The way forward is…

You’re drawn to people born on…
August 23 to September 22
You are very well matched, intellectually and physically, and this can be a passionate and creative union.
Celebrate being you
Only when you are comfortable with yourself can you be confident in your skills and talents, attracting the luck and recognition you deserve.
People born on November 5 like to be at the center of things; this is often where you will find them. They are the ones others tend to turn to if they want to be in the know, not just because they can be assured of an honest and informed response but because consciously or unconsciously they are representatives of the social group, family or occupation they belong to.
As information gatherers, these people keep up to date with what is current, not because they are gossips or busy bodies, but because their forte is spotting cutting-edge trends before anyone else. Sometimes their mind seems to be focused in another dimension because it is suffering from information overload, but despite their occasional absent-mindedness they are determined individuals and real powerhouses who get things accomplished. Their realism means that they refuse to let their idealism get in the way of practical considerations.
Until the age of seventeen they may have presented a somewhat withdrawn or intense persona, but after the age of eighteen there is a dramatic change which sees them becoming more confident and outgoing. This may lead them to expand their mental outlook and to develop their characteristic fascination with what’s going on around them. After the age of forty-eight they become more organized and industrious, with a greater understanding of their goals in life. The key to their success, whatever their age or stage in life, will not be their ability to adapt to what is going on around them, but their ability to control and direct it.
The lesson in life they need to learn is that until they are as fascinated in their own self-development as they are in keeping up with what other people are doing, the outstanding potential for personal achievement associated with this birthday will remain elusive. However, once they start to become more self-aware, not only will they find greater happiness, they will also be able to use their incredible insight and knowledge to represent and to benefit others.
On the dark side
Deluded, gossipy, over-accommodating
At your best
Inquisitive, up to date, honest
Love Sensitive and powerful
People born on November 5 have sensitive and powerful emotions, and a part of them fears that they will disappear in a close relationship. But when they find the right partner, giving love and sharing space with another human being is a liberating and empowering experience for them. They are drawn to intelligent, honest and independent people, like themselves.
Health Steer clear of the latest fads
People born on this day have a tendency to be reactive in their dealings with other people, and this can trigger anxiety and uncertainty. Self-knowledge and the ability to control their responses to people and situations are therefore crucial for their emotional health. To achieve these they may need plenty of time alone, perhaps even therapy or counseling, to discover who they are and what they want out of life. When it comes to their physical health, they are likely to be very up to date with the latest trends, but they should steer clear of fad diets and exercise routines. Instead they should stick with a healthy balanced diet that includes all food groups and a moderate exercise, program that includes aerobic activity for 30 to 40 minutes at least five times a week, toning exercises every other day and gentle stretching daily. Carrying a carnelian crystal around with them will help promote balance, courage, compassion, vitality, and personal power.
Career Born advertisers
Scientific, technology and business careers as well as writing and acting could be ideal careers for these people, but they may also be drawn to negotiation, arbitration, public relations, sales, or advertising. They may have a gift for selling or promoting ideas or products, but their excellent organizational skills and inquisitive mind will help them succeed in any career that they choose.
Destiny To enlighten others
The life path of people born on this day is to take charge of their lives rather than allowing circumstances or other people to set the tone. Once they are able to establish a sense of their own identity, their destiny is to reveal information and help enlighten others in the process.
