THE NUMBER 5
The number 5 vibrates to the planet Mercury. It represents communication, movement, and versatility. It's the number of the intellect and both written and oral expression.
A person or entity is influenced by the number 5 if born on the 5th, 14th, or 23rd day of any month in any year. People born on the 5th are stamped with the distinctive imprint of the number 5. So are those born on the 14th or 23rd day of the month, but these will, in addition, be challenged to unlock the karmic mystery of the Compound number of 14 or 23, as the case may be, in their lives. The same is true of the Single and Compound number of the name of the person or entity being analyzed.
The number 5 attitudes and characteristics will periodically be exhibited by the 5 person or entity, and will interact with that person's personality in different ways, depending on the individual Sun Sign.
When the Sun Sign is:
GEMINI, VIRGO: The 5 vibration intensifies the Sun Sign personality traits, and gives the ability to create magical changes in the appearance and behavior.
SAGITTARIUS, PISCES: The 5 vibration sometimes opposes the Sun Sign motives, but, with effort, can be used to balance the Sun Sign nature.
ARIES, TAURUS, CANCER, LEO, LIBRA, SCORPIO, CAPRICORN, AQUARIUS: The 5 vibration, due to its peculiar mingling power, either harmonizes with or sharply contrasts with the 5 person's Sun Sign characteristics, depending on the mood of the moment. The nature of the 5 is endlessly changeable and adaptable, bringing a curious tendency to be in harmony with one's self when one wishes, and at odds with one's self at other times. It's never easy to know a 5 person. The dreams change like quicksilver. When 5 is the single number of either the birth or the name of a Virgo or Gemini, the mercurial qualities are even more pronounced.
The Meaning of the 5 Vibration
The following definition of Number 5 applies to both people and entities. 5 people possess a great deal of natural charm, and, as a general rule, are innately courteous. They're quick to spot mistakes and flaws, and will not hesitate to point them out when they see them. The 5 vibration is super-critical and incapable of ignoring mistakes (their own, as well as those of others) and it's associated with a love for movement and travel. Change is a never-ending necessity for 5 people. Change of scene, chance in relationships, residence, spiritual and political beliefs, and so on. There's a strong tendency to overanalyze people and situations. It's difficult for a 5 person to submit to the feelings and the intuition; the intellect is determined to find logical answers. This obsession with analysis can ruin personal relationships for those who allow themselves to be ruled by the 5 vibration. Even love can wear out under such continual (and usually unnecessary) scrutiny. Love is made of instinct and feelings, not logic. 5 people tend to "talk love to death" instead of just letting it be, allowing it to become part of them, without questioning its whys and wherefores. Love has nothing to do with logic. Most people enjoy being in the company of a 5 person, since the outward persona is unusually pleasant and soothing. Because 5 is the vibration of intellect, those under its influence are extremely bright, of higher than average intelligence, and mentally alert. Nothing escapes their notice. They seem to be fine-tuned to the smallest detail. When financial or other circumstances don't permit the frequent travel all 5 people need, they'll travel in their minds, and since their minds are so acute, their "daydreams" are vivid enough to satisfy the restless urges within them for a time, at least.
According to the ancients, the number 5 has an association with what is called "earth-magic." Curiously, the number 5 brings a longing to believe in magic, elves, faeries, and mysteries of Nature, along with a need to pin everything down and view it under a mental microscope, two qualities which are in direct polarity to one another, causing those under the influence of 5 to find it difficult to understand themselves. 5 people are sometimes high strung; they live on their nerves, and crave excitement. They're quick in thought and decision, often impulsive in their actions. They have a keen sense of new ideas and inventions, are willing to take risks, and are born speculators. Writing, advertising, public relations, and publishing are fortunate 5 occupations. 5 people possess an admirable elasticity of viewpoint, and the ability to rebound swiftly from blows of fate, which seem to leave no long-lasting impression on them.
