Alden Beaman: Astrology and Numerology 6

The Number Four:

This correlates to the Planet Saturn, the sign of Capricorn, the color of brown, the tenth house, the Goat, and The letters D, M & V. -- MATHEMATICAL-LOGICAL

The Number Four - The Rules and Organization Number.

Listen to the word rules. It sounds a little bossy doesn’t it? It reminds you of your parents or the police or the establishment. Maybe even the Ten Commandments. Four is a foundation number. It helps us build. It is synonymous with obedience. We don’t always like this number because it makes us feel fenced in. We want our freedom, but deep down we know that we need it. If there were no rules there would only be chaos and anarchy. When we are put in a position of responsibility we learn to value the obedience of others and their desire to listen to us. It is quite hard to manage when everyone wants to do their own thing and go their own way. A house divided against itself cannot stand. The number 4 corresponds to justice and hardship. That is why it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. It is also the number of exaltation. Christ and Moses both fasted for 40 days. Moses then talked to God or Jehovah face to face and Christ prepared for his earthly ministry.

A concept that is not understood by most teenagers and some adults is the saying, Freedom with Responsibility. Many times we feel that rules hold us back or limit our freedom. In reality they are there to allow us more freedom. Imagine for a minute the shape of a funnel. It is wide on the top and tapers into a narrow area near the bottom. Having no rules is a lot like this. We usually feel great with all the freedom we receive when there are no rules. However sooner or later through the law of cause and effect our wrong choices limit us. After a while we feel limited or squeezed in. Our options are gone. Now turn this funnel upside down. The top of it is narrow and the bottom is wide. In the beginning rules feel confining; we feel limited, but overtime our obedience to these rules help us make the right choices. As a result the law of cause and effect then gives us more options and hence more freedom and space. This is what Christ meant when he said [Mat 7:14] “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Think about our own society and the rules of education. The person who goes on to college may feel that his or her freedom is limited and that studying is boring. However over time the person who receives an education is given more choices through the type of jobs that are now available to him or her. The person who did not get an education or learn on their own has few options. Most of the work consists of manual labor and the pay is not as good.

As a four you are a manager and you are very methodical and organized. You are aware of the benefits of structure and you are the type who can turn your dreams into reality. You are quick to make decisions and will stick with them. You like a plan or a map and you dislike a job that has no procedures or any rules to follow. At work you tend to be a work-aholic and you do not understand how people can be late to appointments or why they are not as productive as you are. To you work is like breathing. You feel invigorated by it. You may even have a hard time relaxing and taking things easy. At an early age you acted more mature than you really were and you may have enjoyed talking to adults. Now as a grown up you take your family and your obligations seriously. You like to be responsible and reliable. Others can always count on you. You are quite conventional and distrust all the new fads and the unstable new ideas that have not been proven to work yet. You dislike sudden disruptions or changes that occur with no warning. You need to surround yourself with people who have strong imaginations and those that can take educated chances. You like the old morality and you value honesty and integrity. You may have been called a square but you let it go knowing that the person who said this doesn’t live by all the rules you do. You know why you act the way you do and over your lifetime you have developed certain likes and dislikes. Try not to be too stubborn or act too ridged or people will label you a stuffed shirt. You like to save money and you are good at managing it. You probably earn it slowly but steadily over time. You enjoy being a parent and raising children who are an honor to the community. You can be very nurturing and kind to children as well, but you do tend to love in a disciplined manor.

The positive four - foundation, order, steady growth, maturity, responsible, justice, prepared and focused.

The negative four - bossy, dictator, forceful, Unadventurous, uncreative, imitating and weakness.

The Planet Saturn - An Earth Planet.

