This contest is fueled by the following news: Three eights will bring success to newly-weds says astrology. As noted by an astrologer in conversation with correspondents, marriages on the 8th of August 2008, will be successful and lasting. Wealth and prosperity will accompany the married couple, although the luckiest number for marriage nevertheless is five. According to the astrologer, each number has its vibration, which gives a special sense to the number. So, 8 as also 1, 3, and 6 are considered as godly numbers, which indicate mercy, service and responsibility. People somehow connected with number 8, for example, through the date of birth or the number of a house, are altruists who contain specific mission. They are closely connected to their kind, can repeat the fate of their ancestors and even adopt hereditary diseases. The lifespan of such people is small, since they return all their energy to others, wasting them. Such people will always fight, resist evil, distributing love to the surroundings. Numerology, in terms of the numerical value of Jewish letters, defines 888 as the "Number of Jesus", in contrast to 666 "Number of the Beast". The combination of three eights belonged to the envoys of God such as Krishna, Buddha and Jesus Christ. Those born on August 8, 2008 will be inseparably connected with the society and will bring him a lot of knowledge. The continuation of this kind will be an important matter in their life. Strong intuition and deep respect for parents is a special feature of people who are born on this day. They can possess mystical capabilities. On the "three eights" - 08.08.08 day - the world is gripped with another wedding boom. And even a leap year is not a hindrance. Thousands and thousands of pairs decided to marry precisely on this day with the hope that the magic of numbers will bring happiness to them. It is considered that eight symbolizes reliability, responsibility and brings success in matters. Moreover, the number 8 is similar to the infinity sign - this promises long love and a lasting union to loved ones. And someone likes three eights to appear in the marriage certificate. According to astrologers, in this year on Friday August 8 it is found under the patronage of Venus. This planet symbolizes pleasure, feelings and material prosperity. Therefore a marriage on precisely this day must be happy. Especially it transported to the Chinese. They pay considerable attention and by respect relate to what numerology says. But the triple eight in combination with the day of the official discovery of the Olympic Games finds the almost sacred value for those inhabitants of China, who intend to enter into marriage. Today a husband and wife will become thousand and thousands of inhabitants of this country. Even Chinese old people will not recollect this many people desiring to marry during one day. On August 8, 2008, the number of marrying pairs doubled, or else tripled the normal standard. In some cities during the day of the "three eights" because of the unprecedented wedding boom of enamored ones they will marry under the open sky, in the theaters, museums and the culture houses. However, even the beautiful date in the evidence about the marriage and promises of astrologers, unfortunately, in no way can guarantee a happy and long family life. As statistics show, the tendency to shift responsibility for its family to the numbers is not justified. The statistics are severe: 2.5 percent of marriages registered on July 7, 2007, during the day "three seven", have already ended in divorce.
