This Week's Dear Hans Reader Asked...
I am getting married on May 21, 2011. After my fiance and I chose the date, I read online it was a prophesied doomsday or something. My fiance thinks I am being silly and said he doesn't want to change the date. What do you think? My fiance's name is Evan and his birthday is 4/9/1986, and my name is Ashley, born 1/14/1984. Thank you for your time, I hope you can answer my question.
I checked some articles regarding this date, and it appears they all lead to one Christian Radio talk show host in Oakland, CA. The date is supposed to be "the end of the world." Compare that to well over a thousand dates previously established to be "the end of the world," dates that have come and gone with nary a hiccup, and I suggest we all simply ignore it and move on with our lives as, I guarantee, after some kind of excuse and justification, this talk show host will do as well on the day after doomsday. (I remember sometime in the '50s when I was a kid, thousands of gullible godly folks climbing up Mont Blanc and other mountains in France and Switzerland to escape a doomsday that promised a flood drowning everyone. It didn't happen, of course. But just to be safe, I kept a snorkel close by that whole day.)
I did prepare charts based on you and your fiance's dates of birth, as well as the Universal cycles for May 21, 2011 to see how they compare and what you can expect on and around your planned wedding day.
The Universal cycles for that day are a 4 Year, 9 Month and 3 Day. Your personal chart shows that it is a 9 Year, 5 Month and 8 Day, with a 9 Essence for you (detailed information about how these numbers are calculated can be found at decoz.com), and a 7 Year, 3 Month and 6 Day, with an 11/2 Essence for your fiance. Your fiance will undoubtedly be the one most in-tune for the event, as a 6 Day is about as harmonious as it gets whenever family, loyalty, commitment and love are the main ingredients. You, on the other hand, will be more in control and balanced, which probably surprises you. As for the Universal cycles, they are neither particularly supportive nor discordant for a wedding. The global affect of the Universal cycles on each individual is minimal, but if anything, this day enhances communication, optimism and a sunny disposition. There is absolutely nothing in that date suggesting a doomsday.
What does stand out as far as your personal cycles, Ashley, is that you are now, in late 2010, entering perhaps the most important time of your life. The changes in your personality, your outlook on life and your priorities and expectations will be significant. It is a time of transformation that will be completed around the middle of next year, and the changes are dramatic and permanent. You and your fiance are both strong-willed, as you both have a 1 Life Path. However, what makes the 1 even more dominant in your chart is that you also have been in a 1 long-term cycle since birth. This changes into a 5 cycle over the next several months, which stays in place for the next 27 years. It will make you less anxious, less competitive, less controlled, less stubborn and more adventurous, social, unconventional and adaptable. Your energy changes from linear, goal-oriented and focused to dynamic, scattered and lively. You "loosen up" quite a bit.
There is nothing wrong with the date you picked for your wedding day, Ashley, and the world will be just fine long after that day has come and gone. However, you should be aware that you, more than your fiance, go through major changes over the next 6 to 10 months. As luck will have it, your future husband is in a personal cycle that helps him to be flexible and adapt to changing circumstances, which will help. Even more fortunate in light of your transformation is the fact that around your wedding day, he will enter an 11 Essence; intuitive, finely tuned, sympathetic and very perceptive, you may end up leaning on him as your guide and advisor.
