Personality Profile for People Born on December 16
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on December 16th of any year—based on various methods used in Astrology, Numerology, and Cartomancy. Note that both Astrology and Numerology reveal much more depth when a birth year, and in the case of the former, a birth time and place are included.
The Astrology & Numerology of your Birthday
Your Sun is in Sagittarius in the Leo decanate and Virgo quadrant.
The ruler of your Sun in Sagittarius is Jupiter. Jupiter is jovial, optimistic, idealistic, and philosophical. Secondary rulers of your Sun are the Sun itself and Mercury. The Sun adds a proud, dignified, warm, and authoritative side to your nature; while Mercury lends an analytical, intelligent, mischievous, and communicative bent.
Your Sun Sign:
Sagittarius has a lively personality and is an optimist. Considered one of the most fun-loving signs of the zodiac, Sagittarians are direct, forthright, and sometimes completely tactless as they say exactly what they’re thinking! This can be seen as refreshing honesty, or bluntness, depending on the audience. Sagittarius is restless and inquisitive, and often will make quick jaunts impulsively just for a change of scenery. Constantly seeking out something new and stimulating, Sagittarians often have another goal in mind even before they accomplish the first. Sagittarius is naturally questioning and interested in the big picture, and can be quite philosophical or opinionated.
Planet: Jupiter; Element: Fire; Quality: Mutable; Color: Purple; Day: Thursday; Stone: Turquoise; Part of Body Ruled: Liver and hips; Motto: I philosophize; Energy: Yang
Famous People Born on Your Birthday:
Ludwig van Beethoven, Benjamin Bratt, Jane Austen, Margaret Mead, Steven Bochco, Liv Ullmann.
Fixed Star(s) Near Your Sun:
Sun conjunct Rasalhague
Rasalhague has a Saturn-Venus influence, and suggests a healing, restorative, intense, and sometimes destructive personality. There is a great love of debate, of giving advice, and of helping others, but some might go too far and be harshly opinionated. There is a resourceful, experimental, and brave personality, with some private demons and compulsions to contend with.
Progressed Sun: Turning Points in the Life
We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Sagittarius, I’ll always be a Sagittarius. However, in secondary progressions, the Sun “progresses” in a symbolic sense through our natal Sun sign, and then beyond it to subsequent signs. Secondary progressions are “a day for a year”, and because the Sun moves just under one degree per day, our Sun symbolically progresses just short of one degree every year of our lives. Because there are 30 degrees for every sign, if I were born in the latter days of a Sagittarius Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Capricorn in my early childhood, and to the sign of Aquarius in my early to mid-30’s. If I were born near the beginning of a Sagittarius Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Capricorn close to my 30th birthday, and to Aquarius in my late 50’s. The changeover of signs marks a critical turning point in a person’s life. At the very end of a sign (just before changing signs), individuals may make life-changing, impulsive decisions.
Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 5. The ages of 4 to 6 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical, mindful, and concerned about your personal security. You are a self-starter, and you become more shrewd and focused on your goals.
Your progressed Sun enters Aquarius at age 35. The ages of 34 to 36 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. After some sort of crisis of consciousness, and perhaps elimination of circumstances that have been limiting your growth, you become more humanitarian, somewhat detached, and independent. Some may become self-righteous and fixed during this phase, while others learn to detach themselves from situations and loosen up. You kick up your heels and enjoy life with a certain level of detachment and confidence that you hadn’t discovered before this time.
Degree Meanings of your Sun:
Sabian symbols present imagery associated with the degree of your Sun in Sagittarius. Either of the following may apply, depending on the exact degree of your Sun:
If Sun is 23-24 degrees Sagittarius:
“A Bluebird Perched On The Gate Of A Cottage“
If Sun is 24-25 degrees Sagittarius:
“A Chubby Boy On A Hobby-Horse“
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (24 degrees Sagittarius) based on harmonic sign influences.*
“Honest and straightforward, yet tactful and polite also. Clear grasp of concepts and ideas. Pioneering spirit. Creative, self-motivated activity.“
Numerology of December 16
You were born on the 16th day of the month which reduces to a 7. Intuitive, quirky, spiritual, and a bit of a mystery, you march to the beat of a different drummer. Factoring in the 12th month of December, you are a number 1, bringing a palpable independent streak to the personality. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month according to Numerology are 7, 16, 25, especially when these days (of any month) fall on Sunday or Monday; and/or when the Sun is in Cancer. Second-choice favorable days are 2, 11, 20, and 29. The best colors for you are white, green, and yellow. You might want to wear moonstones, cat’s eyes, and pearls next to your skin.
Birthday Forecast for You
2014 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
You Are Drawn to People Born on…

On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple. January 14-19, May 12-16, July 12-16, November 14-18
A mysterious attraction that can be very romantic…or completely platonic! This is a spiritual connection that has a magical quality to it. February 3-February 7, March 27-31, August 29-September 2, October 22-26
Opposites attract. Push me, pull me. You could complement each other well if you allow yourselves to learn from each other, or you could actively war against each other. June 9-20
Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding. January 24-28, November 3-November 7

What’s in the Cards…
Today’s playing cards are based on an ancient system similar to the Tarot. Each birthday of the year is associated with a main playing card, the Birth Card, and each tells its own story.
|The card associated with your birthday is the Two of Clubs. Intellectually, you are at your very best when talking with a partner and in one-on-one situations. You love bouncing ideas off other people before getting to your own unique conclusion. You are an expert negotiator, and although you have a marked independent streak, you often want to hang out with a special someone or bring someone along on your errands. Your love card is the Queen of Hearts. This is the proverbial bleeding heart of the deck! You are immensely loving and affectionate, and your love life tends to be laced with more than your fair share of drama.|
