they seldom, if ever, fall into debt. Not only are they prepared to wait till they can afford luxury items, they also possess the wisdom and patience to sit back and enjoy what they already possess. They do not have the urge to constantly look for more or for unnecessarily updating what they have. They need to make full use of an item before replacing it.
Twenty-Four personalities can be deeply disturbed by turmoil, disagreement, ill feeling, excess of noise and sudden changes. The absence of these discordant elements will be the greatest benefit to a Twenty-Four couple. Certain negative features could also enter into some relationships. There is an element of possessiveness in many Twenty-Fours that could restrict personal freedom of their partners and dependants. Some Twenty-Four couples risk falling into a pattern of life that is too close. Those born in the 4th or 6th months will be more inclined to entertain feelings of ownership and refuse their partners and dependants sufficient space. Inability to share their loved ones with others will create feelings of resentment and jealousy. An unchanging factor in most Twenty-Four/Twenty-Four relationships will be their mutual efforts to follow a peaceful and comfortable lifestyle in an interplay of giving and receiving. Without neglecting personal needs and pleasures, love, duty, service and concern for each other’s welfare and that of their dependants will be foremost in their minds.
24TH AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS
Qualified Six and qualified Seven personalities are formed by the vibrations interacting within these birthdays (2 + 4 = 6 and 2 + 5 = 7). A multiplicity of personality traits and talents will be introduced into a relationship between these individuals. Characteristics of the Twenty-Four are all of a receptive nature, while those of the Twenty-Five are predominantly of an active quality. The attraction of opposites is certain to draw these types together, and should continue to work in their favour. A search for a special relationship may end in many instances with the meeting of Twenty-Four and Twenty-Five personalities. Though opposite temperaments are not always conducive to compatible relationships, as some may be too diverse for reconciliation and acceptance, extreme conditions will not be found between these partners. Their diverse qualities are complementary and unifying rather than contradictory and irreconcilable.
A prominent ego is not an outstanding feature in either of these personalities. They are not so egoistic and self-centred to reject or neglect critical examination of themselves. A false evaluation of their own personality and that of their partners will be prevented by periods of reality checks. As they are able to look within themselves for barriers or elements that may work against them, their chances of compatibility will be greatly enhanced. There will be little need to question each other’s values as both are influenced, more or less, by the same ideological composition.
The three vibrations forming the Twenty-Four personality are the strongest domestic forces. Care of home and family will be the first priority of all Twenty-Fours. Once this is secured they may extend themselves to outer family, their neighbours and close community. Excessive care and possessiveness may be found in those born in the 4th and 6th months. These Twenty-Fours may be too restrained in their habits to suit Twenty-Five partners. All Twenty-Fours automatically take charge of the domestic scene. They resent interference by their partners or other family members in the routine and timetables they set for efficient running of their homes. Most Twenty-Fours are capable of undertaking a dual role of breadwinner or part-time worker and maintaining a well ordered home. In partnership with a Twenty-Five they do not have to fight for or compete for the role of homemaker. Twenty-Five partners will be quite content to surrender this responsibility. Though home lovers themselves, Twenty-Fives are not as attached to or drawn to domestic duties. The result of these different tastes will be a happy and advantageous division of duties. The Twenty-Five’s area of interests will be out of doors. Gardening, general household repairs and care of outdoor pets will be their preserve. Having non-competitive egos it is not in the nature of either to give orders or arbitrarily take charge of any one aspect of their lives. As mutual responsibilities will automatically fall into place, a partnership of equals will be their natural condition. One will not be made to feel subordinate or inadequate by the other. All that Twenty-Fours expect is the knowledge that they have a sympathetic and supportive partner by their side. All Twenty-Fives need is a reasonable amount of space because their temperament is such that they need some time for themselves. The 7 vibration operating in the background is responsible for this desire. Twenty-Fours take time to perform their tasks. Their decisions and actions cannot be hurried. They make up their minds on any matter after careful consideration and consultation. Mistakes are seldom made. Twenty-Fives possess better equipment for immediate decisions, especially in emergencies. Twenty-Fours are likely to follow a chosen occupation until retirement whereas Twenty-Fives could have several changes in their lifetime. They need to engage in a greater variety of roles in life. Following conscientious application of their talents both partners succeed in whatever they undertake.
These are individuals who cannot be strictly classified in terms of extroversion or introversion. They are a happy medium between these states. Their social needs and general conduct in society is an indication of a controlled social life. As home, family, and their professional or business commitments take up a greater part of their time, not much is left for social activity. When Twenty-Fours engage in social interaction they display conservative tendencies. They seek to conform and uphold the established order of society rather than act differently or attempt to change things. Group involvement will be more in keeping with their temperament than prominent roles or solo performances. Despite the limited time they allow for social interaction most Twenty-Fours reach out to the lives of many people in practical ways and as counsellors and confidants. They are, for the most part, undisguised people who present the same face in most circumstances. Many Twenty-Fives prefer to avoid group involvement. They do not possess the same degree of patience and tolerance of different personality types one meets in mixed gatherings. If individuals, neighbours or groups do not meet with their approval they can gladly resort to their own company. Unlike the Twenty-Four they do not present the same face in all circumstances. People are not always relaxed in their presence as they are not as open as is the Twenty-Four. There is a degree of reserve or an enigmatic quality in many Twenty-Fives that prevents them from reaching out as openly to the same range of people. Despite these differences Twenty-Four and Twenty-Five partners are able to handle their social obligations without disagreement. Neither will be influenced by social pressures. For different reasons both feel drained when they have remained too long in company and yearn to get back to their private life.
Their general behaviour in society is reflected directly in their conversation. To begin with, neither is a great talker. In all discussions both prefer to listen before they have their say. As Twenty-Fours project an aura of patience and tolerance they attract people who need to pour out their troubles to someone. Twenty-Fives may give ear only up to a certain point as they are firm believers in self-help. They prefer to see people help themselves rather than constantly reach out to others. Both Twenty-Fours and Twenty-Fives need periods of quietude in their private lives. They are more at ease during well timed periods of silence than with constant talk. An excess of verbosity will never be a source of irritation within their relationship. Conversation between them and with others will not contain attempts to boost or promote their egos. Discussions on any topic will be carried out with a fair degree of objectivity, undemonstrative body language and a good command of facts and figures.
