The number 4 as birth day number

In Chaldean numerology, the day you are born in the month is of particular importance as it profoundly influences your personality. The following explains how this number will affect you if you are born on the 4th and which themes might be present in your life.

The number 4 gives you the ability to build new things from the ground up and to think inside AND outside the box.

Celestial body

4 is the number of Uranus. Uranus is a unique planet in the solar system. It has a horizontal axis of rotation, so it practically "rolls" along with its path around the sun like a wheel – as opposed to all the other planets that have a vertical axis of rotation.


Like Uranus, a four is entirely it's own. You might, therefore, have a unique music style, style of clothing, and view of life.

In Uranus, winter is long and lasts 21 years, which symbolizes that the 4 goes in-depth with things and is thorough and thoughtful. This ability to go deep and to think profoundly gives Uranus an amazing talent for innovation, and some of the most significant scientists and geniuses have many 4's in their charts.

The shift from winter to spring on Uranus creates great upheavals and devastating storms until the new season establishes itself. The same thing applies to the life of the number 4, where you might experience significant changes that mean losing everything and starting again from the ground up. For this very reason, number 4 is called a number of fate or karma.

The number 4 can also experience significant contrasts within themselves. They are at the same time, gentle and sensitive, but have a strong survival capacity, which can give an almost opportunistic nature.

The four is the number of the square – a reliable and robust shape – but with the same desire to build something "square" and stable also comes a deep and sometimes hidden willingness to tear it down again and to start again from scratch. This tendency is not so evident in the pure number 4 energy but is more apparent in the 13/4 and 31/4 variants of the four.

This deep and for many 4's hidden tendencies to go against well-established structures once they are built can give the 4 a rebellious and anti-authoritarian streak, continually saying and doing the opposite of others and going against the main consensus stream – this may lead to the 4 quickly feeling lonely and overlooked – like the black sheep in the family.

Uranus is the quietest of all the planets. Similarly, a 4 will not reveal so much about itself. They can be very talented and successful, but do not show it - contrary to Jupiter or the sun that are eager to show their success.


The 4 energy gives a deep and sincere desire to build new structures and frameworks, a real pioneering spirit - and you most probably have a practical sense that allows you to get things done. You also have a great perseverence that allows you to take on jobs that others would never be able to complete. While other number 4’s (such as 13 or 31) are more mental and contrarian in their nature the pure number is the most stalwarth of the 4’s, being at the same time steady and firm.

Love life

4's are amazing lovers full of creativity and passion. If somebody transgresses their boundaries, they can shut off and become ice cold. So beware of this tendency! Also, beware of being overly critical of your love partner.

Something that can drive partners crazy is your contrarian nature. Often when somebody says something to the number 4, the 4 responds, "No – I think it should be like this "– whereafter, you say the exact same thing as was suggested. Sometimes the number 4 feels the need to say "no" to create a reframing, a shock effect, or a way to create a pause in the conversation that allows new energies and angles to come into play. But for others having to deal with this contrarianism, it can be not very easy.

Biggest emotional issue to greatest liberation

Your most important lesson in life is to open your heart to humanity and feel that you belong. When the 4 energy is imbalanced, it can make you feel wrong and different, dissatisfied, bitter, misunderstood, and that life is meaningless like a cog that doesn't fit in anywhere.

When the 4's energy becomes too powerful, the energy can make you rebellious and turn against everything – a rebel without a cause.

Your most profound purpose in life is to bring new ideas into the world, to make it a better place, and to build up new structures and systems.

As a 4, you resonate with the energies of universal inspiration and have access to the higher mental planes where brilliant ideas are created.

The 4 in balance is:

  • Solid
  • Pioneering
  • Secretive
  • Quietly determined
  • Innovative

The 4 unbalanced is

  • Contrarian, rebellious and in opposition
  • Anarchistic and has problems with authority
  • Isolating itself from others
  • Often seen as a bit strange and weird
  • The black sheep

4 is under the influence of URANUS

Uranus is the coldest planet in our solar system and has a temperature of about -220 degrees centigrade. There are large cloud formations in the atmosphere, created by water in the lowest clouds and methane in the upper cloud cover. The planet itself is made up of ice and rocks. The clouds give a cloudy light blue impenetrable look. Much like the planet itself, Uranus people are mysterious, profound and don't reveal much about themselves at first glance.

Uranus is the quietest of all planets. In contrast to this, Jupiter makes a lot of electromagnetic noise as you approach it.

Uranus has large, vertical rings around it. Where Saturn's rings are horizontal, Uranus' rings are vertical. This symbolizes an opposition between the two planets.

The axis of Uranus is tilted almost 90 degrees. This makes Uranus "roll" along its axis, while the other planets are like spinning tops on their trajectories. This makes Uranus unique among all the worlds. In Uranus people, this translates to them doing and saying the opposite of what everyone else is saying. There is both an excentric and contrarian streak.

It takes Uranus a full 84 years to orbit the sun, and the eccentric axis of rotation means that while one hemisphere is bathed in light, the other is in constant darkness - for an entire season. This gives very long summers and winters. The transition between summer and winter happens very quickly on Uranus, symbolizing upheavals, and violent transformations. That is why Uranus represents changes that occur very suddenly, and that changes a person, a generation, or the whole world.

The long winter represents that Uranus energy goes in-depth. It is not fast and flighty but thorough and profound.

The north and south poles are not fixed, which means that Uranus does not stand firm on how things are, and the truth is perceived as relative and can be continually challenged.
