If Today is Your Birthday: October Eighteenth
Personality Profile for People Born on October 18
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 18th of any year—based on various methods used in Astrology and Numerology.

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 5. The ages of 4 to 6 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 35. The ages of 34 to 36 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 64. The ages of 63 to 65 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 24-25 degrees Libra:
“The Sight Of An Autumn Leaf Brings To A Pilgrim The Sudden Revelation Of The
Mystery Of Life And Death”
If Sun is 25-26 degrees Libra:
“An Eagle And A Large White Dove Change Into Each Other”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (25 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.*
“Kind, noble, generous. Excellent leadership qualities. Strong-willed and energetic. Successful in business pursuits. Rich taste.”
Numerology of October 18
You were born on the 18th day, which reduces to a 9. You help others solve problems, even when you don’t have answers for your own predicaments! Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 1. Although you love people and you are a true humanitarian, you know how to stand on your own two feet and you don’t appreciate being told what to do. You are a born leader of some kind. Believe in yourself and have faith in yourself. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month are 9, 18, 27, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday (of the three days of the week, Tuesday is the most favorable); and/or when the Sun is in Aries or Scorpio. Second-choice favorable days of the month are 3, 6, 12, 15, 21, 24, 30. The best colors for you are all shades of crimson or red, rose tones, and pinks. You might want to wear garnet, ruby, or bloodstone stones/gems next to your skin.
Birthday Forecast for You
2010 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. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2011 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
