Even though November is the eleventh month of the year, according to our Gregorian calendar, it takes its name from ‘novem’ or the Latin word for the number nine. November was once the ninth month of the year until the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, whereupon Julius Caesar introduced an additional few months. The number nine is considered the single most auspicious and powerful number in Feng Shui. This philosophy says that you should consider each proceeding number as being part of a pathway into increasing knowledge and awareness until you end at the apex of nine, where all celestial forces meet and complete. Therefore, in Feng Shui the number nine means completion to fulfillment and satisfaction. On this ninth day of what was once the ninth month, go ahead and put nine crisp and brand new one dollar bills into a red envelope and place this package under the welcome mat at your home’s front entrance. This will invite many opportunities for Fortune and Luck, as well as completion and satisfaction, to pay you a nice, long visit!
