Challenges of the Destiny Number 5

As a destiny number 5 it is important that you mix with like minded people. You need the freedom to be expressive at all times. You may become frustrated with the boredom or stagnant nature of certain personalities. You can often become too restless, always seeking the next big buzz. Your sense of adventure and free spirit can cause you to behave irresponsibly at times. You must try not to get too wrapped up in your own adventures and remember to be aware of other people’s feelings.

5 is the path of Change, Freedom, and Physical reality.  Throughout your life, you will learn, by trial and error, about your own physical presence on this Earth and the effect that your presence has on other people.  The 5 destiny emphasizes your physical body, sexual energies, and the way in which your body, mind, and emotions are able to adapt to changing environments.  You will learn, in various and unusual ways, that physical matter changes constantly and that you can either prosper from these changes or be overwhelmed by them.

Learning about the physical is one of your main purposes for being here. Eventually, you will experience the freedom and relaxation that comes when your body, mind, and emotions have equal acceptance for each other.  You see, this balance IS freedom.  Do not be afraid to admit that you really do need freedom to think, move, and feel in the way you know is right for you.

The 5 energy enables you to change your outward appearance and your inner attitudes to suit a great variety of environments, contacts, and encounters. This gives you the ability to be all things to all people and to fit in, very naturally, to any situation.   A 5 can spend a whole lifetime wondering why his or her personality cannot remain consistent.  “Why can’t I just be myself no matter where I am or who I’m with?”  The truth is that you are brilliantly adaptable.  Your ever changing personality is who you are.  It is the result of being yourself, being honest with your feelings, and hoping for the same spontaneity from others.  These marvellous characteristics are what make other people feel so relaxed in your presence, and should never be curbed by your own or society’s misconceptions about free expression.  Your adaptability is one of the principle talents life has given you so that you can comfortably experience more variety than most others.

5 is a very active and unpredictable path.  It is so filled with sudden and unusual events and opportunities that you could easily become confused by it, or afraid of it.  Consequently, you could miss out on the abundance of experience it offers.  And that, dear 5, is exactly what your life offers if you decide to take advantage of it – an abundance of experience.  But in order to utilize this energy, you may have to reach a deeper understanding of the word experience.

Some 5s are so afraid of accidents and mistakes that, instead of flowing confidently with this unpredictable energy, they cling to the safe and familiar with all their might.  Although they can see and feel the excitement that is passing them by at every moment, they are too afraid to let go, take the plunge, and see where life takes them.  Once in a while, these 5s do let go – or the 5 current becomes so strong that they are literally swept away into some kind of adventure – only to miss the excitement of it all because fear has made them believe that they were simply out of control.  Then they grab on to the first available semblance of stability and settle there, unfulfilled, yet again.  The freedom of the 5 destiny must, therefore, start as a feeling – the desire for freedom – which, of course, can only come from deep inside.

Yes, the pace of the 5 destiny can seem a little wild at times but, like it or not, you are here to gain experience of it.  You must allow dealing with unpredictability to become your second nature – your expertise.  You can amaze others with your resourcefulness in a crises, but may also need to use this talent to take care of some basic needs of your own.

Consider the mistakes you have made in your lifetime.  On the 5 path, you will find that you constantly repeat the same old mistake over and over, even though it appears to be in a different form each time.  Refusing to let go of what is safe and familiar,, so that you can discover alternatives, is a large part of what causes a mistake to be repeated.  Admitting to your mistakes can be a battle in itself.  Accept that mistakes are inevitable in your life, because that is how 5 learn new and wonderful things.

Your stubbornness to admit to mistakes is actually the emotion of fear.  It is natural for you to be afraid when you do not know what you are dealing with. But you must learn to accept fear as a natural and sometimes life saving emotion.  Until you learn to face your fears head-on, your denial of them will keep you from expanding or enjoying your life.  Fear arises when you are not focused on the reality that surrounds you.  Therefore, the ability to concentrate, is one of the prime lessons to be learned on this path. Otherwise your attention will be scattered in too many directions, mistakes will be made but not recognized, and nothing substantial will be achieved.

The only way you can progress, discover new realities, and broaden your horizons, is to allow yourself to learn what needs to be learned when a mistake is made.  Some 5 do recognize their mistakes.  They promise themselves that they will never make that mistake again.  But they are afraid to make the changes that not repeating the mistake requires of them. Consequently, they change one approach with another approach which is usually just another form of the same mistake.

Very often, on the 5 path, a totally new direction must be taken, which means having the courage to let go of what has become the norm.  There will be a time in your life, or several of them, when you will have to make a giant leap of faith for which you have had no previous experience.  By understanding and accepting that this is the way you are meant to proceed, you will find that both your focus and your confidence expand.  Your fear of the unknown is then replaced with an exciting sense of adventure and the knowledge of what must be feared and what need not be feared at all. Some 5s love the concept of adventure but, instead of enjoying their own fast-paced and unusual episodes, there may be a tendency to live vicariously through the exciting lives of other people.  Again, it is unaddressed fear which is making them avoid their responsibility to live their own lives.  This approach can never bring lasting happiness.  5 is the path of freedom.  And, yet, so many 5 tie themselves down to mundane routines and situations in which freedom does not exist.  In order to be happy, 5 need time and space which they can call their own.  And they need to move around without restriction.  Most 5 love to travel.  If they do not actually get to travel the world, they usually satisfy this need by fantasizing about far off exotic places, or by allowing their minds to wander into some very unusual scenarios. When the free and adventurous 5 imagination is put to practical use, however, great accomplishments usually follow.

