The Numerology of 5: Its Meaning and Significance

The number 5 resonates with speed, communication, networking, and creating new business opportunities. 5 is the number of Mercury, a small and very lively planet that quickly reaches around the sun in just 88 days. This speed allows Mercury quickly to perceive things from many different angles. Movement and activity are the essences of the number 5. The person under the influence of the number 5 loves activity and life and always has something that needs doing. It easily talks and communicates with new people.

As a 5, you are spontaneous, good at convincing others and possess a quick mind. 5's are skilled sellers, excellent networkers, and talented speakers possessing great enthusiasm and charisma. A 5 easily gets new friends and feels that everyone is equal. It has a warm and welcoming personality and thrives in an exciting social life with lots of new adventures and changes. It is good at multitasking and getting new ideas - but sometimes the 5 gets more than it can handle! It can also talk so much that people get annoyed and perceive it as selfish and manipulative.

Number 5 is full of curiosity and willingness to explore – so any job which can satiate the 5 curiosity is good for it. 5 is also good at business, making deals, selling, marketing, and anything related to communication, people, and media.

5's can also be seen as superficial as they quickly move on in life. Of all the numbers, 5 is the one that most comfortably can move in and out of relationships. The shifting mind and edginess in the number 5 can drive partners crazy who sometimes need the number 5 to sit still and contemplate.

One of the 5's most important life lessons is to learn to choose their many ideas carefully and develop the discipline to get them done. When a 5's energy is blocked, they feel stuck in their lives. They shut others out, run incessant thoughts through their minds and become heavy, narrow-minded, fearful, over-analytical, and unable to make decisions. It becomes a lot of talk but no action. When the 5 energy is too powerful, it becomes hyperactive, impulsive, irresponsible, and burns out completely. It talks too much, engages in mindless small talk, becomes superficial and untrustworthy, and has constantly fluctuating opinions and plans.

5's in balance are happy, spontaneous, witty, charming, and always in development.

The 5s greatest strength and potential are communicating and bringing people together. Spiritually, the 5 is an alchemist who can connect the 5 worlds: the physical, etheric, astral, mental, and causal planes. This ability to connect the 5 worlds allows the 5 to understand complex concepts quickly and to express these ideas in ways that are easy to understand, easy to sell, and easy to brand.

5 is under the influence of MERCURY

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and revolves around the Sun in 88 days.

This quick orbit time reflects in the way that Mercury people see life. Mercury people quickly go around any topic and can see everything from all angles simultaneously.

Mercury people are very mentally awakened and aware. They have a quick mind that can digest a lot of information, process it, and pass it on. They do everything fast – they speak fast, talk fast, eat fast, think fast, extract the essence of things quickly, and make fast conclusions.

Mercury is the Roman god for communication, business, trade, and money and has small wings on his ankles. The Mercury person loves interaction, communication, and networking.

A person is said to be "Mercurial" when you don't know where you have him/her. This is often the case with Mercury people. Their thinking and desire for freedom can sometimes be so high that they seem to slip through your fingers.

Mercury gets along with all the other planets. Its proximity to the Sun and quick orbit makes it able to see things from everybody's perspective.
