Relationships | 4 September 2015What Your Birthdate Says About Your Romantic Compatibility Share article facebook twitter google pinterest What might the positioning of the Sun, Moon and planets at the time of your birth have to do with your romantic tendencies? Astrology and numerology provide an answer. Whether you are in a loving and committed relationship, actively dating, or frolicking somewhere in-between, Lovestrology by Phyllis Vega can provide insight and nuanced perspective on your love and sex life. This book provides detailed profiles for all 366 calendar birthdays of the year. Learn more about your love persona, your sexuality, what turns you on, and even what areas of your love life can at times require a reality check. Then, you can explore the same topics as they apply to your romantic partner(s) – or study to determine who would make the best match for you! Most people are familiar with their zodiac sign, but few are familiar with the ancient art of numerology, the divination methodology that interprets numbers as symbols of varying vibrational patterns that form the human experience. Drawing from both astrology and numerology, Lovestrology provides an even more personalized assessment than does the standard horoscope (and on the topics people ask about most!). Learn about your birthday “root numbers” below, and what they say about you.

Pythagoras and his followers also believed that by contemplating numbers they would discover the spiritual key leading to the divine. The basic premise of most systems of numerology is that everything in the universe is in motion and has its own rate of vibration. The sum total of the numbers in any date of the year reveals that date’s vibratory rate. The individual numbers in the date are like the musical notes in a song. Although each number carries its own message, the total of them all, when reduced to a single digit, is comparable to the dominant chord in the song. The sum of any compound number, when reduced to a single digit, is its basic or root number. Every birthday can be reduced to two root numbers. The first root number for your birthday is the day of the month on which you were born, reduced to a single digit. The second root number for your birthday is the day of the month added to the number of the month and then reduced to a single digit. If your birthday is on the twenty-eighth day of any month, you simply add the two digits together: 2 + 8 =10. Then you reduce the result further, until you arrive at a single digit: 1 + 0 = 1. The first root number for the twenty-eighth day of any month is 1. If your birthday is on the twenty-eighth of March, your first root number is 1. To find the second root number, you add the first number to the number of the month. The twenty-eighth of March is 1 + 3 = 4. Therefore, the numbers for the twenty-eighth of March are 1 and 4. *In addition to the meaning of its root number, each of the numbers from 1 to 31 also has its own individual vibrations. These provide additional, albeit subtle, differences that distinguish that number from others of the same root. Reading Your Root Numbers Number 1: Individuality One is the number of beginnings, individuality, and independence. Ones are the forthright leaders, pioneers, and fearless adventurers of the society. Your dynamic, self-reliant personality prompts you to assume a leading role in all your endeavors. Full of initiative, you’re driven by your ideals and convictions. Personal inspiration is the key to your motivation. You express yourself through your own originality and creativity. Number 2: Duality Two is the number of duality, cooperation, and diplomacy. Twos are the partners and peacemakers of the society. Your sociable, courteous nature brings balance and harmony to all your interactions. You think in pairs and actually prefer sharing authority and responsibility to going it alone. Companionship is your top priority and union your ultimate goal. Your forte is the ability to compromise and bring opposing forces together. Tact and a decided knack for smoothing ruffled feathers are the primary tools in your diplomatic arsenal. Number 3: Exuberance Three is the number of self-expression, enthusiasm, optimism, and sociability. Threes are the friendly, witty charmers of the society. You are a born entertainer with a cheerful, easygoing manner and gift for gab that endears you to all kinds of people. Three is the number of good fortune. Some threes are so lucky they seem to be under the protection of a guardian angel. Even your difficulties usually have a way of working out for the best. Number 4: Stability Fours are the workers and builders of the society. Your strength lies in knowing the best way to get a project up and running and keep it functioning properly. Your vitality, sense of purpose, and willpower keep you going long after others have run out of steam. Loyal to employers and fair to employees, you make an excellent boss or manager. You are driven by ambition and the desire to succeed, and there is virtually nothing you can’t do once you put your mind to it. Number 5: Freedom The five individual is a freewheeling adventurer who adapts readily to any situation. Yours is an inquiring mind with a deep-seated need to know why things are the way they are. You have a genial personality, are a good mixer, and make friends easily. Because of your characteristic sociability, you rarely feel down or depressed. Fives are generally lucky and able to bounce back from any difficulty. Your knack for coping with the unexpected gives you the confidence to try new things that are unusual and exciting. Number 6: Harmony The six individual is self-expressive, creative, imaginative, artistic, and musical. You strive for peace and harmony and are happiest when life runs smoothly with a minimum of stress and discord. Essentially an idealist, you’re the original Good Samaritan. You refuse to give up on people and have helped many a grateful friend stave off disaster. However, your concern for people can be taken too far, and sixes are sometimes accused of meddling in the affairs of others. Number 7: Wisdom The typical number seven individual is a truth-seeking intellectual with a decided knack for sizing up any situation in the blink of an eye. You have a deep reservoir of wisdom, a vivid imagination, and possibly clairvoyant or psychic abilities. Your insight and intuition work hand in hand with your analytical mind to tie data together. Musical, poetic, and artistic ability is quite common among those with this vibration, and you could be skilled in handicrafts, writing, dancing, or painting. Other people may regard you as a genuine mystery, because your somewhat solitary nature is much given to private contemplation. Number 8: Authority Eight represents power and authority in the material world. It is the number of leadership, business acumen, tenacity, and hard work. You possess sound business judgment, marked executive ability, and a knack for commanding the respect and cooperation of others. Inherently industrious, patient, and persevering, you don’t expect opportunity to be handed to you on a silver platter. Consequently, most of your rewards in life stem from accomplishments achieved through your own efforts. Number 9: Compassion Nine is the number of universal receptivity and heightened awareness. There’s an aura of prophetic wisdom about you. You possess an extremely perceptive mind, with intuitive powers bordering on the psychic. The touchstones of your existence are humanitarianism and compassion, and you have a tremendous capacity for tolerance and spiritual achievement. You understand the human condition, and in your work with others you are selfless and courageous.
