When a person is born on the fifth of January, they are made of rational, firm bricks of reason, as if their brain was the only relevant thing in the world.

January 5th Horoscope

(Pluto) – MERCURY – (Pluto) – SUN

When we speak about a person born on the 5th of January, we see someone with accented self-awareness and need for intense thinking and communication. Ways to express oneself will be searched for every day, and they will usually be found as ways that weren’t incorporated in their family ever before. There is something different, caring, and warm about them, as if their entire concept of rationality and awareness wears off in time, once they face their demons, their shadows, and learn to find beauty in the world.

Love and Emotions

Being born on the 5th of January speaks about love itself, in its practical, grounded form. People born on this day will rely on common sense and a rational approach for the most part, but they will also be in constant search for someone to share their life with, until this person is found. A traditional approach to love doesn’t always work here in the way they think it is supposed to, and they will be faced with parallel relationships and unusual relationship forms with people they feel are right for them. Some of them will choose partners who aren’t self-sufficient and ask for a lot more attention than seems logical, not sure what they find attractive in this imagery.

Whatever the situation, this is a date filled with love and emotion. Gratitude and a sense of value will give the vibe needed for happiness to resurface, and open them up for experiences that bring them satisfaction and joy. Their love life needs to share time and good will with all other areas of life and all challenges of work, finances and health. The best way to live life filled with this love every day is to choose a profession that truly gives them a chance to express creatively, though beauty, fun, and relationships that make them smile.


Capricorns born on the 5th of January are resourceful and easily overcome obstacles in life that their Sun sign points to. They will rely on intelligence and common sense, tuned in to the need of each specific task at hand. These individuals are smart and eloquent, and even when they are quiet their mind is constantly busy. With the right words for every situation, their career will blossom and their health be maintained by careful planning and focus on body wellness and a healthy routine. Still, the purpose of their existence isn’t so much in matters of the flesh or status, but in emotional balance that needs to be found. Only when they find gratitude and flexibility, seeing others as a part of their own image, will they find the colorful existence they are looking for.

What They Excel In

These individuals will do well in diplomacy and politics, law, and different sorts of art. They need to find a way to express through emotion, and show their feelings to the world without fear of the consequences. This is an ultimate test of faith in its typical form of emotion vs. reason, that gives them a solid basis for incredibly inspiring conversations and love life to fulfill their rational needs as much as all others. Oratory skills, intelligence, and high awareness will help them work within a team, even when their professional task means finding a shared language with difficult, stubborn, or strange people.

January 5th Birthday Gift

Those born on this date love gifts they can work on, and all things that show how cherished they are. They will take care of a plant someone brought into their home, enjoy gluing together and framing a puzzle with an image of strong symbolism they got from a loved one, or use that love kit their best friend brought when they went through a breakup. It is in their nature to seek love, and while they might appear rational, their deep need is highly emotional too.

Positive Traits for January 5th Born

A creative individual with tact needed to mend the differences of any two sides of the problem, connects distances, builds bridges, and does a lot for others in search for their own happiness. This is someone who knows others, does well in teamwork, and understands that right and wrong are two sides of the same coin.

Negative Traits for January 5th Born

Too much information makes them distant, or feeling unworthy and weak. If they don’t understand the mission they’re on, emotional world could remain a distant dream they lose faith in as time goes by.

Healing Crystal

When in search for a stone to fit every need for a January 5th born, we should consider brazilianite as the best option. It is a crystal that enhances creativity, helps one release feelings of anger or bitterness and become aware of their personal power, as well as intentions of other people.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Capricorns born on January 5th of any year that isn’t a leap year:

“In a Hospital, the Children's Ward is Filled with Toys.”

The Sabian symbol for Capricorns born on January 5th of a leap year:

“An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved in Granite Remains a Witness to a Long-Forgotten Culture”

Leap year January 5th Capricorns will feel the influence of the day preceding their birthday and have a bit of a harder time reaching for emotional clarity they are trying to find. What these symbols have in common is the fact that doing good for others and providing those who are endangered and weak with joy, leaves its mark in the world for a long time. The need to give will guide these individuals towards humanitarian work, suicide or violence hotlines, and dark places where people need a kind word and a helping hand.
