As today is such a momentous and historic day in the UK with the wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton, I did not want the day to pass without a mention of the wedding in my weekly column. Although a large part of my life is taken up with the study and promotion of Feng Shui I also have a keen interest in Numerology and run a number of courses on the subject. In a slight change this week in addition to my weekly blog full of Feng Shui tips I thought I would also share some of my personal thoughts with you on William and Catherines life path numbers and what they show life has in store for them.
The study of numerology shows us that our personal numbers are derived from a variety of different calculations. In this brief article I am going to cover just a couple of these and look at William and Catherines life path numbers derived from their dates of birth to show what this year and the next few years have in store for them as a married couple. I hope you find the article interesting and it encourages you to begin to look at your own personal numbers to gain a greater understanding of your life.
Lets start by looking at William and Catherines life path numbers. Life path numbers are derived from your birth day, birth month and birth year added together and reduced to a single digit, unless the numbers add up to what are known as the master numbers of 11 or 22. Master numbers are fairly unusual and tend to signify a higher level of intuition and knowledge in those that are born under them. Life Path numbers show your path through life, what some people call your destiny. William was born on 21st June 1982 and Catherine was born on 9th January 1982. This means that Williams life path number is the master number 11, no surprise there for our future king ( 2 + 1 + 6 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 2 = 29, 2 + 9 = 11) and Catherines life path number is 3 ( 9 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 2 = 30, 3 + 0 = 3).
Those with the master number 11 often possess extreme characteristics, they are visionarys often ahead of their time and make great natural leaders. They can inspire people with their knowledge and their humanity and are often extremely generous and kind hearted. Highly intuitive with an unerring ability to know exactly how to motivate people they are remembered by those people they come in to contact with and can make a real difference to peoples lives. For all these qualities however 11s often come to prominence later in life, usually after the age of 36. Their development to greatness and to leadership often takes a slow path and for this 11s can demonstrate melancholy and frustration in their early years as they feel that something is missing in their lives. For those like William who have 11 as their life path number their destiny is to be a strong and powerful leader, to inspire others and to touch the hearts of those they come in to contact with, great qualities for a future king in fact.
Catherines life path number is a 3 and those with a life path number of 3 tend to be great communicators and extremely artistic. Indeed many 3s end up as artists, actors, musicians or teachers. 3s are social butterflies, often gregarious and extroverted and light up any room that they enter. As a natural communicator 3s can reach out to people, inspiring them to make a difference and change the way they look at life. 3s also possess a great sense of empathy and humility and so make excellent listeners and counsellors. On the downside the creative and quick witted 3 can be flippant, distracted and not very organised. A 3s destiny is often to live a life of happy chaos, highly thought of , looked up to and well loved by those who know them
As a couple, and a couple that will live their life very much in the spotlight William and Catherines life path numbers show that they complement each other perfectly. Williams natural leadership and great humanity which will develop even further over the next 10 to 20 years and Catherines natural sparkle and powerful communication style means that as a couple they will inspire people across the globe. Expect great things and a number of changes from this couple as they move through life.
Moving on from their life path numbers let us now look at what this year and the next few years has in store for them. To get William and Catherines personal year forecasts you take their birth day and birth month and add it to the current year. This means that William born on the 21st June has a personal year number of 4 ( 2 + 1 + 6 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 1 = 13, 1 + 3 = 4) and Catherine (birthdate 9th January) has a personal year of 5 ( 9 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 1 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5). A 4 personal year is a good year for building a solid structure and foundation for the future, to start looking for greater security in your life, a good year in fact to get married. Whether William knew this when he decided to ask Catherine to marry him last year is unclear but the omens for William are excellent. He couldnt have picked a better time for himself to formalise this union.
For Catherine however the omens may not be quite so good. A 5 personal year is often a year of great change and in a 5 personal year you should really expect the unexpected. This suggests that while Catherine having lived with William for the past few years may expect life to go on much as before once she becomes his wife things may change much more than she expects. The next few months may well be rocky and she may start to have doubts about the life she has committed herself to.
Looking longer term the numbers show that both William and Catherine will be entering a period of change over the next two to three years. The next two to three years will not be plain sailing for this newly wed couple and they will both need to make a number of adjustments if they are to be happy. Fortunately their life path numbers show that both have amazing compassion, the ability to read and understand the needs of other people and strong communication skills. Providing they are given space, they talk to each other and they are there for each other there then any doubts they may both have will be overcome by 2014 and as their life path numbers show it is then that they will start to become a strong and inspirational couple.
