After 823 yrs, 5 weekends this July

This July will be a little different. In fact, it is going to be a July that comes once in 823 years and bring cheer to those who look forward to weekends. July 2011 will have five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays and numerologists and astrologers say such a July is rare, as rare as once in 823 years.

But, despite being rare, it may not have too much of a numerological significance for people, says numerologist Sanjay Jumani. “It will just be fun to have more weekends as the month will have five Saturdays, five Sundays and of course five Fridays,” he pointed out. Astrologer Ajay Bhambi, too, said it was a mathematical rarity in the calendar but people should not assume there was any astrological significance.

When pointed out that Feng Shui experts predict the month lucky for people to earn money, Jumani said, “In fact this year, as I had predicted, has been expensive right from the beginning. It will be expensive even till the end. There is nothing special to more Sundays, Saturdays and Fridays. Just enjoy the weekends.”

Greenstone Lobo, another astrologer, also agreed that having more weekends does not mean any astrological affect as it is not related to planetary movement. But Lobo said the month will be good for people in India after three months of inflation, social and political upheavals. “Over the last three months venus and mars were in conjunction. This planetary phase has now ended on June 30 last month and hence going to be a very good month after a long gap,” he added, pointing out that weekends would be more enjoyable.

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
