3RD AND 3RD BIRTHDAYS

People born on the same birthdays are almost identically cast in regard to their personality traits and talents. Some differences will, no doubt, be present due to the influence of vibrations of the birth month and year. However, as the vibrations of the birthday form the basic personality type, the mutual attraction of opposites, which is the basis of most successful partnerships, will not be experienced by them. A combination of a couple of Three personalities will be more accidental than natural, and sooner or later, the adjustments required to form an interlocking relationship may be beyond their capacity. The predominating qualities of both are the same, and consequently, they do not have much to give or take from each other. Their similarities are more likely to lead to frequent confrontation and separation than to understanding and integration.

The division of authority and responsibility, so essential in all partnerships, will be a potent source of conflict in most Three/Three combinations. As the qualities of leadership and the execution of command are instinctive to the 3 vibration, Threes will inevitably become locked in a power struggle. Constant verbal duelling will be the order of the day, as one tries to gain ascendency over the other in all aspects of life. The 3 vibration is not rich in the spirit of cooperation and conciliation. Threes, like their One counterparts, perform unwillingly and poorly in subordinate positions. Starting on an equal level with any personality type, they will soon endeavour to assume the authoritative role. In a Three/Three combination, when both partners are positive personalities the leadership issue will not be settled. They usually end up ignoring each other’s role expectations and continue an ego-centred way of life. The best they would do is agree to disagree.

Self-expression in a variety of ways is the most urgent need of subjects of the 3 vibration. The chances are that a pair of Three personalities will be competitive and even destructive of each other’s self-expression. They are essentially self-centred individuals whose accentuated self-expression is channelled into individual effort and not into cooperation or collaboration with others. In the event of group participation they function at their best as leaders of the group.

The 3 vibration is an active force operating entirely on the mental plane with a youthful freshness and vigour. Threes are known for their buoyant, optimistic, and extroverted outlook on life. A Three/ Three partnership will be overloaded with positive and negative characteristics of the 3 vibration. It will lack the balancing effects of vibrations from the emotional and physical planes as well as the influence of receptive vibrations. The situation may be improved to some degree by vibrations found in the birth month of one or both partners.

The nature of the 3 vibration will draw both partners into a great variety of activity. All Threes aim to rise high in the world of action. High ambition prevents them from accepting the usually unrecognised responsibilities of domestic life. Domesticity is seen as a containment of their extroverted nature, their highly imaginative minds and natural urge for a variety of avenues for self-expression. Domesticity is also held as a low priority as it does not offer frequent interaction and intermingling with people. The bread and butter as it were, of Three personalities is their communication with people in their public life as well as private life. The frustration of the partner who is deprived of this opportunity will turn to dictatorial attitudes within the home. When both partners are engaged in fulfilling personal ambition, as they are most likely to do, disorganised domestic conditions are inevitable.

The genuine socialite is found amongst Three personalities. A life devoid of the stimulation of company, romance, excitement, humour, entertainment and the pursuit of happiness and beauty is only half a life for most Threes. A partnership between a pair of socialites will understandably involve all sorts of complications. Both will be keen to maintain a favourable image in society, and their nature is such that they do so as individuals rather than as partners. They are happiest when they are active and involved in several directions. They may often find themselves working at cross-purposes. Three personalities are always socially popular. They are also the most articulate of all personality types and therefore make splendid conversationalists who rarely lack a subject to talk on. Positive Threes could be counted upon to set the table in a roar in any social gathering. Negative Threes are more inclined to talk about themselves and their dependants. Threes are impatient listeners, and in their race to take centre stage these partners will constantly call attention to themselves by cutting into each other’s conversation. For the most part, they have no idea they are being rude when they openly steal each other’s thunder. This contradicts the Three’s established reputation as a friendly and well-mannered person. The problem arises only when two or more Threes meet on the same platform. Their natural talents as performing artists are carried into most of their activities, including the social arena.

As the Three’s lifestyle is a demonstration of many-sided activity, several hobbies will be taken up by these partners, none of which is likely to last for great lengths of time. As in all other aspects of life many interests seem equally attractive to them. Their adventurous spirit forever reaches out for new horizons of experience. Their individualistic nature is such that they are more likely to go their own ways rather than join forces in their spare time. However, if they are able to compromise and use their creative imaginations as a team in artistic expression, especially as performing artists, they are bound to make a considerable impact in the field of entertainment.

Although all Threes have an accurate eye for detail, are good at figures, and make good accountants, they are bad money managers in their private lives. While they have the capacity to bring in money on a regular basis, they also have the capacity to spend it with the same regularity. Quite often, expenditure will exceed income. Many factors combine to prevent them from establishing a secure financial position. They are optimistic and present-moment oriented, and long-term financial planning does not concern them. Their generosity, hospitality and a variety of commitments are a constant drain on their resources. Both partners keep up with fashion and are even leaders of fashion. A high percentage of their income is spent on personal adornment. Unlike other partners they will not blame themselves or each other during a financial crisis, but will instead set out to find ways and means of making a quick recovery. The partnership will be more stable if one or both partners has a money management number in their birth month, such as a 1, 4, 7 or 8.

Threes rely on word power and not so much on body language to communicate their feelings. If laughter is regarded as a form of body language, all Threes are rich in this much valued form of expression. Not only do they know how to laugh, but they also create laughter in others. Although this gift has the potential to give much happiness to a Three/Three partnership, other factors will prevent it from being used to full advantage. Three personalities constantly crave the admiration and attention of others, especially their partners. When this is received they respond with imagination and loyalty. In the present combination each partner will demand solicitude from the other with little thought of giving of themselves in the first instance. As both are cast in the same mould their similar needs and equal level of self-esteem prevent an even exchange of solicitude. The position is aggravated by the Three personality’s inclination towards flirtation. The roving eye of the Three may be attributed to a youthful nature, the artist’s appreciation of beauty and colour, and opportunities provided by their wide social involvement and social popularity.

When both partners are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months the chances of compromise are remote. They will be forever competing with one another. If one partner is born in one of these months, it will be this partner who will automatically take charge and offer some chance of success. The absence of the activator 1 vibration in the birth month of the other diminishes this partner’s willpower and decision making ability. A partnership in which neither partner has the strengthening 1 vibration in the birth month or other significant area of influence will be fraught with so many inconsistencies that chances of success are as remote as the first category, but for different reasons.

3RD AND 4TH BIRTHDAYS

Readers who are unfamiliar with the symbolism of numbers may expect some similarity in individuals born on the 3rd and 4th days of the month. Understandably, they may assume that consecutive days would produce personalities who are not too different from one another. They would not imagine that consecutive numbers may represent vibrations that are poles apart, as they frequently do. This is, in fact, the case with the forces symbolised by the 3 and 4. The 3 represents an active force on the mental plane and the 4, a passive or receptive power on the physical plane. In addition, out of the three mental plane vibrations, the 3 is the most vibrant, youthful and energetic, while the 4 is the most physical and solid of the three physical plane vibrations. These opposite forces are directly reflected in the personalities of people born on the 3rd and 4th.

As Three and Four personalities operate on different wavelengths there is rarely an opportunity for spontaneous attraction. Should their paths cross lightly they may hardly notice each other as they will be much too busy engaged in their own affairs to observe one another. However, if circumstances offer them the opportunity to get to know each other over a period of time, there is no doubt that they will see, both consciously and unconsciously, that they are able to give and receive from each other exactly what they are unable to provide for themselves. Yet, a merger into an interlocking relationship will be preceded by an apprenticeship of realisation and acceptance of their differences. This will be followed by considerable personal adjustment on a give and take basis before they begin to reap positive advantages. The initiative towards forming a closer friendship will not be taken by the conservative and cautious Four but will instead be taken up by the extroverted, articulate and adventuresome Three.

Hasty marriage or relationships based on physical attraction alone will result in early disillusionment when the speed of the Three clashes with the deliberation of the Four. Neither party will be aware of their opposite natures or be ready to appreciate the advantages that flow from personality modification.

The dynamic and highly imaginative lifestyle of the Three and the set habits, uncompromising opinions and generally unimaginative mind of the Four illustrates the basic differences between these partners. While the Three takes care to set aside proportionate time for work and pleasure, and is even able to mix the two, work will always take precedence over pleasure with the Four. As the symbol of youth and freshness, the 3 vibration generates in its subjects an ever widening range of interests. The symbol of solidity and efficiency the 4 vibration confines its subjects to definite areas of activity and growth with little departure from the established order of things. Fours are natural people with no facade and they have a tendency towards narrow-mindedness. The flexible nature of the Three is able to take life as it comes, while the staid nature of the Four resents change and reacts adversely to unexpected situations. These differences are seen in the expressed opinions of these partners. Threes, who have no difficulty altering or updating their opinions as a result of changing circumstances, may often meet with stubborn resistance from the hard-line Fours, especially when opinions of a radical nature are presented. Threes also make instant decisions, most of which will be challenged by Fours, who will not easily be hurried or convinced. Fours will not admit that a task or problem has beaten them but their Three partners will readily switch to something new.

There are other differences that could cause initial disillusionment, but, with understanding and acceptance, they could also become interlocking factors in their relationship. For instance, their standards of judgment are fundamentally different. The Four will assess a person, situation or thing for practical value, while the Three sees the aesthetic side for colour, beauty and artistic perfection. The Three has a natural urge to lead and direct, and is likely to challenge authority. Fours are not interested in leadership and are content to follow authority. Once the Four is convinced of the stability of the authority, their loyalty becomes unquestionable. In a Three/Four partnership the leadership role will be settled in favour of the Three. However, the Three should have the wisdom to take time to give ear to the Four’s considered opinions. Although the Four will be fulfilled occupying an essential position in the background, this partner’s practical advice will be much too valuable to be ignored. The Three is not suited for a domestic life. Physical chores, timetables and routine responsibilities associated with the domestic scene will be most burdensome to the mentally restless and vivacious Three personality.

Motivation on a much wider field without timetables is sought by them. The need for self-discipline is apparent in most Threes. On the other hand, the nature of domestic duties will fit in splendidly with the regular habits, self-discipline and physically strong Four. The partnership has every chance of success in the material sense if the ambitious Three is the principal income earner and the Four takes care of the home and family. If circumstances do not dictate otherwise this is the natural situation into which these personalities will arrange themselves. If the order is reversed several problems will be faced. The home will not be efficiently run by the Three. Furthermore, the Three will not be satisfied with the income the Four brings in. This ambitious partner will not be content with the steady progress made by the non-competitive Four and will constantly urge them on towards rapid advancement. This could indeed be to their mutual advantage as long as the Four is not pushed beyond their capacity. The difference once again is in their attitudes. The Three seeks expansion while the Four seeks consolidation. The Three may lose sight of the future in present moment living, while the Four may lose sight of the present in their concern for the future and their concentration on work.

These partners can operate as a successful and popular team in the social scene. They will not be found treading on each other’s toes, as it were, as each will take up a separate mode of expression. As a pair they will perform best in outdoor engagements when the extroverted Three takes over entertainment and the busy Four looks after the practical side. This will not be an unbalanced situation as the Three will shy away from practical jobs as much as the Four will avoid frontline duties as a host or hostess. In indoor circles the position will remain nearly the same, as the Three will retain the centre position as entertainer and leading conversationalist. With less practical duties to perform the Four will choose to take up a position in the background as a contented listener. They are seldom active in general conversation which may include a good deal of wit and banter when a Three is around. They do, however, make valuable contributions when conversation takes on practical issues. Fours do not call attention to themselves as their Three partners constantly do. They are unmoved by fast talk and flattery, say exactly what they think, and do not waste words. Threes can be influenced by the admiration and adulation of friends and other interested people. They usually have a host of friends and acquaintances with a fast turnover, while Fours have few friends who may remain close for a lifetime. In their private lives most of the talking will be done by the Three. Whenever there is a difference of opinion the Three may use all their powers of speech, but if a practical solution to a problem is not offered the Four will not be moved. Threes should exercise strict control over their tendency to be cutting and critical when they are not able to get their own way. Abuse of their ability to articulate their feelings will cause deep hurts to the feelings of the orally restricted Four.

Four partners turn out to be the true handyperson. Tradesmen are seldom called into their homes. Their leisure time is spent fixing things and in hobbies such as carpentry, pottery, sculpture, metal work, gold and gem fossicking or anything else in which they can use natural dexterity with their hands. A workshop will be an integral part of a Four’s home. In addition, they also have a strong pull towards the land and its produce. Unless strongly supported in other areas of the birth date and name, Threes can hardly be expected to join their practical Four partners in these hobbies; neither would the Fours welcome their impractical opinions and contributions. The creative imagination of all Threes is directed almost exclusively into some form of artistic expression. Music, fashion, design, modelling, decorating, painting, poetry, song writing -and other hobbies in the fine arts are some of these forms. Threes and Fours tend towards different directions even in their sporting activities. Fours will show a greater partiality and skill for body contact sport and for professional status. Threes are all-round sportspersons and give up body contact sports in preference to finer forms and usually retain amateur status. While financial profit derived from sport is important to the Four, the fame acquired is more attractive to the Three. The social aspect of sport also takes up much of the Three’s time, but only a limited amount of time for the Four. These partners are quite sufficient unto themselves and generally do not call upon each other for participation in each other’s particular interests.

Many serious differences of opinion will arise in the financial aspect of the partnership. The widest contrasts between these partners will be evident in their attitude towards expenditure. The Three has expensive tastes and an active lifestyle that makes considerable demands on their finances. They are generous and optimistic with little concern for their future needs. They look more at the decorative value rather than the utility value of an article purchased. Some Threes could be quite reckless in their spending habits. Fours have directly opposite habits. They have simple tastes and their lifestyle is generally home based. They are also able to look after themselves in all practical matters while the Three has to pay others to do many things for them. Fours are thrifty individuals who constantly seek bargains. Nothing is purchased unless it has some utility value. The aesthetic aspect does not concern them. Some Fours could be niggardly and grasping. As excellent money managers, the financial side of this partnership should be held in the safe hands of the Four. As a generalisation, it may be said that, while the Three’s head may be in the clouds, the Four’s feet are firmly kept on the ground. This can be applied, again in general terms, to other aspects of living.

For an ideal intimate relationship, a bridging emotional vibration is needed between the mental Three and the physical Four. This will be seen at its best when both partners are born in the 2nd, 5th or 8th months. These numbers will give them more than adequate expression on the emotional plane. When there is no outlet for emotional expression the absence of spontaneous emotional demonstration of love and affection will be particularly evident in the Four. This partner’s emotions will be channelled into physical activity in the form of duty towards loved ones, not satisfying the romantic mind of the Three who expects a good deal of sympathetic attention from their partner. The busy Four will have no time to fuss over a Three partner. The emotions of the Three are expressed in laughter, fluency of speech and flowery language. This method of communication does not impress the pragmatic Four, and a Three partner inevitably suffers frustration from the absence of response. Both the 3 and 4 vibrations engender high sexual activity in their subjects and these partners will eventually overcome their differences and enjoy good sex lives. The effervescent and imaginative nature of the Three will no doubt brighten up the rather serious outlook the Four takes on all things, including their sex lives. More variety will be introduced by the Three. The Three is inclined to be flirtatious yet, it is not likely that they will stray from the unlimited physical comforts the Four is able to offer. In all other aspects of life the Four remains constant and loyal to one partner.

Threes and Fours born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are strong, self-confident personalities. They will take a longer time to fall into a give and take relationship. Once a settlement has been reached, the Four will be found undertaking a greater share of responsibility. If one partner is born in one of these months, it will be this partner who will take up the dominant role. Partners who are not born in any of these months will be less individualistic and find it easier to accommodate to each other’s ways.

3RD AND 5TH BIRTHDAYS

The powers of the 3 and 5 vibrations reveal so many apparent similarities of manner in subjects of these birthdays that on casual acquaintance they may be taken for personality types cast in the same mould. While a close study of these vibrations will confirm the relative accuracy of these first impressions it also discloses subtle differences in the form of expression of these similarities. In almost all forms of expression the 3 and 5 act as supercharged active forces; the 3 operating exclusively on the mental plane and the 5 extensively on the emotional plane. Herein lies the reason for their different mode of manifestation. The Five personality, at the same time, has certain definite advantages over the Three or another personality type for that matter. While other vibrations are confined to operation on a particular plane of expression, the 5 is not confined exclusively to the emotional plane. It has ready access to the mental and physical as well.

The chances of a sympathetic attraction between these personality types based on mutual admiration of opposite traits are very remote. They posses too many characteristics that may lead to instant rivalry, head-on collision or the tendency to avoid each other in order to prevent a clash of interests. However, due to the romantic nature of the Three, the sensuous nature of the Five, and the recklessness of both, these personalities could very well get together through a purely physical attraction. If this occurs they will sooner or later be called upon to make several personal adjustments for everyday living for which neither will show much willingness. Basically, the Three is an ego centred personality who concentrates on individual self-expression. They feel that the world revolves around them. The Five is observant; alert to the presence of others, and uses the world as a field of experience. Personal freedom is taken as a natural right. Neither party will brook any interference in their lifestyle. These are the hallmarks of Threes and Fives which are not entirely conducive to unity or an intertwining relationship.

Both partners are clearly extroverted individuals but on closer examination it will be found that there is a noteworthy difference in their forms of extroversion. The Three is oriented towards people and social life while the Five’s predominant urge is towards physical activity. The ever present need of the Three is self-expression and the Three partner will be found seeking ways and means to do so in every aspect of life. To experience life in all its forms is what the Five is compelled to do by the highly complex nature of the 5 vibration. In doing so they move even further afield than the active Three. Curiosity, ability and physical courage are just a few among many qualities that motivate this enigmatic personality. As feverish activity covering a variety of interests is characteristic of both partners a settled and harmonious lifestyle will be a rarity, if not an impossibility in a Three/Five partnership. Attempts to assume an authoritative role and divide responsibilities will create a perennial source of friction between the two. Neither one will give up some identity as an individual in exchange for identity they can create as a member of a partnership. It is unlikely that one will feel dependent on the other and open themselves out for positive reinforcement through interaction. They are more likely to expose themselves to negative feedback. The Three, with natural qualities of leadership, will attempt to assume control of the partnership and will almost immediately discover the elusive and intricate nature of the Five. The Five personality does not directly take up the role of leader, but rather, their dominant inclination is to organise the lives of others, particularly their partner’s, to conform with their ideals of living. They have calculating minds that are used to manipulate situations. They find their match when they attempt to manage Three partners. The Three turns out to be equally elusive and intractable. The subtle difference here is that, while the Three is naturally inclined to command and order, the Five is inclined to manipulate and invent strategies to get their own way. As Fives miss nothing that goes on around them they are much more in control of situations than Three partners.

Both partners are restless types. The Five is a high tension personality who uses up a great deal of nervous energy. The mental restlessness of the Three is caused by a fertile mind and a powerful imagination. The restlessness of these personalities is aggravated when they find themselves in subordinate positions or in confined situations with limited options for self-expression. They are ambitious and highly competitive individuals who do not wait for opportunity to knock, but rather, will go out seeking new challenges. Direct action, prompted by brisk and decisive minds marks their method of progress. As these are among the most versatile of all personality types they strike out in several directions and habitually do more than one thing at a time. They are seldom able to resist the temptation of a new activity and as a result leave incomplete studies or any other enterprise they have started with great enthusiasm.

Neither partner is attuned to a domestic way of life. As this aspect of life necessitates a fair amount of self-sacrifice, restraint, routine and timetables, a regular feature of this partnership will be non-acceptance, non-compliance or neglect of ordinary domestic duties. Both expect to enter world affairs, and this will be done at the expense of domestic harmony and stability. These personality types are attracted to a great variety of things and are not held down by anything. Therefore, they should not be called upon to assume routine responsibilities. On the other hand both have the capacity to handle emergencies. While the Three is confined to the mental plane and has poor practical application, the Five will always display a greater all-round capacity.

Both partners display their best form in the social scene. They are informal, approachable and casual in their manner. They enter the limelight with the least effort and hold the centre of attention at any social gathering. Their unconventional and flamboyant styles are not hampered by the opinions of more conservative types. Both call attention to themselves – the Three with the touch of the performing artist and the Five as an actor, motivator and organiser. The Five, in particular, is able to change their manner of behaviour to an astonishing degree depending on the people they are mixing with. This inevitably leads to many inaccurate impressions of the Five made by others. In fact, the Five can only be classified as a mercurial personality type. To classify them into any other category will lead to disillusionment. There is a higher degree of inconsistency in the Five than in the Three or in any other personality type. The Three, on the other hand could safely be classed as a socially oriented person. Their friendly attitude can be counted upon. As mentioned earlier the first priority of the Three is people, while activity comes first with the Five, and people are accepted along with their activities. Both partners will have several friends and acquaintances. The Three will endeavour to retain their friendships despite a constantly increasing number, but the Five moves on with a quick turnover. These partners may not clash in their choice of company and social engagements but problems will arise in setting priorities in a full social calendar. At the same time, they feel no need to call upon each other for support in their social life. They are quite likely to choose their own groups. Once again, the domestic situation will feel the effects of frequent absences. Neither party will be prepared to stay at home while the other is out.

This is a combination of two sharp-witted and verbally gifted persons. Speech is the most marketable commodity both partners have to offer, but this talent can be put to negative use when it is turned against themselves. Having no oral frustration both partners are really great talkers, who constantly interrupt each other. Few statements or opinions go unchallenged. Both use criticism and sarcasm as weapons of attack. The Five, in addition, uses unrestrained body language to get their points across. A combination of a strong voice, sometimes strident, and ample emotional demonstration enriches their delivery with animation and sensuality. The Three, however, has the advantage of better tonal quality in their voices and as they are not carried away by emotion they are less likely to say things they will regret later. In a serious confrontation the Three confidently relies on mental agility and verbal effectiveness. The Five has the same advantages but may also resort to negative forms of emotional release in irrational argument, raised voices and even in misuse of crockery! They do not hesitate to offer illogical reasons to justify their impulsive remarks and actions. This gives the Three an opening to turn their powers of satire and ridicule upon their Five partners.

Following the exuberant nature of the 3 and 5 vibrations these partners will involve themselves in several leisure activities, especially those of a youthful and extroverted nature. As in their social life, they will not call upon each other for joint participation in hobbies, but rather will be more likely to go their own ways. The needs of the home will not hold them back. The Five’s personal time will be spent, for the most part, outside home in physical activities that offer challenges to their combined mental and physical prowess, and in which an element of danger is presented. Activities such as motor racing, mountaineering, flying, sailing, acrobatics, body contact sport, the volunteer forces, freelance journalism, or as activists in any cause associated with freedom of speech and action will attract them. The impulsive nature of the Five combined with instant reflexes ensures success in these enterprises. Some Fives, whose impulsive nature is not under control, become accident prone and are likely to become involved in litigation. Fives are also natural gamblers who cannot be kept away from games of chance. The Three may find the Five’s favourite outlets attractive but their socially oriented and artistic minds prevent them from maintaining sustained interest in these essentially physical pastimes.

As natural entertainers many of them will be attracted to the performing arts. Others find expression in painting, decorating, fashion modelling, club secretaries, hosts and hostesses and other socially oriented pastimes.

It is most unlikely that these partners will reach any sort of accord in joint control of their finances or agree to one or the other taking care of expenditure. They are both free-spending types who will resist interference in their freedom to handle money. Threes part with their money through generosity directed firstly towards satisfying their own expensive tastes and then towards giving pleasure to others. The Five is even more self-indulgent and is inclined to impulsive spending in a more extended field of activity. Neither personality has an attachment to money for its own sake. It is regarded merely as a means to procure their wants. The saving habit is alien to both natures. More often than not they will be found battling to keep income ahead of expenditure. However, they are optimistic and resourceful individuals with the incentive to use more than one of their many talents at any given time, and they will seldom be without lucrative employment. In addition, they possess a built-in safeguard of being able to cope with the setbacks of life and so will initiate a quick recovery.

High sexual activity is a feature of the 3 and 5 vibrations and these partners could work toward sexual compatibility even though in other aspects of living they may choose separate ways. Their sex lives will never be dull and restricted due to the experimental nature of both partners. Being a highly imaginative character, the Three’s love life is steeped in romance and sentiment. They are easily hurt if the romantic aspect of their love, along with their craving to be appreciated, is not reciprocated. Unfortunately, the Five may not be sufficiently attentive to these needs. Though the Five is an emotionally oriented individual the physical aspect of sex is given much more attention than are the romantic and sentimental aspects. Despite the romanticism of the Three, which in any case is mostly mental, they maintain a comfort zone which is more extended than that of the Five. Threes need more space between themselves and their loved ones. Fives enjoy greater physical closeness and also use the sense of touch as an intimate means of communication. Both personalities have a roving eye. As the Three lives a life of thought and imagination for the most part, their flirtations usually remain on non-physical levels. The Five, whose life is a life of sensations, could follow up their flirtations with physical involvement.

Partnerships that will have the most difficulty will be those in which both partners are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months. These partners will be too individualistic and self-willed to see that relationship adjustments are a mutual responsibility. If one partner is born in one of these months, it will be this partner who will assume to a greater degree the controlling power. If neither is born in one of these months both partners will lack leadership, direction and purpose.

3RD AND 6TH BIRTHDAYS

The mental plane figures prominently in this combination of birthdays. Mental orientation of Three and Six personalities becomes their strongest link with both positive and negative consequences. At the same time, the conspicuous nature of their mental characteristics highlights the absence of attributes relative to the emotional and physical planes. The position may be altered if one or both partners are favoured by these vibrations in their birth months. However, their mind and not their hearts or hands remain the guiding force. Heart and hands are the preserves of emotionally and physically oriented personalities. Despite their mental orientation Three and Six personalities cannot be classed as characters out of the same mould as the active nature of the 3 vibration and the receptive nature of the 6 vibration reveal several differences in the manner in which their minds govern their lives. The 3 vibration is the symbol of vibrant youth while the 6 symbolises a mature state of balance and harmony, reflecting many maternal or paternal characteristics. The imaginative powers, spontaneity and optimism of the Three are replaced by logic, analysis and caution in the thought processes of the Six. While the Three may be depended upon to make instant decisions and sudden changes, the Six takes time for much deliberation before acting. They retreat within themselves if hurried or crowded into making decisions, promises or taking instant action. In these differences lie the potential for friction and frustration in Three/Six partnerships. At the same time, they serve on the one hand as a good foil for the impetuosity of the Three partner, and on the other hand, as a stimulus for the unhurried movements of the Six.

Another noticeable difference in these partners is the ego-centredness of the Three and the group-centredness of the Six. While the Three has outstanding qualities of leadership, ambition and enterprise, they also need the support of a caring partner. To set themselves up for approval is also part and parcel of the Three’s youthful nature. Their self-confidence is built, not only upon the degree of solicitude and approbation received from a partner but also from all others as well. Also, whether they admit it or not, they need guidance and direction in the earlier years of maturity. The group-centred mentality of the Six, plus paternal and maternal instincts, provide greater detachment from their egos and a desire to nurture and protect their loved ones. Their evenly balanced personalities display a passive form of leadership in the guise of parenting, teaching and counselling. They are admirably qualified to meet the needs of a Three partner. Sixes are more self-sufficient in the management of their own lives and the lives of their loved ones than is the Three. Sixes radiate an aura of personal warmth that attracts not only the Three personality but also several other personality types. Their warmth is of a deep psychological nature rather than one of spasmodic emotional demonstration.

Love and attachment to home and family are among the fundamental characteristics of the 6 vibration and the life path of the Six personality follows this direction against all other pressures. The domestic life of this partner is well planned and orderly, with priority given to good food, physical comfort, tasteful decor and above all the preservation of domestic felicity. The Three, who will always be involved in several outside interests, finds these qualities most attractive and advantageous. The Three’s loyalty to home and loved ones is indisputable, but this is not seen in their dedication to domestic responsibilities, nor are they content with simple relaxation within the comforts of home. There will be little or no conflict between these partners on the question of home management. Sixes automatically take charge. As all Sixes are natural cooks the kitchen will be one of their favourite spots. The Three’s artistic creativity and the Six’s fine appreciation of the fine arts will combine in the beautification of the home. The ever present urge for self-expression, high ambition and extroverted qualities of authority and leadership keep the Three engaged in a lifestyle that is not domestic-focused. Although the Six is as capable as the Three in bringing in a good income, the stability and balance of the partnership is assured if the Three is the permanent income earner and the Six takes on the responsibilities of home. If both partners are in public life at the beginning of their partnership and the need arises for one to turn to domestic duties, the Six will do so with natural ease. The Three will be reluctant and unfulfilled if placed solely in this role.

Both partners are undeniably extroverted and socially oriented individuals. The active and receptive qualities of their controlling vibration are directly reflected in their distinctive social behaviour. Threes make their presence felt almost immediately by drawing attention to themselves and lifting the tempo of any social circle using their varied talents as natural entertainers. They can be solo artists who are able to hold the centre of attention. They are also most comfortable in the company of their peers. The Six is a gregarious individual who mixes easily with people of all age groups. They do not, however, actively seek the centre of attention, but instead are sooner or later given this position by others through the law of attraction. They are warm humanitarians, reliable confidants, and pleasant conversationalists. Threes and Sixes seldom compete with each other in their social life. The more or less separate courses they take ensure personal satisfaction and considerable social popularity for both partners. This will be seen in the Three as flamboyance, and in the Six as a calm and unruffled manner. They make a splendid combination as hosts and hostesses. They will be renowned for their hospitality. Some differences will be met with in their choice of guests, friends and acquaintances. The Six is conservative by nature and will place some restrictions on the type and number of guests, while the free and easy Three has an unconventional outlook that can cope with a greater variety of personality types. The Six will take pains to safeguard the home and family from uncontrolled intrusion, but the Three may not feel the need to do so. Their social outings too could lead to some friction when the Six desires to return home at a reasonable time and the Three insists on staying till the very end of the party. Community service will play a considerable part in the social life of the Six partner, but this will seldom be done at the expense of domestic responsibilities.

This is also a combination of two great talkers. The Three exhibits speed, sparkle and verbal dexterity, while the Six is less vocal and shows patience and prudence in speech, and a flair for relating a good story. The Three’s eagerness to put their points across makes them poor listeners. They swiftly follow up one point of view with another, and often interrupt the responses of other speakers. The Six is a patient listener who can set aside their ego and listen to what is being said. They may later argue an irrational point of view with dogged reasoning powers. These different methods of oral expression will cause inevitable outbursts of temper by the Three when they confront, and fail to break down the logical thought processes of the Six. At the same time, the atmosphere of harmony the Six strives to preserve may be disturbed by the self-opinionated views of the Three. However, both parties are gifted with a dry sense of humour and the pressure of many confrontations will be relieved when they use this wonderful gift. They are able to step back and laugh off their differences as their arguments do not usually hold malice, nor do they bear grudges. They are both open personalities with no hidden or mysterious sides to their characters.

While most of the Six’s leisure activities will be confined to home improvement, home entertainment and general relaxation and enjoyment of home comforts, the Three’s outgoing and active constitution will find a variety of interests outside home. Sport will be one of their main attractions. Sixes are not as energetic as their Three partners and their active participation in sport will be restricted to a less vigorous class. As performing artists and as creative artists, Threes will exhibit greater versatility. The Six, on the other hand has a deep appreciation of all forms of artistic expression and the talent for constructive evaluation and criticism. These partners can combine their talents very successfully in several branches of artistic expression. As they are personalities who enjoy companionship and their tastes are similar, they will remain supportive of each of other’s leisure activities. The culinary arts will certainly have a stronger attraction to the Six, while the Three will pay more attention to interior decoration. As mentioned earlier, social engagements will take up much of their time, and here again they make a very effective combination.

The financial aspect of the partnership will prove to be an area in which these partners are particularly poles apart. As a result, constant argument and money problems can be expected until the situation is finally taken under the control of the Six partner. Threes have expensive tastes and are always abreast of or ahead of fashion. Their lifestyle is varied and costly, and their spending habits are generous. Sixes are almost the opposite. They have homely tastes and look more towards comfort, durability and quality rather than the latest fashions. Their home-based lifestyle makes fewer demands on their finances. Their indulgence seldom extends beyond good food, domestic comforts and cultural activities. They are by no means ungenerous, but caution and purpose are exercised in their spending habits. They are level-leaded money managers and investors. The finances of this partnership will sooner or later be taken over by the Six, who will exercise strict control over expenditure and curb many of the Three’s spending habits.

The mating urge is by far the strongest force motivating the adult Six personality and marriage becomes a natural state. They take great pains to preserve the sanctity of their union. Extra marital affairs are out of character with this family oriented partner. The 6 vibration is influenced by Venus, the planet of love – love in its most comprehensive form. Three personalities, whose most urgent need is the assurance of love and devotion of partners, find all the comfort they seek in Six partners. The Six’s devotion creates emotional stability and self-confidence in the Three and ensures their loyalty. The sex lives of these partners can settle down into a very compatible state once the Three ceases to take the Six’s responses for granted. The Six personality is subject to moods and often these may turn to despondency despite their rational minds. These are periods during which the Six will depend on the gaiety of the Three along with their inspirational support, to lift them out of their doldrums and allay their anxieties. Sixes are also subject to possessiveness and jealousy in varying degrees. These negative qualities are present to the degree of positivity or negativity affecting the integral personality. All Sixes should avoid placing restrictions on the freedom of their Three partners, and especially avoid entertaining suspicion in regard to their movements. The friendly and flirtatious style of the Three personality may arouse unnecessary fears in the Six. If these precautions are taken, Threes and Sixes have the right chemistry to become friends as well as lovers.

Positive Threes and positive Sixes will be found amongst those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. When both partners fall into this category, clear-cut divisions of authority and responsibility will be established, as one will not tolerate interference by the other in their areas of responsibility and expertise. An enterprising and successful partnership is certain between these strong-willed personalities. If one partner is born in one of these months the authoritative role will be taken up by this partner and a successful partnership is likely. If both partners are born in months that do not contain the activator 1 vibration they will suffer from the lack of self-confidence. The partnership will be weakened by the need for proper direction and tenacity.

3RD AND 7TH BIRTHDAYS

Subjects of this particular set of odd number birthdays form an odd combination of personality types. Though the 3 and 7 vibrations are of the same polarity the temperaments of Threes and Sevens are poles apart. (Odd numbers symbolise the active or positive pole and even numbers the receptive or negative pole). The active energies of the 3 and 7 vibrations are manifested in opposite ways in almost every aspect of living. The only similarity that can be observed is that both these personalities are strong-willed and independent-minded individuals. This is especially so with Sevens of all sorts, but Threes who are negatively inclined lose much of their strength of will and self-sufficiency.

The 3 force is expended almost entirely on the mental plane. Consequently, Three personalities possess a lively imaginative faculty, intelligent and quick-witted minds that thrive on beauty, colour and accuracy. Their creativity is usually confined to the fine arts and entertainment. Support from other areas of their numerological chart is needed to give them the practicality possessed by physically oriented persons. If this is not found, they depend on down-to-earth partners for their mundane needs. They are not likely to receive this support willingly from a Seven partner. The 7 vibration is the third of the physical trio, but cannot be identified as a purely physical force as in the case of the 1 and 4. It has many unusual characteristics which are not usually found as a surface quality in physical vibrations, or in any other for that matter. There is a strong pull towards the non-physical element of life at some expense of their practical responsibilities. The seemingly contradictory or paradoxical nature of this physical plane vibration is seen in the attraction Seven personalities have for the metaphysical aspects of life. They do not, however, lose touch with the physical world but instead channel their physical energy into carefully selected areas such as the natural sciences, agriculture, horticulture and other activities closely associated with the natural environment.

Threes and Sevens are easily distinguished by the vibrant and youthful manner of the former and the detached poise of the latter. All Sevens have a distant and reflective look in their eyes which adds an aura of mystery. The eyes of the Three are alert and seem to be focused in several directions at the same time. Threes and Sevens occupy different realms of thought. The Three lives in a world of physical beauty. The Seven, while being alive to the beauties of the physical world, lives in a world of introspection. The extroverted Three experiences and enjoys life as they see it and endeavours to make their own contribution towards making it more enjoyable. Threes are generally happy and optimistic people who spread their good cheer around and insist on sharing with others the pleasure of the world. Introspective Sevens delve deep into the subtle aspects of life and keep their findings to themselves. They are serious individuals engrossed in their analytical thoughts with a reserve and aloofness that is often misunderstood by those who are not exceptionally well known to them. While self-expression is the bread and butter, so to speak, of the Three, the gathering of knowledge of the physical and non-physical spheres of life becomes the Seven’s motivating force. An intuitive knowledge that the physical world is manifested from forces within the non-physical world urges them on to seek an understanding of both worlds. The basic difference between these personalities is that the Three enjoys the world from an outer or objective viewpoint while the Seven uses an objective as well as a subjective viewpoint – with an emphasis on the subjective.

The qualities of the emotional planes are not found in either of these personalities, and this could be an inhibiting factor in their intimate relations. Both have distant comfort zones. They are not what one would regard as cuddly individuals. They are uneasy in physical closeness and very rarely indulge in communication by touch. The Seven has even greater difficulty than the Three in demonstrating emotion. They display a minimum of body language and oral expression, and their natural aloofness may often be misinterpreted as coldness. Threes are able to express their emotions through oral expression. They find it easier to put their outer experiences and inner feelings into words. Not only do Sevens find this difficult but they also consider such expression unnecessary.

These personalities, for entirely different reasons, are not attracted to domestic responsibilities. The Three performs at its best in a authoritative role in public life. Domesticity will be viewed by these extroverted and multi-talented people as being restricting. They need to work with people and to be given the freedom to set their own timetables. They become restless and inhibited when the routine of domesticity is imposed on them. Their high ambition and the need for self-expression are so strong that a home-bound lifestyle will be regarded as a form of self-sacrifice which they are not conditioned to make. Seven personalities are, by and large, neither leaders nor followers. They are relatively private people who prefer to work on their own. Their reserved nature rejects all forms of competition, unremitting ambition, the diverse company of a work scene and the general hustle and bustle of public life. Their talents are utilised on an individual basis in specialised work rather than in teamwork. Their innate student mentality dampens any enthusiasm for the more mundane tasks of domesticity. However, in the event of the need arising for one of these partners to remain at home the Seven will adjust to a domestic lifestyle with fewer direct or indirect consequences. They possess the capacity to use their new conditions to take up personal interests that will not conflict with their domestic duties.

Some of the widest differences in these personalities are seen in their social aspirations and conduct. All Threes seek social popularity. As they are vibrant without much effort most positive Threes do not need to exert much to gain popularity. A party could orbit around the entertaining Three personality. They take pride in their achievements and display a natural flair for holding the centre of attention. People feel uplifted in the jovial atmosphere created by them. Negative Threes, lacking self-confidence, create situations in order to attract the attention of others. Friendship is an essential factor in the lifestyle of all Threes. Younger Threes may be pulled by friends in all directions. Social popularity would be one of the lowest priorities in the Seven’s outlook of life. They do not seek to be entertained nor are they aware of any need to show off their accomplishments to an admiring audience, something which the Three finds quite irresistible. In the Three’s psychological makeup there is a dependency on social interaction and the need for self-expression. Self-possessed Sevens do not have this dependency. Few personalities are more un-responsive and antipathetic to the Three’s social habits than the Seven. The strength of the Seven lies in their capacity to generate their pleasures from within themselves. Most Sevens make every effort to avoid noisy crowds. They are not anti-social people but their love of solitude, their own company and natural surroundings is greater than their fondness for company. The exceptions they make will be with those they consider to be on their own wavelength. A factor that deters Sevens from dropping into place in diverse company is their ability to penetrate the facades put on by most people. Once this occurs they find it intolerable to remain in the company of these people. Threes do not think of this as they are too busy maintaining a front of their own. This is especially the case with negative Threes. Sevens are very selective of the company they keep and seldom make an effort to cultivate new friendships. Nor do others make strenuous efforts to get to know a Seven. They are often discouraged by an aura of inapproachability around the Seven. Threes and Sevens are not personality types who can impose their will upon each other, and not being aggressive types they do not resort to quarrelling. They settle their different social attitudes by going their separate ways. Wiser partners will benefit by meeting each other half-way. The slowing down of the Three’s pace through the influence of the Seven will give this partner the opportunity for greater concentration and appreciation of a carefully selected circle of friends. The serious minded Seven, in turn, will have the opportunity, not only to live more abundantly and extract more enjoyment out of selected company, but also to give out to others some of the knowledge they have acquired through their studies. As mentioned earlier Sevens have an unfortunate habit of keeping their knowledge to themselves. A good Three partner has the capacity to bring laughter and gaiety into the life of the Seven and relieve them of their natural self-restraint. Threes need to be careful how they handle a Seven partner. Although Seven’s have a naturally studious nature they choose self-study and resent being taught by others. They are also bad teachers unless they do so professionally at tertiary levels.

The position of these personalities at opposite poles is seen once again in their different styles of communication. The Three is one of the most talkative of all personality types with a rich voice and a fluency with words. The Seven is clearly the most taciturn personality that can be found. They are soft spoken and use words as a miser uses money. While the Seven reduces to a few well chosen words with the narration of an interesting incident or their opinion on any contentious issue, the Three will elaborate, embroider and flow into a stream of verbiage. Sevens speak only when they have something to say and place great value on the intervals of silence. With a talkative Three partner they will have little chance of enjoying these much valued periods. Sevens are undoubtedly poor conversationalists. It is always difficult to keep up a flow of talk with a Seven partner or friend. Communication in a Three/ Seven partnership will not be easy. Threes insist on sharing their thoughts but Sevens find no need to do so and resent intrusion during their contemplative periods. Threes talk freely about themselves while Sevens are reticent or even secretive of their personal affairs.

The Seven’s choice of leisure activity will reflect their love of solitude, natural surroundings and a desire to escape from human contact. Solitary outdoor hobbies such as gardening, fishing, cycling, walking and similar indoor hobbies such as the collection of antiquarian objects and the collection and study of books relating to historical, scientific, esoteric and arcane matters will be preferred by most Sevens. The Three needs company in all their social activity. They are also oriented towards new and modernistic interests while the Seven has a passion for the past and the desire to understand the present as a consequence of the past. The Seven may find the Three’s presence disturbing and the Three may find the Seven’s restricting. The Seven may also consider the Three’s socially oriented pastimes, such as team sport, club life, frequent parties and other social activities as superficial, while the extroverted Three cannot be blamed if they fail to understand the semi-recluse or reserved ways of a Seven – especially a strong Seven personality.

Differences of opinion are certain to arise in the management of their finances. The Seven has a highly responsible attitude towards money, as they do in all other matters. Most Threes adapt a carefree manner towards expenditure. Although these personalities have the capacity to make money they have no attachment to it and therefore spend it as quickly as it comes in. Sevens are not attached to money either, for its own sake, but are selective in their spending habits. Their personal needs are much less than those of the Three and they are able to undergo hardship when there is need to curtail expenditure. For the financial stability of this partnership the budget should be firmly in the control of the Seven.

Sevens are loyal and devoted partners whose love arises from deeper attractions than physical appearance. Their self-possessed and reserved manner usually obscures the depth of their love. The fact that they do not like being fussed over, they see no need to pamper their loved ones, adding to some of their problems with a Three partner. They hold back their true feelings and do not readily give themselves emotionally. They are quite incapable of generating emotions they do not feel at any particular time, or towards a particular individual. Many Sevens find outlets for their emotions in music, art, poetry or religion. Sex to a Seven is reserved for a special mood, place and time. An improper moment or setting will inhibit their desires. They make excellent lovers, but only with understanding and self-controlled partners. They are also possessive partners who strive to maintain high standards of conduct, and expect similar responses from their loved ones. Three personalities often do not meet these needs. Despite their cleverness in acquiring power over people, Threes have an inner need for the admiration, indulgence and re-assurance of those around them. This is a vulnerable aspect of the Three. Self-possessed Sevens do not have this problem as their own nature is to decline credit for their talents and feel embarrassed by compliments paid to them. Sexual activity of the Three is more frequent and much less fastidious than the Seven and many Three partners will have difficulty accommodating to the special conditions needed by Sevens for enjoyment of sex.

It is unlikely that positive Threes and positive Sevens will get together. These are personalities born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. However, if they do come together by the working of some unusual principle of selection, the partnership can survive only on strictly equalitarian terms. Any early attempts by one to take charge of the life of the other will inevitably fail. The natural leadership qualities of the Three will not have any power over the individualistic strength of the Seven. The Seven will not bother to take charge of the Three but will insist that their own way of life is not interfered with. If the Three partner alone is born in one of these months, the position will be very much the same, but if this position is in reverse, the Seven will certainly take charge of all decisions. Similarly, if both partners are born outside these months, the Seven will display greater strength of purpose and proper direction. The 7 vibration is the only other force with the inner strength and self-sufficiency of the activator 1 vibration.

3RD AND 8TH BIRTHDAYS

The closeness of the numbers 3 and 8 to the opposite ends of the single digit spectrum – 1 to 9 – reveal many significant contrasts in the characteristics of the vibrations they symbolise. Differences also arise, not only from the active polarity of the 3 and the receptive polarity of the 8, but also from the 3’s position on the mental plane and the 8’s position on the emotional plane.

