6TH AND 6TH BIRTHDAYS
Beginning at stage 1 and completing at the 9th, the spectrum of digits from 1 to 9 symbolises processes or stages of evolution. During each stage specialised experience is gained in various divisions of the physical, emotional and mental realms. The 6 vibration, along with the 3 and 9, symbolises three stages of growth in the mental plane. Thought processes of individuals guided by these forces are focused on mental activities as opposed to the earthly and practical orientation of those governed by the physical vibrations 1, 4 and 7 or the emotionalism of the 2, 5 and 8. The 3 vibration is essentially a vibration of youth or adolescence. It is also a strictly individualistic and self-conscious force. The 6 is, in essence, a vibration of responsibility, parenthood and guardianship. The ego of the Six personality has emerged from individuality and egocentricity into a larger arena of family and community consciousness. The 9 represents maturity and wisdom. The Nine’s consciousness spreads even further into impersonal and worldwide perspectives.
The 6 is the only receptive vibration of the mental trio. Unlike the energetic and precipitate temperament of subjects controlled by active vibrations, the 6’s receptive qualities, working through mental channels, create a temperament of balance, harmony and peace. Pure Sixes such as those born on the 6th day are not known for characteristics of haste, impetuosity, excitement, unpredictability, noise, changeability, unreliability and disorder. Although their mental orientation neutralises a good deal of emotional expression they are in fact warm, loving and lovable people. Mental appreciation and enjoyment of all the fine and beautiful things of life is a unique feature of all Six people. They are the true connoisseurs of all forms of fine art, literature, poetry and music. They are thoughtful people not given to expressing either pleasure or displeasure with much vehemence. They move slowly and unobtrusively taking care to avoid treading on anyone’s toes. As friendly and extroverted people they depend on companionship and social intercourse for self-development and self-expression. The institution of marriage, home and family life is their natural state. Consequently, Sixes cannot and do not lead solitary or celibate lives. Intimate relationships formed by people with odd numbered birthdays are not as harmonious as those with even numbered birthdays. They are too individualistic and temperamental to adjust and adapt willingly to a two-way partnership. Even numbered partners do so spontaneously. A sympathetic attunement between Six people will develop as naturally as leaves to a tree. However, as nothing of a significant nature happens suddenly to a Six, shared experiences, intimacy and an appreciation of each other will develop over a period of time. In a Six/Six partnership both positive and negative Six characteristics will be emphasised. In the latter instance neither partner will be able to help the other overcome the negative trait of anxiety peculiar to Six people which damages much of the quality of life. The Six is also prone to suspicion, jealousy, possessiveness, fear of loneliness, over-attachment to domestic affairs and over-dramatisation of minor incidents. For the Six to be positive the birth month should contain the ego-strengthening 1 vibration which supplements the basic personality formed by the birthday with qualities of self-confidence, self-assertiveness, initiative, courage and decision. This vibration may be operating in other areas of influence but these areas are not as effective as the birth month. A pair of positive Sixes will form an ideal partnership as negative aspects of their vibration will be held down to a bare minimum. In the unhappy event of both being negative personalities very little fun and frivolity or ‘joie de vivre’ will enter their lives. While positive Sixes see good in all people and things their negative counterparts take on opposite views. Negative Sixes often experience periods of unaccountable melancholy and pessimism during which they could entertain many weird thoughts. Negativity in one partner is sufficient to cause the partnership to flounder as the negative partner will be a constant drag on the positive partner’s attempts to enliven their lives.
The Six is the most domesticated of all personality types. As single persons they lead well-planned and organised lives. On entering a relationship or marriage their foremost priority will be the establishment of an orderly, comfortable and peaceful home life. Public duties will not be allowed to interfere with domestic cares as their unflappable temperament helps them to cope with both aspects of life. In domestic as well as public life Sixes rule by example rather than by direct orders or autocratic leadership and abide by a strong moral code. They do best as professionals who rely on their natural skills to acquire fame and wealth. Secure and responsible middle order positions are usually held by Six providers. In a Six/Six partnership either one or both could remain in the work force without fear of disorganisation of their domestic life or feelings of rivalry. They are quite adept at working out arrangements and compromises.
Sixes seldom become victims of fashion nor do they expose themselves to the vagaries of social prominence. Overlooking age barriers and projecting an aura of warmth and accessibility their aim is to promote goodwill and friendship. As group conscious individuals they make a worthwhile contribution to the community. Consequently, the social life of Six partners will be as pleasantly integrated as their home life. They are usually sought after as confidants, counsellors and teachers, or as storytellers, mimics and after dinner speaker. Hospitality is another prominent trait in all Sixes. They prefer to entertain at home rather than be entertained in the homes of friends and relatives. They are usually short-term visitors who never overstay their welcome. Without exception, Sixes are fond of good food and drink. However, a Six may over-indulge in food but not always will they over-indulge in drink. Many become experts in the culinary arts. Dining out in congenial company at elite restaurants will be a highlight in a Six’s social life. A compatible social life enjoyed by Six couples is always subject to the degree of positivity or negativity in their temperaments.
Most Sixes are soft spoken, kindly and genial conversationalists, maintaining at the same time a logical sequence in whatever they discuss. Meaningless chatter is certainly not a Six characteristic. Their readiness to listen and give genuine consideration to what others have to say and offer helpful opinions is their most attractive characteristic. People who do not make a clear analysis of matters under discussion are often trapped into argument with a Six who can engage in argument without emotional reaction. They hold a clear advantage over emotionally controlled individuals. They do not intrude, patronise or dominate conversation yet, they contribute their share adding a lively sense of victimless humour. Between themselves Six partners will not lack topics of conversation. They enjoy weighing the pros and cons of a matter rather than jumping to quick conclusions. Periods of silence will be observed by mutual consent as they are not obsessive talkers but are thinkers as well.
Leisure activities which often lead partners into different directions will have the opposite effect on a Six couple. Provided their cultural background is relatively similar their taste in music, art, drama and literature will provide a great deal of mutual pleasure. Six personalities are not travellers or adventurers. Most of their spare time activities will be home based. Physical comfort and mental relaxation are much more attractive states than energetic and often stressful activities away from home. Social service is the exception to the rule in this case. Sixes are natural helpers, healers and teachers and those who are not in full-time employment will voluntarily offer their time and skills to religious, welfare and sporting organisations.
Financial security is essential to the wellbeing of the Six individual. Their feelings of anxiety and foreboding are intensified in conditions of insecurity, especially when their position as protectors of hearth and home is endangered. A Six couple, however, will work diligently and cooperatively to ensure a stable and prosperous financial position. They are cautious and responsible money managers who look for quality rather than quantity in their acquisitions. They steer clear of risky undertakings and all forms of serious gambling. Although self-indulgent in physical comforts and cultural pleasures personal expenses will not be allowed to exceed income.
Love is the foundation of the Six personality structure Their love for each other and all others is not usually displayed by a great show of emotional expression but by depth of true devotion, unselfishness loyalty, and willing service. A Six would not expect a partner to do anything they would not do themselves. While their devotion to each other may be most pleasurable their tendency to smother their loved ones with too much attention may evoke adverse reactions from a family member who needs room for individual growth. The one aspect of life in which the rational mind of the Six fails to function is when they entertain feelings of jealousy and possessiveness. This is quite unnecessary in this Six/Six partnership as the Six is not a promiscuous individual. Their jovial and sociable ways should not be taken for promiscuity. They are far too attached to home and family to endanger this institution through any form of wayward behaviour. Every moment of a Six partner’s time can be fairly accounted for.
6TH AND 7TH BIRTHDAYS
The general personality structure of an individual with a single digit birthday is, for the most part, bound by the qualities of a single vibration. Relative to the number or vibration of the birthday this condition usually creates a well-defined personality type having the advantages and disadvantages of centralised personality traits. The obvious advantage is the power of concentrated expression within a particular vibratory rate, while the obvious disadvantage is insufficient flexibility and adaptability to conditions outside its sphere of expression. No doubt, the vibrations of the birth month, and to a lesser degree the birth year, may provide other facets to the personality which reduces one-sided behaviour in many instances. Vibrations from the name, particularly the given name, may do the same. However, these areas of influence could also repeat the birthday vibrations causing an overloading of a single set of characteristics, which inevitably turn to negative expression. Persons with single digit birthdays could therefore experience real difficulty adjusting to partners whose vibrations are not in harmony with their own. The problem is greater when both partners have odd numbered birthdays. A sense of equality and a spirit of cooperation are not as prevalent in these people as in those with receptive vibrations or even numbered birthdays.
Six and Seven personalities born on the 6th and 7th days respectively are among the more fortunate couples who can avoid some of these hazards. The vibratory forces of this odd/even combination operate on different planes of expression which have the effect of inspiring and evoking reciprocal thoughts and actions that intermingle with increasing affinity as time progresses. Sixes and Sevens are drawn to each other as much by their opposite traits as by their affinities. A significant fact is that neither individual is fenced in or weighed down by egoistic desires. Both have reached a stage in the evolutionary path where excessive ego consciousness and self-centredness have been reduced and replaced by the capacity to view life with a degree of objectivity. As their egos are sufficiently expanded to transfer attention from themselves into a wider spectrum of life they are in a better position to take a deeper interest in their environment and in the nature of things.
The 6 vibration is a purely mental force and all Six persons are guided by mental perception and mental evaluation of all realities. It is also a receptive vibration of a non-aggressive nature. Qualities of calmness, harmony, balance, system and order, characteristic of all receptive forces, influence the thoughts and actions of all Sixes. The 7 is an active force based on the physical plane. It is, however, not the same as other vibrations operating on the physical plane. While retaining the practicality and earthly connections characteristic of the 1 and 4, it is also motivated by the spiritual element of humankind to a deeper degree than any other vibratory force. As a combination of earthliness and spirituality the 7 is recognised as a unique and enigmatic force. A clear Seven personality is usually a mystery to the casual observer. Plain physical, material and commercial criteria cannot be applied when anticipating the thoughts and actions of a Seven. Aggressive, competitive and acquisitive traits of predominantly worldly vibrations have been diverted by a pull towards introspective and contemplative pleasures, the enjoyment of nature and the acquisition of abstract knowledge. A unique feature of Sevens, provided they are not severely negative, is that practical duties are not neglected or sacrificed by their interests in metaphysical aspects of life. They are completely competent and resourceful people who work with a sense of detachment and indifference to personal glory, power and material possessions.
Conspicuous by their absence in a Six/Seven partnership are displays of emotionalism, sensationalism and melodrama. Fixed on the mental and physical planes neither partner has freedom of expression in the emotional plane. Neither partner will have the natural ability to give spontaneous expression to their feelings or put on a show of sentimentality when they do not feel inclined to do so. Therefore, neither of the two will expect this display from each other. Other meaningful ways will be used to express tenderness and love. Sixes are family, group and community conscious individuals who identify with and devote themselves to the welfare and wellbeing of that portion of the human family, however small, that falls within their sphere of activity. The Seven is a private and reserved individual whose natural bent is the path of the loner engaging in impersonal inquiry, analysis and contemplation of the nature and destiny of humankind.
The ultimate success of a Six/Seven partnership will depend on the degree of positivity or negativity in each partner. When both are essentially positive by nature success is assured. However, when negative tendencies are predominant in one or both an uphill battle lies ahead. Arguments will be frequent as negativity brings out stubbornness and dogmatism as well as the lack of self-esteem and self-confidence in both personalities. When mental vibrations (3, 6, 9) are repeated in the birth month Sixes usually tend towards negativity. They could brood and despair over most things in life and become nagging, ever-possessive, jealous and suspicious people preoccupied with their imaginary worries. They act as petty dictators in the domestic scene if the 6 is repeated in the birth months. Sevens turn to negativity only when the 7 is repeated in the birth month. These Sevens are introverted people who take to day-dreaming and other forms of escape from practical realities. They are distrusting and secretive people who project a cold and insensitive image. For a clear indication of positivity in Sixes and Sevens the 1 vibration should be present in the birth month. This vibration acts as a pilot that holds the individual on a steady and self-confident course using all the positive aspects of the birthday vibration. Found in the birth year and the name the 1 vibration will still guide the personality in certain positive ways but not as confidently as when it operates as the birth month vibration.
Assuming that neither partner suffers from a severe form of negativity a Six/Seven partnership will settle into a happy compromise in all aspects of life. An unseemly clamour for the position of sole authority will not take place as both can subordinate individual demands for the good of the partnership. They are certain to get down to the realities of living as soon as their formal honeymoon is over, but the golden thread of romance will remain undiminished in their intimate relations. As they will be more than happy to meet each other halfway, conditions in their household will never be at ‘sixes and sevens’, as the saying goes. The nature loving Seven will automatically take charge of the garden while the house loving Six will take over house work and home beautification. The surest way to disorient Sevens is to keep them away from their natural element of flowers, plants and trees, and the surest way to disorient Sixes is to keep them away from home. As peace, harmony and tranquillity are indispensable elements for the wellbeing of both Sixes and Sevens they will combine effortlessly to establish an environment conducive to self-development, and the prompt restoration of balance and harmony that may become disturbed by circumstances beyond their control. Quality living rather than a great variety of experiences is sought after by both. They can enter the workforce as dual wage earners without neglecting their share of domestic duties. Domesticated Sixes care for their home by force of nature and non-domesticated Sevens through a high sense of responsibility and the need for a haven of refuge from the strife and turmoil of the business world. An ideal situation will be for the Seven to remain as the principal provider and the Six the secondary or part-time worker. Both personality types succeed better as teachers, research workers and professionals rather than as business people. Their high ideals and strict moral values prevent them from entering into hardhearted and often unprincipled business dealings. Those who do enter business are content with a modest measure of success achieved without harm to others or compromise of their principles.
The social life of these partners will reveal differences between the genial and accessible personality of the Six and the reserved and aloof temperament of the Seven. These differences will help the relationship rather than cause dissension. Unless there is a bad case of negativity neither partner will resort to intolerable forms of introversion or unsociability. With the blessings of the Seven the roles of entertainer and host will be taken up by the Six. The Seven will thus be able to gradually break through their customary reserve in their own time. They become inwardly agitated when people or social situations are imposed on them or when they are deprived of a conscious choice of company and activity. Unlike group conscious Sixes who are able to identify themselves with collective enterprises, Sevens tend to avoid situations where different types of men and women gather. They tend to view social situations and socially addicted people with a tinge of suspicion and cynicism. Individual levels of tolerance between Sixes and Sevens differ to the extent that Sevens are unable to suffer fools gladly or tolerate any form of pretension or hypocrisy, but Sixes can overlook such frivolities. Following their introspective tendencies Sevens can do without constant company. They can differentiate between loneliness and aloneness and enjoy their own company while Sixes are gregarious and companionable people who are disturbed by isolation and aloneness.
The analytical mind of both Sixes and Sevens habitually weigh the pros and cons of a matter before acting. Most Sixes verbalise their thoughts and create discussion, debate and friendly argument before they arrive at a conclusion. Sevens, being the least talkative of all personality types find no need to talk things over. They prefer to work out their problems in silence. Once they have made up their minds or solved a problem they make known their views in a few well chosen and meaningful words. This habit may be disappointing to the communicative Six partner who may find it well-nigh impossible to draw the Seven into protracted discussion. Sevens are not only lazy talkers but they find it difficult to put many of their abstract ideas into words. Consequently, they become adept at resorting to non-verbal conversation to communicate with their intimates. Found in a social situation that calls for sustained conversation the Seven partner will be greatly relieved to hand over the task to their willing Six partners. Body language used by both partners is much less expressive than that of emotionally oriented individuals. A momentary touch which has the magnetic effect of breaking down barriers, increasing receptivity and emotional response in all sentimental beings is seldom used. However, on rare occasions when Sixes and Sevens do reinforce their speech with the magic communication of touch all reservations are lifted and replaced by instant response. The rarity in the use of this means of communication naturally increases its effect.
While Sixes and Sevens happily do things as a twosome some of their hobbies will vary according to their different temperaments. However, there are too many values in common in this relationship for either to take up a hobby that will separate them or become an emotional or financial drain on the partnership. Apart from community service in which many Sixes get involved, most of their hobbies are home based. The culinary department will be their exclusive territory just as the garden will belong to the Seven. The complementary efforts of the Six to beautify the home and the Seven’s passion for gardening, will result in a well appointed residence that could be the pride of their locality. While reaping the advantages of indoor interests of one and outdoor interests of the other, further enjoyment will be experienced through a mutual interest in a wide range of literature and music. While the mind of the Six personality does not proceed beyond logical analysis of everyday matters and acceptance of conventional norms, the nature of the Seven transcends everyday affairs and traditional boundaries to delve into the mysterious and unknown. While the Six is usually content to follow orthodox religious customs the Seven is invariably drawn to heterodox practices. As good team members the Six will participate in team sport but Sevens will avoid team games preferring solitary pastimes such as fishing, birdwatching, canoeing, bushwalking and fossicking for precious stones and metals. The more academic types may seclude themselves in libraries or dig in archaeological sites or engage in research projects.
Through their own efforts these partners may not acquire great wealth in terms of money and material possessions; however, their financial position will be quite substantial as both possess a good sense of values, skills at money management and priorities that are much the same. Both can be trusted to put the needs of loved ones before their own. Material possessions, personal power and popularity will have their place in the scheme of things but both partners can see them in proper perspective. High ideals and spiritual values will be weighed against purely materialistic ways. With the potential to realise that happiness is found by limiting desires and not by increasing possessions both have the capacity to sit back and enjoy what they have and not burden themselves with excess baggage or the running after excess baggage in their journey through life. An ideal arrangement would be the placement of household and family finances in the hands of the Six and investments and other major financial dealings in the hands of the Seven. Anxiety over financial matters will be handled more effectively by the Seven.
There is nothing that is superficial or artificial in the personality structure of either partner. This will be most evident in the genuineness of their love for one another. The general philosophy of both is to enjoy a quality relationship or nothing at all. Although they do not externalise their emotions their love and loyalty, once given, does not falter. The privacy and respect each will naturally show the other will contribute greatly to the solid foundation of their relationship. In times of stress and misunderstanding they may look within themselves for a cause and remedy rather than fault each other. They are sexually compatible partners but their relationship is one that can also be based on non-sexual love built on companionship and interests interlocking at more than one level.
6TH AND 8TH BIRTHDAYS
The proximity of the 6 and 8 in the ascending order of numbers, and the fact that both are even numbers symbolising receptive vibrations, cannot be taken as an indication of a close resemblance between the two in their basic characteristics. The opposite is in fact the true position as dissimilarities outnumber by far similarities to be expected from two receptive forces. Subjects of these birthdays are therefore not as close temperamentally as their vibrations would indicate.
The 6 is a receptive force fixed on the mental plane. Consequently, the thoughts and feelings of Six personalities are subject to clear mental analysis before they are given expression. Impetuosity, impulse, excitement, over-enthusiasm and other forms of emotionally charged behaviour are uncharacteristic traits. Yet, the Six personality projects an aura of warmth, friendliness, companionship, guardianship, cooperation, peace and comfort. In mature Sixes a motherly or fatherly image is projected as a result of their caring nature. All Sixes are also natural teachers in one form or another. The 6 vibration forms a balance between physical and spiritual aspects of human nature. Humanitarian and ethical values are inseparable from practical and realistic considerations. Sixes do not direct their energies one-pointedly towards the acquisition of power and possessions or measure life solely in terms of material success. Wholesome development of the total human being is more in keeping with their purpose in life, but this can only be done by a Six within a harmonious relationship with a compatible partner. Unless a Six suffers from a severe form of negativity, extremes of behaviour are quite uncharacteristic of them. They live quiet lives set at an even pace and promptly withdraw into themselves if rushed into making decisions or persuaded to act before they have had a chance to think things over.
Qualities such as service, helpfulness, acquiescence, beneficence, compliance, indecision, uncertainty and anxiety are carried through as common features in all receptive forces. An exception is the 8 vibration which, in the process of evolution, has acquired many features of active vibrations symbolised by odd numbers. As a curious mixture of receptive and active qualities its positive aspect demonstrates the stronger features of both polarities while its negative side could display many of the worst aspects of both. Outstanding active traits acquired by the 8 which clearly distinguishes this force from other receptive vibrations are authority, ambition, leadership, competition, aggressiveness, intolerance and dictatorship. The strong receptive traits retained by the 8 are a high sense of justice, deliberation, conservatism, a keen perception and feeling for the problems of others, a tendency towards excessive self-analysis and self-condemnation and dislike of frequent or sudden changes in their lifestyle. Unlike subjects of the 2, 4 and 6 vibrations who are willing to submit to authority, and in most cases perform at their best under authority or within established, rules, Eights, whether negatively or positively geared, cannot function successfully under direct authority or in a restricted field. In public life positive Eights naturally display an authoritative manner which leads them into administrative and executive positions while their negative counterparts are tossed from one position to another due to their inability to get along with people in either subordinate or authoritative roles. Personal relationships and the domestic scene do not see a change in the Eight’s style. Their natural tendency to take charge of things is seldom challenged as there are not many personality types who can succeed in dominating an Eight. Unlike middle-of-the-road people such as the Six, Eights are single-minded in their ambition to acquire power, fame and possessions. They often become trapped in the head-on pursuit of their ambitions leaving little time and energy for self-development, personal intimacies and family togetherness. As these people belong to public life in the sphere of business and administration an ideal choice of a partner should be one with strong domestic leanings. The obvious choice is a Six personality as there is no one who is more attached to and content within a domestic scene.
The question of a leader and decision maker will not become an issue in a Six/Eight partnership. The Six will gladly accept a supporting and companionship role as long as the Eight does not confuse a supporting role with submissiveness and subservience. Despite their cooperative nature and desire for peace and harmony Sixes are not doormats. Nothing that does not stand to reason can be put over a Six. Whenever any form of unfairness or injustice is forced upon them they are quite able to stand up for their rights. Both Sixes and Eights have a passion for planning, organisation, tidiness and regularity within a conservative lifestyle. When both partners live on the positive side of their birthday vibrations they complement each other in several aspects and a compatible relationship can be expected. If one or both suffer from a severe form of negativity problems arise which could easily disrupt the relationship. In this instance the loving and open personality of the positive Six is more or less frozen by abnormal fears due to loss of self-confidence. They become unsettled, interfering, moody, broody, nagging, argumentative, jealous, over-possessive and preoccupied with petty domestic matters. Negative Eights are not too different. They too suffer from lack of self-confidence which is carefully concealed by an aggressive and dictatorial manner. They turn indecisive, unsettled, self-centred, emotionally hard, abnormally attached to power and possessions and sadly, lose their capacity to love.
The more severe forms of negativity arise when the 6 and 8 vibrations are repeated in the birth months. The overloading of the qualities of the birthday blocks the entry of other forces that can open out the personality. On the other hand the most stable form of positivity is acquired when the 1 vibration is present in the birth month. This is the only force that ensures ego strength and consequently positive use of natural talents. The 1 vibration found in other areas of influence is helpful but not to the same extent as from its position as the birth month. Success of this partnership will therefore ultimately depend on the degree of positivity or negativity in each partner.
While an ideal situation prevails when the business minded Eight is the principal provider and the home loving Six the homemaker and, if necessary, the secondary wage earner, the reverse position will not be as successful. Not only will the Eight become unsettled and restless from the lack of scope for their extensive ambitions but they will also become disenchanted with the Six’s disinclination to match their own high ambitions. The consequence will be over management of domestic affairs and attempts on the part of the Eight to push their Six partners into stressful positions they are constitutionally not equipped to handle. This situation will be contrary to the destiny of both parties. Sixes need to proceed at their own pace leaving keenly competitive and aggressive occupations to others. Academic and professional fields are more in keeping with their temperament. They are not without business acumen but their business ventures should be chosen to a modest scale and confined to food, accommodation and household products. The Eight personality, unlike the Six and other even numbered people, is motivated and energised by competition, opposition and challenges. Using their extraordinary powers of judgment and organisation they put their heart and soul into whatever they do with the determination to reach the highest levels. In the process, however, many family needs on a day-to-day basis are unwittingly overlooked. In these circumstances the value of a partner such as a Six cannot be overestimated.
The influence of the Six’s even sided personality is carried into their social life. Sixes are never too busy or reluctant to offer hospitality – badly negative Sixes excepted. Guests feel at ease with the naturalness of a Six host or hostess. Food and drink will be good and plentiful as a Six’s larder will always be well stocked. While the one-pointedness of most Eights is responsible for success in public life it often lets them down in social life; lack of imagination, flexibility and variety in their general view of things being their main problem. They are without doubt friendly and sociable people but they need to be induced to temporarily put aside absorption in career and business affairs and engage in popular activities. The diplomatic Six is able to do so and thereby enlist the Eight’s invaluable support. The Eight may try to use social gatherings as opportunities to promote their public image and business interests but they should be reminded that social connections are better used for relaxation and self-development. Although the Six has certainly a greater need for social intercourse the differences in the attitudes of these partners are not likely to give rise to problems that could damage their relationship. This could happen only in the event of one or the other being badly affected by negative attitudes.
Six personalities stand out as consummate conversationalists. Their talents are generated from the fullness of their friendship, goodwill, diplomacy, patience and wisdom. To those in trouble they can be counted on to give a sympathetic ear and helpful counselling. Those seeking relaxation and entertainment are enlivened by witticisms, anecdotes and a fund of topical information. Their kindly and tolerant speech should, however, not be interpreted as a weakness as their clear logical minds will instantly challenge inaccuracies, inexactitudes, misjudgements and prejudiced opinions. The more formidable side of the Six is seen in debate, defence and argument. Eights are by no means as versatile and tactful in conversation as their Six partners. They minimise the spoken word by using authoritative body language. Many Eights do not change their manner of speech when they move from public address to private communication. They unconsciously retain their crisp, direct and often abrupt style which could lead to some degree of misunderstanding. They could be taken as hard-hearted and discourteous when in fact they are soft-hearted and emotionally vulnerable in intimate communication. Their problem is intensified by lack of fluency with words and a reluctance to discuss matters on equal terms. Emotionally charged issues are especially avoided. Communication will usually be initiated by their Six partners but the Six’s need for frequent conversations may not be realised.
