Life path number 31/4
Being a 4, he’s a hard worker, that’s plain, but he’s also a ‘passive 4’ which means he has extra challenges to overcome. It just shows what you can do even with certain weaknesses in your chart.
Mind you, he also has two lines of strength: The Line of Determination and The Line of Action.
The Line of Action
These ‘higher’ numbers carry an increased vibration which, when combined in this line, create a powerful energy stimulating action, movement, and quick responses. People with this line will not procrastinate once the decision has been made to act. The physical power and intensity of this line has to be tempered by proper rest and a healthy lifestyle. Plenty of fresh air is required to release the tensions that could lead to nervous headaches.
Life path 4
The number 4 is primarily concerned with the practical demands of the material world. The 4 does not possess the spark of originality but is firmly rooted in the Earth and symbolizes loyalty and dedication through self-discipline. They are generally referred to as the workers of the world, who must strive diligently to achieve their goals.
Those who resist the self-discipline that leads to fulfillment on this path can experience extreme frustrations in their daily lives: they will fail in business if they constantly seek shortcuts: they risk alienating their friends and family if they pursue unconventional behavior or a fad that they may hope ‘gets them out of the rat race’.
People with the ‘passive’ trait can be: careless over details, resist new methods, narrow, must see practicality before accepting ideas, and fight intellectualism.
Life path 31/4
To compensate for insecurity, many 31/4s develop highly ambitious, even egotistical personas – big egos that work to prove their worth as they strive to stay in a superior position due to fears of inferiority beneath the surface.
However, the combination of strong foundation energy, creative energy, and expressive energy gives rise to a well-balanced, synergistic blend of strength, sensitivity, and creativity. This blend, along with a drive for security and strong ambitions, creates a multi-faceted potential for success. When these drives and qualities are working in harmony, 31/4s can accomplish their highest aspirations.
A secure ‘home base’ and a safe, settled, orderly environment amplify these individuals’ impact many times over.
For 31/4s, strong creative drives, a confident, out-going persona, and a constant striving for success veil an underlying insecurity. They can be highly competitive because they feel they need to prove themselves to overcome their fear of not measuring up. They have strength, ambition and a desire for status. The twin shadows of self-doubt and insecurity are worthy challenges on the way to manifesting their strength and achieving success. A key concept for 4s is that success, in terms of their life purpose, lies not in achieving the end product but in their ability to go through the necessary process.
Many 31/4s experience difficult family histories, sometimes entailing physical abuse by at least one parent, or perhaps a military childhood that meant they moved around and didn’t have a stable home life. Therefore they have the hurdle to overcome of establishing strong foundations. They need to work express all of their emotions, including anger and resentment, before they can express their love. They don’t have to agree with their parents but they need to bring any issues out into the open and express their feelings, even if parents are deceased.
Those 31/4s who have previously worked through a structured process, such as athletes, musicians, or anyone who has stuck with a process of skill training, are way ahead of the game, because they have a template or model they can apply to anything else they do.
The strength of the 31/4, coupled with creative energy, gives them a robust appeal, ruggedness and resistance to everyday illnesses. They are basically strong, but vulnerable at foundation points, ankles, knees, thighs and hips.
The easy sociability of 31/4s attracts many friends and admirers. They tend to be gregarious, family-oriented, and generally relaxed people. But their air of confidence often hides an insecurity they are wise to acknowledge to themselves and others, in order to achieve authenticity. In their vulnerability, they can find new strength.
Due to their array of creative and expressive energies, and their sound analytical abilities, they find success in a variety of careers, centered on some sort of business, advising or counseling in real estate or investments.

Expression number 3 – The expression number gives the traits that need expression in order to help us come into line with our life paths
Number 3s have a natural ability to uplift others with their words and ideas. Their true purpose in life is to inspire and motivate others with their creations and optimism. They find happiness when focused on their creative goals. Fame is also often in the potential future of a 3.