Following their natural instincts, the different hobbies and recreational activities that these partners follow will result in a well-integrated lifestyle. For instance, all Twenty-Fours have an above average fondness for good food and drink. Quality rather than quality governs their taste. Inevitably, they are enthusiastic cooks. Cooking will be a keen and creative hobby and not just a necessary domestic task. Although versatile Twenty-Fives are quite capable of producing an excellent meal they are not naturally drawn into the culinary arts. In any case, those with Twenty-Four partners will find that there is no room for them in the kitchen. As nature lovers they will be quite content with their outdoor interests. A Twenty-Four/Twenty-Five domestic scene will be ideally balanced by their different dispositions. Twenty-Fours may be content to live in a family home for the rest of their lives but Twenty-Fives may want to upgrade their homes. They are able to adjust with greater ease to new ideas and sudden changes. Curiosity is strong in all Twenty-Fives and is limited in the Twenty Four. This is reflected not only in the Twenty-Five’s wider range of local activity but also in their desire for travel. Some amount of persuasion will be needed to get a Twenty-Four out of home and on to the road when a Twenty-Five feels the need for travel. As most Twenty-Fours are non-competitive people, participation in social aspects of sport may be more attractive to them than achieving eminence as competitors. Twenty-Fives enjoy competition up to a point. They are, however, more emotionally involved as players or spectators. Defeat is not accepted with the same equanimity as with the Twenty-Four. Many Twenty-Fives are drawn to solitary pastimes such as gardening, fishing, bushwalking, mountaineering, canoeing and other activities in natural surroundings. They will not find it difficult to persuade their Twenty-Four partners to join them in these activities. Despite their sociable nature there is an aspect in the Twenty-Four personality that is drawn to the peace and quiet of nature.
Twenty-Fours are well known for their frugal habits. Full use of their goods is made before they are replaced. Management of their finances does not escape their frugality. Financial security is essential to their wellbeing. They are discriminating buyers who are not influenced by glossy advertisements or high pressure sales talk. Purchases are made only after they have satisfied themselves of their quality, value and durability. No risks are taken with their investments. In family expenditure a fine balance will be maintained between thrift and generosity. Twenty-Fives are relaxed in their spending habits. They do not suffer the same restraints when they need to purchase goods they desire. They spend on a wider range of goods and amusements but not to an extent that would harm the family budget. There is an inbuilt safeguard that prevents them from going overboard in expenditure. Only calculated risks will be taken by them. Their spending habits may occasionally give their Twenty-Four partners cause for concern but in the long run certain bold moves made by them will be more beneficial than harmful. Twenty-Fives may at times act on impulse but, for the most part, a keen insight enters into all their major transactions.
As mentioned earlier, the Twenty-Four is an emotionally stable personality. Because their moods and responses seldom vary, they can be approached at most times without hesitation or fear of rebuff. Twenty-Fives, on the other hand, do not project the same degree of readiness to accommodate others. There is an element of reserve or distance which is not hostile but private. Their responses may also vary according to their frame of mind. They may often be in a thoughtful or contemplative mood and prefer to be left that way. A Twenty-Four partner, or anyone else for that matter, will need to approach a Twenty-Five when they are out of their private world. Emotions are more active in the Twenty-Five. They usually channel their emotions into some form of physical activity. Their 7 aspect exercises a good measure of control over their emotions but occasional outbursts can be expected, especially when there are interferences or frustrations in their work.
Twenty-Fours can live and work comfortably side by side with their partners but Twenty-Fives need some space for themselves. An arrangement whereby a balance is created between togetherness and space will not be difficult to achieve in this relationship. Both need companionship but need it in different degrees. Twenty-Fours need peace and tranquillity in their living conditions. Twenty-Fives need the same and they also expect time for themselves. Twenty-Fours are often wedded to tradition and wish to keep things unchanged. Twenty-Fives enjoy change. Twenty-Fours are in a better position to deal with conflict or a challenge to their ways without losing emotional balance. Twenty-Fives possess instant reflexes and are in a better position to deal with emergencies. By and large, the combined strengths of these partners help them overcome adversity. These are times when they become most acquainted with each other once they have displayed their innate powers of acceptance, resistance and recuperation.
24TH AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS
The full range of even numbers or receptive vibrations is an obvious feature in this combination of birthdays. Due to like energy attracting like energy, a mutual attraction between Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities will take place for the variety of things they have in common. Awareness of each other’s values, reasoning and general habits will be facilitated by the absence of hidden depths they may need to probe or which may emerge at a later date. These are by no means identical personalities, although widely different and conflicting definitions of life’s phenomena are not likely to enter into their relationship. Minor differences that are certain to arise will not adversely affect a solid foundation.
Due to the double contribution of receptive forces certain disadvantages can also arise in a relationship between these like-minded individuals. Both possess an abundance of such qualities as domesticity, parenthood, guardianship, cooperation, service, consultation, agreeability, tact and diplomacy, peace and harmony, companionship and self-sacrifice. On the other hand, active qualities of imagination, inventiveness, inspiration, enthusiasm, adventure, movement, optimism, sparkle, self-confidence and self-sufficiency may be wanting or deficient. Their situation will no doubt be helped if one or the other possesses an active vibration in the birth month. Yet, the combined forces of their receptive qualities will always predominate. In general, birthdays controlled by active vibrations produce individuals who can be classed as ‘ideas’ persons who use mental creativity to draw up blueprints upon which those controlled by receptive forces can build upon. In other words, active forces produce the thinkers, innovators and originators while receptive forces create builders, workers, engineers and curators.
