NUMEROLOGY - What Your House Number Means

The Energy and Vibration of your Home

To work out your HOUSE NUMBER vibration, add the numbers of your address together, then reduce it to a single digit. This single digit is your House Number.

For example: A house or apartment number of 22 would be worked out as 2 + 2 = 4. 4 is the House Number.

A house or apartment number of 326 would be calculated as: 3 + 2 + 6 = 11. 1 + 1 = 2. The number 2 is the House Number.


This house inspires drive and independence. Under no circumstances clutter this house. Keep furniture to a minimum and decorate in white or strong bright colours. Keep windows clean and clear.

A number 1 house is likely to be the type of house which catches the attention of others as they pass. These distinguishing features could be good or bad, both attracting attention.

People living in number 1 houses often use white, gold and orange in and around their homes. You will often see guilded mirrors and crystal chandeliers, if money allows.

A number 1 house quite often belongs to a person with a high position in work, and to one who has a definite ambition. It can sometimes be the home of someone notorious or famous. A person who has not been well for sometime will improve in a number 1 house.

People who are not ‘snobs’ or members of the ‘upper crust’ may be brought in contact with these people. Number 1 house people themselves can be ‘snobs’.


A number 2 house is sure to be a very homely, comfortable and attractive home, with nice unpretentious people who are willing to share their hospitality with others.

The number 2 house is often decorated with comfortable, cosy and tasteful furnishings, and has a loving and warm atmosphere.

The 2 house has simple, nurturing foods in their cupboards, and share this with others freely. There is seldom any sign of ostentation at a number 2 house.

Sympathetic influence of the 2 gives an affinity and feeling for the mass of average people, and there is often a real sense of community spirit present in this house.

Often children living here may not be your own, but other people’s who are drawn to your place.

A number 2 house is not a fixed, stable influence and there may be many changes and alterations affecting people in this house.

The number 2 address inspires sensitivity, so compliment its energy with pinks, whites and creams.


The Number 3 house expresses a desire for expansion and increase for the people who live there, with the result that one feels the need for plenty of room to move.

Number 3 houses give a great need for freedom and unrestricted living. It is to be recognized that the Number 3 functions in both its positives and negative, so there will be honesty and dishonesty, gain and loss, controlled expansion and reckless gamble.

The 3 address is an interesting residence, as it symbolizes encouragement rather than discouragement.

This fun house inspires creativity and brings lots of visitors.

Use wicker and cane furniture and keep colours fun with yellow and purple tones.


A number 4 House isn’t everyone’s cup of tea because the influence can be very overpowering. Because of the diametrically opposing forces inherent in this number, the 4 house is likely to have some odd feature about it which should, but can not, easily be resolved.

There is often an effort made to transform the old-style appearance into a contemporary design, but this can be very difficult to achieve or can cause great disruptions to those living there.

Number 4 often produces a strong sense of frustration because it pulls in two directions. Only persons with a strong positive character will be able to find the qualities of peace of mind and tranquillity in a number 4 house.

This influence can bring bigger upheavals and more disruptions than any other number, and more often happen through circumstances beyond one’s control. More than one person living in a number 4 house can be found to have completely different points of view and neither will give way to the other. This can be very noticeable between the very conventional – ‘square’ parent, and a – way out ‘mod’ teenager.

People who live in a number 4 house will have to work very hard, and a standard conventional line of work is often tossed aside under the influence of the 4. They then set about carving out some original niche for themselves.

The 4 home can attract financial or relationship problems, so negate that with attractive gardens and a brightly-coloured front door and letterbox. Decorate with earthly colours such as brown, with touches of green, caramel and white.


A number 5 house is a very busy place, and one can feel a restless air of activity as soon as you walk in the door. This is a home where people get together and talk about all sorts of things. There are always people popping in and out, coming and going. It can be like a miniature railway station. 5 can be an exciting address to live at, especially for singles.

People who are connected with communication, news, information and transport all seem to be at home in a number 5 house. The telephone is an essential and much needed item in a number 5 house; and this also applies to the car. This is due to the restless nature of the number 5 because it likes to be out and about, circulating and making contact with people and places.

