You and your star!
July 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ
Persons born on July 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ.
Number 5 people in this month.
If you were born on any of the above dates, following the rules of Zodiacal Astrology and my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of Mercury, the Moon and Neptune in the Zodiacal Sign of Cancer, First House of the Water Triplicity.
The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in preceding pages for persons born in July.
In your case the influence of Mercury, the Moon and Neptune will play an important role in your life.
You will be extremely sensitive and impressionable to both people and surroundings. You will be readily responsive to all acts of kindness, and praise and encouragement will be to your nature as water is to flowers.
In your early years you will find it extremely difficult to acquire confidence in yourself and in your abilities, but once you “feel your feet,” as the expression goes, you will go ahead and never falter in carrying out your purpose.
You will have an extremely keen brain and an intense desire for intellectual things with great ambition to dominate others in whatever career you may choose.
You will be spiritually inclined with an intense wish to investigate questions concerning the “world beyond” and to search for experiences on such lines of thought.
Your greatest fault will be that you may let yourself go too far in forcing your plans to an issue, making enemies and bringing about great opposition. You will have a great longing for travel, especially by water and this you will satisfy as far as your circumstances will permit.
In a material way, at times, you are likely to make lucky strikes in money, but will find great difficulty in keeping what you have made.
You are likely to develop strong will, and self-confidence. With these two powerful weapons you can easily succeed in the battle of life on account of the unusual intellect you have been endowed with.
You will have a great deal of tact and diplomacy when you wish to make use of such aides, and you could be very successful in a diplomatic career, provided it was important enough to stimulate your interest. You could readily adapt yourself to people of other countries and see their point of view, even when their ideas run contrary to your own.
In questions of money making, you could be very successful if you follow your own intuitions and work “on your own.” Your class of brain is of a very clever order but so quick and versatile that you would tire easily of any routine or monotonous life.
You will have remarkable recuperative powers; would quickly recover from many illness no matter how grave. Your principal troubles will come from highly-strung nerves and your inability to take sufficient rest or relaxation. You are likely in advanced years to suffer from a nervous twitching in the face and eyes and some danger of injury or paralysis in the legs and feet.
Your most important number is the “five” and all its series, such as the 5, 14 and 23. Other numbers that will effect you considerably are the series of “two” and “seven.”
You should endeavour to make your important engagements or plans on dates in any part of the year making the above series, such as the 2ⁿᵈ, 5ᵗʰ, 7ᵗʰ, 11ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 16ᵗʰ, 20ᵗʰ, 34rd, 25ᵗʰ and 29ᵗʰ.
Your most favourable colours are:
Mercury: All light colours.
The Moon: Creams, white and pale green.
Neptune: All shades of dove-grey and pastel colours.
You should not wear dark heavy colours of any description.
Your “lucky” jewels are diamonds, pearls, all kinds of white glistening stones and jade ornaments.
Your most important or climacteric years in life are the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ, 32ⁿᵈ, 41ˢᵗ, 50ᵗʰ, 59ᵗʰ, 68ᵗʰ, 77ᵗʰ and 86ᵗʰ.
You will find strong magnetic attraction to persons born on dates making a “five,” such as the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ and the series of “two” and “seven” in any month of the year.
* I was introduced to Cecil Rhodes, called the “Maker of South Africa,” by his close friend, W. T. Stead. He was a great believer in Destiny and the influence of numbers in people’s lives. He told me that his number five appeared in all the important moves in his life.
** W. T. Stead, the celebrated editor of the “Review of Reviews,” took an interest in my work from the moment I started in London. He gave me signed impressions of his hands which I reproduced in my “Language of the Hand,” as far back as 1894. The year before he met his death in the Titanic disaster he acknowledged my letter of warning “not to travel by sea during April of1912.” Alas! that he did so, but as he himself had often said: “Perhaps ‘the Great Adventure’ is the most interesting of all.” He went forward to meet it with the same indomitable courage he had shown all through his life, in that terrible disaster to the Titanic on April 15ᵗʰ, 1912.
