October 9 Horoscope

Being a Libra born on October 9th, your are well-known for a serious, thoughtful and selfless demeanor. You genuinely enjoy helping others and often find yourself taking any opportunity to assist others. You are great at providing a patient and non-judgmental ear for friends and loved ones, allowing them to sort through their problems in a comfortable setting. These qualities make you a highly valued friend, especially when it is obvious that you are putting the needs of others above your own.

Air is your element and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with a fundamental connection to air. It is air's influence that causes you to be such an active initiator and self-starter. You are driven by curiosity and often find yourself pushed towards pursuits of knowledge as if backed by a strong wind. As you continue to embrace the active qualities of air, you will be successful in your intellectual and social pursuits, but be careful to avoid the qualities of still air, which include aloofness and a lack of sociability.

Your sign'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 mysterious powers of Saturn and Uranus. Venus is the planet of sociability and harmony, which explains why these qualities appear so strongly in your personality. Similarly, it is Saturn and Uranus that can be credited with your exceptional patience, discipline and commitment to human welfare. Your unique planetary influence makes you much more self-sacrificing than other Libra Decans. While you can help others with ease, it is far more difficult for you to accept help, which is a fact that often frustrates those closest to you. Although it is difficult to open up about insecurities, allow your friends to reciprocate your thoughtfulness when you really do need it.

Your natural discipline and social skills pair nicely to fit a variety of careers, although choosing one and sticking to it is easier said than done. Analytical careers such as research, writing and education may be well-geared for your sharp mind. Similarly, you may find it rewarding to dedicate your life to helping others, in careers such as counseling or social work. the world of entertainment may be alluring, much like the path of Steve Burns, who was also born on October 9th. In whichever career you choose, let the inspiring and groundbreaking music of John Lennon, another of your celebrity birthday twins, serve as encouragement.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a retired sea captain watching ships leave and enter the harbor. There may be something in life that you wish to experience, but are unable to.