A Twenty-Four personality, in particular, will be content with an orderly, stable and well defined lifestyle which they set for themselves where change is avoided or minimised. They are leaders by example, not by arbitrary or dictatorial means. The authority of the Twenty-Four is of a non-assertive nature ideally suited for the domestic scene. They would expect their partners and family members to conform to routine and timetables they set for efficient running of their homes. They seldom challenge suggestions and plans made by their partners as long as they are practical, realistic and beneficial to the welfare of home and family. Anything to the contrary will be stubbornly resisted. Their expectations will be willingly met by Twenty-Six partners who are strongly supportive of domestic stability, harmony and comforts. There is, however, a difference in their attitudes and ambitions in regard to domestic and public life. The desire of all Twenty-Fours to establish a comfortable and peaceful domestic scene overrides their aspirations for high achievement in public life. Limits will be placed on their commitment to business or professional life as soon as they see an encroachment upon domestic wellbeing. The Twenty-Six, in contrast, is a qualified Eight personality (2 + 6 = 8). All Eights, whether qualified or not, may allow their ambitions for success in public life to overtake, but not necessarily harm their domestic responsibilities. They are capable of handling the dual role of competent homemaker and main breadwinner. The 8 vibration is the only receptive force that contains certain characteristics of active vibrations. All Eight personalities are natural organisers and administrators on a wide scale. The domestic scene alone will not provide sufficient scope for these talents. While Twenty-Fours may be comfortable in the role of homemaker, Twenty-Sixes, for the most part, become restless and domineering due to frustrated ambitions. Besides high ambitions, the 8 vibration injects qualities such as authority, assertiveness, discipline and the ability to delegate duties. It is a far-sighted and high-powered force. In a qualified Eight such as the Twenty-Six authority and ambition are not as strong as a pure Eight born on the 8th day of the month. A Twenty-Four/Twenty-Six partnership in which the former takes up a greater share of domestic responsibilities and the latter assumes the role of breadwinner will be an ideal situation. The reverse may not be as successful.
Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities are not people who act or make decisions without consultation. When one conceives an idea it is not put into effect without the back up of the other. Both fall into the habit of acting after thinking about consequences. The bonding nature of receptive forces always influences their decisions.
As the dominant traits of these partners are more or less the same, their social needs and general conduct in society will seldom, if ever, fall into conflict. Having natural social graces both acquire social popularity from the friendliness, loyalty, hospitality and service they willingly offer all visitors. Although they are able to relate to all age groups and levels of society their preference will be more for the conservative elements rather than ultra modern circles. They do not adjust easily to innovative social conditions. Strict limits will be placed on social activity so that their social life and regularity of domestic life do not fall out of balance. These are people who can find contentment and joy in each other’s company and also find time to enjoy the company of their choice. It is possible that friends and acquaintances may turn to them for help more often than they do to others. They may not move in a wide social circle and much of their entertainment will be with family members. Family gatherings at home or in public places will always remain the highlight of their social life.
All Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities are natural storytellers. Family history is carefully preserved, and interesting events related at appropriate times, especially to younger members. In general conversation they may not display a high degree of imagination, enthusiasm, and animation, yet they are able to convince each other and their listeners using accurate retention and relation of facts and figures. Critical analysis and sound judgment precedes articulation of their thoughts and opinions. They are calmly-spoken, purposeful and responsive rather than initiative. They are also good listeners who are not easily drawn into argument. The opinions of others are treated with deference but tactfully challenged when illogical and unrealistic views are expressed. Between themselves their thoughts could pass from one to the other without constant speech.
These are individuals who do not suffer from restlessness or idleness. Their free time is used constructively and productively. Their spare time is usually limited due to both being exposed to the risk of turning into workaholics. At the same time, they are people who can get what they want out of life and then sit back and enjoy what they have without constantly looking for more. They are seldom disillusioned because they do not entertain many illusions. Being down-to-earth individuals, they keep in close touch with the practicalities of life, not only in domestic and public life, but also in their hobbies and recreational activities. Their hobbies will be of practical benefit to themselves as well as their neighbours and community. A fair portion of their precious spare time will be given towards voluntary community work. Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities are not natural travellers. Attachment to home and local affairs will always be too strong to take them away from their commitments. Regular holidays will be spent in familiar locations as neither partner will be interested in discovery and adventure. As the nature of receptive forces is to gather in, preserve and accumulate, all Twenty-Fours and Twenty-Sixes are avid collectors. They could range from responsible collectors specialising in certain directions to indiscriminate hoarders. In the domestic scene the kitchen can be taken over by either or shared in friendly competition. This is an ideal partnership for a family run business dealing with food and accommodation. Both possess a good business sense, devotion to duty and willingness to work long hours. Outside help will be needed only for unskilled or semi-skilled duties.
Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities are not risk takers in any aspect of life. This is clearly evident in the management of their finances. A judicious mentality governs all expenditure and investment. As financial security is most essential to their wellbeing spending will not exceed income. Both fear falling into debt or scarcity. As competent and conscientious money managers their bills will be paid on time. Every effort will be made to clear mortgages as early as possible so that they can free themselves from debt. They are bargain hunters who do not hesitate to purchase used items of good quality. Impulsive buying is not part of their nature. Although they gain a reputation as a generous couple with their time and skills they may not do the same with their money and gifts. Those born in the 4th or 6th months could be quite skimping.
Although this relationship may not be as vibrant as one between active partners their greatest advantage, as mentioned earlier, will be the magnetism of common interests and similar values. They are partners who do not inhabit different worlds. Another factor that works in their favour is the willingness of each partner to assume responsibility in whatever they undertake. Their relationship is greatly strengthened by the knowledge that each possesses a dependable and willing partner. Many Twenty-Four and Twenty-Six personalities, unless they possess the number 1 in their birth month, may not enjoy adequate confidence in themselves. They are usually more competent than they think they are. There may be occasions when they allow people with less competence but more determination to get ahead of them in public life. They should compare themselves with others and observe their achievements before passing adverse judgments on themselves. In public life the Twenty-Six may be in a better position to handle competitive situations. Sensitivity and emotion are important aspects of both partners. For the most part, they are able to keep their emotions at an even keel. They may be embarrassed on the rare occasions they lose control of their own emotions or observe exhibitions of emotion by others.
