The Zia Pueblo is one of 19 Pueblos in New Mexico, it is located 16 miles north of Albuquerque. They are a Keres speaking people.
Their symbol, a red circle with groups of rays pointing in four directions, is painted on ceremonial vases, drawn on the ground around campfires, and used to introduce newborns to the Sun.
Four is the sacred number of the Zia and can be found repeated in the four points radiating from the circle. According to the Zia’s belief, the number four is embodied in:
the 4 points of the compass
the 4 seasons of the year
the 4 periods of each day
the 4 seasons of life
– middle years
– old age
the 4 sacred obligations one must develop
– a strong body
– a clear mind
– a pure spirit
– a devotion to the welfare of others
If you are a 4 life path, you are practical, down to earth, stable and focused on the structures and foundations in your life. Four is ruled by the planet Saturn, symbolizing time, building and earth. Four is the number of fruition, the basis or manifestation of an idea. Fours want to reap tangible results, they like having power and control. They prefer reason, logic and reality over dreaming and fluidity. Fours are patient, steadfast and reliable.
Fours dig problem – solving, justice, the methodical approach and above all, honesty. They possess rare discipline and perseverance, they are responsible and diplomatic, traditional and courageous. Their weaknesses are being too rigid and reluctant to change. Once committed to a goal, they are relentless in the pursuit of it, they do not give up.
Buddhists recognize the Four Noble Truths.
The Four Humors are the metabolic agents in the human body.
The Four Elements that constitute all matter are Fire, Earth, Air and Water.
If you live in a four house, you can count on stability and structure.
If you don’t have a four house, and want one – write the number to add to your house number that will equal four in your doorjam. For example: if you live at 22 Jump street you are set, as 2+2 = 4. If you live at 12 Jump street, write “1” inside your doorjam.
Quickie numerology rundown is here.
I grew up on rural route 4 and I loved it. Once we moved to a 32, (5) all hell broke loose. Screaming and fighting 24/8, it sucked. I live in a 7 now and am mystical gung ho spiritual hermit jedi chick.
I wrote the symbol for Jupiter, which also happens to resemble a 4 on my doorjam, giving me a master number 11- illumination, inspiration and intuition.
Oh yeah, and King of Wands, lol ! . . . (wave, wink xo) . . . hopefully some Jupiterian good luck will rub off on me ! Eleven is the higher octave of 2, it brings balance to the force.
namaste and May the Force be with You . . .
