are pleasant and sociable characters who possess a certain charm, while remaining reserved, undoubtedly through caution and wariness. Highly strung and easily worried women, they are also inclined to be impatient and irritable. They can often be difficult to understand because their personalities are dual in nature. They could appear energetic, communicative, enthusiastic, curious, literally breathing ebullience, adapting easily to any new situation and image conscious to the point of appearing shallow or superficial (more pronounced if they were born on a 3rd, 12th, 21st or 30th day of the month, or if they have a Life Path
Number of 3). Another day, one may be astonished to observe that they are now industrious, reliable, patient and even very moralizing (more pronounced if they were born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st; or if they have a Life Path
Number of 4). This cyclic pattern of behaviour can also be observed in their tendency to seek communication and the company of others followed by a need for solitude in order to recollect their thoughts and feelings and touch base with themselves. They could appear epicurean, spending money recklessly - their only concern being the desire to have a good time, then much more austere and thrifty - now thinking ahead. They are attracted to novelty and change but they are also sensitive to security and comfort, sometimes seeking a life of routine. They tend to internalize their feelings and are much more comfortable talking about the last film they saw than baring their soul, which can often make them come across as being haughty or insensitive. They possess a true sense of duty and responsibility and can be strong-willed, courageous and motivated. However, they can occasionally be caught in the act of behaving in disaccord with their own noble principles and moral values... As children, Gertrúd
are endearing because they are clever enough to know what to do and say to please their parents. Rather nervous and prone to worry, they require plenty of reassurance and should be encouraged to communicate as effectively as possible so that some of their more irrational fears can be quashed. It is therefore necessary to establish a parent-child relationship that is based on trust and listening.