24TH AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS
The 24th and 27th days create multiform personality structures. A relationship between persons born on these days will contain a wide variety of personality traits and talents. In many instances this will be a situation that could create competition, disagreement and misunderstanding. However, a Twenty-Four/Twenty-Seven combination could easily become an exception. Although these are manifestly different personality types there are many astonishing similarities between their fundamental values and general outlook on life. Their greatest advantage is the absence of an emphatic or aggressive ego, or one that is insecure or over-sensitive, or demands constant self-protection. A strong ego is invariably an indication of excessive individuality and separation while a moderate or self-controlled ego tends towards cooperation and bonding. As the latter condition is predominant in these partners it is not in their nature to subdue, subordinate, or dominate anyone, either in private or public life. Both personalities in varying degrees have evolved beyond egoistic and self-centred ways. Unless exceptionally adverse circumstances in their background have damaged the personality of one or the other, this relationship has the potential for enrichment in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms. Not only has each partner a great deal to give to the other but also what is offered will be, for the most part, gladly accepted.
The Twenty-Four is essentially a practical, realistic and pragmatic individual with a keen sense of duty and high moral principles. The mentality of the Twenty-Seven is substantially academic, introspective and questioning. Exploration of their spiritual nature and application of spiritual values becomes a conscious, and often unconscious, part of their thoughts and actions. Both Twenty-Fours and Twenty-Sevens are people who do not pretend to be other than what they are. There are no false facades. Neither will be given reason to feel uncertain or inadequate and both will live up to expectations.
The Twenty-Four is formed wholly by receptive forces spread over physical, emotional and mental levels (2 + 4 = 6). The average Twenty-Four may act and react with a mixture of positive and negative qualities of the 2, 4 and 6 vibrations. Those with the 1 vibration in their birth months will display more positive features. Some of the obvious features of these receptive vibrations are agreeability, cooperation, caution, diplomacy, patience, peace and harmony, hospitality, tolerance, obedience, duty, sensitivity, practicality, romance, service and domesticity. Where there is a repetition of the 2, 4 or 6 vibration in the birth month some negative qualities are likely to enter the personality. Over-sensitivity, lack of self-confidence, self-deprecation, indecision, uncertainty, irrational fear, laziness, disorganisation, possessiveness, dependence and stubbornness are common negative qualities. Many such Twenty-Fours could also, in varying degrees, be disagreeable, ill-mannered, unresponsive and self-seeking. Irrespective of the degree of positive and negative qualities the Twenty-Four’s evaluation of things is based on material and practical considerations.
The Twenty-Seven personality is a composition of one receptive and two active forces (2 + 7 = 9). Qualities of these vibrations are so remarkably similar and corresponding that the integral personality is able to act as an indivisible force. The 7 and 9 vibrations contain the most active spiritual or non-material characteristics introduced by the single digits. Advancement beyond this is seen only in the master vibrations 11 and 22. A personality such as the Twenty-Seven with the combined forces of the 7 and 9 is essentially a spiritually-oriented individual. In modern times the majority may be free thinkers rather than followers of orthodox faiths. Their evaluation and perceptions are generally from an abstract, objective, non-possessive, humanitarian and global standpoint. The 2 vibration, among other things, is a strong psychic force. The receptivity of this vibration to psychic phenomena can be inhibited in some and encouraged in others. Found in combination with the 7 and 9 it has unrestricted opportunities for manifestation. Operating within the Twenty-Four personality it does not have the same freedom due to the doubting and pragmatic nature of the 4 and the mentally analytical nature of the 6. It does, however, provide a small outlet for emotional expression in the Twenty-Four. Although they contain unlimited depths of love, duty and self-sacrifice the 4 and 6 vibrations are not emotionally demonstrative forces. These superior qualities are shown in deeds and not expressive body language.
A Twenty-Four/Twenty-Seven combination will be a popular force in social circles. They conduct themselves in a mild and circumspect manner taking great care not to cause offence with word or deed. They are responsive rather than initiative. More often than not they choose a position from which they could observe conditions before taking an active role. They may not make the first move to acquaint themselves with strangers, nor do they feel the need to make known their presence in company until the necessity arises. People who make an effort to get to know them are seldom disappointed. It is not difficult for others to take the first step due to both partners projecting an aura of warmth, helpfulness and other accommodating qualities. Twenty-Fours are generally conservative people who prefer to move within the established order of society. Many are found among teachers, voluntary workers, counsellors, medical practitioners, ministers of religion and upholders of law and order. Twenty-Sevens do not confine themselves to the conservative elements of society as much as the Twenty-Four. While they could be quite comfortable moving within their Twenty-Four partner’s choice of company they look out for a wider and more varied field of communication. Some of their contacts may be outside conventional circles. Although mundane topics of conversation are not dismissed they could easily become bored and restless when there is an emphasis on material and mercenary affairs. Social involvement will be kept under control by both partners; albeit for different reasons. Twenty-Fours will not permit the domestic scene falling into neglect or disorder due to an excess of social engagements. Twenty-Sevens will not permit their search for inner peace to be disturbed by excessive interaction with people. Their need for solitude or private time is much more pressing than it is in the average person.
Conforming to their essentially down-to-earth and pragmatic mentality the Twenty-Four’s conversation will be confined to facts and figures, usually connected with occupational topics. Their thought processes converted into speech reveal a constructive and functional mentality stronger than an imaginative and inspirational one. All Twenty-Fours are good storytellers and good mimics who retain and accurately relate events of the past. Family history may be one of their special interests. They avoid dealing in intangibles, and stubbornly defend their views on all practical matters. They may often find language inadequate when they try to express their deeper feelings. As the thought processes of the Twenty-Seven often soar into abstract realms their speech reflects a mixture of practical, scholarly and mystical interpretations of life. They may not often demonstrate their emotions even though they are in a better position than is the Twenty-Four to do so, and are not as adamant in their views or as argumentative.
Hobbies and other recreational activities taken up by people invariably disclose their personality type. In this partnership the Twenty-Four’s principal areas of activity will be a workshop, the kitchen and other sections of their home while the Twenty-Seven’s domain will be the garden and a library of books and music. These are not compulsive or forced choices but merely a stronger predisposition for one or the other. All Twenty-Fours invariably display an attraction towards the preparation, display, serving and consumption of food. Cooking could be taken up as a vocation or hobby. They are also firm do-it-yourself types. All home repairs and maintenance will he carried out with the minimum of outside help. A preference for the indoors by the Twenty-Four and for the outdoors by the Twenty-Seven will strike a good balance in their relationship. Twenty-Sevens will also be attracted to study and research in the peace and quiet of a sanctum within their homes. The degree a particular Twenty-Seven indulges in this pastime will depend on family and cultural background. As mentioned earlier, private time is more essential to their wellbeing than to the Twenty-Four. The different directions taken up by these partners are bound to be complementary rather than contradictory. However, an aspect of life that may introduce dissimilarity and the need for understanding will be travel and the choice of holiday destinations. Twenty-Fours are too home based for exploratory travel or for holidays in out-of-the-way places. They look for physical comforts and easy access to well prepared meals. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, are a combination of nature lovers, environmentalists, historians, archaeologists and anthropologists who are willing to undergo the hardships of travel and accommodation for study and exploration purposes.
