What Does Life Path Number 5 Mean?

According to the numerology definition of 5, you are a freedom-seeker, which means practically by definition that you can’t be one hundred percent comfortable in anyone else’s world. However, although you may never be quite what the outside world wishes you were, at the same time, the number 5 meaning can guide you to a life that is genuinely fulfilling and meaningful for you – and you are the one who really should be fulfilled by it. Embrace the restlessness that you experience in the face of the mundane, not as a sign that you will never be happy, or as an indication that you’re right to be afraid of routine, but instead as a signal that you need to find other sources of joy and wonder in your life.
Not all sources of joy need to be earth-shaking ones that prevent you from settling into a career or marriage.

Can you feel the power of your Life Path number 5? Do you seek variety in life, and push back against anyone who tells you that you should live a more routine existence? Do you deal with a secret well of fear that you will never be as free as you want to be? How will you harness your destiny number’s natural energy to fulfill your goals and reach your dreams?
