Putting It Together
The energy in your birthday (or anyone else's) has many determinants. In this book we're using the combination of astrology and numerology to highlight the old axiom “as above, so below.” Because this book isn't limited to any one year, there aren't the specifics here that one would get from a full astrological chart. Nonetheless, it's a place to start. Think of this as a digest version of each day, and each person born on that day. Other aspects of a chart, and personal life experiences, will impact that digest in some manner, but the groundwork is here — like a cornerstone on which to build and a mirror on which to reflect.
While a book of this nature could certainly share only the “good stuff” each day represents, that wouldn't be fair or ethical. Just like with “as above, so below” there is also good and bad, darkness and light, sounds and silences. Life is a unique blend of all these things, a dance, if you will, between what was, what is, and what may be. By taking into account both negative and positive, a person learns to work with their dark side and make it better, while letting the light side shine brightly.
In the Tarot, the Magician Card — a card that represents control over one's destiny — shows the Magician pointing upward with one hand, and downward with another. This is a reminder that each successful person's path relies on balance, and on seeing the possibilities and potentials both above our heads and below our feet. Birthday person-ology celebrates those potentials in an honest, balanced way.
