Birth Date Puzzle—Wade Michael Page, Gunman in Sikh Temple Shooting

©8-6-2012 by Donna Cunningham, MSW

Various press sources are giving his birth date as Veterans’ Day, 1971.  This is problematic, however, because 1971 was the year when the U.S. temporarily changed Veterans’ Day from November 11 to the 4th Monday in October, and kept it that way through 1975.  Some states complied, but others kept November 11. The U.S. Army Center of Military History notes:

“1971-1975  The Federal observance of Veterans Day is held on the fourth Monday of October. Initially all states follow suit except Mississippi and South Dakota. Other states changed their observances back to November 11 as follows: 1972- Louisiana and Wisconsin; 1974- Kentucky, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Maine, South Carolina, West Virginia; 1975- California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming.’ (The History of Veterans Day – U.S. Army Center of Military History.)

Colorado is NOT on the list above, so it is ambiguous whether he was born on Veterans’ Day or not.  According to one article: Wade Michael Page Is The Suspected Wisconsin Temple Shooter“According to Texas court records, Page was born in Colorado and also used the last name Pierson.”   He also gives Colorado as his birthplace in several interviews on the internet including this one:  End Apathy ‘Skinhead’ Band: Wade Michael Page Hardcore Group … 

I’m wondering if the claim that he was born on Veterans’ Day originates with ex-soldier Page’s own publicity for his White Supremacy Rock Band, End Apathy.  In an interview he was asked where he came from, and he said Colorado.

At a press conference aired on CNN today, the Chief of Police for Oak Creek, WI John Edwards named the shooter as Wade Page and gave a date of birth in November 1971. Unfortunately, I was only half listening, having tuned in to see if they’d run film of the Mars landing.  I can’t be clear whether he said November 11 or November 1, but it sounded like November 1. I’m not alone in my confusion, as various internet reports on the conference shift back and forth between the 1st and the 11th.  However, a Veteran’s Day birth was confirmed in an article at CNN online:

“The man who shot six people to death and wounded three others during a rampage at a Sikh temple in a Milwaukee suburb was an Army veteran who may have been a white supremacist, authorities said Monday. Law enforcement officials sources familiar with the investigation named him as Wade Michael Page, 40. ….Page, born on Veterans Day in 1971, joined the Army in 1992 and left the service in 1998, according to Army Spokesman George Wright.” CNN, August 6, 2012 (Sources name suspect in deadly Sikh temple shooting.)

ASTROLOGERS AND ADVANCED STUDENTS:  Are you interested in learning how to interpret the Capricorn stelliums in the charts of vast numbers of young people born in the late 1980s-early 1990s? I’m going to be teaching an online seminar about it starting September 8th. Read about it here:

Readers: Did anyone else hear the CNN press conference, and what date did you hear?  Let us know in the comment section. 


  1. Hi Donna:
    On, there is a Wade M Page born in 11-11-71 in Texas.
    here’s the link:

    • Hi, Shelley, I tried that link and apparently got to a different part of the site than you. It didn’t have the birth date, but listed 4 Wade M. Pages, age 40, one born in Littleton, Colorado.
      It also listed 8 Wade Michael Pages, age 42. I had no idea it was such a common name. And none of them gave Texas as a birthplace. Do you have a program that takes screen shots? If so, might you do one of the record you saw?

      Lois Rodden would be spinning in her grave, with all the dirty data possibilities here!! Donna

  2. Donna, go to and input Wade Page. it will come up.

  3. hi! Just looked up the aspects for the 11th. If that’s the correct birthday he has one hell of a grand cross…including mars, saturn, neptune, etc. Also transitting neptune is conjunct his mars.

  4. Hi Donna,
    I found this wikipedia page…

    which leads to this…

    and both give his birthdate as Nov 1st.


  5. “Shooting suspect worked for Iowa trucking company”

    DesMoines posted this article

    “A representative from Barr-Nunn Transportation, based in Granger, Iowa, sent the following release Monday evening regarding Wade Michael Page’s employment history with the company. Page is believed to have opened fire at Sikh temple in Wisconsin Sunday, killing six people before being shot and killed by law enforcement officers.

    “Barr-Nunn Transportation Inc. is releasing this prepared statement as our official communication relative to media inquiries regarding Wade Michael Page.

    “A Wade Michael Page, with a birth date of November 11, 1971 and a driver’s license from Fayetteville, North Carolina, was employed at the truckload carrier firm from mid-April 2006 through August 10, 2010 as a solo driver on non-dedicated routes.

    “This driver was terminated from employment for violating the company’s driver conduct/disciplinary policy regarding impaired etc…….”

    See full article online on the one would think if the trucking company hired him the birth information was taken from his driver’s license.

    On a personal note: I greatly admire your insight and dedication to the field of astrology.

  6. Hi Donna,

    Thank you very much for your always informative articles.

    This is what I found at

    “…Cause # 940C08701 Defendant: PAGE, WADE MICHAEL DOB: 11/11/1971 Filed: 7/15/1994 Court: COUNTY COURT AT LAW NUMBER FOUR Degree: Misdemeanor..”

    If this date is correct, this shooter has a bit different motif than the previous Mars-Pluto shooters; this guy has Mars T-squaring Neptune and Saturn, with Neptune and a bunch of planets in Sage. His evolutionary lesson was to learn how to humble his ego by accepting polarities (Sage-Gemini opposition of Saturn and Neptune squaring Mars) and different religious beliefs without prejudice. He died with transiting SN conj natal Saturn-Neptune-Mars T, while Neptune is in T-square.

    South Node in transit conjoined natal Saturn.

  7. Piknics sent me the following:
    “I tried to post another message for the Sikh gunman but the system would not accept it there … so I am adding it here.
    The webpage below outlines a public statement from one of the gunman’s former employers, where he worked as a truck driver for 4 years. The transportation company cites a NC,Fayetteville driver’s license with a birthdate
    of 11 Nov 1971 for Wade Michael PAGE @40”

    Thanks to all of you for your research. I’m inclined to accept the 11/11 date. His bio does mention living in Texas and North Carolina. Donna

  8. I meant this guy, he was connected to people stocking me , we disgussed siecks, he had a 9/11 tatoe, he told me he was working for special ops, my privacey was violated for explotation, my writing stolen, my mom & sis killed.someone needs to look into these murders & connect some of the mass shooting with violation of my life.people at the shooting say he had a 9/11 tatoe, the guys corpse who was shot does not.we talked about siecks, &white power[i am jewish, irish,scotts & 1st nation]I told him sieks where not moslem, their good people{so are a lot of moslems!]this whole thing does not add up! he told me he was born on 9/11, & on veterans day,[?] he entered the army on 9/11. the 9th has special white supremacey connotations[see nov 9th Germane history}Theirs an undergroud nazi movement in prisons guards, law enforcement & black ops. Hope under torture

  9. This is the best idea for the Veterans Day and every state follow this which is very good. Birth records are also registered on that day. Wisconsin public records are also managed on that specific event. I have seen the link which has history of Veterans Day.

  10. Wade Michael Page was drunk, just like my math teacher in Moffat County. Both Page and my teacher took their own lives! My brother and I were shocked about it and the act that was selfish for doing that!
