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 15. The ages of 14 to 16 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 45. The ages of 44 to 46 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.

Numerology of October 8
You were born on the 8th day, which suggests you have a strong need for security and you are willing to put in the extra effort to achieve it. You are a better planner than the typical Libra personality. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 9, which suggests you are a true humanitarian. You can be rather moody at times, but very wise as well, especially as you age. 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
2010 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.
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.
January 30-February 9, June 1-June 11, August 4-11, December 4-10
|On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.
March 4-8, May 4-8, September 6-10, November 6-10
|A mysterious attraction that can be very romantic…or completely platonic! This is a spiritual connection that has a magical quality to it.
January 17-21, June 21-25, August 14-18, November 26-30
|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.
March 31-April 10
|Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.
August 26-30, November 16-20
|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 1-11, February 17-21, May 20-24, July 2-12, August 21-25, October 3-13, November 21-25
|Creative, communicative, inspiring, and spiritually rewarding connections.

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 Ace of Diamonds. Some believe that, with Ace of Diamonds as your birthday card, you can’t seem to have both love and money in your life–that money and love are mutually exclusive for you! The reason for this, however, has to do with your tendency to pour your heart into one particular endeavor at a time. It’s not true in absolute terms, but it has the truth in it! You are intense, love life, and possess much determination and ambition. Your love card is the 5 of Hearts, suggesting you pour your emotions into a relationship. Love does not scare you!|
