Not quite. Numerology of higher numbers isn't that simple.

First inner number: 9

The 1st unique number '9' of 9871 has a relative importance of 25.2% of the total.

It has a personality of closure about it — and it simultaneously drops clues about the future of the next cycle. As a counterweight to the number 1, which represents the raw power of creation, the compassionate number 9 adds the concept of 'endings' and a greater sense of closure.

Keep in mind though that with closure comes the idea of renewal and a future explosion of creative growth.


Second inner number: 8

The 2nd unique number '8' of 9871 has a relative importance of 11.3% of the total.
