A date such as the 5th of December has a task to connect words with higher beliefs, one's convictions with their way of expression, and stands tall to get us rid of shame in our everyday contacts with others. This is a time of great tribes, when many things will flow and be shared within a group, but also a time of challenges when secrets could be blurted out with no ill intentions behind the deed.

December 5th Horoscope

(Pluto) – MERCURY – SUN – MOON

People born on December 5th are witty, intelligent, and ready to interact with social groups and others in ways that give their personality room to shine. Still, they have communication between their parents served on a platter in this lifetime to resolve, either being involved in their conflict without clear boundaries recognized, or being the favorite kid who got attention so that tough talk between adults can be avoided. They have an important message to share, but often do this in unusual and inconvenient ways, feeling ashamed of their own words, or being too pushy to contain opinions that no one asked for. Their real place in any group will be found as they slow down, start recognizing signals in their emotional world that need to be followed around others, and let go of trying to prove things that are obvious in their personal world so they can focus their energy on productive communication.

Love and Emotions

Emotional world of those born on December 5th is a bit complicated, as they try to find answers in their mind when they can only be found in their heart. They might fall in love with a neighbor or colleague, someone they see every day, and get lost and ashamed if things go sour. They fall in love easily, but might keep things superficial if communication doesn’t flow both ways and if beliefs in the greater good aren’t shared. Sometimes, we will see these individuals settle for a relationship with a practical, down-to-earth partner that doesn’t really fit their emotional core, simply because they cannot find practicality and grounding within.

In time, they discover their sexuality to be the true guiding light of their bonds, this sometimes leading to breakups, parallel romances and several marriages. Things they try to achieve in pairs should be done on their own, so they can function in a bond that is filled with mutual respect and full regard to personal boundaries and development of each individual. Only when free to function on their own, will they be ready for shared work and projects that are done in healthy ways, together. They need someone who won’t quench their need to speak and share their opinions and philosophies with the world, but instead support them to find the focus of self-expression needed to make a true impact.


With Mars being the sole purpose of lives of those born on the 5th of December, it is clear that grounding is their main objective. They need a strong relationship with their body, with the core of their energy and to make moves now and think about them later. They will easily be shifted off their trail if they succumb to feelings of guilt, inadequacy or shame. To build up the strength needed to succeed, they need their physiology and their routine in order, their body cleansed of toxic influences, and their physical strength supportive of intellectual and emotional battles they carry around every day.

What They Excel In

A person born on December 5th does extremely well in writing, teaching and all oratory assignments. They are stand-up comedians and actors, those who give their life to sports and write books on philosophy of the body and the material world, as well as martial artists who awaken their talents as they grow older. When their focus is found, they excel in all practical things, fine tuning, service of broken technology, as well as any type of work with plants and animals. Working with their hands, they could find grounding in fields of art such as painting or sculpting, but only if their body is treated well enough as they detach from earthly planes when inspiration kicks in.

December 5th Birthday Gift

A gift for someone born on the 5th of December can always be the first childish choice that comes to mind, something funny and light on the eye. They will enjoy colorful presents that remind them of their optimism and spirit, short trips to the countryside and a gathering by the fire. Choose something they can carry in their pocket, or a trinket that might not last long, but it will spark and feed their curiosity. Depending on the occasion and your relationship, you can also go with a new phone, laptop, suitcase or a city car.

Positive Traits for December 5th Born

Witty, fun to be around, finding their way through the largest of social groups, they are the ones to speak their mind and say what everyone needs to hear, and those who boost confidence in others.

Negative Traits for December 5th Born

Talking too much, unreliable and insecure, they might turn to dishonesty to get out of troubling situations. They get distracted by too many things that spark their interest and don’t keep their focus and moves in tune with greater priorities they have.

Healing Crystal

Linarite is an excellent stone for Sagittarius representatives born on December 5th, giving them balance within the throat chakra and helping them find the right words in situations that require stability of intellect. It aids sharing of deeply held emotions, especially those that are considered negative by their surroundings. A calming crystal and meditative tool, it instils the childlike freedom with intellectually supported action.

Sabian Symbol

"The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx"

The Sabian symbol for Sagittarius representatives born on December 5th in any year that isn’t a leap year:

"A Widow's Past is Brought to Light"

The historic note to these symbols shows the importance of things done in the past, as the tides turn and the world changes over time. These people could be ashamed of things they did, or put all their pride in them, but either way they seem to have trouble living in the present tense, in this moment in time, holding on to the past. Their deeds should be seen for what they are, good or bad, but left where they belong so that life today can be enjoyed and supported for the right causes and endeavors to follow. They need clarity about deeds done, even if this means taking dirty underwear out, where everyone will see it, so their energy can be focused instead of shame tainting their vision and their ability to create the life they wish to live. There is no shame in being human.
