The fifth month has just begun and 5 is one of the most important Cardinal Numbers. Each number carries a certain vibration but the number 5 is the most dynamic of them all. Read on to find out why the number is so important, understand its meaning, and explore it numerologically!
Why is it important?
The number 5 is prominent in many religions of the world. The pentagram is a significant symbol with a lot of meaning and powers. The Pythagoreans believed 5 to be the number resembling a union or even a marriage between the earth and the heavens.
If we analyze the Cardinal Numbers (single-digit numbers, 1 through 9), 5 stands out due to how intense, interesting, and dynamic it is. 5 is known for its powerful vibrational frequency that is beautifully combined with such positive concepts as adaptability, restlessness, independence, pioneering, innovation, adventure, idealism, and the ability to change.
The number five is symbolically connected with stars (with 5 points), human body (5 projections from the torso: the head and four limbs), 5 senses, and 5 vowels in the English alphabet.
Its frequency is the most bright and strong among other Cardinal Numbers. It is also the only single-digit number to be equally feminine and masculine. The number’s energy tends to be very bold and energetic no matter what happens. It craves changes – stability can get boring for it pretty soon. In fact, it does not only craves changes – it enjoys them due to its flexible and easily adaptable nature.
As the fifth sign of the Zodiac is Leo, the number five is deeply connected to this royal star sign. Leo also rules the fifth house in the natal astrology. Leo’s vibes are similar to those of 5: it is vibrant, bold, courageous, and never afraid to change. They’re both relentlessly charismatic, idealistic and motivated. Leo’s symbol is the lion, and we all know that lions are not to be messed with! If you try to back a Leo into a corner, they will reveal their fiery nature quicker than you can say ‘Leo’.
5 can also be lucky for those people who were born under the sign of Gemini and sometimes Virgo.
The fifth card of the Major Arcana is the Hierophant – the masculine counterpart of the High Priestess. He is also known as the Teacher and is ruled by Taurus. He is a religious figure sitting between two pillars. He wears red, blue and white robes and a three-tiered crown, which represent the conscious, subconscious and super-conscious worlds over which he rules. He can keep the balance between these worlds. He holds the Papal Cross that signifies his religious status. Two fingers on his right hand are pointing towards Heaven and two towards Earth. This card represents the path to higher consciousness. If this card appears in your Tarot reading, it may mean that you’re about to start a very important spiritual quest.
Some stones that are associated with the number five’s energy are prehnite, tiger eye, and amazonite. They are beneficial for your body and mind, and can heal your emotional wounds.
In astrology, the number is also associated with Mercury, the planet of intelligence, logic, creativity, communication, and ideas.
5 is the most open-minded of all the single-digit numbers. For those with 5 appearing consistently in their lives, personal freedom and communication are of great importance. If you’re one of these people, make sure to use your personal freedom to reach balance, harmony, and oneness with humanity.