At one end of the spectrum the 3 vibration, as the offspring of the 1 and 2, represents all the qualities of youth such as clear and alert mental faculties, imagination, self-expression enthusiasm, curiosity, restlessness, optimism, friendship, romance, gaiety, generosity, ambition and self-centredness. At the other end, the spiralling movement of earlier vibrations has culminated in a condition of maturity symbolised by the 8. At this stage the distinguishing features of the vibration are authority, power, practical knowledge, strength of purpose, deliberation, dependability, sound judgment, broad horizons and dedication to work and success.

People of opposite polarities are usually attracted to each other for the fulfilment they receive from the exchange of equivalent personal qualities. Threes and Eights may prove an exception to this general rule as the clear differences between their integral personalities create, on the contrary, conflicting modes of thought and an inevitable distance between them. Not only are they not constituted to give what each one expects of the other, but the things they are prepared to contribute and the manner in which they will be contributed will not be acceptable to either. In the exceptional situation where Threes and Eights have formed a relationship for reasons other than mutual respect of their potential, many fundamental personality adjustments will be needed before some measure of success is achieved. The problem here is that neither party will allow themselves to be conditioned by circumstances. As they are naturally constituted to give orders they resent receiving them and react adversely when their decisions are challenged. Both partners are capable of reacting to aggression with aggression. One of the first obstacles they will face in any sort of association will be adjustment of their authoritative manner. Equal partnerships will lead to frequent confrontation and subordinate roles will be destructive of their individuality.

Threes make their decisions spontaneously while Eights use deliberation and sound judgment. Threes will optimistically plunge headlong into new schemes while Eights make use of past experience and practical knowledge. Threes live highly active and many sided lives that call for several quick decisions in the course of their daily lives, many of which will not find favour with the sedate Eight partner. The Eight’s lifestyle is a concentration on a few major issues and their decisions follow the same lines. The Three’s leadership qualities cannot be questioned, but in comparison with an Eight, they fall short in system, organisation and financial acumen. Eights are leaders, organisers and administrators par excellence. They have a natural tendency to manage the lives of people, both in private and public life. Threes who attempt the formidable task of ruling an Eight partner are likely to be as unsuccessful as an Eight who tries to manage the high spirited Three.

The 8 vibration represents authority on a scale higher than that represented by any other vibration in the single digit range. In addition, subjects of this vibration pay exclusive attention to material prosperity. They enjoy taking on responsibility and are equipped to meet with and overcome all forms of competition and opposition. In fact, they perform at their best in the face of opposition. While the Three personality measures life in terms of its varied richness and opportunities available in many directions for self-expression, Eights measure life in terms of material wealth, power and success. They remain within the established order of society while Threes are prepared to experiment along unconventional lines. The natural drive of both personalities, if followed, will be at the expense of domestic life. Domestic leanings are not found in either. Both are irresistibly drawn by their ambitions to public life. Eights are extraordinarily dedicated and emotionally involved workers who can easily become enmeshed in their careers or business interests. They expect their partners to take up all domestic responsibilities while they pursue their vocations. Threes harbour the same expectations. Not only are they true careerists but their dependence on social activity and social popularity takes up an extraordinary amount of their time. Both partners are loyal and family proud individuals but their problems will always be the lack of time for personal involvement in family life. When prevented from entering world affairs these personalities, through frustration, will resort to dictatorial attitudes within the home.

Threes and Eights will have difficulty bridging a gap between their different social attitudes. They are both extroverts who make friends easily, but differences are seen in the amount of time they allow themselves for social pleasures. Threes can bring about a balance between work and social life, but the Eight’s absorption in work usually results in a lop-sided lifestyle. Threes need social activity for fulfilment and have no hesitation in involving themselves in several directions that are unrelated to their public life. Eights find fulfilment in business achievement and often neglect their social obligations. As a result of these different attitudes the Three partner gains a host of friends and acquaintances from every level of society while the Eight is often too busy to enjoy the warmth of a close friendship. They can be helped by their Three partners not only to meet their social obligations but also to relax in refreshing company that is unrelated to their public life.

The different ways Threes and Eights express themselves orally are sure to come into collision sooner or later. The artistry of the Three personality is clearly reflected in their speech. Not only do they acquire an extended vocabulary which they use with consummate skill, but their verbal effectiveness is enhanced by quick wit, repartee and sarcasm. Lacking the sparkle, imagination and verbal dexterity of the Three, Eight personalities find themselves at a disadvantage in any form of dialogue with this partner. Although controlled by an emotional vibration, Eights have the added difficulty of not being able to adequately express their emotions. In contrast to the fluency and flowery language used by the Three, the Eight’s speech is measured, direct and business-like. Their opinions are delivered after much forethought and with authoritative body language. Their gestures of command often irritate the independent Three. Their broader perspectives enable them to take objective views of things when necessary; whereas Threes seldom emerge from ego-centred modes of thought. Both personalities express their opinions openly and without fear of rejection or contradiction. Eights have a higher degree of consistency in their views and take a firm stand upholding these views. Threes will maintain a point of view for the love of discourse and more often than not as a defence of their ego and not necessarily for the validity of their opinions.

Neither of these personalities have a great need for sharing their leisure time. They will be more inclined to indulge in personal interests without claiming support and companionship from each other. Three personalities do not allow domestic or public responsibilities to interfere or overlap their hobbies or personal pleasures. Following their socially oriented and artistic temperaments they take advantage of the wide range of attractions open to them for leisure time activity. As Eights do not have the same knack of separating their public responsibilities from their personal interests, their dedication and enthusiasm for work may often override attention not only to family affairs but also to personal outlets for relaxation. They could easily fall into the habit of making work their hobby, and this is too often done at the expense of personal health and family togetherness. Eights, who habitually bring home tales of their work achievements and problems, will surely succeed in damaging the fragile relationship they may have with a lively Three partner. As in their social life, they should avail themselves of the opportunities provided by the Three to involve themselves in pastimes that are unrelated to their public life. One such area which Eight’s invariably find themselves in is sport and sport administration. They are fiercely competitive professionals who contribute their business, administrative and coaching talents to any game once their playing days are over. Threes are amateur sportsmen and sportswomen who play for the love of the game and the social life associated with sport.

All Eight personalities are value and cost conscious individuals who drive hard bargains in business matters. Though the 8 represents material prosperity the destiny of Eight personalities does not offer an easy road to success. Their wealth is acquired through personal effort and along the way they acquire a good all-round sense of values. Despite being firm and business-like in all their financial dealings they can be generous and kind when their emotions are touched. Unlike many ego-centred persons Eights have a keen perception for the problems of others, and can be depended upon to rescue a partner or family member who has fallen into unavoidable financial or other difficulties. Three personalities who have generous spending habits, expensive tastes and a careless sense of values or bargaining skills will depend on the Eight partner’s good money sense to establish financial stability.

Many incompatible features in their intimate relations and attitudes towards sex will soon become evident and inevitably lead to much misunderstanding. The Three needs to maintain their romantic involvement with their partners. Though most Threes are able to take charge of their lives in most respects, they are also emotionally insecure. They are dependent on their partners for love and attention. They do not reserve a special time or mood for endearment, but constantly give out their love and attention and seek excitement in their relationship. Unless they receive similar responses from their partners they soon tire and turn away to someone who could give them the emotional re-enforcement and romantic stimulation they look for. Eight partners are too business-like and methodical to cater to these needs. Despite their emotionally based personality structures they are unromantic lovers. The busy life they lead, their unimaginative approaches and the lack of fluency in their speech inhibit romantic expression of their love. As they find little time for dalliance, their love is shown by loyalty and dedication to the welfare of the family. Although their emotional and sexual needs are no less than those of the Three, they are not allowed to interfere or become mixed up with their public life. An Eight partner has a set time for sex and becomes quite disturbed with a partner who demands sex and other personal attentions at inconvenient times. Three’s are likely to do this and both will suffer.

Positive Threes and Eights will be those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. These partners will have the most difficulty in controlling one another or in arriving at some form of compromise. If one partner is born in one of these months the situation will be easier as this partner will take over the decision making role. The other will lack the strength to contest the decisions of this partner. If both partners are born outside these months, it is likely that the Eight will play a stronger role in the management of their lives.

3RD AND 9TH BIRTHDAYS

The mental plane figures conspicuously in this combination of birthdays, and so does the positive or active polarity symbolised by odd numbers, as opposed to the negative or receptive polarity represented by even numbers. (The words positive and negative are used in this context to denote expenditure of energy and storage of energy respectively). The digits 3 and 9 represent the two active vibrations on the mental plane. The former as a one-dimensional force symbolising the effervescence of youth and the latter, as a multi-dimensional force formed from the blending of all the forces represented by the numbers 1 to 8. These differences in dimension are reflected in the personal or self-conscious orientation of the Three personality and the largely impersonal and world-conscious orientation of the Nine. An assessment of the degree of compatibility in a relationship between these personalities will necessitate the consideration on the one hand of the many common features they derive from their position on the mental plane, and on the other hand, the many differences resulting from their personal and impersonal attitudes. It may be noted, however, that many younger Nines possess ego-centred ways that are indistinguishable from the Three. But unlike the Three who remains ego-centred, the Nine outgrows this stage and takes on high ideals and breadth of vision. In the process of emerging out of themselves Nines suffer many fluctuations in mood. They could be cold, indifferent and withdrawn, and warm, generous and understanding, and for the most part suffer from poor self-esteem. Threes, who do not experience these complications, may face real difficulties understanding their Nine partners at this critical stage.

These are extroverted personalities who at all times give precedence to human interaction over the pursuit of material possessions. The Three is happiest in conditions that provide freedom of expression and good fellowship and entertainment. The Nine is happiest in an environment that offers unlimited scope for cultural and spiritual expansion. While Threes are known for their friendliness and the contribution they make towards the joys of living, Nines are known not only for these qualities but also for their appreciation of human nature and sympathetic outlook on life. As the comprehensive 9 vibration helps the Nine personality overcome ego-centredness their thoughts and actions cover far wider horizons. Threes seldom outgrow their need for popular acclamation, and the adulation and attention of their partners. Younger Nines may have the same problem, but those who are more mature overcome their craving to be appreciated when they sublimate many personal demands and desires as they turn towards a wider spectrum of life. A sympathetic touch with life enables them to get in tune with those around them. They are sensitive to the wants and suffering of others, irrespective of relationship. They have no fear of losing their individuality while being absorbed in broader issues. Indeed their attitudes to life enhance their chances of expanding their personalities. The self-consciousness of the Three stands out against the world-consciousness of the Nine, and some conflict may be expected between these different attitudes. In the melodrama of life the mature Nine personality looms a little larger than the youthful Three and is often able to hold a charismatic influence of a Three partner.

The Nine’s overall awareness creates a tendency towards indecision which is contrary to the Three’s spontaneous ways. While the Nine may delay constructive action the Three is inclined to flit from one project to another before seeing the completion or enjoying the fruits of the previous one. All Nines hold petty and narrow-minded actions of people they hold in contempt, and Three personalities, especially those who are negative, are inclined towards over emphasis on accuracy and one-eyed vision. However, a quality both personalities have in common is the ability to recover from setbacks, whether financial or otherwise, and build up their lives in new directions.

Unless supported by practical vibrations in other facets of their integral personalities, these partners cannot depend on each other for support in practical issues. This position is worsened by their tendency to entertain many impractical ideas. They are not attracted to a domestic way of life. Though both are versatile individuals, qualities associated with domesticity, such as routine, timetables, budgeting, good planning, housekeeping, cooking on a daily routine and other home oriented pleasures are not among those that hold their interest. Despite the pleasures and rewards of domesticity, this will be regarded as a humdrum way of life. The world of public life holds far greater fascination to them. Though the attractions of public life far outweigh the attractions of domesticity both partners are capable of managing a home in their own exuberant ways, but self-fulfilment will not be achieved through this. One will not be able to persuade the other to willingly take up a greater share of domestic duties. These are multi-talented and career oriented persons who find an extensive range of opportunity in their working life and many acquire qualifications in more than one profession. They are not usually successful in running their own businesses as the 3 and 9 vibrations do not contain a sound business sense.

Their mutual fondness for social life stands out in sharp contrast to their mutual indifference to domestic life. Interaction with people means more to both than devotion to a particular materialistic pursuit. Their social connections will not be limited to a narrow field of friends and acquaintances; nor will they find any need to cultivate separate friendships. The principle of gravitation which draws like to like, not only keeps the Three and Nine together on a foundation of friendship, but also attracts people of similar tastes and predilections. As in other aspects of life, the Three’s social horizons are more bounded in comparison with the Nine, although they are quite extensive in comparison with most other personality types. While the Three’s social life may be confined to self-expression in all forms of entertainment, the Nines will be extended into social service, church and charitable organisations and similar outlets. This should not cause any conflict between these partners, but, on the contrary, serve to lift the Three nearer to the Nine’s altruistic attitudes. These are individuals with the capacity to laugh and joke together. Their hearty sense of humour, their generosity and hospitality combine to increase their social popularity. The combination of jauntiness in the carriage of the Three and dignity in that of the Nine makes them a captivating couple. Others may observe that some of the Three’s motives may be self-promoting but the partnership itself will be generally free from self-seeking or mercenary inducements.

Threes and Nines are among the most verbally gifted people with the potential to develop into eloquent speakers. Both have speaking voices of high quality. The Three’s speech has sensuality and animation while the Nine’s displays sensuality and elegance. The Three will emerge as the more talkative partner, whose desire to be heard will always exceed willingness to listen. Nines are prepared to listen and thereafter concentrate on the value and wisdom of what they have to say. These different levels of tolerance will be observed in their frequent verbal contests when the Three makes definite assertions and insists on yes or no answers, or having the last word. Nines respond by delaying their decisions or withholding judgment.

These are not personality types who expect or need to spend their leisure in each other’s company. They could, without suffering emotional hurt or damage to their relationship, take up separate interests. However, a division of interests or different hobbies will be exceptional in a Three/Nine combination. Having the capacity to manoeuvre with such agility and dexterity on the mental plans with a combination of modern tastes and similar skills, they take up shared pastimes. Among several directions in which they are likely to succeed as a talented force, the principal ones will be in all forms of music and dancing, the theatre, the fine arts, fashion design and modelling, entertainment, public speaking, sport, travel and other cultural pursuits. In addition, the Nine may extend into charitable, religious and humanitarian organisations. Nines also have a stronger pull towards spiritual unfolding, and may spend some personal time in private study and contemplation.

Neither of these partners will contribute to the efficient management of the financial side of the partnership. However, though both are inclined to spend generously, and often let expenses barely match or exceed income; they are also able to speedily recoup their losses or re-establish their financial position. Their natural talents attract the means not only to acquire fame but also ensure a steady inflow of money. Their attachment will always be much more to their talents rather than to the funds they bring in. Enjoyment of life is not dependent on financial security. Their optimistic outlook on life and non-attachment to money prevents them from quarrelling over money matters. Nines will seldom object to the Three’s expensive tastes nor will the Three resent the Nine’s generosity to others, especially when their emotions and sympathies are aroused. Both partners can be prevailed upon to part with their money. The Three does so not only from a need to keep up with their love of everything that is modern but also as an ego-boosting opportunity. The Nine’s great depth of wisdom does not cover the mercenary side of life. They could spend impulsively, often to their own disadvantage and that of the partnership.

An advantage enjoyed by these partners is that neither of them is a clinging type. They are able to give each other freedom of movement and yet nourish their love and trust. No doubt, the Three will expect more attention from the Nine than the Nine would from the Three. The Nine will be happy to indulge the Three’s whims to a reasonable extent as long as their own freedom is not restricted. These are personalities who fall in love with great intensity and use their powerful imaginative faculties to maintain a romantic relationship. It is most unlikely that their lifestyle will grow stale through settled habits and self-restrictions based on fears for the future. These are also sexually active partners who combine sex and romance throughout their lives together. Though both partners are deeply sentimental individuals their emotions are seldom openly demonstrated as do emotionally oriented partners. Their emotions find release in the mental plane through their imaginative faculty.

The most successful partnerships will be formed by Threes and Nines who are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. These are positive personalities who are able to stand on their own feet and make an equal contribution to the partnership. If only one partner is born in the one of these months, the leadership and decision making role will be taken up by this partner. If both are born outside these months, there will be several difficulties in establishing a clear direction in their lifestyles.

3RD AND 10TH BIRTHDAYS

As the cipher 0 does not symbolise particular characteristics, the 10th day is in effect a single digit birthday. The relationship between persons born on the 3rd and 10th will be very much the same as that between those born on the 3rd and 1st. The chapter relating to the latter combination should be consulted. However, two significant facts should be kept in mind when comparing Three and Ten personalities. Firstly, although the Zero does not contain intrinsic qualities it has a definite tendency to enhance the qualities of the single digit it is attached to. For example, an essentially positive One personality is made stronger and an essentially negative One personality is made weaker. Secondly, the positive or negative nature of a single digit birthday is largely conditioned by the vibration of the birth month. The repetition of the same number or vibration in the birth month overloads the personality with the qualities of the single digit, and this over emphasis brings out the negative aspects of the vibration. In other single digit birthdays, except the 1st and 10th, the absence of the activator 1 vibration in the birth month results in a lack of self-confidence and self-esteem.

In regard to the 3rd and 10th birthdays several combinations can be formed with varying chances of success. When both partners are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months they will constantly safeguard their individuality. The spirit of cooperation will be virtually unknown to both. While the Three will be flexible and versatile, the One (10th) will be rigid and confined to specialisation in a set direction. Rivalry and conflict can be expected. The leadership role will never be settled. The situation will be similar if both are born in the 4th or 7th months, except for the role of leader which will eventually be taken up by the One(10th). The Three’s confidence will be weakened by the loss of the 1 vibration in the birth month, but the practical nature of the 4 and 7 vibrations will make the versatile Three a most valuable partner.

When both partners are born in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th or 9th months the One will doubtlessly be the stronger and more stable partner. The vibration of the birth month will give the One versatility and flexibility not found in the birthday. Threes will lose their practicality and will be either emotionally or mentally oriented. Their loss of practicality will lead to several problems with the down-to-earth One partner. They will also be hard to control as their sense of direction and self-discipline will be impaired and their many talents may be scattered in all directions.

3RD AND 11TH BIRTHDAYS

The interplay between straightforward characteristics of the 3 vibration and the complicated nature of the master vibration 11 will be the most significant feature arising from this birthday combination. The 3 vibration symbolises all that is young, lusty, exciting, enterprising, optimistic and adventuresome in life. Three personalities operate exclusively on the mental plane displaying a curious mixture of extroversion and egocentricity. They are active participants in life’s melodrama having the world revolving around their egos. As all Three’s call attention to themselves they are not found among followers and onlookers, or among those who choose semi-recluse or isolated lifestyles. A Three lighthouse keeper may be impossible to find. They are creative thinkers who are usually a step ahead in all aspects of modernisation. People born on the 11th day may function to the full power of the master vibration 11, or on the greatly reduced speed of the basic 2 vibration. In reality, most fluctuate consciously and unconsciously, between the high frequencies of the 11 and the lower frequencies of the 2. This frequent movement between the rarefied and impersonal atmosphere of the 11 and the slower personal state of the 2 becomes the major cause of the Eleven’s problems with self-understanding and the early establishment of a clear direction in life. It may also become the cause of much misunderstanding in their relationship with others, particularly with ego-centred Three personalities who are usually too wrapped up in their need for expressing themselves in many directions to exercise patience and understanding of the Eleven’s unpredictable ways. The difficult task of positioning a particular Eleven will have to be left to the personal knowledge of the individual. The chapters relating to 1st and 3rd and 2nd and 3rd birthdays should be read in conjunction with the present one to gain a better understanding of an Eleven/Two personalities relationship with a Three. An Eleven personality is never easy to classify or characterise and a compatibility assessment presents many uncertainties. When an Eleven personality is being considered as a Two it is important to note that he or she will not be the standard or original Two, but a Two formed by a pair of 1 vibrations. Many positive features of the 1 vibration will be found in the foreground of the personality and the best features of the 2 at fundamental levels. Although the condition will be more the exception than the rule, this chapter is written on the basis of the Eleven motivating to the full strength of the master vibration.

Although the 3 vibration is representative of the mind and the 11 is a significant step higher representing spirit, Three and Eleven personalities have several characteristics in common. Some of these similarities will have a binding effect on a relationship while others may not be conducive to the stability of a partnership in the practical side of life. The Eleven’s problem in establishing proper personal direction is also shared by the Three. For entirely different reasons each personality will take time to take charge of their lives before they are ready to assume the responsibilities of a partnership. Both will attempt to change their environment instead of working upon themselves. A mental restlessness and active involvement in the phenomenal world drives the Three in several directions and specialisation in a particular field is prevented or delayed. A spiritual restlessness, often unknown to younger Elevens, and absorption in idealism and abstract matters prevents the Eleven personality from concentrating sufficiently on mundane matters. The mind of the Three is imaginative while that of the Eleven is inspirational. Ambition for power, fame and enjoyment of physical and aesthetic pleasures characteristic of the Three have evolved into aspirations for ethical and spiritual development in the Eleven. Absorption in their own points of view stops these partners from seeing the need to exchange opinions. Elevens, especially, have difficulty coping with people who cannot share their elevated thoughts. Threes, who are supported by universal vibrations in other areas of their make-up, are able to do so. However, they will not remain consistently on the altruistic levels of the Eleven.

Both partners are modern and unconventional in their outlook on life. They are peacemakers in the world of artistic creativity. The talents of the creative artist inherent in both are outwardly displayed in the original styles they adapt in their attire and decoration of their homes. The urge to express their artistic talents will form common ground for much mutual fulfilment in an otherwise tentative relationship. The imagination of the Three and the inspiration of the Eleven can merge into an exceptionally productive combination. The inventive talents of the Eleven may exceed those of the Three but the Three’s capacity to obtain full enjoyment of their creations will exceed that of the Eleven. The Eleven’s idealism places greater emphasis on the needs of others than on their own pleasures. Threes constantly change their tastes and tire of their possessions, which they readily give away and replace with new ones. Eleven’s non-attached use of their possessions releases them from material anxieties and for a constant turnover of goods. They cling to their ideals as strongly as materially oriented persons cling to their possessions. Both Threes and Elevens are generous and spontaneous givers. Threes do so for the self-satisfaction they gain from the act of giving and the gratitude they may receive in return. The Eleven’s intuition enables them to see and feel the needs of others and they are able to give with a sense of detachment that does not expect a return in any form. There is, however, a need for Elevens to integrate their idealism with the reality of living, especially when allied to generous Three partners.

The ups and downs of life produce similar reactions in these personalities. Good fortune is accepted with poise and grace, and more importantly, misfortune is handled with optimism and courage. Neither partner is subject to melancholy or depressing fantasies. Excessive demonstration of joy or sorrow is seldom seen as mind has control over all their actions and reactions. The ambitions and aspirations of both personalities extend far beyond the day-to-day responsibilities of domesticity and a lifestyle of a quiet suburban neighbourhood or country life. They are generally poor organisers and the regularity and disciplines required for efficient home-keeping will be regarded as forms of personal restriction. For aesthetic and creative satisfaction they will look outside the home. Freedom of self-expression is needed by both in order to function to their full potential. Their rights to pursue chosen careers as well as involve themselves in social and cultural organisations will be zealously guarded. Their domestic situation will be disorganised unless one or both are influenced by domestic vibrations such as the 2, 4 or 6 in other facets of their integral personalities.

As extroverted personalities, who are motivated to their best by company, their social life will be extensive and fulfilling. Threes usually conceal a serious side of their personality and display their capacity for good humour, fun and frivolity. They obtain more pleasure out of life as they do not ponder over abstract and mystical matters as most Elevens are wont to do. They will emerge as the more flexible, entertaining and socially popular partners with a wider range of friends and acquaintances. The lighter side of the Eleven’s nature is often obscured by the seriousness they attach to their visions, ideals and zeal for social and moral reform. They are much more selective of the company they keep and could be intolerant of the Three’s indiscriminate choice of company. The Three, on the other hand, could be suspicious and cynical of the company chosen by the Eleven in pursuit of their spiritual and altruistic interests. While the Three is open-minded and thoroughly modern in worldly matters they are somewhat conservative and even fearful of esoteric studies in the spiritual realm. They are more comfortable following the precepts of orthodoxy. Threes and Elevens will not censor their behaviour to conform to the mores of a group; nor are they dependent upon each other for support in their social roles. There are able to hold their own as the gift of speech, among other qualities, helps them take charge of most situations. Both partners are inclined to talk too much and often interrupt each other. Threes talk on all subjects but Elevens are carried away only when they are on to their favourite topics. Both parties have an irresistible desire to make themselves heard and often steal attention from each other. As a consequence of their grandstanding and dogmatic manner they are impatient and un-sympathetic listeners. Threes will insist on the Elevens giving ear to their opinions on worldly matters and Elevens, with even stronger insistence, will attempt to impose their non-worldly ideals upon the Three. The talkative Three, who is normally able to out-talk most other personality’s types, will discover a formidable opponent in an Eleven partner. However, the chances are that they will ignore each other’s views rather than argue and enter into conflict.

The same preferences shown in social life will be reflected in their hobbies and other leisure activities. Threes will be engaged in all forms of music and entertainment, painting, sculpture, poetry and song, and all forms of sport that does not involve body contact. Elevens will associate with their Three partners in all these activities, and their contribution, especially in music and painting, may be more outstanding than those of the Three. However, as Elevens are influenced by the vibration spirit, they will also extend themselves into metaphysical studies and practices. Many Elevens are found among mediums, psychics, astrologers, philosophers, evangelists and religious reformers. A few positive Threes may show tentative interests in these matters but the majority will view them with suspicion or indifference.

Neither of these personalities has much attachment to money for its own sake. Threes are generous and self-indulgent spenders who find themselves in constant need of funds. Elevens too spend freely, but unlike the Three who spend mostly on themselves, their money may be used to help many of the causes they support. These partners, being non-materialistic and non-mercenary in their outlook, as well as being optimistic types, are usually able to cope with each other’s spending habits. Both will be found weak in self-discipline when the need arises for curtailment of expenditure. Problems are certain to arise when money has to be found for purposes other than their personal needs.

There are people to whom personal relationships and share experiences mean less than their devotion to public duties or to some particular cause or ideal. In varying degrees Elevens may fall easily into this category. The extent to which they give more attention to their personal pursuits and less to their intimate lives is the extent they wil jeopardise their relationship with a Three partner. Though Threes are independent in all aspects of life and enjoy being the one in control, they need constant assurance of the love of their partners and expect to be taken care of in a variety of ways. Love in all its personal aspects forms the essence of this romantic individual’s wellbeing. Their self-confidence can be soon impaired with the loss of the support system of their loved ones. Elevens, on the other hand are emotionally independent and too often emotionally inaccessible. They may have real difficulty observing and satisfying the emotional needs of a Three partner.

Elevens who are born in the 1st, 11th and 10th months are less likely to be motivated by the power of the master vibration. The strength of the 1 vibration in the birthday as well as the birth month will confine them to the physical plane and a pragmatic approach to life. A partnership between a Three and these practical Elevens offers the best chances of success. Elevens born in the other months could be elevated to the rarefied atmosphere of the master vibration. These Elevens are often unreasonably intolerant of partners who are not of the same vibratory rate as themselves. Average Threes will not measure up to their high standards.

3RD AND 12TH BIRTHDAYS

Both birthdays produce Three personalities. The former is a straightforward Three, and the latter a multi-faceted Three personality. The straightforward Three needs little analysis as the 3 vibration, with its positive and negative features, governs the overall personality. No doubt, the vibrations of the birth month influence the 3 characteristics in positive or negative ways. Threes born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are endowed with almost all the positive qualities of the 3 vibration. Those born in the 3rd month are overloaded with 3 qualities which invariably take on negative trends. Those born in other months suffer from poor self-esteem as they are unsupported by the activator 1 vibration in the formative areas of the birthday and the influential area of the birth month. As a result, they are required to make a strenuous effort to live up to the full potential of the 3 vibration. In an assessment of a particular Three/Twelve relationship, the type of Three personality should be determined and taken into consideration as each of these Three types will form a different type of relationship with a Twelve – or for that matter, with any other personality. Twelves are not divided in this way as they are inherently positive characters. Negative features can enter only through adverse environmental conditioning. As the birthday contains the activator 1 vibration which is essential to ensure positivity, they do not depend on the birth month for support, nor will the repetition of birthday vibrations in the birth month cause negativity. Indeed repetition will serve to strengthen the integral personality. The Twelve/Three personality is a fine blend of the 1, 2 and 3 vibrations. The positivity of the 1 is retained without the accompanying aggressiveness of the plain 1. The charm of the 2 is not lost though shyness is overcome, and the extroversion of the 3 is not dependent on the admiration and solicitude which the plain 3 seeks from others. What is retained, however, is the quality of egocentricity as the 1, 2, and 3 vibrations cover the full egocentric range.

A Three/Twelve relationship gives rise to the rather trying situation of interaction between a pair of egocentric personalities. As the world revolves around their egos, they cannot easily emerge from their self-centred locations to view the world from an objective or impersonal viewpoint. The extent to which they succeed in doing so will be an important factor governing the success or failure of their relationship. Another essential point to be considered is the Three’s almost exclusive operation on the mental plane, and the Twelve’s smooth passage through the physical (1), emotional (2), and mental (3) planes. While the Three’s versatility is confined to mental creativity and personality expression through mental channels, the Twelve’s initiative and identity cover practical application, emotional expression, as well as mental agility. In a Three/Twelve partnership the chances are that the Twelve partner will loom a little larger in most aspects of life.

A contest for the authoritative and decision making role is certain to take place, with the Twelve in the medium or long term, emerging as the stronger character. The 1 vibration acts as a pilot for the Twelve personality, equipping them with willpower and a high degree of consistency and persistence in their behaviour. At the same time the mellowing influence of the 2 vibration not only moderates any autocratic tendencies, but also replaces them with the capacity to negotiate rather than dictate. The combined influence of the 1 and 2 vibrations also gives them the ability to negotiate rather than compromise. The Twelve has the capability to settle in a partnership without loss of individuality and without encroaching on the individuality of a partner. Three personalities, who are not as favoured with balancing characteristics, often adapt a ‘do it my way or I won’t love you’ attitude. In a straight confrontation with a Twelve, they will eventually be forced into submissive reactions and a change from their ‘me versus you’ stance to an ‘us’ mode of thinking.

Both partners are essentially career-minded people, and some degree of conflict between their occupational roles and family roles may be expected. The Three’s lack of practicality will be a problem that will affect their domestic arrangements. Also, most Threes cannot be depended upon to conform to the regularity and self-discipline needed for the systematic control of a well-ordered home. A greater share of these responsibilities may fall on the shoulders of the more organised Twelve. At the same time the Twelve, with aptitudes on three planes of expression, has a wider occupational choice than a Three partner and the temptation to avail themselves of a greater variety of opportunity will be difficult to resist. Threes too are not without a wide range of choice on the mental plane, and they are so constituted that they make full use of their talents by involving themselves in more than one project at a time. Many Threes, and these include Twelve/Threes, have a disturbing habit of changing occupations or employers before they acquire sufficient expertise or seniority that will be to some lasting benefit to them. These changes invariably result in more of their attention being drawn to their careers and less to their domestic responsibilities.

Problems they may experience in their household affairs do not exist in their social life. As extroverted personalities, many mutual friendships will be formed by them covering a wide social circle. They will always be enthusiastic at the prospect of making new acquaintances and meeting new neighbours. As a couple they will be known for their good humour, generosity and hospitality. Both tune in effortlessly with the vibrations of any social gathering and do not turn aside or blush when the spotlight is turned on them. On the contrary, they hold the centre of attention as natural entertainers. A negative Three will be inclined to flaunt his or her ego a shade too far and turn into a proper bore. All Threes are essentially performers while Twelves are performers as well as observers. There is a balance in the sensitivity of the Twelve which is not found in the Three. This helps the Twelve to act and react from a position of greater inner strength. Threes have less control over their emotions and leave themselves open to emotional hurt. Their weakness lies in their dependence on the attention of others. A good deal of the Three’s inner disquiet and critical reactions are caused when they do not receive the recognition they expect from others. They may hide their inner feelings of insecurity behind a carefree façade.

This is certainly a combination of two great talkers. Being self-oriented persons, their favourite topics of conversation will centre on their personal affairs. Threes are inclined to be melodramatic, and whenever they are carried away by a particular issue, they could dwell on it for uncomfortably long periods. Twelves are more circumspect in giving out their opinions and are therefore less likely to make a statement they may regret later, or unwittingly injure the feelings of others. Unlike many Three partners they are not in the habit of making flat statements without explanations. Some negative Threes could be overbearing in speech and body language as a cover up of their lack of self-assurance. Positive Threes and all Twelves, despite their tendency towards self-centredness, make splendid conversationalists. Between themselves, they are evenly matched sparring partners. Both have short fuses and are inclined to reject ideas and opinions not initiated by themselves. Frequent flare-ups may be expected as their individual levels of tolerance do not defer a great deal. The Twelve will have greater staying power in an argument due to the persistence of the 1 vibration and the manoeuvrability of the 2. However, reconciliation will be speedy after their verbal duels as neither party is inclined to remain sulky for long or bear a grudge for any length of time. Their communication will also contain a constant flow of victimless good humour.

As sociability and friendship are among many of their shared characteristics, these partners will rarely strike out into solitary or personal hobbies during their leisure hours. There are so many similar talents and common objectives in this partnership that neither party will consider the need to look outside for companionship and fulfilment. Positive reinforcement will be found within the partnership. Among the numerous avenues of entertainment and productivity in which they can combine successfully, the chief ones would be in all forms of music, song and dance, literature and art, the theatre, beauty and health culture, and amateur sport. Their hobbies will be another aspect of life which will find them deeply involved and supportive of each other’s efforts.

The one stabilising factor in the financial side of this partnership lies within the 1 vibration in the Twelve partner. Consequently, the efforts of this partner will be needed to bring some measure of control over expenditure. Three’s regard for money does not go beyond its purchasing power. Their sights are on satisfying their several needs and not on a sense of security derived from saving money for a rainy day. Once the Three’s wants are satisfied, no further thought is given to money that has been spent or what has been left over. With the inbuilt safeguard of the money conscious 1 vibration, the Twelve has a greater measure of self-control resulting in the ability to exercise balance between their spending and saving habits.

Threes and Twelves are both romantic personalities and should be able to create a remarkable degree of compatibility in their love life. However, as they are also self-oriented, this state will not be attained automatically. Both expect to receive, as a right, the attention and admiration of their partners. They will need to work more on the giving aspect of their relationship and avoid concentrating on the receiving aspect. The Three may have to work upon themselves a little harder to establish a two-way romantic setting. The Twelve will find it easier through the influence of the understanding and self-sacrificing qualities of the 2 vibration. This same vibration generates a balanced flow of emotion which may be restricted to mental outlets only in the Three. Once these partners realise that the surest insurance against separatism and the best towards togetherness is in the giving of themselves unselfishly, they will find themselves ideally matched as friends and lovers. With a little effort they are quite capable of attaining this happy state.

The most productive partnerships will be formed when the Twelve meets a Three born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. Two positive personalities will form this partnership. After an initial contest for the authoritative position, they are certain to settle down to a happy compromise as one will see the strength and independence in the other and appreciate the futility of constant attempts to take over the controlling position from the other. When a Twelve takes up with a Three personality born in any month other than the ones mentioned, the contest for the position of leader and decision maker will not be resolved by compromise. The contest will, in fact, be short-lived as the Twelve partner will take over, using the diplomacy subtly provided by the 2 vibration and the inbuilt self-assurance of the 1.

3RD AND 13TH BIRTHDAYS

The 3rd and 13th days of any month create Three and Four personalities. However, this combination is not the same as that between Threes and Fours produced by the 3rd and 4th days of any month. In the latter instance, we have a pair vibrating to the full strength of the single vibration of their birthdays. In the present combination the straightforward Three is matched with a Four personality whose constitution is formed by the blending of the 1 and 3 vibrations. Four characteristics thus produced are different in many ways to those given by the pure 4 vibration. The chapter on the 3rd and 4th birthdays should, in any case, be consulted before or after the present chapter to appreciate the contrast between the two combinations.

Thirteens may be regarded, without reservation, as positive personalities. They are also multi-talented individuals whose positivity ensures full use of their potential. If harmful environmental influences have held them back, they are certain to emerge from this conditioning as soon as they mature or change their environment. The strong individualistic traits of the 1 and 3 vibrations cannot be held down for long; nor will their inherent tendencies towards leadership and prominent positions be denied. In contrast to the Thirteen’s natural qualities of initiative and authority, the plain Four is generally a follower of established laws and customs. While the Thirteen will readily challenge conditions that do not suit them, the Four will accommodate themselves to their environment and play an active role in upholding the establishment. Herein lies the basic difference between a Three/Four combination and a Three/Thirteen combination.

The straightforward Three personality has natural leadership traits but these will not be used constructively unless the Three is supported by the willpower and tenacity of the 1 vibration. Threes who possess this vibration in the birth month or in some other significant area of their integrated personality, will come close to matching the power of the Thirteen. Those who do not will be forced to yield their leadership ambitions to their Thirteen partners. Such Threes may not do so unconditionally, but could put on an outward show of authority instead which may be tolerated by the Thirteen with the knowledge that the real power within the partnership is in their hands.

While the mental plane is the single source of the Three personality’s power, the Thirteen not only draws its strength from the mental plane, but also gains tremendous strength from the physical plane through the 1 and 4 vibrations. While Threes may live in a mental world lacking true practical aptitude, all Thirteens possess a remarkable combination of mental and practical talent. The mental capacity of the 3 vibration within the Thirteen and the down-to-earth nature of the 1 and 4 combine to give them the practical ability to follow up their mental creations. As the vibrations of the emotional plane do not enter into the basic make-up of either Threes or Thirteens, an outward show of emotion will not be seen in their interaction. If an emotional vibration is found in the birth month of the Thirteen, all three planes will be accessed and their overall structure will be strengthened by a rounding off of personal qualities. The Three will not be so advantaged unless the individual is born in the 12th month which provides the strengthening 1 vibration as well as the emotional 2.

The desire to pursue a personal career is much stronger in the Three than the wish to take up a domestic way of life. Such a lifestyle will not be regarded as a challenging field for self-expression. The Thirteen’s pull towards public life is even stronger for the same reasons. With more facets to their personality, they are tempted by a wider range of opportunity. As both partners will be drawn away from a full-time domestic position, household and other family matters will necessarily be divided between them. This division may not turn out to be an equal one as the practical and dependable Thirteen will find themselves drawing up timetables and performing the greater share of routine and physical tasks which the impractical Three will not be conscious of. They are likely to do so willingly as well as through necessity, as their creative energy is not confined to mental activity, as in the case of the Three. Although the vocal Three partner will not be prevented from having their say in domestic matters, the Thirteen, by virtue of their greater versatility and persistence, will occupy the indispensable position.

The extroverted qualities of the 3 vibration operating in both will be responsible for their relatively similar social aspirations and the popularity they are certain to achieve within an ever widening circle of friends and acquaintances. They are jointly motivated to make their mark in the social world. Choice of company will reflect their youthful and modern attitudes. They are natural entertainers who use imagination, initiative and good humour to amuse each other and their associates. Other personal qualities that contribute to their popularity and wellbeing are generosity, good manners, and optimism. Neither party is prone to take on the moods of others. On the contrary, they usually set the tone of any social gathering. These are personality types who do not model themselves on standards set by others. They maintain their own styles quite effortlessly and see no need to apologise for what they are. However, in all social interaction, the Thirteen will undoubtedly be the more self-assured member. Thirteens are not dependent on re-assurance of their importance by others, as many Three personalities are, especially those who are negatively inclined. This idiosyncrasy of a negative Three will be reflected in various ways in their interaction with their Thirteen partners. A certain degree of rivalry will also arise for social acclaim with the Three attempting to appropriate a greater share. They may develop certain patterns of behaviour not only to gain the attention of others, but also to conceal their anxieties. Their anxieties are all centred on their need for attention.

Anyone influenced by the 3 vibration has an exceptional way with words and a fine tonal quality in their speech. As Threes and Thirteens are powerfully influenced by this vibration, oral communication between them will flow with natural ease. Also, as neither of them is emotionally controlling, they should be able to discuss individual and mutual matters using critical faculties of the mind. On the other hand, they may have difficulty discussing emotionally charged issues as both may suffer from emotional blocks when the need arises to verbalise their deeper emotions. In all other circumstances they do not hesitate to express their opinions openly and emphatically. For the most part, both parties are intolerant of contrary opinions and recoil from any form of criticism. These tendencies will invariably set the scene for frequent wrangling between these verbally gifted partners. However, a safety valve of good humour will sooner or later be released to rescue them from any form of unpleasantness caused by their word for word contests. Their belief in enjoying the good things of life is much stronger than any inherent tendency to remain sulky and resentful at something said during a heated exchange.

It is unlikely that their personal interests and leisure activities will diverge into unrelated areas. Their mutually rewarding social life will account for much of their non-working hours. Their creative talents will be utilised in the performing arts, painting, sculpture, literature, music, pottery, ceramics, and all outdoor sport. Both partners are capable of finishing a whole day’s work and then facing a second shift, as it were, in some energetic and creative leisure activity. As the cooperative spirit is not strong in either, there will be some competition and friction between them. However in general their mutual appreciation of each other’s talents will lead to a most productive combination. Their friendship and sense of loyalty will combine to create a formidable barrier against competition and negative criticism from outside agencies.

While the generous nature of the Three, particularly in regard to finances, is given free rein, the 1 and 4 vibration in the Thirteen place several safeguards over this personality’s spending habits. Either of these vibrations found in any degree of strength gives value consciousness to the individual. Operating together in the fortunate Thirteen, the individual is equipped with a healthy balance between open-handed spending and good economic management. Among other things which help to establish the Thirteen’s financial stability, is the foresight provided by the 1 element, the caution by the 4, and the optimism of the 3. Both parties have almost equal earning power and also the capacity to recover fast from financial reverses that may come their way. They need, and should have, direct access to money, but all decisions concerning major items of expenditure should be placed in the hands of the Thirteen. If this arrangement is kept, the financial side of the partnership will always remain secure.

The romantic aspect of this relationship will be kept alive by the youthful and imaginative influences of the 3 vibration common to both. They may not experience the complete fulfilment enjoyed from the clash and fusion of opposites, but what they may experience is the turmoil of personalities of similar needs who are unable to complement each other. There will be some difficulties met and adjustments needed in their intimate lives. Although a good deal of personal warmth may not be expressed due to the absence of emotional demonstration in both, their loyalty to each other could help them overcome many problems. The habit of touching or the language of touch, which contributes so much to emotional intimacy, may not be used as often as do emotionally oriented people. Compatibility in intimate life is best formed by a balanced interaction of active and receptive vibrations. In a Three/ Thirteen partnership, the balance is upset by the predominant influence of the active 1 and 3 vibrations. The concentrated 3 qualities in the Three partner and the 1 and 3 in the Thirteen tend to obscure many of the receptive qualities of the 4 in the Thirteen partner. This interaction of active vibrations in both parties is not always conducive to an ideal form of compatibility as neither party will be comfortable occupying a receptive or passive position in the relationship.

Partnerships between Thirteens and Threes born in the 1st, 10th 11th and 12th months can succeed only when the independence of each partner is accepted. Any attempts by one to dominate the other will assuredly fail and damage the long term chances of the partnership. Partnerships between Thirteen and Threes born in other months will not be of the same equalitarian basis. The Thirteen will prove to be the stronger personality and will, without doubt, take over the controlling role. These partnerships have a better chance of success than the previous combinations.

3RD AND 14TH BIRTHDAYS

A partnership in which one party has a single digit birthday and the other a multiple digit birthday is often a setting for initial misunderstanding and subsequent adjustment of attitudes. This is due to the concentrated qualities of the vibration symbolised by the single digit and the diversified qualities of the vibrations of the multiple digits. In the present combination the nature of the Three personality, born on the 3rd day of any month, is formed by untouched qualities of the 3 vibration relative to the mental plane. The personality may be analysed and understood without difficulty. The kind of life one may expect with a Three partner may be predicted with reasonable accuracy. All we need is a good knowledge of the power of the 3 vibration. The influence of the vibration of the birth month certainly plays a contributory role in forming the integral personality. This influence may, on the one hand, emphasise 3 qualities in positive or negative ways, and on the other hand, add secondary facets to the personality. However, over and above these secondary facets, the individual remains a constitutional Three personality who will view the world and participate in it by virtue of the characteristics of the 3 vibration.

