Secretive and reserved, Emerald
are introverted and wary by nature, and tend not to open up very easily. Emotional and sensitive, they do their best not to let their deepest feelings show on the outside. One would be forgiven for thinking that they are cold, aloof and distant, or even heartless! However, nothing could be further from the truth, because they are actually a little lacking in self-confidence, while sceptical and somewhat pessimistic, Emerald
don't believe in luck, and are convinced that one must create one's own favorable circumstances. This is why they tend to externalize through their work, where they prove themselves to be attentive to detail, perfectionist, hardworking and determined, as well as capable of investing themselves heavily in their career or studies, even to the detriment of the other areas of their lives. Thoughtful, cautious, thrifty, egocentric, level headed but also loyal, they are quite rigorous where their principles are concerned. Nonetheless, another aspect of their character leans towards fragility, submission, inferiority, dependence, shyness and anxiety, although these tendencies are more pronounced during childhood where the maternal environment is a key determinant. Indeed, it is possible that they are unable to live up to the powerful vibrations induced by their master number 11, and instead adopt those of the 2 which are easier to live with. The family environment is important and it is imperative that it provides support while favouring their autonomy, without which they might never get off the ground and spread their wings to live in harmony with the 11, which promises strength and ascendency over others... (especially if they were born on a 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th, in February or November, or if they have a Life Path Number
of 2 or 11).
