In the Aztec Calendar, the number 9 is related to the wind and the rain, as they both help life flourish. The number 9 also represents balance and is the center and beginning of the development of experiences in life, which is a time of constant learning. Those born on this number are very centered and creative.
Calli is the Nahuatl word that translates to the word Casa in Spanish or House in the English language. It refers to a building or enclosure. Calli is something that protects or safeguards something.
