On the surface people born on March 5 are smooth and charming individuals with the gift of the gab, but troubled waters lie below. Their easy style conceals a complex personality that is as fascinating as it is frustrating.

The emotional current that flows beneath the light-hearted exterior of people born on this day is extraordinarily powerful. One moment they’re entertaining and empathetic companions who can put everyone about them at their ease with their sharp wit and incisive mind. The next moment, however, when their emotional equilibrium is unbalanced, they can dissolve into insecurity, negativity and fits of temper. Given the instability of their emotional life, it is very important for these people to learn to manage their emotions, especially between the ages of sixteen and forty-five when they become more aggressive, assertive and determined to make their mark. After the age of forty-seven there is another turning point which sees them slow down a little, searching for stability in all areas of their lives.

Underneath the sociable and confident façade of people born on this day is a highly sensitive soul that desperately needs regular time out in quiet and solitary reflection. Inside they may have many hidden fears and insecurities to deal with; if they don’t allow themselves time to acknowledge these demons, they are the mercy of their impulses and there is no telling in what direction they will go. People born on this day may worry that becoming more balanced and stable will result in a loss of intensity or edge, but they need to understand that cultivating personal will-power and self-control will not lessen but strengthen their creativity and the impact they have on others.

With their emotional honesty, March 5 people have the ability to bring out both the best and the worst in themselves and others. If they can learn to find balance and use their power over others responsibly, the world will always be a brighter place with these impulsive individuals around.

On the dark side

Insecure, unreliable, negative

At your best

Entertaining, intelligent, witty

Love Blowing hot and cold

People born on March 5 can fall passionately in love one day, only to change their mind and blow cold the next day. Given the extremes to which they are prone, they need to receive unconditional love and support from those who are close to them, although they also need firmness. Once they know what they can and cannot get away with, they are much less likely to test the waters and will remain stable in a relationship.

Health Highs and lows

When people born on this day have a good time they may have trouble knowing when to stop. This can have a negative effect on their health, especially when that good time includes alcohol, rich food, nicotine, sugar, and multiple sexual partners. They may also find it difficult to sleep; if insomnia is a problem, making sure their bedroom is light and airy, taking an aromatherapy bath or a cup of chamomile tea may help, as will avoiding the stimulation of TV, conversation or exercise. Regular exercise is highly recommended, as are vitamin and mineral supplements. Because they are prone to mood swings it is especially important that they learn to connect with their inner peace and calm, perhaps by regular meditation, being in nature or listening to beautiful music.

Career Born movie directors

The impulsive nature of these people draws them toward the world of movies—where they can make great directors—as well as acting, music, drama, and the entertainment world. Their love of adventure and excitement may also lead them toward careers involving travel, politics, design, the fashion world. They may also be drawn toward social reform and charity work, but they are likely to excel in whatever career they choose because of their intelligence and superior communication skills.

Destiny To make lofty dreams a reality

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to work with both their head and their heart. Once they’ve learned to rein in their impulses, their destiny is to make their lofty vision and dreams for the future a reality.
