Fate Number 2
To those with (2) as their fate number the most important aspect is to
be aware of the need to love themselves. They are busy investigating
areas related to feelings, emotions, ambivalence and duality. Their
task is to learn to see through duality. The emotional aspects of
life play an important role and people with (2) as a fate number have strong
feelings for everything in life: home, roots, emotional relationships to
others in general (but not partnerships as such, which is central to those
having (2) as their fate number). The main problem for those having
(2) as a fate number is that changes of mood are built into their fate.
Their awareness of opposites increases throughout their lives: for example
good and bad, right and wrong, and black and white. They are exposed
to events which increase their understanding of the riddle of duality.
What is apparently self contradictory is seen as a paradoxical truth: duality
is the core to an understanding of material reality which is limited by
time. Control of the mind is the key to a successful fate based on
the number (2). The primitive mind must be controlled so that the
individual can learn to let go. A monkey can be caught by hiding
a morsel of food in a container with an opening large enough for the monkey
to insert its hand. Once the monkey holds the tidbit in its hand,
it cannot remove it from the container. Nor will the monkey let go
of the morsel - even at the cost of its life. The monkey gets caught,
as are those with a fate number (2) if they have not learned to relax.
Such people notice the ups and downs of life: happiness is followed by
unhappiness, which is in turn followed by happiness. Bliss is not
achieved until the ability to see through the duality of happiness and
unhappiness has been obtained, so that duality may be rejected.
