LIFE changes, no doubt, but some life changes are more drastic than others, more critical than others. Knowing when these changes will occur is as valuable as knowing when a tornado, hurricane or storm is coming. This series of articles will help you forecast the coming changes of your life, giving you a better opportunity to navigate and manage the ups and downs of your destiny.

In lieu of such changes one solution, but not a good one, is to hide under the covers, as if hiding from change will make things better. Poor choice. Life will always be full of change and challenge. The King's Numerology promotes the strategy of challenging the change through foresight, courage, skill, knowledge and fortitude.

On a personal note, and drawing from my professional martial arts teaching background spanning five decades, if you can't - or won't - see a punch coming how can you protect yourself from it? Simple answer - you can't. If you can't see, you can't fight. Vision is critical to success. By the same token, if we cannot see, or refuse to see, the oncoming changes of our life, how can we deal with them well, let alone successfully.

One of the gifts of numerology - the divine science of numeric coding - is that it allows us to see the blueprint of our destiny. It's very much like a weather satellite forewarning us of coming atmospheric conditions. We can choose to ignore or disavow satellite technology or we can embrace it and use it for our well-being. In a self-defense situation, we can open our eyes and fight, or we can close our eyes and suffer the consequences of our blindness. It's a simple choice but a critical one, to be sure.

A note about change. Many people are, frankly, afraid of change, but there is no need to be afraid. Weather changes, the waves of the ocean and their currents are constantly in a state of flux, and life changes, too, for all of us. Besides, change can be quite good, especially if we are releasing outworn attitudes, behaviors, conditions, even relationships which no longer serve our highest and best good.

The Number 5 and Destiny

In numerology the number 5 is the energy of change, motion, movement, detachment, freedom, letting go. Because life moves in circles and cycles of predictable energy patterns, we can forecast when changes will occur. Knowing this information allows us to manage our life better by preparing for the storms and tempests of life. By knowing, we never get blind-sided or sucker-punched by life. We act upon it, not become victimized by it. If we choose to play the victim by letting life's storms roll over us or thrash us to death we can do so, but where is the nobility, the dignity, the success in such behavior? There is none.

Destiny is an amalgam of multiple energy fields, not one single stream of energy. Furthermore, there are multiple streams of 5 energy moving in all of our lives. It is the 5 energy that is responsible for the changes we experience in life. One of the primary energy streams of destiny is our age, labeled as the Age Timeline or ATL. This is discussed in The King's Book of Numerology II - Forecasting, Part 1, aka KBN II.

The 5 Age Timelines

Take a look at the following ages below. With the exception of the 5 in the fifth year of life, all the others (up to 95) will be a 5 in reduction. This is accomplished by adding the two ciphers of each binary (two digit number) together, reducing them, and continuing the process until the single number 5 is reached. This single number is called the "crown." For example, take the number 95: 9 + 5 = 14; 1 + 4 = 5.

Chronological Ages of the Number 5

5 - 14 - 23 - 32 - 41 - 50 - 59 - 68 - 77 - 86 - 95

During each one of these 5-based ages, change will occur in everyone's life. How the change manifests in each life depends on each person's personal energies. But take note: there will be changes during these eleven Age Timeline markers. To prove it to yourself, simply review your life when you were 5, 14, 23, 32, etc. Know then, too, that if you haven't reached a specific age yet, there will be changes when you get there. Thus, you can plan accordingly. You can also do this for anyone as long as you know their full natal data (birth date and birth name). Think how valuable this would be regarding your spouse, partner, children, parents? Invaluable.

But how will the changes in each of these years affect you personally? It will depend on what your Expression number is. The Expression is your "name number." It's easy to compute. Take a moment, go here, compute your simple Expression number if you don't already know it and then come back to complete the process.

The next step is to add your Expression number to the number 5 to generate an outcome energy. Your Expression number will be one of the single numbers 1 to 9. For example: 5 + a 3 Expression = 8. Another example: 5 + 8 = 13; 1 + 3 = a 4 simple Expression.

