October 5th Horoscope


Double standards are possible in lives of those born on the 5th of October, and very often they are to prove their dominance among siblings, neighbors and in their social circle. Still, their task isn’t to defeat anyone, but to give enough respect to grow and be respected themselves. As they overcome challenges in communication with others, they start connecting with friends and close people on an entirely new level. Their rational personality gives them the ability to separate things into categories and see their true priorities with more ease than other Libra representatives. Talented writers, linguists and researchers, their intellectual strength can go a long way when they love what they do.

Love and Emotions

The love life of those born on October 5th needs some time to get enough quality, as their communication and the need to overthink often stand in the way. In order to get intimate, they must focus their words into meaningful wholes that are specific and in tune with how they feel. The beginning of their dating life can be tricky, with parallel standards or bonds and strange dilemmas between those they care for and those who seem to be a "good fit". Time teaches them that the only good fit is the one fit for their heart.

Belief in love is their foundation for the depth of intimacy they will create with another person. Their partners could be emotionally out of balance or strangely irrational, this pointing out that they are still dismissing and shoving aside their own feelings. Getting in touch with their tenderest needs and allowing themselves to be fragile, they won’t have much trouble finding someone they can spend years with and sharing more than just words. Although they need a partner that listens, most of all they need someone with whom they can share their silence in peace.


The mission in life of those born on October 5th is to find beauty in all things. This comes as a challenge, especially since they are so eager to turn to their logical mind for answers. Their world is meant to get richer and prettier day by day, as they find the point of balance between their emotional and mental worlds. Their task isn’t to be the brightest bulb in the bunch, but to find a way to incorporate their emotional nature and their need for satisfying, loving contacts into their daily routine. Once they become aware of the value of their feelings, they start using their incredible intellectual power for their own satisfaction in life.

What They Excel In

They can work in risk or flight control with great results, but this typically affects their emotional state greatly and it takes time to realize how restless they’ve become. They function best within a team, where information is shared, and tasks are handed out equally to everyone involved. Once they find their creative core, they will excel in any area of expertise they embark on and share their inner beauty with the rest of the world with tact and wisdom.

October 5th Birthday Gift

Although the best birthday gift for a person born on October 5th seems to be a book, it has to be extremely specific to truly show how well you know them. Most of all, they need a chance to express their feelings, so it might be a good idea to organize a karaoke party or a gathering with people they are free to be themselves with. They will enjoy small signs of affection, presents that are loving and warm, as well as discrete jewelry and cards to follow that speak louder than the gift itself.

Sabian Symbol

"Miners are Surfacing from a Deep Coal Mine"

This symbol puts an accent on the presence of Pluto in their planetary row and adds a shade of darkness that needs to be overcome to their lives. They are to dig for gold within to find humane and living ways to interact, as they find gratitude for the life they’ve been blessed with. They will bring information from deep places in our subconscious world to other people and show that they have nothing to fear as they dive into other realms of existence and go through significant changes in life. There is a positive turn to this symbol, as it gives information of what the world looks like after we’ve done with our fair share of digging through the darkness.
