September 9th, 2009 can be written as 09/09/09, or 9/9/9. It generally is read in this manner, and not reduced to the number 11, even though this is a master number. The number nine is all about humanitarian issues, compassion, love, and bringing balance into our lives. Many businesses are using the energy of this day to bring out new products, or simply to open as a business. Many areas are finding that couples wishing to marry are focusing on 09/09/09 as being a very auspicious day to get married. This is a day when some believe that spiritual love will be anchored into the earth, and will bring about a huge energy shift. It certainly is a day to be aware of, but also a time period to be aware of, as these energies will be there several days before 09/09/09, and for several days aferward. The energy shift that occurs will be a permanent one, and will allow people that accept it into their lives to move into a higher vibrational energy.
