As a Libra born on October 4th, your considerate and self-less nature are amongst your most well-known qualities. You are a social creature and greatly enjoy the company of others. When you see someone experiencing a problem, it seems you cannot help put to put their needs before your own. Your understanding and thoughtfulness are greatly appreciated by your friends and loved ones. Whether they have told you or not, some would describe you as the "perfect friend."

Air

Air is your sign's paired element and out of all 12 zodiac signs, you have the only cardinal connection with air. You may feel air's influence in the form of curiosity that stirs within you as if pushed by gentle winds. It is air's influence that makes you an active pursuer of knowledge and understanding in whatever topic peaks your interest. Embracing these qualities of air will play a key role in future successes, but avoid the negative influence of stagnant air, which causes feelings of aloofness to arise.

The Libra's planetary ruler is Venus, but as you were born in the Second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Saturn and Uranus. Being the planet of harmony, beauty and sociability, Venus ties to the presence of these qualities in your personality. Similarly, Uranus and Saturn are linked to your perseverance, humanitarianism and patience. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you far more selfless and serious than the other Libra Decans. In fact, there is little that you would not do for another human being and you apply this same determination into your own goals and pursuits. If you had one difficulty, it would be allowing others to help you in the same way you help them. While you are very quick to assist others that are in need, you often find yourself incapable of asking for assistance. In times of true difficulty, try to embrace those that attempt to reciprocate your support.

While choosing a career is never easy, your natural discipline and thoughtfulness will align well with numerous careers. Since you are a person willing to put in the work, a career in science, research or education may be rewarding. As you are always willing to help others, a career in education or social work could also be a viable option. If you are drawn into the world of writing or creative expression, look to the many works of Anne Rice, who was also born on October 4th, for inspiration. In whichever career path you choose, display the perseverance and dedication of Derrick Rose, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is miners emerging from a deep coal mine. Growth and understanding must be extracted from great depths of self. Work with those around you to help dig into the deeper levels of knowledge and reap the intellectual rewards. It must be remembered that you must dedicate yourself fully in all aspects of life.
