Relationships and Compatibility
The day of the month when one is born determines the group. Your day of birth, the 16th, is important because it indicates the path you should follow during the active period of life and determines your group and indicates the environments necessary for the development of your individual purpose in life.
All people belong to one of three basic groups: water (practical), fire (social) or air (inspirational). A practical simile of these three phases or groups of spiritual growth can be seen in the three elements of life: water, the basic principle of matter; fire, the force of purification or transmutation; and air, the inspirational realm.
|Group||Day of Birth|
|Water||1, 5, 7, 10, 14, 16,19, 23, 25, 28|
|Fire||2, 4, 8, 11, 13, 17,20, 22, 26, 29, 31|
|Air||3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18,21, 24, 27, 30|
You are in the water group.
The water group expresses in a matter-of-fact, direct, independent way, and is responsible for establishing the practical understanding of life. Water group members learn through their own efforts in self-education and self-discipline to become leaders sharing with others the benefit of their experiences. They are self-sufficient and creative but have to guard against being self-centred. Those in the water group appreciate the outdoors and find harmony and peace in nature.
In business associations, friendships, and marriage, you will find the most congeniality with those who are also in the water group. Members of the water group work best on their own; they are tenacious and work hard to accomplish their goals. Because of their extreme independence and individuality, and their self-focused approach to life, they are inclined to disregard advice and overlook the sensitivities of others. They like to do things their own way. They are not as verbally expressive as people in the fire and air groups.
The Other Two Groups Express in Specific Ways
The fire group has the lesson of responsibility, the lesson of association, working for and with others, coinciding viewpoints and educating and organizing others. Those in the fire group often learn through the fire of experience until they base their decisions on definite principles and are not swayed by others. They are not highly inspirational, as they seek proof through fact and logic.
The air group is here to contribute through self-expression and creative, artistic achievement. Air group members have the potential to develop universal understanding to lead the minds of others into progressive, constructive channels of thought and creativity. Being idealistic and inspirational, they should express affection and generosity. Since they feel deeply about the welfare of humanity, they can be over-emotional, temperamental, and unrealistic if not living the higher side of their nature.
Merging with the Other Groups
Those in the water group find it easier to merge with those in the fire group than with those in the air group. It is important to fire group members to blend and to get along with others; they find it easier than do people in the water and air groups to set aside their own opinions and desires to avoid issues and to create harmony. Fire group members do not tend to interfere with the independence of those in the water group. Therefore, without clear understanding of the reasons that create the differences, friction may result in close association.
People born into the same group can experience a natural kinship, especially if their names have relative mathematical qualities. They tend to observe life from a similar perspective, think and feel in a similar way, and enjoy similar activities. However, discord in the name can distort the natural compatibility of people in the same group.
Therefore, if you are married to or associating with someone born into a different group, an opportunity awaits you to gain an understanding of life from another perspective. Being in different groups need not spoil long-term happiness, especially when each person strives to appreciate and understand the viewpoints and the challenges that face the other person. As you can appreciate, there are many factors to consider in creating close compatibility. Creating co-operation and understanding between people is one of life's many challenges, yet necessary in generating harmony and fulfilment.
An understanding of the groups is important because it allows you to appreciate others perspectives on life.
Whether your water group qualities have a natural expression depend upon the names you use, for your names create your personality and destiny. Your names are the predominant determining factor in measuring your degree of happiness and success.