Soul urge 3 – The underlying motivations in life
Again, he has a 3 soul number. They shine at any kind of activity that involves public performance including acting, singing or politics. They desire to be admired.
Personality number 9 – This number shows personality traits and how the person is perceived by others and in public
Romantic and emotional people who wear their heart on their sleeve, they love deeply and show compassion to those in need. They are tolerant and broad-minded and enjoy travel. Their idealism is infectious, creating a dynamic charisma that attracts like-minded souls. They are creative people who benefit from a fulfilling outlet.
However, they can be emotionally impressionable, and have a tendency to be gullible.
In love: Cancerians are not ones to fall in love at first sight, or if they do, they keep their feelings well hidden. The fear of rejection is very real for these people and commitment only comes when they are absolutely sure of the person involved. When they do lower their defences, Cancerians are caring and tender lovers. They will go to great lengths to ensure that their partner is happy, creating an atmosphere that just suits the occasion.
In work: The Cancer worker is a friendly spirit, creative, loyal, and dedicated to doing a good job. Since Cancer individuals are concerned about the security of their home life and their ability to keep their possessions safe, they will do whatever is necessary to maintain stability and that translates into putting one’s nose to the grindstone at work, so to speak. There is also their need for security and they like to know they can rely on regular pay cheques.
Because they are such good strategists, onlookers may not realize what the Cancer person is up to. They may not seem to be heading for a goal, but taking side trips instead, but do not be fooled, they are taking time to size up the situation. Once they see the big picture, they will grab hold of a task or project and never let go until it is whipped into shape.
They enjoy fine food served in a pleasant atmosphere, so if you’re about to ask a favor, or want to put your Cancer person on a tough assignment, it would not be a bad idea to bring this up over dinner out.
A dependable individual who takes his or her work seriously, the Cancer person can be counted on to lead a group or come up with new approaches to carry out an assignment with great dispatch. A Cancerian in a group of friends will make the most effort to bond the group together, perhaps seeing them as an extension of their family.
Cancerians do have a sensitive side – no matter how strong they may appear. They have their moments when they truly do prefer to hide in their shells and be unsociable – they sometimes need time out to recharge their batteries.
Brief Bio of Sir Richard
Branson has dyslexia, which resulted in poor academic performance as a student. He was the captain of football and cricket teams, and by the age of fifteen he had started two ventures that eventually failed: one growing Christmas trees and another raising budgerigars.
At sixteen, Branson left school and moved to London, where he began his first successful business, Student magazine. When he was seventeen, he opened a Student Advisory Centre.
He says his childhood is something of a blur to him now, but there are several episodes that stand out. He remembers that his parents continually set him and his sisters challenges. His mother was determined to make them independent. When he was four years old, she stopped the car a few miles from home and made him find his own way across the fields. He got hopelessly lost.
Their challenges tended to be physical rather than academic, and soon they were setting them for themselves. He has an early memory of learning how to swim. It took a lot of effort and a final big risk but it won him a ten-shilling note, the most money he had ever held – it seemed like a fortune.
He says he cannot remember a moment in his life when he has not felt the love of his family. “They were a family that would have killed for each other – and they still are.” His parents adored each other, and in his childhood there was barely a cross word between them. Eve, his mother, was always full of life and galvanized them. Ted, his father, was a rather quieter figure who smoked his pipe and enjoyed his newspaper, but both his parents had a love of adventure.
His motor, Eve Huntley-Flindt, had picked up some of her dazzling energy from her mother Dorothy, who holds two British records: aged 89 his Granny became the oldest person in Britain to pass the advanced Latin-American ballroom dancing examination, and aged 90 she became the oldest person to hit a hole in one at golf. She was 99 when she died, and shortly before that, she had written to him to say that the previous ten years had been the best of her life. She had never stopped learning. Her attitude was, you’ve got one go in life, so make the most of it!
