How to calculate your number
Begin with your date of birth.
Reduce the date to a single digit, if you’re born on a double-digit date, by adding the digits involved. For example: If you’re born on the 12th of a month, your number is 1 + 2 = 3.
Aries is represented by No. 9 and Mars, a fiery planet, just like the Sun. They’re the same, yet different. Numbers 1 and 9 are two extreme poles of numero-science, both unlike each other. But the Sun is in its full glory at the moment, so all you have to do is go out and experience the glow. Outdoor activities may help revitalise pent-up energy. Work wise, you are likely to do well as this period will gift you renewed vigour, spirit and focus. Keep a check on your temper and ego, and halt any ambitious projects this month.
Those in the creative field can shine this April. If you feel someone is conspiring against you, it could be likely that you’re too quick to judge. Misunderstandings can dampen long-term relations. So polish yourself on that front. Under this planetary influence, you’ll be less emotional than usual and could perhaps be more productive, as well. Mars, the ruler of April, presents you with energy and enthusiasm.
You can expect a spell of two good months hereon, provided you don’t stop the toil. Hopefully, you’ll take some time out from your power-packed work regime and be more adventurous this month. But don’t forget to take some time out for a family outing or two. Health wise, guard against neck strain as you are likely to overwork yourself. It’s a positive period to make the best of the environment. All the medicines in the world can’t match the power of nature’s wonderful cure. So bask in all of nature’s glory.
April is a fast-paced month, so go all-out, firing to your max potential! You can’t rectify bygones and unproductive days, but you can definitely endeavour to focus more in the times to come. April shall gift you that much desired energy. You will level-up, or at least begin to strengthen yourself. Alternate remedies could attract you. And it’s likely that you’ll be busy throughout — which is a good thing. A bolt of lightning is best only when it can produce energy. This month could mark the onset of better health through fitness.
Don’t let over-versatility make you a person of no land; imperfection is your closest enemy. Mercury (No. 5) melts with heat, and Mars (No. 9) is fiery like a pendulum. So fortunes could swing either way. Control your mind by thinking constructively and being with positive people. It’s not too difficult a task for you to mix work and pleasure. Avoid taking unnecessary risks; speculative industries could burn your pockets. Those in manufacturing could see a slow but steady revival. If you’re looking to get married, expect a delay.
The next two months are for you to shine! Finances could march upwards steadily. In contrast to your overspending nature, accrue your savings and park your income in long-term assets before making unnecessary purchases. Don’t get so involved in work that you neglect your health. It’s also the best time to take the big call on career, shift in residence, or the sacred knot. An emotionally indulging few months seem to be on the cards.
Your mind can wander like a pendulum going both ways, which could lead you to unnecessary arguments. Keep a tab on your ego to avoid any of this from happening. Much to your relief, 2023 adds to your primary number, No. 7. So this year itself could bag you more accolades. Mentally and physically, you’re likely to feel more energetic, which could subsequently help you maintain good health. Curtail your current expenses so your past savings can fund your future hobbies.
You have to be more wary physically as well as emotionally, as this month is not particularly the one you can vouch for. April is Aries-governed (represented by No. 9), which is not suitable for you No. 8s. So close, yet so far. However, a tough start doesn’t necessarily imply a tough end. The next month is governed by Taurus (No. 6), allowing you a sigh of relief. Stall any investments or important decisions till end-April.
This is your month! April is governed by Aries (No. 9), your very number. So there’s no reason why you shouldn’t focus on succeeding. Productivity could be at its peak. Plus, May is governed by Taurus (No. 6), another one of your favourable numbers. Be conscious of your behaviour towards near and dear ones. You may, at times, be harsh with your tone. Yoga and Pranayam shall always be your go-to solution. In fact, workouts are equally important in channelising your fiery disposition.