A personality analysis of those born on the 14th day of the month meets with complications not found in a single digit birthday such as the 3rd. All Fourteens are basically Five personalities, but they are not the same as Fives born on the 5th day of the month. A compatibility assessment of Threes and Fives born on the 3rd and 14th respectively will not be the same as that between Threes and Fives born on the 3rd and 5th. However a perusal of the chapter on the 3rd and 5th birthdays is recommended so that the difference between a Three’s relationship with a straightforward Five and a compounded Five may be appreciated. Though the straightforward Five has access to the mental and physical planes, the core of the personality is firmly fixed on the emotional plane. This cannot be said of the Fourteen/Five due to their exceptionally strong footing on the physical plane, through the 1 and 4 vibrations operating in the foreground of the personality. A significant alteration takes place in emotional expression. While not being altogether suppressed, demonstration of emotion and impetuous actions are held in strict control. Fourteens are able to introduce a conscious delay in action or reaction when emotionally disturbed. Many other positive 5 characteristics are strengthened and negative ones removed. The 1 and 4 vibrations contribute extraordinary stability, a firm sense of direction, and many predictable habits. At the same time the influence of the enigmatic 5 vibration operating at fundamental levels portend many hidden sides to their character that are unrelated to normal 1 and 4 qualities. The mental orientation and impracticality of the Three partner and the physical orientation and practicality of the Fourteen may be taken as the fundamental differences between these partners. The physical nature of the Fourteen has its source not only from the 1 and 4 vibrations, but also in the 5. Though the 5 is the central number of the emotional plane, it has a close affinity with physical life. This partnership can be strengthened into a most productive force if the pragmatism of the Fourteen and its love of the external world of form are used to channel the powerful creative imagination of the Three. As their talents do not cover the same territory, they can be used to supplement that which is incomplete or lacking in each other. Their differences need not be taken as causes that set them in opposition to each other or send them into separate directions, but as reciprocal powers that can unite them into a productive force. Achieving this ideal state will not be easy as both personality types are inclined to handle differences with confrontation rather than diplomacy. They resist direct orders and often meet aggression with aggression. Oral means of offence and defence will be used by the Three while the Fourteens, who do not have the same fluency of speech, may resort to outbursts of temper and some physical outlets may be found to get rid of their frustrations. Qualities needed for a harmonious interchange of talents, such as cooperation, tact, patience and agreement, are not among the prominent characteristics of either partner. They do not feel the need to seek advice or support, or to explain their actions.

Threes are usually egocentric personalities who seek the centre of attention and expect others, especially those near to them, to dance to their tune. Some may even demand differential attitudes from their loved ones and invent strategies to ensure they receive them. This will be clearly evident in Threes who are negatively inclined. Unfortunately for the Three, these demands will not be tolerated by the down-to-earth Fourteen, whose self-sufficiency precludes them from understanding this idiosyncrasy of the Three personality. People and situations are not seen by the Fourteen as a means to boost their self-confidence nor are they seen as threatening to their egos. Objectivity enters the outlook of the Fourteen through the 4 and 5 vibrations which gives them a good measure of community consciousness and responsibility. On a relative basis a clearer perception of the needs of others followed by direct action is characteristic of the Fourteen.

Ambition is a quality shared by both. Although their methods and motives may differ widely, their common purpose is to rise in the world and exercise authority over others. Popularity and fame are the principal aims of the Three with material gain as a secondary factor. The acquisition of power and attainment of material wellbeing are the first priorities of the Fourteen, while popularity and fame take up a secondary position. Success comes easily to all positive Threes while those who tend towards negativity need to acquire strength of purpose and self-confidence if all their ambitions are to be achieved. The extroverted nature of all Threes carries them a long way towards acquiring success in business and social life. Other Three qualities such as good humour, high intelligence, optimism, loyalty to friends, good manners, generosity, and extraordinary Three talents in all forms of art, sportsmanship and fluent speech contribute to their success. Many Threes nevertheless have a bad habit of scattering their energies in several directions which may neutralise their chances of success in a particular direction. Their Fourteen partners, though lacking the flair and charm of the Three, are better equipped for a steady climb to success in whatever direction they choose. The purpose given by the 1 vibration, the steadfastness of the 4, and self-discipline given by both, ensure that they complete a course of action before moving on to something new. The underlying 5 provides flexibility and versatility. The Fourteen’s need for order, regularity and their resistance to unnecessary change, will force them to take over the greater share of domestic responsibility. Their physical endurance, practicality, self-discipline, ability to handle stress and persistence in the face of frustration combine to give them the strength to complete a day’s work in public life and attend to household duties as a second shift. Fourteens do not like to see a practical task left incomplete, nor will they admit that such a task or problem has beaten them. Their sense of duty and responsibility is extraordinarily high. Threes do not like to be confronted with household problems. They will welcome the relief given them by their Fourteen partners. As a result of the extra responsibility taken up by the Fourteens, their decisions will always carry more weight in all domestic matters.

The friendly and open personality of the completely extroverted Three places no restrictions on social activity. They are light-hearted, unconventional and modern in their choice of company and amusements. Fourteens, who are mildly extroverted, show prudence and conservatism in their selection of friends and prefer to integrate into the established order of society. Their usual attachment to traditional values may clash with the Three’s flamboyant style. However, whenever the 5 element in the Fourteen is brought into the foreground of activity, these partners will be prepared to join the Three in any unusual company or activity. Fourteens really gain greater fulfilment from physical activity than from social intercourse. Contact with people is accepted as a natural consequence of their outdoor interests. Unlike the Three, who is dependent on interaction with people to maintain a balance in their lives, Fourteens are secure in themselves. Although their conservative nature places great value on a good reputation, they can perform confidently in social life without soliciting the encouragement and adulation of those around them.

Oral communication between these partners will be marked by unsolicited opinions, definite assertions and authoritative body language. Both parties are fond of laying down the law, and this habit will not be withheld from their own relationship. They will say what they think and expect their views to be accepted without argument. Communication between them will reveal the abundance of words used by the Threes in a pedantic way, and the precise speech of the Fourteen made in a direct and forceful manner. The Three’s extensive vocabulary and oral flexibility could frustrate and anger the verbally restricted Fourteen at the early stage of a confrontation. Many Threes use their power of speech as a shield against inner insecurity. Also, most Threes use tactics of offence and defence in their verbal battles. Fourteens use offence only. The 1 and 4 vibrations provide greater attacking and staying power and stubbornness than the Three can ever hope to match. Furthermore, Threes are sooner or later put entirely on the defensive when the Fourteen resorts to the versatile powers of the underlying 5 vibration. Another factor which contributes to the Fourteens ascendency is the Three’s mentally restless nature. They soon tire or lose interest in the point at issue and turn to something that provides amusement and opportunity for self-expression.

Following the practical and physical nature of the 1, 4 and 5 vibrations, the Fourteen partner will take up hobbies in which their natural aptitude with the hands and strong bodies can be put to maximum advantage. They are also genuine handypersons who enjoy fixing things in and around the home. Their presence in the household with an impractical Three partner will be invaluable. True to the highly imaginative nature of the 3 vibration, Three partners will turn to artistic, socially-oriented and literary pastimes. The high sense of form and design natural to the Fourteen, and the fine sense of beauty and colour natural to the Three, can be combined to produce many excellent works of art. However, these partners will not depend on each other. The chances are that the Three may turn to music, song-writing, acting, painting, entertaining and similar mentally oriented pastimes. Fourteens who revel in physical activity, and exhibit coolness in danger, may take up more vigorous outdoor activities involving an element of risk, physical courage and physical strength. Both partners are natural sportspersons and will take a sympathetic interest in the sports they take up. Fourteens are highly competitive individuals who play to win. They are proficient in all forms of body contact sport and activities in which a great deal of physical endurance is called for. They usually turn professional. The money side of sport becomes more attractive to them than the social side. Threes enjoy the social aspect as well as the participation. They usually remain amateurs and avoid sports involving body contact.

The Fourteen’s attitude towards money is the product of two complementary forces. The 1 and 4 are among the most financially trustworthy forces. The first priority of persons influenced by these vibrations is the establishment of a background of financial security. The pleasures of life will be enjoyed thereafter. Many may exercise considerable self-restraint in the process of establishing themselves. Those influenced by the pure 5 vibration begin to extract the best they can get out of life with the least delay. They do not believe in self-restraint, but live for the present. They are natural gamblers who hold no fears for the future. In the Fourteen personality, these characteristics are subdued by the powerful 1 and 4, and self-indulgent spending habits that may be destructive of their financial welfare are brought under strict control. The 3 vibration has many qualities in common with the 5, including the attitude it gives towards money. It is the reverse of the 1 and 4 and other financially responsible vibrations. In the present combination the Three partner’s demands for freedom to spend freely will set them at loggerheads with the cautious Fourteen. The Fourteen’s sense of responsibility and financial acumen should be allowed to prevail.

Threes are highly romantic personalities. Their love life is always eventful and emotionally complicated. Love of beauty, the ability to express themselves in every way, and their involvement in a wide circle of friends and acquaintances exposes them to several situations involving matters of the heart. However, once a Three settles down into a loving relationship, they remain faithful to their partners, though mildly flirtatious habits may still remain. The 1, 4 and 5 vibrations forming the Fourteen are among the most sexually active forces. The 5 gives a constant urge for variety and change in all things, including sex. However, as they do in the financial aspect of life, the 1 and 4 vibrations exert an overriding influence over 5 characteristics, giving the Fourteen a more uniform attitude towards sex. Their approach to sex will be physical rather than sentimental and romantic. While the Three will not be given the sentimental attention they expect from their partners, they can be assured of a fulfilling sex life, plus the Fourteen’s loyalty, dependability and family pride.

Threes born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months are individualistic and independent minded personalities. These Threes will have difficulty compromising with Fourteens, who could be even more independent and stubborn. A relationship between Fourteens and Threes born in other months will be more harmonious as these Threes will soon give up the contest for the position of authority in the partnership.

3RD AND 15TH BIRTHDAYS

Active vibrations predominate in this birthday combination. The 1, 3 and 5 vibrations provide some of the most dynamic, versatile, extroverted and progressive characteristics of active vibrations. The 1 gives self-confidence and self-reliance, the 3 exudes youthful enthusiasm and demands freedom for self-expression and the 5 seeks experience, variety and change. People strongly influenced by these vibrations seldom fail to extract the best they can obtain out of life. Three and Fifteen personalities will be no exceptions, but differences will be observed in the manner in which they set out to do so.

Threes are energised by the concentrated power of the 3 vibration operating on the mental plane. This plane will be the focus of their consciousness, and other aspects of their personality will be subordinate and contributory. Some Threes may be exposed to the danger of lopsided development if balancing vibrations are not operating in the birth month, birth year or in other powerful spheres of influence found in the name. To ensure a proper balance of the personality structure, emotional and physical vibrations are needed in these areas. The most desirable will be the 1 vibration which provides willpower needed to utilise the latent leadership qualities of the 3 and the confidence to live up to all the positive qualities of this vibration. People born on the 15th day are not dependent on other areas of influence as this birthday contains physical (1), emotional (5) and mental (6) vibrations in equal force thus creating a balanced personality. Furthermore, the strong coverage of the three planes precludes the entry of negative qualities. A repetition of any of the birthday vibrations in other areas of influence will only serve to strengthen that aspect of the personality. The 1 vibration gives individuality, direction and willpower and the 5 provides adaptability, enterprise and emotional expression. The combination of the 1 and 5 is a guarantee of physical strength and courage, competition and the spirit of adventure in the physical world. The 6 vibration at fundamental levels of the personality, controls the overactive physical elements generated by the 1 and 5 and provides avenues for expression in mentally channelled aspects of life. Also, the down-to-earth and practical qualities of the 1 combined with the logical and cautious nature of the 6 combine to control many impulsive tendencies of the 5. The curiosity of the 5, in turn, opens out many conservative tendencies found in the 1 and 6 aspects of the personality.

In a Three/Fifteen combination the Fifteen will emerge as the influential partner whose decisions will seldom be overturned by the Three. The Three will, no doubt, attempt to establish a measure of authority. Positive Threes and Fifteens will often find themselves in conflict as both resist direct approaches and neither will be prepared to compromise or relinquish their points of view for the sake of peace. Each may be too sure of his or her own ground to give the other a hearing. At no time should either partner attempt to lay down rules that won’t be kept or accepted. By avoiding head-on confrontations and approaching each other indirectly they will not only give each other a chance to examine the real facts of a contentious issue but also spare each other’s feelings. All this will not come easily to Threes and Fifteens as their authoritative nature is stronger than their cooperative and conciliatory qualities. A dominant/subservient arrangement will not develop between a positive Three and a Fifteen. An equal partnership in which both parties have room for movement and take on separate areas of responsibility is the only certain way they can get along. This will not be the case in a partnership where the Three partner is inclined towards negativity. The Three accepts the dominance of the Fifteen as long as their egos are not injured openly and as long as they can settle for an outward show of authority.

Threes are essentially egocentric individuals who function with the attitude of mind which supposes that the world revolves around their egos. Fifteens, on the other hand, possess a relative attunement with their environment and consequently have, among other things, a greater perception of the needs of those around them. Threes are by no means selfish or motivated to the slightest degree by avarice. They are, in fact, among the most amicable and liberal personality types. Their problem is that they get tied up within themselves too easily and need to be reminded from time to time of their obligations towards others.

Career couples are usually the product of this birthday combination. Both partners possess qualities, when developed, which could command their price in any profession. The Three personality is always happiest working in the company of others and usually reaches a position of authority. A confined atmosphere will be considered an intolerable scene for self-expression. A domestic way of life will be regarded as such. It will not provide the challenges, excitement and variety needed for personal fulfilment. The youthful and irrepressible nature of the Three will resent being tied down solely to the very real responsibilities of domesticity. The Fifteen makes even stronger claims for freedom of action on a widest possible scale through the combined influence of the resourceful and energetic 1 and 5 vibrations. However, the Fifteen is basically a Six personality and the 6 vibration is the strongest domestic force. All Fifteens, therefore, have a built-in capacity to lead an active public life as well as take up domestic duties without regarding them as burdensome and restricting. In a Three/Fifteen partnership there is no doubt that the greater share of these duties will fall on the broader shoulders of the Fifteen.

Three personalities invariably maintain a high profile in social life. The influence of other areas of their personality structure, whether positive or negative, does not reduce their heightened need for social intercourse. The 6 vibration also produces gregarious and hospitable individuals. However, social attractions are modified in the Fifteen personality as this individual is a qualified Six. The individualistic 1 and dynamic 5 make the Sixteen much more independent of the society of others. Physical activity generated by these vibrations takes precedence over direct interaction with people. While the Three is often unconventional and youth oriented, the Fifteen has the capacity to switch from the unconventional to traditional patterns of behaviour. A generation gap can easily be bridged by the Fifteen. Despite these differences Threes and Fifteens can form an exceptionally successful social team. The Three can reasonably lift themselves to the levels of physical activity taken up by the Fifteens. In turn, the Fifteen has all the qualifications needed for social success. With a general aura of good humour and friendliness both parties are open to new experiences. Neither of them, however, can stand boring situations or dull people for any length of time.

Both partners are gifted with the power of speech. Any Threes who may be inclined towards negative ways may use this gift without control. They may talk excessively and concentrate on exalting their egos. Positive Threes are also good talkers and, with no hint of shyness, take charge of conversation during which their points of view will be freely stated and no invitation extended for the opinions of others. These habits will not be viewed kindly by the matter-of-fact and unceremonious Fifteen, who will readily take up any point made by the Three that has a suspicion of egoistic flavour. They will not be tolerant of the Three’s need for self-indulgence and attraction of attention. The Three will match the Fifteen in word power and mental agility but not in persistence and objectivity. These partners will habitually cut into each other’s conversation and frequent verbal contests can be expected. The Fifteen, with the combined strength of hands, heart and head will always have their way with a negative Three partner, and more often than not succeed with a positive one.

Individuality and independence will be displayed by both partners in their choice of leisure activities. Their energetic temperaments will be a demonstration of variety and change. Most Threes are certain to take up a calling in one or more of the fine arts. Many of them use their artistic talents as their principal means of livelihood, and often their leisure activities are indistinguishable from their public life. They are also keen participants in competitive sport. Their Fifteen partners, while showing keen appreciation of the Three’s artistic talents, will pursue their own hobbies in the outdoors and in competitive as well as non-competitive activities. An element of danger and risk will always attract them. Threes and Fifteens will not begrudge each other the time taken up by their personal interests. On the contrary, they will often combine to enjoy each other’s pastimes. The Three shares the spirit of adventure which motivates the Fifteen, while the 6 element in the Fifteen finds sympathy with the Three’s artistic talents and sensitivity.

While the Three personality is dependent on other areas of influence to provide financial caution, the Fifteen has a solid inbuilt safeguard through the combined strength of the money conscious 1 and 6 vibrations. Uncontrolled Threes are free spenders and their optimistic views on life give little thought for the future. Their present-moment consciousness when taken to extremes, may give their Fifteen partners cause for alarm. As the multi-faceted Fifteen occupies more observation points, as it were, in the melodrama of life they are able to see a better overall picture and maintain concern for their financial security. If the partnership’s finances show signs of moving downhill it will be left to the Fifteen to take charge and invent strategies to reverse the trend. Fifteens are by no means preoccupied with money responsibilities as the 5 element within the personality has much in common with 3 characteristics. However, the balancing effect of the 1, 5 and 6 vibrations not only looks for economic stability but also seeks material comfort, pleasurable entertainment and the exercise of power. The Three has a tremendous capacity to make money, and if the Fifteen’s influence is allowed to save some of this money the prosperity of the partnership is assured.

Neither of these personalities likes to feel hemmed in and the secret of success in their intimate lives is room for movement. They do not like to be pursued in courtship. If this is to be done they would want to do the pursuing themselves. Although both dislike dependent and ‘yes’ partners they are at their best when their partner needs them most. This is especially so in the case of the Fifteen who has been freed from expectations and has little time for approval seeking. Their love seldom involves any unfair imposition on their loved ones. The youthful aspect of the Three’s nature, on one hand, seeks freedom for self-expression, and on the other hand needs endorsement of their actions. They may influence their Fifteen partners by evoking strong latent tendencies to act as protectors. This could be used with considerable mutual benefit if the Fifteen wisely employs the motherly/fatherly element of their personality. The romantic Three and adventuresome Fifteen will find fulfilment in each other’s sexual needs and preferences. As both personalities bring in variety and experiment into their relationship a healthy and active sex life can be expected.

Partnerships between Fifteens and Threes who are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will be volatile, yet productive and successful. These will be partnerships between highly intelligent and self-assured personalities. Their success will depend upon the extent both parties develop a cooperative spirit which is not naturally strong in either. Fifteens will take charge of a partnership with a Three born in any other month. These Threes will have all the mental attributes of the 3 vibration but will lack the self-confidence and willpower of their positive counterparts.

3RD AND 16TH BIRTHDAYS

Complications always arise in a combination where one partner has a single digit birthday and the other a multiple digit birthday. They may be found not only in the couple’s interaction but quite often within the personality of the partner with the multiple digit birthday. A single digit birthday produces a personality with more or less concentrated qualities, and any variation of behaviours will be within the range of the general qualities of the particular vibration controlling the birthday. A multiple digit birthday, on the other hand, usually contains at least three vibrations with either interacting or counteracting facets that require a period of time before the variable nature of its subjects is understood. Furthermore, the vibrations of the birth month and other spheres of influence may enhance the complexity of a multiple digit birthday, but in a single digit birthday, new numbers open out fresh dimensions within the personality. These aspects, however, will be secondary to the force of the birthday numbers. The present combination of birthdays may be cited as an example in which a degree of self study and mutual understanding will be needed before a relative state of compatibility is realised.

Three personalities are controlled by an extroverted, active, exuberant and youthful vibration. All Threes are egocentric personalities who set out to extract the best out of life. A zest for living and self-expression in a variety of forms are the dominant forces governing them. They do not use aggressive, acquisitive and selfish means to enjoy living, but instead, show many endearing qualities such as friendliness, good manners, enthusiasm, charm, loyalty, generosity, and above all their artistic talents and versatility. They also possess a knack for satisfying their egocentric ways as well as giving out joy and entertaining to others. Positive Threes who enjoy a natural self-confidence demonstrate these qualities to the fullest extent, while those with negative traits are restrained to some degree. The magnetic attraction of these aspects of the Three’s personality ensures their popularity in all walks of life. A sedate Sixteen personality will not remain unmoved by the charm and talents of a Three. Threes on the other hand will be attracted by the feelings of security and comfort aroused in them by the motherly/fatherly qualities of a Sixteen. Subsequent adjustments will be called for if a less permanent relationship is formed when practical aspects of the Three become known to the Sixteen and disciplined aspects of the Sixteen’s lifestyle becomes known to the Three.

Sixteen personalities are a blend of the receptive 6 vibration on the mental plane and the active 1 and 7 vibrations on the physical plane. As this birthday does not contain emotional numbers (2, 5 or 8) the absence of an emotional outlet in the personality structure becomes a noteworthy factor in any relationship. It may be advantageous with some partners, disadvantageous with others and ineffective with certain others. As emotional demonstration is not a part of the Three’s personality this factor does not hold much significance in a Three/ Sixteen relationship. Nevertheless, it should be noted that these personalities are not devoid of emotion. In fact they are motivated to a considerable extent by emotion. Unless an opening is found in other areas of influences, they may lack the ability to come across demonstratively. Spontaneous touching, embracing and other physical demonstrations of their emotions are restricted. The Sixteen is basically a Seven personality, but pure 7 characteristics are influenced by the 1 and 6 vibrations operating in the foreground of the personality. At the same time, the 1 and 7 being physical vibrations and having many common features combine to obscure some 6 characteristics. Individuality, independence and self-reliance are among the strongest characteristics of the 1 and 7 and a combination of these two numbers within the Sixteen is an assurance that this personality stands on his or her own feet and resents interference in their lifestyle. Privacy, introspection and keen mental analysis are features common to the 1 and 7, and these qualities take precedence over extroverted behaviour of the uninfluenced 6 vibration. Left on their own these vibrations produce very private people who are the direct opposite of the open Three personality. However, the gregarious nature of the 6 vibration does help to open out many closed-in tendencies in the Sixteen. The combined strength of the 1 and 7 will nevertheless remain the stronger force.

The Three partner will be inclined to judge the Sixteen by his or her personal standards of extroversion. This will be a fault that the Three will need to overcome if harmony is to be established. The more objective nature of the Sixteen will not apply the same standards of judgment. The Three, who seldom experiences identity problems, will need to realise that the Sixteen has to cope with opposing forces of introversion and extroversion, and therefore cannot be hurried into participating in an extroverted lifestyle. Sixteens have a tendency to cling to traditional customs and are slow to adapt to change, but Threes favour unconventional and ultra modern ways and are often leaders in fashion and new trends. They take experiences as they come and become involved in immediate goals. Sixteens consider distant objectives more important and are inclined to ponder over their experiences and examine their financial, philosophical and spiritual aspects.

A life tied to domesticity will not be consistent with a Three partner’s expectations. As their extrovert nature is seldom moderated by reserved vibrations found in other areas of their integral personality they delight in unrestricted interaction with people and the widest possible field of activity for expression of their exuberant personal qualities and versatile talents. They seldom exhibit the patience and diligence needed for willing and responsible home management on a long-term basis. They are actually true career persons who set out to make a name for themselves in the professions and in the entertainment field. Sixteens, who are supported by the strongest domestic vibration, namely the 6, will not tolerate conflict between an occupational role and a family role. Furthermore, all three vibrations comprising this birthday produce an irresistible tendency in their subjects to act as breadwinners and guardians. They are possessive, protective and proud of their home and loved ones, and quite capable of combining good home management and a career in public life. They are independent of the need for constant interaction with people and are therefore able to spend time and energy contentedly in a home environment. In a Three/ Sixteen partnership, whether or not the Sixteen is the breadwinner, this partner will assume the greater share of domestic responsibility.

A characteristic clearly evident in all Three personalities is their sociability, and their yen for social popularity. This is not as evident in the three-part Sixteen as only the 6 aspect of this personality tends naturally towards social life. The 1 and 7 aspects of their disposition are reserved and selective in social life. While many Threes, especially younger ones, will allow themselves to be pulled by friends in all directions and revel in this state of affairs, Sixteens of all ages will show self-management and caution in their choice of company and social activity. Pleasure in their own company or carefully chosen entertainment takes precedence over the social whirl enjoyed by a Three. They do see society as an important part of their lives but refuse to be ruled by it. Their self-confidence is self-generated while the Three’s self-confidence is built upon the recognition and admiration they receive from others. Most Threes are peer-oriented. They are also comfortable in the company of people younger than themselves but may avoid older or mellowed company. Sixteens do not acknowledge a generation gap. They can move comfortably between peer groups and people who are younger or older than themselves. An interesting difference in the social attitudes of Threes and Sixteens arises from the Threes egocentric thoughts and the Sixteen’s greater detachment from their egos. Sixteens show greater interest in others while Threes strive to have others interested in them. However, the Three’s desire for social popularity does not diminish their identity as individuals. They maintain their personal identity at all times. The Sixteen does the same. Mature Threes and all Sixteens are able to reject pressures and demands not initiated or not acceptable to them.

The surest way to identify a Three personality is from his or her fluent and articulate speech. They are good conversationalists and eloquent speakers. They are, at the same time, poor listeners, who lack the patience to give their undivided attention to others. They prefer to be heard than do the hearing. Sixteens, on the other hand, are reserved speakers with sparing use of words. They prove to be knowledgeable conversationalists and good listeners. In all oral communication it is the 6 vibration within this personality that helps open out, in self-chosen conditions, the generally close-lipped temperament contributed by the tendencies of the 1 and 7 vibrations. In a verbal contest between Threes and Sixteens, the Sixteen may be temporarily overwhelmed by the Three’s word power, but the Three will be eventually overcome by the Sixteen’s logic and down-to-earth arguments. The Three may speak with a tone of authority but the Sixteen presents their opinions with a tone of finality. Threes often speak in a melodramatic way and say a good deal more than is needed with emotionally charged expressions. The Sixteen, on the other hand is cautious about displaying their feelings or discussing emotionally charged issues. Threes are often critical of others and their partners are not excluded. More often than not their comments are without malice though their humorous and witty remarks may at times have plenty of sting. Depending on how they handle their Sixteen partners they can anticipate a variety of responses, such as argument, cynicism, aggression or indifference. The Three may endeavour to have the last word but this will be ignored by the Sixteen as irrelevant to the final outcome.

When Threes take up hobbies they display considerable powers of concentration and tremendous enthusiasm. As creative thinkers with a keen eye for beauty, colour and accuracy, their talents cover a wide range of artistic expression. With their natural urge to beautify and enrich anything they touch many Threes take up hobbies that turn into gainful assets. Fame as well as profit often accompanies their efforts. Apart from accepting complimentary support from their partners they are not dependent on any other form of help. The Sixteen will be generously appreciative of the Three’s efforts and achievements. Sixteens are generally homebound individuals whose spare time will be spent within the home and neighbourhood in practical and physically directed pastimes, such as mechanical work, gardening, house maintenance and cooking. While allowing themselves time and space to pursue their individual interests both partners need to make an effort to set aside exclusive time and energy for each other. Areas in which they will certainly combine their interest and talents will be the culinary arts and home decoration.

The Sixteen will be obliged to take over the financial responsibilities of the partnership. They possess a much higher degree of consistency in their spending habits, as their judgment is not swayed by impulse, impatience and the desire to have almost everything they find new and attractive. Threes do not show attachment to or appreciation of the value of money. The magnetic attraction of shopping expeditions has a greater hold on them than the advantage of a growing savings account at a bank. They have expensive tastes and are inclined to spend lavishly on clothing and other personal needs. Sixteens give little thought for extraordinary personal adornment and concentrate on moderation and durability in their choice of attire and other personal requisites.

As these partners will not usually reach out to each other through outward demonstration of emotion, they may take some time to recognise each other’s strong emotional life. The romantic Three is emotionally more vulnerable than the Sixteen as they need frequent reassurance of their partner’s love and devotion. Once the intuitive Sixteen perceives this need strong protective instincts are brought into play from deep within them and the comfort and fidelity offered will inspire trust and confidence in the Three. The Sixteen’s love life needs to be charged with the right atmosphere and this will be created by the Sixteen’s themselves. Knowing the Three’s resistance to a direct approach the Sixteen will adopt a passive form of authority by setting a good example and placing the Three under obligation to conform to their preferences. The Sixteen’s expectations will always be reasonable thus safeguarding the sensitivity and pride of the Three partner.

All Sixteens are positive personalities on account of the activator 1 vibration in their birthdays. They do not depend on other areas of their chart for positive energy. Threes are certain to be positive only if they are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months. Positive Threes and Sixteens make the most productive partnerships. These partnerships are usually partnerships of equals. A dominant role is not assumed or maintained by either one or the other. However, in a partnership between a Sixteen and a Three born in any month other than the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th, the Sixteen will assume the dominant role. This may occur even if the Three has a supply of positive 1 vibrations in other areas of their chart. None of them will be strong enough to overcome the strength of the Sixteen.

3RD AND 17TH BIRTHDAYS

3rd and 17th birthdays set side by side and examined for compatibility in their vibratory structure reveal a greater proportion of dissimilarities than similarities. Not only do we find that their vibrations are of a different character but we are also faced with a situation of a single digit birthday matched with a multiple digit birthday. Subjects of the former are activated by the relatively unqualified power of a single vibration, while those of the latter are complicated by a mixture of three vibrations. The conduct of a personality with a single digit birthday is usually predictable due to the absence of complexity. Further, the unavoidable adjustments in any partnership with this type of partner are made easier. In a multiple digit birthday one has often to cope with a two or three-part personality and this situation poses some difficulties for the single-digit partner, whose vision is usually focused in one dimension.

The Three personality is the product of a vibration symbolising the principle of youth. Youthful traits such as fresh, quick-witted and nimble minds that instantly pick up new knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness are clearly evident in Three personalities of all ages. They are proud of their individuality, and are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to express themselves in a variety of ways. They usually succeed in gaining the centre of attention wherever they are. They are natural performers who cannot be relegated to the sidelines. On a negative note, their active mental attitudes are often directed into a mixture of self-defeating activities. They are all too frequently overcome by the temptation to try out new things, and they do so at the expense of matters they have already taken in hand. It is not unusual to see a Three give up something when they are only half-way through and turn to something that seems more attractive. Most Threes have yet to overcome ego-centred thought processes and develop awareness of their position as part of a world consciousness and not islands by themselves. This characteristic is highlighted when they are compared with the relatively impersonal and comprehensive though processes of the Seventeen.

Unlike many multiple digit birthdays where the individual power of each vibration may be generally modified or have counteracting influences on each other, the 1, 7 and 8 vibrations in the 17th birthday have so many similar qualities that their united action enhances the overall power of these common features. As an added advantage there are not many contradictory elements introduced into this birthday. Seventeens are also confirmed individualists in the sense that they are motivated by free and independent thought and action. They are self-teachers who conduct their own research and study. They do not imitate the behaviour or follow the lead of others. Their individualism, however, differs from that of the Three insofar as it is not put on display or set up for others to emulate. Their self-assurance, self-sufficiency and greater objectivity obviate the need for advancing their egos. Their individualistic ways are confronted only in a close association of one form or another. Some qualities which the 1, 7 and 8 vibrations have in common which, among other things, contribute to their particular type of individualism, are willpower, authority, forethought, deliberation, courage, dependability, dedication, mental analysis, financial acumen, emotional restraint and an aversion for all forms of pettiness. On the negative side this mixture creates traits of intolerance, impatience and uncooperative and self-righteous attitudes. A Three partner faced with these reinforced characteristics may find life with a Seventeen rather strict and restricting.

Despite soft emotional centres in both partners demonstration of their emotions is restricted. The purely mental nature of the 3 vibration diverts the Three’s emotions into powerful imaginative channels which lead to artistic expression, appreciation of beauty in all things and orally presented body language. Seventeens have the emotional 8 vibration in their personality complex, but its emotional qualities are held in check by the strong physical 1 and 7 vibrations. These vibrations engender a strong distaste for emotional display in any form. They look for physical activity to focus their feelings. Rather than unwittingly overlook each other’s emotionality, these partners will need to realise and respond tactfully to their emotional needs.

The basic difference between Threes and Seventeens is found in the youthful nature of the 3 vibration controlling the Three partner, and in the Seventeen, by the mature qualities of the 7 and 8 supported by the urgency of the 1. These partners find themselves on different wavelengths so that they inhabit different worlds for the most part. Threes do not ponder over their experiences. They interpret them optimistically and light-heartedly, while Seventeens are thoughtful, cautious, analytical and even suspicious at times. These differences in outlook will disturb both, but the effect on the Seventeen will be proportionately greater as they expect their partners to live up to fairly exacting standards. Threes are open personalities who experience no difficulty in putting their ideas, feelings and desires across. Seventeens usually live in a private world preferring to keep their ideas and desires to themselves. Also, a certain degree of oral restriction presents them from giving adequate expression to their thoughts and feelings on the rare occasions they may wish to do so. In many ways a Three/Seventeen partnership will be an illustration of spontaneity verses rigidity.

They are both decisive individuals whose minds are seldom clouded by doubt. The Three’s decisions are spontaneous, while the Seventeen’s are the result of deliberation, forethought and intuition. Threes have strong wills but may be wanting in judgment, but Seventeens invariably act from a position of strength and judgment. Threes may change their minds, as their imagination constantly sees alternatives that are seemingly more attractive. In order to meet a Seventeen partner on the same terms or place the partnership on an equal footing, the Three will need to step down from a sphere of imagination to a sphere of practicality. If not, the Seventeen will doubtlessly take charge of most of the practical aspects of their relationship and consequently assume a position of greater authority. The chances are that this will be a dual career partnership as neither partner is particularly housebound. Household duties will need to be taken up as a joint undertaking. Work undertaken by the Seventeen will usually be of a specialised nature while that of the Three will be generalised. These partners could easily become locked in a power struggle for the distribution of authority and responsibility within the home. Seventeens need relief at regular periods from the hustle and bustle of public and social life. This is sought in the peace and tranquillity of a stable home life, which they do their best to establish. Their attraction to home is based on their love of privacy rather than any love for housekeeping. Apart from fulfilling, with quiet efficiency, all necessary household duties, Seventeens will fulfil their need for their own company in home oriented hobbies. Given a free choice, Threes will involve themselves in their careers, social life and hobbies without becoming tied down by domestic routine.

The Three’s development of a good self-image and a happy lifestyle is closely tied to success in social life. These natural extroverts adapt easily to the social features of their environment. Seventeens are not as socially responsive. They are not extroverted in the manner of the Three. They usually occupy a position between introversion and extroversion. Unlike their convivial and modernistic Three partners, they are strictly selective of the company they move in, and choose the conservative elements of social life when they do so. For entirely different reasons, independence of group standards is a feature shared by both partners. Threes are leaders and pioneers in social undertakings while Seventeens remain detached and disinterested in the social whirl, having less need for interaction with people, or for outward display of their talents. Their leadership qualities are usually reserved for business life. Seventeens may act as a good foil for any social excess by the Three partner and the Three, in turn, could draw out the Seventeen from a serious outlook on life into light-hearted interludes.

A feature that clearly distinguishes these partners is their form of speech. While the single force controlling the Three is one of the outstanding speech vibrations, none of those comprising the Seventeen is conducive to richness and fluency of speech. Threes are great talkers who experience no difficulty imparting their thoughts on others. Conversation does not languish when a Three is part of a group. They can be depended upon to introduce topics of conversation and take a leading part in their discussion. Seventeens are reluctant to reveal their thoughts and feelings. They overcome this problem by putting their thoughts in a nutshell while Threes may often lose themselves in an excess of verbiage. While the Seventeen may often become irritated by the Three’s talkative habits they will always benefit from their sense of humour and absence of moodiness. The Three, in turn, should not take the Seventeen’s insistence on periods of silence as a form of ill feeling, but instead correctly interpret and appreciate the Seventeen’s periodic need for introspective pleasures. The body language of the Three discloses an unusual combination of friendliness and authority, while that of the Seventeen shows distance and authority. Seventeens are easily bored by trivial topics of conversation and resort to a habit of getting lost in thought, and as a result, lose track of what is being said around them. A Three partner, who always insists on being heard finds this habit most aggravating.

In their spare time these partners may not always do things as a pair. They are more likely to spend leisure time apart, without feeling guilty about their personal interests. On the contrary, mutual respect will be shown towards each other’s activities. Good literature, inquiry into the deeper meaning of life and open air hobbies, such as gardening will hold the interest of the Seventeen. Aviaries and fish ponds are often found in their gardens. Threes expend their powerful imagination and creative energy in the artistic side of life. They are happiest where there is fun and fellowship. Periods of inactivity will be a real trial. Most of their hobbies will be socially oriented so that their talents as natural entertainers can be used. The non-competitive nature of the 7 vibration within the Seventeen influences the rest of the personality. This often keeps them away from many forms of competitive sport. The Three has no such restriction and their youthful nature has them involved in sport, in one form or another, throughout their lives.

The Three personality may have the benefit of the best speech vibration but the Seventeen is favoured by no less than three of the best financial vibrations. Threes may have a high sense of accuracy and a flair for accountancy or any other profession where accuracy is needed; however, this special talent does not influence the practical aspects of money management in their personal lives. Their natural impatience and enthusiasm for keeping up with everything that is new deprives them of the ability to plan their finances and maintain a course of action up to the maturity of their plans. They choose to spend freely with the optimistic attitude that their finances will always be replenished – and more often than not this does happen. Seventeens, on the other hand, have a highly responsible money sense which is applied in public as well as private life. All three vibrations controlling their personality combine to make them cautious spenders, careful savers and wise investors. Threes and Seventeens should handle their own expenditure as many arguments will arise in a joint arrangement. Threes may regard the Seventeen as mean spenders, but this will be an unfair judgment. Seventeens simply do not indulge in shopping for shopping sake. They purchase only what they need and always demand value for money spent. Their personal wants are much less than those of the Three as they do not feel impelled to keep up with the latest trends or personal adornment.

The contrast between the cheerful and romantic nature of the Three and the serious and reserved nature of the Seventeen will have a strong impact on their intimate lives. There will be advantages as well as disadvantages in this contrast. The joyful and open-hearted disposition of the Three will certainly lift the Seventeen out of a customary seriousness. Seventeens tend to become absorbed in more work and less play, and often the nature of the work taken up by most Seventeens does not allow the entry of light-hearted moments. On the other hand, Threes are always open to gaiety and good humour and choose types of work which give them freedom to express these qualities. In their attempts to influence their Seventeen partners with their romantic ways most Threes will succeed provided they choose the correct time and place to do so. Seventeens are by no means unromantic, but they need to be drawn out of their reserved and often self-conscious behaviour. They should be reminded of their habit of paying too much attention to their careers and hobbies and failure to set aside time to be close to their partners. Three personalities need much more personal attention than do Seventeens. The Seventeen’s ability to judge objectively will give them a quicker understanding of their own nature and of the nature of their Three partners. Threes measure people against themselves and are often misled into wrong interpretations. Understanding the many hidden sides of the Seventeen’s personality will take a genuine effort on the part of the Three. The Seventeen will have the responsibility of exercising greater wisdom, which they undoubtedly possess, and helping the Three gain this understanding.

By virtue of the 1 vibrations and the mature qualities of the 7 and 8, Seventeens are already positive personalities. Threes depend on other areas of their birth date and name to provide the 1 vibration to ensure positivity. Ability to make decisions is the fundamental quality of a positive nature. When both partners have this positive disposition the partnership may be tempestuous but the very fact that they have different personality traits and talents will give them value as a team. Threes and Seventeens will no doubt recognise this, but both may experience difficulty adjusting to an equal partnership as a cooperative attitude is not a quality that is strong in either. In a partnership between a Three and Seventeen in which the Three is born in any month other than the 1st, 10th, 11th, and 12th there will not be a battle of wills as the Seventeen will be much stronger and take charge of all important decisions.

3RD AND 18TH BIRTHDAYS

Some special problems are faced in a partnership in which one partner has a single digit birthday and the other a multiple digit birthday, and which are not found in a partnership where both have a single digit birthday or both have multiple digit birthdays. The 3rd and 18th birthday combination is no exception. The Three personality faces the world through the single observation point and power of expression of the mentally oriented and youthful 3 vibration. This individual may have the assistance of other vibrations in the birth date and name which provide other openings, but these will be secondary to the power of the 3 vibration. The 18th birthday, on the other hand, with the combined force of the 1, 8 and 9 vibrations provides a broader view of life. The personality has the use of three principal observation points and three principal vehicles of expression. A Three partner will find difficulty in understanding the complex elements which make up the Eighteen’s personality; and indeed, due to their ego-centred nature, may not bother to make an effort to do so. The chances are that they will proceed to live their lives according to their own standards set by natural qualities of optimism, freedom, friendliness and the desire for a life filled with pleasurable activity. There is nothing that is grasping or selfish in the nature of the Three, unless one may regard the Three’s need for personal attention as too demanding. The greater wisdom of the Eighteen will have no difficulty understanding the less complicated Three partner; but beyond an understanding of the Three’s nature the Eighteen will not have much control over a positive Three partner, much as they may try to do. A negative Three, however, will easily fall under the influence of the powerful Eighteen. No Eighteen personality can be negative by reason of a lack of willpower, good self-image and self-confidence. The presence of the 1 vibration in a position of considerable strength ensures a positive nature.

In many ways the single Eight personality may be regarded as the ‘elder brother’ of the single One. Several characteristics they have in common are, however, not of the same degree of merit or demerit. While 1 characteristics manifest at a primal stage, 8 characteristics, by successive stages of development, have reached a mature and rounded-off state. For instance, the plain One’s preoccupation with their own personality and personal affairs has long emerged in the Eight personality from these self-centred habits into an attunement with the vibrations of those around them. Autocratic leadership qualities of the One are tempered by sensitivity and a keen sense of justice. Individual effort is replaced by good organisation, good example and a talent for delegation of responsibility. The combination of the powers of the 1 and 8 in the 18th birthday produces a person of extraordinary leadership and organising capacity. While the 1 provides willpower and a strong self-image, the ‘senior’ qualities of the 8 override brash characteristics of the single 1. Furthermore, there is the 9 vibration underlying the 1 and 8. This, in fact, forms the corner-stone of the personality. Unlike some other multiple birthdays which have conflicting vibrations, the three vibrations within the 18th integrate in a manner which greatly strengthens the personality. The 1 and 8 share common ground in practical, material and realistic values. The 8 and 9, due to certain dualistic aspects of the 8, share common ground in emotional life giving the personality a sense of natural justice and humanitarian attitudes. An unusual feature of the superior potential of an Eighteen is the capacity to satisfy a selfish and altruistic need by a single action.

Both partners are natural leaders who automatically resist direct commands. While the leadership qualities of the positive Three are strong, those of the Eighteen are even stronger. Both partners will insist on making their own decisions and show intolerance towards contrary opinions. Their first reaction will be to reject pressures or demands either has not initiated themselves. They are so certain of their own ground that they will resist giving each other a hearing. In the frequent clash of wills that will take place between an Eighteen and a positive Three, the Eighteen will display greater persistence and determination to gain their point of view. Their innate sense of justice and fair play will however influence the eventual result. A patient Three (unfortunately there are not many) can easily break down the attack and defence of an Eighteen by wisely evoking the compassionate side of their nature. Eighteens put their heart, minds and strong physical bodies into whatever they do. Their infectious enthusiasm motivates those around them to perform beyond their normal inclinations. While not sparing their own energies, they set out to extract the best they can get out of those under their direction. This is a quality which makes the Eighteen successful leaders, organisers, teachers and coaches.

An Eighteen homemaker will be competent, well organised and house-proud. They will also be authoritarian, hardworking and ambitious for the material success of family members. They cannot, however, be restricted to household duties. Their talents and ambitions will not let them sit back while a partner provides the family’s needs. Their natural element is the mainstream of public life, either in business or in a career that brings out their talents for organisation and administration. Homemaking is not a specialty of the Three personality either. They are essentially career persons whose versatility of talent seeks freedom of expression in several directions. They perform at their best in positions which provide scope for self-expression as creative and performing artists. Their sense of detail and accuracy can also be used in accountancy and their extraordinary gift of speech and flair for showmanship can be directed into politics, the law or religious ministry. A household with luxuries of the best quality will be the outcome of the high earning capacity of both partners.

Their home will be a busy one as much of their time will be spent in public life and in social activities. Though neither partner is susceptible to the influence of others or to the wind of circumstance, they have several extroverted characteristics that promote goodwill and friendship. They interact with each other and in groups without extinguishing their identities as individuals. They experience no anxiety facing new situations and new company. However, both partners will need to work upon themselves in order to be able to abide by consensus of opinion and adapt to cooperative behaviour. This applies not only in their own social programming but also in their general social conduct. All Eighteens and positive Threes effortlessly hold the centre of attention. A Three who is negatively inclined can do just as well, but their performance may be spoilt by egoistic displays. While Eighteens generally have control over themselves, they are not entirely free from impulsive bouts of behaviour which are out of character with their usual way of doing things. Extra sensitivity adds more stresses to their social and public life. They also possess certain personality traits that lead them to experience a high degree of frustration when others do not measure up to their standards. They are not very stimulating company when they go through these phases of behaviour. These emotional disturbances are usually the cause of their periodic and selective sociability, as compared with the Three’s sustained sociability. The Three is not free from emotional tumult, but they are able to gain relief through interaction with people while the Eighteen seeks isolation until their feelings settle down to normal.

