I always get goosebumps when I see a sequence of repeating numbers.
If I happen to glance at the clock at 11:11, or see a license plate with four 4s in a row, or get a freelance check for $333.00, I smile and say a silent "Thank you" to the universe. Repeating numbers are sometimes called angel numbers, and are said to be messages from our spirit guides. I tend to interpret these little messages as "I've got your back" or "You're on the right path," but each number has its own meaning if you want to get specific.
The next new moon is on September 9th, or 9/9, and this mash-up of astrology and numerology couldn't be more on point.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF REPEATING 9s
As the last cardinal number, 9 represents completion, finality. Repeating 9s point to the end of a cycle in your life — and the new moon on 9/9 officially ends the eclipse cycle we've been in since June. Coincidence? Hell no!
Multiple 9s in a row can also be interpreted as a sign of awakening. It makes sense: In order to awaken or reach a new level of understanding, we have to say goodbye to old habits and old ways of thinking. That's exactly what the new moon in Virgo on 9/9 is asking us to do.
To honor this new moon and the energy it brings:
Take some time to reflect on everything that's happened since June (when eclipse season began). You can listen to Tarot for the Wild Soul's September Monthly Medicine podcast to get things started — it compares the events of the past few months to passing through the birth canal. (Which sounds weird, but makes sense when Lindsay explains it!) For a while there, life may have seemed dark and messy and painful — but it'll all be worth it once we emerge on the other side, "reborn" into Virgo season.
Appreciate the challenges you've faced and see them as preparation for the next phase of your life — because it's about to start.
Make a list of things you are ready to release. This can be anything from toxic friendships to non-natural skincare products.
Make a list of intentions, or things you are ready to call in. 9/9 numerology is especially powerful for spiritual or humanitarian intentions — so if you've been thinking about volunteering or exploring your spiritual side, now's the time.
New moons always give you the opportunity to reevaluate your life and set new intentions (as the new moon "grows" over the next two weeks, your intentions grow with it), but when paired with the numerology of 9/9? Your manifesting powers are going to be off the charts!
