May 5, 2021 is a triple 555 numerology date today. Many people are into Numerology which have been popularized as “Angel Numbers.” Numerology derives from Hebrew gematria. So that is the source I always go to. The angels and their symbols and numbers come from that source. I don’t subscribe to the modern “airy fairy New Age interpretations which all sound blandly positively a such as like Luck is coming to you and make wishes and your angels are there, to me.

5 is the Hierophant or The Pope or High Priest in the Tarot. He is the male counterpart of the High Priestess #2. Note that the Priestess comes before the Priest. She is in the Supernal Triangle on the Tree of Life.
“A hierophant (Ancient Greek: ἱεροφάντης) is a person who brings religious congregants into the presence of that which is deemed holy. As such, a hierophant is an interpreter of sacred mysteries and arcane principles.”
The #5 is also interpreted as Christ on in a Painting. Some people see 555 as the Number of Jesus Christ.
In many modern TAROT decks, the Hierophant is shown with his right hand raised in blessing or benediction, with two fingers pointing skyward and two pointing down, thus indicating an “As above So Below” image which forms a bridge between Heaven and Earth. ” reminiscent of that formed by the body of The Hanged Man #12. The Hierophant is thus a true “pontiff”, in that he is the builder of the bridge between deity and humanity. In his left hand he held a triple cross. The Hierophant is typically male, even in decks that take a feminist view of the Tarot, such as the Motherpeace Tarot, The Hierophant was also known as “The Teacher of Wisdom”.
“In most iconographic depictions, the Hierophant is seen seated on a throne between two pillars symbolizing Law and Liberty or obedience and disobedience, according to different interpretations. He wears a triple crown, and the keys to Heaven are at his feet. Sometimes he is shown with worshippers, as his alternate title is the Pope or, sometimes, Jupiter.”  in older Swiss tarot versions which used planets as signifiers.
“The more commonly encountered modern name “Hierophant” is due to Antoine Court de Gébelin. According to de Gebelin, “hierophant” was the title of the chief priest in the the Eleusinian mysteries (an ancient Greek ritual).”-Wikipedia
