The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on November 5th 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 rulers of your Sun in Scorpio are Pluto and Mars. You are intense, passionate, perceptive, and determined. Your need to know, combined with superb intuition, makes you an excellent detective. Secondary rulers of your decanate and quadrant signs are Neptune and Uranus. Neptune adds mystery, a colorful imagination, intuition, and creativity to the mix. Uranus adds a sometimes rebellious and willful spin to the personality.

Scorpio the Scorpion
Scorpio is determined, strong, intense, and often controlled. Anything that is superficial doesn’t appeal to the scorpion. It’s all or nothing! Scorpio is never content to look only at the surface of matters. Scorpio digs deep, questions motives, and instinctively feels what is going on in the environment around him or her.

Sun Conjunct Alphecca
This fixed star has a Venus-Mercury influence, and suggests much artistic ability. You may think in poetic terms, or enjoy a healthy “play on words”. This influence may suggest a real love of pleasure and some excesses. Scandal may be an issue at some point in life, but if it occurs, it doesn’t point to a reversal in position. The mind is active, creative, and even brilliant. You believe in your ability to achieve, and you do so quietly.
|We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Scorpio, I’ll always be a Scorpio. 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 was born in the latter days of a Scorpio Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Sagittarius in my early childhood, and to the sign of Capricorn in my early to mid-30’s. If I was born near the beginning of a Scorpio Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Sagittarius close to my 30th birthday, and to Capricorn 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 Sagittarius at age 17. The ages of 16 to 18 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 begin to feel lighter, freer, and decidedly more outgoing. Your desire to learn increases, and your sense of humor is enriched. You are more flexible during this period as well.
Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 46. The ages of 45 to 47 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.
Sabian symbols present imagery associated with the degree of your Sun in Scorpio. Either of the following may apply, depending on the exact degree of your Sun:
If Sun is 12-13 degrees Scorpio:
“An Inventor Performs A Laboratory Experiment”
If Sun is 13-14 degrees Scorpio:
“Telephone Lineman At Work Installing New Connections”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (13 degrees Scorpio) based on harmonic sign influences.*
“Instinctive, dynamic, self-reliant, magnetic. A hard worker; likes to get right into the work and dislikes idle talk. Pioneering spirit.”
You were born on the 5th day of the month. Your ability to adapt rather swiftly to any given situation is a strength. You possess a love of freedom, and you generally make connections with others easily. Factoring in the 11th month of November, you are a number 7. Your imagination is vivid, and your ability to size up any situation in the blink of an eye helps you throughout life. Close personal relationships, however, may be rocky at times, as you tend to expect much on spiritual and emotional levels. You may feel misunderstood by those closest to you. 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 5, 14, 23, especially when these days (of any month) fall on Wednesday or Friday (in that order); and/or when the Sun is in Virgo or Gemini. The best colors for you are light grey, silver, white, and anything that glistens or shimmers. Avoid dark colors. You might want to wear diamonds or any shiny jewels/stones next to your skin.
2012 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2013 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s "nose to the grindstone" time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. In some cases, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new significant relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
|Easy, subtle attraction and harmony: You don’t feel an irresistible pull towards each other, but over time, appreciate the peace you have between you. These people are good for you, although they might not challenge you to grow.
January 1-8, February 27-March 9, June 29-July 9, September 1-8
|On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.
April 1-5, June 1-5, October 4-8, December 4-8

February 14-18, July 19-23, September 11-15, December 24-28
|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.
April 28-May 8
|Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.
September 23-27, December 14-18
|Powerful, tumultuous attraction–you are aware of the distinct differences between you, but may be drawn to each other because of the simultaneous awareness of a need and a lack. Either the relationship is ongoing and obviously tumultuous and of a “love-hate” nature, or it flows well until it breaks unexpectedly.

|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 Diamonds. You are a born negotiator. Able to quickly hone in on what makes people tick, you find it easy to smooth over any given situation, and you gravitate towards people who are helpful. You are a rather ambitious person who is likely to be quite successful and not financially wanting. Your love card is the Eight of Clubs, suggesting that you are attracted to, or you attract, successful and strong people as romantic partners. You need lively discussions with a partner, and you appreciate a lover who is able to hold their own intellectually.|
There’s certainly something magical about birthdays, but much more information can be obtained with the birth date and birth year. 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 considered.
