Persons born on August 4ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 31ˢᵗ.
Number 4 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 Uranus and the Sun in the Sign of Leo the Lion, Second House of the Triplicity of Fire. If born on August 31ˢᵗ you would be at the commencement of the neat Sign—Virgo, Second House of the Triplicity of Earth, and more influenced by the Sun, Uranus and Mercury (Negative ).
The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in previous pages for persons born in August. In your special case, under the influence of the Uranian vibration the more individual side of your character will stand out with much prominence.
You will have a very decided love of independence, both in thought and action.
You will incline towards unconventionality in every form.
You are likely to be considered more or less eccentric and odd and will not easily fit in with the plans of others.
Your own people and close relations will be the most difficult to get on with.
You will resent restraint and criticism and if you are in the position to do so you will break away from home ties and travel extensively.
You will require to develop great patience, especially in dealing with any intimate relationships.
If you have the means to strike out for yourself and can do so, you would probably make a distinct success in some unusual kind of work or career.
You will have unconventional views as regards both religion and life in general, and will be inclined to make many enemies by the extreme frankness of your method of expression.
If born on any of these mentioned dates in the month of August, you will have many unusual adventures in the course of your life, together with experiences in your affections with many disappointments and sorrows in connection with love matters, particularly in connection with your home and domestic life. This part will not be so much in evidence if you were born on August 31ˢᵗ.
In matters of finance you will be difficult to understand. You will apparently care little about money, and yet attract it to you for the power it can give. In business matters you will either trust implicitly, or be suspicious of the persons you are associated with.
You would do better working alone. You can see both sides to every question and can argue out either side with equal force and conviction.
You could make a success in financial matters as a banker, and you will be likely sooner or later to strike some new idea in whatever your career may be that will bring you large returns.
You will have a good constitution, but one largely dependent on whether your surroundings are congenial or otherwise. Good health or the reverse will be enormously influenced by your state of mind. If unhappy you will be inclined to brood, become melancholy and shrink, as it were, too much within yourself.
Your system will have a tendency for auto-poisoning, obstructions and mysterious ailments difficult to diagnose.
The bones of the body will be more or less brittle, and you will have to be particularly careful against sudden falls and injuries to the feet and legs, some weakness or injury to the spine may also be expected.
There are two classes of persons that belong more especially to those born under the Uranian numbers and dates in August. One type is inclined to put on fat rapidly towards middle life. If you belong to this class you should guard yourself against heart disease or coma affecting the brain.
If on the contrary you belong to the type that begins to lose flesh readily as you approach middle life, you should take precautions against all forms of nerve disease that if not taken in time may threaten paralysis in later years.
Your most important numbers and dates all through your life will be the4ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 31ˢᵗ; also the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ and 26ᵗʰ, especially during the period from June 21ˢᵗ to the end of August and again from the 21ˢᵗ of December to February 19ᵗʰ.
You will be strongly attracted to persons born on the above dates and you will find that such persons will play a more or less fatalistic role in relation to your destiny.
The colours that would give you the best vibrations for your success are very similar to those for persons born on the same dates during July, namely all shades of sapphire-blue or ultra-marine, with combinations of gold, yellow, orange and bronze.
The “lucky” jewels for the 4ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ and 31ˢᵗ of August are sapphires, diamonds, rubies and topaz.
The most important or climacteric years for persons born on these dates are the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ, 31ˢᵗ, 35ᵗʰ, 40ᵗʰ, 44ᵗʰ, 49ᵗʰ, 53ʳᵈ, 58ᵗʰ, 62ⁿᵈ, 67ᵗʰ and 71ˢᵗ.
* Aubrey Beardsley, the well known English “Black and White” artist, had a very mystical turn of mind. He was considered “queer and eccentric” by many people. He often came to see me when I lived in London.
** Buddy Rogers, who so rapidly came to the front in motion pictures, was introduced to me by Mary Pickford during the first “shots” she made with him at the United Artists Studios. She had me look at his hands. He was then young, practically unknown. I was able to assure her she had made a good choice. She certainly had, for in the next few years Buddy Rogers “made good” and rapidly became a favourite with the public.
*** Emma Eames, the famous American Prima Donna, often consulted me in Paris and New York. She was greatly relieved when I told her that 13, her birth-number, was not the unlucky symbol that so many believe it to be. She had a beautiful voice which she had trained to perfection, but was considered “cold” and unemotional. As nearly all “Number Four” persons are reserved in manner and inclined to be undemonstrative, this great artist had a difficult time during her early career, in proving to her critics that she had the mental power back of her to interpret the great roles of grand opera. In the end she overcame all opposition and won fame and success.
