A Numerologist Explains Why May Is the Worst Month to Splurge
Summer is just around the corner and while our heads are likely filled with thoughts of beaches and sunny days (and probably not our life path numbers), numerology urges us to realize that we can’t get summer fever yet. Ruled by the number 5, the number of change and celebration, May is bound to keep us on our toes. It’s not uncommon at this time for new adventures to be thrown at us such as a new job, relationship, or move.
But this month is also ruled by another number: the number 3—or, 2019’s astrological number. When you add these two together (year + month), you get the number 8 which rules authority, ambition, and finances. The 8 encourages us to look at our own personal spending and to either start saving or making more money. That said, May will also be a great time to invest in business ventures, saving accounts, or career-altering moves.

Why Numbers 5 and 8 Will Be So Important This May
With the number 5 promoting celebration in cohesion with the number 8 promoting balance in finances… I mean, you can already tell how messy that can get. So while you battle your impulse to spend like there’s no tomorrow with your desire to invest in your future, keep this in mind: 8 is also the infinity symbol. So, if things hit a low point this month, they’re bound to spring back around.
What Numerology Says About This May For You
So, what does May have in store for you personally? Let’s find out, shall we? If you don’t know your life path number, simply add up all the digits of your birthday in a single digit number. For example, if your birthday is August 8, 1998 (8/8/1998), you’d add 8 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 9 to get the number 43. Then you’d take that sum number and compile it into a single digit: 4 + 3 = 7. Voila, your life path number is 7.
If that seems like too much brain work for right now (one of those days?), you can also just enter your birthday into our life path number calculator, and we’ll do the math for you.
Once you’ve got it, check below for your personal numeroscope.
Your Numeroscope for May, Based on Your Life Path Number
The Number 1
You’ve got a major case of spring fever this month, and you’re ready to take a big risk that has the potential to improve your life in the long run. It’s important to trust your instincts, but do some research before diving in head first. In that vein, make a back-up plan in case things don’t work out how you imagine them to.
The Number 2
In this fast-paced month of decisions, self-care will be a major must if you want to survive the conflict and drama. This is a great time to read some new books, watch interesting movies, or binge the latest TV series on Netflix. A little escapism can be good for you when you become emotionally drained. Hang in there!
The Number 3
Yikes! Don’t let your dreams of summer fun make you lose sight of your obligations this month. Keep track of your things because you may feel a little scatter-brained—losing your keys, wallet, even your sanity. To prevent yourself from going overboard, start budgeting now, so you can have a magical summer later.
The Number 4
You’re naturally great with money, but this month it’s time to have a little fun. Use some of that money you’ve saved to take a dream vacation, party with friends, or do something completely unexpected. Don’t bloth through all your savings at once, or panic over spending too much; it will all come back to you soon.
The Number 5
“Budget” has never exactly been in your vocabulary, but you’ll want to get familiar with the word soon or your carefree lifestyle may come crashing down. Time to manage your money by putting your hard earned cash in a savings account. Don’t feel too glum though; if there’s anyone who can live a champagne lifestyle on a tap water budget, it’s you.
The Number 6
You have a major decision to make regarding your career this month: whether that be investing in a new business, offered a new job, or asked to relocate to a new place. Don’t be so paralyzed by indecision that you lose an opportunity of a lifetime. Trust your gut and act on it. Remember, things will work out in the end.
The Number 7
Your blunt nature may get you into trouble this month. You’re famous for your honesty but sometimes it can be a little too harsh… hurting the people you care about and yourself in the long term. This month, turn on the charm and remember: if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
The Number 8
You’ve been working hard the last few months in order to achieve your dream and in May, you just might see the fruits of your labor. Now is the time to celebrate! Treat yourself to a little luxury: a fancy dinner, a new outfit, a vacation—just don’t get too carried away in the process!
The Number 9
Networking will be very beneficial to your career this month so use your natural charm to your advantage. People are drawn to you instinctively so you have the power to get anyone on your side, whether you are trying to raise money or get a promotion. Play your cards right and you could be offered life-changing opportunities.
The Number 11
You’re torn between making a major commitment and setting off on your own. You are indecisive by natural and this choice can make you completely stressed. Don’t rush into making any decision just yet, but don’t drag your feet—you could miss a chance of a lifetime. Trust yourself.
The Number 22
You typically like to play it safe but now it’s time to throw caution to the wind and start something totally from scratch. Whether it’s starting a new relationship, career, or even moving to a new place—go for it! As long as you put the work in, you know you’ll succeed.
