Without a shadow of a doubt, Matthaios
have got plenty of character! Of a choleric temperament and somewhat nervous, they are overflowing with energy. They have a great need for action and motivation, without which they can immediately become intolerant, abrupt, irritable or even aggressive... They are quite capable of enthusiasm one minute followed by worry and negativity the next, making a mountain out of a mole hill and blowing the present moment out of all proportion. Their cyclothymic nature can be quite disconcerting for those who bear witness to such behaviour. In fact, the union of the 7 and 8 is an association of fire (passion, exaggeration, hyperactivity, authority and impulsiveness) and water (reserve, reflection, passivity, sensitivity and introversion)... They can therefore appear to be quite dualistic and contradictory, just like their interests: they can go from competitive sport to exploring mysticism, metaphysics or contemplation. As children, these little rascals could test your patience and push your kindness to its limits. Encourage them to take part in a physical activity (dance, sport), and cultivate their sensitivity (theatre, music or art). They could actually seem to be quite unsociable or individualistic (especially if they were born on a 7th, 16th, 25th, in July, or if their Life Path
Number is 7), or conversely, they may seek to impose themselves on others (especially if they were born on an 8th, 17th, 26th, in August, or if they have a Life Path
Number of 8). But make no mistake about it, Matthaios
are extremely sensitive, nervous and anxious little people!