Their method of oral communication shows noticeable differences. The Three finds pleasure in speech during their emotional ‘highs’ and relief during their ‘lows’, while Eighteens are commanding speakers during their ‘highs’ but if they fall into their ‘lows’ they soon resort to silence and introverted behaviour. While fluency of speech is unrestricted in the Three, the eloquence of the 9 vibration in the Eighteen is restrained by the forthright and plain-spoken habits of the 1 and 8 vibrations. This takes off some of the sparkle and imagination that is characteristic of the mental numbers 3, 6 and 9. The Three’s free and open sense of humour will not always be taken in the spirit in which it is given by the sensitive Eighteen. This partner may often become irritated by the Three’s need to maintain a constant flow of talk. The more negative Threes are full of opinions and given to rambling conversation which the practical nature of the Eighteen will find intolerable. Threes should know when to stop if they wish to be heard by their Eighteen partners.

Threes and Eighteens will certainly find sympathetic ground in the wide field of sport; though once again, personality differences will be observed in their general attitudes. While the Three personality is certainly competitive, the Eighteen is competitive as well as combative. Most Threes become involved in sport for the love of the game and participation in the social aspects of sport. Eighteens aim at victory for its own sake. Their instinctive reaction to winning or losing is much more amplified than those of the Three. The social aspects of the game take up a distant second place. As they play to win at all costs their subsequent moods following a win or a loss have a direct influence on their family life. Apart from a common interest in sport, these partners may not do much else as a twosome. In their spare time they may find each other’s presence restricting. The Three will have a greater variety of interests as this partner will make sure that responsibilities of public life do not interfere with personal pleasures. The Eighteen on the other hand may let the reverse situation take place and consequently have precious little time left for personal outlets and family togetherness.

The 1 and 8 vibrations in the 18th birthday are among the most gainful and responsible financial vibrations. Value consciousness, attachment to wealth and the power that it brings are among the chief characteristics acquired through these vibrations. At the same time, the influence of the open-handed 9 vibration at fundamental levels of the personality breaks down elements of acquisitiveness and possessiveness, and introduces counteracting qualities of charity and generosity. The Eighteen may be regarded as well-balanced and trustworthy in regard to all financial matters. Any form of partnership will be in good hands with this personality in charge of expenditure. The 3 vibration provides tremendous earning capacity but not an appreciation for the value of money. The Three has no further need for money beyond its use for the satisfaction of personal wants. They are free spenders who have no attachment to money as a means of power or security. Their natural optimistic views on life prevents feelings of mistrust and anxiety over their financial future from gaining a hold on them.

The average Eighteen personality is open to certain habits that are not likely to conform with the romantic notions of a Three partner. Their tendency to become over-dedicated to regular work or an avocation, with little time and energy left for close family relations could become a major problem. They are also likely to introduce into family life the same discipline, ambition and efficiency they expect from others in public life. Without being conscious of doing so, they will attempt to manage the lives of their loved ones. These tendencies are certain to upset the less stringent lifestyle favoured by the Three. The absence of the same degree of light-hearted romanticism will be a significant factor that may create some distance between these partners. Individuals such as the Eighteen, who have an excess of authoritative elements in their nature, are accustomed to bottle up their feelings. They are not always able to express emotion through touching and other forms of endearment. However, running parallel to this characteristic is their awareness and consideration for the needs of others. This is made evident in their high sense of duty which they convert into many practical ways. Although the Three may be intellectually aware of the Eighteen’s emotional needs they may not always reciprocate the same empathy displayed by the Eighteen. Both partners will need to overcome their reluctance to discuss emotionally charged issues before they gain good rapport with one another. Self-oriented behaviour of the Three and authoritative ways of the Eighteen are more likely to lead to competitive and divisive behaviour than to the application of a team-spirit.

Eighteens and positive Threes will have several personality adjustments to make before they team up successfully, If this can be done, the partnership will develop into one of tremendous strength and productivity. In a partnership in which the Three partner is born in any month other than the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months there is an easier chance for a good team to be formed as the Three will be less adamant in maintaining an equal or superior position and will be more amenable to the responsible leadership of the Eighteen.

3RD AND 19TH BIRTHDAYS

The odd numbers conspicuous in both birthdays represent active vibrations, as opposed to the receptive nature of even numbers. While the 3rd day of the month has the concentrated influence of the 3 vibration, the 19th has the cumulative effect of the 1 and 9. People born on the 3rd day of the month are not always seen with 3 characteristics manifesting in positive ways. For the Three personality to do so the 1 vibration, which is the motivating factor behind all growth and advancement, is needed in the birth month, or in one or more of the other spheres of influence. If not, negative 3 traits may emerge to inhibit the expression of many outstanding 3 qualities. People born on the 19th enter this world equipped with the strong motivational force of the 1, as well as the comprehensive qualities of the advanced 9 vibration. Their positivity is already secured not only by the presence of the 1 in the foreground of the personality but also at fundamental levels. The 19th day produces a One personality as this number reduces to 1 (1+ 9 = 10 = 1). Though the Nineteen personality is in fact a One, all 1 qualities are greatly enriched by the influence of the 9 vibration. The characteristics of the 1 vibration are related to the beginning of human experience and those of the 9, to the completion of human experience. The essential nature of the former is substantially ego-centred and self-seeking, while that of the latter is selfless and world-centred. A mixture of ingenuity and wisdom results when the 1 and 9 vibrations work in unison in the Nineteen personality. In particular, the egocentricity of the plain One is replaced in the Nineteen/One by the humanitarian outlook of the 9 vibration. The relationship between a Three and a Nineteen/One will be different to that between a Three and a plain One.

The characteristic of ego-centredness natural to the plain One is also found in the Three personality. A partnership between a Three and a Nineteen will therefore be one between an individual who relates self to all things and all things to self, and another who can emerge out of self-orientation and view life on a much broader spectrum. The self-centredness of the Three has an emotional basis rather than a material or physical one. All Threes are generous and open-hearted people with little attachment to material things for their own sake. They are ever ready to share their possessions and experiences. Attachment is to their egos and their extraordinary need to feel loved and have their achievements recognised. In positive Threes this trait goes largely unnoticed as their pleasant and entertaining ways obscure much of their ego-centredness. In negative Threes the need for the attention and the adulation of others is just as strong, but their effervescent 3 characteristics are not as easily expressed. As a result, their ego-centredness is exposed when they resort to certain patterns of behaviour, which could be either devious or ostentatious, in order to bolster their egos.

Nineteens are by no means totally selfless and self-sacrificing. They do have a good deal of their attention anchored on self, but their objective ways of thinking and wider perspectives place them on a different dimension to that of subjective Threes. They are more self-sufficient and emotionally better adjusted. The Three needs to first receive the attention and admiration of others before they give of themselves – and they do give a great deal towards uplifting the wellbeing of others. The Nineteen gives first, and without conscious effort on their part receive due recognition and appreciation.

Almost all positive 3 characteristics, such as leadership, originality, creativity, extroversion, imagination, ambition, power with words and artistic talent are contained in the Nineteen through the 1 and 9 vibrations. Most of them, in fact, appear in an enriched form. At the same time many youthful 3 characteristics are rejected by the mature tastes of the Nineteen. There will be little that can be exchanged for mutual benefit, as this partnership will essentially be one between a mentally active but youthful person and a mentally active, but mature personality. Though Threes are self-involved and place great value on their individuality they are at the same time quite dependent on interaction with others. Nineteens risk having to put up with negative 3 qualities such as vanity, pettiness, waste, extravagance, constant talk and cutting criticism. Threes, however, will not be burdened by lingering forms of negativity as there is little room for these forces to enter the Nineteen. Even such negative forces caused by environmental conditioning will eventually be rejected by the Nineteen. Threes may not always appreciate the positive aspects of a Nineteen partner. Though Nineteens may inspire confidence in most other personality types, the Three may consider them to be authoritative and restrictive. They will not readily fit into the scheme of things envisaged by a Nineteen partner. However, the reverse situation is less likely to occur. The lighter touch, natural to the Three, will not respond to the deeper forces of the Nineteen.

To issue instructions and orders is the natural propensity of both Threes and Nineteens. When found too long in a position where they have to await orders and unquestioningly carry them out they become discontented and rebellious. A Three may conform to discipline and rules for a short time, but will not be content to remain in a subordinate position for long. As their natural station is one of leadership they will sooner or later seek to establish themselves in a position of authority, command or pre-eminence. Just as, at a certain stage of their lives, they obeyed rules set by others, they will expect the same response to their instructions and directions. This trait will be carried into any form of partnership they may enter. Difficulties will certainly be encountered in a partnership with a Nineteen. As autocratic leadership is one of the strongest forces of the 1 vibration, this part of the Nineteen partner will reject the Three’s attempts to take charge. This rejection will occur despite the fact that many autocratic ways of the 1 vibration have been tempered by the wisdom of the 9. Furthermore, the 9 vibration, far from being a placid vibration, is in fact one of leadership – but, a leadership by example. The combination of two forms of leadership in the Nineteen will result in this partner eventually taking overall charge of the partnership. This will take place without friction with a negative Three but, with a positive Three, a constant clash of wills can be expected.

The authoritative nature of these partners, displayed in their individual style, can be seen in the way they carry themselves. There is a degree of jauntiness in the carriage of the Three which demonstrates their optimism, love of life and belief that the world revolves around them. The natural posture of the Nineteen shows a combination of authority and wisdom which draws the attention of people. Neither of these personalities will be found in a slumping position; nor will they be found leaning against posts or furniture indicating that they are looking for support for feelings of inadequacy or timidity.

Both partners are career-oriented. They may unavoidably compete with each other as both have high ambition and the capacity to fulfil their ambitions. They need financial independence and the challenges found in interaction with people in public life. They usually achieve success and fame in politics, the professions and in Government Service. The domestic side of life will not receive the dedication of either partner. Assistance of a third party will be required for management of household responsibilities.

Among several points of resemblance between individuals ruled by the mentally based 3 and 9 vibrations, extroversion and sociability are among the most prominent. Consequently, the Three personality and the Nineteen will find compatible interests in their social life. Though both are socially well adjusted and should enjoy an active social life, the Nineteen has greater self-sufficiency and therefore less dependence on friends and acquaintances. They gain social popularity without too much effort on their part. Threes, on the other hand, set out to gain popularity due to an inner anxiety of being overlooked. This anxiety is really unfounded as most Threes gain popularity by just being their lively selves. In their choice of company Threes and Nineteens will not show much dissimilarity. Both will choose to move in artistic circles, and especially with people who have developed the art of good conversation. Threes, however, are more party-minded and are inclined to prolong their stay. They are not time-conscious when enjoying themselves; nor will they realise that they may be overstaying their welcome. Their Nineteen partners will have the troublesome duty of calling an end to their enjoyment.

With no hint of shyness in their manner both partners are articulate talkers with the potential to become eloquent speech makers. Threes gain a reputation as entertaining and humorous conversationalists, while Nineteens become known as knowledgeable communicators. Though both are able to verbalise their thoughts and feelings, the Nineteen has greater control over the power of speech, especially the ability to contain anger in the face of frustration. This has the inevitable result of increasing their verbal effectiveness. Many Threes damage their capacity to reach others by talking too much. They should know when to stop talking if they wish to be heard by their Nineteen partners. The Nineteen, at the same time, should understand that the Three’s vivid imagination and natural talents as an entertainer make them express their thoughts in dramatic and colourful language. They cannot resist adding a bit here and there and colouring the truth a bit in order to come up with an entertaining story. For a verbal contest to be set on reasonably equal terms the Three partner will need to be a positive personality. If not, the Nineteen will always have the upper hand. A positive Three will, in the short term, win a contest, but the greater staying power and wisdom of the Nineteen will prevail in the long term.

Both partners will pick their hobbies and leisure activities from mentally oriented pursuits. Their professional and social life will be closely associated with many of their leisure activities. Due to this common ground they will choose to spend their leisure together without feeling restrained or hemmed in by an excess of each other’s company. If they resist the temptation to compete with one another, and instead pool their resources, they will make a very successful team that will not only provide mutual pleasure but will also benefit many others. Some areas in which they can combine successfully as a team will be as musicians, entertainers, hosts and hostesses, painters and art critics, choreographers, decorators, florists, designers, social editors, evangelists, poets and office bearers in social and sporting clubs.

Another factor held in common by people influenced by the 3 and 9 vibrations is their indifference to money and material possessions for their own sake. The generous disposition of their mentally oriented natures is responsible for this non-attachment. However, the control of financial and material aspects of a Three/Nineteen partnership will not fall into unsafe hands as the Nineteen is a One personality and the financial side of life will be guided by the influence of the 1 vibration. This vibration provides a trustworthy attitude towards money management. Those influenced by this vibration are value conscious and often closefisted, except when they turn to self-indulgence. The 9 vibration within the Nineteen breaks down self-interest and introduces a benevolent and humanitarian attitude towards expenditure. The combination of 1 and 9 qualities in the Nineteen ensures responsible and fair management of the partnership’s finances. The Three partner will be capable of high earning power and contributing generously to the family budget, but will not show skill in budgeting, saving and general good management of personal or family finances. As long as a generous share of money is available for personal needs, the Three should not interfere in the Nineteen’s control of their finances.

Life’s responsibilities and life’s pleasures are taken in the same spirit of enthusiasm and optimism by most Threes. One aspect is not neglected in favour of the other. As they are flexible and changeable in their attitude towards work and play they are able to mix the two without causing disorientation in their lives. In their intimate lives they could make demands at times when the attention of their Nineteen partner is directed on other matters. Their bright imagination, love of beauty, love of excitement and fluent oral expression make them true romantics. Being always young at heart their love life is kept alive and never allowed to lapse into staleness. Nineteen partners should be able to keep up with these romantic Threes in the mutual enjoyment of an exciting love life. Although the 1 vibration has few romantic notions it does have a vigorous and adventurous spirit. The 9 vibration in the Nineteen will provide the sentimental and imaginative qualities similar to the 3. Flirtatious behaviour found in many Threes will not be found in the average Nineteen.

While all Nineteens are assuredly positive personalities, Threes may also be regarded as being so, provided they are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months which contribute the activator 1 vibration. Threes born in other months are exposed to the negative traits of the 3 vibration. Personality clashes are inevitable between Nineteens and positive Threes. Compatibility can only be achieved by several personality adjustments and sharing of responsibility and authority. Compatibility will be much easier between a Nineteen and a Three partner who is not wholly positive. These Threes will sooner or later acknowledge the greater stability and authority of the Nineteen.

3RD AND 20TH BIRTHDAYS

The 20th day of the month produces a Two personality in whom characteristics of the 2 vibration are intensified. The relationship between a Three personality and a Twenty will be very much the same as the relationship between a Three and a straight Two, born on the 2nd. The chapter on the 2nd and 3rd birthdays should be consulted. However, the intensification of 2 characteristics in the Twenty, which is caused by the presence of the Zero, should be kept in mind.

A positive Twenty is one who was born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. A positive Three is also one who was born in one of these months. A combination of these positive types will be compatible and productive. While a certain amount of compatibility will be achieved between partners born outside these months, productivity will be low. The partnership will lack strong leadership, direction and decision. However, in the event of one partner having one of these birth months the partnership will be as compatible and almost as productive as that between two positive partners. The direction of the partnership and decision making role will be in the care of the positive partner. If it happens to be the Three partner greater enterprise and ambition will be displayed due to the natural leadership qualities of the 3 vibration.

For the most part positivity or negativity in a personality is determined by the presence or absence of the active 1 vibration in the birthday or birth month. There are however other spheres of influence that can provide the 1 vibration and help overcome negative traits caused by its absence; the principal negative trait being the lack of self-confidence.

3RD AND 21ST BIRTHDAYS

Three personalities are produced by both birthdays – straightforward Threes by the 3rd and qualified Threes by the 21st. The nature of the relationship between people born on these days will be nearly the same as that between those born on the 3rd and 12th. The chapter on these birthdays should be referred to.

The difference between the 12th and 21st birthdays is seen in the degree of influence of the 2 vibration. The first number of any birth date has the strongest influence. The 2 vibration is the second number in the 12th and therefore its receptive forces become subject to the combined influence of the active 1 and 3 vibrations. As the 2 is the first number in the 21st, its influence is not as easily subdued by the 1/3 combination. While remaining essentially an active Three personality, the Twenty-One may be taken as having stronger receptive forces than the Twelve.

Twenty-Ones are already positive people. Their positivity is gained from the 1 vibration. Their Three partners depend on the birth month or other significant areas of their name for positive attributes contributed by the 1 vibration. When this is not found in any degree of strength the Twenty-One partner will play the leading role. The form of leadership assumed by the Twenty-One will be more democratic than autocratic. This personality will be prepared to rule by consensus rather than by dogmatic rules. The Three partner’s views will be given consideration and often accepted.

An undoubtedly positive Three is one born in the 1st, 10th, 11th, or 12th months. These Threes will eventually form equal partnerships with Twenty-Ones. They may, in the first instance, attempt to take full charge, but the patience, resilience, and diplomacy of the Twenty-One will eventually force the Three to come to terms on an equal basis. The combination of romantic, imaginative and innovative qualities of both partners will result in a very successful and productive partnership.

3RD AND 22ND BIRTHDAYS

In all likelihood the attraction of opposites will cause persons born on these birthdays to get together. The active vibrations of the 3rd day produce mentally oriented, highly imaginative, creative and dynamic personalities. The quality of leadership in one form or another is inherent in all Threes. Either in direct command or as leaders of society, fashion, style or artistic expression, they occupy positions in the foreground of activity. Their extroverted nature, quick minds and extraordinary fluency of speech are some of their most marketable qualities. On the other side of the coin, as it were, Threes are emotionally vulnerable, dependent on the care and attention of loved ones and weak in practical aptitudes. The Twenty-Two personality contains the emotionally oriented 2 vibration in double strength, and the physically based 4 vibration. Interaction of these receptive vibrations gives considerable practical ability and emotional stability in positive Twenty-Twos. Those who are negatively inclined retain practical ability but lose their emotional stability. Direct leadership qualities, distinctive of the Three, are replaced by an exceptional talent for planning and organisation. Extroverted performance in the forefront of affairs is substituted for constructive and productive activity from a less prominent position. While the Three revels in popularity and ego-centred behaviour, Twenty-Twos are in their element when deeply involved in some practical project. They shy away from exhibition of their egos or achievements. While Threes never lose their sense of identity as individuals, the Twenty-Two can easily merge their individuality in their dedication to a cause and into the greater scheme of things. This attitude will be most prominent when a Twenty-Two operates near to the powers of the master vibration. The 22 is the leading master number which contains the qualities of all other numbers. Subjects of a 22nd birthday may be taken as representing one or the other of two vibratory forces, or a mixture of the two. They could be living up to the levels of the unreduced master number or at the lower level of a reduced 4. The former state is exceptional. The latter is the usual condition of Twenty-Twos who are not positively structured. Positive Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, can fluctuate between the level of the 22 and the level of the 4.

Initial moves to advance their relationship will certainly be made by the adventuresome Three. The degree of compatibility between a Three and a Twenty-Two will depend on the degree of positivity or negativity possessed by them. The presence of the 1 vibration in their birth months will ensure that the Three vibrates for the most part to positive Three qualities and the Twenty-Two has the opportunity to reach up to the potential of the master vibration. When Twenty-Twos do not live up to the powers of the master vibration and revert to the virtues of the practical 4, the partnership becomes a Three/ Four combination. However, it will not be the same as one between a Three and a Four born on the 4th day. A Twenty-Two/Four is really a complex Four formed by the double 2. This vibration will never cease to influence the personality. Some degree of attraction towards the power of the master vibration can always be expected. A Twenty-Two/Four will be more versatile and flexible than a straightforward Four.

The strength of the 2 vibration ensures qualities such as diplomacy, tact, patience and cooperation in all Twenty-Twos. These qualities prevent any form of direct confrontation with a Three partner for the assumption of the authoritative role in the partnership. The Three will be allowed considerable leeway in this direction which will turn to the advantage of both partners. The Twenty-Two, when they choose to do so, will get their own way by using the ample subtle and persuasive powers at their disposal. To the satisfaction of both, the partnership could easily form into one in which the Three outwardly takes a leading role and the Twenty-Two in discreet ways also plays a significant part in their life together. Here again, the degree to which each partner will have control and decision making will depend on the degree of positivity or negativity in their make-up.

The attraction of opposites results in couples finding themselves with partners who approach life with different attitudes. High ambition, self-expression in various directions on the mental plane and the desire for interaction with imaginative people, are among the Three’s most cherished needs. A wide field of opportunity is sought for experiencing these needs. The domestic scene with all its varied responsibilities is not seen as providing these opportunities or as a rewarding occupation. Threes, therefore, do not take naturally to a domestic mode of life. Their lack of practicality and dislike of routine and manual tasks also contribute to their avoidance of domestic responsibilities. They are clearly career and socially oriented people who depend on a partner or paid help to look after domestic matters. Twenty-Twos who operate on the 4 vibration will fit into this position willingly and efficiently. They are capable of undertaking dual roles of working at home and taking up responsibility in public life. Free from the distractions of a powerful imagination which pulls a Three in all directions, the Twenty-Two is able to concentrate on routine and practical tasks, and organise their lives with greater efficiency. A Twenty-Two who operates close to the master vibration will refuse to be completely tied down to domesticity. The dynamic forces within steer them into public life. However, unlike their Three partners they are capable of undertaking full-time public duties and taking care of household responsibilities. The ideal situation will still be for outside help to be brought in for routine household tasks.

The extroverted nature of both partners should guarantee a pleasurable and congenial social life. The fact that they look at the world from different observation points can be used for mutual benefit rather than to their disadvantage. Threes are natural entertainers. Their outgoing nature, backed by their powerful imagination and constant need for self-expression draw them inevitably into the centre of activity. No Three person can be relegated to the background for long. They will use positive or negative ways to impress their presence on company, or draw attention to themselves. Positive Threes are usually the life of a party, and in their interaction with others, they gain as much enjoyment as they give out. Negative Threes may push their egos a little too earnestly and despite natural talent as entertainers, acquire some degree of unpopularity. While Threes set out to enjoy themselves and give enjoyment to others by their natural friendliness, Twenty-Twos assume less conspicuous roles as spectators, helpers and organisers. While the 3 vibration produces solo players, the 2 and 4, either individually or in a combined form, produce group performers. The average Twenty-Two will be found as an essential part of a group. However, a Twenty-Two motivating near the power of the master vibration is capable of assuming any leading role in social or public life. More often than not Threes create a set of vibrations within a group and a Twenty-Two partner may be content to tune into this set of vibrations. The distinctive atmosphere created by the good humour, hospitality, friendliness, and imagination of the Three combine splendidly with the calm demeanour, helpfulness and practicality of the Twenty-Two to produce a socially successful couple. One could generalise and say that the Three, not only in social life but also in other areas as well, is an individual of activity, while the Twenty-Two is always one of action. Twenty-Twos do not act merely for the sake of action or for the exhilaration or the plaudits such action may bring, but instead also act for social ends that are usually beyond self-interest.

The Three’s powerful imagination finds effortless release through an extraordinary gift of speech and a rich spoken and singing voice. They are able to vocalise their thoughts and enunciate their words with fluency and self-confidence. This is another aid to their social popularity. They are leading conversationalists showing a perennial sense of good humour. Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, reflect the manner of practical people. Although by no means tongue-tied, they confine their speech to practical issues. They are good listeners who complement well with their loquacious Three partners. There is an intuitive wisdom in most Twenty-Twos by which things are known to them without any need for analysis, discussion or explanation. Threes may not have the same subtleties of feeling and their sharp sense of humour may not always be appreciated. They should be careful how they tease a Twenty-Two partner as the sensitivity of the Twenty-Two could make them react unfavourably to the most light-hearted remark.

Time does not hang heavy with these personality types. Not only do they keep themselves busy in public life, but they also use their leisure time in a variety of activities. Their days are seldom long enough. They are not dependent on action as a twosome as they possess the mental and emotional balance to give themselves a proportionate amount of togetherness and separatism. However there should be no need for their interests to diverge to any considerable extent as this could be to their disadvantage. Although each partner is capable of striking out alone, the combination of the Three’s imagination and the Twenty-Two’s practicality will open out a wider array of responses to their environment and create a stronger combination of talent. The fine sensibility of both partners – the Three being of a mental nature and the Twenty-Two of an emotional nature – will find rewarding outlets in music, literature, painting, sculpture, decoration and in any other artistic form.

While acting on the positive side of their numbers these partners show no attachment to money or material goods for their own sake. Gainful interaction with people is a much higher priority than the accumulation of material wealth. Both have generous and free spending habits. Threes spend more on themselves and less on others, while self-sacrificing habits are usual with the more impersonal Twenty-Twos. Threes maintain a high profile in private and public life and to do so successfully, personal expenses are always high. The Twenty-Two has the combined influence of the thrifty 4 vibration and also of the generous and impressionable 2. More often than not, the influence of the 2 is stronger than that of the 4. This is especially so when the Twenty-Two leans towards the influence of the master vibration. The spiritual element that is introduced creates an impersonal outlook on life. Personal needs are subordinated by their sympathy for needy humanity. Much of their money and time may be spent on one or more charitable or relief organisation. Selfishness takes over when Threes and Twenty-Twos motivate on the negative side of their vibrations. Self-indulgence by the Threes will be greatly increased and the energies of the Twenty-Twos will be applied to the acquisition of personal wealth and power. The humanitarian touch will be lost.

Vanity is a sensitive point in the character of the Three personality of which the Twenty-Two will soon take notice. A wise Twenty-Two (most of them possess the rare quality of wisdom) will be careful not to injure the Three’s vanity by neglect, ridicule, criticism or by any other means. On the contrary, most Twenty-Twos will realise that the easiest way to remain close to their Three partners is to nourish their egos in various subtle ways. They are more perceptive of the needs of others and are prepared to offer service and comfort. Also, their levels of tolerance are higher than most other personality types. All Twenty-Twos, having sensitive temperaments, possess psychic and intuitive qualities which they use both consciously and unconsciously. However, this sensitivity has negative aspects too. It adds stresses to the life of the Twenty-Two which others, especially Three partners, do not feel. It also contributes to false interpretations of the behaviour and motives of others, which consequently makes them inaccurately critical in judgment.

The element of romance is built into the character of both parties. This will enrich their intimate lives. Unless introduced by environmental causes, neither partner should possess any form of inhibition in sexual activity. In fact, the active vibrations of the Three and the receptive vibrations of the Twenty-Two should ensure real compatibility in their physical relations.

An ideal partnership will be formed when both partners are positive personalities. Not only will these partners become friends as well as lovers, but also the partnership itself will be extremely productive. Help in the domestic scene will be needed so that both may give of their best to the world at large. In the event of one partner only being of a positive nature the partnership could be as successful, as this positive partner will take over the role of leader and decision maker. If both partners are negatively inclined the partnership will lack direction.

3RD AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS

The 3rd day of the month produces a personality with concentrated or indivisible characteristics of the 3 vibration. Depending on the vibrations contained in the rest of the birth date and the name, the personality structure may be formed by positive or negative aspects of this vibration, or by a mixture of the two. Also, other facets to the integral personality may be acquired from these areas. However, primary 3 characteristics will always remain the principal force, and whatever the integral composition may be, the Three personality can easily be identified by prominent 3 characteristics such as sociability, extroversion, imagination, versatility, generosity, optimism and fluency of speech. Subjects of the 23rd birthday are influenced by three vibrations and therefore fall into a category of complex personalities. They are not as easily identified as personalities with single digit birthdays such as the Three. The integral Twenty-Three is the result of interaction between the 2, 3 and 5 vibrations. Although Twenty-Threes are basically Five personalities they do not act as clear Fives. The 2 and 3 vibrations play a significant formative part in their development. To their considerable advantage, the three vibrations have more complementary and reciprocal features than those that may be incompatible. Their sympathetic interaction does not give rise to any conflicting desires and characteristics within the personality. They intermingle in a manner that produces a personality of tremendous vitality, curiosity, versatility, adaptability, alertness, extroversion and imagination. At the same time, there are no built-in safeguards against excess of some familiar traits such as changeability, restlessness and talkativeness. The Twenty-Three also depends on other numbers of the birth date and name for positive or negative expression of their personality features. The presence of the 1 vibration in other areas of influence plays a significant role in determining the degree of self-confidence, self-esteem, clear direction and the ability to make their own decisions.

The Three personality has many features in common with the Twenty-Three. This is so, not only because the Twenty-Three contains the 3 vibration, but also because the 2 and 5 vibrations have several characteristics similar to those of the 3, such as sociability and extroversion. Threes and Twenty-Three personalities may look at life from generally similar points of view but their levels of energy and capacity to extend themselves into a wider variety of activity vary considerably. Enriched by the combination of three complementary vibrations the Twenty-Three can contain or match the Three in all things, but the Three will not be able to contain the Twenty-Three. In other words, whatever the Three can do, the Twenty-Three can also do, and much else besides. The Twenty-Three is able to see a broader picture of life as their attention, unlike the Three, who is not entirely anchored on themselves. They are less egocentric in their thought processes. However, as the Three’s horizons are more bounded and held more or less within a set range of vibratory frequencies, they are subject to fewer distractions. Despite a restless mind, Threes find it easier to concentrate and maintain a steady course of action. Predisposition for variety and change natural to both partners is much stronger in the Twenty-Three. If the restless nature of this personality is not controlled it will act to the disadvantage of aspects of life which call for security, stability and permanence. They could be all aglow with enthusiasm and start things well but quite frequently fail to finish them. Their Three partners, who will be engaged in their own affairs, cannot be expected or depended upon to complete these undertakings. A partnership between a Three and Twenty-Three will hardly be an even match. The attraction of opposite, or active/receptive magnetism, which so often brings people together is not likely to take place as both personalities are governed by active vibrations. (The receptive 2 in the Twenty-Three is not strong enough to overcome the combined force of the 3 and 5) They are also hardly likely to be attracted to each other on the basis of similarities. While they do possess similar tastes for social activity and artistic outlets they do not share other features such as domesticity, self-sacrifice, cooperation and practicality, which are needed to cement a permanent relationship. Individual self-expression is a more urgent need than self-sacrifice and cooperative living. In the unlikely event of these individuals forming a relationship many adjustments to their socially oriented lifestyle will be essential for it to succeed.

For spontaneous demonstration of their emotions the Three will need outlets provided by other areas in the birth date and name. Whether these outlets are available or not, the emotional expression of Threes will not be equal to that of the Twenty-Three who already possesses two strong outlets for such expression. While the Three is confined within the range of the mentally oriented 3 vibration, the greater part of the Twenty-Three is controlled by the emotional 2 and 5 vibrations. Twenty-Threes are also liable to have their emotions intensified and turned into negative forms of expression if the birth month also contains emotional numbers. All Twenty-Threes will be more emotionally accessible and emotionally animated than their Three partners. They have a greater awareness of how others feel and what they really need. Threes may be intellectually aware of the Twenty-Three’s emotional needs but this type of awareness may not be sufficient to prompt them into sympathetic and sentimental action towards their partners. The Twenty-Three, on the other hand, has the capacity to actually feel the needs of the Three, or that of anyone else. Their sensitivity enhances extrasensory perception so that very little passes their observation. Due to their keener subtleties of feeling they are more affected than the Three by the vibrations of those around them. These qualities make most Twenty-Threes natural actors and actresses.

Although the leadership qualities of their vibrations are enjoyed by both, neither partner will show any great desire to enter into a fierce contest for the role of leader in domestic matters. Personal freedom and individual self-expression are more important than the self-sacrifice and responsibilities associated with the domestic role. One will expect the other to undertake the practical and day-to-day tasks. As these duties cannot be avoided, opinions and decisions will be put forward by both partners and not always followed by action. They will resent having to abide by routine and timetables. Frequent arguments may give rise to disharmony and disorganisation. Regularity and efficiency will seldom be found in their domestic affairs. They will usually find themselves in a position where progress in their personal relations is slowed down by domestic strife. Theirs will be a busy home with an excess of movement, speed, outside activity and precious little time for togetherness.

These are essentially career oriented individuals who could have more than one interest going at any given time. A Three or Twenty-Three who remains in one job or pursues a single career during a working life will be a rare exception. They are not always successful in the business of buying and selling unless they are supported by partners who are trained in money management, quantity surveying and general business principles. They are better equipped for business in the entertainment world. Here again, support of a good accountant and office manager will be essential. All forms of entertainment and amusement are areas in which these partners can profitably combine their talents, their spirit of enterprise and their personal popularity. The Twenty-Three, in particular, will display good organising ability, but essential routine tasks should be taken over by assistants.

The social life of both Threes and Twenty-Threes will take priority over other activities. In their endless search for distraction and the social limelight the domestic scene and their personal relations will be given little attention. Their business life may not suffer the same neglect as the chances are that most of their social activities will involve business associates and business interests.

A flair for showmanship natural to both will bring them into competition with each other at social gatherings. They may find each other’s company somewhat restrictive. Both will seek the centre of attention in any scene as they cannot be relegated to the background. A little loneliness, isolation or occasional inactivity will be too much for either to bear for long; also neither will be able to put up with dull or boring people or unchanging conditions. Clarity of speech is a quality with which both are gifted. Threes express themselves through mental flexibility and power with words. Twenty-Threes communicate, not only with these qualities, but also with meaningful gestures, including the medium of touch. Their body language makes them appealing and convincing speakers. Both partners are splendid conversationalists. They can be full of opinions, and in their efforts to steal attention from each other they may frequently cut into each other’s speech. They have a sharp sense of humour and know how to laugh and how to create laughter in others. Above all, when they stop competing with each other, they are able to laugh together and at each other. They are free and open personalities who are able to express what they feel, and consequently do not hold grudges against each other or anyone else. They are able to quarrel without holding bitterness afterwards. To look forward to new experiences is far more attractive to them than living in or contemplating past experiences, whether pleasurable or distasteful.

As these are not personalities who are dependent on one another’s company, they could unwittingly spend their leisure time in separate activities. However, this is another scene in which there will be no need for them to go separate ways in order to give each other room. Their tastes and talents are so similar that they could combine in many supportive and productive ways.

With minds and bodies that are free, energetic and uncommitted, both partners will be attracted to sport especially open-air activities, and the social life associated with them. Several other hobbies will hold their mutual interest and these will be found in the world of music, drama, literature and all the fine arts. Success in any one or more of these areas could be turned into income earning ventures.

As both partners rate freedom, experience and self-expression higher than security, the financial side of their life together may fluctuate between wealth and penury. Both have the capacity to contribute generously to the finances of the partnership. However, their expenses will always be high and money will go out as fast as it comes in. Neither partner will be really concerned with building up and maintaining a permanent savings account. Any money put away will be for a specific purpose such as a holiday or the purchase of a luxury item. They are not types that will shop around for bargains or insist on getting full value for their money. They will seldom question a price tag as their desire to possess the article itself is stronger than their attachment to the money they give out. Money is regarded as only a means by which they can satisfy their many wants. Financial difficulties could contribute considerably to discord and argument in this partnership.

Both Threes and Twenty-Threes are enthusiastic about life and seek to get the best they can out of it. Free from feelings of guilt for any form of self-indulgences they take experiences as they come without pondering over them. They are free personalities who, without complaint, should be able to accept each other’s individuality and desire for freedom of expression. However, an anomaly may appear in their role expectations. On the one hand they instinctively reject dependent and clinging partners, especially those who resort to jealous and suspicious behaviour. On the other hand, their egos are dependent on and are strengthened by the attention and compliments paid to them by their partners. Three personalities are more affected than all other vibrations by this anomaly as their greater degree of ego-centredness will expect more of the Twenty-Three than they themselves are prepared to give. Their exacting nature is based on purely emotional needs and is not to be confused with the desire for material goods. They are quite generous and not attached to material goods. As the Twenty-Three is attuned to the frequencies of sensitive vibrations of the emotional plane a need to demand emotional attention does not really arise. They possess a sensuous nature and personal warmth which naturally attracts the attention of others. Both partners are romantically inclined and are not averse to flirtatious behaviour. Neither will be inclined to lay down strict rules of conduct they know will not be kept.

The best that can be expected with these personality types is a partnership with loose ties. The relationship will be maintained on an equal footing if both partners have the 1 vibration in the birth month as both will then act on the positive side of their numbers. The 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months provide this vibration. If this vibration is found in the birth year only it may not be strong enough to ensure positive attitudes at all times. In the event of one partner being a positive personality and the other a generally negative one, the partnership will head for trouble from the outset as the positive partner will not be willing to carry the insecurities and inconsistency displayed by the dependent negative partner.

3RD AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS

Interaction of active and receptive vibrations creates the most significant factor in this birthday combination. Not only will the natural attraction of opposites take place between subjects of these birthdays, but other qualities peculiar to the vibrations that control them will be activated to strengthen their initial attraction. For instance, the 3 represents the principal of vibrant youth, and each of the three vibrations forming the 24th day is strong in the qualities of nurturing, guardianship and service. The Three personality, who expects to be taken care of in a variety of ways, will be irresistibly drawn to the fatherly/motherly image projected by the Twenty-Four. In addition, the generally unflappable Twenty-Four will be uplifted and stimulated by the effervescent and vibrant qualities of the Three. Both personalities will, in the long term, benefit from an exchange of opposite characteristics.

Once their honeymoon days have been taken over by the realities of living they have every chance of settling down to a loving and interlocking relationship. The attraction of opposites usually results in couples finding themselves with partners who look at the world from different observation points. This difference will be conspicuous in a Three/Twenty-Four relationship. Recognition of these differences will be the first step towards the adjustments they will need to make to achieve success. Despite the influence of other areas of power in the birth date and name, the personality structure of those born the 3rd day possesses all the essential qualities of the Three vibration. Other areas may add secondary aspects to the integral personality and also determine the degree in which these qualities are used in positive or negative ways. Threes are free and open personalities. They are extroverted, well mannered, dynamic, sociable, optimistic and free from inhibiting qualities such as jealousy, despondency, selfishness and vindictiveness. They set out to experience life in all its phases with a fresh outlook of youthfulness and egocentricity.

Despite the psychological dependence on others they are proud and protective of their freedom and individuality. In whatever circumstances they find themselves they make every effort, both consciously and unconsciously, to gain the centre of attention. When opportunities to occupy centre stage are denied them, they will unhesitatingly set out to create situations that draw the attention of others in their direction. Subtle methods are used by positive Threes and exhibitionist methods by negatives Threes whose reaction, when things go wrong, is to blame others rather than examine the possibility of error on their part. The Twenty-Four personality has none of these self-promoting, self-centred and ostentatious characteristics. They have emerged from egocentricity into community consciousness and become aware of their role as an integral part of society. As a consequence of these different outlooks these partners do not fall into competition with each other. The Twenty-Four will be happy to stand aside and witness the grandstanding of the Three, and even give them some encouragement. They are more likely to assume responsibility for failure than point their finger at others.

Though Twenty-Fours are basically Six personalities (2 + 4 = 6), their characters are formed by the sympathetic blending of the 2, 4, and 6 vibrations. This is a complimentary integration of the emotional 2, the physical 4 and the mental 6. The integral Twenty-Four is thus able to motivate freely between three planes of expression. A better balanced combination of receptive vibrations can hardly be expected as there is no contradiction or opposition in the characteristics of these vibrations. All the Twenty-Four needs is the 1 vibration in the birth month in order to emerge as an exceptionally resourceful individual. The 1 vibration will provide the vitality, self-confidence, and controlled aggressiveness needed for maximum use of the qualities spread over the three planes of expression. If this is not found in the birth month other areas of influence may provide it in adequate strength.

While a positive Three has all the qualities required for decisive leadership a negative Three personality will lack direction and self-confidence. Often these weaknesses will be covered up either by an egotistic and self-promoting façade or by escapist tendencies. They can suffer constant anxiety over a compelling need for popularity and acclaim. This has a direct influence on their decisions relating to the partnership which is bound to interfere with the down-to-earth ways of the pragmatic Twenty-Four. None of the vibrations forming the Twenty-Four is related to instant decision making or to direct leadership. They form personalities who are slow and deliberate thinkers who prefer to live within a preset system of rules and timetables. The 4 and 6 especially keep them in touch with reality so that they are able to see things realistically instead of using highly imaginative or emotionally charged conceptions. As they resent being rushed or influenced by illogical, irresponsible or impractical ideas they perform at their best only under the influence of a stable environment and rational leadership. Caution, common sense and good sense of values govern their thoughts and actions. While not conceiving the image of a leadership role they will instinctively take over most of the practical responsibilities within the partnership and willingly grant their Three partners an outward show of leadership. With a positive Three this will be a comfortable and advantageous arrangement. The Twenty-Four will profit by the Three’s quick decisions, and the Three by the Twenty-Four’s ability to execute their plans. In a partnership with a negative Three the whole process of their lives will be slowed down as the Twenty-Four will be faced with a high degree of inconsistency in the Three’s general conduct. The practical Twenty-Four will be forced to reject many of the Three’s ideas and make decisions of their own. While the restless mind of the Three will find it hard to accommodate to a life tied to domestic responsibilities the quiet mentality and strong hands of the Twenty-Four will adapt to this lifestyle with consummate ease. A stronger combination of domestic vibrations cannot be found in any other personality type. A Three/Twenty-Four combination will be very fortunate if the Three is the principal income earner and the Twenty-Four is the homemaker. In the reverse situation the Twenty-Four will be forced into the dual role of working at a job as well as working at home as the Three partner will not be capable of running a home to the satisfaction of the thorough Twenty-Four. Threes cannot be called upon to adhere to routine, timetables and to essential manual tasks associated with running an efficient home. The natural outlet for a Three personality is a career in which their need for company, and their ambition and imaginative and creative minds can be given full rein. The drive of ambition is not as strong in the Twenty-Four. They are more inclined to take what comes rather than go after opportunity.

Both partners are extroverted personalities, but their type of extroversion differs in both in form and intensity. All Threes are dependent upon social interaction for their happiness. Aloneness or solitude is a state of being they cannot conceive of and loneliness is a condition they cannot put up with. An active social life is expected with a Three partner. While Twenty-Fours enjoy social life they are not dependent on it for their happiness. They find this in other directions, especially in work and community service. At the same time they will gladly partner a Three in moderate social activity. They will act as a good foil for any excess of sociability on the part of the Three. While Threes gain their pleasure as activators and entertainers, Twenty-Fours, by preference, are observers, and true to their realistic nature, find themselves involved in the more practical manner in the lives of other people. While the Three lifts the atmosphere of a party with bright conversation and good humour, the Twenty-Four, with a natural flair for keeping themselves busy, will take charge of essentials such as accommodation, food and beverage. The Three/Twenty-Four partnership can be turned into a splendid host/hostess combination.

One source of trouble in the relationship which should be taken in hand is the careless use by the Three of a wealth and fluency with words. Living as they do in the sphere of imagination Threes could use this gift to excess by talking too much, and often confusing and irritating their less articulate and practical Twenty-Four partners. The Twenty-Four lives, by and large, in the sphere of reality and therefore confines their conversation to practical matters. They are not without the power of speech but instead prefer to dispense with ‘flowery’ speech and prefer to verbalise their thoughts in plain language. Their customary even-tempered and helpful ways can be changed into obstinacy or an aggrieved silence when pushed too far by an excessively vocal Three. They can also become quite argumentative when they choose to confront a Three, but will be no match against the Three’s flexible and cutting use of words. Threes could get carried away and say things unwittingly that will deeply hurt the Twenty-Four. As a means of self-defence, the Twenty-Fours could also resort to moodiness and milder forms of aggression. However, matters need not be allowed to reach a state of hostility as both partners have the ability to communicate without resorting to confrontation or other defensive strategies. Threes can exercise self-control in oral expression and draw upon their innate sense of friendliness and courtesy, and the Twenty-Four can use their cooperative spirit and open themselves to new ideas introduced by the Three. Threes, who are notoriously bad listeners, should also learn to set their egos aside and listen to what is being said by their practical Twenty-Four partners.

The Twenty-Four’s hobbies will usually be centred on the home. Some may potter around fixing things here and there and generally use their time in relaxation and bodily comforts and ease. Others may be more energetic and use natural skills with their hands in mechanics, woodwork, pottery, sculpture, or any other deft-fingered functions such as dress making, knitting and embroidery. All Twenty-Fours will enjoy cooking, collecting recipes and the preparing nutritious diets. It is most unlikely that the Tree partner will associate with The Twenty-Four in the practical aspects of these interests except to contribute opinions from an artistic point of view. They have no desire to spend too much time at home. They need outside interests to keep themselves happy. The Twenty-Four, who does not demand personal freedom, should recognise that the Three needs room for movement. The Three, in return, must appreciate that the Twenty-Four’s natural tendencies resent too far a departure from familiar scenes. They can still maintain a proportionate amount of togetherness and separateness by taking a mutual interest in sport, music, home entertainment and open-air activities. With a little understanding they can counter-check each other and prevent any extremes of behaviour. A balance can be achieved between the Twenty-Four’s attachment to domestic affairs and set habits, and the Three’s attraction to the glitter of social life.

Their attitudes to and methods of handling money will soon reveal that these personalities are direct opposites in this regard. Threes have expensive tastes and are habitually free spenders. They are not attached to money for its own sake as their optimistic views on life do not give rise to fears for their future financial security; nor are they the possessive types who cling on to their possessions. Money does not remain long in their hands and the need for saving, except for very specific purposes, is rarely considered. Twenty-Fours, on the other hand, have economical tastes, and hold a tight rein over expenses. While Threes may fall into debt without undue fear, the Twenty-Four has a horror of heavy or prolonged indebtedness. They are attached to money for the security it ensures, and security in every form is the most essential feature that contributes to their wellbeing. The nature of the collector is introduced into the Twenty-Four by the 2 vibration. A nest egg will be the Twenty-Four’s guarded possession. The Three should be restricted from direct access to the family finances as this partnership will be maintained on a solid financial foundation only when the Twenty-Four takes control of expenditure and saving.

