You and your star!
April 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26ᵗʰ
Persons born on April 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26ᵗʰ.
Number 8 people in this month.
If you were born on one of the above dates, such as April 8ᵗʰ or 17ᵗʰ, following the rules of Astrology and my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of Saturn with Mars (Positive), in the Zodiacal Sign of Aries, First House of the Triplicity of Fire. But if born on April 26ᵗʰ, this date being the first of the Number Eight series in the next Sign—Taurus, First House of the Triplicity of Earth ruled by Venus, you will come under very different conditions than if born on the 8ᵗʰ or 17ᵗʰ.
The 8ᵗʰ or 17ᵗʰ of April, under the vibrations of Saturn and Mars, is not a very favourable combination, unless you exercise great caution and prudence in all your actions.
The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in preceding pages for persons born in April, only in your case the things indicated will be more emphasised.
You will meet with great difficulties and obstacles to your ambitions during the first half of your life. You will be held back by ties of home and relations and are likely to have many people to support or care for.
You will be very ambitious and rather chafe and struggle against the conditions of your life, but your greatest asset will be your dogged perseverance and determination.
You are not likely to be lucky with partners in business or in marriage, especially an early one. You will be liable to meet with considerable opposition and unhappiness. Late partnerships and late marriage would be more favourable.
You will have remarkable ideas and plans for the starting of new industries and for the developing of business on a large scale. Your greatest difficulty will be to find others who will see with you “eye to eye.”
You will be likely to attempt things on “big lines,” but your persistency, great will power and determination are likely to carry you through in the end.
Although you will not have any real love of money except as a means to an end, you will be tormented by the fear of poverty and so at times you may be considered “close-fisted" or mean by those who only judge on the surface.
You will be extremely reserved, not trusting people easily, more or less suspicious of strangers and always inclined to keep “a card up your sleeve."
You will be acquisitive, hoarding up things in closets and trunks that you may never use.
The dates of the 8ᵗʰ or 17ᵗʰ of April generally produce excellent doctors, surgeons, scientists, chemists or organisers of every description.
If born on April 26ᵗʰ, being at the commencement of the incoming Sign of Taurus, House of Venus (Positive), many of the qualities already mentioned will in your case be softened by the Venus side of your nature. When opposed you will “fight to the death" in defence of your views, but when the battle is over you will be most forgiving and repentant for the hasty words you may have used.
You will be inclined to lack patience with others and lose control over your temper on the least provocation.
You are likely to be drawn into many lawsuits in the course of your life. Ana rule you will have much worry and disappointment with lawyers and would do best in fighting your own battles.
You are not likely to be fortunate in money matters until past middle life, but when it does come it will recompense you for what you have passed through.
As the “cusp” of Taurus commences on April 19ᵗʰ, the seven days added to it brings April 26ᵗʰ to the first day of Taurus, the Bull, First House of Earth, consequently you should do well in the opening up of land, making money by its development, also in estates and house property. All Venus things will be favourable for you, such as the manufacture of perfumes, cultivation of flowers, trees or plants. You will also be extremely fond of music, painting and the decorative arts in general.
Your chief faults will be extravagance in thought and actions, the desire to carry things out on a large scale, inclined to be too “bull-headed" and obstinate, to not know “when to give in” or to learn the lesson that “discretion is the better part of valour.”
Your life will be full of contradictions, born on April 26ᵗʰ on the ending of the “cusp” of Mars (Positive), and standing at the beginning of Venus (Positive), with Saturn as a powerful influence. You must expect what is called “a marked” life and to meet with much opposition in the carrying out of your plans.
Your obstinate perseverance and headstrong qualities will always be a great asset in your favour, but you will find very few persons, if any, that you can work easily with in “double harness.”
You will be more likely to be the architect of your own fortune than receive much help from others, but there is no reason for you not to eventually succeed and even become wealthy.
In health, if born on the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ or 26ᵗʰ of April, you are likely to have some very peculiar experiences such as the wrong diagnose of your ailments, wrong medicines prescribed for you and such like.
You should studiously avoid drugs of all kinds, also wines or spirituous drinks. You should study your diet and keep your intestines in good condition or you will be liable to auto-poisoning, boils, carbuncles, skin complaints, constipation and such ills, also some peculiar condition of the blood.
You are liable to undergo many operations, especially those concerned with the jaws, teeth and bones of the head. You will be likely to have the tonsils removed early in life and experience delicacy in connection with the nose, throat, ears and lungs.
You will find the numbers of “four” and “eight” inclined to come into your life with great significance, such as the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ and 31ˢᵗ.
I do not advise you to deliberately select these numbers, or dates for your own purpose, but to make use of them as they come along.
If you were born as late in April as the 26ᵗʰ you should use the numbers of Venus as much as possible, such as the 6ᵗʰ, 15ᵗʰ and 24ᵗʰ and those of the Sun, the 1ˢᵗ, 10ᵗʰ, 19ᵗʰ and 28ᵗʰ.
To increase your magnetic vibrations I would advise you to use the colours of the Sun as much as possible, and next to that those of Venus and Mars.
The Sun: All shades of gold, yellow, orange, golden brown or bronze.
Venus: All shades of blue, but especially those of the sapphire order.
Mars: All shades of red, crimson or rose.
For “lucky” jewels wear diamonds, topaz, amber, rubies, garnets, red stones, sapphires and emeralds.
The most important or climacteric years in your life are the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ, 31ˢᵗ, 35ᵗʰ, 40ᵗʰ, 44ᵗʰ, 49ᵗʰ, 53ʳᵈ, 58ᵗʰ, 62ⁿᵈ, 67ᵗʰ, 76ᵗʰ and 80ᵗʰ.
You will find a strong magnetic attraction to persons born on dates making a “four” or “eight” in any month of the year, such as the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ and 31ˢᵗ. Also persons born on the 1ˢᵗ, 10ᵗʰ, 19ᵗʰ, 28ᵗʰ and if born on April 26ᵗʰ, as well the 6ᵗʰ, 15ᵗʰ and 24ᵗʰ.
Persons born on the series of “fours” and eights” on the four Cardinal Points of the Zodiac, which are April, July, October and from the 22ⁿᵈ December to February 19ᵗʰ, will find the numbers of “fours and eights” of more meaning and importance in their lives than those born on the same series in other months of the year.