Computing Your Age Timeline of Change
The number 5 (Influence energy) + your Expression (Filter) = the Outcome energy

Once you have determined the outcome energy (called the Performance/Experience or PE), go to the Keywords Chart to read what your outcome (PE) number represents. That number (and its keywords) will tell you what to generally expect during your 5-based age, whatever that age is - 23, 32, 41, 50, etc.

To pinpoint the year any 5-based age is/was/will be active, simply add the age in question to your year of birth.

Age + Year of Birth = Age Timeline

One note. Remember that your Age Timeline Year starts on your birthday and proceeds through its 12 month cycle. It does not start on 1 January unless you were born on 1 January.

For your convenience, below is a simple chart for each of the nine Expressions as they relate to the 5-based ages. They are placed in a pattern called an IR Set (Influence/Reality Set) depicting incoming and outgoing energy flows. The first number is a 5. It represents the incoming energy of change, as we've been discussing. The middle number in "( )" represents your Expression or name number. It is referred to as the "filter/funnel." The third number is the PE or outcome number (the simple sum of the 1st and 2nd numbers).

Influencing Energy - 5/(+ Expression #)/= Outcome PE #
A. 5 year of change/(+ a 1 Expression)/ = a 6 Outcome PE
B. 5 year of change/(+ a 2 Expression)/ = a 7 Outcome PE
 C. 5 year of change/(+ a 3 Expression)/ = an 8 Outcome PE

Voids Within the IR Sets

Voids are missing letters (and their corresponding numbers) in the birth name. The absence of their energy can have a negative impact on how IR Set's are manifested. They should always be taken into account when arriving at an assessment. Read more about voids here.

The Nine Simple 5-Based IR Sets of Change and Their General Outcomes

5/(1 Expression)/6
Changes will focus on matters of the home, heart and hearth. Love relationships may experience some type of variety or even dissolve. "Changes in love" is a simple phrase for this 5/(1)/6 IR Set. There could be new additions in the family, travel, or some type of familial loss or detachment. Do not expect things to be the same during this time. Be prepared to adjust. Clinging to what was or has been will prove painful. Learn to let go to those things, people, events, patterns which no longer serve your highest and best good.

5/(2 Expression)/7
This 5/(2)/7 pattern will bring spiritual, ethical, moral testing and potential struggles. If one exhibits purity of conduct, he/she will make valuable progress in the arena of personal character and soul development. If one's conduct is neither pure, moral nor ethical, this will be a difficult and trying time. Deceits, treacheries, betrayals, adulteries, conflict, destructive addictions and chaos are possible outcomes. Another potential manifestation of this 5/(2)/7 pattern is serving a variety of people through one's ability to analyze, examine, teach, guide and inform. It is important to remember that the 7 in this PE position can represent peace or chaos, lightness or darkness, the destructive winds of the hurricane or the center, tranquil eye of the storm. Wisdom, discipline, self-control and purity of conduct will be the deciding factor in the person's experience during this 5/(2)/7 time period. With 7 in the Outcome position, expect to have time alone, to be alone - either physically, emotionally, psychologically, socially, intellectually. This is a time to think, reflect, meditate, plan, get centered and find peace within.

5/(3 Expression)/8
This is a dynamically moving, changing energy. It is often seen in the charts of communicators, athletes, salesmen, people on the move. This can be a very fun, enjoyable, entertaining and connective energy pattern. It is highly social and friendly. Because the 8 governs commerce, business, marketing and career, there may well be changes in these areas. There is the possibility that disconnections will also occur within this 5/(3)/8 energy field because the 5 can detach a person from his/her health, joy or children (3), especially if any of the three ciphers (5-3-8) is negatively aspected, i.e., Voided or Challenged (see KBN II). This 5/(3)/8 pattern is quite good for sales people because of the energies of man (5), communication (3) and engagement (8).

5/(4 Expression)/9
No two numbers in combination represent man and mankind more than the 5 and 9. 5 is the Number of Man; 9 is the Number of Mankind. Therefore, this is a diverse and expansive energy field, encompassing all kinds of people, events, changes, cultures, communities, countries, nationalities, travel and distance. As an example, this 5/(4)/9 IR Set was at the core of Princess Diana's destiny. With the 5's attributes of loss and detachment, as well as the 9's characteristics of endings of cycles and terminations, this 5/(4)/9 pattern can manifest as endings or detachments from the house, job, or work environment. It can also manifest as changes and variety in work or travel.

