Numbers, like house numbers, can be read in combination by reading the numbers across and constructing a sentence with the meaning of each number such as the number 432 could be interpreted as “hard work focuses the cooperation of husband and wife”. While a Feng Shui interpretation would be “the end of easy growth”. Numbers can also be interpreted by adding together the numbers and continuing to add the results until you have a number between one and nine. So 432 would be 4+3+2 which equals 9.
Good news! Not everyone is negatively affected by the number FOUR. So how do you know whether to use the Universal, Western or Eastern interpretation of numbers? Universal number energies are always going to be the strongest. Plus the sum of the number will give you more of an overall energy and it will have more of an affect than will each number have individually. And a number on your door (like an apartment number) will be stronger than the number for the entire building.
Then to determine if the cultural energies of numbers is affecting you first consider your experience with past house numbers. Most of the houses I have lived in have added up to a number EIGHT and I have experienced prosperity in those houses. When I lived in a FIVE house we did renovations from the first day we bought it until the time we sold it, so the house was under constant change. My current house adds up to a ONE and my husband was still living when we took this house and this house made us more of one mind. However the entire number 4321 has the Feng Shui energy of “reducing down to the core” which would mean that we would let go of a lot of stuff and clutter and but it also had the profound effect of reducing my relationship as my husband passed away while I have lived here. Numbers don’t rule our lives, cancer would have taken my husband no matter where we lived, but we gravitated to this house because on a spiritual level we knew all that was to take place and these numbers mirrored the experience we were going to have.
With all this in mind there are a lot of special numbers, some lucky, some unlucky. Here’s an abbreviated list.
10—Western interpretation is that this is the number of creation, a combination of the male phallic and female womb energies from which all things come. This is a lucky number.
11—Universally it’s seen as a number of enlightenment. When used for it’s higher purpose it is morally courageous and humanitarian. If not used for the higher purpose it reverts to a TWO.
12—Feng Shui interpretation is “all things will be easy”
13—Western interpretation is unlucky. The 13 people at the Last Supper implied that there was one too many people. The 13th card of the Tarot is Death. On the other hand there were the original 13 colonies of the United States, the eagle symbol of the US has 13 feathers on each wing and there are many more instances of the number 13 being used in American history. The Feng Shui interpretation is quite different. It is “sure to grow”.
14—Feng Shui interpretation is “must let go and let things pass away”. The ONE represents unity and certainty and the FOUR represents death.
22—Universally is another master number like 11. It is the luminary, a powerful energy to help one achieve greatness. In Feng Shui this is not a lucky number, it is considered too Yin to be lucky or powerful.
23—In Feng Shui this would be “easy to grow”.
25—In Feng Shui it’s an auspicious combination of yin and yang. In the West it is the mirror image of the written number which shows balance.
44—In Feng Shui this number is unlucky and could cause a loss of job, health or relationship.
45—In Feng Shui there are ways to mitigate the energy of the unlucky FOUR. This number is lucky because it’s a combination of yin and yang and adds up to NINE. So what is lost through the FOUR is balanced and harmonized by the FIVE.
48—This is a Feng Shui lucky number meaning “sure to prosper”.
54—In Feng Shui this is “shall live forever and will not die”. This is a lucky number.
63—Here’s another lucky Feng Shui number meaning “wealth that grows”.
84—In Feng Shui this is a very positive number for business meaning “very prosperous forever”.

314—A universally lucky number, pi, it is considered a magical number since it’s digits go out to infinity.
453—In Feng Shui terms this is a very unlucky sign meaning “die and will not live”.
455—Don’t be fooled into thinking that a number like this meaning, “will not die”, is always be good. This will be a difficult house to let anything go; old toys, old boyfriends, old emotional hurts, etc.
548—In Feng Shui this is another unlucky number meaning “will never prosper”.

2324—Feng Shui has some numbers that have a mixed energy like this one meaning “easy to live, easy to die”
10,000—The symbol of 10,000 is on the sign that the Lucky Money Cat holds as he calls wealth. In Feng Shui it means “plentiful” or “more than you will ever need”.
142857—A universal sacred number that you get when one million is divided by 7. You can add as many zeros as you like to this number and divide by 7 and you will get the same number
