Know what’s in store for your personal year 5
Richard Buckminster gave us a fine rant that perfectly sums up the design of Personal Year 5. The American architect, designer, inventor, writer and futurist published more than 30 books and invented or popularised terms such as ‘earthship’, ‘ephemeralisation’ and ‘synergy’. Buckminster wrote: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
And that is exactly what will happen in your 5th personal year. Your thirst for freedom and exotic adventure must be satisfied, otherwise you won’t be able to complete the projects you have in mind. Think of the 5th year as a change of scenery, a patchwork of new experiences. As the old saying goes, “freedom defined is freedom denied”. This has never been truer than at this point in your 9 year cycle.
The 5th year is the one that divides the cycle into two equal parts. It is therefore the year of transition. If, after calculating your personal year, you come up with the number 5, take the time to look back over the last 4 years and make a list of the projects you have in hand. You’ll then be able to approach this pivotal year with peace of mind, knowing exactly what you need to accomplish next.
Personal Year 5 : Looking back to move forward
5 is the number of variety, travel and discovery. It’s also the number of change, chance, belief systems, the sudden, the unexpected and the unusual. As you can see, the 5th personal year will bring its share of surprises. To cope with them, remember this: awareness of true reality is the best safeguard during this exciting but unpredictable period.
You are now halfway through the full 9-year cycle. Whatever its content, the first 4 years are behind you. The last 4 years lie ahead. The 5th personal year is like a rear-view mirror: it allows you to look back and move forward. Prepare yourself for a significant change in your life. Those who are afraid of risk can experience this change through a series of small changes that will gradually lead to a whole new way of living and then a new understanding of life itself.
Personal Year 5 : the widest and busiest route
The main challenge you’ll face in your 5th personal year will be to distinguish your true desires from your fleeting whims. To do this, draw on your experience of the previous 4 years and do some deep introspection. Don’t fall into the trap of exhaustion: don’t seize every opportunity that comes your way. If you do, you’ll end up confused. It will limit your ability to focus on what really matters. You then run the risk of paying attention to your whims and fancies of the moment and neglecting what can improve your life.
Numerology often uses comparisons. If we were to compare personal years with a concrete road, the 5th year would be the widest and busiest, the one with the most junctions. Most drivers are looking for a change of direction. Without a clear destination and sense of direction, accidents happen, people get lost and end up in places they didn’t want to be. However, remember that even the best plans can change. Your hard-won flexibility during the first 4 years of your cycle will come in handy again this year.
The year of design par excellence
Each of the 12 months of your 5th personal year will be an opportunity to become aware of a mistake you’re making or a time-consuming project that’s not coming to fruition. Take the opportunity to adjust what needs to be adjusted and abandon what no longer makes sense. You’ll gradually free up your time and channel your energy more effectively. Re-learn how to relax. Develop your ability to detach from reality and breathe. This powerful sense of stillness within your bubble will help you to do what you need to do, regardless of external circumstances. The vibrations of the 5th personal year are conducive to procreation in its original sense.
This year is perfect for conception: the conception of a child, an idea, a plan… It will also be the year of your body. It will remind you through subtle signals that it supports you in everything you do. This will be an opportunity to take care of it, to heal it and then to strengthen it. Be aware of your physical abilities and work to make your body more comfortable.
