The Number Five:
This correlates to the Planet Jupiter. The signs of Sagittarius and Pisces, the ninth and twelfth house, the rider on the horse, the double fish, the color orange and The letters E, N& W. -- INTER-PERSONAL
The Number 5 - The Movement, Hope and Mercy number:
Look at the number 5. It spreads out in both directions. It represents movement. It is the number of prosperity and growth. It should be remembered that the number five follows the number four. In other words there must be hard work before there can be prosperity and growth. There is no free lunch in life that will last forever. Only those enterprises built on a solid four foundation can prosper over time. That is the problem with today’s society. People are trying to take too many shortcuts. If they continue to do this the law of the harvest will create something they do not want. Saturn or the number 4 is the taskmaster. If we try to cheat him he knows. We will reap what we sow. Keeping the commandments of God is the only way to ensure a continuous prosperity that endures over time. Five is the movement number. It has a strong affinity to travel. The number 5 builds us up when we are down. Five is the number of hope. In the story of David and Goliath, David chooses five stones. This is to convey the meaning that he had hope in defeating the giant. He had been anointed by Samuel to be the next king of Israel. David did not fear the giant Goliath. He knew he would be king one day.
As a five you love movement. You love to travel about and to explore. Travel is like breathing to you.You need to be where the action is. You do not fear change because you can adapt to it. You hate the routine and do not like to be held back. You are the type of person who wants to try every thing at least once in life. You think big and you love to use your imagination. Five is a sensual number, you need to learn to control yourself in all areas of life. Even your thoughts need to be controlled. The number 5 controls the five senses. You will prosper if you can find a person who is down to earth. You need to learn the purpose of setting proper limits. This even applies to your skills. You need to focus on your best talents and then develop them. You are gifted in seeing the big picture. You probably like to take educated chances and you set your sights high. You need to discipline your thought process so that your thoughts are not scattered or unorganized. Then you can use your knowledge of people and places to your advantage. Remember that your success depends on your understanding and the proper use of the number four.
The positive five - Prosperity, growth, vision, orator, adventure, movement, travel, optimism and hope and mercy.
The negative five - Over optimistic, Over indulgence, No rules, Need to grow up, No self control
The Planet Jupiter: A Fire Planet.
Imagine the feel of the wind in your hair. What do you feel? Exhilaration, movement, excitement? These are all words that describe this planet. We feel the wind in our hair when we are moving fast. Jupiter is about speed travel and distant lands. The old definitions of expansion and growth work as well. In a natal chart the cusp with the sign of Sagittarius is the place where a person is most likely to experience expansion and growth in their life. The sign that the Planet Jupiter is in shows how that expansion will take place. It is a strong indication of something we will grow in. I believe that Jupiter is dignified in Sagittarius and Pisces. Traditional Astrology has Jupiter dignified in Sagittarius only. It has the opposite sign Gemini in its detriment. I believe that Jupiter is detriment in both Gemini and Virgo. The number 5 has more to do with the abstract or theory of things. The number 7 is more specific and deals with analysis and detail and fact. The number five is the natural ruler of the upper houses of the birth chart and is more social or “others” oriented. It specifically is the natural ruler of the ninth and twelfth houses. The number 7 is more self oriented and is the natural ruler of the lower houses specifically the third and the sixth. In analyzing the seasons, July or Cancer the earth is warm and therefore Jupiter makes a natural exaltation in this sign. Remember Jupiter stands for expansion and growth. It is in the growing season in the northern hemisphere.
The Greeks called this planet Zeus, the Romans called it Jupiter. Most of the nine planets are named after the Roman names. Only Uranus is named after the Greek. Zeus was the King of the gods. He was often found cheating on Hera his wife. This was the bad side of his character. At other times he was the compassionate and kind god and was very just. He lived on top of Mount Olympus. This was symbolic of the fact that he was high and lifted up. Today we call that proud. It is good to believe in yourself and to have self respect but the bible teaches us that pride goeth before the fall. Prov: 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. As prosperous as we may become we need to remember that God is smarter and more prosperous than us. All that we own in this life belongs to God anyway. We only rent space and possessions while on earth. We need to learn from the master, Christ. He was the creator of this world yet he was always humble. He always did the will of his Father. If we do this Christ has promised us this world as our inheritance. Mat 5:5 "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Pss: 37:11 But the meek shall possess the land, and delight themselves in abundant prosperity.
