is a sensitive and emotional man, although outside appearances could lead one to suppose that the exact opposite is true. He could indeed appear cold, distant or a little severe; but this is nothing more than a facade that is designed to conceal his natural timidity. Likewise, he is cautious and wary, remaining reserved until he knows who he is dealing with. But stick around a while, because he is sensible, dependable and responsible - and always there when you need him. He has a knack for resolving material or practical problems and is often the first to offer to help; his work being a source of satisfaction to him as well as providing the opportunity to show off his talents. However, Mathghamhain
is a multifaceted character, given the two antagonistic influences that co-exist within his personality. The 4 (sign of introversion and solitude) makes him appear quite serious, industrious, strict, methodical, patient, pernickety, perseverant and even obstinate at times... while the 3 (sign of extroversion and sociability) renders him more light-hearted and playful, impatient, dissipated or even disorganized, which can be quite surprising if one is only acquainted with the first personality. With the exception of if he was born on a 3rd, 12th, 21st, 30th, or has a Life Path
Number of 3, he will need to fully experience both of these energies, the integration of which is necessary to his well-being. He could therefore be stable, thrifty and diligent for a long time; then he will relax for a while and become much more dissolute and fun-loving. Mathghamhain
seeks to constantly advance in life, and while monotony provides a certain security, novelty is also very exciting! In any case, all changes in his life will be preceded by much reflection, and any risks he takes will be calculated. Furthermore, even though he is an essentially nervous man, he possesses very impressive self-mastery. Nevertheless, the karmic 1 could mean that he has a few difficulties managing his impulses, which could lead to authoritarianism, intransigence or arrogance... however it is also possible (albeit quite rare) that he leans rather too heavily on others. As a child, he tends to be reserved and could be overly internalized and secretive - or by contrast, a right chatterbox. He is likely to be tempted to undertake a program of study, probably of a scientific nature; where he will prove himself to be sensible and disciplined. He needs plenty of encouragement because he easily feels misunderstood. Parents, cultivate his sense of humour and teach him the value of sharing with others.
