The Numerology of 99: Its Meaning and Significance
The number 99/9 is about completing one's life lessons, goals, dreams, and actions, whatever the price. Sometimes completion becomes the goal in itself. 99 is the end of a cycle and represents the completion of the ultimate goal. 99/9 resonates with "doomsday" – the end of the world. Called "Ragnarok" in the nordic traditions, or "Maha Pralaya" in the Hindu tradition.
It is self-discipline in its utmost consequence. It represents ultimate strength and courage from the triple 9 energy (9 + 9 = 18, an aspect of 9).
We find the double 9 combinations in the charts of people who have an extreme self-discipline in any field, whether it, for example, is the famous saxophonist John Coltrane who practiced for 12 hours per day (born in a 9 month in a 9 year), or the cyclist Lance Armstrong who won Tour de France 7 times (born on a 9 day, in a 9 month in a 9 year) or a person with an intense daily spiritual practice – for example, Hildegaard of Bingen, (born in a 9 month in a 9 year). We also have Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (born on a 9 day, in a 9 month, in a 9 year), of who it is said that he was turned down 1009 times before he heard his first yes. 99/9 stands for finalizing, and in this sense, it is also interesting that the last apartheid president of South Africa, F.W. de Klerk, who "finalized" apartheid, was born on a 9 day and has a 9 life path number.
In imbalance, 99/9 can be misunderstood by other numbers who cannot keep up with one's actions, which can seem principled, lofty, and maybe even "tough." There can also be a tendency to shut out emotion or discount it with the number 99. Emotion is sacrificed on the pyre of principle and reaching the end goal.
99/9 can be a number of great karmic and spiritual tests, because it signifies that we are on the very last part of the journey, the part with the most obstacles and trials, and 99/9 has to be strong to push through the very last leg.
Because of the perceived or actual difficulties, 99/9 can be tempted to resort to unethical methods to reach the final destination (for example, the aforementioned Lance Armstrong, who resorted to drugs to win Tour de France). The tired 99/9 so much wants to reach the end goal that the goal justifies the means. 99/9 can also resort to making everything in its life automated. Rules and schedules take care of everything, and everything becomes soul-less. It can feel so tired deep in its bones that it is waiting for its own death because the goal, though right around the corner, feels so far away that there is nothing left to live for. And that's the irony with 99/9. Sometimes it walks 99 miles of the 100 miles but gives up at the 99-mile point, not knowing that it was that close. And here we have a valuable lesson with the number 99/9 - sometimes in life, we feel that there is no hope left and that we are at the end of our tether, when in fact, the light is just around the corner. So next time you feel that you can not go on a single step, perhaps you should give it one last shot.
In balance, the number gives power, strength, drive, and the ability to complete any task.Explore more about the numerology of 99 and its powerful implications in our online program "Chaldean Numerology for Beginners."

The number 99 is a master numberThe number 99 is a master number meaning that the first digit is the same as the last digit. This means that the "inner lessons" (dictated by the inner digit) are the same as the "outer lessons" (dictated by the outer digit). So how we manage our inner life is reflected in the outer life.
Master numbers in our charts are the carriers of "karma" - if you didn't understand the lessons represented by a certain number in your previous incarnations, you get double up in this life - either in your birthday numbers or in your names. So having master numbers can feel "heavy" or "difficult."
But this karma can also be burned quickly if you start performing the right actions. Since the inner and outer digits are the same, there is a tendency that whatever you think becomes a reality - which is bad news if your inner world is full of pessimism and dark thoughts. But once you start aligning your inner world with the power of the number in its balanced form, the opposite also holds - you will begin manifesting a life of beauty and abundance.
Master your thoughts
One of the first lessons, when you have a master number in your charts (for example, a birthday number or essence number), is that you have to start mastering your thoughts and what vibrational frequencies you send into the world. What you think and focus upon should revolve around the balanced aspects of the inner digit (in this case, the number 9) and should be expressed out in the world through the digit sum of the number - in this case, 18.
The lessons of 99Since this is the number 99 it means that your inner desire to reach the pinnacle of the mountain will be met in your outer life by huge obstacles which symbolize the final things you have to achieve in order to reach transcendence. The digit sum of 99 is 18 which is a number of battle, war, fanaticism and action. This is not an easy number to master due to the many obstacles which have to be passed. The only way through the obstacles is through "karma yoga" - meaning you give the fruits of all your actions to God. Only in this way can you attain the necessary inner "lightness" to perform all action EFFORTLESSLY. When your remove the burden of expectation from your mind you allow divinity to work through you and a whole new level of energy and power enters your being.

99 is under the influence of MARS
Mars is a reddish planet, and it's surface is covered by towering rock formations and mountains that are twice as high as Mount Everest. There are Grand Canyon-like rock abysses, so scientists believe that there once was water on the surface.
Mars is 2/3 of the size of the Earth and has only approx. 60% of the gravitational field, so you can jump much higher on Mars than here on Earth.
Mars is the Roman god of war, which brings the final judgment and the end of times. Mars people are often warrior like and ready to conquer and subdue the world. They have the courage and strong will and, thanks to these qualities, achieve great success.
But impulsivity hurts their activities. They often do not weigh their strengths and do not distribute them rationally.
In love and partnership, they can experience difficulties as they are both often stubborn, proud, and insensitive.
Mars gives excellent organizational skills and leadership talent.
If they correctly harness their innate strength, discipline, enterprise, and focus, Mars people can achieve tremendous success.
