The 99 Gateway and Numerology of September 9

9th september spiritual meaning

Numbers hold their own vibration and every year on the ninth day of the ninth month there is a strengthening and activation of number 9 energy, creating the 99 Gateway.

In numerology, the number 9 is known as the number of endings and completions, however there is so much more to it as well.

Looking a bit deeper, the number 9 is believed to signify enlightenment and the creation of this Universe.

As Nikola Tesla once said- “If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe.” 

It may seem odd that a number could hold a key to the Universe, but if you think about it, all creation follows a numerical order.

A single cell divides into 2, then 4, then 16, and this continues until human life is created. If you look at patterns in nature, there is always mathematical symmetry and geometry.

Mathematics was not something that was invented, it was something that was discovered, and through numbers, we can actually begin to understand in a different way how this Universe was created.

The number 9 is the last single-digit number, which is why it’s synonymous with endings, but if we take all the other numbers- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 and add them all together we get 36.

If we further break this number down to find the digital root by adding the digits 3+6 we get 9.

Here, 9 represents the sum of it all. The totality of all the numbers of creation and perhaps provides the first clue of why 9 holds the key to the Universe.

When we look at a circle we know that it’s a perfect 360 degrees and when we add these digits together we get 9. We also have 1,440 minutes in a day, which also adds to 9, and we have 86,400 seconds in a day which also adds to 9.

In astrology, we also concentrate on the 9 planets of the solar system and the 36 vertices of the sacred merkaba also adds to 9.

The meaning and significance of the number 9 runs deep, it represents everything and nothing all at the same time. It is the whole circle and the empty space that is inside of it.

On the 9th day of the 9th month, we can tap into the wisdom of the number 9 and tune into its vibration. We can tune into the totality of who we are, the Universe, and the vast emptiness as well.

When emptiness is still, that is eternity. When it moves that is love.”– Adyashanti

Seeing as 2021 is a number 5 year in numerology, this year the 99 gateway holds the added vibration of 5. This is enhanced because 9 + 9 + 5 = 23, which also reduces down to 5. The number 5 represents the creative process of change.

How have you changed and shifted this year? Where have you been called to embrace the creative process of change?

Change usually requires an ending of sorts, and perhaps we are all able to see what that ending is as we reach this point in the calendar year.

What needs to end so change can begin? This is a power question or perhaps even journal prompt you can work with on this day.
