This morning during that time between full sleep and full wakefulness the number 5 came into my mind. I had this internal conversation with myself about the number 5 – that it was such a nice number. A cozy number. A happy number, and, of course, a prime number.  I do like prime numbers.

I put no more credence in numerology than I do in astrology  but I’d rather play with numerology than with astrology.  We humans are always looking for significance and meaning, hoping, I guess, to make sense of life.

Oddly enough, about the number 5, is that my birth names each have 5 letters, I’ve always liked the symmetry of that. 3 names, 5 letters each for a total of 15. All prime numbers. Nice.

Aha – but in numerology one always reduces numbers to one digit – so 15 is 1+5 which equals 6, which is not a prime number. So sad.

The numbers 11, 22 and 33 are never reduced to one digit because they are considered master numbers, nay, even magical numbers. I always knew that about 11 and 22, learning 33 was also in that category is new information for me.

When you are playing with numerology the first characteristic you calculate is your Life Path number, and mine is 11. Yes! A life path number of 11 is awesome.

“Individuals with the Life Path number 11 are very intuitive, in fact it is the most intuitive of all numbers. They are sensitive and have a great understanding of others, and can sense a great deal about what is going on behind the scenes. For example, they will pick up on people’s relationships and health without being told anything. They are here to use their gifts of intuition, and sensitivity to help others.

Life path of 11 has the qualities of the number two magnified. If you have this number you are spiritually aware, a visionary, inspiring, charismatic, inventive, a dreamer, idealistic, and a deep thinker, and you rely on faith rather than logic to deal with the life and all it has to offer”

But here’s an interesting thing – let me know if you do this too – I ascribe qualities to numbers.  The number 5 is cozy, happy, nice.  I think of the number 5 and I automatically smile. It’s a feel good number, to me anyway.

So – what’s your number?

  1. My number is 8. Always has been since as long as I can remember. It’s like the infinity symbol which I like. That site says my life number is 6. The description didn’t really apply although maybe it did. I don’t know but I think I’m an 8! 🙂

  2. My number is 5. I used to do those things where you add your birthdate and reduce the number to a single digit, also adding the letters of your name and reducing to a single digit and mine was always 5, even using birth names, married names, shortened forms of names, I still came out 5. A Chinese horoscope/astrology quiz I once took also told me my lucky number is 5.

    1. Of course you do because numbers don’t change…1+1 will always equal 2. The interesting thing is that all the variations of your name still come to 5 – now THAT’S interesting.


  3. According to that site, I am a 6. I don’t know that I necessarily agree with the description. Too bad I have to go to work this morning. I would look into this some more.

    1. It’s kinda fun, more fun than astrology because numbers are static, they don’t change unlike astrology – Pluto is no longer a planet? Whoops. But numbers will always be what they are!
