You have the ability to do so many things well. With the 5 Name you are highly flexible and well equipped to making and accepting change.

Rash, irresponsible, dislikes confinement and routine, inconsistent, unreliable, thoughtless, restless, non-committal, inactivity, stagnation, fear of change, rigid in thought, lacks vitality, fickle, endlessly distracted.

Too much of the 5 personality could bring out the tendency to become restless and impatient, which may make you inconsistent with being able to stay concentrated in any one or project for too long. You could have the tendency to become overly sensitive to boundaries that you may feel are being place upon or around you. This could be displayed more noticeably if you sense that your freedom of speech or action is being thwarted or restricted.


The focus of someone with the number 5 as their First Name number is to attain greater stability. The law of 5 is 'freedom in action'. The energy of 5 represents a variety of experiences through its developed senses, and offers many opportunities for decisions for the future. There is constant activity and curiosity about life for the 5 name vibration.

The 5 First Name individual will have the opportunity to learn the true meaning of ‘change’ in their life. Life for the 5 name energy will be filled with freedom, constant change, curiosity, adventure and un-attachment. The 5 energy will live more, see more and experience more life experiences than any other vibration.

The number 5 name symbolizes the principle of multiplicity, progression and passion. 5 signifies the need for change, variety and new growth. 5 is the broadcaster – disseminating information and asking questions. 5 is a public number – outgoing, fast-moving and mercurial. The 5 name vibration is active, daring, non-conventional, unpredictable and attracted by the physical senses and indulgences. The 5 energy is pragmatic and opportunistic and can be very, very persuasive.

The 5 name energy is the natural detective. They are very intellectual, versatile, investigative and imaginative. They are welcome to change and experience into their lives. They need freedom of thought, action, ideas and lifestyles. 5 is unconventional and does not follow the crowd or the more accepted modes of life. They need the freedom to be able to express themselves in their own way. The 5 energy does not like confinement or routine and has the need for constant change and activity in their lives, which keep them in an ever-changing lifestyle. There is great flexibility for the 5 name energy person and this allows them to stop something and go off in an entirely different direction. Their change of interest keeps them curious about life and everything in it.

The person with the 5 name energy is playful and fun. They need to explore their world inside and out. The 5 loves to flirt and they are usually the life of the party.

5 is the number of freedom, fun and an adventure. If people under the 5 vibration do not live their lives filled with adventure, their lives may become too 'dramatic', as they look for activity and will create chaos if bored. People with the 5 energy name have a hard time settling down and have a fear of being trapped and smothered, particularly in relationships.

Responsibility is not easy or comfortable for the 5 name energy person, as responsibility requires routines and restrictions. The freedom-loving 5 needs to delegate routine activities to others, and be free enough to satisfy their curiosity so that they can have personal freedom in every direction and on every level. They love travel, sport, languages, arts, science and new people, places and things.

The 5 vibration loves pleasure and needs to watch over-indulgence and impulsiveness. This impulsive nature allows them to enter a situation and be able to discard it just as easily. The 5 energy does not hold onto anything that creates monotony in their life. 5 abhors routine and a dull, monotonous occupation is 'death' to them.

5 is the number of progress and growth, for without change there is stagnation.

The 5's personal life may be full of unexpected change and variety. At times they may experience too many changes at once, and this can make them scatter their energies. This can lead to a lack of application and discipline, which leaves nothing of lasting value.

The outer-personality of the 5 First Name person is witty, enthusiastic and full of activity. They are a natural entertainer, using their natural traits of cleverness and charm. Social activities are alive when the fun-loving 5 energy is present. Life is never dull for the 5 name energy and for those around them.

The 5 energy appears to be outgoing and extrovert - but the natural introverted energy leads them to an interest in the unknown and metaphysical studies.

Relationships for the 5 First Name person are always in transition and go through many changes. They may have many acquaintances, but few lasting relationships.

A marriage relationship needs the recognition of the 5's requirements in regards to freedom, change and activity. Their partner needs to understand and accept that they need their personal freedom and cannot be clung to. The 5 name energy has a great flare for living, and enjoys the good things in life. They are happy to share these with their partner.

Dependence is not a trait the 5 name person enjoys at all. Independence and freedom come more easily to them, especially when they have material wealth to go along with living life to the fullest. Most anticipate challenge, and are able to accomplish the seemingly impossible. The progressive 5 name energy needs a good education which allows them the freedom of abundance for living life to the full.

The 5 vibration needs to cultivate patience and tolerance, as they have a tendency to act and speak with haste and impatience.

The lesson for the 5 name person is that 'one must learn that true freedom can only come from within.'

All too often, the 5 First Name person seeks their freedom by moving away and turning their backs on all situations and people from which they can learn the most.
