You’ve been hard at work transforming, restructuring, rebuilding and revamping yourself and your life for the first part of the year. Now, it’s time to have a little fun and add your own flair to the new you. May is just around the corner and with it comes the untamed and often erratic, freedom of expression five energy (also known as the artist’s number).
The five represents the heart and emotions and is usually associated with career (and seeing more clearly our path and purpose). For example, I left the corporate world in banking and dove into the spiritual work I do today while under a personal year of five and a peak cycle of five (double whammy, creates a big career shift). Five creates an undeniable desire to step out and follow the unbeaten path.
This week is a mixed bag of tricks with the four energy moving out and the five moving in. With a solid foundation in place, you’re feeling confident and safe in your footing, which is exactly why May is going to be spectacular. Your jet engines are fired up. Your runway is clear for takeoff. You’re ready to go. As the number of the heart takes hold near the end of the week, you’ll have a crystal clear view of your flight path ahead.
Caution: Being erratic in nature and the number of emotions, the fifth month can unearth any lingering relationship challenges or personal inner hurdles yet to overcome. In the negative, five can be dominating and controlling. Tread a bit lighter when confronting others, so as not to stir the emotional pot too much. Pick your battles wisely for the next several week.
This week is presenting itself as a typical one with Sunday’s energy being a serene and relaxed pure 20-two, the number of intuition and sensitivity. When we think of Sundays, that’s the typical vibe, but don’t let the all this normalcy cause your guard to go down just yet. May is creeping in and anything goes under an erratic five energy. Do enjoy this day of rest though. You’ve earned it. Take a bubble bath, daydream on the veranda or declare a marathon movie day. It will be a retreat kind of day and for good reason. Emotions and sensitivities run high under the influence of a pure two, so it’s not a great day for socialization.
Instead of dragging your feet on a typical Monday morning, today’s got an inspirational flair that will have you clicking your feet. This Monday is a three, the number of imagination and inspiration. Unlike self-reflective Sunday, Monday urges you to get out and connect with people, throw around ideas and make some magic. Three is the social butterfly number, but it’s also very indecisive (and often self-doubting and self-critical), so keep the flow light today, no major decisions should be make. It’s a Mojito Monday. Cheers!
This is the unofficial start of the work week and it’s gonna hit hard and fast, so let’s hope you enjoyed the past two days of strolling through the daisies. Today’s date is a 22-four, the Master Builder.
Consider it an architect energy where you get to be the designer of your entire day and the added perk is those double twos (number of intuition) leading the way. You’re well rested and raring to go so rise early and break out the to-do list you’ve been meaning to get to. You’ll feel like superwoman today with the amount of accomplishments you’re going to rack up. No time for relationship drama today. You’ll be lost in your own productive world.
The end of April has finally arrived, but will it bring with it a drastic slowing of outer action? Yes and no. May will bring change, both inner and outer, but in a different form. Today’s energy is a sneak peak at the next month’s overtone. You might want to throw caution to wind on many levels today.
Wednesday’s got an air of freedom and confidence that will have you feeling in charge and in control. Be careful not to dominate others with your new found power. The negative side of the five is power-seeking. It’s definitely a career day and a good energy to show your superiors your leadership skills in full bloom.
Relationship wise, the unpredictability of the five can mean you’ll love hard or crash and burn. Maybe, if you’re lucky, you’ll land somewhere in between as five can be quite compassionate and loving. Wednesday is pre-screening for the month ahead. If you’re more of an intellectual or physical-based person, now’s the time to brace yourself for somewhat uncharted territory, the emotions. The good news is that your heart is the best navigation tool you’ll ever have, if you’re willing to listen to it.
How interesting that the erratic, freedom of expression fifth month of May would begin on a four day, the number of stability, hard work and foundation that April held. Hopefully, this is a clue that May will be more constructive than destructive. It won’t feel as rewarding as Tuesday accomplishment wise, but it will leave you with a sense of stability and that everything is going to be just fine as we enter the unpredictable zone of the erratic five.
You’ve got a level head today so it a perfect opportunity to finish up with important paperwork or make some pivotal decisions you’ve been putting off. Emotions are even keeled today, so have that raw and real talk with your partner or friend you’ve been running through your mind all month.
The four energy obviously isn’t done just because the fourth month of April is over. Friday is the third day this week carrying the foundational four energy. End the work week putting in some mental elbow grease today. It’s less about outer action as Tuesday was and more about checking things off your list from an intellectual vantage point. You’re on your game with your strategic mindset and are poised to make some major headway in anything you take on.
You’ll look like a go-getter in the morning meeting because you’ve got everything figured out. Expect epiphanies with relationship challenges today.
The latter part of the week has been alternating between the four and five energies as we shift from April to May and Saturday follows suit being a five. A perfect way to end the week and ease into May’s free-flow.
The five is the freedom of expression number, so say what you mean and act on your heart’s desire today. Be true to you and keep it real. Today’s the day you’re setting your intentions for the weeks ahead so be sure to be crystal clear in what you want and need. This needs to be translated to those around you as well. Cut to the chase and tell it like it is. If you do, you’ll end the day with a sense of well-being and clarity of direction in all areas of your life. Relationship-wise, it’s a feel-good day, especially the energy of the connection between those closest to you. Love is in the air with the number of the heart and emotions leading Saturday’s parade.
