An epic guide to angel number 999 (and what it really means for you)

Number nine! Number nine! Number nine! Were The Beatles goofing around, or were they really onto something with those number nine repetitions?

It turns out that the angel number 999 has a lot more power than you may think. Angel number 999 has a transformative and cyclical power that heralds the end of old ways and the entrance of new beginnings.

Curious to know how angel number 999 will transform your life? Take a journey with me and find out!

What does angel number 999 mean?

Angel numbers, if you need a brushup, are repeated numbers that suddenly keep popping out at you. Maybe you saw a repeated number on your receipt (say your bill was $59.99), and you saw a house numbered 999 on your way to the cafe, and your book had 999 pages total…

You get the idea. These numbers are known as angel numbers, and they are believed to be secret communications from angels that give us messages and hints about what our future has in store.

Angel number 999 is the highest angel number with three digits. 9 is the highest digit number we have available in our Arabic numeral system. What happens after 9? 10. 1 and 0. It’s a reset!

So 9 signifies that something is completely full and that a new era will appear.

999 is three nines, and three is a powerful number. Three represents the trinity (father, son, holy spirit in Christianity); three represents Christ’s crucifixion, journey into hell, and resurrection; three represents the trimurti (the triple deity in Hinduism), three represents our three spatial dimensions.

Three is also the square root of nine. It takes three threes to make a nine.

So 999 is 9 — the highest number for a single-digit — for three digits. The 3 gives the 9 a holy weight, and signifies that a great and powerful, almost divine-like, new beginning is about to occur.

It is the end of the old. The beginning of the new.

6 reasons you keep seeing the angel number 999

Why do you keep seeing angel number 999? Because there is a chapter in your life that is drawing to a close, and another chapter which you need to begin. Is there a cycle of your life that feels full? Something that has reached its potential?

Looking back, I remember feeling that, as I was turning 27, I felt that the life I had been living in my mid-twenties was full. I thought, “I’ve done the things that 20-somethings do.”

Somehow, someway, that led me to getting a dog, one of the best decisions I ever made, and a new chapter of my life began to unfurl.

Now, to be clear, I wasn’t seeing any multiples of nine — though, hey, come to think of it 3×9 = 27. 999? See? These are the types of new beginnings that I mean.

Let’s take a look at six reasons why you may keep seeing the angel number 999.

1) You’re running from something

I had an old screenwriting teacher that said, “you turn from the door, only to face the dragon.” This is a little bit of a convoluted statement (and I’m sure I’ve messed it up over the years), but what he meant was, “when you choose not to confront your problems, but run from them, you wind up facing something even more fearsome.”

That door, that door that could have held a small problem, or possibly even a great solution, suddenly becomes a monstrous dragon.

NEW QUIZ: What’s your spiritual archetype? At the heart of everything you do, think, and feel is your spiritual archetype. Take this quiz to find out yours.

What are you running from? Are you running from who you truly are? Maybe you’ve convinced yourself that you’re happy in your relationship — that this is who you are, but deep down, you’re unhappy and not in love. You’re running from that, and it’s making things worse.

Or, perhaps, you’re avoiding something more serious, like a friendship or a relationship that you damaged. Maybe it’s time to try and make amends, instead of continually running from the pain you caused.

What are you running from? What are you in denial about? For some of us, it might be that we are in denial about our mental health, convinced we can handle it. I know I’ve certainly said, “oh, I don’t need to see a therapist, I can handle this on my own.” I definitely did need a therapist.

Seeing the number 999 may signify that you are running from something. Take stock of what you’re hiding from. It’s probably time to come to terms with those parts of yourself you don’t particularly like.

2) You need to let go

Letting go can mean many different things. It could mean that you need to let go of a toxic relationship, such as being with a partner who doesn’t support your goals and dreams. It could also mean letting go of a dead-end job, one where your employer has made it clear that you’re not getting promoted anytime soon.

It could also mean that you need to let go of a certain lifestyle. Are you pushing thirty and still living as if you were 21 and still in college? No knock against college, God college was fun, but our life has phases, and sometimes we hit the cap on what a phase of our lives can teach us.

It’s like grinding against the low-level enemies in a video game; at a certain point, you’re just wasting time and avoiding facing bigger challenges.

You may also need to let go of a certain ideology that is holding you back.

Maybe you always identified as a member of a certain party, or religion, but you’ve found that the ideology and the leaders of this ideology have changed around you. To your horror, you’ve found that members of your ideological group have actually abandoned the ethics and ideals that drew you to them in the first place.

I’m not going to name names for these ideologies, but perhaps a safe example maybe when ardent supporters of Richard Nixon found out he had committed serious crimes. They could no longer in good conscious support him. He had to go.

Seeing number 999 could be a message that it’s time for you to cut and run. The question you need to answer is, “what do you need to cut from your life?”

3) You need to forgive

Angel number 999 is all about closing one chapter and starting another. You can’t start a new chapter if there are unresolved hurts. Are you holding onto a grudge from an old fight? Are you holding onto pain from when someone hurt you or betrayed you? Or, are you holding onto your own shame from when you wounded someone you loved?

If that’s the case, then number 999 is telling you that you need to forgive. Forgiveness is the conscious decision to release feelings of resentment and vengeance toward someone who has wronged us. It doesn’t mean that we accept that these actions were ok, or that no harm has been done.

Rather, it means that we extend mercy toward the one who harmed us, and extend mercy to ourselves by removing our grudges that stop us from healing and growing.

4) You’re ready to start something new

Angel number 999 may mean that it’s time to start the next chapter of your life.

If you’ve checked around, understood that you aren’t running from something, don’t have any grudges, and aren’t holding yourself back, but you still feel that you’re “capped out” in your current stage of life, then it’s a good sign you’re ready to start something new! This is a good thing.

The only tricky part is figuring out what exactly that new chapter is supposed to be.

In a way, not having any negative things to cut loose from is liberating. Take it as a sign from the universe that it’s time to grow, but that your paths are limitless. You get to choose your next path! The universe is just giving you the green light. Embrace that green light and figure out what you want the next chapter of your life to be about.

5) You need to be who you were born to be

Angel number 999 is a sign that heralds new beginnings.

One of those new beginnings may be you finally becoming who you were meant to be. Were you forced into a career or an educational track by your parents?

No matter how hard you work, no matter how hard you try, your heart isn’t really in it? Angel number 999 may be telling you it’s time to stop being who others want you to be, and start being who you were born to be.

If there’s a part of yourself you are covering up, burying deep down, or simply ignoring in hope that it will disappear; angel number 999 is a sign that you need to stop this! Identity is beautiful. We need to embrace our true selves, and quit projecting false and curated images to the world.

Be your true self.

6) You need to embrace the universe’s plan

It’s a little inexplicable, and plenty of times it seems contradictory, but I do believe the universe has a plan for us. How detailed that plan is, how set in stone that plan is, how much control the universe has over the individual and vice versa, I am pretty fuzzy on.

But, like most of you, I do get the feeling that the universe has a plan for me. A blueprint, if you will.

When you see angel number 999, this may be a message from the angels that it’s time to embrace the universe’s plan for you. Think of it as the angels saying, “hello, we have this great blueprint for you, and you’re squandering it! Come over here and give it a shot!”

Figuring out the universe’s plan requires that you tune into the universe’s communications. The good news is, if you’ve found the number 999, you’ve already picked up on some signals. Think of finding angel number 999 as hearing a ping on the radio. You’ve found the channel, now you need to listen in.
