Numerology and Spiritual Significance of 9/9/2016

spiritual significance of 9-9-16

The 9th day of the 9th month in a number 9 year (9-9-9) is one of the most potent days in 2016 according to numerology.

This is because the number 9 is said to represent endings and a time of clearing out the old so the new can emerge.

Number 9 is also said to represent an increase in universal awareness and a time where truth and information is to be revealed for the higher good.

This theme has been running through the entire year, however on September 9th the energy is set to be amplified as the 9-9-9 gateway opens. 

Whatever needs to be cleared, whatever needs to be released and let go of is likely to be brought to our attention during this time. This is also especially true due to the fact that September also brings a potent eclipse cycle. 

The most potent of these eclipses is will fall on September 16th and this is set to truly amplify and highlight all that we need to let go of in order to move forward. 

Of course, this is not an immediate or sudden process. In fact, it is likely that whatever we have needed to shed this year, whatever we have needed to kill off or burn, has been something we have been dealing with for quite some time.

September 9th is simply going to highlight this energy and allow us the opportunity to release all that we need to in order to move forward.

This month may also bring some new information to the surface, which should help us to wade through a situation to determine fact from fiction. 

Because September is all about releasing, old fears may also come up for questioning. If this happens, be mindful of acting or reacting in the same old way using the same old limiting thoughts.

Perhaps try something different and try to see things from a different point of view. This may help you to shed and release all that you need to once and for all. 

Endings and death of habits, beliefs and ideas can be difficult and even traumatic, but it is necessary for all of us if we want to move into the new vibration or new cycle that will begin in 2017. 

2017 is a number 1 year and represents the start of a new cycle, and if we fully want to embrace and welcome in the new, we have to first release and shed the old. 


In order to fully understand and appreciate this cycle, we may have to head back to 2008, which was the start of this cycle that we are now bringing to a close in 2016. 

Perhaps think back to what you were doing at this time or what events or themes presented themselves to you during this period in your life.

Chances are, you may be wrapping up or bringing an end to the energy or journey that you started during this time. 

It could even be that you are shedding old thoughts, fears and belief systems that perhaps have now shifted or changed. You may also have a greater awareness about your life and what it is that you want to achieve. 

You can find out more specifically about how the energy of 2016 is going to affect you by working out your personal year number for 2016.

9/9/16 is such a potent and rare numerological configuration that we wont experience this energy again for another 9 years.

This means that if there is something you wish to release, if there is something that you finally or officially want to let go of, now would be the time to act. 

In fact, with the eclipses and the mercury retrograde cycle, the Universe is really supporting all of us to go within and work out once and for all what we need to release in order to move forward. 

If you have been wearing a heavy coat of burdens, if you have been stuck in a cycle of repetitive thought, if you have been sabotaging your efforts, take the time to think about letting it all go. 

September is an extremely potent month and chances are you will have to do little in order to truly see where you are heading and where the Universe may be guiding you to go. 

The 9-9-9 gateway energy will be with us for most of September, so go with the flow and see what manifests for you this month. 

“999 is a message signifying completion of an important chapter in your life…this number sequence is like an alarm clock, ringing loudly to jolt you into working on your life’s purpose”- Doreen Virtue
