May 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26ᵗʰ


Persons born on May 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26ᵗʰ.

Number 8 people in this month.

If you were born on any of the above dates, following the rules of Astrology and my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of Saturn, the Moon and Venus, in the Zodiacal Sign of Taurus, First House of the Triplicity of Earth. If born on May 26ᵗʰ you will be in the “cusp” of Gemini, First House of the Triplicity of Air, whose ruler is Mercury, (Positive).


The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in preceding pages for persons born in May.


In your special case you may expect a very unusual life and career, either one fortunate and powerful, or extremely the reverse.


You will find yourself what is called a “Child of Fate," in which circumstances surroundings and conditions will play the most important part.


You will crave for love and affection from others and yet feel very isolated in life.


You will not be demonstrative in your emotions and will find great difficulty in expressing your feelings.               

You will sacrifice yourself greatly for others, especially your own relations or those bound to you by ties of affection, yet you will feel “lonely hearted” and be inclined to feel you have not had the return for what you have done.


You are likely to have much sorrow and loss caused by relatives, and in all matters of love or affection you are likely to pass through many severe trials.


You will find much restriction and difficulties preventing you from carrying out your own individual ambitions. You may rise to hold very high positions but they will nearly always carry with them some heavy cross or responsibility for you to bear.


You will be of a deep thoughtful nature, extremely reserved and cautious in all affairs concerning your own individual career.


If born on May 26ᵗʰ, the “cusp” of the in-coming Sign of Gemini ruled by Mercury (Positive) you will be more adaptable to both persons and circumstances than if born under the other number “eights.”               



You will gain through strict economy, carefulness and prudent investments in things of a solid nature, but not from “get-rich-quick” methods, or gambles of any kind. You would have great ability in the opening up and development of land, also mining and house properties.                                                         



In matters of health you will have a solid, sturdy constitution, but one more or less of the phlegmatic order, with some tendency for tumours, internal lesions, appendicitis, stoppages and trouble in the lower intestinal tract.


You will be liable to severe attacks of rheumatism and should endeavour to live in a high dry climate as much as possible.


You will find the numbers of “fours” and “eights” inclined to be drawn into your life in many extraordinary ways, such as the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ and 31ˢᵗ.                                     

To increase your magnetic vibrations, I would advise you to use the colours of: 

Sun: All shades of gold, yellow, orange, golden brown.       

Moon: All shades of green, creams and white.


Venus: All shades of blue, especially sapphire blues.


For “lucky” jewels you should wear black diamonds, topaz, amber, green, jade, pearls, sapphires, and turquoise.


The most important or climacteric years of your life are the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ, 31ˢᵗ, 35ᵗʰ, 40ᵗʰ, 44ᵗʰ, 49ᵗʰ, 53ʳᵈ, 58ᵗʰ, 62ⁿᵈ, 67ᵗʰ, 71ˢᵗ and 80ᵗʰ.


You will find yourself greatly attracted to persons born on the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ and 26ᵗʰ in any month of the year.


*  As I have related in the first volume of my Memoirs, published in 1912, I had the honour of meeting Her Majesty, Queen Mary before her marriage to R.H.H. the Duke of York, later King George V. When the date of her wedding was announced, it was suggested to me that I should send the Princess May, as she was then called, my book on hands. I had a special copy printed, bound in white calfskin and gold, which I sent Her Royal Highness about a fortnight before the marriage.

To my astonishment and delight, the same day the book reached its destination, I received, by special messenger, the following gracious acknowledgement:

                                                                               “White Lodge, May 21, 1893.

“The Princess May acknowledges with many thanks ‘Cheiro’s book, which he so thoughtfully sent her. She will be most happy to accept it and will place it among her wedding presents.”

**  0n several occasions I met General, Sir Horace Smith-Dorien, one of the remarkable personalities of the Great War. The General was extremely interested in my System of Numbers, and informed me that his birth-number, the final digit of 8, had played an eventful role all through his career.
