Your home is the foundation of your happiness. Whether you live in a house, an apartment, a condo, or even a dorm, the numerology of your address can reveal how you will feel in that home.
Have you ever wondered if your house number means anything or if you have one of those lucky house numbers that buyers go nuts over?
If you’re a superstitious type – or believe the meaning of your house number and your address can in fact change the energy within your home – then you may be interested to know.
House numerology can affect your well being. Since numbers are vibrations, your address sets the tone for your entire living space. Make sure that your house or apartment number is compatible with you and the others living there. Create an energy that is conducive to your lifestyle.
It starts with discovering your home’s number – a single digit between 1 and 9 – and then discovering what that number has to uncover about your home’s unique energy and character.
How to Find Your Home’s Number
In numerology, you need to distill your address into a single digit, which you can do by adding numbers together. For example, if you live at 724 Main Street, you’ll take your address number (“724”) and add the digits together:
7 + 2 + 4 = 13
Then, if you get a double-digit number as a result, add again:
1 + 3 = 4
Your house number is 4!
If you live on a street named for a number…
Ignore it. For example, if your address is 130 5th Avenue, ignore the street (“5th Avenue”) and add up just the address number (the “130,” which becomes “4”).
If you live in an apartment…
Use your unit number – it’s the most unique number for your space. For example, if you live at 1200 Willow Court, Apt. 33, only add up the unit number (“33,” which adds down to “6”).
If you have letters in your address or unit number…
Add it up! If your street number or apartment number contains a letter – like “960-A,” or “4C” – you’ll want to add the letter along with the numbers, using the numeric equivalent of that letter (which is done by assigning it a number according to it’s place in the alphabet). Here’s a cheat sheet:
1 – A, J, S
2 – B, K, T
3 – C, L, U
4 – D, M, V
5 – E, N, W
6 – F, O, X
7 – G, P, Y
8 – H, Q, Z
9 – I, R
So apartment 4C gives us the numbers “4” and “3” (for C), for a numerology number of “7.”
Discover What Your House Number Means
Once you have your home’s number, you can discover its personality.
Independence, Innovation, Strength.
Lucky color: Red (Base Chakra – Action) and Gold (Sun energy).
The number one home is a good space for self-employed people or single people, as the energy of the home encourages you to maintain your independence, autonomy, and personal freedom. In fact, it has exactly the right energy for someone starting a business, working from home, or just looking to discover more about themselves.
Living here can definitely strengthen your determination and confidence, but there are challenges: If you want to find a partner, or are prone to loneliness, this home can have too much ‘self’ energy and not as much partnering. If you’re looking for a ‘soft and fuzzy’ family environment, this is not the place for you.
Pros: Promotes independence and great for people looking for a fresh start.
Cons: You will be constantly busy. One can often see number one houses up for rent as not everyone can cope with their fast pace, or in some cases, exposed location.
Nurturing, Cozy, Sensitive.
Lucky color: Orange (Sacral Chakra – Feelings) and Silver (Moon energy).
The number two home is the polar opposite to a number one home. It’s a home built for belonging. Its energy promotes loving relationships, devotion to the group as a whole, and is a harmonious place to live.
It’s a good home for romantic partners, young families and roommates who are good friends, as people feel nurtured and comfortable here. Because the energy of a number two home is sensitive and sentimental, it’s a lovely place for those who enjoy being surrounded by photographs of family and friends, and having people over for intimate gatherings, especially where feelings are expressed and affection is shared.
Pros: Encourages intimacy, creativity and patience. Live here if you want peace and quiet.
Cons: You’ll become too passive if you’re shy or indecisive. Hoarding is favored, so make sure you clean regularly.
Entertaining, Creative, Upbeat.
Lucky color: Yellow (Solar Plexus Chakra – Power).
Numerologists believe that the number three has creative vibrations, so the number three home is a good place for artists or anyone in a creative field. But it’s also a great environment for social gatherings, entertaining at home and just generally living life to the fullest.
The number three home is perfect for hosting parties and get togethers with fascinating people. If you’re wanting to start a family or an artistic endeavor, the number three home would be a great place – but the same energy can lend itself to you being scattered, unfocused, or spending too much money.
Pros: Ideal for gatherings, raising children and open communication. Three is a lucky number.
Cons: Not the cleanest house, or the best for discipline. Gossip can backfire in a number three house. Play positive music to offset this tendency.
Practical, Protected, Grounded.
Lucky color: Green and Pink (Heart Chakra – Love).
In numerology, the number four has a very serious, grounded vibration – so it follows that the number four home supports discipline, structure and responsibility. It’s a great place to expand a business, grow your family or take control of your finances, as discipline, structure, and responsibility are supported here.
