If Today is Your Birthday: October Second
Personality Profile for People Born on October 2
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 2nd 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 Astrology & Numerology of your Birthday
Your Sun is in Libra in the Libra decanate and Capricorn quadrant.
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.

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.

Fixed Star(s) Near Your Sun
Sun Conjunct Vindemiatrix
This fixed star has a Saturn/Mercury influence, giving you the ability to focus and concentrate, mental determination, a fascination with and gift with words and wordplay, and the tendency to worry. Fear of misrepresentation is often present.
Progressed Sun: Turning Points in Your 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 21. The ages of 20 to 22 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 51 . The ages of 50 to 52 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.
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 8-9 degrees Libra:
“Three “Old Masters” Hanging On The Wall Of A Special Room In An Art Gallery“
If Sun is 9-10 degrees Libra:
“Having Passed Through Narrow Rapids, A Canoe Reaches Calm Waters”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (9 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.
“Mature, reflective, self-controlled disposition. Detached, objective thinker. Works hard for family. Simple tastes, dislikes unnecessary luxuries.“
Numerology of October 2
You were born on the 2nd day, suggesting that you work very well when you are partnered. You are especially happy and productive when you have a companion at your side, and you love to share with others one-on-one. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 3, adding a sociable, somewhat restless, and playful side to you. 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 2, 11, 20, 29, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Monday, Sunday, or Friday, in that order; and/or when the Sun is in Cancer or Leo. Second-choice favorable days of the month are 1, 7, 10, 16, 19, 25, 28. The best colors for you are all shades of greens, cream, and white. You might want to wear pearls, moonstones, or jade next to your skin. As an emblem of modesty, chastity and purity, the pearl symbolizes love, success, and happiness.
Birthday Forecast for You
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.

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.
