Let’s look into the number 4. Look around you at the items in your everyday life. Your desk has 4 legs. Your car has 4 wheels. Your cellphone has 4 corners. This is the epitome of the number 4. It represents stability, reliability, and purpose. Its energy is grounded, secure, and dependable. If a leg came off your desk with only 3 legs, it would be unbalanced. It’s the same in numerology.
Because of the way that 4 is a workhorse, it’s not particularly frivolous or charismatic. 4 won’t win any popularity contests, but it might win a medal for being a workaholic. It gets ahead not by charm or enticement but by sheer determination and purpose. It’s focused, often blunt or dour, but it gets the job done. There’s no fuss, no frills with 4; just plain old responsibility and dedication.
Numerology states that 4 needs to feel in control of things simply because of its conscientious nature. When it feels that things are rocky, out of its control, or being overlooked, stress and anxiety take hold. 4 likes to adhere to the status quo and doesn’t take to change very easily. Abrupt changes make it feel like a fish out of water, and its coping mechanism is to lash out and dig in its heels with a loud, “but we’ve always done it this way!”
Wherever 4 lands in your numerology reading and other numerical sequences in your life, 4 shows you where you need to work hard to reap high rewards. It reveals where you’ve got natural leadership skills, where you need to be less frivolous and more dedicated, and where you need to learn to develop patience and tolerance to reach your full potential. As rooted and grounded as 4 is, it also indicates where you need to gracefully open yourself to change rather than being too set in your ways.
