Number 5


According to the Pythagoreans, number 5 symbolizes human perfection and marriage. Those who have this number in a key position in their numerology chart are gifted with mental alertness which reflects in their insatiable thirst for knowledge. They distinguish themselves from others through their sociability, restlessness, spontaneity as well as their love for travel. Although they may seem outgoing, spontaneous, adventurous and ahead of their time, one of their dominant drawbacks is their short temper.

Astro Tips & Tricks

When Mercury is retrograde, it's advisable that you pay more attention to both the verbal and nonverbal messages that you send. Differences of opinion may arise when you least expect it. If you're willing to listen to what the other person has to say and you're careful not to say things that can be misinterpreted, there's a good chance that something good will eventually come of any disagreement.