Remember the Tellestial Kingdom in Heaven? This was compared to the stars. A star has five points. These are the people who do not believe in keeping the Ten Commandments. They are like stars. They think they are prosperous not following God but they will find themselves deceived. The planet Jupiter even looks like a star. For many years I thought it was one until I looked through a high-powered telescope and saw Jupiter for the first time. The word planet means wanderer so unlike stars they move and change their position in the night sky. Remember that to really prosper a person needs to live by some sort of rule foundation. If we do not the heavens teach us through the numbers that our reward will be the tellestial kingdom. It should be our goal to reach the Celestial.
In Astrology the planet Jupiter moves to a new house once each year. This is called the transits of Jupiter.
When Jupiter enters a house it expands those areas of life. When it enters into the 6th, 10th or 12th house there is the possibility that the recipient feels overwhelmed. The 6th house is every day work. The 10th is career. The 12th is the hidden and the subconscious. This passage of Jupiter if used wisely prepares the recipient for the planet Saturn when it transits those houses years later. Saturn moves through a house every two and a half years. If the recipient of the transit has prepared in these areas then he or she will be rewarded when Saturn transits those houses. If on the other hand the person has not prepared then Saturn acts in a more disciplined way and the results hurt. Remember Saturn is the Planet of Justice or the Law of the Harvest. If a person ignores Saturn’s warning then the planet Uranus has a way of suddenly changing everything. This usually happens as a new beginning. For a new beginning to occur an ending must happen first. Whatever form it takes it will be sudden and without warning.
The Sign’s of Sagittarius and Pisces.
Sagittarius is the fire inspiration side to the number 5. Pisces is the feeling, emotional and intuitive side of the number five. What do both of these signs have in common? I learned that they both have travel and the dislike of boundaries in common. I also believe that the detriment of these mutable signs is slight. Jupiter is detriment in Gemini and Virgo. However they are not as noticeable as other detriments of other signs. When you think about it travel (5) and education (7) go hand in hand. Long ago when students went off to study at the University they often traveled great distances. In addition both these signs are mutable. That means they are adaptable. In traditional Astrology the planet Mercury is dignified in Gemini. In matching the planets to the corresponding numbers and signs I learned that the mutable signs were the ones that most often doubled up on the signs and numbers. Gemini is a double sign. Sagittarius is too. It has a horse and a rider. It is not part horse and part man as myth suggests. The two numbers that doubled up were 5 and 7. The 7 shares both Gemini and Virgo. Numerology taught that the number 5 was for moving and the use of the five senses. The 7 was a study number and the use of the mind. But where do you draw the line? Is not the mind stimulated by the senses? Is not the mind influenced by the senses of sight, sound, feeling, taste and smell?
The signs of Sagittarius and Pisces are both ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter has often been labeled a positive planet. In our day it is taught that you can never have too much of a good thing. That is a falsehood. There are times when a person can have too much of a good thing. I have learned that if a person has too much of any given item it can turn pleasure into pain. Take tickling as an example. Some tickling is ok but if it is kept up it actually turns painful. In terms of signs Sagittarius is the sign of foreign travel etc. The 9th house is the house of higher learning. However learning something doesn’t mean you always live by it. That is the difference between Aquarius, knowing and living and just knowing something to be true. We need to live what we know. If a person has wisdom they live by the truth that they know. There is a pattern involved first a person needs to have some Faith . Then they need to know a concept is true and then they need to live by that truth. Venus is exalted in Pisces and Jupiter is the co ruler of Pisces. However Venus and the sign of Libra has more to do with the concept of faith.. (Back to the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces and the concept of prosperity.) It is very important to keep our prosperity in balance. Any thing overdone and not kept in balance can become a vice. For example building muscles is good, but if a person tries to lift heavy weights all at once, they either can’t lift them or if they do, they are very sore the next day. However lifting overtime in a disciplined and balanced manor, builds muscle and helps a person. In life we need to learn how to balance our prosperity. This has direct reference to money. If we do not, it can lead to our own undoing. The bad side of Pisces is how we hurt ourselves or imprison ourselves. Jupiter is the ruler of both Sagittarius and Pisces. How many times have you heard the story where a rock star (music Pisces) becomes successful but then starts taking drugs (Pisces) and destroys himself or herself? There are many, but perhaps Elvis was the best example. That is why God doesn’t make us instantly prosperous as we would want him too. He knows that unless we learn how to balance our prosperity or money it can destroy us. If on the other hand we learn this lesson in life we can go on to becoming real leaders. Aries is the sign of leadership after having gone around the zodiac one full turn. We can then use our money and prosperity and accomplish a lot of good.
