The month of September is a time of adjusting our life strategies and expectations of others and ourselves for the remainder of the year. The number 9 of September speaks to the issues of refinement, completion, self-mastery, and an intuitive awareness of our deepest emotional needs.
As we are longing for the fulfillment of these needs, we must still safely navigate the chaos of the world. It is our Subtle Body, combined with the self-sensory system, which will give us the guidance and support necessary at this time.
Yes, the number 9 is the Subtle Body, which is the most powerful of the 10 Light Bodies. It is above time and space, and has the ability to sense another person’s energetic space by simply tuning into them. We need to have our wits about us as we travel a sometimes tricky terrain throughout this month.
Part of the reason for this lies in the Heart number, which is a 13 (Heart is month of 9 + Gift of 4 =13). Thirteen is the number of the “double-edged sword,” meaning it has a very strong positive and negative polarity.
In the negative polarity number 13 is misunderstandings, deception, and even betrayal. There will be a tendency at this time for people to not quite understand each other. By the time we reach the 3rd week of September, there will be the common experience of, “But I thought you said this and not that!”
So, how to remedy this tendency? Speak clearly and slow down your speech for key parts of the communication. For example, “The schedule has changed, and I need to you pick up the children at 3:15 and not 3:45. Yes, the kids will be waiting outside in the rain at exactly 3:15, and thank you for making an extra note of this!”
Follow-up emails and text messages can also help to avoid this “crossed-wire effect” during the month. Otherwise, once someone locks into their “rightness” about a situation, forget about it, it’s a long road to the finish line of reconciliation.
Being right, as well as issues of justice and fair play will abound, as the Base number for September is a 6 (Base is month of 9 + year of 6 = 15 = 6). Number 6 has an inherent sense of justice, as well as a need for security and protection. We don’t get political here in the Numerology forecast, but heads-up, it’s gonna be an absolute sh*t show in the U.S. political arena. Heads will turn, roll, and reveal secrets that were behind the veil of power. This is because 9 is the number of magic and mystery, and a few cards previously tucked up the sleeve of “mischief-meisters” will fall face-up on the table.
As we navigate our personal lives, September is a time to re-visit our self-care program. Number 6 represents the immune system, and number 9 is refinement and self-mastery. We need to chart out a healthy, balanced plan for the remainder of the year, particularly leading into winter. Incorporating root vegetables into the diet, such as onion, garlic, ginger, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, potatoes, etc., is a good way to feel grounded and satisfied. It is easy to make a savory casserole by adding green herbs and olive oil to the baking dish, and in about an hour you have a wonderful meal to enjoy!
Circling the wagons back around to the number 13, let’s take a look at the positive polarity of this number. Thirteen is the “Power of the Word,” and this means that our spoken words will have a greater power and impact now. We can leverage this power to serve us the best by practicing a mantra for health, vitality, and clarity.
The Sat Siri, Siri Akal mantra is for victory, and it eliminates despair and feelings of insufficiency. The cheerful version in the link will open your Heart center, giving you an elevated Power of the Word. It will also support your Arc line and Subtle body, giving you the ability to navigate the world with an intuitive grace and flow. Chant this for 5 minutes in the morning, and you will experience your self-sensory system in a new and magical way. It’s all within your reach!
Looking further into the number 9 of September, it is important to note that 9 represents completion and refinement. Our higher instincts will be checking in with us and asking the question, “Is this really working for you anymore?” It is important now to take time and reflect on any area of life where there has been stress or conflict, and ask yourself the question, “Can I upgrade the situation, or do I need to make a total change?”
Give yourself time and space for this process, as when number 9 goes negative it can be intensely reactive. A knee-jerk reaction will not likely get you where you need to go, and the positive aspect of number 9 is patience and the ability to sift through the layers of a situation to find the root cause of the distress.
Nine in the positive polarity is also an appreciation for the arts, music, film, and anything that has an esthetic quality or value. This is a great time to invest yourself in a class, project, or hobby that brings beauty and joy into your life. Taking a creative writing class, joining an improv acting class, or learning wood carving or clay sculpture on your own are all ways to expand your creative horizons. And yes, there’s a YouTube video for practically any skill you would like to explore on your own!
Hmm, and now that I think of it, YouTube has a cornucopia of Do-it-Yourself videos. I just recently had to replace a doorknob inside my home, and after going to the hardware store and getting the perfect doorknob, I was enraged to see how much it would cost to have someone install it. “No way I’m paying that!” I can remember thinking. Then I thought, “It’s a doorknob, how difficult could it be?” So, I typed in “replace your own doorknob” on YouTube, and good ol’ Jimmy was there to talk me through it step-by-step. I rock!
The co-creative forces of the Universe are very powerful at this time, and our better Angels are here to guide and support us every step of the way. Your simple effort and investment in yourself to clear your mind through mantra and meditation is the key to unlocking the doorway to your own higher ground. The veils of illusion are dispelled when we raise our own vibration through a “spiritual code” that is empowered with light.
