In order to understand the significances, importance and working of number 4 in numerology, let’s first look into the relation of number 4 with astrology. Number 4 is ruled by Rahu according to Vedic Jyotish and accordingly this number exhibits many characteristics of Rahu which is known as a shadow planet among navagraha and which is also known as a planet of Maya or illusion in Vedic Jyotish. Rahu is considered as a planet which is full of energy and this characteristic of Rahu is relayed through number 4 in numerology due to which many natives coming under the strong influence of number 4 are very energetic and they are always ready to do one thing or the other. Some number 4 natives are always charged with energy due to which they always keep themselves engaged in one kind of job or the other as these natives do not like the idea of sitting idle even for shorter durations of time. This habit of keeping themselves engaged in their job brings professional success and new achievements for number 4 natives and accordingly these natives can move ahead of their colleagues and competitors due to their passion towards doing their jobs. Many of number 4 natives have sufficient physical and mental energy to carry out various kinds of jobs and all these natives need is to set their focus on some particular job or activity and then it may not take much long for these natives to complete that job or activity which can become the key element to their success. Due to this characteristic, number 4 natives are generally considered as hard working in nature and they are also known as passionate workers and professionals.
Vedic Jyotish associates Rahu with change and revolution and these characteristics of Rahu are also relayed through number 4 in numerology due to which the natives under the strong influence of number 4 keep on working constantly to change or improve their circumstances and status. Many number 4 natives are dynamic or very dynamic in nature and they cannot cope with the idea of sitting at a job and doing the same routine every day for many years as they get bored very soon by such situations. Number 4 natives like to move and travel and likewise they are more interested in job profiles or professions which offer them a chance to travel here, do a variety of things and interact with a large number of people, instead of tying them up to some specific activities and some specific people. Number 4 natives are generally straight forward and they speak out whatever is going on their mind as they do not believe in beating around the bush or waiting for a long time in order to say some words at some suggested appropriate times. They simply do not believe in wasting time and they like to do and finish their tasks as soon as they can so that they can switch to some other tasks. The influence of Rahu makes these natives somewhat flexible but at the same time, these natives are very firm towards their opinions and decisions which means that number 4 natives are generally flexible when it comes to compromise on some small day to day matters or situations but they can be very firm and rigid when it comes to major decisions or matters or principals. Due to this characteristic possessed by these natives, number 4 natives have a fair tendency to surprise people at times as they can be considered as flexible looking at their day to day routine behavior but they can turn out to be very rigid at times. This element of surprising behavior again comes from Rahu as Vedic Jyotish considers Rahu as a planet of illusion, surprises and changes.
Rahu according to Vedic Jyotish is a planet of discoveries, inventions, explorations and other such things and many of these characteristics of Rahu are relayed through number 4 in numerology due to which the natives under the strong influence of number 4 exhibit good amount of curiosity, love for travel, search, exploration, invention, discoveries and other such things and accordingly many of these natives can be seen practicing in the professional spheres which require one or more of the above mentioned specialties. The natives under the strong influence of number 4 can be seen practicing as engineers, scientists, researchers, inventors, discoverers and many other kinds of professionals. Rahu is also known as a planet associated with communication skills, debate, argument abilities and quick wit in Vedic Jyotish and these qualities of Rahu are also expressed through number 4 in numerology and accordingly many number 4 natives possess good or very good abilities to debate on various topics, they have quickly processing brains and accordingly they are quick witted and many of these natives may come out with an appropriate answer just after the question has been asked which is again due to strong influence of Rahu on number 4. Some natives under very strong influence of Rahu are so quick that they can judge in advance as to what question is likely to be asked by the other person and they are ready with the answer even before the question is asked due to which such natives can turn most of the arguments and debates in their favour in a matter of minutes and due to these abilities possessed by number 4 natives, they can prove good lawyers, spokespersons and other kinds of professional which require the ability to debate and communications skills in order to achieve success.
Looking at the other side of number 4 natives, Rahu is considered as a restless planet in Vedic Jyotish and this characteristic of Rahu is expressed through number 4 in numerology and as a result the natives under the strong influence of this number can be seen constantly willing to move from one thing to the other and sometimes this change or desire for change is so fast that such natives change their jobs and interests very quickly. Number 4 natives lack patience again due to strong influence of Rahu on this number and accordingly these natives may not be fit for professions and situations which require patience. Due to their habit of moving on quickly and lack of patience, number 4 native may leave good or very good opportunities many times in their lives by moving on to something else, a bit too early and this characteristic of number 4 natives can be particularly bad for their relationships as these natives may not exhibit sufficient patience and they may decide to leave a relation and move on to some new relation even when the situation could be dealt with some patience and wisdom. Vedic Jyotish associates the aspect of Maya with Rahu and this aspect of illusion is conveyed to number 4 also due to which the natives under the strong influence of this number can sometimes be lost in the illusion of this number and they can let go of very good things and relations in pursuit of the things which have got little to do with reality. On the other hand, the same on positive side can bless the natives with a very good and core understanding of hidden secrets of many aspects of nature and as a result some natives under the strong and particular influence of number 4 can be seen practicing in spheres which relate to understanding the hidden aspects of things and mysteries of nature.