The ninth and twelfth house
The ninth house relates to higher learning, college and far away travel. It is a house of hope and the meaning of life. After passing through the eighth a person needs answers to these types of questions. Unlike the third and sixth houses ruled by Mercury the ninth and twelfth houses are more general and abstract in nature. The information has to deal with global issues and society rather than those of a personal nature. It is also the type of information that is needed to move a person’s career forward. It is knowledge to prosper with others. A person uses this knowledge to further their 10th house ambitions and to be rewarded a place of high esteem by society .
The twelfth house is a house of crisis It follows the eleventh which is the house of personal friends and group power. The twelfth shows what happens to society when things don’t go as planned. It is often referred to as the house of undoing or how we sabotage our own best efforts. Being aware of this and avoiding these temptations or tendencies at all costs is very important to our lasting success. It shows how a person will help society and contribute to a better world. This is sometimes referred to as a Karmic house or a house of things not finished.
The Rider on a Horse and the Double Fish.
Let’s analyze the sign of Sagittarius. Here Christ is on the earth, as this is a house above the horizon. The sign shows a rider Christ on a horse shooting an arrow into the heart of a dragon. Who is this dragon? Traditional Christianity teaches that this is Satan. Do they teach the concept of a pre-mortal life? No they do not. Lets see if such a doctrine could be supported through the signs of Astrology.( The man on a horse.) In the Far East a horse means war. The man is making war with the dragon. He shoots an arrow into the heart of the dragon. Christ in his mortal life always did the will of his father. He lived a perfect life. He was half man half God. Due to the fact that God (Zeus) was his literal father and Mary his mortal mother he had the capacity to live forever and the capacity to die. Christ (Hercules) obeyed his Father. This is where the Greeks loose the meaning of the true archetype. In their version, Hercules hates his father in many things. Christ never hated his father. I think these myths are really corrupted stories of the original true stories taught by Noah to his sons. The story showed how Christ would be born of a mortal mother with God as his Father. He would be a hero and do great things. The Greeks like the Jews, made their hero into an earthly war hero. Christ was battling a greater war. He was battling the unseen forces of evil. The constellation shows the arrow aimed at the heart of the serpent. Christ knew his mission was to conquer death and hell. He was never distracted from his mission. It shows Christ the victor.
The sign of Scorpio can depict death and hell. In Astrology, signs that are opposite each other are connected to each other. They are always opposite sides of the same coin. How is Sagittarius connected to Gemini? The archetypes for Gemini are brothers and sister’s neighbors and early childhood. In our early pre-earth life. Christ had a brother. His name was Lucifer, which means the enlightened one. The name Lucifer adds up to an 11. In Numerology eleven means light. In Astrology it means death or darkness. I believe it contains both as Scorpio (11) represents cycles. Lucifer did not like Gods plan, he had his own. He wanted to save everyone. However in order to do so he would force us all to obey. God knowing that freedom (Uranus) was necessary for our development and growth did not like this idea of force. (Pluto) He said he would choose Jehovah as our Savior, as Jehovah wanted to follow Elohim’s plan. Elohim wanted to allow us to continue to use our agency. (Mars) We could choose, but once those choices were made we could not change the effects of those choices. The law of the harvest could not be broken.
