The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 1st 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 ruler of your Sun in Libra is Venus. Venus bestows a charming, sometimes indulgent nature, with a love of comfort and peace. Secondary ruler of your quadrant sign is Saturn. Saturn reveals a more deliberate, serious, and responsible side to your nature.

Libra is fair-minded, socially aware, and likable. Uncomfortable with anything that throws things out of balance, Libra aims towards harmony and equality. Decisions are often hard to make, and when there are too many of them to make, they can feel drained. Oftentimes they’ll procrastinate so they don’t have to settle on a solution or answer. This is because Libra always sees both sides to any situation. Partnerships are extremely important to Libra–Librans don’t like to go it alone. For the most part, Libra is accommodating and concerned about keeping the peace.

Sun Conjunct Diadem
You are imaginative, sometimes restless, and often experience divine discontent, as you frequently desire more from life than the mundane. You need to be careful that you don’t waste too much time yearning instead of building. You can be very charming.
|We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Libra, I’ll always be a Libra. 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 Libra Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Scorpio in my early childhood, and to the sign of Sagittarius in my early to mid-30’s. If I were born near the beginning of a Libra Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Scorpio close to my 30th birthday, and to Sagittarius 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 Scorpio at age 22. The ages of 21 to 23 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. Circumstances are such that you develop a slightly thicker skin. You become more passionate and have less of a need to rely on others for support, and your power to make decisions improves.
Your progressed Sun enters Sagittarius at age 52 . The ages of 51 to 53 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.
Sabian symbols present imagery associated with the degree of your Sun in Libra. Either of the following may apply, depending on the exact degree of your Sun:
If Sun is 7-8 degrees Libra:
“A Blazing Fireplace In A Deserted Home”
If Sun is 8-9 degrees Libra:
“Three “Old Masters” Hanging On The Wall Of A Special Room In An Art Gallery“
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (8 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.
“Cordial, ingratiating, sophisticated, mature disposition. Successful in business.“
You were born on the 1st day of the month, suggesting that you are independent, self-reliant, and possess considerable personal magnetism. You are more decisive than most Librans. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 2, and although you are able to function alone and you value your independence, companionship is extremely important to you. Bouncing ideas off someone really gets you going, and although you come to your own conclusions, others help to jumpstart your thinking processes. Factoring in your birth year gives your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month (according to Numerology) are 1, 10, 19, 28, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Sunday or Monday; and/or when the Sun is in Cancer or Leo. Second-choice favorable days of the month are 2, 11, 20, 29. The best colors for you are all shades of yellows and oranges. You might want to wear ruby gems next to your skin. Properties associated with ruby are power, wealth, attraction, and dynamism.
2010 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2011 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year in which to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
|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 23-February 2, May 25-June 4, July 28-August 4, November 27-December 3

February 25-March 1, April 27-May 1, August 30-September 3, October 30-November 3

January 10-14, June 14-18, August 7-11, November 19-23
|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.
March 25-April 3
|Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.
August 19-23, November 9-13
|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 Eight of Diamonds. You are willing to work hard for what you want, and you generally appear to be confident. You have a good head for business, and you are also quick to respond to changes. Your love card is the Three of Hearts, indicating a passionate and friendly approach to love. While you are generally quite decisive, in love you are not as certain. You are attracted to sociable, creative, and sensitive mates.|
