(4, 13/4, 22/4, 31/4, 40/4)
Destiny number 4 is symbolized by the four seasons of the year as well as the four points of the compass. It is a number that is associated with structure, balance and stability.
With Number 4 as the destiny number, the individual has great potential for all kinds of managerial work. He has obvious powerful capabilities to manage big organizations. He can take big responsibilities on himself, and fulfills them with precision. He is a very practical person and finds satisfaction in organizing important events, meetings, matters which will be long lasting. This person should learn to be methodical, serious, studious, disciplined, loyal, honest and practical so that others can trust him to get things done in a proper manner. He should not be rigid, stubborn, boring, melancholy and afraid of change.
The number 4 Destiny suggests that the direction of growth in your lifetime will be toward a greater sense of order, service, and management skills. As you develop, you must adopt an approach that is more practical, down-to-earth, and thorough. You must be willing to work those long, hard hours to push a project through to completion.
A increase in your patience with detail allows you to become expert in fields such as building, engineering, and all forms of craftsmanship. You may accumulate abilities to write and teach, leaning toward the more technical and detailed. In the arts, music will likely be your choice. Artistic talents may also appear in such fields as horticulture and floral arrangement. Many skilled physicians and especially surgeons have the 4 Destiny. Indeed, you may enjoy success in any number of professions in which planning, organization, regulation, and dogged follow through are valued.
All with Destiny 4, and especially the master number 22/4, are potentially equipped to handle large scale undertakings in the material world. Often the reference to “master builder” is used in with regard to the 22/4, however, this trait is a potentiality in every 4, and does frequently occur.
The Destiny 4 produces a very moral character and you must choose your friends from those living up to your high standards. It will be difficult to hide your disappointment in those who fail to meet this ideal. You will be happiest mixing with associates and friends who are, like yourself, practical, moral, and doing good works for others.
The negative side of 4 often produces dominant and bossy individuals. If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction. All 4s and particularly the 22/4 may accentuate unorthodox methods to the point of eccentricity. This negative manifestation of the 4 Destiny can also be very dominating and overbearing. Avoid becoming too rigid, stubborn, dogmatic, and fixed in your opinions. You may have a tendency to develop and hold very strong likes and dislikes, and some of these may border on the classification of prejudice.

You are the dependable and trustworthy one. You possess exemplary traditional values which, alongside your discipline and commitment, will give you the dedication to achieve whatever it is you want out of life. You are most certainly one of the cornerstone members of society.
As a destiny number 4 you have excellent organizational skills and you possess the willpower, discipline and sheer determination to ensure perfection. You are a hard worker who leads by example, someone to look up to. You have no qualms against rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty. With hard work and discipline as your core principals you are able to create a strong, stable and secure future for both yourself and your family and this is ultimately what is important to you.
The 4 destiny means that you will spend this lifetime learning about your identity, or purpose, in this world. The work you do is likely to play a major role. This is the destiny of great accomplishment through hard work, patient attention to detail, and belief in yourself.
The 4 personality cannot stand disorder or uncertainty and, because nothing in life is certain, 4s often become frustrated by issues that other people find trivial. Until you learn to accept life’s harsher realities both mentally and emotionally, feelings of restriction or loneliness are bound to arise.
The 4 destiny creates events and circumstances which enable you to learn craftsmanship, practicality, industriousness, self-discipline, and leadership. Throughout your life, you will experience people and situations that will teach you the value of effort, tenacity, simplicity, and reliability. This can be a path of great reward and inspiration – or – it can be one of limitation and narrow-mindedness. It all depends on what you believe is available to you. So, let me tell you what really is available to you on the 4 destiny path:
When you accept the gifts that 4 offers, you will experience a wonderful feeling that everything is “clicking” and coming together exactly as it should be; a feeling that everything is in the right place, and that your timing is right on target. It is a feeling that although obstacles are bound to occur, you will be able to deal with them effectively and, often, turns them to your advantage. It is a feeling that there is no challenge you cannot handle, even though you do not seek out these challenges. It is a feeling of confidence that very few others are able to achieve. It is the knowing that you are doing the right thing at the right time that you are on the right road, and headed in the right direction. It is the feeling of succeeding in the material world while, at the same time, achieving great inner satisfaction from what you are doing. It is the feeling you get just before the success is apparent. In short, the 4 destiny offers to replace insecurity with self-assuredness.
