Part 1       Part 2       Part 3

In this Part 4 of Life Changes and the #5 we'll be discussing Letters and Names and the role they play in the fabric of our destiny.

The #5 Letters: E-N-W

The number 5 is represented by the letters E-N-W. Whenever these letters appear in a name there will be change. The letter "E" is the 5th letter of the alphabet; "N" is the 14th letter (1 + 4 = 5), and the "W" is the 23rd letter of the alphabet (2 + 3 = 5).

The period in which each of these letters will be active is 5 years. To determine the outcome of the change, simply add your Lifepath number to the 5.

MAJOR NOTE: When assessing the outcome PE for Letters and Names the Lifepath Number becomes the filter - the number to which the 5 is added, not the Expression (name number), as we have been doing to this point.

For example, in the name John the N is the fourth letter in sequence. Assuming John's simple Lifepath (LP) number is a 3, the outcome number will be an 8 (5 of the N + 3 LP = 8). Therefore, for 5 years John will experience freedom, changes, detachments, movement, shifts, and potential loss of some kind and degree (5) playing itself out in the realm of the 3's attributes - communication, health/welfare, children, art, image(s), joy, sex, pleasure, friends.

These three numbers - the 5 of the N, the 3 of the LP and 8 of the PE - are placed into an IR Set (Influence/Reality) which is ciphered in its binary (two digit) form as 5/8 or its three digit form 5/(3)/8. The textual version is: Influence/(Filter)/Outcome or PE.

But how do we determine when John's 5 will be active? Easy. Simply associate each letter's single numerical value using the chart below, working left to right adding each letter's single numerical value until you get to the N of John.

To illustrate: the "J" of John has a timeline of 1 year; the "O" of John has a timeline of 6 years; the "H" of John has a timeline of 8 years. Add these together: 1 + 6 + 8 = 15. Therefore, the "N" of John will begin at age 16 and last through age 20, a period of 5 years. This tells us that from age 16 through age 20 John's IR Set will be a 5/(3)/8, which translates to freedom, changes, movement, detachment, etc. (5) playing itself out in the realm of the 3 of communication, health/welfare, children, etc.

  • A-J-S = 1 years
  • B-K-T = 2 years
  • C-L-U = 3 years
  • D-M-V = 4 years
  • E-N-W = 5 years
  • F-O-X = 6 years
  • G-P-Y = 7 years
  • H-Q-Z = 8 years
  • I & R = 9 years

The #5 Name Timeline

The same process works with names whose single letter value is a 5. For example, take the name Lisa. Using the chart above we see that the "L" = 3; the "I" = 9; the "S" = 1, and the "A" = 1. Added together these equal a 14, which is a 5 in reduction (3 + 9 + 1 + 1 = 14: 1 + 4 = 5). The length of time the name Lisa (and its 5 single number crown) will be active is 14 years. This is referred to as her Name Timeline. If "Lisa" is the first name of her full natal name, from birth through age 14 Lisa will experience some form of change.

Next, we simply add Lisa's Lifepath number to the 5 of Lisa to see how the forces of change, loss, detachment, freedom, etc. will play themselves out. So let's give Lisa a 2 Lifepath. When her 5 of Lisa is added to her 2 Lifepath, the result is 7. Therefore, during her Name Timeline of Lisa from birth through age 14 the energies of change (5) will manifest energies of introspection, analysis, research, seclusion, perfection, testing, study and possible turmoil, trouble, tears, tragedy (7). Because Lisa is in the early stages of her life, this 5/(2)/7 IR Set will involve the parents or other external factors.

Other numbers in her chart do play a role, of course, but this 5/(2)/7 pattern universally manifests as some form and degree of change and loss generating a level of stress, concern, worry, trouble and angst. How Lisa will manage these energies depends on her attitude and upbringing and how balanced, centered and aware she is of life. Since she is young, the quality of her parent's parenting skills will be a major force in how she responds to the energies besetting her. Frankly, Lisa's issues will most likely be a manifestation of her parent's issues, and the parents would be wise to look to themselves and their relationship for the causes of Lisa's worries and concerns.

If Lisa's Lifepath were any other number than the 2, the experiences of her early life would be different. Changes, movement, loss, etc. will still be the lessons, influences, subjects and themes of the first 14 years of her life, but the outcome with another number will be different. For example, a 1 Lifepath would create a 6 outcome (5 + 1 = 6); a 4 Lifepath would generate a 5/(4)/9 IR Set, and so forth.

Now it's your turn. Do you have any Es, Ns or Ws in your birth name? If so, when were they active and how did they manifest? Also, do any of the names of your full birth name equal a 5? If so, when will they be active, for how many years, and what will the outcome be?

Following are the General IR Sets for the Letter and Name Timelines for your reference.

The Nine Simple 5-Based IR Sets of Change for the Letters E-N-W and #5 Names

5/(1 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 Lifepath)/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 four part series regarding the number 5 and its attributes of change has been offered to assist people in understanding and managing their lives and destinies. There is much more to be discussed in reference to change but for now these four articles will give the reader a solid formula for understanding many of the changes in his/her life. As stated above, The King's Book of Numerology series offers extensive knowledge regarding the art and science of numerology.
