Keep your cool

If you keep your cool when things aren’t going well you allow others to see that you are at ease with yourself and your limitations. This inspires others to believe in you and offer you opportunities.

People born on October 5 tend to put others or the cause they are promoting first and themselves second. They can’t do enough to help, and so powerful is their conviction that others often find themselves persuaded to do good deeds as well. In addition, they also have a highly developed sense of fair play and are passionate in the defense of the rights of all, especially those who are less fortunate. As a result they often come across as unusually dignified as well as altruistic individuals.

In every situation in which they find themselves these people bring their concern for others and their strong sense of ethical responsibility. Their willingness to not just talk but take action earns them the respect and loyalty of those around them. Occasionally, however, they can lose their sense of perspective and get so wrapped up in their righteous propensity that they can become impatient and aggressive, failing to consider the consequences of their methods or the alternative viewpoints of others.

After the age of nineteen there is a turning point for people born on this day which emphasizes a growing need for emotional change and regeneration. This influence will continue for the next thirty years and during this time there will be opportunities for them to express their social instincts and make their mark. But if they are serious about being effective instruments of progress it is vital for them to learn to keep their cool, pay attention to the details and not get carried away with their own power. After the age of forty-nine there is another turning point which puts the spotlight on expanding their mind through study and travel.

Whatever age they are, these people will always be shining examples to others of joyful dedication to the ideals of justice and generosity of spirit. And once they learn to constructively direct rather than give free rein to their passion for altruism, they have the potential to become leading figures in humanitarian, spiritual or social reform.

On the dark side

Neglectful, extreme, impatient

At your best

Altruistic, gracious, warm hearted

Love Warm hearted

People born on October 5 are warm-hearted, sensual and supportive partners, but their devotion to good deeds can make their partner feel neglected at times. They don’t tend to have problems attracting friends and admirers. When they fall in love they fall in love deeply but may have to be careful of being involved in destructive power games.

Health Emotional balance

People born on this day have sharp minds and are capable and focused in their professional life. When it comes to matters concerning their own health and well-being, however, they can be surprisingly neglectful. They need to make sure that their emotional and physical health is not sacrificed for the sake of others because until they can look after themselves properly they will not be able to help others effectively. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they eat regular meals and snacks to keep their energy levels consistent; increasing their intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables will improve their digestive health. Hay fever or asthma could be a problem, especially during summer time, and they should avoid strenuous exercise during this season. Moderate to mild exercise is, however, highly recommended, particularly walking, swimming and cycling. Carrying a malachite crystal around with them will bring a sense of emotional calm and ease, and wearing the color green will encourage them to keep a sense of balance and perspective.

Career Born humanitarians

These people make successful social campaigners and charity workers and they may also excel in careers where they can give much of themselves to a vocation, such as acting, dance, art, music, or entertainment. They may also work for humanitarian causes or groups, or devote themselves to a career in politics or social reform.

Destiny To devote themselves to a cause they believe in

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to keep a sense of balance between their personal and their altruistic needs. Once they have set themselves clear boundaries and goals, their destiny is to redress perceived injustices and devote themselves to a cause they believe in.
