If you’re looking to uncover the secrets and mysteries of house numerology, look no further.
Where you live matters, but did you know that your house or apartment number can have a tremendous impact on the energy and the vibe of your home?
Different types of energy are conducive to different activities and moods. For example, certain energies promote creativity, while others inspire the blossoming of loving relationships and good communication. In other words, your home’s energy can dramatically impact many different areas of your life.
We don’t all get to choose our street address, but house numerology is worth taking into consideration if you’re looking for a new place of residence. By the same token, being aware of how your current house or apartment number is influencing your home environment can be a source of knowledge and power.
Are you ready to learn much more about how house numbers influence the energy of your home? If so, then keep on reading, because there is a lot for us to unpack.
Why your house address number matters
When we choose a new house, the house number is rarely one of the aspects we take into consideration. There is so much else to consider, and many of these things are far more immediately obvious – the location, the size and layout of the house or apartment, whether or not there is a garden, and so on and so forth.
Sensing the energy of a place can take much more time, and is rarely immediately obvious. If you step into a house or apartment and you immediately don’t like the vibe of the place, you are much more likely to put your discomfort down to an external factor, from low ceilings to a depressing view of a supermarket carpark opposite.
However, the energy of a home is defined and shaped by much more than its physical characteristics. This is where house numerlogy comes in.
A house number has power and holds an energetic charge, much in the same way as a name does. If you are already familiar with numerology, you know that numbers have meaning. And while most numbers have both positive and negative qualities, some numbers are decidedly more positive, uplifting and energetic than others.
If you can, you should always choose a house or an apartment with a number that represents energies you want to invite into your life. Let us say, for example, that you are an aspiring writer and that you want your new home to be a place filled with inspiration, creativity and productivity.
Choose your next home address based on what you want (whether it’s to stop wasting too much money, start being more productive, build a lasting romantic bond, or something else)
Most of us move several times during our lifetimes, but it is still unusual to move around a lot as an adult. This is why choosing the right home number is so important – most likely, you’re going to be stuck with the energy of the home you choose for quite some time.
Using Feng Shui, colour psychology and other decorating techniques, there is much you can do to spruce up, enliven or change the energy of a place. But among the few things you cannot change are the location of the place, and the house number.
Depending on how long you intend to live at your current or your next address, it makes good sense to choose wisely, and to take the house number into account. If you have both the patience and the resources necessary to wait until a dream house with an equally ideal house number becomes available, it is a combination worth waiting for.
To make the house hunting process easier, it is often a good idea to decide in advance what kind of home you want to occupy in the long term, so that you can choose a house or an apartment that is imbued with energies that are conducive to your long-term goals and plans.
Ask yourself, what kind of vibe do I want my home to have? Is it going to be a place for deep concentration and creative inspiration, is it going to be a place to relax, recharge and feel comforted, or is it a social household, a place of lively conversation and fun gatherings?
Once you have decided what kind of energy you want your home to have, it makes it much easier to know whether a house you are viewing has what it takes to become what you need it to be.
How to calculate your house number or apartment number
Now that we have the basic theory covered, it is time for us to get practical. It is time for you to calculate the core number of your current home, or of your next home.
There are two different ways of determining what your core house or apartment number is. Let’s look at both of them.
If your home has a single digit number
If your house or apartment number is single digit, determining the numeric value of your home is as simple as looking at that one digit. So, if the single digit on the front of your house is 9, it means that your home number is 9.
If your home has a double digit number
Most homes have double, triple, or in some cases even quadruple numbers. This makes the core number slightly less obvious, but here is how to easily find it.
If your home address number is more than one digit, you will have to boil it down to a single digit. You do this by adding up the individual digits of your house number.
Let us say, for example, that your house number is 129. The calculation, in this case, would be 1 + 2 + 9, which adds up to 12. Now you have a shorter number, but it is still two digits long. The way to boil it down is to repeat the same process of adding up the numbers. So now, 1 + 2 equal 3.
No matter how big your original house number, it is always possible to boil it down to a single digit using this method. Simply keep adding up the numbers until you are left with only one digit between 1 and 9.
What your home’s number means
All right, now we are getting to the truly exciting part: What the individual house numbers mean and what kinds of energies they each promote.
Are you ready? Let’s take a deep dive.
There are no two ways about it; 1 is a singularly influential number.
The number one is universally associated with being number one, with being eccentric, exceptional and accomplished. The number one possesses a decidedly upbeat energy and represents victory, personal freedom, self-confidence, and striving for the top.
If you are, say, an entrepreneur, an ambitious career lawyer, an athlete, or anyone else driven by a deep-seated desire for self-improvement and mastery, a number 1 house is a great match for you. At the other end of the spectrum, a number 1 house could also be greate for someone who lacks motivation and vision. In this case, the energetic frequency of a number 1 house or apartment would inspire and enliven them, which could help instil some drive and motivation.
If there is anything negative to say about a number 1 home, it is that it has a very self-focused energy and not as much partnering energy. This is why, if you are living in a number one home with a spouse, partner or family, you need to be mindful of making enough space for them, in addition to your personal goals and ambitions.