Another overriding need of the Six which may not be adequately met is family togetherness or shared time outside working hours. The Six will make sure a certain amount of quality time is set aside for intimate family life. Despite their efforts, and the Eight’s own good intentions, it will not be easy to pull the Eight away from their public interests. Not only do business matters keep them away from home but leisure activities chosen by them may do so as well. Many Eights take to competitive sport or the administration of sporting and social clubs. They become the obvious choice when positions of coach, treasurer, secretary or president need to be filled. Getting Eight partners to relax and take things easy will be one of the Six’s biggest challenges. Simple home-based pastimes taken up by the Six such as home beautification, music, literature, cooking and over-the-fence chats with neighbours will not attract and hold the attention of most Eights. However, educational activities, social service or positions in the hospitality industry could draw the Six away from pre-occupation with home and family and provide opportunity to combine with their Eight partners in a shared interest.
A curious feature of the Eight personality is the ability to manage the financial affairs of others better than their own. This is not so unusual when one sees that their attention is focused well beyond day-to-day personal and household management. The Eight’s idea is to take charge of wider issues and delegate regular duties to others, and this is where a Six partner fits in admirably. The influence of the Six also controls the working Eight’s tendency to indulge family members with over-generous gifts as a way of compensating them for loss of personal attention and guidance. Sixes who remain true to their well balanced nature, whether working or not, maintain everything in proportion.
Public responsibilities, domestic cares and the needs of loved ones receive equal attention. Negative Sixes may lose their sense of proportion and became over-possessive and over-protective and smother their loved ones with attention and luxuries, but their overall capacity for sound financial management will remain unchanged. Their natural anxiety over their financial future usually acts as a break against extravagant spending.
It is highly unlikely that extra marital relationships or clandestine affairs will endanger this partnership. The Six’s attraction to the opposite sex is more of a mental nature than a sensual one. They are able to take objective views of beauty they see in the opposite sex. Furthermore, the value they place on peace and harmony in family life precludes any inclination towards adventures and experimentation outside their relationship. A working Eight partner can confidently expect a Six to keep the home fires burning. The ever present problem with a working Eight is the tendency to become absorbed in their jobs at the expense of intimate time with their partners and family. It also opens opportunities for temporary love affairs. Though some Eights may take advantage of them they will not go as far as breaking up their established home. They are family proud people and excellent providers who expect family members to be a credit to them. Eight’s reject sexually demanding partners and in this respect the Six, once again, is an ideal partner as they possess the same attitudes towards sex life. Synchronisation of mood, time and place rather than sudden impulse is preferred by both.
6TH AND 9TH BIRTHDAYS
Qualities of the mental plane are spread abundantly over this set of birthdays. The vibrations of the birth month which have a significant impact on the personality formed by the birthday do not alter the basic mental orientation of people born on these days. Nor does a combination of the lesser spheres of influence diminish their mental outlook. Individuals born on the 6th day are influenced by a receptive force and use typical receptive qualities such as deliberation, diplomacy, unselfishness, sympathy, compromise, service, companionship, peace and harmony to achieve their ends. The Nine personality is not only energised by an active force but also by one in which qualities of all other vibrations represented by single digits have been crystallised. This complex structure accounts for the comprehensive nature of the Nine personality.
Sixes and Nines fall broadly into three categories in regard to the proportion of positivity or negativity in the application of their birthday characteristics. Top-heaviness or an overloading of mental qualities is a problem with those having mental vibrations repeated in their birth months. A high I.Q. may be gained by this condition but this may also be at the expense of an easy flow of emotion and practical application of their mental creations. Not only do these individuals suffer from the consequences of a disproportionate personality structure but they could be the cause of suffering to others, especially in intimate relationships. Their main difficulty is the lack of stability. Those with emotional numbers in their birth months are not as lop-sided yet they lack the stability and sense of direction that can only be gained from physically oriented vibrations. Of the 1, 4 and 7 on the physical plane the most desirable is the 1 vibration which contributes to strength and self-confidence among many other constructive attributes. It is the genuine ‘go-after-and-get’ force needed for full expression of potential. Persons born on the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are the best examples of positive Sixes and positive Nines. These make ideal partners as they have sufficient similarities in their temperament to make life easy and sufficient dissimilarities to make life interesting and complementary. Partnerships between Sixes and Nines of the first two categories may run into difficulties due to their lack of practicality, their difficulty in maintaining a proper sense of direction and the absence of down-to-earth values. Also, in many instances further obstacles are created by over enthusiasm, impulse, impetuosity and the lack of patience, loyalty and tolerance. However, these individuals cannot be hastily judged until other spheres of influence have been examined for balancing physical vibrations. The relationship will succeed to the extent that practicality and self-confidence and self-sufficiency are provided by these spheres.
There is a golden thread of fellow-feeling that runs through the 6 and 9 vibrations that will attract and unite Sixes and Nines. With diminished egos and strong humanitarian views on life both personalities can leave their own affairs aside and relate to each other’s joys and sorrows as well as those of others. Although humanistic views remain as an undertone in all situations they do not necessarily cover the same range and in the same degree. Sixes are home, family and community minded people who devote their energies unselfishly and responsibly within this sphere of activity. Nines have developed the potential to look beyond all boundaries, to overcome a sense of separateness and develop an identity with all life. Allowing for practical limitations of travel, political divisions and financial considerations they live as world citizens indifferent to superficial differences in humankind.
In the minds of both Sixes and Nines one-pointed ambition for worldly power and material possessions has evolved into aspiration for enjoyment of the finer things of life. In those who have taken up self-development along constructive lines aspiration has grown into inspiration through receptivity to higher powers. They are quick to see and do the right thing in most circumstances. However, both partners need to check each other against undue extension of trust in others and over-involvement in the lives of these others. By evoking their compassionate nature they especially can be taken advantage of by self-seeking people. The Six is less vulnerable for the reason that they do not plunge into the same variety of activity or brave as many hazards as the Nine. Their generosity is also tempered by their desire to provide for home and family before other considerations.
Both partners depend on outlets provided by other areas of influence for release of emotion but there is a significant difference in the emotionality of each. The Six’s need for emotional release is not as urgent as the Nine’s as they do not build up or generate the same quantity of emotion. They are naturally even-tempered and seldom reach a state when they cannot contain themselves. Alternatively, Nines are subject to frequent surges of emotion and when no outlets for immediate release are available it accumulates in their heads and bursts forth when they cannot be held any longer. Their judgments are often swayed by emotion, but this is seldom the case with the Six. Sixes are more likely to make realistic interpretations of things while Nines, when not swayed by emotion, tend towards idealistic interpretations. Many Sixes and Nines who are affected by negative influences may be subject to moods varying from mild bouts of melancholy to deeper states of depression. The need to be left alone until they come out of themselves will be understood by both partners.
As neither partner is fenced in by egotism there will be no attempts to impose authority on one another. Divisions of authority and responsibility will automatically be settled according to the talents and tendencies of each. Both usually take time to reach decisions. The Six seldom deviates from their fondness to weigh pros and cons of a matter, but Nines may at times decide to act as the spirit moves them. When such decisions are found to be disadvantageous or impracticable the Nine could be prevailed upon to change their minds just as quickly. While many professions and some business areas are open to the Six they are also capable and willing to follow homemaking as a career. The Nine, in contrast, is not a domesticated individual. Homemaking will not be seen as a rewarding occupation as these individuals need to be immersed in the melodrama of public life on as wide a scale as possible. The priorities of these partners differ in regard to domestic affairs. A partnership in which the Nine is the homemaker by virtue of necessity and the Six the breadwinner will not be as successful as the reverse situation. In the event of both following careers the Six may undertake an extra share of home duties due to their natural fondness for such duties and also the fact that the situation will be forced on them by the Nine’s over-involvement in public affairs. This will not be a disagreeable situation as the Six will appreciate that it is not carelessness or selfishness on the part of the Nine that keeps them away from a full share of domestic responsibilities but their unselfish devotion to the many causes they sponsor. The Six will not sacrifice or neglect home and family for external obligations as their natural sense of balance helps them cope with both aspects of life.
Both Sixes and Nines are extroverted and sociable people. In the process of progression all angular points of character have been rounded off and refined. No artificial or insincere methods are needed by them in order to gain popularity in society. Not only are they able to relax in company but also their presence puts everyone else at ease. Following their wider horizons Nines are attracted to people from all walks of life. They remain open to new experiences and enjoy being different from the norm. As they are not bound by barriers of race, creed, or cultural differences they communicate with one and all on equal terms treating them as potential friends and even as teachers. Sixes use a degree of caution in their choice of company. They do not welcome sudden changes in their social circles and make new acquaintances at a slower pace abiding by conservative standards. They prefer to use their home as a centre for selected social activity while Nines prefer to go out for entertainment. However, hospitality is not exclusive to the Six, and is also an integral part of the Nine. Nor is the Six averse to social outings, especially those in which they partake in good food and congenial company.
Sixes and Nines are undeniably among the most accessible and pleasant conversationalists. Conversation never lags in their company nor is it in their nature to monopolise conversation. They participate as attentive and objective listeners as well as constructive and informative speakers. Their speech is emphasised and enriched by good humour and eloquent body language. They alternate with ease between light-hearted banter to serious discussions. Where they miss out on self-expression through emotional demonstration they gain in fluency of speech. Their natural capacity to appreciate the points of view of others helps them enter into argument and reach compromises without evoking ill-temper, bitterness or rancour.
While the Six is content to spend much of their leisure time enjoying home based hobbies the Nine looks for outside interests to keep happy. There usually isn’t a great deal of difference between their social life and leisure activities. Sixes alternate periods of activity with periods of ease and relaxation but the Nine may continue on at an unbroken tempo until they are forced to rest through over-expenditure of energy. Though the Nine may go further afield than the Six a good deal of mutual support and fulfilment can be gained in joint efforts in community activities. The Nine will not bring pressure on the Six to reduce some of their home oriented hobbies such as cooking, home beautification and maintenance. On the contrary, when the mood hits them, and when they are able to free themselves from outside interests they make valuable and welcome contributions. Whenever possible these partners would rather do things as a twosome rather than select individual hobbies. They are natural teachers and healers. A mutual interest is certain to develop in a variety of preventive and curative methods of maintaining good health. Their knowledge will not be kept to themselves but given out to all who seek their help. Music, literature and the other fine arts are also definite areas in which these mentally oriented people will gain enormous mutual pleasure. While the Six may follow orthodox religious practices the Nine may develop a deeper interest in metaphysics and the mystical aspects of the noble religions. The Nine’s demands for frequent travel may cause some problems with the house-based Six.
Management of their money will be one aspect of this partnership in which these partners will not see eye to eye. Sixes, as in all other duties, are good money managers who will conscientiously take charge of expenditure and saving once they enter into a partnership. With proper budgeting they ensure that funds are put aside for daily or weekly expenses and bills when they arrive. They are not impulsive buyers and purchase goods of quality and durability when needed. They do not dispose of clothing or other goods until full use has been made of them. Charity begins at home is their motto but they also believe that it should not stay there once a stable home has been established. They are not people who are optimistic about their financial position and consequently their attitude towards money is governed by anxiety. Concern for financial security makes them good managers but in some instances this could be carried too far and may damage their quality of life. The Nine’s attitude is the opposite. They do not let money worries interfere with the quality of life. They are optimistic and confident that money will always be available when needed. This belief often turns out to be true in the case of the Nine, but a Six will not be converted to this belief. Following their optimistic ways Nines are careless money managers who buy what they want and not always what they need or can afford. They replace their goods, especially their clothing, well before they have made reasonable use of them. They give unwisely when their sentiments are touched, and their generosity is not confined to family but freely given to others.
Problems over financial matters created by the Nine will not get out of hand if the Six takes charge. Using the combined wisdom of head and heart the Nine will usually agree to this arrangement. Once this single contentious issue has been sorted out they can settle down to a close and exceptionally happy relationship. Due to the complex nature of the Nine’s personality structure the Six may be called upon more frequently than the Nine to accommodate to changes in their partner. Younger Nines take time to understand, reconcile and adjust to the several aspects of their personality clamouring for attention and expression. The intuitive Six will see that maturity will remedy many inconsistencies and reveal a superior, warm and lovable partner, and their natural temperament as parents, teachers and guardians gives them the patience to do so.
6TH AND 10TH BIRTHDAYS
A relationship between persons born on the 6th and 10th days will follow the same pattern as that between partners with 1st and 6th birthdays. The chapter on the 1st and 6th birthdays covers a Six/Ten combination. However, it should be noted that people born on the 10th day are emphatic One personalities as the Zero, though it does not add fresh qualities to the Ten, has a tendency to intensify the force of the 1 vibration, as it does to the 2 and 3 vibrations in the 20th and 30th days. Emphasis on One qualities may affect the Ten’s relationship with certain other personality types but causes no noticeable change in a relationship with a Six.
6TH AND 11TH BIRTHDAYS
A relationship between persons born on the 6th and 11th days cannot be regarded as an even combination of well defined personality types on account of the high frequency of the master vibration controlling the 11th day. This will indeed be the position when any other birthday is combined with the variable and complex nature of the forces within the 11th day.
In the first instance, the 6th day forms a personality in whom unmistakable 6 characteristics are evident with variations only in terms of positive or negative expression of these qualities. The same is not the case with people born on the 11th as not all subjects of this birthday function at the high frequency of the master vibration to the extent that they may be identified as mature Elevens. Other areas of the birthday and name plus cultural background and environmental conditioning determine the degree in which the force of the master vibration takes hold of the personality. Consequently, Elevens are found in various stages of growth, beginning from strong Two personalities (11 = 1 + 1 = 2) to full-blown Elevens. The latter are certainly in the minority. But all Elevens who function as strong Twos possess many attributes of the master vibration. Some are operative parts of their personality while others may be triggered off from subconscious levels in special circumstances. The chapter on the 2nd and 6th birthdays, though not exactly applicable, will nevertheless be of interest to a couple with 6th and 11th birthdays. The Two personality should, however, be considered as a strong positive Two as none of the weaker traits of the unqualified Two born on the 2nd or 20th appear in the Eleven (Two).
Having a closer kinship to spirit than physical matter the 11 vibration generates some special qualities such as inspiration, vision, revelation, intuition and invention. All Elevens possess these qualities in varying degrees as the underlying 2 vibration is a sensitive and receptive psychic force which responds to the subtle forces of the master vibration. A unique feature of the 11 vibration is that it not only possesses many sensitive 2 qualities but also contains the energetic and creative qualities of the 1 vibration. The inventive genius of the 1 is found in the 11 to a higher degree, but also the 1’s materialistic and self-seeking ambition has been transformed into idealistic and humanistic trends and a strong pull towards spiritual aspiration.
Elevens tend towards negative expression only when the 1 vibration is repeated in the birth month. However, their form of negativity is not one of defencelessness, vulnerability and instability. Instead, it is one of rigidity and stubbornness. Indecision may also become a problem. The personality is hardened to a degree that causes a block of the master vibration’s unique quality of inspiration. Other desirable qualities such as imagination, flexibility, emotional expression, romance and spontaneity are also inhibited. However, these Elevens cannot be used or abused by domineering persons or broken by adverse living conditions as the force of tremendous willpower not only resists and overcomes anything objectionable but also, once they have made a decision, helps them persist in an undertaking against tremendous odds.
As the Six personality vibrates to a much slower frequency the real problem confronting these partners is adjustment to each other’s speed and distance in thought and action. In addition, the 6 vibration represents balance in all things which helps the Six personality enjoy life without overdoing certain functions at the expense of others. As a natural consequence they judge others too in terms of balance in their personality. Elevens do not possess this balancing factor and could therefore turn exclusively to special directions at the expense of broad-based development. While Sixes experience difficulty coping with people who do not, within reason, possess their own evenly balanced temperament, Elevens find difficulty coping with those who cannot follow their idealistic and high-minded thoughts. Orientation of the Six personality is towards adjustment and accommodation as far as possible to prevailing conditions while most Elevens demand speedy change, reform and improvement. Many Sixes may be prepared to meet an Eleven partner halfway, but the Eleven will be reluctant to concede anything more than minimal concessions. Sixes make a conscious effort to avoid any moves that could result is loss or unhappiness to someone else, but an Eleven may unwittingly cause pain as they focus their attention directly on whatever they undertake to the exclusion of what goes on around them.
The positive Six radiates an atmosphere of warmth, friendship and trust. People of all age groups find pleasure and comfort in their company. As natural teachers, confidants, counsellors, parents and guardians they invariably take up positions of trust and responsibility in the home and in public life. When the 1 vibration is present in the birth month the Six is assuredly a positive individual. Those with this vibration in other spheres of influence are also equipped with positive attributes which may vary in strength depending on the particular sphere of influence and the nature of other vibrations influencing the personality. There may be a need for these Sixes to concentrate on strengthening self-confidence and a good self-image. When the 6 vibration is repeated in the birth month the Six usually is negatively inclined and if the individual is not supported by strong counteracting forces they become closed-in personalities who are forever unsettled and over-anxious about personal and domestic matters. Jealousy, suspicion, and self-destructive moods of depression magnify their self-centred attitudes. There is little hope of a successful partnership between these Sixes and Elevens.
Coexistence, cooperation and equality in all matters form the Sixes idea of a partnership, but an Eleven may not see things in the same light. They are more likely to want exclusive territory for themselves as sharing things on an equal basis is not as much a part of their temperament as it is with the Six. The Six will readily settle down to the business of mutual responsibility and even surrender some of their personal desires for the good of the partnership, but many Elevens may still be striving to establish a proper personal identity and a sense of direction and will therefore not be in a position to give too much of themselves. The simpler personality structure of the Six makes them early starters in life while the complex structure of the Eleven is responsible for a later start. Their personal lives are seldom as orderly and organised as those of the Six. In a partnership with a Six they will certainly be relieved of many domestic responsibilities. The Eleven expects others to follow their ideas rather than submit to their personal authority. Their leadership is therefore on a more abstract level and will not interfere with a Six partner’s control of domestic affairs. Sixes are genuinely home loving people who centre their lives on home, family, neighbours and their local community. They will often be found doing things for others which others should really be doing for themselves. The Eleven’s problem with personal direction lies not only in the lack of interest in domestic life but in the several major directions open to them in public life, each different from the other. Elevens are found in religion as evangelists, preachers and missionaries as well as in politics and social service as freedom fighters and reformers, in science as inventors. They may be involved in the arts as painters and poets and in the professions as philosophers, psychologists, astronomers, astrologers, mediums, dress designers and in other diagnostic and creative fields. The Eleven will put more energy and time into their careers than domestic affairs while the Six will strike a balance between devotion to a career and family life.
The Six’s tendency to conform and the Eleven’s desire to reform may be observed in their conduct in social life. These differences do not cause conflict between them as their humanitarian aims are much the same. It is in the manner in which they seek to fulfil these aims that they differ. The Six chooses to move within the established order of society taking their time to catch up with changing social values and concepts. They find it easier to accept people as they find them within conservative and conventional levels of society. They become agitated and disoriented by artificial and unlovely surroundings and controversial situations, and avoid them at all costs. Alternatively, Elevens are usually in advance of current trends and become unsettled and frustrated if they are obliged to conform to established codes of conduct. They are drawn to non-conformist elements of society where their innovative ideas and bohemian ways can be given freedom of expression. They are usually flushed with ideas which they cannot resist passing on to others. In this respect negative Elevens are the opposite of their positive counterparts. They reject anything new and resent a partner’s attempts to change their habits.
Conversation with an Eleven is often a one-way affair. In their belief that everything needs improvement they expound their views with a sense of urgency and conviction using several lines of argument. They may often pursue their own train of thought without giving ear to the views of others. The Six, in contrast, following their balanced temperament, is an admirable conversationalist. While respecting the privacy of others they act as concerned and interested listeners who draw people out of themselves. They are quick at repartee with a rich store of anecdotes, good humour and wise counsel. While many Elevens could hold forth and not follow through with practical application of their ideas Sixes are always as good as their word. Elevens are inclined to blame others for their dislikes but Sixes take responsibility for their feelings. They constantly watch their speech for accuracy and fairness, but Elevens could be somewhat tardy in doing so. As a consequence the conversation of some Elevens could be tiresome and often irrelevant. Other Elevens are often lost in verbiage when they set to expound on abstract matters.
The companionable Six will always be willing and happy to spend their free time and leisure activities in the company of their partners or other family members. It is not in the nature of the Six to choose solitary hobbies or spend their free time with people unrelated to their normal family life. Family togetherness is promoted by the Six above all individual interests. Enlisting the support of family members Six personalities are prominent in all local activities. Schools, Churches, sporting organisations, Scouts and Girl Guides and charitable institutions are seldom without the support of Six parents. Many Elevens, however, may not share the same commitment to family matters during their spare time. They do not identify themselves as much with mundane aspects of family life and local activity. Their interests may turn to scientific, artistic or mystic aspects of life. Practical service which is the forte of the Six is not part of the Eleven’s contribution to society. Rather, they are students, researchers, investigators and discoverers whose aim is to contribute to the expansion of human knowledge. They do not feel guilty if they do not share their spare time with their partners. While Sixes merge happily into established areas of relaxation Elevens, urged on by their investigative nature, seek adventure in metaphysical and other esoteric fields. Much of their time may be spent within groups and societies formed for the development and advancement of scientific and esoteric knowledge.
Anxiety over their financial position is a problem most Sixes suffer, however, it does not trouble the Eleven. Sixes are not extravagant spenders and their fondness for security in the form of creature comforts, good food and drink, the ability to settle their bills and keep out of debt and to furnish their homes tastefully keep them very much aware of the need for a steady income and a savings account to be drawn upon in times of need. They are not people who can make a quick comeback after financial disaster. Their generosity begins at home and is extended only after all home and family requirements have been met. Money does not dominate the Eleven’s thoughts as much as it does those of the Six. They are not as dependent on creature comforts and more importantly they are able to tide over adversity in quicker time. As their need to establish financial security is not as acute they spend more generously. When their sentiments are aroused they could part with their money unwisely. Family needs may not be given first priority. They do not maintain the same sense of proportion as the Six in their spending habits. The Six partner should certainly take charge of the finances in this partnership.
The many shades of the Eleven personality make it impossible to classify them as a standard type that could be suitably matched with another regular personality such as a Six. Not only do some Elevens vary from other Elevens but variations exist in the same person according to time, place and circumstance. It is not easy for these individuals to find partners who are generous and flexible enough to keep up with the variations in their vibratory rate and consequently in their behaviour. Further difficulties arise from their intolerance of people who cannot keep pace with them. They are not people who put time and effort into enriching a relationship and any attempts to pursue or possess them will only jeopardise the relationship. The Six, with a slower and unchanging vibratory rate, will be forced to adjust to many changes in an Eleven partner.
6TH AND 12TH BIRTHDAYS
The distinctive feature of this combination is the single vibratory power within the 6th day and the multiple forces controlling the 12th day. In human terms it would appear as the identifiable and predictable disposition of the unqualified Six personality as compared with the intricacies of the three-fold personality structure of the Twelve. In the majority of combinations of this sort the individual with the single digit birthday, especially if it is an even number, follows a uniform lifestyle relative to the character of the birth force. The person with the multiple digit birthday is invariably involved in a diversified and often complex lifestyle. In many instances this creates a complementary situation because the latter, with expanded horizons, introduces vitality, adventure and flexibility into the partnership and the former, following their circumspect ways will exercise controls and safeguards, and work towards maintaining a clear direction in life. This will certainly be the case with Six and Twelve partners.
In the evolutionary process of spirit through matter the stage when material and immaterial forces are in a state of equilibrium is symbolised by the number 6. People influenced by this balanced vibratory force, for the most part, maintain an orderly rhythm of life through evenly distributed personality traits and moderate personal needs. The 6 vibration is geared towards serene, harmonious and peaceful living. It derives its strength from the mental plane. It is also a receptive vibration and the nature of all receptive forces is to gather in rather than go out and get their needs. A pure Six personality, that is one born on the 6th day, does not possess the high ambition for personal power and self-promotion natural to subjects of active vibrations. They are non-aggressive and non-competitive people who need to proceed at their own pace. They retreat into themselves if rushed into decisions and hurried action before their analytical minds have been given time to examine the pros anal cons of a matter. They do not make decisions or initiate an action that could harm someone or lead to disharmony or dissension in their environment. Sixes who possess the 1 vibration in the birth month overcome many of their limitations. This is an activating force which provides ambition, self-confidence, decision and self-assertiveness. It will endow the Six personality with the willpower to maintain the instinctive need for balance and harmony in their lifestyle. The 1 vibration in the birth year may not be sufficiently strong to provide positive influences, but it could be active in important spheres in the name. Negative Sixes are those who do not possess this self-motivating force in any degree of strength. Those with the 6 vibration repeated in their birth month are in a particularly difficult position as the overloading of 6 qualities prevents other vibrations breaking through. As a result of this lop-sided personality structure the individual is unable to maintain the natural balance required by their birth force. The consequences are usually disorientation, despair, depression and pre-occupation with personal affairs and especially the inability to cope with their self-generated fears.
