Fate Number 4
The forces of the intellect are found here. Those with fate number
(4) will find that logic plays a dominant role during the first part of
their lives. This logical element of their fate will make them capable
of living in the world but, if they are not careful, they become so much
a part of the world that they let the world become a part of themselves.
This involves a risk of shipwreck, as when water enters the ship's hull.
Aspects of the material world (space and time) are combined so that those
having (4) as a fate number are capable of performing work involving concrete
thinking. Those having a strong (4) as a fate number are dedicated
to their work. This work should be seen as a life task and not something
for which a reward is required. It should be sufficient reward that
such individuals are allowed to perform the task. Those having (4)
as a fate number encounter difficult tasks that require careful thought
in all spheres of life. It does not matter whether they have incarnated
as peasants or kings: it is a question of work and of having pure thoughts,
therefore their expectations of a reward should be small. Service
to humankind is the key to an understanding of such a fate. Those
having (4) as their fate number should not demand any greatfulness from
those they work for, but rather be grateful for being allowed to work.
