Born October 17

If Today is Your Birthday: October Seventeenth


Personality Profile for People Born on October 17

The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 17th 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 Personality Profile:

You have strong opinions and possess much determination. Your insight into human nature makes up part of your appeal to others. Your tendency to bang your head against the wall and to become frustrated easily is something that you outgrow and/or temper over the years. Your strong ideals and emotions, if channeled constructively, can bring you much success in your chosen profession. Communication is important to you, although your own communication style is moody. You are highly intelligent and possess the ability to “hit the nail on the head”. Although you can be blunt at times, you generally come across well to others, simply because they can sense your good intentions.

idealistic – emotional – restless

Your Sun Sign


Libra the Scales

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.

Libra, the scales: Planet: Venus; Element: Air; Quality: Cardinal; Color: pink or green; Day: Friday; Stone: Opal; Part of Body Ruled: adrenal glands, kidneys; Motto: I weigh; Energy: Yang

Fixed Star(s) Near Your Sun:

Sun Conjunct Arcturus

This fixed star has a Mars/Jupiter influence, endowing you with self-determination, success in life after some early setbacks, and good luck through travel.

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 6. The ages of 5 to 7 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 36. The ages of 35 to 37 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, more free, and decidedly more outgoing. Your desire to learn increases, and your sense of humor is enriched.

Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 65. The ages of 64 to 66 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 Symbol:

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 23-24 degrees Libra:

“A Butterfly With A Third Wing On Its Left Side”

If Sun is 24-25 degrees Libra:

“The Sight Of An Autumn Leaf Brings To A Pilgrim The Sudden Revelation Of The

Mystery Of Life And Death”

Harmonic Degree Meaning:

The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (24 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.*

“Good understanding of the inner, emotional needs of others. Aptitude for social work and psychology. Aggressive protector of home, country, and his/her ideals.”

Numerology of October 17

You were born on the 17th day, which reduces to an 8. You learn best through practical experience—your own—rather than through theory. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 9. You need to carry out your own plans and ideas in order to feel accomplished and personally successful. You must watch for a tendency to try to force issues. Anger and impatience must be channeled into constructive or creative endeavors. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.

Most Favorable Days of the Month are 8, 17, 26, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Saturday; and/or when the Sun is in Capricorn. The best colors for you are dark ones–dark grey, black, dark blue, and deep purple. You might want to wear amethyst, sapphire, black pearl, or black diamond next to your skin.

Birthday Forecast for You

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.

2011 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.

Forecast for the Year Ahead (October 2010 to October 2011):

A highly creative year is in your forecast! If you work in creative fields, you’ll experience a fabulous boost, and even if you don’t, you will find that your imagination and intuition serve you very well. At times, though, you might find that your energy is up and down and you might be attracted to impractical ventures. As long as you keep your feet on the ground, you can go far. You will be working hard, nevertheless. Cooperation and going with the flow are highly recommended.

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 8-18, June 10-20, August 13-20, December 13-20

On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.

March 13-17, May 13-17, September 15-19, November 15-19

A mysterious attraction that can be very romantic…or completely platonic! This is a spiritual connection that has a magical quality to it.

January 26-30, June 30-July 4, August 23-27, December 5-9

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 9-19

Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.

September 4-8, November 25-29

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.

January 10-20, February 26-March 2, May 29-June 2, July 11-21, August 30-September 3, October 12-22, November 30-December 4

Creative, communicative, inspiring, and spiritually rewarding connections.

March 7-11, May 19-23, August 2-6, December 26-30

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 Five of Clubs. You are emotional, restless, and sometimes quite intense. You have a strong desire to make a difference in life–to carve your own identity and style and to be recognized for these things. Your mind is sharp, and you are an independent and highly creative thinker. Although different, your ideas are accepted by others overall, as people sense your sincerity. Somewhat rebellious, you don’t readily accept labels or restrictions by authority. Your love card is the Ace of Spades, suggesting an attraction to people with “issues”–to those who have an aura of mystery around them, and who tend to have problems to solve. You seek a powerful and even dramatic connection to a partner.

    Can u give me info on this date oct 17 male & march 23 female relationship & it’s success. On & off 11 years now. U nailed oct 17 description but with things on. On now & good & I march 23 been patient for yrs now learning him & yes he melts then pulls away. Opens up to me a lot personally But I still don’t know how he really feels. Shows it some but then not real direct. Where can we go. Can it work out to be permanent. I can say I’ve been able to get rid of some of the immaturity. I have to end up communicating in text or via lyrics of a song what I need or where we should be. Strange but I can see where he received it. But then he’ll put a week or two of space in between us. Why? I feel he have company with someone else to balance he feelings about us. Telling him it’s just one girl. I’m still single. He’s a 55 yr old quiet still nerdy yet quiet cool dude. Some sneakiness but he’s not real good at trying play. Used to keep drama. But things have really slowed down a lot. Where are we now. Thanks?