Threes are highly imaginative, experimental and romantic lovers. Their sexuality is directly aroused by their active minds, and their responses to their partner’s needs and demands depend on their mental states. As the Twenty-Four is a combination of physical, emotional and mental elements, their needs and responses are evenly paced, thus obviating the risk of a partner’s advances being rejected if they are not in the mood. They are, however, likely to cling to regular methods of lovemaking in contrast to the imaginative and adventurous Three. The Three usually enjoys the thrill of the chase and therefore should not be pursued. There is little danger of this happening as it is not in the nature of the receptive Twenty-Four to do the pursuing. They will always be more accommodating in their intimate lives and avoid situations that will create emotional stress. Unlike the impatient Three they are able to delay action when emotionally disturbed. These partners can be quite compatible in their intimate lives on account of the natural interaction of active and receptive energies.

In the event of both partners being strong positive personalities an amicable division of responsibilities can be made, which will ensure real success in their relationship. As mentioned earlier, an ideal situation will see the Twenty-Four as the homemaker or part-time income earner and the Three as the full-time provider. In the reverse situation, the Twenty-Four will find fulfilment in a full-time occupation as well as in a large share of domestic duties. The Three will not be happy or competent in a full-time domestic role. These partners will be positive personalities if they are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months. If only one of these partners is born in any one of these months, the decision making and leadership role will be taken over by this partner. The partnership will still contain the potential for real success provided the Three is relieved of too much domestic duty. If both partners are negatively inclined the partnership will lack direction. Both partners will have difficulty making decisions.

3RD AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS

People with single digit birthdays are identified by the general characteristics of one set of vibrations relative to the particular day, and by the plane of expression to which this number belongs. The nature of their relationship with another on a personal basis or with others in general terms can be anticipated with much less difficulty than with someone with a multiple-digit birthday. Some multiple-digit birthdays are formed by vibrations with related characteristics which integrate harmoniously and which produce an uncomplicated personality. Others may contain unrelated energies which do not complement each other but instead for the most part, act independently of each other, thus producing a loosely knit personality that cannot be stereotyped. The 24th day is a good example of the former, and the 25th is an accurate example of the latter.

A partnership between a Three and a Twenty-Five will always be turbulent and volatile as neither party is likely to seriously undertake the difficult, though necessary task of understanding and reaching out to one another. Three personalities, controlled by the youthful 3 vibration representing the first flush of life, egocentrically set out to express themselves through a variety of outlets. No time is left for consideration of anything outside their own affairs. They take to the mainstream of life as leaders, activists, entertainers and performers. It is not in their nature to detach themselves from the exhilaration of self-expression and they turn into students and observers pondering over the philosophies of life. Rather than extend themselves to understanding the personality of a partner they will expect their partners to understand them and cater to their likes and dislikes. This is more a form of blindness than a form of selfishness in the general sense as Threes are loving, friendly and generous people. They are, however, so wrapped up in themselves that they seldom bother to see things from the point of view of others unless or until they are given a sharp reminder.

Twenty-Fives are rather complex personalities who are often unconsciously sorting out and understanding their own complicated personality structures and who have little time and inclination for sympathetic attention of a partner’s problems – real or imagined. Twenty-Fives are basically Seven personalities (2 + 5 = 7), and all Sevens are basically self-sufficient people who expect and respect the same quality in others. Though influenced by the 2 and 5 vibrations, 7 qualities of introspection and self-examination are always at work. They need to spend much time developing self-appreciation and getting to know themselves. Mature Twenty-Fives frequently emerge as knowledgeable and understanding people for the reason that they have firstly taken up the study of their own personality before attempting to understand others. Early ambition for power and worldly possessions could evolve into aspirations for the finer things of life.

Threes, being emotionally dependent, will expect a great deal of love and adulation shown to them They are not likely to receive this devotion form Twenty-Five partners, whose composition, though emotionally strong, tends towards independence and freedom from attachment. This could be the source of many problems with a Three partner. The Twenty-Five is formed by the receptive 2 vibration and the active 5 and 7 vibrations. The 2 and 5 belong to the emotional plane, and the 7 to the physical plane. Although the 7 is a physical vibration, it also has strong spiritual elements that contribute a quality of mystery and detachment to the personality. Though emotionalism will be a strong motivating force in the Twenty-Five, (and their first reactions will usually be emotional), excessive demonstration of emotion will be held in check by the 7 vibration. Their physical appearance offers a curious mixture of poise, sensuality and charismatic attraction.

At certain times, the Twenty-Five will display the receptive nature of the 2 vibration showing personal warmth, gentleness, patience, companionship, service and cooperation. These qualities will hold a magnetic attraction to the Three partner. At the same time disillusionment is likely to set in when the stronger individualistic and freedom-loving traits of the 5 vibration come to the fore. This 5 aspect of the Twenty-Five will refuse to carry the Three partner in any way, but will, on the contrary, attempt to change and reorganise many aspects of the Three’s lifestyle. This will be resisted by a positive Three but may succeed with a negative Three. The 7 vibration at fundamental levels of the personality will also cause problems. The extroverted Three will not understand the aloof and contemplative aspects of this vibration. Extroverted behaviour prompted by the 2 and 5 vibrations can suddenly be changed to aloof and introverted attitudes during which the Twenty-Five will seek periods of privacy and seclusion. Understanding the moderate interaction and more often than not, the independent action of three forces within the Twenty-Five, is a task that is not in the nature of a Three personality to undertake.

Although the role of a leader will be attractive to both parties, neither one will make a determined bid to assume all the responsibilities associated with leadership. Their love of personal freedom and indifference to domestic affairs will keep them away from any attempts to take charge of the running of the home. At the same time neither partner will submit to the authority of the other or surrender their right to have a say in all their affairs. They will invariably find themselves at loggerheads when decisions have to be made. Argument, noncooperation and competition for the final say will become the order of the day. Their arguments will be strengthened and prolonged by the vocal capacity of both partners. While the Three’s speech will be augmented by critical, satirical and cutting words the Twenty-Five’s delivery will be supported by forceful emotional demonstration.

Domestic affairs are likely to be neglected by both in favour of careers. The Three will look for conditions that offer scope for self-expression and the enjoyment of the society of others. The Twenty-Five will look for movement and a variety of activities, and even enjoy an element of risk or danger in their occupation. The company of others is not an essential factor as the Twenty-Five’s form of extroversion tends more towards motion, action, organisation and even manipulation of conditions and people, than towards open-minded social interaction. Both parties are certain to change their jobs more than once and involve themselves in more than one occupation at a time. Temptation to experience a variety of occupations, prompted by their natural versatility, will be too strong to overcome. This mode of life will take up so much of their time and energy that little will be left for proper domestic care and togetherness in the home. If circumstances cast these personalities into a domestic situation their versatility is such that they will adapt to their role as homemakers but their hearts will not be in their duties. The Twenty-Five will do a better job than the Three as this personality can get down to physical tasks when called upon to do so. Such tasks will usually be neglected by the Three.

There is a marked difference in the social needs of these personalities which is clearly revealed by their conduct in company. Threes perform at their best where the spotlight falls in the centre of social activity. This causes a degree of vulnerability in the Three personality insofar as these people become dependent on the society of others for their wellbeing. As natural entertainers they give out a good deal of pleasure to the company they keep and, in turn, enhance their self-image from the attention they receive. Twenty-Fives, on the other hand are not dependent on the attention and admiration of an audience. Self-expression, which motivates the Three, is not as important to them because their strong sense of curiosity which lures them into a variety of activity and diverse experiences. Their curiosity extends into worldly affairs as well as non-worldly knowledge and experiences. They are self-teachers with a keen sense of observation. While Threes receive their strength and self-assurance from outside and often invent strategies for receiving, the Twenty-Five draws upon inner resources and uses strategies to get their way. While Threes are generally stationed on the mental plane, Twenty-Fives are receptive to earthly as well as subtle forces from the physical, emotional and spiritual planes. They benefit from an intuitive wisdom by which things become known to them without resort to analysis or explanation. An excess of social life favoured by a Three partner will interfere with a Twenty-Five’s search for knowledge and experience in areas that will not hold any interest to a Three personality. The Three partner, endowed with several artistic talents may be the more popular member in their social circle but, the Twenty-Five, who is less self-centred with a keener perception of the needs of others, can be depended upon for practical help in all emergencies. Though Threes are better mixers, Twenty-Fives are sharp observers with instant reflexes which enable them to handle almost all situations, social or otherwise. They are selective of the company they keep and do not recognise superiors unless they have earned their respect. They may project an image of sociability that will disappoint people who have taken this sociability as a permanent feature of their personality. There is a need for privacy in all Twenty-Fives which may not be realised by others upon early acquaintance. They are not easy to get to know and when one does get to know them the Twenty-Five needs watchful handling as their nature is one of those opposing tendencies of introversion and extroversion which coexist in almost equal strength.

Oral frustration, a common problem with many people, is unknown to both partners. Many verbal duels, friendly or otherwise, can therefore be expected. Unless aided by emotional vibrations elsewhere, Threes depend on the medium of speech to express their thoughts and emotions. Twenty-Fives have the advantage of forceful and persuasive body-language in addition to fluency of speech. They have also a built-in safeguard (from the 7 vibration) which tells them when to stop talking and start listening. Threes are likely to overdo their overly one-sided communicative habits. While Twenty-Fives will show a genuine interest in topics introduced by others, Threes will not pay serious attention to a subject that does not interest them. When not directly employed in some form of artistic expression Threes cannot resist the urge to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Their imaginative faculty is unrestrained as their minds are uncommitted and free from traditional prejudices, dogmas and conventional values. In this respect the open-minded Twenty-Five is not different, and despite the ego-centred nature of the Three, many lively discussions on impersonal and abstract subjects can take place through the influence of the Twenty-Five.

The search for novelty will take up much of their spare time. As both feel the need for some personal freedom they are likely to go their own ways and choose their own hobbies. A Three’s time may be spent in social activities, sport, music and artistic outlets. The Twenty-Five will not be disinterested in these pastimes but their love of open spaces and the unusual, will take than further afield into diverse hobbies such as gardening, environmental care, collecting antiquarian objects, educational travel and the study of the occult sciences. Despite the need of these partners for their own time in their chosen pastimes, both can benefit considerably if they get together and function as a team. Their active and alert minds and enterprising personalities can be put to tremendous mutual advantage.

Their financial position could easily become the source of dissention and insecurity unless an earnest effort is made by both partners to control their hasty spending habits. Their impulsive, restless, optimistic and changeable ways are reflected in the manner in which they purchase things. They enter the most convenient, if not the best stores available, and make their purchases, rather than spend time following advertisements, window shopping and bargain hunting. For some measure of control to be brought into their expenditure, the Twenty-Five will have to take the initiative as this partner has the built-in safeguard of the money-wise 7 vibration. With this vibration operating in the background of the personality the Twenty-Five will be deterred from any real irresponsibility in the handling of their finances.

Although their moods may not always coincide, these partners will introduce vitality, romance, variety and experimentation into their sex lives. Threes can almost instantly feel in the mood for lovemaking. But Twenty-Fives are subject to much more variation in mood. The intricate and diverse forces operating within this personality pull them in different directions so that they need a little time before they can be put in the mood for intimacy. With a few concessions on both sides these partners can enjoy an exceptionally compatible sex life. Threes need to be reassured from time to time of their worth and importance, while too many sudden demands should not be made on the Twenty-Five. Both parties enjoy moving freely with members of the opposite sex without arousing feelings of jealousy, anger or envy in each other. The nature of their lifestyle will be such that they will have the opportunity to mix with the opposite sex and encounter temptations associated with such interaction. The Three has a flirtatious nature but will always remain loyal to the right partner. The right partner for a Three is one who will always keep them intrigued, and the enigmatic Twenty-Five is almost certain to do so. Twenty-Fives could evoke flirtatious behaviour in others and respond to a degree but will finally choose to be faithful to their partners.

Positive Threes and positive Twenty-Fives are those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. A partnership between these personalities will be tempestuous and volatile and neither will subject to the decisions of the other. The chances of a compatible relationship are much better when only one partner is born in one of these months. In this event the other will be more inclined to submit to the will of the positive partner. In the absence of a strong 1 vibration the Three personality is more open to more negative qualities such as the lack of proper direction and the absence of self-confidence. The Twenty-Five is in a better position as the 7 vibration usually takes the place of the 1 to provide a good sense of direction and money management, although the self-confidence provided by the 1 vibration will still be wanting.

3RD AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS

The opposite polarities of this combination are its most obvious features. The active nature of one and receptive qualities of the other will have the most significant impact on a relationship between subjects of these birthdays. The 3rd day of the month holds the concentrated power of the active 3 vibration operating on the mental plane of expression. Secondary influences may be contributed towards the structure of the integral Three personality by other points of influence in the birth date and name, but this individual will function and be identified by the general qualities of the 3 vibration. As in the case of all others whose birthdays do not contain the driving force of the 1 vibration, those of the 3rd depend on its presence in other areas of influence in order to, for the most part, live up to positive aspects of the 3 vibration. Many splendid characteristics of this vibration will be inhibited by a lack of self-confidence which is the usual consequence of the absence of the 1 vibration. In addition, tendencies to accentuate the negative qualities of the 3 will take hold of the personality. High intelligence, a clear imagination, sociability, a capacity to absorb new knowledge quickly and other characteristics akin to an essentially youthful and outgoing temperament are typical positive qualities of the average Three personality. They are also acutely conscious of themselves as individuals and constantly seek to express their individuality in a variety of ways. Positive Threes are optimistic, ambitious and authoritative. Sooner or later they rise above all subordinate and restrictive positions, and establish themselves as trend-setters and leaders in public life and social life. Negative Threes, especially those with a repetition of the 3 vibration from the birth month, could be vain, boastful, critical, and extremely fussy about personal needs, emotionally unstable, lost in detail and desperate for attention. Due to low self-esteem they also indulge in self-pity and escapist tendencies.

The receptive 2, 6, and 8 vibrations forming the 26th day interact harmoniously to create an integral Eight personality. The 2 and 6 vibrations expand and strengthen basic Eight characteristics. The Twenty-Six is freed from inner turmoil caused by a loose personality structure of conflicting vibrations. As both the 2 and 8 belong to the emotional plane there could be a perceptible emphasis on emotionalism. However, the mental 6 vibration will always act as a preventative against any excessive display of emotion. Their integral personality structure will include many features which the 2 and 6 vibrations have in common, such as peace, harmony, diplomacy, agreeability, cooperation, domesticity, guardianship, sociability and companionship. These are also strong healing vibrations, and people influenced by them take to some form of physical or mental healing practices. As an emotionally expressive vibration the 2 will provide a special quality of personal warmth, and the 6 will introduce a steady force of logic and mental balance. The combined 2 and 6 characteristics will support fundamental 8 qualities of judgment, deliberation, arbitration, organisation, management, dependability and executive authority. The absence of tension in the general disposition of the Twenty-Six will be a clearly distinguishing feature.

As in the case of the Three personality, the Twenty-Six also depends on the 1 vibration in other strong areas of influence to be certain of positive expression of the multiple aspects of their personality. High ambition and leadership traits characteristic of the 8 vibration will emerge if the personality is supported by the 1 vibration in the birth month, or as the destiny number (e.g.: 26th of March, 1970 will have a destiny number of 1, which is calculated as follows: 2 + 6 + 3 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 0 = 28 = 1). If not, the Twenty-Six will lack self-confidence and self-reliance. The competitive spirit will lie dormant and many opportunities for material progress will be lost. Their kindly and helpful disposition will not be affected, however. The 8 vibration’s drive for power and material possessions will be replaced by ambition for cultural advancement and a comfortable and harmonious lifestyle favoured by the 2 and 6 vibrations.

The magnetic attraction of opposite polarities should operate very closely in this combination. Among other factors, the nurturing qualities of the 2 and 6 combined with the protective strength of the 8 will create an irresistible attraction to the Three personality. This is an individual who, while fiercely guarding individuality, seeks and finds comfort in the emotional and physical care and attention of a partner. The receptive qualities of the Twenty-Six will not only accommodate the needs of the vibrant Three but will also derive much pleasure and personal benefit in doing so. The Three partner’s optimistic approach to life will help reduce some of the anxieties suffered by the Twenty-Six when facing new situations.

The innate tendencies in all Three personalities to assume the role of leader will emerge early in the relationship. The quick decisions of positive Threes will reap many advantages and material benefits. (Negative threes will be uncertain and desultory in their decisions but will still insist on having their say while putting up a façade of leadership). A Twenty-Six will not contest a Three’s aspirations for this role. They are neither outright leaders nor followers. Their expertise lies in planning and organising. They would sooner try to maintain a partnership on a level footing than aspire to an authoritative position, or submit to a subordinate one. In a partnership with a Three, using the combined wisdom of head and heart, they would organise the partnership’s affairs in such a manner that the Three partner plays a formal role as the leading partner while they retain a firm grip on management of financial and other household and family matters. All emotionally turbulent situations will be avoided as domestic felicity will be placed over all other considerations. With high ideals for a harmonious home and family life a fatherly/motherly role is natural to a Twenty-Six. While the Three is almost exclusively a career oriented individual with no domestic attachment, the Twenty-Six will in no circumstances neglect or surrender domestic responsibility in favour of a specialised form of work. Their well organised and well planned lifestyle enables them to assume dual responsibility of home and career, or business interest. They are, in fact, better business people than the straightforward Three personalities and can exercise the option of a career as a professional or a role in commercial activity. If the need arises for one member to drop out of the workforce and take up full-time household duties, needless to say, the Twenty-Six will be the obvious choice – other factors permitting. While Threes see themselves as providers, Twenty-Sixes can see themselves as nurturers as well as providers.

Being extroverted and friendly individuals both partners will be devoted to a good deal of social activity. They will not feel threatened by each other’s social popularity as each takes up a different position in their interaction with people. With their natural sparkle and cheerfulness Threes make friends and admirers by maintaining the high spirits of any company in which they find themselves, while the Twenty-Sixes gain popularity by showing a sympathetic interest in the affairs of their friends and acquaintances, and helping them whenever they can. They possess the capacity to span the generation gap with greater ease than the Three and therefore have a wider scope to impress their personality upon others. A goodwill and trusting approach to people is used by both, and they evoke a similar response from the company they keep. This couple will spontaneously acquire a reputation for entertainment and hospitality. Their home will be known for its warm and convivial atmosphere, especially for the good humour and lively conversation of the Three and the good food spread out by the efforts of the Twenty-Six. Their home can also be one in which their artistic appreciation and talents will be tastefully displayed.

An easy flow of oral communication will help to build a closeness between these partners unlike what often happens in some partnerships that suffer various forms of oral frustration. As in their social attitudes, there are some basic differences between their oral expression. The Three has a copious supply of words, enunciated with speed, accuracy and mental dexterity. Periods of shyness, embarrassed silences, loss of words, lack of conversational material or other inhibiting factors are very rare in the case of a positive Three personality. In most discussions and arguments with a Twenty-Six, the Three partner may gain an initial advantage through the impact of their word power. The Twenty-Six is certainly not as fluent and loquacious, or as insistent on being heard. Their qualities of diplomacy and patience enable them to wait until others have spoken before giving out their views, doing so in unhurried and measured tones. A natural talent for working out compromises often cuts down many impetuous and ill-considered suggestions and ideas put forward by a Three partner. A characteristic of most Threes is their strong desire to hold onto the centre of attention. This usually makes them indifferent listeners and generally one-sided conversationalists. The Twenty-Six, with no desire to monopolise company, prefers to play their part keeping the conversational ball rolling. Threes are noted for their sharp sense of humour and quick repartee and Twenty-Sixes gain a reputation as good mimics and anecdotists. Unlike their Three partners, Twenty-Sixes enjoy periods of silence during which their analytical thought processes are put to work. They are also fond of communicating through the written word, a medium in which the Three seldom finds the time or patience.

The Twenty-Six’s deep regard for the value of shared experiences along with the Three’s natural friendliness will combine so that exclusive time will be set aside for each other during their leisure hours. The youthful nature of all Threes will be reflected in the competitive spirit and all-round skills shown in a variety of outdoor activity. The Twenty-Six partner may not be as totally dedicated to active sport because the competitive spirit in the 8 aspect of their personality is abated considerably by the non-competitive 2 and 6 vibrations. Twenty-Sixes are, however, excellent club persons and are certain to join their Three partners in all social activities associated with sporting clubs or any other type of club.

The creative artist in the Three personality will be drawn out and encouraged by the Twenty-Six’s keen appreciation for all things artistic. The perceptive qualities of this partner do not combat the creative and expressive nature of the Three, but instead, tend to complement and stimulate the Three’s talents. In the dramatic arts (in which these partners can develop a strong mutual interest) the Three will be inclined towards comedy and the Twenty-Six towards romance and tragedy. Special expertise will be shown by the Twenty-Six in the culinary arts. Urged on by the healing and teaching tendencies of the 2 and the 6 vibrations Twenty-Sixes may also extend themselves into community service, charitable causes, counselling and paramedical organisations. All in all, these partners can team together in their leisure time to create a happy and stimulating partnership.

The economic affairs of these partners will be taken over and maintained on a sound footing by the Twenty-Six. While concern for financial security is a feature of the 2 vibration, good planning and responsible spending habits are natural qualities of the 6 and 8 vibrations. The combination of these features along with the saving habits of the 2 vibration contributes towards strengthening the financial acumen of the Twenty-Six. Threes are self-indulgent and free spenders who seldom show concern over money matters. A natural confidence in their ability to attract money saves them from this anxiety. If not held in check by a responsible partner, addictive spending habits are easily formed. As long as a certain amount of money is available for personal use the Three should not object to the transfer of control to the Twenty-Six. They should not take this as an infringement upon their authority, but instead, welcome the release they get from household budgeting – a task which is easily handled by the Twenty-Six. Though responsible and cautious in everything they do, the Twenty-Six has a big heart and a disposition that is free from selfishness, meanness or penny-pinching. As long as they are not rushed into making ill-conceived investments or purchases, they spend generously on family comforts. While the Three is inclined to spend on themselves, the Twenty-Six spends less on themselves and more on the family and household.

The broad compatibility enjoyed by these partners in most aspects of life also enters their intimate relations. Theirs is not a purely physically based union in which they may be faced with the possibility of drifting away after physical attractions have subsided. On the contrary, they are likely to move closer to each other in an emotionally close relationship. A strong sentimental and romantic streak in both partners is a certain preventative against all the magic of their courting days being forgotten or allowed to fade away. The love nature of the Three personality is such that it is enriched and strengthened in the knowledge that their love is reciprocated. Threes love deeply and completely and consequently become grievously hurt when their love is not returned in the same degree. There can be no such risk with a Twenty-Six partner whose love nature is expansive and accommodating. They could, however, become possessive and over-protective of loved ones. Paternal or maternal attitudes wisely used will work well as long as their Three partners are allowed freedom of expression and freedom of movement.

Positive Threes and Twenty-Sixes who are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will form good equalitarian partnerships that will be productive in every aspect of life. The 1 vibration contributed by these months will provide the incentive required for creative and independent activity. If only the Three partner is born in one of these months the decision making role will be taken over by this partner, but the Twenty-Six will still take over general management of their affairs. If the Twenty-Six partner is the one with the 1 vibration in the birth month this partner will make all the final decisions as well as undertake the running of the household. In either situation this partnership will be compatible and successful. If neither partner has the advantage of the positivity assured by the 1 vibration, the partnership will still be close emotionally but weakened in productivity due to a general lack of drive and self-confidence in both.

3RD AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS

A rather complicated picture is presented by this set of birthdays. An obvious difficulty is the centralised power of the single digit of the 3rd day being matched against the complex forces of the multiple digit birthday of the 27th. However, not all such combinations are faced with complications. In fact, many single/multiple digit birthday combinations are well matched. Due to certain fundamental differences in the nature of the vibrations controlling them, the present set of birthdays truly cannot be seen as complementary or compatible. The principle of opposites may not attract subjects of these birthdays and keep them together on a long term basis, and an attraction on the basis of similarities is also unlikely.

Three personalities are infused by a youthful vitality and optimism, and hold the pursuit of happiness as one of chief objects in life. Their ability to appreciate sound and see colour and beauty in all things enhances their capacity to enjoy life. They are capable of working hard but do so with their minds set on the pleasures they intend indulging in thereafter. They usually seek a form of work which is, in itself, a pleasurable experience. They have alert and restless minds backed up by a fertile and creative imagination. Mental energy, followed by physical activity in several directions can be expected from all Three personalities. The individualistic nature of this personality is such that they do not harmonise themselves with prevailing conditions but set out to create new ground for expression of their energies. With self-expression their predominant urge, they develop a natural capacity to look after themselves and find agreeable work and company by creating openings for self-expression rather than awaiting opportunities to present themselves. They remain proud of their individuality and go through life as self-centred and self-conscious individuals. Being mentally oriented people they live in the realm of mind. They remain young at heart and this youthful disposition is reflected in their dress, looks and exuberant body language. Most Threes look deceptively younger than their years. They have tremendous powers of restoration and revival after any setbacks in life. As active and versatile personalities many Threes submit to the temptation of scattering their energies in several directions. Specialisation of one form or another at an early age may not be undertaken unless they are subjected to firm direction.

The exuberant nature of the Three personality stands out in sharp contrast to the mellowed and deeper forces within a Twenty-Seven. These are well integrated individuals made up of the peaceful 2 vibration, the contemplative 7 and the humanitarian 9 vibration. Although each vibration belongs to a different plane of expression, none of them possess any disruptive or unrelated features that could cause disunity within the personality complex of the Twenty-Seven. A strong force of spirituality, intuition and extrasensory perception flows through all these vibrations to give the Twenty-Seven a very high degree of sensitivity to the physical and non-physical worlds. As a result, they react adversely to speed, unnecessary change, restlessness and ungovernable activity. These are aspects of the Three that will disturb the restful nature of the Twenty-Seven. The fundamental difference between these partners issues from the egocentric mind of the Three on the one hand, and the wide, understanding and universal outlook of the Twenty-Seven on the other hand; or we may say, the vigour of youth and the wisdom of maturity. This will be a lop-sided partnership in the sense that Threes are generally unconscious of a point of view or desires other than their own and therefore demand things their way, while the Twenty-Seven is able to instantly assess people and situation from all angles and accommodate them without causing discord, resentment or inconvenience to others. Threes, of course, are not possessively acquisitive in the sense that they are greedy and selfishly cling on to their possessions. On the contrary, they are generous and sharing. Their problem is that the moment they are attracted to something they want it, and their versatile nature is open to many temptations. They also have many psychological demands in the sense that they need the care and admiration of those around them. The Twenty-Seven will easily understand the clear-cut and open nature of the Three, but the Three will seldom comprehend the depth and complexity of the Twenty-Seven.

In outward ways the extroverted manner and natural thrust of the Three’s individuality will present the Three as the leader. They may take the initiative as the decision maker, but eventually this will be confined to their personal affairs only as the Twenty-Seven’s views will ultimately carry more weight in regard to matters relating to the partnership. Though Threes like to remain in charge of themselves, especially in regard to their own actions, they need the love and service of an organised partner in their domestic life. In private, the Three will eventually come to accept the leadership of the Twenty-Seven in setting limits as to how far they go in their various outside activities. The effectiveness of the Twenty-Seven’s influence over the Three partner will be based on a deep understanding of human nature. Their greater capacity for intuition and empathy give them an awareness of how people feel and what they really want – a quality which the Three personality is usually unable to reciprocate. By the same token, the Three’s vivacity and optimism should bring relief to the Twenty-Seven during periods of anxiety and indecision which they may suffer from on occasions, when some definite action has to be taken. In their interpretation of events, especially future events, Threes usually take an optimistic view while a Twenty-Seven may be inclined to uneasiness and some degree of uncertainty. Threes perceive situations in which they are involved as being either for them or against them and meet these situations by direct action or open confrontation. Twenty-Sevens perceive situations as complex and tentative, calling for the use of caution and subtlety in their attempts to deal with them.

Domestic duties do not attract either of these partners. The Three personality, especially, will regard such duties as restrictive and unproductive. They aim for forms of activity that fire their imagination and satisfy their need for interaction with people. The isolation and routine of domestic life linked with their distaste for physical work make them unwilling and often disenchanted homemakers. Twenty-Sevens are not genuine homemakers either but they will be attracted to home life for the peace and quiet it offers against the competition and materialism of public life. While running an efficient household they will make time for themselves and for the pursuit of personal interests. They are equipped to divide their talents between domestic life and specially chosen forms of employment. They are ideal people for self-employment in a home-based business. As real nature lovers they should find many sources of income from products of the land.

Social life will reveal some differences in the temperaments and tastes of these personalities, and the need for adjustment on both sides. The Three’s liking for novelty, excitement, a changing social scene and unconventional entertainment will clash with the Twenty-Seven’s preference for carefully chosen company, a slower pace and a reluctance to replace the familiar with the new and untested. The Three is a peer-oriented individual who chases company and entertainment that is ultra-modern while the Twenty-Seven favours classical forms of entertainment and the company of persons of a studious and questioning outlook on life. Although a partial blending of these attitudes is possible it is difficult to envisage the Twenty-Seven acquiring too many of the Three’s tastes. It is much more likely that the Three will be slowed down and influenced by the subtle efforts of the Twenty-Seven. The buoyant outlook of the Three and the mature outlook of the Twenty-Seven are revealed in the manner in which they approach people and life in general. The Three’s acute consciousness of their identity as individuals creates a sense of disconnectedness and a state of mind that supposes that the world revolves around them. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, are conscious of their identity with all life or, as mere links in a greater scheme of things. This comprehensive outlook creates the humanitarian in this personality which is one of their hallmarks. The Three thrives on experimentation with the pleasurable things of life and on self-expression and the popularity they expect from their efforts. While the totally extroverted Threes are true performers in the midst of company, Twenty-Sevens, who are mildly extroverted people, move in company as students and observers, and even as teachers. While Threes acquire popularity by bringing joy and laughter into society, Twenty-Sevens do so as humanitarian and knowledgeable people.

The Three will always be the outspoken partner and may often say things that may hurt the sensitively organised Twenty-Seven. They do not communicate with the same subtleties of feeling. In their zeal to be their own person they may overlook the sensitivity of those who love them. The Twenty-Seven has the wisdom to understand that this is due to the Three’s unthinking habits rather than an innate sense of selfishness or rudeness. Threes are essentially courteous and friendly people who need to be reminded from time to time of their obligations to others. Differences of opinion between these partners can be settled without bitterness developing afterwards. It is not in the nature of either party to bear a grudge or feel resentful. Both can communicate their feelings through speech and relieve themselves of pressures built up by the egocentric behaviour of the Three, and conduct of the Twenty-Seven, which the Three may consider too slow and cautious. The quality of the Three’s conversation is generally light-hearted and witty, and confined to topics that hold their interest. They are quite willing to talk of their affairs at length without embarrassment but lose interest with amazing rapidity when the topic of conversation is turned away from their affairs or into abstract matters. Twenty-Sevens are reserved in all personal discussions as they find no need to exhibit themselves in any way. Their sense of objectivity and breadth of vision raises a need for discussing philosophical and world-wide subjects, a need which may not be shared by their Three partners. The forceful body language of the Three reflects the fire and vigour of a vibrant and restless mind while the slower and dignified body language of the Twenty-Seven indicates the hidden reserves of a thoughtful personality.

A separation of ways due to divergence of interests is likely in their spare time. Threes may be more insistent on self-time than the Twenty-Seven. As they find relaxation difficult and do not really need too much of it, they are drawn into a wide variety of out-of-home and outdoor activity. Twenty-Sevens find relaxation easy, and indeed need this outlet in order to counteract the pressures of material life. With the right background and environment many Twenty-Sevens will engage in the pursuit of self-knowledge and a close study of human nature and human destiny. Pure Threes are generally prone to turn away hastily from self-study or from any form of arcane or esoteric study. They are much too fond of the pleasures and beautiful things of physical life to concern themselves with probing into its non-physical aspects. As Twenty-Sevens are attuned to higher frequencies they are naturally attracted to metaphysical enquiry.

The 7 vibration also introduces into the personality a love of nature and natural surroundings. Gardening and landscaping will become one of their keenest hobbies. This vibration, along with the 9, also contributes an attraction to anything that is historical or pre-historical, while the urge for collecting things is derived from the 2 vibration. Many Twenty-Sevens may therefore become students of history and collectors of antiquarian objects. The untraditional and modern mind of the Three partner has no interest in these hobbies. A mutual love of music and the whole of the art world may bring them together, but here again, the avant-garde mentality of the Three and the modern and popular forms of music and art taken up by them may clash with the classical forms favoured by the Twenty-Seven.

Financially, this partnership will be in a constant state of fluctuation. Both partners are capable of making money but neither party is attached to it for its own sake or for the security it may provide at some later date. They spend generously without counting the cost. Threes spend freely on themselves while Twenty-Sevens spend more on others and much less on themselves. Neither partner is likely to be firm enough to exercise control over their own or each other’s spending habits. If an unusual effort is made to save money it will be done by the Twenty-Seven. However, this partner could be persuaded to part with a nest egg if approached through the sentimental side of their nature. They are particularly vulnerable against the verbally gifted and winning ways of a Three partner.

Twenty-Sevens are generally tolerant and sympathetic of others and judge themselves unsparingly. Threes usually judge others critically but remain oblivious of their own shortcomings. They entertain high opinions of themselves which may not always be held to the same degree by others, while Twenty-Sevens may hold a humble opinion of themselves yet may be highly regarded. While generously giving credit to others, Twenty-Sevens reluctantly accept compliments for their own actions. Threes are the reverse, especially the negative Threes, who refuse to see talent in others and go to the extent of advertising their own real or imagined talents.

The Twenty-Seven’s attunement to a wider range of sensitive vibrations allow them to appreciate even the slightest variation in the moods and needs of those around them This, of course, adds stresses to their lives which the self-conscious Three does not feel. It could be unfortunate and inconvenient to be so organised unless the Twenty-Seven recognises and acquires the ability to close themselves, or make themselves impregnable to harmful influences. The different attitudes of these partners will be highlighted in their intimate lives with the Twenty-Seven turning out, in most ways, as the giver and the Three becoming the taker. While the emotional needs of the Three will be met by the perceptive Twenty Seven, their own emotional needs may be overlooked by the less discerning Three.

The Three partner who is born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will attempt to dominate the partnership and may succeed in doing so in many outward ways. The leadership qualities of the 3 and 1 vibrations will be too strong to agree to an equalitarian partnership. Twenty-Seven who is born in one of these months will not attempt to take over the outright role of leader and decision maker. However, their natural wisdom will influence the partnership in all major issues without having to assert their position as equals or leaders. The position will be the same in any other combination of birth months. The Three will be allowed to maintain an outward show of authority, real or otherwise, while the Twenty-Seven discretely guides the affairs of the partnership from behind the scenes.

3RD AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS

A comparison of single digit and multiple digit birthdays reveals, at first sight, the concentrated characteristics of the single vibration in the former and the grouping of qualities of three vibrations in the latter. By and large, subjects of a single digit birthday face the world through the lens of the single vibration of their birthday. No doubt, the vibrations of the birth month and birth year contribute secondary observation points which may modify, expand or increase the intensity of their birthday vibration, but the focus will be mainly through the powers of the birthday vibration.

As a product of union between the two polarised primary forces symbolised by the active 1 vibration and receptive 2 (that make up the 3), the 3 vibration demonstrates the principle of youth. Though retaining many qualities of its parentage this vibration, operating on the mental plane, is distinguished by features that are entirely its own. Regardless of their age Three personalities remain young at heart and never fail to assert their individuality against all odds. While all Threes may take the same general direction in life, not all may cover the same distance. The vibrations of the birth month and other areas of power will control the degree in which they use their potential. For instance, Three personalities with the energetic 1 vibration in their birth months will undoubtedly be self-confident and proudly individualistic and use their potential to a greater degree than those with the gentler, cooperative and placid 2 or 6 vibrations in their birth months. A Three personality could be one of several types varying in strength from one-pointed individuality to a lenient and flexible temperament.

The 28th day of the month, despite its multiple digits, does not produce as many variations. Subjects of this birthday are basically One personalities (2 + 8 = 10 = 1). Through the 1 vibration they already possess a good measure of stability, individuality and self-confidence. They do not depend on other areas of influence for strength of purpose as this is provided not only by the 1 vibration but also by the 8 vibration. However, this birthday can present some problems on the emotional plane. The emotionalism of the 2 and 8 vibrations will normally be held in check by the underlying 1, but in the event of more emotional plane numbers such as the 2, 5 or 8 being repeated in the birth month the 1 vibration may not be strong enough to control excess of emotionalism which is bound to come out in the Twenty-Eight personality. This personality cannot be classed as a straightforward One, such as those born on the 1st or 10th day of the month, as some characteristics of the 1 vibration are modified by the 2 and others reinforced by the 8 vibration. The 8 has many qualities in common with the 1 and the combination of these vibrations will dominate the Twenty-Eight’s personality. The qualities of the 2 will, at the same time, exercise a softening influence over naturally aggressive qualities of the 1 and 8.

Despite the active nature of the 3 vibration controlling the Three personality and the receptive qualities of the 2 and 8 in the Twenty-Eight, a magnetic attraction of opposite polarities is unlikely to take place between Threes and Twenty-Eights. An attraction on the basis of similarities is even less likely. However, if these personalities do form a relationship based on superficial attractions, many fundamental differences in outlook will soon become evident, and neither party will be inclined to make concessions or adapt to the role expectations of a good partnership.

Twenty-Eights are builders in the sense that they dedicate themselves to the acquisition of wealth and power. They set out to achieve definite goals with a strong will, self-discipline and hard work. As a spin-off of their efforts their associates also acquire a measure of wealth and success. Other related qualities built into their personality complex are high ambition, competitiveness, judgment, analysis, foresight, practicality, deliberation, organisation, management and strength of purpose. Except for high ambition and an irresistible urge to take command, these enduring qualities are not present in the same strength in the Three personality. Their optimist and buoyant attitudes are bound to clash with the steadfastness of the Twenty-Eight. While this partner will always be mindful of the future and constantly think and work ahead of current events, the Three will be set on enjoying the pleasures of the present. As competent organisers Twenty-Eights have a knack of delegating duties. In their attempts to do so with a Three partner they will soon realise that the Three’s sense of responsibility in practical matters cannot always be relied upon. Many tasks may be left undone or incomplete. Threes are fond of having things done for them, and on a day-to-day basis, this will not be encouraged by a hardworking Twenty-Eight partner whose policy does not go beyond helping people help themselves. They do not tolerate being taken for granted by impractical people, nor do they believe in handouts in cash, goods or services. They are however approachable through the sentimental side of their nature and are generous to those in real need of help.

The authoritative and management aspects of the Twenty-Eight are likely to intrude into their private life causing instant conflict with the freedom loving Three. At most times, quite unconsciously, and at other times out of necessity, they will try to manage the affairs and influence the conduct of the Three. While a Three personality expects sympathy, tolerance, indulgence and various personal services from a partner they will reject any attempts to influence or control their lifestyle. They are usually attracted to partners who display strong maternal or paternal instincts. Assuming these traits are present in a Twenty-Eight they may mistakenly seek refuge in the strength of character seen in this personality. However, they will realise that the Twenty-Eight’s strength is neither maternal or paternal, but authoritative in a business and administrative sense, and will thus begin to feel ignored and overshadowed. The Twenty-Eight should understand the Three’s deep need to safeguard their individuality and any attempts to control them will only jeopardise an already tentative association. The Three personality is also fond of exercising command, but very little or no opportunity will be found in a partnership with a Twenty-Eight. The division of authority and responsibility may remain an unsolved problem.

Both partners are energised by challenges in life. The Three seeks a wide field for self-expression and the Twenty-Eight for execution of their administrative and organisational talents. They begin to lose power when life lacks a challenge. A domestic way of life will not be regarded as the answer to their ambitions. The Three, in particular, will not be an organised and satisfied homemaker. They are individuals who need to be where the action is, as it were, and may revolt against the routine, timetables and relative isolation from public life. They need motivation in the midst of people of their own extroverted temperament in order to employ and display their several artistic talents. If the Twenty-Eight partner is placed in the position of homemaker the household will be run with optimum efficiency, however, this mode of life will not be sufficient to use the stored up energy of the power-plus vibrations that make up this personality. If they fail to gain outlets in public life they could put in too much of their executive talents and authority into family life, thereby damaging the degree of intimacy, warmth and relaxation needed in home life.

Friendliness is an endearing quality found in both partners, but their capacity to make friends and maintain friendships is not quite the same due to differences in their individual levels of extroversion. Threes are free and open personalities who get to know people easily. As they do not let opportunities for pleasurable experiences slip by they attract people and encourage them to follow their lead. They consider it a folly to wait to enjoy themselves at some future date. The chief requirement for friendship with a Three is the love of excitement, laughter, comradeship, amusements and other joys of living. They insist on a prominent role in their social circles and think themselves ill-used when compelled to take a back seat. They have a greater dependency than most personality types on social life for their wellbeing, as they can only enjoy their pleasures in company. The Twenty-Eight on the other hand, is a cordial and affable personality and an excellent mixer, but they do not place the same emphasis on pleasure and friendships as the Three. While Threes may unwittingly neglect family responsibilities in a misplaced loyalty to friends, Twenty-Eights will always place loved ones and domestic duties before outside interests. They are also more critical and selective in their choice of company and sparing in the time they allow themselves for social activity. Their friendships are fewer but last longer as they are based on more enduring values.

The Three personality communicates almost entirely through the power of speech. They develop an enlarged vocabulary which they use with the consummate skills of natural talkers. Their rapid turnover of thoughts is translated into wards with almost equal speed, and their gift for words is usually accompanied by a good speaking voice. Much of their social popularity is derived from their communication skills and delightful sense of humour. Their fluency of speech could also be directed into negative channels. When adopting offensive or defensive attitudes they could disregard the feelings of others and use their fluency of speech in critical, satirical and other hurtful ways. The communication skills of the Twenty-Eight are of a different order. In the first instance, they are deliberate thinkers who remain careful and unhurried when they convey their thoughts into speech. By coming directly to the point in any matter they do not confuse themselves or others by an excess of words and phrases, and are usually fully aware of what they say. Dependence on word power for communication is greatly reduced through good body language. The emotionally expressive 2 and 8 vibrations act as a splendid substitute for fluency of speech. Twenty-Eights are tactful and gentle and at the same time positive and forceful. In discussions and arguments between these partners, (and there will be many), the Three may score some initial points, but sooner or later they will run out of steam when faced with the Twenty-Eight’s patience, judgment and willingness to talk things over.

Three personalities are usually too individualistic and preoccupied with their own interests to share their spare time with their partners, unless their partners selflessly give up their own interests and join in with the Three. A Twenty-Eight is most unlikely to make this sacrifice. While Threes will carefully divide their time between work and play, and even introduce some play into their working hours, the Twenty-Eight will put in more time and emotional effort into work and unintentionally leave much less time for recreation and relaxation. They could easily allow themselves to get caught up in the race for wealth and power, and narrow down their personal interests and breadth of outlook. As work-strain, tension and frustration may take its toll; they may want to use their limited free time enjoying the peace and quietude of simple home comforts in order to recharge their batteries. This is sure to come into conflict with their socially active Three partners whose hobbies will involve much out-of-home activity. Threes may accuse their Twenty-Eight partners of pre-occupation with work and material things while the Twenty-Eight may point their fingers at what they consider are many happy-go-lucky, costly and unproductive habits of the Three.

Both partners will demand freedom to handle their own finances. Consequently, frequent arguments will take place when attempts are made to work out some system to manage the partnership’s expenses. The Three’s capacity to handle money is unequal to their earning power. In other words, money comes into their hands through enterprise and versatility, but it leaves them just as easily on account of their expensive tastes and free spending habits. The lifestyle of the Twenty-Eight does not make as many demands on their finances. They seldom lose touch with practicality and constantly work on plans for the future, and in these plans financial security is given serious attention. They may be shocked by the Three’s lack of concern and cooperation in their efforts for a secure future. The only way the Twenty-Eight can be made to part with their money injudiciously is by approaches to the sentimental side of their nature. Threes have a much greater come-back after financial failure and are therefore able to recoup their losses or start afresh. Twenty-Eight’s do not have this capacity to such a degree as the Three. They put everything they have into building up a successful career or business, and in the event of serious loss they feel drained of enthusiasm and self-assurance. They take much longer to recover and begin re-establishing. A nest egg is an essential safeguard against a breakdown in the affairs of the Twenty-Eight, while the usual guarantee for the Three is their natural optimism and versatility.

