A wedding is a joyous event that portends hope and celebrates a couple’s commitment to each other, something that is a foundation of family and society.
And certainly, after what’s already been a long and difficult beginning of 2011, having that one bright spot on April 29, 2011 at 11:00 am to hang our collective hopes on is something worth celebrating.
But what’s more than just a celebration of this couple, is the feng shui that surrounds them.
Like the couple themselves, this is a union of yin and yang, of positive and negative, of hopes and worries. To start with the date of the wedding is a fascinating one. April 29th is an eleven day. This is arrived at by adding the two plus nine together. This gives us the number 11.
In numerology and feng shui, the number 11 is called a master number because it is a source of illumination and those born on the 11th day or the 29th may be called to be of service in some grand way or inspire large numbers of people. Certainly, the wedding of Kate and William is expected to have over two billion viewers and that number of people in itself is inspiring.
The number 11 is represented by two single numbers that add up to two, although in feng shui and in numerology, an eleven is never added together. Nevertheless, this marriage of two single people will make a larger union once they have been married and the date certainly points to this.
The time of the ceremony is 11 am. The wedding time is also important and is also an 11. The time of the ceremony echoes the number of people (2) and the date, making this time especially potent and important. This is a couple that will be able to effect many changes and have a great deal of influence in the coming years.
They will change the monarchy and the way royalty are viewed and perceived, and will usher in a sense of calmness and leadership about the importance of love and respect for a loving union over a union for the sake of an heir and that transcends maintaining the royal lineage, something few people can relate to. Rather than a crown on head, their union puts love on the throne again.
She is an earth person, grounded and reliable. She will become the rock that anchors William’s life – and certainly she has already. She will provide that steady hand and outlook but will appeal to him with logic and clear-headedness. Her success comes from her ability to be a grounding force that magnetizes, even unites, opposites and helps to subdue dissension. The fact that she is a commoner might just be the common sense the royal family has lacked for so long.
William is a fire element person with a love of enjoying himself, yet he inspires Kate and makes her laugh. He will be a good husband for her and an ardent supporter within the family. His fire element will illuminate new ways of being royal but without sacrificing the family name. He will be keenly aware of his role in society and his lineage, yet also aware of his role of husband and father and how that is viewed symbolically in England and elsewhere in the world.
