Number 5

Have you ever heard of someone 'feeling like a 5th wheel?' It means that they feel different, out of place, maybe even unwanted or unwelcome. That, in a nutshell, is the energy of 5. It always seems to be on the fringe, never really a part of anything. It takes risks, breaks the rules, and brings excitement and disruption-which isn't necessarily a bad thing-to the mix. 

The problem with 5 is that it's so creative, so flexible, so energetic and outlandish, that it flits from one thing to the other-maybe even one person to the next-without taking time to lay down roots or establish a sense of normality. It needs variety and independence to stay content with life. 5's energy is pure and simple and honest, but very frequently misunderstood. 

There's nothing subtle where 5 is involved. It's got an above average streak of luck and it rides that, depending on it to get it out of whatever scrapes its impatience and unpredictability creates. That's part of its charismatic charm. It's perhaps not particularly reliable, but it's so enchanting with its innocent energy that those inconsistencies are overlooked. They're a small price to pay in order to spend time with this captivating energy. 

5 sometimes comes across as insincere or irresponsible, but it's not. It just changes directions so frequently that it appears to be superficial. The areas where 5 appears in your numerology reveals to you where you need some glue to avoid hopping from one idea to the next, or where you might be facing some extravagance and lack of discipline. 5 wants instant gratification, but it's by developing the tenacity to see things through to the end that real progress can be made.
