# Numerology: 9

9 is a sophisticated and take charge number, yet is also is a number of social good, humanitarianism and the terms karma and spiritual often used.

**9: Both Assume Leadership and Spiritual**

9s are take charge people who assume they are in control whether that is true or not. We all have that friend who is often assumed to be in charge. They may even be approached in stores by people who assume they work there. This person may be you!

**9s Take Charge!**

9s do not wait for permission. They assume control!

This is displayed by the following mathematical property: Multiply any number by 9, reduce the number to a single digit, and you get 9 back. In other words, multiple any number by nine and (after reducing) you still have 9. Three quick examples – this works for all numbers:

- 9 times 8 equals 72. 7 plus 2 equals 9.
- 9 times 5 equals 45. 4 plus 5 equals 9.
- 9 times 2 equals 18. 1 plus 8 equals 9.

Wow. Multiple any number by 9 and it loses its identity – 9 takes over, it assumes control. No other number behaves like this.

**9 is also a Very Spiritual**

Note the following mathematical property: add any number to 9, reduce, and you get the original number back. Three quick examples again– and this works for all numbers:

- 9 plus 8 equals 17. 1 plus 7 equals 8.
- 9 plus 5 equals 15. 1 plus 4 equals 5
- 9 plus 3 equals 12. 1 plus 2 equals 3.

Add any number to 9, reduce, and 9 goes away! It is ethereal, spiritual, reinforcing, and karmic when used additively! There is no other number that behaves like this!

**9s are Leaders**

9s see clearly, often connecting the dots, disparate people, thoughts, and pursuits, that others can not. They are born leaders and simply assume control whether they actually have it or not.

**9 is Humanitarian and Compassionate**

A nine equals cares about their best friends, their neighbors, and people they have never met or heard about on the other side of the planet. 9s are not remotely judgmental; they accept all. Self sacrifice is common among 9s.

**Possible Downsides**

All numbers have potential weaknesses or downsides.

9s intense passion means they need to harness their often wild thoughts and impulses. 9s are not the best at completion; a new passionate pursuit often interrupts a previous one. 9s do very well with “stabilizing” people and other influences.
