Lesson 5
by G. Kumar


Astro-Numerology, the perfect synthesis between Astrology and Numerology,deals with the correspondence between the nine revolving heavens and the ninenumbers. It also deals with the effect of many Numbers----the Fadic Number,the Name Number and the Birth Number and the combined Fadic, Nameand Birth Numbers. The Pythagorean Law of Vibration states that each numberhas a particular vibration.

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
( Fadic Number is the number resulting after adding all the digits comprising yourdate 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!

In the next article we will deal with the Sixians- those who are ruled by Dione or Venus known as Freya in Norse Mythology and as Shukra in Indian Mythology.
