is an affectionate and friendly soul who enjoys the company of others. He is emotional and sensitive although he appears phlegmatic; corresponding reasonably well with an asthenic temperament (he is often influenced by the Moon or Cancer). For him, life seems to be pretty plain sailing, because Kartikeya
, rather slow and steady, isn't really dynamic, neither is he particularly enterprising or determined, preferring to put off till tomorrow the things that he could do today. Fairly dependent on his environment (particularly the maternal and feminine influences), Kartikeya
is sensitive to the given ambiance and can go from indolence or laziness to over-activity with the emotional stimulation of a romantic or platonic relationship, and his moods can be unpredictable. Everything depends on his level of motivation, alternating between periods of life in slow motion and others that are much more hectic, seized by a sudden impulse which can disappear just as quickly... because he has an exasperating tendency to live more in his daydreams than in the real world! His assets are his charm, kindness, helpfulness and camaraderie. His psychological insight, coupled with fine intuitive abilities and plenty of know-how go some way towards compensating for his laziness. Choosing a social and often humanitarian cause will motivate him and allow him to live his Master Number 11. Kartikeya
is particularly likely to flourish by realizing his dreams, which would bestow him with a certain amount of strength and help him to leave immaturity behind along with his need to be supported, by taking responsibility for himself (especially if he was born on the 11th, in November, or if he has a Life Path
Number of 11). As a child, he is endearing, affectionate and kind, making him hard to resist. Nevertheless, his parents would do well not to succumb to his angelic smile, and will need to be gentle but firm with him. Kartikeya
would benefit from an early education regarding the notions of work, discipline, orderliness and responsibility... because such concepts are generally not included in his personality. Because he is anxious to do well and therefore heavily influenced by his family circle, his heart's desire will be to make you happy. It would be a good idea to encourage him to take music lessons at a relatively tender age because he is a musician and an artist at heart. His education will depend very much on the family environment: he will require encouragement to do his work, although his excellent memory will prove to be a valuable asset.
