October 17 Zodiac

Libra – Air

Versatile and sociable, you have an attraction for people and change that stimulates variety and excitement in your life. The influence of your birthday indicates that you are mentally quick and alert and are usually seeking new intellectual horizons to keep your inquisitive mind active. With a magnetic charm and fast wit, you can be very entertaining, although a tendency toward uncertainty or impatience can detract from your sense of purpose.

With the added influence of your decanate ruler, Gemini, you can be logical, articulate, and good at problem solving. The ability to be diplomatic yet go straight to the heart of a matter provides you with excellent communication skills. It would be wise, however, not to spoil your charms by being obstinate, calculating, or secretive. A feel for the arts may find expression through music, painting, or drama as well as a desire to surround yourself with beauty, style, and luxury.

Expressive and adaptable, you may need to develop your great mental potential through concentration and thoroughness. Being very instinctive and having a spirit of enterprise, you may work better when you think big and act upon your intuition rather than dwell in pessimism or indecision. Your desire for activity and good fortune can even extend to travel and opportunities to work abroad. With a love of luxury and the good life, you would be wise to guard against escapism or immoderation in any form.

After you reach the age of six, your progressed Sun moves into Scorpio, emphasizing over the next thirty years issues concerning your emotional power and transformation. A turning point occurs at the age of thirty-six, when your progressed Sun moves into Sagittarius, stimulating you to be more adventurous and freedom-loving or to widen your horizons. After the age of sixty-six, when your progressed Sun enters Capricorn, you become more practical, mindful, and prudent.
