The number 5 in numerology is all about change and transformation. After building a foundation under the number 4, it’s now time to build the structure, and that calls for transformation, which means change. It’s said that people resist change, but I don’t think this is necessarily true, because we are changing all the time, it’s just that we don’t have to work at it. We are different than we were last year, we’ve changed, but overall it just happened – unless you were consciously making shifts, of course. We change jobs, homes, geographical locations, hair style, clothing, etc. Change happens, whether we plan for it or not.
What happens with change is transition and then transformation. If we don’t recognize and accept the change that is occurring (say you’ve lost one job and now have another one), we can miss the transition, the new feeling that comes with change. Embrace the change and recognize the difference in being, and a transformation takes place. It’s important to be cognizant of the shifts occurring as they do; it makes the end result more stable and powerful.
If the foundation is strong, the structure will grow in strength. On the Bagua the fifth gua is Wealth and Opportunity, so building a sound structure will aid in bringing in and holding abundance, on whatever level is needed. Stay conscious of the shifts happening in your life, know that they are happening for a very good reason (if you didn’t need them, you wouldn’t’ be having them!) and get ready for a new structure and transformation on the other side – it’s “good feng shui!”