The number 2 represents duality, companionship, compatible differences and the meeting of opposing forces.
It is little wonder why house number 2’s energy promotes loving relationships and would be ideal for romantic partners or young families, although also suitable for friends, siblings or roommates as the energetic frequency of the number 2 would help create a stable and mutually supportive household.
It is also worth noting that animals thrive in a number 2 house, where they will both have and provide nurturing and pleasant companionship.
The number 3 is widely associated with imagination, magic, luck, adventure, and stepping into the unknown.
A number 3 house is, in many ways, both versatile and dynamic. In other words, you can take the positive and lively energy of the number 3 and shape it into almost anything you want.
3 is a particularly great house number for artistists and creative sof every ilk, as the energy of the place is bound to bring inspiration and new ideas galore. 3 is also a great number for inspiring curiosity and the development of new skills and knowledge.
There is a constant, effortless flow to the number 3, and while you live in an apartment or house with the numbe 3, you are likely to experience a disproportionate amount of positivity, luck and synchronicity.
The number 4 is intimately linked with the material world, and with concepts like stability, safety, comfort – all amazing qualities if you are looking for what most people are looking for in a home.
Choosing a house or apartment with the number 4 as its root energy is great if you prefer stability, security and comfort over the volatility and sociableness of a party household with a revolving door vibe to it.
Another way of putting it would be to say that there is a maturity and a heft to a number 4 home which is more likely to appeal to slightly more mature adults or merely old souls, who are looking for a home with a peaceful and private vibration.
Of course, number four homes are still great places to be entertaining guests, but these are more likely to be engaging dinner parties and the gaterhing of small and intimate groups of family and friends, rather than full-blown house parties.
If you are looking for a dynamic, vibrant and sociable household, a number 5 home is your best bet.
The number 5 is an extroverted, fun and cheerful number, one that is fizzy with energy and possibility.
If your social life is a big feature in your life and you like hosting parties – or even, if you like bringing creative collaborators or business partners around to your home for lively brainstorm sessions – a number 5 home hast just the lively and fresh energy you need.
If you are someone who struggles with self-doubt and feel like you are lacking in social skills, a number 5 house could prove a challenge – but one that will help you grow beyond your own perceived limitations by catapulting you out of your comfort zone at 1000 miles per hour.
The number six is associated with social bonds, charitable giving and community building, as well as personal growth and development.
A number six home is an ideal place for intimate gatherings of family and close friends. It is also a wonderful place to raise children, as a number six house is inevitably going to be warm, nurturing and social.
While a number six house is very sociable and other-focused, it is also a great place to focus on your own personal development and growth, whether we are talking about your spiritual journey or your career.
All in all, a number six house is exceptionally well balanced and versatile.
The number seven energy promotes creativity, spirituality, mysticism, dreams and curiosity, which makes a number seven home a great nesting place for artists, scientists and dreamers.
The numer seven is universally associated with fairy tales, with miracles, with trascending the mundane reality in order to reach something higher and finer.
A number seven house can unfortunately also lead to distractions and an excessive amount of daydreaming. If you live in a number seven house and know that you have a tendency to dream and procrastinate, make sure you focus on balancing that out.
The number eight is a wonderful, rich and solid home number to deal with. When you are looking for a long-term place to put down your roots, you can hardly do better than a number 8 house or apartment.
Whether you are looking for the ideal place to do deep work, build your financial wealth or tend a beautiful garden that your grandchildren will one day play in, a number 8 house is the right place to do it.
If, however, you are in your early twenties and don’t yet have many responsibilities tying you down, the energy of a number 8 house can lack excitement and sparkle.
A number 9 apartment or house supports spiritual growth, adventurousness and creative energy.
The number 9 is inherently transcendental, spiritual and mystical, as it forms a bridge between the singlet-digit numbers and the unknown. Even the shape of the number 9 seems to suggest an open-ended spiral.
A number 9 house is great for those who like a fast-paced, dynamic and ever-changing energy. If your work and life schedules are fluctuating and you like the feeling of uthethered freedom and open-ended possibility that comes with a number 9 house, this would be a great home for you.
What to do if your house number doesn’t match the energy you need
If you are currently living in a house number that isn’t a great energetic match for you, and you lack the option of moving to a new place – and, let’s face it, packing up your whole life and moving to a new house or appartment is not always simple or even possible -, there are fortunately still things you can do to create a counterweight to the predominant energy in a way that establishes a new and better harmony.
So, what can you do in a practical sense? Let us take inventory of your options.
When it comes to changing the energy of a space, the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui is your best tool.
Feng Shui allows you to add or subtract any energetic charge from a space. Let us say, for example, that you live in a fast-paced, volatile and adventurous number 9 house, but what you really need is stability, security and comfort.
Using Feng Shui principles, you can focus on bringing earth-like energies into the space. Paint your bedroom in dark green hues, choose furniure in wooden materials and color schemes. Add plants, whether potted or hanging. Intrudce soft furnishings that have a calming, soothing effect, such as plump velvet pillows and shaggy rugs, all in a neutral or forest-like color scheme.
