Number 4

Definition of Number 4

Look around you, at the items in your everyday life. Your desk has 4 legs. Your car has 4 wheels. Your cellphone has 4 corners. This is the epitome of the number 4. It represents stability, reliability, and purpose. Its energy is grounded, secure, dependable. If a leg came off your desk, so that it only had 3 legs, it would be unbalanced. It's the same in numerology. 

Because of the way that 4 is a workhorse, it's not particularly frivolous or charismatic. 4 won't win any popularity contests, but it might win a medal for being a workaholic. It gets ahead not by charm or enticement, but by sheer determination and purpose. It's focused, often blunt or dour, but it gets the job done. There's no fuss, no frills with 4; just plain old responsibility and dedication. 

4 needs to feel in control of things, simply because of it's conscientious nature. When it feels that things are rocky, out of its control, or that it's being overlooked, stress and anxiety start to take hold. 4 likes to adhere to the status quo, and doesn't take to change very easily. Abrupt changes make it feel like a fish out of water, and its coping mechanism is to lash out and dig in its heels with a loud, "But we've always done it this way!"

Wherever 4 lands in your numerology reading-and in other numerical sequences in your life, too-4 shows you where you need to work hard to reap high rewards. It reveals where you've got natural leadership skills, where you need to be less frivolous and more dedicated, and where you need to learn to develop patience and tolerance in order to reach your full potential. As rooted and grounded as 4 is, it also indicates where you need to gracefully open yourself to change, rather than being too set in your ways.

TERM OF THE DAY

Sun Sign

Your Sun sign is the sign of the zodiac where the Sun was at the time you were born. In astrology, it makes up one-third of your primal triad. In your natal chart, the Sun represents your personality and countenance. This is why more importance is placed on it than on the other planets and features, and why your daily horoscope is written for your Sun sign. There are 12 signs of the zodiac, each one with its own attributes and qualities. Since the Sun is in a particular sign when you were born, your personality will reflect many of that sign's traits.
