Approaching the end of Sun's movement through the cardinal sign of Libra, we see that the pressure of change becomes a bit higher and it isn’t exactly easy to go with the flow. This is a date filled with new opportunities to connect, but also burdened by fear of the speed of life and the future that might come. People born at this time can’t always move with the flow, even though they would want to, finding it difficult to make fast decisions when they are needed and feeling guilty for their natural pace of making choices.
Family matters pointed out in this row speak of difficulties connecting with one's father figure, and Libras born on October 21st often have intense trouble with authority and keeping their authentic center stable in company of others. They might even feel as if their role is only to reflect what others say and do, without ever taking the lead, even though their decision making process is happening in the background all the time. Their nature is filled with light and they are meant to be joyful, but this will only be the case when the circumstances in their primal family are extremely beneficent and open for personal growth. In general, they won’t find it easy to connect as deeply as they’d like to, failing to understand that standing in one place is also a decision they make even if they don’t really do anything.
The Sabian symbol for Libra representatives born on October 21st in every year:
The symbol for those born on this date tells the story of discovered faith, and letting go to the Universal thought rather than thinking anything depends on any individual. This is a good first step to find their boundaries and grounding in the world surrounding them, so they can act out of freewill and in tune with their highest moral standards. Pushed aside one too many times by those who seem more aggressive than they are, they come to learn that it is the course of destiny meant to teach them something in time, and this gives them enough peace to begin with. Still, this can be tricky when their responsibility towards Self is impaired, and they might start believing that all their misadventures and painful issues are a given and cannot be changed. The inner struggle will end when they put their own heart on top of their priority list and realize that nothing is as worth as fighting for it.
As acceptance kicks in, everything turns for the better. Many Libras born on October 21st discover a religion to look up to, and some find their career and professional world to be the place where they can shine. With Saturn to represent their purpose, we must recognize their need to get enough rest, relax their body, breathe in, and make their routine as light and supportive of their body as humanly possible. With enough sleep they begin to regenerate, remembering boundaries that need to be made and taking responsibility for themselves instead of holding on to the circumstantial and things that are obviously out of their control.
Love and Emotions
Relationships of Libras born on the 21st of October are tender and filled with warm emotions at first. In order for the sensation to last, they need to be stable in their own desires and limitations, so that they don’t feel too elusive to their partner. They need someone patient but still pushy enough to not let them stay stuck in one place for too long, and could easily end up in symbiotic relationships where both partners compensate for each other's shortcomings instead of enjoying their time together.
Governed by family patterns, they sometimes repeat the bond of their parents, as if they held on to loyalties too firmly, and this is the loop they would rather get out of. Things need to get personal and deep, and these individuals are to hold on firmly to their authentic attitudes and the system of value, if they are to be truly happy in any bond. Once they learn to separate their own inner world from influences that shaped them over the years, they become stable partners one can rely on and stay with for years to come.
What They Excel In
People born on October 21st excel in all sorts of counseling, debates and reasoned dialogues with all facts in their hands. Creative work soothes them and makes them feel focused on their inner world, often turning their interests to design and decoration. Mellow enough to work within a team, they need enough solitude and individual efforts and tasks to keep their confidence high and keep them out of the collective flow that disturbs their inner world and makes it shady.
Heliodor stones, known in the past as magic stones, are a very good choice for those born on the 21st of October.