While positivity and negativity may be found in varying degrees in the Six personality all Twelves are positive individuals within the full meaning of the concept of positivity. Powerful active qualities such as decision, leadership, ambition, self-confidence, self-esteem, initiative, independence, vital energy and a creative imagination materialise in double strength through the agency of the 1 and 3 vibrations. The Twelve is generally regarded as a qualified Three personality with the 1 and 2 vibrations operating in the foreground of the personality and the 3 as the underlying force. (The chapter on the 3rd and 6th birthdays, though not strictly applicable, will certainly be of interest to the reader). The receptive 2 vibration serves to round off aggressive and acquisitive tendencies of the 1 and slow down over-enthusiastic inclinations of the 3. As the vibrations forming the Twelve extend over the physical, emotional and mental planes they are exceptionally versatile people. The 1 vibration provides down-to-earth, businesslike and practical virtues, the 2 provides an outlet for emotion and introduces genteel qualities of charm, tact, romance, courtesy, and adaptability and the 3 adds imagination, vivacity, youthfulness, laughter, spontaneity and extroversion.
Individuality is a trait shared by all persons influenced by odd numbers. Whether or not they find themselves in positions of authority they insist on operating by their own steam. They may look to junior partners or subordinates for support but may also display fierce resentment towards any form of encroachment upon their independence. Decision making cannot be taken away from them, nor can they be made answerable for their actions. Guided by the 1 and 3 vibrations, which are two of the most individualistic of all forces, the Twelve emerges as a perfect example of individuality. Alternatively, people influenced by even numbers function and develop at their best as team members or in association or partnership with others. They thrive in an atmosphere of mutual cooperation by adapting a non-competitive goodwill approach and a willingness to extend trust to others. While individuals with predominantly odd numbers may delay entering into a permanent relationship with a member of the opposite sex for fear of losing their freedom, even numbered people are eager to enter into a relationship as early as possible. They do not interpret a cooperative partnership as a surrender of their individuality, and instead, look forward to it as an opportunity to expand their individuality.
A Six/Twelve partnership is likely to settle down to a situation in which the Six assumes a responsible role in domestic affairs and the Twelve takes up a prominent role in public life. Twelves are highly motivated to make their mark in the world. With greater confidence in themselves they gain the confidence of others and make rapid progress. The Six’s ambition for personal power and achievement is not as high as that of the Twelve. The difference is largely due to the ego-consciousness of the Twelve and the group-consciousness of the Six. The Six’s ambitions are divided between establishing a harmonious family life and a reasonably successful professional life. They are happiest when surrounded by creature comforts in familiar, tasteful and beautiful surroundings and in the company of people sharing their own refined tastes. A proper balance will always be held between devotion to a career and domestic responsibilities. This cannot be said of the Twelve whose tendency will be to put more time and energy into their careers. Stability and happiness in this partnership will be achieved if the Twelve is the principal breadwinner and the Six the homemaker or part-time wage earner. The reverse position will slow down progress and place unwanted pressures on the Six as well as restlessness on the part of the Twelve.
Sixes and Twelves are both extroverted and socially oriented people although their conduct and motives may differ. The Six becomes popular by showing interest in people while the Twelve does so by getting people interested in them. As group conscious people Sixes do not feel the same degree of ego consciousness and, as such, are able to identify with people on a collective basis. Self-interest can be set aside, within reason, and time and energy given as counsellors, hosts and hostesses, good neighbours, conversationalists and entertainers. Secular and religious organisations are seldom without the voluntary help of Six personalities. As the Twelve’s personality structure is made up of ego conscious vibrations they consciously set out to acquire personal popularity and invariably succeed in doing so. Supported by a vibrant and optimistic outlook on life and all the qualities of natural performers and entertainers they hold the centre of attention and lift the atmosphere of any company they are in. Domestic responsibilities are seldom allowed to interrupt their social life. Six partners, as in other matters, will strike a balance between social life and domestic duties.
Both Sixes and Twelves are refreshing and informative conversationalists, but once again each shows a difference in ego consciousness. Sixes reach over to others and spend time as listeners. When they do speak out they do not ramble along on personal or other inconsequential matters but instead use their clear thought processes in a logical and rational sequence. In addition, their speech is enlivened and softened by a kindly sense of humour, usually directed at themselves. Twelves allow much less listening time for others as they cannot resist the urge to talk about their own affairs. They elaborate on personal experiences on the assumption that people are really interested in them and, indeed they are usually able to capture an audience by their sharp sense of humour, lively imagination, gift for flowery language and enthusiasm. As not many people would be game enough to interrupt an enthusiastic Twelve speaker others may find at the end of a conversation that they have been doing all the listening. When Twelves do change to impersonal topics they can seldom be swayed from their firm personal views. Sixes and Twelves are willing to talk things over in order to work out compromises. However, the Six may make more concessions for the sake of peace and a Twelve may regard concessions as a surrender of their rights as individuals. Arguments and discussions between these partners will highlight the Twelve’s speed of thought followed by fluency of speech and the Six’s slow and deliberate thoughts followed by measured and unhurried speech. Sixes are defensive and non-aggressive in argument. Aggression in any form needs response to maintain itself and it will not arise when a Six is involved.
Different personality types have different leisure requirements. If some of their choices happen to be the same their attitudes and reactions may still differ. This will be observed in Six and Twelve partners. As in all areas in life the Six’s wish is to operate as a good team member rather than aspire to leadership or outstanding performance. However, in many instances they do achieve distinction despite their indifference to personal glory. Alternatively, Twelves go after popularity and fame through leadership and personal achievement. The gregarious and non-competitive nature of the Six helps them take pleasure in the process of doing something as well as in the final result. If the end result does not turn out as expected they still retain pleasant memories of the attempt. Twelves are usually one-pointed in their efforts to be second to none and the process of doing so is something they concentrate on as a means to this end. They suffer frustration and anguish when the result does not turn out as expected.
They are essentially outdoor people involved in a variety of sports and other forms of entertainment. Sixes, following their leisurely ways and attachment to home take up indoor hobbies such as the culinary arts, reading, music and home entertainment. Though these partners may not always do things as a pair they will maintain a proportionate amount of togetherness and separateness. Mutual support and cooperation will always be given when needed. The Six’s non-competitive nature does not rule out genuine talent in outdoor activities nor does the Twelve’s interest in outdoor activities rule out their talents as creative artists.
The pecuniary resources of this partnership will always remain stable, as the money management skills of both partners tend to complement rather than counteract each other. Careful handling of money is an integral part of the Six’s good management of all their affairs. A Six’s ‘play it safe’ policy prevents over-spending and undue risks being taken in investments. While this partner chooses to move forward step by step the Twelve, true to their self-confident and venturesome nature, often suffers from a rush of desires which they seek to satisfy all at once. While the Six introduces caution into their financial affairs the Twelve’s greater initiative will no doubt be responsible for its continued prosperity. In more ways than one this partnership is a blend of stability and mobility. The Six’s natural serenity and sense of humour may at times be impaired by unnecessary anxiety over their financial position. This will be relieved by the Twelve’s natural optimism which enables them to step back and enjoy life instead of worrying about what is going to happen next.
Both Sixes and Twelves set in motion vibrations which bring sympathetic responses. They are drawn to each other by their differences as well as their affinities. The passage of time tends to strengthen their love and admiration of each other. The warm and accommodating nature of the Six continues to expand and the youthful Twelve, whose romantic and sentimental nature is never fully exposed in public life, continues to respond to the mature Six. All-round development as friends as well as lovers is the wonderful prospect ahead of these partners. Once the Twelve appreciates the Six partner’s unselfishness all self-centred desires will be transformed into loyalty and generosity. The Six, in turn, will benefit from the vitality of the Twelve which does not diminish with age.
6TH AND 13TH BIRTHDAYS
The 6th and 13th birthdays are in every respect an attractive combination. The mental plane is represented by the 6 and 3 vibrations while the physical plane has strong representation through the 1 and 4 vibrations in the 13th day. The absence of emotional plane vibrations will be a help rather than a hindrance as neither the Six personality nor the Thirteen will welcome an emotionally expressive partner. Affinities between these personalities and their complementary features exceed by far any divisive characteristics.
The unqualified Six personality is ruled by a vibration that promotes companionship, friendship, domesticity, parenthood, adjustment, diplomacy, responsibility, tranquillity, and above all, love in a comprehensive sense. It operates from a foundation of balance, evenness, regularity and uniformity. The Six personality is basically a considerate individual who observes a well-proportioned outlook between personal needs, their obligations towards loved ones, and community interests. The essential nature of the 6 vibration is such that the mating urge is strong in all Six personalities. Their individuality cannot be adequately expressed or expanded and enriched outside a family environment. Six partners therefore commit themselves wholeheartedly to the welfare and success of family life. More often than not the Six partner will readily face up to changes they need to make. They do this not merely for the sake of harmony but out of a generous and accommodating nature. They are essentially givers rather than takers and this spirit is not confined to family life but also carried into their dealings in public life. The single vibration forming their basic personality structure prevents deviation from whatever course they set themselves in private or public life. Unfortunately, not all Six personalities possess a full share of the admirable positive qualities of their birthday vibration. The Six needs the self-directing energy provided by the 1 vibration for optimum self-expression. If this is not present in sufficient degrees in other spheres of influence negative aspects of their birth force take hold of the personality. Poor self-esteem, depressive moods, pettiness, self-centredness, jealousy, possessiveness, over-emphasis of minor domestic worries and abnormal mental creations are some problems so alien to the positive Six, which become prominent characteristics in the negative counterpart. These Sixes could be very burdensome partners. The birth month provides the best position for the vitalising force of the 1. Sixes born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are positive individuals with the power to live up to their full potential. Needless to say, such a Six would make a perfect match for anyone seeking a loving and stable relationship. The power of the 1 vibration is lessened when it is not in the birthday or birth month. Six persons with the 1 vibration in other areas of influence may vary in their degree of positivity or negativity according to area or areas in which it appears. The unlucky minority without the 1 vibration in any degree of strength that could offset an overloading of mental forces suffer a loss of balance which becomes the principal cause of negative attitudes.
While people with the 6th birthday may be found in a variety of conditions as regards positivity or negativity, no such problem exists with the Thirteen. With the activating force of the 1 vibration in the birthday itself all Thirteens fall unmistakably into a single category of positive personalities. The 13th is in fact an exceptionally strong and multi-talented birthday. It is a rare combination of creativity on the mental plane as well as the physical and practical plane. Theory and practice are conjoint talents in their integral personality structure. Not only is the personality strengthened by the individualistic, independent and self-confident attributes of the 1 vibration its threefold nature includes the equally individualistic and self-sufficient forces of the 3 and 4 vibrations. The mental 3 has many characteristics in common with the physical 1 such as authority, leadership, ambition, initiative and enterprise. The combination of these forces in a single personality makes the Thirteen a natural leader, adventurer and go-getter. At the same time any extravagant and egoistic tendencies are held in check by the down-to-earth values of the underlying. 4 vibration. The Thirteen is actually a qualified Four personality. The chapter on the 4th and 6th birthdays, though not strictly relevant, will be of interest to the reader.
The Thirteen’s automatic assumption of the leadership role can be expected and is not likely to be challenged by the Six whose nature does not incline towards direct leadership. The Six prefers to lead by consensus and example. They are, as a rule, willing to acknowledge and appreciate strong leadership and this is exactly what a Thirteen will provide. Irrational, impulsive, inconsistent and risky decisions which the clear minded Six will immediately reject, are totally foreign to the Thirteen’s temperament. With abundant springs of energy Thirteens can be depended upon to quickly come up with solutions to practical problems that arise from time to time. Being a slow and deliberate thinker the Six takes time to act and invariably feels relieved and sheltered in association with a partner who can act decisively and constructively. Finding solutions for psychological and moral problems is the Six’s forte. The tempo of life does not move the unflappable Six as much as it does emotionally oriented people. The Six performs at their best in non-competitive situations that do not demand instant decisions and constant adjustment to changing conditions. The aspirations of the Six and Thirteen are in many ways identical, yet in as many ways they are separate and identifiable. Both have the ability to hold responsible and lucrative positions in public life. At the same time both are keen to establish a happy and prosperous home life. Given the option, however, the Thirteen will unhesitatingly choose a career in public life while the Six will not reject home making as a career. If the partnership is so arranged it will be exceptionally successful. The reverse position may be less successful as a Six functioning as the principal breadwinner may not be able to keep pace with a Thirteen partner’s ambitions. In the event of both partners holding public office the Six is likely to take up a greater share of domestic duties.
Both Sixes and Thirteens are extroverted people who make a very favourable impact on society. A Six/Thirteen couple will not compete with each other for social popularity as both gain popularity through their own way of handling themselves in social life. The Thirteen moves in society as an entertainer and solo performer with the confidence of a person accustomed to holding the spotlight. Their versatility and enthusiasm tend to keep their whole personality on a rather high note which is usually taken up by those around them. While Thirteens are much more aware of themselves and expect others to pay attention to them, Sixes make their contribution with a group conscious mentality. Their quest for a congenial and serene way of life and indifference towards occupying the limelight keeps them at a slower pace. They are hospitable people who prefer to use their homes as the focal point of their social life. However, negative Sixes are quite the opposite. They are the most inhospitable people imaginable. Sixes become restless and disoriented when social events become too frequent and keep them away from their homes for long periods,. A few hours could be a long period for a home loving Six. This is not a problem with the Thirteen who could concentrate on enjoying themselves free of homesickness. They could be among the last guests to leave a party or even among those who overstay their welcome. If this tendency develops into a habit it will certainly cause problems with their Six partners.
Communication between these partners should not be difficult as both enjoy fluency of speech. However, any emotionally charged issues may be avoided as they may feel embarrassed to reveal and discuss their sentiments. Emotional plane vibrations in their birth months will increase their capacity for communicating their feelings. The Thirteen may hold implicit faith in their own views and assert them with certainty and authority in a good choice of words and use of confident body language. But they would need to be fair and just before they are accepted by the clear-minded Six. No egoistic, self-seeking or monopolistic opinions will go unchallenged. The Six’s underlying strength is revealed when confronted by one-sidedness in any form. When aroused they are quite adept in debate and argument, and can easily match the Thirteen’s variety of lines of reasoning in support of their views. In matters that do not directly relate to mundane activities the Six may choose to remain uncommunicative as they realise that certain abstract matters such as beauty, sound, love, faith, tranquillity and spirituality are better experienced than expounded. Thirteens insist on accuracy of language at all times but a Six, when they are not engaged in serious discussion, may not be as insistent on an exact choice of words. While all Thirteens are self-assured conversationalists the degree of confidence in the Six personality determines their measure of success as talkers. Both contribute a good sense of humour. Anyone may fall victim to a Thirteen’s sense of humour which could contain elements of sarcasm, derision or criticism if they choose to do so. A Six’s humour is invariably victimless as they take care to avoid hurting people. They are also good mimics and storytellers. A positive Six without a fund of funny stories and anecdotes will be quite an exception.
Six people have a natural inclination to identify themselves with individuals and groups with which they interact. Consequently, they become aware of a great variety of human experiences which do not come their way through their own volition. As they are non-competitive people who are never over keen on exhibiting themselves, participation and cooperation are as pleasurable as the eventual outcome of any activity they undertake. Alternatively, Thirteens are motivated by a strong competitive spirit, and far from identifying themselves with any person or group, they insist on displaying their individuality and surpassing others in whatever they do. These differences in attitude become evident in the leisure activities of these partners. In addition, the physical vibrations of the Thirteen provide abundant vital energy so that more physical activity is needed by them in order to unwind. The Six tends towards physical relaxation and mental pleasures to recharge their batteries. These constitutional differences, however, do not separate them in the realms of music, art and literature. Evidence of their mutual attraction to the arts will be observed in the beautification of their home. Both possess a keen eye for beauty and form in a comprehensive sense, and the talents not only to create beauty of their own but to appreciate and enjoy it in the creations of others. The only factor that could place limits on their interests in the diversified world of art would be their financial position.
6TH AND 14TH BIRTHDAYS
The uniform personality structure fashioned by the single digit of the 6th day and the multiform personality structure formed by the 14th day establish the principal difference in this birthday combination. Tile Six personality born on the 6th day will typify characteristics of the 6 vibration either in its positive or negative form, but more frequently with a mixture of both. The Fourteen, who is in fact a qualified Five personality (1 + 4 = 5), will not exemplify obvious 5 qualities due to the overwhelming influence of the physically oriented 1 and 4 vibrations. However, certain 5 qualities are strengthened by these vibrations while others are reduced in power or fully removed. Happily, those that are strengthened are the better qualities and those that are reduced or removed are the less desirable ones. The chapter on the 5th and 6th birthdays will be interesting to a reader who wishes to go deeper into the study of comparative birthdays. It deals with the relationship between a Six personality and an outright Five while the present chapter relates to the compatibility or otherwise of a Six and a qualified Five.
The number 6 symbolises a receptive vibration operating at the centre of the mental plane. In its positive aspect it represents balance and harmony in all things which is reflected in a positive Six personality by evenly distributed personality traits. They lead well planned and orderly lives using their clear-sighted mentality to tactfully avoid or sensibly overcome disharmony, discord, tension and unnecessary speed in their environment. Love, companionship, service and a happy family life are vital factors for fulfilment of the Six’s purpose in life and all Sixes conscientiously devote their energies towards this realisation. When these personalities swing too far towards negative aspects of their birth force they lose their sense of balance and mental stability and resort to one-sided or erratic behaviour. Their personality is flawed by preoccupation with self-generated fears, depressive moods, suspicions, jealousies and dramatisation of minor domestic incidents. They are burdensome partners as they lose their sense of responsibility which is a characteristic of the positive side of the 6 vibration. The degree of positivity or negativity in a Six personality, as in many others, depends on the strength of the self-propelling 1 vibration in the birth date or name. This vibratory force provides the willpower and self-confidence needed for maximum use of the potentiality of the birth force. It operates as a primary force when it appears in the birthday as a secondary force in the birth month. As a secondary force it is sufficient to infuse positive attitudes but in other spheres of influence its powers are lessened. Six personalities born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will be positive Sixes while others will fluctuate between positive and negative attitudes. The Sphere of influence containing the 1 vibration and the efforts made towards self-improvement will determine how far the personality turns one way or the other.
The 14th day presents no doubts as regards positive or negative orientation of the individual. All Fourteens are emphatically positive people as the presence of the 1 vibration in the birthday as a primary force contributes all the ego strength and initiative needed for positive living. It also draws out the best features of the 4 vibration and the basic 5. The vitality of the 1 and the solidity of the 4 represent the strongest physical forces. People subject to them have their feet firmly planted on the ground and are endowed with dual creative powers. The mind and hands combine in the Fourteen through the pioneering and creative spirit of the 1 and the manual dexterity of the 4. This is a combination which gives a Fourteen the capability to convert into physical reality all their mental creations. They are also supported by the competitive, enterprising courageous and versatile spirit of the underlying 5 vibration. The Fourteen/Five is a solid and dependable individual with none of the restless, impulsive, changeable, risky and unconventional traits of the emotionally motivated Fives born on the 5th or 23rd days. They belong to the steady type of partner sought after by the home loving Six. Conversely, a Six personality who is generally positive in outlook makes an ideal partner for the hardworking Fourteen.
Objectives that Sixes and Fourteens have in common are more interrelated and binding than any differences in expectations that may divide them. Their first priority will be to establish a comfortable and stable domestic life. Personal sacrifices will be made willingly in the process of doing so. The Six is essentially an indoor person and domestic duties such as cooking and home maintenance will readily be undertaken by them. The Fourteen prefers work in the outdoors or in a den of their own. A good deal of heavy physical work will be contributed by this partner. They are genuine handypersons who are happiest when repairing or making something. Speedy progress will be made in this partnership through the initiative and leadership of the Fourteen and the cooperation of the Six. A Six personality does not regard a supporting role as an erosion of their individuality. On the contrary, they are at their best when their partners or dependants need them most. A Six breadwinner could dutifully finish a day’s work and take up a second shift in household chores, especially in preparing the evening meal, as all Sixes are natural cooks. Nor will the Fourteen shirk an equal share of domestic responsibilities. They are not the type that would sit back and overload their partners with work. However, with unlimited resources of physical strength, increased capacity for decisive action and self-assertiveness the Fourteen is better equipped to take up the permanent role of breadwinner while the Six’s role remains optional. The Six’s talents as the chief breadwinner are not to be underrated, but, on a comparative basis, they may not match the productivity of a Fourteen or the capacity to function uncompromisingly in highly competitive situations.
The social aspirations of these partners are not quite the same but are not likely to come into collision. As the humanitarian side of life attracts the mental Six their interest is in people and their welfare while Fourteens are attracted to objects and activities by virtue of their physical and practical attributes. The combination of these different attitudes will have a beneficial impact on people who come into contact with this couple and will inevitably enhance their social popularity. The Six is inclined towards an idealistic interpretation of life and is often happy to fall in with other peoples’ wishes, making an effort to please them. The Fourteen is closer to a realistic interpretation and is not as ready to sacrifice self-interest to the same degree. Both are open to new experiences, but they may not always agree to act at the same time. Six personalities vary in their moods, and acceptance of new experiences will depend on their mental state. The Fourteen can expect rejection when the Six is depressed and acceptance when they are elated. Fourteens are free from moodiness and their choice of social activities is influenced by expedience only. It is important for many Sixes to question their self-image as the opinion they hold of themselves will affect the way they see the world and the image they project, and also their quality of life as a whole.
Being constitutionally inclined towards a leisurely pace and a sedentary lifestyle the Six has the opportunity to turn conversation into a fine art. Freedom from restlessness, genuine concern for the welfare of others, natural talents as teachers, storytellers, humorists, counsellors and confidants offer an unlimited range of topics for conversation. Fourteens are people of action with neither the time or inclination to qualify as good conversationalists. Lacking the diplomacy which characterises the Six’s speech and being less tolerant of contradictory opinions, Fourteens are forthright in speech with firm opinions that are seldom altered. Sensitive persons who are unaware of their sincerity may take offence at their direct methods of expressing themselves. A tactful and patient Six partner will soon overcome this problem by an indirect approach taking great care to spare the Fourteen’s self-esteem. Although the underlying 5 vibration in the Fourteen is a highly communicative force oral expression is somewhat inhibited by the 1 and 4 vibrations which tend almost exclusively towards action, than speech for self-expression. Precise speech and authoritative body language are used to supplement fluency of speech. As the Six speaks for the pleasures derived from oral communication there is no doubt that communication between these partners will be initiated and helped along by the Six.
Indoor pastimes preferred by the Six and outdoor activities taken up by the Fourteen may disrupt the Six’s desire to share all their experiences. The Fourteen’s attraction to physical and competitive activities is largely due to their need to release pent-up energy on the playing field, against the forces of nature or in some creative activity. As competitors they aim for victory at all cost. Winning recognition of their physical superiority over others is essential to their self-image. The Six does not avoid participation in sporting activities but may show a stronger attraction to indoor games, music, literature and other mentally stimulating hobbies. Many Sixes are attracted to the culinary arts and home beautification. Fourteens are by no means incompetent cooks and homemakers but their outdoor hobbies usually allow the Six free rein within the home. A pastime that will provide a good deal of mutual pleasure will be their regular patronage of restaurants specialising in gourmet cooking. Though the Fourteen may be satisfied with quantity and good energy-giving food the Six looks for high quality and considerable variety in food. Health foods could be a specialty taken up by many Sixes.
Mismanagement of money which can be a serious cause for distrust and dissension in many partnerships should not be experienced by Sixes and Fourteens. Both partners are discriminating money managers who can accept the discipline of living within their means. They are most unlikely to operate at cross-purposes in their spending habits. The Six is naturally proficient at budgeting for all domestic needs, but due to an undertone of anxiety over their financial position they look for constant reassurance of their financial stability. A Fourteen partner will fulfil this need without conscious effort as freedom from anxiety, self-discipline and self-confidence are among their best assets. The idea of a secret personal savings account will not enter the mind of the Six; a Fourteen may conceive the idea and carry it out. However, they are unlikely to do so with a trustworthy Six partner.
The sexual needs of these partners are not as evenly balanced as other aspects of their relationship. As mentally oriented individuals Sixes do not necessarily need recourse to physical action to make known their love. They are idealists who comfortably go as far as showing platonic love to their partners. Their sexual desires are stimulated and fulfilled only within an atmosphere of caring, romance, tranquillity and mutual respect. They cannot be disassociated from a feeling of oneness with their partners. They need to be approached with caution as their responses cannot always be taken for granted. This is the main obstacle to be overcome from the point of view of the highly sexed Fourteen. While the Six will find it hard to separate love and sex, a Fourteen could dispense with this atmosphere of oneness and easily enjoy the physical pleasures of sex only. The three vibrations which comprise the Fourteen’s structure are among the strongest sexual forces. While the Six may demonstrate love in many non-sexual and altruistic ways the Fourteen needs physical expression to do so. Their sexual needs will therefore be far in excess of that of their Six partners. The non-emotional mentality of both partners is a certain safeguard against impulsive spending of money. They are not averse to the occasional spree but as a rule they are responsible money managers. The relationship is not likely to be endangered by distrust and arguments over money. The Fourteen’s lifestyle, being more varied, may demand higher expenditure but there is a built-in safeguard that prevents them from being extravagant or wasteful. The Six is likely to suffer anxiety over their financial position even though they may be well placed in life, but the Fourteen’s optimism and confidence will allay most of their worries.
These partners are certain to pursue a common quest for achieving a high quality of material prosperity and elevation of the moral tone of their life. They are conscientious and duty-bound people who seldom falter in their commitments, and the one commitment that will receive their special devotion will be their love and loyalty to each other. The mental horizons shared by both are ageless and unlimited. Friendship and romance will always enliven and refresh their relationship. The Fourteen, without doubt, will be more responsive and take the more active part in their love life. They are not conditioned by mood nor do they need to be physically stimulated. The sexual needs of the Six are not as urgent and demanding as the physically oriented Thirteen. Their physical responses therefore cannot always be taken for granted. Both partners will need to make certain adjustments to cope with their different physical needs.
