The 5/1 Profile



The Profile 5th line has a unique spin on it that no other Profile has. It is not an easy path because it is highly subject to the projection field of the physical plane. If the fifth line is in the Personality side, such as in the 5/1 and 5/2, their journey through life is going to be deeply impacted by the interaction that they have with others.



The fifth line being is like a tall mirror.

As the fifth line being is standing in front of someone, the person begins inventing the character of the “5” personality in their mind, just as they are looking in the mirror.

If the character of the fifth line being that has been created by the “others” mind is bringing something practical, useful and enlightening to the conversation, then the “5” is seen as someone who is truly brilliant and wise.

Suddenly, the fifth line being is projected upon that it has the answer and that they are saving that person, in some way.

This can be a good thing because it can bring good opportunities.


The fifth line being has one single moment to make an impression, good or bad. A fifth line has no idea what the other is going to project so it is purely organic in how it evolves and the experience is completely reliant on the environment and people where the fifth line is exposing itself.

A 5th line eventually learns how to be embraced by people and how to be hated, simultaneously, transmuting the projections and experiences. 

The independent nature of the 5 does not settle well under another authority. The 5 naturally rebels tradition and antiquated thinking, particularly religious thinking. Through a variety of experiences in life as a 5, through the scapegoating, the burning on the cross, the projections, the rejection from family and the saviour complexes, “five one’s” are shaped and cultivated into teachers of a new era for humanity. They gain a plethora of experience, which brings wisdom and the thick skin required to sustain the battering and the praising that comes with bringing something new into the world.

The most difficult thing for a fifth line Profile is intimacy.

Many fifth line Profile beings would love to be embraced for who they truly are. But because of how much they are misunderstood or poorly projected upon most of their life growing up, there is a “coldness” or arrogance quality that tends to isolate the fifth line, socially. They can tend to feel “nasty” because they are exhausted dealing with the projections. The more not-self they are, the more, “nasty” in nature a fifth line will feel in interaction. And the more time they spend in the wrong environment with the wrong people, the more of this “not-self” they become.

The 5th Line Profile work to do

reflectionWhen the fifth line is healthy, in tune and is practical, it offers some great gifts for work on the material plane.

The significant purpose of the fifth line is to find roles for people and assist them in dialing into their life purpose. Most fifth line people can see the skills, talents and gifts of others and then assist by placing them in the correct position to express those abilities.

Fifth line beings that are skilled at life coaching or teaching, are perfect for assisting those who are ready to drop conditioning and move into their true chemistry. They are natural leaders, for the quickening that is upon us now.

Roughly 15% of the population are 5th line Profiles.  The founder of Human Design, Ra Uru Hu, was a 5/1, a natural authority in directing the Raprocess of learning the mechanics.


Ra Uru Hu is a perfect example of the potential inherent in a fifth line Profile.
