Astro-Numerology - Lesson 5
by G. Kumar

When the Revealed Science of the Heavens ( Astrology ) and the science of
numbers merge, we have a lovely resultant science, Astro-Numerology.
The great Paracelsus averred that the knowledge of the mysteries of the
Universe must perforce be occult as they are not for the uninitiated.
These sciences play an important role in our lives - for they are
pointers to the Ultimate Reality!

Effects of Fadic Number Five

If the Fivian is YOU!

( Fadic Number is the number got after adding all the digits comprising your
date of birth ).

Your numerological number is 5 and Your Life Controller is
Mercury. The basic nature of this planet is frailty and in-
constancy. In fact the word mercurial is derived from it.

Despite their inconstancy they are intelligent & shrewd and
they jump into fields where they can make easy money
hating the hazardous and the laborious paths. They take
decisions quickly without much aforethought. They are very
greedy merchants and involved in stockmarket dealings. They
have remarkable resilience.

No crisis can shake them. Their lucky days are Wednesday
Thursday and Friday. The best days they should select for
their efforts are 5 14 23 . Their main drawback is that
they use all their creative energy and becomes subject to
nervous complaints. They are irate to a fault and cannot
face failure.

Cicero Duke of York & the Prince Of Wales were born under
this number.

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Five is considered very sacred.
The Absolute Self is enveloped by five concentric sheaths - the material,
the mental, the vital, the intellectual & the blissful. The entire
Universe is composed of the Elemental Five - earth, fire, water, air
& ether. Our sensory world is relayed to us by the Five sense organs.
In Sidereal Astrology the Fifth House is important as it is one of the
moral triangles. In Transcendental Meditation, the Fifth state is the
all-important Cosmic Consciousness. Five is very prominent in the
Pythagorean system. No wonder Pythogoras exulted in the mystery
of the Number Five!

Dione or Venus known as Freya in Norse Mythology and as Shukra
in Indian Mythology.
