THE NUMBER 9
The Number 9 vibrates to the planet Mars. It represents aggressive action, penetration, courage, and conflict. 9 is the number of originality and initiative…also the contradictory traits of vulnerability and naivete.
A person or entity is influenced by the Number 9 if born on the 9th, 18th, or 27th day of any month, in any year. People or entities born on the 9th are stamped with the distinct imprint of the Number 9. So are those born on the 18th and 27th day of the month, but these will, in addition, be challenged to unlock the karmic mystery of the Compound number 18 or 27, as the case may be, in their lives. The same is true of the Single and Compound number of the name of the person or entity being analyzed.
The Number 9 characteristics and attitudes will be periodically exhibited by the 9 person or entity, and will interact with that person's or entity's personality in different ways, depending on the individual Sun Sign.
When the Sun Sign is:
ARIES: The 9 vibration intensifies the Sun Sign personality traits.
LIBRA: The 9 vibration sometimes opposes the Sun Sign motives, but, with effort, can be used to balance the Sun Sign nature.
LEO, GEMINI, SAGITTARIUS, AQUARIUS: The 9 vibration harmonizes well with the Sun Sign character, motives, and personality patterns.
CAPRICORN, CANCER, TAURUS, VIRGO, SCORPIO, PISCES: The 9 vibration is in sharp contrast with the basic Sun Sign instincts. When it surfaces on occasion in the personality, the behavior is so unusual, relative to the person's normal Sun Sign attitudes, it startles others, and often surprises the Number 9 person as well.
The Meaning of the 9 vibration
The following definition of Number 9 applies to both people and entities. 9 people are not stubborn, but they are determined to get what they want, and there is a difference. Stubbornness reacts and determination initiates. 9 brings a tendency to be impulsive and make snap decisions, later regretted. Although the temper will flare rather frequently, these people are quick to both forgive and forget an injury. They're vulnerable to their enemies because their first instinct is to trust everyone. Since they're so direct themselves, they expect others to be the same--and others often are not. Deviousness and manipulation always come as a shock to 9 people. As a general rule, they're incapable of such behavior and motives themselves, and dishonesty catches them off guard nearly every time, until they learn to be more cautious.
One of the most beneficial virtues of the 9 vibration is the ability to penetrate straight to the heart or the core of a situation instead of indulging in circumlocution and the slow process of analysis. The Mars rulership of 9 allows these people to get directly to the point swiftly, and this makes them extremely impatient of slower thinkers, which doesn't help them win popularity contests. In fact, impatience with the mistakes of others and with errors of thinking they see instantly is one of the traits 9 people find the most difficult to control.
The familiar catch phrase "what you see is what you get" perfectly describes the 9 personality (when it surfaces to interact with the Sun Sign nature) because of the complete lack of guile. It's against the very essence of the 9 vibration to plan complex strategies or to play games to get what they want from other people. It's so much easier to simply demand what they want! Since such straightforwardness in unexpected by the other person, 9 people usually get what they want by catching the opposition by surprise. Many people are touched by the visible vulnerability and childlike quality of the 9 person, and feel protective toward him or her; others see these qualities of the 9 person, and feel protective toward him or her; others see these qualities as foolish, one of the reasons that 9 people are seldom truly respected by friends and business associates--until that Mars temper and courageous spirit comes forth, like a battle cry, and those who underestimated the 9 vibrations pure energy will take a sudden, shocked step backward.
There's a strong tendency toward vanity. At least that's what it appears to be on the surface. But 9 people are not vain, even though they are admittedly almost constantly concerned with their appearance. The true root of this attitude is fear of rejection, because, beneath all their bravado, 9 people inwardly tremble with a lack of confidence. As self-assertive as they may seem, they need continual reassurance that they are liked--respected--admired---and loved. For all the pushiness and independent airs of 9 people, they're secretly very unsure of themselves. Generous to a fault and normally extravagant (unless the Sun Sign cancels this trait most of the time…although it will still be evident on rare occasions in anyone born as number 9)--9people need no lessons in giving. The first instinct is to give, to let go, and let tomorrow take care of itself.
