October 6 Horoscope

As a Libra born on October 6th, you are well known for your sensitivity and thoughtfulness. You are very considerate and always take the needs of others into mind, sometimes even more than your own needs. You always offer an understanding ear to friends and family members that turn to you with their problems. In true self-less fashion, you are one of those rare individuals who would honestly give the shirt of their back to help another human being.

Air is your paired element and you are the only zodiac sign with a cardinal relationship with air. It is air's influence that drives you to be active and a self-starter. You find yourself pushed towards intellectual and social pursuits as if you were encouraged by strong winds. As you embrace the active qualities of air, they will be amongst your strongest assets, but be weary of air's less active qualities, which may materialize in an unemotional or aloof state.

The Libra's ruling planet is Venus, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Uranus and Saturn. Being the planet of harmony and sociability, Venus is linked to these aspects of your personality. Saturn and Uranus are more tied with your more serious qualities, including your discipline, patience and your concern for human welfare. Your unique combination of planetary powers makes you far more selfless and driven for success than the other Libra Decans. Your commitment to others is admirable, but you often have a difficult time receiving the same help that you give so freely. As you continue to follow serious goals, you will stay on a path to success, but if you cannot learn to expose your vulnerable side to loved ones, this path will become much more difficult that it has to be.

Choosing a career is often the most difficult decision in life, but your natural discipline and social skills give you a variety of career options. You may find humanitarian careers rewarding, such as education, counseling or social work. Your discipline and need for freedom may lead you on a more entrepreneurial path, much like Leslie Moonves, who was also born on October 6th. In whichever career you choose, use your perseverance and discipline to achieve success, similarly to Tony Dungy, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a man taking a siesta in the noon heat. You may have recently had an emotionally, physically or spiritually draining experience. In times such as these, the value of recuperation should be lost. Embrace the opportunities for relaxation given by everyday society.
