Numerology Insights: the Magic of the Number 9

Is the number 9 appearing to you in dreams or your waking life? Or maybe you’re navigating a nine life path or a nine month in numerology. Let’s float up to cloud 9 to discover the meaning of the number 9.

The Meaning of 9

In Numerology, the number 9 really does have it all — all the lessons, wisdom, human experiences and every number that came before it (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45, and 4 + 5 = 9).

Naturally, nine is wise beyond its digits. Like the legendary Jedi Master, Yoda, from Star Wars, nine is the keeper of sacred wisdom and power. From her deep well of intuitive insights, nine unlocks the mysteries of the Universe.

And the proof is in the numbers. Nine is made up of the sacred trinity (3 + 3 + 3 = 9), the ultimate combo for spiritual power.

The nine energy stream is also tolerant, compassionate and loving, instilling a sense of trust and safety. Naturally, nine has a “humanitarian” vibe, and may be guilty of over-giving. Just like its shape, the number 9 is a benevolent well of gifts with its generous downward spout.

This “Mother Theresa” number is a champion for human rights, healing victims of injustice with her divine leadership skills. And absolutely zero credit needed! This old soul heals out of the goodness of her big heart.

But, sadly all good things eventually come to an end. The number 9 also represents endings and death. However, while a cat may have only nine lives, the number 9 has infinite. When one ending… well ends, something new is born. And surrendering to the process puts the nine one step closer to mastery on the path to self-development.
