Hands Holding Earth GlowingThe Life Path 9 walks the path of the sage

If you were born into this numbers vibration, you’re on a personal journey to embody the wisdom you have gathered over many lifetimes walking this Earth. Your highest path will ask you to surrender everything that doesn’t fuel your vision of the New Earth.

Life Path Number 9 – Highest Path

In Numerology, the Number 9 represents the completion of the cycles of life, and the wisdom that they bring.

As a person, you are an old soul and probably somebody that other people regard as protective and safe. You are a strong, stable and spiritual human being and carry an air of experience (even when you’re actually a complete novice at something!) This number is full of self-confidence, offering insights, advice, and guidance; and you seem to intuitively see the best next step for people to take, to reach their own next level of success. You see everybody with compassion, clearly perceiving their highest possible version – and you want them all to reach it!

You hold big visions.

You’re an idealist and see the potential before the actual… this is an incredibly positive trait and means you’re likely to be a motivating force within your communities! But at the same time, you have the practical know-how to make actual positive change. This is the work that gives your life meaning – with compassion and self-sacrifice, you, Number 9, want nothing more than to save the world.

Nines have a strong sense of justice and responsibility and a deep desire to do good in the world. You also seem to have an uncanny knack of always being in the right place at the right time, to manifest the most magical upgrades for the people around you! In fact, this number has a highly spiritual thread that runs right through it – nines are often most concerned with people, art and creativity over money, wealth and materialism, unlike some of the other numbers.

In Numerology, it’s recognized that Nines are unique in that they contain the wisdom of all other numbers combined. You have many talents and skills and a broad perspective which means you make an excellent teacher, mentor or guide. But it’s vital for you, Number 9, to learn to lead by example. People will cease looking up to you if your way is simply “Do as I say, but not as I do”. You must embody your wisdom.

Because this number closes the numerological cycle (Master Numbers not included!) 9s can often face many endings and closure in their own lives, but also struggle with them. Perhaps you are working through karmic relationship (common for Life Path 9s) and need to let go of behavior patterns that are keeping you locked inside relational cycles? Or perhaps you are a hoarder, and need to face piles of belongings that you cannot let go of!

Nines can be sentimental and feel afraid to let go of the past, but also act as bridges to a brand new future.

This gives them a pivotal role as we are all moving through the current paradigm shift, and into the New Earth. Their work in the world is SO vital, so if you are a Life Path 9, you must push through your resistance and allow yourself to rise up!

Overall, the Number 9 is socially generous and altruistic. These folk want the best for humanity and will do all they can to radically improve life for us all!


Life Path Number 9 Shadows

The Life Path 9 can be as restrictive as it is expansive.

You are naturally generous and wish the world for everyone you meet! Because of your almost supernatural ability to sense what others most need to do with their lives, you can fall into the trap of giving unsolicited advice. And whilst you do this only with the best intentions, Number 9, you can step on tender toes. You must hone your senses and learn to offer guidance only when it’s requested and let people – however much it pains you – make their own mistakes.

On the other hand, your generous nature risks being taken advantage of. Unselfish and highly hospitable, you would gladly give away the shirt off your own back. But there are takers in this world, and you serve no one by perpetuating this unhealthy behavior.  You must learn when to say “no” Number 9!

There are times when your innate idealism can turn to despair. You have SUCH high hopes for the world, and believe them all possible. But you also feel deeply, so when they either fail to materialize, or people let you down you can get so disheartened, and the sorry, negative side of this number emerges.  Because of this, you must learn when your rose-tinted spectacles are serving you, and when to put them back in your pocket!

Life Path Number 9 Love, Relationships & Compatibility

Relationships with you, Number 9, are usually generous, loving and compassionate.

The uniqueness of the 9 means you have something in common with all other numbers, so it will be other factors that assert your compatibility.

You are generous and easy-going, making most relationships a breeze! You are committed and honest, but at times it’s likely your attention will be taken up with all of the other endeavors you give your precious time to. So the partner you commit to long-term will likely have to understand the many directions you find yourself pulled in, and give you the freedom you need. Likewise, you may have to learn to devote enough time and energy to that one special person, despite the myriad of altruistic and social responsibilities you hold!
