You are the last person who needs reminding that life is a school of hard knocks, filled with the exhilarating chaos on which your nature thrives, aided by a potentially wicked sense of humor and a polished, charismatic air.
I can almost see you adopting a James Bond air, blowing those cheeks, wiping that brow, and saying, "Tell me about it ... but I live to fight another day!"
Pain and pleasure are the twinned realities of life, though I suspect you've known more pain due to living life on the edge, leaping in with both feet, and learning as you go.
Of all profiles, you are the most likely to stick your fingers into an electric socket just to find out what goes on in there!
You are your own worst enemy, such is your insatiable inquisitiveness and curiosity.
You like to leave no stone unturned in your pursuit of reward and joy, and there is an indefatigable spirit to the way you embrace life, come what may.
3/5 profiles are here for a fast track lifetime.
In failure, trauma, and survival, you glean wisdom.
Life will bounce you into dead ends, heartbreak, crushing disappointment, and wrong situations while asking you to take the blessings in disguise.
It's almost as if your role is to witness, endure, or lead from the front in order to educate and guide others.
You are a capable and adaptable leader in a crisis, with a wisdom that shapes a visionary element, and there is something of the rebel in you, wanting to challenge authority and point out what is and isn't working.
You want to be a force for change in all areas of life.
Your adaptability makes you expert in a storm of crisis, because you've been there, done that, and know how the drama ends!
Your understanding of life also arms you with a natural forgiveness.
The fascinating mix of this profile is the third-line element, which needs the juice of life, together with the illusory yet hypnotic nature of the fifth line.
This turns you into a charismatic, persuasive seducer, subtly reeling others into relationships, projects, or pursuits.
But it is a profile that is noncommittal by nature and doesn't wish to hang around if there is not a sustainable engagement with its interest.
Nevertheless, you are always strategizing, seeing how it can all work in your best interests, toying with experimental and grand ideas.
If I were in conversation with you, there would be an outgoing, engaging eagerness about your communication style and obvious zest for life.
I daresay you could come across as a bit of a dreamer, but doubtless there would be a multitude of crazy anecdotes, all carried off with a self deprecating humor concealing the pain of the time.
When you fall back on your sharp wit, you are one of the funniest people around.
Humor is both your medicine and your master deflector.
But not a1l 3/5s can look on the bright side.
Life can become too much and leave you defeated.
You can get to the point where all you crave is a settled life.
You are done with the trials, tribulations, and tests and want to throw in the towel.
When 3/5 profiles feel beaten, despite their best efforts, they surrender.
But their nature will not rest and will always seek to propel them into a fresh adventure.
So surrendering will only exacerbate any inner frustrations.
The third line will never stop catapulting the 3/5 into all sorts of relationships, projects, travels, travails, purchases, and lifestyles.
The unconscious fifth line sometimes paddles hard to make real life match the fantasies.
Ultimately, you are seeking the reward for your hardship.
You are always seeking that special someone who can bring inner peace amid the chaos.
When that person is found, commitment is total.
In accepting chaos, you accept yourself. Life will never be a destination but is an eternal journey.
Embrace it, find medicine in laughter, and absorb all the consequential wisdoms that make people admire you so much.
And at the end of your days, I guarantee you will have traveled, loved and lost, succeeded and failed, and amassed a veritable library of personal experiences to recall and ponder.
Relationships: It is quite possible that 3/5 partners have no real idea of how restless they are, particularly in a relationship.
Of course, they will have the gift of gab and say all the right things, but as they're stroking your face and whispering sweet nothings, keep an eye out for the feet inching toward the exit door.
An escape clause should be written into any love contract with a third line element, especially when coupled with the dreamy nature of the fifth line, which brings a strong degree of romanticism and big promises.
The 3/5 profile is forever in search of the perfect relationship and will not compromise its ideals.
Did I say "perfect"? What I meant to say was "purrr-fect,"
These people need to be met, and understood, on every possible level before they give 100 percent commitment. These are highly selective individuals when searching for a life mate.
One thing you need to appreciate is the essential ingredient to throw into the mix with a 3/5 partner laughter.
Let life bring the dark side; let you be the source of light.
They can be deeply emotional partners, but the tears of laughter need to balance the tears of pain.
Grant them this much and you will come to know and admire a true ally and arbiter and the bridge builder of an unpredictable but exciting future.
When 3/5s feel they have met their match, they bring the greatest level of commitment and stability to a relationship that is possible.
Just be prepared to be dragged off in pursuit of big dreams!
Compatibility: Your ideal matches are with other3/5s and 6/2 profiles, but away from that synergy you also find common ground with 3/6, 5/1, 5/2, and 6/3 profiles.