Another example is if you live in a number 1 house, but you are trying to improve your love life and make more space for your romantic relationship to grow and take root. A number 1 house is the ideal bachelor pad, but the energy is not necessarily conducive for deepning a relationship.
So what you can do is to change the colors, materials and shapes of the space. For example, choose comfortable furniture and natural elements over sleek glas and steel. Choose heavy draped curtains rater than blinds. Add a water feature to the corner of the living room, and add photos or figures that represent romance, couples or pairs. And, very importantly, match both sides of the bedroom. If you live with your spouse, or with a boyfriend or girlfriend, make sure that you both have the same bedroom tables and the same lamps on both sides of the bed, as ill-matched furniture can create discord and distance in a romantic relationship.
You can also use art and decorative objects that represent the kind of vibe or energy you want. If you want to create a calm and soothing environment, a large painting of a forest or a jungle in an ornate frame can add that energy. Conversely, if you want to create a lighter, more airy feel, add mirrors and glass objects that reflect the light.
Crystals are fantastic storehouses of spiritual energy. And, as luck would have it, they’re also beautiful decorative objects.
If the energy of your house number is at odds or merely uncooperative with your dreams and plans, bring some crystals into your home to add in the missing energetic frequencies. Let us say that you are a creative and that you want to be able to tap into a constant stream of ideas and inspiration whenever you’re sitting at home in your living room, but you live in a number 4 house.
Add citrine and clear quartz to your coffee table, and perhaps a few other spiritual or inspiring decorations, and you will soon find your mind brimming with fresh and fertile ideas.
Really, any form of decorating that has to do with changing the energy and vibe of a space fits in under the Feng Shui umbrella, but colors deserve a headline of their own.
It is a well-documented fact that colors have enormous influence on everything from our moods to our energy levels. It is no coincidence, for example, that hospital corridors and waiting rooms are often painted a pale green. The fact that many nightclubs and bars are decorated in black and red is also no coincidence.
Use this knowledge to your advantage if you want to switch up the energetic frequency of your environment. If you want to imbue your home with more warmth and connection, consider painting your living room in peach, pink or yellow. If you want to create intimacy, a dark, deep color such as forest green or deep fuchsia is a great way to go about it. Likewise, if you need to freshen up the energy and clear your thoughts, paint the walls white and add some mirrors to create the illusion of more light and brightness.
Frequently asked questions
What is my house numerology?
House numerology, or home address numerology, is the area of numerology that deals with where you live.
Just like you have a life path number that is determined by your date, month and year of birth, your house, apartment or room also has a specigic numeric value. And, as anyone who is even vaguely familar with numerology will already be aware, every number means something. Every number holds a specific energetic charge.
It is not always possible to choose where you live, but knowing what kind of energy your home is imbued with can help you work with – or against, as the case may be – the energetic blueprint if your surroundings.
How do I choose my house number according to numerology?
If you have the option, you should choose a house or apartment with a number that resonates the kind of energy you want to immerse yourself in when you are in your home environment.
Which house number you should choose depends on what kind of vibe you want your home to have. If you are looking for a secure, comfortable and nurturing base, a place where you can relax and feel cradled, a house with the number 4 would be a great choice for you. If, on the other hand, you want a very social household, a place to throw parties or host business meetings, a house with the number 6 would be ideal. If your focus is on building long-term wealth and put down deep roots, perhaps for generations to come, a house with the number 8 is the best option.
In other words, which house number you should go for really depends on what kind of energy you want to dominate in your home.
Is 6 a good house number?
6 is a wonderful home address number, but whether it is the best match for you depends on what you are looking for in a home. Just like it is impossible to make a blanket statement as to whether a Victorian townhouse or a modern luxury penthouse apartment is better, it comes down to your personal preferences and what you need for your personal growth.
A house or an apartment with the number six is boud to be a sociable and generous home. A number 6 house supports communication and the deepening of interpersonal bonds and connections.
On the other hand, a number 6 house may not be ideal if what you are looking for is a hidden oasis where you can just relax and restore your batteries. This is because the energetic frequency of the numebr six is fast-moving, restless and outgoing.
A house with the number 6 might suit you at a particular time in your life, but not at another. For example, a number 6 house might be ideal while you’re a student, or while you are building a startup company from your bedroom, but less ideal later on when you want a quiet place to retreat to.
What does house number 11 mean in numerology?
House number 11 is really a number 2 house. The reason for this is that numerology focuses on the meaning of single digits, so any number that is two digits or more should first be boiled down to their one-digit essence.
To boil a 2+ digit number down, simply add the individual digits up, and keep adding them up until you end up with just one digit. In this example, the equation is 1 + 1 = 2.
A number 2 house is characterized by harmony, balance and collaboration. It is an ideal house number for a young coulple, or a young family looking to establish itself and build a firm foundation of trust as well as mutual values, goals and experiences.