The Three partner sooner or later becomes aware that the Twenty-Eight’s emotions are their weak point, just as the Twenty-Eight, in turn, knows that vanity is the Three’s weak point. The Twenty-Eight’s sentiments, however, are not always open and vulnerable as they are protected by the businesslike aspects of the 1 and 8 vibrations. However, the Three will look for every opportunity to take advantage of their sentiments in unguarded moments. It is unlikely that the Twenty-Eight will bother to play up too often to the vanity of the Three unless they find that there is some practical advantage to be gained by doing so. Despite many personality differences, the romantic and highly imaginative mentality of the Three can be made to complement the powerful emotions of the Twenty-Eight. Their intimate relations can become very successful if the Twenty-Eight makes allowance for the spontaneous actions of the Three, and the Three, in turn, understands that the Twenty-Eight keeps their emotions under control, and releases them only when they choose the time and place. The difference here is one of sensitivity. The Three could be wholly conscious of their own need at any given time or place but the Twenty-Eight will be conscious of mutual need and other practical considerations.

Positive Threes with minds of their own are those who are born in the 1st, 10, 11th and 12th months. The normally strong-willed Twenty-Eight becomes even stronger and more adamant in their views when they are also born in one of these months. Partnerships between these types of Threes and Twenty-Eights will lead to tense rivalry rather than good-natured competition or sincere attempts at cooperation. If the Three partner only is born in one of these months there will still be personality clashes but the chances of forming a partnership on an equal basis will be improved. These Threes will acquire many practical qualities. If the Twenty-Eight is the partner born in one of these months there is no doubt that this partner will take over the managing role. This will be the case even when neither partner is born with the powerful 1 vibration in the birth month.

3RD AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS

In our attempts to compare and contrast various birthdays we are faced with three categories, taken in order of simplicity or complexity. Firstly, two single digit birthdays such as the 3rdand 4th present the comparatively simple case of two straightforward Three and Four personalities functioning generally through the vibratory powers of the 3 and 4 vibrations respectively. Secondly, a single digit birthday and a multiple digit birthday, such as the present combination, takes us into a complicated category. In this instance we are faced with a relatively straightforward personality and a complex individual whose personality structure is composed of more than one vibration, each having almost equal value and power. The third category, of course, is a combination of two multiple digit birthdays. This is the most complicated one as there are more wheels within wheels in this combination than in the first two.

A Three/Twenty-Nine combination is a particularly difficult one due to the highly complex and variable structure of the Twenty-Nine personality. Attempts to sort out or classify a Twenty-Nine personality is difficult enough, but doing so in relation to an intimate association with another presents many more problems. The 29th is one of the most complex of all multiple digit birthdays as it contains no less than four vibratory forces. If the multiple digit is set out as follows: 2 + 9 = 11, or 2 + 9 = 11 = 1 + 1 = 2, it will be seen, in the first instance, that this birthday produces a Eleven personality and in the second instance, a Two personality. The Eleven personality motivates under the influence of a master vibration, which in turn is supported by the 2 and 9 vibrations. The 9 and 11 are vibrations advanced in humanitarian and spiritual aspects of life. They are complemented by the sensitive and psychic qualities of the 2 vibration. A Twenty-Nine operating on the level of the master vibration thus formed, is many degrees higher on the evolutionary scale than physically oriented and materialistic personality types. It will be extremely difficult to pick a partner on these high frequencies who can form a compatible and successful relationship with such a Twenty-Nine. Fortunately, not many Twenty-Nines remain on the high frequencies of the master vibration. The majority pass over to the influence of the 2 vibration to become intensified Two personalities. This intensification is due to the fact that this Two is formed by the digits of a master vibration. They are by no means the same as plain Twos born on the 2nd or 20th. Although these intensified Twos form their own vibratory levels for the most part, they do not entirely lose touch either consciously or unconsciously, with their high-powered background. When the intensified Two is under stress they can draw upon the strength of the master vibration which the plain Two has no recourse to. Due to the direct influence of the comprehensive 9 vibration and the subtle influence of the inbuilt 11, this second type of Twenty-Nine is also a problem partner.

Although there will be certain features in common in a Three/Twenty-Nine partnership, the differences that will arise will be far greater than any binding features. The Three is unlikely to ever understand the complexities of a Twenty-Nine’s personality; nor will the Twenty-Nine tolerate or accommodate to a Three’s self-centred lifestyle. For entirely different reasons both personalities are late starters in life. Due to their versatility and pleasure loving nature Threes are likely to sow their wild oats and change direction a few times before they settle down to a reasonably steady lifestyle. Helped along by their egocentricity they plunge into various forms of self-expression free from doubts arising from self-analysis and difficulties of self-understanding. The young Twenty-Nine is bewildered and tossed around here and there by the high-powered vibrations comprising the integral personality. Their minds find it difficult to understand and contain these powerful forces. It is only when a certain stage of maturity has been reached that they are able to settle down as mature and responsible adults. In the meantime they may leave behind a train of complicated and unsuccessful personal experiences.

This partnership is not likely to produce a dominant partner, nor will it form an interdependent or interlocking relationship. Both personalities need freedom from interference in their lifestyle, and once this is assured they may begin to develop some measure of closeness and mutual trust. Due to a natural urge to give orders and to have their own way, the Three may at the early stages of the relationship unwittingly attempt to take charge. They will soon be frustrated and put in place by the broader vision, greater understanding of life and elusive nature of the Twenty-Nine. The Three may thereafter settle down to a semi-independent life, tacitly accepting the guidance and reassurance of their wiser partner. Twenty-Nines do not entertain the idea of direct leadership but attract many responsibilities of leadership. They are most comfortable in a partnership of equals. This will be difficult to reach with a Three partner on account of high standards of conduct set by the Twenty-Nine. Much confusion is inevitable when the Three does not measure up to these standards and, furthermore, not all Twenty-Nines maintain their own high standards. Both personalities will lead restless and busy lives as several aspects of their nature call for attention at the same time. A little loneliness or occasional inactivity will be too much for either to bear. Functioning as a strong twosome will not be easy as their tastes and moods may not always coincide. The Twenty-Nine, especially, is subject to sudden pessimistic moods that may be brought on for no apparent reason, but may be triggered off by some petty action or remark by the Three. Since an ego-centred personality is usually unable to understand that to which they give no thought, the Three will find it hard to properly appreciate the largely impersonal, humanitarian and global thought processes of the Twenty-Nine, whose kinship with all living things covers a wide range of observation and feeling.

Professional employment involving a broad-based contact with people will attract both partners. The Twenty-Nine’s contacts will be quite far-reaching. There will be little attachment shown to a domestic way of life by both parties. Although the Twenty-Nine may have some intermittent domestic impulses, neither partner will settle comfortably into full-time domestic responsibilities in a quiet and secure suburban setting. No single person or set of circumstances can adequately accommodate the high spirits of the Three or the comprehensive outlook of the Twenty-Nine. As both, in their individual ways, will set out to experience life in its many phases, a lack of unity in their domestic arrangements will inevitably develop. Paid help may be the only alternative to settle this problem.

Domestic shortcomings and lack of cooperation in domestic life is not necessarily carried into their social life. This is one aspect of living to which both parties are attracted. While a host of friends and acquaintances with generally the same tastes will be cultivated by both, the Three will choose to remain for the most part within a peer group, but the Twenty-Nine will be at ease at all levels of personal contact. Whenever there is a need for someone to take up a prominent role in any activity either partner could become the peoples’ choice. A certain amount of friendly rivalry between them is always possible. The Three derives great personal satisfaction from the opportunities for self-expression afforded by an audience, while the Twenty-Nine, especially when motivated by the master vibration 11, is unconscious of personal credit and performs as an impersonal messenger of goodwill. Self-love is stronger in the Three than is the love of neighbour, while the Twenty-Nine with a broader vision, intermingles in society on the principle of love of neighbour. They are more tolerant of contradictory opinions and less demanding of personal attention. This may account for the greater popularity accorded to this personality. While Threes actively cultivate popularity the Twenty-Nine, indifferent to this favour, often achieves popularity with the least effort.

Fluency of speech is a gift enjoyed by both partners, but the employment of this gift is subject to their different temperaments. Threes are witty speakers and lively conversationalists, though they tend to become one-sided, insofar as they show impatience or lose interest when others take their turn to give out their opinions. Twenty-Nines are knowledgeable and informative conversationalists and keen listeners, with the added advantage of expressive body language. In arguments with their Three partners, (and there will be many between this pair) Twenty-Nines will resort to frequent emotional outbursts. Threes will make their point through humour, satire and cutting speech. However, when not emotionally aroused, both partners derive tremendous pleasure from the funny side of things. They are able to look back and laugh at human frailties that may have previously upset them. Despite their volatile natures Twenty-Nines can make up their minds to settle down and discuss personal differences. Their Three partners however may shy away from discussing emotionally charged issues. The wisdom of the Twenty-Nine will be drawn upon as a guiding force in such situations.

Three personalities have difficulty coping with those who do not share their contemporary thoughts and who are unable to associate with them in their outer worldly experiences. Younger Twenty-Nines can do so quite easily and even surpass their Three partners in the enjoyment of the outer pleasures of life. At this stage Threes and Twenty-Nines will find much common ground for use of their leisure hours, especially in art, music, literature and the theatre. However, this seemingly agreeable situation may not last throughout their partnership. As a Twenty-Nine grows into maturity many pleasures previously enjoyed, especially their social outings, become distasteful when deeper spiritual forces inherent in this personality begin to activate. A pressing desire to take up study into the deeper meaning of life overrides many earlier interests. When this stage is reached the Twenty-Nine finds it hard to cope with those who do not share their newly elevated thoughts and newly discovered avenues for expression and self-development. From this stage onward the Twenty-Nine may remain several scales higher than their Three partners in their outlook on life. All Twenty-Nines are reformers at heart, and the urge to improve and reform human conditions will be directed into humanitarian activities at the expense of personal pleasures. There may be attempts to convert their Three partners to their ways of thinking, but these overtures may be rejected resulting in a separation of their private lives. Twenty-Nines will also develop a keen interest in world travel for educational and cultural purposes, which will not always be shared by their Three partners. With the passage of time they are more likely to move away from each other than move towards each other with shared interests.

Financial stability will seldom be achieved in this partnership as neither partner is able to keep a tight rein on expenditure. Although both have an excellent earning capacity they do not have the self-control or sense of financial responsibility to handle money wisely. They are both impulsive spenders with expensive tastes. Rarely will they take time or make an effort to get the best value for their money or confine their expenditure to essential needs. No attachment is shown for money for its own sake or for the security it may ensure in the future. While Threes spend freely on themselves, Twenty-Nines spend generously on themselves and on others. With little commercial sense they are impressionable and vulnerable to deceit by unscrupulous parties. By boosting their egos Threes are easily ensnared and Twenty-Nines are just as easily misled when their sentiments are touched. However, the great advantage both parties possess is their capacity to restore, rebuild and re-establish themselves after adversity. This ability to make a full comeback accelerated will be accelerated when they join forces.

Though the personalities of both partners sparkle with romance and sex-appeal their intimate relationship will not be a smooth one. The success or failure of the Three personality in any loving relationship depends on the amount of love and endearment they receive from their partners. No doubt, this is a need shared by all of us, but a Three personality, particularly once they enter into a romantic relationship, craves to be loved and cared for without cessation. They look for, as their due, much more devotion from their partners than they are prepared to give in return and seldom become aware of this discrepancy in their behaviour. There is a consistency, however, in their expectations and responses which is not found in the Twenty-Nine. The temperamental nature of the Twenty-Nine is in no way conducive to a calm and well-balanced love relationship. Periodically, these individuals turn from being warm, loving and self-sacrificing partners to cool, distant people with very puzzling moods. A Three partner will be at a genuine loss to handle such highs and lows in behaviour. Their self-confidence, which is largely built upon the love and admiration they receive from their partners, will be severely impaired. In the meantime, the Twenty-Nine would remain unhappy and frustrated with themselves in their unending battle to rationalise and overcome their fluctuations of mood. Twenty-Nines also demand freedom of action and movement, and at the best of times the three will not receive their concentrated attention. Despite their volatile natures Twenty-Nines possess great depths of love and loyalty, but the self-centred Three will not gauge the comprehensive nature of this partner and consequently resent having to share their attention with others involved in their busy lifestyle. Though younger Twenty-Nines have the same desire for love and romance as their Three partners their love life is always turbulent. They fall in love with great intensity but romance quickly fades away if their partners fail to live up to the ideal of their dreams. Threes usually do so as they refuse to comply with standards set by the Twenty-Nine. Though their sense of romance never leaves them older Twenty-Nines are less dependent on sentimental attachments as they are able to take up other pursuits during romantic interludes. Threes on the other hand need to be always involved in love and romance over and above their other activities.

Stronger individuality and a firm sense of direction will be shown by Threes and Twenty-Nines born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. These individuals will face each other and the world with positive attitudes. While there are bound to be several personality clashes they also have a good chance of sensibly reconciling their differences by using the realistic and practical attributes provided by the 1 vibration. If one partner only is born in one of these months, the decision making role will be taken over by this partner, but not without considerable opposition on the part of the other. If neither partner has the self-directing 1 vibration in the birth month the partnership will lack order and stability.

3RD AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS

Three personalities are produced by the 3rd as well as the 30th days of the month. The compatibility of a couple who are both born on the 3rd will be slightly different to a couple who are both born on the 30th. The Zero tends to emphasise the power of the vibrations of any number, especially a birthday number. The present combination of birthdays will therefore produce a regular Three personality, on the one hand, and, on the other hand a Three personality whose 3 characteristics may be emphasised.

The vibrations of the birth month and other spheres of influence play a constructive part in forming the integral personality. The emphasis acquired by a Thirty could be retained or it could be lost in the overall personality structure – This is a point to be kept in mind when comparing these birthdays. Despite a possible variation in the intensity of 3 characteristics in this combination, the chapter on 3rd and 3rd birthdays will more than adequately cover the issue of compatibility.

3RD AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS

Interaction between a straightforward Three personality and a qualified Four personality will be seen in this combination. Their relationship will be the same as that between a Three and another qualified Four, namely an individual born on the 13th day of any month. It may be mentioned that the influence of the 3 vibration is slightly stronger in the Thirty-One than in the Thirteen because the 3 comes before the 1, but this does not make any appreciable difference in their interaction with a Three personality.

The chapter on 3rd and 13th birthdays should be consulted.

3RD AND 17TH BIRTHDAYS

3rd and 17th birthdays set side by side and examined for compatibility in their vibratory structure reveal a greater proportion of dissimilarities than similarities. Not only do we find that their vibrations are of a different character but we are also faced with a situation of a single digit birthday matched with a multiple digit birthday. Subjects of the former are activated by the relatively unqualified power of a single vibration, while those of the latter are complicated by a mixture of three vibrations. The conduct of a personality with a single digit birthday is usually predictable due to the absence of complexity. Further, the unavoidable adjustments in any partnership with this type of partner are made easier. In a multiple digit birthday one has often to cope with a two or three-part personality and this situation poses some difficulties for the single-digit partner, whose vision is usually focused in one dimension.

The Three personality is the product of a vibration symbolising the principle of youth. Youthful traits such as fresh, quick-witted and nimble minds that instantly pick up new knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness are clearly evident in Three personalities of all ages. They are proud of their individuality, and are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to express themselves in a variety of ways. They usually succeed in gaining the centre of attention wherever they are. They are natural performers who cannot be relegated to the sidelines. On a negative note, their active mental attitudes are often directed into a mixture of self-defeating activities. They are all too frequently overcome by the temptation to try out new things, and they do so at the expense of matters they have already taken in hand. It is not unusual to see a Three give up something when they are only half-way through and turn to something that seems more attractive. Most Threes have yet to overcome ego-centred thought processes and develop awareness of their position as part of a world consciousness and not islands by themselves. This characteristic is highlighted when they are compared with the relatively impersonal and comprehensive though processes of the Seventeen.

Unlike many multiple digit birthdays where the individual power of each vibration may be generally modified or have counteracting influences on each other, the 1, 7 and 8 vibrations in the 17th birthday have so many similar qualities that their united action enhances the overall power of these common features. As an added advantage there are not many contradictory elements introduced into this birthday. Seventeens are also confirmed individualists in the sense that they are motivated by free and independent thought and action. They are self-teachers who conduct their own research and study. They do not imitate the behaviour or follow the lead of others. Their individualism, however, differs from that of the Three insofar as it is not put on display or set up for others to emulate. Their self-assurance, self-sufficiency and greater objectivity obviate the need for advancing their egos. Their individualistic ways are confronted only in a close association of one form or another. Some qualities which the 1, 7 and 8 vibrations have in common which, among other things, contribute to their particular type of individualism, are willpower, authority, forethought, deliberation, courage, dependability, dedication, mental analysis, financial acumen, emotional restraint and an aversion for all forms of pettiness. On the negative side this mixture creates traits of intolerance, impatience and uncooperative and self-righteous attitudes. A Three partner faced with these reinforced characteristics may find life with a Seventeen rather strict and restricting.

Despite soft emotional centres in both partners demonstration of their emotions is restricted. The purely mental nature of the 3 vibration diverts the Three’s emotions into powerful imaginative channels which lead to artistic expression, appreciation of beauty in all things and orally presented body language. Seventeens have the emotional 8 vibration in their personality complex, but its emotional qualities are held in check by the strong physical 1 and 7 vibrations. These vibrations engender a strong distaste for emotional display in any form. They look for physical activity to focus their feelings. Rather than unwittingly overlook each other’s emotionality, these partners will need to realise and respond tactfully to their emotional needs.

The basic difference between Threes and Seventeens is found in the youthful nature of the 3 vibration controlling the Three partner, and in the Seventeen, by the mature qualities of the 7 and 8 supported by the urgency of the 1. These partners find themselves on different wavelengths so that they inhabit different worlds for the most part. Threes do not ponder over their experiences. They interpret them optimistically and light-heartedly, while Seventeens are thoughtful, cautious, analytical and even suspicious at times. These differences in outlook will disturb both, but the effect on the Seventeen will be proportionately greater as they expect their partners to live up to fairly exacting standards. Threes are open personalities who experience no difficulty in putting their ideas, feelings and desires across. Seventeens usually live in a private world preferring to keep their ideas and desires to themselves. Also, a certain degree of oral restriction presents them from giving adequate expression to their thoughts and feelings on the rare occasions they may wish to do so. In many ways a Three/Seventeen partnership will be an illustration of spontaneity verses rigidity.

They are both decisive individuals whose minds are seldom clouded by doubt. The Three’s decisions are spontaneous, while the Seventeen’s are the result of deliberation, forethought and intuition. Threes have strong wills but may be wanting in judgment, but Seventeens invariably act from a position of strength and judgment. Threes may change their minds, as their imagination constantly sees alternatives that are seemingly more attractive. In order to meet a Seventeen partner on the same terms or place the partnership on an equal footing, the Three will need to step down from a sphere of imagination to a sphere of practicality. If not, the Seventeen will doubtlessly take charge of most of the practical aspects of their relationship and consequently assume a position of greater authority. The chances are that this will be a dual career partnership as neither partner is particularly housebound. Household duties will need to be taken up as a joint undertaking. Work undertaken by the Seventeen will usually be of a specialised nature while that of the Three will be generalised. These partners could easily become locked in a power struggle for the distribution of authority and responsibility within the home. Seventeens need relief at regular periods from the hustle and bustle of public and social life. This is sought in the peace and tranquillity of a stable home life, which they do their best to establish. Their attraction to home is based on their love of privacy rather than any love for housekeeping. Apart from fulfilling, with quiet efficiency, all necessary household duties, Seventeens will fulfil their need for their own company in home oriented hobbies. Given a free choice, Threes will involve themselves in their careers, social life and hobbies without becoming tied down by domestic routine.

The Three’s development of a good self-image and a happy lifestyle is closely tied to success in social life. These natural extroverts adapt easily to the social features of their environment. Seventeens are not as socially responsive. They are not extroverted in the manner of the Three. They usually occupy a position between introversion and extroversion. Unlike their convivial and modernistic Three partners, they are strictly selective of the company they move in, and choose the conservative elements of social life when they do so. For entirely different reasons, independence of group standards is a feature shared by both partners. Threes are leaders and pioneers in social undertakings while Seventeens remain detached and disinterested in the social whirl, having less need for interaction with people, or for outward display of their talents. Their leadership qualities are usually reserved for business life. Seventeens may act as a good foil for any social excess by the Three partner and the Three, in turn, could draw out the Seventeen from a serious outlook on life into light-hearted interludes.

A feature that clearly distinguishes these partners is their form of speech. While the single force controlling the Three is one of the outstanding speech vibrations, none of those comprising the Seventeen is conducive to richness and fluency of speech. Threes are great talkers who experience no difficulty imparting their thoughts on others. Conversation does not languish when a Three is part of a group. They can be depended upon to introduce topics of conversation and take a leading part in their discussion. Seventeens are reluctant to reveal their thoughts and feelings. They overcome this problem by putting their thoughts in a nutshell while Threes may often lose themselves in an excess of verbiage. While the Seventeen may often become irritated by the Three’s talkative habits they will always benefit from their sense of humour and absence of moodiness. The Three, in turn, should not take the Seventeen’s insistence on periods of silence as a form of ill feeling, but instead correctly interpret and appreciate the Seventeen’s periodic need for introspective pleasures. The body language of the Three discloses an unusual combination of friendliness and authority, while that of the Seventeen shows distance and authority. Seventeens are easily bored by trivial topics of conversation and resort to a habit of getting lost in thought, and as a result, lose track of what is being said around them. A Three partner, who always insists on being heard finds this habit most aggravating.

In their spare time these partners may not always do things as a pair. They are more likely to spend leisure time apart, without feeling guilty about their personal interests. On the contrary, mutual respect will be shown towards each other’s activities. Good literature, inquiry into the deeper meaning of life and open air hobbies, such as gardening will hold the interest of the Seventeen. Aviaries and fish ponds are often found in their gardens. Threes expend their powerful imagination and creative energy in the artistic side of life. They are happiest where there is fun and fellowship. Periods of inactivity will be a real trial. Most of their hobbies will be socially oriented so that their talents as natural entertainers can be used. The non-competitive nature of the 7 vibration within the Seventeen influences the rest of the personality. This often keeps them away from many forms of competitive sport. The Three has no such restriction and their youthful nature has them involved in sport, in one form or another, throughout their lives.

The Three personality may have the benefit of the best speech vibration but the Seventeen is favoured by no less than three of the best financial vibrations. Threes may have a high sense of accuracy and a flair for accountancy or any other profession where accuracy is needed; however, this special talent does not influence the practical aspects of money management in their personal lives. Their natural impatience and enthusiasm for keeping up with everything that is new deprives them of the ability to plan their finances and maintain a course of action up to the maturity of their plans. They choose to spend freely with the optimistic attitude that their finances will always be replenished – and more often than not this does happen. Seventeens, on the other hand, have a highly responsible money sense which is applied in public as well as private life. All three vibrations controlling their personality combine to make them cautious spenders, careful savers and wise investors. Threes and Seventeens should handle their own expenditure as many arguments will arise in a joint arrangement. Threes may regard the Seventeen as mean spenders, but this will be an unfair judgment. Seventeens simply do not indulge in shopping for shopping sake. They purchase only what they need and always demand value for money spent. Their personal wants are much less than those of the Three as they do not feel impelled to keep up with the latest trends or personal adornment.

The contrast between the cheerful and romantic nature of the Three and the serious and reserved nature of the Seventeen will have a strong impact on their intimate lives. There will be advantages as well as disadvantages in this contrast. The joyful and open-hearted disposition of the Three will certainly lift the Seventeen out of a customary seriousness. Seventeens tend to become absorbed in more work and less play, and often the nature of the work taken up by most Seventeens does not allow the entry of light-hearted moments. On the other hand, Threes are always open to gaiety and good humour and choose types of work which give them freedom to express these qualities. In their attempts to influence their Seventeen partners with their romantic ways most Threes will succeed provided they choose the correct time and place to do so. Seventeens are by no means unromantic, but they need to be drawn out of their reserved and often self-conscious behaviour. They should be reminded of their habit of paying too much attention to their careers and hobbies and failure to set aside time to be close to their partners. Three personalities need much more personal attention than do Seventeens. The Seventeen’s ability to judge objectively will give them a quicker understanding of their own nature and of the nature of their Three partners. Threes measure people against themselves and are often misled into wrong interpretations. Understanding the many hidden sides of the Seventeen’s personality will take a genuine effort on the part of the Three. The Seventeen will have the responsibility of exercising greater wisdom, which they undoubtedly possess, and helping the Three gain this understanding.

By virtue of the 1 vibrations and the mature qualities of the 7 and 8, Seventeens are already positive personalities. Threes depend on other areas of their birth date and name to provide the 1 vibration to ensure positivity. Ability to make decisions is the fundamental quality of a positive nature. When both partners have this positive disposition the partnership may be tempestuous but the very fact that they have different personality traits and talents will give them value as a team. Threes and Seventeens will no doubt recognise this, but both may experience difficulty adjusting to an equal partnership as a cooperative attitude is not a quality that is strong in either. In a partnership between a Three and Seventeen in which the Three is born in any month other than the 1st, 10th, 11th, and 12th there will not be a battle of wills as the Seventeen will be much stronger and take charge of all important decisions.

3RD AND 18TH BIRTHDAYS

Some special problems are faced in a partnership in which one partner has a single digit birthday and the other a multiple digit birthday, and which are not found in a partnership where both have a single digit birthday or both have multiple digit birthdays. The 3rd and 18th birthday combination is no exception. The Three personality faces the world through the single observation point and power of expression of the mentally oriented and youthful 3 vibration. This individual may have the assistance of other vibrations in the birth date and name which provide other openings, but these will be secondary to the power of the 3 vibration. The 18th birthday, on the other hand, with the combined force of the 1, 8 and 9 vibrations provides a broader view of life. The personality has the use of three principal observation points and three principal vehicles of expression. A Three partner will find difficulty in understanding the complex elements which make up the Eighteen’s personality; and indeed, due to their ego-centred nature, may not bother to make an effort to do so. The chances are that they will proceed to live their lives according to their own standards set by natural qualities of optimism, freedom, friendliness and the desire for a life filled with pleasurable activity. There is nothing that is grasping or selfish in the nature of the Three, unless one may regard the Three’s need for personal attention as too demanding. The greater wisdom of the Eighteen will have no difficulty understanding the less complicated Three partner; but beyond an understanding of the Three’s nature the Eighteen will not have much control over a positive Three partner, much as they may try to do. A negative Three, however, will easily fall under the influence of the powerful Eighteen. No Eighteen personality can be negative by reason of a lack of willpower, good self-image and self-confidence. The presence of the 1 vibration in a position of considerable strength ensures a positive nature.

In many ways the single Eight personality may be regarded as the ‘elder brother’ of the single One. Several characteristics they have in common are, however, not of the same degree of merit or demerit. While 1 characteristics manifest at a primal stage, 8 characteristics, by successive stages of development, have reached a mature and rounded-off state. For instance, the plain One’s preoccupation with their own personality and personal affairs has long emerged in the Eight personality from these self-centred habits into an attunement with the vibrations of those around them. Autocratic leadership qualities of the One are tempered by sensitivity and a keen sense of justice. Individual effort is replaced by good organisation, good example and a talent for delegation of responsibility. The combination of the powers of the 1 and 8 in the 18th birthday produces a person of extraordinary leadership and organising capacity. While the 1 provides willpower and a strong self-image, the ‘senior’ qualities of the 8 override brash characteristics of the single 1. Furthermore, there is the 9 vibration underlying the 1 and 8. This, in fact, forms the corner-stone of the personality. Unlike some other multiple birthdays which have conflicting vibrations, the three vibrations within the 18th integrate in a manner which greatly strengthens the personality. The 1 and 8 share common ground in practical, material and realistic values. The 8 and 9, due to certain dualistic aspects of the 8, share common ground in emotional life giving the personality a sense of natural justice and humanitarian attitudes. An unusual feature of the superior potential of an Eighteen is the capacity to satisfy a selfish and altruistic need by a single action.

Both partners are natural leaders who automatically resist direct commands. While the leadership qualities of the positive Three are strong, those of the Eighteen are even stronger. Both partners will insist on making their own decisions and show intolerance towards contrary opinions. Their first reaction will be to reject pressures or demands either has not initiated themselves. They are so certain of their own ground that they will resist giving each other a hearing. In the frequent clash of wills that will take place between an Eighteen and a positive Three, the Eighteen will display greater persistence and determination to gain their point of view. Their innate sense of justice and fair play will however influence the eventual result. A patient Three (unfortunately there are not many) can easily break down the attack and defence of an Eighteen by wisely evoking the compassionate side of their nature. Eighteens put their heart, minds and strong physical bodies into whatever they do. Their infectious enthusiasm motivates those around them to perform beyond their normal inclinations. While not sparing their own energies, they set out to extract the best they can get out of those under their direction. This is a quality which makes the Eighteen successful leaders, organisers, teachers and coaches.

An Eighteen homemaker will be competent, well organised and house-proud. They will also be authoritarian, hardworking and ambitious for the material success of family members. They cannot, however, be restricted to household duties. Their talents and ambitions will not let them sit back while a partner provides the family’s needs. Their natural element is the mainstream of public life, either in business or in a career that brings out their talents for organisation and administration. Homemaking is not a specialty of the Three personality either. They are essentially career persons whose versatility of talent seeks freedom of expression in several directions. They perform at their best in positions which provide scope for self-expression as creative and performing artists. Their sense of detail and accuracy can also be used in accountancy and their extraordinary gift of speech and flair for showmanship can be directed into politics, the law or religious ministry. A household with luxuries of the best quality will be the outcome of the high earning capacity of both partners.

Their home will be a busy one as much of their time will be spent in public life and in social activities. Though neither partner is susceptible to the influence of others or to the wind of circumstance, they have several extroverted characteristics that promote goodwill and friendship. They interact with each other and in groups without extinguishing their identities as individuals. They experience no anxiety facing new situations and new company. However, both partners will need to work upon themselves in order to be able to abide by consensus of opinion and adapt to cooperative behaviour. This applies not only in their own social programming but also in their general social conduct. All Eighteens and positive Threes effortlessly hold the centre of attention. A Three who is negatively inclined can do just as well, but their performance may be spoilt by egoistic displays. While Eighteens generally have control over themselves, they are not entirely free from impulsive bouts of behaviour which are out of character with their usual way of doing things. Extra sensitivity adds more stresses to their social and public life. They also possess certain personality traits that lead them to experience a high degree of frustration when others do not measure up to their standards. They are not very stimulating company when they go through these phases of behaviour. These emotional disturbances are usually the cause of their periodic and selective sociability, as compared with the Three’s sustained sociability. The Three is not free from emotional tumult, but they are able to gain relief through interaction with people while the Eighteen seeks isolation until their feelings settle down to normal.

Their method of oral communication shows noticeable differences. The Three finds pleasure in speech during their emotional ‘highs’ and relief during their ‘lows’, while Eighteens are commanding speakers during their ‘highs’ but if they fall into their ‘lows’ they soon resort to silence and introverted behaviour. While fluency of speech is unrestricted in the Three, the eloquence of the 9 vibration in the Eighteen is restrained by the forthright and plain-spoken habits of the 1 and 8 vibrations. This takes off some of the sparkle and imagination that is characteristic of the mental numbers 3, 6 and 9. The Three’s free and open sense of humour will not always be taken in the spirit in which it is given by the sensitive Eighteen. This partner may often become irritated by the Three’s need to maintain a constant flow of talk. The more negative Threes are full of opinions and given to rambling conversation which the practical nature of the Eighteen will find intolerable. Threes should know when to stop if they wish to be heard by their Eighteen partners.

Threes and Eighteens will certainly find sympathetic ground in the wide field of sport; though once again, personality differences will be observed in their general attitudes. While the Three personality is certainly competitive, the Eighteen is competitive as well as combative. Most Threes become involved in sport for the love of the game and participation in the social aspects of sport. Eighteens aim at victory for its own sake. Their instinctive reaction to winning or losing is much more amplified than those of the Three. The social aspects of the game take up a distant second place. As they play to win at all costs their subsequent moods following a win or a loss have a direct influence on their family life. Apart from a common interest in sport, these partners may not do much else as a twosome. In their spare time they may find each other’s presence restricting. The Three will have a greater variety of interests as this partner will make sure that responsibilities of public life do not interfere with personal pleasures. The Eighteen on the other hand may let the reverse situation take place and consequently have precious little time left for personal outlets and family togetherness.

The 1 and 8 vibrations in the 18th birthday are among the most gainful and responsible financial vibrations. Value consciousness, attachment to wealth and the power that it brings are among the chief characteristics acquired through these vibrations. At the same time, the influence of the open-handed 9 vibration at fundamental levels of the personality breaks down elements of acquisitiveness and possessiveness, and introduces counteracting qualities of charity and generosity. The Eighteen may be regarded as well-balanced and trustworthy in regard to all financial matters. Any form of partnership will be in good hands with this personality in charge of expenditure. The 3 vibration provides tremendous earning capacity but not an appreciation for the value of money. The Three has no further need for money beyond its use for the satisfaction of personal wants. They are free spenders who have no attachment to money as a means of power or security. Their natural optimistic views on life prevents feelings of mistrust and anxiety over their financial future from gaining a hold on them.

The average Eighteen personality is open to certain habits that are not likely to conform with the romantic notions of a Three partner. Their tendency to become over-dedicated to regular work or an avocation, with little time and energy left for close family relations could become a major problem. They are also likely to introduce into family life the same discipline, ambition and efficiency they expect from others in public life. Without being conscious of doing so, they will attempt to manage the lives of their loved ones. These tendencies are certain to upset the less stringent lifestyle favoured by the Three. The absence of the same degree of light-hearted romanticism will be a significant factor that may create some distance between these partners. Individuals such as the Eighteen, who have an excess of authoritative elements in their nature, are accustomed to bottle up their feelings. They are not always able to express emotion through touching and other forms of endearment. However, running parallel to this characteristic is their awareness and consideration for the needs of others. This is made evident in their high sense of duty which they convert into many practical ways. Although the Three may be intellectually aware of the Eighteen’s emotional needs they may not always reciprocate the same empathy displayed by the Eighteen. Both partners will need to overcome their reluctance to discuss emotionally charged issues before they gain good rapport with one another. Self-oriented behaviour of the Three and authoritative ways of the Eighteen are more likely to lead to competitive and divisive behaviour than to the application of a team-spirit.

Eighteens and positive Threes will have several personality adjustments to make before they team up successfully, If this can be done, the partnership will develop into one of tremendous strength and productivity. In a partnership in which the Three partner is born in any month other than the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months there is an easier chance for a good team to be formed as the Three will be less adamant in maintaining an equal or superior position and will be more amenable to the responsible leadership of the Eighteen.

3RD AND 19TH BIRTHDAYS

The odd numbers conspicuous in both birthdays represent active vibrations, as opposed to the receptive nature of even numbers. While the 3rd day of the month has the concentrated influence of the 3 vibration, the 19th has the cumulative effect of the 1 and 9. People born on the 3rd day of the month are not always seen with 3 characteristics manifesting in positive ways. For the Three personality to do so the 1 vibration, which is the motivating factor behind all growth and advancement, is needed in the birth month, or in one or more of the other spheres of influence. If not, negative 3 traits may emerge to inhibit the expression of many outstanding 3 qualities. People born on the 19th enter this world equipped with the strong motivational force of the 1, as well as the comprehensive qualities of the advanced 9 vibration. Their positivity is already secured not only by the presence of the 1 in the foreground of the personality but also at fundamental levels. The 19th day produces a One personality as this number reduces to 1 (1+ 9 = 10 = 1). Though the Nineteen personality is in fact a One, all 1 qualities are greatly enriched by the influence of the 9 vibration. The characteristics of the 1 vibration are related to the beginning of human experience and those of the 9, to the completion of human experience. The essential nature of the former is substantially ego-centred and self-seeking, while that of the latter is selfless and world-centred. A mixture of ingenuity and wisdom results when the 1 and 9 vibrations work in unison in the Nineteen personality. In particular, the egocentricity of the plain One is replaced in the Nineteen/One by the humanitarian outlook of the 9 vibration. The relationship between a Three and a Nineteen/One will be different to that between a Three and a plain One.

The characteristic of ego-centredness natural to the plain One is also found in the Three personality. A partnership between a Three and a Nineteen will therefore be one between an individual who relates self to all things and all things to self, and another who can emerge out of self-orientation and view life on a much broader spectrum. The self-centredness of the Three has an emotional basis rather than a material or physical one. All Threes are generous and open-hearted people with little attachment to material things for their own sake. They are ever ready to share their possessions and experiences. Attachment is to their egos and their extraordinary need to feel loved and have their achievements recognised. In positive Threes this trait goes largely unnoticed as their pleasant and entertaining ways obscure much of their ego-centredness. In negative Threes the need for the attention and the adulation of others is just as strong, but their effervescent 3 characteristics are not as easily expressed. As a result, their ego-centredness is exposed when they resort to certain patterns of behaviour, which could be either devious or ostentatious, in order to bolster their egos.

Nineteens are by no means totally selfless and self-sacrificing. They do have a good deal of their attention anchored on self, but their objective ways of thinking and wider perspectives place them on a different dimension to that of subjective Threes. They are more self-sufficient and emotionally better adjusted. The Three needs to first receive the attention and admiration of others before they give of themselves – and they do give a great deal towards uplifting the wellbeing of others. The Nineteen gives first, and without conscious effort on their part receive due recognition and appreciation.

Almost all positive 3 characteristics, such as leadership, originality, creativity, extroversion, imagination, ambition, power with words and artistic talent are contained in the Nineteen through the 1 and 9 vibrations. Most of them, in fact, appear in an enriched form. At the same time many youthful 3 characteristics are rejected by the mature tastes of the Nineteen. There will be little that can be exchanged for mutual benefit, as this partnership will essentially be one between a mentally active but youthful person and a mentally active, but mature personality. Though Threes are self-involved and place great value on their individuality they are at the same time quite dependent on interaction with others. Nineteens risk having to put up with negative 3 qualities such as vanity, pettiness, waste, extravagance, constant talk and cutting criticism. Threes, however, will not be burdened by lingering forms of negativity as there is little room for these forces to enter the Nineteen. Even such negative forces caused by environmental conditioning will eventually be rejected by the Nineteen. Threes may not always appreciate the positive aspects of a Nineteen partner. Though Nineteens may inspire confidence in most other personality types, the Three may consider them to be authoritative and restrictive. They will not readily fit into the scheme of things envisaged by a Nineteen partner. However, the reverse situation is less likely to occur. The lighter touch, natural to the Three, will not respond to the deeper forces of the Nineteen.

To issue instructions and orders is the natural propensity of both Threes and Nineteens. When found too long in a position where they have to await orders and unquestioningly carry them out they become discontented and rebellious. A Three may conform to discipline and rules for a short time, but will not be content to remain in a subordinate position for long. As their natural station is one of leadership they will sooner or later seek to establish themselves in a position of authority, command or pre-eminence. Just as, at a certain stage of their lives, they obeyed rules set by others, they will expect the same response to their instructions and directions. This trait will be carried into any form of partnership they may enter. Difficulties will certainly be encountered in a partnership with a Nineteen. As autocratic leadership is one of the strongest forces of the 1 vibration, this part of the Nineteen partner will reject the Three’s attempts to take charge. This rejection will occur despite the fact that many autocratic ways of the 1 vibration have been tempered by the wisdom of the 9. Furthermore, the 9 vibration, far from being a placid vibration, is in fact one of leadership – but, a leadership by example. The combination of two forms of leadership in the Nineteen will result in this partner eventually taking overall charge of the partnership. This will take place without friction with a negative Three but, with a positive Three, a constant clash of wills can be expected.

The authoritative nature of these partners, displayed in their individual style, can be seen in the way they carry themselves. There is a degree of jauntiness in the carriage of the Three which demonstrates their optimism, love of life and belief that the world revolves around them. The natural posture of the Nineteen shows a combination of authority and wisdom which draws the attention of people. Neither of these personalities will be found in a slumping position; nor will they be found leaning against posts or furniture indicating that they are looking for support for feelings of inadequacy or timidity.

Both partners are career-oriented. They may unavoidably compete with each other as both have high ambition and the capacity to fulfil their ambitions. They need financial independence and the challenges found in interaction with people in public life. They usually achieve success and fame in politics, the professions and in Government Service. The domestic side of life will not receive the dedication of either partner. Assistance of a third party will be required for management of household responsibilities.

Among several points of resemblance between individuals ruled by the mentally based 3 and 9 vibrations, extroversion and sociability are among the most prominent. Consequently, the Three personality and the Nineteen will find compatible interests in their social life. Though both are socially well adjusted and should enjoy an active social life, the Nineteen has greater self-sufficiency and therefore less dependence on friends and acquaintances. They gain social popularity without too much effort on their part. Threes, on the other hand, set out to gain popularity due to an inner anxiety of being overlooked. This anxiety is really unfounded as most Threes gain popularity by just being their lively selves. In their choice of company Threes and Nineteens will not show much dissimilarity. Both will choose to move in artistic circles, and especially with people who have developed the art of good conversation. Threes, however, are more party-minded and are inclined to prolong their stay. They are not time-conscious when enjoying themselves; nor will they realise that they may be overstaying their welcome. Their Nineteen partners will have the troublesome duty of calling an end to their enjoyment.

With no hint of shyness in their manner both partners are articulate talkers with the potential to become eloquent speech makers. Threes gain a reputation as entertaining and humorous conversationalists, while Nineteens become known as knowledgeable communicators. Though both are able to verbalise their thoughts and feelings, the Nineteen has greater control over the power of speech, especially the ability to contain anger in the face of frustration. This has the inevitable result of increasing their verbal effectiveness. Many Threes damage their capacity to reach others by talking too much. They should know when to stop talking if they wish to be heard by their Nineteen partners. The Nineteen, at the same time, should understand that the Three’s vivid imagination and natural talents as an entertainer make them express their thoughts in dramatic and colourful language. They cannot resist adding a bit here and there and colouring the truth a bit in order to come up with an entertaining story. For a verbal contest to be set on reasonably equal terms the Three partner will need to be a positive personality. If not, the Nineteen will always have the upper hand. A positive Three will, in the short term, win a contest, but the greater staying power and wisdom of the Nineteen will prevail in the long term.

Both partners will pick their hobbies and leisure activities from mentally oriented pursuits. Their professional and social life will be closely associated with many of their leisure activities. Due to this common ground they will choose to spend their leisure together without feeling restrained or hemmed in by an excess of each other’s company. If they resist the temptation to compete with one another, and instead pool their resources, they will make a very successful team that will not only provide mutual pleasure but will also benefit many others. Some areas in which they can combine successfully as a team will be as musicians, entertainers, hosts and hostesses, painters and art critics, choreographers, decorators, florists, designers, social editors, evangelists, poets and office bearers in social and sporting clubs.

Another factor held in common by people influenced by the 3 and 9 vibrations is their indifference to money and material possessions for their own sake. The generous disposition of their mentally oriented natures is responsible for this non-attachment. However, the control of financial and material aspects of a Three/Nineteen partnership will not fall into unsafe hands as the Nineteen is a One personality and the financial side of life will be guided by the influence of the 1 vibration. This vibration provides a trustworthy attitude towards money management. Those influenced by this vibration are value conscious and often closefisted, except when they turn to self-indulgence. The 9 vibration within the Nineteen breaks down self-interest and introduces a benevolent and humanitarian attitude towards expenditure. The combination of 1 and 9 qualities in the Nineteen ensures responsible and fair management of the partnership’s finances. The Three partner will be capable of high earning power and contributing generously to the family budget, but will not show skill in budgeting, saving and general good management of personal or family finances. As long as a generous share of money is available for personal needs, the Three should not interfere in the Nineteen’s control of their finances.

Life’s responsibilities and life’s pleasures are taken in the same spirit of enthusiasm and optimism by most Threes. One aspect is not neglected in favour of the other. As they are flexible and changeable in their attitude towards work and play they are able to mix the two without causing disorientation in their lives. In their intimate lives they could make demands at times when the attention of their Nineteen partner is directed on other matters. Their bright imagination, love of beauty, love of excitement and fluent oral expression make them true romantics. Being always young at heart their love life is kept alive and never allowed to lapse into staleness. Nineteen partners should be able to keep up with these romantic Threes in the mutual enjoyment of an exciting love life. Although the 1 vibration has few romantic notions it does have a vigorous and adventurous spirit. The 9 vibration in the Nineteen will provide the sentimental and imaginative qualities similar to the 3. Flirtatious behaviour found in many Threes will not be found in the average Nineteen.

While all Nineteens are assuredly positive personalities, Threes may also be regarded as being so, provided they are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months which contribute the activator 1 vibration. Threes born in other months are exposed to the negative traits of the 3 vibration. Personality clashes are inevitable between Nineteens and positive Threes. Compatibility can only be achieved by several personality adjustments and sharing of responsibility and authority. Compatibility will be much easier between a Nineteen and a Three partner who is not wholly positive. These Threes will sooner or later acknowledge the greater stability and authority of the Nineteen.

3RD AND 20TH BIRTHDAYS

The 20th day of the month produces a Two personality in whom characteristics of the 2 vibration are intensified. The relationship between a Three personality and a Twenty will be very much the same as the relationship between a Three and a straight Two, born on the 2nd. The chapter on the 2nd and 3rd birthdays should be consulted. However, the intensification of 2 characteristics in the Twenty, which is caused by the presence of the Zero, should be kept in mind.

