Destiny Number 9
People have many numbers floating around in their numerology charts. Two important numbers in a chart are the life path and destiny numbers. The destiny number basically enhances the life path number (i.e. one’s life purpose or reason for coming into this reality).
The number 9 is all about our relationship with mankind. The destiny number 9 points to people who are more mental and spiritual than emotional or physical, using their optimistic outlook and understanding to impact humanity.
The number 9 is philosophical and sophisticated, and while empathetic and compassionate, the reverse can be true if one feels threatened or victim to an injustice.
The Meaning of the Number 9
The number 9 is more feminine than masculine, as it is so understanding and caring of others (even those one has never met). The number 9 is not a natural leader (like the masculine numbers 1 and 8), but it will lead when it is necessary.
The number 6 (the reverse of 9) concerns harmonious relationships with people close to us, and while the number 9 is concerned with harmonious relationships, this desired harmony is not limited to any one person or group of people. A relationship with humanity in general is one of the most indicative qualities of the number 9.
The number 9 is about self-awareness, global consciousness, and it is perhaps the most tolerant and accepting of all the single-digit numbers.
Although one of the more compassionate numbers, the number 9 indicates a tendency to be aloof, separated from people (personally) in order to protect the self from heartache or appearing vulnerable.
Some negative powers of the number 9 include arrogance or being too cold or cruel. The number 9 may change its attitude from empathetic and understanding to apathetic and unforgiving if it is felt that wrongdoings are under way.
Since the number 9 always completes a cycle (bringing it back to 0), it is often indicative of the final stage, the completion of something.
Often, the number 9 is associated with death, but it is not always so (e.g. something can be in the final stages without coming to such an immediate and finite end).
The number 9 is concerned with transformation, rebirth. In a nutshell, the number 9 is about caring for and understanding mankind, offering its wisdom as well as its compassion.
Those with 9 as a Destiny Number
Those with prominent (and well-supported) 9s in their numerology charts tend to others with an understanding nature, looking to care for everyone (if it can be afforded). They possess such understanding and compassion for others that material possessions and status mean very little to them.
Those with the destiny number 9 tend to question religions, aiming to find true spirituality instead of something materialistic or artificial. People with 9 as a destiny number tend to be creative, and they have a deep appreciation for beauty. They are interested in healing or defending nature as well as people.
Since those with a destiny number of 9 tend to recover from hardship, they can forget that others may not bounce back so quickly.
Those with prominent 9s are seen as self-sustaining and tend to do things on their own, avoiding asking for help at all costs. This is perhaps why they need to learn to receive help as well as give it away.
The destiny of one with an expression number of 9 is to achieve a higher state of consciousness or awareness; part of that destiny is concerned with helping others to do the same. The number 9 can be an intimidating one, meaning that individuals may need to bend to the needs of others to avoid conflict.
