Luck maker

Don’t get over-confident

Although positive thinking will get you far, being overconfident will not; humility is an important part of the luck equation.

People born on December 5 reach for the skies both personally and professionally and, although others may think they are overreaching themselves, somehow or other they manage to get to where they want—or at the very least, close to it.

From an early age they may have displayed unusual self-confidence and willingness to go it alone. If this isn’t the case, life may have given them a series of knocks to dent their confidence; sooner or late their characteristic optimism will emerge. They truly believe that anything is possible, and throughout their lives they will be a shining example of what confidence and self-belief in the face of adversity can achieve. Sometimes they can be overconfident and unwilling to listen to the cautionary advice of others; although this may result in remarkable innovations, it can also lead to serious errors of judgment.

Around the age of seventeen they will start to think seriously about their life goals and the mark they want to leave on the world. Although they should never lose their idealism and optimism, it is important for them to make sure that the goals they set are realistic and achievable; otherwise they are setting themselves up for disappointment. Listening to the advice of others could be the key to unlocking their potential. After the age of forty-seven they may become even more progressive and original in their ideas and, if they have managed to learn from past experience and improve their judgment by taking a careful look at themselves and their situation, these are the years when they can really come into their own.

December 5 people are hard to ignore or dislike, and even though their ambitions may at times be over the top, colleagues and friends will often regard them with affection and tolerance. They have a real desire to make a positive contribution to society and, once they can direct their determination, focus and will-power to a worthy cause, they can and do find ways to benefit the greater good.

On the dark side

Over-confident, conceited, unaware

At your best

Self-assured, daring, energetic

Love Love-hate

People born on December 5 long for a settled and secure relationship, but as soon as they are in one they may start to pick arguments or stir up trouble simply to keep the intensity alive. Partners may find this particularly difficult to deal with, and for long-term happiness in a relationship people born on this day need to find someone who is emotionally confident and direct.

Health Conserve your energy

People born on this day need to conserve their energy and watch out for problems with their bones and joints. Making sure they have enough calcium and magnesium in their diet is important, as is eating a healthy balanced diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and oily fish. It would be wise for them to cut down on the amount of coffee they drink, as this can lead to insomnia; they need to be equally careful about excess sugar, salt, additives, and preservatives. Regular exercise will keep their bones and joints flexible, boosting all aspects of their health, while lots of different activities are recommended to keep them interested and motivated. Spending more time with loved ones is advised and, for those times when they feel alone, a few drops of rose, clary sage or frankincense essential oil on a handkerchief to breathe in will help produce feelings of inner security and self-acceptance; for relaxation and a good night’s sleep—which are both particularly important for them—they should try lavender.

Career Born fashion designers

These people will thrive in any career in which they can be constantly stimulated. They may find themselves drawn to art, writing, music, fashion, filmmaking, and the world of entertainment. They may also excel in careers such as education, research, social reform, politics, and charity work.

Destiny To introduce innovative concepts to the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more realistic in their assessment of people and situations. Once they are able to examine themselves honestly, their destiny is to introduce and promote innovative concepts.
