Meet the Masters

Three double-digit numbers are more powerful than any others. Which ones and what do they mean? Learn all about the Master numbers here! +

Lastly, the 4. The 4 is a very rigid number, one that represents foundations. On May 21, 2011, this rigidity could be connected to God's stark criticism, and perhaps this 4 is laying the foundation now for the end that's expected in October. However, every date that falls within 2011 occurs in this 4 Year, making this a fairly moot point as the 4's influence on this specific day is quite minimal. Still, the 4 can be very strict, religiously, creating a strong divide between the believers and the non-believers.

So on this day of Rapture, God is expected to communicate (3) his opinions of every one of us to make us aware (9) of where we fall short, creating a basis (4) for the apparent end of days that follows in October. So sure, we can draw a connection between Judgment Day and the numbers of May 21, 2011, but there are two sides to every coin, and this combination of numbers could represent a wealth of situations that have nothing to do with God, Rapture, judgment or any impending doomsday. Numerologically, we can expect this day to bring inspiration, expression and optimism, with, perhaps, a bit of moodiness and scattered energy mixed in.

In fact, making a case against Judgment Day is Numerologist Hans Decoz himself, who had a doomsday experience decades ago that shaped his skepticism around end-of-the-world prophecies. "When I was about 10 or so," he says, "quite a few people in Europe believed that the day of reckoning was upon us, in the form of a flood that would drown everyone except those who made it up to the tops of the highest mountains. I remember the news reporting that hundreds of people were climbing Mont Blanc and other mountains to escape the flood. I wonder what it felt like to spend a day up there after a long climb, only to be disappointed and have to climb back down."

Yes, some believe the end is nigh, but the majority of the public expects May 21, 2011 to come and go just like any another Saturday. Again, this is not the first time Judgment Day has been predicted down to an exact date, and if history is any indication of its credibility, don't cancel your plans for May 22 just yet.
