October 3 Horoscope

Being a Libra born on October 3rd, your selflessness, thoughtfulness and seriousness are amongst your most well-known characteristics. Although you do have a sense of humor, you take life very seriously and make goals which you truly intend to meet. You are most comfortable in a social setting and will go to great lengths to provide your friends with help and support. This quality is greatly appreciated by your friends and family, who often turn to you with their problems.

Air is your paired element and in fact, you are the only zodiac signed with a cardinal connection to air. It is the gentle winds of air's influence that drives you to be an active initiator. Curiosity often stirs within you, as though stimulated by a strong wind. When something is of interest to you, you will pursue it with great vigor. The active influence of air will help you grow socially and intellectually, but air's influence can be detrimental if you embrace it's more stagnant qualities, which include an emotional and social distance.

Venus is your sign's planetary ruler, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Uranus and Saturn. Venus is the planet of harmony, appreciation of beauty and sociability, which explains for the presence of these qualities in your personality. The influence of Uranus and Saturn tie more heavily to your humanitarianism, discipline and patience. It is this unique combination of planetary influence that allows you to be a nearly perfect friend. You enjoy being thoughtful and at times, put the needs of others before your own. This planetary influence will also drive you to success, as you have the interest and fortitude to meet any challenge.

Your natural abilities are well-suited for numerous careers, which makes finding the right career even more difficult. Your considerate and humanitarian demeanor could be a perfect fit for careers such as teaching, fund-raising, social work or other non-profit positions. Your strong will-power and discipline, may take you on a path of law, where you can also use your skills to help others. If the entertainment world is appealing, you may turn to acting, which was the case of Seann William Scott, who was also born on October 3rd. In whichever career you choose, look to the dedication of Gwen Stefani, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for inspiration.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a professor peering over his glasses at his students. Although you may not realize it, you have amassed a great deal of knowledge and understanding in your years. The task is not an easy one, but it is your responsibility to help share your knowledge with patience and kindness.