The gathering, preserving and caring qualities of receptive forces are clearly reflected in the Twenty-Four’s attitude towards money and its uses. All are responsible money managers. They are generous with their time and skills but not always with their money. They could range from well-disciplined spenders to exceptionally tight-fisted individuals. Twenty-Fours usually take over management of family finances. Most Twenty-Sevens possess certain money management skills but they do not share the same definition of thrift and generosity. They are less attached to money for its own sake and much more liberal in their spending habits. Occasional differences of opinion in regard to spending on household needs, saving and social obligations can be expected. The Twenty-Four’s insistence on monitoring daily expenditure can be overcome if this partner is given a free hand in household affairs and the Twenty-Seven contributes advice on larger issues. It may not be too difficult for the Twenty-Seven to surrender the major part of money management to the Twenty-Four, but the reverse situation is not likely to take place.
The initial attraction between these partners is certain to increase with time as their fundamental value systems are not too different. An interchange of psychological endowments and practical talents will take place without the interference of egoistic attitudes or resentments. Different points of view can be used for construction of bridges rather than creation of obstacles. Basically they are individuals who cannot engage in the pursuit of happiness while ignoring the welfare and wellbeing of loved ones. In addition, these are personalities who do not suffer from much inner conflict due to contrary forces operating within their integral personality. Offensive or defensive measures will not be used by either in order to safeguard their individuality. However, a lack of adequate self-confidence and an underrating of their abilities could be a real problem with both. Those who do not possess the 1 vibration in their birth months may suffer from these unnecessary negative traits more than those who do.
24TH AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS
The distinctive features of even numbers or receptive vibrations tend towards compromise, bonding, equality and service, while those of odd numbers or active vibrations favour independence, individuality, authority and freedom. Persons influenced by receptive forces manifest their best qualities in relationships with loved ones. They usually enter into marriage early in life due to their need for closeness and companionship. Those controlled by active vibrations do not seek early relationships, nor do they depend on closeness with a loved one to bring out their best qualities. They can do very well in a single state. When they eventually enter into a relationship they still do not surrender much of their individuality and their need for personal space. The intimacy needed by those controlled by active vibrations is not as strong.
The presence of an extensive range of even numbers in the 24th and 28th combination of birthdays does not necessarily indicate automatic compatibility between Twenty-Four and Twenty-Eight partners. A closer examination will reveal reasons for a different state of affairs. While certain similarities will certainly be found, more fundamental differences will be discovered. Knowledge of these differences will alter first impressions of compatibility. These differences, however, are by no means insurmountable.
The Twenty-Four is a qualified Six personality (2 + 4 = 6). As the integral personality is a unity of receptive forces all Twenty-Fours are free from conflicting elements that could pull them into different directions. They are able to act as a united force thanks to the qualities of the 2, 4 and 6 vibrations enhancing and strengthening while interacting. They are reasonably balanced individuals open to free expression to the physical and mental realms, and in a qualified way, into the emotional realm. The 4 and 6 vibrations do not contain emotionally demonstrative features. Consequently, the emotions of the Twenty-Four personality are not released in demonstrative body language but in devoted service and a variety of artistic expression.
Twenty-Eights are qualified One personalities (2 + 8 = 10 = 1). Their fundamental nature contains all the qualities of the 1 vibration, which is one of the strongest active forces. It is generally known as the activator. This vibration introduces the major difference between Twenty-Four and Twenty-Eight personalities. In addition, the 8 vibration operating in the outer personality of the Twenty-Eight, though falling into the receptive range, contains many attributes similar to active forces. A Twenty-Four/Twenty-Eight relationship will inevitably be an interaction between receptive and active forces. Matters of significance that will emerge in their relationship will be leadership, authority, decision and responsibility. Before long, all Twenty-Four partners will expect a relationship of equals in which decisions are made by mutual consent. On occasions when decisions are made without their consent they may not disagree as long as they meet with their high sense of order, reason and fair play. They are conservative people who choose to live within the established order of society. In private life they will not hesitate to avoid, challenge, or restrict anything that could be contrary to their accustomed ways of caring for home and family. The Twenty-Eight’s nature invariably thrusts them into positions of leadership and decision making. Contrary to the Twenty-Four’s belief that cooperation leads to strengthening of their individuality and their relationships, many Twenty-Eights feel that consultation, sharing or dependence in any way are threats to their individuality. Sharing their lives by working shoulder to shoulder with their partners is natural to the Twenty-Four. The Twenty-Eight’s problem is their inability to share. A clash between the Twenty-Four’s desire to work in cooperation and the Twenty-Eight’s assumption of authority will be problem to be recognised and settled. The Twenty-Eight’s biggest adjustment will be the need to confine their authoritative ways to public life. They should also refrain from interfering with the Twenty-Four’s authority within the home. A tendency to bring worries and stresses of public life into the home should also be overcome. All Twenty-Fours are domesticated individuals, eminently capable of managing all responsibilities relating to home and family. When necessary, they are also capable of assuming a dual role of homemaker and breadwinner or part-time wage earner. Twenty-Eights belong to public life. They become unsettled and frustrated when confined to a homemaking role. For this partnership to succeed the principal breadwinner should be the Twenty-Eight and the Twenty-Four the homemaker. In a reverse situation the Twenty-Four breadwinner may not be able to fulfil the high ambitions of a Twenty-Eight partner.
