Chinese Numerology and Unusual Dates in Feng Shui
I often receive emails from friends with very good intentions informing me of an upcoming, very rare date that supposedly has important significance in Chinese Numerology and Feng Shui.
For instance, I’ve seen these emails for 8/8/08, 1/1/11, and today, 11/11/11. We will undoubtedly get the same on 12/12/12.
I have also seen emails about how certain months will have five Saturdays, five Sundays, and five Mondays.
Of course, if you forward the email, you will be blessed with fortune.
So, is all of this true?
Let me start by reminding everyone that the Ancient Chinese did not use the Gregorian calendar (the one that says that today is 11/11/2011).
Rather, they used a lunisolar calendar sometimes called the Huang Di calendar, akin to the Hebrew and Hindu calendars (some variations might be called Lunar, Chinese, Vietnamese, or Korean calendars).
There is the very simple fact that the Ancient Chinese, the same ones that played a significant role in developing the understanding of Feng Shui and Chinese Numerology over so many centuries, could not have analyzed the Gregorian calendar.
If any of the above dates (or any future ones you receive in an email) happen to be special based upon Chinese Numerology, you can rest assured that it is by mere coincidence.
Regarding the five Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays in a month, you should know that Feng Shui and Chinese Numerology have nothing to say about this simply due to the fact that every lunar month is exactly 28 days or 4 weeks.
Moving on, let’s talk about the fact that such an occurrence is really not that rare.
Not So Rare
As an example, take the fact that August in the Gregorian calendar always has 31 days and a week always has seven days. Therefore, that month will always have five Saturdays, five Sundays, and five Mondays any time that the month begins on a Saturday. Rather than occurring once every 800 or so years, this occurs about once every seven years and at most once every eleven years (leap years throw the regularity off a bit).
Real Chinese Numerology
Now I want to give you a much more practical uses of Chinese Numerology and numbers in Feng Shui.
If you are looking to find romance or keep a strong relationship with your spouse, be sure to place objects in your bedroom in pairs (two pillows, two candles, etc.)
If you are looking to determine if you and a prospective match are good for each other, you may be able to determine your compatibility based upon your birth dates.
Moreover, if you are looking to see your child’s fortune in his or her different life phases, you may be able to do so based upon their birth date and time.