Children in a 5 house often have a great interest in bikes or motorbikes. This number also tends to produce a highly-strung, rather nervous type of disposition and it does seem to be difficult to sit and do nothing in a number 5 house.

There is always something about the 5 house that you do not like. Combat this by using bright colours on the walls, and camouflaging areas that are not to your taste.


This is certain to be a most attractive and/or artistically decorated house. It may express, in some way, something of beauty, symmetry and refinement, to do with number 6. There is usually a predominance of pastel shades in the basic colour scheme, and often a preference for pink or aqua - the overall effect being one of harmony and calmness.

In its negative aspect, 6 tends to overdo the decorative effects, often combining too many colours and therefore spoiling the effect.

As 6 is the number of equality and justice, consequently, to live in this house means that you will be repaid for past action. Don’t forget, however, that the harvest will depend on the type of seeds that have been sown.

With the 6 energy of this house, those living in the home are also balanced under this influence. Love and hatred, attraction and repulsion, are the positive and negative aspects of the number 6. It is therefore likely that you will learn the meaning of one or the other, or maybe even both, while living in a number 6 house.

The 6 home is a lovely address for families and for artists and teachers. Under the happy influence of this number, you will probably make some wonderful friends and have many enjoyable moments because it is the most favourable number for harmonious co-operation. The closeness of family, pets and loved ones are felt in the 6 home. Discord cannot survive for long in the kind of atmosphere in this house.


The 7 address inspires spirituality.

The number 7 address is under very complex and very subtle influences. The house can appear at first glance to be one thing, when in actual fact, it is the opposite. There may be a part of the structure that is not instantly visible to the onlooker and in some cases, the structure is defective, though it may not be apparent.

The common problem with a number 7 house is dampness, or trouble with drainage.

Furniture should be minimal and you should decorate with touches of purple, orange and/or yellow. Try to create a 'quiet room' with a bookcase, or have regular 'no TV' times to benefit the family from the energies of the 7 vibration.


A great address for everyone, particularly the self-employed and self-motivated. This house will normally skyrocket in value or help those living there to accrue wealth.

Try not to have anything shabby showing, and keep furniture as modern as you can.

Natural earthy shades with touches of red are ideal.


The 9 house enhances study and all students will do well living here. The number 9 inspires ‘humanitarianism’ and this house will be open to bringing people in. For example, if a friend or family member is in need, room will always be made for them in a 9 house.

A 9 house is prone to have electrical problems and burnt toast is a common occurrence.

Decorate in pale, calm colours and keep lots of houseplants. Display trophies around the room to enhance success, and put out fresh flowers as often as you can.

Irene on December 16, 2014:

I'm moving into a number 4. Research on the number is scary. Is there any way to make a number 4 house work more positively

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on May 05, 2014:

Look at number 5, then number 6 ... then add them until you reduce to a single digit = 2

Precious on May 05, 2014:

If your address reads 5/6 ...... Road heat number house would that be

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on April 28, 2014:

Yes it does Barbara :)

Barbara on April 28, 2014:

I am moving into a unit with the street address: unit 2, 31 Carlyle lane. Does this mean it's a number 6.

Ronny on October 20, 2013:

My house adds to a 21. I thought 11 and 21 were perfect numbers and cannot be reduced? So why are 11 and 21 not listed?

judy on October 15, 2013:

Elle on January 05, 2013:

Hi Psychic Joanne,

Still curious, if you wouldn't mind a quick response to my question above... :-)

Thanks very much!

RRivera505 on November 07, 2012:

I saw the number 2241,woke up and saying Thank You God.

elle on October 14, 2012:

If I did this right, my partner and I are stunned at the accuracy of your write-ups for the numbers involved.

Wanted to double check: Is it best to add the building address (street address) + apartment number and reduce that to the single digit to get the overall sense of the address?

Or is it better to consider each on their own, for instance the building/street address reduced to a single digit, separate from the result of reducing the apartment number to a single digit?

Here's an example:

If our address is" 529 North Main Street, Apartment 4", this could be a 7 building, a 4 apartment, or an 11 dwelling, possibly even reduced to a 2, right? Which would be the main House Number to read to get the most accurate assessment?