The social needs of these partners are not as remote. They are not types who constantly look out for experience with new acquaintances and a variety of social interests. Both prefer quality to quantity in their choice of friends and acquaintances. Found in unfamiliar situations Twenty-Fours, due to a natural diffidence, are not likely to introduce themselves and make new acquaintances. However, once they are formerly introduced they reveal themselves as warm and friendly people. They are good listeners prepared to lend a sympathetic ear to what others have to say. They could be objective and balanced in their judgments of people and situations. Though affable and friendly for the most part they could also place limits on demands made upon their time and patience. While Twenty-Eights too are not in the habit of constantly adding to their circle of friends and acquaintances they do not hesitate to introduce themselves when they enter into unfamiliar company. It is not in their nature to remain unnoticed or uncommunicative. While Twenty-Fours are usually happy to merge into a group and play a useful but inconspicuous role, Twenty-Eights actively influence those around them. Their administrative and organisational skills spread into all aspects of life. Twenty-Fours are not without such skills but prefer to channel them into a well-ordered domestic life, and this may be used in social activities when they are invited to do so. Twenty-Fours are usually found in the background as competent and loyal workers.
On a personal level Twenty-Eights are in fact friendly and helpful people, but others find their Twenty-Four partners more accessible. Twenty-Fours project an aura of warmth and comfort that attracts people in need of confidants and counsellors. Twenty-Eights are better in providing advice and practical help in business affairs. Their aura of authority prevents sensitive people from approaching them. Those who are able to penetrate their authoritative style benefit from their high sense of justice, practical knowledge and powers of arbitration. The comfortable and unhurried nature of the Twenty-Four and the high pressure and ambitious nature of the Twenty-Eight can also be observed in their manner of speech. Gifted with patience, understanding and self-discipline Twenty-Fours speak plainly in a style used by parents, guardians, teachers, counsellors and instructors. Their voices do not show much variation in tone, nor is their body language expressive. They are generally unflappable people. Their speech could be somewhat monotonous but never lacking in accuracy. Flamboyant speech, an excessive use of words and phrases and demonstrative body language are seldom observed in the Twenty-Four. The Twenty-Eight’s mode of speech has many similarities with that of the Twenty-Four. They too adhere strictly to facts and figures. They do not indulge in highly imaginative, ambiguous or double meaning speech. But the difference between these partners is clearly seen in their manner of delivery. As leaders rather than followers the Twenty-Eight’s speech reflects authority and decision. While Twenty-Fours are open to interrogation as long as it is not done for argument’s sake or frivolity, Twenty-Eights do not expect to be challenged or overruled. Their manner of speech can contribute to success in public life but will not be suited for amicable interaction in private life. A modification will be needed in their dealings with loved ones.
Recreational activities chosen by these partners will reflect the generally non-competitive nature of the Twenty-Four and the competitive nature of the Twenty-Eight. Twenty-Fours are team players while Twenty-Eights are competitors, motivators and captains. While both are free to choose from a variety of sport and other hobbies Twenty-Fours are more likely to divide their time between a particular sport and other home based hobbies such as cooking, carpentry, vegetable and fruit growing and voluntary community work. Twenty-Eights are likely to pay more attention to sport over a long period of time. Once their playing days are over they prolong their interest as supporters, coaches, umpires and administrators. Much more enthusiasm and passion enters into their efforts. They set out to win and could be quite distraught when they lose or when a team they support loses. As coaches they could be quite severe on players who do not measure up to their high standards. Twenty-Fours, on the other hand, enjoy participation as much as they would enjoy winning. They are in a better position to take an objective attitude towards winning or losing. While always doing their best they do not put in as much emotion and pride into their efforts. Their egos do not demand as much as the egos of the Twenty-Eight.
Twenty-Eights are also capable of taking up many home based hobbies in association with their Twenty-Four partners. Their practical skills could be as good as or better than those of the Twenty-Four. But many do not find the time to do so due to their many public commitments. Twenty-Fours will not allow their outside interests to interfere with their private hobbies and domestic responsibilities. Being home-oriented people they are also indifferent travellers. Apart from regular holidays spent at familiar locations they show little interest in adventuresome travel, unless influenced by other areas within their personality. They are not restless or discontented people who need to frequently get away from home and work. Twenty-Eights can be classed as keen travellers but their wishes are seldom satisfied due to heavy involvement in public duties. They need to make a considerable effort to get away from their attachment to their responsibilities. Travel may often be confined to their business or official duties. On the rare occasions when time is available for private travel they are bold and enterprising in their choice of holiday sports. Once on holiday they do not look forward to returning as they are able to divorce themselves from home and work. Twenty-Fours, on the other hand, feel a strong homing call and are keen to return home towards the end of their holidays.
A sound financial position will always be a feature of this relationship. Both partners are competent money managers. The Twenty-Four’s first priority will always be domestic security. Management of household expenditure is invariably undertaken by them. They are also skilled in management of the financial side of business, especially those dealing with food, accommodation, household products, education and clubs of any sort. No risks are taken in expenditure and investment. They are types who start from small beginnings and expand at a cautious but steady pace. As they constantly endeavour to maintain balance in their lives limits are usually placed on expansion. Most Twenty-Eights will willingly agree to handing over household finances to the Twenty-Four in the knowledge that it will be done competently. Twenty-Eights are more suited for management of corporate or public money as financiers, stockbrokers, accountants and financial advisers. In private life they tend to spend on a more generous scale. While Twenty-Fours tend to economise and take no risks, Twenty-Eights are bolder spenders prepared to take calculated risks. Twenty-Fours can fit comfortably into moderate conditions of affluence but the Twenty-Eight’s ambitions reach out to higher levels.
Twenty-Fours have a laid-back attitude towards life, which may at times irritate the highly energetic and ambitious style of the Twenty-Eight. The prominent ego of the Twenty-Eight tempts them to feel different or better than others and therefore worthy of better things. The Twenty-Four’s milder ego looks across to others feeling equal to them. As mentioned earlier, Twenty-Eights fancy being regarded as the head of the household. As long as they adopt a benign attitude, most Twenty-Fours will not challenge this role. Twenty-Fours need to feel that they have a strong partner to fall back on when firm decisions need to be made without delay. There is a conflicting or ambivalent feature in the personality of the Twenty-Eight which needs to be recognised and adjusted. They are people who can delegate authority by unerringly picking the right person for the right task. At the same time, they choose to do things themselves imagining that others are not as competent as they are. This latter problem should not arise with a competent Twenty-Four partner. While Twenty-Fours often examine their motives and their impact on others, Twenty-Eights are less inclined towards self-analysis.