Saturn is dignified in Capricorn. It has its detriment in Cancer. It is exalted in Libra and it has its fall in Aries. To start off with Saturn is the planet of father time and limitations. It is fitting to note that Saturn (time is exalted in Libra the first sign of others.) This teaches us that in order to be mature we need to focus our time on others and not on just ourselves. Saturn has its detriment in Aries and Aries is the sign of the self. It is the “I am” sign. In deciding which planet ruled a sign or was dignified in a sign I started with a clean slate. I then tried to match Numerology and Psychology with Astrology. I also used Psychology and Astrology to fix some areas of Numerology. This web site is the evolution of that attempt. Before the outer planets were discovered Saturn was the end of the line. It got a bad reputation as the great malefic planet. It was bad luck and the grim reaper of death. Saturn is really not that bad of a planet. It is similar to the number four. Four is where the work is. Many Numerology books attempt to assign the planets numbers. In my opinion they do this wrong, hence the reason for this web site. In these books the planet Saturn is often given the value of eight. Eight corresponds to power authority and money. Because Saturn shows authority and management, responsibility etc, I can see how it can be misnumbered. However if a person knows the true essence of Saturn is limitation or exaltation after proving the self, it becomes obvious that this is not a good fit. Venus, which represents money and assets better, matches the number 8 and is the natural ruler of the sign of Taurus. Hence Taurus is the sign that best describes the number 8. Saturn, which corresponds to the month of January, is the start of the winter season. At such a time a person is most prone to scarcity. In order to survive that person must prepare in advance. It is not a time of warmth as the month of May is. I also associate Venus to preferring to take things easy. If a person has plenty of money as the number eight entails then he or she can take things easy. Saturn or the number four corresponds to hard work. Therefore four is associated to Saturn and eight to Venus. The words adversity hardship and limitation all apply to Saturn.

In Astrology the house where Saturn is found represents the area of life where one encounters limitation and hardship. It serves as a warning. The sign that the planet Saturn is in shows a person how to overcome that warning or possible weakness. Always remember that house shows the place or area of life [ENVIRONMENT]. The sign is connected to how an event acts [PARADIGM]. It is similar to an adverb or adjective in language. The planet always shows the energy being used [INTELLIGENCE, ENNEAD MENTATION; NUMERIC TRIGGER]. Comparing these areas to a play, the planets are the different actors and actresses, the signs are the lines or words said and the houses are the settings, the environment, the stage or the props used. If you remember this you will never go wrong when you read a chart. With people the interpretation can be harder so the rule of three should be used. I find that the house that contains the Sun or Moon or Mars may be more like the persons nature. Sun in the 10th house would be more like a Capricorn than a person who has Sun in the sign of Capricorn. Use what works, as there are no exact rules when it comes to people and personality. Saturn is also synonymous with cement or glue. Saturn means perseverance, tenacity and discipline.

It is important to understand that Saturn can be your friend if you work at it. It represents the law of the harvest. It is important to work with the Saturn energy in your chart. Not working with this planet will only cause delay and frustration in your life. We need to work through our Saturn issues in order for us to be able to accomplish our missions in life. This is found through the life path number. Remember Saturn is our warning planet, it shows the areas that we need to work on. If we do not work on this weakness it can cause trouble over time especially if transiting Uranus or Pluto go into this same house years latter. With Uranus we get an unwelcome surprise or shake up. With Pluto we can have it all come to a head or end. Transiting Saturn is like a thorn in our side. Transiting Pluto is like a knife in our side. Saturn is the planet that makes things real or materializes them in our life. To find out when you are ready to get married or engaged. Look for when transiting Saturn makes soft aspects (trine or sextile) to the ruler of your seventh house. Keep in mind you must be the proper age not 6 or 75 or so. Use common sense. This doesn’t mean you will not get married at any other time but these are the best times when you are most ready to make a commitment.

Just like the planet Saturn or the sign of Capricorn brings structure, the life path number structures many events or the timing in a person’s life. That is the reason why it is essential to calculate it correctly. Otherwise all the pinnacles and challenge numbers will be off. Worse you may be trying to pattern your life according to wrong numbers. There is merit in structuring your life and that is why people who use Numerology and the timing swear by it. They may say this is a 1-year for me. Or this is a 1-day. Unfortunately they have the wrong numbers. Anytime you organize your life and follow a pattern you will reap the rewards of organization. But I believe that to get the most out of the Numerology timing, a person needs to follow the correct Pinnacles and Challenge numbers and corresponding dates along with the correct Life Path Number as this number indicates our mission in life.

The Sign of Capricorn

Most traditional Astrology books give good definitions of the sign of Capricorn. It is most like the number four.

The Mazzaroth and the sign of Capricorn represent a goat with a fishes tail. I believe it shows Christ being crucified as the goat. This goat has a fishes tail. This represents the resurrection of the dead. Death or Saturn cannot hold Christ. The fish is the sign of Pisces and religion. Pisces also designates the infinite and eternal life that has no limits. Death has its fall in Eternal Life and the resurrection.