Thanks for a really cool site,

Dodo on June 06, 2012:

Write your favourite numbr on the inside of your appartment door.....tht will change the energy

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on June 05, 2012:

Generally, you use just the numbers and reduce them to a single digit. In the case of 2212 it would be number 7.


Maudinger on June 05, 2012:

What is the correct way to figure your house number. Do you use just the numbers in the address or the whole address? Really need to know. Thanks for your help. Maudinger

Maudinger on June 04, 2012:

I found out by reading more that you can use the whole address: 2212 Whispering pine Circle and that gives the house a #4. I used just the numbers. What is the correct way to figure out the numerology of your house. Is it a 4 or a 7?

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on June 04, 2012:

Thanks for your comments Maudinger ...

Number 7 is indeed a highly spiritual number and encourages awakening and enlightenment - and as with a spiritual path comes life lessons to experiences and learn from. Everything happens for a reason remember, so you are moving into this particular home (7)for reasons that may not yet seem clear now, but will make sense with hindsight.



Maudinger on June 04, 2012:

I am a #6 with my maiden name , but #9 with my current name. I am moving into a #7 house and after reading about a #7 house I worry about the significance of moving in there in a new relationship The house had a fire a couple of years ago and it now has been totally rebuilt, except for the exterior brick walls and chimney. There are no water problems. Is there a problem? I thought #7 was a great spiritual number, but now I see potential problems. Thanks for your help. Maudinger

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on May 30, 2012:

You may look to exanding your spiritual growth and individuality in an 8 House when you are a 7.



vm on May 30, 2012:

hi , i m moving to a house no 8, my personal no is 7. What do you think?

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on May 17, 2012:

More fun to come then Christine ...

christine on May 17, 2012:

i lived in a 5 house for 20 years, boy was fun, now im moving into another 5 house, oh boy.

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on April 22, 2012:

Add all of the digits together ...

3+8+5+5=21, 2+1=3

This makes the number 3 your house number.



AshWin77 from India on April 22, 2012:

hi, my house number is 385/5, how do i reduce it to single digit?

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on December 09, 2011:

Yes nikkilc25 ... look to the number 1 as your 'house number'.


nikkilc25 on December 08, 2011:

Our address is 919...9+1+9=19 so that would equal what number would that make our house? 1??

stessily on September 18, 2011:

PsychicJoanne: I stumbled upon this hub because I had an address dream early this morning (9/18): 20 Fourth Avenue. The address was repeated several times by my mother in the dream so it really stayed with me after awakening.

My current house number reduces to 7. It's so true about an unseen part of the house, as the fact that it has two floors is not at all discernible from the driveway.

Also interesting is your note about colors for #7 homes: the kitchen was painted yellow, and a bedroom was shaded somewhere between lavender and purple.

Thank you once again for your pertinent, informative, clear presentation.

Voted up+useful+beautiful+awesome+interesting!

Kind regards, Stessily

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on June 28, 2011:

I can relate to that totally myself!

NormalisCrazy from USA on June 28, 2011:

Numerology always continues to amaze me.

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on June 20, 2011:

Thanks IntimatEvolution ... I'm so pleased that you could resonate and that you enjoyed my hub.



Julie Grimes from Columbia, MO USA on June 20, 2011:

House 9 here.... I was surprised to read how accurate this was. Great hub made simple. I loved it.

Jey on June 13, 2011:

I'm in a pickle. My number is 2 and my unlucky numbers are 8 and 9. I'm going to be moving into an apartment number 8. Is there something I can do to avoid any problems. It is also a question I have, what do you do if your seat number or hotel room is your unlucky number? There must be a way to channel this energy out. Please help. Thanks

Joanne Sacred Scribes (author) from Victoria, Australia on October 17, 2010:

Hi Mel,

I too have lived in a 9 house more than once, and looking back on it, it has been at times in my life when I have been studying new modalities and the like and teaching others.

And remember, "The number 9 inspires ‘humanitarianism’".

I'd suggest you fit that bill Mel ;)

keepitnatural from Yorkshire, UK on October 16, 2010:

Really interesting. I can relate to these descriptions almost exactly for both mine & my parents house.

melclift on October 11, 2010:

I have moved from a 5 house (9 years ago) and now realise that where we are is also a 5 house... is this coincidence or something more? blessings, mel
