The 5-5-5 alignment approaches
Updated: Apr 28, 2021
Wednesday May 5, 2021 is a 5-5-5 day, with a touch of enchantment. It's a golden — or perhaps silvery —opportunity to set a clearer course for the rest of 2021.
While all the 5-days, that is, the 5th, 14th and 23rd of any month in 2021 are opportunities to enhance the power of the 5 energy of 2021, May 5 carries the triple 5 (5/5/5) channel. As a general guide, if you want to help change something in your life or your community or the world (why think small!) in 2021, the 5-days are an excellent choice. And while May 14 and 23 are also 5-5-5 days — if we reduce 14 (1+4) and 23 (2+3) to 5 — May 5 is 'pure', so to speak, and the only one in 2021. Its karmic energy is 15, The Magician and a catalyst for transformation.
The number 15 is a number of deep esoteric significance, the alchemic vibration through which all magic is manifested. It’s extremely fortunate and carries with it the essence of enchantment. The 15 is associated with fine communication, eloquence of speech, and the gifts of music, art and drama. It bestows a strong magnetism; a curiously compelling charisma. The 15 appeals to altruism.
With this in mind, my suggestion is to find some quiet space and time and focus on what you want to change in your life, your community or our world. Close your eyes and while sitting comfortably with both feet on the floor or ground (barefoot if you are in nature), visualise the planet fully enveloped in silver light, which is in keeping with the predominate colour of 2021. (Some people prefer to visualise golden white light, which is the colour to be found on a clear sunrise morning just as the sun is rising on a cloudless horizon. Whatever works for you.)
It doesn't matter how long you do it, but 5 minutes is a good guide, because it adds another 5 to the mix. You can do this any time of day or night. But if you want to pick a time of day to balance the power of the 5, go for 8am or 8pm wherever you are in the world. I know some meditators will be doing a meditation for Beltane on that day at the slightly different time of 8.08pm UK time, so you could do a visualisation or meditation at that time. The 8am or 8pm, rather than the 8.08, is based solely on Chaldean numerology. Does that mean those in the UK are out of kilter? Not at all. Their action is for a slightly different purpose. My suggestion is to help activate any dormant or stagnant energy by shining a light to move it into view, so we can see it clearly and then figure out what to do about it.
By May 5, we will be just two months shy of the turning point (July 2) in this turning point year of 2021, after which the momentum of change starts to ramp up. If we have been unsure what this year represents for each of us personally, for our social circles and for the world, then it might just become a little clearer for you after the 5th.
TL,DR* May 5, 2021: Meditate, visualising enveloping the Earth in silver or golden white light for five minutes at any time of the day or night, though 8am and 8pm are especially good.
