Dressed to the nines is one thing.

Living in a 9 is another.

Words speak. So do numbers.

Numbers and numerology fascinate. Numerology’s not simply a matter of 1, 2, 3. Like astrology, it’s multilayered, intense, complex and complicated.

I’ve enormous respect for masters of numerology. And, in my humble opinion, none is finer than Glynis McCants. None more masterful or aware of the meaning and power of numbers in our world and universe. It’s no wonder she’s so well known and extremely highly regarded from coast to coast — and Coast to Coast, that night radio show on which she regularly appears. ūüôā

However, this writing isn’t about Master Numbers Lady Glynis McCants or numerology as a whole. It’s because I noticed something … peculiar? … coincidental? … or maybe not so coincidental around numbers.

Before I get to that, a quickie preface about¬†numerology: Your name means something — and to a masterful numerologist, it means a ton, like your birth chart¬†to an astrologer.

What’s in a Name? A ton actually. Web sites abound where you can enter your full birth name and a computer will calculate¬†your fundamental¬†expression¬†number, which is derived from numbers assigned to each letter of the alphabet and hence¬†your name. (It can also be done manually but the computer’s way faster! ūüôā ) I like Paul Sadowski’s site¬†because it’s simple yet not overly¬†simplistic.

My expression number is 9. Again, whatever your number, there are oodles and oodles of sites, articles, books that’ll plunge into its¬†meaning.

The glorious and intelligent Glynis McCants briefly sums up the 9:

“NINES¬†are the natural leader. People assume they are in charge even if they are not. If in a department store, people think they work there. {editor’s note: I cannot recount how many times this has happened!!!!!}

“They take care of everyone else but need to learn to speak up when they need help, love, and hugs. 9s often feel unloved or abandoned by their mother or father, or they feel completely responsible for them. It’s hard for them to let go of the past.”

Every single word of that’s true. Every. One. Curious about yourself? The numbers lady’s here … while this page¬†guides you in the simple calculation of your birth path, also of primary¬†importance.

What’s Your ‘Tude, Dude?

I also¬†have an attitude number of 9 … a number¬†derived by adding the birth month and date (no year) and reducing into a single digit. So if you’re born Dec. 25, it’d derive¬†thusly: 12 + 25 = 37. Then 3 + 7 = 1. Thus your life attitude number is¬†1.

And the 9 attitude according to Ms. McCants:

“The 9 Attitude: The 9 is the leader. At work they’ll not just do their job but everyone else’s. That’s the Attitude Number 9: show me what to do, I’ll do it. When it’s over, they’re exhausted and drained, but rarely allow themselves to tell the people responsible.

“They need to establish boundaries so that they will not feel depleted by the people in their life.The Attitude Number 9 may have old family pain that haunts them, and the 9 must work through these emotions in order to be happy today.”

Oh. My. God. Frighteningly. Accurate! (ESPECIALLY the family pain and proclivity to overwork myself in slave labor into death.)

Where’s Your Crib?

Like individuals, spaces have their numbers too. Your numerical address matters — and it’s calculated no differently. Say you’re at 1435 Green Street. 1 + 4 + 3 + 5 = 13. Then 1 + 3 = 4. So your address is a 4 and thus carries the positives and negatives of the 4 vibration. (Each number 1-9 has its positive and negative sides but that’s a whole other topic!)

Depending on your individual numbers — birth path, expression, like I said, it gets quite¬†complex — that address can be helpful or toxic.

If ¬†there’s an apartment number, that matters even more.

Mine’s the¬†Nines

As both my expression and attitude numbers, 9 figures prominently.

In uber-simplest terms, 9 is the compassionate old soul, the humanitarian, the teacher, the sage, the embracer of all. On the downside, the 9 carries and family pain and baggage. They haunt. Working through and letting go of the past are challenges.

Now to the clincher / climax. My first address in my new town is a 9.

I moved because my roommate assaulted me. Family history, familiar pattern. A 9 theme.

My next (and current) address: 9.

Moreover, my apartment number: also 9.

This place from the get-go has been about and brought forth deep painful issues from the past and family. Once again, and after only a couple months, I have to move for unjust and hurtful/hurting reasons. The past haunting.

Two residences and three 9s in four months.

That’s astounding! If not also a little spooky. Even for me, who backs away from believing in anything until it’s proved — repeatedly! Though not a native of the Show-Me state of Missouri, I very easily coulda been! Repetition catches my eyes. Ditto flukes. Ditto synchronicities. Sumthin’s going on with the 9.

Moving Forward

Literally. I’m lookin’ for a new place to live and now paying heed¬†to the address. If it reduces to a 9, keep on movin’, I’m thinkin’. {Not that I’d avoid looking at the place; however, the cautiousness would be acute if the place showed promise.}

So that’s the skinny on the 9s.

Oh! I just flashed on a former residence 2008-2011 in Washington state, by far the most nightmarish of adulthood residences. One guess the address.

One guess … and for me¬†perhaps yet another compelling¬†reason to steer clear? We shall see as the search for a space not dressed to the nines proceeds.
