The Affinity of Colours and Numbers

Number 1: Persons, namely those born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th (numbers which by the addition of themselves produce the number 1), should dress themselves as much as possible in all shades of brown (light or dark) and all shades of yellow or gold colours, or at least have some of these colours about their person. If they have the freedom to select colours for their sleeping rooms, they should follow the same rule.

They will find this colour rule will have an excellent effect in soothing their nerves, and they will rest and sleep better in rooms having their own colours.

Number 2: Persons, namely, those born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th, should wear all shades of green from the darkest to the lightest shade, also cream and white.

They should avoid all heavy dark colours, especially black, purple, and dark red.

Number 3: Persons, namely, those born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, or 30th, should wear shades of mauve, violet, or the pale or lilac shade of purple, but as men cannot easily dress in such colours, they should at least employ them in their neckties, shirts or handkerchiefs.

Number 4: Persons, namely, those born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, or 31st, should wear what are called the “electric colours” blue, greys, electric blues, and what are known as “half shades.” They should avoid strong or positive colours of all kinds.

Number 5: Persons, namely, those born on the 5th, 14th, or 23rd, should wear the light shades of all colours, especially light greys, white, and glistening materials.

They should never wear dark colours if they can possibly avoid doing so.

Number 6: Persons, namely, those born on the 6th, 15th, or 24th, should wear all shades of blue, from the lightest to the dark navy, what is known as the full or real blue, not “electric blue.” For secondary colours, they can also wear shades of rose or pink, but not red, scarlet, or crimson, unless they are born between March 21st to April 24th, or between October 21st to November 24th.

Number 7: Persons, namely, those born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th, should, like the number 2 persons wear all shades of pale green, white, yellow, and gold colours. The palest possible shades are best for them, such as what are known as “pastel shades.”

Number 8: Persons, namely, those born on the 8th, 17th, or 26th, should wear all shades of dark grey, dark blue, purple, and black; light and gaudy colours are out of place with them and should be avoided.

Number 9: Persons, namely, those born on the 9th, 18th, or 27th, should wear all shades of red, rose, crimson, pink, or red purple. The darker or rich shades of these colours are best for them.

Red is the colour of the soldier, the colour of energy, restlessness, and revolution. It is the chosen colour of the Revolutionist and Anarchist; hence, the origin of the “red flag.”

On account of the magnetic rays sent off by a number 9 person, their presence often irritates people belonging to other numbers, except those born under the number 1, the 3, the 5, the 6, or their own number. People born under the other numbers are very often nervous or uncomfortable in the presence of a number 9 person.

Numbers and music show very decided affinities. The number 1, 3, and 9 persons like martial, inspiring, or what may be called “full-blooded” tones; number 2 and 7 persons are more partial to string and wind instruments, such as the violin, `cello, harp, pipes, etc.; number 7 persons like romantic, sweet music of all kinds with a hit and rhythm; number 5 persons lean towards either extremely original or unusual music, something off the beaten track. Number 4 and 8 persons, if musical, have a special leaning for the organ and make magnificent choir or choral leaders, but in all their music there is an undertone of plaintiveness, melancholy, religious fervor or fatalism.