6TH AND 15TH BIRTHDAYS
A positive Six personality is one in whom attributes of impersonal love are manifested as a natural impulse. While family and home have first claim on their love, loyalty and service, it is also in character with their humanitarian temperament to extend their influence beyond family obligation into neighbourhood and community service. More than anything else the opportunity to be of service helps the Six build self-esteem and a good self-image. Six personalities are formed by the 6th, 15th and 24th days of the month. Those with the 6th and 24th birthdays are closely related as their personality structure is made up of even numbers representing receptive vibrations. They can readily be identified individually or as a couple as characteristics of the 2, 4 and 6 vibrations, though operating on different planes of expression, infuse the personality with very much the same aims in life and about the same degree of incentive to go about achieving their aims. They adopt an unhurried and even-tempered manner as opposed to the assertive and dynamic ways of people influenced by active forces. The 6th day generates pure 6 characteristics and the 24th day, with vibrations flowing through physical, emotional and mental planes, emphasises and enriches these traits and provides additional outlets for self-expression. The 15th day creates a personality who is in many ways a breakaway from the standard Six type. Active vibrations symbolised by the odd numbers 1 and 5 operating in the foreground of the Fifteen/Six are responsible for this difference. A Fifteen is hardly recognisable as a Six personality, and indeed, this individual cannot be expected to function in many respects as the vigorous nature of the 1 and 5 forces are in direct contrast to the deliberate nature of the 6. More importantly, they are responsible for creating an altogether positive individual. One needs to be quite familiar with a young Fifteen to observe latent 6 qualities but the domestic and humanitarian instincts of the vibration become apparent in the older Fifteen.
Sixes and Fifteens see people and incidents from different viewpoints for the most part, and therefore react differently. The Six takes up a defensive and protective stance while the Fifteen sees everything as a challenge and an opportunity for new experience. These personalities will be attracted to each other by their dissimilarities as much as by their similarities, and the magnetism that draws them together in the first instance can only increase in strength as they proceed to discover each other. Though separate and identifiable they are still interrelated and interconnected by virtue of the 6 force. An exception to this happy combination will be a partnership between a Fifteen and wholly negative Six. While concentrated 6 qualities form the Six individual’s source of strength they could also be their source of weakness or negativity if not supported by counterbalancing forces that provide additional facets to the integral personality. The 6 vibration on its own does not provide the degree of willpower, self-confidence, self-esteem, resolution, self-discipline and ambition to maximise the Six individual’s self-image and potential. These self-assertive and self-assured qualities, and much more, are acquired through the 1 vibration. When this vibration is present in the birth month the Six is a positive person by birth, although a harsh environment or neglected upbringing can erode some degree of their positivity. The power of the 1 vibration in other areas of influence may not be as effective and the Six may fluctuate between positive and negative attitudes. These Sixes can derive considerable strength from a Fifteen partner and in turn respond with the best attributes of their birth force. All Sixes need a positive partner and an enjoinment of peace and stability before they are able to give of their best. The problem Sixes are those who do not possess the 1 vibration in sufficient strength, or those who could be overloaded with mental numbers, especially the repetition of the number 6 in the birth month. Far from taking advantage of the Fifteen partner’s positivity these Sixes will stubbornly resist all attempts to introduce happiness, generosity and open-mindedness into their own lives and the lives of their loved ones. Nursing negative attitudes becomes a habit, and habitual attitudes which will invariably be directed into their domestic lives can restrict their vision and repress the normal generous gifts of their birth force. Anyone outside their immediate family will be treated with suspicion. An uninhibited Fifteen partner will find such an atmosphere extremely oppressive.
Six people are at their best when motivated by a strong sense of purpose and there is nothing more imperative in a Six’s life path than a harmonious and secure state of domesticity. Although not evident on the surface the same needs underlie the Fifteen’s aspirations. However, with an extended range of awareness and enterprise the Fifteen responds to much wider horizons and is unlikely to let themselves be tied down by domestic routine. They may find it difficult to get through to a badly negative Six but will certainly help the average Six break out of limitations they have imposed upon themselves through lack of enterprise. Fifteens become unsettled and unfulfilled without a career in public life. A career as a homemaker will not supply the excitement, challenges, competition, changes and movement needed by this energetic individual. The Six, however, can choose between a career in public life or one as a homemaker, or undertake both. They usually follow occupations that generate the least amount of tension, competition or the compromise of their strict ethical values. The question as to who will be the leader and decision maker is not likely to become an issue in this partnership. All Fifteens are confident of what they can accomplish and invariably turn restless and disoriented if they do not feel in control of their lives, whether in a partnership or not. They are not types who would adjust to an inferior or subordinate status. Fortunately this situation will not be faced with a Six partner. The Six does not believe that it is important to be in control. Their preference is towards an equal partnership but their easygoing temperament can also settle for a supportive role under the leadership of a strong and rational partner such as a Fifteen. The tempo of life takes a heavier toll on the Six’s physical and nervous resources, but the Fifteen is better equipped to handle the complexity of life at all levels.
Both Sixes and Fifteens are extroverted people, yet there is an element of diffidence in the Six that is not found in the Fifteen. Sixes are inclined to act as they believe they should in terms of prevailing social norms and their own ethical standards. A Six will not attempt to persuade an individual or group into or out of any course of action that could be detrimental to their wellbeing. They fit easily into traditional or middle-of-the-road sections of society and gain popularity by their awareness of the sensibilities of others and willingness to perform kindly services in word and deed. They are generous hosts and hostesses and delightful and considerate guests. Fifteens are much more individualistic than the Sixes, are inclined to do as they please and could use manipulative techniques to get others to conform to their wishes. They can be relied upon to break out of a vicious circle of events or a sticky situation without hesitation or a touch of conscience. However, such measures will seldom be carried to an extent that could damage their popularity. The Six is a companionable personality who is never weary of refined social intercourse, but the Fifteen needs the freedom to move in and out of social life as the mood hits them. These different social attitudes, rather than causing problems between these partners, will benefit both. The presence of a self-assured partner will help the Six relax in company and give more than they would normally give when functioning on their own. At the same time, the influence of the Six will ensure that their social life does not interfere with a close family circle and family responsibilities.
Conversation between these partners should be free from inhibitions. Both are generally truthful and realistic in what they say and intolerant of devious and long-winded speakers. As the Six’s ego consciousness is not as strong as that of the Fifteen they are able to discuss impersonal topics with greater freedom. They are also good listeners and people trustfully open out personal problems to them. With a strong sense of individuality Fifteens are likely to talk about their own likes and dislikes and express their opinions without fear or favour. They are often impatient listeners who expect people to solve their own problems as they do their own. Witty observations made by both partners lead to a good deal of laughter and camaraderie, but arguments may also be frequent when the Six takes up an idealistic and humanitarian view of things and the Fifteen holds on to practical and opportunist views.
Freedom to pursue their individual interests during their leisure time will be enjoyed by both. An emphasis on mental and communal pastimes, at the expense of emotional and physical experiences, will be observed by the Six. Home entertainment, the culinary arts, music, literature, social service, counselling and honorary positions in secular or religious bodies will be among their many interests. In contrast, all three planes of expression will be used by the Fifteen, with a partiality for sensational, physical and open-air activities. Pent-up emotions and physical energy demand release through competition in popular sports and against the forces of nature. The urge to court danger in sport, travel and adventure which is an uncharacteristic feature of the 6 vibration, is introduced into the Fifteen by the 1 and 5. The Fifteen’s activities will invariably be of a nature that would incur a greater strain on the partnership’s financial resources than those of the Six, and this may cause concern in the minds of the Six.
Money for its own sake does not dominate the Six’s thoughts but the security it provides is their principal concern. Most Sixes have a balanced and responsible attitude towards money management and a few could be obsessed by anxiety over financial matters, damaging much of the quality of life. Fifteens are generous and often self-indulgent spenders but the natural caution of the fundamental 6 force acts as a safeguard against excessive expenditure and risky ventures. The general mentality of these partners has a bearing on their different attitudes towards their financial position. As in all things Sixes are mindful of consequences and their future in general, while Fifteens cannot be said to be unmindful their natural optimism prevents unreasonable fears from spoiling their everyday activities and sense of wellbeing.
With very few exceptions Six partners are prepared to subordinate many personal demands and commit themselves totally to their relationship and family, but Fifteens tend to retain a portion of their freedom and individuality. They are not as quick to see that personality adjustments are a mutual need. Sixes need to share their joys and sorrows. Fifteens share their joys but do not feel the need to seek a confidant for their sorrows, preferring to work through their troubles alone. They are very much in command of themselves in times of stress. The personality differences of Sixes and Fifteens should not turn into problems that divide them, but instead as reciprocal strengths that unite them. Fifteens will keep romance alive by insisting that family matters do not tie them down. This is a position into which many Sixes get themselves at the expense of their romantic lives. Fifteens can also abandon themselves with greater freedom to sexual expression. Their physical needs are certainly more than those of the Six and they do not inhibit spontaneity by too close an analysis of what they should do or should not do. Physical pleasures of life are enjoyed without being turned too much into moral or social issues. Nor do variations in mood govern their sex life. A Six needs to be approached with caution as their instant physical responses cannot be taken for granted. Mood, time and atmosphere have to coincide before spontaneous responses are generated.
6TH AND 16TH BIRTHDAYS
People with single digit birthdays and those born on the 10th, 20th and 30th days of the month generally possess a uniform personality structure. However, secondary facets may be derived from the birth month, birth year and name. Those with multiple digit birthdays acquire a multiform personality structure which is further diversified by other areas of influence. Depending on the nature of their vibrations there are advantages as well as disadvantages in both groups. The principal advantage in the former is the ability to give concentrated attention to a task or a chosen experience. The individual is not distracted by possible opposing forces within their personality which could pull them in other directions at the expense of what they have undertaken. The principal disadvantage is that they may get tied down to an habituated lifestyle through a restricted outlook. The Six personality presents itself as a good example. The latter group may have all the advantages of flexibility, versatility and enterprise as their personality in most cases is activated by the powers of no less than three vibratory forces. However, these forces could operate in conjunction with each other forming a well integrated personality or work in opposition to each other creating a divided personality. The sympathetic and cohesive qualities of the well integrated personality ensure a clear sense of direction which is often lost in the divided personality. The Sixteen belongs indisputably to the well integrated group.
While all Sixteens are well integrated people not all Sixes are as stable and well balanced. Governed by a single mentally oriented vibration the Six depends on other areas of the birth date and name for additional facets to their personality. A vibration that provides ego strength, self-confidence, initiative, self-esteem and self-assertiveness is what they need most, and lacking them, the Six tends towards negative aspects of their birth force. Negative features are emphasised when the individual is overloaded with mental numbers (3, 6, & 9) in the birth date and given name. These negative Sixes are often depressive, fearful, nagging and uncooperative people who are the least desirable as partners in life. Their positive counterparts on the other hand are the most desirable. A positive Six is one who possesses the self-directing 1 vibration in the birth month. This is the only vibration that provides all the qualities needed for confident self-expression. It also provides practicality and down-to-earth values as opposed to the idealism characteristic of the 6 force. Six people with this vibration in other areas of the birth date or in their name may vary in their degree of positivity. These Sixes are receptive to positive feedback from strong partners such as a Sixteen and, in time, overcome many of their negative attitudes. They are to be welcomed as compatible partners for the Sixteen or any other strong personality, for that matter.
With the 1 vibration functioning prominently in the Sixteen’s birthday this personality is by birth a positive individual. Other areas of influence serve only to strengthen existing facets or open out new ones. A Sixteen is in fact a qualified Seven personality as the underlying force of the 16th day is the 7 vibration (1 + 6 = 7). A comparison of the chapter on the 6th and 7th birthdays with the present chapter will reveal the difference in a Six individual’s relationship between a plain Seven and a qualified Seven. The 25th day also produces a qualified Seven with whom the Six will experience a relationship of a different description.
Neither the Six nor the Sixteen has an outlet into the emotional plane. In the case of the mentally oriented Six this is not as essential as an outlet into the physical plane would be, helping them place their feet firmly on the ground. A Six born in the 12th month is most fortunate as this is the only month that provides outlets into the physical and emotional planes. The Sixteen, who is already strong on the physical and mental planes will benefit from an emotional outlet. Compatibility between Sixes and Sixteens arise from marked similarities and harmonies in their temperament. Many differences will be such that assist and enrich their relationship rather than divide them. The common touch of the 6 vibration is obviously the principal uniting factor. It is the path of love, companionship, marriage, domesticity and responsibility. Other features which are part and parcel of this life path are peace, tranquillity, diplomacy, rationality and deliberation culminate in helping a 6 subject establish an even tenor of life. No 6 subject can be hurried or crowded into decisions, promises or action by impatient people. They are known for their unflappability and impetuosity, distaste for speed, excitement, noise, and discord. While 6 qualities are nurtured in varying degrees of strength in the Six partner they are steadfast in the Sixteen through the support of the 1 vibration. This vibration also contributes leadership, decision, willpower, self-discipline and ambition.
The Sixteen partner will introduce these qualities into the partnership using the tact and diplomacy of the 6 aspect of their personality so that the authoritative role assumed by them will not be found oppressive by the Six. In any event the Six does not seek a role of outright leadership in private or public life. They are satisfied to play a supportive role alongside a strong partner. The only occasions a partner would face a revolt from a Six would be when they act irresponsibly and selfishly in regard to family affairs and money matters. A Sixteen will not give them occasion to do so. The 7 vibration as an essential part of the Sixteen makes additional contributions towards the compatibility of these partners. Seven subjects share with the Six the same need for harmony in their environment. Strong Sevens may go even further and cultivate silence, introspection and strict privacy. These pure 7 qualities cannot be as strong in the Sixteen but would be present in a degree that would complement the needs of the 1 and 6 aspects of their personality as well as the needs of the partnership.
Professional careers in education, medicine and finance will be more in keeping with the temperament of both partners than business ventures. Certain high ideals, ethical standards and a spiritual outlook on life prevent them from entering highly competitive fields that may involve any compromise of their ideals. If they do enter business, which they are suited to do in partnership, small enterprises in food, accommodation, clothing, household goods and news agencies will suit them best. Either partner can also successfully undertake homemaking as a career or combine a career in public life with domestic responsibilities. However, if it falls to the lot of one partner to remain in full-time domestic duties the Six partner will be fulfilled in this position.
Social life will be as much in harmony and joyful as their domestic life. The protective and responsible instincts innate in both partners will ensure that they do not place each other in positions that require them to face or do anything one or the other would not do. Social engagements whenever possible will be undertaken as a twosome. These are extroverted people who gain popularity through friendliness, service and hospitality. Their goodwill approach and willingness to help invariably evokes an appropriate response from others. Sensitive to right and wrong, refinement and crudity, they are attracted to genteel sectors of society and recoil from conditions that offend their sensibilities. Except for negative Sixes, their natural tendency is to see good in others rather than evil. There may be occasions they find themselves let down as the goodness they see in others may only be a projection of their own thoughts. The Six would be the more accessible and perhaps sympathetic partner who may unwittingly become involved with the problems of others, thereby forfeiting time to solve their own. They relate their own moods and happiness too closely to the moods of those around them. Sixteens are not as ready to warm up to people. They hold part of themselves in reserve and seldom expose their thoughts and feelings. They look forward to periods of solitude more than their Six partners.
Communication between these partners will be free from tension, irrelevancies, irrationality and provocative language. They are able to reach compromises without feeling a loss of individuality as their rational minds function with honesty and fair-mindedness in all their judgments. It is natural for them to do and say the right thing and consequently the need for argument or long discussions seldom arises. However, they could be formidable in argument and debate on the occasions they are confronted by people who are illogical and unreasonable. They express themselves clearly on impersonal matters as their objective views are not blurred by an excess of egotism or the need to advertise themselves. Body language will be subdued but meaningful. The Six may be the more talkative partner who merrily maintains flow of conversation from a rich stock of stories and anecdotes. The unruffled and sympathetic atmosphere around the Six invites confidence and trust. Sixteens who are as open and accessible enjoy periods of silence. They are happier asking questions than answering them and tend to keep their observations and opinions to themselves. They do not feel the need to invent talk, and lulls in conversation do not necessarily mean there is tension or distance between themselves and their partners.
Home will be more than a retreat from the hustle and bustle of public life for both partners. It will be the focal point for most of their leisure activities. With a mutual appreciation of beauty, cleanliness, order and design much of their time and energy will be spent on home beautification and maintenance. The Six is likely to pay more attention to the house itself while the Sixteen will be attracted to the garden. Their combined efforts will certainly result in a home noted for its beauty, comfort and hospitality. Their responsiveness and enjoyment of beauty is not confined to tangible things but also extended into music, literature and the discussion of abstract topics such as psychology, para-psychology and metaphysics. The Sixteen may show a keener interest in these subjects as their intellectual curiosity is sharpened by the 7 vibration’s need to look below the surface of things. The Six may show a special interest in health foods, restoratives, sanitation and various preventive measures against ill-health. Many Sixes specialise in the culinary arts. Home cooking is never regarded as a troublesome duty but taken up with pleasure and often turned into an art form.
Quarrels arising from irresponsible money management should not be a feature of this partnership. Both partners are careful spenders and cautious investors. Borrowing money has a disturbing effect on their sense wellbeing and is therefore kept for essentials such as housing and motor vehicles. As they are not victims of fashion or impulsive buying they are able to live within their means. The Six partner however may suffer anxiety over their financial future regardless of how stable their position may be. Their anxieties will be relieved by the Sixteen’s faith in themselves and in the future.
To have someone for whose welfare and happiness they feel responsible brings real fulfilment to both personality types. The success of this partnership is then derived from the atmosphere of caring and camaraderie established by their combined efforts. They do not take each other or their good fortune for granted and constantly work on their relationship with other family members. On account of their common aims, differences that arise from time to time will be discussed coolly and rationally and agreement will be reached without a residue of bitterness or resentment. They are not personally demanding people and as such are able to put each other’s needs first. Life itself holds more to them than the accumulation of worldly goods and status symbols. Both seek contentment and work on the principle that one of the secrets of happiness is not in doing what one likes but in liking what one has to do.
6TH AND 17TH BIRTHDAYS
The old adage that it takes two to make a quarrel is made on the assumption that the peaceful and composed disposition of one person is sufficient to prevent disagreement and discord in most circumstances. With a few exceptions people born on the 6th day are proof of the accuracy of this maxim. The Six personality, however, is not a doormat or one who sits back and hopes that peaceful conditions will automatically fall to their lot. They take up an active role in creating and maintaining an environment of harmony. However, they do so by using natural characteristics of friendliness, service, honesty, responsibility, diplomacy and understanding rather than assuming prerogatives of outright leadership. Six people are not meant to live or work alone, but rather as companions, associates, helpmates, guardians, parents, team-mates, good neighbours, friends in times of need, and above all as consummate marriage partners. They are mentally oriented people who are not activated by impulse or coercion. Instead, their motivation shows thoughtful analysis and high principles. Attempts to rush them into decisions or action will only result in withdrawal and inactivity. A Six will not agree to a move that may, in their opinion, cause discomfort or loss to anyone. Special conditions are needed for a Six to flourish, as many of them may be weak in self-confidence, optimism, enterprise and competitiveness. With a positive partner to bolster these features the Six can make full use of their potential. These ideal conditions can be realised with a partner born on the 17th day.
Personality traits of Sixes and Seventeens complement each other in ways that could meet all their expectations. Few adjustments will be called for in the course of their relationship and these will be made without resentment. Seventeens possess all the qualities that a Six would look for in a partner such as self-sufficiency, organisation, responsibility, and rational and down-to-earth attitudes. However, on the negative side, the Seventeen is inclined to be intolerant, dogmatic and inflexible. While the Six derives effective feedback from their positive qualities they are able to cope with and, in the longer term, break down many of the Seventeen’s negative features. They do not have the personality traits that lead the Seventeen to experience high degrees of frustration. Seventeens, who are not overloaded with patience and understanding, are seldom able to suffer fools gladly. The rational mentality of a Six partner will pose no such problem. On the contrary, the Six can take rank with the Seventeen at all mental levels.
Characteristics of the 6 vibration are centralised in the Six personality by virtue of the single digit of their birthday. Not all sixes exhibit their 6 attributes in the same manner or to the same degree. The vibration of the birth month principally (and to a lesser extent the vibrations of the birth year and name) are responsible for these variations. Regarding positive or negative application of their powers they fall generally into three classes – the clearly positive personalities, the negative personalities and those who alternate between these states. The deciding factor is the action of the 1 vibration which activates and strengthens the ego-consciousness of the individual. Sixes with this vibration in their birth months are the positive Sixes and are ideal partners for Seventeens. Those with the 1 vibration in other areas will draw upon the strength of the Seventeen in moments of need but, for the most part, play an individual role as loyal, supportive and dependable partners. Latent or neglected possibilities become active powers alongside a positive partner. Sixes who are overcharged with mental vibrations in the birth date, especially the repetition of the 6 in the birth month suffer many obsessions such as jealousy, possessiveness, fear, depression, despair and escapism. They can also turn out to be nagging and oppressive people who enjoy being negative in their behaviour. Needless to say, life with such a partner will be quite intolerable in many ways.
The Seventeen is a blend of three individualistic and self-reliant forces. Though basically a qualified Eight personality (1+ 7 = 8), the 1 and 7 vibrations exercise a powerful influence upon the whole personality structure. Unlike certain multiple digit birthdays which contain restless and conflicting vibrations creating an unstable and mixed-up individual the vibrations of the 17th day correspond in ways that strengthen the integral personality. Positivity is an established trait by virtue of the 1 vibration as well as many self-sufficient features of the 7 and 8. There are, however, certain similarities in these forces which, when intensified by repetition in the birth month, give rise to dogmatic, intolerant and pedantic attitudes. The 1 and 8 have more aspects in common with each other than with the 7. The 7 operates as a check on excessive expression of combined 1 and 8 attributes. Authority, leadership, ambition, materialism, willpower, organisation, administration and aggressiveness are some features characteristic of the 1 and 8. These are modified by the 7 vibration’s attraction to mystic elements of life and non-attachment to the materialistic side. It also introduces an aura of aloofness around the personality which often acts as an advantage in dealing with others. It is not easy to draw near to a Seventeen, and many of them are misunderstood by the average person. The magnetic links between Sixes and Seventeens are created by the attraction of opposite polarities. In most such relationships the partners are faced with the need for many personality adjustments once the honeymoon magnetism begins to fade. However few adjustments will be needed between Six and Seventeen partners, as much the same expectations and priorities are cherished by both. Though they may set about achieving them in slightly different ways their willingness to accept the discipline of working towards a common goal will make things easy. The overall stability of the Seventeen will be seen by the Six as their most admirable feature and the Six’s rational mind and high sense of loyalty and responsibility will be seen by the Seventeen as their most desirable features.
Sixes are at their best when they are in a position of responsibility for the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of their loved ones. They are at their worst in a position of isolation and loneliness. Their instincts for guardianship, parenthood and companionship are so strong that some could lose their identity in their devotion to loved ones. Stronger Sixes can divide their loyalties between public duties and their family as well as preserve some sense of individuality. Though willing to take charge of domestic duties they do not actively seek a role as head of the family. Their preference will be for a state of joint authority. Alternatively, they will feel fulfilled in a supportive role which allows them freedom of action within the domestic scene. It will be the alternative role they will take up in partnership with a Seventeen. In all larger issues and matters that require instant decisions the Seventeen’s leadership will be accepted by them. As the more decisive individual the Seventeen will be too impatient to await the Sixes delayed decisions.
Sixes are pleasantly extroverted individuals in the sense that they enjoy helping others enjoy themselves. They are open personalities who do not harbour ulterior motives in their kindly actions or use people as a means to satisfy personal ends. Though slightly tentative in their manner they reach out to others with a genuine interest in their welfare. Consequently, they make sincere friendships and find it easier to ask others for help in times of need. Seventeens are also extroverted in their own way but they are not always as congenial and accessible as their Six partners. Generally needing more psychological distance between themselves and others they keep a portion of themselves in reserve. They are reluctant to surrender even a portion of their identity as individuals for the identity they receive from association with a group. They choose to move in society on their own terms, as they need to preserve the right to withdraw from social involvement whenever they feel the need to do so. Sixes, in contrast, feel comfortable and fulfilled in group activity. The only condition they strictly impose is the non-interference of social activities with domestic responsibilities. It is most unlikely that these different social attitudes will impair the harmony between these partners. On the contrary, they will instantly close ranks against interference or pressures from outside. The Six is certain to understand the Seventeen’s reservations and do their best to extend themselves when necessary. They may not have the same degree of confidence and self-possession as some social figures, but they do have a certain flair for attracting people and making them feel at ease. Furthermore, they do not perceive people and situations as threats to their freedom and privacy as a Seventeen is wont to do.
Oral communication between these partners will follow a similar pattern. Sixes are amiable, avid, engaging conversationalists who are open to discussion on all topical matters. However, one needs to be clear-headed and reasonable in communicating with a Six. Their rational minds are intolerant of inaccuracies and irrelevancies in recounting of facts and figures. They do not express disagreement loudly or aggressively because their peaceful and kindly disposition aided by the natural instincts of teachers and counsellors help them disagree and explain their points of view with patience and tolerance. As a general rule they do not vary their responses in different situations or at different times but will adhere instead to a fixed pattern of communication. Their normal attitude changes only when they fall into moods of melancholy or depression. Seventeens are intermittent conversationalists who favour in-depth conversation on practical or esoteric matters to discussions on routine matters. They may not always respond to a Six’s wish to analyse and discuss most things. They are lazy talkers who need strong motivation before they open up, and when they do some of them could be quite pedantic in their views. They could also be abrupt and curt in disagreement and say ‘no’ when they wish to in a definitive manner not realising they may be offending sensitive people. Many Seventeens enjoy an instinctive understanding of things so that they do not feel the need for discussion. In addition, they experience difficulty converting many of their abstract ideas into words. Communication between these partners may be interrupted from time to time when the Six experiences a spell of despondency and the Seventeen undergoes a bout of introversion. A Six born in the 6th month and a Seventeen born in the 7th month will be more susceptible to these problems than others. Verbal endearments will not be excessive but will be more forthcoming from the Six who will also be the first to resume communication after a period of non-communication, for whatever reason.
