Numerology: Secrets of Your Birthday. 5th, 14th, 23rd – Number 5 Life Path

If you were born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd day of any month you have a Number 5 Life Path Master Number.

There’s a fabulous duality about anyone born under a Number 5 Life Path number – you may literally have two sides to your personality! Keen-witted, intuitive, restless, perceptive and analytical you have an affinity with people born under the signs of Gemini and Virgo regardless of what your own sign may be. You are incredibly adaptive and will make the most of whatever life hands you. You need variety and change but you need to watch that this doesn’t get out of hand and you change things for change’s sake – otherwise you can end up in trouble.

You need to take time to develop your ideas. As you usually have lots of them it is also advisable that you learn to focus on one and see it through to completion rather than scatter your energy. Otherwise you will end up achieving nothing despite your enviable abilities to come up with them and people will dismiss you as a talker rather than a do-er. You are likely to travel a lot during your lifetime and will meet many people along the way and although you may have friends in many places you may feel you lack really close ones. The answer to this is not to clip your wings and stop moving around but to work on your authenticity. You can be a bit of a chameleon taking on the characteristics of other people and you need to connect to your own identity if you want to grow close connections rather than superficial ones. This can often be the result of being told in childhood that you have to behave in a certain way. The result in adulthood is that you are not longer sure of who you are and as social success is important to you, you will become a mirror for others in order to achieve this rather than being yourself. Paradoxically however, this can end up having the opposite result as people can sense they are not dealing with the real ‘you’.

You are usually a person who enjoys city life and are therefore likely to reside in one more than other numbers. You also enjoy being seen in the right places with the ‘right’ people but who is really ‘right’? Your number means that during your lifetime you are likely to cross paths with crooks, con artists and criminals and possibly socially. That dashing new acquaintance may not be on the ‘A’ list but on the FBI’s ‘Most Wanted’ – so take care!

As a child you probably learned to talk at a very young age but often your number means you were fussed over by a parent with the result you may be obsessed with tidiness and personal grooming as an adult. You will also be very house proud and want your home to look good – just in case you get unexpected visitors. You will also redecorate, refresh or upgrade your home in some way regularly. However, be aware that others may envy what you have as your number often indicates someone you invite into your home will take something belonging to you.

In your relationships you need intellectual as well as physical attraction. Yours is the number of attracting opposites when it comes to relationships and the close friendships you do make. If this happens to you and you start wondering what you are doing with someone so different to you, step back and use your analytical abilities here. When you do you will see that they in fact fill in the ‘gaps’ for you as you do for them which is why the relationship works. You may have more than one marriage in your lifetime and you are also the number most likely to out-live your partner so do make provision as you get older for what you would do if you spend the final years of life alone.

You’ll have many ups and downs financially during your lifetime but unlike many other numbers, you won’t let any setbacks get you down. You will make do with what you have at the time and wait and work for things to improve. A great many people who are a 5 get a great deal of satisfaction from working out of home or having their own business. Travel is an area you would enjoy working in but whatever you choose it has to offer you mental stimulation otherwise you will quit and move on to something else. You love an audience so some kind of role that puts you in front of one or in the public eye is also a possibility for a 5. If you are a 5 searching for your soul path or unhappy in your career, think back as to whether you felt pressured into the path you’ve taken. In particular, think about your parent of the same sex and if you are living out their ambitions or an image they had for you, rather than your own. If the answer is ‘yes’ then your soul growth lies in having the courage to live your life on your terms and not theirs. This is your life – so live it!
