Admit you have fears too

If you admit you have the same fears as others you will get people on your side. When you show your vulnerable side you bring people closer to you.

People born on February 5 are often admired by others for their quiet confidence, razor-sharp wit and ability to undertake almost any task with ease. They are smooth operators with the gift of the gab and an ability to deliver the goods.

Although people born on this day may seem to be extremely capable, sometimes to the point of over-confidence, underneath they are no less insecure than anyone else. They have simply learned to mask their insecurities with a smooth, articulate and daring façcade. The admiration of others means a lot more to them that they would admit, which is why they relish the role of caretaker or educator of others.

Incredibly bright, these people express themselves with ease and are at their happiest when surrounded by equally witty and intelligent people. If they are starved of intellectual stimulation there is a danger of their alienating others with a lofty and intimidating manner. Fortunately, between the ages of fifteen and forty-four their emotional sensitivity toward others becomes more emphasized; after the age of forty-four there comes a turning point which suggests they feel even greater empathy for others.

People born on this day can be exceptional thinkers as well as speakers, and nothing thrills them more than philosophy, psychology, mystery, and intrigue. With an ever-curious mind, if they are able to develop their unique ideas they have remarkable potential to excel in their chosen field. They need to be careful, however, not to become too detached in the process. It is important for them sometimes to think a little less and feel a little more, as they have the tendency to over-analyze rather than acknowledge feelings.

February 5 people work particularly well in a team or for a cause where their need for intellectual stimulation and flair for management can be fully utilized. When they learn to hold back less, trust a little more and allow others to catch up with their frenetic pace, the compelling charm of these smooth operators can take them all the way to the top.

On the dark side

Condescending, inconsistent, cocky

At your best

Articulate, versatile, daring

Love Born nurturers

People born on February 5 have a strong desire to be needed, so they may often find themselves the caretaker of their family, friends and anyone else who strays into their territory. They love to nurture but need to be careful that they don’t just offer practical rather than emotional help. They thrive best with a partner who can match their wit but who also doesn’t outsmart them.

Health See red

People born on this day tend to be generally healthy but if health problems do occur they may find these hard to talk about or admit to. Regular health check-ups are therefore advised so that a trusting relationship can be built up with their doctor. They need to steer clear of smoking, drugs and large amounts of alcohol, and cut down on saturated fat in their diet. As far as exercise is concerned, team sports are recommended but they may also enjoy cross-country running, horse riding, or other forms of exercise that give them plenty of variety and challenge. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with shades of red will encourage them to open up emotionally as well as intellectually.

Career Born guardians

These people are guardians or caretakers by nature and this could open doors in medicine, education, counseling, psychology, the clergy, consultancy, finance, management, or social work. Their curiosity may also lead them toward careers in the arts, design, film, science, writing, journalism, or academia. Fierce individuals, those born on this day may also prefer to work on their own or set up their own business.

Destiny To make the impossible seem possible

The life path of people born on this day is to place as great an importance on feelings as on thoughts. Once they are able to develop their emotional sensitivity, their destiny is to make the impossible seem possible and by so doing to influence and inspire others toward great things.
