I have a very personal relationship with the Number Four. I have a Four birthday, a Four Karmic Debt Number, triple Four Challenge Numbers and am in a 22/4 Major Cycle. Any way you look at it, that’s a lot of Four’s.
So in ruminating about the effects of the Number Four for me personally this month, it dawned on me that everyone can benefit from an understanding of this number’s gifts and challenges.
We are all required to master the energies of the Number Four. The challenge may show up prominently in your numerology chart as it does in mine – or, it may be simply a “Karmic Debt” number, meaning that your birth certificate name lacks any letters that carry Four’s vibration and that none of your other key codes in your numerology chart are Fours.
Because we are all working the challenges of Four this month (and actually ongoing all the time in one way or another), here are some tips on mastering the energies of the Four.
In my Day of Birth Guidelines handout, I list the following as traits and talents often found among those with prominent Number Four in their numerology charts:
Methodical Steady, Consistent
Industrious, Diligent Prudent with Money
Analytical Leadership Skills
Mechanical Ability Conservative, Traditional
When Four energy is out of balance, we can see a pendulum swing to the left or right of the above admirable traits. Add the word “over” to most of the above descriptions and you’ll get the picture. – Or add the word “not” to the above traits, and you’ll have a clear vision of what happens when Four energy is not activated.
With Four energy being dominant as both a Universal and month vibration during April, we can individually and collectively be more prone to experiencing some of Four’s imbalanced characteristics.
Prominent among them are:
A tendency to be all work and no play: Those imbued with Four energy tend to demand more from themselves than anyone else – and often refuse help due to a false belief that no one can do the job better than they can. Many diligent and well-intentioned Fours can work themselves into a state of exhaustion to the point where their health fails, and they are forced to rest and restore their stamina.
Financial challenges: Those who are under Four’s influence can have a tendency to be unnecessarily stingy with their money, denying themselves things that would make their lives less stressful and comfortable. On the other side of the coin, Four out of balance can also motivate impractical financial choices which result in ultimate lack and deprivation. It’s not unusual for those with Four prominent in their charts to be simultaneously both excessively frugal about some expenditures and excessively spendthrift in other categories.
Relationship dynamic challenges: Those with Four strong in their charts can be excellent supervisors and administrators. Sometimes the skill to lead is accompanied with a predilection to be pontifical and “bossy.” This tendency, of course, does not foster harmonious team dynamics and respect for authority. Fours can also be emotionally reserved and distant which adds additional challenge to relationships, especially when interacting with those who need acknowledgement and support.
Health challenges: Fours are also prone to health issues particularly those related to body structure as structure is one of the components of the Four dynamic. Thus neuromuscular, skeletal and dental issues can present themselves.
For all the above – and other challenges of the Four – now is an excellent time to set an action plan for self-improvement. Although those with Four energy may be more likely to choose self-help (see above), finding a counselor, coach, mentor, support group or, if relevant, a healthcare practitioner, can be especially appropriate now.
Four corresponds to the astrological sign of Taurus. When mastered, Four can bestow all the things we strive for in terms of material security – ample money in the bank, a secure and comfortable home with well-stocked pantry and stable family dynamics.
Always remember, “Four-warned” is “Four-armed!” – And may the “force” be with you to reap the rewards of the Four to enjoy a life well-lived on the material plane.
