Astro-Numerology - Lesson 4

Astro-Numerology, the  perfect  synthesis between Astrology and
Numerology deals with the correspondence between the nine revolving heavens & the
nine numbers. It  also  deals with the effect of many Numbers- the  Fadic
Number, the Name Number and the Birth Number  and  the  combined  Fadic,  Name
and Birth Numbers.The Pythagorean Law of Vibration states that each
number has a particular vibration.

Four - ruled by the Ascending Node or the North Node of the Moon, Rahu

In Astronomy, the two mathematical points where the orbits  of the Moon
and the Sun intersect are called Ascending Node ( North Node ) &
Descending Node ( South Node), Rahu & Ketu.( The orbits of the Sun &
the Moon differ by 8 degrees ). They are not actual planets but are
shadowy planets. They are important determinants of behaviour. In Sidereal
Astrology great importance is attached to the Nodal Axis which becomes the pivot
of the horoscope. In Mythology ( which is allegorical and symbolic ), Rahu
& Ketu are characterised as demons as both these shadowy planets are
natural malefics. Rahu resembles Saturn & Ketu, Mars.

Four is not considered to be a very lucky number as it is ruled by a

Effects of Fadic Number Four

If the Fourian is YOU!

( Fadic Number is the number got after adding all the digits comprising
your date of birth ).

Your Numerological Number is 4 ruled by the Moon's Ascending  Node,
Rahu.The character of the Fourians is unique & known only to themselves.

They view all things from a totally different angle as opposed to the
ordinary people who  view  everything  from a common angle. In every
argument they  argue from the opposite side and because of this tendency
they  gain a lot  of secret enemies. They hate all laws and  legal
frameworks & destroy all such laws. They oppose the rulers & always
establish their own kingdoms and republics. They  always  believe in the
freedom of expression & opinion. They  are  the people who are born on 4
13  22 & 31 and  in between the lunar month of June 21 & July 21. They
do not  make friends easily. People with numbers 1  2  7 & 8 attract  them.

The  Fourians do not succeed in the realm of  material  prosperity  like
the others. If they save money or  make money the way they use it will
surprise everybody. >From June 21 to July 21 and  July  22  to  the  end
of August  is  the  best time  for the fructification of their efforts.

Their lucky days are Saturday  Sunday  Monday . If these days  coincide
with the   4   13   22   31   1  2 7 10 11 16 19 20 25 28 29 these days
will be the most auspicious.

Their  main  drawbacks are that they are loners separated  from  this
world and  because of that desperation and silence  will result.

Personality Overview

Controller of Life   -   Moon's Ascending Node

You  are  controlled  by the Moon's Ascending Node, Rahu. Those under
the  influence  of Rahu are always aggressive in outlook and  come  up
financially. They do not hesitate to employ means that  are  not  above
board  to achieve their objectives. Their business  insight  &
foresight always pay rich dividends.They are  very  pragmatic  in  outlook  and
are  more practical than theoretical.

You  are  subjected  to fits of elation and dejection. Ambiguity always
upsets you.

In  money  matters  also, ups and downs are indicated.  You have
tremendous   entreprenauership  or   risk-taking  ability   which is
needed in business.

Rahu  is  a  planet  which  can give crores and success in speculation
& gambling are indicated.

Since  you  are  frank  and outspoken many secret enemies are ge-
nerated. Your  ability  to  argue  logically  will  confound most
people. You  will  be  a  controversial  figure  because you love to destroy
darkness, prejudice and ignorance.

Never  moving  away  from  the path you have chosen with a fanatical
zeal  you always push your way to your chosen aim.

In Vedic Astrology, if properly posited, Rahu is the bestower of Wealth.

