It turns out that our birthdays can reveal a lot about us. For thousands of years, astrologers and numerologists put forward the idea that our birth date has meaning, but it was only recently that science began to catch up and prove the idea. The following will explore some of the things that your birth date can divulge about you.
The Season You Were Born In Influences Your Personality Because Of Vitamin D Levels
Let’s start with the broadest element of your birth date, shall we? While astrology reveals aspects about you based on the position of the planets and constellations, and numerology reveals information about you based on the numerical values associated with your name and birthdate, the season you were born in also affects you. One of the major reasons for this is the amount of vitamin D available to your mother during different stages of her pregnancy. Vitamin D comes from the sun’s rays. Understandably, more vitamin D is available during the sunnier seasons like spring and summer than in winter and autumn as the sun is closer to the earth.
Third Trimester Vitamin D
Studies have shown that children born in the summertime tend to be more cheerful. They have a reduced risk of several diseases, including cardiovascular and reproductive disorders as well as asthma and ear infections. They are, however, more likely to have short-sightedness. The high level of vitamin D provided in the third trimester of pregnancy is believed to cause this.
Beyond this, the early weeks of the infant’s life are when the newborn’s circadian rhythm (or biological clock) is programmed. This cycle is what regulates things like hormones, appetite, and rest cycles. Summer babies use the summer’s light cycle with more daylight hours and fewer nighttime hours.
Second Trimester Vitamin D
Children born in the autumn and wintertime tend to have higher IQs and are often taller than if they were born in another season. This is because the high dose of summer vitamin D that occurs during the mother’s second trimester occurs when the bones and neurological functions are developing. It also influenced the infant’s development of psychomotor skills.
First Trimester Vitamin D
Spring babies tend to be more creative, have more robust immune systems, and have higher heart problem rates. Due to the biological clock factors mentioned above, spring babies are less likely to develop mental health conditions. This includes seasonal affective disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
The Structure Of The Education System Works With Birthdates To Influence Personality
The school system has done a lot to mess up children in our history, but this element seems to be a genuine accident. The school year you were grouped into can have a significant impact on your personality. School years are calculated based on birth years, meaning that all the kids born in 1992 were in the same grade. It also means that kids born at the beginning of the year are sometimes an entire year older than kids in their class. Likewise, the kids born at the very end of the year are interacting and competing with kids that are sometimes a year older than them. In our thirties, a year doesn’t make a big difference, but when you’re seven? That’s a huge advantage or disadvantage.
Children Born At The Beginning Of The Year
Kids born at the beginning of the year tend to be more athletic when they’re young and old. When they began school at the age of six, they were healthy, taller, stronger, faster, and more coordinated than the other kids. Thus, when they played sports, they won more often and, therefore, developed the idea that sports were fun.
Children Born At The End Of The Year
The kids born at the end of the year can be a year younger than their classmates. This means that they sometimes have a more challenging time sitting still or concentrating for the same length of time as the older kids and are disproportionately diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. Because of this, they tend to find a school and traditional institutions less enjoyable and often overcompensate by pursuing artistic, creative, or non-traditional endeavours.
The above information should have given you a lot to think about when it comes to your birthday. Studies have even gotten so specific as to breakdown personality traits month-by-month. Feel free to use all of this data in discussions with your anti-astrology and anti-numerology friends. You can even pass along the links to the studies we’re going to cite. This being said, do your best to avoid aggressive debates or arguments. Remember, everyone is on their own path. Be like Alan Watts and let the muddy water clear by leaving it alone.
