3 6 9 Tesla's Numerology Symbolism

3 6 9  Tesla Numerology

The Tesla coil, shadow-graphs, radios, alternating current (AC)…what do all of these things have in common? Nikola Tesla invented/discovered them. Don’t worry if you’re a little unsure as to who that is, we’ll cover that in this article. However, our primary focus will be related to something Tesla once said: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” So what is so important and why do people discuss this Tesla 369 quote even today? That’s what we’re going to take a look at!

Nikola Tesla

Tesla was a Serbian scientist born on the 10th July 1856. In 1884 he moved to America where he would go head-to-head against Edison during the power war, revolutionize radio technology and prophesies about future inventions such as mobile phones. He even designed a death ray! Tesla alleged that he had discovered a free, clean energy that could be transferred wirelessly.

Such an invention would have revolutionized the use of power throughout the world. Unfortunately, with his death in 1943, most of his work was either destroyed during a fire at his lab or was collected by the American government. So where does the Nikola Tesla numerology come into play?

The main reference point is the Tesla 369 quote mentioned previously: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” but there are other instances of the 3 6 9 numerology playing a role in Tesla’s life. For starters, Tesla would always make sure things were divisible by 3.

Whether it was the number of his hotel room, the number of napkin he used to wipe dishes (18) or the number of times he would walk around a building before entering. Some labelled this OCD but was there a larger meaning?

The Earthquake Story

There is a famous story that ties into the Nikola Tesla 369 numbers. In 1898, police and other emergency services rushed to Tesla’s lab to investigate the source of an earthquake. Tesla told the police he had nothing to do with it but revealed some time later that using a small device, he had managed to harness vibrational energy and cause it to increase exponentially until it caused said earthquake. 

The device became known as “Tesla’s earthquake machine” but later version was referred to as a mechanical oscillator.
So why is this significant?

Well, there are two reasons:
 - 1st : One year later in 1899, Tesla is believed to have caused another three earthquakes with his machine: Once on the 3rd September, once on the 6th September and again on the 9th September.

The year alone can be viewed as having three 9s if we combine the 1 and the 8. September is the 9th month of the year and of course it is no coincidence that the dates are 3, 6, and 9. The 369 Tesla numbers are everywhere!
- 2nd : Tesla compared his experiment to a small snowball rolling down a hill: it starts of tiny but slowly it builds up more and more until it’s gigantic.

It is important to note that not all the numbers impacted his life to such an extent. It was the same set of numbers, appearing a pattern that seemed to make sense. Just like this, your life can also be positively impacted by certain numbers. But you need to know which numbers have the power to bring you fortune, luck and happiness.

The Nikola Tesla Numbers

This idea of a slowly increasing snowball is vitally important when we explore the 3 6 9 numerology. It relates to an idea known as vortex mathematics. In this form of math’s, the number 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8 are the numbers that represent the physical world while the 3 6 9 numerology belongs to the spiritual world. It is through this idea that the Nikola Tesla number 3 or 6 or 9 became so important. They each relate to the concept of vibrational energy being the very foundation of everything within this universe.

In this theory, thoughts can interact with and alter aspects of the physical world because the base coding for the physical and non-physical are intertwined. Ultimately, this is how the Law of Attraction functions and it is through this notion that Tesla was able to create a device capable of causing earthquakes or propose a way to create free, wireless energy. Still unsure of the significance of the 3 6 9 numerology? Let’s take a look at some examples.


Let’s start off with a circle. I’m sure you are aware that a circle has 360 degrees: 3+6+0=9. If we half the circle the angle becomes 180 degrees: 1+8+0=9 and the same thing keep happening as you continue to divide the circle up e.g. 45 degrees: 4+5=9. We see this same effect with many other shapes too. If we look at an equilateral triangle we find that there are 3 corners, each with an angle of 60 degree (notice the appearance of the numbers 3 and 6 here). If we multiple 60 by 3 we get 180: 1+8+0=9.

The same thing happens with a square. Each of the 4 corners is 90 degrees: 90x4=360, 3+6+0=9.
We can also look at the significance of 9 even further. If you had up all the numbers before 9, you can still get 9: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36, 3+6=9 and 36 divides into 3, 6 and 9. Similarly, you can add 9 to any of these digits and return the same number e.g. 9+1=10, 1+0=1 or 9+3=12, 1+2=3 or 9+5=14, 4+1=5. So there is no denying that there is something strange going on with the Tesla numbers. We can even find instances of this within Tesla’s life.

Tesla Birth Date

You may be a little disappointed to hear that the date of Tesla’s birth doesn’t actually relate to the numbers at all, unless you include the 1+8=9 and the presence of the 6. However, the 3 6 9 numerology does interact with the Nikola Tesla birth chart. Tesla was born at midnight exactly: 12:00, 1+2+0+0=3.
Due to this date of birth, Tesla is assigned to the houses 3, 6 and 4 and one of his dominant planets is Pluto, the former 9th planet.