Love is inevitable because you will learn to dispense with the limitations of guilt that many others place on relationships. When you are confident about your ability to love, you need not worry about hurting others. Neither will you allow others to hurt you. Not only does this describe the positive vibrations of the 4 energy, but it also describes the feeling of Free Will which is your real destination in this life time. Love is only love when it is free to move as it desires.
Unfortunately, very few 4s ever reach their extraordinary potential because they are cynical about it. Either they do not believe such a condition is possible, or they do not believe it can be maintained for a significant length of time. Well, it can be achieved, maintained, and enhanced to even higher levels – master levels – once you understand your own nature and recognize the choices available to you. It is never too late or too early to reach this understanding.
Some 4s use age – too old, too young – as an excuse for not doing what they want to do in life. In reality, the 4 destiny offers the opportunity for agelessness, if only you would allow yourself the experience of time standing still; the way it does when you are doing something you really love.
Yes, work, is a major aspect of your life, but if you do not love your work, then a huge chunk of love is missing from your life. This does not mean that love cannot also come from intimate relationships. But you will find that when personal relationships inhibit your ambitions, true happiness will be difficult to achieve in either area. The problem is that 4 is the number of logic and intellectual reasoning. Deep feelings are often avoided within this energy and relationships are often sought for the purpose of social and emotional security. In fact, anything which does not appear to have a “practical” purpose is often rejected from the world of a typical 4.
You may think that yours is a difficult path indeed. But it is you yourself who tends to make things difficult by wanting to do things in what you believe is the “proper” way. You also have a tendency to make the work much harder than it needs to be by obsessing over details. You may have to learn that most problems can be solved easily and that, in many cases, every single tiny detail does not have to be scrutinized and analyzed. You must learn to simplify – not magnify. Finding a balance here may be difficult for you because of your natural tendency for detail, system, and orderliness. But a balance must be reached nonetheless.
Many restrictions can be eliminated or avoided by analyzing the apparent problem and changing your reaction to it. To change one’s point of view can seem like hard work. But this “work” simply means recognizing your stubbornness, opening your mind, and accepting that alternatives do exist.. You will find that many of your limitations are the result of your own inflexible beliefs and attitudes. However, there will be some limitations in your life which appear to be immovable and unsolvable. These are the events and circumstances that life has placed in your way so that you can reach your so-called limits, and then expand them into broader horizons. We all have limits. When we reach them, we feel stopped in our tracks, boxed in, or even crushed under their weight. But, by expanding your belief in your own capabilities, you will produce an expanding energy which creates more space around you. This pushes those limits up and out and away from you so that they no longer pressurize you.
Yes, we all have limits – and it is your very destiny to live your life constantly reaching your limits and pushing them further and further away from you through your expanded belief in yourself. It is impossible to reach your limits and just “crash” through them. This would be like banging your head against a brick wall. You would be injured, killed or, at the very least, embarrassed. Accepting your capabilities and then using them is the key here. Then, your capabilities cannot help but expand too. If you deny the existence of a problem, the solution can never be found. Be honest with yourself about this. Whatever you come up against, ask yourself: “What can I learn from this situation?” “How do I want this to turn out?” Analyze your various limitations so that options become apparent to you. Visualize the outcome you want, and take the actions that will draw it to you. With effort, not struggle, you will experience the elation of BREAKTHROUGH. This will result in a life that is much happier, “lighter”, easier, healthier, more loving, and successful.
One of your natural talents is that you are very practical, even though the word “practical” means different things to different people. You are very capable of managing, and organizing. You can amaze people by taking what they see as chaos, and turning it into order, priority, and logic. You are a born organizer. You are able, and usually willing, to work long and hard. You have a great deal of patience with detail. You seem to prefer working with difficult problems rather than simpler ones. You are a reliable and conscientious worker whose efforts ensure that the work-at-hand is finished – perfectly.
But do try to keep an open mind. Your way of doing things is not, necessarily, the only way. Doing things the “proper” way has a definite place in your life, particularly where craftsmanship is involved, but unless this attitude is kept in perspective, it can also produce emotional, physical, and social problems.
