Personality Profile for People Born on October 3
The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 3rd 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 Aquarius 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 rulers of your decanate and quadrant signs are Uranus and Saturn. Uranus adds a sometimes rebellious and willful spin to the personality, while 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.

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 20. The ages of 19 to 21 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 50. The ages of 49 to 51 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 9-10 degrees Libra:
“Having Passed Through Narrow Rapids, A Canoe Reaches Calm Waters“
If Sun is 10-11 degrees Libra:
“A Professor Peering Over His Glasses At His Students“
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (10 degrees Libra) based on harmonic sign influences.
“Mental creativity. Innovative, progressive, reforming, perhaps eccentric. Improvisational and spontaneous. Dislikes conforming to social norms and customs.“
Numerology of October 3
You were born on the 3rd day, suggesting that you are an optimist at heart, even if there are times when you stick to traditions and the safe road. You are hopeful, humorous, and sociable, and others are drawn to this basically happy energy. At your worst, you barely scratch the surface of your interests, preferring not to dig too deeply. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 4, adding a healthy streak of practicality and stamina to your nature. 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 3, 12, 21, 30, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Thursday or second-choice days of the week, Tuesday or Friday; and/or when the Sun is in Pisces or Sagittarius. Second-choice favorable days of the month are 6, 9, 18, 24, 27. The best colors for you are all mauve, violet, or purple. Second-choice best colors are blue, rose, and crimson. You might want to wear amethyst gemstones next to your skin. Properties associated with amethyst are the easing and soothing of transitions, and the building of intuition.
Birthday Forecast for You
2010 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. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year in which to study and analyze. 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.
2011 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.

You are attracted to active, successful people who are also emotional and vibrant. You are charismatic yourself, and can sometimes be impulsive in this area of your life, as you follow your heart and not always logic in love.|
