Ever wondered why some marriages are successful while the rest flounder and fail? Or why marriage is smooth-sailing for some but hard labor for others?
Marriage is more than picking the right partner. One of the most influential factors affecting its success and failure is the wedding date itself.
Surprised? It’s true, though you may consider it unfair.
Some dates are believed to be unlucky in marriage numerology.
When you are choosing the wedding date, you have so many constraints to think of. Such as the availability of the wedding venue and your favorite caterer or the convenience of close family and friends, besides that of your partner’s and yours. Additional restrictions on the wedding dates are bound to make it tougher.
It would be like playing golf on a course filled chock-a-block with hazards of every possible kind. The word ”unfair” doesn’t do justice to the description at all.
With all these limitations, you may find it impossible to pick a date for the most important day of your life. However, you don’t have a choice in the matter; you just have to do it.
This may make you wonder – “Is it hocus pocus? “How can my wedding date make or mar my life?”
Whether you believe in numerology or not, it will play a role in your life. So, why not understand how it works and make the most of the knowledge to avoid pitfalls?
This article will take you through the details of how numerology works and how you can use it to avoid picking the wrong dates for your wedding.
How does numerology interpret numbers?
Numerology is a system that uses your birthdate to predict your future. Every date can be reduced to a single-digit number, which is then used to calculate the compatibility of couples as well as the suitability of their wedding dates.
When you are using numerology to find your lucky wedding dates or those to avoid, you need to begin with your life path number.
How to calculate your life path number?
Calculating your life path number is simple enough. You can use this formula.
Your life path number = month of birth + date of birth + year of birth
Whenever you have a two-digit number for the date or month, you can add up the digits until you arrive at a single digit. For the year, you need to consider all four digits. Again, add up the digits again and again to get a single digit.
This example may make it easier for you to understand.
If your birthdate is December 18, 1993, your life path number is 7. And, this is how the calculation goes:
Month: December is 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
Date: 18 = 1 + 8 = 9
Year: 1993 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 3 = 22 = 2 + 2 = 4
Life path number = month + date + year = 3 + 9 + 4 = 16 = 1 + 6 = 7
Now, you need to find out your partner’s life path number the same way. If it is October 12, 1990, the corresponding life path number would be 5.
When considering dates for your wedding you should also calculate the numerology number for the date. If you want to get married on Valentine’s Day of 2022, one of the most popular wedding dates, its numerology number would be 4. The calculation is the same as described for the life path number, adding the month, date, and year to arrive at a single-digit number.
You can also find the ideal numerology number for lucky wedding dates for a couple. Known as marriage number, this is calculated by adding the life path numbers of the partners.
From the example given above, marriage number = 5 + 7 = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
Now that you have all the numbers ready. Let’s see what we can do with them.
How to use numerology to figure out compatibility?
Your life path number is 7.
Your partner’s life path number is 5.
The marriage number for both of you is 3.
And the numerology number for the wedding date chosen (February 14, 2022) is 4.
Couples with life path numbers 5 and 7 are destined for long and happy married life. This combination can complete each other and live up to each other’s needs and expectations. Romance and mutual attraction will be in the air right from the beginning. However, along the path, you may face some minor troubles which will be easily overcome with love and commitment.
With that part cleared, let’s move on to the wedding date.
Consider marriage number 4. Choosing a date with numerology number 4 would be ideal. Or else, you can also go in for a date with a numerology number equal to the life path numbers of both partners. Here it is 5 and 7. This means wedding dates totaling 4, 5, and 7 are the best suited for the couple.
However, if you want to find the suitability of Valentine’s Day for your wedding, you need to go a bit deeper into numerology.
Numerologists tell us that the dates 5, 14, and 23 (if you haven’t noticed yet, they add up to 5) are unlucky and unsuitable for weddings. These dates remain the same every month. So, there go your Valentine’s Day dreams out of the window.
The first and 9th of every month are the safest and lucky dates to choose for the wedding. This calculation holds for all couples. If you are choosing the first or 9th day of the month, you need not bother about your birth dates for calculating life path numbers, marriage numbers, or check the numerology number for the date chosen. On the other hand, the 4th of every month is not good to schedule your wedding.
Another set of dates to avoid getting married is a date that is a combination of 5 and 7. Such as 05/07/2022 or 07/05/2022.
Again, marriage dates with numerology number 7 are not good. But the dates 07, 16, and 25 are alright as long as the birthdates of your partner or you do not fall on the same.
Why should you avoid some dates for your wedding?
Now that you know some numerology rules for choosing or avoiding wedding dates, you must be wondering what is wrong with some dates and why others are good.
You must have decided to marry your partner because you love them very much and want to spend the rest of your life with them. You must be looking forward to raising a family together.
However, some dates do not augur well for a long-lasting, happy marriage. Here are some problems that can crop up in your marriage if you happen to wed your partner on such ill-fated dates.
- You may end up in a long-distance relationship, which doesn’t make sense in the long run.
- You may have trouble getting pregnant and having children for a long time.
- You may face financial woes that can create fissures in the marriage.
- Many of these troubles may push you away from each other and you may end up getting a divorce.
Besides the 1st and 9th of every month, a date with its numerology number equal to your marriage number is ideal for your wedding date. If you are choosing any other date, numerologists advise you to proceed with caution.
You may be feeling overwhelmed by all this information, especially if you don’t believe in it. Before you go ahead and decide on a date for your wedding, just consider this. You are going to spend the rest of your life with this person and you definitely don’t want anything to go wrong.
So, why take a chance? Put in that extra effort to find a numerologically-safe wedding date for a lifetime of happiness.