You may have a tendency to criticize those whose lifestyles are different to your own. This can lead to alienation from the very people from whom you have the most to learn and enjoy. It may be difficult for you to tolerate certain people and, yet, if you look closely at other aspects of their lives, you may notice where they are more “together” than you. There is a good chance that they have something to teach you. Socially, you may focus your disapproving eye on one petty detail of someone else, and fail to see the true value of the individual. Your frustration with others can sometimes turn into dominance or bossiness. You must learn to accept others, as they are, and know that you are free to stay or walk away. Open your mind to life’s natural diversity. Resist the urge to “tidy” everything up. The fact that you are a natural problem-solver sometimes causes you to look for problems which, to others, are no problem at all.
You have a serious approach to most things, even though the other energies in your life may soften this tendency to some extent. You have a fixed or dogmatic approach to most matters, which can range from great courage and fortitude, to extreme pettiness and obstinacy. Even if you believe you are living a life that is foot-loose and fancy-free, even if you believe you have a wonderful sense of humor, or that you exude creativity, there is a certain rigidity in your beliefs which is caused by your profound desire for a specific identity.
You may need to develop a lighter approach to who and what you are and the image you want to portray. Your identity is not measured by the work that you do. This may be difficult to fathom, since work is a major aspect of your very destiny. But work does not only pertain to what you do for a living. Your life’s work – your destiny – is a matter of living in a state of freedom which enables you to do something you love. You have to work. Therefore, it is logical to work at something you truly enjoy.
Sometimes, you may find yourself going in the opposite direction of your desires by becoming disorganized, lazy, irresponsible, out of time, out of place, resenting others, and with no sense of accountability or compassion. This is guilt disguising itself as blame. When these negatives arise, it is difficult to see that it is you, yourself, who is causing the problems. Your identity, therefore, is not a matter of what you do for a living, but of living the life you want to live. Remember that living a life that is organized includes making time for love, tenderness, enjoyment, creativity, social activity, relaxation, and plain old fun. There must be a healthy balance between work and play, seriousness and lightness etc.
Not only does your life emphasize work, but you also possess a deep curiosity for how things work. 4s are so often known for their love of gadgets, mechanical devices, psychology, medicine, physics, and metaphysics. In this regard, you must not allow your tendency to always do things the “proper” way to confine you to old understandings which have since been expanded upon. You admire and respect experts, but you must realize that experts can only remain experts by striving to increase their knowledge.
So what is the purpose of a destiny that is so filled with limitations? By treating your limitations as challenges and not immovable barriers; to be constantly aware of your limits so that you can expand them; by finding the opportunities that are always hidden within those limitations; its purpose – your purpose – is to learn how to live in a state of freedom from limitations. The end result? Love, free Will, happiness, recognition, and great accomplishment.
Freedom from limitation means having the intelligence and courage to realize that life is full of limitations, and that by doing whatever has to be done to deal with them, many can be eliminated. This requires effort and determination. But it also requires balance. This means knowing when to take a break so that your energies can be replenished and your life can actually be enjoyed. 4s can be relentless workaholics who do not understand that, from time to time, they are supposed to stop, relax, luxuriate, and actually savor the fruits of their work.
Accept that you have limitless potential and you can achieve the most significant material and spiritual goals. Become a master of the 4 path by combining your highest ideals with the enormous power that 4 give you. It is not enough to merely dream about large-scale accomplishments. You have what it takes to make your dreams a reality. 4 is the number of the Architect and Builder. Your dreams will be constructed, one piece at a time, through uncommon vision, well laid plans, and the passion to see those plans through to a satisfying conclusion. You have the potential to inspire and change the world with your constructiveness – or – create havoc with the abuse of this power.
Your destiny is one of greatness, and you will have to find a way to overcome a massive obstacle that stands in your way. This obstacle is the inferiority complex that tells you that greatness is not part of your destiny. Let go of this wrong judgment. Let go of your cynicism. Believe in your vast capabilities my dear 4. There’s nothing you cannot achieve if you give yourself the freedom to focus on and put your heart into your deepest desires.
As a destiny number 4 you do not like being told what to do neither do you like being told that you are wrong. You must exercise caution when it comes to narrow mindedness and stubbornness. You can often become too stuck in your ways and once you have decided you are right nothing or no one can change your mind. You must remember not to take yourself or life too seriously.
