To dream of the number five can have several different interpretations.

Firstly, consider the commonly used phrase ‘five a day’. The dream might be urging you to eat better than you are currently by including five or more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Perhaps the way you currently eat is having a detrimental effect on your health and you need to do something about it sooner rather than later by following these universal guidelines.

Secondly, a ‘five finger discount’ refers to the act of stealing. Although you may not be shoplifting, perhaps you are taking things that don’t belong to you in other ways. Are you taking up too much of someone’s time? Or stealing someone’s attention for your own gains? Perhaps you are someone who always takes and never gives anything back. If this sounds like you it might be time to redress the balance.  

More positively, a high five is a sign that you deserve a well done. Perhaps you ought to treat yourself for a recent victory or celebrate your successes in some way. If you feel you aren’t getting the praise you deserve, it may be time to talk to the person whose responsibility it is to give it to you. 

‘Take five’ is generally what people say when they are going for a break. The dream could be an indication that you require some time away or time out of work, a situation or a relationship in your waking hours. 

Five o’clock marks the end of the working day for many people so to see it as a time in your dream suggests that you have finished a commitment or obligation and you are now ready for some downtime. 

Alternatively, it might be a sign that you need to break the mould and do something that goes against the grain.
