You and your star!
August 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23nd
Persons born on August 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23nd.
Number 5 people in this month.
If you were born on any of the above dates, following the rules of Zodiacal Astrology combined with my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of Mercury, the Sun and Uranus in the Sign of Leo the Lion, Second House of the Triplicity of Fire.
The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in preceding pages for persons born in August.
In your special case the more dominant qualities will be influenced by the planets of Mercury, the Sun and Uranus.
Mercury in Leo, also called the House of the Sun, is a good mental combination. It promotes intellectuality and judgment in all matters relating to the mind. Its chief danger is that it makes people rather impetuous and hasty in their decisions, also quick tempered and impatient with those who cannot actor think quickly.
The better qualities it bestows are a strongly ambitious nature, it is especially beneficial for authors, artists, actors and all those whose work has to appeal to the public.
The combination of Mercury and the Sun in this period of the year gives assurance, self-confidence and much financial ability, but may incline one at times to take great risks or go in for speculative ventures, but as a rule it is a fortunate combination if kept well under control.
The combination of Mercury with Uranus will bring sudden and unexpected changes into the life, also in the career or profession, together with restlessness of disposition and much desire for change of place or travel.
If you were born on one of these dates, the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ or 23ʳᵈ of August, which by natural addition make the single number of “five”—the number of the planet Mercury—you will be sensitive and highly strung with nerves generally at high tension.
At die same time you possess both will power and control over yourself when working for any set purpose provided it is not one of long duration.
You will abhor drawn out tasks or monotony of any kind, and will succeed best at the call of some sudden emergency or when working at “fever heat” over a plan, purpose or ideal that you have close to your heart.
You will be inclined to be changeable in your love affairs, a new face having always a strong attraction for you. You will be very adaptable to persons and circumstances until the novelty wears off.
You will be fond of dancing and movement and all forms of play that requires agility or quickness.
You are likely to take an interest in airplanes and swift motor cars; in fact, all inventions that can annihilate distance.
You will not be an easy person to advise or reason with, as you will be very much inclined to be “a law unto yourself.”
You will be exceptionally clever in originating schemes for others. You will be so versatile and adaptable that nothing comes amiss to you. Your greatest danger lies in forming undesirable acquaintances who may lead you into trouble before you are almost aware of their influence.
You will be inclined to live too much on your nerves, to exhaust your system by having little moderation in anything you do. You will be liable to suffer from neuralgia in various parts of the body, at times to have acute attacks of indigestion and deranged internal organs.
For such things you will be inclined to fly to the quickest means of relief and may become an addict to drugs or stimulants if you do not keep yourself under absolute control. An example of this may be found in the life of that brilliant French author, Guy de Maupassant.
Your most important numbers and dates in any month, but especially during June and September, are the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ, with as secondary numbers the 1ˢᵗ, 10ᵗʰ, and 19ᵗʰ and 28ᵗʰ.
You should endeavour to use these dates in making appointments, or for trying to carry out your own plans and engagements. At the same time I have to state that all persons who come under the “number five” are less influenced than others as far as the law of numbers is concerned. Such people are adaptable to all numbers, as well as to people no matter when they may be born.
It is the same way with colours. You could wear all shades with equal success, but at heart you will be inclined to favour light tones more than any others.
Your “lucky” jewels are diamonds, pearls and bright glittering stones of all descriptions.
The most important or climacteric years of your life are the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ, 32ⁿᵈ, 41ˢᵗ, 50ᵗʰ, 59ᵗʰ and 68ᵗʰ.
You will find a certain amount of attraction for persons born on the series of “fives” in any month of the year, such as the 5ᵗʰ, 14ᵗʰ, 23ʳᵈ, but being a “number five” person, you will not be as much influenced by any special series as you will remain adaptable to all.