Different hobbies developed by these partners will strengthen the partnership rather than undermine their relations. The house will be the Six’s centre of activity. Home entertainment, home maintenance and beautification will take up much of their life. Food will be a special interest including health products, diets and restoratives. Once the domestic scene has been cared for, local organisations will benefit from their voluntary services. Seventeens, who are not really domesticated people will reap the full benefits of the Six’s love of indoor pastimes. They are driven outdoors by a strong urge to be in contact with the vitalising power of the earth and its living beings. The garden will be their special preserve in addition to outdoor activities as amateur botanists and naturalists. Not only will a good balance be achieved between the outdoor and indoor interests of these partners but also their sense of togetherness will be strengthened by mutual interest in music, art and literature. Many Seventeens may go further afield and turn into students of life and seek to understand themselves and their place in the universal scheme of things. Any travelling undertaken by these partners will be for educational purposes. The peace and tranquillity both experience in their home will be too strong to keep them away for long.
Among the strongest features both partners have in common is the ability to earn a steady income, to spend generously but judiciously on family and home needs, to make safe investments, avoid debt, pay their bills on time and put aside something for the future. In short, they are good money managers who should be able to trust each other to keep track of income and expenditure. They are not attached to money for its own sake but more so for the peace of mind derived from the security it brings. They work on the principle that money may not necessarily create happiness, yet the lack of it could cause unhappiness.
Six breadwinners make every effort to maintain a balance between devotion to their careers and devotion to their loved ones. Seventeens tend towards absorption in their careers while depending on their partners to hold up a greater part of the domestic side. They may give the impression that they are detached from family life but the reality is that they have the same basic need for belonging as does the Six. A Six partner will no doubt draw the Seventeen’s attention from time to time to the need for family togetherness. As emotional expression is restricted in both, verbal endearments and communication by touch may not be their favourite methods of demonstrating their love for one another. However, romantic interludes such as candlelight dinners in special spots, usually initiated by the Six, will keep romance alive. Devotion to duty, loyalty, high ethical standards and honesty will compose the real foundation on which their love and respect will endure. Sexual compatibility will be achieved when the Six accepts that the Seventeen’s needs will be more than their own and the Seventeen realises that the Six may not always be responsive to their demands.
6TH AND 18TH BIRTHDAYS
Attributes of our birthday vibrations which form the nucleus of our personality are used spontaneously and in full measure when we are gifted with a positive or constructive outlook on life. Without this essential frame of mind we fall short of exploiting all the possibilities of our birth force and at the same time expose ourselves to many of its negative features. Positivity means self-confidence, self-assertiveness, decision, willpower, leadership, initiative and similar self-sufficient traits. Negativity has an adverse effect on our potentiality, our sense of purpose and sense of direction. Indecision, a poor self-image, a lack of self-confidence and the lack of a sense of responsibility are some of the common problems. The only vibration that contains all the features needed for positive self-expression is the 1 vibration. In the range of vibratory forces symbolised by single digits it is known as the activator or energiser. When it does not occur in the birthday its presence in some degree of strength in other spheres of influence is essential. The birth month provides the best alternative position. Its effectiveness from the birth year or name is not as strong.
People born on the 6th day may be found in varying degrees of positivity or negativity depending on the strength and placement of the 1 vibration in their numerological chart. The possibility of acquiring negative traits increases if they happen to be overloaded with mental numbers (3, 6 & 9), especially the repetition of the number 6 in the birth month. The vibratory structure of the 18th day is such that positivity is an integral part of the personality. Six and Eighteen people will be attracted to each other by virtue of the magnetism between opposite polarities. The 6 vibration is a receptive force with a mental orientation. Hence, the Six individual with centralised 6 qualities seeks and attracts a partner whose personality is essentially a combination of active vibrations. The personality structure of the Eighteen is formed by the active 1 and receptive 8 as the prominent activating forces and the active 9 operating in the background. The peculiar nature of the receptive 8 is that it carries many characteristics that are more akin to active rather than receptive vibrations. Consequently, the Eighteen is an individual who is overwhelmingly controlled by active qualities.
Characteristics of receptive vibrations are generally the same but their application differs according to the plane of expression on which they operate. Imagination and a mental appreciation of life to the exclusion of emotionalism and physical dexterity are the hallmarks of mentally oriented people such as the Six personality. In keeping with the general nature of receptive forces the Six needs to think over matters before they arrive at decisions or pass judgments. This is a habit that could exasperate a quick thinking and quick acting partner. A wise partner will refrain from pressuring a Six into making immediate decisions or taking precipitate action. A fine sense of balance on which the Six operates is disturbed under coercion by an impatient partner. Eighteens may not always exercise patience and may go ahead and act independently. The Six needs to lead a peaceful and harmonious existence at their own pace and every effort is made to establish these conditions in their environment. They are not people who can live alone as love, companionship, loyalty, family ties and responsibility for the welfare of others are as natural to them as ambition for power and fame is natural to the Eighteen. Sixes are domesticated people whose centre of activity is in the home. Scant interest is shown in passing away their time in the homes of others or in public places. On the occasions they do so out of necessity they become short-term visitors as the irresistible desire to return home soon overtakes them. Some Sixes may take their attachment to home to extremes and lose their individuality in their loyalty and devotion to family and home. The average Six’s attachment to home does not, however, intrude upon their capacity and competence as breadwinners. On the contrary, it enables them to perform a dual role. They can do so without feeling a loss of fulfilment as they are not over ambitious for power and success. A happy family life will not be sacrificed for achievement in public life. They are usually found in the teaching and medical/health care profession as welfare workers, counsellors, personnel officers, musicians, comics and mimics, poets, interior decorators and chefs. In business they are attracted to the hospitality industry, gift shops, health food shops, home products and the care of the elderly as well as the care of the young.
While Sixes set about establishing well organised and methodical personal lives Eighteens direct the full force of their authoritative and administrative powers into public life. Domesticity will be as far from their thoughts as aggression, challenges, competition and the drive for personal power will be from the thoughts of the Six. They are highly motivated to attain clearly defined and self-appointed goals, not only to fulfil personal ambition but also to ensure their loved ones have security, comfort and prestige. They do not allow day-to-day family duties to interfere with concentration on their careers. They are excellent providers but the coexistence of personal and impersonal motives can be expected as a normal feature. It is possible for them to organise things in such a manner that they satisfy self-centred desires as well as fulfil many family obligations. There is no avenue of government or business administration that is closed to an Eighteen. Success as administrators is assured provided the scope and freedom to use their initiative is available. They are incapable of adjusting to subordinate or inferior status either in domestic or public life. Needless to say, the Eighteen will make all important decisions in this partnership while the Six bears the major responsibility for household management. The partnership’s success depends on the Eighteen being the principal provider and the Six the homemaker or supplementary provider. Both partners will be unfulfilled in the opposite situation. The Six will not be able to keep up with the high standards of living desired by an Eighteen nor will the Eighteen remain content solely in a domestic scene. Deprived of a broader sphere of activity in which they can use their administrative talents frustration will set in resulting in a dictatorial attitude towards family members.
Both Sixes and Eighteens are socially extroverted people with the difference that the Six merges happily into established conditions while the Eighteen strives to move in society on their own terms. Sixes are inclined to restrict their movements and self-expression due to sensitivity to loud spoken, unrefined and tactless individuals. Found in genteel society they relate to and attract people of all age groups. Eighteens are not immune to unpleasant conditions but sooner or later they use their natural authority and impose their own personality to alter distasteful conditions. While Sixes endeavour to conform to prevailing social graces Eighteens follow their own conception of conformity. They are not as ready to identify themselves with individuals or groups. Wider perspective and independence of thought are responsible for these differences, rather than a rebellious nature. People and their ordinary concerns are more important to the Six than physical activity, but the Eighteen favours physical activity over interaction with people. Sixes are more accessible and their services are readily available to those in need of friendship and help. They find time to keep in touch with distant friends and relatives. Many Eighteens fear that they may lose something of their cherished individuality if they submit to a close association with others, but the Six finds this essential for expansion of their individuality. Despite these personality differences the Six and Eighteen can adjust themselves to a happy state of balance in their social life. The Six’s home orientation and the Eighteen’s need for wider fields need not lead to dissension but can be turned to their mutual advantage. Eighteens will draw Sixes out of themselves and enliven and expand their horizons while the Six will see that nothing is carried too far by the Eighteen that may endanger family stability.
Oral communication is part and parcel of the genial nature and sociable lifestyle of most Sixes. This is not necessarily the case with the energetic Eighteen who gives much less time to practising the art of conversation. Unlike the Six who is ever ready for a good talk the Eighteen needs to be drawn out by a good motivating subject and when this happens they turn into enthusiastic and knowledgeable speakers. Unlike the non-aggressive Six they are less tolerant of contradictory views and will not hesitate to give peremptory opinions. The Six expects their partners to listen to their joys and sorrows. They like to be kept informed and share in discussions of everything relating to their relationship and family matters. Eighteens may share their joy but seldom open out with their problems which they endeavour to work out themselves. They look at evidence and quickly reach sound conclusions or solutions to their problems. Consequently, they show little patience for the Six’s wish to discuss, analyse and deliberate issues before reaching conclusions.
More leisure time will be set aside by the Six for rest and relaxation. Their hobbies will be home based or directed into local activities. They do not build up as much tension as an Eighteen in the course of their daily duties in public affairs or in private life as they are not given to speed, impatience and intolerance. Consequently, they are able to switch to private hobbies without an interval for unwinding. Eighteens expend an excess of energy and generate a good deal of frustration in public life. Their enthusiasm tends to keep them on a high. They usually react to aggression with aggression. Emotional turbulence is one of their problems. Tensions are built up as they tend to keep their feelings and hurts to themselves and, unlike the Six, they are not as ready to pass from a working session to a leisure period without some physical activity to release their tensions. Most Eighteens take to competitive sport as players, supporters, coaches and administrators. Sixes turn to mental hobbies such as music, art and literature. They broaden their understanding of human nature by associating with enlightened people and by identifying with role models they encounter in real life and in literature. Eighteens often seek their role models among successful business people and sport stars and they in turn become role models for others. It is most unlikely that these partners will try to impose their hobbies upon each other. Rather, their different interests and talents will give them strength and value as a team and contribute to the expansion of their relationship. The Six will appreciate the Eighteen’s need for outdoor activity while the Eighteen will benefit from the many rewarding hobbies taken up by the Six, particularly their interest is the culinary arts. Community service is one area in which both partners will combine their time and talents.
Good money management is a skill possessed by both partners. Following their enterprising temperament, the Eighteen will take the major role in managing larger financial matters and do so with optimism and confidence while the Six takes charge of day-to-day family budgeting. The Six suffers anxiety over their financial position and will not on their own accord take risks with their investments, nor will they give a thought to gambling in any form. Eighteens are not gamblers either but they are prepared to take calculated risks in investment and invariably emerge successful. Confidence in themselves and sound practical knowledge are their keys to success. Squabbles between these partners over money matters are not anticipated.
Pride is a strong motivating factor in the Eighteen personality just as peace and goodwill are the Six’s chief motivating forces. While the Eighteen expects outstanding achievements from their partners and children to enhance the family good name and status the Six expects them to develop into citizens with a humanitarian outlook on life. This is a good combination of attitude as the success they achieve will be an indication of the positive reinforcement each provides the other. The Six will emerge as a fatherly or motherly figure while the Eighteen emerges as a figure of authority. Six people are more romantic than sexual. Eighteens could be more sexual than romantic. Compatibility in their sex lives will be achieved when the Eighteen realises that the Six’s sexual responses cannot always be taken for granted and that they need to be gently stimulated into the right mood before responding. Sixes themselves know that their imagination is more powerful than their physical capacity. The patient Six will eventually discover that the Eighteen is by no means unromantic but their romantic ways are obscured and often suppressed by a self-conscious outer personality.
6TH AND 19TH BIRTHDAYS
The significant feature in this birthday combination will be the interplay of opposite forces or active and receptive vibrations. Receptive qualities of the mentally based 6 vibration predominate in the personality structure of all persons born on the 6th day. Other spheres of influence may strengthen or weaken the functioning of these qualities but they do not significantly change the hallmarks of a Six individual. The 19th day creates a personality with unusually strong active vibrations. Functioning in the outer personality as well as in the inner personality the active and physically oriented 1 vibration operates in double strength. The Nineteen is actually a qualified One personality (1 + 9 = 10 = 1). The 9 vibration which is responsible for qualifying the reinforced 1 qualities is also an active force, but it operates on the mental plane. The advantage in this blending is that the birth force can only be strengthened by other areas of influence and not be exposed to vibrations that may weaken the personality as may happen in the case of the Six.
The magnetism of opposite polarities will certainly be responsible for Six and Nineteen people being attracted to each other. Their differences will be complementary rather than divisive. As a consequence, many personality adjustments will not be needed and their relationship will fall into an agreed pattern, in which each will bear separate responsibilities. An exceptionally close union can be expected provided the Six partner is not weighed down by too many negative qualities. A Six who is mildly negative suffers from indecision, periods of melancholy and anxiety, loss of ambition and tendency to become over-committed to the problems of others, especially family members. As a result they risk losing much of their individuality. These Sixes receive a positive spin-off from association with a Nineteen which helps them build up good self-esteem and a strong self-image. Sixes with excessively negative traits are a real burden on any relationship as they are usually depressive, over-anxious, argumentative and suspicious people who are usually preoccupied with imaginary fears. The forces that ensure positive attitudes are found in the self-reliant attributes of the 1 vibration. The Six therefore depends on other areas of influence to provide these forces. The influence of the 1 vibration is most effective when it is found in the birth month. These Sixes are positive individuals while those with the 1 vibration in other areas of influence may fluctuate between negative and positive attitudes.
Characteristics which typify the average Six are serenity, the love of a quiet and peaceful lifestyle, rationality, orderliness, cleanliness, companionship, guardianship, domesticity, family life, sociability, hospitality and self-sacrifice. Maximum use of these splendid receptive qualities is made when the Six functions alongside a positive and dependable partner. While certain individuals feel a loss of individuality while working and living in close cooperation with another, the Six feels a sense of expansion of their personality. This will certainly take place in partnership with a Nineteen.
Among many other things, the 1 vibration symbolises beginning and the 9 represents completion. The interaction of these forces in the Nineteen results in a creative and comprehensive mentality. The 1 vibration provides confidence, assertiveness, leadership, decision, originality, willpower, concentration, dependability, independence, courage, ambition and vital energy. It is, however, also responsible for egotism, selfishness, self-centredness, rigidity and an apparent lack of tenderness. The 9 aspect of the Nineteen’s personality on the one hand strengthens the desirable qualities and opens up new horizons and on the other hand modifies the less desirable traits. Nine qualities which contribute to rounding off the Nineteen are usually the opposite of 1 qualities. Impersonal, humanitarian and worldwide perspectives minimise personal and individualistic attitudes, giving becomes more frequent than receiving or grasping, spiritual impulses function alongside those that are materialistic and cultural pursuits become as important as physical activities. As the 19th day is virtually an amalgamation of the 1 and 9 vibrations the chapters dealing with the 1st and 6th birthdays and the 6th and 9th birthdays will be of interest to a Six/Nineteen couple.
As mentioned earlier these partners will fall agreeably into a set pattern of living. The leading role will not become an issue because the Six will willingly acknowledge the Nineteen’s leadership. Sixes are by no means unquestioning followers. They are much too rational, humane and perceptive to support any action that does not meet with their high moral code and rational thought processes. However, it is not likely that they will be called upon to challenge a Nineteen partner because most of the Nineteen’s decisions will be made from a combination of practicality and wisdom. The Six will not be without authority and responsibility as this is clearly a partnership where one partner is domesticated and the other is not. Nineteens, following their natural tendencies will take overall responsibility for home and family, and the Six, following their natural disposition will take over the day-to-day management of domestic matters. The best conditions for success of the partnership will be a Nineteen breadwinner and a Six either in a dual role as part-time worker and homemaker or full-time homemaker. In the event of both partners spending the same time in public life it may not be easy to get the Nineteen to share equal duties in the home. The Six may, in any case, unconsciously take over more than an equal share and not feel disadvantaged. The fruits of the Nineteen’s high ambition and greater thrust in public life will compensate for the smaller share they take in daily domestic care. These partners are ideally suited for a family business in which the Six could take up a supportive role.
Social engagements will invariably be undertaken as a twosome. It is against the nature of the companionable Six who is totally committed to their relationship, to strike out on their own. Nor will the Nineteen ever feel the need to escape from the Six’s amiable company. The couple’s social position is enhanced by their combined extroverted qualities and their hospitable and benevolent dispositions. The Six does not need to extend themselves too much to acquire popularity, and many Sixes could be too shy to do so. They just need to be themselves, as their warm and friendly nature, devoid of all pretensions and artificiality, attracts people of all age groups and cultural levels. Their naturalness and the absence of tension and noise in the atmosphere they create around them almost instantly put people at ease. The Nineteen’s temperament does not in any way conflict with the Six’s genteel and convivial social attributes, indeed it complements them in many ways. While the receptive nature of the Six attracts people the Nineteen’s active temperament tends to reach out to others before they begin to feel isolated and ill at ease. Being outgoing and self-assured people they are able to cope with a greater variety of situations and personality types and at the same time remain personally un-involved while the Six may show a tendency to get too close to their experiences with people. Though neither partner will be known as a social butterfly the Six will always be sought after as helpers, confidants and hosts and hostesses and the Nineteen will emerge as society’s champions and leaders. The Six will take upon themselves the responsibility to ensure that their social involvement will not be carried to a point when it interferes with their stable family life.
Whereas qualities of the physical and mental planes are well represented in this combination of birthdays those of the emotional plane are missing. This is not an indication of the absence of emotion in the Six and Nineteen. Emotion is indeed a vital constituent of their integral personality. What is wanting is a channel for free expression of their emotions. In other words, they are usually undemonstrative people. Their birth months may, of course, contain an emotional number which will facilitate outward shows of emotion but the natural flow of emotion will not be as spontaneous as in emotionally oriented birthdays. The placid nature of the Six does not generate emotion to a degree that it can no longer be contained, and is forced to seek release in occasional outbursts. They show a greater tendency to turn inwards and fall into moods of melancholy or depression. Alternatively, Nineteens have characteristics that build up emotion to a point that it bursts out from time to time either in animated or angry demonstrations. While the tempo of the Six’s body language and oral expression seldom changes there may be many variations in the Nineteen. Sixes are natural conversationalists but they are not loud spoken, strident or authoritative in their manner. Their need to communicate is all part and parcel of their desire for companionship. They are unapproachable only on the occasions their moods take hold of them. The Nineteen’s desire for oral communication may not be urgent as they enjoy periods of silence as much as periods of conversation. When they do engage in conversation they are seen as authoritative and knowledgeable speakers who can discuss both abstract and concrete matters and proceed to greater depths that the average speaker. Many healthy discussions, debates and mild arguments can be expected between these partners. They are comparatively on the same mental level and a very diverse cultural and educational background will be the only factor that could interfere with communication between them.
As most Sixes are home based people they enjoy hobbies such as music, literature, cooking, home maintenance and other such home oriented pastimes. Their appreciation of beauty, colour, sound and harmony is exceptionally keen and they need to be surrounded by familiar, clean, comfortable, tasteful and attractive surroundings. The various tasks associated with the creation of this environment are turned into hobbies rather than looked upon as necessary chores. It is not easy to persuade a Six to spend time out of home while there is an unfinished task. While they believe that charity begins at home they also believe that it should not stay there. Once their home responsibilities have been taken care of they give their time freely as helpers in religious, charitable, educational and sporting organisations. They are not idle people and they do enjoy the luxury of relaxation after a busy day or a frantic period of activity. Nineteens do not have the same stay-at-home disposition. To get them to spend their leisure time at home will be as difficult as taking a Six away from home. However, selfishness is not a destructive quality in either and these differences can be reconciled to their mutual benefit. While Nineteens share the same cultural interests as the Six they look to much wider fields to participate and enjoy them. A Six who is left alone may lose touch with the wide world, but the influence of the Nineteen will help them broaden their horizons. The Nineteen, left to their own devices may unwittingly lose touch with family togetherness, but the persuasive Six will keep them from spending too much of their leisure time away from home and family.
The reciprocity observed in their spare time activities will continue in their financial affairs. Bank accounts, property, insurances and other investments can be confidently held in joint names. It is not in the nature of the Six to distrust or deceive, unless they are really negative in outlook. In a different relationship a Nineteen may be watchful but not deceptive. In a partnership with a Six, however, they would see that there is no need for supervision. The Six is a trustworthy money manager in all day-to-day transactions. They are generous and at the same time responsible spenders. Proneness to anxiety over their financial position will be relieved by the Nineteen’s optimism and faith in their competence as providers. They do not stress about crossing their bridges until they reach them and the Six will be influenced to follow the same line of thought. While the Six manages everyday expenses, larger financial matters will be initiated and managed by the Nineteen. Though the Six is not without financial acumen the bolder nature of the Nineteen will prevail in most instances.
The Six’s desire for togetherness in a warm personal relationship with their partners is based on their very comprehensive love nature. Non-sexual love in special circumstances is a unique attribute of the Six. Physical relations or sexual expression is only one aspect of their love. Imagination and romance play an important preliminary role in their sex lives. Their partners are soon made to realise that they are seldom instantly ready for sexual activity and need to be gently aroused. The Nineteen is not entirely without romance, but their sexual urges are on the surface and much stronger. Their love is inseparably associated with sexual experience. They fall in love with great intensity which does not fade as long as they receive loyalty from an intelligent and cooperative partner. They seek depth of love and character rather than the outer forms of beauty. While a Six partner usually possesses all these requirements in ample measure the Nineteen offers the Six the personal security and stability that is so important to the Six’s growth and wellbeing.
6TH AND 20TH BIRTHDAYS
Please refer to the chapter on the 2nd and 6th birthdays. The 20th day produces a Two personality as identical in character as those born on the 2nd day. The Zero does not introduce anything new, but tends to intensify the qualities of the 2 vibration. A more visible display of 2 characteristics may be the only difference between a plain Two and a Twenty and this does not change or influence their relationship with a Six partner.
6TH AND 21ST BIRTHDAYS
The 6th day produces a clear-cut Six personality with all the hallmarks of the 6 vibration, but the personality formed by the 21st day is a complex structure. Its formation is the same as that made by the 12th day insofar as the 1, 2 and 3 vibrations interact to form the integral personality. There may be slight changes in the intensity of the 1 and 2 vibrations, but these changes are so subtle that they will not be noticed in a relationship with a Six partner.
The influence of the 1 vibration may be slightly stronger in the Twelve personality than in the Twenty-One and conversely the influence of the 2 vibration may be slightly stronger in the Twenty-One than in the Twelve. The strength of the underlying 3 vibration remains the same. The reader should refer to the chapter on the 6th and 12th birthdays.
6TH AND 22ND BIRTHDAYS
The polarisation of primal energy into active and receptive forces is symbolised by odd and even numbers. The similarity in this birthday combination is the receptive polarity of both birthdays. The appeal of compatible vibrations will be responsible for Six and Twenty-Two people being attracted to each other and the subsequent creation of close relationships. However, these sympathetic forces operate on vastly dissimilar levels of expression or consciousness on account of significant difference in the vibratory structure of these birthdays. A single standard vibration commands the 6th day while a master vibration controls the 22nd. As the attributes of a single standard vibration can hardly match the power-plus forces of a master vibration such as a 22, a relationship between a Six and Twenty-Two cannot be expected to be held on an equal footing. A Six partner will not be subservient to a Twenty-Two but will willingly settle into an indispensable supporting role. The general nature of the Six individual is to love, foster, guide, teach, heal and serve their loved ones and thereafter extend their help into community needs. They achieve self-fulfilment and. self-development within this range of activity. They are mentally oriented people who live by ethical standards and rational thought, and as long as these are not violated they are prepared to abide by the leadership of a strong-willed partner or leader. The truth is that a Six needs security, companionship and positive feedback from a reliable partner before they can express their full potential. They flourish in an environment of peace, serenity and tranquillity, and devote their energies towards establishing these conditions. A relationship with a Twenty-Two will provide all the opportunities for them to do so.
Other specific Six qualities that will be keenly appreciated by a Twenty-Two partner are domesticity, parenthood, organisation, planning, rationality, stability, responsibility, loyalty, self-sacrifice, forbearance, sympathy, understanding and evenness of temperament. These qualities automatically ensure the absence of agitation, impulse, intolerance, interference and impatience which will certainly disrupt a relationship with a Twenty-Two. However, not all persons born on the 6th day display all the good 6 qualities. To do so they need to be positive in outlook. A good self-image, self-confidence, willpower and decision are among the chief attributes of positivity. These traits are peculiar to the 1 vibration and when this vibration is found in the birth month the Six is decidedly a positive individual, and an exceptionally desirable marriage partner. Various negative aspects of the 6 vibration such as indecision, possessiveness, jealousy, suspicion, moodiness, despair, escapism and absorption in self-generated fears may enter the personality of a negative Six. The Six who tends too far towards these negative features usually refuses to change and will not meet the expectations of a Twenty-Two. Those who have reached the borderline of negativity but have not crossed over to being clearly negative can certainly be helped from the positive feedback they get from a Twenty-Two partner.
