You have are strongly independent and have high self-esteem – this is your biggest advantage. However, because you are so independent, you probably dislike the feel of being depended on by others. You need to understand that teamwork is as important as independence. Learn to be modest, open your heart and be accepting of others; learn to trust others, and be more appreciative when other people try to help you with projects.

You need to learn how to encourage and support others, not just seek compliments and admiration for yourself.


If you want to be successful and happy, the first step is to become independent. Your dependency is the biggest problem in your life. You may often bother your friends and family, and sometimes they may want to run away from you. When they cannot satisfy your needs, you tend to become sharp and unkind. You may feel that they don’t care about you, but that isn’t true. They simply want you to think for yourself.

Your nature is sensitive and easy going, so you may let others get their way and agree with whatever they say, even if it hurts your feelings to do so. You tend to keep your feelings and thoughts bottled up, which makes you even sadder whilst you pretend to be happy. Therefore, you need to harden your heart and attempt to express yourself freely.


Your dreams tend to be unrealistic and/or unattainable. You need to realize this and face reality, so that you can set realistic goals that you can actually achieve. This will do wonders for your self-esteem, given that succeeding at a small goal feels much better than failing at a large one.

You are kind-hearted, but sometimes you can be too kind without thinking about the consequences. Don’t let people take advantage of your kindness; be selective in the favours that you do for people, to avoid getting hurt.


You are constantly searching for a feeling of security, but you need to know that real security is found inside of your heart, not in the outside world. You won’t be satisfied with the state of your life until you better yourself; it’s far simpler than trying to better the world. You can’t do something like that on your own.

You must learn to take risks and be more accepting of change. If you don’t accept that changes are going to occur in your life, you’ll never learn how to handle them when they do. Don’t be afraid of trying new things; you will grow from the experience.

Remember to take a break. It doesn’t matter how busy you are; take a little bit of time to relax. Believe it or not, you can’t avoid problems by staying busy all of the time. Learn to accept that some things are just out of your control. Worry less, and start living more.


You are constantly seeking freedom. You work really hard for your money because you think it will give you the freedom to do whatever you want. This means you tend to take high paying jobs; however, you don’t like to take any the responsibility that comes with it because you are afraid of losing the freedom you desire. Therefore, you need to be clear that desiring excessive freedom will result in failure. You need to find a balance.

You lack courage, so you always want to run away from problems. Even though you know what you want, sometimes you quit in the end. You hesitate when making decisions because you know once you made the decision, you have given up on other possibilities. You need to know that when you hesitate, you may miss lots of opportunities and you may regret it afterwards.


You are selfless and devoted. Therefore it is important to remember that you be careful when choosing friends. Those who are confident, optimistic, hardworking, have clear life goals and similar interests as yours, are good for you. Otherwise you will be stressed.

You care about what others think of you too much, sometimes to such an extent that you become a totally different person. So please remember, love yourself and be yourself. Learn to say “no” and don’t push yourself too hard to help others.


Being emotional is not a problem, as long as you don’t let it control your life. You need to remember to rely on others for emotional support as much as they rely on you. Otherwise, you’ll burn yourself out.

You love to ask questions and do research, but you have to be aware that, once you have found out the truth, you need to face it, accept it, and even allow it to change your life. Be cautious in what you get involved in.


You should always be honest with yourself. Never do anything that you don’t want to do just for money. Also, never hide your emotions. You’re better off to express them; otherwise it may be damaging to your health. Try to open your heart and be more vulnerable. Putting on a tough face is good in some situations, but certainly not all of them.

Don’t dwell on problems that you cannot change. Nothing in your life will ever be completely perfect, no matter how hard you try to make it that way; the sooner you accept that your best is good enough, the better you will feel.


In your mind, encouraging others to live better is your responsibility, but don’t push yourself too hard. You need to remember to take care of yourself, too. Before solving other people’s problems, solve your own first. Don’t let yourself fall into unhealthy relationships, in which you spend all of your time pleasing your significant other. You are sensitive and kind in nature, so it is hard for you to think for yourself and even harder for you to fight for your rights. Therefore, especially in a romantic relationship, it is important to provide yourself with private time and space, as well as respect your partner’s.

You also need to stop dreaming and thinking so much, and put actual effort into making your dreams come true. If you put all of your focus and effort into the one thing that matters to you the most, you are more likely to be successful.

Hopefully you find some of this advice useful and, if you do, keep an eye out for more numerology articles! It never hurts to learn more about yourself – it really is the first step to becoming a better person, inside and out.
