Early Wednesday morning, thousands of couples around the world got married on 12-12-12 or December 12, 2012. In addition, c-sections were scheduled on this day, and gamblers have headed to Las Vegas and Atlantic City to try their luck. Millions of people around the world believe that this is the luckiest day of the year.
Having the three numbers in a date aligned doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it creates an International buzz. The numbers aligned on 9-9-09, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 and the next time won’t be until Jan. 1, 3001, or 1-1-1.
Numerologists have also jumped in on the action to express what they think about it. Underwood Dudley, the author of Numerology and a retired professor of mathematics said this about 12-12-12:
It’s just a cute day. Maybe we ought to look out for the end of the world. Other than that, it’s just a number. The delusion of numerologists is that numbers have a power over events, but they don’t. Just because it’s 12-12-12 doesn’t mean anything will happen. It would happen anyway.
Scott Petullo is a numerologist and a handwriting expert and he said:
There is a lot of talk about 11-11-11 and 12-12-12 and the Mayan calendar. People are under the false impression that we will ascend into a new age. I don’t think that happens. It’s a doorway to a different dimension, but it doesn’t erase the self-karma you still have to work through.
We are getting used to that energy. Things are starting to have more clarity. More optimism is coming in. I think in the long term, this country is very optimistic.