5/(5 Expression)/1
Fire, fire and fire - this is the elemental structure of this 5/(5)/1 pattern. It is an energy field awash in freedom and independence. During this 5/(5)/1 timeline period there will be changes, movement, travel, detachment, variety, freedom, new directions, creativity and independence. This is not a time of running with the pack; it is a time to lead the pack, to go first, be innovative, create and show the way. Because of its saturation of freedom and independence, this 5/(5)/1 pattern will fly. There is no water, earth or air in it, just blazing fire and passion. Do not expect normalcy or complacency with this set. Nothing is normal about it, and no one dare attempt to control it, lest they get scorched. The 5/(5)/1 energy field is as close to being a law unto itself as anything or anyone could be. The key to its success lies in discipline and self-control, for a lack of either could lead to disastrous consequences.

5/(6 Expression)/2
Expect changes in relationship and heart with this 5/(6)/2 IR Set or relationships with people whose Expression, Lifepath or PE is a 5. The 6 governs the family and all matters of the heart - personal love, compassion, caring, support, devotion. The 2 governs relationships of all kinds, females, balance/imbalance, dependence, passivity, division, competition, togetherness, war and peace. The 2 and 6 are both water signs and rule the emotions. If positively manifested, they create a loving, caring energy field. However, with the 5's mercurial nature and the 2's attribute of opposition and interference, there could well be fireworks during this time period, especially since the 5 is a fire sign. Fire (5) and water (2 & 6) don't mix well, obviously, so this 5/(6)/2 pattern can create a lot of steam and heat and . . . conflict. As a general note, no two numbers are more sexual than the 5 and 6 together in relationship (2), so don't expect too much grounding during this time period.

5/(7 Expression)/3
This 5/(7)/3 IR Set is excellent for writers. The 5 offers energy and variety; the 7 filter brings all things internal into focus through acts of communication and expression (3). This can be a fun set, but one which is more introverted than extroverted. If negatively aspected by void or Challenge or both, this 5/(7)/3 pattern can yield issues with one's health and well-being. The 5 of loss and detachment, filtering through the recessive and internalized 7 with its 16 Great Purifier root, can generate some types of health problems. It can also generate negative issues with communication, such as little to no communication or outright prevarication, especially if the 3 is void (no Cs, Ls or Us in the birth name). Because the 3 governs children, a 3 void in a PE position can prove challenging as well.

5/(8 Expression)/4
Variety and change in work and service is a good phrase for this 5/(8)/4 pattern.4s and 8s are focused on work, security, stability, business, commerce, continuity, career, management and interaction. With the 5 in the Influence position, one can expect change, movement, freedom, variety, detachments and potential loss in one's job or career. Because of its mercurial nature, the 5 often brings up and downs to a person's life because it's not about roots, it's about movement. What this 5/(8)/4 pattern can also generate is a variety (5) of work (4) or a constant change in one's work. Freedom of movement in the job, house, work environment or one's personal regimens can be expected.

5/(9 Expression)/5
Expect much travel and change with this 5/(9)/5 pattern. It's similar to the 5/(5)/1 except the 9 brings more expansion and travel to the 5 energy. When the 5 merges with the 9, a 14 is generated before the final 5. The 14 is the most dominate binary manifesting loss, detachment, change. Therefore, one should not cling during this energy timeline. Learn to let go and discover new things, people, events, places, experiences. This pattern will have its way. If one clings too hard, he runs the risk of being ripped from that to which he clings, which will not be comfortable. Knowing he must let go during this time period will help keep him balanced and stable.

This information of how to calculate your Age Timeline (ATL) for the number 5, which represents change, is only one part of the ATL. In Part 2 of this series we'll discuss the "Subcap Challenge" regarding each of the ten binaries of ages manifesting a 5 crown (14, 23, 32, 41, etc.) and reveal the secrets it holds in the framework of one's destiny.
