Fate Number 5
Having this fate seems to be the easiest of all. It is an open fate
where expansion, traveling and learning are key words for an understanding
of its essence. Pleasure and light are also characteristics of such
a fate, but there are traps on the way. A ceiling on desires is needed
if such individuals are to increase their consciousness. The senses
dominate those having (5) as a fate number and these must be controlled
if spiritual growth is to be achieved. The easiest aspect of life
to improve is material growth. The souls who have chosen this fate
are tempted by the good things in life, but higher consciousness is required
to learn to control the senses, sooner or later. Those having (5)
as a fate number are flexible by nature: they take their chances, are open
to new ideas and are often independent, tolerant and trustworthy.
Frequently, people with (5) as a fate number have worked their way up to
the position they hold in society. They do not have much difficulty
in gaining riches and, should they lose everything, they take it very calmly.
By and large, they are lucky in many areas: in work, even though they may
change jobs many times: and in their love lives they rarely die of a broken
heart. Their ability to adapt is excellent. This makes them
capable, for example, of staying in a foreign country for long periods
of time. This fate teaches people the importance of acknowledging
where senses predominate in life; pain occurs as often as well-being, pleasure
and happiness. It is not enough, however, to repress the senses for
pretending that desires do not exist is self-defeating.
There is nothing like pain to show people which desires are good for them.
Those having (5) as a fate number are exposed to temptations that prepare
the way for learning to control the senses. This is something every
human being must learn, but those having (5) as a fate number get better
opportunities than others for learning this.
