If Today is Your Birthday: October Twenty Second
Personality Profile for People Born on October 22
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 22nd 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 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:
Although you are personally magnetic, you have a manner that is slightly intimidating to others, making you a little hard to get close to. You give off the subtle impression that perhaps you don’t really need new people in your life. You do, although you tend to be somewhat selective when it comes to your social life, simply because your work is extremely important to you and you value your time. There is a no-nonsense directness about you that inspires trust in others. You give the impression of solidity, strength of character, dependability and honesty. Although you are an idealist and visionary, you still manage to keep your feet on the ground. You don’t seem capable of doing things halfway, and that includes your relationships. You are quite focused on achieving in life.
dependable – idealistic – observant

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 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 1. Because you were born at the end of the sign of Libra, your progressed Sun changed signs shortly after you were born. The ages of 0 to 2 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality–at a very young age. 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 31. The ages of 30 to 32 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 60. The ages of 59 to 61 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical, mindful, and concerned about your personal security.

Numerology of October 22
You were born on the 22nd day, which reduces to a 4. You appear to be a conscientious, hard-working and practical sort of person. You come across as quite capable and disciplined, and somewhat shy and reserved in youth. Your tastes are simple and you enjoy all the quiet pleasures of life: the satisfaction of work well done, home and family, and nature. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 5. You are highly intelligent, productive, and filled with fresh yet practical ideas. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month for you are 4, 13, 22, 31, especially when these days (of any month) fall on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, or Friday; and/or when the Sun is in Cancer or Leo. Secondary days are 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20, 28, 29. The best colors for you are half-shades, greys, and electric blue. Sapphire is a gem that you might want to wear next to your skin.
Birthday Forecast for You
2010 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2011 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

February 13-23, June 15-25, August 18-25, December 18-25
|On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.
March 18-22, May 18-22, September 20-24, November 20-24

|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 9-13, November 30-December 4
|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.

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 King of Hearts. You are desirous, dramatic, and emotional. You value stability and security, but you crave some form of excitement and drama in your life. Your ego can be quite big, but if you channel your need to be looked up to into becoming a “master” or leader in a creative field, success and happiness are yours. Your love card is the Six of Hearts. Partnership is important to you–you feel somewhat lost without it. Your partners may have a hard time understanding what you want, as you can be dictatorial and controlling at times, and other times you can be peace-making and yielding!