There is a misunderstanding among Christians about the meaning of the resurrection. I know it means we will come back to life with our own perfect bodies. It is not a spiritual body but a perfected physical one. Our spirit body will live inside the physical body. When Christ died his spiritual body left his dead physical body and he entered into the world of spirits. There he organized and taught the righteous spirits that the time had come for all spirits to be given the opportunity to hear the gospel message. The mission to the spirits in prison had begun. The door was open to all people to accept the gospel. We read about this in 1 Peter 3:18-20 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit; in which he went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water. On Sunday Morning Christ’s spirit entered back into his dead body and a wonderful thing happened. Somehow it came back to life. Christ was the only person who held the powers of the resurrection besides his father Elohim. He was the first fruit’s of them that slept. Christians celebrate this event as Easter morning. The gift of the resurrection will be to all people whether or not they are good or evil. The gift of Eternal Life will be given only to those who follow Christ. It should be pointed out however that all people would be given the opportunity to hear about and to follow Christ. If they do not hear about him in this life they will hear about him in the world of spirits. Those that follow him will be able to live with him as families in the next life. That is the true meaning of the word Eternal Life. It really means Eternal Lives. Those who accept Christ can become like Christ and will be given the opportunity to be Gods in the Eternities. They will be able to bring new life (eternal lives) into existence. This Glory of Godhood is call Celestial Glory and is available to those receiving a celestial body in the resurrection.

There are two other glories in the next life, Terrestrial and Telestial. There are three glories in Heaven. Remember three is the witness and creation number. The apostle Paul wrote about these three glories in 1 Corinthians 15: 38-42 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. For not all flesh is alike, but there is one kind for men, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. There are celestial bodies and there are terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory. So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable. Let’s use the knowledge about the planets and the numbers to understand Heaven better. The Celestial represents the sun. The terrestrial represents the moon. The telestial represents the stars. The sun is dignified in the sign Leo. Leo represents joy, love, children romance, creation, nobility etc. Purple is its color. Those who try to be like Christ and make a conscious effort to be better will be given this glory. This will be the ability to live as families with God in Heaven. God the Father rules this Kingdom. The Terrestrial is compared to the moon. The moon represents the number two. The number two supports, it is not the leader. Those in the Terrestrial Kingdom will support those in the Celestial. They will reflect the goodness of the Celestial just like the moon reflects the light of the sun. These people are the good people of the earth. They keep the 10 commandments but they are not valiant in the testimony of Christ. Other things take precedence. Christ will rule over this Kingdom. They will see Christ but they will not live as families. They will be appointed angels to serve the Gods.

The last kingdom of Heaven is the telestial. It is the lowest in glory. This is the kingdom for people who do not keep the 10 commandments. As one star differs in glory so do the people who live in this kingdom. The Holy Ghost rules over this kingdom. The three Gods in the Godhead are Heavenly Father, Christ and the Holy Ghost. They are three separate and distinct persons. Just as the number three indicates. They all bear witness of each other. Hell or being under Satan’s control is only for a certain time period. After the people have been let out they will inhabit a degree of heaven. This is what is meant by Christ having overcome death and hell. The message of the gospel is that those who follow Christ and make a conscious effort to improve. (The Sun represents the conscious mind) will not have to suffer for their sins in hell. That is what Christ did for us through the atonement and on the cross. He suffered for us. The people who do not repent will have to suffer for a time. This suffering is remorse of conscious. The damnation that accompanies this is not being able to be like God. We should all want to improve ourselves. I believe this was taught so strongly by Noah and his sons that the concept has stayed alive in all the new age beliefs and religions of the Far East. The Egyptians had this knowledge. That is why the spirit is weighed against a feather. If it weighs less than a feather than it is allowed to cross over the river of death. It can only weigh less than a feather through the atonement of Christ. The ancient civilizations in America worshiped a god named Quetzequatal. The great feathered serpent. That is why Indian chiefs wore feathers in their hair. After his resurrection Christ visited the people in Central and South America. They described him as the great white God with a beard. He promised to return to them. When the Spanish came these native people thought it was the return of Quetzequatal. That is why they put up no resistance until it was too late. (One last concept about the sign of Capricorn.) The sign of Capricorn rules over the knees and the skeleton and the skin. By kneeling and praying to God the Father we show our humility and our acceptance of him as our father. The victory of obtaining eternal life is gained each day on our knees as we communicate with God. In Matthew 23: 12 we read. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

