are active, independent, authoritarian and eager to impress. They live with two opposing influences; one of which is characterized by a bossy and ambitious streak that pushes them to take action and firmly take hold of the reins of their destiny without worrying about anybody else. This tendency will be more accentuated if they were born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th day of the month or if they have a Life Path Number
of 1. The other tendency makes them more passive, conciliatory and cooperative, shy and lazy - and willing to do anything to keep the peace. This will be more pronounced if they were born on a 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th, or if they have a Life Path Number
of 2; and will lead them to paradoxical situations where, if left to their own devices, they will become bossy and controlling to the point of appearing conceited, ruthless, arrogant or opportunistic. On the other hand, if they feel well supported emotionally, they tend to soften up and are more willing to compromise. In any case, they possess savvy and are apt to plan, organise and manage, without too much difficulty; thanks to their above average practical intelligence and a firm grasp of concrete reality. They are impatient, impulsive, passionate and very emotional characters; however their feelings tend to be fleeting and volatile, making them capricious at times. They are big-hearted and generous souls although they don't always know how to express their emotions. As children, they could be shy and apprehensive because their active imagination often plays tricks on them (especially if they were born in February or in November). They therefore require plenty of reassurance and stimulation by conferring them responsibilities from a young age so that they can gain confidence in themselves. However, Bertrade
could equally be bold, argumentative or reckless, or all three, especially if they were born in August.
