Time continues to accelerate and in the southern hemisphere it’s lovely to welcome the simple joys of Spring. September is a ‘5’ month (9 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 14; 1 + 4 = 5). This means that adventure, change, and freedom are all key themes, lessening the intensity brought by the Universal 4 energy of August. 

The ‘5’ energy is amplified. Not only are we in 5 month; we are also in a 5 Universal year (2 + 0 + 2 + 1). Looking more deeply into what’s occurring at the present time, we find ourselves in the midst of a huge change where old notions of identity are shifting rapidly as we begin to awaken to the new. 

A social and outgoing number, ‘5’ helps us step out of our comfort zone. This is a great month to stretch ourselves and move beyond what we usually do, especially if we’ve been feeling stuck. This is a time of reinvigoration, of progress, and a time for new dreams. Number 5 also sits on the spiritual plane bringing an increase in intuition. For many of us our search for freedom includes an inner quest to gain wisdom through spiritual understanding. 

The planetary ruler of number 5 is Mercury the messenger, overseeing the two signs of Gemini and Virgo. Delivering a rolling stone kind of energy Mercury propels us quickly forward, helping gather information, knowledge and understanding along the way. Mercury also supports us in being more flexible, both physically and mentally. 

This is a great time to avail ourselves of opportunities to learn something new. The flow of communication should improve as well as our ability to network with others. Mercury is a changeable planet, so expect frequent changes of mind.

As we move towards freedom, it is important to retain healthy boundaries. In the extreme, number 5 can be about addiction. Addictions may come in many forms and, given the unfolding of events this year, it is no surprise that we can easily become addicted to drama and fear. For me, maintaining healthy boundaries has meant avoiding media-hype by switching off my TV and radio and limiting social media time. Because ‘5’ is a social number we may also find it easier to reach out and connect with others for mutual emotional support in these turbulent times. 

If your birth date adds up to 5, or if you were born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd of the month, the ‘5’ energy is with you throughout your life. This brings an enquiring and outgoing nature, one in which friendships are readily formed. You may often have too many irons in the fire, so it’s important to maintain focus. This is especially important at the current time as you will be experiencing a top-up of the ‘5’ energy throughout September.
