- Wedding: September 2013
Congrats to all Brides to Be! I am an August 17, 2013 Bride as well! We finally decided tonight on the date. I’ve been waiting 2 months for the call back on my fiances outdoors motocross schedule to come out so we could choose our wedding on an off race weekend! I’m so excited, I even did some numerology on the numer 17. Enjoy!
the number 17, which refers to victory. Seventeen is not only a prime or indivisible number, but it is also the seventh in the series of prime numbers (i.e., 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17). The number 7 signifies completeness, which adds to the significance of the meaning of the number 17. Again, Bullinger explains (page 258): “In like manner seventeen being the seventh of the series, it partakes of and intensifies the significance of the number seven. Indeed, it is the combination or sum of the two perfect numbers―seven and ten―seven being the number of spiritual perfection, and ten of ordinal perfection. Contrasted together the significance of these two numbers is clear; and when united in the number seventeen we have a union of their respective meanings, viz., spiritual perfection, plus ordinal perfection, or the perfection of spiritual order.”
Represent the action of the evolution on the Cosmos and its tendency to the karmic liberation, 1 + 7 = 8, according to R. Allendy.
Symbol of the man participating to both worlds, celestial and terrestrial, according to Prevorst. Henry Blanquart goes in the same way telling that it “represents the junction between the material world and the spiritual world”.
About this number, saint Augustin declares: “In the number seventeen as in its multiples we find an admirable sacrament”.
Seventeen restores the harmony after the fights of the existence. It is the image of the initiate who has succeeded his interior marriage.
According to Guy Tarade, it is the number of the Holy Spirit.
According to the Book of the Balance of Jâbir Ibn Hayyân, alchimist and Sufi, the form (sura) of any thing in the world is 17; the number 17 represents the base of the theory of the Balance and has to be considered as the rule of the balance of each thing.
