If Today is Your Birthday: October Sixteenth
Personality Profile for People Born on October 16
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 16th of any year—based on various methods used in Astrology and Numerology. 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 Libra in the Gemini decanate and the Cancer quadrant.
The ruler of your Sun is Venus. Venus bestows a charming, sometimes indulgent nature, with a love of comfort and peace.
Secondary rulers of your decanate and quadrant signs are Mercury and the Moon. Mercury adds an analytical, intelligent, and communicative side to your nature, and the Moon enhances emotionality, warmth, and affection.

Your Sun Sign
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.

Progressed Sun: Turning Points in the Life
|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 7. The ages of 6 to 8 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 37. The ages of 36 to 38 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.
Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 66. The ages of 65 to 67 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical and concerned about your personal security.
Degree Meanings of your Sun:
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 22-23 degrees Libra:
“Chanticleer’s Voice Heralds Sunrise”
If Sun is 23-24 degrees Libra:
“A Butterfly With A Third Wing On Its Left Side”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (23 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.
“Intuitive and subjective. Self-sacrificing worker and a helper of the needy. Idealistic and spiritual values. Dedicated to home and family.”
Numerology of October 16
You were born on the 16th day, which reduces to a 7. Your powers of intuition are strong, and you often rely on your hunches when you make decisions. An inner restlessness might find you traveling or “finding yourself”. At some point in your life, you need to work for a cause or a charity. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 8. Because of your sweet demeanor, it might surprise some people to know that you are strongly individualistic and you possess much conviction and determination. Your ability to combine intuition and good common sense can take you far in life. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month 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
2010 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2011 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.
You Are Drawn to People Born on…
|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.
February 7-17, June 9-19, August 12-19, December 12-19
|On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.
March 12-16, May 12-16, September 14-18, 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.
January 25-29, June 29-July 3, August 22-26, December 4-8
|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.
|Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.
September 3-7, November 24-28
|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.

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 Six of Clubs. You are at once peace-loving and hard-working. You appreciate the comforts of home and family, and you don’t always feel like painting the town red. However, you are enthusiastic about your work. A work from home job may be what you strive for. With the Queen of Hearts as your love card, you are a very ardent, charming lover, and you may be drawn to partners who are emotional and a tad dramatic.|
