Numerology Article by Alison Baughman
The Much-Maligned Number 4
The poor Number 4 always gets a bad rap. We can lay partial blame upon
The Japanese consider the 4 to be very unlucky because it is pronounced
"shi" which is also the word for death in Japanese.
The Chinese feel much the same way about the 4. In both cultures, they
omit the number 4 from room numbers and you will not find a 4th floor in
a skyscraper in either country.
They even have a name for the fear of the number 4 called "Tetraphobia."
Well I am going to stand up for the number 4 by saying it is not a bad
number at all but even more so, it is an essential number.
The Number 4 represents discipline, focus and determination and I do not care how talented you are ,
without these qualities you will not make the most use out of your talents and abilities.
The Number 4 promises rewards through hard work and some of the most successful people on this
planet have a 4 working for them in their Numerology Chart.
The Number 4 is grounded, practical and makes carefully thought-out financial decisions. Trust me,
when the rest of us are broke, we can always borrow money from the sensible 4 because they will
have planned and saved to put themselves on solid financial ground.
People who have the number 4 in their charts are the cornerstone of any business because they are
responsible and can be counted upon to get the job done.
Who hasn't called in sick to work on a beautiful Spring day? I will tell you who..the 4. They not only

their rewards eventually.
People with the number 4 have excellent organizational abilities. You can bet that those of us who are
lacking in 4 energy tear the house apart looking for our car keys but the 4 knows exactly where they
What can be most admired about people with the 4 energy is that they are honest and have good
moral values. They have a love of family and community and are the greatest patriots in this country.
Yes, I admire the steadfast abilities of the Number 4 and have come to understand that being
disciplined and hard-working is not a bad thing at all. I aspire to nurture the 4 in me and focus on my
work and apply myself.
Now first, where did I put my car keys?