A positive Twenty is one who was born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. A positive Three is also one who was born in one of these months. A combination of these positive types will be compatible and productive. While a certain amount of compatibility will be achieved between partners born outside these months, productivity will be low. The partnership will lack strong leadership, direction and decision. However, in the event of one partner having one of these birth months the partnership will be as compatible and almost as productive as that between two positive partners. The direction of the partnership and decision making role will be in the care of the positive partner. If it happens to be the Three partner greater enterprise and ambition will be displayed due to the natural leadership qualities of the 3 vibration.

For the most part positivity or negativity in a personality is determined by the presence or absence of the active 1 vibration in the birthday or birth month. There are however other spheres of influence that can provide the 1 vibration and help overcome negative traits caused by its absence; the principal negative trait being the lack of self-confidence.

3RD AND 21ST BIRTHDAYS

Three personalities are produced by both birthdays – straightforward Threes by the 3rd and qualified Threes by the 21st. The nature of the relationship between people born on these days will be nearly the same as that between those born on the 3rd and 12th. The chapter on these birthdays should be referred to.

The difference between the 12th and 21st birthdays is seen in the degree of influence of the 2 vibration. The first number of any birth date has the strongest influence. The 2 vibration is the second number in the 12th and therefore its receptive forces become subject to the combined influence of the active 1 and 3 vibrations. As the 2 is the first number in the 21st, its influence is not as easily subdued by the 1/3 combination. While remaining essentially an active Three personality, the Twenty-One may be taken as having stronger receptive forces than the Twelve.

Twenty-Ones are already positive people. Their positivity is gained from the 1 vibration. Their Three partners depend on the birth month or other significant areas of their name for positive attributes contributed by the 1 vibration. When this is not found in any degree of strength the Twenty-One partner will play the leading role. The form of leadership assumed by the Twenty-One will be more democratic than autocratic. This personality will be prepared to rule by consensus rather than by dogmatic rules. The Three partner’s views will be given consideration and often accepted.

An undoubtedly positive Three is one born in the 1st, 10th, 11th, or 12th months. These Threes will eventually form equal partnerships with Twenty-Ones. They may, in the first instance, attempt to take full charge, but the patience, resilience, and diplomacy of the Twenty-One will eventually force the Three to come to terms on an equal basis. The combination of romantic, imaginative and innovative qualities of both partners will result in a very successful and productive partnership.

3RD AND 22ND BIRTHDAYS

In all likelihood the attraction of opposites will cause persons born on these birthdays to get together. The active vibrations of the 3rd day produce mentally oriented, highly imaginative, creative and dynamic personalities. The quality of leadership in one form or another is inherent in all Threes. Either in direct command or as leaders of society, fashion, style or artistic expression, they occupy positions in the foreground of activity. Their extroverted nature, quick minds and extraordinary fluency of speech are some of their most marketable qualities. On the other side of the coin, as it were, Threes are emotionally vulnerable, dependent on the care and attention of loved ones and weak in practical aptitudes. The Twenty-Two personality contains the emotionally oriented 2 vibration in double strength, and the physically based 4 vibration. Interaction of these receptive vibrations gives considerable practical ability and emotional stability in positive Twenty-Twos. Those who are negatively inclined retain practical ability but lose their emotional stability. Direct leadership qualities, distinctive of the Three, are replaced by an exceptional talent for planning and organisation. Extroverted performance in the forefront of affairs is substituted for constructive and productive activity from a less prominent position. While the Three revels in popularity and ego-centred behaviour, Twenty-Twos are in their element when deeply involved in some practical project. They shy away from exhibition of their egos or achievements. While Threes never lose their sense of identity as individuals, the Twenty-Two can easily merge their individuality in their dedication to a cause and into the greater scheme of things. This attitude will be most prominent when a Twenty-Two operates near to the powers of the master vibration. The 22 is the leading master number which contains the qualities of all other numbers. Subjects of a 22nd birthday may be taken as representing one or the other of two vibratory forces, or a mixture of the two. They could be living up to the levels of the unreduced master number or at the lower level of a reduced 4. The former state is exceptional. The latter is the usual condition of Twenty-Twos who are not positively structured. Positive Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, can fluctuate between the level of the 22 and the level of the 4.

Initial moves to advance their relationship will certainly be made by the adventuresome Three. The degree of compatibility between a Three and a Twenty-Two will depend on the degree of positivity or negativity possessed by them. The presence of the 1 vibration in their birth months will ensure that the Three vibrates for the most part to positive Three qualities and the Twenty-Two has the opportunity to reach up to the potential of the master vibration. When Twenty-Twos do not live up to the powers of the master vibration and revert to the virtues of the practical 4, the partnership becomes a Three/ Four combination. However, it will not be the same as one between a Three and a Four born on the 4th day. A Twenty-Two/Four is really a complex Four formed by the double 2. This vibration will never cease to influence the personality. Some degree of attraction towards the power of the master vibration can always be expected. A Twenty-Two/Four will be more versatile and flexible than a straightforward Four.

The strength of the 2 vibration ensures qualities such as diplomacy, tact, patience and cooperation in all Twenty-Twos. These qualities prevent any form of direct confrontation with a Three partner for the assumption of the authoritative role in the partnership. The Three will be allowed considerable leeway in this direction which will turn to the advantage of both partners. The Twenty-Two, when they choose to do so, will get their own way by using the ample subtle and persuasive powers at their disposal. To the satisfaction of both, the partnership could easily form into one in which the Three outwardly takes a leading role and the Twenty-Two in discreet ways also plays a significant part in their life together. Here again, the degree to which each partner will have control and decision making will depend on the degree of positivity or negativity in their make-up.

The attraction of opposites results in couples finding themselves with partners who approach life with different attitudes. High ambition, self-expression in various directions on the mental plane and the desire for interaction with imaginative people, are among the Three’s most cherished needs. A wide field of opportunity is sought for experiencing these needs. The domestic scene with all its varied responsibilities is not seen as providing these opportunities or as a rewarding occupation. Threes, therefore, do not take naturally to a domestic mode of life. Their lack of practicality and dislike of routine and manual tasks also contribute to their avoidance of domestic responsibilities. They are clearly career and socially oriented people who depend on a partner or paid help to look after domestic matters. Twenty-Twos who operate on the 4 vibration will fit into this position willingly and efficiently. They are capable of undertaking dual roles of working at home and taking up responsibility in public life. Free from the distractions of a powerful imagination which pulls a Three in all directions, the Twenty-Two is able to concentrate on routine and practical tasks, and organise their lives with greater efficiency. A Twenty-Two who operates close to the master vibration will refuse to be completely tied down to domesticity. The dynamic forces within steer them into public life. However, unlike their Three partners they are capable of undertaking full-time public duties and taking care of household responsibilities. The ideal situation will still be for outside help to be brought in for routine household tasks.

The extroverted nature of both partners should guarantee a pleasurable and congenial social life. The fact that they look at the world from different observation points can be used for mutual benefit rather than to their disadvantage. Threes are natural entertainers. Their outgoing nature, backed by their powerful imagination and constant need for self-expression draw them inevitably into the centre of activity. No Three person can be relegated to the background for long. They will use positive or negative ways to impress their presence on company, or draw attention to themselves. Positive Threes are usually the life of a party, and in their interaction with others, they gain as much enjoyment as they give out. Negative Threes may push their egos a little too earnestly and despite natural talent as entertainers, acquire some degree of unpopularity. While Threes set out to enjoy themselves and give enjoyment to others by their natural friendliness, Twenty-Twos assume less conspicuous roles as spectators, helpers and organisers. While the 3 vibration produces solo players, the 2 and 4, either individually or in a combined form, produce group performers. The average Twenty-Two will be found as an essential part of a group. However, a Twenty-Two motivating near the power of the master vibration is capable of assuming any leading role in social or public life. More often than not Threes create a set of vibrations within a group and a Twenty-Two partner may be content to tune into this set of vibrations. The distinctive atmosphere created by the good humour, hospitality, friendliness, and imagination of the Three combine splendidly with the calm demeanour, helpfulness and practicality of the Twenty-Two to produce a socially successful couple. One could generalise and say that the Three, not only in social life but also in other areas as well, is an individual of activity, while the Twenty-Two is always one of action. Twenty-Twos do not act merely for the sake of action or for the exhilaration or the plaudits such action may bring, but instead also act for social ends that are usually beyond self-interest.

The Three’s powerful imagination finds effortless release through an extraordinary gift of speech and a rich spoken and singing voice. They are able to vocalise their thoughts and enunciate their words with fluency and self-confidence. This is another aid to their social popularity. They are leading conversationalists showing a perennial sense of good humour. Twenty-Twos, on the other hand, reflect the manner of practical people. Although by no means tongue-tied, they confine their speech to practical issues. They are good listeners who complement well with their loquacious Three partners. There is an intuitive wisdom in most Twenty-Twos by which things are known to them without any need for analysis, discussion or explanation. Threes may not have the same subtleties of feeling and their sharp sense of humour may not always be appreciated. They should be careful how they tease a Twenty-Two partner as the sensitivity of the Twenty-Two could make them react unfavourably to the most light-hearted remark.

Time does not hang heavy with these personality types. Not only do they keep themselves busy in public life, but they also use their leisure time in a variety of activities. Their days are seldom long enough. They are not dependent on action as a twosome as they possess the mental and emotional balance to give themselves a proportionate amount of togetherness and separatism. However there should be no need for their interests to diverge to any considerable extent as this could be to their disadvantage. Although each partner is capable of striking out alone, the combination of the Three’s imagination and the Twenty-Two’s practicality will open out a wider array of responses to their environment and create a stronger combination of talent. The fine sensibility of both partners – the Three being of a mental nature and the Twenty-Two of an emotional nature – will find rewarding outlets in music, literature, painting, sculpture, decoration and in any other artistic form.

While acting on the positive side of their numbers these partners show no attachment to money or material goods for their own sake. Gainful interaction with people is a much higher priority than the accumulation of material wealth. Both have generous and free spending habits. Threes spend more on themselves and less on others, while self-sacrificing habits are usual with the more impersonal Twenty-Twos. Threes maintain a high profile in private and public life and to do so successfully, personal expenses are always high. The Twenty-Two has the combined influence of the thrifty 4 vibration and also of the generous and impressionable 2. More often than not, the influence of the 2 is stronger than that of the 4. This is especially so when the Twenty-Two leans towards the influence of the master vibration. The spiritual element that is introduced creates an impersonal outlook on life. Personal needs are subordinated by their sympathy for needy humanity. Much of their money and time may be spent on one or more charitable or relief organisation. Selfishness takes over when Threes and Twenty-Twos motivate on the negative side of their vibrations. Self-indulgence by the Threes will be greatly increased and the energies of the Twenty-Twos will be applied to the acquisition of personal wealth and power. The humanitarian touch will be lost.

Vanity is a sensitive point in the character of the Three personality of which the Twenty-Two will soon take notice. A wise Twenty-Two (most of them possess the rare quality of wisdom) will be careful not to injure the Three’s vanity by neglect, ridicule, criticism or by any other means. On the contrary, most Twenty-Twos will realise that the easiest way to remain close to their Three partners is to nourish their egos in various subtle ways. They are more perceptive of the needs of others and are prepared to offer service and comfort. Also, their levels of tolerance are higher than most other personality types. All Twenty-Twos, having sensitive temperaments, possess psychic and intuitive qualities which they use both consciously and unconsciously. However, this sensitivity has negative aspects too. It adds stresses to the life of the Twenty-Two which others, especially Three partners, do not feel. It also contributes to false interpretations of the behaviour and motives of others, which consequently makes them inaccurately critical in judgment.

The element of romance is built into the character of both parties. This will enrich their intimate lives. Unless introduced by environmental causes, neither partner should possess any form of inhibition in sexual activity. In fact, the active vibrations of the Three and the receptive vibrations of the Twenty-Two should ensure real compatibility in their physical relations.

An ideal partnership will be formed when both partners are positive personalities. Not only will these partners become friends as well as lovers, but also the partnership itself will be extremely productive. Help in the domestic scene will be needed so that both may give of their best to the world at large. In the event of one partner only being of a positive nature the partnership could be as successful, as this positive partner will take over the role of leader and decision maker. If both partners are negatively inclined the partnership will lack direction.

3RD AND 23RD BIRTHDAYS

The 3rd day of the month produces a personality with concentrated or indivisible characteristics of the 3 vibration. Depending on the vibrations contained in the rest of the birth date and the name, the personality structure may be formed by positive or negative aspects of this vibration, or by a mixture of the two. Also, other facets to the integral personality may be acquired from these areas. However, primary 3 characteristics will always remain the principal force, and whatever the integral composition may be, the Three personality can easily be identified by prominent 3 characteristics such as sociability, extroversion, imagination, versatility, generosity, optimism and fluency of speech. Subjects of the 23rd birthday are influenced by three vibrations and therefore fall into a category of complex personalities. They are not as easily identified as personalities with single digit birthdays such as the Three. The integral Twenty-Three is the result of interaction between the 2, 3 and 5 vibrations. Although Twenty-Threes are basically Five personalities they do not act as clear Fives. The 2 and 3 vibrations play a significant formative part in their development. To their considerable advantage, the three vibrations have more complementary and reciprocal features than those that may be incompatible. Their sympathetic interaction does not give rise to any conflicting desires and characteristics within the personality. They intermingle in a manner that produces a personality of tremendous vitality, curiosity, versatility, adaptability, alertness, extroversion and imagination. At the same time, there are no built-in safeguards against excess of some familiar traits such as changeability, restlessness and talkativeness. The Twenty-Three also depends on other numbers of the birth date and name for positive or negative expression of their personality features. The presence of the 1 vibration in other areas of influence plays a significant role in determining the degree of self-confidence, self-esteem, clear direction and the ability to make their own decisions.

The Three personality has many features in common with the Twenty-Three. This is so, not only because the Twenty-Three contains the 3 vibration, but also because the 2 and 5 vibrations have several characteristics similar to those of the 3, such as sociability and extroversion. Threes and Twenty-Three personalities may look at life from generally similar points of view but their levels of energy and capacity to extend themselves into a wider variety of activity vary considerably. Enriched by the combination of three complementary vibrations the Twenty-Three can contain or match the Three in all things, but the Three will not be able to contain the Twenty-Three. In other words, whatever the Three can do, the Twenty-Three can also do, and much else besides. The Twenty-Three is able to see a broader picture of life as their attention, unlike the Three, who is not entirely anchored on themselves. They are less egocentric in their thought processes. However, as the Three’s horizons are more bounded and held more or less within a set range of vibratory frequencies, they are subject to fewer distractions. Despite a restless mind, Threes find it easier to concentrate and maintain a steady course of action. Predisposition for variety and change natural to both partners is much stronger in the Twenty-Three. If the restless nature of this personality is not controlled it will act to the disadvantage of aspects of life which call for security, stability and permanence. They could be all aglow with enthusiasm and start things well but quite frequently fail to finish them. Their Three partners, who will be engaged in their own affairs, cannot be expected or depended upon to complete these undertakings. A partnership between a Three and Twenty-Three will hardly be an even match. The attraction of opposite, or active/receptive magnetism, which so often brings people together is not likely to take place as both personalities are governed by active vibrations. (The receptive 2 in the Twenty-Three is not strong enough to overcome the combined force of the 3 and 5) They are also hardly likely to be attracted to each other on the basis of similarities. While they do possess similar tastes for social activity and artistic outlets they do not share other features such as domesticity, self-sacrifice, cooperation and practicality, which are needed to cement a permanent relationship. Individual self-expression is a more urgent need than self-sacrifice and cooperative living. In the unlikely event of these individuals forming a relationship many adjustments to their socially oriented lifestyle will be essential for it to succeed.

For spontaneous demonstration of their emotions the Three will need outlets provided by other areas in the birth date and name. Whether these outlets are available or not, the emotional expression of Threes will not be equal to that of the Twenty-Three who already possesses two strong outlets for such expression. While the Three is confined within the range of the mentally oriented 3 vibration, the greater part of the Twenty-Three is controlled by the emotional 2 and 5 vibrations. Twenty-Threes are also liable to have their emotions intensified and turned into negative forms of expression if the birth month also contains emotional numbers. All Twenty-Threes will be more emotionally accessible and emotionally animated than their Three partners. They have a greater awareness of how others feel and what they really need. Threes may be intellectually aware of the Twenty-Three’s emotional needs but this type of awareness may not be sufficient to prompt them into sympathetic and sentimental action towards their partners. The Twenty-Three, on the other hand, has the capacity to actually feel the needs of the Three, or that of anyone else. Their sensitivity enhances extrasensory perception so that very little passes their observation. Due to their keener subtleties of feeling they are more affected than the Three by the vibrations of those around them. These qualities make most Twenty-Threes natural actors and actresses.

Although the leadership qualities of their vibrations are enjoyed by both, neither partner will show any great desire to enter into a fierce contest for the role of leader in domestic matters. Personal freedom and individual self-expression are more important than the self-sacrifice and responsibilities associated with the domestic role. One will expect the other to undertake the practical and day-to-day tasks. As these duties cannot be avoided, opinions and decisions will be put forward by both partners and not always followed by action. They will resent having to abide by routine and timetables. Frequent arguments may give rise to disharmony and disorganisation. Regularity and efficiency will seldom be found in their domestic affairs. They will usually find themselves in a position where progress in their personal relations is slowed down by domestic strife. Theirs will be a busy home with an excess of movement, speed, outside activity and precious little time for togetherness.

These are essentially career oriented individuals who could have more than one interest going at any given time. A Three or Twenty-Three who remains in one job or pursues a single career during a working life will be a rare exception. They are not always successful in the business of buying and selling unless they are supported by partners who are trained in money management, quantity surveying and general business principles. They are better equipped for business in the entertainment world. Here again, support of a good accountant and office manager will be essential. All forms of entertainment and amusement are areas in which these partners can profitably combine their talents, their spirit of enterprise and their personal popularity. The Twenty-Three, in particular, will display good organising ability, but essential routine tasks should be taken over by assistants.

The social life of both Threes and Twenty-Threes will take priority over other activities. In their endless search for distraction and the social limelight the domestic scene and their personal relations will be given little attention. Their business life may not suffer the same neglect as the chances are that most of their social activities will involve business associates and business interests.

A flair for showmanship natural to both will bring them into competition with each other at social gatherings. They may find each other’s company somewhat restrictive. Both will seek the centre of attention in any scene as they cannot be relegated to the background. A little loneliness, isolation or occasional inactivity will be too much for either to bear for long; also neither will be able to put up with dull or boring people or unchanging conditions. Clarity of speech is a quality with which both are gifted. Threes express themselves through mental flexibility and power with words. Twenty-Threes communicate, not only with these qualities, but also with meaningful gestures, including the medium of touch. Their body language makes them appealing and convincing speakers. Both partners are splendid conversationalists. They can be full of opinions, and in their efforts to steal attention from each other they may frequently cut into each other’s speech. They have a sharp sense of humour and know how to laugh and how to create laughter in others. Above all, when they stop competing with each other, they are able to laugh together and at each other. They are free and open personalities who are able to express what they feel, and consequently do not hold grudges against each other or anyone else. They are able to quarrel without holding bitterness afterwards. To look forward to new experiences is far more attractive to them than living in or contemplating past experiences, whether pleasurable or distasteful.

As these are not personalities who are dependent on one another’s company, they could unwittingly spend their leisure time in separate activities. However, this is another scene in which there will be no need for them to go separate ways in order to give each other room. Their tastes and talents are so similar that they could combine in many supportive and productive ways.

With minds and bodies that are free, energetic and uncommitted, both partners will be attracted to sport especially open-air activities, and the social life associated with them. Several other hobbies will hold their mutual interest and these will be found in the world of music, drama, literature and all the fine arts. Success in any one or more of these areas could be turned into income earning ventures.

As both partners rate freedom, experience and self-expression higher than security, the financial side of their life together may fluctuate between wealth and penury. Both have the capacity to contribute generously to the finances of the partnership. However, their expenses will always be high and money will go out as fast as it comes in. Neither partner will be really concerned with building up and maintaining a permanent savings account. Any money put away will be for a specific purpose such as a holiday or the purchase of a luxury item. They are not types that will shop around for bargains or insist on getting full value for their money. They will seldom question a price tag as their desire to possess the article itself is stronger than their attachment to the money they give out. Money is regarded as only a means by which they can satisfy their many wants. Financial difficulties could contribute considerably to discord and argument in this partnership.

Both Threes and Twenty-Threes are enthusiastic about life and seek to get the best they can out of it. Free from feelings of guilt for any form of self-indulgences they take experiences as they come without pondering over them. They are free personalities who, without complaint, should be able to accept each other’s individuality and desire for freedom of expression. However, an anomaly may appear in their role expectations. On the one hand they instinctively reject dependent and clinging partners, especially those who resort to jealous and suspicious behaviour. On the other hand, their egos are dependent on and are strengthened by the attention and compliments paid to them by their partners. Three personalities are more affected than all other vibrations by this anomaly as their greater degree of ego-centredness will expect more of the Twenty-Three than they themselves are prepared to give. Their exacting nature is based on purely emotional needs and is not to be confused with the desire for material goods. They are quite generous and not attached to material goods. As the Twenty-Three is attuned to the frequencies of sensitive vibrations of the emotional plane a need to demand emotional attention does not really arise. They possess a sensuous nature and personal warmth which naturally attracts the attention of others. Both partners are romantically inclined and are not averse to flirtatious behaviour. Neither will be inclined to lay down strict rules of conduct they know will not be kept.

The best that can be expected with these personality types is a partnership with loose ties. The relationship will be maintained on an equal footing if both partners have the 1 vibration in the birth month as both will then act on the positive side of their numbers. The 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months provide this vibration. If this vibration is found in the birth year only it may not be strong enough to ensure positive attitudes at all times. In the event of one partner being a positive personality and the other a generally negative one, the partnership will head for trouble from the outset as the positive partner will not be willing to carry the insecurities and inconsistency displayed by the dependent negative partner.

3RD AND 24TH BIRTHDAYS

Interaction of active and receptive vibrations creates the most significant factor in this birthday combination. Not only will the natural attraction of opposites take place between subjects of these birthdays, but other qualities peculiar to the vibrations that control them will be activated to strengthen their initial attraction. For instance, the 3 represents the principal of vibrant youth, and each of the three vibrations forming the 24th day is strong in the qualities of nurturing, guardianship and service. The Three personality, who expects to be taken care of in a variety of ways, will be irresistibly drawn to the fatherly/motherly image projected by the Twenty-Four. In addition, the generally unflappable Twenty-Four will be uplifted and stimulated by the effervescent and vibrant qualities of the Three. Both personalities will, in the long term, benefit from an exchange of opposite characteristics.

Once their honeymoon days have been taken over by the realities of living they have every chance of settling down to a loving and interlocking relationship. The attraction of opposites usually results in couples finding themselves with partners who look at the world from different observation points. This difference will be conspicuous in a Three/Twenty-Four relationship. Recognition of these differences will be the first step towards the adjustments they will need to make to achieve success. Despite the influence of other areas of power in the birth date and name, the personality structure of those born the 3rd day possesses all the essential qualities of the Three vibration. Other areas may add secondary aspects to the integral personality and also determine the degree in which these qualities are used in positive or negative ways. Threes are free and open personalities. They are extroverted, well mannered, dynamic, sociable, optimistic and free from inhibiting qualities such as jealousy, despondency, selfishness and vindictiveness. They set out to experience life in all its phases with a fresh outlook of youthfulness and egocentricity.

Despite the psychological dependence on others they are proud and protective of their freedom and individuality. In whatever circumstances they find themselves they make every effort, both consciously and unconsciously, to gain the centre of attention. When opportunities to occupy centre stage are denied them, they will unhesitatingly set out to create situations that draw the attention of others in their direction. Subtle methods are used by positive Threes and exhibitionist methods by negatives Threes whose reaction, when things go wrong, is to blame others rather than examine the possibility of error on their part. The Twenty-Four personality has none of these self-promoting, self-centred and ostentatious characteristics. They have emerged from egocentricity into community consciousness and become aware of their role as an integral part of society. As a consequence of these different outlooks these partners do not fall into competition with each other. The Twenty-Four will be happy to stand aside and witness the grandstanding of the Three, and even give them some encouragement. They are more likely to assume responsibility for failure than point their finger at others.

Though Twenty-Fours are basically Six personalities (2 + 4 = 6), their characters are formed by the sympathetic blending of the 2, 4, and 6 vibrations. This is a complimentary integration of the emotional 2, the physical 4 and the mental 6. The integral Twenty-Four is thus able to motivate freely between three planes of expression. A better balanced combination of receptive vibrations can hardly be expected as there is no contradiction or opposition in the characteristics of these vibrations. All the Twenty-Four needs is the 1 vibration in the birth month in order to emerge as an exceptionally resourceful individual. The 1 vibration will provide the vitality, self-confidence, and controlled aggressiveness needed for maximum use of the qualities spread over the three planes of expression. If this is not found in the birth month other areas of influence may provide it in adequate strength.

While a positive Three has all the qualities required for decisive leadership a negative Three personality will lack direction and self-confidence. Often these weaknesses will be covered up either by an egotistic and self-promoting façade or by escapist tendencies. They can suffer constant anxiety over a compelling need for popularity and acclaim. This has a direct influence on their decisions relating to the partnership which is bound to interfere with the down-to-earth ways of the pragmatic Twenty-Four. None of the vibrations forming the Twenty-Four is related to instant decision making or to direct leadership. They form personalities who are slow and deliberate thinkers who prefer to live within a preset system of rules and timetables. The 4 and 6 especially keep them in touch with reality so that they are able to see things realistically instead of using highly imaginative or emotionally charged conceptions. As they resent being rushed or influenced by illogical, irresponsible or impractical ideas they perform at their best only under the influence of a stable environment and rational leadership. Caution, common sense and good sense of values govern their thoughts and actions. While not conceiving the image of a leadership role they will instinctively take over most of the practical responsibilities within the partnership and willingly grant their Three partners an outward show of leadership. With a positive Three this will be a comfortable and advantageous arrangement. The Twenty-Four will profit by the Three’s quick decisions, and the Three by the Twenty-Four’s ability to execute their plans. In a partnership with a negative Three the whole process of their lives will be slowed down as the Twenty-Four will be faced with a high degree of inconsistency in the Three’s general conduct. The practical Twenty-Four will be forced to reject many of the Three’s ideas and make decisions of their own. While the restless mind of the Three will find it hard to accommodate to a life tied to domestic responsibilities the quiet mentality and strong hands of the Twenty-Four will adapt to this lifestyle with consummate ease. A stronger combination of domestic vibrations cannot be found in any other personality type. A Three/Twenty-Four combination will be very fortunate if the Three is the principal income earner and the Twenty-Four is the homemaker. In the reverse situation the Twenty-Four will be forced into the dual role of working at a job as well as working at home as the Three partner will not be capable of running a home to the satisfaction of the thorough Twenty-Four. Threes cannot be called upon to adhere to routine, timetables and to essential manual tasks associated with running an efficient home. The natural outlet for a Three personality is a career in which their need for company, and their ambition and imaginative and creative minds can be given full rein. The drive of ambition is not as strong in the Twenty-Four. They are more inclined to take what comes rather than go after opportunity.

Both partners are extroverted personalities, but their type of extroversion differs in both in form and intensity. All Threes are dependent upon social interaction for their happiness. Aloneness or solitude is a state of being they cannot conceive of and loneliness is a condition they cannot put up with. An active social life is expected with a Three partner. While Twenty-Fours enjoy social life they are not dependent on it for their happiness. They find this in other directions, especially in work and community service. At the same time they will gladly partner a Three in moderate social activity. They will act as a good foil for any excess of sociability on the part of the Three. While Threes gain their pleasure as activators and entertainers, Twenty-Fours, by preference, are observers, and true to their realistic nature, find themselves involved in the more practical manner in the lives of other people. While the Three lifts the atmosphere of a party with bright conversation and good humour, the Twenty-Four, with a natural flair for keeping themselves busy, will take charge of essentials such as accommodation, food and beverage. The Three/Twenty-Four partnership can be turned into a splendid host/hostess combination.

One source of trouble in the relationship which should be taken in hand is the careless use by the Three of a wealth and fluency with words. Living as they do in the sphere of imagination Threes could use this gift to excess by talking too much, and often confusing and irritating their less articulate and practical Twenty-Four partners. The Twenty-Four lives, by and large, in the sphere of reality and therefore confines their conversation to practical matters. They are not without the power of speech but instead prefer to dispense with ‘flowery’ speech and prefer to verbalise their thoughts in plain language. Their customary even-tempered and helpful ways can be changed into obstinacy or an aggrieved silence when pushed too far by an excessively vocal Three. They can also become quite argumentative when they choose to confront a Three, but will be no match against the Three’s flexible and cutting use of words. Threes could get carried away and say things unwittingly that will deeply hurt the Twenty-Four. As a means of self-defence, the Twenty-Fours could also resort to moodiness and milder forms of aggression. However, matters need not be allowed to reach a state of hostility as both partners have the ability to communicate without resorting to confrontation or other defensive strategies. Threes can exercise self-control in oral expression and draw upon their innate sense of friendliness and courtesy, and the Twenty-Four can use their cooperative spirit and open themselves to new ideas introduced by the Three. Threes, who are notoriously bad listeners, should also learn to set their egos aside and listen to what is being said by their practical Twenty-Four partners.

The Twenty-Four’s hobbies will usually be centred on the home. Some may potter around fixing things here and there and generally use their time in relaxation and bodily comforts and ease. Others may be more energetic and use natural skills with their hands in mechanics, woodwork, pottery, sculpture, or any other deft-fingered functions such as dress making, knitting and embroidery. All Twenty-Fours will enjoy cooking, collecting recipes and the preparing nutritious diets. It is most unlikely that the Tree partner will associate with The Twenty-Four in the practical aspects of these interests except to contribute opinions from an artistic point of view. They have no desire to spend too much time at home. They need outside interests to keep themselves happy. The Twenty-Four, who does not demand personal freedom, should recognise that the Three needs room for movement. The Three, in return, must appreciate that the Twenty-Four’s natural tendencies resent too far a departure from familiar scenes. They can still maintain a proportionate amount of togetherness and separateness by taking a mutual interest in sport, music, home entertainment and open-air activities. With a little understanding they can counter-check each other and prevent any extremes of behaviour. A balance can be achieved between the Twenty-Four’s attachment to domestic affairs and set habits, and the Three’s attraction to the glitter of social life.

Their attitudes to and methods of handling money will soon reveal that these personalities are direct opposites in this regard. Threes have expensive tastes and are habitually free spenders. They are not attached to money for its own sake as their optimistic views on life do not give rise to fears for their future financial security; nor are they the possessive types who cling on to their possessions. Money does not remain long in their hands and the need for saving, except for very specific purposes, is rarely considered. Twenty-Fours, on the other hand, have economical tastes, and hold a tight rein over expenses. While Threes may fall into debt without undue fear, the Twenty-Four has a horror of heavy or prolonged indebtedness. They are attached to money for the security it ensures, and security in every form is the most essential feature that contributes to their wellbeing. The nature of the collector is introduced into the Twenty-Four by the 2 vibration. A nest egg will be the Twenty-Four’s guarded possession. The Three should be restricted from direct access to the family finances as this partnership will be maintained on a solid financial foundation only when the Twenty-Four takes control of expenditure and saving.

Threes are highly imaginative, experimental and romantic lovers. Their sexuality is directly aroused by their active minds, and their responses to their partner’s needs and demands depend on their mental states. As the Twenty-Four is a combination of physical, emotional and mental elements, their needs and responses are evenly paced, thus obviating the risk of a partner’s advances being rejected if they are not in the mood. They are, however, likely to cling to regular methods of lovemaking in contrast to the imaginative and adventurous Three. The Three usually enjoys the thrill of the chase and therefore should not be pursued. There is little danger of this happening as it is not in the nature of the receptive Twenty-Four to do the pursuing. They will always be more accommodating in their intimate lives and avoid situations that will create emotional stress. Unlike the impatient Three they are able to delay action when emotionally disturbed. These partners can be quite compatible in their intimate lives on account of the natural interaction of active and receptive energies.

In the event of both partners being strong positive personalities an amicable division of responsibilities can be made, which will ensure real success in their relationship. As mentioned earlier, an ideal situation will see the Twenty-Four as the homemaker or part-time income earner and the Three as the full-time provider. In the reverse situation, the Twenty-Four will find fulfilment in a full-time occupation as well as in a large share of domestic duties. The Three will not be happy or competent in a full-time domestic role. These partners will be positive personalities if they are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th or 12th months. If only one of these partners is born in any one of these months, the decision making and leadership role will be taken over by this partner. The partnership will still contain the potential for real success provided the Three is relieved of too much domestic duty. If both partners are negatively inclined the partnership will lack direction. Both partners will have difficulty making decisions.

3RD AND 25TH BIRTHDAYS

People with single digit birthdays are identified by the general characteristics of one set of vibrations relative to the particular day, and by the plane of expression to which this number belongs. The nature of their relationship with another on a personal basis or with others in general terms can be anticipated with much less difficulty than with someone with a multiple-digit birthday. Some multiple-digit birthdays are formed by vibrations with related characteristics which integrate harmoniously and which produce an uncomplicated personality. Others may contain unrelated energies which do not complement each other but instead for the most part, act independently of each other, thus producing a loosely knit personality that cannot be stereotyped. The 24th day is a good example of the former, and the 25th is an accurate example of the latter.

A partnership between a Three and a Twenty-Five will always be turbulent and volatile as neither party is likely to seriously undertake the difficult, though necessary task of understanding and reaching out to one another. Three personalities, controlled by the youthful 3 vibration representing the first flush of life, egocentrically set out to express themselves through a variety of outlets. No time is left for consideration of anything outside their own affairs. They take to the mainstream of life as leaders, activists, entertainers and performers. It is not in their nature to detach themselves from the exhilaration of self-expression and they turn into students and observers pondering over the philosophies of life. Rather than extend themselves to understanding the personality of a partner they will expect their partners to understand them and cater to their likes and dislikes. This is more a form of blindness than a form of selfishness in the general sense as Threes are loving, friendly and generous people. They are, however, so wrapped up in themselves that they seldom bother to see things from the point of view of others unless or until they are given a sharp reminder.

Twenty-Fives are rather complex personalities who are often unconsciously sorting out and understanding their own complicated personality structures and who have little time and inclination for sympathetic attention of a partner’s problems – real or imagined. Twenty-Fives are basically Seven personalities (2 + 5 = 7), and all Sevens are basically self-sufficient people who expect and respect the same quality in others. Though influenced by the 2 and 5 vibrations, 7 qualities of introspection and self-examination are always at work. They need to spend much time developing self-appreciation and getting to know themselves. Mature Twenty-Fives frequently emerge as knowledgeable and understanding people for the reason that they have firstly taken up the study of their own personality before attempting to understand others. Early ambition for power and worldly possessions could evolve into aspirations for the finer things of life.

Threes, being emotionally dependent, will expect a great deal of love and adulation shown to them They are not likely to receive this devotion form Twenty-Five partners, whose composition, though emotionally strong, tends towards independence and freedom from attachment. This could be the source of many problems with a Three partner. The Twenty-Five is formed by the receptive 2 vibration and the active 5 and 7 vibrations. The 2 and 5 belong to the emotional plane, and the 7 to the physical plane. Although the 7 is a physical vibration, it also has strong spiritual elements that contribute a quality of mystery and detachment to the personality. Though emotionalism will be a strong motivating force in the Twenty-Five, (and their first reactions will usually be emotional), excessive demonstration of emotion will be held in check by the 7 vibration. Their physical appearance offers a curious mixture of poise, sensuality and charismatic attraction.

At certain times, the Twenty-Five will display the receptive nature of the 2 vibration showing personal warmth, gentleness, patience, companionship, service and cooperation. These qualities will hold a magnetic attraction to the Three partner. At the same time disillusionment is likely to set in when the stronger individualistic and freedom-loving traits of the 5 vibration come to the fore. This 5 aspect of the Twenty-Five will refuse to carry the Three partner in any way, but will, on the contrary, attempt to change and reorganise many aspects of the Three’s lifestyle. This will be resisted by a positive Three but may succeed with a negative Three. The 7 vibration at fundamental levels of the personality will also cause problems. The extroverted Three will not understand the aloof and contemplative aspects of this vibration. Extroverted behaviour prompted by the 2 and 5 vibrations can suddenly be changed to aloof and introverted attitudes during which the Twenty-Five will seek periods of privacy and seclusion. Understanding the moderate interaction and more often than not, the independent action of three forces within the Twenty-Five, is a task that is not in the nature of a Three personality to undertake.

Although the role of a leader will be attractive to both parties, neither one will make a determined bid to assume all the responsibilities associated with leadership. Their love of personal freedom and indifference to domestic affairs will keep them away from any attempts to take charge of the running of the home. At the same time neither partner will submit to the authority of the other or surrender their right to have a say in all their affairs. They will invariably find themselves at loggerheads when decisions have to be made. Argument, noncooperation and competition for the final say will become the order of the day. Their arguments will be strengthened and prolonged by the vocal capacity of both partners. While the Three’s speech will be augmented by critical, satirical and cutting words the Twenty-Five’s delivery will be supported by forceful emotional demonstration.

Domestic affairs are likely to be neglected by both in favour of careers. The Three will look for conditions that offer scope for self-expression and the enjoyment of the society of others. The Twenty-Five will look for movement and a variety of activities, and even enjoy an element of risk or danger in their occupation. The company of others is not an essential factor as the Twenty-Five’s form of extroversion tends more towards motion, action, organisation and even manipulation of conditions and people, than towards open-minded social interaction. Both parties are certain to change their jobs more than once and involve themselves in more than one occupation at a time. Temptation to experience a variety of occupations, prompted by their natural versatility, will be too strong to overcome. This mode of life will take up so much of their time and energy that little will be left for proper domestic care and togetherness in the home. If circumstances cast these personalities into a domestic situation their versatility is such that they will adapt to their role as homemakers but their hearts will not be in their duties. The Twenty-Five will do a better job than the Three as this personality can get down to physical tasks when called upon to do so. Such tasks will usually be neglected by the Three.

There is a marked difference in the social needs of these personalities which is clearly revealed by their conduct in company. Threes perform at their best where the spotlight falls in the centre of social activity. This causes a degree of vulnerability in the Three personality insofar as these people become dependent on the society of others for their wellbeing. As natural entertainers they give out a good deal of pleasure to the company they keep and, in turn, enhance their self-image from the attention they receive. Twenty-Fives, on the other hand are not dependent on the attention and admiration of an audience. Self-expression, which motivates the Three, is not as important to them because their strong sense of curiosity which lures them into a variety of activity and diverse experiences. Their curiosity extends into worldly affairs as well as non-worldly knowledge and experiences. They are self-teachers with a keen sense of observation. While Threes receive their strength and self-assurance from outside and often invent strategies for receiving, the Twenty-Five draws upon inner resources and uses strategies to get their way. While Threes are generally stationed on the mental plane, Twenty-Fives are receptive to earthly as well as subtle forces from the physical, emotional and spiritual planes. They benefit from an intuitive wisdom by which things become known to them without resort to analysis or explanation. An excess of social life favoured by a Three partner will interfere with a Twenty-Five’s search for knowledge and experience in areas that will not hold any interest to a Three personality. The Three partner, endowed with several artistic talents may be the more popular member in their social circle but, the Twenty-Five, who is less self-centred with a keener perception of the needs of others, can be depended upon for practical help in all emergencies. Though Threes are better mixers, Twenty-Fives are sharp observers with instant reflexes which enable them to handle almost all situations, social or otherwise. They are selective of the company they keep and do not recognise superiors unless they have earned their respect. They may project an image of sociability that will disappoint people who have taken this sociability as a permanent feature of their personality. There is a need for privacy in all Twenty-Fives which may not be realised by others upon early acquaintance. They are not easy to get to know and when one does get to know them the Twenty-Five needs watchful handling as their nature is one of those opposing tendencies of introversion and extroversion which coexist in almost equal strength.

Oral frustration, a common problem with many people, is unknown to both partners. Many verbal duels, friendly or otherwise, can therefore be expected. Unless aided by emotional vibrations elsewhere, Threes depend on the medium of speech to express their thoughts and emotions. Twenty-Fives have the advantage of forceful and persuasive body-language in addition to fluency of speech. They have also a built-in safeguard (from the 7 vibration) which tells them when to stop talking and start listening. Threes are likely to overdo their overly one-sided communicative habits. While Twenty-Fives will show a genuine interest in topics introduced by others, Threes will not pay serious attention to a subject that does not interest them. When not directly employed in some form of artistic expression Threes cannot resist the urge to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Their imaginative faculty is unrestrained as their minds are uncommitted and free from traditional prejudices, dogmas and conventional values. In this respect the open-minded Twenty-Five is not different, and despite the ego-centred nature of the Three, many lively discussions on impersonal and abstract subjects can take place through the influence of the Twenty-Five.

The search for novelty will take up much of their spare time. As both feel the need for some personal freedom they are likely to go their own ways and choose their own hobbies. A Three’s time may be spent in social activities, sport, music and artistic outlets. The Twenty-Five will not be disinterested in these pastimes but their love of open spaces and the unusual, will take than further afield into diverse hobbies such as gardening, environmental care, collecting antiquarian objects, educational travel and the study of the occult sciences. Despite the need of these partners for their own time in their chosen pastimes, both can benefit considerably if they get together and function as a team. Their active and alert minds and enterprising personalities can be put to tremendous mutual advantage.

Their financial position could easily become the source of dissention and insecurity unless an earnest effort is made by both partners to control their hasty spending habits. Their impulsive, restless, optimistic and changeable ways are reflected in the manner in which they purchase things. They enter the most convenient, if not the best stores available, and make their purchases, rather than spend time following advertisements, window shopping and bargain hunting. For some measure of control to be brought into their expenditure, the Twenty-Five will have to take the initiative as this partner has the built-in safeguard of the money-wise 7 vibration. With this vibration operating in the background of the personality the Twenty-Five will be deterred from any real irresponsibility in the handling of their finances.

Although their moods may not always coincide, these partners will introduce vitality, romance, variety and experimentation into their sex lives. Threes can almost instantly feel in the mood for lovemaking. But Twenty-Fives are subject to much more variation in mood. The intricate and diverse forces operating within this personality pull them in different directions so that they need a little time before they can be put in the mood for intimacy. With a few concessions on both sides these partners can enjoy an exceptionally compatible sex life. Threes need to be reassured from time to time of their worth and importance, while too many sudden demands should not be made on the Twenty-Five. Both parties enjoy moving freely with members of the opposite sex without arousing feelings of jealousy, anger or envy in each other. The nature of their lifestyle will be such that they will have the opportunity to mix with the opposite sex and encounter temptations associated with such interaction. The Three has a flirtatious nature but will always remain loyal to the right partner. The right partner for a Three is one who will always keep them intrigued, and the enigmatic Twenty-Five is almost certain to do so. Twenty-Fives could evoke flirtatious behaviour in others and respond to a degree but will finally choose to be faithful to their partners.

Positive Threes and positive Twenty-Fives are those born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. A partnership between these personalities will be tempestuous and volatile and neither will subject to the decisions of the other. The chances of a compatible relationship are much better when only one partner is born in one of these months. In this event the other will be more inclined to submit to the will of the positive partner. In the absence of a strong 1 vibration the Three personality is more open to more negative qualities such as the lack of proper direction and the absence of self-confidence. The Twenty-Five is in a better position as the 7 vibration usually takes the place of the 1 to provide a good sense of direction and money management, although the self-confidence provided by the 1 vibration will still be wanting.

3RD AND 26TH BIRTHDAYS

The opposite polarities of this combination are its most obvious features. The active nature of one and receptive qualities of the other will have the most significant impact on a relationship between subjects of these birthdays. The 3rd day of the month holds the concentrated power of the active 3 vibration operating on the mental plane of expression. Secondary influences may be contributed towards the structure of the integral Three personality by other points of influence in the birth date and name, but this individual will function and be identified by the general qualities of the 3 vibration. As in the case of all others whose birthdays do not contain the driving force of the 1 vibration, those of the 3rd depend on its presence in other areas of influence in order to, for the most part, live up to positive aspects of the 3 vibration. Many splendid characteristics of this vibration will be inhibited by a lack of self-confidence which is the usual consequence of the absence of the 1 vibration. In addition, tendencies to accentuate the negative qualities of the 3 will take hold of the personality. High intelligence, a clear imagination, sociability, a capacity to absorb new knowledge quickly and other characteristics akin to an essentially youthful and outgoing temperament are typical positive qualities of the average Three personality. They are also acutely conscious of themselves as individuals and constantly seek to express their individuality in a variety of ways. Positive Threes are optimistic, ambitious and authoritative. Sooner or later they rise above all subordinate and restrictive positions, and establish themselves as trend-setters and leaders in public life and social life. Negative Threes, especially those with a repetition of the 3 vibration from the birth month, could be vain, boastful, critical, and extremely fussy about personal needs, emotionally unstable, lost in detail and desperate for attention. Due to low self-esteem they also indulge in self-pity and escapist tendencies.