Twenty-Twos are not without the need of the definite sense of purpose and clear sense of direction provided by the 1 vibration. Those with this vibration in their birth month are assuredly positive individuals with the world at their feet, so to speak, with limitless potential derived from the master vibration of their birthday. Twenty-Twos may fall into two other divisions in regard to positive or negative orientation. The first are those with physical or mental numbers in their birth months, and the second are those with emotional numbers in their birth months. The first division will be as talented and resourceful as the positive Twenty-Two once they overcome initial doubts as regards their talents and versatility. In the second group emotional problems inhibit much of their potential and popularity. Hypersensitivity, overreaction in their relationship with people, self-consciousness, stubbornness and restlessness are some of their main problems. They belie the average Twenty-Two’s reputation as emotionally stable individuals. The rational Six will find these Twenty-Twos difficult to live with. Sensible communication with them will become a real problem. The chapter on the 4th and 6th birthdays should be read in conjunction with this chapter, as many Twenty-Twos function as solid Fours (2 + 2 = 4) when they do not rise to the heights of the master vibration. This could be caused not only from the absence of the 1 vibration but also by a restricted background that has deprived them of opportunities to grow and use their full potential. The gap between a Six and a positive Twenty-Two is shortened considerably in a relationship between a Six and a Twenty-Two/Four.
The power of the average Twenty-Two derived from a birth force which combines manual dexterity, emotional and mental clarity and inspiration. Some younger Twenty-Twos may take time to come to grips with the powerful forces operating within them. Their original, progressive and often unconventional ideas and habits clash with the established customs of society. Whether in public life or in personal relationships it is not in the nature of a Twenty-Two to make too many personality adjustments in order to conform. As they usually find the ideas and efforts of others inferior to their own they proceed to act in their own inimitable style resenting interference or restrictions. They are usually difficult people to satisfy due to their combination of self-sufficiency and all-round talent. They are excellent providers who expect their partners to support and fit in with their lifestyle. Self-employment is best as it provides scope for their powerful imagination, enterprise and versatility. Their tendency will be to devote more time to their career or business affairs than to domestic responsibilities. A Six partner, who is by nature a conservative person, will be obliged to make many adjustments to keep up with the diversity of a Twenty-Two’s lifestyle. Fortunately the Six temperament favours adjustment provided they are not harmful to themselves or others. Though the Twenty-Two will hand out many surprises, the Six will find ways to cope. Their domesticated temperament will fit in finely with the Twenty-Two’s expectations. A clear-cut division in which the Six happens to be the breadwinner and the Twenty-Two the homemaker will be a lop-sided arrangement. No doubt Sixes are dedicated professionals or business people in areas that do not demand ruthless competition and sharp practices. They need to proceed at their own pace and as close as possible to their high moral code. Success is not looked for at the expense of others. It is likely that a Six breadwinner will suffer stress and anxiety in their efforts to meet the Twenty-Two’s high ambitions and far-reaching interests. The Twenty-Two in turn will suffer in a domestic role which is likely to frustrate their need for self-expression in the widest possible range of activity. While homemaking will be acknowledged as an honourable occupation it will not be one that will be accepted as being totally fulfilling. Their frustration could lead to dictatorial attitudes which could erode the individuality of family members. A Twenty-Two breadwinner and a Six homemaker or part-time worker will be a perfect arrangement. Whatever the situation may be, it will usually fall to the lot of the Six to shoulder the greater share of everyday domestic duties.
Social activities of both partners will be of a productive and beneficial nature rather than frivolous and inconsequential activity. Neither partner will carry their sociability to an extent that will cause discomfort, disagreement or loss of family solidarity. The home loving Six is capable of sustaining only so much excitement before they feel the need to withdraw to the ease and quietude of their homes and restore the balance that has been disturbed in their evenly paced lifestyle. The Twenty-Two will bear up to a more demanding social life but their busy working life will reduce social involvement to a level acceptable to the Six. Both partners can be classed as bridge builders in a figurative sense. The Six builds bridges between individuals and groups at community level. Endowed with abundant social graces they move effectively but unobtrusively in society and gather together people of all age groups in an atmosphere in which everyone feels free to mingle without reservations. Twenty-Twos build bridges not only in the figurative sense but also as construction engineers if they choose this profession. While Sixes are inclined to confine their activities within the more genteel and conventional elements of society Twenty-Twos extend their power and influence to wider fields. They do not recognise geographical, racial, religious and cultural barriers. Positive Twenty-Twos especially, function prominently in the vortex of social and public life. The complexity of life in general does not deter them.
Communication between the average Six and average Twenty-Two should be relaxed and informal on everyday matters. But the Six partner may have to make an effort to keep up with the Twenty-Two on the occasions they turn towards humanitarian interests on an international scale or to esoteric subjects of a deeply spiritual nature. The fact is that once one becomes involved in the depth and breadth of physical and metaphysical matters, which most Twenty-Twos do, there is a certain lack of communication with those who do not have similar or as profound an interest in them. While all Sixes remain pleasant and interesting conversationalists Twenty-Twos can develop into knowledgeable and memorable speakers. Communication problems arise if both partners suffer from strong negative tendencies. They may be inclined to project their insecurities, suspicions and fears upon each other and become entangled in these imaginary creations. Misunderstandings and senseless arguments followed by long periods of silence are usually the result.
Home based hobbies will take up a greater portion of the Six’s leisure time. Many normal domestic duties could be turned into pleasure giving hobbies. Their natural preference will be to have their partners associate with them in their hobbies and recreational activities. While the Six may reserve some free time for physical and mental relaxation the Twenty-Two may keep on working at one thing or another. They often strike out on their own and may have to be reminded that their company is needed by their partner. Having a keen eye for form, beauty, colour and melodious sound the Six will always be the most ardent admirer and supporter of the Twenty-Two’s many creations. Social service will attract both partners. While the Six will be involved in service in the literal sense the Twenty-Two will be engaged in social reform. Their capacity to combine idealistic and humanitarian values with physical and practical expression surpasses all other personality types. While a personality such as a Six will be deliberating on the pros and cons of a matter a Twenty-Two will go ahead and get things done.
Disagreements over money should not be a feature of this relationship as both are responsible money managers. Most of the Six’s expenditure will be on food, clothing, home comforts and in their interests in art, music, drama and literature. Personal expenses will seldom, if ever, exceed reasonable limits. The Twenty-Two will raise no objections to any of these avenues of expenditure. They may have a greater say in money matters relating to larger issues. Their own expenses may be higher due to their widespread interests. However, any excess they draw from the family budget will be compensated by one or more income earning or money saving hobbies they usually undertake.
Bonds between these partners are established by quiet pleasures rather than romantic excitement. Their decisions will be governed by complementary desires. Music by a fireside, candlelight dinners, interchange of ideas, all done in a state of restful alertness, contribute to make their relationship several degrees warmer than the average. The Six no doubt will be responsible for initiating many of these intimate episodes. Their principal contribution will be actions that lead to comradeship, peace and harmony, and the Twenty-Two’s foremost contributions will be aimed towards a balance between material comforts and spiritual growth. Their spiritual development will be along unorthodox lines rather than established church dogma. As the Six is assured of the Twenty-Two’s loyalty, their capacity to shoulder responsibility in a non-competitive domestic scene is virtually unlimited. They are the true guardians of family life. As their loyalty is unquestionable the Twenty-Two usually feels free to engage in their wide fields of activity. They are not as dependent on the company, the admiration and encouragement of a partner and may at times overlook the Six’s expectations in this regard. It is in fact their busy lifestyle and not their essential nature that is the cause of inattention. The truth is that their intuitiveness and psychic understanding gives them a keen awareness of how people feel and what it is they really want.
6TH AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS
The concentrated qualities of single digit birthdays and diversified qualities of multiple digit birthdays are certainly highlighted when these days are placed in a comparative position. Differences in polarity and planes of expression also become evident in many instances. The 6th and 23rd combination is a clear representation of this situation, and subject of these birthdays emerge with personality structures that identify them as obvious opposites. The natural drawing power of opposites will kindle a mutual attraction. Thereafter, if a relationship develops, its success will depend on the degree of adjustment each partner makes to use their dissimilarities as complementary factors rather than those that may be divisive. This can only be done with awareness, understanding anal collaboration by both parties. It may not be an easy task nor will it be one that is wholly reciprocal. In any instances it may be a one-sided effort undertaken by the Six partner whose aim in life is to establish a comfortable, peaceful and well regulated family life. While there are not too many variations in the different types of Six personalities, Twenty-Threes are found in much greater variety in regard to stability and willingness to make personal adjustments and self-improvement. Having several outlets for self-expression and interaction with their environment many Twenty-Threes become absorbed and fascinated with the business of living extensively and consequently lose sight of the need to slow down occasionally and take stock of themselves.
The vibration controlling the 6th day is a mental force with a receptive polarity. The Six individual’s receptive qualities are accordingly manifested through mental processes rather than emotional or physical channels. Other spheres of influence are depended upon for a visible flow of emotion and reasonable manual dexterity. Their natural ability to reason and rationalise is such that very little or no resistance will be offered towards establishing a truly cooperative partnership On the contrary, all Sixes devote their energies towards strengthening and enriching their relationship. They are not people who can live alone enjoying their own company. An alliance with a loving and trustworthy partner is essential to their growth, self-expression, fulfilment and happiness. In public life or private life they do not aspire to a position of authority, nor are they unimaginative followers. Their preference is to act as good team members working towards a well planned and organised lifestyle. Concentrated 6 qualities are not diluted to any appreciable degree by vibratory influences from the birth month, birth year or name, but could be strengthened in either positive or negative ways. Consequently, their actions and reactions are usually predictable. This cannot be said about the Twenty-Three. These individuals are neither easily identifiable nor predictable due to their complex personality structure. A Twenty-Three is basically a qualified Five personality. The 5 vibration operates at fundamental levels while the 2 and 3 function in the foreground of the personality. However, these vibrations have so any features in common that it is not possible to separate them and say which force could be dominant at any given time. Their sympathetic interaction creates a highly active and volatile personality that cannot be identified by a particular set of personality traits. Other vibrations serve only to enhance their complexity.
Taken as a whole, the versatility of the Twenty-Three is an active force formed by the overpowering influences of the 3 and 5 vibrations. In addition to certain individual features the receptive 2 plays a secondary role by reducing to some extent the speed of the 3 and 5. Self-expression on the emotional plane is made easy through the 2 and 5 and the mental plane through the 3. Though the physical plane is not represented the 2 and 5 provide a good measure of manual dexterity; the 2 for delicate hand or finger work and the 5 for heavier duties, risky jobs and emergencies. However, pragmatic and down-to-earth attitudes may be inadequate. Yet, the end result of the interplay of these vibrations is a versatile, adaptable, changeable, restless, impetuous and dynamic personality who is the very opposite of the placid, peaceful, loving, deliberate and unflappable Six. What they do have in common is extroversion, but here again the type of extroversion differs widely. The Six is gregarious and friendly in a mild-mannered, gentle, considerate and homely impersonal way whereas the Twenty-Three is ego-centred, happy-go-lucky, optimistic, enthusiastic, energetic, demonstrative and dramatic. Their enthusiasm is infectious and they thrive on popularity.
Both Sixes and Twenty-Threes fall broadly into two or three types in relation to positive or negative expression of their natural characteristics. To be positive the Six needs self-confidence which will enable them to make firm decisions and maintain a healthy self-image. The 6 vibration on its own does not provide this self-assertive and self-reliant quality. The 1 vibration provides it in full measure and those Sixes with this vibration in their birth month are able to make maximum use of their 6 qualities in positive ways. (The vibration of the birth month has the strongest influence on the personality formed by the birthday). When this vibration is present in other areas the Six may fluctuate between positive and negative tendencies. Those who stay closer to the negative side are usually those Sixes who have the 6 vibration repeated in their birth month or those who are overloaded with mental forces. These Sixes will not be successful in a partnership with a Twenty-Three. Negative qualities such as jealousy, possessiveness, suspicion, anxiety, depression and rigidity will destroy any chances of a compatible relationship.
The support of the 1 vibration is also needed by the Twenty-Three but for slightly different reasons. A possible disadvantage arising from the multiple forces within the 23rd day is that the personality is pulled in several directions thereby developing a tendency towards changeability and over-involvement in various activities. More often than not jobs are left incomplete when they switch to new interests that seem more attractive. Grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence. What the multi-talented Twenty-Three needs is a clear sense of purpose, a firm sense of direction and the willpower to resist temptation to change before they reach pre-determined goals. Though ego-centred and multi-talented many Twenty-Threes lose a sense of self-worth when they realise that they have been rolling stones. These problems are greatly reduced by the influence of the self-directing 1 vibration in the birth month. These are positive and productive Twenty-Threes who complement positive Sixes in every way. Restlessness becomes very difficult to control in those born in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 9th months. These individuals will find life with a Six partner restricting and boring. The Six, in turn, will find life with such partners extremely trying. Restlessness is reduced in Twenty-Threes born in the 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th months and some measure of success can be expected with Six partners.
All Six partners expect to form a close and cooperative relationship in which most decisions and subsequent action will be carried out as a twosome. Twenty-Threes, however, do not have the same collaborative instincts nor do they possess the desire for power over others as imperious leaders. Their need for personal freedom is too strong to be given up for the state of togetherness desired by the Six or for the sole responsibility of leadership. They would expect to be given the same freedom they grant others. While the Six will certainly appreciate the freedom they will have in domestic matters they may find it difficult to accept the freedom of movement taken by the Twenty-Three. Reconciliation between the Six’s house bound temperament and the Twenty-Three’s desire for movement, diversity and excitement, if not seriously undertaken, will lead to more unhappiness on the part of the Six. This personality is able to adjust to many conditions but not to one of isolation and loneliness.
These temperamental differences are inevitably carried into their social life. Both partners are in fact socially oriented but in totally different ways. Sixes are natural hosts and hostesses and considerate guests who take pains to contribute towards the comfort and entertainment of others. Twenty-Threes go all out to extract as much personal pleasure they can obtain from a social scene. Their dynamic personality is such that they give others a good deal of pleasure and entertainment in the process, even though their principal object is personal enjoyment. They are easily bored and could quickly depart from a scene that has ceased to provide excitement. Sixes place strict limits on the time and energy spent in social engagements while the pleasure involved Twenty-Three could lose all sense of time and place. Arguments usually arise when the Six decides to call it a day and return home or places time limits on parties given by them. The main problem is that the composed and conservative Six enjoys quiet pleasures such as reading, music and conversation by a fireside or home entertainment of a few select family members or close friends while Twenty-Threes revel in the intensity and stimulation of a varied and often unconventional social life. Too much night life will be rejected by the average Six but these will be the occasions the Twenty-Threes perform at their best.
A similar pattern of self-expression is followed in oral communication and body language. Good speech vibrations are enjoyed by both, but once again, there are unmistakable differences in their methods of speech. The Six is deliberate, rational, unemotional, soft spoken and for the most part objective in expressing their views. They are patient listeners who take an interest in people rather than elaborate on their own affairs. Body language is reserved and often self-effacing. Twenty-Threes are exceptionally alert, captivating, flexible and generally subjective talkers. Their rich voices, fluency of speech and demonstrative body language give out a certain magnetism that holds the attention of an audience. They may show some disregard for accuracy due to a fondness for embroidering and embellishing their speech. On such occasions they are certain to be challenged by the clear-minded and straightforward Sixes who will argue till the cows come home, so to speak, whenever the Twenty-Three indulges in evasive, ambiguous, irrelevant or exaggerated speech.
The Six’s desire for a relaxed and peaceful way of life free from tensions or excessive expenditure of nervous and physical energy will be reflected in their choice of hobbies. Once again the home will be their main centre of interest. Their mental orientation gives them a keen appreciation of all forms of art and literature. Their creative talents are usually seen in the decorative and the culinary arts. They may participate in sporting activities that do not involve too much body contact. Victories and losses are handled in their usual level-headed and unruffled manner. They make good umpires, referees and administrators. Twenty-Threes are earnest contestants who play to win and are visibly elated in victory and disappointed in defeat. As opposed to the Six’s quest for ease and relaxation they constantly seek out sources for self-expression and stimulation. Their acting talents are exceptionally good due to fluency of speech and outlets for emotion and their natural ability to hold the centre of attention. It will be quite futile to list the various interests these versatile people will be attracted to but it will be correct to say that their interests will be constantly changing.
The biggest stumbling block in this relationship will be their opposite attitudes towards money. The Six handles money cautiously and responsibly. As optimism is not a strong personality trait their actions are influenced by a natural anxiety for financial security. Though generous in expenditure on food, education and other home comforts they live strictly within their means. Unnecessary indebtedness or gambling in any form is frowned upon and personal expenditure will be subordinated to the needs of the family. Twenty-Threes, however, are free from anxiety over financial matters. With an enthusiastic outlook and a need to experience life in all its fullness they spend freely and often unwisely. Personal expenditure is usually high and many Twenty-Threes may live beyond their means. Borrowing or gambling may be resorted to in order to overcome money problems and this may give a Six partner many sleepless lights. Many arguments can be expected when bills remain unpaid. If this partnership is to be saved all financial matters should be placed in the safe hands of the Six.
The Six’s loyalty is seldom open to question but the Twenty-Three’s actions may on occasions worry the Six. The love life of all Sixes is centred on their partners and dependants. It is highly unlikely that a Six will be tempted into engaging in a clandestine affair. Their family oriented outlook on life saves them from situations that could endanger their loyalty. They are possessive and protective of loved ones and expect frequent expressions of love and approval in return. A Twenty-Three may not always respond to these expectations. In the first instance they will resent possessive and protective attitudes which could also include jealousy in negative Sixes. Their instinctive need for freedom not only rebels against any form of control but prevents their forgiving themselves unconditionally as the Six would expect. Being naturally curious and adventurous people with a much wider range of activity and interaction with people they are open and susceptible to many temptations. Their fidelity is constantly put to the test due to a natural desire to experience and experiment. They are highly romantic and sensuous people who feel no inhibition in the company of the opposite sex. They do not need much stimulation before they are ready for lovemaking but a Six’s mental state could often be far removed from sexual desires or responses. Consequently, a Twenty-Three partner may have to wait till these states synchronise. An application of their considerable charm and amorous approach will certainly hasten matters.
6TH AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS
The first step taken in the examination of a birthday combination which includes one or two multiple digits is the reduction of the multiple digits to a single number. When this is done in the present combination we find that both birthdays produce Six personalities. This does not, however, obscure certain distinctions between the uniform nature of the plain Six born on the 6th day and the multiform nature of the qualified Six born on the 24th day. There is, nevertheless, a single magnetic force which ensures a state of harmony between these numbers or vibrations in the form of their common receptive polarity. Subjects of these birthdays may not be susceptible to the magic of instant attraction experienced by individuals with opposite polarities. But awareness of their affinities and similar aims will develop with familiarity, and once they enter upon a relationship there is hardly any personality trait or idiosyncrasy that could hinder an exceptionally united partnership.
The nature of the 2 and 4 vibrations which qualify the Twenty-Four/Six is such that 6 qualities are by no means changed to an extent that the Twenty-Four is unidentifiable as a relative Six personality. If at all, they expand 6 qualities and spread them over three planes of expression without transforming the basic Six character. (This is not usually the case with the 15th day which also produces a qualified Six, as the nature of the 1 and 5 is such that it takes considerable familiarity with a Fifteen/Six before characteristics of a basic Six personality are recognised.) The strength of the plain Six personality is concentrated on the mental plane and vibrations from the emotional and physical planes are needed from other areas of influence for a rounding off of the personality. The Twenty-Four, however, is already a well-rounded personality in the sense that they have access to the physical plane through the 4 vibration, the emotional plane through the 2 and the mental plane through the 6. The receptive polarity and correlative nature of all three vibrations forming the Twenty-Four prevents them from being torn between conflicting forces from within and thus losing a sense of direction and sense of purpose. They are well integrated and stable individuals who know what they want and set about achieving their goals without resorting to any extremes of behaviour.
Among the many characteristics, aspirations and expectations that will be shared by both Sixes and Twenty-Fours will be their conscious efforts to enrich their personal relations, their love of home and family and their duty towards the community. Neither partner believes it is imperative to be in sole control. Responsibilities and decisions will be shared in such a way that things will fall into place in the domestic scene through instinctive cooperation and good organisation. With attributes ideally suited for parenthood and guardianship such as duty, responsibility, loyalty, service, self-sacrifice, understanding, fair-mindedness and guidance the dearest wish of both partners will be the establishment of a close family unit based on love, peace, tranquillity and togetherness. Their domestic scene will automatically be remarkable for the absence of friction, tension, speed, noise and frequent changes and sudden bursts of emotion. Both partners relate to young and old, wise and unwise, informed and uninformed and to those in good health or ill health with the same degree of patience and understanding. They radiate an atmosphere of motherly or fatherly warmth and strength, and get things done by example as well as by reasonableness and diplomacy. There is nothing artificial about the personality of either. If they do put on a facade of some sort it will not be in their relationship with loved ones and friends but more as a protective barrier against self-seeking and aggressive types of people.
Not all Sixes and Twenty-Fours are born with the capacity to live up to the full potential of their birth force. Many of them need to work upon themselves to gain self-confidence, self-assertiveness and a good self-image. These assets are not abundant in receptive forces. They are usually found in active vibrations, especially in the self-directing force of the 1 vibration. The receptive and often sensitive nature of Sixes and Twenty-Fours exposes them to problems not experienced by the individualistic and self-reliant nature of people governed by active vibrations. Many of their problems are, however, overcome when the 1 vibration is present in their birth month. It increases their capacity for decisive action and for facing aggressive behaviour in others, rivalry, competition, tensions and turmoil when such conditions are unavoidable. When both partners have this vibration success can be expected in their personal relationship, in public life and in material prosperity. When it is lacking in both partners material progress will be slowed down by the absence of initiative, ambition, decision and willpower. However, its presence in one partner is sufficient to achieve success as this partner will automatically become the motivating force.
Both partners would be willing and able to make a career of homemaking. They are also capable of taking up a dual role of breadwinner and part-time homemaker. Their choice of vocations will naturally follow the basic orientation of their personalities. The main difference between them in regard to work opportunities is the absence of manual dexterity in the mentally oriented Six and the exceptionally good manual and practical talents of the Twenty-Four. White collar or sedentary work usually attracts the Six while a much wider field of opportunity is available to the Twenty-Four. The great advantage held by both over many other working couples is their willingness to work out compromises and bear an equal share of responsibility. Whether or not both enter the work force on a regular basis the one factor that will remain constant is their common desire for domestic harmony and stability.
Both partners are pleasantly extroverted and socially oriented. An equal share of social popularity will be enjoyed by virtue of their goodwill approach to all people and willingness to accept social conditions as they find them and not attempt changes to suit their own tastes. Both have too much tact and diplomacy to make personal enemies. Prompted by motives of friendship rather than expediency they usually evoke similar responses from others. They are among the most desirable people to have as neighbours in the sense that they respect privacy but are readily available in times of need. While relating to all age groups and social levels, the one exception to their tolerance will be the coarse, unrefined and unethical elements of society. As hosts and hostesses they set everyone at ease with their informal, good-natured and hospitable manner. As their social needs are almost identical participation in social engagements will always be as a cheerful twosome. An exception to this ideal situation will be a partnership in which the Six is of an excessively negative disposition. These Sixes are usually the opposite of their positive counterparts. Suspicion, jealousy, selfishness, interference, possessiveness, fixed opinions, ulterior motives, domestic tyranny and overreaction to domestic problems all combine to inhibit the social graces natural to the average Six. Negative Twenty-Fours may exhibit some of these traits as well but not with the same intensity.
Lines of communication between these partners will remain open as both are endowed with good oral expression. Not only are they able to talk to each other about their interests but any differences can also be discussed coolly and rationally. This happy condition, however, cannot be expected with a negative Six partner who may fall into frequent depressive needs and repel any approaches by the Twenty-Four. The reverse situation could also occur but, once again, it will not happen as frequently or acutely as with a negative Six. The average Six, whether plain or qualified, is a good conversationalist who knows how to listen making people feel free to tell them their problems. In general conversation their tactful nature is such that they guide topics and opinions with emotional objectivity taking care to avoid subjects that may cause embarrassment, irritation, anger or any form of unpleasantness. They can also be quite argumentative as a matter of principle when facts are not presented to them properly. Such arguments may not arise between Sixes and Twenty-Fours but others who are careless in the presentation of their facts will encounter the considerable reasoning powers of these personalities. They are not given to expressing their pleasure or displeasure with much vehemence. Body language may be undemonstrative, yet palpable personal warmth creates an aura of goodwill and approachability. Their sense of humour is usually victimless. If at all, they may use their own absurdities and experiences as a source of humour and anecdotal entertainment.
Their choice of hobbies will be influenced by their home oriented temperaments and by their sense of duty to the community. Once again, following their deep regard for the value of shared experiences, most activities will be undertaken as a twosome or a family unit. The kitchen will be a busy spot in this household as both partners are fond of cooking. Visitors will always enjoy a great spread of wholesome food and drink. While the Six will be attracted to music, drama and literature, a workshop or work room may be the special preserve of the Twenty-Four. With mechanical and manual aptitudes Twenty-Fours are never as happy as when they are using their practical mind taking something apart, putting things together or attending to something that needs repair. Outside help is very seldom needed in a Twenty-Four household. They are also collectors of various knick-knacks which they feel may be useful at some time or other. Local schools, churches, charitable organisations and sporting clubs are seldom without the worthwhile contribution of these citizens. Although their time and energy will be given generously they are not likely to undertake any recreational or voluntary work that may disadvantage family stability.