He is also known as the Mokshakaraka. He is the planet of gambling,
speculation & hoarding and if powerfully posited in one's natal chart
can give immense wealth. The wealth so attained may not be made through
legal means. Monetary  windfall  due  to  lottery,  stock-exchange   and

jackpot is attributed to Rahu. He rules over three  constellations of
the Sidereal Zodiac - Alpha Orionis( Aridra), Alpha Bootis (Swati) & Lamda
Aquari (Satabhisha).

An Analytical Review

The  zodiacal  sign  representing  this number is Aquarius. (Do not
confuse  this  with  the birth sign in Astrology ).  Those ruled  by
this sign  are always lovers of the human race. But they will never get back
what they give.

They  are  often  misunderstood . They are always sufferers  al ways
plagued  by  one problem or the other. Even if they achieve  success
they  have  to  pay a heavy price for it. "Success  exacts a heavy
price" is true of them.

Aquarians  are  generally  isolated people. They are loners  wanting
to  move  away  from this madding crowd. They always feel that justice is denied to them.

In  Astrology  Aquarius  is  the only sign not okayed by the Masters.
But despite this it has many plus points.

Great  patience  and  perseverance  are  exhibited by the people born
under  the  influence  of this number. Stoicism  fortitude and
indifference are the virtues accruing from it.

Regarding  health   these  people always are subjected to unknown
diseases. They are also subjected to thoughts of melancholy.  Anaemia
mental  tension  backache  headache and eye troubles  are  common.
Fruits  and medicinal leaves best suited for them  are  spinach  and
ocimum sanctum( sweet basil). They gain a  lot  due  to electric therapy

and hypnotism. They should renounce  high  cholesterol  containing
stuffs like meat and eggs. They  should  guard  against diseases during
the months of January  Febraury  August   July  &  September. They may
experience changes  in  health  during  the ages of 13  22  31  40  49
58 and 67.

Negative Aspect

You may be prone to anger as Rahu is an incendiary planet. Anger is
said to be man's greatest enemy. If you destroy anger, you become
the " Self-Actualising Person of Abraham Maslow living in the widest
possible frame of reference."


Ardhakayam Mahaveeram
Chandradithya Vimardhanam
Simhika Garbha Sambhootam
Tham Rahum pranamamyaham

This mantra  if recited 108 times daily can confer longevity and
fortune. This is the moola Sloka of Rahu.

In Astro-Gemmology, Rahu  represents Hessonite. Wearing this stone
on a Shukla Paksha Saturday ( fifteen days after the New Moon ) will
enhance the luck of the Fourians. The Sanskrit text, The Jataka Chandrika
assigns Hessonite to Rahu .

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Four is considered very sacred.
Transcendental  Consciousness  is  known  as  the  Fourth  or  Tureeya.
Transcending  the  three  relative states of Consciousness - the waking,

the dreaming  and the  dreamless  sleep - is the Divine Transcendental
Consciousness which can be experienced via Yoga. In Yogic Psychology
the fourth element of the Mind is the Superconscious Mind ( the other
three being Conscious, Subconscious and Unconscious). The Superconscious
is the foundation of the Mind and not the Subconscious  as believed by
modern psychologists.

The Indian sages talked about the Fourfold Veds. Yogas are Four!

In Western Astrology The Fourth House is the IC , the Imum Coeli, an
important house. This, they say, is the source of the Subconscious

Mythologic Story

One powerful demon drank the nectar of Immortality. This was reported
by the Sun and the Moon to Lord Vishnu. He used the divine discus and
cut the demon into two. The head of the demon became Rahu and the
tail  Ketu  known  as  Caput  Draconis  and  Cauda Draconis in Latin.
Astronomical symbology has it that Vishnu is the orbit of the earth
known as the Ecliptic and the demons the North & South Nodes of the Moon.
In his book the "Wisdom of the Ancients ", Bacon opined that scientific
truths are contained in myths!

In the next article we will deal with the Fivians - who are ruled by the

Number Five and by Mercury, the intellectual planet known as Hermes
in Grecian Mythology and Budha in Indian Mythology.