The receptive 2, 6, and 8 vibrations forming the 26th day interact harmoniously to create an integral Eight personality. The 2 and 6 vibrations expand and strengthen basic Eight characteristics. The Twenty-Six is freed from inner turmoil caused by a loose personality structure of conflicting vibrations. As both the 2 and 8 belong to the emotional plane there could be a perceptible emphasis on emotionalism. However, the mental 6 vibration will always act as a preventative against any excessive display of emotion. Their integral personality structure will include many features which the 2 and 6 vibrations have in common, such as peace, harmony, diplomacy, agreeability, cooperation, domesticity, guardianship, sociability and companionship. These are also strong healing vibrations, and people influenced by them take to some form of physical or mental healing practices. As an emotionally expressive vibration the 2 will provide a special quality of personal warmth, and the 6 will introduce a steady force of logic and mental balance. The combined 2 and 6 characteristics will support fundamental 8 qualities of judgment, deliberation, arbitration, organisation, management, dependability and executive authority. The absence of tension in the general disposition of the Twenty-Six will be a clearly distinguishing feature.

As in the case of the Three personality, the Twenty-Six also depends on the 1 vibration in other strong areas of influence to be certain of positive expression of the multiple aspects of their personality. High ambition and leadership traits characteristic of the 8 vibration will emerge if the personality is supported by the 1 vibration in the birth month, or as the destiny number (e.g.: 26th of March, 1970 will have a destiny number of 1, which is calculated as follows: 2 + 6 + 3 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 0 = 28 = 1). If not, the Twenty-Six will lack self-confidence and self-reliance. The competitive spirit will lie dormant and many opportunities for material progress will be lost. Their kindly and helpful disposition will not be affected, however. The 8 vibration’s drive for power and material possessions will be replaced by ambition for cultural advancement and a comfortable and harmonious lifestyle favoured by the 2 and 6 vibrations.

The magnetic attraction of opposite polarities should operate very closely in this combination. Among other factors, the nurturing qualities of the 2 and 6 combined with the protective strength of the 8 will create an irresistible attraction to the Three personality. This is an individual who, while fiercely guarding individuality, seeks and finds comfort in the emotional and physical care and attention of a partner. The receptive qualities of the Twenty-Six will not only accommodate the needs of the vibrant Three but will also derive much pleasure and personal benefit in doing so. The Three partner’s optimistic approach to life will help reduce some of the anxieties suffered by the Twenty-Six when facing new situations.

The innate tendencies in all Three personalities to assume the role of leader will emerge early in the relationship. The quick decisions of positive Threes will reap many advantages and material benefits. (Negative threes will be uncertain and desultory in their decisions but will still insist on having their say while putting up a façade of leadership). A Twenty-Six will not contest a Three’s aspirations for this role. They are neither outright leaders nor followers. Their expertise lies in planning and organising. They would sooner try to maintain a partnership on a level footing than aspire to an authoritative position, or submit to a subordinate one. In a partnership with a Three, using the combined wisdom of head and heart, they would organise the partnership’s affairs in such a manner that the Three partner plays a formal role as the leading partner while they retain a firm grip on management of financial and other household and family matters. All emotionally turbulent situations will be avoided as domestic felicity will be placed over all other considerations. With high ideals for a harmonious home and family life a fatherly/motherly role is natural to a Twenty-Six. While the Three is almost exclusively a career oriented individual with no domestic attachment, the Twenty-Six will in no circumstances neglect or surrender domestic responsibility in favour of a specialised form of work. Their well organised and well planned lifestyle enables them to assume dual responsibility of home and career, or business interest. They are, in fact, better business people than the straightforward Three personalities and can exercise the option of a career as a professional or a role in commercial activity. If the need arises for one member to drop out of the workforce and take up full-time household duties, needless to say, the Twenty-Six will be the obvious choice – other factors permitting. While Threes see themselves as providers, Twenty-Sixes can see themselves as nurturers as well as providers.

Being extroverted and friendly individuals both partners will be devoted to a good deal of social activity. They will not feel threatened by each other’s social popularity as each takes up a different position in their interaction with people. With their natural sparkle and cheerfulness Threes make friends and admirers by maintaining the high spirits of any company in which they find themselves, while the Twenty-Sixes gain popularity by showing a sympathetic interest in the affairs of their friends and acquaintances, and helping them whenever they can. They possess the capacity to span the generation gap with greater ease than the Three and therefore have a wider scope to impress their personality upon others. A goodwill and trusting approach to people is used by both, and they evoke a similar response from the company they keep. This couple will spontaneously acquire a reputation for entertainment and hospitality. Their home will be known for its warm and convivial atmosphere, especially for the good humour and lively conversation of the Three and the good food spread out by the efforts of the Twenty-Six. Their home can also be one in which their artistic appreciation and talents will be tastefully displayed.

An easy flow of oral communication will help to build a closeness between these partners unlike what often happens in some partnerships that suffer various forms of oral frustration. As in their social attitudes, there are some basic differences between their oral expression. The Three has a copious supply of words, enunciated with speed, accuracy and mental dexterity. Periods of shyness, embarrassed silences, loss of words, lack of conversational material or other inhibiting factors are very rare in the case of a positive Three personality. In most discussions and arguments with a Twenty-Six, the Three partner may gain an initial advantage through the impact of their word power. The Twenty-Six is certainly not as fluent and loquacious, or as insistent on being heard. Their qualities of diplomacy and patience enable them to wait until others have spoken before giving out their views, doing so in unhurried and measured tones. A natural talent for working out compromises often cuts down many impetuous and ill-considered suggestions and ideas put forward by a Three partner. A characteristic of most Threes is their strong desire to hold onto the centre of attention. This usually makes them indifferent listeners and generally one-sided conversationalists. The Twenty-Six, with no desire to monopolise company, prefers to play their part keeping the conversational ball rolling. Threes are noted for their sharp sense of humour and quick repartee and Twenty-Sixes gain a reputation as good mimics and anecdotists. Unlike their Three partners, Twenty-Sixes enjoy periods of silence during which their analytical thought processes are put to work. They are also fond of communicating through the written word, a medium in which the Three seldom finds the time or patience.

The Twenty-Six’s deep regard for the value of shared experiences along with the Three’s natural friendliness will combine so that exclusive time will be set aside for each other during their leisure hours. The youthful nature of all Threes will be reflected in the competitive spirit and all-round skills shown in a variety of outdoor activity. The Twenty-Six partner may not be as totally dedicated to active sport because the competitive spirit in the 8 aspect of their personality is abated considerably by the non-competitive 2 and 6 vibrations. Twenty-Sixes are, however, excellent club persons and are certain to join their Three partners in all social activities associated with sporting clubs or any other type of club.

The creative artist in the Three personality will be drawn out and encouraged by the Twenty-Six’s keen appreciation for all things artistic. The perceptive qualities of this partner do not combat the creative and expressive nature of the Three, but instead, tend to complement and stimulate the Three’s talents. In the dramatic arts (in which these partners can develop a strong mutual interest) the Three will be inclined towards comedy and the Twenty-Six towards romance and tragedy. Special expertise will be shown by the Twenty-Six in the culinary arts. Urged on by the healing and teaching tendencies of the 2 and the 6 vibrations Twenty-Sixes may also extend themselves into community service, charitable causes, counselling and paramedical organisations. All in all, these partners can team together in their leisure time to create a happy and stimulating partnership.

The economic affairs of these partners will be taken over and maintained on a sound footing by the Twenty-Six. While concern for financial security is a feature of the 2 vibration, good planning and responsible spending habits are natural qualities of the 6 and 8 vibrations. The combination of these features along with the saving habits of the 2 vibration contributes towards strengthening the financial acumen of the Twenty-Six. Threes are self-indulgent and free spenders who seldom show concern over money matters. A natural confidence in their ability to attract money saves them from this anxiety. If not held in check by a responsible partner, addictive spending habits are easily formed. As long as a certain amount of money is available for personal use the Three should not object to the transfer of control to the Twenty-Six. They should not take this as an infringement upon their authority, but instead, welcome the release they get from household budgeting – a task which is easily handled by the Twenty-Six. Though responsible and cautious in everything they do, the Twenty-Six has a big heart and a disposition that is free from selfishness, meanness or penny-pinching. As long as they are not rushed into making ill-conceived investments or purchases, they spend generously on family comforts. While the Three is inclined to spend on themselves, the Twenty-Six spends less on themselves and more on the family and household.

The broad compatibility enjoyed by these partners in most aspects of life also enters their intimate relations. Theirs is not a purely physically based union in which they may be faced with the possibility of drifting away after physical attractions have subsided. On the contrary, they are likely to move closer to each other in an emotionally close relationship. A strong sentimental and romantic streak in both partners is a certain preventative against all the magic of their courting days being forgotten or allowed to fade away. The love nature of the Three personality is such that it is enriched and strengthened in the knowledge that their love is reciprocated. Threes love deeply and completely and consequently become grievously hurt when their love is not returned in the same degree. There can be no such risk with a Twenty-Six partner whose love nature is expansive and accommodating. They could, however, become possessive and over-protective of loved ones. Paternal or maternal attitudes wisely used will work well as long as their Three partners are allowed freedom of expression and freedom of movement.

Positive Threes and Twenty-Sixes who are born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will form good equalitarian partnerships that will be productive in every aspect of life. The 1 vibration contributed by these months will provide the incentive required for creative and independent activity. If only the Three partner is born in one of these months the decision making role will be taken over by this partner, but the Twenty-Six will still take over general management of their affairs. If the Twenty-Six partner is the one with the 1 vibration in the birth month this partner will make all the final decisions as well as undertake the running of the household. In either situation this partnership will be compatible and successful. If neither partner has the advantage of the positivity assured by the 1 vibration, the partnership will still be close emotionally but weakened in productivity due to a general lack of drive and self-confidence in both.

3RD AND 27TH BIRTHDAYS

A rather complicated picture is presented by this set of birthdays. An obvious difficulty is the centralised power of the single digit of the 3rd day being matched against the complex forces of the multiple digit birthday of the 27th. However, not all such combinations are faced with complications. In fact, many single/multiple digit birthday combinations are well matched. Due to certain fundamental differences in the nature of the vibrations controlling them, the present set of birthdays truly cannot be seen as complementary or compatible. The principle of opposites may not attract subjects of these birthdays and keep them together on a long term basis, and an attraction on the basis of similarities is also unlikely.

Three personalities are infused by a youthful vitality and optimism, and hold the pursuit of happiness as one of chief objects in life. Their ability to appreciate sound and see colour and beauty in all things enhances their capacity to enjoy life. They are capable of working hard but do so with their minds set on the pleasures they intend indulging in thereafter. They usually seek a form of work which is, in itself, a pleasurable experience. They have alert and restless minds backed up by a fertile and creative imagination. Mental energy, followed by physical activity in several directions can be expected from all Three personalities. The individualistic nature of this personality is such that they do not harmonise themselves with prevailing conditions but set out to create new ground for expression of their energies. With self-expression their predominant urge, they develop a natural capacity to look after themselves and find agreeable work and company by creating openings for self-expression rather than awaiting opportunities to present themselves. They remain proud of their individuality and go through life as self-centred and self-conscious individuals. Being mentally oriented people they live in the realm of mind. They remain young at heart and this youthful disposition is reflected in their dress, looks and exuberant body language. Most Threes look deceptively younger than their years. They have tremendous powers of restoration and revival after any setbacks in life. As active and versatile personalities many Threes submit to the temptation of scattering their energies in several directions. Specialisation of one form or another at an early age may not be undertaken unless they are subjected to firm direction.

The exuberant nature of the Three personality stands out in sharp contrast to the mellowed and deeper forces within a Twenty-Seven. These are well integrated individuals made up of the peaceful 2 vibration, the contemplative 7 and the humanitarian 9 vibration. Although each vibration belongs to a different plane of expression, none of them possess any disruptive or unrelated features that could cause disunity within the personality complex of the Twenty-Seven. A strong force of spirituality, intuition and extrasensory perception flows through all these vibrations to give the Twenty-Seven a very high degree of sensitivity to the physical and non-physical worlds. As a result, they react adversely to speed, unnecessary change, restlessness and ungovernable activity. These are aspects of the Three that will disturb the restful nature of the Twenty-Seven. The fundamental difference between these partners issues from the egocentric mind of the Three on the one hand, and the wide, understanding and universal outlook of the Twenty-Seven on the other hand; or we may say, the vigour of youth and the wisdom of maturity. This will be a lop-sided partnership in the sense that Threes are generally unconscious of a point of view or desires other than their own and therefore demand things their way, while the Twenty-Seven is able to instantly assess people and situation from all angles and accommodate them without causing discord, resentment or inconvenience to others. Threes, of course, are not possessively acquisitive in the sense that they are greedy and selfishly cling on to their possessions. On the contrary, they are generous and sharing. Their problem is that the moment they are attracted to something they want it, and their versatile nature is open to many temptations. They also have many psychological demands in the sense that they need the care and admiration of those around them. The Twenty-Seven will easily understand the clear-cut and open nature of the Three, but the Three will seldom comprehend the depth and complexity of the Twenty-Seven.

In outward ways the extroverted manner and natural thrust of the Three’s individuality will present the Three as the leader. They may take the initiative as the decision maker, but eventually this will be confined to their personal affairs only as the Twenty-Seven’s views will ultimately carry more weight in regard to matters relating to the partnership. Though Threes like to remain in charge of themselves, especially in regard to their own actions, they need the love and service of an organised partner in their domestic life. In private, the Three will eventually come to accept the leadership of the Twenty-Seven in setting limits as to how far they go in their various outside activities. The effectiveness of the Twenty-Seven’s influence over the Three partner will be based on a deep understanding of human nature. Their greater capacity for intuition and empathy give them an awareness of how people feel and what they really want – a quality which the Three personality is usually unable to reciprocate. By the same token, the Three’s vivacity and optimism should bring relief to the Twenty-Seven during periods of anxiety and indecision which they may suffer from on occasions, when some definite action has to be taken. In their interpretation of events, especially future events, Threes usually take an optimistic view while a Twenty-Seven may be inclined to uneasiness and some degree of uncertainty. Threes perceive situations in which they are involved as being either for them or against them and meet these situations by direct action or open confrontation. Twenty-Sevens perceive situations as complex and tentative, calling for the use of caution and subtlety in their attempts to deal with them.

Domestic duties do not attract either of these partners. The Three personality, especially, will regard such duties as restrictive and unproductive. They aim for forms of activity that fire their imagination and satisfy their need for interaction with people. The isolation and routine of domestic life linked with their distaste for physical work make them unwilling and often disenchanted homemakers. Twenty-Sevens are not genuine homemakers either but they will be attracted to home life for the peace and quiet it offers against the competition and materialism of public life. While running an efficient household they will make time for themselves and for the pursuit of personal interests. They are equipped to divide their talents between domestic life and specially chosen forms of employment. They are ideal people for self-employment in a home-based business. As real nature lovers they should find many sources of income from products of the land.

Social life will reveal some differences in the temperaments and tastes of these personalities, and the need for adjustment on both sides. The Three’s liking for novelty, excitement, a changing social scene and unconventional entertainment will clash with the Twenty-Seven’s preference for carefully chosen company, a slower pace and a reluctance to replace the familiar with the new and untested. The Three is a peer-oriented individual who chases company and entertainment that is ultra-modern while the Twenty-Seven favours classical forms of entertainment and the company of persons of a studious and questioning outlook on life. Although a partial blending of these attitudes is possible it is difficult to envisage the Twenty-Seven acquiring too many of the Three’s tastes. It is much more likely that the Three will be slowed down and influenced by the subtle efforts of the Twenty-Seven. The buoyant outlook of the Three and the mature outlook of the Twenty-Seven are revealed in the manner in which they approach people and life in general. The Three’s acute consciousness of their identity as individuals creates a sense of disconnectedness and a state of mind that supposes that the world revolves around them. Twenty-Sevens, on the other hand, are conscious of their identity with all life or, as mere links in a greater scheme of things. This comprehensive outlook creates the humanitarian in this personality which is one of their hallmarks. The Three thrives on experimentation with the pleasurable things of life and on self-expression and the popularity they expect from their efforts. While the totally extroverted Threes are true performers in the midst of company, Twenty-Sevens, who are mildly extroverted people, move in company as students and observers, and even as teachers. While Threes acquire popularity by bringing joy and laughter into society, Twenty-Sevens do so as humanitarian and knowledgeable people.

The Three will always be the outspoken partner and may often say things that may hurt the sensitively organised Twenty-Seven. They do not communicate with the same subtleties of feeling. In their zeal to be their own person they may overlook the sensitivity of those who love them. The Twenty-Seven has the wisdom to understand that this is due to the Three’s unthinking habits rather than an innate sense of selfishness or rudeness. Threes are essentially courteous and friendly people who need to be reminded from time to time of their obligations to others. Differences of opinion between these partners can be settled without bitterness developing afterwards. It is not in the nature of either party to bear a grudge or feel resentful. Both can communicate their feelings through speech and relieve themselves of pressures built up by the egocentric behaviour of the Three, and conduct of the Twenty-Seven, which the Three may consider too slow and cautious. The quality of the Three’s conversation is generally light-hearted and witty, and confined to topics that hold their interest. They are quite willing to talk of their affairs at length without embarrassment but lose interest with amazing rapidity when the topic of conversation is turned away from their affairs or into abstract matters. Twenty-Sevens are reserved in all personal discussions as they find no need to exhibit themselves in any way. Their sense of objectivity and breadth of vision raises a need for discussing philosophical and world-wide subjects, a need which may not be shared by their Three partners. The forceful body language of the Three reflects the fire and vigour of a vibrant and restless mind while the slower and dignified body language of the Twenty-Seven indicates the hidden reserves of a thoughtful personality.

A separation of ways due to divergence of interests is likely in their spare time. Threes may be more insistent on self-time than the Twenty-Seven. As they find relaxation difficult and do not really need too much of it, they are drawn into a wide variety of out-of-home and outdoor activity. Twenty-Sevens find relaxation easy, and indeed need this outlet in order to counteract the pressures of material life. With the right background and environment many Twenty-Sevens will engage in the pursuit of self-knowledge and a close study of human nature and human destiny. Pure Threes are generally prone to turn away hastily from self-study or from any form of arcane or esoteric study. They are much too fond of the pleasures and beautiful things of physical life to concern themselves with probing into its non-physical aspects. As Twenty-Sevens are attuned to higher frequencies they are naturally attracted to metaphysical enquiry.

The 7 vibration also introduces into the personality a love of nature and natural surroundings. Gardening and landscaping will become one of their keenest hobbies. This vibration, along with the 9, also contributes an attraction to anything that is historical or pre-historical, while the urge for collecting things is derived from the 2 vibration. Many Twenty-Sevens may therefore become students of history and collectors of antiquarian objects. The untraditional and modern mind of the Three partner has no interest in these hobbies. A mutual love of music and the whole of the art world may bring them together, but here again, the avant-garde mentality of the Three and the modern and popular forms of music and art taken up by them may clash with the classical forms favoured by the Twenty-Seven.

Financially, this partnership will be in a constant state of fluctuation. Both partners are capable of making money but neither party is attached to it for its own sake or for the security it may provide at some later date. They spend generously without counting the cost. Threes spend freely on themselves while Twenty-Sevens spend more on others and much less on themselves. Neither partner is likely to be firm enough to exercise control over their own or each other’s spending habits. If an unusual effort is made to save money it will be done by the Twenty-Seven. However, this partner could be persuaded to part with a nest egg if approached through the sentimental side of their nature. They are particularly vulnerable against the verbally gifted and winning ways of a Three partner.

Twenty-Sevens are generally tolerant and sympathetic of others and judge themselves unsparingly. Threes usually judge others critically but remain oblivious of their own shortcomings. They entertain high opinions of themselves which may not always be held to the same degree by others, while Twenty-Sevens may hold a humble opinion of themselves yet may be highly regarded. While generously giving credit to others, Twenty-Sevens reluctantly accept compliments for their own actions. Threes are the reverse, especially the negative Threes, who refuse to see talent in others and go to the extent of advertising their own real or imagined talents.

The Twenty-Seven’s attunement to a wider range of sensitive vibrations allow them to appreciate even the slightest variation in the moods and needs of those around them This, of course, adds stresses to their lives which the self-conscious Three does not feel. It could be unfortunate and inconvenient to be so organised unless the Twenty-Seven recognises and acquires the ability to close themselves, or make themselves impregnable to harmful influences. The different attitudes of these partners will be highlighted in their intimate lives with the Twenty-Seven turning out, in most ways, as the giver and the Three becoming the taker. While the emotional needs of the Three will be met by the perceptive Twenty Seven, their own emotional needs may be overlooked by the less discerning Three.

The Three partner who is born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months will attempt to dominate the partnership and may succeed in doing so in many outward ways. The leadership qualities of the 3 and 1 vibrations will be too strong to agree to an equalitarian partnership. Twenty-Seven who is born in one of these months will not attempt to take over the outright role of leader and decision maker. However, their natural wisdom will influence the partnership in all major issues without having to assert their position as equals or leaders. The position will be the same in any other combination of birth months. The Three will be allowed to maintain an outward show of authority, real or otherwise, while the Twenty-Seven discretely guides the affairs of the partnership from behind the scenes.

3RD AND 28TH BIRTHDAYS

A comparison of single digit and multiple digit birthdays reveals, at first sight, the concentrated characteristics of the single vibration in the former and the grouping of qualities of three vibrations in the latter. By and large, subjects of a single digit birthday face the world through the lens of the single vibration of their birthday. No doubt, the vibrations of the birth month and birth year contribute secondary observation points which may modify, expand or increase the intensity of their birthday vibration, but the focus will be mainly through the powers of the birthday vibration.

As a product of union between the two polarised primary forces symbolised by the active 1 vibration and receptive 2 (that make up the 3), the 3 vibration demonstrates the principle of youth. Though retaining many qualities of its parentage this vibration, operating on the mental plane, is distinguished by features that are entirely its own. Regardless of their age Three personalities remain young at heart and never fail to assert their individuality against all odds. While all Threes may take the same general direction in life, not all may cover the same distance. The vibrations of the birth month and other areas of power will control the degree in which they use their potential. For instance, Three personalities with the energetic 1 vibration in their birth months will undoubtedly be self-confident and proudly individualistic and use their potential to a greater degree than those with the gentler, cooperative and placid 2 or 6 vibrations in their birth months. A Three personality could be one of several types varying in strength from one-pointed individuality to a lenient and flexible temperament.

The 28th day of the month, despite its multiple digits, does not produce as many variations. Subjects of this birthday are basically One personalities (2 + 8 = 10 = 1). Through the 1 vibration they already possess a good measure of stability, individuality and self-confidence. They do not depend on other areas of influence for strength of purpose as this is provided not only by the 1 vibration but also by the 8 vibration. However, this birthday can present some problems on the emotional plane. The emotionalism of the 2 and 8 vibrations will normally be held in check by the underlying 1, but in the event of more emotional plane numbers such as the 2, 5 or 8 being repeated in the birth month the 1 vibration may not be strong enough to control excess of emotionalism which is bound to come out in the Twenty-Eight personality. This personality cannot be classed as a straightforward One, such as those born on the 1st or 10th day of the month, as some characteristics of the 1 vibration are modified by the 2 and others reinforced by the 8 vibration. The 8 has many qualities in common with the 1 and the combination of these vibrations will dominate the Twenty-Eight’s personality. The qualities of the 2 will, at the same time, exercise a softening influence over naturally aggressive qualities of the 1 and 8.

Despite the active nature of the 3 vibration controlling the Three personality and the receptive qualities of the 2 and 8 in the Twenty-Eight, a magnetic attraction of opposite polarities is unlikely to take place between Threes and Twenty-Eights. An attraction on the basis of similarities is even less likely. However, if these personalities do form a relationship based on superficial attractions, many fundamental differences in outlook will soon become evident, and neither party will be inclined to make concessions or adapt to the role expectations of a good partnership.

Twenty-Eights are builders in the sense that they dedicate themselves to the acquisition of wealth and power. They set out to achieve definite goals with a strong will, self-discipline and hard work. As a spin-off of their efforts their associates also acquire a measure of wealth and success. Other related qualities built into their personality complex are high ambition, competitiveness, judgment, analysis, foresight, practicality, deliberation, organisation, management and strength of purpose. Except for high ambition and an irresistible urge to take command, these enduring qualities are not present in the same strength in the Three personality. Their optimist and buoyant attitudes are bound to clash with the steadfastness of the Twenty-Eight. While this partner will always be mindful of the future and constantly think and work ahead of current events, the Three will be set on enjoying the pleasures of the present. As competent organisers Twenty-Eights have a knack of delegating duties. In their attempts to do so with a Three partner they will soon realise that the Three’s sense of responsibility in practical matters cannot always be relied upon. Many tasks may be left undone or incomplete. Threes are fond of having things done for them, and on a day-to-day basis, this will not be encouraged by a hardworking Twenty-Eight partner whose policy does not go beyond helping people help themselves. They do not tolerate being taken for granted by impractical people, nor do they believe in handouts in cash, goods or services. They are however approachable through the sentimental side of their nature and are generous to those in real need of help.

The authoritative and management aspects of the Twenty-Eight are likely to intrude into their private life causing instant conflict with the freedom loving Three. At most times, quite unconsciously, and at other times out of necessity, they will try to manage the affairs and influence the conduct of the Three. While a Three personality expects sympathy, tolerance, indulgence and various personal services from a partner they will reject any attempts to influence or control their lifestyle. They are usually attracted to partners who display strong maternal or paternal instincts. Assuming these traits are present in a Twenty-Eight they may mistakenly seek refuge in the strength of character seen in this personality. However, they will realise that the Twenty-Eight’s strength is neither maternal or paternal, but authoritative in a business and administrative sense, and will thus begin to feel ignored and overshadowed. The Twenty-Eight should understand the Three’s deep need to safeguard their individuality and any attempts to control them will only jeopardise an already tentative association. The Three personality is also fond of exercising command, but very little or no opportunity will be found in a partnership with a Twenty-Eight. The division of authority and responsibility may remain an unsolved problem.

Both partners are energised by challenges in life. The Three seeks a wide field for self-expression and the Twenty-Eight for execution of their administrative and organisational talents. They begin to lose power when life lacks a challenge. A domestic way of life will not be regarded as the answer to their ambitions. The Three, in particular, will not be an organised and satisfied homemaker. They are individuals who need to be where the action is, as it were, and may revolt against the routine, timetables and relative isolation from public life. They need motivation in the midst of people of their own extroverted temperament in order to employ and display their several artistic talents. If the Twenty-Eight partner is placed in the position of homemaker the household will be run with optimum efficiency, however, this mode of life will not be sufficient to use the stored up energy of the power-plus vibrations that make up this personality. If they fail to gain outlets in public life they could put in too much of their executive talents and authority into family life, thereby damaging the degree of intimacy, warmth and relaxation needed in home life.

Friendliness is an endearing quality found in both partners, but their capacity to make friends and maintain friendships is not quite the same due to differences in their individual levels of extroversion. Threes are free and open personalities who get to know people easily. As they do not let opportunities for pleasurable experiences slip by they attract people and encourage them to follow their lead. They consider it a folly to wait to enjoy themselves at some future date. The chief requirement for friendship with a Three is the love of excitement, laughter, comradeship, amusements and other joys of living. They insist on a prominent role in their social circles and think themselves ill-used when compelled to take a back seat. They have a greater dependency than most personality types on social life for their wellbeing, as they can only enjoy their pleasures in company. The Twenty-Eight on the other hand, is a cordial and affable personality and an excellent mixer, but they do not place the same emphasis on pleasure and friendships as the Three. While Threes may unwittingly neglect family responsibilities in a misplaced loyalty to friends, Twenty-Eights will always place loved ones and domestic duties before outside interests. They are also more critical and selective in their choice of company and sparing in the time they allow themselves for social activity. Their friendships are fewer but last longer as they are based on more enduring values.

The Three personality communicates almost entirely through the power of speech. They develop an enlarged vocabulary which they use with the consummate skills of natural talkers. Their rapid turnover of thoughts is translated into wards with almost equal speed, and their gift for words is usually accompanied by a good speaking voice. Much of their social popularity is derived from their communication skills and delightful sense of humour. Their fluency of speech could also be directed into negative channels. When adopting offensive or defensive attitudes they could disregard the feelings of others and use their fluency of speech in critical, satirical and other hurtful ways. The communication skills of the Twenty-Eight are of a different order. In the first instance, they are deliberate thinkers who remain careful and unhurried when they convey their thoughts into speech. By coming directly to the point in any matter they do not confuse themselves or others by an excess of words and phrases, and are usually fully aware of what they say. Dependence on word power for communication is greatly reduced through good body language. The emotionally expressive 2 and 8 vibrations act as a splendid substitute for fluency of speech. Twenty-Eights are tactful and gentle and at the same time positive and forceful. In discussions and arguments between these partners, (and there will be many), the Three may score some initial points, but sooner or later they will run out of steam when faced with the Twenty-Eight’s patience, judgment and willingness to talk things over.

Three personalities are usually too individualistic and preoccupied with their own interests to share their spare time with their partners, unless their partners selflessly give up their own interests and join in with the Three. A Twenty-Eight is most unlikely to make this sacrifice. While Threes will carefully divide their time between work and play, and even introduce some play into their working hours, the Twenty-Eight will put in more time and emotional effort into work and unintentionally leave much less time for recreation and relaxation. They could easily allow themselves to get caught up in the race for wealth and power, and narrow down their personal interests and breadth of outlook. As work-strain, tension and frustration may take its toll; they may want to use their limited free time enjoying the peace and quietude of simple home comforts in order to recharge their batteries. This is sure to come into conflict with their socially active Three partners whose hobbies will involve much out-of-home activity. Threes may accuse their Twenty-Eight partners of pre-occupation with work and material things while the Twenty-Eight may point their fingers at what they consider are many happy-go-lucky, costly and unproductive habits of the Three.

Both partners will demand freedom to handle their own finances. Consequently, frequent arguments will take place when attempts are made to work out some system to manage the partnership’s expenses. The Three’s capacity to handle money is unequal to their earning power. In other words, money comes into their hands through enterprise and versatility, but it leaves them just as easily on account of their expensive tastes and free spending habits. The lifestyle of the Twenty-Eight does not make as many demands on their finances. They seldom lose touch with practicality and constantly work on plans for the future, and in these plans financial security is given serious attention. They may be shocked by the Three’s lack of concern and cooperation in their efforts for a secure future. The only way the Twenty-Eight can be made to part with their money injudiciously is by approaches to the sentimental side of their nature. Threes have a much greater come-back after financial failure and are therefore able to recoup their losses or start afresh. Twenty-Eight’s do not have this capacity to such a degree as the Three. They put everything they have into building up a successful career or business, and in the event of serious loss they feel drained of enthusiasm and self-assurance. They take much longer to recover and begin re-establishing. A nest egg is an essential safeguard against a breakdown in the affairs of the Twenty-Eight, while the usual guarantee for the Three is their natural optimism and versatility.

The Three partner sooner or later becomes aware that the Twenty-Eight’s emotions are their weak point, just as the Twenty-Eight, in turn, knows that vanity is the Three’s weak point. The Twenty-Eight’s sentiments, however, are not always open and vulnerable as they are protected by the businesslike aspects of the 1 and 8 vibrations. However, the Three will look for every opportunity to take advantage of their sentiments in unguarded moments. It is unlikely that the Twenty-Eight will bother to play up too often to the vanity of the Three unless they find that there is some practical advantage to be gained by doing so. Despite many personality differences, the romantic and highly imaginative mentality of the Three can be made to complement the powerful emotions of the Twenty-Eight. Their intimate relations can become very successful if the Twenty-Eight makes allowance for the spontaneous actions of the Three, and the Three, in turn, understands that the Twenty-Eight keeps their emotions under control, and releases them only when they choose the time and place. The difference here is one of sensitivity. The Three could be wholly conscious of their own need at any given time or place but the Twenty-Eight will be conscious of mutual need and other practical considerations.

Positive Threes with minds of their own are those who are born in the 1st, 10, 11th and 12th months. The normally strong-willed Twenty-Eight becomes even stronger and more adamant in their views when they are also born in one of these months. Partnerships between these types of Threes and Twenty-Eights will lead to tense rivalry rather than good-natured competition or sincere attempts at cooperation. If the Three partner only is born in one of these months there will still be personality clashes but the chances of forming a partnership on an equal basis will be improved. These Threes will acquire many practical qualities. If the Twenty-Eight is the partner born in one of these months there is no doubt that this partner will take over the managing role. This will be the case even when neither partner is born with the powerful 1 vibration in the birth month.

3RD AND 29TH BIRTHDAYS

In our attempts to compare and contrast various birthdays we are faced with three categories, taken in order of simplicity or complexity. Firstly, two single digit birthdays such as the 3rdand 4th present the comparatively simple case of two straightforward Three and Four personalities functioning generally through the vibratory powers of the 3 and 4 vibrations respectively. Secondly, a single digit birthday and a multiple digit birthday, such as the present combination, takes us into a complicated category. In this instance we are faced with a relatively straightforward personality and a complex individual whose personality structure is composed of more than one vibration, each having almost equal value and power. The third category, of course, is a combination of two multiple digit birthdays. This is the most complicated one as there are more wheels within wheels in this combination than in the first two.

A Three/Twenty-Nine combination is a particularly difficult one due to the highly complex and variable structure of the Twenty-Nine personality. Attempts to sort out or classify a Twenty-Nine personality is difficult enough, but doing so in relation to an intimate association with another presents many more problems. The 29th is one of the most complex of all multiple digit birthdays as it contains no less than four vibratory forces. If the multiple digit is set out as follows: 2 + 9 = 11, or 2 + 9 = 11 = 1 + 1 = 2, it will be seen, in the first instance, that this birthday produces a Eleven personality and in the second instance, a Two personality. The Eleven personality motivates under the influence of a master vibration, which in turn is supported by the 2 and 9 vibrations. The 9 and 11 are vibrations advanced in humanitarian and spiritual aspects of life. They are complemented by the sensitive and psychic qualities of the 2 vibration. A Twenty-Nine operating on the level of the master vibration thus formed, is many degrees higher on the evolutionary scale than physically oriented and materialistic personality types. It will be extremely difficult to pick a partner on these high frequencies who can form a compatible and successful relationship with such a Twenty-Nine. Fortunately, not many Twenty-Nines remain on the high frequencies of the master vibration. The majority pass over to the influence of the 2 vibration to become intensified Two personalities. This intensification is due to the fact that this Two is formed by the digits of a master vibration. They are by no means the same as plain Twos born on the 2nd or 20th. Although these intensified Twos form their own vibratory levels for the most part, they do not entirely lose touch either consciously or unconsciously, with their high-powered background. When the intensified Two is under stress they can draw upon the strength of the master vibration which the plain Two has no recourse to. Due to the direct influence of the comprehensive 9 vibration and the subtle influence of the inbuilt 11, this second type of Twenty-Nine is also a problem partner.

Although there will be certain features in common in a Three/Twenty-Nine partnership, the differences that will arise will be far greater than any binding features. The Three is unlikely to ever understand the complexities of a Twenty-Nine’s personality; nor will the Twenty-Nine tolerate or accommodate to a Three’s self-centred lifestyle. For entirely different reasons both personalities are late starters in life. Due to their versatility and pleasure loving nature Threes are likely to sow their wild oats and change direction a few times before they settle down to a reasonably steady lifestyle. Helped along by their egocentricity they plunge into various forms of self-expression free from doubts arising from self-analysis and difficulties of self-understanding. The young Twenty-Nine is bewildered and tossed around here and there by the high-powered vibrations comprising the integral personality. Their minds find it difficult to understand and contain these powerful forces. It is only when a certain stage of maturity has been reached that they are able to settle down as mature and responsible adults. In the meantime they may leave behind a train of complicated and unsuccessful personal experiences.

This partnership is not likely to produce a dominant partner, nor will it form an interdependent or interlocking relationship. Both personalities need freedom from interference in their lifestyle, and once this is assured they may begin to develop some measure of closeness and mutual trust. Due to a natural urge to give orders and to have their own way, the Three may at the early stages of the relationship unwittingly attempt to take charge. They will soon be frustrated and put in place by the broader vision, greater understanding of life and elusive nature of the Twenty-Nine. The Three may thereafter settle down to a semi-independent life, tacitly accepting the guidance and reassurance of their wiser partner. Twenty-Nines do not entertain the idea of direct leadership but attract many responsibilities of leadership. They are most comfortable in a partnership of equals. This will be difficult to reach with a Three partner on account of high standards of conduct set by the Twenty-Nine. Much confusion is inevitable when the Three does not measure up to these standards and, furthermore, not all Twenty-Nines maintain their own high standards. Both personalities will lead restless and busy lives as several aspects of their nature call for attention at the same time. A little loneliness or occasional inactivity will be too much for either to bear. Functioning as a strong twosome will not be easy as their tastes and moods may not always coincide. The Twenty-Nine, especially, is subject to sudden pessimistic moods that may be brought on for no apparent reason, but may be triggered off by some petty action or remark by the Three. Since an ego-centred personality is usually unable to understand that to which they give no thought, the Three will find it hard to properly appreciate the largely impersonal, humanitarian and global thought processes of the Twenty-Nine, whose kinship with all living things covers a wide range of observation and feeling.

Professional employment involving a broad-based contact with people will attract both partners. The Twenty-Nine’s contacts will be quite far-reaching. There will be little attachment shown to a domestic way of life by both parties. Although the Twenty-Nine may have some intermittent domestic impulses, neither partner will settle comfortably into full-time domestic responsibilities in a quiet and secure suburban setting. No single person or set of circumstances can adequately accommodate the high spirits of the Three or the comprehensive outlook of the Twenty-Nine. As both, in their individual ways, will set out to experience life in its many phases, a lack of unity in their domestic arrangements will inevitably develop. Paid help may be the only alternative to settle this problem.

Domestic shortcomings and lack of cooperation in domestic life is not necessarily carried into their social life. This is one aspect of living to which both parties are attracted. While a host of friends and acquaintances with generally the same tastes will be cultivated by both, the Three will choose to remain for the most part within a peer group, but the Twenty-Nine will be at ease at all levels of personal contact. Whenever there is a need for someone to take up a prominent role in any activity either partner could become the peoples’ choice. A certain amount of friendly rivalry between them is always possible. The Three derives great personal satisfaction from the opportunities for self-expression afforded by an audience, while the Twenty-Nine, especially when motivated by the master vibration 11, is unconscious of personal credit and performs as an impersonal messenger of goodwill. Self-love is stronger in the Three than is the love of neighbour, while the Twenty-Nine with a broader vision, intermingles in society on the principle of love of neighbour. They are more tolerant of contradictory opinions and less demanding of personal attention. This may account for the greater popularity accorded to this personality. While Threes actively cultivate popularity the Twenty-Nine, indifferent to this favour, often achieves popularity with the least effort.

Fluency of speech is a gift enjoyed by both partners, but the employment of this gift is subject to their different temperaments. Threes are witty speakers and lively conversationalists, though they tend to become one-sided, insofar as they show impatience or lose interest when others take their turn to give out their opinions. Twenty-Nines are knowledgeable and informative conversationalists and keen listeners, with the added advantage of expressive body language. In arguments with their Three partners, (and there will be many between this pair) Twenty-Nines will resort to frequent emotional outbursts. Threes will make their point through humour, satire and cutting speech. However, when not emotionally aroused, both partners derive tremendous pleasure from the funny side of things. They are able to look back and laugh at human frailties that may have previously upset them. Despite their volatile natures Twenty-Nines can make up their minds to settle down and discuss personal differences. Their Three partners however may shy away from discussing emotionally charged issues. The wisdom of the Twenty-Nine will be drawn upon as a guiding force in such situations.

Three personalities have difficulty coping with those who do not share their contemporary thoughts and who are unable to associate with them in their outer worldly experiences. Younger Twenty-Nines can do so quite easily and even surpass their Three partners in the enjoyment of the outer pleasures of life. At this stage Threes and Twenty-Nines will find much common ground for use of their leisure hours, especially in art, music, literature and the theatre. However, this seemingly agreeable situation may not last throughout their partnership. As a Twenty-Nine grows into maturity many pleasures previously enjoyed, especially their social outings, become distasteful when deeper spiritual forces inherent in this personality begin to activate. A pressing desire to take up study into the deeper meaning of life overrides many earlier interests. When this stage is reached the Twenty-Nine finds it hard to cope with those who do not share their newly elevated thoughts and newly discovered avenues for expression and self-development. From this stage onward the Twenty-Nine may remain several scales higher than their Three partners in their outlook on life. All Twenty-Nines are reformers at heart, and the urge to improve and reform human conditions will be directed into humanitarian activities at the expense of personal pleasures. There may be attempts to convert their Three partners to their ways of thinking, but these overtures may be rejected resulting in a separation of their private lives. Twenty-Nines will also develop a keen interest in world travel for educational and cultural purposes, which will not always be shared by their Three partners. With the passage of time they are more likely to move away from each other than move towards each other with shared interests.

Financial stability will seldom be achieved in this partnership as neither partner is able to keep a tight rein on expenditure. Although both have an excellent earning capacity they do not have the self-control or sense of financial responsibility to handle money wisely. They are both impulsive spenders with expensive tastes. Rarely will they take time or make an effort to get the best value for their money or confine their expenditure to essential needs. No attachment is shown for money for its own sake or for the security it may ensure in the future. While Threes spend freely on themselves, Twenty-Nines spend generously on themselves and on others. With little commercial sense they are impressionable and vulnerable to deceit by unscrupulous parties. By boosting their egos Threes are easily ensnared and Twenty-Nines are just as easily misled when their sentiments are touched. However, the great advantage both parties possess is their capacity to restore, rebuild and re-establish themselves after adversity. This ability to make a full comeback accelerated will be accelerated when they join forces.

Though the personalities of both partners sparkle with romance and sex-appeal their intimate relationship will not be a smooth one. The success or failure of the Three personality in any loving relationship depends on the amount of love and endearment they receive from their partners. No doubt, this is a need shared by all of us, but a Three personality, particularly once they enter into a romantic relationship, craves to be loved and cared for without cessation. They look for, as their due, much more devotion from their partners than they are prepared to give in return and seldom become aware of this discrepancy in their behaviour. There is a consistency, however, in their expectations and responses which is not found in the Twenty-Nine. The temperamental nature of the Twenty-Nine is in no way conducive to a calm and well-balanced love relationship. Periodically, these individuals turn from being warm, loving and self-sacrificing partners to cool, distant people with very puzzling moods. A Three partner will be at a genuine loss to handle such highs and lows in behaviour. Their self-confidence, which is largely built upon the love and admiration they receive from their partners, will be severely impaired. In the meantime, the Twenty-Nine would remain unhappy and frustrated with themselves in their unending battle to rationalise and overcome their fluctuations of mood. Twenty-Nines also demand freedom of action and movement, and at the best of times the three will not receive their concentrated attention. Despite their volatile natures Twenty-Nines possess great depths of love and loyalty, but the self-centred Three will not gauge the comprehensive nature of this partner and consequently resent having to share their attention with others involved in their busy lifestyle. Though younger Twenty-Nines have the same desire for love and romance as their Three partners their love life is always turbulent. They fall in love with great intensity but romance quickly fades away if their partners fail to live up to the ideal of their dreams. Threes usually do so as they refuse to comply with standards set by the Twenty-Nine. Though their sense of romance never leaves them older Twenty-Nines are less dependent on sentimental attachments as they are able to take up other pursuits during romantic interludes. Threes on the other hand need to be always involved in love and romance over and above their other activities.

Stronger individuality and a firm sense of direction will be shown by Threes and Twenty-Nines born in the 1st, 10th, 11th and 12th months. These individuals will face each other and the world with positive attitudes. While there are bound to be several personality clashes they also have a good chance of sensibly reconciling their differences by using the realistic and practical attributes provided by the 1 vibration. If one partner only is born in one of these months, the decision making role will be taken over by this partner, but not without considerable opposition on the part of the other. If neither partner has the self-directing 1 vibration in the birth month the partnership will lack order and stability.

3RD AND 30TH BIRTHDAYS

Three personalities are produced by the 3rd as well as the 30th days of the month. The compatibility of a couple who are both born on the 3rd will be slightly different to a couple who are both born on the 30th. The Zero tends to emphasise the power of the vibrations of any number, especially a birthday number. The present combination of birthdays will therefore produce a regular Three personality, on the one hand, and, on the other hand a Three personality whose 3 characteristics may be emphasised.

The vibrations of the birth month and other spheres of influence play a constructive part in forming the integral personality. The emphasis acquired by a Thirty could be retained or it could be lost in the overall personality structure – This is a point to be kept in mind when comparing these birthdays. Despite a possible variation in the intensity of 3 characteristics in this combination, the chapter on 3rd and 3rd birthdays will more than adequately cover the issue of compatibility.

3RD AND 31ST BIRTHDAYS

Interaction between a straightforward Three personality and a qualified Four personality will be seen in this combination. Their relationship will be the same as that between a Three and another qualified Four, namely an individual born on the 13th day of any month. It may be mentioned that the influence of the 3 vibration is slightly stronger in the Thirty-One than in the Thirteen because the 3 comes before the 1, but this does not make any appreciable difference in their interaction with a Three personality.

The chapter on 3rd and 13th birthdays should be consulted.
