October 8 Zodiac

Libra – Air

Although you are charming and friendly, the urge for action and personal accomplishment revealed by your birthday suggests that you are a strong-willed and ambitious individual. Charismatic and determined, you possess intuitive leadership and the ability to mix business with pleasure. With a quick grasp of a situation, you prefer to be honest and straightforward. Enterprising and success-oriented, you have the ability to have fortunate ideas and to share them with others, and this is a major key to your success.

With the added influence of your decanate ruler, Aquarius, you can be inventive and productive and are often a good psychologist. Broad-minded in your approach, you have excellent skills for dealing with people, and you usually value freedom. Although independent, you enjoy exercising your natural diplomatic ability to work cooperatively with others as part of a team. There are times, however, when you are in danger of being too bossy or dictatorial, especially with people who fail to reach your high expectations.

Your active imagination and appreciation of the arts may possibly find expression through writing, music, painting, or drama as well as through a desire to surround yourself with beauty, style, and luxury. However, you may have to be careful that too great a love of the good life does not cause you to overindulge or place too much emphasis on material achievement.

At the age of fifteen, when your progressed Sun moves into Scorpio, you reach a turning point in your life that emphasizes issues regarding emotional change and personal transformation over the next thirty years. Another turning point occurs at the age of forty-five, when your progressed Sun moves into Sagittarius, indicating a growing need for freedom and a desire to expand your horizon and take more risks. From this time you may also have more connection with foreign people and places. From the age of seventy-five, when your progressed Sun enters Capricorn, you begin to take your duties and practical considerations more seriously.
