No 2 Boy
This child has more yang energy and is the opposite of his inner focused older brother. Physically more robust his energy is more directed into his body, which can be expressed as a fiery reactive nature.
His father should not give him choices ‘Tell him what to do” and focus his energy on something concrete like sport. This boy needs to learn how to control his energy. He can often have difficulty expressing his thoughts and may react with his fists. He will have a go at anything without consideration of the consequences. This child yearns for physical contact with his father and needs his Dad to teach him how to control his inner fire. Otherwise he may be unkind to females using that aggression to make himself feel more masculine.
The role of his older brother is to teach him how to dream. The second son teaches the No1 son how to have more contact with his body.
This child’s inner virtue is “fire in the heart” and what we all need a lot more of … courage!
If the polarity in your family has shifted a No2 boy will become more “yin like” and express himself more like a No3 boy.
What we can learn from The Nature of Birth order not only helps us better understand our own children but also our siblings, family & friends.
You may by now have observed that the order moves in an alternate yin & yang position. The order is determined by the 1st born. If the first born is Yang then the 2nd child will have more Yin qualities the 3rd yang, ect. If the 1st born is in a Yin position the order will alternate 2nd Yang, 3rd Yin ect..
Remember there are 12 sibling sequences possible. It is very rare for a family today to be large enough for all 12 patterns to manifest. To understand a child in a mixed gender family first you need to establish their genetic no, then their gender no and finally look at the social influence of that particular family.
Another interesting aspect of Rayid is the important role that Grandparents play and that is what I am going to discus next month.
Warmest wishes to you all
