For many people shopping for a house or apartment, the home number is just something you plug into your GPS in case you get separated from the real estate agent at a red light. It's not actually given much thought.
But in Feng Shui, house numbers carry great significance for the inhabitants of a home. If your home is not a single digit, add up all the digits in the house number to get the house number for numerology purposes.
For instance, a home with the number 153 would be a number 9. (1 + 5 + 3 = 9) If you add up the digits and still get a multiple digit number, then add those digits together, until you come up with a number between 1 and 9.
The Best Feng Shui House Numbers
Feng Shui masters consider number 8 the most auspicious number for a home. The number 8, on its side, represents the infinity symbol. A number 8 home will provide endless opportunities for wealth, health, advancement and happiness.
People in a number 9 home will probably stay there a long time, if not for their whole lives. It is a good home to raise a family if you are seeking security and stability. Since number 9 also represents the attainment of a goal, and the pinnacle of achievement, this is a good place for those seeking career and financial success.
The number one in numerology represents new beginnings -- this may be a good starter home for newlywed couples.
The number 5 represents change: this can be good or bad. If you are seeking adventure, you may be drawn to a number 5 house.