24TH AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS
A continual process of getting to know each other is a task to be undertaken by all couples engaged in an intimate relationship. Some who overlook this necessity due to self-satisfied or complacent ways sooner or later meet with unpleasant surprises. Twenty-Four and Twenty-Nine partners happily possess attributes that enable them to reach out to each other and achieve a condition of mutual understanding, acceptance and appreciation of their different temperaments, values and needs. The vibratory forces that meet and mingle in this combination increasingly favour success in their efforts. The longer these partners are together the more they would appreciate and admire each other. Their greatest advantage will be the absence of pressures brought about by a prominent ego that needs to take command over others, or an insecure ego that needs constant boosting. There is a quality about their egos that is neither dominant nor subservient. They neither look down on, nor up to people, instead looking across to them. In other words, all persons are treated as equals. A Twenty-Four/Twenty-Nine relationship will be a representation of these qualities.
Twenty-Four personalities are an augmentation of three receptive forces derived from the physical, emotional and mental planes. On the one hand, their strength lies in a harmonious interaction of the qualities of the 2, 4 and 6 vibrations (2 + 4 = 6). On the other hand, the absence of active forces may account for certain inadequacies. But this could often be a matter of opinion. A laid-back and often easygoing attitude towards life as opposed to a speedy, decisive and ambitious lifestyle followed by those influenced by active vibrations will be an example. A Twenty-Four partner’s fundamental need will be a peaceful and well ordered domestic life. All other ambitions will be subordinated to this end. Cooperation, consultation, togetherness, equality, loyalty, unselfish service, and above all, love and devotion to their family are hallmarks of the Twenty-Four’s temperament. Their personality structure is a fine balance between practicality, rationality, love and devotion. Some Twenty-Fours, however, may not be free from certain negative elements such as stubbornness, petty-mindedness, possessiveness, parsimony, and over-attachment to money and material possessions. Those having the 4, 6 or 8 vibrations in their birth months could be subject to some of these negative features. Despite the multiple facets provided by their birthday the Twenty-Four is not a complicated individual. There is an openness about their personality that is easily understood. This cannot be said with assurance about the Twenty-Nine.
The personality of the Twenty-Nine is heavily influenced by the 9 vibration. This is a comprehensive force that contains qualities of all the vibrations symbolised by single digits. All persons influenced by it possess a range of thought and action beyond those influenced by other vibrations. The characteristics of the 9 are an uneven assemblage of active and receptive forces operating from the mental plane. Altruistic and spiritual elements have been intensified at the expense of practical, earthly and mundane features. In addition, the Twenty-Nine benefits from the qualities of master vibration 11 operating within the personality (2 + 9 = 11). The 2 vibration common to both partners is a highly sensitive force open to extrasensory perception. Clairvoyance and related faculties manifest only in peaceful and compliant conditions. Found in conjunction with the down-to-earth, pragmatic and doubting qualities of the 4 and the argumentative and realistic qualities of the 6 they are either denied or relegated to the background. But found alongside the 9 they manifest without obstruction. Its presence in the Twenty-Nine reinforces an attraction to non-material aspects of life but has little or no effect on the Twenty-Four. This could be a major difference between these partners. Needless to say, this may not be a firm division as other areas of their birth dates, names and family background may introduce changes. However, the Twenty-Four’s pragmatic and utilitarian temperament and the Twenty-Nine’s studious and speculative mentality should act as complementary features rather than those that may be contradictory. The Twenty-Four may not have the same urge to reach the spiritual heights aspired to by the Twenty-Nine but they possess certain sympathetic qualities such as a peaceful nature, charity, hospitality, benevolence, compassion, idealism and honesty that merge harmoniously with the Twenty-Nine’s humanitarian qualities. While Twenty-Nines introduce ideas, Twenty-Fours provide censorship and practical application.
A partnership in which the Twenty-Four settles into the role of homemaker and the Twenty-Nine as the breadwinner will be an ideal arrangement. These are natural roles for these personality types. A reverse situation may not be as successful. The welfare and wellbeing of loved ones and the comfort and security of their homes will always remain the Twenty-Four’s first priority. Although they are quite capable of assuming the task of breadwinner, or the dual role of homemaker and breadwinner their temperaments are unsuited for the rush and speed needed for contented performance of both roles. They are not flexible people who revel in doing several things at the same time and would rather concentrate their energies in special areas of responsibility, needing order, routine and timetables. In business or professional life they usually set limits on their ambitions. Their principal aim is to concentrate on a balanced lifestyle. Twenty-Nines, in contrast, allow themselves to be carried away by social commitments and professional responsibilities at the expense of a close domestic life. This could be a conflicting element in their personality as all Twenty-Nines also possess a love for home and family. However, as career-oriented people, they grow restless and demanding when confined solely to domestic duties. Although they achieve success and fame in professional life their ambitions may not be directed towards high achievement in material wealth and power over others. In the event of these partners entering into a family business the Twenty-Four will need to take over all matters relating to the financial side due to business acumen not being strong in the Twenty-Nine. They are too trusting and generous to succeed in business unless they have the support of a pragmatic partner such as a Twenty-Four. Public relations is their forte. Final decisions in regard to buying and selling should be left to the Twenty-Four.
The social needs and preferences of these partners are not too different from those that are domestic and occupational. Twenty-Fours are sociable and hospitable people, but they do place limits on their sociability and hospitality. Governed by their love of a well organised and peaceful home life they will not permit social commitments to interfere with family welfare and wellbeing. As guests they will not be found overstaying their welcome. They are conservative people seldom interested in extending their circle of friends and acquaintances. Many Twenty-Fours will be quite content to confine their social life to family circles and a few old and trusted friends. Twenty-Nines, on the other hand, need an ever widening circle of friends and acquaintances. Fine social graces are inherent in all Twenty-Nines. While Twenty-Fours are popular in society for the practical help they willingly provide, Twenty-Nines acquire popularity as entertainers, confidants and counsellors. They go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. No matter how busy they may be they make time to comfort and help people in need, often at the expense of time needed for their own home and family. Twenty-Four partners may have to remind them of the need to set aside time for family togetherness. The difference between these partners is basically the Twenty-Nine’s enjoyment of company and the Twenty-Four’s enjoyment of work. Twenty-Nines are able to put up with a variety of habits or eccentricities found in friends and acquaintances but Twenty-Fours are less inclined to tolerate too many peculiarities.
