Pleasant and sociable by nature, Burke
are nevertheless quite reserved at first. They are sensitive and emotional souls, however they generally manage to remain in control of themselves and this just seems to make them even more charming... Bright and quick-witted, they are quickly able to grasp the essential elements of people and situations and are extremely adaptable with plenty of know-how. What's more, they are rarely short of humour and enjoy verbal sparring matches, at which they excel. They can be terribly persuasive if they need to be and have a tendency to oscillate between two antagonistic influences; that of the number 3 (sensual, care-free and pleasure orientated) which pushes them to communicate and externalize, making them enthusiastic but also liable to squander their energy and spread themselves to thinly (especially if they were born on a 3rd, 12th, 21st, 30th, in March, or if they have a Life Path
Number of 3); and that of the 4 (stable, sober and principled) which drives them to create and build, to persevere and challenge everything; however it can also make them inclined to pessimism (more pronounced if they were born on a 4th, 13th, 22nd, 31st or if 4 is their Life Path
Number). They are energetic and courageous men who have a firm grasp of material reality and could reveal themselves to be shrewd business men. Of logical and rational mind, they prefer to rely on solid, tried and tested thought processes than trust in their intuition. Because they are touchy and rather vain, they are capable of violent outbursts of anger if they feel humiliated. Their behaviour can be quite contradictory due to the opposing vibrations mentioned above, and they are capable of great impatience in one area of their lives and astonishing perseverance, serenity and patience in another; alternately extroverted and introverted, generous and miserly, joyful and melancholy... Burke
are enigmatic creatures, and this is in large part due to their nervous disposition. As children, these changing moods are even more pronounced and certain limits will definitely need to be established. They could be gifted artists so their creativity is to be encouraged, along with their aptitude to learn other languages. Drawing, dance and theatre are all suitable activities for their expressive talents, since they are generally supple and good with their hands.
