By carefully examining the philosophy and many other sciences and studies that were conducted on the topic of believing in destiny, and fate in general (we are aware that this topic is much more complicated than this, but we will simplify it now, because we are focusing on the belief in astrology and zodiac signs), we could say that the entire Eastern civilisation is oriented towards “trust in destiny”. And if you look at the West, you could notice that there is a belief that we should only trust in ourselves and freedom of choice, we are the tailors of our fate. But on both sides, you could see some interest in the “stars” and celestial bodies and what they have to say or to be more specific how they influence us in many ways than one. Astrology and Zodiac signs can vary from one side to another (from West to East), in a sense that there are different fundamental principles in everything, and in this topic also.
So, we always start from the astrology of the East or West, and within it, we differentiate astrology that then belongs to a particular people or region. But one thing that is similar in most of the countries and civilisations around the world is our birthdate, and there are many related interpretations of its characteristics, features, good and bad sides; its numerological symbolism, etc. Of course, that information is often combined with ruling Zodiac/some another sign depending on what country we are talking about, and then you get with the complete picture. In this particular article, we are talking about birthdate April 26.

Symbols, Colors, Lucky numbers
The number 8 and planet Saturn rules persons born on April 26, and if we translate this information from its numerological and symbolical meanings, we can say that people who are under the influence of the numeral 8 build their lives and everything that exists in it slowly and cautiously.
Saturn as a ruling planet brings them a strong sense of responsibility, a tendency to limitation, and fatalism. Conservative tendencies of persons born this day due to the influence of Saturn can only be enhanced. Although the nature of this person who is born on the April 26 is very hot and open, the number of people who rule number eight, Saturn brings a cold and discredited outer space. Because of the combination of Saturn and Venus that is a planet in charge for all Tauruses people, this person can have many disappointments and difficulties in love, as we already address this question in the previous section where we spoke about love compatibility of this person.
All in all, they are blessed with many amazing traits, in every aspect, but as you know their ruling number 8 is a carrier of strong energy that has to be directed in the right direction, or it will become destructive energy.
Their number is 12, and their color is black.