Squabbles over money matters, which so often cause unhappiness and insecurity in relationships, should not arise between these partners. Both are highly responsible money managers who use a ‘play safe’ policy in all their transactions. Gambling in any form is quite foreign to their temperament. They spend without stinting on all their needs, however, neither is a victim of fashion or high pressure sales tactics and will therefore not be found spending on items of little or no utilitarian value. With modest tastes and an eye for value they do not hesitate to hunt around for the best prices. Credit purchases will be kept at a minimum and bills will always be paid on time. Joint accounts can be held with trust as they are usually of one mind when it comes to expenditure on larger items, and neither partner is likely to have any secret personal expenses. Day-to-day expenses can be handled by either, contributing to the good organisation of domestic affairs.
Both Sixes and Twenty-Fours take responsibility for their inadequacies and do not blame each other in times of stress. As they are not overly conscious or protective of their egos they do not always see things is relation to their own likes and dislikes. They may settle down to an amicable division of responsibility but, with a few obvious exceptions, neither partner would expect the other to do anything he or she would not do themselves. Sensitive to right and wrong and with an inner craving for balance in their lives and the restoration of balance disturbed, they are prompted to correct problems before they lead to complications or confrontation. These are special qualities contributed by both towards enjoying family life in all its fullness. Sexual needs of the Twenty-Four may be more urgent than those of the Six. The Six’s physical responses do not often match their intellectual awareness of sexual pleasures. There is a greater degree of idealism and romance mixed up with their physical desires. Their expressions of affection may be indications of caring and loving and not always indications of sexual intent. Physical responses depend on romantic stimulation.
6TH AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS
There is a natural affinity between the vibrations of even numbered birthdays created by their receptive polarity. Subjects of these birthdays are attracted to each other and remain in close association on the basis of similarities of temperament and common aims in life. They are seldom faced with a period of discovery and subsequent personality modification in order to preserve their relationships. Life together is usually harmonious, but not necessarily exciting and adventuresome, because the spirit of daring and enterprise is not strong in receptive forces. On the other hand an odd and even numbered birthday combination will be governed by opposite polarities and enlivened by the attraction of dissimilar characteristics. Once the honeymoon is over, however, they experience a period of awakening to their different temperaments and aims and are faced with a longer process of personality adjustments. Subjects of the 6th and 25th birthdays fall into the latter category. Once they set about revising many of their expectations their partnership will be challenging, provocative, entertaining and unpredictable, but mutually beneficial.
To say the least, this is an extraordinary combination in the sense that the tastes, preferences and predilections of the Six and Twenty-Five personalities differ widely but not necessarily in ways that exclude the possibility of a complementary and compatible relationship. Underlying many exterior dissimilarities are several personality traits that could interact in cooperative ways to ensure success in a long term relationship. Some of their motives and methods may differ but the end result of harmony can be achieved. What outwardly distinguishes them is the identifiable and predictable temperament of the Six and the enigmatic and variable nature of the Twenty-Five. Consequently the Six’s approachability offers fewer uncertainties than that of the Twenty-Five. The comparatively uncomplicated nature of the Six is due, not only to the concentrated force of a single vibration, but also to the fact that the 6 vibration represents balance in all things as well as the prompt restoration of balance disturbed. A Six personality who will always steer a middle course will not be found resorting to any intense, immoderate or radical form of behaviour. In contrast, the personality of the Twenty-Five is a much more complex structure caused by the interaction of three vibratory forces. Though basically a qualified Seven personality the Twenty-Five cannot be equated with a plain Seven born on the 7th day due to the influence of the emotionally oriented and extroverted 2 and 5 vibrations. Reserved 7 characteristics however constantly intrude upon their colourful outer personality. The 2, 5 and 7 vibrations do not always blend harmoniously, resulting in changes within the Twenty-Five in their interaction with others. A Twenty-Five acquaintance, friend, work mate or partner could at certain times be charming and talkative and at other times discreetly avoid contact or communication. The truth is that they are people who alternate between enjoyment of the company of others and the pleasure of their own company. A Six partner, or anyone else for that matter, will discover hidden sides to their nature that were not revealed on first acquaintance. When motivated by the extroverted qualities of the 2 and 5 vibrations they could be talkative and entertaining individuals, but when the reserved and aloof 7 aspect takes over they could create much disillusionment in the minds of those who do not know them fairly well. The Six, in comparison, is a companionable individual who suffers in a condition of isolation or loneliness. One of the first adjustments Six partners will need to make with a Twenty-Five is to allow them periods of privacy or periods of silence. Attempts to possess them will only jeopardise the harmony of their relationship. The Twenty-Five, in turn, will need to adjust to the Six’s need for togetherness and so do most things along with their partners. While a Six could easily get locked into a behaviour pattern the Twenty-Five will remain flexible, adaptable and adventuresome. A partial surrender by both is needed to bridge these differences.
When both Sixes and Twenty-Fives are positive individuals they hold the best chances of establishing a successful relationship. These are individuals who possess the confidence, self-esteem, initiative and willpower for self-improvement and self-direction. Some are born with these qualities and some acquire them by effort. Others may find themselves in the doldrums, psychologically speaking, and do little to strengthen themselves and their relationships with others. Their greatest need is the cultivation of self-love and self-respect so that they can minimise negative thoughts and advance their ambitions. Their opinion of themselves has a considerable bearing on the way they view the world and the way the world sees them. Sixes and Twenty-Fives who are naturally endowed with positivity are usually those who possess the self-directing and purposeful 1 vibration in their birth months, or in some other significant sphere of influence.
Neither partner will have the desire to drive the other into a position of inferior status. In terms of authority, responsibility and decision making their relationship is likely to remain on a fairly equal footing especially after they discover that their talents are interdependent. The Six is a domesticated and home based individual who would prefer a line of work that will not interfere with domestic responsibilities. They are not overly ambitious or competitive, and if necessary, they could take up home making as a full-time career. Twenty-Fives are not as domesticated and a full-time career in public life is more in keeping with their disposition. They need to be involved in a career or organisation that offers opportunities for regular expression of their diverse talents and desire for movement and change. There is, however, one aspect of their personality which revels in the melodrama of public life and another aspect which seeks calmer waters, particularly in natural surroundings with a limited interaction with people. They will always need a stable and tranquil home life as a refuge from the tensions of public life. A Six partner, who usually puts the needs of loved ones before their own, can be depended upon to contribute actively to these conditions. The Six who enters public life concentrates on one object or ambition at a time but a Twenty-Five may have more than one ‘iron in the fire’. While positive Twenty-Fives will handle their several interests successfully, those who are less positive may have difficulty coordinating their affairs. The Six who has a passion for simplicity and orderliness will certainly clash with a Twenty-Five with this inability to effectively organise their affairs.
Neither partner is likely to be drawn into a social scene to the discomfort of the other, or be required to invent strategies to avoid social engagements. It is not in the nature of a Six to indulge in any pursuit that may interfere with domestic harmony. The Twenty-Five may feel a greater need to go out and free themselves of restlessness that may develop when too much time is spent at home, but there is an inner safety valve that will prevent them from engaging in prolonged social activity. The Six may feel comfortable confined to a regular social setting and customary entertainment but the Twenty-Five needs a periodic change of scene which provides some physical activity, travel and new experiences. They are not as dependent on communication with people, as is the Six. Sixes keep up their contacts and put up with a fair amount of inconvenience to do so, but a Twenty-Five could withdraw within themselves or leave a social scene that displeases them or no longer provides stimulation. The social life of these partners will not intrude upon a mutual desire for quiet domestic interludes and family outings.
The different methods of communication employed by these partners are based on the open-minded nature of the Six and the selective and sometimes secretive nature of the Twenty-Five. The Six’s speech is controlled by deliberate and rational thought processes. The Twenty-Five’s speech will be emotionally toned but, for the most part, kept under control by an inner strength which they draw upon when emotion interferes with their interests. The absence of emotional demonstration in the Six’s body language and the Twenty-Five’s occasional outbursts of emotion are also significant differences.
Communication between them should not be difficult once the Six appreciates the Twenty-Five’s need for periods of silence and privacy and the Twenty-Five keeps away from the Six on the occasion they fall into moods of anxiety and melancholy. They are both open to discussion and compromise but differences may arise in their method of presentation of facts. The Six’s arguments will be candid and straightforward but the Twenty-Five could be complicating and perplexing. The secretive and private side of their nature often refrains from revealing all their facts. However, both partners are good listeners and neither can be said to be too defensively entrenched in their own set of ideas. Badly negative Six personalities are an exception.
Both partners will use their leisure time to enhance their quality of life rather than waste it in frivolous activity. Family and community minded Six people establish their centres of activity within the home and in voluntary service in community projects. Home maintenance and home beautification will be transformed into a fulfilling hobby in addition to all forms of artistic and literary pleasures. The culinary arts, in particular, attract all Sixes. Most of them are fond of good food and entertainment. Not only do they put on a good spread of food and drink whenever they entertain but they also derive tremendous pleasure from eating out in choice restaurants that provide quality in food and drink as well as fine decor and elegant service. Local schools, churches, charitable and sporting organisations are seldom without the unselfish support of obliging Six helpers. With their minds turned inward as well as outward most Twenty-Fives live even more abundantly. They proceed deeper into physical and non-physical dimensions with a sharp perception of what goes on around them and a natural sense of curiosity. It is difficult to list the wide range of hobbies a Twenty-Five could take up. They could range from competitive and non-competitive sport to gardening and other active hobbies associated with nature. An active spiritual element could draw many Twenty-Fives into the realms of metaphysics and associated studies. They will certainly influence their Six partners to broaden their horizons and change any fixed habits. However, by allowing each other individual interests Sixes and Twenty-Fives enrich their relationship, as access to each other’s hobbies will always be open, and neither is likely to become absorbed in a selfish hobby that could shut out the other.
The Six’s money management methods could be influenced by caution and anxiety rather than by optimism or emotion-backed demands. A comfortable financial position is an important factor in the well regulated and stable lifestyle essential to their wellbeing. Income, expenditure and savings are handled with watchfulness and accountability. No risky ventures will be undertaken nor will they resort to gambling in a serious way as a sport or as a means of acquiring sudden wealth. They spend generously but also responsibly on food, clothing, education, entertainment and home comforts yet are not likely to splash out impulsively. Twenty-Fives do not entertain anxiety over their financial position and could resort to occasional spending sprees and spread their money over a wider range of purchases and investments. Their personal expenses may be more than that of the Six but an innate sense of proportion prevents them from irresponsible and selfish use of money.
Early in their relationship the Six is likely to face the Twenty-Five’s emotional swings as the Twenty-Five may face the Six’s periods of despondency. However, both partners have the capacity to cope with these idiosyncrasies and give each other positive support. They will learn that acceptance of help will depend on their emotional state and will withhold their advice or avoid confrontation when the other is affected by separating emotions of disorientation. Approaches will be made only during times of unifying emotions of love and stability. Their desire for peace is mutual and neither is fenced in by egoistic demands and needs. Their differences are only in temperament and not in ideals.
6TH AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS
A significant factor in this birthday combination will be the interaction of receptive vibrations symbolised by even numbers. The same degree of magnetism that acts upon an odd and even combination, or vibrations of opposite polarities, cannot be expected. Spontaneous attraction between subjects of these birthdays, or ‘love at first sight’, followed by a testing period of discovery and necessary adjustments when the initial magic has faded is an unlikely prospect. These are experiences peculiar to those with opposite personality types. Subjects of the 6th and 26th birthdays become attracted to each other through mutual appreciation of their personality traits, aptitudes and common aims gained over a period of time and not as a result of spontaneity or sudden infatuation. This slower process, guided by observation and confirmation of expectations, prevents many misgivings and uncertainties faced by couples who may have plunged into a relationship before they have given themselves time to understand each other.
Six and Twenty-Six personalities are in fact not distinguished as much by their many similarities as they are by the uniform personality structure of the Six and the multiform structure of the Twenty-Six. The Six is born with a personality structure comprised of a single major facet in the form of collective 6 qualities. Though other numbers or vibrations from the birth month, birth year and name provide secondary facets the essential Six individual is never disguised. The most important influencing force is that contributed by the self-directing 1 vibration. Its presence in a powerful sphere of influence ensures positivity while its absence or presence in less influential areas creates various conditions of negativity. Six people with this vibration in their birth month are positive individuals in the sense that they maintain a healthy self-image and use their 6 qualities with self-confidence, willpower and independence. They are exceptionally desirable and lovable people, not only as marriage partners but also as friends, neighbours, co-workers and good citizens. They exemplify the best 6 qualities such as companionship, parenthood, guardianship, domesticity, teaching, guidance, good fellowship, responsibility, service, loyalty and above all passion for a well planned and well balanced lifestyle. Their thought processes are deliberate and analytical, as all Sixes, regardless of other influences live, for the most part, on the mental plane. The fine rhythm of life which they maintain is never allowed to be upset by speed, impulse or any form of erratic behaviour on their part or by those under their care. Attempts to hurry them into decisions or unplanned activity will be fruitless. They either retreat within themselves or counter such attempts with logical arguments. Sixes who do not possess the 1 vibration in the birth month (which is the strongest point of influence), may fluctuate between positive and negative attitudes. Those with a stronger tendency towards negativity are not as independent and self-sufficient, and consequently nurture a diminished self-image which inhibits much of their potential. Unless they make a deliberate effort to develop more self-confidence proneness to undersell themselves will intrude adversely upon their chances of success in public life and their position as co-partners in private life.
The Twenty-Six is a qualified Eight personality (2 + 6 = 8). The 2 and 6 vibrations operate in the foreground of the personality while 8 qualities are clearly evident in the background. The 6 aspect of the Twenty-Six becomes noteworthy in a relationship with a Six partner. Not only are all 6 qualities contained in the Twenty -Six but the 2 and 8 vibrations tend to expand and strengthen them rather than conflict with and frustrate them. The 2 introduces an outlet into the emotional plane not available to the Six unless a minor outlet is provided by the birth month or birth year. Other 2 qualities which correspond are diplomacy, patience, peace, sympathy, service, unselfishness, self-sacrifice, adjustment, evenness of temperament, a desire to heal and a fear of loneliness. The underlying 8 characteristics exercise a twofold influence upon the integral personality. On the one hand they enhance the methodical and organisational abilities of the 2 and 6 and on the other hand provide the incentives to fulfil ambitions to a greater extent than would be done by the combined influence of the 2 and 6 forces. Though the 8 vibration is a receptive force operating on the emotional plane it is not as passive as other receptive forces. On the contrary, it contains many self-assertive, authoritative and aggressive qualities relative to active vibrations which could be used in constructive or destructive ways. However, the Twenty-Six is no different to their Six partners in regard to the need of the 1 vibration to provide a positive approach to life. Without it the Twenty-Six will lack the willpower and self-assurance to go ahead in public life to the extent of which they are capable or to take equal rank with a positive partner in an intimate relationship. Certain aggressive tendencies may develop out of frustration with themselves which may unfavourably affect their relationship with a peaceful Six. While a positive Six and a positive Twenty-Six will form an outstanding partnership the same degree of success cannot be expected between a negative pair deprived of the driving force of the 1 vibration. Their problem will be the inability to mobilise their talents towards greater efforts. However, it would be sufficient if one partner has this motivating force as this partner will take over responsibility for the major decisions and changes that need to be made from time to time.
There is no fear that the domestic scene will ever be neglected by these partners. Devotion to a career will not be at the expense of loved ones. If both partners enter the workforce the duties of a second shift in the home will be shared equally. A wide range of opportunity is open to both in the professions but openings in business would best be focused on the hospitality industry, household products, clothing, health and beauty products, books, music and decorative goods. If the need arises for one partner to undertake homemaking as a full-time career the Six will be the more suitable choice. The concentration of 6 qualities enables them to settle down willingly and devotedly into a domestic scene. Restlessness and discontent are not problems associated with a Six householder. A Twenty-Six is not incapable of the same willingness and devotion but, driven by the 8 aspect of their personality, an element of restlessness may develop when they are deprived of the opportunity of taking up challenges in public life.
The same cooperative spirit used in the domestic scene will be carried into social activities. Both partners are quietly extroverted people whose sociability is spontaneous rather than artificial or used as a means to an end. They are not moved by a yearning for excitement, melodrama and constant entertainment. With an air of openness and affability they exude good fellowship, relaxation and laughter, and are drawn to people of similar temperament. Tense, noisy, unconventional and volatile conditions are avoided at all costs. Both, in varying degrees, could be dependent on the opinions of others for maintaining a good self-image instead of looking to their own valuation of their personal worth. They may often remain unconscious of the fact that they radiate warmth and friendliness by instinctively doing kindly things (a habit which automatically draws similar responses from others). They are confident and competent hosts and hostesses, but as guests they mingle unobtrusively avoiding the centre of attention. Unsocial conduct in any form will not spoil their social engagements nor will one of the pair want to overstay their welcome as the desire to return home overtakes both at about the same time. The only occasions these individuals develop genuine restlessness will be those in which they are obliged by forces beyond their control to extend their visiting time. Both Sixes and Twenty-Sixes uplift the quality of their social life when they evaluate themselves accurately and take pride in being themselves and acknowledging their social graces.
The quality of their social life and personal relations is enriched by their communicative skills. Both get by with a wise choice of words spoken in a slow and deliberate fashion. The Twenty-Six can use their outlets into the emotional plane to utilise tactile communication to increase their effectiveness. Ranging from a gentle touch to a spontaneous hug they could relieve tensions, give reassurance, break down resistance and generally receive cooperation. Both partners are at their best as conversationalists when discussing pleasant topics but could be contentious and argumentative the moment controversial and unrealistic issues that do not conform with their clear thought processes are introduced by a third party unaware of their very rational and conservative mentality. Communication between the partners themselves will be honest and straightforward and enlivened by a natural flair to see humour in the little things of life. While they may be good listeners and conversationalists they are not incessant talkers, and lulls in communication need not be interpreted as tension or distance between them.
Their relationship as a close twosome should continue during their leisure hours and holiday activities. It is not in the nature of either to strike out alone on some private hobby. They cannot be said to be travellers, adventurers or revellers. Their spare time will be spent in profitable and meaningful tasks in the home and in local community activity. They do not usually take to highly active or vigorous activities. Physical comfort and relaxation of their minds have a greater appeal during their leisure time. The 6 aspect in both develops a fondness for the culinary arts and health matters in relation to food and drink. Consequently, the preparation and consumption of wholesome meals will receive special attention.
The need for a stable financial position felt by both, while not dominating their thoughts, will remain another important motive for a planned and regulated lifestyle. Freedom from debt is a necessity before either can enjoy peace of mind. Distrust and disputes over money matters which divides many a relationship should not arise here. Money will not slip away unnoticed from the hands of these good money managers. Loved ones will not be deprived of their needs through self-indulgent spending by either. Family needs will always be given priority over personal needs.
The success of this partnership is based on the quality of their thoughtfulness. Neither the Six nor the Twenty-Six is a type that will persuade the other to follow a course of action opposed to their temperament or detrimental to their wellbeing. Both have it in them to go further than their own comfort to work towards the happiness of loved ones. All they ask for in return is companionship, togetherness, loyalty and love, as they resent working through their troubles alone; nor can they enjoy the good things of life unless they are shared. Their strength emerges when they face the world alongside a loving and devoted partner. Romance will always be kept alive by their instinctive efforts to enrich their relationship and family life. These idyllic conditions are created when both partners, as a rule, work upon themselves to overcome any negative traits peculiar to their temperaments. When positive features exceed those that are negative they usually do so, but in the reverse position, both may stubbornly refuse to help themselves and consequently exhibit such traits as moodiness, depression, self -deprecation, jealousy, fear and possessiveness.
6TH AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS
A birthday combination comprising odd numbers or even numbers only will not have the same degree of variation and diversity of attributes as one with a mixture of odd and even numbers. Nor will it be subject to the natural attractions of opposites. The 6th and 27th combination is, however, a good mixture of odd and even numbers symbolising active and receptive vibrations. There are significant differences in the personal character of people born on these days due to the polarity of their overall vibratory formation. In addition, the personality of the Six individual is formed by homogenous forces of a single vibration while that of the Twenty-Seven is made up of the collective forces of three vibrations (2 + 7 = 9). The uniform nature of the Six and the multiform nature of the Twenty-Seven create further distinctions. A Six/Twenty-Seven partnership will be a pleasant adventure undertaken by a couple with substantially different yet complementary personality traits.
The mutual attraction of opposite polarities creates a tendency for the qualities predominating in each to draw together and seek out those that are lacking or deficient in each. The attraction they experience is an indication of beneficial reinforcement they receive from each other. Such reciprocity may not always take place in mixed combinations but it should be a natural condition between Six and Twenty-Seven partners as the 6, 2, 7 and 9 vibrations which make up this combination are basically compatible forces. Differences that once attracted them will not cause them to move apart after the honeymoon period is over, as may happen with some couples, but will instead secure their relationship through a process of mutual cooperation.
The self-reliant and self-confident forces which enable us to exploit our potentiality are found principally in the ego-conscious 1 vibration. People with this vibration in their birthdays are certain to make maximum use of the attributes of their birth force. Others, such as the Six and Twenty-Seven depend on secondary areas of influence to provide this vibration. Outside the birthday its influence is most effective from the birth month. Other points of influence may not ensure consistent positive attitudes and many possibilities may remain in latency. In addition, the absence of positive attitudes inevitably invites attitudes that are negative. Positive Sixes and Twenty-Sevens, born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months, will constantly strive to reach their full potential and in the process enjoy a successful and fulfilling relationship. Those who do not possess the willpower, initiative and incentive of the 1 vibration to the same degree may display a poor self-image, under-sell themselves and generally live below their potential. They may have their wants and ambitions but not the motivating power to satisfy them as much as their positive counterparts. The efforts of positive partners will be directed towards consolidating their relationship as they are less likely to suffer an identity crisis. The efforts of less positive partners are divided between strengthening their own personality as much as their relationship. A partnership in which one or both tend towards negative attitudes may take more time, effort and understanding before success can be achieved.
Personality traits peculiar to active and receptive vibrations vary according to their plane of expression. The Six personality, for instance, is the subject of a receptive force operating on the mental plane. As their receptive features are expressed through mental processes they are not known for demonstrations of emotion or manual dexterity which are attributes of the emotional and physical planes. Their method of thinking is analytical and rational, devoid of speed, impulse, and partiality or prejudice. Nature at the 6th stage of evolution holds a position of balance between material and spiritual aspects of life. The result of this balancing force is that the Six individual, with a life path firmly set along a mid-course, maintains an even rhythm of life free from extreme forms of behaviour. A positive Six is a personification of sociability, companionship, good neighbourliness, guardianship, domesticity, parenthood, responsibility, service, hospitality, idealism, honesty, tolerance, serenity and refinement. They also display a keen appreciation of beauty and a predisposition to see the funny side of things. Negative 6 qualities are so different that a badly negative Six can be afflicted by many self-centred obsessions such as suspicion, fear, despair, escapism, jealousy, possessiveness and domestic tyranny.
With three major facets to their personality, each different from the other, the Twenty-Seven, by comparison with a Six, has a surprisingly complex personality structure. The Six may occupy a panoramic observation point on the mental plane but the Twenty-Seven’s programming provides extended perspectives from the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes. Understanding their personality will be a problem experienced more by others than the Twenty-Sevens themselves. If this personality has a problem it will be in relation to their interaction with others rather than any internal conflict. The 2, 7 and 9 vibrations within their personality complex integrate harmoniously. Having a vastly expanded field of consciousness they experience a high degree of frustration when others do not measure up to their broad horizons. They operate with freedom not only on the physical (7), emotional (2) and mental (9) planes of expression but also on the psychic (2) and intuitional and spiritual planes 7 & 9). Material and economic issues may engage the attention of younger Twenty-Sevens but behind these are higher impulses of spirituality and cultural values that emerge when conditions are favourable to form a synthesis of matter, intellect and spirit. Unless they have made a careful choice their partners may experience difficulty holding rank with their high-minded views on life. Six partners may not cover the same breadth of territory but their inquiring and analytical minds will cope to a large extent with the frequent surprises introduced by the Twenty-Seven.
As in the case of the Six egoistic, self-assertive, self-important and self-seeking traits are foreign to the Twenty-Seven’s temperament. These are, in fact, some of the less desirable features of the 1 vibration. However, the Twenty-Seven, no less than the Six, is strengthened by its positive and constructive features. Those who do not have this vibration in their birth months may have to consciously build up self-confidence, self-reliance, willpower and self-esteem because these characteristics are not inherited automatically from the 2, 7 and 9 vibrations. Negative tendencies in the Twenty-Seven may not be as radical as those in a Six as the overloading of a single vibration or vibrations from a single plane, which usually causes such tendencies, cannot happen to the Twenty-Seven. Their problem, should they not resort to self-development, will be basically a lack of a good self-image, initiative and the incentive to positively exploit their vast potential.
With the exception of badly negative Sixes these partners begin with an advantage not necessarily enjoyed by other couples. Free from self-importance and complacency they are open to self-study and self-improvement. In the process of enriching their relationship both partners will be prepared to begin with themselves rather than looking to each other for personality improvement. An inquiring mind directed into the study and understanding of human nature is a common feature. Their levels of tolerance may differ but this should not be a real problem. Intolerance in the form of argumentativeness is shown by the Six whenever they are confronted with irrational or unrealistic speed or behaviour. Despite the multiplicity of their assets, or perhaps in spite of them, the Twenty-Seven may on occasions lead the Six into such situations. The Twenty-Seven, for their part, becomes frustrated and explosive when they encounter narrow-mindedness, excessive deliberation, lack of enterprise, undue anxiety, and restrictions on their global outlook on life.
