Sequential dates have always fascinated people. Last year, the world went crazy for 12th December 2012, i.e. 12/12/12, before that it was 11/11/11, and this year too, the fascination with sequential dates continues. As the world rushes to get married on the auspicious day of 11/12/13, the last date in the century when consecutive numbers would be appearing in a date, let's find out if it is really worth the hype.
This is what Astroyogi astrologers have to say about the iconic date. Number 11 is considered very special in Numerology. While all two digit numbers are generally reduced to a one digit number by adding the digits, 11 and 22 are barred from this general rule. This special status has been attached to these numbers for a reason. Unlike other numbers, the number 11 has two same digits, because of which it is associated with deep spiritual meanings. Number 12 is also a very spiritual number. It is associated with the qualities of wisdom and knowledge. In the Bible, the number 12 is mentioned several times-the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 apostles. The city of heaven also has 12 gates, the walls of which are adorned with 12 precious stones and 12 is also the number of fruits that the tree of life yields. Number 13 is not considered an unlucky number by many. But, this does not diminish the significance of this special date. December 11, 2013 is Margasira Shukla Navami, a highly auspicious day for new ventures and marriages according to the Panchangam. Moreover, 2013, adds up to 6, which is considered one of the most auspicious single digit numbers.
11/12/13 is not the only fascinating date to enthrall the world in recent times and nor is it going to be the only special date in the future. Read on to know the peculiar dates of recent times and the future.
