The Stars

More times than not, I get bored with my daily routine. Not the kind of bored that I don't have anything to do kind of bored.  There is always laundry, yard maintenance, dusting or cooking to keep me busy.

I'm talking the kind of bored that makes me spend time watching mindless T.V., surfing the net for nothing in particular, reading trash e-mails, now....blogging about stupid stuff that has no relevance other than to give me an outlet for personal entertainment.

Earlier tonight, in one of my extreme bored modes I opened an e-mail I received from some kind of Numerology Website. Curiosity always kills the cat, plus things of the occult nature have always intrigued me. Not that I take much stock in it, but like to keep an open mind just in case. After all, there are many people that believe in the invisible man in the sky, why should this be any different??

I read the e-mail instructions to figure my "number"  based on a simple calculation of my birth date. My calculations made me a number 5.  Already....iinteresting that my favorite number has always been 5...

I read the summary of characteristics for the "number 5"....

The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of masculine and feminine qualities, in general the 5 is slightly more feminine -- albeit a daring, tomboyish kind of feminine, with nothing demure or submissive about her. Hmmm....just in the first paragraph my number pegged me to a T.  I assumed it was most likely beginners luck so I read on....

The 5 is extremely independent in mind and soul. She is an adventurer and a risk-taker who has a hard time staying in one place, in one job, in one house or in one relationship. Change is an absolute necessity, and yet the 5 is surprisingly loyal. The 2 and 6 are the most harmonious relationship numbers but either one will, when temptation is strong enough, cheat on his or her partner. The 5 will not. The 5 may break off a relationship due to her restless nature, but while in a relationship she will not deceive her partner. However, when she is not in a relationship she considers herself free to date anyone she chooses and has no problem going out with a different person every day of the week  Wow, this thing has me pegged! I am very independent and refuse to let people run my life or make decisions for me...hence, most likely the reason me and my mother never quite meshed.  I also love change...hence, the reason I packed up and moved 500 miles away from my hometown and always have my next destination lurking in the back of my mind.  I bore easily and need the fix that keeps me "changing". I am very loyal to those I love and care about, but I do have a very "wild hair" that has been known to get me into trouble. I also notice the #2 is a harmonious relationship for me. Hubby is a #2 and we happen to be very harmonious 95% of the time...and no, it doesn't  surprise me that  my #2 could "slip up" when tempted. 

The 5 generally does not find a suitable career until she has tried a number of different jobs, many of them lasting barely long enough to warrant a full paycheck, especially if there is any kind of routine involved; boredom sets in almost immediately and the 5 simply cannot put up with anything predictable or repetitive.  Many 5s take up careers that require travel or otherwise offer a change of environment regularly, becoming tour guides, salespeople, small business owners, independent consultants, and so forth. Yep, I hate repetitiveness and am always looking for a ways to change things up. I hate doing the same thing twice. The idea of traveling or being a tour guide is EXTREMELY intriguing to me. I could also easily be a salesman if I was selling something I really believed in.  The only way I would be satisfied with owning a business is if it were profitable enough that I would be able to travel on it's revenue.

The 5 can adjust quickly to pretty much anything coming her way. On top of that, the 5 is usually tall and good-looking, charming, and charismatic -- all qualities that support her in her career once she sets her mind to it. In addition, the 5 is versatile, adaptable, smart, progressive and tolerant. Anything conventional bores her, while she is drawn to the eccentrics and misfits of society. She is a social creature, funny and uplifting, and very good at making others feel comfortable around her. She is generally well-liked and is often surrounded with friends and acquaintances. However, she also tends to polarize people and those that don't like her tend to be the uptight, self-righteous and judgmental kind. This one is questionable. Anybody can adjust if they have to. As far as tall, good-looking, and charming,??..not so sure. Nowadays I just feel like an old hag most of the time...maybe because of the boredom thing.  It is true that I have always been attracted to the weirdos...

I am social...or at least I used to be when I was single and free from the drudgery of wife and motherhood. Not sure if I'm all that funny....I find myself amusing anyway.

There are a lot of people that don't like me and now that it's mentioned it does tend to be the uptight, judgemental types....most likely why I have an aversion to religious folk.

Polarizing? Yep, as unappetizing as it may be that's me for sure.

But perhaps the most dominating trait in the 5 is her uncompromising demand for freedom in thought and action. She makes up her own mind, rebels against any and all dogmas and ideologies, and does not allow herself to be absorbed into clubs, cults, religious sects or ideologies of any kind. Her adventurous, daredevil nature may get her to ride motorcycles but she will not ride with a large group. Chances are she will be rather opinionated and passionate about political issues, but she will not be a member of any party or be nailed down in any way. She changes her mind regularly, but never without good reason. She cannot be controlled but she is flexible and can be converted if the argument is solid and makes sense. She has a healthy sense of humor and doesn't sweat the little things, but she carries her heart on her sleeve and it is not at all uncommon for her to give her heart to the wrong person, as she is not the greatest judge of character. Hit the nail on the head on this one 

On the negative side, she can be selfish, thoughtless and irresponsible. She rarely considers the future beyond tomorrow or next week, and worrying is not in her nature. She tends to procrastinate and can be unreliable. However, the most common downfall for the 5 is a tendency to experiment with sex, drugs, alcohol and other weaknesses of the flesh. A desire for instant gratification can be her downfall; add to that a sense of invulnerability, lack of discipline and restraint, and you have a recipe for disaster. Yep, again me...selfish, thoughtless, and irresponsible. I do live my life day by day. No, I don't think about what may or may not happen in the future because in my mind the future is no guarantee. I used to be very unreliable, but have been working on that one for the past few years. Yes, I do have an affection for alcohol and don't turn down drugs as long as I don't have to tend children or drive afterward....and sex is only "fun" if there is something different on the menu.  

The shape of numbers reflect their nature, 5 is a symbol of dynamic motion.  The 5 is random energy, elastic and constantly in motion. Random and constantly in motion..that's me.

So the experiment here is is Numerology accurate? Well, in my case I say yes it was 99% accurate. The only part that was a little iffy was the tall and good looking part.

Mine was so accurate that it prompted me to do me to do other family members just to see if mine was just a fluke.
Interestingly enough, theirs all hit the nail on the head also.

It's been said that numbers are the universal language. Maybe it's not far from the truth....