In order to gain the experience of life you need, you must be totally honest with yourself about the mistakes you always make – those things you do which never work for you and always result in unhappiness, loneliness, and disappointment.  First you must stop repeating this mistake.  Catch yourself in the act.  Take a very different approach, the approach you should have taken all along but were afraid to.  This is how you not only learn from a mistake, but also prosper from it.  This is when a mistake is no longer a mistake, but experience!

This is the way in which your life must proceed – if it doesn’t work this way, then try it another way – until you become experienced enough to travel the 5 energy with a greater degree of self-confidence.  At this point, your life reaches calmer waters because you are no longer struggling against the tide. Then you will be able to see the broader horizons and the abundance of unusual opportunity that are yours for the taking.

Many 5s never realize that life has given them the precious gift of freedom. Many feel alone in this world, or struggle with unsatisfying relationships and wonder why this is their “lot” in life.  It is crucial that you realize that you are not alone – you are not tied down – you are free to take care of your responsibilities in a way that will also accommodate your own needs.

The 5 path is an unconventional one which is meant to take you far from your birth place.  So, if you feel “out of place”, know that your right place is out there in the big world, dreaming big dreams, achieving big goals, and embracing all that is different, unusual, unique, exotic, and exciting.  You are a citizen of the world.  As such, you must learn to let go of prejudices and judgments, and embrace different cultures without losing your own unique identity.

There is a strong tendency on the 5 path to overindulge in food, alcohol, drugs, sex, extravagance, gambling, the limelight, and other areas where balance needs to be maintained.  Babies are often conceived at too young an age, and marriage is often rushed into as a means of stability. It is not unusual for 5 to marry several times or make commitments that, eventually, cannot be upheld.  Changes of heart and mind are frequent in the life of a 5. That is not to say that you cannot love or be loved on a very profound level. But it is likely that true and lasting love will be found along with maturity. In many ways, 5sare the late-bloomers of the neurological spectrum.  But do remember that maturity has nothing to do with age but, rather, experience.

Remember that your physical body is an integral part of you – the vehicle which will transport you through this exciting journey of yours.  Your body needs to be well maintained and lovingly nurtured.  Often it is fear of freedom that causes these overindulgence; a subconscious rejection of freedom that creates a need to become dependent instead.  Too much focus on the needs of others, and a lack of focus on what you desire, causes you to deny your fear of freedom even further.  The trick here is that knowing what you want, focusing on it, and realizing that you do not – must not – become entangled in superficial matters that are not a part of your desired course.  It is important to have a goal and to realize that each step you take toward it is a goal in itself.

Freedom is your destiny and, so, you must refrain from activities that diminish it.  You must learn to pick and choose very carefully among the many opportunities that come your way.  Seek only those activities and people that will be of benefit to you.  Learn not to waste your time or scatter your energies in too many directions.  Learn the difference between genuine excitement and recklessness. You will probably have many episodes where you are footloose, fancy free, and without a specific goal, but the frustration of moving from place to place, from person to person, from mediocre opportunity to mediocre opportunity, will eventually outweigh the delight.  Freedom does not mean carelessly severing existing ties or rushing headlong into the unknown.  More often, it means freeing yourself from your own misconceptions and mistakes so that you can fulfill a dream that is yours.

You are probably known for your versatility and clever resourcefulness, but in order to feel the great satisfaction that 5 offers, you will need to specialize and become an expert at something you love doing.  Look to the new and progressive rather than the outdated and conventional.  You are a quick thinker, with a real talent for analyzing and investigating, although you do not always use this talent to further your own interests.  Your curiosity, restlessness, and impatience can cause difficulties in staying focused.  One of the biggest mistakes 5s make is to give up on an experience before enough time has passed to gain the expertise needed, and then rush on to something new which will probably be dropped in the same way.  It is impossible to truly know something if you have not experienced it.

On the 5 path, you have more chance of finding love that is real because real love thrives in freedom.

If your freedom starts to take away from someone else’s – neither person can be free.  Certainly, you will have to consider your relationships carefully to allow for your free and open 5 personality.  You cannot survive in a relationship of rules, insecurity, dominance, or mistrust.  You may have a difficult time in understanding your “role” in a relationship, and this creates a problem in itself.  You see, your role is simply to be who you are. When you least expect it, you will meet another or others who will love you simply for who you are and not for what you can do for them.  Your free lifestyle will be part of what they love instead of an intimidating factor. These people are not something you go out and look for.  They appear, as if by magic, when the time is right.

Your natural desire for freedom has made you an attractive and broad minded individual who is able to relate to people from all walks of life.  Your collection of friends and acquaintances are certainly a diverse bunch of people who are probably scattered all over the world.  Friendship is very important to you.  There are certain people in your life who you may rarely see on a physical level, but your bond with them is unbreakable because of a mutual love of freedom, and of each other.  When you are a friend, you are a friend for life.  And you possess a very special gift which your friends are only too aware of: you have the power to say or do something that comes from your big heart and which will totally change another’s life – forever.   While it is true that nobody can own you, those you have touched with your special open expression will never want to lose you or be able to forget you.
