Numerology Destiny Number 5

Learning about your destiny number can tell you a lot about what you can expect from your life path.

Destiny is like a path or road that you are traveling, which is why destiny numbers are also known as life path numbers.

Knowing your life path number is like possessing a road map to help you navigate the twists and turns on the road of life.

In Numerology, it is understood that God, the Universe or source energy communicates to each and every one of us through the use of numbers, providing us clues about where we have been, where we are going and what we need to fulfill our ambitions.

Numerologists use the numbers associated with our date of birth and our origins to calculate the five major keys to our Numerology Chart.

The destiny of Life Path number is one of these key numbers.

Identifying Your Destiny Number

Numerologists determine your life path or destiny number by adding the separate digits from a person’s birth date.

Someone born on April 10, 1980 would compute their destiny like this:

4+1+0+1+9+8+0= 23

If the digits in your date of birth result in a two-digit number, you then combine them to form a root number.

The only exceptions are known as Master Numbers like 11, 22 and 33.

The Meaning of Destiny Number 5

When the number 5 is your destiny number it means that you are an adventurer or explorer, navigating the world through your sensory experience.

You are strong and reliable, independent and happy.

People with a life path number of 5 are generally attractive and make a good impression on everyone they meet.

The number 5, being associated with the five senses and the vagaries of sense experience, is associated with change. Sensory experience is always fleeting and changing.

Christ warned that building your life on sensory experience is like building your house on shifting sands.

This may be why the Major Arcana card in the Tarot that is associated with the number 5 is the Hierophant or The Pope card. The first pope, St. Peter was also known as The Rock that Christ built the church on.

In this way, the Hierophant card in its association with the number 5, reminds those with this life path to identify the lasting and permanent aspects of their experience that are enduring.

Romance for Those With Destiny Number 5

When you are attractive, personable and make a good impression on people you will likely have little trouble finding a romantic partner, so it makes sense that those with a destiny number of 5 are highly sought-after romantic partners.

However, fives also are adventurous and seek pleasure by nature.

People who are strongly influenced by the 5 vibration will certainly be more sexually active than others.

However, fives that are in touch with the spiritual side, as exemplified by The Hierophant archetype, may be devoted to a single partner and view romantic love as an expression of their deep spiritual experience.

Heeding the Call of Spirit

Destiny number 5 is so bound up with sensory experience that it can be very difficult for those who feel this vibration strongly to hear the deep call of spirit operative in their lives.

However, having the destiny number of 5 can indicate that we need to open up to the deeper, spiritual aspects of our experience.

As a karmic lesson, the life path number of 5 may indicate that you need to learn how to accept change in your life.

Perhaps in a former life you resisted change very strongly, limiting your experience to a fixed and boring routine.

This karmic lesson may have manifested as a call to adventure and a love of sensual experience.

The Tarot Card at the fifth station of the Major Arcana, The Hierophant, serves as a warning to all fives who may find themselves over-indulging in sensual experience.

Fives will do well to take up some kind of spiritual practice like yoga or meditation, or get out in nature regularly.

This will help them quiet their minds and hear the call of spirit residing within them more clearly.