All Sixes have strong domestic instincts and conflict between domestic responsibilities and vocational ambitions seldom damage their quality of life. They are at their best when they feel needed as homemakers, parents and guardians or in positions of responsibility in the helping professions. Twenty-Sevens may be inclined to devote more time and energy towards their ambition in public life. This is not due to the lack of responsibility for domestic affairs but more so a stronger pull towards self-expression on a wider scale. In abstract terms their sights are set on the unplumbed depths of the world within themselves and in material and humanitarian terms on the wide world of experience. The difference in the priorities of these partners should act as an advantage when the Six assumes greater responsibility over domestic affairs and the Twenty-Seven concentrates more on financial support, with an interchange of help and advice when necessary. In a reverse position the Twenty-Seven may not be as contented as a Six.
The sociability of these partners is governed, as in others, by their quality of extroversion or degree of introversion. Though both partners are distinct personality types with social attitudes acquired from different vibratory sources no discordant notes will be sounded in their social preferences. The Six is a gently extroverted, friendly and good-natured personality, well disposed towards all persons. Negative Sixes excluded, they instinctively look on the good side of people and may even magnify the goodness they see by projecting much of their own thoughts on to others. An occasional lapse from their agreeable ways may be due to moods of anxiety and despondency to which many Sixes are susceptible. While the Six is usually the backbone of any social gathering or social organisation their time and energy will not be given at the expense of loved ones or domestic duties. The coexistence of spontaneous and reserved attitudes in the Twenty-Seven will soon become evident to their Six partners. They are often drawn two-ways in their social attitudes. The desire to meet and mingle with all levels of society could function alternately with a desire to withdraw into themselves for introspection and contemplation. Such ambivalence on the part of the Twenty-Seven creates a balance in their social needs which roughly conforms to a Six’s expectations. They would not be happy in a relationship with confirmed socialites. In the social scene, as in other areas, Sixes and Twenty-Sevens are givers rather than takers as they usually consider the wellbeing of others before their own. Unlike egoistic people who hold high opinions of themselves, not necessarily shared by others, Six and Twenty-Seven partners hold a relatively modest opinion of themselves but are highly regarded by others.
Communication between these partners and their interchange of ideas with others will not be inhibited by the lack of imagination or imperfect speech. They are not incessant talkers, but when they choose to communicate they do so with an easy flow of language. A talking Six creates an atmosphere of ease, warmth and openness which is enlivened by a victimless sense of humour and interesting anecdotes. Their body language indicates benevolence and helpfulness and is free from agitation. Twenty-Sevens appreciate and demonstrate the eloquence of words as well as the eloquence of silence. They cannot be drawn into conversation as and when it pleases another, but when they do enter conversation they reveal an unusual store of knowledge which is given out with dignified body language. Just as an aura of helpfulness and serenity attracts people to the Six an aura of wisdom attracts people to the Twenty-Seven. These partners are natural students as well as teachers and will always be engaged in interesting conversation, but communication of ideas will always be easier than communication of emotions and sentiment.
Personal relationships and family togetherness mean more to the Six than individual interests. Their hobbies and other leisure activities will usually include their partners and as many family members as possible. Their interests will be centred around the comforts of home and the convenience of local activities as most Sixes are neither travellers nor adventurers. Twenty-Sevens, in contrast, do not feel the same need to spend all their leisure time with their partners or family members. They are not entirely reclusive by nature but do need to strike out on their own and experience the world on a wider scale. While Sixes are generally indoor people Twenty-Sevens divide their interests between indoor and open air hobbies, especially those associated with nature. Home maintenance will be taken up by the Six and the garden will definitely be the Twenty-Seven’s preserve. These partners may not always do things as a pair but their hobbies will be mutually helpful rather than disconnected and unhelpful. Their interests in fact divide in order to meet again for the overall benefit of their partnership. Two of the strongest spiritual forces operate within the Twenty-Seven. Consequently, their interest could cover secular as well as spiritual aspects of life, and their influence will invariably open new experiences to the Six. Pressure on the part of the Twenty-Seven will not be needed for the Six to enter upon a spiritual mode of life as the 6 vibration occupies the border line dividing the material and spiritual aspects of life.
Both Sixes and Twenty-Sevens are motivated by high ideals and a humanitarian view of life rather than the drive for personal power and material possessions. Attachment to money, for instance, does not consume their thoughts. Money is regarded as necessary to the stability of their life and no more. The Six could prove to be a more watchful and judicious money manager. The family budget will be spread wisely and proportionately in their hands. Twenty-Sevens are not irresponsible in financial management but they may not be as methodical as the Six. Money could leave their hands in fits and starts upsetting the Six’s need for an orderly arrangement of their finances.
A Six/Twenty-Seven partnership in which both partners are for the most part positive in outlook will be essentially a mixture of serenity and vitality. It will be a situation where special talents and temperaments give value as a team and the opportunity to develop and remain friends and lovers as well as loving parents and respected citizens. It should contribute to an expansion of personality rather than a modification of too many characteristics. The Twenty-Seven is a non-possessive individual, and as such, will not encroach upon the individuality of the Six, but the Six has an element of possessiveness in their nature and should be wise enough to recognise this. Having done so, they should appreciate the Twenty-Seven’s need for time and space to retain their individuality and the larger sphere of freedom they need. As both possess a natural understanding of human nature they could expose and share their imperfections, real or imagined, without fear of misunderstanding.
6TH AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS
A 6th and 28th birthday combination is not governed entirely by even numbers or receptive forces as seems to be the case at first sight. While the single digit of the 6th day no doubt creates a basic personality structure that is essentially of a receptive nature, the multiple digit of the 28th day, when reduced to a single number, reveals a personality motivated at a fundamental level by the active forces of the 1 vibration (2 + 8 = 10 = 1). This combination will therefore be one between a pure Six personality and a qualified One. The relationship will not be quite the same as one between partners born on the 6th and 1st days of the month or the 6th and 10th days as certain definite changes are made in the 28th day by the influence of the 2 and 8 vibrations. The chapter on the 1st and 6th birthday combination, though not directly related to the present combination, will still make interesting reading. In the interplay of vibrations forming the present combination those vibrations that harmonise by virtue of their similarities are almost equal to those that complement each other by virtue of their opposite features. Dual forces will therefore operate to create an affinity between Six and Twenty-Eight partners. On the one hand, the cautious and deliberate habits of the receptive forces will prevent any hasty actions by these partners and on the other hand, the incentive of the active force within the Twenty-Eight will overcome undue hesitation and indecision.
The single vibratory force of the birthday creates a uniform personality structure and leaves no doubt about their identity as Six individuals. They may tend towards positive or negative sides of their birth force, or alternate between the two, but their Six personality will not be obscured as all 6 attributes, whether negative or positive, are precise and consistent. The 6 vibration occupies a position on the mental plane which signifies evenness in all things, but in order to maintain this evenness the Six personality needs to be charged with a generally positive vibratory structure. Those who are, for the most part, positive people adapt an impartial, neutral and middle-of-the-road approach to life. Serenity, peace and harmony are the salient features of their birth force. They cannot be hurried into decisions, actions, exertions or sudden changes in their lifestyle. While it is not in the nature of a Six to encroach upon the individuality of another their self-assertive traits are shown when they firmly resist impulsive, temperamental, immoderate and inconsistent behaviour in others which may interfere with their own ways. Resistance takes the form of rational disputation and not emotional demonstration or physical reaction. Other noticeable Six characteristics are their love of home and family life, parenthood, companionship, sociability, good neighbourliness, charity, civic responsibility, hospitality and sensitivity to beauty. They are also natural teachers, guides, instructors, counsellors and psychologists. Their ambitions are backed by ethical values and directed towards moderate and non-competitive development rather than a one-pointed drive for personal power and extensive worldly possessions. A unique feature they possess, but which may not be used by all Sixes, is the ability to step out of the mainstream of stress and turmoil and enjoy cultural and spiritual interludes. As people of good taste, many Sixes are natural connoisseurs, purists and judges in the fine arts and other comforts of life. They are conservative people who do not say or do anything that may upset conventional values, but rather accept and enjoy cultural and spiritual riches as they find them. None of these good Six characteristics will run counter to a Twenty-Eight’s expectations. However, negative Sixes are a different proposition altogether. They may take some Six attributes to extremes, and others are completely reversed. Over-attachment to home, over-dramatisation of domestic issues, abnormal concern for cleanliness and care of household effects make them extremely difficult people to get on with. They spend much of their time preoccupied with their fearful and self-centred thoughts. The sincerity, openness and simple goodness of the positive Six is replaced in varying degrees by jealousy, depression, possessiveness, suspicion and inordinate anxieties (an example of this is a person born on the 6th day of the 6th month, 1966). Positive Sixes are those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. Positivity becomes part of their integral personality through the powers of the self-directive, self-confident force of the 1 vibration. Other Sixes may vary in their degree of positivity or negativity depending on the strength of the 1 vibration in other areas of influence.
The vibration that ensures positive attitudes is a built-in feature of the Twenty-Eight’s self-confidence, self-assertiveness, willpower, initiative, decision, self-discipline and a good self-image can all be drawn from the underlying 1 vibration, and also to a lesser degree from the 8 vibration. The 8 has many features in common with the 1, and in many ways superior to the 1. However, it is most effective when supported by the 1 vibration as in the 28th day. Though the 8 is a receptive force it does not contain typical receptive qualities of cooperation, collaboration, dependency and submissive attitudes. On the contrary, it contains some of the principal attributes of active forces such as authority, leadership and initiative, but without loss of sympathy, understanding and refinement natural to their receptive polarity. These latter qualities are strengthened by the 2 aspect of their personality. The Twenty-Eight is consequently an individual with an even mixture of good judgment, sympathy, sensitivity, ambition, authority and pragmatism. The former forces will attract the Six for their corresponding features and the latter for their complementary features. Other general characteristics of the Twenty-Eight which will be welcomed and supported by the Six are their powers of organisation, their ability to take on responsibility as well as delegate responsibility, their willingness to reduce self-interest for the interest and welfare of others, family pride, and their benign form of leadership. Both partners are capable of functioning efficiently in the dual capacity of breadwinner and homemaker. However, if their natural inclinations are to be followed the Six will derive more fulfilment from that role willingly taking on greater responsibility for domestic affairs while the Twenty-Eight devotes more time and energy to public affairs. A Twenty-Eight who is confined to full-time domestic duties may develop certain dictatorial ways as a reaction to the limitations they feel in a domestic scene. The Six does best in the helping professions or in businesses relating to food, accommodation, and household and beauty products. The Twenty-Eight has a wider field in professional life and business which includes finance, Banking, the stock market, and managerial positions in any competitive business. Their administrative expertise is seen not only in their ability to delegate duties to others but also in their ability to help others help themselves. A Twenty-Eight will not take up a task that could or should be done by another as a favour or out of the goodness of their heart, which a Six is likely to do. A Six may often carry more than their share of responsibility, and in giving too much of themselves, feel unappreciated and neglected.
Sixes and Twenty-Eights are socially well adjusted people. They are neither the jovial back-slapping types nor are they aloof and uncommunicative. Comparable social aspirations will ensure compatibility in this important aspect of their relationship. For the most part they will be content to enjoy each other’s company and the company of trusted friends without being disturbed by the need for new sources of stimulation. They are equally skilled in the social graces of diplomacy, courtesy, hospitality, consideration for the convenience of others, and at reducing difficult or prickly problems that may arise in a social gathering. They are natural people who do not have to make an effort to show their best side when facing society. As neither partner seeks the limelight they are able to engage in social activities as a team rather than competitors. It is most unlikely that excessive social interests of one will bring pressure upon the other.
Both partners speak with a ring of authority which holds the attention of listeners. The authority of the Six is displayed in clear speech expressed in the manner of a teacher, advisor and instructor while that of the Twenty-Eight is seen as one accustomed to having their wishes carried out without challenge or as organisers and administrators. The Six’s voice is neither dominant nor intrusive, and carries a convincing quality that reaches into the hearts and minds of an audience. Twenty-Eights assert their views with a mixture of emotion, enthusiasm and body language that stimulates and holds the attention of their listeners. They are neither evasive nor contradictory, rather speaking out as people who know how to rally loyal supporters around them. There are Sixes and Twenty-Eights who, in varying degrees, tend towards self-analysis which often results in self deprecation rather than self -improvement. They may hesitate to discuss personal problems and emotionally charged issues. At the same time, they are not people who can remain unperturbed and go about their business while there are unresolved issues on their minds. An effort will be needed to use their basic honesty and communicative skills to overcome this problem. In addition, they should also make a conscious effort to intersperse periods of work with periods of rest and recreation.
The Six could become over attached to domesticity and tend to convert it into a full-time hobby, thereby limiting themselves and other family members to a house-bound lifestyle. This may suit the Six but not necessarily their partners or other loved ones who need a proportion of outdoor activity, travel and adventure in order to feel fulfilled. The Twenty-Eight could get tied down to their careers or business affairs and lose the opportunity to foster family togetherness. As much as they could rely on the Six to hold the family end of their partnership the situation will not be advanced without their invaluable contribution. Both may come to regret the time lost if they do not check these tendencies. This should not be difficult as they are not individuals who desire to strike out on their own. The family-oriented Six can combine splendidly with the family proud Twenty-Eight to use their leisure and holiday time in activities unrelated to their normal responsibilities.
As both partners are motivated by a high sense of responsibility and family security they are, amongst other things, sound money managers. Since the Six’s first priority will always be a well managed household all day-to-day expenditure is best handled by them. The Twenty-Eight’s attention is usually directed towards public affairs, and less time is available for household accounting. They are, in any case, better in the management of the finances of others in a business capacity rather than the routine management of their own. This partnership offers the Twenty-Eight an excellent opportunity to place money matters in the hands of their partners while they concentrate on their career. The Six’s natural anxiety over money matters will be reduced when the control of finances is in their own hands. Nothing could upset the wellbeing of a Six more than the fear of want, the absence of a well stocked larder, a wardrobe of well designed and durable clothes and a home furnished with an eye for elegance and comfort. Twenty-Eight partners do not usually have such urgent compulsions but will certainly go along with these wishes. Most importantly, the sense of security needed by both will be assured by the predictable actions of their stable temperaments.
Self-assertive and authoritative traits in some Twenty-Eights should be reserved for their dealings in public life and kept well away from family affairs. While a Six partner is not likely to feel overshadowed by a Twenty-Eight who fails to do so their logical and rational minds will create constant argument. A Six will stubbornly challenge any action or statement that does not conform to their concept of reason, balance, fair play and cooperation. Fortunately most Twenty-Eights can make this adjustment. The stronger the ego-consciousness in partners the less chances they have of a ‘give and take’ relationship, but Sixes and Twenty-Eights possess less personal egos than most which, in their case, do not get in the way of a greater awareness of things. While retaining their individuality they are also able to anticipate and respond to each other’s needs. They are people who expect love and respect rather than pity and sympathy. While their love and loyalty cannot be disputed they should ensure that the romantic aspect of their love is not neglected. A negative Six partner could create an exceptional situation. Their self-centredness makes them manipulative people who seem to control their partners by unjustly creating in them feelings of guilt and sympathy for the often pathetic state they create for themselves.
6TH AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS
In a combination comprising a single digit birthday and a multiple digit birthday several contrasts and contradictions arise from the uniform nature of the former and the multiform nature of the latter. The present combination is a clear example of a distinguishable personality type formed by the 6th day and a personality that is not easily singled out as a particular type, by the 29th day. The single vibratory force of the 6th day accounts for the unmistakable identity of the Six individual. Their actions and reactions automatically follow certain unique characteristics of the 6 vibration regardless of other vibratory influences from the rest of the birth date and the name. They may vary in terms of positive or negative expression of their birth force but they will still remain identifiable due to the precise and constant quality of all 6 attributes. This cannot be said of the 29th day or the Twenty-Nine personality, due to the interaction of a plurality of vibrations of a largely comprehensive nature. In the process of reducing the number 29 to a single digit the master vibration 11 reveals itself indicating that this superior force is latent in all Twenty-Nines (2 + 9 = 11 = 2). The Twenty-Nine’s personality is complex, expansive and enigmatic, not only due to the potential forces of the master vibration, but also to the 2 and 9 vibrations in the foreground. The 2 opens into the emotional plane giving sensitivity to physical conditions and receptivity to extrasensory perception. While providing the Twenty-Nine with warmth and gentleness it also causes many variations in their behaviour as this vibration does not help its subjects make themselves positive to a multitude of exterior and interior forces that affect them. The 2 also appears as the underlying force in the Twenty-Nine. Most Twenty-Nines do not consciously draw upon the full power of the master vibration but instead function as superior Two personalities. They can be classed as superior Twos as many attributes of the master vibration exercise a subconscious influence upon them. With the dual influence of the 2 vibration covering the outer and inner personality there is an enhancement of the Twenty-Nine’s sensitivity, changeability and psychic faculty. The 9 vibration despite its distance from the 2 in the single digit spectrum, 1 to 9, and its position on the mental plane, has many features in common with the 2, which have a dual effect upon the personality. On the one hand there is a weakening of some of these features through an overloading and on the other hand there is a limitless expansion of the personality. Self-consciousness, indecision, emotionalism, moodiness, dependence and fear of loneliness are some of the weaker qualities while intuition, diagnostic ability, healing, sympathy, wisdom, understanding and breadth of vision are some of their traits that are expanded. Despite the considerable difference in the framework of the personality of the Six and Twenty-Nine there is a close affinity between the individual vibrations interacting in the combination. Their sympathetic interaction will ensure compatibility between these partners. No doubt, certain mutual adjustments will be necessary when the expectations of the Twenty-Nine calls for an expansion of the Six’s horizons and the Six’s influence modifies certain precipitate and impulsive actions by the Twenty-Nine.
The mental Six and the mental/emotional Twenty-Nine need a stabilising force from the physical plane in order to round off their overall personality. Without this facet to their personality they could fall short of many self-directing, self-sufficient and self-protective qualities needed for full positive exploitation of their potential. The 1 vibration, preferably in the birth month, will provide these assets, and safeguard them from the neutralising effects of doubts and fears caused by self-deprecation, poor self-esteem and defensive attitudes. It may operate in other areas of influence but its effectiveness is not as constant as it is from the birth month. The 4 and 7 vibrations in the birth month provide practical aptitudes and down-to-earth values but not the impetus and drive found in the 1 vibration. Self-confidence, decision, ambition, willpower and a healthy self-love are qualities gained by Sixes and Twenty-Nines who possess this vibration in their birth month. The Six who is inclined towards excessive negativity may tend towards suspicion, jealousy, possessiveness and many irrational anxieties: while Twenty-Nines who are not reinforced by the 1 vibration experience difficulty maintaining a sense of direction and stability in their emotional lives. They may be exceptionally knowledgeable and capable people in other respects but their personal lives may have many ups and downs. Positive Sixes and positive Twenty-Nines are in control of their lives with the willpower to make adjustments and compromises needed for personal success and success in their relationships. Positivity in one partner is sufficient to ensure a good measure of success in this combination as this partner will invariably assume a leading role. The most important features distinguishing these partners are the domestic, family and community minded temperament of the Six and the Twenty-Nine’s orientation towards public life, travel and international affairs as well as a private yearning for spiritual development. A unifying force will be their strong humanitarian outlook on life, The Six’s view of things will, however, be regional while the Twenty-Nine’s outlook will be international.
As the love of home vibrates in every strand of their nature Six partners are ready to assume a greater share of domestic responsibility. Their influence is spread by the example they set in their dedication to duty and the welfare of their loved ones. Their high ideals are balanced by realistic and rational attitudes. Twenty-Nines, in contrast, are inclined to be carried away by their emotions, ideals and distant perspectives. Their actions and reactions are not as predictable and dependable as those of the Six. With the Six in charge the home will be run on well regulated and consistent lines but with the Twenty-Nine as the homemaker the home management could be disorderly and confused as they cannot adjust as well as a Six to routine, timetables and responsible budgeting. Domestic life will not be a full expression of the Twenty-Nine’s potential and therefore its manifold duties will not receive their dedicated attention, much to the dissatisfaction of a Six partner. Unlike a Six there is something in their nature that does not take kindly to the notion of being bound to do what they would do readily enough if they are not bound. This partnership will turn into a real success if circumstances favour a Six homemaker and/or part-time worker and a Twenty-Nine as the principal breadwinner. Moral support for each other is all that is needed and this will be given without hesitation. The reverse position will by no means lead to failure of the partnership but perhaps to the loss of real fulfilment on the part of both parties.
Both Sixes and Twenty-Nines are extroverted and sociable individuals but the range of their sociability is closely related to their separate temperaments. Sixes are generally conservative people who feel secure within traditional order of society and among old and trusted friends and strictly selected social activity. The only occasion they may find themselves in contact with unconventional elements of society is when such elements are introduced by the Twenty-Nine or when they function as confidants and counsellors. Twenty-Nines are instinctively avant-garde people who place no reservations on the range or levels of social life. Unlike the middle-of-the-road Six they need a wide sphere of interests and are quite able to cope with a cross-section of people and swiftly moving social changes. Among the social graces that both partners have in common are a clean sense of humour, unselfishness, open-heartedness, informality, humanitarian attitude, the ability to put people at ease and move comfortably among all age groups. Both can reap many advantages from their different social attitude once a balance is reached between the Six’s desire for limited social movement and the Twenty-Nine’s desire for extended social activities.
When Sixes and Twenty-Nines function at their best they are excellent conversationalists. Between themselves and with others they are seldom at a loss for interesting topics, stories and anecdotes. Their mental flexibility is such that they could alternate discussions of mundane affairs and abstract subjects without effort and at the same time enliven their speech with a lively and inoffensive sense of humour. This sense of humour is often directed against themselves and the frailties of human nature. Although endowed with the gift of speech they are not incessant talkers, and often resort to brief periods of silence for positive self-communication and reflection. It is also in their nature to fall into negative periods of silence induced by moodiness and depression. The greater degree of negativity in each personality the longer the time they take to come out of these moods. Arguments could arise when some Twenty-Nines display irrational or temperamental behaviours and force the Six into an entrenched position, or when a Six stubbornly refuses to fall in with the broader perspectives of the Twenty-Nine. In such arguments Twenty-Nines could express their emotions in very demonstrative body language while the Six remains adamant and undemonstrative. However, it will be against the nature of both to retain ill feelings or resentments over prolonged periods.
Some mutual concessions will be required in their choice of spare time activities. While neither partner has the desire to spend free time away from the other in individual hobbies, the things that attract them usually follow opposite directions. Sixes are averse to movement and change due to their housebound temperament. They are quite content spending time at home enjoying home beautification, music, literature and the occasional entertaining of guests, especially family. The preparation of meals is not regarded as a necessary duty but is instead raised to the status of a hobby and even a fine art. They could, however, be enticed from their home by demands for their voluntary services by charitable, social and sporting organisations. While a Six can sit back and enjoy the good things of life they have gathered around them, Twenty-Nines yield easily to an irresistible desire for movement, travel, new experience, and a quest for abstract knowledge. Their interests are invariably outside the home and frequently changing in direction. Those Twenty-Nines who are not supported by a physical vibration in their birth months are exposed to the danger of gathering an enormous amount of knowledge and experience, yet losing touch with practical application. A wise Six partner could slow down and contain much of the Twenty-Nine’s restlessness while the influence of the Twenty-Nine could widen a Six partner’s horizons. Social service is one definite area in which these partners can act as a team. However, while endeavouring to act as helpful members of society they should take care not to fall victim to society’s demands. The Twenty-Nine especially could get embroiled in external interests at the expense of their own wealth and family togetherness.
A likely source of trouble and one which will be difficult to reconcile is their different attitudes towards money and consequent management of their financial affairs. While security in the form of a well established financial position is a high priority in the Six’s scheme of things Twenty-Nines do not give as much thought to security in terms of money. Money in their hands could go out as fast as it comes in causing a good deal of anxiety to a Six partner. Sixes are by no means niggardly in their spending habits. They are generous but responsible spenders. Unlike the Twenty-Nine they do not act on impulse or through impatience. Their method of handling money reflects the evenness of temperament natural to all Sixes, while the Twenty-Nine’s spending habits reflect their variable and impatient temperament. There is also a greater degree of attachment to material luxuries by the Six and less attachment to material things by the Twenty-Nine. Sixes believe home and family should be looked after before their generosity is extended to others but Twenty-Nines may not see the need for such a gradation of values.
As a Six/Twenty Nine partnership is much more than a physically based union, sex, while being an important aspect of their lives, will not be an overriding factor. Mutual expressions of genuine comradeship and non-sexual love will establish strong long-term bonds. The Twenty Nine’s method of expressing both sexual and non-sexual feeling is more intense than the Six’s whose undemonstrative nature may not respond as spontaneously to the Twenty-Nine’s advances. Many Sixes may take time to understand the tempestuous emotional forces that build up inside the Twenty-Nine creating the need for a physical outlet, often in the form of sexual release. The placid temperament of the Six needs to be brought gently into the right frame of mind before they can participate willingly in lovemaking. Both partners are highly romantic people in their own way, the only difference is quiet emotions in one and turbulent emotions in the other.
6TH AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS
The Zero in a birthday does not contribute distinctive personality traits but it does intensify the attributes of the attributes of the number to which it is attached. Persons born on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of the month are therefore not different in temperament to those born on the 10th, 20th or 30th, except for intensification in expression of the personality traits of the latter group.
A 6th and 30th birthday combination will be the same as the 3rd and 6th combination. Clear-cut Six and Three personalities are found in both combinations. The only difference to be noted is the emphasis in the Thirty/Three of 3 attributes which may be expressed in negative or positive ways.
6TH AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS
Interaction between a straightforward Six personality and a qualified Four personality will be seen in this combination. Their relationship will be the same as that between a Six and another qualified Four, namely an individual born on the 13th day of any month. 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 Six personality.
The chapter on 6th and 13th birthdays should be consulted.