God knew that without our pre-earth life memory we would sin. We would make wrong choices. Those wrong choices would keep all of us from returning to the Celestial Kingdom. Christ said he would pay the price He took the position as our advocate. He would be our ambassador and peacemaker. Because of his love for us, he would suffer (Neptune) for our sins. Then we would owe him. We would need to keep his commandments. If we did this we could return to heaven. Satan wanted power so he rebelled against Christ and Elohim. He, a spirit of high importance in the pre-earth existence decided to rebel (Uranus) against his Father. He thought that if he saved all the spirits they should belong to him. He wanted to make his brothers and his sisters serve him. (Slavery, Virgo) Christ wanted us all to keep our freedom. There was a big division. The Spirits that followed Christ divided against the spirits that followed Satan. There was a war in Heaven. Christ and his followers won. They threw Lucifer out of Heaven. The fallen Lucifer became Satan and his followers are the devils. All of us who have mortal bodies followed Jehovah in our pre-earth life. If we didn’t we would not have been born. The sign of Leo and its constellation represents this battle. Jehovah was chosen as King of Kings. If each of us would obey Christ and follow his example we would be able to return back home as noble sons and daughters of God. (Leo). The constellation shows Jehovah standing on top of a serpent who is fleeing the scene after loosing the fight. The Greeks believed this to be Hercules (Jehovah) overcoming the Hydra -Serpent (Satan). Both the prophet Isaiah and Christ saw a vision of these events. "How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, `I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far north. Isaiah 14: 12 -13. In Christ’s time the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!" And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Luke 10: 17-18.
The sign of Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions. The fish are drinking out of the stream of water that the water bearer has poured out. The two fish, shows the need to make a choice upon hearing the gospel. It can also show how finding the truth can be confusing and hard. The vapors of darkness and temptations of Satan are like mists of darkness. (Smoke, Pisces). In order to get through this a person needs to hold on strongly to a rod of some sort. A power of strength. This is symbolized as the word of God. (Mercury) which has a lot to do with writing etc. The sign of Pisces has an affinity to sacrifice. A person will gain their greatest growth if they sacrifice and commit to a given cause. The bad side of the sign of Pisces is when a person is two-faced or a hypocrite. Christ was not tolerant of the hypocrites of his day. Christians in Christ’s time were often martyred for the truth. When Christ was born the great year was in the sign of Pisces. In fact in the year 7 BC there was a major conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn in the sign of Pisces. This occurred in the 12th house, which had reference to the Jews. In the chart of the Magi the Jewish nation was depicted as Pisces. This is how the Magi knew a child had been born to the Jews. They also saw a new star. They called it his star. “We have seen his star in the east and have come to worship him”. I believe this was a new star. It wasn’t just the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn that caught their attention. It was the combination of a new star at the same time of the conjunction. Jupiter and Saturn would not have moved very much in two years. The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn happens every 20 years or so. It always depicts the start of a long lasting significant event. Combined with a new star in the Heavens this must have been an impressive sight. The magi went to Herod thinking it was his son. At that time Herod was the King of the Jews per Roman appointment. When Herod didn’t know what they were talking about they knew it must be a different child or King. King Herod then inquired about the time of this star. After the wise men said two years, Herod sent a proclamation to kill all male children two years old or under. Joseph being warned in a dream left for Egypt until word came from an angle that King Herod had died. It is recorded that King Herod died in 3 BC. Therefore Christ was born around 7 BC or 5BC, or 3BC around the time of the conjunction in the heavens. Most historians believe 5 or 7BC as the date. However no one knows exactly. We do know that Christ was not born 0 AD as many people think. They think this because of our calendar. They often think the calendar was split exactly on the year Christ was born. That is a generalized date but it is not exact. I believe Christ was born between 5 BC and 1 BC. It was in the month of April and on the 6th day of April. The number 6 corresponding to the sign of Libra and the Planet Venus. Venus is exalted in Pisces. Christ was the King of the Jews (Pisces) the prince of peace (6 or diplomacy).
The Color of Orange
The color orange is made up of the colors yellow and red. Yellow is the color of the logical mind and corresponds to the planet of Mercury. Red corresponds to action and the planet of Mars. It is fitting then that the color to represent the sign of higher learning and travel should include the yellow color of intellect and the red color of courage. Both are needed for the sign of Sagittarius, which the Planet Jupiter rules. The co- ruler of Pisces is also Jupiter. But its modern ruler is Neptune and the color of pink. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth and prosperity and success.
The letters E, N & W
The letters E, N or W will have a lot of number five characteristics.
These characteristics are similar to the actual horse and rider symbol of Sagittarius and the double fish sign of Pisces, as well as the number 5. If you skipped ahead please read the description of A, J & S in the number 1 to understand how to use the letters in the alphabet.
