Numerology is based on the idea that our universe can be broken down into numbers and that everything in the world simultaneously comes from, and equates to, these powerful numbers. Thus, connections can be found between numbers and personality traits, events, circumstances, a person's purpose/destination and more. The first step towards exploring numerology and understanding the impact numbers have on your life, is an in-depth study of your life path number. This article analyzes life path number five.

In order to calculate your life path number, simply add together the day, month and year of your birth, until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born on the 17th of January, 1994, you add 1+7+1+9+9+4 = 32 = 3+2= 5. Your life path number is 5.

What Does a Life Path Number Five Mean?

People with a life path number five are impatient, impulsive and constantly on the move. They are party animals who like to take risks and are not afraid of changes. In fact, they crave them. Number five is the number of change and progress. This means that those with this life path number get bored very easily, have a revolutionary mindset and are non-conformists. They don't hesitate to speak their mind. Moreover, number fives are in love with travel and the idea of meeting new people from different cultures and backgrounds—their circle is definitely not a small one. They are very quick learners while they think, act and take decisions just as quickly, which makes them ideal for business, marketing or sales. On the other hand, their chaotic life and lack of discipline keep them from reaching their full potential and result in them wasting their time and energy in meaningless activities.

Fun Facts About the Number Five in Numerology

What's a Relationship With the Number Five Like?

When it comes to relationships, people with this life path number are free spirits and find it hard to commit themselves to just one person. It usually takes a very long time for them to get married and/or have kids. Their greatest love, along with travel, is freedom, which makes them choose open relationships more often than not. When (or if) someone finally manages to make them settle down, they should work hard in order to keep their interest, since, as mentioned above, this number gets bored very easily. They are very sexual, sensual and lustful but also affectionate and compassionate.

What Do Number Fives Find Attractive?

Well, the good news is that the number five is attracted to almost everyone, regardless of their race, age, sexuality or culture. The bad news is that it's very difficult for people with this life path number to settle down and commit to just one person. Although there are no limits or standards to who they will be attracted to, they naturally prefer individuals with the same mindset as them, travel addicts, open, social people who seek adventure and change. Those with a progressive mind and revolutionary ideas will without doubt pique this number's interest.

Lessons People With This Life Path Number Need to Learn

Each life path number has different challenges and offers different lessons. People with a life path number five like to live in the moment, seek change and see life as an ongoing, ever-changing adventure. All of the above, however, makes their life chaotic, unstable, with a lack of focus and direction. Thus, a huge lesson they need to learn is to lead a life with a purpose, to know where they're going and why they want to go there and make a constructive use of their freedom. Number fives should also learn to be more patient, accept that routine is sometimes inevitable in life and not panic when faced with the idea of being restricted. Fun, adventure and change are great, but there are situations in life that require a more serious, mature approach.
