Since ancient times, Nine has been a number associated with magic and mystery because of its peculiarities in mathematics. Dreaming of the number 9 can symbolize the Archetype of the Magician - or the profound ability to use what is at your disposal to achieve what you think is not possible. The cat has 'nine lives' to suggest how 9 symbolizes potential in the face of what appears to be an impasse. As the highest single digit number - and ideas like 'to the ninth degree,' dreaming of 9 can show completion or situations reaching an apex. In numerology it is the representation of a highly evolved spiritual awareness that points toward humanitarianism or a focus that transcends the sense of Self. See also 911 and Numbers.