This is a wonderful place if you prefer stability to change, or at least want your home to be conventional, even if the rest of your life is adventurous! But it doesn’t have to be all work and no play – the four home is very ‘earthy’ and benefits from a nice garden and does well with live plants in the interior of the home as well.
Pros: Somewhere you can feel safe and secure; it encourages commitment.
Cons: Can make you more inflexible and conservative. Lots of physical exercise will help you find balance.
Active, Social, Dynamic.
Lucky color: Blue (Throat Chakra – Change).
The number five house is a party house. It maintains a vibrant energy and is a great place for people who love having people over and entertaining guests. But because the number five promotes variety and change, you might find you’re not here long.
If you’re looking for quiet, reflection, or stability, you won’t find it here. But your time in the five house is sure to impart life-long lessons. People living in this home will be encouraged to live life to its fullest, tackle problems with fearless abandon, and make lemonade out of lemons. Living here can teach you lessons about acceptance, the focused use of freedom, dynamic change, and facing your fears.
Pros: Amazing for travellers, night owls, gypsies and forever-young types. You’ll always have people stopping by.
Cons: One can see these houses up for rent more than any other house number – they are better for extroverts.
Love, Harmony, Family.
Lucky color: Indigo / Dark Blue (Third Eye Chakra – Vision).
The ideal home for families, the number six home is a sanctuary where everyone feels welcome. Children and animals thrive here. Actually, everyone (including your guests) will feel ‘at-home’ with the number six – the most domestic number of numerology.
Six house dwellers embrace the nurturing energy by decorating with comfortable furniture and lots of plants. But there are challenges to living in a six home: since ‘responsibility’ is the cornerstone for the energy of the 6, you might feel bogged down with responsibility in this home. You might also feel as though you want to just hang out in your little cocoon all the time and not venture out and engage with the world.
Pros: Often beautiful, excellent for families, pets and home businesses. A nest for lovebirds and Soulmates.
Cons: You might worry about appearances living here. Gardens require more upkeep. Meditation and yoga can help you to relax.
Reflective, Introspective, Spiritual.
Lucky color: Purple (Crown Chakra – Wisdom and Trust).
The number seven maintains a private vibration and can be somewhat secretive. So any home bearing this number will inspire deep thought and reflection – making it a good home for introverts or anyone who loves coming home to have a quiet place to reflect.
It is important that you eliminate any clutter in your environment as well as your thoughts to harmonize with your home’s energy. A seven home is an encouraging place for anyone working on a specialty, like a writer, scientist or professor, as it’s a place you can really take the time to get to know yourself in a deep and profound way.
Pros: Excellent for nature-lovers and those who need personal space. These houses are often set back from the road or have plenty of tree cover.
Cons: Seven is the hermit energy, so don’t live here if you hate being single or spending time by yourself, at least every now and then.
Prosperity, Abundance, Ambition.
Lucky color: White or Pink (Karmic Pattern or Aura Chakra – Strength).
A number eight home supports growth and ambition – making it a great space for entrepreneurs and career-driven people, especially if you run a business from home. If you are wanting to expand your status in the world, position in life, financial wealth, or size of your family, this is a great home for you.
But all of that upward-mobility means that a number eight home isn’t best for anyone who wants their home to be a relaxed environment. People who live here can become workaholics. You might find that you have a tendency to become a ‘hoarder’ in this house – always getting more and more ‘stuff.’ If you’re constantly upgrading the home for ‘show’ purposes, it can become a money pit.
Pros: This is the money number in China and associated with good returns over the long-term. Brings power to the owner and encourages philanthropy.
Cons: You can’t cut corners in a number eight house. It is shaped like an infinity symbol showing what goes around comes around. Cheapskates be warned! You must look after this house. Don’t scrimp on insurance or maintenance. This is a long-term investment.
Compassion, Acceptance, Community.
Lucky color: Brown, Bronze or Gold (Soul Blueprint Chakra – Universal Healing).
Everyone is drawn to the number nine home’s vibe – it has a loving energy that attracts touch-ins and visits from everyone, from all over the world (in numerology, the number nine is an “international” number).
You’ll learn a great deal about yourself and others from living here: the 9 home is a place of humanitarianism. It’s all about charitable giving and its energy promotes creativity, spirituality, selflessness, and forgiveness. The personality of this house supports you in changing the world to make it a better place.
Pros: Everyone feels welcome making these homes great for international residents and/or mixed families. A dreamy space.
Cons: Guests get so cosy that they leave things behind. You’ll need to have regular garage sales. Can feel a bit serious.