As conversationalists these partners share many features in common. The hallmark of a good conversationalist is the ability to pay attention to what others have to say. Both Twenty-Fours and Twenty-Nines are endowed with this quality. Another significant characteristic that contributes to their success in conversation is the absence of ego-centred speech. In other words, neither partner is likely to take over conversation, expounding on their own affairs to the annoyance of their listeners. A difference in temperament, however, can be seen in the Twenty-Nine’s ability to draw people into conversation and the need for the Twenty-Four to be drawn into conversation. Both prefer discussion to argument, but some Twenty-Fours could be drawn into argument when faced with irrational and unrealistic views. As there is much more logic in their mental processes they are able to stick to the point in discussions and not digress into irrelevancies. As Twenty-Nines are more imaginative and less down-to-earth, they may be carried away by emotion, exaggeration and the desire to create an element of drama. Twenty-Fours think before they speak and seldom need to retract what they have spoken. Twenty-Nines are spontaneous speakers who may not always adhere to strict facts and figures. Twenty-Fours are slow and deliberate in speech while Twenty-Nines are fast speakers who are subject to a flood of thoughts which are often given out before they are censored.
All Twenty-Fours are gifted with a wide range of manual skills. Their hands and fingertips are a combination of high sensitivity and corporal strength. This combination enables them to handle the most delicate instruments as well as heavy and bulky equipment. These advantages will be used not only in their vocations but also in their several hobbies All home maintenance and improvements will be undertaken by this partner, resulting in a considerable saving of expenditure. A fully equipped workshop will be their preserve. The kitchen will be another area in which the Twenty-Four will exercise control. Fondness for good food and natural expertise in cooking are qualities all Twenty-Fours are gifted with. In addition, the 4 aspect of their personality creates an affinity with the earth and its products. The Twenty-Four’s hobbies will also include vegetable and fruit growing, fishing, fossicking for gold and precious stones and other earth related pastimes. As team spirit is much stronger than a competitive spirit they enjoy participation and sharing of their accomplishments. They are natural teachers, coaches, umpires and referees. Nature’s gifts to the Twenty-Nine are of a different variety. Manual skills they may possess are not inherent but acquired through practice and hard work. Being mentally and spiritually-oriented people their free time will be spent among books, music, study groups and in meditative practices in natural surroundings. While Twenty-Fours could easily follow an established or orthodox faith, the Twenty-Nine’s spirituality is not usually manifested through religious institutions. As free thinkers they are perennial students of life and its inner meaning. They are also nature lovers. Beauty is more inspirational to them than productivity. A flower garden will be more attractive than a fruit and vegetable garden. Their interest in sport is not likely to be long lasting. Their non-competitive nature and distaste for body contact reduces their choice of sporting activity. Human relations is much more attractive to them than is physical activity. They give out their best in close friendships and, as mentioned earlier, as confidants, counsellors, teachers at tertiary levels and simply as friends in need. Twenty-Four and Twenty-Nine partners should find their different tastes and habits complementary rather than contradictory. However, travel and holiday making may be an aspect of life in which different preferences will need reconciliation before mutual benefits can be enjoyed. Being home-oriented people Twenty-Fours are not travellers. They are quite content to spend regular holidays at familiar locations and return home at an appointed time. Unscheduled or impromptu movement is much against their nature. Twenty-Nines on the other hand, having a larger view of life, are keen travellers. While Twenty-Fours usually look for comfort and proximity to modern conveniences, Twenty-Nines are happy to put up with discomfort and inconvenience in their search for knowledge and experience.
The financial side of this partnership will be one in which different values will be most apparent and difficult to reconcile. Conflicting needs may constantly interfere in day-to-day larger issues. Twenty-Fours are cautious and responsible money managers. Their general wellbeing depends to a large extent on financial security. They are, therefore, careful spenders and safe investors, and no risks are taken with their money. Expenditure will not exceed income and all bills will be paid on time. They are bargain hunters who look for value for money spent. Never wasteful of their possessions they make full use of them before replacements are made. The knack of sitting back and enjoying what they possess instead of constantly seeking more is a unique quality in all Twenty-Fours. Twenty-Nines display an opposite attitude towards money and its uses. They could range from generous to over generous people who could easily be prevailed upon to part with their money. Salespersons cannot influence a Twenty-Four but could succeed with a Twenty-Nine. They are lavish spenders because money is regarded as something to be spent and not as a form of security. Expenditure on personal items such as clothing will always be more than that of a Twenty-Four. Their optimistic attitude towards money will always remain in sharp contrast to the Twenty-Four’s cautious habits. A partnership in which the Twenty-Nine hands over to the Twenty-Four a greater responsibility for management of their finances will enjoy financial stability and all the good things of life on a regular basis. There will be no highs and lows in their financial position, a situation that could happen if the Twenty-Nine is in charge.
The main advantage in this relationship is the fact that both partners have it in their nature to think about ways and means to help each other. Selfishness is not part of their nature. The best way they can help each other is to make certain personal adjustments instead of expecting the other to do so. Twenty-Fours will need to emerge from some of their strict timetables and systematic ways in order to cope with some of the Twenty-Nine’s enterprising activities. A richness of experience that they would not have enjoyed on their own will be their reward. They could also help by not analysing, dissecting and finding reasons for everything they do. They could benefit from the faith the Twenty-Nine places in life. The Twenty-Nine needs to curb to some degree excessive impatience, impulsiveness and a restless nature. A settled state of mind in a family atmosphere of peace and tranquillity will be their reward.
24TH AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 3rd and 24th 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.
24TH AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS
The relationship between a person born on the 24th day and another born on the 31st day will be the same as that between a couple where one is born on the 24th 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-Four personality.
The chapter on 13th and 24th birthdays should be consulted.
