Since we are about to celebrate America’s birthday this month, I thought I would mention the importance of America’s day of birth and how it shapes her personality. The day we are born (from 1 to 31) reveals specific abilities and talents we possess. It is considered in numerology to be one our 5 core numbers (the life path, destiny, soul, personality and talent). The day we are born is a gift that will help us on our way of living the life we were born to live.
With America being born on a 4 day (July 4, 1776), she came into this world as a hard working and conscientious country. Four is the number of work, discipline, principle, responsibility, pride, compassion for people and perseverance in the face of adversity. It is consider the rock but stubborn as well. There is a focus on the foundations of life and taking care of the basics. This focus on the foundation can apply to the family, business or career. She likes to work and her work ethic has brought her wealth, freedom and security. Americans are extremely productive and value their freedom and their work. (President Obama is also born on a 4 day). Those who come here to find freedom many times find themselves working more than one job just to keep it. We accept only a few weeks of vacation time a year and when on vacation, many of us stay connected to our work.
It is a very challenging time for America. She who prides herself in work finds that the opportunities open to working have changed. No longer is the manufacturing base in America. No longer is employment secure. Artificial intelligence and robots are replacing American and world workers and will continue to do so. Fortunately for America, she has a number 5 life path or learning lesson. Five is the number of change and freedom. This is her most important number and allows her to change around the ship of state, reinvent herself and open up new vistas. Combining these two numbers, the hard working number 4 and the progressive number 5, she is creating new opportunities for her citizens. The transitional time we are in now requires Americans to be able to reinvent themselves both individually and collectively. This week the Supreme Court votes show that America moves the ship of state forward kicking and screaming but, remember, America is the catalyst for world change (the number 5). California is the catalyst for the United States. Watch California patterns, laws and culture to see what will be coming to the rest of the nation.
