October 26 Horoscope

As a Scorpio born on October 26th, you have the unique gifts of passion, ambition and composure. You're cool, calm and collected in most things, preferring to be calculated in life. You are never content with second place, as you are only satisfied being the best in all that you do. This drive for success creates an inner passion that drives your work and efforts. While others may quit in the face of adversity, you only dig in deeper, working tirelessly to overcome challenges.

Water is your sign's paired element and in fact, out of all 12 zodiac signs, you are the only to have a fixed relationship with water. Your connection with water makes you as determined and as stubborn as the open ocean, but it also allows you to dive into the depths of emotion comfortably. Water's influence allows you to be in-tune with your own emotions and it allows you to understand the emotions of others. Although water's influence allows you to be compassionate, spending too much time in the realms of emotions can lead to moodiness and emotional instability.

Your sign's ruling planet is Pluto and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, Pluto's influence is twice as strong within you. Pluto is the planet of transformation, power and regeneration, which explains why you strive for these things in life. You wont be satisfied until you reach the level of success that you desire, which makes you ever-ambitious, especially in financial matters. Although your ambition is one of your greatest assets, be careful to avoid abusing your power. If you begin to rely too heavily on manipulation and selfish ambition, your personal relationships will suffer.

Your natural abilities create possibilities in a variety of career paths. Your ambition and understanding of others might make a good fit for a career in business, public relations or advertising. If you find a cause to commit to, you may enjoy the world of politics, much like Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was also born on October 26th. If the entertainment world is more appealing, you may be drawn to the world of television or acting, which was the case for Pat Sajak, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a youth carrying a lighted candle in a devotional ritual. Although cultural symbols can seem a bit dated at times, you should not ignore the impact of symbols. Take time to re-evaluate common symbols in your life, as you may find new, deeper meanings in them.