The Color brown

Brown is a color that contains all of the three primary colors. It has the red of the number 1, the blue of the number 8 and the yellow of the number 7. Brown is the color of Capricorn or of the highest point. Our sun reaches this point in the heavens around noontime of each day. (Northern Hemisphere) Remember the Sun represents the Celestial Kingdom. Saturn is the teaching planet. Saturn is dignified in the sign of Capricorn. It shows us that through persistent effort to improve ourselves we can be exalted. The color brown teaches the same thing. The color of red is connected to Aries. We must have a cause or a crusade. That crusade is Christ. Remember Christ is “I am.” The color yellow is associated with the number 7 or the signs of (Gemini and Virgo) We have to read the word (Gemini) of God and then do the will of God on a daily basis and we need to improve ourselves on a daily basis (Virgo). In addition to this we need to be dependable (Taurus.) the number 8. These three primary colors make up the color of brown. Capricorn or Exaltation. The sun is highest in the sky in Capricorn. The sun is the planet that best describes heaven or the celestial kingdom. The sign Capricorn best describes the concept of being exalted and maturity.

The 10th house

The tenth house is a house of power. However unlike the fourth, which shows our personal power, it shows the power given to us by society. It is our place in society and represents our highest achievements or failures and disappointments. As such it is the house of reputation or our standing in the community. If we succeed it represents our honors. If we fail it shows what we need to learn in order to be successful on our next attempt. Traditional Astrology says this shows a person’s choice of career or what they do for a living. The sign on its cusp shows the type of work the person wants to do. A person with Leo on the cusp may work in a creative field. If this person has Cancer on the cusp they may work in a restaurant. Cancer nurtures and one way we nurture ourselves is through eating. I personally use this in helping college age people pick a career. I have found through experience that any planet connected to the 10th house will express itself in the career. This is the natural house of Saturn. Saturn corresponds to authority. These energies will get stronger with age. Around the age of 28-30 a person will have completed a full Saturn return. (It takes 28-30 years for Saturn to return to the same sign and place in the sky that it was in when a person was born.) The Sun takes one year, hence the saying many happy returns. This is an old saying in celebration of a person’s birthday. Any planet close to the 10th house, 11th house or 9th house is known to be a planet in high focus. The energies described by this planet will be noticeable early in the person’s nature or character. To include Numerology don’t forget the person’s birthday. I believe a person needs to take up a career in area’s where he or she is strong. Astrology and Numerology can be helpful tools in helping people find their strengths but only if used correctly.

The Goat

In ancient Israel the Lord instructed Moses how the priests were to offer up burnt offerings to Jehovah.

Lev 9: 3 And say to the people of Israel, `Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old without blemish, for a burnt offering, Again the goat shows the sin offering. The Mazzaroth show the animal of the goat to represent the Universal sin offering for mankind by Jesus Christ. Look at the following scripture to see how the priests take the sins of the congregation upon them. Lev 10:16-17.

Now Moses diligently inquired about the goat of the sin offering, and behold, it was burned! And he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron who were left, saying, "Why have you not eaten the sin offering in the place of the sanctuary, since it is a thing most holy and has been given to you that you may bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD? Another scripture that shows two goats is found in Lev 16:18-22. From this passage comes the word scapegoat. (Someone who takes the blame for something.) Then he shall go out to the altar which is before the LORD and make atonement for it, and shall take some of the blood of the bull and of the blood of the goat, and put it on the horns of the altar round about And he shall sprinkle some of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it and hallow it from the uncleanleness of the people of Israel. "And when he has made an end of atoning for the holy place and the tent of meeting and the altar, he shall present the live goat; and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins; and he shall put them upon the head of the goat, and send him away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who is in readiness. The goat shall bear all their iniquities upon him to a solitary land; and he shall let the goat go in the wilderness. Here we see the atonement of Christ symbolized in the story. The first goat shows Christ dying. The second goat shows how Christ will bear the sins of all the people. Notice the sprinkling of the blood, the color of red and Aries. It is sprinkled on the horns (shows power) of the alter seven times. (The number of perfection). Paul in a letter to the Hebrews explains how Christ represents the goat and sacrificed animals of ancient Israel. Heb 9: 12 he entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.

For more information on goats as animals see the description given under the number one.

The Letters D, M and V

The letters D, M or V will have a lot of number four characteristics.

These characteristics are similar to the actual goat animal as well as the Capricorn sun sign or the number 4. If you skipped ahead please read the description of A, J & S in the number 1, to understand how to use the letters in the alphabet.
